The Staggering Hypocrisy of Politicians

"“These are all people who are loved,” she said. “These are brothers, sisters, parents, grandparents, and I think this is a staggering loss of life of a preventable cause.”

This from an article on the Toronto Star website.

It's typical of the left-wing, crypto-communist, virtue-signaling, and downright bullshit crud that emanates from that disgusting rag on a regular basis.

The reason I selected that quote was because of the irony of the suggestion that all of these unfortunate victims of human mortality seem to have received no help from the people who supposedly "loved" them.

And since the people who supposedly loved them had done nothing to stave off the "preventable" cause of death, it is a failure of "all of us," according to City Councilor Joe Cressy (Trinity-Spadina).

That's you and me. We are guilty of the deaths of 27 homeless people, and we didn't even know it. For similar reasons, many of us are also guilty of benefiting from "White Privilege," even though we didn't know that either(!)

Don't you just love it when a politician, who's job is basically to sit on his ass and opine about how he and his colleagues should spend other people's money, uses the word, "US," when what he really means is "YOU," the taxpayer?

Here's my advice to Councilor Cressy.

If you REALLY feel responsible for the deaths of homeless people, as an individual rather than one who prefers to hide behind the relative comfort, and lack of tangible commitment, that is afforded by blending one's own degree of devotion into the collective, "US," I recommend you pick up a hammer and some boards and start building houses for these people.

Anything less than that is just just meaningless virtue signaling.

Anything more than that?

Don't expect it from a politician.

And this just in from the City of Hamilton. Local politicians who sit on their asses and wag their tongues for a living are now talking about spending money, which is NOT their own money, on providing free air conditioners to poor people. Isn't that big of them?

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…
