I don't like the looks of this.

So Prime Minister Stephen Harper and his Environment Minister Betty Boop figure they'll have a handle on greenhouse gasses around 2050, do they? Great. Just in time for this.

There's always something creepy when I see American liberals/progressives talking about the inevitability of conquest for resources, like it's completely beyond their control. I mean, shouldn't they be talking about the morality of that, or is that something Americans simply believe only applies to other people?

I get the same creepy feeling when I hear American liberals talking about moving to Canada because the US is a lost cause. Sure, they can immigrate if they want, but aren't they supposed to have a glorious republic that has been crafted specifically to ensure life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness? I don't remember seeing Canada mentionned anywhere as a fail-safe.

*sigh* Oh, well. We can always get nukes...probably within a week.

I find it rather interesting that with the current state of the environment, Stevo and Rona are going with a 40 year plan, as if we have 40 years left to play with.
Anyone notice the bizarre weather in the last few years? If the weather continues to mutate at the present speed, I wonder whether there will be anyplace that will be the breadbasket of North America. If the glaciers continue to melt, and the sea level rises, then most of the arable land could be under water - sea water that is.
I'm worried about my children, but darned glad I won't live to see it.

Betty Boop would be insulted.

Come on, so Ambrose has some hair. She's long short of any Boop.

Oh man, that's gonna so SUCK!
Harper and Strahl will have gutted our Wheat Board and all our grain will belong to them. Then what. ?
I'll be dead by then most likely and won't have a say in the matter, unless my province sticks with Health Canada Act, or b) I win a crooked lottery. Do you know how long the waiting list is to get one of those lottery kiosks? Check it out, it's way past 2040.
Anyways, I've given up lottery tickets of any form, and am trying to find nutritional food which is economical, made in Canada and doesn't involve wheat.
Or barley. Which is hard. Especially the barley part ;)
On a brighter note, the new gun freedoms from scrapping the long gun registry means that when my great uncle kicks the bucket and buys the farm, whoever finds his blunderbuss first is gonna survive at least one battle.
