Harper just signed a secret deal (not made public, anyway) with China to share customs and import-export information. Not unlike our previous deals with the US to share all Canadian information. The ENTIRE population of Canada is barely larger than ONE of the largest metropolitan cities in China (Chongquin). So how does their national import and export information benefit us? How does giving the US our information make any sense?And the US/Canada security industry monitors every single phone call and e-mail and text message in all of N. America all the time….?
Elizabeth May, leader of the Green Party (and usually spot on), has asked Parliament to investigate the myth of 911. Apparently there are some people in Canada that doubt the official story of 911. And she wants to get to the bottom of it. Any person with half a brain knows that the official story of 911 is false. So, why pose the question? Do you actually WANT more lies? And why is Canada posing the question? Why Elizabeth? How does raising that question in 2014 (begun by any sentient witness in 2001) make any sense?
Five or six cops jump and kill a large black man (the latest of many) in New York who is NOT resisting arrest and their grand jury does not see grounds to indict the cop with some kind of criminal charge. “There may be a case (in tort law) of negligence but there is not a case for criminal prosecution.” Doesn’t that mean that any cop at any time can kill anyone for virtually any reason at all and they will never be charged with a crime?
And aren’t they actually already doing that….?
Christie Clark just ‘gave it away’ and Petronas still doesn’t want to ‘take’ our natural gas.
As CO2 emissions strangulate us, the price of oil has plummeted to half the market price just a year ago.
“The economy is strong!” says Harper and Clark and yet interest rates remain at record lows and individual Canadian debt is at record highs. And the cost of living is increasing . The province of BC owes billions! All the while child poverty and homelessness is reaching epidemic levels. Health Care and Education are crumbling. Gambling and prostitution are now legal and Heroin is being dispensed by the government.
China is the largest economy in the world (just announced) – an economy built on exporting junk. The US, second – an economy built on importing junk. The rich are still getting richer. And ordinary Canadians can’t afford to own a home.
ISIL nut-bars are proliferating – or so they say – in Syria and Iraq – and Canada is flying sorties against them. Traffic accidents and mental patients are characterized in the guise of terrorism. So are 15 year-old petty thieves.
Ban Ki-moon (UN secretary General) is speaking bluntly: “We MUST address climate change or else our species is in peril!” He is twenty years or more overdue, of course – late, like all so-called leaders – but he has dropped ‘diplomacy-speak’ and is telling it like it is. It seems no one is listening!
The police are killing citizens willy-nilly, the planet is dying, our Prime Minister is signing secret deals with the largest junk economies in the world. Canadians are being ripped off at every level. The climate is changing. And we are celebrating war, of all things! That which we have paid through the nose for (oil) is – all of a sudden – cheap and that which was offered too cheap (LNG), no one wants.
And I am currently working in the city – mostly by sitting in traffic and talking on a phone…….does any of this make any sense to you? Is it not all illogical in the extreme? Is it not all incredibly mad?
Answer: yes. It is mad. Well and truly insane-making mad. And, consequently, I am getting madder every day. I may go home.
