    It's all just post-processing.

    I've heard that doing acid can strip off the filters of the brain, and expose one to raw sensory input, unveiling the subjective nature of our senses.

    Seriously, I hear you. I've seen my own trade cut back in recent years, while bureaucratic layers of dubious value proliferate.

    It's a strange world.

    Looking at recent history, we can see that the TFW program has grown since it's inception.

    At what point do we determine if this is going to continue to creep in scope, or stay where it is?

    Does the transition need to be so dramatic?

    Can the foreign workers not be phased in as loss replacement?

    True.... Brand name Chariots are overkill for the rich.

  8. Re: Re: Re: Re: Re: Oilsands employees being replaced by foreign workers

    It's funny - I didn't see the same clamor over Harper's multimilliondollar Israeli trip, which also included 21 Rabbis.

    Somehow, this exercise in favor-buying was deemed as "Necessary politics".

    I'm not sure how we can stop the TFW program, or have it better delineated, but perhaps it's time we all start thinking about it.

    Temporary foreign worker program.

    It started out with menial, seasonal work, and is quickly increasing in scope.

    RIP Pete Seeger.

    For those who don't remember him, he was a pillar of the antiwar folk scene in the 60's and 70s.

    He was a living middle finger to the military/industrial/corporate complex.
