Firefighters endorse CTF tax proposal?

No, not exactly, but there is a fantastic new ad for Sprint's Nextel Direct Connect that suggest that if politicians were more like no-nonsense firefighters things would be better and simpler for all citizens.

They hit on many CTF hobby horses like, balanced budgets, simplified single-page taxes, road improvement (presumably through the use of gas tax revenue...), and clean water legislation (as opposed to carbon taxes and climate change legislation which will not improve the quality of the air or water).

Have a watch:



If there was an extended Canadian version I think it might go something like this:

Fire Chief: How 'bout the budget?
Firefighters: Balance it!

FC: And the taxes?
FF: One page or less!

FC: What about the debt?
FF: Pay it off!

FC: Corporate Welfare?
FF: I don't think so!

FC: Hey guys, what should we do with the surplus in the EI fund?
FF: Give it back!

FC: Anyone want better roads?
FF: We do!

FC: Need clean water guys?
FF: AYE!

FC: And a carbon tax?
FF: NO!

FC: Alright, this is the easiest job I've ever had. We're outta here.
