Like last week’s blog entry about this, appropriately headlined “Funky Country: Canadian TV ratings: All American; and no state-media shows make the grade,” we once again see where the progressives’ idiot box social engineering effort FAILS, despite blowing countless tens (hundreds?) of BILLIONS of taxpayer dollars at the progressives’ effort to create a “Canadian Culture”…. FOR US. A “Canadian Culture” by government decree. By rule of law. They think we’re incapable of creating our own culture. So they deploy the government to do it for us. They deploy the government to do everything for us. The government is always the answer for progressives. For every thing.
Countless tens of BILLIONS of Canadian taxpayer funding of the state-owned CBC, which has itself failed utterly; and more BILLIONS for “Canadian content” ( ); and myriad laws restricting American content; and more laws actually forcing Canadian content ratios on people watching TV; and other broadcast laws actually forcing the state-owned CBC (and to a lesser extent, liberalvision CTV) onto cable and satellite packages, whether citizens want them or not.
And they call the TV the idiot box? I hereby rename progressives as “the idiot box”. And it’s a huge box.
Vote liberal. Vote “progressive”. They promise they won’t progress any more than they already have. They’re all done now. Yup.

And as always, I repeat my mantra for the truly intelligent: State-owned or state-run or state-controlled media should be banned in this country, and that notion should be enshrined in our constitution. And as any idiot can plainly see, the liberal-left progressives should stop trying to social engineer Canadians with our own money, and with state-owned media behemoths like the CBC.
