I wrote yesterday about the SMUGNESS of Canada, when it comes to Canadian Perspectives versus American Realities. And LO & BEHOLD, I read today in several Canadian Financial Publications, that there are far more Troubling Times than just somewhat, for Canada’s Near Future . . . Especially with Donald Trump about to Assume the Presidency.
1 – Canada is so far off the Mark from Fiscal Responsibility . . . that all of our Governments’ Hype and Innuendo should be Tagged Criminal, because what they FORECAST is NEVER TRUE, and what they REPORT is almost always a LIE.
2 – Production in Canada is slowing to a GRIND, for which I don’t need the Government to tell me that, just checkout the Restaurants and Retail Stores to see for yourselves. And don’t look at how many people are wondering the Halls of the Malls, look at how many people are carrying BAGS with purchases in them.
3 – ONE THIRD . . . that’s 33% of Canada’s ENTIRE GDP is 100% RELIANT on Trade with the USA. I knew it was high. But I never imagined that it could be this high. In effect, America OWNS Canada, and Canadians don’t even get to enjoy the American Constitution with all the Amendments.
Garret Seinen from Port Alberni, British Columbia Canada wrote in the Last Comment Section . . . “Not you(r) best article. Calling people down simply agitates the mob, but cures nothing.”
I don’t exactly know what Mr Seinen really meant by that . . . but “CALLING PEOPLE DOWN”, especially people who deserve to be “CALLED DOWN” Beats the Hell Out of being SILENT & INVISIBLE.
The BIG Problem with Canada and the Untied States of America, is that our Media hasn’t “CALLED DOWN” the Jerks responsible for spending our Money as if they WON it in a Lottery, or somehow feel that it’s their money to spend as they wish, because all of a sudden, they find themselves at the TROUGH, or have been at the TROUGH for so long, that GORGING themselves on Your Money And Mine is done without conscience, as if it is somehow their due.
SO LET ME “TELL” GARRET SEINEN . . . who wrote the Comment, and I don’t want Mr Seinen to think that I'm picking on him – but I guess I am, because you think that “Calling people down simply agitates the mob, but cures nothing. . . ” is precisely why our Canadian Economy is HEADED FOR THE ROCKS.
OUR MEDIA . . . and those who can make a difference DON’T SPEAK UP OR SPEAK OUT, and saying nothing is nothing short of GIVING ACQUIESCENCE to the Political and Bureaucratic Bastards who are steering our Ship Directly to become a Wreckage beyond all Imagination.
WHEN PRESIDENT-ELECT TRUMP . . . says and writes REPEATEDLY that he is Going To Make America Great Again, I’m not hearing a CODICIL in that, where President-Elect Trump says Canada has any part in Making America Great Again.
LET ME TELL YOU WHAT I’M HEARING . . .
What I’m Hearing . . . is that if you want to do business in the United States of America, you BETTER open your Markets up to all Products made in the USA, or forget about getting your Products into America.
FIRST IT WAS CARRIER (United Technologies)) . . . then it was Ford, then it was Boeing (Air Force One), then it was Lockheed Martin (F-35), then it was GM – and now it’s Toyota - Either Build it in America or Forget about selling it in America.
And either HONESTLY Price what you want to sell to the American Government . . . or find another customer, as Boeing and Lockheed Martin have just discovered.
ONLY SCHMUCKS WHO VOTE FOR A DUFUS LIKE TRUDEAU . . . couldn’t see that there are no Free Rides, and that the World Economy is SLOWING WAY DOWN, and has been for years, to the point where the Government has to STOP spending money as if it won it in a NEVER ENDING Lottery, and begin Creating the Conditions Canada NEEDS for real JOBS, or prepare for the ROCKS.
AND IF THERE ARE ANY CANADIANS . . . who DOUBT that President-Elect Trump is going to LEVEL the North American (NAFTA) Playing Field, whether we like it or not . . . STOP DOUBTING, because if President-Elect Trump can stick it to all Powerful Corporations like GM, Ford, Toyota, Boeing, United Technologies . . . and DON’T FORGET ABOUT MEXICO AND THE WALL . . . does anyone with a THINKING Brain who didn't vote for Trudeau, really believe that President-Elect Trump won't stick it to us?
AND WHY NOT?
I’m certain President-Elect Trump saw the Video which was played Ad Nauseam on all Major American News Channels, when Obama recently visited Ottawa and spoke in Canada’s Parliament, where our FRIGGING IDIOT LEFTIST Members of Parliament, representing 2/3rds of our Government, Chanted Incessantly . . . 4-MORE YEARS, even though Obama’s Second Term was all but done. And the Race was on to Pick a New Presidential Candidate.
So What Does President-Elect Trump OWE To Canada?
THERE ARE NO SACRED COWS . . . IN CANADA:
Anne and I have several Good Friends who own Dairy Farms, which is I am quite Certain is amongst some of the MOST Regulated and Controlled Industries in the World, where it has become almost impossible to get into the Canadian Dairy Industry, because of GOVERNMENT Imposed Quotas, Rules and Regulations, so much so . . . THAT COMPETITION DOES NOT EXIST.
I would HATE to see any of my Farmer Friends Get Hurt . . . but if Canada wants to sell our Goods into the United States, no matter what they are, Canada just might have to GEAR itself to see the Canadian Farming Industry become Competitive, where GOVERNMENT CONTROLLED QUOTAS on everything from Dairy Products, to Poultry, to Pork will have to Disappear.
AND IF ANYONE THINKS THINGS ARE REALLY GOING TO GET BETTER:
Sears, K-Mart and Macy’s in the USA, just announced that between them . . . they will be closing as many as, and perhaps more than 200-Stores. And I’m pretty sure that’s just the Tip of the Iceberg. Does that sound like things are going to be getting Better any time soon?
And as things get tighter in the USA, I CAN ASSURE EVERYONE . . . that President-Elect Trump will do whatever has to be done, not just to make America Great Again, but rather, to keep the American People Working and Surviving, no matter who outside of the USA will suffer.
AND THAT’S WHAT HE WAS ELECTED TO DO . . . AND SHOULD BE DOING.
Unfortunately, all we in Canada have to rely upon, is a Prime Minister and Government, whose biggest concerns are spending OUR TAX DOLLARS and borrowed Money, to show the Globe how generous we are to Third World Countries, Moslem Refugees, Palestinians and the Impending Canadian Marijuana Industry.
This ISN'T the LAST Time I’m going to ASK . . . but certainly, someone out there must have a Couple of Spare Green Cards they could part with.
