The Great Political Debate

All four Federal Political party logos

Hey, I can be a sarcastic bitch at times, but I also like to poke fun at our Political Leaders. Hey, its better than watching my money go everywhere but into my pocket. Plus, well, it helps keep one sane, when you don’t take Politicians too seriously, now if only they can take a joke.

Thought we were Middle Class folks, oops guess not

The working poor called Middle Class

You can’t live in a fantasy world and pretend you make a ton of money, you won’t pay your bills that way. So how come our Federal Government can? I mean really, the typical average couple earn $120K yearly? I like to dream, but come on, even if I earned what my wife does, we wouldn’t even be close, so where can I get a job like Blake & Laurie?

Game of Egos?

Posted by Moaning Mary on February 20, 2014 in Federal |
political party logs represent anything Canadian

Do the party logos reflect the Party, or the Leaders vision? These days the slicker the logo, the more leery I am of thinking that they can represent my views, my values. But are they all the same, does one Party have a bigger ego than the others? Do any of them inspire me to learn more about them, their policies?

Making Life Affordable

Posted by Moaning Mary on February 4, 2014 in Federal |
NDP promise to make life affordable

It is a good slogan, one that I truly believe in too. The real question though, is can any political party deliver on such a promise? Tom Mulcair is attacking the ATM fees charged by banks, as a way to make life more affordable to the average person, but is that simply because it is […]

Tom is having a Sale

NDP donation drive

It is funny, kind of but I don’t know, while I know that the Conservatives seem to be selling us out, does making a political donation deserve to be treated as a joke? As a bargain?

Toss Out The Treadmill Martha

Canada Post CEO Chopra

Up until 2011 Canada Post made money. Now we are going to end home delivery because we are losing our shirts. So just what happened that saw a Corporation making profits for over a decade, become so unprofitable? Any clue Mr Economist, Prime Minister?

Four By-Elections

Posted by Moaning Mary on October 20, 2013 in Federal |
Byelection called for four ridings

November 25 will be another test for the Opposition parties. Four byelections were called, two held by Liberals, two by Conservatives. Now the real question is, will the People actually get off their duffs, vote, and show their Canadian spirit by turfing the Conservatives? Will the Liberals gain or lose?

Raise for the Middle Class

Justin Trudeau at Parliament

Who doesn’t want a bigger paycheque? I wouldn’t mind having more money but the reality is, giving me more money only helps increase the Federal coffers, through the high taxes being charged, for less services. Sorry Justin, but we need to start thinking outside the box. Rasing the minimum wage hasn’t improved our lot, nor has it helped spur business. Its only added to the cost of living. Think outside the box.

See Tom, The Senate Does Work

Posted by Moaning Mary on June 28, 2013 in Federal |

Not only did Tom Mulcair of the NDP not pick up any points in the latest polling data, but today’s Senate Amendment that gutted a bad piece of legislation from Parliament, only shows that abolishing the Senate is not in our best interests. While it has become a rarity, the Conservative majority didnt help them, as it was their own members who helped send this union bashing legislation back to Parliament.
