(not) Premier Photo Op Has Become (not) Premier Ho Hum

     Fishing is  little slow right now, so I came in early to listen to the great news station do their pimping for the government. I took my time and didn't get back till it was over so I went to the vault.

     What I heard made me glad that I stayed on the ice longer. What I heard gave rise to the title for this piece. The (not) I believe was first coined by The Gazetteer, Ross K. Correct me if I'm wrong Ross K.

     Ho Hum is a understatement for the drivel I listened to this morning. But primary to my thoughts while listening was how The Great Ones Blatantly pimped for the liberals in that they ran the full add that the government spin doctors brought out against Dix. It was so obvious what they were doing that I actually choked on  my coffee.

     All of the first half hour was taken up by slagging the NDP and claiming the Libs had their own polls that said differently from what we now know.Then there was some more Ho Hum.

     Bring up the HST. Ho Hum laid the whole mess on the Feds. While I believe the Federal government is PART of the problem  there is no way they are all of the problem. And if you believe that Ho Hum wants the tax gone in a week then I have a new Port Mann (don't ever name it after Campbell) Bridge to sell you.

      There was a discussion about home owners not buying and She believes that as they get closer to resolving the HST issue people will have a sense as to where they are going.

     I'll tell you where they are going. When the HST was brought in this government added taxes to things that should never be taxed. Especially Perishable foods in restaurants. So now this government is trying to figure out how to keep those taxes so that we are still screwed. They still think we are bent over. The referendum SPECIFICALLY asked if we wanted to return to the way it was. They have no mandate to change it. They can only put it back the way it was in June 2009. So I don't want to here anymore god damn  rhetoric on how complicated it is. It's very simple. Return the old tax structure, and the employees and have done with it.

     Then, somehow Wannabee Bill started asking why we can't toll more bridges and the Sea to Sky. Our friend Laila Yuile will be bristling at that. After an extensive investigation she broke the story about SHADOW TOLLS ON THE SEA TO SKY. Which the MSM has conveniently hidden or glossed over since Laila broke the story. And Premier Ho Hum feigns shock and asks the tall one. If he would want tolls on the Sea to Sky. That question and answer had to be scripted. Period

I finally got fed up after  a caller asked her to give her thoughts on Enbridge which fence she appears to be straddling  Ho Hum came up with the statement to the effect that she believes in the Environmental Review Process.. OH Really. Then if that is the case then please tell us where you hid the Rubber Stamp for the Prosperity Mine. Friends have told me that the government didn't even look at their own reports on this mine.

     In summary, today was as much of a waste of time as Campbells phoney address before he finally left.

Have tried to bring up the fact this government dictates but no negotiation . They are bullies, managers have done very well under the 0 mandate. MLA's get their 3% raise on April 1 every year. double standard yes . Pitifully Sean Lesley and Simi Sara would not bring it up.

Anon 3:06 I came to the conclusion a long time ago that the mainstream media were pimping for the libs. That's why I started this blog. Many others have done the same. I feel the only way to get the word out is through independent online media such as Terrace Daily and through blogging.

The media and government are of the opinion that people are sheep and will follow whatever they dictate. Wrooong.

I hope you caught a fish Gary..

the non-elected premier ho, hoe, hoh is a disgrace, Billy too..

That`s twice now that Billy played the Risky Dix ad for free...Cutting edge of the ledge show and today..

Although the cutting edge of the ledge as of late has been downright boring..

That`s what happens when you keep skilled informed callers off the radio..

Good radio should be razor`s edge sharp, it should intrigue, anger and frustrate both listeners, guests and hosts..

Those days vanished on nw..

Gary..If you would like to hear what a real good call sounds like...

Cue up the cknw audio vault..

Last Saturday(February 11th, 4:00 pm to 4:30 pm), the Sean Leslie show...Sean has a new regular guest, another one of Gordon Campbell`s ex press secretaries..Mike Morton..

He took one caller...A sneaky lad named Fred, you`ll know who it is...

And there was another tricky caller on the previous Saturday 4:00 pm to 4:30 pm segment,(February 4th), again, you`ll know who it is..

Cutting edge radio, no, cutting edge callers..
