Wealth tax coming to Canada

In the form of US sized property taxes. As the middle class evaporates, the gap between haves and have nots widens. If you have, and won’t give, they will take. Another bit of globalism fall out.

These days the Dipper government is 100% on the side of the have-nots, wannabes, envious and angry. After all, this is politics. There are way more votes on one side of the ledger than the other. Odds are overwhelming the extra property tax that people living in $3 and $4 million properties now face ($2,000 more a year) will stay. The protest that surrounded Sunday’s event is a lost cause. This is class warfare – the first inklings of a progressive wealth tax in Canada, based on real estate.

Mayor John Tory’s despicable attack ad

I know all is fair in love and politics, but most who think highly of the current (psyop lying mayor, who only got in because former mayor Ford hoax died for him to win) don’t remember or even know about his disgusting attack ad against former Prime Minister Chretien.

Patrick Brown couldn’t win – and he was ousted

..with lies. I don’t like/dislike the man, but US-style dirty tricks knocked him out. I hope he sues whoever and wins, and throws a monkey wrench into the leadership race.

Patrick Brown says he was on an indoor tennis court when an assistant told him his team needed to see him, immediately. Hours later, he was no longer the leader of the Ontario Progressive Conservatives, brought down by allegations of sexual misconduct that he denies.

How the money corruption in DC works

Lobbyists are at the heart of the system. Therefore they cannot be cut out.

For anyone who has ever heard the term “Washington insider” and felt outside — we are with you. So this week, we go inside the rooms where the deals get made, to the actual moment that the checks change hands — and we ask the people writing and receiving the checks what, exactly, is the money buying?

Trump gets A+ for persuasion

Are the Fake News Awards Persuasive?

I’m no historian, but I doubt any prior president has combined theater and politics so ambitiously and so effectively. President Trump is intentionally and deftly “bringing the show” on this topic and lots of others. If you don’t understand persuasion, you might think he is just being crazy or narcissistic or authoritarian or some other misdiagnosis. But if you know that attention and memory are the primary levers of persuasion, and you see how often he commands both, you might recognize that you are seeing something special here in terms of a talent stack. (A talent stack is a combination of skills that are designed to work well together, such as the collective sub-talents for persuasion, theater, and politics.)
