I’m a coward

January 16, 2013

You can too! Change doesn’t require just hero’s and loud mouths. Revolution can come from quiet, reserved people as well- even cowards. Another good example of cowardice- stealing ideas. I took this idea of multi-tier dissent from Huffington Post or somewhere, not even sure. They are second tier and were talking about the flak the first tier gets. My addition to this concept of course is the third tier, the viewing gallery. The place where we can laugh, point and get angry without sparking too much ire from the establishment.

Geoengineering: Dumping Iron in the Ocean

January 16, 2013

Dumping iron in the ocean to save the environment. Its about as logical as saving the economy by bailing out the banks that have destroyed it. Or shooting yourself in the foot to train for a marathon.

The Remi Review – Episode 1

May 4, 2012

Its a little crappy, kind of slow, has its moments. But an exciting start none the less. Topics will range, there will be guests. Shot, edited and designed in one day- which will only get easier. The format and performance will need some refining, but i’m really happy with how it looks. Oh and notices how well my arm works already! Dr. Theo kicks ass.

Captain American

October 22, 2011

About 2 weeks ago i was in the mood for an American propaganda flick, this movie did not disappoint. USA policing the world fighting evil bringing freedom and liberty to savages around the globe. Inspire young Americans to fight in today’s pointless wars by glorifying WWII. But despite popular opinion formed from movies and video games, individuals are not successful in war. You will not ‘find your identity’ in war. Your best bet to stay alive and help your fellow soldiers is to toe the line, be like everyone else and do exactly as you’re told….Ok enough ranting, as stated earlier i was in the mood for this……So now, finally, the reason why i am typing. ….Disgusted that Hitler wasn’t evil enough, the movie’s villain goes rogue and splits from the Nazi. I never got into 40’s era propaganda comics but, they’re kidding right, Hitler wasn’t a big enough villain? They actually needed to create a WWII character who is worse than Hitler. Although you can’t see it, i am shaking my head.

You Built It, You Bought It.

May 22, 2011

You’ve got a sweet tooth, you bought your favourite morsel from the corner store and carried it home. It’s got dried pineapple from South America, macadamias from Madagascar and ted nugent from Michigan…. If we ignore your own physical exertion, what’s your carbon footprint?… Zero! All you did was eat it! In no way did you force someone to refine oil into that wrapper, grow sugarcane or burn gallons of fuel shipping across oceans.

Fear of a Red Planet, the Fake Global Recession.

June 17, 2009

There is no such thing as a “global recession”. A recession occurs when a country is having a tough time for some reason. They are loosing out to other countries in the world and have to deal with less. You know, people stopped liking our bananas for a while or something and our jerk neighbour who produces mangoes is flourishing. (more…)

How to win at Globalization

May 25, 2009


The old conservative principle was to help business to better the national economy. Sure they’re a dirty oil company, but their OUR dirty oil company. Cut corporate taxes to support them, subsidies to encourage growth, ease regulations, which in turn benefits us all- like giving the ball to your fastest player. (more…)

Why you shouldn’t worry about the economy.

November 27, 2008


Its all a sham my friends, we’re not all going to be out of work living in our cars. North Americans have one quality that guarantees our economic survival- we are the perfect consumers. (more…)

the sun was the only paper at the laudromat

September 17, 2008

There was an article today by Christie Blatchford where she said she didn’t really understand what that whole “carbon footprint” business is about and made a quip to show that she doesn’t really care about it either.

Not surprising from a baby boomer. I suppose if i were a member of the most environmentally destructive group of people that ever walked the earth i may want to hide my shame in ignorance as well.
