This is a stupid thing to say:

Are we supposed to be gullible enough to assume that places that bought our steel just sat on their hands — or went to alternative sources, and won’t come back?

Life isn’t static or in a bubble. It moves. One setback brings with it a bunch of other troubles and the old scripts don’t work.

The federal liberals are in deep shit, and they cannot bank on the US’s abortion bullshit to frighten people into voting for them because there will be more dirt to contend with by the time the official election starts. Nor will CBC’s propaganda spin trick people into voting for them again. Nor can they bribe a dead profession.

The problem is more than just the Jive Turkey prime minister, but he is a prima donna who isn’t pleased when he cannot control his image. This means his motives will aways be to manipulate the optics and let everything else slide, and the Grits are stuck in a bygone era where they were the Government Party and could lead people by the nose because they had no other options.

Those days are gone. Abortion is not going to save the Grits. The lifting of tariffs is not going to save them, either.

They are charlatans at heart: they are not original or innovative. They coast on a status quo and have no idea about anything. Legalized weed did not catapult them. Neither will fear about abortion rights.

After all, the Grits had a whole term to codify those rights, and they never bothered; so it’s not as if women’s rights were ever a genuine priority for them.

Because it was never about feminism to Canada’s little Caesar: it was always about his image, and what pleases him. Politicians are never about the people. They are about themselves, but usually, they have the intelligence to know how to effectively pretend they do care. Jive Turkey isn’t that bright or capable.

You can see a major Liberal clean-up detail going on — and one so obvious that it is too dutifully following a script. This is a middle class middle manager job of it. That’s not a good sign. It means the real talent have walked away, and the C-listers are left. That bodes poorly for the country no matter what.

Canada had to give a lot of concessions in order to get the tariffs lifted for optics’ sake. You can use the agreement as toilet paper. This is a country in the hands of rank losers hoping a stoned populace will be too oblivious to know they are being played and will vote for them again.

The Left has been splintered, however, and there are more ghosts than SNC-Lavalin and the Mark Norman Debacle. Timing is everything and these exposed problems are a mere preface: not all of the dots have been placed to connect. An October surprise is in the cards.

The clean-up detail is too big and complex for the Grits to handle. They are used to coasting, not working. This election will be interesting in that the Grits will waste their resources running on a hamster wheel blindfolded. It will be a circus and a comedy filled with clowns, but when you get things because of your name, you miss the nuances of power, and using political fuckery as a strategy. In any case, little Caesar will not be pleased…

Canada is second in the world for cocaine use? You don't say!

Oh, it explains a lot.

Screen Shot 2019-05-18 at 9.47.20 PM.png

Doing drugs is a form of escape when you don’t have the mettle to admit there is a problem and then confront it with a workable plan.

Canada also has a serious problem with alcohol.

This is the way you run away from problems.

For all the talk about the Canadian economy, people are maxed out and very close to economic ruin.

This is why we have shitty governments. When you are bladdered or stoned, you retreat into your delusions and think this is a way to deal with things. It is also the reason the federal regime banked on legalizing weed, and that has been a secret disaster: people are sticking to the drug dealer they highly trust and don’t just smoke joints — they do other drugs, and why go pay more for the legalized stuff when you have cheaper drugs and more of them from your regular pusher…

Polls got an election wrong again? You don't say!

This time, in Australia.

People will not cop to their politically incorrect beliefs. They will tell you how much they love paying taxes and worry about the environment, but then they vote for the guys who promise jobs and do not seem like they will be doling out the dough for various groups. You can take that to the bank, but the press seems perpetually surprised by it every time…

Western Europe's child molestation problem: People are giving money to restore a burned church in France. Are you kidding me?

We know that the Vatican has allowed priests to molest children with no consequences for a long, long time.

When Notre Dame burned, instead of walking away, countries are giving taxpayers’ money to rebuilding it, and that is taking away money from victims who were molested by the clergy.

But Western Europe never likes to look inward to their own rot.

Children are getting abused at very alarming rates.

And nothing is being done about it. As usual.

It is not as if other countries can have any virtuous airs. We have American judges who think child molesters make good Christians.

I have zero tolerance for people who prey upon children. If you do not have the drive to protect the vulnerable, there is something seriously wrong with you…

Hamilton City Hall's whining about "efficiencies." Please someone introduce them to reality.

This pissing contest between the brats at Hamilton City Hall and the Ford regime is one for the books. The only representative the city has in the government is Donna Skelly, someone the mayor has publicly dissed and treated patronizingly before she became an MPP.

Skelly is telling the city that they can trim their fat. She is absolutely correct. You see the nepotistic hires twirling their eyes in the bullshit jobs. Skelly had a short stint as a councillor in City Hall — and she would know.

Hamilton always shoots itself in the foot: they stick by the NDP no matter how they aren’t getting anywhere by it. When the city was a Liberal stronghold, its fortunes were far better. This last election showed that doing the same thing and expecting a different outcome truly was bonkers.

And now the expectant temper tantrums. The city lost Basic Income by voting NDP, and then having to bend to Conservative overlords. The city owes Kathleen Wynne an apology.

They also owe one to Skelly. She is the lone voice — and they keep spitting in her face. The mayor should do whatever it takes to make nice with her because things are about to get a lot worse for the city. The US tariffs may be lifted, but companies have had a chance to go elsewhere for their steel, and the delay was long enough to show that there are plenty of alternatives. There is nothing to cheer about here.

But while Hamilton whines how they have no fat to cut, they find all sorts of money to waste.

Screen Shot 2019-05-18 at 2.25.16 PM.png

Those utility boxes do not need to be beautified. There is a perfect example of waste, just as the city spend money in a stupid no-starter bod to woo Amazon to the city, as if.

A forensic accountant looking over the city’s books would be a great way to test the city’s theory. It is long overdue, but with its uppity attitude when it has no cards to play, shows just how clueless the overlords in town really are…

New York Times spews garbage and is not the feminist paper of record: How journalism failed women and still do in 2019.

The New York Times is pure garbage, and this bullshit article can be classified under Too Little, Too Late, Assholes.

Why do we have psychopaths get elected? We absolutely know these hypocrites lie to the public, have affairs, take bribes, and do all of the things that they proclaim they find morally reprehensible.

I know this because I worked as a journalist and hung around the halls of various public offices and saw the floozies get passed around various politicians who then gave them patronage appointments — and journalists saw this up close every day and said nothing.

Journalists also play those games as the Times’s own Ali Watkins did…and faced no consequences for it.

So to all of you women who are upset about the oppressive and illegal anti-abortion laws, here is the memo:

Journalists could have exposed these con artists before they ever got elected. They could have told you about their mistresses, lies, hypocrisy, and every other immoral, illegal, and shady thing they do out in the open. They could snap pictures of their drug use, casting couch antics, and everything else, but they keep quiet.

In other words, it is the sin of omission.

So let us not pretend the press is a friend to women. It never was, and it never will be.

They could also expose the lies and cons of far Right activists by exposing their affairs and how they snag their man by getting knocked up before marriage. They could expose these charlatans with ease.

So if you want to know how to break the iron grip of a lunatic fringe, start by demanding that newspapers such as the Times reveal all the dirty little secrets they are keeping from the public.

It will sicken you. It will shock and appal you — but by now, it should never surprise you…

Why feminism keeps getting it wrong: Stop putting all your eggs in one political basket.

Republican State Sen. Kim LaSata is channelling Dr. Josef Mengele. The worthless motherfucker had this to say about abortion:

“Of course it should be hard!” the senator from St. Joseph exclaimed. “And the procedure should be painful! And you should allow God to take over!! And you should deliver that baby!”

That’s not godly, you worthless cocksucker. That is devil-worshipping. That is how psychopaths think. They always find a way to blame victims for torturing them. Why is this bimbo bitch allowed to be in power in the first place? If this shit is such a good Christian, then please, LaSata, tell me where in the bible does it say to do this to women? You’re the kind Jesus stood up to, not for. Fuck you. You are weak and trying to prey upon the strong.

I am certain Hell is making a special padded room just for her when it is her time for eternal damnation, but for the rest of us moral and sane women who cherish our freedoms from torture-lovers and other scum, why aren’t women free in 2019?

Where did feminism go wrong?

For starters, it’s allowing this kind of propaganda to corrupt our thinking.

5c005baba182300f0b2c4ed2-750-563.jpg

What the fuck are you trying to prove? That you are helpless and weak? Don’t listen to Margaret Atwood. She’s an oblivious tool.

So, uh, no.

Wrong mindset.

Try this instead.

viking-woman-warrior.jpg

And then this.

856d1ae005c44466d7defbb7bc6f4754.jpg

Feminism has two major problems now.

The first, it doesn’t go for the jugular. It is always reactive and always defensive.

Try the Chicago Way.

But instead of sending people to morgues, you should be sending bad policies and ideas to the morgue.

Such as anti-abortion.

If you do not believe in abortion, then don’t have one. Your right ends where my body begins.

Feminists have to learn to send misogynistic concepts to the morgue.

One way is to start pushing to have men’s reproductive rights on the table — and as anti-abortion laws are illegal because they target sex, which is against the law, start making legal arguments that if women are confined, then men must be confined as well.

If anti-abortionists realize the grave they are burying feminists in will be their final resting place for their own freedom, power, and control, they will not know where to turn.

If they insist on being devil-worshippers, they made a deal with the devil and it is high-time they start paying up. They alllow incest, rape, and child molestation to go unpunished; ergo they have no moral compass and cannot be trusted.

That breaks down one fortress. That’s the eye of the storm — and it allows feminism to start fighting — and then learning the methods of their oppressors. Stop fighting to prevent losses and start fighting to win.

Take spoils and then learn.

But that’s just half a battle.

The second one is more important.

Feminists stick with Left-wing parties which is an incredibly stupid method.

Realistically, there is no fucking in way in Hell that you are going to have one party rule forever. Sooner or later, they fuck up and the other side will take over.

Are you going to have to lose sleep after every election? What’s wrong with you?

Rich white men never have to worry: they always give the same amount of money to both parties, and no matter what, the regime will jive with their intentions.

Feminists have to start going after Right-wing parties — and breaking into those parties and keep doing it until their rights and freedoms are always off the table.

When you storm and flood, dumb fucks like LaSata cannot function: she just memorizes a little rule and thinks she is a cunning strategist who has a fortress where she cannot be challenged. Wipe the floor with her — not just through a Democratic ticket — but also a Republican one.

And should the sexists form a new party — do the same thing.

Instead of moping and being useless in red cosplay, start becoming a living nightmare to oppressors.

Break their rigs. Do not validate their structures of thought.

Suffragists broke into politics by fighting for the right to vote.

You prevent regression if you fight to break into sexist parties and make them bend to your demands.

May every single party be civilized and not try to gain and elevate themselves by oppressing and stomping on others. Fuck that shit. Enough is enough.

If you do not believe in abortion, don’t have an abortion. The end. That’s your sanctioned insanity.

But you do not have the right to tell other adults what to do with their bodies. That’s plain evil.

So don’t morally masturbate and pretend you believe in a god if your ideas involve inflicting pain and torture like a Nazi because no one is buying your toxic garbage…

Federal government media fund will stop innovation in its tracks? Darling, Canadian journalism never had it.

That the Canadian federal media slush fund is a bad idea is an understatement. It’s immoral and allowing a government to interfere with the press is the manipulative.

But when you have an industry that is arrogant, ignorant, and mentally lazy, they are going to seek it. Actively. They want the paper crown and the delusion that they have power and control. It will be parasitic — to take a concept from Thomas Sowell — and so long as they can keep up the pretence, they misuse the conception of journalism to justify their con games.

So to read this editorial is a real knee-slapper. What do you mean the fund will stifle innovation? Canadian journalism shuns innovation because they are not there to inform — but perform. It is a sham. Journalism lives in a fantasy world where they fancy themselves as movie characters who are valiant knights — people in power will every once in a while leak things to them — but they never uncover things by themselves.

So the industry was never created to innovate — you need an alternative to it in order for any real change to happen…

Oppressing freedom of speech, Canada-style.

Never let the government dictate how to think.

I believe in freedom of expression, even for vile trolls. I want to know what people think so that I am prepared and that scum aren’t swept under the rug.

But the Canadian federal regime wants a “digital charter” — Pierre Trudeau codified human rights with his charter, while his son Justin takes them away with his.

This is the equivalent of forbidding danger signs near cliffs and landmines. Censorship is tantamount to propaganda by omission: if we erase all those inconvenient rage puking of sickos, then people think things are safe and good, and they are neither.

But we have a cowardly government that is too lazy and stupid to march right into the eye of the storm and confront reality.

This “charter” helps no one but those who want to hide messes and then proclaim there isn’t anything bad happening…

Anti-Choice Propaganda is a scam, and it is time to call it for what it is.

Want to sign a petition?

It shouldn’t be voluntary, however, according to his own logic. He is not up to genetic snuff. The vasectomy should be mandatory.

Not his choice.

Because for him to spread his defective seeds is highly immoral.

We have fascist state regimes in the US trying to take away abortion rights, and they will ultimately fail.

Laws only work if people believe in them and legitimize authority.

Project Syndicate, as usual, is garbage. They are entrenching the legitimacy of fascist arguments by indulging their rigs.

And if feminists want to truly break barriers, they have to stop using old arguments and start exposing the true reasons why people are against abortion.

Getting knocked up to chain your man who will support you is a fine old tradition. Religion has nothing to do with it. I have heard far too many women tell me how they got their man that way so they can be Stay-At-Mall moms, aimlessly pushing a shopping cart up and down the aisles at Wal-Mart all day long.

And men who are anti-abortion are losers who cannot keep a woman any other way but knock her up enough times so she can’t get away.

This is how morally repulsive people function. The narrative spin they puke is a sham.

If there is an option of abortion — and it is seen as the moral alternative to exploiting babies as a means to an end — then their gambit can no longer work.

So let’s stop pretending and indulging grifters like Ooosterhoff.

Anti-abortion laws are a form of propaganda to instil fear in women, so they always go on the defensive.

This creates an artificial structure of thought that is always rigged against independent women, and that game has got to stop once and for all.

We have a primitivism in Western culture where we have immoral parents refuse to vaccinate their children because of some tiny risk of a reaction — but will gamble with their children’s lives, exposing them to illnesses that will sterilize them, cripple them, disfigure them, disable them, and even kill them.

But once we indulged one immoral set of irresponsible and immoral assholes in some idea of being “open-minded”, abortion was next on the table.

It is a foot-in-the-door technique that the Right use all the time. That’s why they oppose sex education — they know parents will be on side and then once they get into school boards, they want to teach creationism.

If independent women want to break the shackles of this tiresome game, this is the time to take an inventory of all the places where this sick game festers.

And number one on the list is battered women’s shelters. These are immoral. This is a concentration camp for victimized females and children.

Number one: do away with the idea of a woman having to be inconvenienced because of an uncivilized and defective male.

Number two: start targeting the rights of men — capital punishment for rape, incest and human trafficking. The end.

And if a woman should be party to any of it, she gets the equal punishment. The end.

Then we go after wife-beaters. Women automatically get the house and chattles. The wife beater gets sent to some forsaken place to scrub toilets for the rest of his life. Fuck him.

Then we go after men’s reproductive rights. They have no say in anything — from who they can fuck and who their sperm will impregnate.

Men have all sorts of militias when they don’t get things their own way. Women should try those army boots for size.

Women are always being accused of all sorts of things — if given the name, why not play the game?

Be unpredictable and be feral.

This all reminds me of a self-defence expert who made a very good observation: in many cases of date rape, the woman hit the man first.

He was behaving badly, and she whacked him, hoping that he would smarten up.

But then the woman stuck around, hoping the man would change his behaviour, but he merely got worse.

Don’t wait for feedback was the message. You strike and you get the hell out.

And that’s what independent women need to do: strike to shatter the rigged game board so that no one will ever forget that day for eternity — and then get the hell out of the old structures and start from scratch.

The new rules are simple: you either behave like a normal human being or we treat you like a beast who cannot be trusted. You impose your will on one gender, well then, that comes at a steep price.

What is good for the goose is good for the gander. If we do not allow abortion for rape or incest, then rapists must be exterminated so that they do not pollute the gene pool.

No stalking. No threats. No hitting. No killing. No acting like a worthless coward.

Women have not even started. There are no cities, countries, or political systems founded for women with women’s needs and wants in mind. None. Women are always reacting to patriarchal structures instead of rejecting those systems. and creating their own

The abortion campaign is on a state level — and as I said way back in 2016, the Left was asleep at the wheel in far too many places.

Hillary Clinton was feminism’s greatest misdirection: women were essentially duped into focussing all of their energies on her instead of keeping an eye on state races — the ones that actually had the real and significant impact on their daily lives.

Clinton’s campaign was a scam campaign. It was like the con game of Find the Lady — because women were so focussed on Clinton, they ignored state campaigns and their would-be oppressors took full advantage of it.

Feminists in the US have no one to blame for their state of affairs but themselves.

You build strength from the ground up: you begin with the municipal races, and then state or provincial, and then federal.

Doug Ford cut off the NDP and Liberals at the knees because he saw what far too many feminists still don’t see. He mowed down Toronto City Hall so that they couldn’t plant seeds on a local level.

Women do not have their own war manuals, and now that oversight has become a serious problem.

But with every problem, there are multiple solutions. There is no reason to be afraid, and every reason to be brave.

And right now, ceasing to indulge old con games would be a very good idea…

Globe and Mail's propaganda about the Ontario Premier's propaganda: It's all propaganda, all of the time.

The Globe and Mail is babbling propaganda against the Ontario Premier’s propaganda.

Ontario News Now would never have been a thing if journalism in Ontario had an ounce of competency.

When you look down on people and craft narratives to make your side seem superior, you will alienate those people who will look elsewhere.

And the Globe is not one to talk. People don’t refer to it as the Toronto Globe and Mail for no reason: it serves as Toronto-centric propaganda as the rest of the country are seen as lesser beings.

But the Ford Brothers had their own radio program on Newstalk 1010. They were given unfettered access to mainstream news outlets. When politicians are given those kind of platforms, don’t be surprised when they cut their teeth and then bypass the system the way millions of other people did with social media.

And people are not going to see any problem with it because this is the Age of Propaganda.

When you have news outlets blur lines, they shouldn’t get huffy when people they enabled take full advantage of it.

They sized up the sham of the press, and then build their own in the bargain…

Grifter-watching in an Age of Propaganda.

This article in the Smithsonian magazine is an oldie, but a goodie, but then again, I have always been a fan of magic.

But this applies to other areas of life.

Like what to look for when you don’t want to believe that you are being played.

In my life, I have been courted by grifters. I have always been a disappointment to them. I look like an easy mark. I don’t pretend that I can’t get played — everyone can get played.

The difference is I study the dynamics of the grifter-pigeon relationship while others don’t.

Grifters are interesting. As Donald Trump said, they are smooth. Cute and cuddly with charm. They remember your name. They have a very good memory for names, faces, and events. They are warm. Some are endearing and sympathetic.

And they often have tragedy or some other trauma and act wounded. There is always some sort of scam going on, usually a combination of a greed scam (show your love by believing in me — and invest in my dreams) and pity scam (save me from myself because I had a bad childhood) where, if you are foolish enough to get on the hamster wheel, will suck you into a vortex of saviour and social worker wasting your resources on the con artist instead of yourself.

It is a bad deal.

Grifters always see themselves as being the most cunning person around. They leverage their bad childhoods into collateral to be used to gain things. They think they are entitled and owed something — that’s the fuel that makes them seething, petty, spiteful, and vindictive.

They always look chipper and upbeat. They seem polite until you cross them, then they blame you and won’t let go of a grudge. There is always a scam, a mask, a script, and an angle.

They are very snazzy dressers. Nothing but the best for them. Clothes are props, but so are people. They are to be paraded out to reassure people that they are very nice people who care and can be trusted.

They are always apologetic. They always have an entourage clean up their messes. They bank favours and pull strings. They know all the gossip and can exploit people with ease.

They use people as pawns, and they can size you up. They can secretly maneuver people on their game boards. They can play chess or pool with ease, and there is usually some little smirk on their face as if they are in on some private little joke.

They will often seemingly bring other people into their confidence — and those are the dupes and pigeons they exploit by turning them into faithful lackeys. People feel honoured to know the “real” person — and they think they are in on the ride, not being taken for it.

Nothing ever gets done with them, however. They are big talkers and dreamers, but they never actually deliver — or plan to deliver. They just want to get things and coast.

When they are young, they get away with a lot — a baby face will get you a lot of goodwill. People are protective of grifters who know how to play the part. You cannot save them: that’s all part of the act. They will give you sad doe eyes pretending to submit when things go awry.

Right now, we are in an Age of Propaganda, and that means we seek grifters by default. This penchant for taking style over substance has damage the Left’s brand and severely so. Urbane sophisticate is not going to prove you superior to the Right. The other side has political mastery — and they brawl, not bawl.

The biggest mistake women in Canada made was allowing the privileged white boy to call himself a feminist without actual cred. You want a feminist, get the angry woman who launches her campaign at the battered women’s shelter and demands to know why we have concentration camps for abused women.

But that’s real. It’s reality, truth, and uncomfortable. It is not polished. It’s raw. It’s not snootily having some delusion that we are enlightened or progressive.

Once we allowed a non-feminist to ride on the coattails of feminism, once he was exposed as a poseur, he didn’t just damaged his own brand or just his party’s brand, but the feminist brand. If your psychographic is incapable of knowing who is real and who is fake, you lose face.

You don’t just desperately try to take anyone who’ll have you in order to exploit you. You cannot settle for anything or anyone.

There are too many brutes in suits exploiting people who never study their ways or ask hard questions. Dreams for the future cannot come true unless you face the nightmare of reality. The path of utopia never came following grifters or buying their hype, and the sooner that truth is grasp, the more likely a better world can be built.

But it all depends on whether people truly want freedom — or merely wish to pretend that they do…

Doing the math: Why Ontario students need to stop whining about the lack of art and wonder why they are so arithmophobic.

I am taking a short course from Oxford University at the moment called Learning to Look at the Visual. It is an extremely good course that goes over the basics of art — and reminds me how many mathematicians were also very capable artists. They used the Golden Ratio and their works endure to this day, centuries after they breathed their last.

But we have the CBC enabling the temper tantrums of students who are avoiding the STEM subjects and not getting enough math they need to be capable musicians, writers, and artists.

Screen Shot 2019-05-15 at 7.08.22 PM.png

This has nothing to do with students wanting arts: this is their hack of avoiding the STEM subjects in order to beef up their marks.

You don’t have arts, take math. It is as simple as that. There are private and group lessons and no shortage of very good artists and musicians who can tutor you if you have a genuine talent. Many artists are autodidacts, meaning they are self-taught. Pinterest and YouTube have countless lessons free online, meaning many programs have become obsolete. There are Meet-Ups and free lessons at libraries and the like.

If you are determined to take those kinds of lessons, we have no shortage of venues for you.

That’s not the issue. The issue is that mathphobes and sciencephobes are now in meltdown mode because they can’t game a system to bloat their marks.

I am an artist, and one who uses both the math and the science in my work. I am an author, and I also use math and science there, too. When I taught metalworking at Niagara College, I insisted on teaching in a science lab because I used the same tools, equipment, chemicals, and processes as did professors teaching science. The science professors were having fits because of it, but it was their limited imagination that was the problem, not mine.

The problem is we have an artificially constructed line in the sand where STEM is separated from the Humanities, which is bullshit. We have an educational system that allows people to run and hide from subjects that will require them to work hard and not get an inflated mark to delude their egos.

The educational system is in need of an overhaul to do away with the rigs that enable dangerous delusions that one can bypass the hard work and still be considered educated and smart. Sometimes, you have the lowest mark in the class, and fuck your wallowing and self-esteem issues. Get over yourself. It isn’t about your raging ego. Hit the books and study, study, study.

Fail, fail, fail, until you achieve mastery. Fuck your smartphone and your tacky Instagram page.

The basis of logic is math. The basis of reality is science. We don’t teach it enough — math, music, and literature is merely applied math and science. They are not separate.

If it were up to me, math and logic would be the backbone of every single subject in school. There would be no “electives”. There would be math and logic.

I am an author and artist who uses math, logic, and science in my work; somehow, I always write and make art, and with my theremin, I do music, too.

So you don’t have the electives you want. Life is hard. Deal with it. Take the plunge with a really challenging subject that is completely out of your comfort zone. I did when I was in high school, and I skipped grades. That’s how I managed to find all of the things I never knew I was good at and loved that are still with me to this day…

An interesting article about Canadian law in Showbiz411

This article is definitely worth a read. Roger Friedman has this to say about it:

These proceedings suggest a level of dishonesty in the Canadian judicial system that resembles a third world country. This proceeding has been marked by judges bending the law to suit their own purposes, judges obstructing justice, prosecutorial misconduct, and corrupt police destroying evidence. It reads like a real world “The Firm” by John Grisham.

That hits the nail on the head.

Friedman also seems surprised that our braindead journalists have missed it:

Right now, I’m not identifying the case, which has gone on for some time under the noses of the Canadian press. It’s actually outrageous.

This kind of rigging goes on everyday in Canada, and everyday, journalists ignore the rot as no one else is willing to call it out and make changes. Worse, you have trolls extolling the fake virtues of a dysfunctional and rigged legal system. Canada the Myth is not Canada the Reality. You have people like me who try to build things of substance, but when everything is just window-dressing, no one wants the substance to draw attention to the window-dressing.

As I said, this article is worth taking the time to read and process. People like me will ponder it, but I doubt most other people will do anything else but dismiss it and go back to sticking their heads up their asses…

Memo to Vox: You lack basic knowledge to try to explain things to people.

Vox is pure garbage, and this article is just another piece of trash for the rubbish pile.

Vox isn’t an actual news outlet: it babbles about the Big Bang Theory and Game of Thrones as if they were newsworthy and significant.

Vox doesn’t get reality, particularly the US trade war against China. It cannot explain something obvious because it has no clue and no means to do so.

There is nothing loopy about the US going after China. China has been busy buying up natural resources around the world. It is the World’s Factory. It buys other nations’ debt. It is aiming for an economic monopoly, and has been doing so unchecked for a very long time.

The US is preventing that dominance, and is working on weakening China, which isn’t as hard as it sounds. The US gets the rigs of capitalism. China gets a lot of things, but not enough to beat the US at this game. They may bluster, but they are in a far weaker position than they should be. The US can make serious damage to them economically and politically. Trump doesn’t think like a typical American, making him a very hard mark to read.

And he is willing to fight as far as it can go. Canada is going to get royally screwed. This is a country that banked on being a whisperer of sorts to the US, and a backdoor way of diplomacy with them, but then Trump accused Canada of being smooth, and cut off that path. Trump brought his North American neighbours to heel. For all of Canada’s tantrums and chest-thumping how they were going to “buy Canadian”, it was all talk because Canada doesn’t have very much native products to purchase.

Now that the small potatoes are out of the way, the big job is up ahead. In this game of Go, Trump struck first with a single arrest in Canada. China hit hard at Canada, giving Trump a blueprint into how to break them to specifications.

Project Syndicate is also puking knee-slapping Leftist propaganda, trying to pretend there is no economic growth in the US, but there is and it’s real. Unemployment is low. Everything has been methodical and precise. The US usually doesn’t have someone in the White House who gets the game, and Trump gets it. The Left are jealous and are stewing because vote-shaming doesn’t work. It’s the reason they are blind to what has been swirling over the last two years. The epic magic act is about to begin and they are off the rails thanks to their own hubris.

There is no mystery here, and certainly no madness. The game is beyond what Vox can comprehend, and it is not a place to look for actual news, anyway…

Canadian journalists begged for fascism...they are just about to get it. Be careful what you beg for, suckers.

When you have lazy trolls pretend to be journalists, they can’t actually pull it off, and like other sheltered brats, they went to Daddy Government to give them free money.

Not only will they not see much more than pennies, they opened the door to fascist regime tactics.

We are now getting an Approved Media List.

We have a regime with no empirical data or experience decreeing what will be considered approved.

This is very bad:

Federal agencies will publish an A-list of newspapers and websites deemed reliable under a multi-million dollar subsidy program, the Department of Finance yesterday told the Senate national finance committee. Subsidies to federally-approved news media invite government meddling in a free press, cautioned one senator.

This is worse:

An unnamed cabinet-appointed group will decide which media qualify for subsidies. “The government will decide whether or not to change certain criteria,” said Maude Lavoie, Finance Canada director general of business tax programs.

And this is just plain stupid:

“I’m worried here you have criteria, you’ll have to jump those; selection committees appointed by the government – we’re intruding on the freedom of the press,” said Andreychuk. “It may not be our intention; it’s the survival of newspapers. But we’re going to be creating opportunities for others to come in, and we may not be really helping those we intended to in the first place.”

…“we all want to encourage the survival of the press, whether it’s in a small town or elsewhere, but if we start down this road, with these criteria, with government setting that criteria and interpreting that criteria, I think we’re on the wrong road,” said Andreychuk.

Journalism didn’t survive: it was always an illusion. It was never empirical or serious. What we always had was an ideal, not the real thing.

We should be smart enough and brave enough to have an alternative to journalism. This version obviously has flaws too big to be functional. It was always based on a model where common people did not have access to a broad audience. When they did, all of the glaring holes and flaws in journalism stood out and people lost faith in that institution.

The federal Liberals are horrid. They are scam artists, not visionaries, innovators, or thinkers. It is not as if we have a party that actually has vision and an ability to take risks. Bribe, break, and control seems to be the only game the federal regime knows how to play, and now that they have their mitts on a dead profession, we will see just how manipulative they can be with an inert press that should have made big changes when they still had the chance…

Globe and Mail babbles about recycling...misses glaring point. Recycling is a Middle Class distraction. Just go to the commercial dump.

As our ditzy Prime Minister is desperately trying to deflect attention from his own himbosity by offering the super-rich Vatican Canadian lumber and steel that would be better used to build our destitute shelters, he also wants to play propagandist to scare the Middle Class into voting for him by declaring a “climate emergency.”

This is pure bullshit. If there was such a thing, there are many simple solutions that could have been employed, but haven’t because Canada is a lawless country that runs on the politics of fear and virtue-signalling.

But instead of exposing the manipulations, the dregs left of Canadian journalism prefer to be government mouthpieces.

Look at the babble-fest of the Globe and Mail that offer a very long and rambling bullshit story.

It is all about the problems facing recycling because China decided not to play make pretend anymore.

Recycling, for the most part, is a sham. It always has been. This is how governments play kindergarten teacher to the middle class to get them to, in essence, reenact doing something stupid while spinning it as productive as pasting macaroni on to cardboard and then calling wasting food an art lesson.

Recycling is pasting macaroni on cardboard.

While the obedient and credulous Middle Class spend hours separating garbage and then morally masturbating to their fake friends about it, businesses throw all of their trash in one big heap at the commercial dump.

I know because I have had to throw out a lot things, rented a big truck, and was told that I had to discard it at the commercial end of the dump.

And then saw the building with all the garbage just stacked in a single pile with no recycling equivalent there. I had a lot of glass that could have been easily recycled, but was told to throw all of it in that huge pile.

Think about how much garbage businesses throw out in comparison to the residential, and then tell me about recycling.

And nowhere in this incessant rambling and irrelevant fact-puking does the Globe look at the obvious. The entire article is rubbish because of their glaring confirmation bias.

It is not the only place where they seriously fuck up. Even the usually oblivious CBC gets that Canada allows too much superfluous and non-biodegradable packaging to clog up our dumps. All the government has to do is make excessive plastic and packaging illegal. If the Liberal government actually believed in the line they are feeding people, they would have already done so.

Because the environmental monster tales are just for show.

We have garbage because we don’t actually have a government that puts a stop to it.

The Globe thinks cramming charts and graphs means they are serious journalists. No, you don’t question your government on basic things, so why would you think that?

If two magicians see the obvious, then let’s let magicians inform the public — not the pretentious morons at the Globe and Mail who are too stupid to see that the federal Grits gave millions of dollars to a price-fixing grocery chain that gets free swag — and the epicentre of the kinds of environmental waste that clogs our dumps in the first place…

Toronto Star gets everything wrong...yet again.

The Toronto Star doesn’t get anything right. There is a silly little column about political pantywaist Sam Oosterhoff, and it is worth tearing apart because of its sheer ignorance to reality:

I am putting his name forward to be the first Canadian male anti-abortion politician to gestate a baby, the minute science effectively figures out how to do it. Apparently for a male to have a fertilized egg planted inside of his body and to gestate it until it’s ready for birth is life-threatening. Oh no!

This is a childish argument that completely ignores reality. Why are you pretending that men don’t have vulnerabilities when it comes to reproductive rights? They don’t need to get pregnant: they have sperm, and that’s good enough to put their own reproductive rights on the table.

Feminism keeps doing the same things and employing the same strategies, which is the reason why women’s rights are always precarious and never entrenched. You can’t keep using defensive strategies when your opponents keep using offensive ones. You have to learn to link their fortunes with yours: whatever happens to you will happen to them. You take away the rigs of barriers: they want women to lose their reproductive rights, then so do those who call for it. We take away men’s rights to choose when they can reproduce, if they can, with whom, how many times, and where.

If pregnant women are being framed as “host bodies”, frame men as “sperm gifters.” They gave away their sperm, they have no claim to it.

What you give to one, you must give to the other. You don’t make hypothetical arguments. You don’t justify yourself or allow yourself to be put on the table. You don’t fight to keep your rights — you go after the other side’s rights. Anything else is regression. This is a new war; ergo you use new strategies to ensure the other side knows that if they throw a grenade at you, you are chaining yourself to them first, meaning the explosion will hit them just as hard.

But women have this unnatural habit of justifying themselves to men and explaining and arguing. I once had a sexist male relative who kept trying to break me in for as long as I could remember. I could be dressed to the nines, and he’d say, “You have a pimple,” to which I replied, “And you have a huge glaring bald spot where hair used to be.” He lost the battle and then lost the war. You want to point out a real or perceived flaw on me, I upped the ante and struck where it hurt the most. Asshole, you don’t have the monopoly.

If it is all about reproduction, then start at the very beginning. If we are using biblical arguments about how God made man first, then his sperm is fair game. It’s God’s will and all that jazz. If women cannot be trusted, then neither can men.

When those misogynists are too busy fighting for the survival of their own rights, they have no time to meddle in other people’s rights. Feminists would be wise to throw away their old playbooks. They are obviously flawed. Bridging rights and entrenching that bridging puts the manipulators on notice that there are going to be heavy and painful consequences for their scamming — and anti-choice is a scam — it is a form of propaganda that uses fear-mongering to keep women in place so they do not succeed more than men. It creates a false pecking order and to indulge it is an admission that the pecking order is real and just.

And it is neither. Go after Oosterhoff’s reproductive rights. He is sheltered and insulated from reality and a nice big cold bucket of reality water would keep the little twerp and his ilk in their place.

The Toronto Star has no clue about reality, either. They puke 60s bullshit in a 2019 world. It’s no better and offers no solutions to how to create a real and lasting utopia…
