To achieve objectives that Canadians want, such as the reduction of
poverty, the protection of the environment, and the creation of jobs, the
government has a tool called the budget. And depending on contractionary
or expansionary measures required and applied, the budget balance will
float up or down.  As Canadian-born economist John Kenneth Galbraith
explains: "If there is idle capacity and unemployment, the
government must spend more that it receives in taxes.........there is no
merit at all in a policy that just balances income and outgo, none
whatever."
But at a time when 1.35 million Canadians are jobless and additional
stimulus is required, Finance Minister Jim Flaherty wants the government
not just to balance but to receive more than it spends, so that when the
2015 election comes he can dangle tax reduction goodies.  In
Flaherty's machinations to re-elect his Conservatives, Canada's
unemployed are just sacrificial pawns.

While Canada's small disaster relief team (DART) will no doubt make a
unique contribution in the Philippines, the question naturally arises:
Why does the United Nations not have its own standing rapid reaction
force when large-scale catastrophes strike? Proposals for this service
have been well developed by Canadian academics and NGOs. In addition to
providing humanitarian and disaster assistance and an array of civilian
teams specializing in environmental services, human rights and conflict
resolution, such a service could also include military and police units
sufficient to restore law and order should that be necessary. Canada
could lead internationally and help regain its reputation by championing
the creation of a United Nations Emergency Peace Service(UNEPS). Tens of
thousands of lives could by saved by this increased UN capacity, able to
move quickly and robustly when crises erupt.

Regarding the Town of Greece v. Galloway aspect of your article:
If, ..... as you indicate, "Yet somehow – especially since 1947
(Everson) – it has meant that no tax-funded entity may prefer, endorse,
advance or assist any religion – or anti-religion – in any
way."
Then, .... why is the anti-God, anti-Christian, anti-clerical,
anti-Old/New Covenant, pro-nature-worship, pro-wicca, humanist,
laicite-ist, "everyone does what is right in his/her own eyes"
RELIGION (def.n-- one of mankind's attempts to provide finite explanation
for infinite things) being endorse(d), advance(d) or assist(ed) by
schools/universities (and many tax-funded entities), the media and many
gosh-I-don't-want-to-offend-anybody politicos, pundits and gov't
officials?
As you correctly assert, the "Separation of Church and State"
in the USA (and by Canada, outside of Quebec) was intended as an
assurance to all extant (largely Protestant) denominations, faiths and/or
belief-systems that the USA would never sanction a "State
Religion" ie that no denomination/faith/belief-system would ever be
allowed to dominate the "religious life" in the country (as had
been in many of their citizen's Home countries) and that never would any
singular faith-system become an integral/guiding/influential part of the
legislative/executive/judicial/administrative processes of the central
government - subsequently this "separation" doctrine/policy was
deemed applicable to the states as well.
Banning the "establishment of a state religion" is far
different than banning an individual or group (??municipal council??)
from respectfully observing the "worthiness" of their
sovereign-superior, ultimate-authority-granting Boss in the public
square.
My opinion (and I daresay you might agree) that the pendulum of
court-granted Rights has swung too far past "fair" and is way
over in the "placate, ameliorate, over-compensate,
dare-not-ruffle" category of "making amends" for past
generations' intolerance, self-firsted-ness and
tyranny-of-the-majority.
One day, somebody running for office will start talking about the
responsibility of the elders, notables, leaders of a self-governing
nation to nurture/expect/demand the appreciation of the
social/political/economic importance and value of the "quality of a
person's character" irrespective of any and all external, internal
and eternal factors.
Let's all search for that someone .... and encourage them to start the
pendulum's (and the scale of justice too) swing back to
"balance" ... because that person represents how YOU think (but
dared not vocalize for fear of omni-present, poli-correct backlash) ....
and because you know that the election of that person represents the
first steps down the path YOU think must be taken to restore the New
Jerusalem that the New World once was capable of being.

The Americans have a great idea, attack and obliterate any country they
say may have Biological weapons, except of course Israel.
 
It is written that the USA has purchased billions of dollars of such
weapons since the (phoney) attack of 911.
 
Would it actually be Israel who were the sellers?    
Oh no, of course not.  How could I be so dumb to even ask such a
question?   I dont doubt that they have in fact purchased said
weapons, the question is, who will they unleash them on eventually.Who
knows? Maybe it will be just another unsolved mystery that our world
might as well get used too.

Party Convention in Calgary on Friday evening 01 November 2013. In
reviewing his record of accomplishments. Mr. Harper loudly boasted to the
crowd: "You don't prevent gun crimes in our cities by cracking down
on duck hunters.'This party ... ended ... the wasteful and ineffective
long-gun registry."(1)
As I stood in stone-cold silence in the back of the auditorium, my
colleague Joe Gingrich angrily murmured, "Mr. Harper is attempting
to hoodwink this  Convention with the Big Lie."
Beguilingly Mr. Harper invites us to join him in entering his Orwellian
world of "1984". As George Orwell predicted, in
"contradiction of the plain facts", Mr. Harper now tells
us:
"deliberate lies while genuinely believing in them, (and) forgets
any fact that has become inconvenient ... ."( 2)
To accept Mr. Harper's pretentious grandiloquence we would have to
suspend  reality.
Please Note Well: Stephen Harper has deliberately forgotten:. . the
promise he made to firearms owners to repeal the Bill C-68 - the Firearms
Act and all the attendant Criminal Code changes that made the mere
possession of a firearm illegal.(3) . . the Conservative Party Policy to
respect "the rights of law- abiding Canadians to own and use
firearms responsibly."(3) . . the pledge that his Firearms Critic
Garry Breitkreuz made to firearms owners(3) "to repeal Bill C-68 and
return the laws to the way they were before 1995."
Far worse, Mr. Harper has conveniently ignored the fact that his
endorsement of the Liberals' 1995 Bill C-68 licencing scheme IS in fact
'cracking down on duck hunters'.
. . Every firearms owner who has submitted to this unjust law is now on
the RCMP's Canadian Police Information Center's list of persons of
interest to police.(4)
. . Every firearms owner who has refused to submit to what is now Mr.
Harper's licencing scheme is subject to arrest and the confiscation of
their firearms.(5)
Fortunately, the CPC Convention did not end with Mr. Harper's
speech.
The next day in a near unanimous vote we delegates reaffirmed the
Conservative Party Policy that recognizes our Right "to own and use
firearms responsibly."
And for good measure we adopted a clause that declares that a
Conservative Government: "recognizes the legitimacy of private
ownership of firearms and will resist any domestic or international
pressure to the contrary."(6)
With this as our rallying cry, we reject Mr. Harper's Big Lie. In the
most emphatic manner possible we must remind Mr. Harper that we are NOT
sheep. We remember his promises. We remember Garry Breitkreuz's promises.
And we have reconfirmed our Conservative Party Policy that recognizes our
Right "to own and use firearms responsibly."
Mr. Harper must regain his memory. Mr. Harper must keep his promise. AND
Mr.Harper must implement legislation to repeal Bill C-68 - the Firearms
Act  and the Criminal Code provisions that make the mere possession
of a firearm illegal. Until Mr. Harper enshrines in law our Right
"to own and use firearms responsibly", we will seek his removal
as Party Leader.
Sincerely,
Edward B. Hudson DVM, MS
