South Korea is coming to northeast British Columbia. It was reported this week that State-run Korea Gas has signed a deal with Canadian gas major EnCana covering three fields in the province of British Columbia. Korea Gas will take a 50% interest, for a price tag of $1.1 billion.
The militarization of the continent, along with U.S.-Canada integration is taking place in areas of law enforcement, border services and the armed forces. More is being done to better protect the northern border, but somehow government needs to strike a balance between security and the movement of goods and people.

March 8, 2010 /EIN PRESSWIRE/ Subsidies established during NAFTA negotiations to help small Mexican farmers compete with their neighbors to the north are being doled out to the families of drug traffickers and senior government officials, the Los Angeles Times reports.
This corruption has both driven subsistence farmers out of operation and encouraged the planting of illegal crops.
Of the $1.3 billion in subsidies given to 2.7 million Mexican farmers, as much as 80% of the money went to 20% of the farmers. Most telling may be the fact that Mexico has gone from a country that fed itself to an importer of food.

THE REALITIES OF INTERPERSONAL COMBAT
I will start this article with a question: What are you doing on a regular basis (i.e. daily) to prepare yourself mentally, physically, emotionally, and most of all, spiritually, to not just survive, but
prevail during a violent encounter?
My comment: I am including this story today because whatever you may
