Insolitus Vicis

I am laying John Ball's Ghost to rest (temporarily) and will be focusing my unfortunately limited energy on a new blog that will be a little more focused on local Canadian issues as well as more personal input. I may update JBG from time to time but for now most of my thoughts will be going to the new blog.

Stephen Harper: Neo-Con Asshole, Warmonger and now, Plagiarist.

Stephen Harper copies Australian PM John Howards speech supporting an attack on Iraq 2 days prior-WORD FOR WORD.
Stephen Harper, like all Neo-Con warmongering assholes, belongs in the dust bin of history. Stephen Harper is an embarassment to all Canadians. Not only was the attack on Iraq a bad idea from the beginning, as many of us said from the beginning, but this dunderheaded Bush ass-sucker couldn't even bring himself to write his own speech, instead, standing up in front of Canada with what appears to be a speech written by...who knows? Some speechwriter in the White House in Washington, DC?

Shame on you, Stephen Harper, you warmongering Neo-Con fascist Bush wannabe clown.

Voices from the Past Comment the Wall Street Bailout Plan.

Thomas Jefferson: "If the American people ever allow private banks to control the issuance of their currency, first by inflation and then by deflation, the banks and corporations that will grow up around them will deprive the people of all their property until their children will wake up homeless on the continent their fathers conquered."

Andrew Jackson: "It is to be regretted that the rich and powerful too often bend the acts of government to their selfish purposes. Distinctions in society will always exist under every just government. Equality of talents, of education, or of wealth can not be produced by human institutions. In the full enjoyment of the gifts of Heaven and the fruits of superior industry, economy, and virtue, every man is equally entitled to protection by law; but when the laws undertake to add to these natural and just advantages artificial distinctions, to grant titles, gratuities, and exclusive privileges, to make the rich richer and the potent more powerful, the humble members of society-the farmers, mechanics, and laborers-who have neither the time nor the means of securing like favors to themselves, have a right to complain of the injustice of their Government. There are no necessary evils in government. Its evils exist only in its abuses. If it would confine itself to equal protection, and as Heaven does its rains, shower its favors alike on the high and the low, the rich and the poor, it would be an unqualified blessing. "

John. F. Kennedy: "We are opposed around the world by a monolithic and ruthless conspiracy that relies primarily on covet means for expanding its sphere of influence; on
infiltration instead of invasion, on subversion instead of elections, on intimidation instead of free choice, on guerrillas by night instead of armies by day. It is a system which as conscripted vast human and material resources into the building of a tightly-knit highly efficient machine that combines military, diplomatic, intelligence, economic, scientific, and political operations. Its preparations are concealed, not published. Its mistakes are buried, not headlined. Its dissenters are silenced, not praised. No expenditure is questioned, no rumor is printed, no secret is revealed."

Fact Of the Day

According to Forbes Magazine, the world now has 358 billionaires.
Their combined net worth exceeds the combined net worth of the world's poorest 2½ billion people.

Who to Vote for in the Upcoming Canadian Election?

Do you think that global empire, supporting the broken policies of Bushism, handouts to corporate cronies, tax cuts for the wealthy, North American Union, massively increasing the military budget and secrecy in the Prime Ministers Office are hunky-dory?
Do you think we need a leader who is looks uncomfortable in anything other than a suit and tie or a bad sweater? Are you naive enough to believe that a Minority right wing idealogue government will be just as moderate and cautious as a Majority right wing idealogue government?
Are you a big supporter of the Neo-Con agenda and the Clash of Civilizations, where fake Christian bible bangers, oil companies and insane bloodthirsty zionazis can work in conjunction to make a hideous malformed monster that will be busy bombing and maiming and murdering millions of brown people for the next one hundred years?
Then vote for the Conservative Party.

Are you of the mind that the solution to every problem facing the Western World is a tax increase? Do you believe that making promises to voters is just a tool to be used to fool them into voting for you? Do you think the best position is no position at all?
Are you comfortable with shelling out more of your hard earned money to bail out polluters and line the pockets of environmental study groups using faulty science and incorrect data because the agenda has to fit around the science, and not vice versa?
Do you think that cronyism and bureacratic boondoggles, billions of missing taxpayer dollars and routine violation of the Elections act is just business as usual? Do you want a Prime Minister for whom English is possibly a third or fourth language?
Then vote for the Liberal Party.

When you walk down the street, do you see a mass of homogenous entities who are all equal and the same, beings who despite their obvious differences are mandated to be equal in skill and intelligence? Do you think its important to ensure that we have employed enough wheelchair bound Bangladeshi lesbians as policewoman? Have you made up your mind that whenever a gun is used to kill someone, it was committed by the gun, and not the criminal who fired it?
Are you labouring under the illusion that banning a tool used in a criminal offence will be any incentive at all to the criminal?
Do you think that massive tax hikes are the solution to our economic woes and that every special interest group deserves to be supported directly out of your wallet?
Then vote New Democratic Party.

Hope this helped you make up your mind about this very important decision.

Mushroom Cloud Over Wall Street

Excellent article by Mike Whitney that lays bare the treason and stunning crime that is being openly displayed by the banksters and their minions in New York and Washington, DC. Read it and weep for our broken down future and the sorry state of affairs we have callously left for future generations.

My thoughts:

This is the beginning of what we "conspiracy theorists" have been literally and figuratively screaming to all of the television watching mesmerized sheep for years and years, the socialization of corporate banking and the literal robbing of the citizenry to line the pockets of the already filthy rich.

The New World Order. If you live in the United States of America, its right there on your dollar bill.
Corporate welfare good.
Individual welfare bad.
Corporate socialism good.
Citizen organized socialism bad.
Greed is good. Prudency is foolish and "unrealistic". Lying is patriotic. Telling the truth is hateful.
Fiat currency backed up by a printing press and the promises of proven liars is good. Sound money backed up by real precious metals and tangible assets is just a fantasy.
Trillions for the bankers and shim sham men who have run gigantic hedge firms and investment banks into the ground. Nothing for working people who have had a run of bad luck or simply lost their jobs.

Four legs good. Two legs...better.

Welcome to 1984. 2008 Style.
And someday soon, maybe not this year, but some time in the near future, as you are standing in line at barb wired regional Homeland Work Camp waiting for your bowl of reconstituted soya mush after 14 hours of patriotic duty making weapons for the Neverending War on Terror, hopefully you will take some time to reflect on how you stood by and did nothing while you are your progeny were literally....sucked dry.
