Canadians for Canada Coalition (CCC) - United Left, if you will - but bottom of the line - Get Rid of Corporate Government in Canada - 2004 Federal Election may be your last chance - act NOW PLEASE!!

The Debt Conspiracy Theory Fact - do you believe people who email you from Africa wanting to give you 10 million bucks? No? Well WHY DO YOU BELIEVE THE NATIONAL DEBT IS LEGITIMATE?!?!? (Sorry - I get excited about this...)

911 - as important as the debt scam - ask yourself why you are so afraid to admit the truth here, even when it's been kicking you in the face almost since it happened? When the world you live in is operating under a lie this big and obvious and monstrous, you have no security whatsoever.

060828 - lordy lordy lordy the time flies - I don't know if this is fire or if it will fly, but for the latest observations on the secretarial service the Canadian media is providing for the Canadian elite these days in their endless indoctrination of the Canadian sheep herd sorry I don't really think that people, from the outside the box perspective of Green Island - it's now happening at Green Island Veritas

040822 - and just a small rebirth ... From Here to There

040715 - just a small phyre ...

I've decided it's time to do the phoenix thing. I don't have much new left to say, there's not much new happening around - all variations on the same old same old, the more things change the more they remain the same and all that - and I've never got much enjoyment out of flogging dead horses, which the idea of waking up enough people in Canada to actually start doing something about the problems we face in time to do something about them before they become critical seems to be. The country will or will not survive, will be a progressive sort of democracy or American puppet or some pathetic deadish sort of thing not sure at all what it wants to be in between, with or without RM.

And I have many other things to be getting at, where it seems to me my time might more fruitfully be spent. RM was fun for awhile, a good catharsis, good words practice, but I guess I've gotten rid of most of the bile that has/had built up over the years - it is really, really, really frustrating to want to comment, to want to be heard in the public debate, and none of the media will print anything you write. But during all of my shouting and ranting at them and others the last year, I had considerable opportunity and cause to consider the reasons for this (one of the reasons I write has always been that it helps clarify things), and understand things, I believe, somewhat better now, which eases the frustration at least about that, if not about the seeming obliviousness of my fellow Canadians to the seriousness of the situation they - we - are in, or their acceptance of the lies under which they live - the lie of "democracy", the lie of a free and responsible media, the lie of freedom itself, and all the lesser lies needed to create the conditions for the bigger lies. All reports indicate that the average German citizen thought things were really pretty great or at least good in Germany in the mid-1930s. I believe that we in Canada are in a similar period right now - we don't have a Hitler at the helm, but we do have a government that is about to show its true colors, and do so in a way that will be very destructive for everyone, and very difficult to stop. As I have oft said, the government has not been training and equipping our Canadian police forces with great wonderful new tools to suppress people the last several years to fight some bogeyman terrorists, although that has been the excuse.

But enough. Enough. I said enough! Those horses have been flogged and flogged again.

So I thank those few of you who have been reading and listening - and maybe I'll put the next half million words into something else you'll find interesting and useful as well this coming time - check back now and then if you want to see what happens when ?????? crawls forth from the ashes of the phoenix phyre of the bird I birthed last year and called RM, and which has lived a relatively short but certainly not quiet existance, even if most of the ranting has been done in mostly empty halls. I think I've cleared the tubes out, prepared a space around myself for perspective, and sussed out some new tools and knowledge and ideas with which to operate, and we (I and my many muses who are never silent for long, or short of wonderful or crazy ideas) are ready for a more effective approach, of some sort, to the struggle for a better world.

I'm not closing the site, just - like I said - doing a phoenix thing. One thing about phoenix things is that you never know what you'll wake up as. Or when for that matter. Sort of like Karma.

I do trust something will emerge from the ashes of RM, however, and probably sooner than RM emerged from the last immolation, the ending of a tab called the Alternative Voice I did in PEI in 92 or thereabouts - I have no intention of stopping writing or thinking about how to make things better around here - I don't think I can, I think it's a genetic thing somehow, I'm hardwired to do this - there is no question that I will continue to be immensely pissed off at what is happening in my country and world, and I do also believe that one cannot turn one's back on injustice and wrongdoing if one wishes to call oneself truly human. Which I do aspire to - it is distasteful in the extreme to think one might be no better than the likes of Mulroney or Bush or the multitude of others like them, whose only motto seems to be mememe fuckyoufuckyoufuckyou lielielie hahahasucker. What a disgrace that we allow and even encourage people like this as our "leaders" - it does indeed say as much about "us" as it does about them. No wonder, as Calvin once noted, that intelligent species from other places have not contacted us.

So - as they say where I hail from - catch ya later.

After the bonfire. (hahaha I was gonna say conflagration - but it looked wrong - too pretentious - I am, after all, just a small phoenix. hahahaha. so far). After the ashes ......

The greatest dangers to liberty lurk in the insidious encroachment by men of zeal, well meaning but without understanding.

I prefer to be true to myself, even at the hazard of incurring the ridicule of others, rather than to be false, and to incur my own abhorrence.

"Be who you are and say what you feel, because those who mind don't matter and those who matter don't mind.” - Dr Seuss - man he was smart....... I gotta read some of that stuff again ..... that's almost as good a play on words as the great old line about comforting the afflicted and afflicting the comfortable.....

George Orwell: During times of universal deceit, telling the truth becomes a revolutionary act

“It is difficult to get a man to understand something when his salary depends upon his not understanding it.” (Upton Sinclair - great writer - reading stuff like this helps understand how the problems of today are NOT new!!! - and is a clear indication of the truth of the old saying that he who does not know history is destined to repeat it, or whatever)

Write if ya want (ya gotta take the xxx off the front - I'm trying to reduce the intake from the spam assholes (oh yes you fucking are - it is NOT amusing - get a fucking life why don't you, instead of bothering people - how fucking stupid can you be?? If you were the last fucking product on earth I wouldn't buy anything from you!! Fuck.)).

What direct action did you take today to do something to get rid of corporate government in Canada besides deleting spam? Do you feel that it was enough, given the situation? Will you feel content telling that to your grandchildren, should they survive, and the country, and the planet?

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 not have bothered putting all this together. Cheers!

(for the legal-minded types - all this stuff not otherwise credited to some newspaper or something IS original, and thus copyright by Rude Macedon - I don't even have to say it - check it out - but given that, repost at will, with acknowledgement. Letting me know (remove the xx - see above HAHAHAA) would be nice too - and we do want to be nice people in a nice world, don't we? Isn't that why we are doing what we are doing, to get rid of the liars and crooks (NOT nice people) who are running things now?)

8,978,976,745 people (that'd be yer SCpoll, correct within 0.5 percentage points, 18 or 19 times out of 23, as long as it's Tuesday and the moon is full where you sit, and there hasn't been a special dispensation by Neptune cancelling those caveats under security code X37.25, and nobody was lying or trying to get off the phone quick because they were watching Survivor or Bangkok Ladies on Motorcycles) have visited this site in the last 13 or so hours, Paul Martin's our new PM and owes the Bay St. Boys 12 million worth of favors and George Bush is talking to ALLAH on his red phone, direct line, as you read. Which of those statements do you find the most unbelievable? Why? Do you know where Frodo and Gandalf went on that boat? Can we call them? Maybe the really nice elf lady too HAHAHA!!! And Smith - don't forget Smith ....
