A Hard Rain's A-Gonna Fall

What did you see, my blue eyed-son?
What did you see, my darling young one?
I saw a newborn baby with wolves all around it,
I saw a highway of diamonds with nobody on it,
I saw a black branch with blood that kept drippin',
I saw a room full of men with their hammers a-bleedin',
I saw a white ladder all covered with water,
I saw ten thousand talkers whose tongues were all broken,
I saw guns and sharp swords in the hands of young children
And it's a hard, and it's a hard, it's a hard, it's a hard,
And it's a hard rain's a-gonna fall

Time for a couple of important Canadian blog recommendations.

Canada is experiencing massive cultural and social convulsions which are becoming more boldly exploited now by former main stream media elites and governmental interests who no longer have ability, or the need quite frankly, to shroud or control their socialistic constraints upon free people in an increasingly less free society.

The revolution is truly on and I don't say words like that lightly. I happen to be much more prudent and constrained in my observances of these matters, but people need to become more aware of what is really going on in this country if they have any desire to preserve the true values of Canada which this country was founded upon.

Maybe it's too late. I hope not.

One way or the other, there are alternative voices who ought to be heard and are being heard now despite indifference by some to the important issues being presented on a daily basis.

Two Canadian bloggers who have greatly impressed me with their passion, intelligence and scope of understanding of the variety of concerns they bring to the table are, Nicol DuMoulin at The War Room and Kate McMillan at Small Dead Animals. These are great blogs published by exceedingly bright, intelligent commentators, both of whom offer a plethora of blogroll links at their respective sites. Check out "Taxing the Church..." and "Salvation or a Bowl of Soup..." at small dead animals for example. You simply won't hear or read important, cogent arguments like these presented anywhere else in our lame stream media in Canada.

We're just barely allowed to view the Fox network.

I recommend these two great sites. They are indispensable to our country's social and political culture in my opinion.

Especially in these perilous times.

These are brave and courageous people whom I will fight in the trenches with, would defend to the death and give unreserved honor to for their talent and their spiritual strength in times of darkening shadows. FRANKtalk will stand with all those who stand up to be counted and to fight when necessary for what we believe in and for what we hold to be just as precious...the freedom to express that which we believe, undeterred by state sanctions of those values which determine our spiritual destiny as human beings.

No leftist-Liberal government, no elite media community, will erode the convictions and determination of millions of conservative people in this land who will, once fully awakened to threat, push back on bolder and more definitive encroachments on our liberty.

The War Room and Small Dead Animals are in the fight.

They are confidently leading.

As a Catholic and as a Conservative, I join with both of these very impressive people in their strong defense of our tenuous freedoms of religion and our threatened freedom of expression.

And I won't back down!

Both sites are linked right here at FRANKtalk.

Do yourself a favor and check them both out.

The Times They Are A-Changin'

Couldn't help but go for yet another Bob Dylan song title in bringing forward this piece of news in reference to the evolution occurring here in Canada with respect to the radio industry and the implications for our antiquated and outdated system of elite control called CanCon or Canadian Content. Or, as I once described it, Canadian Contentment. Contempt is more like it.

Anyway, the sands of time and technology have finally caught up to the elite and comfortable establishment interests which must now deal with what to do about all their buggy whips and anvils. I have an idea or two, but we'll deal with that issue another time.

For now, my thanks go out to my brother-in-arms associate and good friend, Lloyd Doyle at for forwarding this great article link on to me in recent days. It's a must read if you want to learn about what is happening in the radio realm in this country. I have a ton of stuff to address on a broader range of radio issues eventually, but it isn't timely for inclusion at this blog site. Yet. It will be soon though and I'll have both barrels loaded and cocked.

Radio and collective rights licensers just heard the other shoe drop.

It's not going to get any mellower for them from now on either.

So don't depend on any socialist organization of corrupt accountants network or friends of the CBC to give you the truth. They're buried in the truth and their air has just run out.

Oh, Happy Day...

RIP Peter Orasuk

An old friend died this past Sunday.

There is much I could relate about Peter Orasuk from my own personal knowledge of long ago past associations in our younger and wilder days, but that's all just so much ancient history now.

Instead, let me tell you that Peter Orasuk was a natural born leader and a very smart man.

At a particular point in his earlier life, he surrendered to the Will of God to quit his evil ways and start preaching the Gospel. His conversion completely altered the course of his life, and the lives of multiple thousands of people from around the world. Total darkness became total light. Not a minute too soon either as I recall. The profound impact of Peter Orasuk's dramatic turnaround in his life affected many dimensions of many lives. In the end, and for nearly 3 decades, he lived for God and his mission to spread the Good News of Christ. And now he has died to Christ.

Peter Orasuk is at long last embracing his eternal peace with his Lord and Saviour in Heaven.

Prayers and condolences to Peter's wife and family.
