Tim's Tip of the Day

Mark this time in your memory and remember what is being said for historians, if there are any, in the future will measure these days and our age will be judged upon the decisions made.

Ensign Notes

The dull days with snow, whites on white are a photographic challenge that can produce some very interesting results.

Is the Bush administration telling the truth?
Sunday, February 16, 2003
by: Mario deSantis
The Picasso mural of the Basque village of Guernica that was bombed by the German airforce in 1937 symbolises the autrocity of war and it must never ever be repeated. The varasity of the US president needs to be tested as he and his nation move so clearly toward invading Iraq.

Democracy is a wonderful feeling
Sunday, February 16, 2003
by: Mario deSantis
With the world wide peace demonstrations it is time to reflect on what sort of system is at work here and who is speaking and who has the right to speak.

Getty-yup . . . Gee

A team of horses doing chore work North of Tisdale this morning reminds us all of a time long in the past when all farm work was accomplished in this manner.

by: Mario deSantis
With millions of people involved in peace marches around the globe and Mr. deSantis' two sons in the march in Winnipeg today its time to take a look at what American leaders have been saying about the prospect of war and peace.

On Our Lack of Languaging: Tax-Free Communicator Walter Robinson
Friday, February 14, 2003
by: Mario deSantis
The use of terms in context that are meant in opposites is a matter of serious confusion and Mario deSantis wonders if the thinking that leads to such confusion is not deliberate.

A good proof of a bad goof
Friday, February 14, 2003
by: Ron Thornton
The decision to introduce federal legislation dealing with the funding of political parties and campaigns has been objected to by Walter Robinson earlier this week but Ron Thornton points out the democratic endangerment that such a scheme will have as it will further entrench a ruling party.

Not a clear day
Thursday, February 13, 2003
by: Timothy W. Shire
As Kevin points out in his story on periodic maintenance, a person needs to be careful about what they wish for. In this case what if you really could see into the future and predict what would happen?

Periodic maintenance required
Thursday, February 13, 2003
by: Kevin McIntyre
So a person grows long hair, well its a little more complicated that it appears and as Kevin explains, it requires looking after and the problems it creates.

Neat Car - 1956 Plymouth
Thursday, February 13, 2003
by: J. Stanley
The writer did not tell us where he is from but he included a picture and a plea for assistance so this one is for car enthusiasts to take a look at and perhaps someone will know and answer to Mr. Stanley's problem and give him a suggestion.

Today's Rule of Law and the Big Brains of Crony Capitalism
Wednesday, February 12, 2003
by: Mario deSantis
Mario's story today is more of an introduction than a story in itself as he has set out a list of web references that both support and define the problem that threatens to overwhelm the quality of life for us and our neighbours.

Minister Manley, tear a page out of Canadian History!
Wednesday, February 12, 2003
by: Walter Robinson
This might surprise you, but Canada was founded upon a principle of having lower taxes than the country to the South of us. Each of the various Canadian taxes of today were copied from the American tax system as it evolved.
