Environment Canada On GeoEngineering

Tweet

Recently I wrote a post about Chemtrails.  It was arguably the least read, shared, commented on post I have ever published here.  No wonder, to contemplate such evil is right up there with 911 conspiracy theory or alien reptilians, right?

 

Today, I came upon a blogpost by DesmogBlog that contained Freedom of . . . → Read More: Environment Canada On GeoEngineering

Kill Bill

Tweet As the sun sets on the BC Liberal Party and the decade long theft of our assets, the fire sale intensifies. As Harper sells off Kits Coast Guard Station, Christy Clark seems intent on privatising our commons, our forests.  Lungs of the planet, pride of the west coast, our cultural identity. Bill 8 . . . → Read More: Kill Bill

Trolls and Polls

Tweet Updated at bottom Racism and ignorance are obviously alive and thriving in Canada today. I can’t help feeling overwhelmed by it.  Saddened.  Discouraged. But I have this doubt in my mind, based on stories that have surfaced over the last few years.  We all know that Stephen Harper is extremely controlling in his . . . → Read More: Trolls and Polls

Tanker Safety

Tweet

There is much talk these days about the safety of transporting bitumen via tankers in the Douglas Channel and out into Hecate Straight.  The proponentspimps of the project insist that technology is just wonderful and there will be the utmost care taken to avoid the unthinkable, a catastrophic spill on the pristine North . . . → Read More: Tanker Safety

A Clever Creative Post Eviction Idea From Occupy Wall Street

Tweet

As occupy encampments are being cleared out by bruit force all across the US and eviction notices have been handed out in Canada (some  have been or are being challenged through the courts, many ask, “what’s next?”. Is there life after the tent cities?  Personally, I have reservations, which I may share at . . . → Read More: A Clever Creative Post Eviction Idea From Occupy Wall Street

Capitalism’s nosedive. What happened to invention and innovation in the last half of the 20th century?

Tweet

I’ve asked this question before, many times in fact in the last few decades. What happened to invention and innovation in the last half the last century? Think about the fading days of the 19th and the first half of the 20th. Unprecedented progress exploded, the kind that built the foundation of . . . → Read More: Capitalism’s nosedive.

For News International, Looks Like What Goes Around Comes Around

Tweet

Indeed. Looks like the hackers have been hacked into themselves, Monday night.  It is kinda poetic. LulzSec, a hacktivist group, who claimed responsibility for some high profile cyber attacks like having taken the CIA website off line and compromising user accounts from Sony Pictures, have hacked into News International last night.  You can read more . . . → Read More: For News International, Looks Like What Goes Around Comes Around

How Bill C-6 Can Set a Dangerous Precedent For All Working Canadians, Including Non-Unionized Workers

Tweet

Assuming Stevie Spiteful stays in power, that is, and after watching both the NDP and the Liberals, this week-end, along with Stevie Spiteful’s spin machine in his media, it looks like it could well be for a very, very long time to come.  Only a very sleep deprived Lizzy May seemed to have . . . → Read More: How Bill C-6 Can Set a Dangerous Precedent For All Working Canadians, Including Non-Unionized Workers

Owen Gray Asks Where Are The Woodward And Bernsteins of Today? I Ask IF A Woodward And Bernstein Would’ve Been Able To Succeed AT All Today?

Tweet

Owen Gray, who blogs at Northern Reflections asks Where are the Woodwards and Bernsteins these days?  Today’s blog post from Owen was in reference from another great column from Lawrence Martin, where he asks if the fourth estate has lost its tenacity.  Owen’s and Lawrence Martin’s questions today remind me of a later . . . → Read More: Owen Gray Asks Where Are The Woodward And Bernsteins of Today?

Harper’s contribution to the energy debate

Tweet

The disaster in Japan is, even now, putting a spotlight on the question of nuclear power and whether it’s a good idea to emphasize it in the planning of energy policy.

I’d like to say something sensible, perhaps suggesting that if we’re going to talk about less expensive ways of producing energy, then . . . → Read More: Harper’s contribution to the energy debate

In The Name of The Father, The Son and…The Iphone?

Tweet

Yes, boys ‘n’ girls, it would appear that the digital world is now inching closer to being that playground for Socons and theocrats. 

On the first day he created a YouTube channel. On the second day he embraced social networking. On the third day, the Pope went mobile.

It seems that the Pope Ratzy has blessed . . . → Read More: In The Name of The Father, The Son and…The Iphone?

Industrial Disease, Part II

Tweet I have written this week about the Corporate Forest Industry.  Corporate Tax Cuts, followed by Industrial Disease.   In my last post, I quoted an article by Ben Parfitt, from policynote, I would like to provide the entire article.  It was so well written, it should be read in it’s entirety.   Cuts . . . → Read More: Industrial Disease, Part II

Industrial Disease

Tweet Meet the Feller Buncher.  This is a technological wonder.  It looks like a great big dirty machine, but don’t be fooled.  This is the future of the forest industry in BC.  This little technological breakthrough has replaced the labour of 10 men.  It can fall, limb, stack, load…it can virtually put the children . . . → Read More: Industrial Disease

Another Obama campaign promise broken: Net Neutrality crashed by FCC

Tweet

The corporations win another one with the help of Barack Obama, a man who promised so much only give in to the rich and to wealthy corporations again and again. Watch for more attacks by Obama on his base while praising this new development. Next up, CRTC and Canada’s dismissal of Net Neutrality.

Lisbeth Salander, Julian Assange and Sweden

Nothing much ado about anything but I find it interesting that Stieg Larsson’s Swedish heroine Lisbeth Salander was a computer hacker, a sexual heretic and a brilliant mind bent on unraveling evil while being labeled evil by the forces of evil.

CRTC succumbs to Bell: ISPs and customers to pay by byte

Tweet

This is not good for ISP’s, customers and especially downloaders.

Today the CRTC pushed telecom policy one step in the wrong direction for independent Internet Service Providers (ISPs), and one giant misguided leap in the wrong direction for Canadians. The problem? Usage-based billing (UBB).

When the CRTC approved Bell’s request to bill Internet users based . . . → Read More: CRTC succumbs to Bell: ISPs and customers to pay by byte

The Irony Of Those Freedom And Privacy Lovin’ Harpercon Cheerleaders

Tweet

Over at Queer Thoughts, Ricky Barnes points out yet another hypocrisy of Stevie Spiteful and the Harpercons, thus proving once again, that scrapping the long form census has nothing to do with privacy concerns and everything to do with pushing their ideology.  And no, he’s not talking about Bill C-42. No, something just . . . → Read More: The Irony Of Those Freedom And Privacy Lovin’ Harpercon Cheerleaders

Well, Iggy,  not only does ol’ sweater vest Steve not smell quite right; well, actually he smells exactly right; far far right; but, we all know what I mean; nothing else around him does neither. Particularly that whole G20 debacle. 

There is someting else weird about this whole Canada’s most wanted thing.  What is . . . → Read More: Something Else Just Don’t Smell Quite Right

Austerity, Wrongful Arrests, Agents Provocateurs, Police States, Overpriced Photo-Ops, AWOL Leaders — Blame the Liberals!!

Tweet

Any bets as to how long it’ll take before a Harpercon, any cheerleader from their media and/or blogging supposiTories will take before they blame it all on the Liberals?

First, a little review of why these leaders have been summoned to an overpriced shindig and photo op by Master Steve.

Who Tops Stupidity? Sandra Dee Crux? Vic Toews? Or Craig Smith? Or the Harpercons on The Whole?

Tweet

Ok, I don’t know if she tops it, but  she is definitely in a horse race with Vic Toews blaming the Liberals for G-8/G-20 debacle.  Yes! Our resident socon, philandering, Colonel Sanders look-a-like really did tell Craig Oliver that he is spending this obscene amount of money because he’s afraid the Liberals will . . . → Read More: Who Tops Stupidity?
