Conservative/Liberal same old story: EI and bust!

Longer wait for election and for EI

If anything became clear last week when Stephen Harper and Michael Ignatieff agreed they didn't want a summer election, it was that neither one of them has ever had to apply for employment insurance.


AIN'T THAT THE TRUTH (tales of elitism)

Poster on EI

is of no importance to either major party except as a political issue. It's not as if they are likely to require income support - the people they are dragging their feet on helping get to pay their salaries, even while they struggle to survive the delays and denials of the system. Mr. Ignatieff's interest in correcting the iniquities of the system now looks as if either he is totally insincere or just knows far less than he should about the workings of the system. The only party who have stuck to their guns and insisted that the EI system needs an immediate overhaul is the NDP. It is to be hoped that the voters currently affected by the political games at the top of the pyramid remember that, when we eventually do get a chance to cast ballots.

Who's calling the shots for the Liberals? Not Iggy

Who's calling the shots for the Liberals? We sure know it's not Iggy!

No surprise there for the corporate lovin and bank-rolled party
Raitt describes how, at a closed-door meeting of politicians and corporate CEOs last January, bank presidents threatened to cut off funding to the deeply indebted Liberal party if Ignatieff voted against the Conservative budget: "They did it at the Canadian Council of (Chief) Executives, there was three presidents of major banks who stood up in the room -- and this is not from cabinet so I can talk about it -- stood up and said, 'Ignatieff, don't you even think about bringing us to an election. We don't need this. We have no interest in this. And we will never fund your party again.'"
No wonder there is such a close symbiotic relationship between Iggy & Harper

Which of the LAST "campy" action heroes is Ignatieff?

In Ignatieff has blown chance to dethrone Harper POSTILL notes
that Michael Ignatieff appears to lack the killer instinct that it takes to win elections. Even if you forgive him for his campy "action-hero" come-back line about what happens if you "mess" with him, Ignatieff has let a pivotal opportunity pass.
We are supposedly waiting for the government’s second report card next week, but no one is in doubt about the fact a summer election is not happening.

Ignatieff, likes to talk "tough" theoretically about holding the government accountable and then does nothing: crying wolf again.

So which action hero would Ignatieff be? Take this quiz on Iggy's behave and help him "shape" his action character.

My pick: The Terminator (and fellow American)

The Terminator can be good or evil. It just depends on who's manipulating his circuits. When he's evil, he's a killing machine. When he's good, he's---well, a killing machine. He often comes back in time to protect certain human beings from other Terminators. He has no sense of stealth or subtlety and will do whatever it takes to accomplish his mission. He has a curious penchant for sunglasses and seems to enjoy mimicking human slang.
Have fun and be thoughtful - Iggy would like that!

Welcome back to the "limelight" Roy Romanow

There's more to life than GDP. Good to see Romanow putting his progressive thinking and talking to work on Canadians behave. Putting the majority of hardworking Canadians well-being as No. #1 instead of the bottom line of "a few" shows what real measurements should be about: the "good life."

Former Saskatchewan premier Roy Romanow is founding chair of the Institute of Wellbeing. The institute's first report is available online at www.ciw.ca.

Ignatieff is a wolf in sheep's clothing as he cry's wolf

SHORTER:
"When Liberals "tack right" ideologically, or have a leader whose image is right-of-centre, like John Turner and Paul Martin, they lose elections."
Read on:
Ignatieff's image is "too business liberal."
Yet when Ignatieff occasionally talks the progressive talk, he has yet to walk it. We call that faking left, and crying wolf. He keeps threatening to bring down the government and then backs away, to rising ridicule.

No kidding with the liberals recent vote for Harper's crime Bill C-15, Liberals might be "talking tough" but are keeping the regressive Harper agenda agenda on track.

71 votes and counting is a lot of "crying wolf"

Shorter: NDP Trinity-Spadina MP Olivia Chow has called for a federal probe into spending practices at the Toronto Port Authority.

Chow held a news conference Monday late-morning, with documents in-hand, that outlined the close to $80,000 in travel expenses by former CEO Lisa Raitt, who is now the federal Minister of Natural Resources.

Accountable not with citizens' tax dollars!
