What Time Is Recess At Conservative.ca?

The latest edition of fearmongering and juvenile reasoning has been posted on that eyesore the Conservatives call a website. Look out Atlantic Canada, it's your turn to be bombarded by the asinine, pummeled by the absurd. I actually laughed:
The list of people who lose under the Dion Carbon Tax continues to grow:

Truckers, farmers, fishermen, seniors on fixed incomes, families who use natural gas, families who use home heating oil, commuters, taxi drivers, people who shop for groceries, electricity users, business travelers, people who fly in airplanes, manufacturing workers, resource workers, people who live in rural Canada, people who live in the suburbs, and families with children could all expect to pay more under the Dion Carbon Tax.

I didn't realize "people who shop for groceries" were a subset of our society? Doesn't this imply some amongst us don't eat? Who writes this crap? The list grows, what next, "people who walk erect", "ethnic groups in the 905", "soft nationalists in Bloc held ridings", "children who take baths".

This is your contribution to the debate Conservatives, this is your braintrust, this is your party. The sense of pride.

Well it is true that people who shop for groceries will pay more because energy costs are going to rise, that's nothing to laugh about. I suppose they could have added "and don't have a garden." but that's quibbling

It's also true that people who buy groceries get a tax break, but that's quibbling too I suppose.

They also left the oil companies, off the list too.

I think they are going to be hurt by Dion's Green Shift.

What do the Tories have against the oil companies and why aren't they concerned about them too?

I TOTALLY LOVE being back in Canada eh?
But here is the the deep thought: Perhaps the Ditto Heads are lulling folks into thinking they're all folks like; well, the Duke@YORK draging their knuckels though the soggy, soggy summer grass but whilst, they actually,- have a cunning plan!

I guess what really gets the CONs' goat on Dion's TOE (tax on everything inc.) is that it's really going to hit hard people who wear tinfoil hats...
Let's not talk about your own plan, which in an imaginary bubble will be nirvana for those who love talking oil blops and the CEOs who nurse them...

Yep. PEI is looking bluer all the time.

Whooee! Maybe that's "people who shop for groceries" as oppose to people who have domestic servants to shop for groceries. I don't reckon King Steve's been prowlin' the aisles at the A&P too much, these days.

The Grits oughta be out there with examples of how the shift will impact various typical Canajuns. Work up some balance sheets like the Greens did and show that most average Canajuns'll be better off after they get the tax breaks.

I figger most Canajuns want to do something good fer ol' Mother Earth but they need to have some definite figures and calculations on how it will affect them, personally. The calculator on thegreenshift.ca is woefully inadequate. Some simple examples would be far better.
