It’s been reported in the New York Times that there is a massive split in Israel over whether to attack Iran or not.
Netanyahu and Barak want to attack Iran, but everybody else in the defense establishment is against the idea, at least for now. The head of the Shin Bet, the head of the Mossad, [...]
One of the biggest surprises for me about the occupy movement is how many times I have heard our politicians say….. “We don’t know what they want” .
Our premier in British Columbia, Christy Clark, just said it the other day.
This seems very odd to me. Do they honestly not get it? Or are they trying [...]
For several years now, I have wanted to encourage young people to take to the streets and demand changes to the power structure of our governments. This movement is long over due.
The Canadian government charges interest on a student loan to a man with mental illness…….students are burdened with massive debt trying to get an [...]
Letter to the Editor: City Taxes
It is discouraging to hear our city leaders suggest that the salvation to our tax problems might be to encourage a casino in the heart of our city.
I would much rather see a plan where our leaders join together and make it clear to our federal government that we [...]
I can’t imagine a more stupid mistake than that being made by Peter MacKay, Canada’s current defense minister as he blunders into the civil war in Libya.
One has to ask if he has thought about this military adventure carefully.
Does Peter MacKay intend to take sides in this civil war? Has he instructed his pilots to [...]
Dear Mr. Prime minister
Very few things effect people as much as access to information and education.
One of the best tools for education in our country is the internet and I am aghast to hear that your government has approved restrictions on the internet by placing a meter on peoples internet.
People are able to get access [...]
I would like to create an exciting, colourfull art project on the breakwater here in Victoria BC.
The idea would be to dye dozens of simple cotton, white bed sheets in a gorgeous saffron yellow and let the wind billow them out and flutter like laundry …….perhaps held by poles or rope….. with the help of [...]
The prime minister of Canada, Steven Harper, doesn’t have an original thought in his head. He clearly takes his cues from the US government on what to do and say. It is no surprise that he is going to drag Canada further into the sand pit of Afghanistan and waste further billions of dollars of [...]
Canada finds itself in an economic mess and neither the Liberals or the Conservatives will get us out of this. The cost of the war in Afghanistan has been put at twenty four billion dollars…..accounting for almost half of our current deficit. The conservatives were eager to plunge us into this war. For the [...]
Afghanistan and Ultramarine Blue
There is an ancient story about when God made the world he had bits of rubbish and broken parts left over. The jagged pieces would not fit anywhere else and so he just threw those down and that formed Afghanistan.
When Alexander the Great led his Greek army into Afghanistan in 320 BC, [...]
