canada got prorogued

Definition of the prefix “Pro-” 

  1. [adverb] on the affirmative side
  2. [noun] an athlete (politician?-mm) who plays for pay
  3. [noun] an argument in favor of a proposal
  4. [adjective] in favor of (an action or proposal etc.); “a pro vote”

Definition of “rogue”

A French word, which in that language signifies proud, arrogant. In
  some of the ancient English statutes it means an idle, sturdy beggar, which
  is its meaning in law. Rogues are usually punished as vagrants. Although the
  word rogue is a word of reproach, yet to charge one as a rogue is not
  actionable.  
A deliberately dishonest person; a knave; a cheat.
        [1913 Webster]

So a pro-rogue is ? an arrogant person who is deliberately dishonest and argues in favor of handouts for the idle?

because it certainly doesn’t hold its Latin meaning:

Latin prorogare, literally: to ask publicly

 Canada is not a Republic. It is a monarchy. Our head of state is Queen Elizabeth.

What you thought we have her on the money because she looks good???

 Apparently, no constitutional monarchy in the entire world has ever allowed a prorogue to fend off a vote of non-confidence or to discourage the formation of a coalition government. 

So who in history has used the power of prorogue to retain power?

1629     King Charles I          England

1799     Napoleon                   France

1913     Victoriano Huerta   Mexico

1933    Adolf Hitler                Germany

1936    Francisco Franco     Spain

1939    Benito Mussolini      Itlay

1973    Augusto Pinochet     Chile

2008   Stephan Harper        Canada

Still think Canada is a great liberal democracy? just wait…

Canada Rejects Global Financial Overhaul?

Bloomberg Saturday, Nov 1, 2008

Canadian Finance Minister Jim Flaherty warned that the world’s largest economies shouldn’t re-engineer the global financial system, and said the Group of Seven nations hasn’t considered intervening in currency markets.

Flaherty, in an interview with Bloomberg Television yesterday in New York, said the best approach is for the G-7 governments to focus first on shoring up their own regulatory frameworks.

“We don’t need to recreate the world right now,” Flaherty said. “What people expect of us, quite frankly, in our countries is to get our own houses in order.”

The U.S. will host a global economic summit of 20 world leaders in Washington beginning Nov. 14. The agenda will include discussion of the causes of the financial crisis and a review of progress in addressing them.

vancouver : the time before condos

well today, oct 30, DERA helped re-establish a tent site for a few homeless on Glen, in Vancouver’s East Side on an empty city lot from which they had been kicked earlier this week. The city has not responded to the requests to find housing for these people, and despite threats tonight they are staying on that city lot until they recieve word on where they are to be housed.

During a court ruling earlier this month, testimony was given as to the dangers of sleeping on the street, such as hypothermia, and trench foot. These people are: in an act of desperation, attempting to keep what little shelter over their heads as is possible without housing; in order to protect themselves from the elements until that housing is provided.
 

As you can see from this 1886 archival picture, Vancouver City hall has even found itself run by homeless immigrants who lived in a tent city.!

VANOC losing at olympic trials

seems like VANOC is failing at everything except being liars.

what with a budget overrun on security, and a budget overrun on the olympic village that has a credit problem. throw in the key venue whistler/ blackcomb being 1.7 billion in debt.

and VANOC is about as charming as a dog pissing on your leg with its copyright arrogance.

not to mention native land claims, the human rights complaint sent to the UN, the failure to build the level of housing that they promised, and the ‘spirit train’ flop.

so it shouldn’t be too hard to answer the question; why resist 2010?

bling my shipping container

shipping containers changed the world.

and for some time now they have been getting recycled into housing.

check out the 12 Shipping Container Housing Ideas over at Treehugger.

really though the reason the containers are cheap and available is because of capitalist overproduction. so people exporting from China consider it cheaper to sell it or scrap it than to return it to China. Ottawa thinks it they are great for housing artists.

and the housing is working out great, but be careful which one your walking into. they also make great prisons! The USA has used them to just truck people around, but ooops. they  asphyxiated their prisoners. the USA has applied the modular idea to other new prisons.

underwhelming elections

so Harper and the Conservative party won another minority government in Canada.

you can see the results on a nice interactive map here.

great. more ‘harmonization’ with the US then. more war. less social services.

not that Canada really tried to change things, as this turnout was a record low in the history of Confederation. what can you say? our system sucks.  can’t we please move beyond ‘capitalist democracy’!

The only bright side to this is that there is more women elected than ever.

lets just do away with wasting money on pretending to be a democracy and admit money is king and we are ruled by a monarchy.

Canada is a constitutional monarchy. Since 1534, when the King of France claimed possession of what is now Canada, the history of our country has been marked by the reigns of an uninterrupted succession of monarchs, both French and British, who have had a significant influence on our country’s development.

you know there is a reason the Queen is on the money, and when land claim issues come up it is  ‘vs. the queen’. 

hope you like living in police state.
