Dithers' $12 Billion Surplus

According to a briefing paper, my predecessor is going around flogging a manuscript on why he was so beloved as finance minister, and why we ruined HIS $12 billion surplus.

Well my friends, it wasn't his anyway. It belonged to the Canadian people, and we gave it back.

In the classic words of Dear Leader Obama, it's "redistributive change*." Except we in the Reality Party of Canada reversed the process, in two neat GST slices. Geddit people?

I see too that M. Paulie, "one of the most successful finance ministers Canada has ever had,"™ is now chairing a project to preserve the Congo River basin. A real Humprey Bogart is our ex! Here he is on one of his latest expeditions, where he teamed up with Katherine Hepburn in dragging an old CSL barge up the Heart of Darkness, looking for treasure.

The legend just keeps on growing.
*higher taxes = more pork for our friends. As US Chief Justice John Marshall once said: “The power to tax is the power to destroy.”
