Ontario petition against HST



Hey guys - the price of coffee, newspapers, gasoline, home heating oil etc. is about to go up by 7% because of this HST stuff. They are combining GST and PST & now we will pay PST on things that once were taxed only GST.
Here is the petition: http://www.daltonsalestax.com/Petition.aspx

FYI, PST is currently 8%, so the taxes are actually going up by 8% on now-PST exempt items.

It'll make it easier for the gov't to administer, but I think it's gonna suck for individuals (esp. gas prices)

My bad. I stand corrected. PST is 8%. HST will be 13% because GST is 5%.

Im brought to a quote from the book Atlas Shrugged by Ayn Rand.

Now I dont have it Verbatim, nor am I going to go sift through the book to find said quote but more or less here it what it has to say:

"[we're not afraid of the intellectuals... oh no the intellects are the least of our worries, theyll bitch and moan, but they wont do anything about the new laws. Its the hard working blue collared worker who might wake up one day and say "wtf is going on here, time to make a stand" those are the ones we gotta look for.]"

Whats it trying to say? All of us here, making these stupid petitions on the internets, signing letters, that dont mean shit. We are the self proclaimed intellects, we bitch and moan and do nothing about it, while we get walked all over, new laws coming up daily taking away more of our rights and freedoms, and we literally sit back and just take it. You want to have a voice? organize a protest.

my dream is to ambush miller and danton. Take both of them hostage and hold them at gunpoint, deprive them of food and water for a few weeks, and make them give fellatio to one another non stop for a while.

by then they will be so mentally scarred they would never run for office again and Ontario & Toronto would be safe.
