    This is a non-partisan video produced by an accountant, Hal Mason, retired
    after 27 years with IBM. He looks at the budget, its revenues and expenses,
    and very simply illustrates the problem. It’s only a few minutes long.

    WTF is Hal Mason...he could be a kitchen cook for all we know.

    His words mean NOTHING!

    Why do you ppl give so much credence to any 2-bit a-hole that says something you agree with?

    Don't you realize how foolish, ridiculous and non-credible you make yourselves seem?

    Don't you wish they did? Bi partisan shot here.

    You didn't do the job. Fired!

    I really wish we could. Both sides of the aisle down south. We truly off people up here lately.

    And it's good to flush them. We just had this really monumentally cool election where the people completely threw out the liberals and went for the NDP. It was awesome.

    Long story for tomorrow. But it can be done.

    Good video. The government is spending more than it takes in. He pointed out everybody would have to be taxed at 50% to pay for current spending.
    Shit we can't go on like that.

    can you afford to pay 50% tax so the government can keep up with current spending?
