The weather this morning is giving me some strange juju. I left the house at dawn to be met with freezing fog which makes little sense because ice doesn't hang in the air the way moisture and water vapour do. Yet, here we are... In an ominously frozen cloud. It's not even that cold, which, for anyone not familiar with Canada in the winter, still means colder than a walk-in freezer... Well I suppose that's enough about the weather.
Ice may be defying gravity, but the stock market certainly hasn't been. Some may be surprised by this, I am not. I've spent a lifetime looking at cause and effect and wondering why so few do this math to it's full conclusion.
I know it's easy to get caught up in the web as we are preyed upon from every angle, and lied to about all of it 24/7. It's all about stealing focus in a bait and switch magic act of pulling a quarter out of your ear, then pocketing it. Yes, that was the trick, it was your quarter, the ear thing was the distraction.
Politicians cannot change things despite whatever they may promise. They are either bound by whomever owns them or bound to contracts made before their rise to power. Trade agreements supersede local laws to such an extent that a Canadian company can sue Canada for aiding a Canadian competitor, so why should anyone have faith in government? Why does anyone still hold hope that the next time could be different? The only way it can be different is through a massive upheaval.
Too bad massive upheaval is already planned... We may not recognise which upheaval is thiers and which one's ours. I suspect some of us may see the earmarks, but that vast majority will not, much as they do not see the patterns emerging now. Unless we simply have death from above.
