More excellent blog entries and comments from the BnR gang.  :clap:

Today I actually heard the term "worker's market" believe it or not!?!?

Of course, I can find no referece to the radio news item on the CBC internet portal.

Anyway, I am tired of hearing the same old "let the market decide..." arguments to deny anything and everything that would help the working poor, many of them being women.

There's a never ending list of excuses as to why nothing can be done for those at the bottom of the income scale...and yes most are women.  

And there's always a never ending ist of excuses for the absolutely obscene salaries and stock options of CEO's and the like...and guess who they are mostly?

I'd like to nominate Cheri DiNovo for premier...and Jason Cherniak for upper middleclass twit of the month.

When I hear these Liberazi's whine, I always think of that old Phil Och's song "Love Me I'm a Liberal"

Yes. God bless Phil Ochs.

Quote
Once I was young and impulsive
I wore every conceivable pin
Even went to the socialist meetings
Learned all the old union hymns
But I've grown older and wiser
And that's why I'm turning you in
So love me, love me, love me, I'm a liberal


The thing is, I don't think that most Young Liberals were ever young and impulsive. Some people are just born middle-aged.

Or as the saying goes, "No shirt too young to stuff."

Thing is, the Liberazis could have split the difference and said...okay you unreasonable needippers we'll up it to $9.00 an hour.   Take it and shutup.

Or maybe...just maybe...to show we're not totally heartless shitheads...we'll bump our annual increase in the minimum wage to 50 cents an hour instead of 25 cents.    That way the working poor would be seeing $8.25 an hour for 2007 instead of $8.00 and $8.75 an hour next year.

Especially in light of the great emergency in passing an MPP salary increase...oh yeah...how much did they pay out to that Hydro honcho in severance?

But noooooooo!!!!!  It would cost more to "biggy size it" and you might get one less Timbit in your box.   The folks at head office in Bentonville, Arkansas would definitely  be pissed.

And what about the folks on social assistance?   You know...alot of whom are there because of the federal Liberazis gutting of EI?    Any 25% increase there?   Nope!   What about the folks on ODSP?   You know...the disabled????     At the time the Ontario Liberazis felt an MPP pay raise was an "emergency", did they give one thought to the idea that maybe...just maybe the disabled might be having a hard time of it too?

The other folks who burn my ass are the head honchos in the CFIB (Canadian Federation of Independent Business).    These folks do an absolutely lousy job of representing their members interests.

Most small businesses rely on consumer spending...folks having a little extra cash in their pocket to spend on the odd little "frill".    Yet, they consistently argue against any policy whatsoever that would put more money into workers pockets.

And if workers don't have money in their pockets, they don't buy stuff from members of the CFIB...in fact they're more likely to spend what money they've got in big box retailers.    So ultimately the policies that the CFIB advocates are contrary to the interests of CFIB members.

If I were a member of CFIB, I'd be calling for a "leadership review".

This debacle with the old boys' club a.k.a pseudo-progressive male bloggers reminds me of my favourite 70's radical feminist bumper sticker:

Kd makes me sick.  These young fools just do not get it.  How many times?  :banghead  How many ways can it be explained?  And why do they run from their own power, privilege, and inherent sexism?  AAACK!  

I want to cry.  It's sad.  It's so very sad.  

And they call themselves progressive... :?

And this guy's remarks hurt most of all.  Good comments there, Debra.

Just out of curiousity, why are there so many references to Cherniak's age? I don't see what that has to do with anything....  :?
