That “Something’s Missing Here-” Feeling :

Monday, December 07, 2015  -( +1˚C / + 34˚F & maybe a little too bright and shiny out there in Atlantic Canada @ 8:28 am )-

Pretty blue and purple hues through a security camera.
“Deer Cam 01” Looks like a painting, Captured on Saturday, 05 December, 2015

— Ever since Barak Obama’s speech the other day – in which he decried that People on the ‘No-Fly list’ should not be able to buy guns – something about that speech had bothered me. I think that maybe this morning I figured out what that was.

— Um, when they’re sworn in, Presidents of the United States of America are supposed to pledge themselves to ‘protect and defend’ the Constitution of the United States.

— The Constitution of the United States includes a few provisions that sound suspiciously like ‘Thou shalt respect the rule of Law’. A big deal in the U.S. of A. is a section in the Law of the Land that says everyone is “Innocent Until Proven Guilty” – another provision is  without “Everyone is entitled to a trial by a jury of their peers.” This is called “Due Process” – no one should be stripped of their human rights without due process of the law.

— Remember a couple years ago Yusuf Islam – neé Steven Demetre Georgiou, 21 July 1948 – & possibly better known as ‘Cat Stevens’ – Discovered that his name was on a ‘No Fly List’ in the USA. [ not that this particular Yusuf Islam would ever want to buy a gun, but – ] & While I don’t remember hearing that anybody ever apologized to the singer, songwriter, peace activist, purveyor of Love, Understanding, Wisdom, Intelligence and Tolerance – I do remember somebody explaining that ‘Yusuf Islam’ is a common name among followers of Islam and the reason that the entertainer formerly known as Cat Stevens had been denied permission to fly into the US of A most likely had something to do with someone else with that Islamic name having been declared a terrorist somewhere on this planet.

— Something that might be similar to the name comfusion cited in the above paragraph and important enought to mention here is what happened in the first of two US Federal elections in which George W Bush was not elected President of the United States, but ended up sitting in the White House for four years after each ‘election’. As was painstakingly documented by BBC journalists, Jeb Bush – G.W.’s brother – and then governor of Florida, the ‘hanging chad state’,  paid millions of dollars to a Texas-based Conservative Republican research group that supplied him with a list of felons in the state of Texas. Jeb Bush then passed this information on to ‘Law “Enforcement”-‘ “Officials” in the state of Florida, and had them make sure that no one with a Name and Date of Birth that was a close match to anyone on that list and whose race was “other than White” was allowed to vote in the Y2K US Federal Election in the state of Florida. In case you’ve forgotten – Al Gore was projected the winner of Florida’s electoral votes and thereby the Presidency of the USA in that election before a major [ Mercury Retrograde ] ‘Wait a minute’! SNAFU called a halt to the legal election processes and threw the state of Florida into a recount mode that ended in a catastrophe of near Biblical Proportions, in which enough of the 9 hand picked Judges sitting on the Supreme Court of the USA ignored their constitutional imperative and handed the white house to G.W. Bush, Making G.W.B. the first ‘Resident’ of the white house who had no business being there. The second Federal Election involving G.W. Bush was sabotaged by the CEO of Diebold Corporation who had bragged that he could, and did – hand the election to G.W. Bush [ -AKA ‘Shrub’, AKA George the second of the Bush Dynasty, AKA a lot of things that cannot be printed in a ‘G’ rated blog. ] George W. Bush is the only ‘Resident’ we can be reasonably sure NEVER won a Presidential Election.

— What does the above paragraph have to do with guns and ‘no fly’ lists? Well, (1) The US Justice system has been subverted and perverted. It has become so corrupt that calling it ‘corrupt’ is way beyond redundant. (2) Since September 11, 2001, and the ensuing ‘Homeland Security Act’ – names get listed on the ‘No Fly List’ without due process of the law. (3) Denying anyone of their constitutional rights in the USA is a Federal crime.

— So, Barry, who is pulling your strings? Who pointed a gun to your head and told you that if you want your daughters to live to see 2016, you better stand up and advocate ignoring the US Constitution and instituting illegal denial of Constitutionally guaranteed Human Rights to satisfy some shadowy gang of perverted Ice-Holes’ agenda? Whatever happened to Due Process? Whatever happened to ‘Innocent until proven guilty’? Do you really want to go down in History as the idiot who ignored the oath you took and burned the bill of rights?

— & to everyone else who read this far: Don’t worry. The evil ice-holes behind the latest activations of mass murdering helplessly brainwashed puppets with fall under the rule of Karma that catches up with all evil ice-holes. They are so power hungry and so immoral and unethical that they will kill each other off to the point where the few that remain alive will be totally impotent in their rabid attempts to turn this planet into the kind of Hell they have been trying to create here.

First Significant Snow Of The Season

Friday, December 4th, 2015 -( -6˚C / 21˚F — Clear & damp & “Brrrr” in Atlantic Canada @ 9:16 am )-

Sunlight hitting trees burdened with snow behind trees in shadow.
The sky was an amazing pinkish tobacco colour about ten minutes before I took this photo. At full size this almost captures the magic-
Snow laden tree photographed with flash before dawn.
This was shot from almost the same spot as the photo above it, at about 5:55 am – The photo above was shot at about 7:47 am.
Snow laden branches
Canada Street is hiding behind snow laden trees in this shot. This scene, backlit by streetlights before dawn was spectacular, but I couldn’t mess with the exposure well enough to capture that. I did fuss with brightness, contrast and saturation just a bit to get this effect several minutes after a magical sunrise in the upper right has lost its dazzle.
Trees bowing with heavy wet snow.
This is up the hill to the south and west from Cathi’s ‘Zen Corner’ of our yard. The trees are not bowing to us in worship, That is heavy wet snow and the trees are dancing their swan song in beautiful but heavy dresses.

—Last night’s snow was a sonofagun to clear away from the end of our driveway after the snowplow tried again to kill me by dumping hard to shovel heavy wet snow compacted not quite to the point where large climbs became ice boulders – And then clearing the icy wet heavy stuck snow from the roof of the van so Cathi could drive legally to work almost convinced my back that it was broken. Should I describe shooting, burning pains in back and shoulders? Nahhhh- This ‘first significant snow of the season’ was beautiful and inspiring, even if the damp cold did sting. Neighbours that often frown smiled and waved at me when they saw that I was taking photographs of the sunlight touching the trees up the top of the hill & giving us unexpected bits of morning colour in this newly whitened world.

Saturday – Warm – With Weird Stuff Happening in Europe & Hopeful Stuff Here?

Saturday, November 21, 2015 -( 3˚C / 37˚F @ 6:00 pm in dark, warmer than usual Atlantic Canada )-

cleanproteinfarmfoods.ca website screen shot
Good News First? We discovered a relatively new organization that supports local farmers who grow what we hope are 100% natural food and sell that directly to their customers. We’ll know a little more next Tuesday.

Above is a screen shot from —> cleanproteinfarmfoods.ca  [ <— link ] We’re hoping their stuff is 100% free of anything genetically modified. & we’ll let you know about that after Tuesday evening.

We owe our existance to topsoil and rain.
Ain’t it the Truth? Support your local family farms! Before Monsanto kills us all and reports back to the devil that they’ve won. (( Schnarr! ))

Meanwhile:

1984 revisited
I went looking for some of those gawdawful images of heavily armed military guys terrorizing civilians in Brussels today. Every day it appears more clear that my father’s generation went to war between 1939 and 1945 to free the world of Nazis so good old boys the world over could sneak them bloody fascists into their countries and learn from them all their secrets and turn the whole bloody planet into a series of terrorized concentration camps.
schnarr
Taylorism: The plot by elitists to micro-manage technology and surpress everyone they could while exploiting them in economic slavery; making themselves richer and more powerful all the time and making sure the creative, innovative and productive are rendered powerless and penniless and in debt way over their heads through all eternity.
schnarr ii
Yes, World War II was fought so ice holes could learn how to terrorize anyone who’d been born into a free society and fleece the honest citizens of the world and invoke a Fascist/Terrorist world economy and corporate Oligarchy? ???
WTF X2
So while Donald Trump wants to be the king of everything and build a strong defensive wall around his riches, he’s using the old ‘Divide and Conquer’ strategies, trying to scare Americans into fearing refugees and economic immigrants that the corporate oligarchy needs to work for almost nothing. & his Trumpness forgets that if he gets his way and outlaws refugees,  Native Americans,  Canadian First Nations, and all of North and South American aboriginals might find a legal loophole to export all the European, Asian, and ‘other’ usurpers who came to “Turtle Island” / the ‘Americas’ to escape the kind of tyranny that ice holes like Trump are trying to reinstate here now.
ouch
The bottom line is. The loving, industrious, creative, nurturing, supportive citizens of this world are the ones who suffer the most,  to the point where they’re almost paralyzed when bigoted ice-holes do their damnedest to create a state of constant fear and add their divisive propaganda which encourages morons to bully and isolate anyone who might look slightly different, but who just might be the Angels in Earthly form who can save us all from wannabe Hitlers and other Anti-Christs.

— Anybody want a soapbox? — I’m finished with it for today.

Nice Day To Vote – & Some Cathing Up –

Saturday, October 10th, 2015 -( 9˚C / 48˚F — Clear, Bright, Sunny and Breezy — A bit nippy —@ 4:53 pm in this little corner of Atlantic Canada )-  It’s my nephew, Westley’s Birthday, and his father, Mike’s Birthday today.

Marysville Baptist Church
This is what the Marysville Baptist Church looked like after we voted this afternoon – Saturday, October 10th, 2015.

— The News Media warned us yesterday, So many Canadians were turning out for ‘Advanced Polling’ that many had to wait as long as 2 hours and quite a few people were upset that only one polling booth was open at each advanced polling location. As we approached the front door of the Marysville Baptist Church, which will be open for our advanced voting for 4 days – yesterday, today, tomorrow and Monday – from noon to 8 pm local time – A smiling woman we’d never met before came out of the building, almost walked past us, quickly caught the door before it closed and held it for us, happily telling us “It only took two minutes – Um, the line was about fifteen minutes long -” We thanked her, smiled back – Yes, smiling is contagious – and thought, “Yes, I love New Brunswick people.”

— There was an older man with a slight hearing problem checking to be sure we had proper I.D. before waving us through to stand in the line behind something like twenty people while three volunteers were again checking I.D.s, crossing names off their lists of registered voters, handing paper ballots to voters – one at a time – and occasionally making sure of things, like the older woman who had to sit down in a chair knew where her place in the line was, and the younger gentleman who was out of line talking animatedly to a couple he obviously knew and knew well, and liked – knew where his place in line was and wasn’t trying to jump ahead of anybody.

— A woman ( best guess – she was probably in her thirties or forties ) looked like she was in a hurry, came in after we did, quizzed the older man checking I.D.s at his table outside the church gymnasium – “Is the line always this long? You only have one polling booth? Why do you have only one booth? Okay, I’m coming back later -” and she left. The older man called after her, “It might be worse later, I’ve seen this line almost out the door -” But she waved him away and hurried back outside.

— The man immediately in front of us came back out and basically asked the older man checking I.D.s the same questions and then grumbled, “It’s almost as if they want to discourage us from voting.” The current ‘Government’/regime has rushed through a 1984 double speak type bill called “The Fair Elections Act” or something very close to that. The bill – which was passed into law – took a lot of power away from Elections Canada – and severely limited their ability to investigate claims of election fraud, among other new limitations imposed upon the agency which is supposed to insure fair and honest elections.  — The Harper ‘Government’ has also had a lot of its party members convicted of Election Fraud – such as setting up “Robo-Calls” to deliver mis-information to voters not likely to vote for their party’s candidates. Quite a few members of the Harper ‘Government’ have been investigated and charged with not just questionable ethics, but outright illegal practices, claiming travel expenses to homes in distant provinces they never visited, claiming residence in various provinces when they actually lived in the Ottawa area, writing $90,000.00 + cheques that looked way too much like a bribe to keep a sitting Senator from squawking about a bill that may or may not have been fraudulently submitted, depending on what the final ruling will be in a situation where Senate Ethics were so vague that teams of lawyers couldn’t agree on what was or wasn’t allowed. And then there was a stream of minor stuff, like submitting fraudulent claims for travel expenses, demanding five star hotel services, submitting incredible invoices like $16.00 for a glass of orange juice – complaining that snacks in their first class airplane compartment were served too cold and on broken crackers.

— But anyway, back in the line, waiting to cast a ballot in the advanced voting line – One woman began to fill out a ‘feedback’ form that was supposed to be feedback on accessibility, one of the volunteers brought a chair over so the woman could sit down if she wanted – Then one senior citizen, wondering why there was only one polling booth pointed to two women sitting at a table with signs up declaring that this table was for Registering to Vote, and wondered what they were doing there. Nobody spoke to the man in the sort of derisive tones I have expected to hear, ( like, “Read the sign, you moron, they’re here to register people who haven’t registered yet.” ) and I was happy to see that everybody was courteous and friendly and nobody was belligerent –

— And there were several young children running around the gym, playing tag, getting down and rolling around on the floor – one girl who was probably about five years old told a boy who around the same age that she wanted him to ask her to marry him. One of the younger voters behind us laughed and quietly said, “Woa – I bet she’s going to be trouble in a few years.”

— We were happy to see that maybe half the people in line, especially those behind us, appeared to be young adults, from the 18 to 24 year old group which has a bad record for turning out to vote – about 38% of those eligible to vote actually voted in the last Federal Election.

— But the line moved more quickly than we expected and we were in and out in less than half an hour. And watching the kids run around and make happy noises while we waited in line was a definite plus.

— One note I might add: Concerning Polls – Two networks: CTV and CBC – one of them says their polls indicate that if everyone voted the way they responded to pollsters – The Liberal Party would win the most seats, about ten more than the second place Conservatives. The other one had opposite results, projecting that the Conservatives would have their candidates elected in about ten more ‘ridings’ than the Liberals would. Both polling outfits count the NDP (New Democratic Party) in 3rd place right now, one network says the NDP has the approval of about 23% of those polled and the other network says the NDP would get about 26.5% of the votes, if everybody actually cast their ballots according to what they told the pollsters. One network says the NDP is gaining support right now, the other one says the NDP is losing support these days.

— Cathi shrugged last night and told me, “The thing about polls – is – nobody thought the NDP had a prayer in the provincial elections in Alberta last spring, and they won that one handily. Nobody saw that coming.”

— And another thing — The Niqab ‘issue’ — This one really baffles me. The Prime Minister is getting so much traction from this non issue that he’s promising to ban Federal Employees from wearing Niqabs or serving anybody who is wearing one, claiming this is a security issue. WHAT??? – People in Quebec have been having fun this since the ruling went down that the Supreme Court said it was a person’s right to vote with her (or his) face covered, as long as the identity of that person was confirmed. The Prime Minister’s Office tried to object to that ruling but got nowhere. One guy in Montreal voted wearing clown make up. A woman somewhere in Quebec voted wearing a burlap sack over her head with eye slits open. There have been others who voted wearing masks.

— I can’t wait to see a Facebook Page: “Idiots Against Niqabs” – Bet’cha it “goes viral” –

& Now a few photos:

Autmn leaves behind the Church Parking lot.
Local people say the Autumn Leaves are late in turning this year. Some blame Climate Change, some shrug it off and say something like, “The weather has been weird this year, it stayed warm longer than usual,” and aren’t ready to ‘buy into’ ‘Global Warming’ or ‘Climate Change’ just yet.
More Autmn leaves on trees beyond the church parking lot.
Here’s another shot of trees beyond the same church parking lot as the leaves are turning.
Work on a section of road that was washed out in floods
This shot, taken on October sixth from the passenger’s seat in our dodge van as we drove Cathi’s daughter back to the airport so she could fly home to the Toronto area, shows a lot of progress in repairing a section of the vital highway between Fredericton and its airport, where water from an unprecedented deluge – rushing in a flooded stream – didn’t feel like waiting to squeeze through a culvert that was much too narrow – The water pushed the culvert, and a lot of ‘earth’ – several meters East – taking the road surface with it. This scene was much more spectacular the day we picked our visitor up from the airport, but I was too busy enjoying her company and didn’t even think of grabbing the camera and recording the newsworthy event. Bad Me….

— I better quit here and post this before I reach 100,000 words in a single post.–,

Grey, Damp Friday – & Why Do Spammers Spam?

Friday, October 9th, 2015 -( 8˚C / 48˚F Grey, damp, threatening rain @ 2:07 pm in Atlantic Canada )- Today would have been John Lennon’s 75th Birthday.

Family of deer in shade on snowy hillside.
Part of The Committee last winter. A telephoto shot using the ‘sports’ setting, I’m happy with the results and I did not have to take half a dozen shots before I got one steady enough.

— The committee put in an appearance this morning. We don’t have any oats yet, I tossed out a couple pieces of bread. -Didn’t see them come find and eat them, they were busy up closer to our neighbours’ feeding station. But when I just checked – somebody got the bread.

— It looks like somebody else tried to sign up for something with a close variation of my name on gmail. This one’s in Massachusetts.

— In an interview on CBC One this morning. Three First Nations people, each supporting one of the ‘three leading contenders’ for prime minister in the election on the 19th – They were asked about issues important to First Nations people, and if they thought of felt that the three parties were paying enough attention to First Nations People and their issues.

— One person said she believed that Tom Mulcair was the only party leader paying attention to First Nations. Another person believed that Justin Trudeau’s promise of making higher education more accessible to everybody earned his vote and one guy from Saskatoon actually liked the Conservatives, believing their propaganda about wanting to lower taxes.

— Sigh, I feel like I’ve been run over by a truck.

— Dreamed Cousin Glenn picked up and read something I was writing and really liked it- He drove us somewhere, we stopped in an out of the way diner where the waitress was peddling herself for extra money. My sister Sharon was there with her kids, and they were between the ages of six and fifteen (?) There was also a young girl there who might have been a friend of my sister’s boys. The waitress covered herself with a table cloth and began catering to my cousin and his slightly beligerant friend. I was sitting at another table with my sister, thinking about what I might say if the waitress approached me as a customer – ( “Nope – sorry – I don’t have any little blue pills with me?” ) And I was hoping the kids wouldn’t be able to figure out what was going on at the other table and/or why the waitress had crawled under the table with a table cloth draped over her back, head and shoulders.

— Sigh.

— Then a weird buzz woke me up. I’m pretty sure that Moe, the cat, heard it too, he looked like he was wondering what had made that noise. I told Cathi about the buzz and she wondered if somebody had called her cell phone. She checked it out as she got ready for work and if somebody had called her they probably realized they’d dialed a wrong number and hung up after one buzz.

— I sat down to write some more, add to one of the novels I have going, and felt like I was being bombarded by weird radiation from the computer monitor – radiation that was designed to confuse and distract and disorient me so I couldn’t concentrate enough to write anything. Then I got distracted by more interviews on the radio.

— When I woke up the computer I was facing the “Sorry – Firefox blew up again – “screen and when I restarted Firefox I was staring at a page that told me that this blog still had 1,234 spam comments that the spam filter hadn’t gone back and deleted like it said it would.

— So I spent something like an hour deleting spam comments and emptying trash.

— There was only one comment in the file that might have looked like its author was a human being but it could have been a pre-written form thing in which a clever little routine inserted the name of the blog and the page or article the comment had latched on to and could have been applied to any page or posting on any blog in the English language, where-as most of the spam is mis-spelled and has words that might have been mis-translated from some other language. Most of them claimed their web sites were variations on “Cheap Stylish Brand Name” Schnarr like Ray-Ban sunglasses or Air Jordan Running Shoes.

— Made me wonder why the people behind those robotic ‘comments’ do what they do. Are they so desperate for money that they spend all the time and effort to program that doo doo and then push return and hope that one or two out of a million blogs the robots find actually allow their nonsense to get through and then maybe if so many bored or curious readers click on their links they might get a penny or two for every hundred clicks?

— Or is it more insidious? Is there hidden malware in their links? – hidden in some kind of control characters that are invisible to almost every browser?

— Ehhh ? Am I better off just plain giving up on the human race, figuring that they’re a bunch of evil greedy beligerant ice holes out to exploit each other?

— Naaaaa –.

— I’ll just go lay down and try to catch up on the sleep I lost a long time ago –,

And The Propaganda Wars Drag On –

Wednesday, 07 October, 2015 -( 17˚C / 63˚F & Sunny, Clear, and Beautifully Warm-ish Autumnal-like @3:30 pm in Atlantic Canada )-

— We got Political Propaganda mail today. The Conservatives want everybody to believe that only a complete Ice-Hole would vote for anybody but a Conservative. But their name-calling, smug posturing, nasty b.s. – even if it only resonates with those who never matured beyond the “I know you are, but what am I?” idiocy – seems to be proving effective. This does not say anything good or ‘nice’ about the Canadian electorate.

— There’s a saying in the U.S.A., “No Republican ever lost an election by underestimating the intelligence of the American voter.” You should read this, “Republicans and Conservatives have made a science out of appealing to the lowest, most base attitudes and habits of our contemporaries. Negative ads have been proven to stick in the minds of the television-viewing public, Television programing has always been aimed at viewers with the intelligence and maturity of an average six year old. Do you feel like you’ve been dumbed down? No, most of us believe everybody else has been dumbed down and we somehow escaped the mind numbing effects of living in today’s toxic environment and toxic social atmosphere.

— Will they get away with it? Will the vitriole spewing, brain dead, negative script reading parrots assume their mob-pleasing postures and attack the right minorities and use their time tested agenda, scape goating anyone who doesn’t quite look like the ruling elite and will all those who have been convinced that they should emulate the powerful in order to get ahead and take a meaningful place in this not-quite-sane, nowhere-near-as-nice-as-we’ve-been-told-it-is world drink the poisoned cool-aid and vote the evil ones into office for another couple years?

— I hope not.

— As often as it looks like the planet is waking up and realize we’ve been lied to, manipulated, pushed around and worse by the puppets who believe they belong to the ruling elite — and we just might be on the verge of throwing away the blinders and taking control of our own minds and hearts and souls and moving our world closer to the ‘Heaven on Earth’ we’ve always known it could be … it also looks like the evil dark liars from hell are laughing all the way to their banks. Have they won another round?

— Dear God, How did we ever free our minds and souls from this sort of nonsense?

— Tune in on a week from next Monday and find out >>—>

— Prayers help, ya know, it’s been scientifically proven. But prayers probably can’t change the votes of brain dead puppets and marionettes.

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!
