Despite constant anti-G20 MSM rhetoric...

...another fuzzy-bunny G&M poll goes horribly wrong...

-- "Do you support the G20 plan for a new age of austerity that will see governments cut hundreds of billions of dollars in public spending?" --
g20 bullshitHmmm, looks like one third of Canadians still believe in the "Money Fairy"... but for anyone with half a brain... the bottom line is the bottom line.

Perfect! Finally, the momentum may be developing for a serious conservative budget. We now have our new city rail lines, improved roads, stimulus parks and upgrades to whatever, so Canadians in the majority have now moved to a mood for cuts to the big gov't!! Quietly, the gov has been doing a few smart cuts, but they now are well aware of the soft spots. L

Harper said if the G20 can get it right over the next five years, as many as 54 million new jobs could be created around the world and 90 million people could be lifted out of poverty.

by running absolutely amok... these so-called "protesters" did stephen harper a big favour.

what people saw were, on the one side... the conservatives... and on the other side... the senseless violence & destructiveness of the socialists.

if you've got a home and children... the last thing you wanna see is a total breakdown of social controls.

i think we owe the black-clad dumbsticks a vote of thanks.

Harper has zero credibility preaching about "reducing deficits". All he has done since he came to power is spend, spend, spend and for him to lecture others when he erased a multi billion $ surplus in no time with record spending (BEFORE THE RECESSION) is ridiculous. Similarly, taking credit for our banks when he was advocating major deregulation in opposition is also hilarious. But I guess you guys buy it....lol

"another anonymous troll says... Harper has zero credibility"

unlike the glowing, godlike socialist-in-chief president mcdreamy, huh?

and who exactly was it, constantly trying to force the hand of the most successful minority government in canadian history?

oh, yeah... that'd be the first anglo-american prime minister in waiting... and his henchman... the leader of the taliban sucking dippers.

oh... the stimulus money thing... that was so far in the past... i guess you can't remember all that.

dumb & dumber.

maryT said...

Anon, who forced the stimulus on the govt. And have you forgotten how the liberals got their surplus. Think what it would have been if not for HRDC, Adscam, gun control, brown paper bags.
Liberals and the media might wish we didn't remember but we do.
I just hope and pray that a lot more NGOs are defunded, after what happened over the weekend.
But, the media got their wish for violence and did their part to encourage it and support it.
If you doubt that, why has cbc had a lot of those detained on their program this a.m.
Support the anarchists is the message I get.

neo and MaryT - the orgy of spending occured BEFORE the recession and was driven not by opposition demands, but my a gov't using taxpayer funds to buy votes and avoid major decisions. Your revisionist history is laughable.

And who says I am a big Obama fan? Talk abolut pathetically grasping at straws. My point is, and there is no evidence either of you presented (or could present) to refute it, that Harper has only ever spent - and massively - and has never experienced "deficit reduction" nor taken any of the difficult decisions required to make it happen.

Now go and give your little Stevie poster kiss and protect his ears from the harsh voices of reality. LOL

Nice revisionism there buddy. Need I remind you that the budget was largely in balance until the Coalition Prorogue of 2008, and the resulting "compromise" budget in early 2009? The fact of the matter is that had Harper not given into some demands, then we would have been under a Liberal-NDP-Bloc coalition right now and the More spending that would have brought (Estimates say 10-15 Billion more in spending).

You believe everything you see on TV? 2 cop cars hardly qualifies as scorched earth. The dicks that caused the problem ain't fuzzy bunnies either, they're cowards that hide behind masks...kinda like you.

"Oxygentax":

"Budget was largely balanced" - well, yes, after inheriting a better than $13 billion surplus from previous gov't, they hadn't quite aquandered all of it yet. Check the record - your little "conservative" PM was increasing govt program spending at three times the rate of inflation - highest spending gov't in history until this latest version.
Man, you guys just aren't too clever, eh? I guess that's why you need the talking points. Head on over to the Dep of Finance website and look for yourself.
It appears that fo r all of you, "conservative" means "we hate Liberals" and very little else.

"another anonymous troll cries... the orgy of spending occured BEFORE the recession"

nonny... you mean like when st pierre trudeau took the canadian deficit from 29 billion to over 300 billion dollars?

or how your municipal taxes have plummeted since david miller started pulling the levers in toronto?

because, of course... the socialists... they're all about saving taxpayer monies.

it is to laugh.

Gosh, Neo, sorry to confuse your perfect little cheering ociety with pesky little things called "facts".

Gee, nevernoticed our "deficit" hit "300 billion fdollars" as you claim. You might want to check a9th grade text to learn that there is a difference between "deficit" and "debt". Trudeau DID grow the deficit AND The debt. That was 30 years ago. Mulroney then more than doubled the debt and had the largest deficit until - wait for it - Harper.

Carry on. lol

"Trudeau DID grow the deficit AND The debt. That was 30 years ago."

So why is Justin Trudeau viewed as the Second Coming in some circles of the Fiberal party?

Anonymous said...

For the same reason some think Stephen Harper is a good Prime Minister. Many people are very stupid.

"another anonymous troll whinges... That was 30 years ago"

hey nonny... got your calculator handy?

what's 30 years compound interest on 300 billion dollars?

the liberals are famous for this kind of spending... that's why there's no money left over these days for health care or cpp.

i guess you didn't notice that the harper government is the envy of all the economically floundering g8 countries.

but hey... what about the war in afghanistan? wait a sec... that was the liberals too back in 2001.

sorry, pinky... the long and the short of it is... friends don't let friends vote liberal.

Neo:

Fools like you talk the talk - and that's it. I am happy making large quantities of money in the real world of PE but paying far too much in tax to support pinheads like Harper - who has never worked outside of politics in his life - spending all of my hard-earned cash on self-promotion and his own re-election.

Canada is the envy of other countries DESPITE the poor management of the past 5 years. AGain, it;s like the billionaire's heir being lauded for still being a millionnaire after he spends 99% of his inheritance.

You notice when Britain talks about "pulling a Canada" they are specifically talking about what Martin did as finance minister to balance our books and erase the massive deficit they inherited - usually naming him, and NOT talking about Harper et al who try to take credit. All they did was come in and spend.

I guess that's enough for idiot cheerleaders but not for people like me who actually require real results.

What a watse of time - what are you, like 12? lol

jwkozak91 - re, Chretien - AGREED. Re. West - mostly AGREE.

See - it;s not that difficult to stray from party lines. I do it all the time. Blogging Tories tend not to. Try looking at issues on their merit not on the party talking points. It is liberating.

jwkozak91 - re Chretien: AGREED. Couldn't stand him, but he had a great Finance Minister. Re. Libs and West: mostly AGREE. See? It isn't that hard to stray from partisan talking points. I do it all the time - Blogging Tories - not so much. Try looking at each issue on its merits. It's liberating.

Mulroney inherited a deficit which was about 8.3% of GDP at the time. Considering that Canada's GDP was about 1.25 trillion last year that equals a current deficit of over $100 billion. So Harper and Flaherty certainly are not the worst.

Also, in 1984 the federal government was spending $1.18 for every $1 of revenue. By 1993, that had dropped to $.97 for every dollar of revenue.

Perhaps Mulroney should have acted quicker on reducing the deficit, but he probably would have lost the 1988 election if he had, and politicians prefer getting re-elected.

Given it's the 'Grope & Flail', the numbers are impressive.

1. deficit and debt are 2 separate issues. Economics 101. you should know at least that much.

2. trudeau certainly grew the debt, but you're off by about 100 billion. check it and see.

3. try and deal with issues you actually have a clue about.

"Even Jean Chretien himself famously admitted, and I quote, 'We left the cupboard bare,'" said Mulroney, who pointed out that Chretien served as a finance minister under Trudeau and knew of what he spoke.

"That was his only understatement," added Mulroney, to much laughter.

"The day I was sworn in as Prime Minister the government was spending $1.23 on programs for every dollar it took in in taxes," he told the attentive crowd. Under Trudeau, the debt grew by 1,100% and interest rates peaked at 22.75%.

By the time Mulroney left office, program spending was reduced to 97 cents for every dollar of revenues.

In other words, the only reason there was a large deficit, was because of the huge interest payments (33 cents on every tax dollar) Canada had to pay to service the enormous debt Trudeau built up.
