OK, here's a long-shot for ya. Lucky Thirteenth!

[Up, Down]

People's Climate March: September 21 2014 NYC.
The People's Climate March website is replete with good information.

350 Toronto are coordinating bus transportation from Toronto and lodging in NYC. Please give them your support in this important work.

A-and up-front praise for Forest Action Network in Victoria who are asking the RIGHT QUESTION:

What Will It Take To Stop The Pipelines?
Have a look at their August Newsletter for an Action Plan that makes sense (to me at least).

Laerte: Ladies and gentlemen, lose your self possession.
Gentlemen and Ladies!                                                                                 Get over yourselves!

All'a these 'soi distant' smart-guy gurus all'a time sayin' "THINK OUTSIDE THE BOX!"

OK then, try this on: How about casting Rob Ford as Toronto's St. George?!
Karen Stintz, John Tory, Olivia Chow, David Soknacki, Rob Ford, debate March 26 2014.

Theo Moudakis: Barack Obama & Stephen Harper at the Climate Change Summit.Tom Toles: The meat cooked faster than I expected.

tOad: Later may be too late.
I'll look at it later.                                 I'll look at it later.                                 Too late.

Tom Toles: Time's up.

Gilmar: Seca / Drought.

Gilmar's diagram shows what increasing justice & equality look like when things begin to get really tough.

I said long-shot. Right?

WTF, Rob Ford is within squeaking distance of re-election so maybe he could be convinced to listen. It's not as if the mealy-mouthed left-libs & right-libs really mean anything they say so even if he just said something positive about any aspect of the looming apocalypse (say, pipelines within municipal boundaries) it would at least show the strength of the citizens lobby.

Dunno. I'm just sayin' ... and anyway, I've always had a soft spot for Dennis the Menace (which is what that picture of him up top reminds me of). And if you have watched any of the debates ... please tell me that any of the other contenders really have anything to say.

Maybe he won't want to piss off his Granite Club buddies (if he still has any) or the members of whatever club Stan Bharti belongs to. But then ... maybe some of them are beginning to figgure things out. Who knows?

How would one go about presenting such an idea to someone like Rob Ford I wonder?

Not that this would amount to any substantive action. A PR exercise. A bit of real politik theatre. Nothing more.

A bit of fun though eh? A feel-good moment.

Newton Silva: After the election.
After elections I wish the voters would just go and fuck themselves!
Your excellency, it's rude to speak with your mouth full.
