Gorilla Radio Year Ender with Chris Cook and Janine Bandcroft Dec. 27, 2010

We leave the usual show format for today’s special look back at the year that has been in this country, and take a peak at a few things we might expect for the coming year. There will be music and blatherskyting, and Victoria Street Newz publisher and CFUV broadcaster, Janine Bandcroft will drop by too.

You needn’t be a soothsayer to see; Canada as we know it today has changed mightily since joining America and its “International Community” declaration of war against all the Peoples living either above, or along the transport routes of, coveted mineral wealth. It is a necessarily perpetual war, or at least, one that will last until either that mineral wealth is depleted, or the expense of taking and defending it militarily breaks the economic back of the new Imperium.

Hope that any kind of American moral renaissance might change its martial course abroad, or amend its ruthless economic policies at home under Barack Obama’s administration, has withered in the bare light of the Democrats’ complete corruption, and revelations of their leader’s intransigent pragmatism.
