So the end-game plan for the US/NATO/EU alliance and the Western oligarchs and plutocratic elite who control it, in their bid to consolidate their present and highly precarious global dominance, seems to be, after encircling Russia and China with military bases and nuclear missiles, to eliminate Russia’s first strike response capability – which means, in […]

The children of unionized Alberta public employees enjoy Christmas at home. Unfortunately, Mom and Dad had to be at work because the jobs they do are essential. Below: One of the great minds of the Alberta government scratches his head as he puzzles out the problem. (Edmonton Sun photo.)

A steward serves Alberta Premier Alison Redford as members of her entourage dine nearby during their return flight from South Africa. Don’t worry, this is satire, and actual Alberta politicians and their political advisors will never appear exactly as illustrated. Below: Nova Scotia Premier Stephen McNeil, obviously suffering from a defeatist attitude and a regional inferiority complex, prepares to pay for his own ham and cheese sandwich. So why is he smiling?
It only cost $946.44 for Nova Scotia Premier Stephen McNeil to travel to and from South Africa for Nelson Mandela’s funeral last month because Nova Scotians (Read more…)

Unfortunately for Stephen Harper, I don’t think that old chestnut “it’s gonna get worse before it gets better” applies to his current predicament. It might just keep getting worse until the Harper Government ceases to be, and that would be nobody’s fault but his own.
Manic, rude, cut-throat and insane – yes, corporate culture is just lovely. No wonder two thirds of the people have one foot out the door – and the other third are looking for an exit.

Retailers stock up with must have items to lure anxious shoppers into over spending and in many cases to buy worthless crap.
Oh, the big ticket items will be selling well, or will they?

Feeling a tad disconnected and estranged from the current state of affairs?
