I always enjoy listening to Mr. Wonderful.Fat Tony
We should vote for the leader that ran 7 record deficits and added $200 Billion to the national debt? He's the guy that knows what he's doing? BTW, why is the Harper Government taxing me and redistributing my tax dollars to my neighbour's reno or kiwanis membership? Conservative social engineering is asinine.
We take all the money you coward ANONS have,just for fun.
Anon -- As I recall, the only reason Canada had record deficits for a few years was because a Lib/NDP/Block coalition demanded it in late 2008 as they were trying to take down a recently duly elected government. You talk about social engineering? You obviously don't live in Ontario now or under the Rae NDP government in the early 1990s. This Conservative government is a centrist party. End of story.
actually you should vote for the leader that increased the GDP from $1.164 trillion USD to $1.8 trillion USD,whilst reducing the GST by 30%, increasing child tax credits for families ind introducing universal tax reform measures...all while maintaining the debt-to-GDP ratio at 32% deficit financing is a common method of combating economic downturns kinda like when Dad felt his job was secure and a salary increase was on the way..he went out and
Sandy, I don't live in Ontario. My vote will not be driven by Wynne derangement syndrome. Harper is a failed economic leader.
Of course the NDP government of Alberta has no idea what they're doing, none of them has any business experience, a bunch of academics and civil servants imbued with a sense of self importance and hugely over confident in their abilities.To those who bitch about Harper and the national debt,etc., yeah he isn't perfect, but the NDP are a lot worse,as you'll see if Canadians are dumb enough to vote these clowns into the federal government.,If you hate Harper THAT much, after you see a good psychiatrist and get a prescription for the proper anti-psychotic, but still hate Harper, vote for the dead PM's son, Trudeau junior,who couldn't f*** up the Country as badly as the Dippers would.
Part of me thinks Notely and crew are deliberately trying to destroy everything that was good about Alberta.
I am in total agreement with your viewpoint. Good call, and others will feel the same.
Alberta will get the democracy it deserves - good and hard. The NDP will inflict damage on an industrial scale (pun intended). Unfortunately Albertans will be shivering in the cold and dark in dirty cities, begging for handouts. There will be a mass exodus from the province and the talent and those that have mobility will leave. This is not hyperbolic but the new reality. The chickens will be coming home to roost in November when Ms. Notley deigns to present a budget. More taxes, more regulations, more handouts and so on. But hey we will all be flipping burgers and handing out brown paper bags in the drivethru lane for $15 an hour.
oldwhiteguy says...........understanding that a large part of the debt incurred under the conservatives was the result of the economic blip that the U.S. forced on the world. The conservatives were in a minority situation at the time and the other parties supported their actions. I do not believe the conservatives made the best of their opportunity as a majority. They could have done some serious cutting the first two years of their majority.
If you were so friggin smart you would be PM..SORRY YOUR NOT READY
bertie, I think your trolly has jumped the track. so says oldwhiteguy.
The reason why the NDP were allowed to form government in this province is that 41% of those who voted did so with their heart rather than their head. I suppse an argument can be made for the time being right to try something new when the status quo had gone very stale and corrupt. But, my oh my, the potentially dire consequences of not knowing what you are switching to: a drop in investor confidence and deepening economic uncertainty.
Basically the May vote was actually more of a protest vote against the PCs not that Albertans were enamored with NDP socialist policies. Now we pay, big time. Gonna be one big mess at the end of their four year term.
The NDP Govt. can't put together a basic budget in 8 months, BUT they can save the planet with their Climate Change Panel. Kevin O'Leary is absolutely correct. Notley and crew have no idea what they are doing. FlynPigRanch
The problem is that Progressives don't govern on behalf of the citizens, they rule on behalf of the UN/IPCC. Notley, Trudeau, Wynne and Mulcair are all, IMHO, traitors.
Notley knows exactly what she is doing. Fundamentally transforming Alberta into a socialist paradise.
7 years of deficit and $200 billion added to the national debt. No thanks. ABC.
shouldn't that be anything but thought??? or maybe "I live in my own little world and I like the sky being pink with big fluffy clouds made of other peoples money".... in a minority gov't when the worlds economy collapsed...er wait, trust fund baby's were drama teachers back then.... now where was I. Oh ya, when Harper first got in and the economy was tanked and the USA housing buble burst "stimulus spending" to bail out all the golden parachutes was all the left wignut rage... the Blocheads, No Damn Plan, and those who would Liberally take all your tax dollars for themseleves, hi-jacked the due elect gov't, threatened/blackmailed them into spending 300-500 million more on a new election or settle with them and spend 200 billion dollars in bailing out unions, foreign companies invested in Canada, not to mention paying out every pension and dead beat leaving from the Cretin and Martin years to boot....See, the problem is friends that Liberals don't believe what they preach applies to them. If they did Just Not Ready wouldn't take a paycheck or use an expense account... Daddy's little boy is worth millions, far more then everyone he's running against... junior is rich and he doesn't mind spending other peoples money along the way... anyone's money but his own... On the other side we have a conservative scandal.... a scandal in that a member of Harpers inner circle decided to pay back someone else's expenses out of their own pocket because it was the right thing to do.... scandal...an honest politician... he's making the rest of us look bad...get him!!!
I pity Harper. He is surrounded by employees that don't read their email, that don't tell Harper what is going on and believe that lying to Canadians is acceptable.Harper racked up huge debt, in large part becuase of his gimmicky tax cuts for political gain. Once you decide to screw the next generation it is easy to cut the GST by 2 points. The national debt will have to be covered by our kids taxes. Unforgivable.
um no... the large debit was the stimulus spending to pay out a bunch of Liberal and NDP companies who were threatening "and those emails and memos are on file" they would bring down the due elect gov't if the conservatives didn't bring a spending budget forward and didn't add the stimulus spending into the budget and cost Canada another 300-500 million for another and another and another election until the Liberal and NDP got what they want...
oldwhiteguy says........ and yet the fools in Canada think that the NDP or liberals will be any better.
On the bright side, there's lots of entertainment value from Notley and her comrades ... My favorite story being the tweet from a PC insider, about how our "morbidly obese" Health Minister would lack credibility if she ever lectured Albertans on healthy lifestyle choices. As usual, our achingly predictable mediocre media ran with the "bullying" aspect of those "hurtful" comments. Too bad Milquetoast McIver apologized for a perfectly legitimate and astute observation.Ric should instead have pulled out his calculator, punched in the fat broad's weight in Kilograms, divided by her height in meters squared, and see if he came up with a Body Mass Index of 40 or more (the definition of morbidly obese). A rare, teachable math moment, lost forever.
LIke Ralph Klein was the picture of good health. Or the super fat Dave Hancock. Nobody commented about how fat they were.
This is my home. I hope you respect it. I will not tolerate profanity or anything that is not suitable for family consumption.
