Back in the Saddle.

I am sick and tired of this depraved and senseless world we live in. I look at the statistical map of mass killings in the US and think: no one does anything, those who are elected to serve and protect only protect the gun lobbies, the NRA. 'We the people' is a fallacy, truly. A sop to the masses.

I look at the murdered and missing aboriginal women in Canada well over 1,000 and counting just about daily and think: no one gives a shyte. Our man Harper focuses on Niqabs and the wearing of them at citizen oath-taking ceremonies and the troops rally around that particular flag and sends him skyrocketing in the polls,(our election looms shortly)which says a whole pile about our electorate and their hidden prejudices and women hatred. Forgetting, of course, that not too long ago Xtian nuns were so garbed and in some cases hidden behind screens even from their parents, looking at you Carmelites.


I predicted, way back months ago, that Trump and Harper would be the kings of North America. Two first class manipulators, millionaires, man-beasts. Both held in thrall to the worst of capitalism and fundamentalism, slurping at the troughs of oil, the standards of industrial militarism held high, death to the brownies, the blackies, the other than Xtian belief systems. Not forgetting, in Harper's case, overt references to the "Old Stock" Canadians - i.e. the founding-rampaging-death-to-all-aboriginals "fathers". In Harperland your legitimate citizenship can be revoked if you don't behave. Even if you were born here. Stasi-land, Harper style. And I haven't gone into the spying network he has set in place to monitor the "New Stock" citizenry like yours truly and presumably those pesky First Nations people with their protests and marches against clear cutting and unbridled oil-derrick hoistings.

I backed away, consciously, several years ago from political commentary, it was frying up my brain. But it seems that lately the corruption, callousness and trampling of rights is breathtaking in its audacity and horror. I am compelled to vent.

Terrorism as 'out there' no longer exists, if it ever did.

Terrorism, in many forms, is right at our own front doors.

  2. I lost my faith in the superiority of Canadian society to ours when a Canadian woman told me her town was hardly Canadian any more,because there were so many "visible minorities." I looked it up and found that that is actually a respectable governmental demographic designation. Talk about institutionalized racism!

  5. Gaetano Mosca in ‘The Ruling Class’ says that people never rule as democrats think. Whatever the form of dispensation, 'the domination of an organised minority obeying a single impulse, over the unorganised majority is inevitable'. Our experiments with various forms of economic governance has proved this in more than abundant measure.

  6. A depraved and senseless world indeed. Sometimes just thinking about it makes me feel physically ill. A lot of people seem to take a twisted delight in being as abusive as possible to other people.

  7. I have had to stop watching the political news. I'm just sick at the way people are responding to this manipulation. I *thought* Canadians were better than this. But then Harper brought in this Australian Lowest-Common-Demon-e-vote-getter to find a way to divide and conquer, and he's done it. This "Old Canadian Stock" shyte turns my stomach. What scares me most about Harper is that his policies are based on his religious belief in "Dominionism" , i.e. that science and environmentalism are in direct opposition to the will of God. Which is why he has gutted science and environmental projects and destroyed decades of irreplaceable scientific data. WW I don't know how you feel about links, but this is a link to an excellent article about how his religion has impacted Canadian policy since he gained majority: http://www.watershedsentinel.ca/content/harper-evangelical-capitalism

  9. So glad you addressed this topic. I'm a Canadian (believe you are as well), and am cringing at the possible results of our federal election. Hate what went on during the campaign! Can't believe that we might allow it to continue...

Some of you are having trouble, I've removed captcha and verification so we'll see how that goes. My apologies. Blogger is putting up far too many roadblocks. Thanks for the emails alerting me.
