Guelph NDP on "Green Shift"

LOL... this could perhaps be the BEST description of the Liberals "Green Shift" carbon tax that I've ever heard!!!

From Guelph NDP candidate Tom King, who's known for his colourful stories and analogy's...
[on the "Green Shift"] "So it's sort of like passing money from your left pocket to your right pocket, but I know enough about Ottawa and Ottawa's digestive track to know that if you pass money through it, it doesn't come out the same as it went in," Mr. King said.

"It's like a man who has a horse and feeds hay to the horse and stands under the back end of the horse hoping to get the same amount of hay out that he put in, and it just doesn't happen. So revenue neutral, in terms of Ottawa, is a myth."
I'm no NDP fan, but this guy's got the Liberals "Green Shift" defined to a "T"!!! With the Liberal's "Green Shift", you throw money in, but it sure doesn't look the same when it comes back out!

    Sorry "Bubba", had to moderate your comment due to language.

    Here's part of his comment anyway...

    "I am no N D P fan either, but Mr. King has got it just right. An insane solution to an imaginary problem.

    cheers Bubba"

    Hey you're absolutely right, we should all vote for Tom King.

    Oh and why am I not surprised that someone named Bubba would think that global warming is imaginary.

    should be
    Hey annony..I'm not surprised either!

    Its not that global warming itself is not believed...
    But the man-made part is most definatly a MYTH.

    Hey anonymous.. I would honestly be interested in your explanation of how global warming is "real".

    I have yet to see anyone, including the United Nations, specifically respond to the recent growth of scientific material suggesting that, in fact, it is imaginary . Including evidence that carbon levels "follow" increased temperatures, not lead to same. Including evidence that the initial proponents either intentionally failed to apply or negligently failed to apply data of past climate change. Including findings that the source of much of our "knowledge", "An Inconvenient Truth" has been established absolutely to include significant false and misleading information to establish its premise. Explain how CO2, being such an insignificant part of our atmosphere is somehow creating significant temperature change?

    Point out the peer-reviewed scientific data that establish global warming as a reality as opposed to a "theory".

    I'm waiting.

    You should think about voting for Tom if you really want to get rid of a Liberal
