Bono – The Dark Side of Philanthropy

I have long been questioning the money side of U2 and, in particular, Bono.  Where our perception is one of a giving man, a Christian man, a saviour for a continent, has something changed? What twigged this today for me was … Continue reading

The Daily Show Takes On Guns, Again

I am at a complete loss at people who are freaking about gun controls. How can so many Americans think there is a need for automatic weapons and huge magazines. Aside from the madness of the thinking that more guns … Continue reading

Capitalism Is Making You Fat

It’s just you and me here so be honest. Are you overweight? Seriously, I won’t tell. I am. I am considered obese. There are more of us every day who are. More adults. More children. And while this issue is … Continue reading

I take little in the way of pleasure from telling you this story. As a Canadian, I am quite disillusioned by the strength and support of the political right. Keep in mind in my almost 30 years of voting I … Continue reading

The World is a Vampire

Paranoia is in bloom,
The PR transmissions will resume,
They’ll try to push drugs that keep us all dumbed down,
And hope that we will never see the truth around
(So come on)
Another promise, another scene,
Another packaged lie to keep us trapped in greed,
And all the green belts wrapped around our minds,
And endless red tape to keep the truth confined
(So come on)

They will not force us,
They will stop degrading us,
They will not control us,
We will be victorious
(So come on)

Interchanging mind control,
Come let the revolution take it’s toll,
If you could flick a switch and open your third eye,
You’d see that
We should never be afraid to die
(So come on)

Rise up and take the power back,
It’s time the fat cats had a heart attack,
You know that their time’s coming to an end,
We have to unify and watch our flag ascend

They will not force us,
They will stop degrading us,
They will not control us,
We will be victorious
