SORT BY Relevancy
Lies. The products for sale in politics. Every level, every time. But nothing beats the Federal arena. There was a time when this current government sang the tune of keeping money in taxpayers' wallets. They have delivered mostly to those who were already doing alright. The income gap has never been wider in Canada. Basically, spend money to save money. We know who that works for.
More lies. To buy your vote. With your money. The "Universal Child Care Benefit" was hailed by the current head shamwow prop as a great social advancement for everyone with children. A deceptive government program that gave with one hand and took back with the other. A government program announced with said shamwow prop in a party logo golf shirt. Gone are the tax credits which reduced taxable income. In comes income to be taxed. Many studies show it to be a losing proposition for the majority of families.
Election marathon. Before the C-23 "Fair" Elections Act, party spending was limited to a maximum regardless of the length of the writ period. That is gone. Now we have a formula to calculate maximums beyond the 37 day standard. This benefits the party in power without a doubt. The more you can out-fundraise your opponents, the longer the writ, the more you can spend for better or worse. Remember the "In and Out" scandal that the CPC plead guilty to in the 2006 election? That's all legal now. More accurately, it's not within the rules anymore.
Footing the bill. The "Fair" Elections Act allows for parties to be reimbursed 50% of eligible expenses, candidates for 60% of eligible expenses. Elections Canada will now have to double their operating costs for the writ period. Who will end up paying? Taxpayers. The blame for all lays squarely in front of the Emperor, as usual from a personality cult party.
The fourth edition of Tope Con Coolio is mercifully over, and if we aren't sued by every activist group known to man by next weeks podcast, then thankfully we've flown under the radar. For now, anyways. We thank our special guest third mic John Clemens and surprise guest Matt Ryan, both of the Matt Ryan Internet Programme (http://www.blogtalkradio.com/programme) for their insight, wit, and for keeping it in their pants.
In addition to the announced topics, we also discussed:
*How Abdullah the Butcher uses Shamwow.
*Liam Neeson vs. Patrick Swayze - Who's more badass?
*Randy The Ram Robinson dream matches (FINALLY)
*Why midgets make movies better, concept be damned!
*The debut of our first reoccurring segment, "Where in the World is Tekno Team 2000?"
All this and oh so much more! If you would like to listen to the latest fresher than Poppin Fresh episode of Tope Con Coolio, our fourth episode is already available to stream and/or download at http://www.blogtalkradio.com/topconcoolio. We also have a major announcement that we will announce after the brea......er, i mean NOW.
Starting next week, Tope Con Coolio expands to 90 minutes! 30 extra glorious minutes of the dorky craziness you have undoubtedly come to expect from TCC. Our start time of 7pm will remain the same.
So join us next Tuesday at 7pm for a super mega hyperawesome episode of Tope Con Coolio (now with 30 more minutes!), complete with new topics, a new third mic, and hopefully, a new way to distract you from everyday life.
