Salute to Canada
Polistra thinks a salute to Canada is timely. Today is their Flag Day, and Canada has been showing considerable sanity.
First, Canada didn't have a financial crash in 2008 because Canada never repealed its 'Glass-Steagall' type laws. Unlike US and UK, Canada never surrendered to Goldman.
Second, after many years of following Gaia even more zealously than we did, Canada is seriously cutting loose from Green Suicide. Canceling subsidies for hippieshit wind "power", officially pulling out of the Kyoto tyranny, and opening wide to oil and gas exploration.
Why does Canada hold firm against Goldman and recover more quickly from insanity? Because it retains a natural parliamentary system. When we switched to our purely abstract republic in 1776, based on lunatic Philosophical Theories about "rights" and "equality", we created the conditions for total paralysis and total corruption. It took a long time, but we arrived at the destination in 1989, and now we're just about dead.
Radio Canada ran its own brief salute to Flag Day
this morning, including a soul-stirring rendition of the old Maple Leaf
anthem in Sacred Harp harmony.
Makes me wonder why they stick with the drab and vague 'Oooooooo Cannnnadaaaaaaaaaaaa' anthem when this perfect
and snappy little song is available!

Canada is getting even better:
Canada has threatened a trade war with European Union over the bloc's plan to label oil from Alberta's vast tar sands as highly polluting...ABOUT FUCKING TIME!
"Canada will not hesitate to defend its interests, including at the World Trade Organisation," state letters sent to European commissioners by Canada's ambassador to the EU and its oil minister.
The elderly lunatic mass-murdering wacked-out hypercriminals of EU are finally getting some serious punchback from countries with real influence. (It wouldn't matter if, say, Belize or Mali threatened a trade war.)
