What exactly is a "schelpp" anyway?

No teacher makes $150, 000.

Maybe they are schlepps?

This is sadly very very false. Teachers at top incomes are some of the top incomes in Canada when looking at average income for the whole country.

However, this does not by any means mean they are "rich", but saying that a teacher making 60-75,000 a year isn't even middle class I have to wonder where you think the middle class is, since people at 150,000 are seemingly considered rich.


Now more on point, when it come to the thread topic it was about NDP provincial spending, and Dix has been noted in radio interviews and saying that around 150,000 per year could be considered "rich" and "owe more"

That is very very far from the Uber rich you are talking about. That is common people who worked a long hard time to get that wage only to be told they don't deserve it.



And Dix would make what, just under $150,000. How fricken convenient!
You are not stupid, I just think you have bad luck when thinking.

Like all socialists, Dix is setting a taxation limit that forces someone other than himself to pay more. All's good, as long as YOU pay for ME. Ahh, to be a retired teacher like George and not give 2 hoots about the economy...

The middle class has already been soaked more by the Fiberals.
Taxes, carbon tax, user fees, tolls, etc etc
Time for the"uber rich" to pay up.

The two words would have to be in the same sentence to have your intended meaning.
But you are right.

There is almost no middle class! :dyinglaughing:

Interesting graphic - provincial total net debt change 2007/08 to 2010/12, total debt per capita by year 1981 to 2012, and surplus/deficit change 2007/08 to 2011/12. One might almost get the impression the 1990's were a period in BC where we perhaps failed to spend enough under the NDP (rather than too much as some claim). We've sure made up for it since though huh?

Damned near flat from 2001 - 2012. It sure went for a crapper between 1997 - 2001 though, during the time that Adrian Dix was the second most powerful man in the province. Thanks for that gem, Nab. You and George are getting good at proving the points of the right. :dyinglaughing:

:137: And then what happened after the Liberals took over power with a budget surplus and immediately enjoying economic boom times? It would seem that despite all their reckless cuts no money was, in fact, saved and the debt grew considerably over the Liberal term (far more than it had under the NDP). Were you having trouble understanding the graph?

Obviously, your orange-coloured glasses aren't allowing you to discern the graph's levels properly. The debt grew much further 1997 - 2001 than it did 2001 - 2012, with several years of debt reduction occurring 2004 - 2008. This graph doesn't paste well into Casta-silly forums, but here it is for those who won't bother to look for themselves.

Adrian Dix and the NDP sunk us into expense debt (remember how Adrian ruined our credit rating?) in the late 90s/early 00s moreso than any levels during the next government.
