I can't believe this shit!  Not an iota of heart towards low-income earners and their children.  Nope.  It's the almighty god of economics that must rule.  Fuckin' jerk!  :explode

Well that's par for the course for him, I think. I'm actually glad he's so open about his right-wing ideology. Next time anyone asks me why they should vote NDP when a Liberal vote will get a Con out of power, I'll get them to read Cherniak and then ask, "What's the difference?"

(Yes, I know there are a few Liberals left of Cherniak. I just don't have any faith that those Liberals will ever be in any position to influence policy in Canada.)

Please note: This response was not sent from my wireless Blackberry.   :wink:

Jason Cerniak is more or less the Liberal Party's version of Ezra Levant. I notice that Eugene at Le Revue Gauche and Robert at My Blahg are already taking him apart as well, so let's keep the pressure on.

The guy seems to be impervious, though. You are quite right to sense a fathomless presumption of entitlement, Berlynn.

Hell, kuri: I wish I could claim credit, but liberal catnip already pulled that one on him once.

It deserves to be a classic, though, doesn't it?

Vile. And why does this little shit assume that minimum-wage workers have some kind of guarantee of 40 hours a week. Retail, restaurant and services are notoriously unsteady.

It is also very insulting to suggest to people who want to work that some kind of social assistance is the solution to their problems.

And why does he assume that students who live at home are working only for luxuries?

He should be forced to do it for a year, with no help from mummy, daddy or his political godfathers.

Way to go, Berlynn!  I've commented (a few times...including one goof I made...sorry!).
I just came home from work and noticed your posts (and the other responses at PB, later on).
I wonder if that guy's still a-lawyering. How can he write such things?

Well, I just haven't been so spittin' mad in a long time!  I had to do something and blogging it seemed the best way to reach a few.  Just bipped to the PB page and see you've all been there to vote for it!  Ah, shucks. :)

I searched for this PB (whatever that is!) voting page, and couldn't find it. JC sounds too simple-minded and inexperienced. Doesn't sound like he understands a heck of a lot about income vs. expenses, and he hasn't bothered to research any stats on who lives on minimum income and the number of their dependants, if any. He is mouthing off an ill-thought out solution ('reasonable' increases in minimum wage) without presenting any facts or numbers as to why his solution is better than anything else, or even what a 'reasonable' increase.

I just don't get the economics of these guys, their reasoning doesn't make any sense. Why would working families be expected to look to the government to institute some kind of programme that would take care of their needs? When he says that if someone was a parent they would have access to government programmes, I see red.
Rather than have business just pay a fair wage we will create another welfare programme so that "business" can be off the hook. Bigger government = bad ; unless it's supporting business, then it's sound financial planning.
just picture it

It's not about research, reason or reality with these puffed-up little pishers.  It's about desperately sucking ass and making sure everyone knows how important and connected they are.

The economic sparring is really quite boring. But for sure, you can't get any more pro-business than that drivel.

Nice responses you blogging warriors  :arr!:  :piratedance  :piratepost

Yeah for sure Gunnar. I think my 'reflex' is off or something. Such twaddle.
But yay for the blogger anti-reactionaries! Great posts you people.

Eph, try this link and scroll down the page until you see it.  Vote for any others that you find worthy along the way (such as A.R.'s) by clicking in the box beside the word, vote.  

I've been trying to remember to check the site daily, but the holly daze has taken its toll on my time online.
