I say bring back the Yogic Flying party. They looked like a fun bunch to hang around with.

Were their mascots Yogi Bear and his little buddy BooBoo? (Yogi never went anywhere without BooBoo.)

Nope - Doug Henning.

I think..and I do.....The Party that should be brought back is...Ya ready for this????

THE RHINO PARTY!!!! Yes, the RHINO PARTY....That was a party! Good food, lotsa good ol' CANADIAN beer and music! Also, they talked politics. Sort of. They talked about making the work week only four days and making Thursdays free beer day....AND, they actually had candidates in an election. Don't remember which one but they actually had real, live candidates.

Of course, some of them had four legs and barked but they WERE candidates. People actually voted for them. Not many, but some. Needless to say, the RHINO PARTY didn't win any seats. The RHINO PARTY demanded a recount, after the election, and are still waiting. I think they have been waiting since 1993........

Actually, I quite cynically think a lot of good is coming out of it, including a total rethink of the stupid way the financial systems operate and a realisation that greed really does backfire.

I totally agree, but the only thing is, when greed backfires and incredibly rich people lose a bit of money, an even greedier and richer bunch of people from one certain country (can you guess which one?) decide to give them 500 billion dollars to help them out. "Fuck the poor, they can stay poor, but my rich buddies, hell there is no way they are losing any money!"

Yeah, it's not my idea of a solution. If I had 500 billion, I'd put it straight to major infrastructure and energy efficiency projects. Build new railroads, wind farms, solar farms and geothermal plants. And spend several billion dollars stimulating energy efficient housing. This kind of response would create a massive number of jobs and at the same time have a positive effect on the much greater (and more pressing!) problem that our world needs to deal with, namely climate change.
