Where did all those anti-american activists go in Canada? Actions against Imperialist War and Aggression. The communist-marxist in 2008 were getting some great press coverage in rallying against the "evil American Empire" a few years ago did they retire to Boca-Raton?
"It is against the will (of Canadians) that the government has decided to extend the military presence (in Afghanistan) until 2011," said Raymond Legault, a spokesman for the anti-war group Collectif Echec a la Guerre.George Bush was in power in the U.S. for eight years. He was framed an oppressor, climate denier by American, International and our own Canadian media. They had a passion for reporting and telling us how bad the Republican Executive Branch in the United States was on a regular basis. The Democrats had majority of seats in the Senate and Congrees for the last few years of his presidency. Very few Democrats opposed military action in Afghanistan.
Mission Accomplished, the two conflicts are over. Did I miss the memo?
Winds of Change in 2010
What has changed for these environmental activists, anti-war protestors in the U.S. or Canada? Is this Democratic President bad for business?
The Canadian government led by Stephen Harper has aligned himself with the Democrats in adopting a North American solution. The Obama administration has been reluctant along with China to sign onto the COP treaty.
We have the largest spill in history, larger than the Exxon Valdez currently taking place. We have BP contract employees with U.S. Coast Guard banning the free press on public beaches trying to report on the oil spill.
We still have two active conflicts in Iraq , Afghanistan and the anti-war protests gone.

How does this compare with today with the Obama administration: how does the American, Canadian, International media in reporting or examining the war, lives lost, environmental actions by the Democratic majority in Congress, Senate and executive branch today?
Carbon Emissions, the environment, war mongering from our American neighbour to the south?
I remember the blame being squarely put on the Executive branch in delaying progessive legislation when a Republican President was in charge. Today the criticism is to lay blame on a minority of Republicans who won't get along with the democratic majority.
What party is delaying the progressive legislation to fix it, are they also in the pocket of Big Oil, the Defense Industry?
Wildlife being killed by Windmills is under reported or ignored by the media, but if a bird is covered in oil it newsworthy for weeks. Is just me that notices the blind spot for the environmentalists, news media from the U.S., International, and Canada in being critical and reporting with the exception Fox News?
Do you think the bird really cares how it is killed?
