How Canada Spends Taxpayers Money - LOL

Apparently the Department of Canadian Heritage needs to do a better job with due diligence before doling out money to Canadian musicians and art groups.

According to the Toronto Sun, MusicAction, a non-profit organization primarily funded by the Department of Canadian Heritage, contributed more than $100,000 to a francophone artist who produced a rap video glorifying the Taliban and applauding the slaughter of Canadian soldiers in Afghanistan.

No surprise there.

The Canadian government routinely uses public resources against citizens in support of the globalist agenda which encourages hate and chaos. They do prefer secrecy to publicity though.

The latest project is to build far more prisons and make many more crimes subject to minimum sentences of incarceration. Lets put more Canadians in jail.

The GMO agenda is also a big one. Lets poison the public.
For example GMO labelling is illegal even though over 95% of Canadians polled want it. My farming community just outlawed the selling of GMO seeds here, but we can't stop anyone from growing GMO crops because that is federal jurisdiction. To date, the farmers are all non GMO. They are happy to chat about it even if they can't label their product.

though it be madness, there be method in it...

In the US, the fund allocation would be denied, then there would be protests claiming their rights are being violated, ensuing property damage & police overtime. By just handing over the $100,000 without question when requested, the Canadians just saved themselves $3.7 million in fuss - not counting the lawsuits.

Good point

Lawyers would be making lots of money on both sides.

America I think has the most lawyers per capita in the world.

Oooops!

Oooops!

Taxation is Theft

The act of theft committed to fund this, is more offensive than any content that could be produced by the musician.

You have

stated on here before that "the city" (aka Canadian taxpayers) "pays 85 dollars a day for your food and lodging."

So aren't you basically taking part in that theft?

Why would you care what the Canadian taxpayers do with their money?

Why do you snipe at a liberty activist?

Is his personal lifestyle your business? Do you have no inconsistencies in your life? It's not as if any one of us lived in liberty without a ream of government blockades and stifling regulations as well as taxes. If someone must use handouts, that is a misfortune and we can encourage seeking independence. It is of zero value to sneer and pretend moral superiority.

"Is his personal lifestyle your business?"

When he posts EVERY aspect of his "personal life" for the last 4 plus years, he makes it EVERYONE'S business.

You have been a long time enabler of his self destructive behavior, so I wouldn't expect you to make any sense of that.

I WORK for a living, from a wheelchair. That doesn't make me morally superior, it make me a producer instead of a taker.

When the OP brags about "walking 5 miles in a day" but then takes advantage of the welfare system when he is able bodied, then I consider that theft. And yes, I'm not a thief. So I guess that does make me a bit more superior on the moral scale.

Leave him alone.

Why don't you install a wheel chair ramp in your ivory tower and come down from it.

Stop using government roads, sidewalks, and utilities, and then you can start throwing stones at others.

He hasn't done anything to you, leave him alone.

He's right about you wasting your energy, save your indignation for the real enemy.

You deserve great credit for not being

stymied by physical disability. And I honor the excellent work you do for liberty. But you know each of us must find his/her own path, and encouragement of virtue does more good, IMO, than condemning anyone's stumble along the way. I don't think I encourage or enable self-destructiveness when I appreciate good works, by LL or anyone, rather than demanding demonstrated "purity." Few of us achieve that.

Your way includes working for income and paying taxes; that is honorable, but so it is honorable for those of us who do not work for money and accept a lower standard of living in order to not pay taxes to the war machine. In this election cycle particularly, if an activist is devoting most of his/her time as an unpaid volunteer spreading the ideas of liberty and peace, that too is good work IMO.

For 5 years

If you only took 10% of your activism directed against me and used it to spread the message of Liberty I think we would have many more thousands of Ron Paul supporters out there.

I respect you.
I have no respect for your hate.

Matter of fact I did not file an income tax for the last 10 years - and I'm eligible for about 3,000$ in tax refunds (GST HST...)
I refuse to file based on the illegal war Canada does in Afghanistan.

Dr. Ron Paul talks about 'Malinvestment' -- your work is a perfect example of that.

Don't

flatter yourself. I don't "hate" you, I just know you're FOS.

Secondly, I don't need your "respect." I earn respect through my daily lifestyle, and example.

Thirdly, if you think sitting in the park slurping beer all day, and then coming back here and twiddling your tweeter, talking about how great you are and how you put the DP on the map, and passing along some youtube songs is "activism" then there is no point wasting any more time.

You're delusional, and that is putting it mildly.

Twitter...

I influence.
Over 10K tweets.
I refuse to be lazy like so many are.

Apathy will never be my second name.

I wish you got back to who you were in the past - makes me wonder why you changed your DP nick from Paulinator to Jefferson.
Tell the truth.
