Happy Turkey Day

I will be watching to see if my favorite Mr Bean episode is on tonight.

I forget if there was a turkey IMP (Individual Meal Pack) ? If there was it couldn;' have been to good or too bad for me not to remember.
I will say the salmon IMP was very nice, quite remarkable when you consider it can be stored for 5 years or so. Thay say there is no MSG in the IMP's but I highly doubt that with a shelf life of 5 years.
MMM track pads.

I hope Our troops have a good thanks giving and I will be sure to include them in my grace and thanks around the dinner table.

canada UN like other responsible nations

This is a map of known deep sea coral formations. My guess is that the reason there isn't a marker on the grand banks is because it has been destroyed already. Ask any deep Sea Bottom Dragger fisherman and he will tell yopu about the coral he has hauled out of his nets and throw overboard to die on the Grand Banks.

It is just amazing how ignorant, lazy, in govt's back pocket, or just plain stupid the MSM can be.
Take for example this quote in all of the MSM outlets. (Regurgetated propaganda) Now this is all about context. If you read the articles you will notice how they don't list the so called (IR) responsible nations? But rather they list the Responsible Nations who are calling for a ban on the destructive practice of bottom trawling. So unless you pay attention you would think that Canada/Ontario (Party Line) is apart of the list of countries that have signed onto the ban instead, Canada is actually one of the irresponsible countries who don't support the ban on Bottom Dragging who don't get listed.
You don't here the so called responsible naions shouting about their stance other than Canada who wants to continue with the status Quo and ensure their ace in the hole doesn't get revealed for what it is Colonialism.

"Canada, like many other respon-sible fishing nations, does not see (a moratorium) as the way forward," Hearn said in a two-page statement. "Real solutions must be practical, enforceable and fair."


The Quote should read

"Canada, (UN) like many other respon-sible fishing nations, does not see (a moratorium) as the way forward," Hearn said in a two-page statement. "Real solutions must be practical, enforceable and fair."
Why won't canada sign onto this call for a ban on Deap sea Bottom Dragging? You would think that the nation that has 40% of it's continental shelf outside the Arbitrary 200 mile EEZ, Where 60% of the WORLDS bottom dragging takes place would be the first to sign onto this ban.

Now why you might ask, well it comes down to trade and trade tarrif concessions.

A prime example would be the Tubot wars when Canada confiscated a spanish dragger for using to small net mesh and other infractions. But once Spain threatened to cancel any and all contracts with Bombardier the Turbot war died faster than it started.

Toe the Party line which is drawn by the Majority of MP's from Ontario. (Hearn's Toes must be glued to that party line of Ontario, and he is too stupid to see it, and deathly afraid of stepping over it) Even the opposition know that their party line and by sheer numbers Ontario's Line is to continue to prosecute the 40% of our continental shelf which lies outside the 200 mile limit as their personal bargaining chip.

The system is flawed and needs to be exposed for what it is a colonialist/federation with Ontario as the centre of the empire and the rest of us are just being used for it's benefit because of our flawed centrist political system with the only equality amongst the partners of this federation being to get out.

Draw up our new terms of union and demand they be met or we will leave that simple. canada isn't a country as such it is a partnership of individual countries who have the option of leaving at any time they want.

Call for a renegotiation of the terms of union that meet our demands or a referendum to go and become masters of our own destiny.

New terms should include
Triple e senate,
One bilingual Supreme Court of Canada judge from every province and territory to represent the provinces morals and ethics and not just Toronto's and Montreals,
Ownership of the entire continental shelf, Where by any fish or benefit from the continental shelf within our area is given directly to NL kinda along the lines of stumpage fees,
School systems must meet the minimum requirements of all federal jobs when it comes to bilingualism.
Remove non-Renewable resource revenues from the claw back of D-Equalization
100% ownership of the continental shelf and the oil and gas there
tax points should be included in the claw back of the D-Equalization formula, Why should Ontario get a free pass.
Federal Presence/ Decision making and top management positions.
Manned military base or bases
National East West Power corridor


Hold a reverse referendum if the parties won't call for one, by not supporting the systemically flawed political system we have through NOT Voting..

As a start

VOCM Voice of the Common Man

Thank you Bill, Randy, Linda, Cheryl, Randy 2 sorry forget he other ones. Oh and of course steel communication.

I promise to be your pavlov dog from here on in . Support comes in many forms .

It seems we are all ok in speaking on VOCM talk shows call in shows but when it comes to getting together and making a difference we lapse in fact we don't even exist no one knows who we are, where we are, or what our concerns are we have become so marginalized we are the invisible province.

I fear that is what the long term future of our people, culture, and collective because without a collective will, knowledge, and understanding being we are out there alone and being alone is a sad sad feeling what do you think Israel's beef and feeling of being without a homeland or place of refug,and home is all about.

We will be forever wandering the streets of eternity. There is always the hope that what there is of us now, will one day meet and be together once again in heaven or shang ralla where ever, even in the same grave yard would be a comfort. In life if not in death.

I for one don't have any idea where i would like to be buried let alone would want to be buried.

My wife is from BC I'm from NL I've lived almost everywhere in Canada and worked throughout the world..

I recently even began thinking that if i were still serving and on tour in some god foresaken part of the world that I would be happy to be poor in my country that I would feel good being buried here in this oplace no one has ever heard of let alone gave a dam about but my country as a people have seen fit to allow me to represent their collective interests by hmmm spreading our style society (culture) god forbid democracy..

In order to be a good soldier you need to realize that there is nothing to fear but fear itself prefect: well trained experienced conditioned and informed.

Anyway I would feel honored to be alloewed to rest in the place I made the ultimate sacrifice for humanity and my fellow bretheren soldiers and citizens.

We came across a grave of a canadian while I was serving in Ethiopia/Eritrea. He had served in WWI I think I didn't actually get to see the grave, wasn't my place nor where there tours being arranged. Likje that would even be contemplated. A crew was set up to go and maintain the grave as wel as document the canadian Expats details. There were also graveyards like you woul;d see in Europe while they might not have been as well maintained or set up as the ones in Europe they were there and in decent shape. We were there to do a job in fact we were there to do a very specific job, 3 month set up. first in.

You know in the former yugoslavia back when we were allowed to drink on tour I spent a fair bit of time in local bars drinking with local people freedom fighters to them all carrying ak's and pistols odd one with a grenade in their pocket you didn't see grenades as much ?

They often referred to Quebec situation in Cananda as being the same as the situation in their country which is now war torn.

I'll edit out he mispellings later hopefully. I can't start to see mistakes. I have enough illiteratcy as it is without compounding it with typos.
 

What came first the Logo or the Vidogo??!!

if i hadda seen the add first i would have liked it much better but i first heard of the logo in descriptive form then in pictoral form and finally i had to search the internet for the vid which i didn't even know existed at this time. Then I heard someone on vocm refer to the vid and I was intreagued. When Iactually took the time to search for find and download the The reason I say seached for and found it because unlike the puter literate masses per capita in NL puters aren't the end all to be all it isn't going to miraculosely make your life easier. It isn't going to cook or pick berries to exist but rather a puter is a tool a very diverse tool once you hook it to the internet AHHH god I'd die if I ever had to go back to dial up. It would be like going without running water tin comparison to advancements in our civilization.

I couldn't imagine using the internet on dial up nowwa days Years ago when I was on dial up and working from a 386 it was a pain and torment on a V90. With one join fronm teh puter to the pone lines. Not 3-4 extensions with 2 phone lines and 10 phones . I always amaxzed though that the same phone lines on DSL using digital technology encription I had to turn of pictures so I could searh then once I found what I was looking for I would turn picts back on.

I was looking a while ago for this option in the browser and I copuldn't actually find it. I don't know it was removed or it is buried further down or abstract place maybe even a name change ? I remember some of the name changes from one OS to the next and uggggh.
Then there is Linux
Actually linus could possible work beter for dial up because of the text based GUI. Well Naw if you don't know anything about computers which isd more than likely the case if dial up is all thats available.

Dial up is ok for email-without images. Like this video would be an overnight endeaveour. It isn't that the computers are slow it is the dial up that is old.

"Goose Bay and other Boondoggles"

sue from sue's blog does a pretty good job of putting kenny and canada's Upalongs in their place.

You see Kenny thinks that promises were made by both governments to get votes. REALLY KENNY - AND WHAT DO YOU THINK YOUR PROVINCE OF ONTARIO GETS FOR VOTES? DO YOU THINK ONTARIO GETS EXTRA MONEY AND OFFICES AND JOBS FROM THE FEDS FOR VOTES?
You see Kenny thinks that in this changing world of technology and war strategies the low-flying exercises are diminishing thereby making the base redundant. REALLY KENNY - AND DO YOU THINK THAT IN THIS DAY AND AGE OF I.T. THAT OTTAWA HAS BECOME REDUNDANT AS THESE FEDERAL AGENICES AND HEADQUARTERS CAN BE LOCATED ANYWHERE? KENNY DO YOU THINK IN THIS DAY OF EVOLVING DEMOCRACIES YOU AND YOUR INSTITUTION HAVE BECOME REDUNDANT? KENNY DO YOU THINK THAT IF OTTAWA DOES NOT KEEP HACKING AWAY AT NEWFOUNDLAND AND LABRADOR - THAT CONFEDERATION WILL BECOME REDUNDANT TO THE PEOPLE OF THIS PROVINCE.
You see Kenny can't see any other military purpose for having the coast of Canada protected by the province which is the east coast. KENNY GET OUT A MAP AND SEE WHAT IS BETWEEN THE ATLANTIC OCEAN AND YOU - US. PERHAPS YOU SHOULD RECALL 911 AND WHERE OTTAWA WANTED THE PLANES TO LAND SO WE DID NOT THREATEN OUR "IMPORTANT CITIES".
