Your leaving out the fact your government borrowed more than it could afford to pay back, because like other governments they can't tell their people
NO for their own good. The people get used to the handouts and come to expect them.
The government sold out our profit making nationalized commodity industries long ago. If these were still in place, we would be in much better shape.
What I am talking about specifically is electrical utilities, many road systems, the bank of canada, petrocan, control of water resources, control of
lumber resources, etc. The privatization of Canadian assets into the hands of corporate intersts, like Paul deMarais has killed this colony (let's be
clear, it's not a country).
Reality is that it is a solvable problem, but not as long as politicians have to buy votes with handouts and childish minds in the population
can't comprehend the fact that the government is broke. The give me, give me crowd are in fact childish in their wants and demands and at some point,
somebody must say NO.
It's solvable alright, dissolve the centrals, charge the politicians and their handlers with treason. It's either that or forgive all debts
worldwide without making a single World Government and currency. The system needs to be reset and if that costs the oligarchs and monarchs their
"fortunes," tough, they need to get over themselves.
What's happening to Greece is self inflicted by the people as much as the politicians. They attempted to have a higher standard of living than
they can afford to support. Same as any young couple spending beyond their income; there comes a point when you have to pay the piper. It's as naive
and dishonest as those who think they should be able to stay in their houses here in the US even though they can't pay the money back they borrowed.
It's the same old the world owes me mentality.
Greece looks like an engineered failure by the IMF as an experiment in how far they can push people into austerity and totalitarian rule. You do try
to divert and play turn-around by using Greece and handouts, but let's look at queen elizabet and the inbred monarchy, they are probably the most
expensive welfare family on the planet, talk about hand-outs and useless eaters, huh? And what about cristine laugare (sp?) the IMF bitch from hell
and her constant moaning about the Greeks not paying their taxes while of course, she doesn't, hypocrisy at its finest? Or maybe just more
"entitlement theater" of the rich and moronic?
Canada has been headed down a good path and it would be sad to see a bunch of give me, give me childish adults derail that by forcing your
leaders to pander for their support.
We need to make it clear to our alleged "leaders" that by pandering to the international banks, IMF, BIS, etc. they are destroying our countries.
Like I said, the federal income tax covers servicing the debt interest, how bloody stupid is that?
As to the kiddies in the hoods and such, they are children no matter what their physical age. Some will mature, others will be future prison
inmates and general thorns in the sides of everyone.
So, what's your point, fools will be fools and some fools will wake up and make something of themselves, so what?
