Remembrance Day has been used once again by the Corporate Pacification Committee and Emperor Harper to spread as much false fear and dogmatic jingoism as the compliant mass media can handle. With nary a mention of the closing window to jump into the biggest corporate welfare program ever - the F-35.

But this is hardly the only transgression. The terrible income-splitting plan that benefits the usual crowd only. Despite the constant propaganda in favour. The refusal to examine a national daycare plan. Despite Quebec's implementation of one. The Government keeps talking about the medical marijuana initiative and it's "progress". But the red tape gets longer and thicker for licenced growers. Watch for a monopoly of friends to appear, just like privatized alcohol sales.

Joining me to analyze these issues is Polly Ticks @PTicks. She describes herself as a 40 something marketing, research and social media consultant. A reformed political worker and avowed centrist, who flirts with libertarianism. She has voted for all parties at some point, now advocating for those with no voice like military, medical marijuana patients and vulnerable families. She has a long history of volunteering, community involvement, and is currently a PR and research student.

Plus updates on future shows, guests, and a new feature describing what the psychotroll will post the day after the show. Join us!
