I am probably going to vote Conservative on June 7th. (if I vote at all.) It's not that I like the Conservatives. It's just that they give me the least taste of political sewage in my mouth. For example, just look at Kathleen Wynne. Never have I witnessed such unabashed moral corruption. She is so consumed by her own hubris, that she truly believes she is capable of "building" Ontario, and giving out oodles of free stuff. What kind of idiot actually believes that shit? Well, apparently lots of idiots. Enough to make her a political force to be reckoned with. I recommend everyone join Twitter and subscribe to Kathleen Wynne's Tweets. Here is Kathleen's smiling face as she "gives" free prescription drugs to a certain demographic group. There she is, smiling again, as she "gives" millions of dollars to some private company to "create jobs" and other such bullshit. Oh, and here she is pretending she gives a fuck about some mi…

How Uber Silences Women After Sexual Assaults"Our job is to tell the world that Uber has its lights on." Ha ha! That is truly amusing, coming from a company who, at least in my city, continues to operate with unmarked private vehicles, largely to evade local enforcement efforts. As one local officer told me, the reason they only come down hard on identifiable (A.K.A. - non exempt) taxis, is because they can't find the Uber cabs. And even though the city has mandated that Uber cabs have identifying stickers affixed to their windshields, few Uber drivers comply. And why would they? The mobile enforcement officers are too busy rooting out "check engine light" violations on the cabs with roof lights, decals, ID numbers, and taxi license plates. Uber drivers, as with their parent company, consider compliance to be optional.... for them. Duh! This may be an old fashioned idea, but I will state it nevertheless... the law should apply equally to all citizens. B…
A Horny Man is Not FreeAn Exploration of Proposals for the Achievement of Greater Human Equity. It's Time to License/Regulate SexPreface I am re-posting an essay I wrote over two decades ago. I neglected to record the original date, but the context indicates it was written during the early years of the Mike Harris regime in Ontario. This same essay appears on an old website I built in 1998. Therefore, these data points indicate the essay was written after Mike Harris was elected 1995, and before the website was built in 1998. The idea of this essay was to take the state of the world at the time, and apply "progressive," (I.E. leftist, communist, socialist, "liberal," Liberal (Ontario and Canada today) and fascist,) "thinking" to sketch a rough outline as to how we should expect the left to react once they got around to sticking their noses deeper into human affairs. I have attempted to correct some of the common spellig and gammatical errors as of t…
Blame Hamilton's Politicians for the Accessible Taxi Fiasco. Hamilton City council voted unanimously to grant unlimited, flexible taxi licenses to the Uber cab company back in January of 2017. Along with granting generous exemptions from the plethora of regulations burdening the other two taxi companies, it's worth noting that the Uber cab company was also exempted from accessible taxi mandates in return for a pittance of $20,000 per year. (Less than half the cost of a single accessible taxi.) Predictably, the decision to double and triple taxi capacity, in a city that was already saturated with cabs, resulted in a massive blow to the earnings of the city's non-exempt taxi drivers. We've had more than a year now to assess the damage. What has surprised and puzzled me, is that the day business for non-exempt taxis, has experienced far less of a decline in volume than has the night shift. Many day drivers report an imperceptible impact. The reason for this is that, a…
Does everyone have the right to loiter? Or does it just apply to black folks? ​ The nerve of Starbucks for kicking two black guys out of one of their shops. No matter what the actual circumstances are, many people think this is a prima facie case of racial discrimination. I can see the day when some convenience store owner gets accused of anti-black discrimination because he insisted on being paid for the chocolate bar. "We wasn't doin' nuthin'. We was just grabbin' a few chocolate bars and this shopkeeper called the cops!" Desmond Cole, Matthew Green, Andray Domise, (all of whom have blocked me on Twitter,) and a raft of other race-obsessed "activists" will be emboldened enough to declare that expecting to be paid for goods and services is just another example of "white supremacy." What I would like to know is this, is it Starbucks corporate policy that anyone can occupy space in their stores, and use the washrooms etc. even if they ha…
Information Overload; and how to Counter It. There is too much shit going on right now. I can't get my mind around it all. Buzz. Click. Information overload. Until a minute ago, I would have attributed the term "Information overload" to Alvin Toffler. I read his Future Shock in high school, and for reasons I can no longer remember, I still count it as one book that strongly influenced me. Curious as to whether "Information overload" had earned a place in today's lexicon, I googled it, only to discover that Toffler was not the originator of the term. /quote/ The term is popularized by Alvin Toffler in his bestselling 1970 book Future Shock, but is mentioned in a 1964 book by Bertram Gross, The Managing of Organizations.[4] Speier et al. (1999) stated:[5] Information overload occurs when the amount of input to a system exceeds its processing capacity. Decision makers have fairly limited cognitive processing capacity. Consequently, when information overl…
Intelligence Vs. Knowledge​​ I had my picture taken with Ezra Levant during a talk he did a few years back in Toronto. The man is, IMHO, quite brilliant, notwithstanding the horseshit he, and some of his Rebel Media associates, put out to support the Uber taxi brokerage. It only goes to show that, no matter how razor sharp a mind you have, you can still be lulled into talking absolute nonsense if you lack sufficient knowledge. The flip-side of this coin, of course, is the so-called "knowledgeable fool." I have known many of these in my lifetime - people who seem to have encyclopedic knowledge of every subject under the sun, but remain nevertheless, utter fools. ​​ I am sure you all know such people. ​​ Then we have, on occasion, spectacular exceptions, like those who lack both knowledge and intelligence, like our current Prime Minister, yet who are taken seriously by dangerously large numbers of people.... including those who like his hair. ​​ I liken it to a computer.
