Doug Ford: Foreshadowing Andrew Scheer Conservatives

Want to know what’s coming down the pipe if Andrew Scheer gets his grubby mitts on the Prime Minister’s Office?

How about those labels that no one likes, using taxpayer funds to promote stupidity about climate change across the province of Ontario?

Picture that on a national scale.

Or this latest story about how Doug Ford was seen at the opening of a private American Catholic school in Niagara.

It’s sickening. What an abhorrent waste of taxpayer funds and government services.

My kid’s classes are going to peak to as high as 40 students per room, but Doug Ford could care less.

Let’s hope the ‘buck a beer’ crowd start to understand that the Conservatives – federal or provincial – don’t give a shit about them and just want to steal their vote.

Canada’s Political Colour Spectrum, Updated

The writ has been dropped.

Canada’s political colour spectrum remains. I dove in deep more than 10 years ago (yikes!) when I assessed the apparent influence that each party’s colour motif has on their platform.

Here’s a quick reminder:

  • Red: anger. MY anger. I’m pissed with the Liberals for having dropped electoral reform. Led by old-money special interest groups.
  • Blue: male misogyny and domination over others. Bullying. Led by Christian right special interest groups and purveyors of subtle racist themes / memes.
  • Orange: all I can think of carnival clowns. Special interest groups are unions and the Conservatives (remember how they came calling when Harper needed to topple the Liberals in 2004?).
  • Green: pond scum. Special interest groups now seem to include The Conservatives, The Anglican Church (a whisper of difference/dogma/hubris exists between this school of thought and Catholics), anti-choice religion, Jesus Christ, high-paid political consultants, the mining industry and the Oil Patch or Canadian Association of Petroleum Producers.

On the last note, as we head into the election, I was all primed and excited about voting Green.

Oops … Elizabeth May opened her mouth and I stepped back from the abyss.

For a while, I was calling for Justin Trudeau to step aside because of the baggage he now carries on behalf of Quebec (aka SNC Lavalin).

Now, it’s Elizabeth May who may need to reconsider her role following her array of gaffs in the build-up to the election of 2019.

My prediction? My vote won’t matter. That said, the terrible choice of leaders that we have to choose from are still FAR better than what’s on offer around the world, but I will still try to do what I can to prevent Canada from re-entering the Stephen Harper dark days.

More Strange Activity At Epstein Compound

Posted on by 0 comment

Weeks ago, Jeffrey Epstein apparently ‘committed suicide’. The media ate it up and rolled it out for us to digest in quick, consumable tidbits.

But the mystery about Epstein and his famous island continue.

This site captures a number of pictures using drone cameras cruising over the island. One shot even has someone in it who suspiciously looks like Epstein himself!

This whole Epstein-pervert-pedaphile-1%er thing didn’t end well and there are still many questions to answer for.

For instance, why are folks with MIT burying the massive array of donations that Epstein made to the institution? Obviously, they don’t want to have anything to do with a convicted felon, but why did they keep accepting his money?

Also, what should we make of the lead investigator on the Epstein case dying suddenly this past June, shortly before Epstein also got taken out of the picture?

Or, the strange disappearance of Epstein associate Jean-Luc Brunel, someone that could corroborate the details of the accusations against Epstein and the world of 1%ers that are potentially involved with the pedaphile island, plane rides and other unspeakable acts.

Perhaps the case will move forward with the accuser, Virginia Roberts Giuffre, a woman who was traded around like a hockey card at a sports convention. Shortly after Epstein’s death, more than 2,000 pages of testimony and evidence were released for public viewing. They identify hundreds of accused elites, along with details of events and occasions where child rape occurred.

Will there be justice in all of this? No, probably not.

Alberta Is Now Absurta

Posted on by 0 comment

Warning: when Ford and Kenney lie and manipulate the governments they are running (ruining?), why should we expect anything different from Andrew Scheer?

Here’s a simple example.

Jason Kenney and his henchmen are taking the ‘public’ out of ‘public education’.

To be honest, I actually found this story about Alberta’s government receiving directives to remove the word ‘public’ from anything related to a range of school boards, but Press Progress has given us a proper update on the situation.

Here’s the original document. How long will this ‘public’ document be ‘public’?

Again, will a Scheer Conservative government do the same thing and bring us back to the incredibly dark days of Stephen Harper?

Will anti-choice, anti-homosexual, anti-science dogma suddenly appear from back-benchers if Scheer is elected?

We Should All Spend $442 On Facebook Targeting Climate Deniers

Posted on by 0 comment

Poor Elections Canada. Making dumb decisions dumber.

People and organizations tell the truth. What do they have to do? They have to register with Elections Canada as a political interest group and expose themselves to the risk of being audited or bullied by government organizations.

This means any organization expressing views contrary to political bull shit will be at risk of being publicly shamed by our government.

Meanwhile, deniers will be allowed to lie and manipulate the truth. Some even push new limits with respect to libel or even threats of assault or murder of specific candidates. Our Prime Minister is not even immune to these kind of threats.

Or ‘think tanks’ that are well-funded by third-parties like the Koch Brothers and others – example: the Fraser Institute – get to simply coast by spreading lies and nonsense about government programs their ‘investors’ and supporters don’t agree with. To make it worse, even the CBC continues to refer to these organizations as legitimate sources of information, despite the fact that they’re not audited or are not transparent about their source of funds or influence.

So where does that leave average Canadians that want a progressive, thoughtful future for not just Canada, but the rest of the world?

F’ed. We are f’ed. If this is the crap we have coming down the pipe, I can’t even begin to imagine the slew of tricks these people will be pulling out of their hats to bring down the Liberals and other progressive voices in Canada.

What’s the solution? We all commit to spending a minimum amount of money on Facebook, Twitter and others social media channels promoting education and targeting knuckle-dragging deniers.

Just don’t spend more than $442 + HST. That’ll push you beyond the magic $500 level. Like that means anything to billionaire bandits like the Kochs.
