Evidence in the Stupidity of Saying ‘The Liberal Media’

Posted on by 0 comment

When people say ‘the liberal media’, especially in Canada and the US, it truly makes me want to puke.

Here’s a classic headline from the oil-funded, American-owned National Post:

Our energy industry is in crisis, but Trudeau is too busy doing damage control over SNC-Lavalin to act

Ummm … what?

You mean the $4.5 billion and counting ‘investment’ (and overpayment) in a pipeline that no one wants for tar to be glugged through the mountains and into the sea doesn’t constitute action to support an industry that should be ailing / failing?

There IS a reason why Alberta crude price is so low.

NO ONE WANTS IT.

That’s because the entire world is racing ahead to void themselves of carbon-producing industries like internal combustion engines and coal-fired energy. Most of the EU countries are on target to meet Paris Accord standards.

People are putting an end to wasteful single-use plastics and pesticides based on oil derivatives are being shown to be deadlier than ever.

We NEED to move on.

And where’s Canada?

Edging on dead last because we’re trying to appease coal trolls with their desire to keep us firmly entrenched in the First Industrial Revolution.

Sorry folks.

This is complete and utter bullshit.

Liberal media, my ass.

The Vaccine Debate Continues …

Posted on by 0 comment

Are people that choose organic troglodytes? Are people that choose sunshine over Vitamin D ‘flat earthers’? What about people that choose electric cars over gas? Are they intentionally trying to wreck Alberta’s economy?

There is nothing more illogical than a parent trying to protect their child. On both sides of the argument.

I admire this person for coming forward with his doubts. I share many of them.

BUT for the record, I believe in the science behind vaccinations. Along with clean water, modern advances in most forms of medicine and even better food safety standards, we’re all able to live more productive, disease-free lives.

That’s the ‘no brainer’ part of all of this.

The challenge? I simply don’t buy into the disgusting profits that are being made from the mandatory programs.

Billions are being made at taxpayer expense without any sense of accountability or transparency. This is wrong.

As a family, we resolved to allow some of the ‘required’ vaccinations for our child on a prolonged schedule so we weren’t doing them all at once. We stuck to the original schedule laid in the early 1980s that required approximately 12 vaccinations as opposed to the near-40 vaccinations required today.

How do you get someone like me to be more onside with vaccinations?

I’d like to see an honest discussion about the ingredients and profits being made by pharmaceutical companies at the same time we pivot away from vilifying people that simply want to protect their children. I’d like to see more support for OBJECTIVE research into additives like aluminum, mercury, glyphosate and other preservatives / adjuvants that we wouldn’t dare put into any other food products for health reasons, so why put them in vaccines? I’d like a strong, reliable database of side effects and complaints concerning vaccinations so that we can make them better and remove ALL doubts about their efficacy. Finally, I’d like to know what doctors and the medical gain from the funds that are pumped into supporting vaccines.

Please don’t assault, bully or vilify me. It’s the worst possible way to bring this whole thing forward.

We Should Stop Paying For Over-Budget Infrastructure Projects

Posted on by 0 comment

From The Untouchables …

ln Roman times, when a fellow tried to bribe a public official, they would cut off his nose, sew him in a bag with a wild animal, and throw that bag in the river. You tell your master that we must agree to…disagree!

As barbaric as they seem, we should revisit these ‘guidelines’ set out so long ago because here’s what currently happens:

  • An ‘opportunity’ comes up (after heavy lobbying by industry).
  • Governments agree to spend public money.
  • Budgets will be strictly adhered to.
  • They aren’t.
  • Budgets explode in size and degree of complication.
  • Public gets rammed between a rock and a hard place.
  • Private contractors literally steal from the public purse.
  • Repeat.

This is how it’s done over and over and over again.

The latest story is from Ottawa and their public transit project, where the cost of Light Rail Transit (LRT) system has taken a serious turn for the worse, costing Canada’s capital another billion … or so.

London, Ontario has also recently committed to a massive bus transit overhaul using tech and services based on century-old thinking, again at the behest of special interest groups. Despite reassurances, this project will cost the city dearly, both financially and in terms of social and economic attractiveness.

Any other city facing these kind of choices should think again and give in to the gut response from their taxpayers.

My question is: with all of the lawyers in the world protecting clients, how come there are NONE out there that seek to write agreements with winning contractors to ensure that (a) governments don’t bite off more than they can chew and (b) commitments are non-existent until cost over-run protections can be put in place?

And why is there no legislated transparency with contracts? To hell with proprietary information and shareholder protections.

If you want to do business with the government, you have to be clear, concrete and transparent from the get go. And be prepared to have contracts put out to tender again if you screw so badly as to make it look like a 3-year old could run things better.

I’m sick of it. Shuffling billions from many to a few is a recipe for disaster!!  This is the ‘dark money’ that’s robbing the public of billions and billions, day in, day out.

It must stop.

SNC: The Story Behind the Story

Posted on by 0 comment

True corruption.

It’s the high cost of doing business with questionable ‘allies’, including corporate citizens that claim they’re only doing something because if they don’t, someone else will.

Rabble.ca comes and goes in terms of quality, but this is easily one of the most definitive and accurate descriptions of the deep roots of military and industrial corruption we’ve got going in Canada and elsewhere.

When hundreds of billions of Canadian taxpayer dollars are pissed down the drain every year on ships we don’t need (or that go to rust in abandoned harbours), planes we can’t fly or military that’s not necessary if we stop kicking sand in everyone’s face, it makes me mad.

This money could be spent on REAL issues like water for Canada’s First Nations, democratic reforms, free education and vastly improved infrastructure to suit our climate, but we’d much prefer to piss it away for the real criminals around the globe.

So, scream all you want about SNC-Lavalin and other companies profiteering from our fear of nothing or belief that ‘mega-projects’ are the only way to go, but what we really need to do is FIRE THEM ALL.

What’s evolved with the SNC-Lavalin issue is a parade of amateur mistakes. They should have backed away from a corrupt company the second they had the chance. Other governments should too.

And for the record: I would still prefer the Libs running the show, possibly licking their wounds a little, as opposed to Andy Scheer’s Neon Nazis and another 10 years of dark days for Canada.

Andrew Scheer and his Neon Nazis

Posted on by 0 comment

Ugh.

Canadian politics have become utterly and shamefully disgusting.

I will most certainly vote Green in the next election.

Andrew Scheer and his Neon Nazis running up Parliament Hill with their antiquated, entitled, white racist bullshit make me want to puke. I’d sooner vote for a baby-killer than put an ‘X’ beside Andrew Scheer or one of his Conservatives.

How could this person be any more backwards? Supporting dirty tar projects for billionaire non-Canadian oil companies that are buying the 2019 election. No climate change plan. Willful ignorance of the changes we have to make if we’re going to save this planet.

Unfortunately, Justin Trudeau has gone from amateur politician with a glint of hope to a complete trainwreck. His bailing out of the pipeline (clearly and willfully unnoticed by the likes of Scheer and his Angry WASPs), treatment of the SNC file, financial incompetence, crippling of Canadian democracy because of his arrogance and a dozen other issues have turned me off the Liberals permanently.

And don’t even get me started on the Never Deliver Progress (NDP) party. Special interest groups of a different kind (unions) consistently push them in the wrong direction (ie. the past).

I’m done. The Neon Nazis will probably win the 2019 election because voters are so easily manipulated, but I just don’t care anymore. That makes me sad, but clearly all of those who pretend to have Canada’s best interests at heart are working for someone else.
