Liberal Tax Announcement No Reason for Joy

Usually I am pretty happy whenever a government announces a tax cut.

I am even happy when a tax cut is simply the result of crass, political calculation. I am even happy when the tax cuts are not deep enough or go far enough. I am even happy when tax cuts won’t happen for awhile.

So why am I unhappy with the tax cuts the Liberals announced yesterday?

Maybe it’s because I know the Liberals too well. They know how to promise tax cuts they just don’t know how to deliver them.

Remember the GST they promised to scrap? Remember the corporate tax cuts they were supposed to provide last year?

And I have a funny feeling that somehow the Liberals will figure out a way to forget about these tax cuts (small as they are) even if they do win the next election.

Wouldn’t it be nice to have a government that was sincere about cutting taxes because it was the right thing to do?

Now that would make me happy.

Canada's New National Anthem Proposal

Sung to the tune of "Where Have All The Flowers Gone"

All together now:

Where has all our money gone
Long-time passing.
Where has all our money gone
Long-time ago.
Where has all our-money gone
Gone to Liberal ad-firms everyone.

When will they ever learn,
When will they NEVER learn.

2nd Verse

Where has our Canadian pride gone,
Long-time passing.
Where has all our pride gone,
Long-time ago.
Where has all our spirit gone,
Gone to "entitlements" everyone

When will the ever learn
When will they NEVER learn

3rd Verse

Where have all the Liberals gone,
Long-time passing
Where have allthe Liberals gone,
Long-time ago.
Where have all the Liberals gone.
Gone to third party status everyone.

Too bad they never learned.
Too bad they never learned.

It's time to pull the plug on this government. Maybe, just maybe there's a chance to salvage our country and restore the kind of leadership Canada deserves.

In regards to the liberals bribing canadians with billions in tax breaks..

Six months ago Finance Minister Goodale said we would have a 500 million surplus,
now all of a sudden he has 13 billion !!!

The numbers don't add up...
I'll say it again....we need someone other than a liberal to have a good hard look at the books !!!!!!!!A.S.A.P
This lot of Liberal theives in Ottawa
has got to go....

I'm still waiting for my "massive" $100-billion pre-election 2000 tax cuts. They have yet to show up on my paycheck.
