— Um, So lately, along with Rachel’s wedding plans occupying much more of my time than I expected, and me thinking that copying and pasting News Items from CBC News on-line was a slightly interesting waste of time – my friend and c0-blogger, Jim W. recently told me he wanted to try to put as much positive information as possible out there in internet land and avoid the negatives as much as he could.
— So this morning it appears he’s blogged an update that I will copy and paste here:
Tuesday, January 19th, 2016 -( -13˚C / +9˚F With Wind Chill around -26˚C/ -16˚F — Greyish and cold in Atlantic Canada @ 7:16 am )-
— There are weather warnings out there this morning. Wind Chills below -20˚C — which would translate to -4˚F — But – The latest possible Nor’Easter that is worrying meteorologists in New England and Nova Scotia will probably remain far enough south so Most of New Brunswick might get a repeat of Last Sunday’s storm here. — Nova Scotia got 40 centimeters / 16 inches of snow while we only got maybe two inches / 5 cm?
— One candidate has declared himself in the running for Fredericton’s Mayoral position. Apparently the sitting mayor has not clearly announced whether he wants to be the Mayor for another term or run for a seat on the City Council. One thing the mayor said about labour negotiations between the bus company and its drivers might either bite him or win him points with voters (or both – earn him some votes from some voters and earn his oppositions candidates voters from pro union voters. When bus drivers said they wanted their pay to be equal with what drivers in Moncton get, the current mayor said, “If they want to get paid what Moncton drivers are paid – they should move to Moncton.”
— Local / municipal, county and Provincial governments all around Canada ( and the rest of the ‘Western world’ for that matter ) have been crying poverty and claiming they have to cut back on programs and cut down on the number of people they employ because they just don’t have the money. I have been asking reporters and other newsy types to investigate the claims of CAFR1.com for a couple of years now – since I heard Walter Burien, an investment counselor, explain that virtually every level of government in the USA and almost all of the USA’s allies follow a model developed by the Rockefellers, in which all levels of government have several income streams but only let the public know about what they get from taxes. Mr Burien claims that all levels of government in the west here could stop collecting taxes and provide more and better services than they do now. And the message seems to be, “If these governments are not following this model, well then shame on them.” If this is true, and I do not have the resources or expertise to properly investigate this, myself, then all levels of governments here in the ‘free world’ are engaged in a monumental fraud. And, if this is true, it lends a lot of credibility to the claims of many Conspiracy Researchers that Elitists, who are trying their darndest to manipulate and control everybody and everything, are using “Need to Know” information with-holding as one of their ‘tools’ to deceive the rest of us, the 99% of us that the 1%-ers want to control. Their other tactics include using Intelligence Gathering Operations like the C.I.A. and MI-6 to recruit, train and secretly control ‘Terrorists’ like Al-Qaeda and ISIS – in order to maintain an atmosphere of fear and anxiety because fearful and anxious populations can be convinced to surrender their rights and freedoms in favor of promises of safety and security. The fact that governments use Anti-Terrorist legislation to turn their guns on their own citizens does not become immediately apparent. Police disguised as rioters have been ‘outed’ in areas where G-20 meetings supposedly drew a lot of civil unrest and lots of peaceful demonstrators were arrested and later had charges against them dropped. This happened in Toronto, Ontario, Canada a couple years ago. And it’s happened in too many other cities around the world.
— “Governments have killed more of their own civilian populations than Foreign Armies have in all the Wars in the Last Century.” —
— In other, possibly more hopeful news, Anti-Terrorist Laws in the UK have been found to violate fundamental rights by failing to protect the rights of journalists and labeling journalists who criticize their governments as terrorists. I haven’t seen anything in the mainstream media about this here in Atlantic Canada, but the “Tweet-Us-Sphere” has been buzzing.
— Another thing I’d like to research today is a job opportunity here :
— Okay, I’ve probably done more than enough damage here today – Think Positive – We are evolving, The bad guys will kill each other off in their insane power struggles and leave the rest of us free to discover what the “New Heaven – New Earth” might be like.

— Beyond that – I’ve added the spiffiest Mac Mini I could find to my collection of ‘nearly new’ computer junk, and now face the needless frustration of “Google Chrome” informing me that the mac mini’s hardware is no longer supported by Google Chrome [ implying that I should run out and spend lots of money – that would be better used giving my daughter a wedding she deserves – on making sure I have the latest and greatest innovations in NSA friendly spy tech inside my work-horse computers ] – I fire up Chrome to make sure that anything I post using Firefox does not look insanely formatted in a Chrome browser.
— & While Jim keeps telling me in email that he doesn’t think this winter will be as bad as the last two were in New Brunswick, my sweetie up there isn’t quite as sure as he is, but she has her fingers crossed. & “Hey – Universe – If you hand me a winning lottery ticket, how crazy would it be to try to maintain two residences? one in New York State and the other In New Brunswick?” – Rachel & her husband to be are suggesting it might make more sense to migrate to Maine if I’m serious about living in two countries at once? -shrug- That whole idea might be ridiculous – But —
— have a nice day 🙂 –,
