http://www.theglobeandmail.com/commentary/americas-flight-from-fiscal-reality/article4524658/

When the private sector is building up savings or reducing debt, money is withdrawn from active circulation in the national economy. And when payments for imports exceed those received for exports, there is another withdrawal. There is one place from where money can come to replace that withdrawn, and that is from government budget deficits. Those who think that the economic problems of the U.S. can be solved by reducing these deficits through tax increases and/or service cuts do not understand that when a country has a non-convertible, free floating currency and solvency is never an issue, government is the spender of last resort.

Larry Kazdan,
Footnote:
Bill Mitchell – billy blog

At last count there were two broad macroeconomic sectors – the government and the non-government. The non-government sector can be decomposed into the private domestic sector and the external sector. The private domestic sector can be further decomposed into households who consume and firms who invest (in productive capital).
Macroeconomics is easy – thats it! 2 broad spending sectors and then some more detail.
What do we know about these sectors in the US?
1. Households are not spending enough on consumption – and why should they given they have to reduce their unsustainable debt levels and are saving to generate buffers just in case they are next to join the unemployment queue.
2. Business firms are not spending enough on investment – and why should they given they have to reduce their unsustainable debt levels and that household spending is not pushing production levels beyond existing capacity (by a long margin).
3. The external sector is deteriorating – that is, spending is contracting because the Europeans and the Brits are killing growth in their economies.
Another advance warning Saturday Quiz question: How many more spending sectors are left in the US?
The most basic macroeconomic rule – spending equals income. When someone spends another gains income. When a sector increases spending, other sectors enjoy the rise in income.
So if all these non-government sector spenders are being cautious and the private domestic sector is attempting to save overall – and – the world economy is not going to drive US exports very hard – where is the deficit spending going to come from to drive growth?
There is only one source – government budget deficits.

A Kitchener-Waterloo note

If this had been known:

Elizabeth Witmer put an end to speculation about why she stepped down as MPP after 22 years. She said her decision had nothing to do with politics. Her husband of 32 years has cancer.
Might the by-election result have changed? Might voters have looked on it as less of a power play by the Liberals and helped Liberals? Might it have helped the PCs hang on to the seat in a wave of sentimentality? Might this context have taken away some of the protest edge that the NDP benefited from?

Who knows. It may put some of the analysis taking place now in a different light though.

Witmer obviously didn't want to disclose this as she departed and it is indeed a private family matter. Still, you can't help but wonder about it all now that she has decided to make it public.

Historian Pierre Berton describes the cause of the ongoing rancour in the souls of some Canadians, particularly those journalists who pretend to know so much with little knowledge of our history.
Keep up your excellent reporting.

The Editor,
The Ottawa Citizen,

Re: "Everyone benefits from women's representation in politics," by Elizabeth Payne, Member of the Ottawa Citizen's editorial board, The Ottawa Citizen, September 7, 2012.

"Everyone benefits from women's representation in politics," writes The Ottawa Citizen's Elizabeth Payne and then gratuitously demeans British Columbia's Christy Clark's responsable concerns over potential calamities from oil pollution in B.C.'s pristine environment as "chippy protectionism," and Pauline Marois' respect for the culture of Canadians living in Quebec as "aggressive nationalist xenophobia."
In Marching, As to War, Canada's Turbulent Years 1899-1953, well-respected Canadian author and historian, Pierre Berton, wrote:
"The glorious days of 1914, when the entire country had been united in a common cause, when milling throngs swept through the streets of Montreal cheering the French republic and the British monarchy, when leading Quebec nationalists urged their followers to defend the Empire, when the Roman Catholic hierarchy pledged allegiance to the Union Jack and newspapers in both languages cried out that Britain's cause was just - those heady days were gone forever. Why? What happened?

"The French Canadian's bitterness, obscured by the euphoria of the early war months, arose from the conviction that they had been betrayed by their English-speaking compatriots, especially in Ontario, and by a federal government dominated by Anglophone politicians.

"It harked back to 1912, when Ontario had, in Quebec eyes, broken the deal made at Confederation that gave French Canadians control over their own education. Under Ontario's Regulation 17, adopted in 1912 and amended the following year, English became the sole language of instruction in elementary schools, Roman Catholic schools were placed under English Protestant inspectors, and French instruction was reduced to one hour a day."

A fair and reasonable person would hardly find it appropriate to characterize the distinguished Premiere of the Province of Quebec, the Hon. Pauline Marois' trying in 2012 to mitigate the damages caused by Regulation 17 over the last 100 years and to restore the fundamental rights revoked without cause by Ontario's Premier James Whitney in 1912, as "an aggressive nationalist xenophobia,"

Nonetheless, Elizabeth Payne is correct in that "Everyone benefits from women's representation in politics," particularly in British Columbia and Quebec.

re;
Iran, and things Nuclear
   As is my way, I will once again express the fear that all this posturing is a way to get the world to turn over nuclear power  to
the corporate world, WITHOUT A LEASH, ON THE CORPORATE WORLD. These Authorities, world-wide are ARMS LENGTH FROM
GOVERNING OR GOVERNANCE.

  Here is an example of one such Authority, in Britain, the Nuclear Decommissioning Authority.

  Just for the hell of it consider that  Paul Krugman's statement about how the Earth needs an alien invasion to get everyone working
to-gether, on a common cause. The corporate world is, it seems; hence;

NDA Corporate Brochure July 2010
© Nuclear Decommissioning Authority copyright 2005-2010
The early pioneering work on nuclear technology for both defence and electricity generation has left a significant legacy and, put simply, our job is to decommission and clean up these nuclear facilities and ensure that all the waste products, both radioactive and non-radioactive, are safely managed – protecting both this and future generations.
In the meantime, some of the facilities on our sites continue to form an essential part of the nation's nuclear infrastructure which means they must continue to be operated safely and effectively until they have fulfilled their purpose.

Our top priorities in delivering this mission are safety, security, environmental responsibility and providing value for taxpayers' money.
Our work programme is moving at speed and we have made significant early achievements, including progress on reducing the risks around our most hazardous sites. In our first five years we have stayed within budget, generated over £7 billion in commercial income for the taxpayer and made efficiency gains worth hundreds of millions of pounds.
We have helped set up a new National Skills Academy for Nuclear to guarantee the future capability of the industry, created apprenticeship and graduate roles across the estate, and worked hard to support the sustainability of the communities around our sites.

The NDA reports to the UK Government through the Department for Energy and Climate Change and, for some aspects of our mission, we are also responsible to Scottish Ministers.

Why we were created
The UK's civil nuclear power programme grew out of the the post-war military imperative of producing plutonium for nuclear weapons. From 1946 the UK embarked on a major nuclear programme that saw the construction of nuclear research and development sites across the UK, with the construction of 26 reactors between 1953 and 1971. Nuclear reprocessing facilities were also built to deal with the increasing demand from both military and civil programmes. One of the problems of this legacy, in contrast to modern nuclear plants, is the limited information available. For example, in some of the older facilities, detailed inventories of waste do not exist and there is a lack of reliable design drawings. Some of the technical issues surrounding clean-up will require innovation and advances in science and technology before they can be dealt with.

Over the last 60 years a substantial part of the UK's electricity supply has come from the first generation of nuclear power stations – the Magnox fleet. These 11 stations have between them generated over 900 TWh of electricity, this is the equivalent to being able to power 5 million homes for the last 45 years. Just two of the fleet are still operating but they are reaching the end of their lives. This nuclear legacy is now a major public liability, and must be addressed in a planned and focussed manner. The NDA was established in 2005 to take on that role and in doing so assumed responsibility for the sites previously owned by British Nuclear Fuels plc (BNFL) and United Kingdom Atomic Energy Authority (UKAEA).

Subject: vision

Without being repetitious, it appears to me that our Prime Minister is more interested in foreign affairs, under
the name of opening borders for trade, to create jobs on equal terms, than the existence of HIS/OUR country.
This view keeps coming up anytime something is taking place in our Country which needs political attention.
It was ironic to hear Sun TV News using the expression “libertarians” for the left leaning in the Conservative
Party, guided by the Hon.Peter MacKay. Seeing the results of September 4th in Kebec, by which the country
is further directed, in mushroom form, to the socialistic nazi-ism, not unlike the 1930’s
                                                                          Deutschland ueber alles”.
The union support for for the PQ has become a movement beyond the reason of status requiring immediate
control rather than “talk and more talk”. Bill C-377 does not do that, it only deals with demanding an annual
financial statement, which numbers will offer more questions than answers. Taking years.
This soft touch will cost, a cost difficult to define, as it will take time to develop. Much of that funded by
the tax-payers through Ottawa, publicly or from behind closed doors. It is no longer the single question of
enforcing French under the name of bilingualism but the politics that is coming with it. By itself a cost that
is above all understanding.
 
With that. the signs in British Columbia to a NDP government, one that has indicated to see the coming of

Dear Prime Minister, please add this Dr. Paul Craig Roberts article to the many I sent you over the last few years.

Read this and compare the policy of Minister John Baird and yourself to the real Conservative thinking of Dr. Roberts, former Reagan economist.

It's clear that your government made a mistake by cutting off communication with Iran.  Or, you are owned by US and Israeli back-room war-mongers.

Research Dr. Roberts on the myth of 9/11, 2001.  The Canadian Parliament has remained silent too long.

And, Canadian Opposition parties are afraid to demand truth.

John Duddy.  Calgary Centre.

In fact, a case was tried in the 1990's in Alberta that proved how little control/democracy we think we have here exists! A Member of Parliament, Norman Littlechild, was sued by constituents for refusing to represent their wishes. The Judge (The Honourable Mr. Justice, E.A. Marshall Justice of The Court of Queen's Bench of Alberta Docket # 9012000725, 10th December, 1990) said the following: "I know of no legal duty on an elected representative at any level of government to consult with his constituents or determine their views. While such an obligation may generally be considered desirable, there is no legal requirement." So much for the value of our "votes"!

Subject: Peacemaker or Powder Monkey  DD

Joe--Canada is definitely the Powder Monkey for israel and the USI.  They bow to the genocidal maniacs while pretending to be humans.  Any country that can use bombs and call it 'humanitarion aid' has long lost it's way in a real world.  The government of Canada has shown it's true allegiance, and it is not to Canadians.   At first I stupidly thought that Canada was protecting it's ambassadors in case of attack but now realize that Harper would like nothing better than a false flag op so we could aid in the attacking of Iran.  So I really don't know why he removed our Embassy other than to play the bully and further alienate Iran from the group of israel kissers he belongs to.  He also had to make a move to make Iran look bad after they held a successful meeting with 150 countries that support Iran.  That will never do in his warmongering brain.  That Iran would prefer to discuss rather than create war is something our 'leaders' cannot comprehend.

"All pipelines intended to force tar gunk from shale sources are continuously worn away at by the rocks and grit embedded in the thick of the material that is lubricated by much water to help the stuff flow. This aggregate files grooves into the pipe metal or other material. When one section bursts and eventually that section is replaced, there are near and distant sections ready to burst quite soon as the flow and pressure is resumed."

Subject: Attn:  Mr. Mulcair/Jean Crowder

It's time for Mr. Mulcair and the NDP to cool the rhetoric of Harper and his statements concerning Iran.   If you neglect to do this, then you too can take some responsibility for what seems to be planned and will cost millions of lives.     Should Iran be bombed with just ordinary bombs, another Chernobyl will result and will cost the lives of not just people in Iran but also in Europe and eventually here in N. America from radiation.   Canada already has an epidemic of cancers....especially in children and infants from the increased levels of radiation in Canada .

It is time to stop kissing the ass of some of the Jewish Community here in Canada ....a community where many owe most of their allegiance to Zionist Israel....a criminal state in the true sense of the word....according to International Law.    This grovelling on the part of the NDP  is extremely unbecoming and cowardly as well.   http://www.globalpost.com/dispatches/globalpost-blogs/israel-breaks-un-human-rights-council-over-settlement-inquiry

Most NDP supporters are now well informed on the situation in the Middle East and it's causes.  Take this into consideration in your future comments.  Below is an excellent article as well as a host of attached articles giving the history of the U.S. and Iran over the years.  The U.S. does not look good.

Letter to the editor- Byelection losses bring Hudak's leadership into question

Until unions are broken, powers are stripped…all of this country will continue to go heavily into debt. These unions, government scum bags, thugs, bullies… are bankrupting future generations and they don't give a damn. They are beyond greedy…

I wish everybody in Ontario and Canada could get it. THESE ARE ONTARIO GOVERNMENT OFFICIAL FIGURES ( 2003- 2011 budget papers )

PROVINCIAL DEBT:
YEAR  DEBT

2003   over 138 BILLION
2004   over 140 BILLION
2005   over 152 BILLION
2006   over 153 BILLION
2007   over 162 BILLION
2008   over 176 BILLION
2009   over 212 BILLION
2010   over 219 BILLION
2011   over 236 BILLION

2017   over 323 BILLION - LIBERAL GOVERNMENT RECOVERY PLAN
2018   over 327 BILLION - LIBERAL GOVERNMENT RECOVERY PLAN *

* The annual interest rate on this debt even with the present historic low interest rates will be $18 billion dollars per year.

The same thing is happening federally as well…

This is a plan for economic disaster.

We now have over 3.7 million people working for government across the country. Average salary in government is 70 thousand (including benefits, pension, bonuses...) yearly and rising. Average salary in the private sector is 45 thousand (no pension, bonuses, perks…) yearly and dropping. Over 10% of government employees now make over 100 thousand yearly. In the private sector the number is under 2%. Look to Greece, Ireland and Quebec (all technically bankrupt), this is where Ontario, and Canada is headed if we don't stop equalization and get spending and government growth under control. This tax and spend, pro union scum -  socialist, big government, social engineering that has been destroying this country has got to stop. Yes, it has left Quebec and has been spreading throughout the rest of the country since the 1960"s, that's right over 5 decades of massive government growth, massive government hiring, higher taxes, skyrocketing government salaries, social engineering ( the expensive forced phony charter, bilingualism, multiculturalism…) and more and more debt. Thanks Trudeau, Tanks kebec (original native spelling). Don't believe me; go check the stats for yourself.

"We don't want the party to end, the "free" trips, expense accounts…perks, gold plated pensions, free this, free that…Yes indeed, see we in government, are all entitled to our entitlements folks and we can't stop that, at least not until we retire. Our unions say so, it's ours and we want it now...$$"  Nice eh?  See what working for government has become? Go look at all the debt mounting. Governments all across Canada have been on a hiring binge for decades. Government = police, fire, hospitals, teachers…high salaries, bonuses, pensions, perks… have been out of control for decades now = More and more debt…making the connection yet?

Now what will the so called "Conservatives" do about this?

We know that the liberals and ndp will continue to grow government, increase debt…destroy future generations but the so-called "Conservatives'" will do just about the same. During elections, all they do is try to out promise, out spend the other parties…just sickening!

Remember-The liberals, NDP brought in a lot of this expensive nonsense, bilingualism ( code for forced french, only outside Quebec while Kebec bans our language and history, bills 22, 178, 101…), multiculturalism, the charter, phony rights this, rights that, phony green crap…but the Conservatives have done nothing to repeal any of this crap federally or provincially.

"Conservatives" have allowed all of these expensive, divisive liberal polices, and departments to remain. How come?

Don't just blame Hudak, or Harper, the party stands for nothing folks.

 Unless they come out and tell us what they will cut, how they will reduce and eliminate debt. Unless they tell us what liberal, NDP policies, departments they will cut and/or eliminate they will not get out vote any longer. I think its obvious why people are not voting any longer. They have no one to vote for. Where is the detailed platform Conservatives?

How will you reduce the size of government? What departments will you eliminate? How will you bring down hydro rates? Will you get rid of this phony expensive green nonsense? What non-essential waste will you cut? Will you bring in a government hiring freeze? Will you reduce bloated government salaries, pensions, bonuses, perks…??? A salary cap in government? Will you repeal the expensive hiring quota for frenchies in Ontario (bill 8)? The phony french first (bilingual) policy forced upon the province illegally by the liberals? How will you pay down, and pay off this massive debt in Ontario…?

Unless you say what you will cut, you can't reduce debt, you can't pay off debt. We will not vote for a party that says nothing and does nothing year after year. Will not vote for a liberal light party period. I can't believe you people haven't figured this out yet. Go look at the polling results. Smart, informed people are not voting. We want to vote, but we have no one to vote for. Sad indeed.

Try to digest this you over paid scum bag politicians, unions, government bureaucrats, executives, CEOS….Who do you think is going to pay off all this debt you are leaving your children, your grandchildren? That's what I thought, you don't care! You greedy scum bags..

Solution? Well only one folks - We need a new party, a new leader willing to deal with the facts, the truth for a change. We need a real fiscally conservative, common sense leader/party…. Things need to be cut, reduced and eliminated in all government. Government is too big, intrusive, and they are accumulating too much debt, year after year after year. That's right lets get cutting non essential services, expensive waste , bilingualism, multiculturalism, phony rights departments…the charter, CBC, all this green nonsense, all sorts of big government BS. The future is at stake here and no one is willing to deal with this, how sad, how pathetic, all of you clowns in government and mainstream media.
