We are Parked on guard for thee
Thursday, April 24, 2003
by: Timothy W. Shire
Most Canadians never see any evidence of their Canadian Armed Forces. The trainers that fly over Moose Jaw are privately owned and the one or two 4x4s and little trucks in Regina are hardly enough to be noticed. Here is what Canada's military equipment looks like.

Tim's Tip of the Day

Don't go to Toronto. The Toronto broadcast people are all in Toronto and though SARs is serious it is not the only thing in the world. Far more Canadians will die on the May long weekend in car accidents than a full blown outbreak of this deadly disease. Since the first case appeared in Torono far more people have suffered horrible deaths from being addicted to tobacco. But for now, avoid tobacco, number 1 highway and Toronto.

Ensign Notes

Mike Townsend reports his Uncle brought the first Voodoo to Canada at the Bagotville base. While yesterday Victor Cote agrees with me about the complexity of "simple" consumer electronic equipment that is impossible to difficult for everyone to operate.

On Paul Krugman and Bush's lie that $726 billion will create 1.4 million jobs

by: Mario deSantis
No with standing the myth that tax cuts produce increased economic activity there is an amazing math problem that the Bush administration is touting as a solution.

Not on my fairway!
Tuesday, April 22, 2003
by: Timothy W. Shire
This used to be the end of Moray, until the City marched it straight South. . . . . across a golf course, not a popular decision. Winnipeg is not a lot different from other urban centres as the conflict between its citizens and the use of the land seems to be increasingly selfish problem.

Delayed Reaction
Tuesday, April 22, 2003
by: Kevin McIntyre
After Edwin brought the speech by Mel Hurtig to our attention we had some reaction from John Noriega of San Jose California. It is sitting in the list of things to post when time permits but Kevin also received the same response and so here is Mr. Noriega's comments with some from Kevin McIntyre. God Bless America.

The Iron Triangle: Bush, Carlyle and the real culprits of September 11
Monday, April 21, 2003
by: Mario deSantis
There are so many times that as we put together a story for this web site we have a longing hope that this just can't be true. Sadly in the case of the Carlyle group the more we learn the more we all realise just how very bad things are and will continue to be.

Friday, April 18, 2003
by: Mario deSantis
The contracts to fix this rebuilt that all over Iraq are already let and American and some British companies will begin to see the profits flow their way from the invasion of the country. The country that was plundered and today the medium of exchange in Iraq is the US dollar.
