Dippers can always bring about change - take a look right here --> http://www.cbc.ca/news/canada/british-columbia/ndp-mla-jenny-kwan-repaying-35k-for-europe-disney-trips-1.2581899

Like liberals everywhere, they too have mastered the fine arts of deception and guile, aka Dipping - an art taken to new levels since the arrival of Boob Rae and his meds, followed by everyone's favorite jeweller, Svend and his most unhappy band of louts that still follow he and his ilk to this day.

It's only when they've been caught red-handed however, that the tears flow, crocodile tears, lots of 'em - usually followed by a gofundmoi cry for financial assistance of any sort.

So, not only is Angry Tom and his Merry Band of Dippers offering a chicken in every pot, much like his brand new mate, Shiny Pony - but they also offer to change the way things are done to a brand new way of having things done.

Long before I cam back i watched you do this ridiculous form of posting .

It's not healthy, seriously try not doing anything that resembles this for two weeks and watch a noticeable change in your mind set.


Those who participate in this form of online banter constantly,do it because they want to humiliate and embarrass others. Thats the goal right? They also have a deep rooted need to appear intimidating. It's like an olympian event for you.


ROTFL

If this isn't the pot calling the kettle black, then I don't know what is!

Keep digging that enormous hole, Count. Ask for a bigger shovel if you need!

You want to bring that up during the first trial of Tory Senators? They used public money...
We once had a BC MLA who was a convicted bank robber. And a couple communists too! And a premier so flakey he made VanDerZalm look normal by comparison. Oooooohhhh! Scarey! And we're still here, the world didn't end!

I don't believe in No Down Payment style governments, and I think Maggie said it best, the issue with socialism is you end up running out of other peoples money rather quickly.

I did notice however, that all the parties claim to be able to 'fix' the economy and get it back on track but not one of them has put any meat into that statement. There is no step by step agenda, policy or view that would do anything other than stimulus for the economy and drive us even deeper into debt.

And sometimes, stimulus is just what you need, unless you want to deepen and prolong the downturn. The time for austerity is during the boom times. That's the part of Keynes that nobody gets.

sometimes, under very specific conditions I would agree in stimulus spending, but how is QE working out in the US? I would argue those specific conditions are not in place.

Seems opinion on that varies. Personally I'm not thinking of QE, but the govt funding actual projects and programs. Many people have pointed out that we're at an all time low for borrowing money, and certainly have an infrastructure problem. The time to build infrastructure is when private industry is idle, so you're not competing for labor and materials and driving prices up. Ie build during down times, not during up times.

But the number one stimulus, both in return to govt and in immediate effect is to up the EI payments. So many people apparently now down't qualify even tho they pay into it, and the rates are low. During down times, relax the regs so more people qualify and increase the payouts. That puts money into the economy very quickly, it helps the people who need it most, and the taps can be turned off very quickly if things pick up again.

I would never qualify for EI and even if I did, when I found employment my income would be too high and would then have to pay most of it back. So for me, it's a completely worthless program. I understand that people need and use it, I am not saying I don't think we should have it but I take an exception to seasonal workers that make 'reasonable' money (and by that I mean 'the average household income range' then get to claim it for 6 months.

you won't get an argument from me on the state of our collective infrastructure, it is old and getting older..we will have to face this problem one day.

That's the point - EI is for those who need it, who have very low incomes. Give them money and they put it right back in the economy. When the economy picks up, cut back on EI to make people take the jobs that are opening up.

As for earning too much - you can claw back any EI payments from people who earned over a certain amount in that year, not a problem at all.

What I'm hearing is that fewer and fewer people who pay into EI actually qualify to get EI. Probably a lot of them have very brief periods of employment. Also, EI payments have been reduced. Ramp this up to stimulate the economy, the effect will be immediate. Then, as I say, ramp it down when the economy picks up, specifically if unemployment drops below a certain target level.
