Fight Status Quo Ontario!

It's now up to Quebec and The West to fight Ontario, especially the federal Ontario mentality that has had for far too long been imposing their view of Canada on the rest of us.

For my part, I'm just getting started -- and as Frank M. O'Dowd used to say: the Ontario Status Quo Federalists are about to prendre leurs baisse.

You can count on it.

The Trudeau-Chr├ętien Clique Are Exactly Like The Bourbons...

In short,  They had learned nothing and forgotten nothing.” 

To wit: Goldenberg's opinion piece in The Globe And Mail:

Let's start with a few of his gems:

He [Mulroney] had not learned the lesson that, despite early agreement by first ministers, elite accommodation is not sufficient; public involvement and public opinion have a critical role to play.

Precisely. What planet has Goldenberg been on exactly? Has he failed to notice through innumerable constitutional rounds, inevitably ending in abysmal failure, that the Canadian people by and large don't give a shit about the grievances of one province -- not to mention several. Put another way, they couldn't care less if the whole fucking country walks. Yes, they are that self-centered, ignorant and dare I use that word, entirely provincial in their thinking. In other words, we like Canada the way she is, deeply flawed, so to hell with anyone and everyone else who wants a revamping of this joke of a federation.


But Goldenberg gets better. Here's where he tells all of us that push for reform that we might as well hold our breath and turn blue since the non-accommodation fix is already in:

Mr. Trudeau should understand that the courts always give meaning, sometimes in unexpected ways, to constitutional language. The courts may well interpret the proposed amendment in a manner that affects the operation of the federation as a whole, which would require the approval of Parliament plus seven provinces representing 50 per cent of the population. The Prime Minister therefore bears the responsibility to ensure that such an amendment not be enacted without full public debate, understanding and acceptance of all the potential consequences, including those for minority language rights in Quebec and the rest of Canada.

Put in more honest language: why don't we let Canadians decide? By all means, since we all already know that most of the country will quite deliberately go out of their way to screw Quebec, Alberta and anyone else who wants even the most minor of amendments to this so-called constitution.

And then there's this unsurprising piece of advice for the current Prime Minister:

The Prime Minister has a solemn duty to consider the consequences for the whole country of any reopening of the Constitution. He must slam the constitutional door shut now before it is too late.

This is where Goldenberg reveals his utter fondness for a static constitution which won't ever be amended again, perhaps in our lifetime? Funny eh, but a constitution, even a deeply flawed one like ours is supposed to be a living, breathing document that changes to reflect the new realities of Canadian society. Oh no, not in this country. You see, this is a cowardly nation with its nose firmly fixed to a pane of glass. Who the fuck gives a tinker's damn if we go down the tubes. After all, utter indifference and evident stupidity is the Canadian way...

Again, precisely.

Canada Is Dying One Day At A Time.

This post concerns comments that I left on WarrenKinsella.com. I hope you enjoy it and that it spurs internal reflection, if not debate.

Robert,

This has been and is still today a disingenuous country from the get-go, period. It’s based on the false political premise of bilingualism, largely promoted by Pierre Elliott Trudeau and company. Trouble is, in English Canada through the generations, there was absolutely no desire to run their provinces or territories reflexively in both English and French. Young people took French immersion and spent the rest of their lives living them out solely in English. It’s a fucking joke: English Canada wants to run its affairs only in English, just like daddy USA…in short, absolutely no good faith intent to make this country a truly bilingual nation. When I was at Carleton in the 80s, I was astounded and beyond irritated hearing from Franco-Ontarians how they couldn’t get served in French, in the nation’s capital, at the municipal level. Robert, you’ll be able to tell us if they truly can today and if employees of the city of Ottawa speak both English and French while doing their jobs internally but I still have my doubts. But I digress. Face facts English Canada, there is no province or territory in this country that’s bilingual, meaning 80-90% of its residents speak both official languages on a daily basis. Sadly, there is but one region: it’s called Northern New Brunswick and its mostly the Acadians and the Brayons who speak English and French on a daily basis. That says it all about a supposedly bilingual Canada.

Now to my province: like English Canada who genuinely only wants to speak English on a daily basis, French-speaking Quebecers also want their society to be run solely in French. Those with a North American perspective, especially the young and up and coming generations want to learn English and make it their business to learn it. In the millennial generation, there are more bilingual young people than ever before and that trend will continue, regardless of language legislation.

Now as to the constitutional front, English Canada goes out of its way, via their political leaders, not to recognize Quebec as anything other than just a typical province. For Christ’s sake, even my grandmother saw reality on the ground and was for special-status for Quebec in the 1960s and 70s. But English Canada had and continues to have other ideas, namely, fuck Quebec with The Constitution Act 1982, fuck them again on Meech Lake, screw them once more vis-a-vis Charlottetown and go out of their way to keep screwing Quebec in the future. THAT’S REALITY, English Canada.

So, in the final analysis, this country will ultimately be politically dismembered by English Canada and we will walk. But we won’t be alone because those same political morons who are screwing Quebec have a second game going at the same time and it's called fucking Alberta and that too will continue even after Quebec leaves, so Canada, prepare for Alberta’s eventual exit as well.

In short, this country was always doomed from the start: Atlantic Canada and Ontario with one vision, largely achieved; Quebec with another with special-status within the federation and the West with their own vision of a truly equal nation as regards political power and influence spread across this country at the federal level and between the provinces and territories themselves. But they, like Quebec, will never, ever, get what they want, so one day AB walks either to go it alone, or join the United States.

Put bluntly, Canadian politicians in English Canada have made their beds and the people in each jurisdiction have foolishly supported them since 1867. From the start, no one on the ground wanted all Canadians to be functionally bilingual and no one ever will. So, don’t cry for me Argentina — it’s no longer a matter of when Canada will be no more, it’s only a question of when and that date is approaching a lot sooner than most people think. First Quebec goes bye, bye, and then Alberta. That’s what most of English Canada wants and that’s what they’ll get.

Hey, You!

Is this the type of government Canadians deserve? Never mind about this guy or that guy or that gal leading an opposition party.

That's not what it's all about: I mean, is this acceptable to any rational human being? Have you ever seen a government led this way before? Not me. The level of inate incompetence is truly mind boggling. 

They laughed at other governments in the past but this clown has outdone them all. Is this what YOU pay your taxes for?

There's so much gaslighting going on that they could start their own power company. FFS, Canadians deserve way better than this total joke, always inevitably smiling at the prospect of having yet again put another one over us.

No political accountability, no ethics, no transparency, no fundamental valves like keeping faith with Canadians. Nothing, and I mean nothing other than staying in office and doing as he pleases.

So...what the hell are you going to do about it?

Anti-Vaxxers Can't Help Themselves Because They're Narcissists.

Here's how Good Housekeeping describes a classic textbook case:

  • People with NPD expect to get special treatment.
  • They exaggerate their own smarts, success, power, and looks.
  • The lack of empathy leads them to take advantage of people, with no regrets.
  • Narcissists may be extremely jealous and ultra-sensitive.
  • Because they tend to be very thin-skinned, they may angrily lash out at any criticism or push-back.
  • Narcissists also may lash out when they feel like they’re not getting special treatment.
  • Underneath all of these traits is a deep sense of insecurity.
  • And — no big surprise, when you consider all these traits — narcissists may find it super-difficult to have healthy relationships, and have loads of trouble at work or school.
The ones I know are about as self-centered as they come. They go with a major theme, read excuse, why they won't get vaccinated. They couldn't care less if they get infected, if they become a spreader and even more incredibly, if they infect colleagues, family members, friends, acquaintances or strangers. In their minds, only their egotistical existence is truly important.

And like GH reported, they think they shit gold bricks every time they hit the can. They are at once strangely in love with themselves while at the same time insecure and convinced that no one has a lower self-esteem of themselves than they do.

The exact same mentality transfers over to mask-wearing. It's not for them, no matter what scientists, doctors, public health officials or even God says. As one idiot said to me: if I have to wear a mask (in the office), I'm leaving.

The only people more clueless are the dimwit politicians who remove their masks to speak before microphones...hello, it's an air-borne transmissible virus and guess what, the mic is already a super-spreader. Brainless, just like the anti-vaxxers.

COVID-19: A Weaponized Pathogen.

The time for sugar coating and discretion is the better part of valour is long over: COVID-19, like SARS and MERS clearly originated in nature, only to be quite deliberately weaponized for future military purposes. Think about it for a moment. The next worldwide conflagration was bound to be out of the box with mini-confrontations thrown into the mix for testing purposes. In this case, only three words are needed to suffice: that renegade province, otherwise known as strategic objective number one by peaceful methods if possible and by eventual military might if absolutely necessary. But make no mistake: if conquest is the required instrument, then conquest it will be.

Throw in a lab pathogen that has been deliberately manipulated, perhaps even a thousand times and the plot thickens. So, the objective was mass delivery via airplanes and worldwide transmission. Some testing ground. But military strategy required it. It was the ultimate means to a strategic end, namely territorial conquest with the enemy having virtually no capacity to meaningfully resist thanks to future COVID-19 variants designed in a lab. 

Now, let us move to variants writ large: some, at least in the initial phases would be mostly benign with morbidity rates effectively at baseline levels, say 2-3%. But strategic objectives would necessitate the production of other variants with a much higher death rate. Think of Brazil and India, or if you prefer, the tips of that iceberg. In short, we ain't seen nothing yet. It's all part of the grand plan.

Moving on to vaccines, which are essential to maintaining human health but always at least one step behind the latest surfacing engineered variants. They are designed to effectively reduce symptoms of the initial variants. No one claims they can prevent COVID-19. Imagine the gamechanger as new variants emerge that are far more deadly to a broader section of the human community.

Scientists and doctors are all about the traditional concept of mass vaccination and herd immunity. Quite obviously, novel variants that were deadly way beyond a scope previously seen would put the flame to herd immunity and likely render it almost impossible. Another quite deliberate gamechanger.

So, where does that leave humanity? Reasonably, one can conclude that variants could still be with us in say five or ten years. Forget about The Spanish Flu and its two to three year duration. Today, we're entering a new deadly paradigm that will shake humanity to its very core.

Make no mistake, the only genuine motive was one of wargaming with humans used as test subjects and lab rats, period. And yes, it does have shades of the Second Coming but it's far too early to credibly comment on that.

Medical practioners and virologists' main enemy is inducing panic among various populations. That's immediately followed by preventing a hot war. Sadly, these efforts are illusionary at best.

Over three million people dead and counting with so much worse to come of an order of magnitude likely so shocking that the human mind can't bear to even contemplate it. Ultimately, a terribly tragic reality for humankind, and one that should never have been contemplated by human beings.
