“On Jan. 17, 1961, President Dwight Eisenhower gave the nation a dire warning about what he described as a threat to democratic government. He called it the military-industrial complex, a formidable union of defense contractors and the armed forces.”

Look at the age of these kids, what kind of parents sends their kids into harms way? Is this a peaceful protest?

Yesterday was an amazing day in the Philippines, for days now we have been bombarded with updates on Super Typhoon Haima. At its peak, Haima packed winds of up to 315 kilometers per hour (195 mph), the equivalent of a Category 5 hurricane on the Saffir-Simpson Hurricane Wind Scale.

At least 7 people were killed Sunday as Sarika crossed the archipelago north of Manila as a Category 4 storm. Almost 10,000 people were displaced, according to aid organization … Read the rest

Canada's Joffrey Baratheon

Canada’s Joffrey Baratheon

thronesIn a most unbelievable twist in the game of thrones Canadian style it now appears the young Trudeau outsmarted, outwitted and outplayed both Harper and Mulcair. Unfortunately he outplayed Canadian voters as well.

Without a doubt Trudeau quickly discovered the power of the social media campaign and that he himself missed the boat when Mulcair signed on to the election reform movement. As the NDP started in the election as top dog, the Liberals had to do something extraordinary to steal the thunder away from the NDP.

Without question it does not take a rocket scientist to … Read the rest

As we age some of us become complacent, and fall into a routine that could be called a rut, then something or someone comes along and you have no choice but to rebuild life all over again, so what better way to do that then fly halfway around the world, and leave the old life behind?

We flew halfway around the world to discover a whole new perspective on problems, issues and excitement, so over the next 2 to 3 years, yes we plan to stay that long, you will be reading more stories as seen through my eyes about … Read the rest

Recently I have been reading about a group of mayors who think the answer to municipal problems is collecting on the carbon tax. What a bunch of ignorant and self-centered fools. Are you forgetting or is it by design and intent that northern communities have the least chance of ever seeing transit as an alternative means of transportation, they already pay the highest food prices, with the worst selection for quality. toon

Adding insult to injury is the stupid majors in the north that support such idiocy, just because they can ride a bike to the majors office, does not mean … Read the rest

Note that this massive engine carries zero passengers and weighs in at 268,800 lbs

Have you ever wondered what life would be like in a logical world? One where government did what was needed for society rather than greed based legislation? Green initiatives are a joke on society, lots of charging us to make us shut up while they do nothing to fix real problems, and use the money to get re-elected.

If Canada continues to grow in population we cannot plan on more cars only, and more roads, you can only fit so many cars on a city street, … Read the rest

It’s so hidden from the news at a time when gas prices are falling faster than a sinking ship, the BC Utilities Commission approves a rate hike of 1.8% for PNG. They are claiming their costs are going up by 14.5% and want to pass on that loss to the consumers. screenshot_147
This when at the same time they are saying, to you and me,

“Natural gas is a commodity traded on the open market like other commodities such as oil, coffee or lumber. As with most commodities, the price is dictated by supply and demand. When demand is high, Read the rest

Why the BC Government? In a nutshell they destroyed more agricultural land in their tenure than all previous governments combined, and who did they sell it too, the same real estate developers who fund all their elections. If we would have protected our food industry rather than allowing China and the USA to produce our food, we would not be having a food price crisis in British Columbia.

Sticker shock, is that how you would describe your last trip to the grocery store? You read it in the press, you say it on store shelves, but are you being had?… Read the rest

Next on our list of requested articles from the past, and still just as relevant today is one we wrote back in March 10, 2011.

I could not believe my eyes when I discovered that somehow the Liberal Party under Gordon Campbell had figured out a method to charge people for the sex they have between the sheets. Read on and find out how it targets the provinces poor.

Of course they hid this discreetly in a way only a few would discover it, in fact … Read the rest
