America divided: Common Wisdom
Future historians will look back at this election as one of the most shameful events in American history, because of what it says about the majority of the voting public on Nov. 2, 2004, a date that will live in infamy.

A Dark Day in America: Bush takes presidency
Bush's popular vote outcome is not surprising to me. Bush has been always successful in fear mongering the "patriotic" base into loyal submission. That's been a hallmark of his administration. What I'm worried about is how, with all the Fahrenheit 9/11s, all the government leaks, the Paul o' Neils, Richard Holbrookes, Abu-Ghraib's, Al-Qaqaas, the dismal presidential debates (for Bush), the depressed economy...

Palestinian state off the agenda, says senior Sharon aide

Mainstream Media: The non-rational citizen
Every day the media saturates us within inferences that we are all 'rational' people, and that the way the world works, and corporations and governments as well, is by simple cause-and-effect determinism. To suggest otherwise, to question the rational pretence of our culture, is to scare the ever-living bejesus out of those faithful to the established ways of the west.

“Suspicion” of CSIS and RCMP evidence
In an opening submission to the Maher Arar inquiry, the Law Union of Ontario has asked that all material offered by CSIS and the RCMP be viewed with a healthy dose of suspicion Maher Arar was deported to and tortured in Syria last year. The present inquiry is examining the roll Canadian officials played in these events.

Canada abstains, first shot at UN reform
Canada did not accede to pressures from the predictable voting blocs and the EU, who voted in favour of the resolution, or pressures exerted by the US and Israel, who voted against it. Given the publicity and the implications of the vote, Canada's stand was even more remarkable.

Elections made fun and easy
Then like a bolt of Tampa Bay Lighting I thought mmmm what if they changed the format to less of debate and more of a competition like some the popular reality TV shows, like Big Brother, Fear Factor or Survivor. Then the other 62% of Canadians might just tune in. Even better if they made it so you could only vote online, and maybe make your choice for other important issues such as nicest, sexiest or most like likely never to form a National government, the peoples interest in Canadas future would then return.
