They couldn't go through with it.
Just couldn't make those big, bad scary cuts. Had to postpone everything for at least a decade.
Not that I'm complaining.
I really dodged the big bullet. I'm 55 so I missed the cut off on the Old Age Security by, like, a year.
Bwah hah hah.
Can't touch me now, Steve-o.
I'll be a government revenue sucking leech until the day I die.
I'm so poor now, I hardly pay any income tax. I'll still be poor at age 65, so come to me, mama, you great big fat pension cheque. What is it, like, $600?
And I'll get more because I'm poor, poor.
I'll qualify for the Guaranteed Income Supplement, for sure, too. So that's something.
Sure, I may still have to live out in the woods somewhere drinking cheap hooch and living off my Air Miles from the liquor store.
Go off the grid. Get a post office box.
Count my pennies.
