Trading the Future for a Few Dollars More

Canada, Harper's government especially, will do anything, including sacrificing Canada's future independence in pursuit of greasing the wheels of 'trade'. It's crap basically, the paranoid Americans won't let one extra truck through. The EU Times Online: In a shocking coup d’√©tat the United States this past week effectively took control of Canada creating what is being called by Russian diplomatic officials as the world’s first 21st Century “Superstate”. Wonderful eh.

Canada has resources, but nothing lasts forever-ask the cod fishermen back east, and the same mentality that wiped out a seemingly inexhaustible cod resource is now the mindset of the Harperites on every thing, especially oil. It's crap too, the in the ground will gain in value just sitting there, has to, more humans-more demand vs. limited and even diminishing supply=prices rising.

Ya'd think Conservatives and conservatives would be into conserving, turns out not so much. Conservatives wanna sell now, sell low, roll over short term thinking into shorter term returns, its so dumb. What about Canada's future? As a culture we value financial profit over life. We're trading in future generations of human beings — all of them — for a few dollars more.-Guy Mcpherson

It's like having a paranoid addict wanting to be your best friend. My tea leaves cry out 'danger', hitching one's little boat to a sinking tanker isn't just dangerous it's dumb. The tea leaves say America's depression is set to move north in the next few years. Could be time to re-learn a few lessons from the folks that lived through the last big post-greed collapse. The video below is a great place to start:
