Yes, the majority are Albertans but quite a good number of BC'ers too.

People in this part of the country say that if it weren't for the Canadians our economy me would be completely dead in the water and I believe it.

BNN had a show on up here recently on different rules and caveats for Canadian buyers of US real estate. seemed like a lot more i's to dot and t's to cross for a foreigner to think about.. including taxation than buying here.

Many of the buyers are from Calgary. Those guys have money to burn.

I don't know if you are familiar with the real estate market in Alberta and BC but their prices would make our prices during the bubble look like a distress sale.

Who said the government is afraid to release a bad jobs report because the stock market might throw a hissy fit? Of course if the market is closed for a holiday than I guess they will be a little less hesitant. Lee Adler last night predicted the low jobs gain.

MW - i must say you, bring an entirely new concept to meaning of the crucifix

>>>>The reason they have models of Jesus on the cross is a permanent warning to everyone about what will happen to you if you defy the church or the state.<<<<

pity me, for over 40 yrs i've entertained the notion God Himself paid this planet a visit and wasn't well received.

i heartily agree with your conclusion though:

>>>>Most people are in favour of such repression. Americans will vote for anyone but Ron Paul in droves.<<<<

The NFP figures were not good and couldn't be fudged (much), but read on...with thanks to ZH and in the spirit of Shadow Stats:

zerohedge.com

Sick of the BLS propaganda? Then do the following calculation with us: using BLS data, the US civilian non-institutional population was 242,269 in January, an increase of 1.7 million month over month: apply the long-term average labor force participation rate of 65.8% to this number (because as chart 2 below shows, people are not retiring as the popular propaganda goes: in fact labor participation in those aged 55 and over has been soaring as more and more old people have to work overtime, forget retiring), and you get 159.4 million: that is what the real labor force should be. The BLS reported one? 154.4 million: a tiny 5 million difference. Then add these people who the BLS is purposefully ignoring yet who most certainly are in dire need of labor and/or a job to the 12.758 million reported unemployed by the BLS and you get 17.776 million in real unemployed workers. What does this mean? That using just the BLS denominator in calculating the unemployed rate of 154.4 million, the real unemployment rate actually rose in January to 11.5%. Compare that with the BLS reported decline from 8.5% to 8.3%. It also means that the spread between the reported and implied unemployment rate just soared to a fresh 30 year high of 3.2%. And that is how with a calculator and just one minute of math, one strips away countless hours of BLS propaganda.

You have lived under an illusion Lz. < for over 40 yrs i've entertained the notion God Himself paid this planet a visit and wasn't well received. > If there is a Big Spook doing the rounds, with the powers ascribed to him, [apparently a bloke but I have no idea why he'd be a bloke if he doesn't have a sex partner and mating needs other than the old alpha male monkey approach to human life], I'm pretty sure he could visit more than once. He could produce thousands of such messengers, every year. Try crucifying all of them.

Any sensible child will take the image of Jesus nailed up as a warning of what will happen to them if they put a foot wrong. Who did it? The Roman Empire and those in power. The state. People who lust after pre-eminent power of the state are megalomaniacs who will kill those who oppose them. They dress themselves up in laws of the land and other paraphernalia of power, but it's simply power they want.

Peer to peer processing is getting another chance these days. This is nothing less than the Second Coming. People around the world are bypassing governments and going directly from person to person via Cyberspace. China is working really hard to get control and keep a lid on it. The Land of the Free is far from it these days. It's not so much the Home of the Brave as the Cage of the Compliant. In the "free" world, freedom is increasingly circumscribed.

"Look what we will do to you" is the message of Easter.

Praise the Lord and pass the money, er, I mean, pass the gravy, you dumb turkey.

I never cease to be amazed by people's naivete and gullibility. On the other hand, consider the inexorable pressure that a time share sales team can bring to bear once they lock the doors to the 4-hr free breakfast session. Imagine what a "pastor" in a position of trust can do to sheep, er, I mean, his flock.
