Where are the 2% and 5% increases from income assistance?

Posted By on Tue, Jun 18, 2019 at 11:12 AM

family-in-palm-of-hand.jpg
Why is the government reneging on their promises? We the people in poverty are still waiting, since 2006. You can see it every time a story hits the news about how people living on income assistance are in dire straits and going hungry. When those reporters ask questions about what is going on, the answer they get from government is always the same: "Wait until the employment support and income assistance transformation is completed." and "We will raise the rates and things will get better."

That was 13 years ago. How much suffering can a poor person endure? That response is so old, it has dinosaur crap on it. There were supposed to be increases in 2019, what happened there? Here it is six months into 2019 and nothing has been done yet! What the hell is going on? Is the government lying again? Of course it is!

When does the government ever tell the truth about people living in poverty? Instead they breed discrimination, hate and crime. They blame all people in poverty for the actions of a few. The stigma created is made up of people who have more money than you could imagine, but those are the people that never had to beg for food or spare change. Yes, there are the ones that waste their funding on drugs and alcohol, but let's be real here: Not every person living in poverty is an addict or alcoholic. Some people feel like this is their tax money being wasted, but that is not the truth. We pay HST, property tax and other taxes that most of the population of Canada pays. That should be enough to say to the working class, because they are the ones who discriminate the most!

Who in our present government is helping? People in poverty should not vote in any election, because we do not reap the benefits and most of what we do need is non-existent, so why should we vote if we don't matter? I urge the people in poverty not to vote and let's just see what happens. Let's really find out if we can get the help that every human being in Canada is entitled to.

The people of Canada care more about helping other countries, but when it comes to helping their own people,they complain that we are no-good people who just want to sponge off the government. What is wrong with this picture? Help other countries but not your own?! Shame on the government, shame on the filthy rich who hold most of Canada's wealth and shame, shame, shame on the people of this province. I hope no of you ever have to live this way.

"Security" guy in company car needs to learn to obey traffic laws

Posted By on Mon, Nov 26, 2018 at 12:32 PM

The Nova Scotia Advocate reported "eight pedestrians hit in a 24-hour period" yesterday and I am shaking my head as a pedestrian at the complete disregard for my well being tonight.
You, a male driver, in a company security vehicle turning on to Gottingen Street from the MacDonald Bridge close to midnight, did NOT stop for the clearly marked and lit-up crosswalk sign and me, waiting to cautiously cross.

And you know why right? You were on your cell phone, not paying attention, asshole. I'll assume the next car behind ya didn't give a damn either but I will give thanks to the third car that stopped to let me cross like a decent human being. I am so tired of drivers not obeying traffic signals, as this is a regular occurrence EVERY DAY. What does it take, police patrol at every intersection? Heavy fines? Suspended Licence? Jail time?

One hundred ringy dingy

Posted By on Thu, May 31, 2018 at 11:09 AM

Internet and landline went down. I don't own a cell phone. Went to the pay phone several blocks away to call my ISP.  Nobody would answer 411. It rang and rang for a half hour straight!  What has the world come to? I dialed zero for information, the bitch ass operator was so rude to me, told me they couldn't look up the number and hung up in my ear.  Called 411 several more times before I gave up and went home. Luckily, my internet and phone were back up and running when I got home. Why are basic services like 411 not working?  Why isn't there an operator to answer? What is going on with the world?  This is bullshit.  I felt like I was on another planet without any access to the outside world.  I hate cell phones, they cause tumours and hunchbacks. Stop making me succumb to technology I want no part of. Operators need to answer the damn phone and help people.  What if this were a time of crisis. This is unacceptable, atrocious and egregious. They should be fired, all of them, and find some that will actually answer. —Just Pure Bullshit

Fuck FedEx

Posted By on Tue, Feb 27, 2018 at 4:35 PM

The majority of people agree that gun culture in the US is insane, and it seems a change may finally be underway. However, one company has officially refused to stop delivering special benefits into the bloody hands of NRA members: FedEx. But even if you don't care about guns, maybe you care about endangered species, the ocean, or cruelty. Shark finning involves cutting off a shark's fin and letting them suffocate to death and the practice is destroying numerous species and disrupting fragile ecosystems. The largest importer of shark fins outside of Asia? Canada. And a major shipping firm that refuses to stop transporting them? FedEx. Stick with Canada Post or UPS, who has agreed to a ban.

Family Court fiasco

Posted By on Mon, Jul 10, 2017 at 9:34 AM

How many years and how much money do you have to have to get a divorce in Halifax? I am sure I have gone to court 15 times and still the lawyers in this city have not sucked enough money out of me yet? My lawyer looks at me and says “you won't have much left when this is over.” Really you scam artist! I don't have anything left now, you have taken my retirement money and my kids education already. I am bankrupt now and you have left me with nothing and you call yourself the Justice Department? Wow, what a disgrace! Sickening! A class action law suit against the province of NS for your negligence is on its way. Someone has to put a stop to this. Stealing from single mothers and their children should be against the law. How do you sleep at night? —I have had enough of you clowns in capes!

Jerks in my neighbourhood

Posted By on Thu, Jun 22, 2017 at 9:44 AM

Just woke up to what I thought were gun shots at 3am.  I dare to peek out my window, to see the lamest fireworks shooting up into the sky beside Kings Wharf.  What kind of inconsiderate ASSHOLE needs to shoot off fireworks at 3 o'clock in the GOD DAMN MORNING!? I wish to God you would get your asses arrested for disturbing the peace.  I fucking curse the ground you walk on.  Someone should stick a fucking firework up your arse and set it off!—I hate you

Drivers turning right on RED

Posted By on Thu, Jun 15, 2017 at 4:14 PM

Drivers of HRM. STOP trying to cheat the RED lights when I'm waiting for the walk signal.  When ALL four lights are red I find that if I wait the 2-3 seconds for the walk signal drivers waiting to turn Right become impatient or think I'm letting them go, so when I step of they begin to turn. Conversely when I try an avoid that and go when ALL four lights are red I'm faced with drivers who try an sneak through.  So JUST wait and give pedestrians the right of way. Two or three seconds won’t ruin your day but it will ruin ours. —Angry Crosswalk

IDIOT EMPLOYERS—I HATE YOU!

Posted By on Mon, May 15, 2017 at 10:00 AM

I'm trying to find a job and I'm finding it really annoying that every fucking place makes you sign up to their web site and basically recreate your entire fucking resume on their site.  Why can't these idiot employers just allow you to upload a resume?  I already wrote a resume and an entire cover letter specifically for you.  Quit expecting several hours of our time to deconstruct our whole resume, coping and pasting each job and course we've ever taken and each reference.  It's all on my fucking resume!  You are the type of moronic assholes I would never want to work for.  When I see this shit, I leave your site and don't bother applying to your shitty job.  You are fucking stupid!  You think people got all day for this crap?  I've done it all before and you waste hours and they don't even call you for an interview!  GFY! —You wasted my time for the last time

Y'all Fucked Up

Posted By on Fri, Apr 28, 2017 at 12:11 PM

Not only did you almost completely ruin the reputation and viability of a space that has potential to be one of the best in the city but now you've bounced cheques to at least three of your (now thankfully former) employees with no sign of reimbursement. Employees who have stood by you, held your hand and enabled you to "play cafe" for the past two years. Employees who stayed on with you for an extra two weeks so you could recoup some of your losses only to realize it was at their own expense. —Extra Salty

The fine line...

Posted on Mon, Nov 7, 2016 at 12:51 PM

yelling.jpg
Dear Hallowe'en enthusiasts, There exists a fine line between Hallowe'en spooky and absolute gore. I am not usually one to comment on others creative expression, but I have to say something this year. I appreciate that you have an enthusiasm for this holiday. I do too.. However, when you are decorating and/or planning your costumes, I really want to encourage you to think about who may see your decor unintentionally. This year my neighbour decorated their home with hanged figures from her porch. Understanding the spirit of the holiday, I chose to drive around the block rather than drive by it due to the traumatic response it gives me (due to a family member dying this way) but the first time I saw it really threw me into a bad state. Over the past week, I have observed a number of vehicles driving around with fake human limbs hanging out of their trunk... and I had to think that again, while 'tis the season, it's really not fair to anyone who has been through that reality to have to replay it. Halloween has always been about ghouls, ghosts and goblins. Add in zombies and vampires if you want - but please PLEASE leave out the realistic human gore for those of us who may unintentionally be traumatized by it. —The friendly witch next door

How do I make an issue heard by law makers?

Posted on Thu, Nov 3, 2016 at 4:00 AM

I am a sex worker. I know, boring right? We've heard the tale already, and mine doesn't have an interesting twist either, but I feel an overwhelming urge to make it a legitimate issue. I crave a way to tackle it legally rather then experiencing it as a conversational piece over drinks in a detached theological formula with people who already believe in its decriminalization. I'm so sick of speaking about it in an abstract way and always ending up with the same conclusion: “Yeah things need to change, but what can you do? It is what it is.” Someone point me in the right direction! I'm motivated, and I'm not embarrassed to put myself in front of my words. —Show Me How to be the Change I Want to See

Domestic Violence

Posted on Wed, Jun 1, 2016 at 4:00 AM

I've been the subject of ten years of Domestic Violence in the form of weapons threats, extortion, theft, sabotage and harassment, all of which has been reported to both Police and RCMP. But they refuse to take any action to protect my interests, possessions and person. Meanwhile I've not retaliated and I'm trying to keep the high ground, if there is any in such a situation. Karma where are you? So go ahead all you douchebags out there, its open season on your relatives! —High Ground but Underwater

A compromise on Cornwallis?

Posted on Thu, May 19, 2016 at 4:00 AM

Cornwallis: Built Halifax personally with his own two hands, or racist scalp-collecting maniac—depending on who you talk to. Whatever to do with the statue? Enough! Time for a compromise. Take a hacksaw, Jebediah Springfield style, and remove a few inches just above the eyebrows. Let people peer down into that dark cranial cavity, and have it serve as a reminder of the actions he took to colonize our prosperous, egalitarian city. Or make it into a birdbath. Whatever. —#fuckclosetracists

go read a book...

Posted on Thu, Aug 20, 2009 at 10:02 AM

I'm going to scream if I get one more email asking me to help "save the Canadian Networks"...For what? So I can sit in front of my tube and watch ANOTHER of these ridiculous "crime" shows?! Who watches these things anyway? Do you think you're learning something?

The "science" used on these idiotic shows is beyond belief! Do you think an electron microscope really shows an image like that? It reminds me of the view through binoculars in a Hollywood movie for heaven's sake.

One after another of these stupid American shows, every night of the week, why would I want to "save" that programming?

And the "reality" shows? There were funny at first 10 years ago, until every waitress and cab driving celebrity hopeful decided that this was a faster way to success, other than giving handjobs to second-rate agents...

I've got an idea fo a "Survival" show - put 20 Canadian network suits in a life raft in the mid-Pacific with no fresh water and lots of salty food, hmmm, maybe some beef JERKY or a cooler full of DONAIRS...and come back in a month...

And how the hell did our "national" network end up showing a bunch of money-hungry Yanks spinning a giant roulette wheel and trying to spell grade 7 words? WTF is this shite? What happened to the effin' Beachcombers for fuck sake?

Save the networks, my arse!

Gulp gulp...wanna buy a vowel?

Good grief.
