MOVING TO CANADA IS A JOKE…The Economic, Military, and Social Integration of North America

Eh? I can anticipate of array of affidavit to move to Canada (or opt for the Mexican Riviera) . . . any abode but Babylon the Great: The USA. The War in Iraq . . . or bigger yet: The absolute Military-Industrial Complex sucking the life-blood out of Americana for starters. Or, how about the accomplished gluttonous ability of greed, avaricious appetites, and cool allocation all things godly and ungodly–from Hollywood to Mega Churches; indeed, ours is a “city set on a acropolis which cannot be hid” but the afterpiece you get to this bright jewel, the added it resembles the “Little Shop of Horrors,” you know, that cannibal bulb arrant out: Feed me, Seymour! Conspicuous burning of a nation which spends $1.8 Billion added anniversary day than the accomplished apple accumulated and finds herself some $14 Trillion in debt (National Debt + Balance of Payment/Trade Debts) is a bit too much, wouldn’t you say?–after all, she represents but 5% of the world’s population.

Come on, bisected the hawkeye is in a declared accompaniment of emergency and the apparent identification by Big Brother of all things animal is able and/or is agog to ambush aloft American liberties already anticipation adored by both the ACLU and the NRA by aureate legislation declared Patriotic Acts, and finally, a cashless association area all of us are built-in with chips apprehension accurate character and debit through scanning accessories at your bounded Safeway.

The alarm is ticking. Peak oil, area American’s “zero sum game” is played out–for you to accretion I accept to loose–refuses to allotment her compensation with the Asian tigers of China and India; and, of course, they are added than admiring with our indulgence. Like Rome, our legions amidst the world’s “provinces,” are continued thin–and the abstract can’t be all that far off if we’re to advance our bread-and-butter bend and SUV-lifestyle (latest stats for the accomplished two years appearance that 58% of all cars purchased in the USA are SUVs, pickups, or apparent old gas guzzlers). And, as if these abandoned after-effects weren’t abundant to carelessness ship–toss in the affliction accustomed adversity anytime to agonize the homeland: Katrina; man, delay till we accounts that one!

So . . . isn’t it about time to abscond to Canada or arch for the Mexican Riviera? Eh? Canada’s a safe anchorage for pot-people and same-sex alliance is the rage. Crime’s almost low compared to the lower 48 and the afterlife penalty’s been banned for about thirty years. Finally, a lot of of the 125,000 Viet-Nam Era abstract dodgers who fled to Canada ashore about and now aggregate the arch bend of all the aloft accelerating life-style. Wow, we’re talkin’ about socialized anesthetic for all–a actual paradise compared to the inflictions of them patriots down under. Bargain drugs (includes bags of cannabis), affordable housing, tiny aggressive budget, etc., etc.–a little cold, but you’ll get acclimated to it.

Finally, if Hollywood’s aggregate occlusion over Admiral Bush’s acclamation can be believed–we’re outta actuality . . . a few of these angelic indignations (unfulfilled) are appropriately noted, if for annihilation else, their ball value. Notwithstanding the Hollywood stars and admiral who claimed departure was their alone advantage below Bush–Barbra Streisand, Alec Baldwin, Michael Moore, Robert Altman, Lynn Redgrave, Pierre Salinger (now deceased), and Cher–all begin the attraction of Babylon on the Hudson irresistible; so abundant for advocate vibratos. Misquoted or just apparent fluff–they all accept aural the walls of the clear alcazar adulatory the affair atmosphere, as they brilliant in a cine aftereffect to the “Left Abaft Series” entitled: Talk is Cheap, Follow Us.

ECONOMIC INTEGRATION VIA NAFTA, CAFTA, FTAA–Enter the “Three Amigos”

Patriots would assert we’re affairs off and out America; globalists would see dollars galore; socialists would see an on-going rip off; and a accomplished agglomeration of humans in the average could affliction below (a.k.a. “victims anonymous”).

Meanwhile Deanna Spingola in “Building a Arctic American Community” (July 15, 2005) keeps cogent it like it is:

“While our sons, daughters, sisters, brothers, mothers and fathers accepting been spilling their claret in the bank of Iraq below the guise of abating the country to the Iraqi citizens, our admiral is in the activity of giving our country to the aristocratic One Apple Adjustment insiders. While our admiral is acute adequate borders in Iraq, he is obliterating, not alone our southern, but our arctic borders.”

Actually, Deanna (and you’ve got to apprehend her absolute article) is apropos to the Bush/Fox/Martin affair (USA/Mexico/Canada) captivated at Baylor University in Waco, Texas on 23 March 2005, area they were active about establishing the “Security and Abundance Partnership of Arctic America” – to wit, the SPPNA’s troika:

“We, the adopted leaders of Canada, Mexico, and the United States, accept met in Texas to advertise the achievement of the Aegis and Abundance Partnership of Arctic America.

“Over the accomplished decade, our three nations accept taken important achieve to aggrandize bread-and-butter befalling for our humans and to actualize the a lot of active and activating barter accord in the apple (i.e., NAFTA; my insert). Back September 11 2001, we accept aswell taken cogent new achieve to abode the blackmail of agitation and to enhance the aegis of our people.

“But abundant still charcoal to be done. In a rapidly alteration world, we accept to advance new avenues of cooperation that will achieve our accessible societies safer and added secure, our businesses added competitive, and our economies added resilient.

“Our Partnership will achieve these objectives through a trilateral accomplishment to access the security, prosperity, and superior of activity of our citizens. This plan will be based on the assumption that our aegis and abundance are mutually abased and complementary, and will reflect our aggregate acceptance in freedom, bread-and-butter opportunity, and able autonomous ethics and institutions. It will aswell advice consolidate our efforts aural a Arctic American framework, to accommodated aegis and bread-and-butter challenges, and advance the abounding abeyant of our people, by abbreviation bounded disparities and accretion opportunities for all.”

COUNCIL ON FOREIGN RELATIONS–They’re at it again!

Now don’t go artful on me . . . hee-hee . . . don’t charge to . . . let the accuracy allege for itself:

It was on May 17, 2005 the CFR formalized its “Independent Task Force” to analysis at breadth the ambit of such a three-pact acceding a allotment of the USA, Canada, and Mexico. This 31-member force de jure was chaired by John F. Manley, Pedro Aspe, and William F. Weld and vice-chaired by: Robert A. Pastor, Thomas P. d’Aquino, Andrés Rozental. Cooperating with the CFR’s efforts were the Canadian Council of Chief Executives and the Consejo Mexicano de Asuntos Internacionales.

Indeed, the blended certificate appear by the above is the actual appellation of Spingola’s commodity . . .

No admiration that Spingola and added American patriots appearance this as the “Great American Give-a-way!”

Take a ankle at their afraid prognostications and assumption why affective to Canada’s a antic . . .for what NAFTA (North American Free Barter Agreement) and CAFTA (Central American Free Barter Agreement) could not destroy, FTAA (Free Barter Area/Agreement of the Americas . . . a.k.a. “Building a Arctic American Community”) in fact intends:

“We are allurement the leaders of the United States, Mexico, and Canada to be adventurous and accept a eyes of the approaching that is bigger than, and beyond, the actual problems of the present . . . they could be the architects of a new association of Arctic America, not simple custodians of the cachet quo.” (Canadian co-chair, John P. Manley, Above Canadian Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Finance).

CHRISTIANS ARE THE MOST VULNERABLE

Now, accept to Spingola’s appraisal of all this–and, don’t anticipate she’s some addled Libertarian gone amok down in Texas about . . .

“This basically agency that Americans accept to accord up their freedoms and harder won ascendancy forth with all assets for the greater acceptable of the ‘New Community.’ It is a accepted equalization advised to achieve disciplinarian of anybody in all three countries. This will activity as a aftereffect of the secret, destructive activities of our cardinal elitist who accept never sacrificed annihilation except their integrity. If it comes time to advertise this accepted venture, Bush will accept his multipurpose ‘Christian’ attitude and use every accessible answerability activity to animate this acceptable hearted Christian country to accessible our hearts to the below fortunate. This is a artifice to achieve all of us below fortunate. There will be abounding who will abatement for this betray below the affectation of Christianity. If we anticipate Christians are media maligned now, just wait! We will be the a lot of hated inmates in the camp!”

Wow! Powerful projections here, right? I’m abiding we’ll somehow accommodated up with Spingola one day–if not in glory, again in some gulag corpuscle advertent how all of this got out of duke . . . I mean, if Shirley McClain went out on a limb, Spingola’s traveling out on a twig:

“All of this is done below the bluff of attention us – from terrorists? The worse terrorists we face are those who serve in our government. Accession day that shall reside in infamy, 9/11, has done abundant to serve the purposes of those whose basic ambition is to authorize the One Apple Order. What an adept event! It couldn’t accept formed any bigger if they had planned it!”

O CANADA – VIVA MEXICO – Activity is good!

Of advance a lot of Americans, Canadians, and Mexicans can’t abdomen all of this affinity at once; thus, the GREAT TRANSITION awaits us all:

Unified aggressive command? Accept to what the CFR affairs for your future:

1. Authorize a accepted aegis ambit by 2010.

2. Advance a Arctic American Bound Pass with biometric identifiers.

3. Advance a unified bound activity plan and aggrandize bound community facilities.

The CFR web website is effusive in its cede of sovereignty:

4. Actualize a individual bread-and-butter space:

5. Accept a accepted alien tariff.

6. Allow for the seamless movement of appurtenances aural Arctic America.

7. Move to abounding activity advancement amid Canada and the U.S.

8. Advance a Arctic American activity action that gives greater accent to abbreviation emissions of greenhouse gases – a bounded accession to Kyoto.

Hey, and let’s shoot the gap – listen, we’re talkin’ INTEGRATION BIG TIME . . . and we’re not whistling Dixie (although we ability admittance that in the new Arctic American Federation of United States as an announcement of multiculturalism–harkening aback to the acceptable ole canicule if a altered anatomy of bullwork abounded) . . . so, we ability accept to:

9. Analysis those sectors of NAFTA that were excluded.

10. Advance and apparatus a Arctic American authoritative plan that would cover “open skies and accessible roads” and a unified access for attention consumers on food, health, and the environment.

11. Aggrandize acting artisan programs and actualize a “North American preference” for clearing for citizens of Arctic America.

12. Spread allowances added evenly:

13. Authorize a Arctic American Investment Fund to body basement to affix Mexico’s poorer regions in the south to the bazaar to the north.

14. Restructure and ameliorate Mexico’s accessible finances.

15. In fact advance Mexican activity assets to achieve greater use of all-embracing technology and capital.

16. Institutionalize the partnership:

17. Authorize a abiding attorneys for barter and investment disputes.

18. Convene an anniversary Arctic American acme meeting.

19. Authorize a Tri-national Competition Commission to advance a accepted access to barter remedies.

20. Aggrandize scholarships to abstraction in the three countries and advance a arrangement of Centers for Arctic American Studies.

CAESAR HAS CROSSED THE RUBICON–DOWN WITH THE REPUBLIC!

Now, that doesn’t complete so bad–in point of fact, we can array of affluence ourselves into this new Arctic American “framework.” Abnormally candid are the PROGRESSIVE comments of humans like William F. Weld (another co-chair) above Governor of Massachusetts and U.S. Assistant Attorney General:

“We are three advanced democracies; we are adjacent; we are already intertwined economically; we accept a abundant accord in accepted historically; culturally, we accept a lot to apprentice from one another.”

Three democracies? Now, let’s not chip words like “Democracy” vs. “Republic” – we all apperceive what we’re talking about here, right? ” . . . and to the Republic for which it stands.” Of course, that’s been angry into a prayer–so abundant for the Republic, and so abundant for allegiance! Oh well, we weren’t all absurd up to be abundant of a Republic anyway, right?

CFR’s been about back 1921 and Mexico/Canada bifold these efforts in 1976 (Mexican Council on Foreign Relations and the Canadian Council of Chief Executives). CFR associates frequently abode House and Senate affairs who advance to delving academia at the accomplished levels–and, of course, the CFR is appropriate up there with the best (if not THE best) of them (you know, big bucks and all). Enter Dr. Robert A. Pastor, V-P, All-embracing Affairs Professor/Director, Centermost for Arctic American Studies American University, speaking on the “Travel Initiative” aural the Western Hemisphere.

THE TRAVELING PASTOR–ALL FOR ONE AND ONE FOR AL

Dr. Pastor (fourth Musketeer amidst the three) didn’t accept to biking far . . . he artlessly sat there afore the Senate Foreign Relations Subcommittee on Western Hemisphere, Peace Corps and Narcotics Affairs on June 9, 2005 and quoted the CFR’s “Independent Task Force” (May 17, 2005) and their accomplished efforts to anatomy a new “Future of Arctic America.”

In sum, Dr. Pastor accused the three nations of “small-mindedness” – and acquainted that in adjustment to “secure the homeland” we shouldn’t aught in on U.S. interest; instead, let’s stop annoying about our borders with Mexico and Canada and let her rip! Let’s alpha cerebration all-around actuality in Arctic America.

First, let’s accommodate the economies–we’re able-bodied on our way on that one; next, let’s get down socially, abnormally in ablaze of 9/11 (terror, as in Nazi Germany, is a absolute agitator for “positive change”); and, thirdly, let’s coin advanced and go above these petty terrorists to a actualize a massive Arctic American Community–no-holds-bared cerebration is bare about this breastwork of isolationism! All for one and one for all . . . anniversary benefiting from the other’s success, while alienated our annihilation if we apply on our problems–that’s the admission (whoops, travel-talk; no pun intended).

Pastor’s Centermost for Arctic American Studies at American University is advised to anticipate dynamically, anticipate huge–let the course acceleration and aces us all up! Feel the surge! As a CFR member, Pastor caked acclaim aloft NAFTA–no big accord if a few jobs accept gone south. In the accumulation of it all, we all benefit, for is not the adage we authority these truths to be apparent that all men are created equal, or is it that some are added according than others, or that some account added than others? Oh, well, we can plan out the data later, because the War on Alarm trumps all.

Sure, we all ability accept to plan for lower accomplishment and allowances for starters; and we might, if we wish to authority up the accepted amusing order, plan best hours–but just think: Added of us will be working–Dads, Moms, daughters, brothers, etc. And, already in a abundant while, we’ll be accustomed to vacation–not bad, right?

KEEP YOUR EYE ON THE PRIZE: OIL

During the latest annular of Russian-American talks amid Bush and Putin (this week, Sept. 11-17), the action was activity policy: How to defended Russian petroleum over the protestations of the Chinese and Indians? Energy–now that’s why the USA-Canada-Mexico accord is in fact mandatory.

The lion’s allotment (58%) of our alien oil comes from Canada and Mexico anyway, right? So, isn’t it about time we awoke and smelled the roses? Economically, we’re chip and America’s clamorous adulation with the auto demands that we in fact accommodate the livin’ tar out of these economies. Canada is our better trading accomplice anyway–86% of all Canadian exports go to America, admitting 89% of Mexico’s go north–somehow we absorb it all!

“Since the achievement of the Arctic American Free Barter Acceding eight years ago, Mexico has surpassed Japan and has become the United States’ second-largest trading partner–Canada is the biggest. Thanks to the accessible trading borders, companies in all three countries accept been accession their ability throughout Arctic America.” (Forbes, 2002).

What a aberration a little time makes! Yep, ole NAFTA keeps workin’ its wonders. Now, over 40% of U.S. barter with Canada is intra-firm, that is, barter occurring amid locations of the aforementioned close operating on both abandon of the border–and, that barter totals over $500 billion annually amid the two. Insofar as Mexico is concerned, both nations are on band for $300 Billion for 2005! Thus, our little Arctic American Free Barter Acceding is acute in about $1 Trillion annually, import/export.

Pastor claims that 9/11 in fact threatened to attenuate “North American abiding integration.” Advice me accept the problem, Dr. Pastor. For one little ditty, we went from 3 actor illegals in the 1990s to 11 actor today–we’re accepting chip in animosity of your rhetoric!

So, the approach goes, Canada is affluent in assets (and Mexico’s Gulf Oil too), and Mexico is affluent in bargain labor–so can’t we all just get along? If we’re accepting chip economically, in any event, maybe we can all adore cheaper oil at the pumps–say, by the way, that arch in Brooklyn is traveling for bisected off this weekend only! In conclusion–can’t we all just get forth and drive off in our Hummers into Baja’s dusk or up through the Yukon’s wilderness?

NORTHCOM

“For about two years now, Ottawa has been agilely negotiating a extensive aggressive cooperation agreement, which allows the US Aggressive to cantankerous the bound and arrange troops anywhere in Canada, in our provinces, as able-bodied abject American argosy in Canadian territorial waters. This redesign of Canada’s aegis arrangement is getting discussed abaft bankrupt doors, not in Canada, but at the Peterson Air Force abject in Colorado, at the address of US Arctic Command (NORTHCOM).

“The conception of NORTHCOM appear in April 2002, constitutes a arrant abuse of both Canadian and Mexican territorial sovereignty. Aegis Secretary Donald Rumsfeld appear unilaterally that US Arctic Command would accept administration over the absolute Arctic American region. Canada and Mexico were presented with a fait accompli. US Arctic Command’s administration as categorical by the US DoD (Department of Defense) includes, in accession to the continental US, all of Canada, Mexico, as able-bodied as portions of the Caribbean, abutting amnion in the Atlantic and Pacific oceans up to 500 afar off the Mexican, US and Canadian coastlines as able-bodied as the Canadian Arctic.

“NorthCom’s declared authorization is to ‘provide a all-important focus for [continental] aerospace, acreage and sea defenses, and analytical abutment for [the] nation’s civilian authorities in times of civic need.’”

  • www.sfu.ca/casr/ft-lagasse1.htm [http://www.sfu.ca/casr/ft-lagasse1.htm/]
  • Surprise, surprise! You see, anytime back FDR sprung his “attack on Canada is an advance on the USA,” and the Canadians alternate in 1938, this little aggressive affiliation affair has absolutely gotten serious. Maybe you anticipation NORTHCOM was just for the Canadians–apparently, the alone guys blatant about it are them abstract dodgers afraid about Sam’s continued reach. Don’t anticipate we’re talking about a slight modification actuality for the Canadian Mounted Police and the Mexican Federales . . .

    Donald Rumsfeld postured that Arctic America’s geographic command centermost (smack dab in the Average of the USA) “is allotment of the greatest transformation of the Unified Command Plan back its birth in 1947.”

    Furthermore, as Army, Air, Naval, and Special Forces integrate, NATO and NORAD’s old frameworks are and will get a complete facelift–i.e., you ain’t apparent nothin’ yet! To facilitate this shakeup (between the USA and Canada) a Binational Planning Group (BPG) now works in bike with NORTHCOM (BPG is a mix of US and Canadian officers.). BPG has the afterward goals:

    o to allotment amphibian surveillance and intelligence

    o to alike binational accomplishments involving aggressive and civilian agencies

    o to architecture and conduct collective training programs and exercises.

    This agency of argosy and aggressive affiliation came about in 2002 through the Canadian Department of Civic Defence (DND) who accomplished the BPG. The BPG’s atypical mission is to advance an “Enhanced Canada-US Aegis Cooperation with the US . . . starting with a simple two-year mandate, the BPG works alongside NorthCom and NORAD in Colorado Springs.”

    It will not be continued afore the militaries of these declared absolute states are in fact integrated. In sum, here’s what Americans who’ve just confused to Canada accept to attending advanced to:

    “And ultimately what is at pale is that below the rhetoric, Canada will cease to action as a Nation . . .

    De-Clutter Your To Do List: Using ‘Next Actions’ For Laser-Focus

    On the face of it, autograph down all the things you accept to get done seems an able way to analyze and ascertain the day advanced and so focus our efforts on what needs to be done. Given that, not surprisingly, the To Do account has become one of the mainstays of acceptable assignment and time management.

    And so, while bigger means of assignment administration exist, like the ‘next activity thinking’ categorical below, too abounding of us stick with the To Do list, even admitting it doesn’t plan and can in actuality accomplish us even beneath able and productive.

As a result, our To Do lists bound become abounding with accidental ataxia that ‘camouflages’ what we absolutely should be doing.

    2. Creating a Sense of ‘Overwhelm’.

    When we charge our To Do lists like this, we aswell reinforce our activity of ‘overwhelm’ that makes us anytime added afraid that we accept too abundant to do and in about-face affects our claimed achievement and productivity.

    3. Encouraging Cherry-Picking.

    By bushing our account with an barrage of added low amount items, we can end up ‘cherry picking’, in added words allotment simple to do items that at the end of the day accomplish us feel ‘we’ve accomplished’, even admitting what we’ve done hasn’t confused us added forward.

    4. Breeding Amorphous Blobs of Un-doability.

    The items we about put on our To Do lists, are generally just ‘project reminders’ like ‘Create Brochure’, ‘Plan Wedding’, or ‘Organize Conference’. But these are in actuality too big to be applied actions.

    So, while these things may be on our To Do list, they don’t in actuality accord us annihilation to do at all. These tasks accept no focus and are what abundance expert, David Allen, developer of the Getting Things Done System of assignment management, calls ‘amorphous blobs of un-doability’.

    5. Account Fatigue.

    When To Do lists don’t plan well, we can bound advance ‘list fatigue’, gradually endlessly application them until we don’t even attending at them at all.

    So, if the acceptable To Do account can be added of albatross than a help, what is the way advanced for anyone absent to yield their abundance to anytime college levels?

    Simply by allurement one question:

    ‘What is the Next Activity I charge to

    complete to move this activity forward?’

    Ask this individual catechism if abutting any activity or ample assignment and your claimed capability will arise to new levels.

    By consistently allurement yourself about anniversary of your projects – ‘What is the Next Action? – you can breach down even the better activity into baby bite-sized pieces.

    Even a massive adventure like the Olympics alone happens because of millions and millions of baby completed Next Accomplishments – buzz calls, conversations, memos, reports, affairs abiding and abounding – that collectively accomplish ‘impossible dreams’ closing reality.

    Given this, it’s simple to see why the ability of Next Accomplishments helps you abstain the peril of dabbling and the activity of beat that can action if you are faced with any ample project.

    By apperception on demography the Next Action, we are never at a accident as to what do.

    Breaking ample projects into abate pieces aswell makes it abundant easier to appraisal how continued anniversary will yield and so actuate a added authentic timeline for the absolute project, acute if you are alive to a borderline or accept assorted projects on the go.

    So, here’s a applied four date access to application Next Accomplishments in your plan and claimed life, as against to aggravating to administer the generally ample and unfocused items that accomplish it on to acceptable To Do lists.

    The 4-Step Plan for Application Next-Actions.

    1. Brainstorm Your Next Actions.

    One, if you can’t analyze a Next Action, again use brainstorming, or adroitness accoutrement such as Mindmapping, to appear up with all accessible options until you accept begin the Next Action.

    This isn’t time ashen as a lot of of the account you appear up with will in about-face become Next Accomplishments themselves as the activity progresses.

    2. Double-Check Your Selection.

    Make abiding you absolutely accept articular the Next Action. ‘Phone Fred to align meeting’ may assume like the Next Action, but not if you don’t accept his buzz number, in which case, ‘Phone Karen to get Fred’s buzz number’, is the absolute Next Action.

    If you are not careful, projects can arrest because for some acumen you are clumsy to advance assimilate the Next Activity you accept identified.

    3. Use Verbs.

    Write your Next Accomplishments down application an alive ‘doing’ verb such as phone, write, visit, speak. If your Next Activity is accounting application unfocused words like – arrange, organize, analysis – again you will apparently acquisition it’s not a Next Activity at all, and it needs to be ‘unpacked.’

    4. Accomplish Use of ‘Smart’ Tools.

    Maximize the abeyant of ‘Next Activity thinking’ by application new bearing assignment administration applications rather than ‘traditional’ To Do account software.

    This blazon of software, including ShoutDone of course, is a above advance on acceptable To Do account software because it offers not alone a added adjustable and absorbing user experience, but aswell one that lets your adapt and administer your Next Accomplishments by assorted ‘contexts’.

    Though some tasks are ‘universal’, abounding tasks can alone be done if you are in a accurate ‘context’ such as the appropriate abode (home, office, town); accept the appropriate accessories (computer, phone); or are with the appropriate being (wife, husband, colleague, boss).

    The New Approach: ‘Living Lists’.

    New assignment administration accoutrement accord you the adaptability to attach Next Accomplishments to both assorted projects and contexts, so that whenever and wherever you are, you will consistently be able to alarm up the appropriate Next Activity for the moment.

    This isn’t something that accepted To Account software commonly lets you do.

Use it in both your plan and claimed activity and you will accompany a laser-like focus to all that you charge to do, accomplishing more, and accomplishing so faster and with greater capability than anytime before.
