There is one issue that is turning out to be very significant. That issue is climate change, or as it's often refered to -- "Global Warming". The main reason why this issue is so important, is because it could lead to a global carbon tax. A global tax, of which the rates would absolutely NOT be decided by a worldwide plebiscite (that's impossible), or anything at all democratic for that matter. Global Tax equals Global Governance, and that is the main reason why I am against this "global warming" movement.
A second, and very important reason why I am against this movement is because of the evidence against the claims that our globe is warming. Al Gore is now the face of this supposed environmental movement, but he is certainly not a new face. He was the Vice President of the united states and was involved in setting up NAFTA, which might not be about free trade, but a tool for big companies to avoid paying tariffs, and might also encourage the setting up of cheap labor factories in Mexico; but I'd have to read the Bill to find out for sure. Either way, Al Gore's past gives me a strange feeling. He's a once Vice President of the US turned activists? Maybe.., but all signs point to bullshit. Here's a video that might help: ||||||
Another piece of evidence against this "Global Warming" movement is the recent Climategate scandal where over 1,000 private email documents between scientists have been released on the internet.
What happened is this: Hackers found their way into the server used by the Climatic Research Unit (CRU) based at the University of East Anglia (UEA) in England. The hackers then released thousands of emails of correspondence which reveal that the scientists working on the Global Warming debate were fudging their numbers.
"Global Warming" is not a closed issue.
Kale is 1 month old today!
I had a late night last night on the internet. I was surfing around Gerald Celente's site, The Trends Research Institute, and I learned a bit more about his predictions for the worldwide economy. He predicts a depression worse than the great depression. Celente argues that this depression will be worse because of a few things: Most people have mortgages (debt) today, which wasn't the case in the 30s; governments have HUGE debt -- wasn't the case in the 30s; and lastly, governments used to have yearly surpluses, which is unlikely to happen in these times.
Gerald Celente does his work from New York, but he shouldn't be dismissed just because he isn't Canadian. Our Canadian Government seems to mirror was goes on in the US.
I took a look at the Government of Canada's financial statements, and our government reported on March 31st, 2009 that it had gone 6.1 Billion dollars more in debt, which puts our Canadian Government at 463.7 Billion dollars in the hole.
As for this current year, it's been a financial mess for the US, who, under Barrack Obama, spent MASSIVE amounts of taxpayer dollars on bailing out the big US banks (Trillions of dollars). I think that THAT financial report will come out on march 31st, 2010, but I'm not positive. When the US financial report does come out, it will be interesting to see just how much they spent in 2009-2010.
I've been feeling a bit better, so I hope to post more often.
For now, I've got a youtube video of a religious conversation between a son and his mother:
I am no longer employed by Loblaw. I got really sick a few days ago and missed 3 days of work, so I then decided to just quit.
The last few days I've been suffering from bad flu symptoms. I'm much better now, but a few nights ago the pain was so bad I could feel it in both my femurs. Some might say that I have H1N1, but since I could feel it coming on for a while, and since I ate terribly and drank very little water on the days leading up to my sickness, Chelsi I think it's from bad dehydration.
So now I have a bit of spare time, which I'll first use to post something that is long over due; here is a picture of Kale at a little over a week old:
I called in sick today for my 4pm shift. I hope this isn't the beginning of the end for my job at superstore. But just in case, I'm gonna look into what the Canadian E.I. benefits are, and if I qualify for them. I might also look into Social Insurance benefits (welfare) even though I know that the legislation behind the welfare program is a piece of garbage.
So far so good; I just found out that for anyone living in the Fredericton-Moncton-Saint John region, the minimum "Number of Insured Hours Required to Qualify for Regular Benefits" (Human Resources and Skills Development Canada) is 665.
Well, this idea has come to an abrupt end as I've found out the rate of E.I. -- 55%. If I were to leave my job at superstore and be granted regular benefits, I would get about $594 per month. So I guess E.I. isn't going to be my saving grace.
If you've never heard of the Federal Reserve, know that it's a huge player in our world economy. The Federal Reserve's role according to "official Federal Reserve documentation" (wikipedia) is: "[to conduct] the nation's monetary policy by influencing monetary and credit conditions". The big words there are CREDIT CONDITIONS. The Federal Reserve controls the issuance of credit, which means that they basically have the power to create money. This may seem unimportant, unless you've heard about the 23+ trillion dollars the Federal Reserve gave away during the October 2008 bailout.
All of this so that I can say that our monetary system is nothing short of a CATASTROPHE. I'm no economist (which is a good thing), and I know that the power to issue credit (make money) should be in the hands of the people. But the Federal Reserve is in no way in the hands of the people, so what can be done? Simple... AUDIT THE FED!
Here is a video that will hopefully help make sense of some of this: ||||||
Here is a song that relates to remembrance day, as well as a video challenging all theistic religions:
Remembrance day. It's a day to be reminded: War is how we earned our freedoms, and we should remember all those that fought and died so that we could enjoy our lives. Well I don't know everything about the past wars, but I know enough about what's going on today to say that that is NOT what war is about. War is not about fighting "Terrorism"; war for peace is a lie.
War is about power. War is about the domination of a people and their culture in order to suppress and oppress, while robbing valuable resources. Am I anti-war? Very much. Do I wear a poppy? Fuck no!
If anyone cares, Marc Emery is serving a 5 year prison sentence for selling marijuana seeds (and paying federal income tax on his earnings).
Here is a podcast he made from jail for remembrance day: ||||||
Here is a 10 minute video by 'Press for Truth'. From Toronto, they talk about the current state of the H1N1 vaccine in Canada. ||||||
I found this video today. Are vaccines safe?

If you read the 3 ads, you can see that google knows how to advertise to me. On October 14th, I wrote a paragraph about 1993 nobel prize winner Kary Mullis -- the middle ad is about the nobel prize; the 3rd ad is about marijuana seeds -- I did a google search a few days ago about male and female marijuana plants. The first ad seems off, but I think the other two are clearly formed to relate to me and my site.
I really don't have much to write about this Wednesday. I'm quite tired out from work, and I've been spending most of my time off laying low at home with Chelsi and Kale.
I have been spending a bit of time looking and thinking about the night sky, especially the moon. Some people have said that the full moon affects people and their behavior, but I haven't heard more than that. Could a full moon actually give you more energy? It looked to me like a full moon at about November 2nd, and even though I worked my ass off the 2nd and 3rd I can't say it felt like I had more energy.
There is a new moon coming at around the 15th or 16th, I believe, and I plan to look up at the sky then. Maybe the stars will seem brighter in the absence of the shining moon.
I do plan to keep posting something every Wednesday, so I'll come up with something different for next week.
