There is nothing edifying about the sight of a minister flailing when he knows
there's blood in the water, and that some of it is bound to be his

Subject: "On Voluntary Servitude"

Hello, Joe;

Some of your readers might be interested in my introduction to and excerpts from "On Voluntary Servitude" – Catholic Resistance Theory from 16th-century France.   The piece is a bit long, but the quotations from the text are apt – and quite suited to the tenor of our times, one way or another.

You can find it here:  http://www.joergedyrkton.blogspot.com/2011/10/on-voluntary-servitude-catholic.html

Thanks,

Joerge Dyrkton, D.Phil.

Subject: [Fwd: Re Sentences for Persons Convicted in Connection With the Vancouver Riots]
From: John Anderson

Hello Joe;

I thought your readers might be interested in the following letter, sent to the Globe and Mail a few minutes ago.

Best Regards, John A.

Dear Editor:

Your article in today's G&M highlighted the possibility of light sentences for convicted participants in the Vancouver riots.

But what I find especially egregious is the likelihood that, having completed their sentences, convicted rioters can then apply for and obtain judicial pardons, thereby suppressing any public record of their participation in these riots, in effect getting a "Get Out of Jail Free" card".

It is because of cases such as this that our current system for obtaining judicial pardons needs drastic reforms.  In particular, we need a system wherein the granting of a pardon receives the same public judicial scrutiny as the original conviction.

Subject: NDP in crosshairs

Joe,
May I recommend for everyone’s enlightenment http://www.ottawasun.com/2011/10/31/ndp-in-crosshairs.  It is a chilling revelation of what the Conservative Research Group (CRG) is up to.  Regular followers of the Daily Digest decry the savagery partisan politics has sunk to in Canada.  Now we know why.

Subject:Fwd: Veteran's National Day Of Protest: 5 Days to go
Date: Tue, 1 Nov 2011 13:24:04 -0400

Joe--I respect our Veterans and have written many letters and emails to governments in support of the Veterans. 

My father was conscripted shortly after I was born.  I don't remember anything about that time but have read his letters to mom and me recently and realize that no one can imagine the agony of separation that war forces us into.  Our governments use our young men and women as cannon fodder and then choose to ignore them when they come back home unless it is in a coffin then they can be oh so supportive, right down to printing a coin.  but as usual the real government actions are hidden.  Remember Matt Stopford?   And he is just one of many that have had to suffer the greed of government.  These actions prove more than ever that Veterans are not worth anything to government once their term of service is over. 

Sadly the government lies to go to war are just that--lies.  Like Libya, Afghanistan and Iraq the governments choose to go to war at the direction of the controllers.  Canada was under no threat from anyone--in WWI or WWII. 

I agree we need to do more than just wear a poppy but sadly our governments don't listen to us so that is what we do.  I always ask people to remember never to let it happen again.  I imagine that that is what this economic crunch is all about--young people without jobs are desperate and will join the military just to earn a living.  Sadly the governments don't want them living.  The only good soldier is a dead on in their eyes.

As I have stated many times I am ashamed of my country and am glad after reading this article that people are doing something about it.  I wonder how long before a Veteran standing at a protest (that is what these gatherings will be named in our msm) in Canada gets shot in the head???

Oo-rah
by Fred Reed

While soldiers quickly come to hate their assigned enemies, as do fighting cocks, they also know that what they are doing will not play well back home. The entrail-dripping gut-shot, a woman deening over a mound of red mush that is no longer precisely her child – these could interfere with the flow of contracts. Consequently militaries try furiously to suppress photographs of those they torture and mutilate, to package routine atrocities as "isolated incidents," to keep pictures of garishly altered soldiers off the pages of newspapers. The extreme sensitivity suggests moral uneasiness, oo-rah or not. During Vietnam, the damning photos poured out. The controlled press of today poses no similar problem.

Prime Minister Stephen Harper has steadfastly opposed 'Robin Hood'-style international taxation, saying it penalizes Canada's banks for their good behaviour during the recent recession.  But ordinary Canadians must pay taxes on purchases of goods and services every day of the year.  So why should big financial institutions escape a levy on their own day-to-day transactions?  A financial transaction tax would dampen speculative activity, raise urgently needed funds to tackle food shortages and climate change in the Third World, and help avoid government austerity programs at home that predominantly hurt the poor.
