US Government Sore Losers in Not So Neighborly Dispute

I’m getting a little tired of being lectured by that “pin-headed, pencil-necked” whiner David Wilkins, about what Canada should do and not do with respect to the failed softwood lumber talks. Wilkins, the US Ambassador to Canada, said today that Canadian politicians should stop their ”emotional tirades” and order the country’s trade representatives back to […]

Lost and Found in Gaza

The evacuation of Gaza is now completed, and the world has been watching closely. As a proud member of the Jewish People, I have nothing but admiration for the soldiers of the Israel Defense Forces, for the humane way they carried out this most difficult military assignment. Most soldiers train to fight against their enemies; […]

Mexico; Look What We Did

The number-one question people ask us is, “What possessed you to move to Mexico?” The number-one answer we give is that we simply could no longer afford to live in America, so we found a country where we could, and moved there. We found ourselves in a position not unlike many Americans: A major illness […]

In Defense of the Feds Vs Katrina

I, too, am saddened by the disaster in New Orleans and other areas effected and affected by the storm that stomped its way through there. *BUT* jumping on the US Agencies for in-adequate response isn’t right either. FEMA, the main agency to respond to these events can not respond, by law, until requested by the […]

Is George Bush Two-Faced?

Yes, Bush is two-faced. The two sides of the faces are total opposites. His personal left side shows he is happy and relaxed. The professional right side of his face is more stern and guarded. The striking difference indicates he is very moody. His SQUARE FACE indicates he is confident, a freedom lover, optimistic, aggressive, […]

Victims of Child Support

“Similar to Medieval Inquisitions, judges have been given the authority, in secret proceedings… to investigate, prosecute, and sentence men without any legal counsel” The Victims Extorting monies from one group and discriminatingly and disproportionately distributing them to another does not constitute a legitimate solution. In the past,whenever proof has been requested to support their claims […]

Pending Oil Crisis

Heavens, what are we up against? It seems these days that we are inundated with worsening situations, not just in Canada but worldwide:  Increasing terrorism threats; Global arrests of Al Qaeda operatives; More corruption in our Canadian Liberal federal government; A backlash against Official Bilingualism resulting in Mini Official Bilingualism referendums, that incidentally are overwhelmingly […]

A Noble Attempt To Bring Peace in Assam

United Liberation Front of Assam (ULFA), one of the most powerful militant organizations operating in the northeast region is in the limelight again but this time for a better reason. Attempts to initiate talks with the center and the group are in progress. The group was established in 1979 by Paresh Baruah along with his […]

Bush Victory: A Defeat for the Have-Nots?

The shouting is over and directions for the next four years selected. Judging by past behavior (the best predictor, psychologically, of future behavior), we can look forward to: 1. Continued and probably expanded tax cuts for the wealthiest Americans and large Corporations. It is no surprise that the stock market soared on the election news: […]

A Viewpoint Not Represented in the Mainstream Media

The news media will regularly present views from Democratic (liberal), Republican (neoconservative), and independent (moderate) perspectives. However, I rarely, if ever, see my point of view represented in the mainstream media. Let me begin to sum up my politics by saying that I believe our most fundamental right as human beings is the right to […]

A Look Ahead to 2008 (Part I)

Just as everyone has breathed a sigh of relief at the end of 2004 presidential campaign, I would like to take a quick look ahead to 2008. Unless George W. Bush is unable to complete his second term, 2008 will bring the third open presidential election (no incumbent running) in 20 years. Even though that’s […]

A Look Ahead to 2008 (Part II)

Last week, I began my look ahead to the 2008 presidential campaign with the potential Republican candidates. Today, I will continue by taking a look at the potential Democratic candidates. Among them are New York Senator and former First Lady Hillary Clinton, former Vice President Al Gore, New Mexico Governor Bill Richardson, Indiana Senator Evan […]
