DUH! Harper and his trained seals haven't been honest with Canadians "EVER"

New report suggests Pierre Poilievre's TFSA statements are quite "misleading"

A new report suggests the Conservatives, and most notably Employment Minister Pierre Poilievre, have been "misleading" the public when it comes to claiming those who benefit from Tax Free Savings Accounts are overwhelmingly lower-income Canadians.

In fact, the report suggests the only low-income Canadians likely see any real benefit from TFSAs are spouses and children in high-earning households.

In April, two separate reports from the Parliamentary Budget Officer and the Broadbent Institute that found TFSAs disproportionately benefit wealthy Canadians and, in the long term, will eventually lead to more than $10 billion in lost revenue.

In response, jobs minister Poilievre pointed to data not released to the public and said "most of the people who have maxed out their tax-free savings accounts earn less than $60,000 dollars a year."
Well, now that data's been disclosed and it seems Poilievre is trying to pull a fast one.

According to the new Broadbent Institute report authored by Simon Fraser economics professor Rhys Kesselman (one of the original architects of TFSAs), Poilievre's repeated claims that "about 60 per cent" or "two-thirds" of those who maxed out their TFSA contribution earn less than $60,000 a year can be explained by asset shifting within wealthy households.



I'm passing this on as I did not want to be the only old person receiving it. Actually, it's not a bad thing to be called, as you will see.
  • Old People are easy to spot at sporting events; during the playing of the National Anthem, Old People remove their caps and stand at attention and sing without embarrassment.  They know the words and believe in them.
  • Old People remember World War II, Pearl Harbor, Guadalcanal , Normandy, and Hitler. They remember the Atomic Age, the Korean War, The Cold War, the Jet Age and the Moon Landing. They remember the 50 plus Peacekeeping Missions from 1945 to 2005, not to mention  Vietnam ..
  • If you bump into an Old Person on the sidewalk he/she will apologize. If you pass an Old Person on the street, he will nod or tip his cap to a lady. Old People trust strangers and are courtly to women.
  • Old People hold the door for the next person and always, when walking, make certain the lady is on the inside for protection.
  • Old People get embarrassed if someone curses in front of women and children and they don't like any filth or dirty language on TV or in movies.
  • Old People have moral courage and personal integrity. They seldom brag unless it's about their children or grandchildren.
  • It's the Old People who know our great country is protected, not by politicians, but by the young men and women in the military serving their country.

    This country needs Old People with their work ethic, sense of responsibility, pride in their country and decent values.

    We need them now more than ever.
    Thank God for Old People
Thanks Kerry

You gotta love the Fireman that made this decision... 

Fireman's Revenge

This is one of the best photos I've seen in years!
I bet the driver, a city councilman, won't think he is above the law next time...
I've got one thing to say to the Firefighter who did this...
That's' the attitude I want if my house is on fire!!!

Thanks Richard

Two terrorists ...

 Two terrorists are in a locker room taking their annual shower after
their bomb making class when one notices the other one bending over
holding his stomach in agony.

He has a huge cork stuck in his butt.

"If you do not mind me saying," said the second terrorists, "that cork
looks very uncomfortable. Why do you not take it out?"

"I regret I cannot," lamented the first terrorist. "It is permanently
stuck in my butt."

"I do not understand," said the other.

The first terrorist says, "I was walking along the beach and I tripped
over an oil lamp. There was a puff of smoke, and then a huge old man
in an American flag with a white beard and top hat came boiling out.

He said, "I am Uncle Sam, the Genie. I can grant you one wish."

I said, "No shit?"

God Bless America!

Thanks Randy
