Well I live out of town now, with no internet, or power or running water for that matter. It has been an amazing experience; it is definitely not conducive to having an internet blog.
That being said, I have had an epiphany into the future of Canada. It is fairly apparent now that with Obama back in office, civil war is brewing heavily down in the USA. The whole country is divided into two extremes – those who are living by the good graces of the federal government and wish to continue doing so, and those who are paying for the expenses of the federal government and are sick of doing so. Eventually this is going to lead to complete chaos. This civil war is not going to be a North vs. South scenario like the last civil war the States went through. This is going to be fought in every town, city, county, state and region of the country. Neighbours who have been friends for decades will kill each other in blind fanatical rages, and families will be torn apart by these political and philosophical differences. This is unavoidable.
What is also unavoidable is that Canada will be affected. Along the borders that separate southern Canada and the Yukon from the States there will be people fleeing to Canada, more troops posted on the US side of the border, smuggling and crime increases. Canada will be involved whether we want to or not.
Canada is pretty much owned by China. Most of our mining operations are run by the Chinese (speaking from the Yukon, I can assure any readers that this is a fact in the North. As for the rest of the country, I can only assume that the logging, oil and gas industries are the same way). When the war starts to get out of hand, or even before, China – our friendly trading partners are going to offer to send troops up to “assist” us and “protect” us. They will do this for two reasons. Firstly to protect their investments. There will be troop outposts everywhere all of a sudden. Then the second reason will become more and more apparent. They are going to use the fact that there is already quite a large Asian population living in Canada to mold our national ideologues in the Chinese image. Essentially, I believe Canada will go from being subject to British rule to Chinese rule.
This is unavoidable. And it scares me. My sister and I were discussing this last night. She agrees that this is a likely future for us, but disagrees on the timeline. I believe this will happen increasingly rapidly, taking place in the next 10-15 years. Claire believes it will take at least 50 years to get to that point. I hope she is right, but I wish we were both wrong.
Until next time,
Ann Coulter – September 19, 2012 – ELITIST, OUT-OF-TOUCH MEDIA COMPLAIN ROMNEY NOT REGULAR GUY.
“At a private gathering, Romney told donors that Obama had a lock on the 47 percent of voters “who pay no income tax” and “believe the government has a responsibility to care for them.” This was deeply offensive to people who pay no income tax and believe the government has a responsibility to care for them.
But no matter how much the media belch out the usual cliches — out of touch, insensitive, racist, not one of us, Thurston Howell, etc. etc. — all most people heard was: FORTY-SEVEN PERCENT OF AMERICANS PAY NO INCOME TAX?”
OBAMA’S PUBLIC SECTOR FULL EMPLOYMENT PLAN – Ann Coulter
The reason the media does not want to discuss Romney’s alternative to Obama is because the media knows that if people are given real options, they will act accordingly. Look what happened in Wisconsin. Union memberships dropped from 60,000 to 28,000 the moment union dues became voluntary rather than compulsory.

I am a firm believer that bullies can work under the most self-righteous banners. and this video says with so much more clarity than I can give.
Ottawa urged to come clean as ‘mass hysteria’ mounts over EI reform.
I hope that this comes to pass. I have a severe problem with anybody who refuses to take a job they think is beneath them. For the last ten years I have worked every nasty, smelly, lousy job in the book, and I tell you that the experience gave me a lot more than a full resume – it gave me an appreciation for the job I have now, and the confidence to move myself forward in life without fear of failure.If it was not for this smug attitude of all these college graduates who think they are too good for menial labor, we would not be bringing in immigrants left right and center to work at Canadian Tire and Tim Hortons (By the way, the same people complaining about the imported immigrants are the ones complaining about working in menial jobs).
I would work night shift, scrubbing floors at McDonalds if I had to. Luckily, I have done enough of that type of work that I no longer have to. But the folks who are going to be affected by these potential EI reforms have not done these jobs, and while they are overqualified by whatever education they have, they are woefully underqualified for an actual work environment. They have nothing on their resume to show to potential employers even in low-income jobs, and I know if I was looking to hire someone and their resume showed me they had been on EI for more than a month and a half with no medical excuse, I would draw a distinctly negative conclusion about their work ethic.
As a point of interest, Google “Jobless Need Not Apply”. Last year there was a trend popping up, and I am sure it still continues – companies would not consider hiring somebody who was not already employed. What does that indicate? That employers recognize that there are two types of people out there – the people who think the jobs should come to them, and the people who are willing to work at whatever it takes to get them to a better job. I say to the latter, good for you. And as for the former – as I am paying your way right now, I have no sympathy for you.
An article I read today in the National Post:
Personally, I plan on getting married. I want to have a husband with whom I can share the rest of my life. But in this day and age, when divorce is a messy complicated situation, is it really a shock that fewer people (myself included) are actually interested in being bound by a legal ceremony, much less a religious one? Adding your name to the Department of Legal Nuptials is a completely unnecessary step in paperwork, when after 12 months of living together, a common-law partner is entitled to half of your assets. And you can separate without going through the divorce processes.
I came from a broken family. But my parents were not married, so when they decided to part, they did not have to go through the whole mess with lawyers and custody agreements. They figured out their own terms that were not dictated to them from an outside source. I am lucky in that there were no legal actions taken on either side, regarding custody or alimony. But the point is, had my mother decided to sue for alimony, she would have been granted it without ever having been married to my father.
So what is the advantage of getting married in this day and age? Well, if you are religious, then there is the added perk of having your union blessed by the higher power of your choice. Marriage can give you a greater chance of immigrating to another country. Also, arranged marriages for financial, political or any other reason can fulfill a purpose. But, for those who simply want to spend their life with one person, a legality cannot bestow that which has already been given to you.
A wedding should not be an event to signify the beginning of a life together. It should be an acknowledgement that life has already begun. When I find one I wish to spend my life with, I may have a commemoration of some sort; there will be no ritual. Just friends, family, a few simple vows and a dinner. I, like so many others, do not need sanction from others.
