The Conservatives are KILLING ME!

I am so angry I could spit!

Peter Mansbridge said, “This is good stuff,” during the At Issue segment on The National last night. 

He was referring to the game of chicken the Conservatives are playing with the opposition parties in the House of Commons over their latest attempts to bulldoze and bully the caucus.

I made the mistake of reading some of the responses to the story on CBC.ca regarding the proposal to cut political funding and the refusal to act in any meaningful way to mitigate the effects of the recession that WE ARE CURRENTLY IN!!!!

People just don’t get the potentially ugly ramifications of taking away this funding. Hello, Fascism anyone? And the 30 million in “savings” is a drop in the bucket! A DROP!

Conservatives are even predicting “razor-thin surpluses” for the next five years with a truckload of pie-in-the-sky caveats. REALLY? At what cost? The arts in Canada have been under siege in the last two years and don’t think that this will not continue. The proposal to sell “assets” in a recession for a song- great idea!!! 

If you are not part of a group that has been pandered to by the Conservative Party, you’ll be sh!t out of luck. 

They are forcing my hand. I may have to do something I have never done before- contribute my hard-earned money (and I don’t make a lot), during a financial crisis, to the political party that I think has any chance of making a difference. 

I am going to use the one proposal brought to the table that will benefit ALL Canadians (over the age of 18), the TFSA, and put that money where my big mouth is!!!
