The Things You Only See On The CBC

Old joke form behind the Iron Curtain:
Pravda reports the results of a race between Americans and Soviets: "Russians finished second and Americans finished second last."

The more things change....

That headline wouldn't fit "True-Dope-ia's" assertion that the budget will balance itself...hence the obfuscation.

Let's see if they print this headline:

HARPER WINS A STRONG MAJORITY MANDATE

CBC would report: "Mulcair narrowly missed coalition mandate."

No partisanship here, no no no no no. It's so amateur and obvious it would be funny, is so many people didn't fall for it.

Oh, and the billion bucks a year it sucks up.

And the surplus would even be LARGER if taxpayers didn't have to pay for the CBC itself!

Likely the last one for a while if the polls are right.

Cbcpravda is in all out anti Harper mode

Stephen Taylor, good call. I recall seeing the first headline and thinking, "Why does the CBC think such a surplus is only in the second quarter?"

Harper Derangement Syndrome is rampant at CBC and all other mainstream media outlets. There is only one cure for this sickness, a Harper Conservative majority on October 19. It will cure them of the main symptoms, overwhelming urge to tinker with facts to skew opinion and running off at the mouth spewing lies and hatred.

Canadian Press headline and story were worse. Basically saying that June surplus was less than last year's and burying the info of the overall 5 billion surplus to middle of story.

Liberals know they should never tell other Liberals that they spent less than they took in.

That 5 billion surplus needs to be spent to build new bike lanes across Canada..

Wrong. The patient is terminal...there is no cure. Let the revolution begin.

Two questions.

1.Why would the CBC be so dumb as to be so blatantly anti-Conservative knowing their eventual fate is decided by the government?

2.Even more puzzling, why has the government allowed them to get away with it?

I hope a Harper majority turns the CBC over to Don Cherry to fix.

It's likely that CBC is going to die in the next few years not matter what.

1. NHL rights were lost and with it, over $100 million in revenue.
2. Harper has stacked the CBC brass with conservative selections.
3. Technology is making over-the-air broadcasting obsolete.

Budgets don't balance themselves it takes creative booking.

A "surpluss" is just illusory as long as we have a debt of $3/4 trillion.

Occam, I agree and have stated as you have, that as long as there is debt an annual operating surplus does not exist.

I was glad to see that Mr. Harper took some credit for this situation, and pointed out, implicitly, that low taxes, balanced budgets and a low debt-to-GDP ratio, together, constitute the best formula for economic resiliency in the face of uncertainty.

Nevertheless, he really ought to have gone much farther -- responding directly and passionately to Mad Tom's lunatic ravings about "Stephen Harper has nothing to offer on financial management or public procurement such as fighter aircraft; heck he can't even deliver the mail."

Mr. Harper might have pointed out the fiscal condition of the Province of Ontario under Mr. Bob Rae as an indication of what we can reasonably expect from an NDP-come-Liberal "coalition" (Mr. Rae being the singular embodiment of that coalition, being both, you know, NDP and Liberal). I am sure that other commenters can relate their own experiences of life under a provincial NDP/Liberal gong-show.

He certainly should have fired back on the fighter aircraft procurement issue, pointing out both that that subject was so 2011 (get some new material, Mad King Ludwig) and that we certainly know how the NDP would handle the matter -- no fighter aircraft and a defenceless country. And besides which, Tom, why would you be in favour of fighter aircraft, anyway, when you don't believe that the country faces any threats?

As to the mail, obviously Mr. Mulcair doesn't check his own mailbox. If he did, he'd notice that 75%+ of what comes through the mail these days is corporate advertising. So why, exactly, as a taxpayer, am I subsidizing the delivery of that material? And what, exactly, is Tom saying: he's going to raise corporate tax rates at a time of global economic uncertainty so that he can, in part, continue to subsidize corporations by continuing the utterly antiquated practice of door-to-door mail delivery? Whaa?

i'm shocked... that's just so unlike them.

Can't possibly be a surplus. Didn't the Parliamentary Budget Officer tell us that we were heading into deficit not long before the election was called? So is he a Liberal cheerleader or a no-nothing moron?

Just think - that surplus would have been even higher had the CBC been dumped. But then who would have reported it? Oh - there are other media outlets?
Who knew?

On a related topic has anyone seen the TV ad from the Friends of the CBC asking the network to be free from political interference. Now as the old saying goes, that is like the pot calling the kettle black. We'd all like the TV networks to be politically neutral and we all know that it will never happen.

The Communist Bullsh-t Collective (CBC) is always in anti-Harper mode

Privatize the left-wing CBC. Buy a bumper sticker, show your support.

Mr Tom Mulcair, Mr Trudeau's brains behind the curtain and their media pit crew need to be reminded Mr Harper is an economist, the public needs to realize he just might know a thing or two about economics and fiscal management, a cut above all the mouth pieces shooting off about how they know better, they'll take care of us and our kids from cradle to grave, tie us up with legislation to protect us from ourselves. That might work if the money comes from planet spectra but it doesn't. Add to that they don't like the Oil Sands, or the pipeline so where the have-not provinces who vote Liberal and NDP like Atlantic Canada, Quebec and Ontario think their Equalization will come from doesn't seem to enter their minds.

When it comes to defense the NDP don't believe in spending money on it,with them it's tea and sympathy.

As for Rae he has been redeemed, the McGuinty cum Wynne Liberal mess has given him a vindication of sorts with an even worse economic nightmare for Ontario. The people of Ontario accept lies repeatedly from Liberals and do not believe or accept the truth from Conservatives.

Privatize, I prefer pulverize.

If you privatize, you may as well pulverize.

Without the bloated subsidy but still saddled with bloated salaries, bloated egos and p*ss poor content, this monstrosity would be done in a month. Even the "Friends of the CBC" couldn't salvage it since, if they were asked to contribute, they would run for the hills in typical lefty fashion.

Occam said: "A "surpluss" is just illusory as long as we have a debt of $3/4 trillion."

Let's not exaggerate too much, Occam. According to the Canada Debt Clock, we're currently holding $806 billion (US) in debt. Not an insignificant sum by any means but given that the US has roughly ten times our population, our debt is WELL less than half of theirs.

While I'd agree that we need to shrink our indebtedness, we're actually in considerably better condition than our southern cousins.

math solves it' self,
just like budgets!
