O Governo de Israel pediu desculpas públicas pela divulgação de um

vídeo em que um grupo de pessoas, entre as quais a directora-adjunta

do jornal "
Jerusalem Post", Caroline Glick, canta uma versão da música

"We Are The World" com uma letra a gozar com os activistas que seguiam

na frota destinada a Gaza, cujo refrão é "Nós enganamos o mundo, nós

enganamos as pessoas. Vamos fazê-las acreditar que as IDF [Forças de

fim-de-semana passado a jornalistas estrangeiros pelo gabinete de

um pedido de desculpas.

Re: Sealing B.P. Oil Pipe

Dear Joe:
It is most difficult accessing B.P.'s drawings, as reference to the flange located below the sheered top of the well-casing;  it appears there are six (?) bolts securing same.

Suggestion:  Two (or more) of the nuts securing this flange (opposite side) to be removed.  The existing treaded bolts to be either extended or replaced to a lenght of approximately 2 ft. - 3 ft. in order to accommodate the holes / base of a custom plug (small hat design).    The bolted-down hat-plug should no-doubt seal the pipe.

The Rt.Hon and Hon.Messrs Harper and Day,
 
Once again the question of unity is in doubt, so clearly
demonstrated by NL Premier Danny Williams on TV and
in the newspapers. Even as the Rest of Canada  is very
consistent in being one, Quebec has to be satisfied with
"what is there in for me", this political STATE always
wants more or refuses cooperation.
 
The continues political dream to buy support is becoming
a foundation for this country to fall apart, or at least expresses
the need to depart from Quebec, as there is never a way to
satisfy their demand.
 
That makes one wonder "how valuable"  is the public opinion
between elections - we are obvious foreigners in our own land.
Considering past expectations from Quebec would do no better
than isolating itself  from the Rest of the Country.
 
Past Reformers as Prime Minister, Chief of the PMO, President
of the Privy Council does little to satisfy this situation, not now
or in the future as they are closed mouth, living in "never=land".

Subject: Most voters belong to "The Mushy Middle"

Ms. Kate Malloy
Editor, The Hill Times
 
Most voters belong to "The Mushy Middle"
 
Re "Conservatives acknowledge unification of parties on the laft could be 'formidable force'," by Harris Macleod (June 7).
 
While talking about uniting the left (or the right), most commentators tend to forget that the vast majority of voters belong to what Heather Stewart, colmunist for Britain's Observer, calls "The Mushy Middle." She divides the British voters into five groups. She calls the people belonging to the first group "Cash Cosmonauts." These are grotesquely super-wealthy: the big financiers, CEOs of big banks and corporations, the oligarchs and top soccer players (like top NHL players in Canada) who float miles above the rest of us, beyond the stratosphere of mere riches. They have properties around the world, private jets, yachts. The only thing they are interested in poitics is they don't like paying taxes. They would rather have a new Lomborgini than paying taxes for heath care and education. As they are less than one per cent of the population, they don't matter electorally. Yet, the politicians look at them seriously because they cheques they write are the life and blood of their campaigns.
 
The second group of people she calls "The Classically Minted": The original upper class establishment. They are also a tiny proportion of the population. Archytypes are the Queen, the Dukes and Duchess and big property owners. Politics: They generally vote Tory.
 
The third group of people she calls "Pious Professionals": Highly paid doctors, lawyers, top civil servants, Oxbridge dons and medium entrepreneurs who think of themselves as very middle class because they have mortgages. But on the scale of average earnings, they are really rich (earning above $200,000 a year). They live in large Victorian houses and fret about the size of their gardens, especially when just back from holidays in South-west France or Northern Italy. Politics: Floating. Socially liberal, but any left-wing tendencies are kept in check every time they see how much national health insurance they have to pay.
 
People belonging to fourth group are what Heather Stewart calls "The Mushy Middle": This is the vast majority of the British people, who keep the system running. They make, fix, buy and sell things, send their children to local schools, shop at super markets, drive mid-range cars, generally get on as long as life is not too expensive and incomes are steady. Marketing executives and politicians spend a lot of time and money trying to divide the giant middle into distinct demographic segments -- soccer moms and cricket dads. No one really knows what those things mean. Politics: All sorts. Hold an election and find out.
 
The last group of people, she calls The Tracksuit Bottom: The poorest segment of the society (about 15% of the population) that politicians often refer to as "hard to reach." That is an euphemism to mean that the government spends money on them and does not get anything back in votes, because they hardly show up at the polls. They move from one low-paying job to another. You might expect the persistence of an economic underclass in an otherwise rich country like Britain to weigh heavily on the conscience of the nation, but we lighten the burden by caricaturing them as "lazy" and blaming them for their own poverty. Only ultra left-wing politicians use them as proof of exploitation of the poor by the rich.
 
Unless, the right-wingers looking for votes of the rich and the lef-twingers looking for the votes of the poor, right-wing and left-wing parties make no sense when the vast majority of voters (about 80%) belong to the "Mushy Middle."

Subject: Paul Hellyer on monetary and banking reform
From: Richard Priestman

10/6/10
To Friends of Monetary and Banking Reform

In my letter of June 8, I said that Paul hopes we can get a million e-mails or letters sent to our members of Parliament and the prime minister in the two weeks leading up to the G20. He has prepared a letter as a guide to the type of letter you could send and suggests that you send it to 5 of your friends and ask them to send it to 5 of theirs and so on. If everyone participates it will not take long to reach a million.

Here is Paul's letter and a suggestion for the type of letter you could send to your Member of Parliament.

A group of concerned citizens are trying to get a million patriotic Canadians to write to Prime Minister Stephen Harper, Finance Minister Jim Flaherty and their member of Parliament to demand that the private banks monopoly on the creation of money be ended once and for all. Their addresses and e-mail addresses can be found by the following link:
http://canada.gc.ca/directories-repertoires/direct-eng.html
"Find your Member of Parliament" Stephen Harper's is <pm@pm.gc.ca>
Jim Flaherty's is <Flaherty.J@parl.gc.ca >

Many individuals as well as many countries are hard-pressed to meet their interest payments. This is due in large part to the fact that most of our money is created by private banks as debt which has brought many individuals and even counties to the edge of bankruptcy and some over the edge. For more information on this please go to VictoryfortheWorld.net.

A sample letter follows but everyone is encouraged to put the challenge in their own words. The essential points are that leaders must (a) end the private banks monopoly to create money, (b) arrange for their governments to create a significant amount of debt free money to balance their budgets. This will help subsidize the expensive transition from fossil fuels to clean energy in the 10 years or so that we have before it is too late, and (c) reduce bank leverage from the present 20 to 1 to something like 3 to 1. Don t hesitate to remind leaders that governments own the patent to create money, and that there is no reason why they shouldn t exercise that right on behalf of the people.

Unless governments take back some of their power over the creation of money they just won't have the financial flexibility to stop global warming or to respond to the needs of their people as they should.

Finally, we ask everyone who receives this to send it to five of their friends with a request to send it on to five of their friends. If everyone cooperates the campaign should have a real effect. It is obvious that the leaders have no intention of acting on their own, but if they face a grassroots revolt they might just listen.
Cheers and best wishes, Paul Hellyer

SAMPLE LETTER TO MEMBERS OF PARLIAMENT
Dear

The world is drowning in debt. Many individuals as well as many countries are hard-pressed to meet their interest payments. The leaders of the G20 appear quite content to just patch up the present absurd system where private banks have a monopoly to print money. Tragically it is all money that is created as debt. This only exacerbates the hopelessness of the situation.
I want you to actively promote radical changes that would allow governments to take back a significant share of the money creation function and reduce bank leverage dramatically. The legal larceny that allows banks to lend the same money 15 or 20 times has got to end.
Please take a moral stand on behalf of your electors and all humankind. The moral way is the best politics.
Yours sincerely,
your name, address, postal code and telephone number
