I heard about this on Democracy Now this morning. The article is a couple weeks old but Bush is planning on visiting Canada today so there might be further developments.

Is it possible for a U.S. citizen to apply for citizenship in Canada? Does anyone know how that works?

It's definately possible, though Google would know better than I. The easiest way is to marry a Canadian.

Bush says Canada, U.S. 'standing together'
Paul Hunter reports for CBC-TV: (Runs 3:15)
Neil Macdonald reports for CBC-TV about how the visit is being played south of the border (Runs 1:54)

"Socially the canadians beleive they are somhow superior to us, and it's really very odd because they are not. The united states it he most benevolent great country in the history of the world."

"Those [Canadian] protests arise out of self-hatred... from people frusterated with the derivitive nature of Canadian culture"

"Canada needs the United States, United States does not need Canada- but you need us so to alienate our administration is probaly not a good idea."

i keep writing responses to this and deleting them. i'm trying to control impulsive reactions that come from a bad place.

I have been going through something similar since the election ended. I have endless fuel for negative attacks but I know in my heart that it's like fighting fire with gasoline.
Is that what you mean?

Pruned with permission from

Did you know....

    80% of all votes in America are counted by only two companies: Diebold and ES&S.

    There is no federal agency with regulatory authority or oversight of the U.S. voting machine industry.

    The vice-president of Diebold and the president of ES&S are brothers.

    The chairman and CEO of Diebold is a major Bush campaign organizer and donor who wrote in 2003 that he was "committed to helping Ohio deliver its electoral votes to the president next year."

    Republican Senator Chuck Hagel used to be chairman of ES&S. He became Senator based on votes counted by ES&S machines.

    Republican Senator Chuck Hagel, long-connected with the Bush family, was caught lying about his ownership of ES&S by the Senate Ethics Committee.

    Senator Chuck Hagel was on a short list of George W. Bush's vice-presidential candidates.

    ES&S is the largest voting machine manufacturer in the U.S. and counts almost 60% of all U.S. votes.

    Diebold's new touch screen voting machines have no paper trail of any votes. In other words, there is no way to verify that the data coming out of the machine is the same as what was legitimately put in by voters.

    Diebold also makes ATMs, checkout scanners, and ticket machines, all of which log each transaction and can generate a paper trail.

    Diebold is based in Ohio.

    Diebold employed 5 convicted felons as senior managers and developers to help write the central compiler computer code that counted 50% of the votes in 30 states.

    Jeff Dean, Diebold's Senior Vice-President and senior programmer on Diebold's central compiler code, was convicted of 23 counts of felony theft in the first degree.

    Diebold Senior Vice-President Jeff Dean was convicted of planting back doors in his software and using a "high degree of sophistication" to evade detection over a period of 2 years.

    None of the international election observers were allowed in the polls in Ohio.

    California banned the use of Diebold machines because the security was so bad.

    30% of all U.S. votes are carried out on unverifiable touch screen voting machines with no paper trail.

    All -- not some -- but all the voting machine errors detected and reported in Florida went in favor of Bush or Republican candidates.

    Florida's governor, Jeb is Bush's brother.

    Major voting anomalies in Florida -- again always favoring Bush -- have been mathematically demonstrated and questioned by experts.

The odds of some of these amazing voting anomalies were the equivalent of statistical miracles.

these are some horrendous claims, fog. i did a bunch of fact checking using sources more independent that those given. every thing i looked into seems to be true. i think the strength of an administration can be measured by what it can get away with. in that light, this must be the strongest admin ever.

So what I'm wondering is: Who is reporting this and bringing it to the attention of the public? I mean, what organization that's not considered "Kooky Left" is running with this information? It seems like a pretty good story, but maybe the press is afraid of reprisal? Did you hear that Gary Webb (the reporter who outed the CIA for complicity in drug trafficking) was found dead of an apparently self-inflicted gunshot wound?

The right aint playing fair. No doubt about it.

i will start confronting news sources to find out why this story is not getting coverage. anyone have any tips on how. i am just going to start at the bottom by making calls, and firing off emails.

does anyone want to be cc'd on my emails. maybe i will start a thread here and post them.

CC Me Grunt. I'd love to get some replies in my blog.
