There was recently a radio interview with Peter Warren of Rick Ciarniello, the president of the Hell's Angels in BC. Ciarniello said something when questioned about the money the motorcycle club makes (allegedly) on criminal activities, suggested as grow-ops, that seemed appropo, he said, (paraphrasing) - "compared to the money the government makes ripping off Canadians, we are just pikers!"
A lot of truth in that statement. Of course you KNOW you pay tax on tax in a lot of cases with the GST etc. And much of the so called user fees should have already been paid for by your income or property taxes.
But there seems to me to be one organization higher than both the Angels AND the governments .... those are the banks.
The BMO as it likes to be called now, (Bank of Montreal) is down at the mouth because they made only 541 MILLION DOLLARS IN THE LAST THREE MONTHS!!!!!
What does all this prove? That growing marijuana or taxing you to death is not nearly as criminally profitable as stealing the dollars right out of your bank account!
... Does that guy Tony Comper, the CEO, look like a reptilian shape-shifter to you?
