SHOTS FLYERED: "People can make flyers on this and many other topics..."


SHOTS FLYERED: McGuinty says Ont. moving ahead with full-day kindergarten despite $25B deficit


FYI, this is the latest evolution of the Prussian model of education in the late 19th century. They took children away from families and communities so the state could teach them instead, which helped them build the best army in the world. It was soon copied by others.

This is why everybody should start working on applying their knowledge instead of just storing it, or randomly bringing it up in forgettable ways. People can make flyers on this and many other topics to have definitive responses that permanently beat the propaganda handy.

John Taylor Gatto - http://www.johntaylorgatto.com/ - and Charlotte Thomson Iserbyt - http://www.deliberatedumbingdown.com/ - are great sources on this, people can simply Google for more to hear them explain how our education system is designed to dumb us down.

People who question the establishment simply have to use the sense they consistently make anyway to engage in conversations and apply it on flyers. They can collect and organize the best arguments they have, get them down once and for all, relax and share them.

Design templates are available at - http://9-11.meetup.com/282/files/ - for people to work with in MS Word, PowerPoint and other formats. Hours of information can be distilled into 5 minute reads that makes enough sense for people to actually want to repeat the information.

Like anything that could really "make a difference", it may take some time for people to get really good at them. However, this can be done on one's own time while listening to music, talk radio, watching dvd's, (etc.), and people will feel a lot better accomplishing something.

On my end, I'm moving away from the admin and motivational stuff to focus more on music and the mayoral campaign. At this point I'm just recycling old ideas anyway, so I might as well get more creative with it. We know stuff will work if people work on it, so we're good... :-)




McGuinty says Ont. moving ahead with full-day kindergarten despite $25B deficit

TORONTO - Ontario will move ahead with full-day kindergarten for all four and five year olds despite an unprecedented deficit, Premier Dalton McGuinty said Tuesday.

The program will cost $1.5 billion a year once it's fully implemented by 2015, about $500 million more than originally thought. Investing in children is an essential step in making the province competitive on the global stage, McGuinty said.

"Parents everywhere are the same. All we want is for our children to grow up and be the very best that they might be, to achieve their greatest potential," he said.

"In a highly competitive, global knowledge-based economy it's absolutely essential that we invest in the younger generation to ensure that we build a powerful workforce that can compete and win against the best anywhere on this planet."

McGuinty and his finance minister are projecting a $24.7-billion deficit for this fiscal year. The decision to move ahead with the long-promised kindergarten program has drawn fire from the Opposition Tories who say the province can't afford it.

Under the plan, teachers and early educators will work together in the classroom.

But parents will have to pay for their child to stay extended hours, which will be led by early childhood educators.

About 35,000 children will be offered the program next September, about 16 per cent of eligible kids that are currently enrolled.

Provincial officials say the schools that will offer the program will be announced early in the new year.

The 2015 date for full implementation puts the province behind British Columbia, which plans to offer full-day kindergarten to all of its five-year-olds by 2011.

New Brunswick, Nova Scotia and Quebec offer all-day kindergarten for five-year-olds. Alberta, Manitoba, Saskatchewan and Quebec offer some programs for four-year-olds.

Ontario has part-day kindergarten for four-year-olds, but school is not mandatory until Grade 1.

Charles Pascal, the government's early learning adviser, had estimated that the fully implemented early learning program could cost about $1 billion.

His June report recommended sweeping changes that include expanding paid parental leave to 400 days, and combining daycare and kindergarten into a single full-day program from 7:30 a.m. to 6 p.m. to make life easier for parents and their children.

It also said that children who have attended full-day programs before Grade 1 fare better academically and have better social skills.


SHOTS FLYERED 2: High loonie putting pressure on manufacturing: Ottawa


FYI, they're starting to take away the economy again. First "they" said we're screwed if the banks don't get trillions in bailouts. Then the banks did. Then they said we might be okay. Now they're saying we're screwed again. Meanwhile, the banks are making record profits.

ONE THING WE HAVE TO BE REALLY CONCERNED ABOUT IS people thinking the "economy" is "natural" and that is operates independently of what people in power can do about it. We'll get a whole narrative to explain exactly why we have to go broke that people will parrot.

Since we know it's total B.S., we have to make sure we repeat it each time we talk about the over-supply of various"fiat" money systems causing all "hyper-inflationary stagflation" stuff, otherwise we might make it seem like it's "natural" too, when it most certainly is not.

Ron Paul is great, but he's probably allowed on the mainstream news because he talks about the "crash" being "inevitable", which I certainly don't agree with. He has much more to say, but as long as the media makes sure he says that we're probably screwed, they'll put him on.

Business baby-talk confuses people, even those who admit they get the same generic cautious statements full of half-truths from everybody, which they'll say are the right things to say in the "business" world. Anyway, people can still play "Monopoly", but they should know it.

Monetary reform is a long-standing issue with many Canadians across the country. So, just like in the U.S., now that the average Canadian can feel their money being being taken away, they might want to know a little more about how they can keep it. We know, so we're good... :-)




High loonie putting pressure on manufacturing: Ottawa

Tue Oct 27, 7:45 AM

OTTAWA (Reuters) - The high Canadian dollar and the speed with which it is fluctuating are putting pressure on the manufacturing sector, Finance Minister Jim Flaherty said on Monday.

The Canadian dollar -- helped in part by weakness in the U.S. dollar -- has climbed steadily for much of the past few months and at one point was up 17.5 percent this year.

"There's no question that the higher dollar puts some pressure on the manufacturers in particular. There's also no question that there is continuing downward pressure on the U.S. dollar," Flaherty told the Canadian Broadcasting Corp.

"Especially when we see that volatility in the dollar, that is very difficult for manufacturers to handle."

The Bank of Canada said last week that it expected the strength in the Canadian dollar to more than fully offset other favorable developments in the economy since July.

Flaherty said one way to cut the value of the currency was for the central bank to engage in quantitative easing -- effectively printing more money to buy debt.

"That would have limited effect. It's not a remedy that is a magic remedy that would have long term effects," he said.

Flaherty also said Ottawa would continue with a two-year C$46.5 billion ($43.5 billion) stimulus program it unveiled in January.

"This has to continue until we see a retrenched recovery. It is dangerous ... for anyone to start doing exit strategies now because we are not out of the woods yet," he said.

The Canadian dollar -- which had already retreated on the Bank of Canada's warnings -- dropped to its lowest level in almost three weeks on Monday as commodity prices fell and risk-averse investors moved back into the perceived safety of the U.S. dollar.

The currency ended at C$1.0670 to the U.S. dollar, or 93.72 U.S. cents, its lowest level since October 6.
