Generation Trudeau: Why do Millennials like Justin's carbon tax?

David MenziesMission Specialist
 

Prime Minister Justin Trudeau is convinced that Canada needs a carbon tax in order to help save the planet, even though we only contribute 1.5 per cent of the world’s CO2 emissions. 

Many Canadians feel they’re taxed enough already, but watch as I ask members of Generation Trudeau what they think about it.

It seems they overwhelmingly support a carbon tax regardless of the facts because if Justin likes it, it must good.

Harold Hoff and Andy Neimers, you have both really nailed it. Our schools are packed with “progressive” minded union workers (teacher’s association). They have beaten conservatives at the very root of our society, our children. Schools have become just what you say, Harold, and until we start to change that and protect our children from it, this kind of teaching is now the norm, not the exception.

Let’s face the fact that this gross stupidity among the ranks of the millennials didn’t just happen overnight… It has been a long time coming – I would suggest even going back to the post-war 50s… The parents of the children born post war wanted “the best” for their kiddies… They were pampered and indulged and the “don’t spank the little brats” philosophy of Dr, Benjamin Spock was a best-seller… The first indicators of where our society was headed was the Flower Power and druggie culture glorified by the Vietnam War Generation… Then they had their offspring, who were educated in schools and universities chock a block full of revolutionaries and Marxists… By the time of Generation X we had reams of brats who had been told that the world revolved around their dimpled bums and they could “do no wrong”… So now we have the Millennials, an accumulation of all of the above with scant exceptions save for those raised by conservative parents, or parents and grandparents who had escaped 50 years of Communism, or were probably home-schooled… We have indeed. “inherited the wind”, and the vacuous stupidity of students today, on almost any issue, is “living proof” …

“Justin and the Liberals” . " Lies and Deceit ". ’ Truth vs Deception’ . “Slavery or Socialism”

We’re all lost :-( and I lay the blame squarely on an education system that has collapsed into indoctrination centers rather than promoting fact-based education and critical thinking

Anthony – and because they think someone else is going to pay the bills. Just wait until reality slaps them upside the head.

Because they don’t have families to take care of? Because they were brainwashed by our liberal school system? Because they think Justin is cute? Because they think they will get something out of it for them? Because they watch fake news? Because they were brainwashed by their union leaders? Because it’s the cool thing and they like Leo and Jane? Because they somehow benefit from Soros? Like Justin believes?

Evelyn cooper said
all receipts for purchases should clearly show how much of that payment relates to the Carbon Tax, as we do for the GST and the PST.
-——————————-
There is two reasons the carbon tax wasn’t separated and itemized… Reason number one.. they plan on bumping it two more times in the next three years. Reason number two.. it comes up with the total at the end and then GST/HST is applied and we are paying tax on tax which is illegal under the Canadian Constitution.

As Stefan Molyneux suggests we have to start by firing the teachers that fill the children’s heads with Climate Change made by man garbage. Next, the nutty professors.

We allow these people to vote? Agreeing with something you know nothing about. And these are the new socialists who probably believe that it won’t effect them personally or the economy.

What ?!? No solar powered bicycle? Time to role out a 3 year old pitching a wind powered electric & almost perpetual motion ski-do. Wynne & Murray need to get their unicorns in a row or there could be decent lurking.

These idiots probably don’t even know what a Tax is, never mind Carbon.

The River Danube has frozen over and they are using Ice Breakers to clear it. Could this be caused by Global Warming and man made Carbon emissions?

I guess we had better ask Justin.

You should ask the kids " do you agree to help reduce CO2 that smoking should be out lawed" and when they answer yes then that means out lawing pot er ah hmm iiii er a e no

The test scores at schools may be down but the kids are still getting schooled !

If possible (it ought to be) and to give Spud clear credit for his plan forcing Canadians to help resolve the Global (Warming/Cooling/Change) Climate crisis, all receipts for purchases should clearly show how much of that payment relates to the Carbon Tax, as we do for the GST and the PST. At least then individuals might learn what their share of this Tax really is; albeit a Tax that has no specific purpose or measurable consequence or means of accountability.

Why did the Millennial cross the road? Because someone told them to.

Aside from the fact these inebriates have clouded what little critical thinking capacity they have,with alcohol, did anyone else pick up on the glaring hypocrisy of people in a self indulgent stupor of excess, are in favor of punishing other’s excesses through taxation?

Do they realize a so called carbon tax will cripple their earning and spending power and keep them in low paying dead end mcJobs paying struggling to pay for something that cannot be effected by their taxes

This is either a case of hypocrisy or masochism but probably a matter of ignorance and lack of reason.

When you live in mommy and daddy’s basement, smoke pot and play video games who cares about a carbon tax,
. Just wait till mommy and daddy get the tax bill and start asking for rent though.

I had to watch Menzoids clip again. Astonishing. The parents should be tracked down and interviewed. The results would be INTERESTING.
commented 2017-01-12 12:12:46 -0500
PATHETIC….and the one air headed skank blathered that Canada is producing way more co2 than the US, bla bla bla. Catherine McKenna would fit well with this group. She is equally as stunned. Would YOU want to be a parent of one of these know nothings? They probably don’t even know that when they fire up the bong that they are adding co2 to the atmosphere.

How could these fools even debate the topic? they obviously know NOTHING.

You know what?

I’m GLAD Trudope and Nutly got elected. We’ve been trying to explain for years and years, ideologies like their will, not, work, yet nobody wants to listen.

Welp.

If you won’t listen to logic, the only way to learn is to experience consequences.

And if you can’t figure it out after that?

I’m sure “Natural Selection” will take care of things.

By the way. I’d like to see how many millennial aged CONSERVATIVES are still living with, and off, their parents.
commented 2017-01-12 11:34:30 -0500
Menzoid that question was too hard. What Robert said. Either raise the voting age to 30 or at least make employment mandatory to be eligible to vote.
commented 2017-01-12 11:13:21 -0500
I used to be baffled how a complete moron like Little Potato-Head got elected but the Menzoid seems to have shed some light on it. Eastern millennials are retarded and they must be voting.
commented 2017-01-12 11:10:54 -0500
A bunch of gullible Trudiots who are still living in their parents basement, don’t drive cars and aren’t paying the bills yet.

These air head snow flakes will soon see the light, no C.TAX in the U.S.A.lower tax on every thing and Canada comes crashing down.

Why do Millennials think Justin’s carbon tax is a good idea? Because they’re idiots. Only an idiot would think that by giving their money away to the government that the air we breathe would magically become purified.

Yup. A real gaggle of winners. That’s for sure!

I have seen the future, and to quote one of the millennials, “we’re screwed”!
