Can’t make this up: tax ‘n spend NDP MPs caught not paying their own FAIR SHARE of taxes.

Hypocritical much?
MONTREAL — The NDP has suspended a member from its shadow cabinet because of his chronic, long-term failure to pay taxes.

Tyrone Benskin has been stripped of his role as official-languages critic until he pays the taxes he owes.

The announcement follows a report that Quebec’s revenue agency has contacted the House of Commons to seize part of his salary because of more than $58,000 he owes the province for unpaid taxes between 2007 and 2011. …

Well at least they suspended him. But yes, it’s hypocritical much. It’s a veritable hypocritical sandwich, on a stick, a la mode, au gratin (he’s from The Nation Of Quebec). Or it at least it could be. The trouble is, the way the CTV news tells it (and the NDP’s CBC news division), it’s served-up as a sort of a tiny vegetarian sandwich-ette.

Tyron Benskin - NDP Tax Non-Payer

MP Tyron Benskin – An NDP-er who failed to pay his own “fair share”.

The fact that CTV and others have dared to reveal just one tiny story about the truth with regard to one of their fellow progressives, at all, amazes me. But their stories are all like a sandwich with the crusts cut off and lacking the juicy red meat sitting right there on the counter, uncovered.

They should have (and I’m damn sure they would have if he were a conservative) made a much, much bigger sandwich. If he were a conservative, they’d have made a club sandwich with which to literally club all conservatives over the head. For this one, for the filling, they could have at least threw in a slice of the fact that Tyrone Benskin (an actor, so probably already a huge beneficiary of copious tax relief — hello!), who failed to pay his “fair share” of taxes (hello?), recently tried but failed to introduce a tax-related bill in parliament which would be totally self-serving with regard to his own tax-paying problem, namely a private member’s bill, C-427 (here’s a PDF: Bill C-427: Income Averaging for Artists). That new tax law for all Canadians would have helped him personally. With his tax problems. Hello? Is this thing on?

That’s some red meat right there.

Additionally, as it turns out, Benskin isn’t the only NDP MP allegedly caught allegedly not paying their fair share of taxes, at least not when they were due to be paid. (Yeah, lots of “allegedly” sauce. I’m not going to give them any red meat to sue me with, here).

In a story which even further exemplifies the even more crass and strident hypocrisy of socialists and progressives generally and the NDP specifically, another tax and spend NDP MP has, according to a report by Sun News, allegedly been caught not paying his own FAIR SHARE OF TAXES. This one, Hoang Mai, is known (by at least one person in the NDP, I guess) for his active campaign to  —  get this  —  fight tax evasion.

Seriously. Well now it’s a sandwich buffet.

He built a whole campaign and continues to fight this overtly populist (particularly among the progressive left and far-left) campaign to fight those tax evaders (you know  —  the “1%”) who all hide their money in those scarey “tax havens.” But hey who knew Canada and credit unions in Canada were also tax havens? Well I guess the NDP knew!

Here’s a page from the web site, dated April 24, 2012. I screen-grabbed it because I can’t imagine the NDP not deleting that page, just to avoid the shear irony of the situation.


As you can see, so compelling is Mai’s campaign that the whole NDP is behind it. They call it the “NDP proposal” in the sub-head of the article at I wonder if the NDP are really behind their own li’l 1% club when they  —  just like the much-hated, income-paying “rich”-folk  —  don’t pay their own “fair share” of taxes in a timely manner. Well I bet they are, actually. Because in private, they’ll eat anything that tastes yummy, even if it contains trans fats and salt.

The story about Mai piqued Sun News’ attention when they found that Hoang had filed, with the federal authorities, information which acknowledged his latent debt to the tax-collectors of his home province of The Nation Of Quebec.

The allegation is not that Mai is a tax evader, of course. I’m sure he’s not. I’m sure neither Hoang Mai nor Tyrone Benskin are tax evaders. The stories are about irony and hypocrisy and embarrassment. But they do serve as a good lunch for people who aren’t allergic to truth and honesty and openness and actually standing by the principles they claim to believe in.

Jimmy crack corn, and I’m Mulcair

Today the Editor-at-Large of the Financial Post, Diane Francis, wrote a good editorial summary of the rather mindless socialist hypocrisy of NDP leader Thomas Mulcair, and in so doing found another good opportunity to mess with his name a little, as I did a couple weeks ago.

It’s what the unwashed plebeians like us do when we’re bored with our subject (in this case, champagne socialist “leaders” like the great Doctor Thomas Mulcair, whose doctoral certificate apparently licenses him to diagnose something called “Dutch Disease,” and pronounce that our nation is infected with it. In case you didn’t know, the Doctor’s antidote is socialism. Like I had to tell you.)

“Thomas Mulcair is neither appropriate nor smart. He is very Mul-cairless,” Francis wrote in her editorial. She laid out the reasons why, in a three-point calculus that even the Doctor could understand, if he weren’t so arrogant as to avert his eyes from the sharp diagnosis of a mere disagreeable citizen (or shall I say “subject?”).


1. On living in a mansion

Mulcair is the latest incarnation of what the British dubbed the “champagne socialist”. Stornaway is another symbol of inherited privilege, like the Monarchy, where status and perquisites are given away to the duly “crowned”.

Mulcair, if consistent with his ideology, should have declined the grand housing perq and diverted the excessive cost of his upkeep to some worthy cause.

He opted instead to live like Royalty even though he backed statements by fellow NDPer Pat Martin that the cost of Royal visits alone was sufficient to abolish the Crown as head of state. He also signed a petition to have The Queen’s portrait removed from the Foreign Affairs building a few months ago.

(To square the circle, the NDP leader cannot criticize the “cake” and eat it too. But he is.) …

The very fact that Mulcair, who aspires to take control of Canada and fundamentally transform it into a socialist state, is actually a French citizen  —  yes I mean he has a French passport  —  from France  —  is galling enough in and of itself; but especially so when you consider Francis’ rather British regal point #1, above. And sacré bleu, Francis, being named Francis, should have picked-up on that bon mot.

But Mulcair’s crass, careless hypocrisy doesn’t stop there, of course.

My own article on Thomas Mulcair (actually, he apparently calls himself “Tom” now, which may be to avoid the formal-sounding trappings of anything “elite,” or “royal,” or not a part of that NDP claptrap class-division term “working family,” even while he apparently considers himself above all that) could have provided her with one more point. But anyway, the main point is that I beat Francis to the Cair/don’t care punch, see. I wrote it up two weeks ago, and made this cool “Don’tcare” graphic, providing you, the consumer, with added value at no real cost to you (which I mention because I thought Francis might care, given her position at the Financial Post, the FP being all financial and what not):

 But anyway, if Diane Francis can call herself Editor-at-Large of Financial Post, and Thomas Mulcair is “Leader of Her Majesty’s Loyal Opposition,” I have decided to raise my stature in life too, arbitrarily, and henceforth bestow upon myself the title of Leader and Editor-at-Large of If the readers don’t like it, let them eat cake.

The socialist NDP rats hit bottom, keep digging.

This is the party that purports to be one of “caring” … and of intelligence and good ideas? What a bunch of attention-seeking alarmists Malcolm Allen, NDP meat and vegetable criticand fear-mongers. And political dumb-dumbs.

Here’s a news release just posted on their web site:

Conservative changes will allow roadkill on your table: NDP

May 15, 2012

OTTAWA – Proposed changes to Meat Inspection Regulations (MIR) will leave Canadians wondering if the meat they buy is actually safe, because of the Conservatives’ reckless cutting spree.  Private inspectors, who may not be qualified, will now be able to inspect meat.  Worse, these changes to meat inspection rules also change what meat is acceptable – meaning already-dead meat and crippled animals’ meat will be okay for processing for Canadians’ tables.

“First the Conservatives will let private inspectors monitor meat, and now they’re essentially allowing road kill-ready meat into the food supply,” said Malcolm Allen, NDP Critic for Agriculture and Agri-Food. “Even scarier is the fact that we won’t know how long animals have been dead before processing – or even that the meat will be inspected at all.”

I wonder if they feel “private” car manufacturing workers, home builders, food service workers, pharmaceutical and medical workers, and all other workers are also inherently inept (or shall I say “may not be qualified”?) on account of them not being state employees at a state-owned facility and members of one of Canada’s far-left political public service labor unions. Because apparently only state workers are acceptable to the NDP.

Anyway, Sun Media’s report about it used the word “overkill” in their report, earning it a mention here:

Expect roadkill to reach dinner table: NDP

By Mark Dunn, QMI Agency

OTTAWA – The NDP ratcheted up its overkill on government cuts Tuesday, suggesting changes to meat inspection mean Canadians can expect splattered squirrel, groundhogs and other crunched critters for dinner.

“First the Conservatives will let private inspectors monitor meat, and now they’re essentially allowing roadkill ready meat into the food supply,” said Malcolm Allen, the party’s meat and vegetable critic.

The NDP is concerned about what happens to animals on farms before the carcass is shipped to a federally inspected slaughter house. …

… “Only the NDP would stoop so low as to mislead Canadian families with hopes of gaining media attention,” [Agriculture Minister Gerry ] Ritz said.

People who put out this sort of lie  —  this tactic which is nefariously designed by jerks in the backroom (and then approved by its leader) to do nothing but scare the crap out of people in order to gain power  —  should be summarily ignored and treated by Canadians as, well, roadkill. These people show nothing but an utter contempt for the very people they purport to “care” about. They treat them Canadians as stupid. Naive. Gullible. Idiots. They treat us as roadkill on their precious highway to power.

Strident? Maybe, but I think these power-hungry jerks politicians who will do or say anything  —  including lying and fear-mongering and anything else at any cost to simply win political power… have by default relinquished their moral authority to ever win seats in elections. And to be taken seriously by anyone, including their enablers in the Canadian news media, who are ultimately responsible for anyone in this country even knowing who the hell the NDP are in the first place.

And I have even less respect for all these people than I did before. As you should.

And what’s with the folksy name-change for the NDP leader, socialist Frenchman Thomas Mulcair? It’s “Tom” now, is it? If the above is what you think of Canada’s citizens  —  that is, gullible, naive, idiots  —  I think your last name should be Tom Don’tcare. “Fighting for you” my butt roast.
