Screwed

I was asked in a conversation what is my take on the events of 2021/01/6
“Still on the Trump Train? Not concerned about the integrity of democratic system at all?”

I answered: I don’t know what it means to be “on the Trump train.”
I also don’t know what do you mean when you say “not being concerned about the integrity of the democratic system at all”
This whole past month was about the integrity of the democratic system which rests upon the integrity of elections. I am more concerned about it than ever. I did not know that I was on the Trump Train. I don’t even know what that means. Continue reading →

Saint Donald and the Demoncrats

I got into a few interesting conversations recently about Donald Trump and the election mess the US is dealing with. What connects them, is the visceral hatred, disgust or anger about this one person. The reaction to his persona, his demeanor, his behaviour, his mannerism. Their viscerally negative reaction is beyond any reason. As if they were possessed by a demon preventing them from acting rationally. Some even found a name for this condition: Trump Derangement Syndrome. Continue reading →

What matters?

They clearly don’t.

  • Not to the BLM organization’s ‘trained Marxist’ leaders, who just want a revolution…
  • Not to George Soros and his fellow rich donors to the movement, who just want to help the revolution to ‘move on’….
  • Not to Democrats in the US who are committed to L.B. Johnson’s goal of keeping blacks in perpetual vote slavery…
  • Not to the DNC, which is just collecting the donations for BLM to be redirected to the financing of democrat candidates’ campaigns…
  • Not to the local politicians, who created the problems of the black communities whose welfare they are responsible for…
  • Not to the white liberal college students who are just using this opportunity for virtue signaling…
  • Not to Antifa, which is using any excuse to further their own anarchist agenda…
  • Not to the universities with their affirmative actions achieving exactly the opposite of their stated goals….

MLK’s dream, LBJ’s goal, Biden’s proclamation

How did we get from MLK to Biden? From the dream of equality to the proclamation that unless you submit yourself to the ideological masters of the vote-plantation, your identity is irrelevant? How did the democrats pull it off?
Like they do with everything else. Lies and manipulation, threats and bribery, scaring voters with boogeymen and offering socialism as the solution. Continue reading →

Cui Bono?

My mother-in-law just turned 86. She is very active, much of her time is spent with sight-seeing trips and long hikes. She is suffering from the lock-down, but she is also puzzled. She is wondering where are the piles of dead bodies promised by the experts? She is surrounded by people of her age, the highest risk age group. Not only nobody she knows is sick, but nobody she knows know anybody who is. Why is everybody trying to scare her? Why is she getting confusing and contradicting information? Why is the story changing all the time? She is not alone with the questions. Continue reading →

Exposure

 

I could not decide what would illustrate best what I am trying to say about the most important aspect of the Covid-19 pandemic. The first picture is the infamous Mordecai Richler gazebo on Mont Royal in Montreal. It was a restoration work with a final price tag of $700,000.- Yes, that is seven hundred thousand Canadian dollars for something that you can buy brand new at Home Depot for less than $7,000.- (taxes include). It is a monument to government incompetence, waste and corruption. It is a glaring exposure of the problems that lay behind.

The second picture is about the perverse exposure of our dirty little secrets. We have many, and the pandemic with the whipped-up panic around it exposed them all. The pandemic is real, the response to it is just perverse. The problems it exposes exist on several layers. The politics, its consequences and what it says about us. Continue reading →

The controllers of the past

For the past few weeks, I start my days with looking at the latest news and statistics about the future of our confinement.  Yesterday, the news was good. It appeared that we peaked with new infections and daily deaths. Then this. The daily death rate in the US more than tripled in two days. It went from 1,452 on the 14th to 4,928 on the 16th.

Keynesian dysfunction

I chanced upon an interesting TED talk about porn addiction.  The points made there are that internet porn watching is an addiction, working just like any other, exploiting our biology and eventually becoming seriously harmful. What I did not know, even though it makes perfect sense, is that excessive stimulation creates insensitivity that will lead to dysfunction.  What I did not know is that there is a widespread erectile dysfunction problem among men in their twenties.
