Across my desk, I receive much info, opinions and trivia
re our world today...our lifestyle...plans to benefit us in many ways...
solutions and programs to institute by local and provincial governments.
(The following are comments from several of my correspondents)
Opinion re my series on 'Infiltration of Muslims'
It comes from forgotten lessons of history. Muslims were a nuisance to Europe throughout the dark ages. In the late 18th and 19th centuries, pirates from Libya and Algeria attacked and pillaged trade ships in the Mediterranean...often enslaving the passengers and crew. The Libyan ambassador defended this piracy, saying that his Islamic religion gave him and his country that right. This led to the Barbary Coast wars. They were called 'Barbarians' back then.
Nothing has become more civilized in recent years. Germany, France and Sweden are up to their ears with violence, including countless aggressive gang rapes...almost all committed by Muslims. Stephen Harper had said 'No' to Syrian refugees...already knowing what was happening in Europe...and not welcoming these problems in Canada. That was, of course, perceived as 'hateful'.
I have said before, “It makes no difference at all whether you are a King, an elected President or even a Dictator: your first order of business is to protect your people and preserve your civilization.”

Wisdom From Early Ages
“The Budget should be balanced.
The Treasury should be refilled;
Public debt should be reduced;
The arrogance of officialdom should be tempered and controlled;
And the assistance to foreign lands should be curtailed...
lest Rome will become bankrupt.
People must again learn to work instead of living on public assistance.”
(Cicero, 55 BC)
So, evidently we've learned bugger all over the past 2,071 years!
One of my readers, futher comments, “Many of our traditions from past history have 'value and richness' today. Often we become so wrapped up in new technology and fast-paced living of today we tend to 'flow with the tide' of what is modern and new...ignoring basic family roots of our culture. Native Americans and many Canadians still live by their traditions of yesterday...adapting to them with philosophies of today.”
CPP Ponzi Scheme
When the CPP was put in place by the government of the day in 1965,
it was meant to assist people that did not have a pension.
Employee put in a per-cent and the employer doubled the employee's input. There is no money from the CPP from the Government of Canada. For a fee from the pool, the government was supposed to make the pool grow. We as Canadians are getting less than half of what that pool should by paying out every month. We are being cheated out of something that is really ours...not the government's This should be investigated by the Supreme Court.
Those Who Went Before: One very major thing wrong with the government's calculations of 'available CPP' is that they forgot to figure in the people WHO DIED BEFORE THEY EVER COLLECTED A CPP CHEQUE. Where did that money go?????
The Math: Remember, not only did you and I contribute to CPP but your employer did, too...totalling 15% of your income before taxes. If you averaged only $30K over your working life (say 45 years), that's $202,500. Read that again! Did you see where the Government paid one single penny? We are talking about the money you and your employer put in a Government bank to insure you and I that we would have a retirement cheque from the money we put in...not the Government. If you calculate the future invested value of $4,500 per year (yours and your employer's contribution) at a simple 5% interest, after 49 years of working, you'd have $892,919.98,
The Scheme: If you took out only 3% per year, you'd receive $26,787.60 per year...and it would last better than 30 years (until you're 95 if you retire at age 65) and that's with no interest paid on that final amount on deposit! If you bought an annuity and it paid 4% per year, you'd have a lifetime income of $2,976.40 per month. These losers in Ottawa have pulled off a bigger Ponzi scheme than Bernie Madoff ever did! They call CPP an 'entitlement' even though most of us have been paying for it all our working lives...and now when it's time for us to collect, the Government is running out of money! Why does the Government keep using it as their general piggy bank? They are calling CPP payouts 'an entitlement' . Just because they borrowed the money for other government spending, doesn't make my benefits some kind of charity or handout!
Think about senator entitlements we pay for: free healthcare, outrageous retirement packages, 67 paid holidays, three weeks paid vacation, unlimited paid sick days! NOW, that's welfare...and they have the nerve to call my CPP retirement payments : entitlements???
The Refugees: The latest estimate (as per Global News) is that it is going to cost SIX HUNDRED MILLION ($600,000,000) to bring in the 25,000 refugees. The Government (according to the Public Accounts office) is already FIVE BILLION in the hole. How much more will it take from our CPP to cover this expense? The Immigration Minister, John McCallum, in a recent Global interview, said that he was presenting his plan to Cabinet shortly. He could not be pinned down as to the cost. Will they write a blank cheque out of our CPP???
The new philosophy is refugees first...Canadians last.
Who stands on guard for us?
Employee Notice for Old People
(this is finally a 'chuckle'!)
Due to the current financial situation caused by the slowdown in the economy, Government has decided to implement a scheme to putting workers of 50 years of age and older on early, mandatory retirement...thus creating jobs and reducing unemployment. This scheme will be known as RAPE (Retired Aged People Early).
Persons selected to be RAPED can apply to the Government to be considered for the SHAFT program (Special Help After Forced Termination).
Persons who have been RAPED and SHAFTED will be reviewed under the SCREW program (System Covering Retired-Early Workers).
A person may be RAPED once, SHAFTED twice and SCREWED as many times as the Government deems appropriate.
Persons who have been RAPED could get AIDS (Additional Income for Dependents & Spouse) or HERPES (Half Earnings for Retired Personal Early Severance).
Obviously, persons who have AIDS or HERPES will not be SHAFTED or SCREWED any further by the Government.
Persons who are not RAPED and are staying on will receive SHIT (Special High Intensity Training) as possible. The Government has always prided themselves on the amount of SHIT they give our citizens.
If you feel that you do not receive enough SHIT, please bring this to the attention of your MP...who has been trained to give you all the SHIT you can handle.
