I Really Got To Keep Up With This Thing!!

I know, I know!! Hey I get busy and so many things are talked about so much that blogging it seems redundant. Take for instance the Caledonia native stand-off. What can be said that hasn't been said already? Residents are pissed and feeling abandoned by their political leaders, and natives are as indignant as ever. This may be politically incorrect but the Europeans have won and conquered!!! Is it right? Is it fair? Of course not!! But this is the reality. They can choose to work with the system to improve it to their benefit, or they can "rage against the machine". I know they have legitmate greivances when dealing with the "white system" and they are very true, but think about it. Would it not be better to find a way to beat the system at it's own game? It's my understanding that reserve natives can receive a Canadian university education for free. (Well at tax payers expense really). Can you imagine if all these young native people took up this offer, become lawyers, and fight the system from within and made their point? In essence we would be funding their fight! That would get respect rather than hold a town of people, 5-7 generations removed from the "oppressors" that did this to the natives, and innocent bystanders, hostage to their demands. If you can't beat them, join them, THEN beat them at their own game!

In other news, Apple released their iBook replacement, The Macbook. All I can say is I WANT ONE!!!!!!!! Cheers!
