WFMU' beware of the Blog is a highly entertaining blog in terms of music and what odd things it can dig up .

The following two links are highly educational in WWII history, swing music and propaganda:

When Neo-Nazis launched Operation Schoolyard in Calgary earlier this year the punk rock and hard core music label Insurgence Records released a sampler to counter it Project Boneyard Vol II. Looking back at Charlie and his Orchestra, we can see the origins of this latest fascist propaganda plan.

    We're seeing the effects of deregulated tuition for international students here at the University of Manitoba. International students already here are desperate for work on campus because tuition just keeps going up and their savings haven't magically increased by whatever obscene triple digit percentage international student fees have gone up by. I know folks who have had to reduce the number of courses they're taking and delay their graduation because they can't afford it. We can see it in the shifting demographics of international students too.

    It is so absurd, tuition should be free for everyone, including international students. And there shouldn't be ridiculous levels of red tape. Did the people making that cartoon ever stop to think "wait a minute, this is ridiculous" at any point? International students bring a ton of economic benefits, and improve the university by bringing in diverse viewpoints and experiences to our university community. Why should we be keeping them out by allowing university administrators to treat them like cash cows?
