an exerpt from "The Mindscape of Alan Moore"

"Quitting my day job and starting my life as a writer certainly was a tremendous risk.
It was a fool's leap, a shot in the dark.
But anything of value in our lives- whether it be a career, a work of art, a relationship- will always start with such a leap. And in order to be able to make it, you have to put aside the fear of failing and the desire of succeeding. You have to do these things completely purely without fear, without desire.
Because things that we do without lust or result, are the purest actions that we shall ever undertake."

don't be scared, just AWARE!

While we were all sleeping, Stephen Harper has gone and officially endorsed the assimilation of Canada into the pending North American Union. Read about it here. For those of you who don't know, the plan is to meld Mexico, USA and Canada into one nation, under the pretense that trade and economic concerns, as well as security issues will be better handled. The currency for the new nation is the Amero. Read more about that at this site.

Just recently, The Harper Record was released, being "the most comprehensive analysis of the Conservative minority government’s record to date". Theresa Healey, the editor and Canadian Labour Congress Researcher, has this to say about it:

“Contrary to the general perception that this has been a moderate government, this book reveals that it, in fact, has taken significant steps to transform Canada in a very short time. Harper's very conservative vision has been advanced across a broad range of policies. It is a deeply troubling prelude of things to come."

You can go out and buy the book or download it for free here.

What will be, will be, of course. But when it comes to stuff like this, I'd rather be prepared than caught off guard. And we certainly can't count on the mainstream media to be filling us in, or heaven forbid, the ones we've elected to take care of us. So that's why I am take care of you, and you can take care of me too...hmmm..there's a song in there somewhere...

Go forth and educate thyselves...and remember to have fun doing it. We are, after all, spinning around on this big rock in the middle of nowhere.
