Freedom is Slavery


 



 

 
March 6, 2010
 
I got that idea from Orwell.
 
But, as I look around me these days, I think the words should be reversed.... Slavery is Freedom.
 
Yes, that seems to more accurately predict the attitudes I see around me.
 
HI remember someone once trying to convince me that "free enterprise was neither."
 
I could never figure out what he was trying to tell me. It kinda struck me as being equivalent to saying, "football is neither."
 
Maybe my logic is impaired.... (where is my disability check????) so I figure what he was trying to tell me was that "free enterprise," is neither free nor enterprise.
 
In the movie, I noticed a sign... it said, "Regulation Meal."
 
Sound remotely familiar?
 
In another segment I noted, "Ignorance is strength."
 
All I could think of at the moment was the person I heard asking, "Where is my Obama money." Yes, ignorance is strength... but not to the person who asked that question.... would it be too much for me to conjecture that ignorance is indeed the strength of those who wish to rule the ignorant?
 
The sheep, the cattle.... the livestock.
 
I went into a Tim Horton restaurant recently and I saw this guy come in with a ring around his nose.
 
Being who I am, I could not help but interpret his self immolation as an open invitation to those who would govern to grab that nose ring and lead him on down to the pastures of socialism. Was he a product of government education? How could he so willingly advertise that he was willing to be treated as nothing more than livestock?
 
Thought Crime
 
We are not there yet. We don't have the technology. Just wait until the government has come up with a way of expropriating technology, skewing it to it's own ends... to the point where every citizen will be required by law to have a "thought chip," implanted in their mind.
 
The "Human Rights Commissions," will have a field day!
 
No longer will they have to rely upon interpretations of things you said, or are alleged to have said, or things you said which might be subject to various interpretations.
 
Nope, once those state mandated electrodes are implanted in your brain..... there will be no escape for anyone who has an opinion outside the parameters prescribed by the state.
 
They will have you squarely by the balls.
 

 
If you doubt this, just consider what happens to some people if they dare to volunteer what it is they may be thinking.... they could have avoided being skewerd by the HRC's if only they had shut the fuck up!
 
But they foolishly opened their mouths and revealed the contents of their minds.
 
When individuals are perscuted for speaking their minds, is it such a stretch to imagine that, given the technology, they not be persecuted for using their minds?
 
BIG BROTHER IS WATCHING YOU
 
The government of the City of Hamilton has, by virtue of it's coercive power to permit or deny the right to earn a living, imposed a new mandate upon the local taxi industry. As of May, 1st, 2010.... all taxicabs will be required to have in car cameras.
 
BIG BROTHER IS WATCHING YOU.
 
I noticed a sign or something in the movie... about the "Ministry of Nice." It instantly reminded me of Dagwood McGoofball's mandatory.... yes, MANDATORY, holiday.... "Family Day," which mostly benefits public sector union members, who get yet another day off with pay... at the expense of the rest of us. Now isn't "family day," just NICE?
 
I think of how NICE it is... when I go to work on that day. It's so NICE i have to double up on my beer purchase the day before because I am such a NICE guy. And because the nice people who work for the government have a right to enjoy quality time with their families while I am expected to keep on working to make it happen.
 
You know, I am getting tired of being NICE.

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 …
