Copied & Pasted : Looks Like Jim Made the Mistake of Watching The News Today :)

Good News First? We discovered a relatively new organization that supports local farmers who grow what we hope is 100% natural food and sell that directly to their customers. We’ll know a little more next Tuesday.

Above is a screen shot from —> cleanproteinfarmfoods.ca  [ <— link ] We’re hoping their stuff is 100% free of anything genetically modified. & we’ll let you know about that after Tuesday evening.

We owe our existance to topsoil and rain.

Ain’t it the Truth? Support your local family farms! Before Monsanto kills us all and reports back to the devil that they’ve won. (( Schnarr! ))

Meanwhile:

1984 revisited

I went looking for some of those gawdawful images of heavily armed military guys terrorizing civilians in Brussels today. Every day it appears more clear that my father’s generation went to war between 1939 and 1945 to free the world of Nazis so good old boys the world over could sneak them bloody fascists into their countries and learn from them all their secrets and turn the whole bloody planet into a series of terrorized concentration camps.

schnarr

Taylorism: The plot by elitists to micro-manage technology and suppress everyone they could while exploiting them in economic slavery; making themselves richer and more powerful all the time and making sure the creative, innovative and productive are rendered powerless and penniless and in debt way over their heads through all eternity.

schnarr ii

Yes, World War II was fought so ice holes could learn how to terrorize anyone who’d been born into a free society and fleece the honest citizens of the world and invoke a Fascist/Terrorist world economy and corporate Oligarchy? ???

WTF X2

So while Donald Trump wants to be the king of everything and build a strong defensive wall around his riches, he’s using the old ‘Divide and Conquer’ strategies, trying to scare Americans into fearing refugees and economic immigrants that the corporate oligarchy needs to work for almost nothing. & his Trumpness forgets that if he gets his way and outlaws refugees,  Native Americans,  Canadian First Nations, and all of North and South American aboriginals might find a legal loophole to export all the European, Asian, and ‘other’ usurpers who came to “Turtle Island” / the ‘Americas’ to escape the kind of tyranny that ice holes like Trump are trying to reinstate here now.

ouch

The bottom line is. The loving, industrious, creative, nurturing, supportive citizens of this world are the ones who suffer the most,  to the point where they’re almost paralyzed when bigoted ice-holes do their damnedest to create a state of constant fear and add their divisive propaganda which encourages morons to bully and isolate anyone who might look slightly different, but who just might be the Angels in Earthly form who can save us all from wannabe Hitlers and other Anti-Christs.

— Anybody want a soapbox? — I’m finished with it for today.

Facebook ads paid for by the Conservative Party.

Is this an example of Canadian Tax Dollars at work? I think we would at least hope the Conservative Party Of Canada is paying for this out of their own pockets.

& Maybe I should be happy to see that they’re wasting their money on an ‘American’ / US Citizen who’s in love with a Canadian and checking out her facebook page.

I didn’t get the ad I clicked on before, the divisive, Xenophobic ad that shows a side view of Stephen Harper, the current Prime Minister and says, “It is offensive that someone would hide their identity at the very moment they are… [committing to join the Canadian family.” -Prime Minister Stephen Harper, February 12, 2015 <— Everything after the ellipses was on the idiotic “I AGREE!” Page. ]

I clicked “Disagree” and twiddled my thumbs while facebook brought me to a page where it finished the statement and wanted me to fill out my name and address and email address and let the conservative party use me as an example of the many quadrillions of Canadians who hate the idea that anybody from an Arab culture might want to wear a Niqab while taking the Oath of Citizenship.  It also wanted me to click on “Donate Now” and help the evil, Xenophobic, manipulating, fascist, micromanaging, ICE-HOLE [Stephen Harper] get his butt re-elected.

The above quoted ad

— Jim Found the ad and emailed it to me- thank you, Jim. —djo—

This is coming one day after the media ran this article —> “Finance Minister Joe Oliver charged taxpayers to upgrade seat on flights” [ October 14, 9:27 PM ET ]

And this [ the following ] article went over the Prime Minister’s latest b.s. shenanigans [ Having Party shills exposing their children to cameras and other party shills while dropping piles of Canadian money a little bit at a time while a cash register ‘comically’ goes ‘Ka-Ching” with each drop – while the smug Prime Minister grins with a leer, preaching to his choir, firmly believing that ‘anybody with half a brain/ half a lick of sense’ is solidly behind him and firmly believes everything he believes they should believe – ]  with a magnifying glass and ran this slightly lengthy article online at http://www.cbc.ca/news/politics/   :

Also — I heard on NPR radio, WHYY’s “Fresh Air” with Terry Gross – that there is a book entitled “Canada After Harper” with a Forward by Ralph Nader :

Canada After Harper - Book For Sale.

I hope this comes through large enough so you can read it —

And I wondered why I didn’t hear anything about this book, which was published/released on August 15th, before this.

&&& If that isn’t enough, one idiot running for office under the banner of Stephen Harper’s Conservative Party announced in a real debate that Liberal Party Leader wants to put Brothels and places to shoot up with deadly drugs next door to all your vulnerable, loving, innocent children & apparently, Conservative propaganda has been published with that same idiotic & unfounded, un-verified claim in Chinese and maybe other languages most Canadians can’t read. So who knows what other flagrant lies these morons are trying to put out there and believe we’re all stupid enough to believe that if they say something, it must be true?

My favourite psychic/sensitive people still believe the Conservatives will lose big time in this election – A lot of veterans are mobilized in an “Anybody But Conservatives” campaign.

Meanwhile, some Media Watch people keep pointing out that Stephen Harper’s tactics lately show them that he’s desperately trying to hold on to his base. They point to him bringing out the loose cannon – drug addicted ex-mayor of Toronto and his brother, sitting them in front of a room only half full of ‘party faithful’ as a symptom of this desperation. 

I do not endorse anybody here, but I really hope the Canadian Voters are not so blind and stupid they re-elect these ice-holes.

But then I can still hear one of my favourite Canadian’s voice, “People around here would elect a dead goat if it ran under the Conservative Party of Canada’s banner-” ringing in my ears.

Bull Chips Propaganda from Stephen Harper.

Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper’s bid to buy votes and convince voters that the opposition wants to take food out of their babies’ mouths is a lie. The Harper Government has ‘Clawed Back’ the ‘old’ child benefits and substituted this propaganda campaign, without explaining that the new benefits are taxable, so the average benefit would amount to a little over $13.00 Canadian money per month – —djo—

& So far, nobody has won a “Nice Job” from me by telling me that the ‘other’ progressive law recently passed in France makes it illegal to design planned early obsolescence into products.

CAFR1 NATIONAL POST

 
 
CAFR1 MARKET RANTS POST OF 07/27/15 at 10:07 AM EASTERN TIME.

This Wednesday is the FOMC (Federal Open Market Committee) monthly meeting in which the determination is made for a interest rate increase. The announcement comes out at 2 PM Eastern time.

Interest rates have held at their lowest levels for several years. All have been watching for the first move by the Fed towards the 1st increase.

Well, the data they look at to make their determination, Unemployment, GDP, Durable Goods orders, etc. have almost fallen in line. The market chatter has been looking for the 1st increase to take place in September or October of this year. From the writing on the wall, and in my opinion, I give it a 60% probability the 1st increase will be announced tomorrow at 2 PM Eastern time.

At last months meeting, one member pushed to have the increase start last month. At this meeting the data that came out since the last meeting supports an increase.

Bottom line if they do so? Some of the wildest swings seen for quite some time in the interest rate futures, metals, dollar index, stock indexes, etc. US 30 Year Bonds could see a swing of 3 to 5 points to the downside . Silver a $1.25 to $2 swing to the upside.  Stock indexes to the downside, then a massive swing to the upside. All will be on a roller-coaster ride for sure.

If they do not? The chatter from the meeting will probably indicate doing so where it will have the same effect but not as visceral.

Keep your eyes open tomorrow!

Tweet about food laws in France

A tweet – The French have a law against supermarkets throwing away edible food 🙂 They should give it to charities for people in dire financial straits or as animal feed. Makes sense. Why isn’t everybody doing that? —djo—

France has also made it illegal to do something else recently that flies in the face of rabid free market capitalism. [ & The first one to email me at doug.otterson@aerendel.org with what that other French Law is all about earns an ‘Attaboy’ or, “Good Job” from me. 😉 ] And let me say that recent French humanitarianism makes me proud to be a human being who can speak at least a dozeen basic sentences in French that might annoy French purists, but at least they’d know what I was trying to say 🙂  ——— djo ———

Friday, 24 July, 2015 -( 78˚F / 26˚C with a few  clouds overhead @ 6:30 pm near Ithaca, New York )-

What’s Happenin in Canada? I’ll give ya a hint: The ‘sitting’ Conservative ‘government’ is spamming most teevee channels up there with painfully annoying campaign style propaganda months ahead of their scheduled election in the fall: Their television ads are full of nauseating hints, false logic and innuendos – implying that the candidate the Prime Minister fears the most hates all Canadian tax payers, has his head up (*) you know where, and will pull back on all the sudden ‘entitlements’ the ‘government’ is trying to bribe potential voters with, and then strip older Canadians of their pensions and take the food out of starving babies mouths.

There are a couple ‘commercials’ in this barrage. They show people who are supposed to look intelligent discussing the head of the Liberal Party’s non-qualifications for the job of Prime Minister, his ‘lack of maturity’, his ‘clue-less-ness’ in how to defend Canada against the terrorists the Conservatives want everyone to believe are hiding under everybody’s beds, ready to pounce, torture and ‘brutally murder’ everyone and everything you hold dear.

In the second commercial in this barrage, which is aimed at senior citizens as well as the financially second class citizens who were not going to get any benefit worth noting from the Conservatives’ ‘Income Splitting’ scheme to begin with – the actors sit around and complain about the head of the Liberal Party and his campaign to cheat growing families out of the magical windfalls that have suddenly materialized ( sending the projected budget surplus into a budget shortfall bigger than the earlier projected surplus- ) and assure each other that his agenda will certainly try to cheat retirees out of their pensions and claw back every law passed or proposed by the Conservatives that would supposedly make average retirees’ lives a little more comfortable – which is a blatant lie – nothing the Conservatives have proposed was aimed at making anyone but the top couple percent of mega-millionaires more comfortable. – And the actors want to make the television viewing public believe that the Liberal Leader has made public speeches outlining his plot to take any possible advantages away from average and low income senior citizens, which is absolutely not the case. I am not endorsing the Liberal Leader, or anyone in this upcoming election, but I will say that this form of implicational propaganda looks to me like the smug Leaders of the Conservative Party up there have sunk to new lows. In the U.S.A. there is a saying: “The Republican Party has never lost an election by underestimating the intelligence of the voting public.” In Canada, it looks to me like the Conservatives have embraced a policy that can be summed up as, “Tell them anything, and they’ll believe it.”

– The biggest problem I have with these commercials is that the actors never answer the questions they ask each other, they follow those questions with unsupported accusations, off the wall implications and private suppositions which are supposed to look like the gospel truth because they’re coming from actors? – who, in the most often spammed commercial are pretending to be a board of directors for something like a respectable company. [Let me tell you, in my world there is no such thing as a respectable corporation.] Those actors’ snide comments are probably pretested on guinea pig audiences and calculated to make everybody want to throw up at the mention of the Liberal Candidates’ names. Of course, the test audiences are probably entirely made up of Conservative Party shills and I’m hoping they will be shocked senseless when the actual vote is counted and they find out how badly they misjudged the viewing public and the Canadian Citizenry whether they can stomach any main stream television or not.

– The second biggest problem I have with these commercials is the fact that the campaign has not officially begun up there yet so the rules governing fairness in campaigns do not apply yet. The incumbents can hammer everyone with lies and innuendos and call it ‘information’ and get away with that.

It also looks like *’all three’ of  the ‘major’ parties want to streamline their government by removing the Senate, that ‘House of sober second thought’ which should be an effective check and balance on their House of Commons – but has been used by every ruling party to stack the decks in their favour – Canadian Senators are ‘Appointed’ by the Prime Minister, for an indefinite length of time. [ If “Democracy is the worst form of government except for all the other forms that have been tried” as Winston Churchill observed, you better realize that this is not Democracy, The Prime Ministerial type of government is whatcha call a “Republic” Sometimes referred to as a ‘Parliamentary Republic’, or since they still give lip service to the monarchy in England, ‘A Parliamentary Monarchy’,  ( *’all three’ = Nobody seems to be taking the Green Party or the Party Quebecois seriously – which I hope comes back to bite them where it hurts. )

-And then today- there is email from an organization that is trying to defend the CBC (Canadian Broadcasting Company) from the Conservative Prime Minister’s campaign to unfund them and take away the potential threat that Stephen Harper feels when confronted with the possibility that quality journalism might undo his efforts to institute corporate fascism as the ultimate form of government in Canada.

-I actually signed up for ‘news & updates’ about the Canadian Prime Minister’s campaign to gut the best news service in North America. Today they sent out this message in email. I’ll mess with their ‘donate’ messages (they were links) to make them even more painfully obvious:-

Subject: The truth about Harper’s Child Care “Benefit”

This week millions of child “benefit” cheques arrived in Canadian families’ mail boxes, but there’s one thing Harper hasn’t told people — it’s taxable, and only worth about $13 per month for the average person. It’s a massive trick to try to buy Canadians’ votes with our own money.

Please donate today so we can counter Harper’s re-election strategy with hard-hitting ads to let Canadians know the truth about the Harper Conservative’s child care benefit.

Donate Today

Dear Doug,

This week the Harper Conservatives hit a new low. Employment Minister Pierre Poilievre raced around the country in an election-style campaign to promote Harper’s child care cheques, but there’s one thing he hasn’t told families: the new child “benefit” is taxable.

That’s right. Taxable. Which means that the Harper Conservatives are not only trying to buy our votes with our own money, they also plan to take BACK a hefty chunk in April – after the election.

Most benefits are taxable, but here’s the catch — while bringing in the new child “benefit” the Conservatives also just quietly axed our $2,225 child tax credit. After all’s said and done, that means a typical working parent will receive just $13 a month to cover skyrocketing child care costs.[1]

Thirteen dollars. Not a single child care space, not affordable care and nowhere near an actual plan – just $13. That’s not even enough to buy a pack of diapers.

The scary thing is this could work – millions of cheques are arriving in people’s mailboxes right now, and most of the Canadians Harper is targeting simply don’t know that this is a cheap trick to try to buy their votes with their own money and leave them with little to show for it. They’ll see the hundreds of dollars in their bank account, not realising it’s going to get clawed back at tax time, leaving them barely better off overall.

Together, we can counter Harper’s election ploy with hard-hitting, highly targeted ads to let people know the truth about the Harper Conservative’s child benefit, but we have to act fast, and get the ads online and into print while this is still top of mind for millions of Canadians.

Click here to chip in $10, $20 or $50 towards hard-hitting facebook and newspaper ads to warn parents who might get burned by this come tax time.

While outrageously claiming Harper’s new child care cheques mean “Christmas in coming early in July”, Poilievre forgot to mention that Santa will be taking your presents back in the next tax season.

To add insult to injury, Poilievre was also sporting a partisan Conservative Party shirt during his vote-buy – err, promotion tour, which – surprise surprise! – centred on swing ridings the Conservatives need to win the next election.[2]

Not only are the Conservatives deceiving families about how much we can spend, they’re promoting a government program to lock down a partisan vote – in the ridings where vote-splitting gave them a majority in 2011.

It’s a cheap election ploy. We know you won’t fall for it, but we need your help to warn parents about the actual worth of these cheques and how the Harper Conservatives think they can buy their votes.

If we raise $10,000 we’ll blast facebook with a series of highly targeted ads
If we raise $30,000 we’ll run print ads in local newspapers, broadcasting our warning across the country to the families that need to hear them most.

Can you chip in now to send a powerful message to hundreds of thousands of Canadians in battleground ridings across the country?

Advertising is all about volume. The more of us who chip in, the more ads we can run, and the more effective this will be. If thousands of us chip in what we can, we can blanket Conservative Swing Ridings with high-impact ads and make sure Canadians hear the truth about the Conservatives’ plan.

The Leadnow community takes childcare seriously. Thousands of us have listed the creation of a national childcare system as one of our top priorities, but we know that any progress towards building one depends on cooperation across party lines and a Conservative defeat in October. We’ll be there to keep pushing right after the election, but right now, we need to get the message out to Canadians.

Donate to fund powerful ads in the ridings Harper needs most to win again, and counter the Conservatives’ child care spin.

Thanks for all you do.

Net Neutrality Stuff:

Thursday, June 25th, 2015 –

— Below the five equal signs is a message that’s been copied and pasted from my email. Anything that might have been a link in that email is probably not in the document below.

— & This came in email today with a ‘reply-to:’ address  { info@fightforthefuture.org } You’ll have to copy and paste that if you want to reply to them.

=====

We got an amazing response to this email we sent the other day, and it’s not too late to take action to support Net Neutrality.

Bad news: The House Appropriations Committee just voted for 3 provisions that gut Net Neutrality less than a week after the rules finally went into effect.

All of the provisions are poison for Net Neutrality, killing or delaying net neutrality for up to a decade. Big Cable is exploiting the courts and Congress to win one net-neutrality killer lawsuit or bill. To make it so there’s simply no more appetite whatsoever to keep attacking the open Internet, we need to intervene big time.

So we’ve filed to formally intervene in the DC Circuit’s US Telecom Association v. FCC, on the side of the FCC, and will fight Comcast tooth and nail until we win, alongside some of the smartest lawyers and groups out there.

Can you chip in $5 to support our intervention in favor of Net Neutrality?

Yes, I can chip in $5 to fight Team Cable in court.

Yes — and I’ll chip in $5 every month because I know this fight isn’t going to end soon.

Net Neutrality is already one of the top issues of our time, and the new rules have the strongest legal standing possible. But we need to do the work to make the courts and everyone understand them inside and out.

To make sure we show up in court with resounding support, we’re launching huge educational campaigns. We’ll reach people from both sides of the aisle in online/offline communities and critical ad campaigns at key moments, so that support for net neutrality gets stronger day by day.

Team Cable has an array of lawyers and lobbyists hungry to prove themselves and get bigger bonuses. But we’ve got the support of the same powerful grassroots that stopped SOPA, crushed CISPA, and submitted a record number of comments to the FCC in favor of these rules. 

Smart interventions can take on and take down big, entrenched powers. But to get the defense of Net Neutrality off the ground requires a lot of support, including money for things like design, ads, and phone calls. That’s why your donation is critical — so we can go big to protect the open Internet.

We’re only days into net neutrality, and lawsuits are already mounting. Can you make a donation to help save the free and open Internet?

Yes, I’ll chip in $5 to save net neutrality.

As a movement, we won Net Neutrality. Millions of people weighed in and forced the FCC to produce the strongest open Internet protections in history.

That’s the kind of thing we can do when we all take action together — help us launch that kind of effort again now to protect Net Neutrality.

Yes, I’ll donate.

Thanks for joining the fight for the future.
