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?

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…
