Why Vic Toews Laws are Worse Than Gun Laws

Posted on by

Stephen Harper, Vic Toews, Jason Miller and the rest of the lying Conservatives would have us believe that the Gun Registry (now dead) is the incarnation of all evil because it enables the tracking of a very specific group of people and their buying habits.

Well guess what?  The proposed legislation from the Conservatives will do exactly that, but for every Canadian and in much more detail.  And without having to tell you they’re monitoring you.

Take that, gun nuts.  You’re being tracked whether you like it or not.  Unfortunately, the Conservatives are pretending they’re on your side, but they just sold you out with something FAR more worse.

Ooops.  Did they forget to tell all of us this?  That they’ve introduced what amounts to something way more invasive than the gun registry for every single Canadian, despite our opposition to it?

And what bugs me most?  Stephen Harper hides behind his ministers avoiding taking any criticism himself.  It’s shameful that he’s leading this country.

C’mon people:  tell the Conservatives to stay out of our lives.

Sign the Petition now.

A Brief History of Plutocracy

Plutocracy = rule by the elite.

From ‘the Rothschild Model’ to the ‘Rise of Corporations’ as methods by which we are all fueling perpetual war.

This is 26 minutes well spent.

Of course, not all of it should be taken as gospel, but we need to understand his last comments as they relate to the ‘market’.  There is a supra-national group of organizations that are not subject to any democratic input.

I also like the solution:  don’t fight the beast.  Stop feeding it.

Global Research ‘2011 Year of the Dupe’: An Awesome Read

Posted on by 0 comment

Global Research has released their 2011 Year of the Dupe article and it’s well worth reading for anyone that wants to know about what really happened in 2011.

The essence of the article addresses America’s expansion around the world and extension of hegemonic corporate powers universally.

It explores the deceit that’s being used to fool us into believing that a revolution is happening worldwide, while it also exposes the abyssmal coverage of the #occupy movement that occurred in North America and elsewhere.

Go ahead.  Click through, print off and grab a coffee and enjoy some truth for the holidays!

A Sad Day For The World

Posted on by 0 comment

In the US, supposed leader of democracy worldwide, a contentious piece of legislation has finally passed and is now law.

Barack Obama has abandoned any sign of Hope and Change and has instead given in to Fear and Paranoia as he allowed the National Defense Authorization Act to go through.

This Act will allow the American military to arrest any American citizen without cause and without warrant if there’s even the most remote whiff of ‘terrorist’ smell to them.

Once arrested, people can be detained indefinitely.

These are basic principles that were fought against in the American War of Independence.

And now they’re gone.

And if they’re gone in the US – the birthplace of modern democracy – don’t expect better treatment elsewhere.

It won’t be long folks.  Arbitrary and multiple arrests will be coming.
