Rant blank ends for now...

Wow.... just when I thought I was running out of rant fuel... I came across this link by Mr. Rockwell,
 
 
He says, "I really think it comes down to this: leftists, in their heart of hearts, hate capitalism more than they fear the total state."

And it got me thinnin' (Iaawwwl do the thinnin' 'roun' here bubba louie! - remember Kvicks Draw McGraw?) ;-)
 
I would make a comment or two....
 
or three...

I am currently reading,  "The Really Inconvenient Truths: Seven Environmental Catastrophes Liberals Don't Want You to Know About--Because They Helped Cause Them," by  Iain Murray.
 
It reinforces my belief that radical environmentalists are actually motivated, in their heart of hearts, not by any genuine concern with the environment but rather by a white hot hatred of freedom, capitalism and humanity. (Actually, every time I hear, for example, David Suzuki open his mouth about some issue his hatred of freedom tends to remove any lingering doubt about his true motives. - sorry if some of you think he's some kind of a hero. I can't stand the guy.)
 
The book reveals "how ethanol, the liberals' favorite fuel, is destroying the world's rainforests--and could cause global food shortages and how Al Gore's hero Rachel Carson cost the lives of millions of Africans through her efforts to ban DDT." 
 
For example, the orang utan is being wiped out in Indonesia. (I have always had a soft spot for these peaceful creatures.)
 
Who is behind this extermination? Well, it's being partly driven by the EU's mandatory biofuels program (http://www.biodieselmagazine.com/article.jsp?article_id=3140) a coercive response (with government, is there any other kind?) ... to the global warming scam.
 
Yes, I know... it's BIG BUSINESS again... but it's BIG BUSINESS cashing in on GOVERNMENT mandates! That ain't "consumer driven" economics. And it ain't free market capitalism. Nor is it democracy.
 
The US government is subsidizing the biofuel industry to the tune of about $5 billion per year. Government mandates are turning our food into fuel. Have you noticed the price of bread lately? Archer Daniels Midland laughs all the way to the bank.
 
Sheesh! our governments are giving money to the auto companies to build.... more cars!!! And... the growth of the auto industry was itself spurred on by road socialism. And the poor Orang Utan has no clue as to why he is being murdered.
 
Nor did a (million or so?) Iraqi's... 
 
People ask me, "in your perfect little world, who would build the roads?" My answer, after spending many years searching for one, is finally .... "maybe no one? -- maybe we would have evolved in a totally different way... with, say, private, for profit, mass transit... but hey, profit is a dirty word."
 
I read once that the US had a lot of private, for profit, street car companies operating around 1900 (someone, correct me if I'm wrong.) But GOVERNMENT regulations drove them to the brink of bankruptcy... so now taxpayers everywhere are forced to subsidize inefficient, union, greed dominated, tax sucking "public" (yecchhh!) transit systems.
 
Maybe in the absense of road socialism and, ahem, rent control (another liberal pet project) - which seemed to stop the building of high-rise apartments in Ontario dead in it's tracks.... we would not now be confronted with another thing the environmentalists all pretend to hate so much.... car and fuel dependant urban sprawl.

Here is an article on what is happening to the "Man of the Forest."

Government is growing like a cancer. It has metastacised into every nook and cranny of human life. In the twentieth century it murdered some 180 million people.
 
It is still very busy.
 
Ludwig von Mises said,
 
"The worst evils which mankind has ever had to endure were inflicted by bad governments. The state can be and has often been in the course of history the main source of mischief and disaster."
 
Big government is not the solution. It is the cause. Power always corrupts.
 
Be careful who you trust.

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 …
Uber in Hamilton Update: Maria Pearson, Don't Delete This One.Molly A cabbie friend of mine told me that she had recently received a follow-up call from her council rep, Maria Pearson - Ward 10, over a recent licensing issue. After some small talk, the councilor asked my friend, I'll call her Molly, how things were going in the Hamilton taxi business now that Uber had been formally exempted from Hamilton's "old category" of taxi licensing bylaws. Molly told her that things were really bad. Then Molly suggested that if Maria wanted more information on the Uber impact, that she should talk to "Hans." Maria replied, "Hans Wienhold?" Molly: "Yes." Maria: "Oh. I just delete his emails." When I heard this I laughed. First, Maria feigns interest in the plight of Hamilton's cabbies (probably just fishing for a vote, IMHO,) and then, when offered a source of information on the Uber impact, Maria unconsciously intimates th…
Cab Drivers Endure Verbal Abuse Friday, October 6, 2017 A group of rowdy young males approached the taxi stand at about 10:00 P.M. looking for a taxi ride to Guelph Line and Upper Middle Road in Burlington, a distance of 18.2 Km. The spokesman for the group offered the driver $20 for the ride. An 18.2 Km. ride in a taxi would run approximately ($1.80/Km X 18.2 Km + $3.90 =) $36.65 at the non-Uber taxi tariff rate mandated by the City of Hamilton for non-exempt (I.E. non-Uber) taxis. The same ride in an Uber taxi, at non-surge pricing would run ($2.50 + $2.80 + 18.2 Km X $.90/Km) = $21.68. As is so typical of younger Canadians, raised and educated in Ontario's liberal dominated "Me First" culture of entitlement, the rider became indignant and intimidating when the driver refused to match Uber's rate and break the law. The millennial then taunted all of the non-exempt cabbies who were present by announcing he would take a tariff-exempt Uber taxi instead. Some …
