Business Suing

So it seems that many Businesses in British Columbia are planning to sue, to deny the Petition that Opposes the HST.  Guess they don’t want to be under the public eye, to the point where they want to SHUT US UP!

In short, these so called Business Leaders think that somehow they are ABOVE THE RIGHTS OF THE PEOPLE!    After all, isn’t Government supposed to serve their interests, BEFORE they serve the Public Interest?  I mean they did pay for them, didn’t they?

We can thank people like Stephen Harper [and his mentor Brian Mulroney] for this kind of BULLSHIT.  Their ATTACK PHILOSOPY has given Business a way to scare off people from taking part in the real Democratic Process.

Sometimes you just have to shake your head at those in charge. I mean let’s be honest, these IDOTS take us FOR FOOLS.  They actually believe that we buy into their CRAP that if they get to save 7% on the PST, that they will pass it on to the consumer.  

SORRY BUT I WASN’T BORN YESTERDAY!

What today’s Business leaders fail to understand, is that we don’t have endless amounts of cash to buy their stuff, no matter how much we may need it. I don’t know, but I sure as fuck can’t afford a new car every three or so years.

I can’t afford a new washer & dryer every couple of years.

I can’t afford a new house every five or so years.

I can’t afford to pay high prices for stuff that falls apart after a few months.

When you manufacture stuff that is designed to deteriorate after the warranty expires, there comes a time when people will say enough is enough.

With the loss of high paying jobs to foreign markets [thank you Stephen Harper] and only low paying jobs being created, to add to our tax burden with some BULLSHIT HARMONIZED SALES TAX is just the last straw.

I SAY WE SHOULD RECALL EVERY SINGLE POLITICIAN WHO DARES TO IGNORE OUR RIGHTS.       

Are you listening Ida Chong? Gordon Campbell? Stephen Harper? Gary Lunn?

HST Bullshit

rip off consumersThis morning’s Time Colonist newspaper has a cute little graph, about how this new harmonized tax will be of benefit to business.  Course it makes it sound like business is this benevolent organization, but we all know the truth.  They aren’t.

To begin with, the misconception in the graph is that business pays PST on raw materials it uses to make the finished goods. BULLSHIT!   They are PST EXEMPT which was one of the arguments given WHEN MULRONEY GAVE US THE GST SCAM.   The whole REBATE BULLSHIT was simply a way for the Government to scam money and make it sound like even business was in the same boat as the consumer.

BOTTOM LINE IS THE CONSUMER PAYS & KEEPS PAYING.

The whole idea that consumers will benefit by gaining cheaper products is absolute BULLSHIT.   Business that now pays PST and won’t under the HST, isn’t about to suddenly reduce their prices one single penny.   WHEN THE GST WAS IMPLEMENTED, THAT WAS THE SAME ARGUMENT & PROVED TO BE TOTALLY 100% FALSE.

PRICES DID NOT GO DOWN TO THE CONSUMER

In addition, items that the consumer buys today that is PST EXEMPT, NO LONGER WILL BE. Common Sense tells you that if stuff you bought had no PST and now does, it COSTS MORE TO BUY IT.

This is a bad tax, that benefits some businesses, while bringing others to it’s knees. 

TIME TO TOSS THESE FUCKERS OUT OF OFFICE!

We should run Stephen Harper out of the country, along with the other BOUGHT AND PAID FOR POLITICIANS.

You know it is funny. The Liberals in BC got rid of Gordon Wilson as leader, because he had an affair and yet their new leader, Gordon Campbell got convicted of DRUNK DRIVING and remains as leader.   In the US  Gary Hart was forced to drop out of the Presidential Race for having an affair, but Bill Clinton is still a popular Politician who had an affair in the OVAL OFFICE. Not to mention how he kept lying to the public for nine long months.

GO FIGURE…      TIME TO FIND FRESH PEOPLE WHO WANT TO SERVE US, NOT THEIR POCKET BOOKS OR THEIR ADDICTIONS TO BOOZE, SEX, & POWER.

Net Neutrality A Goner

ICANN announced that it was approving the application for a XXX Top Level Domain.  Guess it goes to show you, throw money at anything, and eventually principles and ethics get tossed out the window.  Segregation and Racism succeed, because the guy behind the request, has the bucks to keep on pushing it.

SEGREGATION does not work, never has. All one needs to do is look at how it screwed things up in the United States, in South Africa, and for an extreme view of what segregation leads to, one only has to look at NAZI GERMANY.

Democracy is never easy, it is about insuring the rights of all, even when those you are defending maybe abhorrent to your own way of life, to thinking.  To me, PORN is not evil,nor does it lead to sex crimes. In fact there are studies that show where the Internet is not available, has a higher rate of sex related crimes, and others, than similar communities that have Internet access.

PLUS it comes down to accepting one’s own responsibilities. IF you are a parent, it is YOUR obligation to know what your child is doing, not some stranger, not some agency. PORN will always exist, because ordinary folk like to see it, like to fantasize about sex.  It is called having a healthy mental attitude.

Sure there are excesses in everything, from gambling, drinking, eating, to watching porn, but that doesn’t make it evil. NOR does some Religious Group saying so,  make it so.

To this day, many Religious people believe that the Jews killed Christ, and so are doomed to wander for eternity. History has shown it wasn’t the Jews who did it, but today, many still believe it, because some religious leader says so. 

EVIL is when we act out of fear, out of ignorance instead of protecting the rights of all people, including those who are DIFFERENT.   NAZI GERMANY should have taught us something, but it is obvious it didn’t. The elimination of MILLIONS was because a lunatic thought that one race was evil, that one race and its supporters, were not worthy of the same rights as an elite group.  

WE SAW HOW THAT PLAYED OUT & TODAY WE ARE RUSHING TOWARDS THE SAME RESULT BUT WITH EVEN GREATER CONSEQUENCES.

FREEDOM is not just about voting, or about choosing what religion to believe in. It is about allowing anyone to have full access to all things, that any majority has. Whether it is to attend schools, to open a business, or to voice their objection to Government. It is about DENYING NO CITIZEN FREE WILL.   Something the Religious Right is opposed to, despite it being a GIFT FROM GOD HIMSELF.

I am not a fan of South Park, but I’ll defend the right of the producers to make it, to even air it. I simply won’t watch it, because I don’t believe it is a good show. I believe it is racist, but they have the right to air it. IF you don’t like porn, if it offends you, simply click away from it. IF your children come across it, why aren’t you there to click away from it, for them?

Just as those who want to proclaim the Holocaust never existed, have a right to that opinion, just as I have the right to stand in their face to disprove their allegation. THAT IS FREEDOM.

Allowing the passage of the XXX.TLD is denying me that right of choice. IF I don’t want PORN, then I simply CLICK AWAY FROM IT.  Just as I do now, when I come to some RIGHT WING SUPREMACIST SITE.  Just as I won’t watch the Evangelists on Television, who FLEECE people HOURLY, I won’t deny them the right to be heard, I MERELY CLICK AWAY.

To hide any group, behind some special door, is SEGREGATION.  It denies them the ability for free and open discussion, it denies them access, and leaves them open to even worse things.  JUST ASK THE MILLIONS OF DEAD FROM HITLER’S CONCENTRATION CAMPS.

CSIS and Politicians

Quite the uproar over the interview by the CSIS head, who claims some of our politicians are under the influence of foreign powers.  LOL

Like that is a surprise?  Just look at Stephen Harper who is controlled by big business, and by the Religious Right of the United States.  Let’s not forget Brian Mulroney who took some bribes, and yeah, Paul Martin too.

Simple reality is, our so called elected leaders, across the board, are more about protecting their vested interests, whether it be some giant corporation, or some union. Today’s politician is about pandering to Special Interest Groups, not about DOING WHAT IS RIGHT FOR THE PEOPLE.

But then too, we should shoulder some of the blame. After all, STAYING HOME ELECTION DAY, isn’t getting our message across.   NOW IS IT?

VISA and MC Accepted

It is from one of those ‘buy your viagra’ spam emails, and it makes me wonder.  How can they have a merchant account to sell a prescription drug online?   Seriously, it makes no sense that these giants would allow anyone to use their processing, for something as illegal as selling prescription drugs.

Then again, when it is only ABOUT THE MONEY, it does make perfect sense. They allow it, because its a billion dollar industry, SCAMMING PEOPLE, and who better to process that, than one of the biggest FINANCIAL SCAMMERS AROUND?
