Commentary
This is economic downturn is going to be a bitch—but here is the upside. The people are not as ignorant of information, so ultimately, the lower income people are better money managers than they used to be. Why not??----- their numbers have exploded over the past decade in Canada.
It’s like people in snowstorm, all willing to help one another.
That is the thing about Canadians. We are tough like Russians. Our weather is a natural hardship. We know how to cooperate when things are tough.
That’s why this Obama thing is so cool. No matter, no matter what ‘ya gotta do---everyone believes this guy is going to try to make it right. That’s all anyone wants—honestly.
This poll suggests the federal Conservatives are down (08%) from their previous totals in the most recent federal general elections. The Federal NDP is down (05%), the Bloc Quebecois is down (5.5%), the Federal Greens half decimated plunging (24%).
The federal Liberal Party of Canada is up 18.5%. This tells you something for certain.
I can see another federal election next autumn, maybe near Christmas. (Editor Note-we weren’t thinking this Christmas-who knows?)
I like Bobby Rae, (even more than Norma Rae) but I have this Crystal Ball—(that’s honestly why ROBBINS is always right and true//who else knows the way to San Jose?)
I got my crystal ball as a gift from a 96 old women—great Canadian stock—who left us just recently---Jennie Cook---Michael Ignatieff is all over this thing—right now he’s stronger than Stephen Harper—this is pretty close---.
We pitched a large amount of Canadians---in a positive way. We believe they get the picture—let’s negotiate this---the people know we’re in tough—don’t panic—let’s do the money----yes there is a lot.
Look, I’m not done on this CHMC thing. That’s a flawed policy. First, my principles follow this line: if taxpayer dollars are going out in a deficit policy---it goes back to the taxpayer’s, the people. Don’t broker with this Crown Corporation—stuff---which banks and which insurance companies are broke? I’ve spoken to at least a dozen Canadians who did not have their –outside the country—travel insurance fully honoured. I smell more trouble here than I want to admit. I’ve asked once, and I’m asking again----drop all the nonsense and let’s clean house—bi-partisan—if we don’t—Canada will be a 2nd rate country in 10 years. You heard it here first>!!
The people have had their pocket picked and plucked to a degree that is off the charts. At least thirty years of ===greedy corporate guys—followed by the workers are overpaid.
Profits always outpace wages, and now dickheads like Campbell and others are going to blame the wage earners. How do you rationalize this--- sober?
Right now—in serious ball—the best political actor in the country is Liberal John McCallum—easily. Figure that out.
Canadians in this poll know the score—it isn’t going to be easy but--- tell ME we are back in business in two years.
