Dear Joe:
 
No one wants to admit this, but Peter MacKay took the Cormorant helicopter & Challenger Jets b/c he was crying again at the fishing lodge that weekend b/c Belinda Stronach rejected him again. This time even Peter's dog wouldn't speak to him, well he spoke to Peter, but only after Peter fried him up some delicious Atlantic sockeye. rory.

If according to George Jonas, Trudeau's "brave new progressive-liberal-socialist" cultural mosaic is such a failed social experiment, then pray tell why has Conservative Prime Minister David Cameron just praised Canada by saying: "The way in which you have integrated people from many different backgrounds into a mature democracy is a model from which we can all learn."

Re:  A referendum on capital punishment, Friday, September 23, 2011
http://www.torontosun.com/2011/09/23/a-referendum-on-capital-punishment

I find it ironic that those who rail against the vile crimes of serial killers also believe that execution, a most cruel and unusual punishment, is the solution. There is no proof executions are effective deterrents but they send the message that premeditated and cold-blooded state killing is permissible. Convictions can me made in error and potentially innocent people can be killed. Relatively few other developed countries impose the death penalty. Adopting capital punishment would put us in an exclusive league, alongside the top executioners -- China, Iran, Saudi Arabia, Pakistan, Iraq, and alas, the United States of America.

Copy to : Mr. Terry Glavin, Author of Come From the Shadows and This Ragged Land (please forward): You are right that compromise with the Taliban in Afghanistan will lead to capitulation. Soviet-backed Najibullah was trying to reach some compromise with the Mujahedeen who hanged him after storming Kabul. It must be understood that foreign troops cannot protect a regime for long, only an Afghan army can if it had the means.
 
By taking up combat, U.S. and Canada might have replicated failed Soviet mission
 
Re "Capitulation sold as compromise," by Terry Glavin (Sept. 21).
 
Terry Terry Glavin is right when he says capitulation in Afghanistan is being sold as compromise with the Taliban. However, the U.S.-led mission in Afghanistan is destined to fail when the Americans took up the combat to defeat the Taliban instead of helping the Afgahans from the outset to build a strong Afghan army. The U.S. seems to have replicated the earlier failed Soviet Afghan mission.
 
When 80,000 (later raised to 120,000) Soviet troops invaded Afghanistan to stop the fanatical Mujahedeen from toppling the pro-Soviet regime in Kabul, the Soviet commanders were supremely confident that they could defeat the rebels themselves. The Soviet forces were backed up by fighter-bombers and helicopter gunships and spearheaded by mechanized infantry divisions in full combat gear. Rag-tag Mijahedden had little  chance against such a military machine.
 
But the Mujahedeen resorted to hit-and-run attacks, using Pakistan's tribal areas as staging posts. The only way the Soviets could stop such attacks was to takeout their bases inside Pakistan. But Pakistan was an American ally and any attack on Pakistan would have triggred a direct confrontation with the U.S. which was already supplying the insurgents with lethal weapons. As a result, the Soviet troops were obliged to fight an ineffective war and forced to withdraw after suffering heavy casualties. But they did not leave behind a strong Afghan army and the pro-Moscow regime fell within two years of the Soviet withdrawal.
 
Now as then, the Taliban are carrying out attacks on the U.S. and coalition forces, using Pakistan's tribal areas as staging posts and although Pakistan is still an American ally, it will never allow the Americans to invade tribal areas to destroy Taliban bases. In fact, Pakistan's military establishment is trying to prop up the Afghan Taliban in its proxy war with India in the same way the U.S. propped up the Mujahedeen in its proxy war with the Soviet Union. And, like the Soviet-backed Najibullah regime, the U.S.-backed Karzai regime is likely to be ousted after the American withdrawal. Like the Soviets, the Americans might have missed an opportunity to create a viable Afghan army to stand up against the Taliban. They might have replicated the failed Soviet Afghan mission to the point.

 fas·cism

‚[fash-iz-uh[] m]
noun
1. ( sometimes initial capital letter [] ) a governmental system led by a dictator having complete power, forcibly suppressing opposition and criticism, regimenting all industry, commerce, etc., and emphasizing an aggressive nationalism and often racism.

Joe--the only difference between fascism and corporatocracy is that in a fascist state the dictator has all the power--in a corporatocracy it is the corporations that dictate to the dictator who then has fascist powers to institute what his/her controllers demand.  And we know who controls most corporations so that is why our fascist 'leader' bows to israel?

Joe--restraint by whom--the taxpayer?  Obviously those wasting our money have shown no restraint in spending our money as we see with the leaks of MP spending in the last few days.  They are arrogat greedy useless wastes of skin and will blame us for everything that happens while they keep slurping from the trough like the pigs(no insult meant to pigs) they are.  What really scares me is that they are trying even less to hide their entitlement mentality.  Seems we pay high salaries and expenses to get the 'best spenders?

Subject:  Armed Troops Burn Down Homes, Kill Children To Evict Ugandans In Name Of Global Warming...Transnational corporations, in league with western
 governments and offshore banks, have seized upon the climate change scam to carry out genocidal policies....

The Uganda story is devastating.  Money is indeed the god of those that control our every breath.  There is nothing on the planet that is not controlled by those who worship money.  Everything is manipulated to give themselves the highest profits in spite of what it does to the average person.  They will kill all of us in the blink of an eye if they think it will be profitable to themselves.  Remember--"whoever controls the money controls the country".  It may not be with bombs etc, but they are killing our minds and shortly our bodies when we reach the saturation point of the poisons they are spreading.  And we let them.  Can we become any more evil?

This is from the article.  We are killing Libyans for their oil etc and Ugandans are being murdered and evicted from their land, to starve to death, to prevent GW from the use of oil?  Insanity doesn't begin to cover the issue.

But it's not just biofuels, a product of global warming alarmism, that are unleashing a genocide against black people in poorer countries, it's the whole anti-development mantra embraced by climate change activists that is being enforced by supranational organizations like the World Bank and the IMF in the name of reducing carbon dioxide, the evil life-giving gas that plants breathe and humans exhale.

Armed Troops Burn Down Homes, Kill Children To Evict Ugandans In Name Of Global Warming
Neo-colonial land grabs carried out on behalf of World Bank-backed British company

Paul Joseph Watson
Prison Planet.com
Friday, September 23, 2011

Armed troops acting on behalf of a British carbon trading company backed by the World Bank burned houses to the ground and killed children to evict Ugandans from their homes in the name of seizing land to protect against "global warming," a shocking illustration of how the climate change con is a barbarian form of neo-colonialism
The evictions were ordered by New Forests Company, an outfit that seizes land in Africa to grow trees then sells the "carbon credits" on to transnational corporations. The company is backed by the World Bank and HSBC. Its Board of Directors includes HSBC Managing Director Sajjad Sabur, as well as other former Goldman Sachs investment bankers....(emphasis added) [read full article at link below] http://www.prisonplanet.com/armed-troops-burn-down-homes-kill-children-to-evict-ugandans-in-name-of-global-warming.html

Global food crisis: the US speculators playing with our daily bread
As food prices reach record highs, how much is the speculation in agricultural commodities to blame?
...
"When billions of dollars of capital is put to work in small markets like agricultural commodities, it inevitably increases volatility and amplifies prices – and if financial flows amplify prices of food stuffs and energy, it's not like real estate and stocks. When food prices double, people starve ," Masters said.
The UN rapporteur on the Right to Food, Olivier de Schutter, added his weight to Masters' side of the debate at the end of last year when he concluded a speculative bubble was responsible for a significant part of the food price rises....(emphasis added)
