Questions about Spanish Supremacy I have some questions, just off the top of my head. As we all know, Canada and the U.S. have a lot of Indian reservations. The question germinated in my mind as I observed, in particular, all of the controversy surrounding Hispanic (as in, a Spanish-speaking person living in the US, especially one of Latin American descent) immigration to the U.S. It seems to me that Spain and Portugal, just like Britain and France, "stole" the land they now live on, from indigenous peoples. Stuff I learned about Pizzaro and Cortez in public school, grade five or six, and what they did to the indigenous people's of South America and Mexico used to make me sick to my stomach. Yet, I hear absolutely nothing about *Hispanic Supremacy*. Even more bizarrely, the progeny of the villainous conquerers of Peru and Mexico who stole their countries from the Incas and the Aztecs, are often touted as heroes by the left as they come to increasingly occupy the land…

Twitter, Taxis, and Uber After using Twitter for about three years now, I have mixed feelings about the platform. I don't like the way they flex their economic muscles to interfere with the flow of information and opinion through shadow banning, the dishonest "mute" feature, and outright banning of certain, mostly conservative and libertarian, points of view. But I still use it. First of all, they can go ahead and censor all of the people I like. That won't stop me from finding out what I want to know. They can ban Alex Jones, but so far, I can still visit his website or his BitChute channel. So, no matter how intellectually insulting it may be to me that the Twitter gods have to taken it upon themselves to decide for me the type of information and opinion I shall be permitted to consume, it has had zero impact. Zero. But even worse, from my point of view, would be if they banned the people I have nothing but contempt for. That would be those on the left, like the…
This is not NewsIt's my opinion. One of Tucker's best shows yet. As usual, Tucker invites a couple of crypto-commies onto the show. Sometimes, these segments can be a bit cacophonous as they talk all over each other, but I love that he has them on the show because, ultimately he is able to expose them for the utter fools, or dishonest slimeballs they are. Even though I can't stand them, I value being given the opportunity to watch and study them in action. By the way, this is why I am 100% opposed to censorship. If, for example, two of tonight's guests, Chris Hahn and Jason Nichols had been silenced or de-platformed, (like Alex Jones or Faith Goldy and many others have been,) as someone who almost never finds their opinions have any merit, I still value the opportunity to hear what they have to say. And to study and familiarize myself with their sophistic techniques. Censorship does a disservice, not only to the fans and supporters of the affected pundits but to …
Everything is Not A-OkayOn Racism, Immigration, and CensorshipThis week's favourite quote, "Death solves all problems. No man, no problem." -- Joseph Stalin Widespread social media censorship is the digital equivalent of Stalin's quote. Just ask Alex Jones. (Alex who?) Definitions[Oxford] - Communism: A theory or system of social organization in which all property is owned by the community and each person contributes and receives according to their ability and needs. Collins - Fascism: is a set of right-wing political beliefs that includes strong control of society and the economy by the state, a powerful role for the armed forces, and the stopping of political opposition. Mine - Communism: Left-wing fascism. In Canada, it is the core principle of the Liberal, New Democrat, and Green Parties. In the U.S., a core principal of the Democratic party. Everything is Not A-Okay The stink this week over the way Zina Bash was sitting at the Kavanaugh hearings demonstrates …
Maxime Bernier - True Hope for Canada In "Why my new political movement?" Maxime Bernier mentions "Public Choice Theory." I remember when this was all the rage in the libertarian literature that I was reading back in the 1980's. (Like Reason Magazine) It's easy to understand. Concentrated interests, like egg producers, have a very strong incentive to maintain marketing boards because they make a huge financial difference - to them. A Fraser Institute book I read (The Egg Marketing Board: A Case Study of Monopoly and it's Social Costs - 1981) explained, if my memory serves, that the cost to the consumer of maintaining egg marketing boards worked out to be the equivalent of breaking one egg out of every dozen. Even today, at $2.27 for a dozen large eggs from Fresco, it's not a big enough expense to mobilize the public against the marketing board system. But that one egg per dozen represents a significant benefit to the producers. Therefore, they wi…
No Welfare for Immigrants:How to achieve unanimity in the Canadian Immigration debate Here's just a few, off the cuff, ideas for addressing most of the objections Canadian tax captives have about immigration. In Canada as it is set up now, only a fool can be in favour of open borders. As as libertarian, I remain 100% in favour of open borders, but only under certain conditions. The most important condition is that Canada be a free country. Since that is obviously not the case, I cannot support open borders at this time. Here are a few other conditions that, if met, would make me more agreeable to open borders, even without abolishing state education, government medical insurance, welfare, public pensions, the CBC, and so on, 1 - no welfare payments, especially child tax benefit payments, for immigrants for at least a period of time, say ten, or X, years. 2 - no free medicare for X years. (The word is that there are a lot of Pakistani MD's driving cabs. Restrictions on t…
How to Save the Ontario Basic Income Program!Background Leftist Ontario virtue signallers have been freaking out over the Ford government's cancellation of the Basic Income free money project that was cooked up by the Wynne government to build up their voter base. I follow a few of these caring individuals on Twitter to study their self delusions. They've all been afflicted lately with Ford Derangement Syndrome, peacocking their indignation at the cancellation of Wynne's free money giveaway "program." But does the program really have to be cancelled? Of course not. All it would require to be saved is for the virtue signallers, and there are loads of them, from Deb Matthews and Andrea Horwath, to a parade of obscure, Twitter addicts, and their offended fans. The good news is that the program can easily continue on a voluntary basis. The only difference is that the leftists would have to reach into their own pockets to show how committed and compassionate they …
