Rob Ford's Toronto

This reminds me of the "Rob don't use no computers" bragging by DoFoJr.
Maybe he is a savant and crunches the billions he's saving the Taxper in his head?

Like, isn't Excel on computers and shit?


Most computer hardware run into problems when exposed to and immersed in gravy. Excel tends to choke when calculating large figures of savings in the billions and gajillions. Also, Excel is politically biased.
 
Dear Thread,

The individual insisting posters PM *them* with info is mildly discomfiting. Generally, and YMMV, those who had a degree of 'cred' would PM any threader who said something mildly interesting (to poster w/ cred) and such discussions would go sub-rosa. Why the need to covet and hide as opposed to share and enlighten?

Sincerely,

A. Curious, York Mills
 
So, yeah, he'll more than likely be thrilled to have this become an issue. Unless the recording makes is *obvious* that he was wasted. If we get the first "confirmed" stupor post-rehab, it would be the equivalent of the Steak Queen video, which was the first confirmed stupor after he started working with his "team of professionals" in December.

Bottom line, he won't learn anything and will continue along his self-destructive path.

And consider how many remaining Ford Nationals have probably *never*, themselves, called the Mayor. They just *hear* about his being always available and always diligently returning calls, and take it at face value.

That is, his returning calls might actually *lose* votes--among those being called--than gain them.
 
Less than than meh. Sucks. I had *higher* expectations.

Phoning someone around 2:00 am illustrates that Ford has mental health issues aplenty. No rational, responsible adult would would even think of doing that, unless, of course, it's an emergency, or that person is high on something.

Oh I know that and you know that but will this play well come tomorrow or because one can't tell if he had a few pops, will it be merely Robbie loves you Toronto.

It also pretty much guarantees he doesn't run the risk of actually speaking to his constituents or addressing their concerns. Window dressing.
 
It would be fitting if someone started robocalling Ford Nation at 2:00am with a recorded message about potholes. Maybe in September when the kids go back to school.

LMAO

Re the late night phone call from MINO to a constituent, someone on Twitter is claiming, "this thing was staged." to Jonathan Goldsbie.

"For seven seconds of voicemail I have to listen to two full minutes of idiot? Great..."

Video is now private...

Hoax? :confused:

( As seen on Twitter ) This just in from Burlington...

So. This shouldl be be interesting. The former Q West habituee (or not) taking on her/his/its speculative ?ioners. Show us the visionary, prof.
 
Lately he's been downplaying the cost to provide subways subways subways - he's claimed "his" tax increase is only 0.25% although the final prop tax hike will be 1.6%. Because that's what he'd like it to be, or possibly just because his garbled speech comes out sounding that way.

i know most on here know that ford's "i save taxpayers' money" persona is a fraud, but i gotta get this out.

Ford has raised taxes, not lowered them. After a tax freeze in his first budget, in 2011, there has been a property tax increase in each successive budget: 2.5 per cent in 2012, 2 per cent in 2013, 2.7 per cent in 2014.

his tax increase for that subway, in Scarborough, is not “a quarter of one per cent†— it is 0.5 per cent in 2014, another 0.5 per cent in 2015, and another 0.6 per cent in 2016, then staying for about 30 years.

Ford of imposing “the largest tax increase in the city’s history,†the 30-year, $910-million property tax and development charge hike needed to cover the extra cost of a subway over an LRT line. Ford said the subway would cost a mere $5 per household, which is not true; the project will require an extra $40 per year for about 30 years beginning in 2016.
