What Do Canadians Want ?

Posted on Wednesday, December 03 at 02:54 by Jim Callaghan
American values don't take anything but corporate bottom line into the equation. That is totally unacceptable in what I consider a socialist/democratic country. Outright uncontrolled Capitalism is detrimental to every society. It keeps the poor, very poor. It lines the pockets of the wealthy. The wealthy don't like to share. There will come a day when the wealthy would wish that they had not hoarded the money they have, and they will lose big time. Imagine a person who has never worked a day in their life, having to work serving tables or typing letters, answering to an employer who, perchance, used to work for them. I delight in this picture. I have said before, I DETEST the Idle Rich. Bring on an Inheritance tax, of perhaps 50%. That will take the money away from stupidity. I have to qualify this by saying that this money must be directed to social programs only. That is the only way the Politicians should be able to use this extra money. Remember, the best countries in the world that have the lowest poverty rate are the countries that have the highest tax rate. Somehow, that makes sence. The Global community, and especially the Corporations don't like this picture at all, because it cuts into their bottom line. I have said in the past, PRFT is a four letter word, and I now have another: CORP. Corporate power has brought us to the brink of insanity, and if one simply compares CEO salaries, then it is quite clear that we have to do something. Soon.
