As Canada and Ontario Votes, The Disabled Lose Yet Again.

Map picture

 

Canada is a beautiful country and a great place to live, Unless, of course, you happen to be disabled. If you’re disabled while working for a company that gives good benefits, or the civil service, you will be taken care of for the rest of your life. But, if you happen to be unemployed or working contract (or for a company with dismal benefits), be prepared to live the rest of your life in the lowest pits of hell, otherwise known as way under the poverty level.

 

It’s rather amazing that, if the First Nations peoples were forced to live on what the disabled get, they would blockade highways, railroads, waterways, communities, pipelines, ports and government agencies’ buildings and offices. The country would be brought to a standstill and they would end up getting Billions of dollars. The disabled, nadda. The Mike Harris Liberals of the 1990’s slashed disability by over 40%, and there have been no increases, or increases of 1% each year since! How in the heck are the disabled supposed to live on that? It’s beyond mean, it’s unconstitutional!

And since the 1990’s, every budget and every campaign promise neglected to even so much as mention the disabled, other than to give tax breaks, which are no good to us since we don’t have taxable income (what? on $935 a month you want us to pay taxes?).  If I were physically able to work, I could easily make 6 to 10 times that amount: but I can’t work, and so I am forced to live way below the poverty level, as set out by the same government that sets our income levels. And, if we earn or even win some money during the month, we have to give 1/2 of it to ODSP!

 

Hey! Justin Trudeau – wanna win the election” Promise the disabled that you will cease the ODSP clawback of CPP pension income and you will (WILL) win the election! Every single disabled person would vote for you, as would all of their friends, family and support group members!

 

At least give us the equivalent of the minimum wage?

 

It would be really nice to not have to decide between physiotherapy and food for once!

The Blog Factor

The new $5 million act? Make sure to vote today, just $9.99 per vote, plus surcharges and idiot charges.

1) A reality television show where four judges determine the worthiness of the bloggers who perform their posts live. However, this doesn’t work very well on television because it’s just a bunch of people writing on laptops.

Blill

 

(Bhl-IlL)

 

The original blill was about the loss of slaves, a sore point for Uncle Sam, Willie’s mother’s sister’s son, whose parents had no children that lived.

 

1)  Having the will to blog. Without the will, the blog will be as poor or poorer than the amount of hype the blogger puts into the post.

 

2)  What a hillbilly calls a blog.

Blogalyn Monroe

 

(Blah_gaH-Lynne-MiN-Row)

Not only did every man want her, but most women as well… for Marylin embodied all that sensuousness meant

 

 

1) The sex-symbol blogger who, when at the top of her sex appeal, blogged herself to death. Once married to the famous ball player, Harry Potter (well, okay, i may have made that part up!), she once infamously sang ?Happy Blog-Day” to the the president of the United Blogs of America… nun to happy was his bride…

Blog Marley

 

(BlahG-Marr-Lee)

 

Marley’s brother, Tosh, was just a good as a howler, but he was as good as gold…

 

 

1)  The Jamaican rasta-blogger known for his hit songs “Every blog’s gonna be alright” and “No blogger, no cry”.

 

2) a large, dysfunctionally-lovable yellow lab know for making buddies through the worse possible action.

Bloggintology

 

(Blah-Gehn-Tall-Ah-Gee)

One of the possible locations of Tom Cruise’s next life within the church of Bloggentology

 

 

1)  The pseudo-religious sect group, founded by L. Ron Blogghard, that believes that, if you give a major percentage of your income to the sect, you will earn life after death in some form, possibly on another planet or in another plane, if you give them enough money. Sorely, there are no bloggers in Bloggitology as they can’t afford to save their souls or to purchase life after death,
