selling the herd

The Journal switched over to comments linked to FB to clean up the comments by using Facebook names.
The previous comment section was one of the most informative and civil of any I've been on so I'm not buying the reason.
I've posted my blog and my recent  objection via Facebook so I've never hidden.
They switched over as an excuse to delete previous comments. The opportunity to say no one saw that coming the next time government would be faced with the truth needed to be preserved.
All the odds on a catastrophic spill from the gateway pipe was there. The real economic benefits of the Keystone pipeline was there. The false claims in favor of increasing raw resourse exports were all answered, with facts.
We live in a land rich in raw resources with the worlds best customer at our front door.
Those facts compelled me to write, government that backs exporting raw resources over value added is selling the herd because they're too lazy to cut the hay field.
They said there's no money in refineries even though refineries increased margins double to triple in the last few years.
They didn't have an answer why it was good for Canada to export raw and import finished products. The market is here and so could the jobs if it wasn't shipped half way around the world and back.
They said government needed the revenue to support our social programs. lol most Canadians feel they pay more than enough taxes so its more of a statement on governments fiscal management.
They said exporting eaw resources will bring the long promised prosperity. Alberta has been developing the oil sands for forty years and still spending money borrowed from our children. BC built hydro dams that powered up sawmills mines and smelters. Cheap power, lots of lumber and jobs created value added industries. Now BC exports raw logs, electricity and most concentrates along with a $1.1B deficit, to be paid by our children.
BC will save Albertans from themselves.
The journal dumped the comments because the government needs plausible deniability. Exporting raw resources is a bad environmental plan, a very bad economic plan and a disastrous political plan. Consider why government has quashed Charter rights based on where you live in order to push ahead..
Deleting the comments won't change the fact exporting raw resources is selling the herd when the population wants value added industries. The lastest story out if the PM is value added will require substantial investment by tax payers. That's not an excuse its an admission international investors rate Canada as unacceptable risk. Gen U is coming.
It certainly won't change no justice no investment.
We saw it coming even if government says no one did.


  1. If you're wondering where that leaves us.
    Value added requires investment. The government had full knowledge a decade ago they needed to change the failed federal policies from increasing investment risk. By 2006 investors had left leaving only investment in raw resources and currency speculation.
    With Gen U only a few years out it will take more than words from a powerful arm of government recognising value added as the best choice.
    Investors want to see the situation handled and the requirements have not changed.

    Presumed Joint Physical Custody

  2. Big money is always right and they say the damage done by sole custody is unacceptable.
    Cooking the crime rate didn't fool them, the results are in. Government knows, its the reason for all the trade missions,, that came back empty.
    A dozen more trade missions won't change the facts, no value added investment until the law is changed.
    That means bigger deficits and higher taxes and more crime.
    Government created this mess and they need to
    clean it up with more than the foolhardy tough on crime sewer soup.
    I've done my whistle blower part.
    If you don't know where this needs to go I suggest you consider it, my part is done.
    Happy trails

  3. I've delisted this blog because so few get it. Setting aside those that attack from some rooted automatic mechanism to defend few see that sole custody is all about 3 things, government revenue, votes and expanding the justice industry. No where can the best interests of the child be found yet somehow the gang capital title must be my fault.
    My timing on shipping this blog into the past is well timed, timed to a different trail.

    1. So few get it...
      Gender bias. Really???
      The courts first mandate is the best interests of the child yet not one court in Canada has considered the best interests. For the courts to completely ignore their priority concern in favor of gender bias is ludacris. The notion that a handful of radical feminist politicians could subvert the courts away from the best interests of the child is meritless. There is no legal or scientific basis, there is no evidense that supports any subversion of the courts.
      Hiding their actions in the cloak of feminisim is a distraction but effective enough to you look at single mothers leading the charge into poverty even with child support and extra social safety nets.
      Believe what you want, Gen U is already gearing up for the street.
      Stralh says there is no problem, that works for me. If there is no problem is can't be my problem which is which this blog is now just a note in my history.
