The slow boil

About three weeks ago now, I saw the same Ezra Levant interrogation piece, from a link over at The Geek's place.

After reading Robb Allen's short piece on the events (H/T to Tam on that), I must say, he's made the most damnable argument yet on the subject, in general, by integrating as many facets of the situation into the idea that is really being targeted as possible. And after reading a bunch of responses to Mr. Levant's videotaped session over at YouTube, by and large, most everyone is missing the greater point of the whole exercise.

The mere fact that the woman has a job, an official, governmental-type job that is declared for the purpose(s) of, what was it, oh, a "Human Rights Commission," for the possible "thought crime" of offending someone else's religion? That is what the larger issue is, here. That there has been a declared position for something like this by the Canadian government. I don't care if she is "just doing here job," as she has no business having a job such as this, and the fucking Canucks don't even realize that they have NO AUTHORITY on the subject of making this position, either.

What they are attempting to do here is assert that it is their duty to enforce some sort of standard of morality upon the general populace, and control peoples writings, speeches or beliefs through nothing more than thought control by the proxy of what has become popular to call a "Hate Crime" these days.

One more step toward tyranny.

I'm fairly certain that the dolt who I've been arguing with over here hasn't a clue about what he's saying, and he's just A-OK with breaking out the legal dictionary and doing all sorts of defining and refining of what rights are and what they are worth, all in an attempt to make the world a more orderly place in his own mind.

Let me clarify with a quote from that last link, via Phil at RNS:
...freedom of expression doesn't mean the right to offend,

Make no mistake, this is surely that EXACT same type of mind (both Mister Guy and this Maxime Verhagen [Foreign Minister, no less]) that brought us fellows like Stalin, Hitler and FDR; authoritarians who'll do ANYTHING to get what they want, and if some citizens have to die along the way, well that's just too damn bad, but more profoundly, it's the ideals of Liberty that get trampled in that same process.

Sickening, but it's all right there for anyone who is awake to see it.

I'm afraid that the glow of that very ideal that led men to prosper in this country is, by and large, no longer understood by many, and therefore, will die a miserble, whimpering death before I have the opportunity to naturally expire from this world.

Overt gender and race baiting

And from the obvious source too.

If anyone else tries this kind of crap, and definitely if they are identified with an "R" in front of their name by the political stripe they wear, they'd be excoriated by both the media and the masses.


Only Slick Willy can get away with crap like that.

Cthulhu gathers strength

Since Fred's no longer in the race, I'm forced to write-in on my vote, come November.

And since he was my horse, and I can't even hold my nose to vote for any of the other candidates, Cthulhu gets the nod.

For the FIRST time in my adult life, I can't conscientiously cast a vote for either of the major parties, regardless of who now gets the nomination.

Bring on the Suckage.

We're sure to get another 8 years of it.

Can anyone see where this will end up?

For some preface, From Karl Marx,

"From each according to his abilities, to each according to his needs."

Then this, from the news. Your body is not your own. At least it is from the viewpoint of the NHS.

I just love that they've made the supposition that they have authority of your remains, no doubt because they've given out all that "free" healthcare to their citizenry for the last 60-odd years.

"Oh, you can opt out," I hear the pollyanish bootlickers calling from their knees. I don't care one bit. If it's that easy to tell someone that they're going to be giving up their organs unless the citizen first speaks up, the governmental thugs will eventually get around to telling the dolts that they're giving them up by coercion. After that, it'll be a steady diet of controlling the eating habits of 'Ole Blighty, since the overseers need to better preserve those organs through proper diet management of the sheep, you see.

Any talk of this over here (and there will be) should be meted out with swift decapitation of the offending party.

No, I'm not kidding about that either.

Anyone wondering about the criteria and methods...

for determining who's first and who's worst?


My healthcare is just fine the way it is, and I don't need someone else yammering about how badly I need another government-run boondoggle to strap me with even more onnerous taxes while promising that it's all gonna get better for everyone.

These studies boor the living shit out of me, and anyone who takes the majority of them seriously needs to call Dr. Phil in regards to some serious compensation issues.

That is all.

Update: The Commonwealth Fund, on its home page, just now, says,

"Report Sees Major Savings by Combining Universal Coverage with Health Reform Options"
It's a charitable foundation, you see, with high goals and aspirations like,

"promot(ing) a high performing health care system that achieves better access, improved quality, and greater efficiency, particularly for society's most vulnerable populations. These populations include low-income, uninsured, ethnic minorities, young children, and elderly adults. The Fund carries out this mandate by supporting independent research on health care issues and making grants to improve health care practice and policy. An international program in health policy is designed to stimulate innovative policies and practices in the United States and other industrialized countries."
Yeah. Heard this all before. This isn't anything more than a hammer looking for a nail.

Fucking media swine are more than willing to publish a dipshit hit piece such as this.

I'm still wondering why it is that the U.S. is getting so many foreigners coming here for such things as timely cancer treatment? Why, if the healthcare is so much better, in say, Canada?

It doesn't matter, really. Just keep repeating the same lie and eventually it becomes truth. Typical Marxist doctrine at work.

Move along.

It's really not all that shocking...

to find out that the state of Kalifornia now has the legal authority to control your thermostat.

At least it is for me.

Saw this coming long ago, and the logical conclusion from this is absolutely nothing good. Imagine a kind of inverse of what Pol Pot did; rounding up folks in the mansions, the bourgeoisie and suburbs, stuffing them into high-rises reminiscient of Pruitt-Igoe, and selling everyone a line about how good they've got it, or how much environmental damage they're supposedly saving by herding everyone into the Gulag. Easier to control the peasants, no doubt.

Your home will not be your own for long. A large scale assault is underway to put the automobile into the history books, and the single-family dwelling as well. All in the name of Mother Gaia.


H/T to Billy Beck.

This struck a cord with me, since I tend to snear at most politicians anyway.

Can't agree with the Kucinich character at all. Apart from the height differential, I'd more likely compare him with Jar-Jar Binks: a simple-minded dolt with big ears and having followers of the UFO-seeing type. Too much crazy for their own good, or mine.

I'm wondering about the comparison of Ron Paul to Jedi-Master Obi Wan as well. A quirky, short guy who's all about conspiracy theories and talks funny? Sounds more like Yoda, dunnit? But that's still a bit of a stretch.

And Obama as Luke? Salvation of the Universe? Please. Try the messianic bit on others, your Jedi mind shit won't work on me.

My boys did it

So, my alma mater, far better known for its hoops savvy, returned to the Orange Bowl last night for the first time since 1969.

I watched the entire game, and they acquitted themselves nicely, I thought.

They won in a way that they've been using all season, playing as a team, without ego or finger-pointing, even when, late in the third quarter, they were clearly on the ropes. The 'D' came through when it counted and even scored a TD. The offense, sometimes stymmied, moved the ball when they had to and had some big clutch plays, and the special teams were just outstanding.

They toughed it out, however, and beat a perennial east coast powerhouse. Never would have thought I'd see it happen.
