Tuesday, July 15, 2003
by: Timothy W. Shire
When your brain is the size of a period at the end of a sentence it is a tough problem to remember where you have been and wonder just where you should be going.

Tim's Tip of the Day

Interest rates dropped as we told you they would and with the drop the dollar came down a full cent however the Canadian dollar will regain that penny by Friday and will continue to rise gradually in value as the US economy slips into a recession.

Kevin's find of the day

gives a listing of who in the middle east has Weapons of mass destruction - and uh - where they got them from.

Ensign Notes

Summer holidays: That's right, 2003 is the first year since 1991 that we have had a chance to take a holiday. During June, July and the first two weeks of August we will have some intermittant days when Ensign will not post. Our plan is to do some tripping and camping here in Saskatchewan. Posting each day this week.

Canada Day at Crooked Lake
Tuesday, July 15, 2003
by: Timothy W. Shire
Colin Williams wrote to Ensign wondering about the images in the "Missing Middle Class" story from Wednesday of last week. Well this is the answer as we have some pictures of a backyard, actually a beach front, fireworks display at Crooked Lake.

More Tax-Payers
Tuesday, July 15, 2003
by: Richard Neuman
Richard Neuman gives us a pensive view of the way wealth and societal progress must feed and nurture each other. He feels that in time the present political thought will come around to a more socially aware perspective.

Shifting the blame for Bush's misstatement in his State of the Union address
Tuesday, July 15, 2003
by: Mario deSantis
The clouds of deceit roll in as the CIA takes the blame for the Bush State of the Union speech error but other CIA people explain that the warning of authenticity had been given and ignored. It all sounds a little late, the US public bought the man's "weapons of mass destruction" song and dance and the invasion took place, people died and debts pile up.

Advance Passenger Information / Passenger Name Record Programme
Tuesday, July 15, 2003
by: Rebecca Gingrich
Ottawa has been forced to knuckle under to adopt an identification programme with all the markings of a typical Police State. But when we consider the government's record in handling data such as gun registration things do not look promising.

Pike Lake Provincial Park
Monday, July 14, 2003
by: Timothy W. Shire
Only twenty minutes from downtown Saskatoon an oxbow in the Saskatchewan river amidst sand dunes is the location of an interesting park that offers a haven for urban dwellers and visitors alike. This story include a one megabyte QuickTime Virtual reality image that is not visible without QuickTime being installed in your computer.

The Greenwater report
Monday, July 14, 2003
by: Gerald Crawford
Boating, swimming, finding out of the way restaurants is all in a day's work for our intreped Greenwater reporter as he gives us some tips on when to lower the motor and what to watch for.

Bush in Africa: Compassionate Protectionism?
Monday, July 14, 2003
by: Mark Weisbrot
The United States President took five days to tour Africa yet after a year of promising aid to assist in the AIDS epidemic no money has been spent. African countries spend far more each year paying interest on debts to the IMF and World bank than they spend on health and education.

Is President Bush lying? The truth is in the eye of the beholder, think for yourself
Monday, July 14, 2003
by: Mario deSantis
The American President and his staff are busy defending the use of a forged document more than a year old claiming that Iraq was trying to purchase Uranium from Niger. In the face of such incredible information you are being asked to simply think this one through for yourself. But to help you look into it the references with this story lay out the confusion.

St. Therese Park, a place of peace
Wednesday, July 9, 2003
by: Timothy W. Shire
Where Tisdale's hospital once stood the park with its walking pathes, flower beds and trees is one of the best places in the whole town. Quiet and calm prevail on its lawns and park benches as you can see in today's QuickTime Virtual Reality image of the area. If you don't have QuickTime download it, it is free and easy to install, once in your computer it does its work without intrusion.

Understanding and Peace is a matter of Integral Language, Dementia and War is a matter of Policed Brainwashing
Wednesday, July 9, 2003
by: Mario deSantis
Fair warning, this is a complex story, but you will have to read it a couple of times for the message to sink in and if you do not check out the reference to the Kuwait parliament you will definitely be lost. No one ever said figuring things out was going to be easy.

Missing Middle Class
Wednesday, July 9, 2003
by: Timothy W. Shire
The constant complaining about taxes is simply dull and perhaps short sighted thinking being expressed by those unable to see the big picture. We don't need to reduce taxes we need more tax payers. We need income sufficient to afford the society our country is more than able to provide every citizen of this country and this story spells out a simple means to solving our problems.

The freer Free Market salaries of Canadian senior public servants: The case of Canada Post CEO Andre Ouellet
Wednesday, July 9, 2003
by: Mario deSantis
The post office is raising the cost of a postage stamp by a penny but the boss of the corporation, Liberal hack, Andre Ouellet is getting a pay raise to half a million a year. Nice job.
