Since the useless, overpaid fucks that we elected a few weeks ago have managed to shit the national bed from every angle, direction and altitude it seems the only recourse they have found to their own stupidity is six weeks of recess. As a non-partisan crank, I exclude none of the Members of the House from my anger. There are 308 jerk offs collecting pay for doing nothing. Seems like a pretty fine gig, if you can get it. But since we are facing what appears to be an unprecedented economic crisis globally as well as here at home, it hardly seems reasonable that these pampered fools continue to collect their pay for their collective failure to attend to the nation's business. That is money that could be better spent elsewhere, there are some 70,000 more Canadians in need this month than there were a month ago.
Here's how it breaks down, we pay each of these bastards a base salary of $69,564 per year, they get $12,000 a year to help defray housing expenses in Ottawa and they also receive a base allowance of $22,950 for expenses. With a little division and addition we learn that over the period of prorogation each and every member is going to receive wages of $8,695, housing expenses of $1,500 and allowance totalling $2,868.75 for a total of $13,063.75 each. This figure doesn't include any of the wage scale jumps for positions of Prime Minister, Cabinet Minister, Party Leader, Leader of Opposition, Parliamentary Secretary, Secretary of State or Speaker of the House. So, without factoring in the rest of the gravy spilt, these useless fools are syphoning no less than $4,023,635 out of the public purse. For doing nothing and lots of it.
As a leftie, I am all in favour of equal pay for equal work but as I was raised to appreciate the work ethic and since I understand the value of a dollar, having too few of my own to take them for granted, it galls me to help pay these men and women their generous compensations. No work, no pay. That's how it plays down here on the streets. You want to play silly buggers with the fate of the nation, fuck you. Fuck all 308 of you. As far as I'm concerned, Parliament is on strike and we as management are under no obligation to pay you.
No pay for no work.
