“Tone deaf” Notley kicks off “Public Service Week” with “cringeworthy” dance party

Sheila Gunn ReidRebel Host | The Gunn Show

 

There was a lunchtime dance party for government worker bees in Alberta as Public Service Week kicked off in Edmonton.

Did you know there was such a thing as Public Service Week? I didn’t either until I saw Premier Notley’s tweet declaring the week long fête that included video of a choreographed lunchtime dance routine by government workers at the Federal Building in Edmonton.

Watch as I share that video with you. It’s the most cringeworthy thing you’ll see today.

The government is celebrating themselves for doing stuff functioning adults do everyday, like showing up to work and doing their jobs in exchange for a pay cheque.

Everyday is public sector day when the shrinking private sector is covering the cost of their cushy, overly secure careers and generous pensions.

But the dance party video, however embarrassing for all the fancy prancers involved, is also so unbelievably tone deaf.

When you break down the current unemployment numbers, coupled with the growth in the public sector, it’s easy to see why the conditions are nothing to celebrate.

In fact, we should be very worried.

Knock yourself out Notley! It looks like these union workers need some exercise. We the people will be exercising our right to boot you to the curb in the next election. Steal all you can until then!

Amazing the damage that can be done in four years! It will take three times as long to get Alberta back.

You would have thought the Fairview Flash would have donned the hooker gear from her pride parade gyrations, and led this communist hop. Rachael is in a real dancing mood lately, a bit of a facade considering she will be unemployed in less than a year. Looks like most of those dancing public trough leeches haven’t missed a meal lately.

Even though I am no longer in Alberta because there was no work there because of the wicked witch of the West, I still will be happy to see that witch kicked out of office next year even if her replacement is a CINO Conservative.

I doubt Alberta will make the mistake of voting in the NDP again. Notley has assured another 40 year reign of the Conservative party.

Googled temporary foreign workers in Alberta, of course the numbers are for 2016.
10,000.
With all those government employees you would think the numbers would be up to 2017.
So add another -10,000 jobs = -90,000 government and temp workers plus……
Lets not forget the the number of illegal parasites and Fakugees invited by turdo = negative who knows how many they wont tell us. We are just expected to pay for them.
This is the size of many small city’s in Alberta.
Time to drain the cesspool that is Alberta and Ottawa.

My wife laid off after 18 years had to attend an unemployment course (Mandatory)or her benefits
would be terminated. I asked her to take note of who was attending by race and age.
I will not say the result here sadly it was no surprise.
Why do we still have a temporary foreign worker program with this many people unemployed?
Some public workers are necessary of course, but 88,000 seems like a lot.

Dance people or join the ranks of the unemployed. Which hopefully, is coming soon anyway.
The damage Notley and Trudeau have done to Alberta, will probably take generations to rebuild, assuming from here on we get good governments.

Canada has a very bloated public sector on all three levels of government. The perks and wage that the public sector receives along with their guaranteed annual raise is a slap in the face to the private sector that pays their wages. The private sector in most instances for similar jobs fall well under what the public sector receives. Socialists love this gravy train yet they don’t see the section of track missing up ahead. All they need to do is look at how Greece’s public sector got out of hand and … oh wait, that would mean using common sense and functioning brain cells … nevermind, carry on.

These bought-and-paid-for public servants are all going to vote ndp and also their families as well, you know, they won’t want to give up their “feeding at the trough”. So in a small province as Alberta, there are 88,000 of these blood suckling parasites that are costing us billions to keep them all. How in the hell is Jason Kenney ever going to bring this down? Our son moved within Alberta, doesn’t qualify for UI that he paid into for 18 years and no luck in finding a job yet after 8 months, employers are so keen on hiring females, immigrants, blacks, yellows but not YOUR YOUNG WHITE MALES. NO luck in even finding a job in a grocery store, very disappointed when you see these pampered civil servants celebrating all the freebies they get from us while we go without.

Notice how as the public sector gets more and more workers(SNICKER) the less they actually accomplish.

I think Kathleen Wynne would make a great campaign manager for Notley in the next election given how well she managed her own campaign in Ontario.

While the private sector goes down the toilet.

I am speechless.
Be afraid. Be very afraid.
They live in a false reality.

Socialism always celebrates itself. Notley and the union fat cats don’t care about real Albertans. We’re to be punished for having radical ideas like being debt free, spending less than we make, being frugal, being self-reliant, and doing unto others what we’d like done to us. Sooner or later, the prolls will revolt. Let’s hope it’s at the ballot box next year.

Sure hope that Nutley witch has a “party” place all checked out – maybe in Venezuela – when she kicks her useless tyrannical ass kicked right out of Alberta, – and she can take all those “dyckey” looking government civil “servants” along with her!!
NOTE to Nutley: We are taking Alberta BACK! – better run & hide ’cause your sorry, sick ass is grass!
