Canada Student Loans Service Centre Sucks

They are totally screwing me at student loans and there is nothing I can do. I paid my interest up to date at the end of August and they told me that there would be 15 business days to switch me from being a "payer" to being a "borrower". I was upset because I would not get my money until 24th of September, but fortunately I had put away enough money to survive through the first month.

So I phoned the today, the 23rd, to make sure everything was going smooth and the guy told me there was a mistke and this should have been dispersed weeks ago and now it will be another 14 business days before I will get it. Now that will take me into October and I have definitely not set aside enough money for that month.

Hello from The Redneck Party USA

Hello Folks!

We have created a Grassroots Movement called Redneck Party. We take our name from the "Redneck War" of 1921. Google it! My people marched with red bandannas tied around their necks so they wouldn't shoot each other. Seriously though, amidst being called commies they were some of the most courageous and valiant Patriots of their day.

Government going back for more vigilantes to go after enemies of the state.

Since the police can't be guaranteed to be able to get away with racial profiling I guess the government figures they can deputize a bunch of vigilante yahoos to go after anyone of the "profile" of the persons they are apparently looking for. Link to report of new list of targets:

http://www.cbc.ca/news/politics/story/2011/08/18/toews-criminals-toronto...

This makes possible state-sponsored and sanctioned harassment of immigrants from places the government does not like-- anyone harassed who is not actually a war criminal would be considered just a victim of a mistake and the person doing the harassment an over-zealous member of the public.
