What a couple of haughty clowns these two fools are. I've never heard of Professor Giroux, (should I have?) but as a cab driver, I have met thousands of McMaster students over the last several decades. When it comes to politics, economics, history, social policy, racial and ethnic politics, they are the dumbest bunch of brainwashed idiots of all of my passengers. People who have real jobs tend to be much more connected to the REAL WORLD. They have real problems to solve in their own lives. They are getting a REAL EDUCATION. The knowledge they accumulate has actual APPLICATIONS.

Which is not to say that I have not actually met one or two Mac students who surprised the hell out of me by their comprehension of the real issues. They were obviously not Prof. Geroux's students, or, if they were, they were probably getting real shitty grades. One young person told me he feels the need to keep his opinions to himself, for fear of the overwhelming backlash. I guess he was one of the "Owellians" Professor Geroux disrespects.

And yes, *I* would have voted for Donald Trump enthusiastically, but NOT for any of the reasons this bozo "Professor" lists. He's talking out of his asshole. (Reminds me of a "so-called" judge.)

I was so impressed by Prof. Geroux's ability to be completely wrong, about everything, that I almost launched into one of my famous rants (famous to my one fan) but, nobody reads them. And judging from the number of hits this youtube conversation has received (25 so far,) even less would read them here. (Although, I intend to cross-post this video along with my comments to facebook and twitter to see if it gives them more traffic.)

In the sidebar, I see a 10 minute talk by Prof. Geroux, entitled, "Neoliberalism, Youth, and Social Justice," but, if he is as clueless as this interview clearly demonstrates, then it would be a complete waste of time. Still, it beckons. What other nonsense does he spout? It reminds me of another alleged "fascist's" admonition,

"Don't bother to examine a folly? Just ask yourself what it accomplishes."

It's a shame, really. Professor Geroux might have found a calling in life that was actually useful. Instead, he gets paid for spewing nothing but formulaic, crypto-commie horseshit. But, my guess would be that his "higher education" was subsidized by taxpayers. Go figger.

"Orwell would be rolling over in his grave." My ass.

Orwell predicted this shite.

My Encounter with an Uber Cab Driver I had an encounter with an Uber cabbie this morning. When I pulled into the parking lot at the front of my townhouse complex, I noticed this guy sitting in a small, Uber-like car, staring at this dash-mounted smart-phone, and looking confused. He was sitting in front of unit #1. I got out of my car and started walking toward my own unit which is also numbered. It's not a gigantic complex, so in my simple, low-tech, cab driver's mind, I figure that if you are looking for a unit number at an address, the first thing you should do is look at the number on the unit. If that number is "1" the next thing you do is look at the number on the next unit. Often, though not always, that number is either a "2" or a "3" depending upon the numbering format. In my complex, the next number is "2" and so on. For a taxi driver that information can be critical. So this guy looks up at me as I am walking by, and ask…
Fluid Law and how Uber Successfully Exploited It The guy almost gets the story. One thing he misses, though, is how Uber, with its "Madison Avenue" strategy is able to exploit the natural, systemically inevitable, corruptibility of most politicians. This whole Uber phenomenon would not have been successful at all, given that taxi regulations already exist, unless they could get the politicians on board, and convince them, or persuade them to pretend they actually believe, that Uber was not in the taxi business. Hence, Uber taxis are exempt from existing taxi regulations. Most people would interpret this state of affairs as a tilting of the playing field, which it is. The sleazebags at Hamilton's City Hall came up with the term, "New Licensing Category" in order to facilitate Uber's circumvention of the existing taxi bylaw. "New Licensing Category" is nothing but a code word for tilting the playing field in favour of a politically sexy fad. I…
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…
