Canadian Media Failing: Canadians Socialism does not work

Our media, and opposition are no longer interested in talking about the economy. They are much more interested in talking about an ex-MP who did not win any contracts but may have had unfair access to lobby. They also like to talk about the treatment of prisoners in Afghanistan. Priorities are a strange thing for some political parties.

It has been a year since our media spent all their energy reporting on every aspect of the American President and his visit to Ottawa.

Has our press T.M.Z. talking heads dropped the ball in providing important relevant information to Canadians? Are Canadians too consumed with the Canadian media to replicate the American news coverage of Bubble Boy, Tiger Woods and Kate's Dancing with the Stars to be concerned about the financial status of Canada in relation to our Global trading partners?

Has the media reported how the estimated oil spill of between 1,000 - 5,000 barrels of oil for months will impact Canadians? (One of the worst environmental disasters in history Exxon Valdez spilled 250,000 barrels).

Has the media reported how the financial collapse in Greece and potential other socialist government is affecting the European Union and potential trade deals. Photos of riots are wonderful, not sure how they help explain the termination of jobs and social benefits. Does Mary Poppins explains things better than our media?
"Parliament and the government of Canada are committed to the principle of making equalization payments to ensure that provincial governments have sufficient revenues to provide reasonably comparable levels of public services at reasonably comparable levels of taxation."  (Subsection 36(2) of the Constitution Act, 1982) -Government Website
Has the media explained how the equalization program works in Canada and how similar programs are delivered in other countries? Are you aware in 2010-2011 $ 14.4 Billion will be transferred in equalization funds to six provinces?

A more detailed explanation into what this program is available at Mapleleafweb here.

I have already raised the questions regarding equalization here, here and here.

Below is a table from a Political perspective included are my own seat projections. Crystal Ball available here.

The chess pieces have been moving for months and a speakers ruling will become a confidence motion unless the opposition parties back down from their reckless and repeated allegations.

Do the coalition parties in alliance with our Quebec separatists of November 2008 want to risk, ask the voters if their efforts on providing improved housing condition for Omar Khadr, Taliban prisoners is a worthwhile effort?

A rational person would not think so, so the logical step is to watch the strategists from the dysfunctional coalition retreat from a visit to the Polls with some wonderful spin.

As a partisan Conservative blogger I would gladly invite a trip to the Polls to retire the deadwood in the people's house. For Ontario and Alberta this program has not been a winner. Is it time to fix it, here is a Report from an expert Panel here.

I included two videos from history for perspective, the socialists are talking about the same transfer of the wealth, redistribution of the wealth failed theories. Nothing has changed for them.

Has Quebec become more or less dependent on equalization payments for their standard of living and socialist policies?

Just like productive Germany is going to bailout socialist Greece, Alberta continues to bailout Quebec and the Atlantic provinces, and how do they reward us for giving them our hard earned money? They vote for socialist parties like the NDP/Liberals/Bloc, because they see it as a way to continue to milk the west while appearing to be superior and looking down their noses at us rednecks.

The US rebuilt Germany after WWII and the Germans have chosen to not elect a socialist government that would not collect taxes or bankrupt it state.

It is time for Albertans to spend money on TV ads how much they contribute per capita and what the result of attacking their golden goose.

China lack of impediments, size and speed to catch up will continue to move it ahead of the US in growth our resources as the U.S stalls.

Feeding the 307 Mil. Americans vs 1.3 Bil. Chinese.

The next century belongs to Canadians if we can't stop the socialists "entitlements" in their tracks.
