The 2015 federal budget vehemently argued that raising the annual TFSA contribution ceiling would benefit lower- and middle- income Canadians. But is that really the case? Find out in our latest analysis: http://www.policyalternatives.ca/number-games

A major research institution has just announced the discovery of the heaviest element yet known to science. The new element has been named “Governmentium”.

Governmentium has one neutron, 12 assistant neutrons, 75 deputy neutrons, and 224 assistant deputy neutrons, giving it an atomic mass of 311.

These 311 particles are held together by forces called morons, which are surrounded by vast quantities of lepton-like particles called peons.

Since Governmentium has no electrons, it is inert.

However, it can be detected, as it impedes every reaction with which it comes into contact. A minute amount of Governmentium causes one reaction to take over 4 days to complete, when it would normally take less than a second.

Governmentium has a normal half-life of 4 years; it does not decay, but, instead undergoes a reorganization in which a portion of the assistant neutrons and deputy neutrons exchange places.

In fact, Governmentium’s mass will actually increase over time, since each reorganization will cause more morons to become neutrons, forming isodopes.

This characteristic of moron-promotion leads some scientists to believe that Governmentium is formed whenever morons reach a certain quantity in concentration.

This hypothetical quantity is referred to as “Critical Morass”. When catalyzed with money Governmentium becomes Administratium, an element which radiates just as much energy, since it has 1/2 as many peons but twice as many morons.

The Harper government has just given away the Canadian Wheat Board to an American and Saudi Arabian-owned corporation. To add insult to injury, just last year a group of Canadian farmers tried to buy the Wheat Board assets for more than what the company is “buying” it for now, but were refused.

With a federal election coming up in the fall, this is a real opportunity for us to make sure that whoever governs Canada for the next four years will stand up for farmers. To make this an election issue, we need to send a strong message to MPs that we want a government that will stand with Canadian farmers. Join me in calling on the Canadian government to stand up for our farmers and reverse the sale of the wheat board http://action.sumofus.org/a/save-the-wheat-board/?sub=mtl
