We Work For & Serve The Government – Not The Other Way Around.
If you think You are the Only One Stressed To-The-Max Over the Costs of Everything, Including the Smothering Rules & Regulations Imposed upon You & Yours by the Government, who should Otherwise be Working for you . . . YOU’RE NOT ALONE!
And It’s Not Just The Carbon Tax . . . Higher Guaranteed Minimum Wages. Higher Costs for Automobile Registrations. Free Healthcare Clinical Testing at Ontario Hospitals, which all of a Sudden are No Longer Free . . . And On & On & On.
For the Global Warming/Climate Change Chicken Little’s of the World, who think that a Carbon Tax will Somehow Save the Planet from an Environmental Catastrophe, which is Concocted in their Own Demented Minds . . . I’ve Got News For Them.
One Burp From A Volcano – One Major Forest Fire . . . And what Leaches Naturally out of the Ocean Floor and into the Environment every Single Day, Puts More Carbon Into The Atmosphere, than Everything a Normal Person can Contribute in a Hundred Lifetimes.
YET . . . Here we have Governments Worldwide, Canada amongst them, TOUTING the Benefits of Taxing Citizens Into Economic Oblivion, in the Pretense of Saving the Planet.
A Carbon Tax has Made a Whole Lot of Wealthy & Well-Connected People, including Politicians, Academics & LEFTIST Advocates, even that much Wealthier & Better Connected – So How Does That Help You, Me & The Planet?
You Start Combining The Cost Of Mandated Rising Minimum Wages, the Carbon Tax & Everything else which is Going-Up as PREDATORY PRICING . . . and what you have is a Perfect Storm . . . The Genesis For A National Economic Collapse.
Anne & I Took Two Friends Out For A Cheap Steamed Hot-Dog Supper Last Night. We had Hotdogs in the Bun, French Fries & Soft Drinks . . . The Bill Was Just Under $40 All-In.
It Doesn’t Sound Like Much for Four People . . . Except, a Meal like that a Year-Ago would have Cost us – Close To Half As Much.
Anne Went Grocery Shopping Yesterday, and on her Way-Out of the Grocery Store, there was a Display of Fresh Watermelons in a Bin, not Particularly Big Melons at $10 Each. At $10 for a Small Watermelon . . . They Can Keep It. And Anne wasn’t the only Shopper who Thought so.
People Aren’t Entirely Stupid. And even Stupid People can Only Spend what they Have, until there Isn’t Anymore, and when that Happens, which is coming Faster than People Realize . . . the Producers, Wholesalers, Transporters & Retailers will be Whistling Dixie Waiting & Begging for Customers.
And If People Aren’t Buying . . . All The People Employed In The Food & Product Chain will soon see what the Consequences are of Corporate Greed, Too High Wages & Massive Government Incompetence, Costs, Corruption & Taxes.
And No One Ever Put It Into A Better Perspective Than Margaret Thatcher . . .
“The Trouble With Socialism Is That Eventually You Run Out Of Other People’s Money”.
So What Happens To The Government . . . And all the Government Largesse, like Free Healthcare in Canada, which Really Isn’t all that Free . . . Including Pensions, Social Security, Unfunded Liabilities, Education, Police, Fire, Infrastructure (Roads & Bridges) and all Other Government Services – WHEN THERE ISN’T ENOUGH TAX REVENUE TO COVER THE COSTS?
If You Think For A Nano-Second, that Venezuela Cannot Happen to us, Here in North America . . . THINK AGAIN! Because, as a Canadian, I’m Living It Every Day.
Almost Everyone Is Squeezing The Limits Because They Can . . . But what Happens when there’s No One Left to Squeeze? And what Happens when the Squeezer Becomes the Squeezed? . . . Ask The Venezuelans?
Anne & I Shop A Lot At Amazon . . . Because We Refuse To Get Ripped-Off.
Anne & I Shop at Amazon & Several Other ONLINE Retailers, because we Don’t want to Pay Twice as Much for Items than we have to. And for all the LEFTISTS like Ocasio-Cortez & Bernie Sanders, who Live like Royalty on their BLOATED Taxpaid Salaries . . . if Our Saving Money at the Expense of their Socialist Dream Paid through Taxes Offends them . . . They Can Kiss My Capitalist Behind.
Our Governments have Morphed Into their own Culture & Society, Divorced from the People who Pay their Way, where the Government has Actually Become Entitled to our Money, where they Pay themselves what they Want, Hire as many People as they Deem Necessary, whether they Really Need the People or Not, Set their own Work Standards, Hours to be Worked, Overtime, Vacations, Paid Time-Off, Child-Leave, Expenses, Generous Pensions . . . Etc.
At One Point . . . Between The Costs Of Big Business, Big Government & Over Regulations, It’s All Going To Come Crashing Down On Our Heads . . . And It Will Be The Disaster Of Our Own making.
