1,500 of those deaths are on Barack's watch. Also going up yesterday was Kat's "Kat's Korner: Heart Walkin' Good,"
So those are the good things, now for the bad.
Do you know his name?
He is a US war resister in Canada. He's sought asylum in a Canadian church and been there for some time. He is most likely the next war resister the Stephen Harper government will attempt to force out of the country.
Last month, they forced out Kim Rivera. Her attorney, Alyssa Manning, argued to the court that Kim would be punished severely as Robin Long and Cliff Cornell were when they were forced out of the country. The Stephen Harper government insisted they'd be treated just fine.
Courage to Resist used to be an organization to watch. When Bush was in office. It's now a namby-pamby crap-fest. They can't stand up to Barack. They had a weak-ass 'article' about protests at Barack's headquarters in Oakland but 'forgot' to tell you about the arrests. Because they can't make Barack look bad.
They're just another group of tired whores in a country of many. And I wouldn't be weighing in but C.I. and I were talking this weekend about the stunt they pulled.
They posted an interview with 'war resister' -- as opposed to war resister -- Skyler James. No offense to her, but she went to Canada for a number of reasons -- primarily how she was treated because she was a lesbian.
And there was Skyler telling this story of all these wrongs done to her -- she didn't have toilet paper. It was a long walk to the mess hall and she couldn't always get a ride. She partied on Memorial Day and got bruised but can't remember how.
She makes it out to be a party at a disappointing hotel. That's the take away from her lament.
So, as C.I. notes in the snapshot, when Alyssa Manning next stands before a judge arguing not to deport a war resister, the government will say, 'Look, don't take our word for it that they're not treated worse than others, read Skyler James' own account. She was running all over the base and partying and out in three months."
She's really not a war resister to begin with. Second, her little story is harmful for those trying to remain in Canada.
Courage to Resist is a bulls**t organization that now harms the cause of war resisters.
This is C.I.'s "Iraq snapshot" for Monday:
