As the bumper sticker south of the border goes: America - Funding both sides of the war on terror.
Have not had or driven a car in over three years. All I remember was I could travel from the country side into the city find a free parking spot...go to work...all for about 25 bucks a week...from what I understand people have to choose between filling up and eating properly. We have wealth...resources - clean water...OIL....Tired of governments going on about jobs and oil companies saying they are creating "Jobs" People don't want more jobs...What's the point of a job if it cost you three days pay to fill up the car...
How about having those oil companies and their share holders take a little less than the lion's share and stop playing Canadians for suckers when dealing with oil wealth that they are also informal share holders in.
I just can't get over the oil expert stating that selling oil out of Alberta to China will NOT lower domestic prices....WTF. Why would we care about new pipe lines when there is nothing in it for us.................Just heard someone say they will create 200 more new jobs in preparation of a new pipe line-------------------------------big frinking deal- so a few young immigrants will go west to work- sell dope to the hicks and maybe pimp a few woman....And murder their competition...
The biggest crook I ever knew of, made car parts...and his great mantra when wanting favor from governments was shooting off his mouth about JOBS......The create job mantra is about making a few more slaves and asking they to thank you for the favor.
We have a system of hoarding wealth in Canada- I am not talking about socialist re-distribution of wealth and all that garbage....Just be loyal to workers and pay them well....share a little....Forget about China and that 20 million dollar bonus- show some loyalty on home turf.
