Dear NaturalNews readers, Remember when we exposed General Mills selling "blueberry pomegranate" cereals that contained no blueberries nor pomegranates? Well now General Mills looks to be sued by CSPI over "strawberry" fruit snacks that contain no strawberries!

Subject: In redrawing the House, Harper plays to Quebec   DD

Why do we need more pigs at the trough that would just do what those already there do?  They cost us billions in pay, pension, perks etc while obeying the PM, not us.  Why don't they argue rep by citizen input rather than rep by pop?  All this shows is that politicians can count but they can't listen.  'Alberta, BC and Ontario are all seriously under-represented'?????  CANADA IS SERIOUSLY UNDER-REPRESENTED!!!  We elect thes people to represent us but they do nothing of the kind.  By adding more seats to the House we are only creating jobs with no benefit to the employers of those job seekers. 
Only a fool keeps doing the same thing over and over again hoping to get it right.  Why don''t they step back and look for the real problems in our so called democracy.  We are under-represented--but not in numbers, but in actions.  Until we get what we pay for we don't need more clowns in the circus.

Subject: Opposition blasts 'ideological crusade' against wheat board

The CPC don't have to eliminate the CWB, they just have to remove the mandatory clause from it--so that farmers can make their own choices what to do with their product.  The effects of the CWB on farmers is never really discussed, they just howl about foreign intervention.  Anyone that doesn't know that Cargill etc already own the CWB is dreaming. 

The CWB makes it so difficult for farmers but this is never discussed.  In driving around the area of Alberta I was from I saw mounds of grain in fields because the farmer's grain bins were full and the CWB wasn't shipping.  Tons of grain were lost because of this.  The deer, the mice etc were happy but the farmers were losing their crops and their incomes.  Farmers have been put in leg irons for donating a bushel of their own grain to an American 4H club.  Farmers are terrified to sell their grain to a neighbour for fear the CWB finds out.  Is this free enterprise in Canada?  If so, why don't provinces East of Manitoba have to belong to it also? 

The government is using this closure as a way to 'show that they care for farmers'.  Nothing could be further from the truth.  Remember Percy Schmeiser?  The Liberals destroyed him in their wild ride to support Monsanto.

From: Ron Thornton

Hi Joe:

The latest Digest brings to mind the simple fact that the Liberals and the Premiers in place when the Constitution was revamped, have put in place a most amateurish document that does nothing in providing true representative government to our land. They even managed to guarantee it will never will. While New York and Pennsylvania can actually lose seats in the American House of Representatives, our brain children actually locked in minimums for each province. PEI will perpetually receive its no less than 4 seats, Quebec its 75, and the only way to combat this is to expand the House of Commons to more and more ridiculous numbers in order that those provinces growing in population might have anything near..or less distant...from the representative they deserve. We know Quebec will never be satisfied with less (forget American styled representation in the Senate), so our hands are tied.

The Occupiers have received a nod from Barack Obama...and from the US Nazi Party, Community Party, China, Iran, and other hot beds of democratic reform. Am I the only one a bit concerned that those who would do us harm (Obama a questionable exception) think this a good thing?

So, George W. Bush is a war criminal, eh? Bullshit. Were Roosevelt and Churchill? How about Harry Truman lighting up the sky twice over Japan? Does that thinking make me an enemy of the common people? Well, considering I AM one of the common people, I rather doubt it.

I was asked to imagine if the NDP was in charge.  I hope they might buy better war planes than the trash the current government is considering and to make it a lot less attractive for those to ship jobs overseas. However, I am afraid they would also waste billions on the fantasy that climate change is caused by man rather than deal with the reality of how to cope or meet the challenge. As for the Occupiers...I agree that too much effort has been spent allowing the rich to become richer, but many of the 99% have also been allowed to be financially reckless (and many south of the line are paying for their greed).  The world of finance needs to be less creative in producing loopholes and more productive in actually stimulating growth for all.

Don't know anyone who'd dispute the last two sentences.

Subject: Demonstrators according to Lorimer Rutty

DD
 
Read with great interest the piece by Lorimer Rutty   Nov 18.
 
Finally someone has stumbled onto the truth, you betcha.
 
Mr. Rutty display remarkable insight into these people who are protesting about what amounts to nothing.
 
Whiners, whiners, right on, right on Mr  Rutty.
 
You make such great sense, I honestly wish you would go down to the country of our dearest friends.,  whose Government seems to understand these people that you practically described as scum,lazy scum, never worked a day in their lives scum, Whining scum.

The Republicans know how they will deal with these creeps, if only they could grab the levers of power, as Mr Harper has done in Canada.One thing we know how to do in Canada is to vote in the right type of Government.  Oh yes some people say our rulers are heartless, or brainless. Of course that is just sour grapes. Soooo Mr. Rutty,I would propose and even donate money towards your expenses, to travel to The Great United States of America, pin down the scum protesters and get them to see, that just because millions of them have lost their jobs, millions lost their houses, millions of them in danger of losing their pensions.

So What eh, Mr Rutty?    Go down their sir, and beseech them to see that they are  overreacting terribly. Whining over such trifling, little problems.  I  just have the feeling that a person of your stature and intelligence could turn the whole mess completely around, P D Q.    Do it Sir. Do it for all of us.

Subject: the 'leaders' of NATO must be charged with war crimes.

The Destruction Of Sirte, By Patrick O'Connor
 If at any point during Libya's civil war Gaddafi's forces had done what the TNC fighters are doing now,
there would have been blanket demands of charges for war crimes and crimes against humanity.

"Collateral damage" is what it's called, isn't it?
===================================
From: The Natroses

Well Joe, the old talking points are once again making their rounds, to do battle with the occupiers. Lorimer has one, is a poor copy, as well as misleading, twisting the words of old pastor, that was more than likely Conservative to his bones.
"1. You cannot legislate the poor into prosperity, by
    legislating the wealth out of prosperity.
2. What  one person receives without working for,
    another person must work for without receiving.
3. The government cannot give to anybody, anything that
    the government does not first  take from somebody else.
4. You cannot multiply wealth by dividing it!
5. When half of the people get the idea that they do not
    have to work because the other half is going to take care
    of them, and when the other half gets the idea that it does
    no good to work, because somebody else is going  to get
    what 'they' work for, that is the beginning of the end of any
    nation."
The origin of the words above come from a man named Rogers. "However, the quote is not from Norman Rockwell. In fact, the words, billed in the message as "possibly the 5 best sentences you'll ever read" are an altered and restructured derivative of a piece originally penned by Baptist pastor, author and political commentator, Dr. Adrian Pierce Rogers. Dr. Rogers died in November 2005.

Norman Rockwell
Norman Rockwell

The misattributed quote is often tacked on to a bitingly satirical image of US President Obama painting a telling "self portrait" that circulates via political blogs and forums. The image is a parody of a painting by Norman Rockwell. When the image is included in the message, at least a few viewers would understand that the Rockwell reference relates more to the image rather than to the unattributed quote included underneath. However, in versions of the message that circulate without this image, the Rockwell reference appears to relate directly to the quoted words. The original Adrian Rogers piece, which was part of a 1984 sermon, and was also included in another work titled "Ten Secrets for a Successful Family" is quoted below:

You cannot legislate the poor into freedom by legislating the industrious out of it. You don't multiply wealth by dividing it. Government cannot give anything to anybody that it doesn't first take from somebody else. Whenever somebody receives something without working for it, somebody else has to work for it without receiving. The worst thing that can happen to a nation is for half of the people to get the idea they don't have to work because somebody else will work for them, and the other half to get the idea that it does no good to work because they don't get to enjoy the fruits of their labor. " http://www.hoax-slayer.com/norman-rockwell-moment.shtml

His words have been taken out of context mostly by the extreme right, to defend the sorry state of capitalism and extreme right ideology. Lorimer, one day you might just get a little tired of picking up the inflated rates already being paid on such niceties on house insurance, cable TV, or even the ever rising hydro bill, that is predicted by another 50 % around the year 2014 or so. One of the warnings coming from our own governments, as well as the big power producers. Apparently the billions of profit being made is still not good enough. Now the original quote, is just fine to take it to the 99 percenters, because most can relate to it, and the sorry piece of  dribble that Lorimer supplied, is the kind of stuff that would make them irate and at the very least, another one to be reeducated and debrief.
A video, of the latest star, a Marine of the 99 percenters. After watching the video, it makes you want to go up and salute the flag, and hit the streets to join the 99 percenters.

"A war economy is one built on the premise of perpetual war, making things that wear out and blow up, providing short-term employment – as opposed to a peace-time economy that devotes it resources to making things that people can actually use to better their lives, thereby perpetuating employment and prosperity rather than destruction.
Will fighting terrorists "over there" by invasion and occupation and the inevitable "collateral damage" succeed? General McChrystal called it "insurgent math, for every innocent person you kill, you create 10 new enemies."
Non-military spending produces far more bang for the buck:
Each billion dollars of tax revenue allocated to tax cuts for personal consumption generates approximately 10,800 jobs.
Investing the same amount in the military creates 8,500 jobs.
Investing it in health care yields 12,900 jobs; in education, 17,700 jobs; in mass transit, 19,800 jobs; and in construction for home weatherization and infrastructure, 12,800 jobs."

Just thought I should put some humor in it and the link where there is a lot more signs. Maybe some who opposes the 99 percenters, and rather work to support the Bay Street gang, the gang of the Banks, as well as the big insurance companies, and so forth, can actually find a picture that works for them. If anything, your beef is not with the 99 percenters, but with governments' policies and run away greed of globalization that went berserk on steroids.
