Simple Math for Paul Martin

The number ONE complaint of most Canadians is TWO fold:

  1. Crime is out of control and nothing is being done to curb it.
  2. Much of the blame rests squarely in the laps of judges; individuals who clearly seem unwilling to be tough on criminals. For example, apparently stealing 50, 100, or even 1,000 cars doesn't merit any kind of a lengthy sentence from most judges. But since judges are appointed, they are completely unaccountable to the people.
Yet Paul Martin wants to give ALL power to the judges and in the process make politicians completely free of responsibility for anything. With judges ultimately deciding everything, why on earth do we even need to hold elections anymore? Well, perhaps to have somebody to appoint more judges!

I have to believe that even the most devout advocates of a socialist democracy must have winced at Martin's ludicrous suggestion last night to remove the Nothwithstanding power from the politicians.

Unlike judges, politicians are ultimately held accountable, even if it is only every 4 to 5 years. And so to conclude this little Math exercise, number THREE will be Paul Martin's eventual realization, after he loses the upcoming election, of how completely out of touch he is with the Canadian public.

Someone sent this to me in an email...

A young man named Paul bought a donkey from an old farmer for $100.00.

The farmer agreed to deliver the donkey the next day. When the farmer drove up the next day, he said, "Sorry son, but I have some bad news...the donkey is on my truck, but he's dead."

Paul replied, "Well then, just give me my money back."

The farmer said, "I Can't do that. I went and spent it already."

Paul said, "OK then, just unload the donkey anyway".

The farmer asked, "What are ya gonna do with him?"

Paul said, "I'm going to raffle him off."

To which the farmer exclaimed, "You can't raffle off a dead donkey!"

But Paul, with a big smile on his face, said, "Sure I can. Watch me. I just won't tell anybody that he's dead."

A month later the farmer met up with Paul and asked, "What happened with that dead donkey?"

Paul said, "I raffled him off. I sold 500 tickets at two dollars a piece and made a profit of $698.00."

Totally amazed, the farmer asked, "Didn't anyone complain that you had stolen their money because you lied about the donkey being dead?"

And Paul replied, "The only guy who found out about the donkey being dead was the raffle winner, when he came to claim his prize. So I gave him his $2 back plus $200 extra, which is double the going value of a donkey, so he thought I was a great guy."

Paul grew up and eventually became the Prime Minister of Canada, and no matter how many times he lied or how much money he stole from Canadian voters, as long as he gave them back some of the stolen money, most of them
thought he was a great guy.

If you want to see a prime example of exactly how our federal government has gone terribly off-track then read this: http://www.theglobeandmail.com/servlet/ArticleNews/TPStory/LAC/20051215/COMPASSION15/TPNational/Canada

You'll learn that $11 Million was spent on a program to provide financial relief to Canadians caring for a terminally ill loved one. Sounds great. Except for one thing: $69 Million was spent administering it!

That, in a nutshell, is why we're paying huge amounts in taxes but are still incredibly in debt.
