Quote Of The Day

"...Mass civil disobedience as a new stage of struggle can transmute the deep rage of the ghetto into a constructive and creative force. To dislocate the functioning of a city without destroying it can be more effective than a riot because it can be longer lasting, costly to the larger society but not wantonly destructive. Finally, it is a device of social action that is more difficult for the government to quell by superior force.

The limitation of riots, moral questions aside, is that they cannot win and their participants know it. Hence, rioting is not revolutionary but reactionary because it invites defeat. It involves an emotional catharsis but it must be followed by a sense of futility."

Martin Luther King, Jr.  Conscience for Change, Massey Lectures 1967.

***

Of course, Reverend King was correct. A natural wisdom and understanding of history that permitted him to assess human nature with a sober and smart mind.

Today?

What to the nouveau-pseudo intellectuals, media and political masters focus on? Words.

Citizens are burning their own communities down and what do we hear? That it's racist to call them thugs.

How this doesn't strike a sensible mind as being vacuous designed to detract from the violent actions, is something that befuddles me.

They mistakenly, in their infinite ignorance and determination to detract from the truth and reality, and obsessively attempt to change or amend the vocabulary and vernacular.

This is like putting cologne to deal with body odor.

The riots we have seen in post-Luther America are the strict domain of thugs and criminals - and a few misguided souls to be sure - for as the Reverend King pointed out, they know it's not productive.

And the media and politicians and pundits alike who childishly scream we must change the vocabulary are complicit in this reactionary act; this lie.

Quote Of The Day

“Who’s responsible for the immigrants who come and settle in Quebec?” he asked rhetorically. “It’s the federal government. It’s true it’s a shared jurisdiction, but they swear allegiance to the Queen.
“So we don’t have 25 years before us. It’s now that we have to get to work. It’s right now that we have to ask Quebeckers the question and make all the proper efforts to convince them.”

Pierre-Karl Peladeau.

Oh shut up you xenophobic buffoon.

Jesus Christ the PQ are a bunch of hicks.

This from a guy who once said to shareholders:

“I firmly believe that companies that do not have a global vision do not have a future.”

When it suits him, he's a man of the world.

Except for Quebec. Quebec has to remain the stagnant and insular entity in order to seize control.

Let's just say he's more of a attention-seeking opportunists than a visionary.

A Peladeau led PQ would be a one-way ticket to Smallerville.

Alternate View On Omar Khadr

From Le Quebecois Libre:

"Now that Khadr is a free man—of sorts—perhaps he will have a chance to demonstrate whether he is indeed a victim of circumstance or the caricature of evil described by his critics. In his first public appearance after his release, he came across as articulate, thoughtful, and entirely unthreatening. If Khadr manages to build a normal life for himself and becomes a productive and peaceful member of Canadian society, it could go a long way toward changing the minds of those who see the war on terror as a Manichean conflict between the US and its allies who can do no wrong and the forces of darkness who are pure evil. If Omar Khadr—the poster-child for Dick Cheney’s shameless lie that Guantanamo Bay housed the “worst of the worst”—turns out not to have horns and cloven feet, then perhaps the entire edifice of the war on terror is rotten. And maybe—just maybe—the best way to prevent terrorism and keep us safe is not to pursue endless war and adopt draconian legal codes, but simply to mind our own business and engage with foreigners not through violence but instead only through voluntary cooperation."

A thought take on Khadr. As contemptible his parents were - and there's indeed something to be said of having been thrust into such a violent situation as a 15 year-old was unfair - he is a Canadian citizen and deserves to rebuild his image and life.

Are we not an enlightened society that believes in second chance?

I got the same impression when I listened to him. I know. You never know and I walk the 'useful idiot' line but the whole affair was mishandled by both the USA and Canada.

Time to move on.

Bizarro Meets Kafka

Saudi Arabia - fresh off a round of barbaric beheading sessions - aims to get a seat, get this, on the Human Rights Council.

And they'll probably get it.

If Israel sought the chair, you can bet your ass all the left-wing pansies on University campuses would be out in force protesting.

Saudi Arabia?

Crickets.


Climate Change Monsters Under The Bed

So Obama is concerned about climate change.

Hm.



***

Despite controlling the narrative, scientists in Canada claim to be muzzled by the government.

Muzzling, censorship, whatever, all bad. I'd rather they just have their say. You know where I stand on this issue. I'm consistent. Unlike the middling, paid pundits with a platform to spew their tiny little ideas. Like, I don't know, people like Jonathan Capehart - Washington Post's finest - and his 'extremist' gibbering.

Let them own their words.

Nor do I go unhinged like the climate cultists asking for people to be imprisoned for having a different opinion.

Particularly given the horrible track record of accuracy on their side. Imagine putting people in prison for, say, having challenged Erhlich's assertion that 'England would cease to exist by 2000'?

Think about it.

Think.

In 5 or 10 or 15 years I bet none of their doomsday scenarios come true. Just like in the 1970s.

We must act....NOW!

/looks at watch. Looks at calendar. Days, weeks, months and years pass.

Ok. NOW!

Oh. About that accuracy.

Temperature tampering still happening.

Call me old fashioned but thank God for people who investigate and question what's being fed.

Joke Of The Day

A blonde is watching the news with her husband when the newscaster says “Two Brazilian men die in a skydiving accident.”

The blonde starts crying to her husband, sobbing “That’s horrible!!! So many men dying that way!”

Confused, he says, “Yes dear, it is sad, but they were skydiving, and there is always that risk involved.”

After a few minutes, the blonde, still sobbing, says, “How many is a Brazilian?”

Quote Of The Day

"Understand, climate change did not cause the conflicts we see around the world. Yet what we also know is that severe drought helped to create the instability in Nigeria that was exploited by the terrorist group Boko Haram. It’s now believed that drought and crop failures and high food prices helped fuel the early unrest in Syria, which descended into civil war in the heart of the Middle East."
-Obama

Except the weather in Nigeria hasn't changed all that much for quite some times. This anti-intellectual shtick of assigning climate change to all sorts of global problems and issues is rather discomforting and disturbing. Who in their right logical mind would correlate Boko Haram's rise and violence to climate? It's almost as if we've become incapable of understanding such organizations for what they are.

I'm getting the distinct feeling Obama, faced with an uncooperative Congress while mired in a state of lame-duckness, is just gonna speak from the heart. And as we saw with his speech to Coast Guard graduates, it's immature as it is unprofessional as it is irresponsible.

I mean, to flat out claim climate change erodes national security is waaaay out there.

Too much for me anyway.

Quote Of The Day

"When Edward Snowden revealed our intelligence secrets to the world in 2013, civil liberties extremists seized that moment to advance their own narrow agenda. They want you to think that there's a government spook listening in every time you pick up the phone or Skype with your grandkids," Christie is set to declare."

What in God's name is a 'civil liberties extremist'? You mean, people who don't feel it's justified to kill citizens with drones without due process? That statists like Christie give more powers to law enforcement agents too lazy to get the address on the warrant correct?

Narrow agenda? Is this asshole for real? People who care about civil rights, apparently, are a danger to government now. 

Oh. And NSA is spying on people. And if you think the government won't railroad some poor shelp if it's politically expedient (see that poor jerkoff who made that video the government claimed sparked the attacks in Benghazi. They through him in prison knowing full damn well it wasn't the truth) you're one gigantic naif.

Christie can seriously go fuck himself making stupid, authoritarian, cocksucking tough talk.

And yeah. I called him an asshole. Since when are politicians above being criticized and insulted? Say idiotic things, you will be called out. That's what a free and vibrant society keeping close tabs on its leaders do.

 

There Is No Such Thing As Abusing Freedom Of Speech Or Expression

NO. SUCH. THING.

The Passing Of A Blues Master: B.B. King Passes

Among the greatest of all blues musicians B.B. King passed away at the age of 89. Needless to say, there's no shortage of out-pouring of thoughts and emotions following his death.

American blues and rock legends were the roots and architects of the British invasion. Without them there is no Rolling Stones, The Kinks, The Faces, Led Zeppelin, The Who, The Yardbirds, Cream and Eric Clapton, Pink Floyd, The Beatles and countless others.

You Oughta Help



There's plenty of evidence that humans are naturally 'communistic' creatures. That is, they voluntarily come to help thy neighbors. The idea that we must have the state interfere on our behalf is a fairly recent phenomena. This political socialism has proven to, if anything, bring much misery through coercion. Even its benign 'democratic' form has not provided the results intended. And therein lies a huge problem. Whenever confronted with the reality (backed by statistics) we choose to throw more money at a problem rather than offer any meaningful or innovative solutions so committed to the progressive collective. Make no mistake about it, ours - the West- has been a progressive experiment for well over 100 years now. The so-called 'neo-liberal' policies are more the exception than the rule.

***

I do not accept the notion of redistributive wealth without proper consent. Admittedly, I sway to and fro with the concept of 'the wisdom of crowds'; the notion that a majority of people possess the wisdom for our collective mutual benefit. I reckon this may be plausible in certain instances but how could seven out of 10 people actually profess to understand or know the particular and personal circumstance of the other three?

And as the video argues, where the minority resist, is it 'fair' or just to use force against them thus violating their rights; nay, moral conscience?

Currently, in contemporary times, we're witnessing tyranny of the majority. Be it Christian bakers being mauled by lynch mobs, cartoonists merely depicting a religious figure in ways not accepted to some, to people who absolutely can't tolerate other views (and I squarely and frankly assert the left are the worst offenders of such anti-intellectual that directly threaten civil liberties) publicly shaming them on social media and campuses.

Freedom of speech and expression is a preciously young concept. It must be defended at every turn.

OUTRAGEOUS! TOWN OF GRANBY GOES TYRANNICAL

The town of Granby has made American news.

Congratulations.

Quebec only seems to matter whenever we attack freedom of speech and expression.

And we do this very well. Too well I fear.

All of you - look at me. Every single one of you out there.

We're one step closer to being in a situation where criticizing politicians will be outlawed.

This is precisely why we must absolutely and unequivocally not allow politicians to control the internet. They will use it to muzzle the people.

Are you listening?

Let Granby be a retarded derelict among towns. As long as we don't let them become the rule. We must keep them as the exception.

It is absolutely staggeringly outrageous this law passed.

So. Without further ado let me stand and be heard on this matter.

Fuck you, Riel and the Granby council.

Undo this law. Now. It will take us places we don't need to go.

From the comments:

"Canada, Quebec, everywhere here, is moving so fast to the far right that pretty soon no will trust anyone. 1984 was supposed to be a work of fiction, not a guide for Canadian politicians."

No, honey. Socialism - the left - was the target in 1984.

And Quebec. Moving to the right? Surely you jest! Because of 'austerity'? Give me a break. Don't worry, hon. The thick veil of Quebec Scandinavianism remains in tact.

Fall Of The West: Exhibit 4959596677

I'm not sure what to make of protestors rioting in London because of Cameron's election.

Other than the full blown decrepit and deranged state of the modern left.

Other than, of course again, the left's love of mayhem and destruction.

They truly want one-party rule. Which of course makes them authoritarians.

Then again, we already knew this, right?

***

Speaking of one-party rule, this worked out great in places like Detroit, Chicago, Newark, St. Louis and Baltimore, eh?

Not to mention Arkansas, Louisiana, Alabama and Mississippi.

All Democrat bastions over the years. 


Quote Of The Day

"Where there are progressives there is (love of well-intentioned) destruction."
