Light and shadow on evergreen with tortoise shell cat.
Our Neighbours’ elusive ‘Tortoise Shell’ cat should be trying to blend in with the shadows beneath this spreading evergreen tree on the hill that is happily catching and reflecting light.

Hey Jim,

I should try to learn not to let this stuff upset me, but I can’t —

— 1.) Yesterday I heard an economist being interviewed on the radio tell a reporter that for all the jobs the current Prime Minister of Canada is trying to brag that he created with ‘his economic policy’ – the real income of Canadians has not risen at all – The Economist ( a human guy, not the magazine ) said that this would shine a brilliant warning light to economists everywhere that the Canadian economy is in deep trouble.

— 2.) Shortly after that interview aired we heard that the PMO (Prime Minister’s Office) sent out a call to all news agencies to send their reporters to where the Prime Minister would be making an important announcement. *Claxton Warning #1* The PMO and the Prime Minister should be seen – and heard – as making a huge ethical faux pas by framing this announcement as a political event during the current political election season here in Canada. Dictators in 3rd world countries have been shot for less. Dictators in ‘First World’ countries have been seized by angry mobs, dragged through the streets and butchered in town squares for less.  — well, maybe the trigger of the butchering event would have come after years of egregious violation of human rights, which seems to be the earmark of Dictators everywhere. The ‘proverbial’ straw that breaks the camel’s back is often comparatively minor compared to other crimes against humanity and all that other stuff that dictators are so good at.

— 3.) When the reporters were all duly assembled, the Prime Minister announced that the Trans Pacific ‘Parnership’ had been agreed to in principal and would now be going to all twelve ‘Partner’ countries’ legislatures for review and endorsement – And the Prime Minister grinned broadly and did all he could to accept ‘credit’ for what he would like you to believe is a real triumph of negotiations and a wonderful thing that would help him go down in history as a brilliant and benevolent ‘Leader’ of ‘This Great Country’ and crown him with all sorts of legendary glory for being a ‘right headed visionary’ and saving the Canadian economy in a very dark hour.

— 4.) Ralph Nader went on the record a short time later, labeling the Trans Pacific Partnership a thinly veiled atrocity put together by the most clever corporate lawyers who haven’t yet been lined up against the wall and shot by the honest people they swindled and sold into slavery – And he called the “TPP” itself an attempt to strip duly elected governments of their sovereignty and place them under the rule of multi-National Corporations.

— 5.) Why hasn’t anybody coined the phrase ‘Supra-National Corporations’ yet?

— 6.) The current Prime Minister of Canada is one of those idiots suffering from testosterone poisoning, who believes that if he says anything with enough force and conviction in his voice, no matter how egregious a lie the statement is when he pronounces it, that statement will become truth by the force of his will.

— 7.) You Cannot Trust Stephen Harper. For all the many deals he claims he and his cronies have negotiated in favour of the citizens of Canada – Canada is not one iota better off. In fact Stephen Harper’s policies have screwed Canada, screwed Canadians, stripped Canadians of their rights and freedoms, ruined their economy and pushed Canada way down the ‘slippery slope’ toward the kind of economic slavery ‘enjoyed’ by every other third world nation on this planet.

— 8.) Don’t believe me? If this stupid ‘partnership’ goes through it won’t be long before you see in front of your own eyes just how bad a situation you allowed yourselves to be sold into can be.

— 9.) Schnarr!
