This is what happens when our PPP pirate politicians are told to emulate and integrate us with a country where child prostitution thrives (1), kids are bullied and pushed into serving (2) in wars of corporate aggression, where low-level drug patsies are tasered to death while corruption runs rampant throughout the system (3).

All while the corporate media remains silent (4) or pushes their partisan spin on an unsuspecting and ill informed public.

While I'd like nothing better than to be wrong, I think we'll be seeing a lot more real-world anonymous cowards and red-shirted Harperites sprouting up to try and suppress dissidents against the debt-slave mentality and prison-planet judicial system that has taken over our country.

Anonymous - ABC 7 News
July 24, 2008

The pedestrian who was struck by prominent Washington columnist and commentator Robert Novak is in worse shape than first thought, a hospital source tells ABC 7 News.

The Washington Post confirmed the victim's identity to be 66-year-old Don Lilkinquist. A source who saw Lilkinquist said he had appeared somewhat incoherent. Lilkinquist also appeared to have casts on his neck and back and was later X-rayed. The source said a surgical team planned to evaluate him.
<...>
Bono dismissed Novak's assertion that he never saw the struck pedestrian."There was a pedestrian splayed on his windshield -- I don't think there is any way you can miss that."

Afghan pipeline raises security questions
by Travis Lupick
Global Research, July 21, 2008
straight.com

Afghanistan’s ambassador to Canada says NATO’s military mission has
nothing to do with a proposed massive pipeline project that will bring
natural gas to his country’s neighbours. In a phone interview with the
Georgia Straight, Omar Samad said the $7.6-billion pipeline won’t be
finished before Canadian troops are scheduled to leave Afghanistan in
2011.

“So I fail to see what the relationship of this pipeline is with the
Canadian mission,” Samad said from Ottawa.

On June 19, the left-leaning Canadian Centre for Policy Alternatives
published a report questioning the feasibility of the pipeline project,
given the strength of the Taliban insurgency. Samad, however, said that
the Afghan army and local security forces would provide security for the
pipeline. “If there is a need to do something different,” he continued,
“we will discuss it with whomever will be interested to do so, down the
road…beyond the Canadian mission.”

Speeding in Fredericton: Police stings, cameras and Genetic IDs

In response to:

Police monitoring Fredericton construction sites
July 21, 2008
CBC News

Fredericton police are hitting the road in the city to monitor drivers in construction zones.

Police in the New Brunswick capital area began the construction-zone monitoring last week and will be continuing throughout the summer.

Wearing overalls, hard hats and fluorescent vests that say "police," the officers are tracking drivers' speeds using a handheld speed radar device.

While keeping the roads safe is important, it seems a sort of 'if there's time' - not something for primary policing responsibility. (just set up a cameras if it's such a concern) to watch after construction zones throughout the day.

They're always saying that the force is stretched - why put them on guard duty if it's so bad?

Meanwhile, the RCMP are busy failing us on the important stuff too - drugs flow through the borders while able-bodied prisoners and guards are knock themselves out of the useful workforce for no intelligible rationale other than corrupt fiat debt thievery..

Hmmm...

I see no anonymous cowards are willing to step up and flap their gums in defense of the crudely varnished 'truth' of the official war of terror narrative (see http://www.911blogger.com/node/16732).

That's right folks - the FBI was pulled off the investigation October 9th, 2001 - the same day the Afghanistan operation began (1).

Now if we (Canada) knew enough to agree to assist in this matter, it shouldn't be simply the role of conspiracy theorists to question the body of evidence for the cave dweller conspiracy theory.

Simply Google 'WTC 7' for videos - if you can believe that happened due to fire, well - then I'd argue you've got a major comprehension problem.

I think the only way the kids will buy this story when we teach it to them in history class is if you pump them full of Donald Rumsfeld's latest offerings (2).

"We'll know our disinformation program is complete when everything the American public believes is false." - William Casey, CIA Director (1981-1987)

P.S. - Hardly anyone is claiming here that we knew what the situation was - but those who should have have some explaining to do.

Many of us are simply asking them to do just that, including NDP MP Libby Davis (3).

Behaviorism, Religion and Reality

Comments on"Should Dr. Henry Morgentaler be given the Governor General award???"

Fred said...

Dan F, you missed my point about Skinner's Box. What I am saying is that because mistakes were made and are NOW being acknowledged regarding church errors doesn't mean that those same attitudes persist today any more than behaviourists such as yourself still believe in using Skinner's Box in 2008. No question but that mistakes were made, but that doesn't mean that people who made mistakes in the past are condemned to live them over and over again; otherwise, contemporary behaviourists would have no credibility whatsoever.

--------------------


Dear Fred,

Alright, I reviewed my response and I was a bit hasty going along with your premise.

Which appears to equating behaviorism going out of fashion (via scientific development) with some of the churches in some of the countries relenting from hiding and surreptitiously moving pedophile priests around until they were hit with massive lawsuits.

Now that and the native scandal were big reasons why I wanted to leave the United church in the early nineties, (not to mention the minister, Brad Little) breaking the church up (and soliciting the wealthier members to follow) over his fear of gays, so I'm a might touchy on church scandals.

While we both seem to be able to admit that what has been done in the name of God and Science in the past was wrong, why am I the only one who can fathom that they might still be up to no good?

That's the problem with faith, brother - it'll blind you if you let it - and in that state, your shepherd had better be leading you in the right direction.

(i.e. not towards Armageddon, not hiding massive social injustice, not abetting fiat rape, all of it)

Organized religion is to Jesus what Fox news is to Reality - both chose from it what they like, but the end products bear very little resemblance to the originals.

Psychology & UFOs on Maritime Morning

UFOs: The Secret History — David Cherniak’s feature-length documentary which airs on the History Channel will be my special guest at 11am on Monday on “Maritime Morning”.

It is interesting to see the range of approaches to the UFO phenomenon. UFOs have become something on a Rorschach/inkblot test, wherein people read into them what they themselves want to see; it is a projection.

In Medieval times, people saw religious “miracles”, and offered these visions as proof of God’s guiding hand.

<...>

There is a tremendous human vanity in the notion that we will never know everything, that the human spirit is ineffable; that the human spirit is too grand. Maybe it is.

But what if that human vanity of the spirit is false? Perhaps that is what scares us.

---
  1. Dan Fitzgerald Says:

    “The psychological dimensions of the UFO “mystery” remains an area where very little academic study has been done. ”

    Unfortunately, the mechanisms for confirming whether individual UFO sightings are real or imagined, we’d need less restriction on what should be public data (i.e. open access to radar data).

    It seems the government is too busy taping everyone’s phone (a true statement that would have seemed paranoid not so long ago) to look into it.

    At the same time, we’ve spent a lot of time and money at the official level trying to see whether there is life on other planets - pretty strange if you ask me.

Spinking about EFI on Irving Central

Reaching for Mediocrity
Kit - Spink about it
July 08, 2008

There were three articles in the Daily Gleaner today (Tuesday 8 July) on the EFI debacle.

The first was an editorial letter from professor Robertson at Mount A, that says the Government's approach to fixing the literacy woes by killing EFI was and is wrong.

Then the Editorial basically accuses Lamrock of striving for mediocrity rather than excellence in education. (An almost 180 change from their previous praise of this forward thinking, loquacious politician)

"French Immersion isn't getting the required results in many parts of the province"

Oh - and the lunatics who instituted the current zero-tolerance, prison-planet, standardized testing model into our school system had nothing to do with it?

Now we use their tests to 'certify' whether the proper results are being attained?

Kelli and baby Bilderberg Graham would have us buy up Bushite !Ignite learning systems (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ignite!) and you can forget teaching those kids science in a rational manner.

I've had a few younger people show me the way they were taught to divide numbers in math - and it's the most ridiculous thing you've ever seen - they don't even know why they're doing it that way.

And as far as stopping streaming - totally ridiculous - how can you possibly teach so that all levels have time to comprehend but not so long as they get bored and frustrated?

Getting rid of anything in the name of producing some rigged measure of success (yeah, the average score will probably go up if they're learning in English, initially) seems like a rather blurry vision of education.

Why not expand the French opportunity for the under served (according to Lamrock et al.) English children? It wouldn't have anything to do with giant fake debt pyramids rising and falling around them, would it?

1. One of things to celebrate is the freedom we have in this country. Like the freedom of speech that allows people like Spinks and I to say what we want on a blog. It even allows others to be offensive. Thats why you should be following this story, here. This is just the latest installment in a battle for our freedom that is being fought below the surface. Fire. Them. All.

2. The Daily Gleaner ran an article on the front page today (Saturday) called "Spelling out Changes to our French Language programs". The whole tone of the article, with the exception of the last paragraph, came across like EFI was totally dead and that this was simply justifying the inevitable... Lamrock has made his decision and thats that. Silly me, I thought we were still in consultation?

---------------
My response:
"2. The Daily Gleaner"

See, that's where you lost me, kit - why would you sit around discussing the Irving public policy?

1. It's not going to change for our sake.

2. They control the public debate through several propaganda outlets (including this blog).

3. The economic and philosophical foundations underlying the article will be at best secretive, at worst - well... let's hope we don't wind up there.

So, carefully consider the downsides of any Irving policy - the current economic pitfalls are much deeper and wider than the public has any credence for.

Slashing teaching and education platforms is kind of a desperate, pirate move to keep the shady ship afloat for another few years, I'd say.

When what this economy and house need are some solid cleansing out - stop the fiat bandits before it's too late.

On science and fear of uranium.

N.B. establishes strict uranium exploration rules
July 4, 2008 - CBC News

New government regulations in New Brunswick will limit uranium exploration and staking of claims.

The province announced on Friday that exploration is now banned on municipal land and in watersheds and fields with private wells. Claims will also not be allowed to be staked within 300 metres of private homes.

The new regulations are retroactive and exploration in previous claims in areas that are now banned will not be able to continue.
<...>
There's no scientific basis for the public fear of uranium exploration but mining companies do recognize the government must calm its citizens, said Dave Plant, spokesman for Canadian Manufacturers and Exporters, which is representing several companies.
-----------

My Response
"There's no scientific basis for the public fear of uranium exploration"

While in a perfect world, uranium might be mined safely, the industry's historical record indicates that it will not.

Just because the field of economics choses not to dwell on greed, and the fields of psychology and psychiatry have not fully elucidated the cognitive biases / neural underpinnings of psychopathic kleptocracy, does not imply that the populate is wrong in trying to shut the gates on this toxic endeavor.

The current ruling is designed to placate the only slightly worried - the mines will come, and only God will be able to help the future uranium mutants.

My comment:

God help the American people.

(To the free men of North America)
My dear Countrymen,

THE art used by the Ministerial advocates to persuade you, that the duty imposed by Act of Parliament, on tea imported here, will be paid in London, contrary to the express design and meaning of that act; and that the duty thus paid, can prove in no shape detrimental to your rights, is the occasion of this address to you.

Every American believes, that Parliament have no right to tax America; and of course, that they cannot, of right, impose any duty on any article of her trade, to be paid on its arrival here: But some have doubted, whether the payment of the American duty in London, before the tea is shipped, although the same duty must be charged on the tea, and be afterwards collected from the Americans, can be considered as a Parliamentary tax on America.

It cannot be denied, that G. B. has a right to tax at any rates she thinks proper, her exports to every clime which is blessed with a free trade, and which is not forced to obey her naval mandates; such taxes would notwithstanding be impolitic and useless. But to admit that she can of right oblige the Americans, whose importation of many articles of life is confined to her alone, to pay any duties she may impose on such necessaries, is to give her a right to strip you of every thing you possess.

At this rate, Great-Britain need be at no loss to raise on you, all that her luxury and corruption can dictate--she may lay a tax on such articles as your climate and infant situation have made necessary to you, and which she can prevent your purchasing at a foreign market; and her American revenue scheme will be compleated. For the sale in America being secured, the tax is also secured: And unless you have resolution to disdain the purchase of whatever may be thus burthened, let its importance to you be what it may, you will soon be reduced to a situation more miserable than that of the Athenians under their thirty tyrants.

To this it may be said, "that G. B. has for many years, exercised this claim by the duties she has imposed on cambricks, lawns, lead, woolcards, &c. &c. and that it is now too late to object to the payment of such duties, the precedent being already established."

When many of those duties were laid, America considered them as regulations of trade, some how or other beneficial to the parent state, and in no high degree injurious to herself.--As such she submitted to them, without considering the dangerous precedent they were designed to establish. In the same light she considered the act of 4 Geo. 3 [the fourth year of George III's reign], imposing duties on wine, &c. and might have admitted this act as constitutional and necessary, had not the memorable Stamp Act, of 1765, brought on the day of political knowledge in America.

Whatever taxes may have been imposed on America, while she lay dozing in the lap of maternal security, they cannot now be brought in proof of Parliament's right to tax you. If they were unconstitutional in the beginning, which they undoubtedly were, they are unconstitutional at this day, and as such ought to be strenuously opposed--and, if through ignorance or inattention, you have paid such unjust impositions, it cannot, from thence be inferred, that you ought to pay them forever; and patiently submit to every burthen which Parliament in future may think proper to lay upon you. . . .

The Ministerial manoeuvre of sending tea to America, you are told, was designed to assist the India Company in the sale of their tea, an immense quantity of which they have on hand; and to enable them to pay their debts.

If this was the case, and fair play was meant to America, why was not the act of Parliament imposing the duty of 3d. sterling on tea, imported into America, repealed? an act which was the principal cause of the India Company's distress; and which will prevent an effectual remedy, so long as it continues in force--For if the duty is continued, and America is not forced to pay it, it is evident that the India Company, whom the Ministry are so desirous to oblige, are made dupes to a pretended favour.

The truth is, that Company were to be gratified at the expence of America, who from the first dawning of this manoeuvre, has been marked as the beast of burthen. But I trust, that the same public spirit, and virtuous self denial, which influenced your conduct under former impositions, will manifest itself on the present occasion--That you will not suffer the glorious title of American to be sullied, by a servile obedience to an act of parliament, which, executed as it may be, by the payment of a duty here or in Britain, will, in either case, establish, irrevocably establish, the dangerous claim of parliament to tax you without mercy.

All Europe, nay the whole world, are now attentive to your cause, and have, with wonder, seen and heard of the decent, manly and determined conduct of the Freemen of America, in a situation the most delicate and interesting; and they still expect at your hands a manifestation of the like glorious behaviour on the present alarming occasion. The payment of the duty in London, will not make it less a tax on you, than if it were paid here; and of course, not less an object of your detestation and opposition. Americans must refuse to purchase the noxious weed; and such refusal will make it infamous and dangerous for any man, or any set of men, to aid or abet its introduction and sale. This is the measure Americans ought to pursue--this the only means to save your country from destruction.

MUCIUS.
