Endorsement of Jagmeet Singh for the Federal NDP Leadership

I commented on Matthew Green's latest video. He'll probably delete it as soon as he sees it.

I said,

"Instead of trying to turn Canada into another Venezuela, why don't you form a Canadian socialist migrant caravan and march down there? I'm sure you and Jagmit will be able to fix things in no time. All they need is "real socialism." Right?"

Let me know if my comment is still there.

The Terrible Truth About Birthright Citizenship

John Taylor Gatto (1935-2018)

I read his book, "The Underground History of American Education," about ten years ago. It was a real page-turner. It was then that I REALLY realized that calling public schools, "child prisons" was not an exaggeration.

To this day I cringe when I see adult voters demand MORE government involvement in raising their kids, including "free" universal daycare. It's like watching someone eat glass.

I don't think it would be a stretch to imagine that if the government "education" system were to get hold of children the instant they emerged from the womb they would never learn to walk and talk. (With the insanity coming out of left field these days, it wouldn't even be that much of a stretch to imagine that the faster learners were making the other students "feel bad," and that therefore, they should be held back. To hell with the "white supremacist" meritocracy. Let's all just crawl and grunt. A true socialist utopia.)

My suspicion of public ed grew before I had much familiarity with Gatto, as my own kids served out their mandatory sentences in that system.

One thing I noticed was how tired they always looked when they got home with those zombie eyes. These were the same kids I had watched learn to walk, run, jump, and talk, and rip their fingers across a computer keyboard faster than I. All without a single hour of government instruction. (To them, keyboarding was just the "next level" in the game of learning.) Up until JK, they had already learned series of highly complex skills. And they had done so joyfully, which lead me to believe that the desire to learn is as natural as the desire to breathe.

After exposing them to the public school prisons for a few years and that joy in learning had been almost completely extinguished. Only the strongest survive. (Maybe that's the actual reason I got the strap almost every year and never won a "Citizenship Ward.")

I also remember the time when my son was in grade 8. I asked him what he was taking in science. I expected him to tell me about basic stuff, like precipitation, evaporation, and sublimation.

When he answered, "global warming" I almost blew a gasket. Those slimy Liberals were using their power over their young captive's minds to push political propaganda. They were cultivating little Liberals. Around the same time, I had a similar experience with my daughter. We were in the car and Al Gore's name was mentioned on the radio. I asked her if she'd ever heard of him. "Yes, we saw his movie in school."

OMFG! Public money was being used to enrich that climate shyster Al Gore.

It's time to turf this destructive notion that Government Inc. ought to play a key role in the business of education. Phase it out.

The Underground History Of American Education

Phony "education."

Now that I am no longer "working," (Like driving a cab could ever be considered a serious form of work,) I spend most of my time learning.

Learning is something you choose to do. No one can just give it to you.

I first realized this when I was a student at Mohawk College. (1981-83) I noticed many of my classmates complaining about some of the teachers. Those teachers could not teach.

And they were right.

Some of the teachers could barely speak English. Of course, they couldn't teach. I knew even then that their presence, and their salaries, depended more upon politics than economics.

But I decided I would not let that stop me. So I stopped attending the classes of the politically selected teachers, and instead, started reading the textbooks and doing the exercises.

It worked!

Instead of being confused by faltering attempts, in broken Engish, to explain subjects like physics and organic chemistry, I decided I would learn the shit on my own. (Diversity ISN'T our strength.)

It wasn't easy. Some of the texts were almost as fucked up as the teachers. But by using my own brain, I managed to figure things out and did quite well on the exams.

There is an old western saying, "You can lead a horse to water, but you can't make him drink."

And that is one reason why I am not impressed with the anti-Ford commie zealots who are currently freaking out over his cutbacks to the public indoctrination system.

Especially today, with cheap computers and internet connections, people don't need commie politicians funneling their money through phony government programs to get an education.

That old, anti-libertarian argument, that without "government-run schools," poor people could not get an education, has been revealed to be complete bullshit, on a par with the notion that Justin Trudeau can control the climate.

Ford should initiate MORE CUTS to the phony "Higher Education" cartel.

Assault on the West

News from the Southern Front

"The strategy is to collapse the financial system. The tactic is chaos. If a crisis does not exist, create one. The more chaos the better. The solution is always couched in empathetic words like “fair,” “equal,” “humane” and “just.”" <Source>

"Joseph Stalin reacted extremely slowly to the invasion of his country by German forces in 1940. Indeed, not only did he react slowly, but he also ignored warnings that the Germans planned to attack his country. Stalin's response to the German invasion has perplexed historians for many years." <Source>

Tucker asks Jorge Ramos: "How many of these people are you taking in to your own home, and are supporting once they get to the United States?"

Watch how Horgey Boy answers. He refuses to provide a direct answer, he does the usual pivot and squirm moral flatulation dance so typical of liberals, but in the end his answer is inescapable, none.

How to spot a liberal? A liberal is someone who would give a refugee the shirt off of someone else's back.

What do you think? Is Horgey Boy a liberal?

No Welfare for Immigrants.

Good News!

On the "Good News" front, I finally found a "Proud Liberal" who claims he would "gladly" pay more money to save the Basic Income welfare program to demonstrate his "compassion."

I replied,

"At last! I found one. A "Proud Liberal" who would "gladly" pay a little extra in the name of "compassion!" You'll be happy to know that YOU can save BI without spending a dime of other people's money. And it will only cost YOU $1.40 per month."

How much you wanna bet that if you asked "Proud Liberal" how many poor people he is personally supporting his answer would sound exactly the same as Horgey Boy's answer?

Questions about Spanish Supremacy

I have some questions, just off the top of my head. As we all know, Canada and the U.S. have a lot of Indian reservations.

The question germinated in my mind as I observed, in particular, all of the controversy surrounding Hispanic (as in, a Spanish-speaking person living in the US, especially one of Latin American descent) immigration to the U.S.

It seems to me that Spain and Portugal, just like Britain and France, "stole" the land they now live on, from indigenous peoples. Stuff I learned about Pizzaro and Cortez in public school, grade five or six, and what they did to the indigenous people's of South America and Mexico used to make me sick to my stomach.

Yet, I hear absolutely nothing about *Hispanic Supremacy*. Even more bizarrely, the progeny of the villainous conquerers of Peru and Mexico who stole their countries from the Incas and the Aztecs, are often touted as heroes by the left as they come to increasingly occupy the lands "stolen" by the British and French(!)

I am confident enough to say that the reason why so many treaties with natives were broken by northern whites was due, in part, to the fact that treaties had been made in the first place. And like all agreements made with any government in the history of the planet, those treaties (promises) were eventually broken to some degree.

Which finally brings me to my questions.

1 - Did the Spanish invaders make treaties with the indigenous people of the lands they occupied and....

2 - Are there any Indian reservations in Mexico or places further south?

If you know the answers to these questions, please respond in the comment section below.

In the meantime, you might want to acquaint yourself with another one of many stories of lands stolen by militarily superior ethnic groups.


In case no one took on my challenge, I used a non-google search engine to find my own answers. Yes, there are Indian reservations in South America.

Twitter, Taxis, and Uber

After using Twitter for about three years now, I have mixed feelings about the platform. I don't like the way they flex their economic muscles to interfere with the flow of information and opinion through shadow banning, the dishonest "mute" feature, and outright banning of certain, mostly conservative and libertarian, points of view.

But I still use it.

First of all, they can go ahead and censor all of the people I like. That won't stop me from finding out what I want to know. They can ban Alex Jones, but so far, I can still visit his website or his BitChute channel.

So, no matter how intellectually insulting it may be to me that the Twitter gods have to taken it upon themselves to decide for me the type of information and opinion I shall be permitted to consume, it has had zero impact. Zero.

But even worse, from my point of view, would be if they banned the people I have nothing but contempt for. That would be those on the left, like the communists and those who hate the entire Western model of civilization. (Freedom, equal rights, property rights, the presumption of innocence, freedom of speech.) In other words, just about everyone in the mainstream media, politics, and academia.

If the Twitter gods decided to cut me off from seeing what they are saying, it would be a greater insult than the banning of Alex Jones. Mathew Green, John Tory, Desmond Cole, Andray Domise, Chris Schaeffer (Uber,) Uber and a few others already understand this. They have already gone ahead and blocked me from seeing their stuff, obviously because they don't want anyone else to see my replies. It gives new meaning to the term, "self-censorship."

But I am distracting myself.

What I wanted to talk about is my newly found use for Twitter.

As you may know, Twitter only gives you 280 characters with which to express yourself. I am almost never able to express myself under that limit. One thing it has motivated me to do is to re-read and edit my Tweets, with the aim of distilling my main point. So I scan for unnecessary phrases, replace words like "and" with "&" and so on.

Hence my newly hatched theory that, for me at least, Twitter can be seen as a valuable writing aid. My desire is to deliver my message in as short and concise a manner possible, and I know some people are laughing at this, but I don't believe in wasting time or resources under any circumstances.

So, this morning I came across a Tweet that was blaming the tragic death of an Uber passenger on the lack of taxi driver training.

The Tweeter, and the author of the Globe and Mail article have it totally wrong.

Predicting outcomes is easier than math if you know where to look. I warned people about this ten years ago. This had nothing to do with some bogus "taxi driver training program."

From the report,

"After a few minutes, the driver’s phone fell off his dashboard. He was using the phone’s GPS to navigate, so he pulled over."

Enough said.

This tweet was from Julia.

"So important to know what you are getting yourself into with #Uber. Toronto raised my friend. Then it failed him /via @globeandmail"

Toronto raised my friend. Then it failed him


These were my 280 character replies.

New conversation

Replying to @julia29taylor @OttawaTaxiFleet @globeandmail

Let's identify the real problem. The use of MDT's (Mobile Data Terminals) and other distractive technologies caused this tragedy. I predicted it ten years ago. - Compounded by myopic supply management policies leading to seriously reduced incomes, therefore high driver turnover.

Compounded further by an increasingly schlerotic labour market caused by increasingly intrusive govt. intrusions, including mandatory min. wages (cab drivers, Uber and non-exempt, are not covered,) as well as federal importation of an endless supply of new, inexperienced cabbies.

My final comment, reduced to less than 280 characters,

Almost no one who feels competent to comment on the issue of safety in taxi cabs has a clue about the real contributory factors.

By the way, as a last thought. The Twitterverse is tailor-made for the left. It rarely takes more than 280 characters to dispose of your opponent by calling them a "racist," or a "Nazi," or a "white supremacist."

Just sayin'

"Many of the dissenters were women who couldn't be intimidated by the threat of military service."

I love history for the little buggets of information it provides. It broadens your perspective.
