They Want Higher Taxes So Government Can Waste More Money


on Saturday, 26 May 2018 13:04

00:-54 - 06:02 Michael -New taxes on homes, carbon taxes, higher CPP premiums, car insurance, ultility rates and property taxes to name just a few but not a word about the waste and inefficient spending.  Lots of examples like the $910 million blown on the Phoenix pay system and $212,000 on the 2017 Budget cover.

The Appeal of Virtue Signaling Over Action


on Thursday, 24 May 2018 07:20

Paying lip service, waving signs talking big achieves next to nothing. We love our virtue signaling though, since anyone can do it with very little energy, focus, commons sense or practicality required. It also explains why we're talking about the same issues for decades because we increasingly value talk over action. Unless our public leaders are putting forth specific plans founded on research & historical facts, that welcomes critical evaluation, it's just blowing smoke.
