The Economics of Denial

17 hours 12 min ago
So it seems we ARE in a recession. However, according to our Conservative Friends, it’s only a “technical” recession. Now, not to delve too deeply (the topic requires many years of study), but in layperson’s terms, there’s a big... Balbulican http://stageleft.info

Harperman, it's time for you to go

Tony Turner, who studies bird migrations in his day job, has been a fixture of the Ottawa folk community for years, writing and composing as a member of the songwriting collective Writer’s Bloc since 1994. But recently, he’s vaulted... Dr.Dawg http://drdawgsblawg.ca/

[I first published this piece on May 15, 2006. Given Scott Walker’s latest droolings, it seems remarkably prescient, if I do say so myself. Can we offer the man a hand? —DD] * President George W. Bush has secured his... Dr.Dawg http://drdawgsblawg.ca/

Here’s the Canadaland expose of this unprofessional, clownish farce. In brief, a noted Canadian author, Margaret Atwood, submitted a piece to the NP, a satirical piece about the role of hair in the current election campaign. A couple of minor... Dr.Dawg http://drdawgsblawg.ca/

Matrix politics

Blue, red and orange blend and fade to a dull grey. Welcome to electoral “politics” in an advanced “democracy.” Let us assume that Stephen Harper sets the current political benchmark, against which any proposed alternatives might be measured. He’s for... Dr.Dawg http://drdawgsblawg.ca/

…same old story? Will NDP National Director Anne McGrath, who has been pulling NDP candidacies like a mad dentist recently, leap into action once again? After all, support for Margaret Thatcher’s economics isn’t official NDP policy—for now, at least.... Dr.Dawg http://drdawgsblawg.ca/
