Well, we're sure to displease our folks from "da Rock", but jazus mary an josef, what in de hell are you guys thinkin? The cod is almost all gone because of years of overfishing - and when the government says let's just stop for awhile and see if the stock can recover, you all go crazy and trash their office like this? Man - that's some good Newfy hospitality, that. Sure shows how clever we all are too, pouring coke in computers and throwin files all around the office. I understand you're going to face some hardships about income - on the other hand, of course, actions have consequences, and continued overfishing for years and years in the face of scientist's warnings about endangering the fishery - has finally caught up to you. Again, to be more accurate, if we keep in mind the fishery has been in trouble for quite awhile, and been severely curtailed. But I'd like to know what is in the minds of these people - so there's only a few fish left - an by god we'll catch the last of em before someone else gets em? If the fishing is such a great way of life (I ain't saying it ain't!) - then why are you telling your kids and grandkids - F*** YOU!! - NO FISH FOR YOU!! - WE'RE GONNA GET EM ALL NOW!!?? - is that good thinking or what? Or is the fishing so bad that you want to take all them damn fish so your kids quit living such a poor life? I don't know, me - why ARE you acting like this?

And don't get me started on your hand-in-hand desire to kill all them damn seals that's eatin all YER cod!!!! jazus mary and whoever.

And here's one on the same issue from an ol bud of mine Mike Harris (no, a different one from the fascist american wannabe who got paid to run Ontario into the ground) - Mike takes a run at a lot of people here - the government as well (Mike does that a lot, and pretty well, usually) - it's worth noting for his second last sentence (good writer, our Mike) -

Bellicosity, bull, and in the end, a spinelessness that is heartbreaking: All of these key features of our national fisheries policy were on display this week on Canada's East Coast.
In New Brunswick, the federal government touched off a riot by trying to suck and blow at the same time on the issue of conservation of fish stocks. Federal Fisheries Minister Robert Thibault cut the crab quota by 20%, an understandable move in light of scientific advice that the stock is fragile and could be depleted by overfishing.....

If DFO continues to place human politics at the heart of the fishery, the only thing left in the ocean will be memories.

Conspiracy crusader doubts official 9/11 version
By MICHELLE LANDSBURG, Toronto Star, May 11 2003

Barrie Zwicker gazes calmly into the camera, hands clasped, voice clear and resonant, looking the quintessential Canadian progressive: a colourful knitted vest over an open-collared shirt, a neat little beard, a personality that radiates boyish, almost naive friendliness.

Not a shard of irony, not a sliver of petulant, up-to-date narcissism.

Perfect. You couldn't possibly be more agreeable or less threatening.

RM Comments: Well - this is quite a shocker - a major columnist in a major Canadian paper actually saying there are some problems with the official 9/11 story!! I expect she's going to be hearing about this! But everyone ought to be asking a lot of questions - as she says - "And if you call him a conspiracy theorist, call me one, too, because I agree with Zwicker when he says, "I don't know exactly what happened, but something smells very fishy." Even more rank-smelling is the refusal of most Canadian journalists to ask embarrassingly uncool questions about one of the worst catastrophes of our time."

As you will see if you peruse the site a bit (RM - not the Star!!), it is the opinion of RM that the whole 9/11 story is a mass of lies - there are just too many unanswered questions to be believing these people (and as the "Smirk" and his government have been showing the last several months, "Hey - lies 'r' us!!" - unbelievable how so few people are calling them on this shit - everyone afraid of the bully in the schoolyard, I guess - I would have thought we had more adults around - but then - I dream a lot. Where's Atticus when you need him? Or Michael Valentine Smith? Kwai Chang? Someone?!?) - the biggest military the world has ever seen, with the biggest budget and most paranoid controllers, couldn't get defensive aircraft in the air over Washington for over two hours? - just how fucking stupid do you have to be to believe that?!?!? (so why DOES everyone pretend to? - a lot of work for some shrinks here....). And if a lot of people don't start demanding a lot of answers real soon, it will be too late to even ask the questions. Heil Hitler! - or whoever (sorry - I just can't say Heil B***! - at least Hitler had charisma and spoke for himself, but this Bush character is a sad caricature, a puppet, a semi-literate joke, a pathetic thing to be the President of the United States - one has to go back to characters like Caligula or Nero for any kind of comparison - even guys like Mulroney in Canada had some personal charisma - but Bush? What a sad state of affairs for Americans. Guys like Jefferson or Franklin, who started that great country with its great ambitions, must be so devastated, if they're watching!. But Orwell would have understood the phenomena well. Anybody read 1984 lately?

Ah well - the glass is empty, the victuals is on the table, and nappy time is getting close. Talk to y'all later. workworkwork. bitchbitchbitch. Write if you like.

ACKNOWLEDGEMENTS: With thanks to the Editors of the Toronto Star, Globe and Mail, Ottawa Citizen, Ch'town Guardian, Vancouver Sun, and others I cannot think of at the moment, for their refusal to print my letters over the last few years on various issues of national import - had I even a hope of being printed occasionally in these fora and my voice acknowledged in the national debate, I would undoubtedly have not bothered putting all this together. Cheers!
