NORAD-Russian Joint Air Drill, Bomber Incursions and Canada’s F-35 Jet Purchase
Canada could be asked to play a bigger role in the war on terrorism, including participation in future American and NATO military operations. Many would like to see a return to its more traditional role as a peacekeeping nation, one which has garnered praise from the rest of the world. Whether or not the majority of Canadians support the government's decision to purchase the new F-35 jets, it does represent a continued commitment to NATO and NORAD. It is also closely tied to deeper U.S.-Canada military integration and a North American security perimeter.

Putting kids through college
A report by TD Economics showed that in 2009, the cost of a four-year undergraduate degree was more than $80,000 for students living away from home. Even for parents who have diligently saved for their children's education, it can be very tough to save enough for more than one child. Lawrence Engel, vice-president, personal lending, TD Canada Trust has these tips for parents:

Atmospheric Dialectics: A Critical Theory of Climate Change
It would unfortunately not be entirely absurd to claim climate change to be the greatest social problem of the twenty-first century. Short of the historical development and proliferation of nuclear weapons, nothing else seems to pose such a dire threat to human welfare as do the projected consequences of climate change; a recent report released by The Lancet, [3] for example, claims it to constitute the greatest threat to human health in this century. The dialectics of dangerous anthropogenic interference with the global climate and the greenhouse effect—which itself dialectically has allowed for the emergence and evolution of life on Earth for nearly four billion years—represents a problematic that, in Dussel's view[4], joins the mass persistence of global material poverty in constituting the final limit to the age of modernity, the capitalist mode of production, and political liberalism.

Scholarships For College Tuition, Fees And Textbooks–What Free Financial Aid Is Available
College scholarships are available from a variety of sources and can be obtained by a large number of college students who need help paying college tuition, fees, and even for those who need assistance meeting costs for things like textbooks. Free financial aid from scholarships can be greatly beneficial as the costs for attending a college or university are on the rise and, luckily, almost any student can receive some form of financial aid through college scholarships.

Obama’s Delusions: The Economy and Iraq
If you've listened to recent speeches the President has given about the economy and the Iraq war, you'd think that two of the biggest social issues facing working Americans are improving. But facts are stubborn things.

Take for example the numbers of jobs lost in the last two months: 221,000 in June, 131,000 in July.

Instead of taking the drastic measures needed to stop the continued hemorrhaging, the President had this to say on August 5th:

Free College Grants and Tuition Opportunities
The federal government is putting more money into the hands of college students than ever before and much of the impetus behind it is the No Child Left Behind Act. The measures help to assure that more primary and secondary schools are held accountable for making sure kids get the attention and education they deserve without prejudices. Which means a much higher percentage of high school students are earning diplomas. More students stand a chance of attending college when the right financial and social resources are available to them along with educators with the know-how and experience to guide them to the right academic and career choices.

My take on the vagueness and threats of Clackamas County Sherriffs and Oregon State Police re: action against bicyclists and "similar" activities who gravity ride or 'HoodBomb' Timberline Road. What a 'state'(or representative of)the state does, has more effect on our lives than many are willing to realize or accept. I have a past to clue me in on that...and it convinces me that even when they want you to believe 'it does not matter'(as they take it away)it DOES matter. Be careful about what you acquiesce to.

In 1895, new New York City police commissioner Teddy Roosevelt, attacked both rogue cops and urban slumlords as soon as he got on the job, before seeking higher office or heading the Bull Moose ticket in 1912. In the TR bio, Theodore Roosevelt: A Strenuous Life, TR's urban reform actions contrast starkly with local NW police accountability and anti-slumlord (in)action by local government.

College loans for students with bad credit and no cosigner
One of the ways you may be able to receive some help to get college loans for students with bad credit is if the student themselves have excelled in academics and have maintained a high grade point average (GPA). This sometimes gives the college or university the leverage they need to offer a scholarship, additional grants, work study or ijn some cases, can even establish the fact to the lender, that although this is a college loan for a student with bad credit and no cosigner, the probability the student would attend college and receive their degree is very high.

"Secretary Gates could have used his time, as other nations have done, to announce a broad inquiry into these killings," the statement said. "He could have announced specific criminal investigations into the deaths we have exposed. He could have announced a panel to hear the heartfelt dissent of U.S. soldiers, who know this war from the ground. He could have apologized to the Afghani people.
"But he did none of these things. He decided to treat these issues and the countries affected by them with contempt. Instead of explaining how he would address these issues, he decided to announce how he would suppress them.
"This behavior is unacceptable. We will not be suppressed. We will continue to expose abuses by this administration and others."

Corporate America Edu-Scam
New book highlights what education activists have been saying for a long time: higher education has become yet another corporate America scam for siphoning money from the tax payer. How many students with six figure loans will ever be able to repay their student loans in today's economy? The corporate bureaucrats know this and see the student loan as a way of siphoning yet more billions out of the public till. Ever wonder why a four year college degree now costs in many cases as much as a house? The institutions of higher learning (oxymoron) have learned that they can rely on duped students to take out exorbitant student loans to pay their exorbitant tuition fees. Finally someone has researched and written a good book exposing this heinous corporate America scam.

President Obama said, in his 2009 speech in Accra, Ghana, that America should support strong institutions and not strong men. However, in the case of Rwanda, this has been no more than rhetoric. Rwandans, like most Africans, cheered Obama's election, hoping that it might signal a new, more peaceful and cooperative relationship between the U.S. and Africa, but Obama has expanded AFRICOM, the U.S. Africa Command, and now he remains silent as Rwanda's strongman, President Paul Kagame, prepares a sham presidential election to retain his brutal grip on power.

It's best to quickly recognize the red flags in any failing relationship. This way, ties can be severed instead of allowing things to linger forever in dysfunction. For Democrats and teachers' unions, the writing is on the wall. The two are simply going in opposite directions.

The Democrats continue on the road to corporate-inspired charter schools, using the tried and true method of "stronger teacher evaluations" to undermine "underperforming" schools and teachers — thus opening the door wide to private charter schools with their non-union workforce.
