Boo Hoo Hoo, Ont./Que. Commies decry Alberta's good fortunes; Plan Raid on its Wealth

Today is a red hot recruitment drive for western separation and the two biggest recruiters seem to be the welfare addicted Ontario business cartel and Commie economist dorks from Quebec.

I'm quite sure there is no speech the Alberta separatist party leader can give what would recruit more Albertans to the cause of separation than these obtuse greed-heads:

"Ontario is in jeopardy of becoming a have-not province as a result of the funding shortfall between what it contributes to the federal treasury and what it receives from Ottawa, a report to be released today warns."

Well boo hoo hoo you squat to pee brought on the over regulation and taxation in your province which stifles economic expansion and revenues and now you whine you pay too much....well lokkit here dipshits, Alberta has been "overpaying" for decades...Alberta families pay 36% more tax that they do not get back than Ontario bite it hard ya Nanny state spoiled brats.

"The release of the report comes just as there is growing unease in Ontario over the cash windfall Alberta is reaping from soaring world energy prices. But while government officials in Ontario would welcome a debate on the challenges Alberta's overflowing coffers pose for Confederation...snip...The Ontario officials say they have no formal action plan to pursue the matter. In fact, they are quietly hoping that someone else, namely Prime Minister Paul Martin, will raise a topic that would undoubtedly stir a backlash in Alberta."

In other words the greedy buggers want a piece of our well deserved pie and they are too chicken shit to start the confrontation, they want the nanny state to do their robbing for them while they sit in their leather bound Bay Street offices and reap the redistributed subsidies for their failing, uncompetative, nanny state protected businesses.....grrrrrr, get my scatter gun, there's thievin' vermin in my backyard garden.

"Montreal accounting professor called on the federal government yesterday to nationalize the oil industry."We have to repatriate this resource," said Leo-Paul Lauzon, who holds a chair in social economy at the Universite du Quebec a Montreal."

Yeeeee hawwww a gen-ewe-whine Quebec Marxist wants the feds to steal Alberta's wealth so Quebec's trough feeders can have cheap gas for the SUVs they buy with their public service salaries paid for with Alberta topped off equalization...this Bolshie gaffe will be great for Alberta Separation Party membership revenues. Damn, these oblivious Franco-commie dips are good for the separation business!

More from this
Cretinous commie dog:

"Oil companies are making immoral profits on the back of this society."

Ahhhhh yes ....the old Marxist saw...profit is "immoral", but theft and tax on tax duplicity isn't...particularly after 10 years of unprofitable economic winter in Alberta caused by the NEP which directly stole 30 billion out of Alberta to give to Quebec as balckmail from Pea Soup separatism. Strange concepts of "morality" exist in the cloistered pods of Marxist academia of La belle Province.

"Nonetheless, most of those funds leave the country, as Canadian oil companies are owned mostly by "foreign interests," the professor said."

An utter lie! Waht he means is Quebec sees no royalties or profits in the sale of Alberta's oil.... but Alberta government and private sector does...because it owns the recourse wholly as per the constitution...and that fact gnaws at his dark little Franco-commie heart.

"There's plenty of oil to be had," Lauzon said."

So now he's a petrol geologist? When it concerns a leftist resource revenue grabs, we have plenty....when it comes to left wing enviro-scams, he says we are running out! What is it Karl?......guess your truth depends on whether you're taxing it or using it in your government bought Cadillac.

"But the companies are voluntarily reducing the offer to increase the price."

This is really hilarious coming from a Marxist economist...he's whining about price and commodity control ( command economics) which is the core of commie economics......what an ludicrous putz! ..... Perfect Candidate for the NDP pud pullers....these neaderthals are still dry-humping proven failed statecraft and failed economic theories from the 18th century....the world has moved on and left these degenerate commie termites in it's wake.....move on or perish in a world where people become more self sufficient and prosperous in free capitalist societies.

"Sometimes, you have to shake things up," said Lauzon, who already has been touted by the NDP as a potential candidate in the riding of Outremont..... "I don't give a damn about what Albertans think."

There's the rub!!! A Degenerate Pseudo-Marxist Party dupe spewing all the fossilized textbook crap he was indoctrinated with at the Moscow school of economics... er.. I mean Montreal. Out dated confrontational, confederally fractious unidimentional political idealism from the 18th century...good goin' prof, ya put another 100,000 into the western separatist camp today.

ABF: I have been an Albertan from before I moved here. I love the land... its people, its bueauty, its positive attitudes and productivity, Its great cities and its small CNR era rural towns....but most of all I love the deep and abiding character of Albertans to prevail as self reliant entrepreneurs and devotees of fairness and civil freedom.

The experience one has in Ontario is the direct opposite, the people are whiney, pompous, self centered, self-righteous and reliant on nanny state's subsidy. Their cities are human cesspools, their politics are playgrounds for human evil and madness and they are so choked by regulatory tyranny their civl and entrepreneurial spirit has had the life choked out of it. Most there have just given up and allow the leviathan state to enslave and abuse them as long as they get a case of beer to take to the cottage in the summer.

Sweet Home Alberta...I'm comin' home to you!

Hey don't think these geed headed comments from these eastern scumbag commies hasn't gone unnoticed in Alberta. My friend on the ASP had his email flooded with requests for memberships and policy pamphlets after this news hit the westewrn political chat groups. Many Albertans recall being bankrupt by PET pushing the very policy this pea soup commie was yapping about. Any of these eastern dipshits that thnk they'll stand still for it a second time don't know Albertans...they make the mistake of thinking all Canadians are the gutless government worshipping catamites they themselves are. Albertans are NOT Quebec's bitch...and that point will be made starkly clear when the inevitable fed revenue raiders come after Alberta's well deserved prosperity.

Bill - Just to let you know. In Okotoks (an area I know you love), they are building thermal houses. You pay about $10G more for the home, but it's built on thermal heating designs. The first set is ready to sell in late fall/early spring from what I heard.

Another great article from Bill!
Trouble with Ontario is their strong sense of entitlement. Doesn't matter where the resource IS , it automatically belongs to Ontario. They'll even fight Quebec for it because Quebec thinks exactly the same way.
That is the flaw in Upper Canada/Lower Canada thinking.Everything that has come after has been an afterthought in the minds of those who made up the UpperCanada/LowerCanada arrangement. They are entitled because they are the only entities that COUNT. Which is exactly WHY PET brought in those ruinous policies, memories of which I am sure escape our younger generation. Maybe NOT in Alberta?

Snowbunnie: The "entitlement" ethic is foreign to the commonwealth societies under British commonlaw ethic. "Entitlement" is a machination of communist social constructs.

"Commonwealth" in the British sense was not about central control and redistribution of communal was about "cooperation between separate sovereign democracoes for the common good of all" Under British rule of law and commonwealth government modles all a citizen was "entitled" to was equality before the law in a nation of peers and his governors were entitled to no more than his adherence to the law and loyalty to his nation as long as either of these did not violate his inalienable individual rights as a british citizen.

"Entitlement" is a term used to denote a share of collected national wealth in a collectivist redistributive ( syndicalist commune) welfare state.

I'll leave it up to you to decide how the concept of "entitelment" permeated social and political mindset in Ontario.....clue: it's closely linked to their corrupted concepts of confederal association.

Let's say that the meanings of "commonwealth" and Communism" have been blurred in Ont. and Quebec by 50 years of collectivist statism built by a large public sector unionist world view.

I'm not sure the ASP or the WSP will be necessary in the very near future. I can smell a change in government coming and so can the Ditherals. It's a welcome change from the stink that has attached itself to PMPM and his party and it smells like freedom. The same wind that carries this sweet smell is the same one that will carry Stephen Harper to 24 Sussex Drive in the spring of 2006. Wait for it. In the meanwhile ,spread the word.

If anybody wants to better understand the mindset of Statists, watch a bit of Star Trek where The Borg are involved. Everytime I see those single minded semi-humans I'm reminded of the mentality that permeates so much of Central and Eastern Canadian thinking. Their concept of Canada is one giant collective, with Ontario as the Brain or Mainframe. I don't know what Quebec is...

Writing from Saskatchewan, I'm sensing a change in attitude here. People are beginning to ask (finally) the hard questions. Our economy is starting to break out, and that's with a lot of anti-business policy in place. People are beginning to realize that if the provincial government opened the doors to business, we'd hand the rest of Canada (except for Alberta), its head on a plate. Mining is exploding, and with the high oil prices, our Tar Sands are being reevaluated and our heavy oil is making a killing.

Best of all, with the new confidence the firt talk of separation is hitting the airwaves. Like my wife says: A lot of people in the West are starting to look at drawing up divorce papers... why stay in an abusive relationship... what do we have to lose? You can't change an abusive partner, so simply leave.

WLM: Only partly true Anonymous and a very transient situation to say the least. The concept of full independence is still scary to many Albertans who fail to realize that it is both politically/ economically sound and advantageous to disassociate with the Ottawa government....That's essentially all we are doing is losing one degenerate and abusive level of government which has become redundant and repugnant to Alberta....we can't "leave" Canada …. we are landlocked and we will continue to honor trade relations. The whole federalist propaganda canard about "breaking up Canada”...and doom and disaster is a pathetic ploy to connect with Albertans emotionally when there is no merit . Ottawa has been openly economically hostile and politically abusive with Alberta for 100 years so this loyalty is misplaced.

But that realization can be made within a 4 year term of a pro autonomy AB government getting the facts and numbers out to the people. In simple terms, the only reason for an Albertan to not seek independence is purely sentimental... some displaced loyalty to Ottawa which is largely illusionary. Once the illusion is discovered and widely accepted and the fiscal advantage of independence exploited, Alberta will cut Ottawa loose.

Now even after separation there are options....I suspect wise Albertans will start to renegotiate confederal association with Ottawa on Alberta's terms and have this written in stone in the constitution...we could get all the changes we and the ROC want concerning democratic reform, senate reform, confederal equality and unquestionable provincial sovereignty over the subjects most dear to Albertans: property, civil liberties, immigration, health, pensions, natural resources, and schools and police forces.

Separation is not a negative thing in light of the decayed confederal administration of modern Ottawa bureaucrats.

WLM: Well Anon, I have "spread the word” for over 18 years to no avail or substantive reform…. and I am convinced ( having interfaced with federal politicians all that time) that the federal system is too monolithic and the current state of devolved partisnism at play in parliamentary politics have rendered the federal system incapable of change.

I tend to agree with DT that Harper's win will only delay the inevitable. However when Albertan's see how Harper is hamstrung by a liberal-NDP-MSM coalition ( voting NDP is voting liberal because they will always form coalitions)and...having to work with the BQ as a partner in re-establishing traditional provincial constitutional powers...Harper will be fodder for the vast leftist media. He will serve an embattled single term before Ontario returns us to status quo liberal corruption and nepotistic federalism.

Harper will fail to install the democratic reforms to senate, the house and our elections that Albertans demand....not that he doesn't want to or won't try....the system has been built to resist democratic change....Harper will be met with a stalemate if he pursues the constitutional reform agenda that Alberta wants....which puts Alberta right back to where we started when we saw separation as the only way to get the type of federal change to stop the raiding of our economy and jurisdictions...If these are important to Alberta it will have to become independent of Ottawa to install these political and economic changes within its jurisdiction.

I hope Harper can pull it off but I think only a fool would not have a contingency plan should he fail….and with the amount of oil revenue at stake, Albertans had better prepare for a plundering of their economy by the greed heads in Montreal and Toronto who want Ottawa to use its power to sack our good fortunes for their own venal extravagances.

"In our house we are talking separation and joining up here in Sask."

WLM: Our house, we had this discussion (my wife was a Reform candidate twice) after the 2000 Liberal federal win where the Liberals/Chretien had a dismal record and no vison so their whole campaign was a rehash of the Scopes monkey trial where Stock Day was personally assassinated by the MSM and Alberta was made a scapegoat. This is where Chretien said Albertans were not really Canadian...they were "not like us" and he'd rather not deal with us...he was for Canada where Alberta was not. It's not so much this crooked old swine would say these things but the fact there was NO ONE in the eastern media or political establishment stepped forward to defend Alberta as part of Canada and no one, absolutely no one took the Liberals to task for the unCanadian attacks on Stockwell Day's personal faith...had he been a minority there would be indictments.

The liberals won by pitting east aginst west...setting Canadians at each other's throats with a litany of illusory demons....they publicly destroyed a popular western political leader ( and a good man) by dehumanising Him, his personal religious faith and those he represented. This was the lowest point in Canadian history. Our federalism and political discourse had been dragged into the cess pool by the most corrupt and unethical eastern political cartel we have ever had to suffer under.

This was my loyalty "tipping point".

These incidents made me starkly aware that not only was the political establishment defending the nepotistic federalism which raped Alberta during the NEP, but the general population saw Alberta/the west as some second class citizens or confederal region which was inferior or unworthy. THIS was my nationalist tipping point.

The wife and I joined the AIP and ran candidates in the province then we joined the ASP. We supported Harper but never really believed he would take the western agenda to cure our alienation to Ottawa.....we never really believed he would be able to stop the rape of the west.....we HOPED he could but we support an independence alternative should he fail.

At this point our family has one foot in Canada and one in an independent Alberta..whether we step out of Canada completely depends on what Harper can do to undo 90 years of Ottawa's east-centric nepotism and confederal descrimination in less than 4 years...that's a tall order and the odds say Alberta will be independent within the decade if Ottawa continues in its status quo manner.

WLM: western separation was always a movement democratic reform was until it grew legs and became a party which formed the federal opposition....Western separation is the contingency plan for the west...we really don't want to belong to a country that has two-tiered citizenship....where one region is superior to another ...where citizens in one region are held in social/political contempt...where the central government sets one region against another as it has with social groups...groups politically segregated and fighting each other for more "entitlements". Western separatism has evolved into a political party in 3 weatern provinces and the next stage is control of the provincial capitals...because unlike hoping to change the monolithic federal system, we only need local consensus to be independent and install democratic reform and economic prosperity locally.

This is the key sales point for separatism: Ottawa, with its devolved confederalism, does not "spread prosperity equally" among provinces...if this were true there would be no "have not" provinces" after 45 years of liberal-marxian wealth transfer pandering. Ottawa spreads NON prosperity equally. It penalizes productivity and rewards non productivity. There is no incentive for unmotivated regions to seek any prosperity and they become addicted to is this mediocrity in economics and governance that Ottawa spreads equally across the some deranged Jhonny Appleseed sowing the seeds of delegated failure which will bear bitter fruit of divisiveness.

Long story short: the Liberals have been planting absurd anti-Alberta stories in the mainstream media this week because it is The Silly Season and it appears they are floating the trial balloon of an anti-US AND anti-Alberta campaign. Believe it or not folks, sometimes governments, even western democracies, try to influence media coverage, no tinfoil necessary to buy that assertion.

Lauzon and Courschesne's arguments were nonsensical at face value and should be ridiculed by anyone with Economics 200. Alberta's revenue is 28% from resources so it is suuuuper obvious that WHEN THE PRICE OF OIL GOES UP TO RECORD LEVELS THERE WILL TEND TO BE A FEW EXTRA BUCKS IN THE ALBERTA COFFERS DUHDUHDUH!

Constifuckingtutionally and morally that cash belongs to Albertans, end of story.

I say this whole "Ontario wants Alberta's loot" story is 95% baloney and is designed to:

a) Evoke a strong emotional reaction, primarily among Albertans but also for those of us Ontarians who understand Alberta already gets screwed the worst by Liberal Federalism, likely leading to an ill-considered response, something poker players do all of the time.

b) This is a trial balloon being floated in the obsequious press to gauge response. About 2 months ago there was a trial balloon floated that the Liberals were considering scrapping the GST, just to give you some perspective.

Myself, I say if Harper goes down The Republic of Alberta should use that cash to buy The Entire Fucking MacKenzie Valley from the bankrupt (ins sooooo many ways) nihilist Statist entity that is known as The Federal Government of Canada. I used to work up thre and can tell you there and there's like ~10,000 people, max, who live around there. Give them each a million bucks and for ten billion you've got a nice chunk of real estate. Buy the whole thing, straight cash, homie.

Don't give up on Ontario yet; despite what you read in The Globe I think the CPC pick up seats in Ontario; I say the only two Liberals left standing in Eastern Ontario after the next election will be hardcore statists Mauril Belanger and Peter Milliken. Ottawa will go Conservative and here is a hint: The CPC is criticizing the Liberals plan to axe a ton of civil service jobs. Silly move by the CPC, right? Wrong; it's a sign that The Liberals have given up on Vote Rich Ottawa, Gatineau, Eastern Ontario, and The Outaouais, all of which are of course infested by filthy statist clients on the Liberal payroll.

You know those government buildings in Hull\Gatineau? That riding is about to go Bloc and so is a lot of the Outaouais I think. There will be very few Liberal ridings within an hour and a half drive of Parliament Hill after the next election, I would wager, so don't be faked out by absurd stories planted in The Media about how money grubbing Central Canada votes Liberal and wants to raid the Alberta treasury because I don't think they are an entirely accurate interpretation of reality. Yes, there are plenty of Ontario left whingers from culture of entitlement who are yapping about raiding Alberta but they are an increasingly marginalized group and I for one am not shy about engaging them.

It may seem counterintuitive for Stevie Harper to be defending government jobs in Ottawa, but I argue we gotta take the halos off, get our hands dirty, and make these kind of compromises in order to defeat The Statists.

I appreciate your insight and opinion Analogue, but from where I sit (halfway between a move back to Alberta from a disappointing Prison-like contract experience in Ontario, there is only one formula that matter when determining how parliament will look after an federal election:

Liberal support is directly proportional to federal subsidy dependence in a region. Also a vote for the NDP is a vote for a liberal-socialist alliance.

Northern Ontario will go solidly red this time because the poor buggers are productivity starved and as reliant on fed subsidy as Manitoba and Sask. Newfie should go CPC but won't because we all know where they keeps their brains bye ;-)

Quebec will vote solidly BQ and continue to elect separatists that never separate.

Alberta will end up paying the bills for all the Liberal/NDP/BQ election promises...even after this bold statement by Ralphie today that any hand caught stealing from Alberta's cookie jar will be sent back to its owner in a box.

You can count on the next federal election being all about busting greedy Alberta's hump to share their wealth with 9 "have nots"....just count on it Analogue...I've watches this shit come out of the same Ottawa hole the same way for the past 35 never changes.

If Albertans want to keep their shirts they better get organized because the pillage is coming ( it will actually be a Martin election promise) and Ralph hasn't the nuts to blow the thieving bastards a new ass hole like they deserve.

Again, Albertans are on their own in this like they were in the 30s the 80s and now...
