Fun with acronyms.

Is anyone else losing track of the revisions to the LGBT acronym?

I found LGBTQQIP2SAA. I expect the list to keep on growing.

The Burlington pig lady says, “This is the fight of my life. I am going to spend the rest of my life fighting for the rights of animals ’til they are considered equal just like the rest of us.”

What letter will they use to cover pigs?

They can't use "P" for "pig," or "porker," because that letter is already taken. "B" for "boar," is already taken. So is "S" for "swine."

Oh, I've got it! "H" for "hog."

LGBTQQIP2SAAH.

There is a lot of potential, right there, for a massive expansion of the acronym.

There is no "C" in there, so cows are easily included. But that leaves out cats. Let's use "F" for felines. There is no "D" for dog, but what about donkeys? I forget, is "donkey" synonymous with "mule?" Or can We use "M" for "mouse."

I don't want to get too wrapped up in the details right now so let's just temporarily adopt the convention that the letter represents all of the animals in that class. Throw in an "E" for elephants and eels and we are already up to LGBTQQIP2SAAHCFDME. Oh, and an "R" for reptiles - LGBTQQIP2SAAHCFDMER.

Then you will have to separate all of these groups depending upon whether they are cis, gay, or questioning, etc. You'll need a book of regulations the size of the Toronto telephone directory (if it still exists) just to sort out all of the bathroom protocols, not to mention the allocations of publicly funded surgeries and hormone replacement therapies.

An army of interpreters will be required when worms (LGBTQQIP2SAAHCFDMERW) start running for public office. (as if that would change anything.)

Then there is the thorny issue of plant's rights. According to one report, "living organisms should be considered morally for their own sake because they are alive."

Whew! This whole issue of assigning rights in accordance with identity politics could start to seem rather crazy to some people. Politicians, on the other hand, can be counted upon to enthusiastically embrace the challenge. There is no better profession than politics because it allows its practitioners to create their own "jobs," no matter how utterly useless they may be, while drawing a guaranteed salary from the public purse.

Imagine the quandaries that would evolve in the field of medical ethics. Picture this in comic format,

A potato is lying in a bed in the intensive care ward. A doctor stands nearby talking to a bushel full of close family members. The caption reads,

"I think we should pull the plug."

Is it time to pull the plug on the whole damned thing?

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 …
My Warning from an Uberpeople.net "Moderator." I just got a message from one of the moderators of the uberpeople.net Toronto driver's forum. In it he states, "This forum values opinions from all angles. However, being argumentative, name-calling, personal attacks, instigating other members, and any post that can be deemed confrontational will not be tolerated. Please refrain from any posts of this manner, even if instigated. We hope you can tone it back a bit going forward. Please review the terms and rules http://uberpeople.net/help/terms" I think he was feeling a bit humiliated after he read my criticism of his limp response to my "Uberpeople Service Animal Discussion" that I posted in the Toronto Uber taxi driver forum. Things have really changed in the last twenty-five years. It used to be quite the rollicking back and forth in discussion forums. Now, whenever you get the better of some smart-ass who takes shots at you, he threatens to have yo…

Hamilton's Check Engine Light Crisis and Other News

Unanimous Pro-Uber City Council Vote: The Damage "Check Engine Light" Crisis Uber MADDness Uber Hamilton by the Numbers Working with numbers can be a lot of fun. At least, I think so. I once took an in-house course, back when I had a real job, called "Strategies of Experimentation." I can't remember anything I learned in that course, but it made an impression on me that impacts my thinking to this day. It says that if you don't have solid data to work with, use the next best thing. Try to build a cloud of probability. Use whatever information you do have and think about whether it falls within the realm of reasonable expectation. The following analysis attempts to use this approach to some degree. What is known for sure is the approximate amount each taxi operator pays to the taxi broker for the service of matching riders with drivers - just like any other "technology company." That is $500 per month, per cab, or $6000 per year, per cab. With 44…
