Sun entertainment is pointing out a study that shows....That many Canadians simply do not have an emergency fund. They are not setting money aside for a rainy day.
Of course, that is where I start laughing my ass off.
Set money aside.....With what?
Prices go up, wages do not. Lose your job? The Cons will be forcing you to take a lower paying one anyway.
We spend all of the money we make on bills and basics.
Really, it is that simple.
What they are trying to do is show how CARELESS people are.
Tsk tsk many of their readers will be saying. Many of them are probably baby boomers and seniors who got to live in better times created and engineered by their parents who wanted them to have a better life. Times where saving was possible.

Into the coffers of corporate Canada. As anyone with a grasp of reality knows.
And let's face facts, the Liberals have mostly favoured this approach too.
See, corporations are not actually reinvesting all those juicy tax breaks into this country. They are not paying it out to their shareholders even. Nope.
They are stashing it away in mattresses all over the world.
Voodoo economics, Reaganomics, trickle down. It's all complete bullshit.

Anyone else following the LIBOR scandal that started in the UK and is spreading like a wildfire across the global banking industry?
If not, this could be a good popcorn and beer opportunity. If you can still afford those things.
But...but many will say, that's in London.

Looks like it may shape up here on the Wet Coast, but I will not hold my breath.
But just wait until next winter, when Canadians living in the official town of Denial Canada will poke their heads out their doors and proclaim that they see snow! So this climate change stuff is all a conspiracy to take away their SUV's.
And guns, it always involves their guns.

The latest Conservative scandal reminded me of another scam that has been around for a very long time. I wonder if there were badly spelled emails going around about it? Usually when it comes to the Cons, fraud and scandals are not a one off.
HELLO, MY NAME IS EBENEEZER DELTRO AND I AM OF THE CANDIAN NATIONALITY.

How many years were many of us warning that Harper and Company were not here for the well being of Canadians?
Some insisted that Harper is a moderate, he wouldn't dismantle Canada if he got a mahjoritay. Nah, many of them said. He wouldn't dare! We shall vote him out then!
Y'all are over the edge! they said.
Now we see the great omnibus bill that will dismantle this great country and turn it into a third world sewer.
And as an aside, I really think that he doesn't care about another election. If they move fast enough, they will get every corporate loving, anti Canadian, pro corporatocracy, fascist item on their list checked off.
I, and many others have also been saying for years that the reason the cons have gotten so far is the fact that they consolidated all the different factions into one giant voting block, and that the NDP and the Libs, as far off as they are on many things are just vote splitting.

Today is the day.
The recall election of one of the anti union, anti woman, pro corporate Koch brothers flunky governors.
Scott Walker supporters are phoning those who signed the recall petition to tell them that they really don't need to get out and vote, it's already been counted.
They cannot win honestly. They need to cheat lie and steal the rights of all away in order to "win".

Then, bring in thousands of temporary workers from foreign countries. Pay them lower wages, and apply lower employment standards. Chain them to employers that may or not be abusive in many ways, tie the continued stay of the temporary foreign workers to how accepting and docile they are to those conditions.
21st century indentured slaves.
I do not blame these people for coming here to take whatever they can get. I blame the government and those who support them for creating these circumstances. Greedy businesses, Corporatist Governments and voters who cannot see past their own noses.

How far would $57 Billion dollars have taken EI here during this corporate/bank created debacle known as a "recession"?
EI isn't tax money. It is money deducted from the paycheques of hard working Canadians and also paid by their employers to help workers in the event of a corporate/bank created debacle.
Like this one.

It is always hard to see how Harpercon policies will be actualized. I am supplying an artists rendering for demonstrative purposes.

Would you work for minimum wage at a shit job that doesn't even pay the rent and food?
I doubt that Diamond Jim has an inkling of what things cost today. He cannot even use a calculator.
Daycare is another consideration. I know, we are all supposed to be so fucking grateful for the $100 slap in the face that the Harpercons delivered to us when they killed an actual national childcare program.
He also thinks we need to all move if the jobs are not nearby.
Pay for two houses!

Standing up for your rights and the rights of all those that will come after, even if you think they are a bunch of socialist pinko commies for doing so.
Odd isn't it? Our forebearers fought so hard for living wages, better working hours and an end to child labour. They created a time in the 20th century which for so many was so lucrative. We had a fairly good standard of living, a thriving middle class, and were moving forward. Poverty was something we talked about wiping out, now the Government wants to sink us further into it. In fact many of the public support that very thing.
