| I am wishing my American friends a joyful, over-fed lazy day in your
| back-yards, at your pools, making burnt offerings on you BBQ's.
Thanks for your good wishes.
| My sister, my 3 nieces and one nephew, with their children are all
| celebrating a day off, with pay.
| I sure enjoyed Canada Day, just this last Sunday.
| I also reflected on my freedom being eroded, bit by bit.
| I also reflected on my friends' freedoms, south of the border, being
| taken away from them by leaps and bounds.
It sounds like it might be worth reminding you that freedom comes from
within. It can neither be given nor taken by someone else. May you
always have the courage to say "No" and /mean/ it - and may you have a
life filled with joyful affirmation.
| When will you guys have a press again which isn't afraid to tell the
| truth? One that isn't owned by GE or Time Warner? One that isn't
| bamboozled into being political shills for the election-campaign
Who knows - true courage has never been in oversupply. "pork barrel",
"pandering", "influence peddling", and "favor seeking" aren't new
concepts. You talk as if these problems were new - they're not.
| Libby (Liebowitz) being 'excused' was another example of the
| pre-Iranian-invasion arrogance, rivaling the 1936 mood in pre-WW2
Is this news in Canukistan? You're a bit behind the curve on this one.
Commutation for Scooter isn't the real scandal, it'll be the last
minute pardon for Shooter.
| You see, Bush doesn't give a fuck.
| He knows that nobody has any balls left to stand up to him and his
| power-grab. He's laughing at all of you: Dem's and GOP's alike.
| Don't expect any changes on 2008... there likely won't BE any
| elections anyway.
Now you're talking nonsense, and you're selling your friends short -
very short indeed.
| Have a nice day...especially when you're singing about the rockets'
| red glare.
Heh! If I were to sing, then you'd best be glad that I'm not where you
can hear me :-D
