Lincoln Didn't Give a Shit about Slavery I've never been a big fan of Lincoln. From what I know of him he was an opportunistic monster. (Like most politicians.) One thing is hardly controversial. Lincoln didn't care, one way or the other, about slavery. He said so. "My paramount object in this struggle is to save the Union, and is not either to save or to destroy slavery." And to save the Union, he was willing to engage in a struggle that would cause the deaths of 600,000 Americans. And ever since I came across the notion that U.S. intervention in WWI set the stage for Hitler and WWII, I have often wondered if the outcome might have been different had the South won their independence and the corresponding diminution of U.S. power had prevented Versailles. Think about it. What would the world look like today if there were both the United States of America and the Confederate States of America? And no. I don't believe the Confederacy would still have r…

Professor Calls Cops on Black Student Back when I was a rookie cab driver in the late 70s, I picked up this drunk from some shithole bar. I was driving a Chevy Impala ex-cop car with a bench seat in the front. The guy sat directly behind me, then put his feet on the backrest in front of him, right beside my head. I asked him a couple of times to put his feet down and he refused. Not wishing a physical confrontation with the guy, I took him to the central police station and asked them to remove the guy. A paddy wagon showed up. He was arrested for being drunk and shipped off in the wagon. Big Fucking Deal! Are you saying that if the guy were black I should have put up with it for fear of being called a "racist?" By the way, you learn a hell of a lot about racism when you drive a cab. There are reasons for disparate outcomes that correlate with race.
Mass Shootings When I hitch-hiked across the American south back in 1976, from Florida to California, mostly along Highway 10, it seemed that every vehicle that drove by was either a transport truck or a pickup truck. And every pickup truck had a gun rack in the cab and many of those contained rifles. It was definitely a gun culture. Was I worried? Not in the least. I was thumbing with Ed. We got a ride from these two guys from Arkansas. Talk about your country boy stereotypes. They had a car, a beat up old Caddy or something, and when we got into the back seat, our feet were resting on the two rifles that were just sitting on the floor. But I wasn't nervous. They were just a couple of good ol' boys, with a pronounced southern drawl, probably farmers or ranchers. The trip was uneventful. And of course, I grew up across the street from a guy whose father was a hunter and who had a small, deadly arsenal in his basement. It never bothered me. Nor, as far as I know, did it bot…
You are right. Socialism will ultimately prevail. Actually, it already has prevailed. In the west, it started to gain steam in the 1960's. In Germany and Russia, it started about 50 years earlier than that. If you take academia into account, it probably started a further hundred years back. In the early 1800's, Frederic Bastiat was already debating the communists. In one form or another, it goes all the way back to the caveman, as Kubrick suggested in the opening scene of "A Space Odyssey." Popular music and popular entertainment were the first signals that culture had fully adopted all the premises of socialism, along with a burning hatred of capitalism and everything that symbolized capitalism. (The United States, Western Civilization, cheeseburgers, central heating and the automobile.) The protest songs of the 60's and 70's smeared capitalism for creating too much wealth. Wealth was hated because it resulted in disparities. Producers tended to get rich …
Political Rock Concert I know I am getting old when I get as much of a thrill from watching a political debate, as I used to get going to a rock concert. Keep in mind, this is the debate those of the leftist persuasion, including NDP leader, what's her name? And that Toronto Star purveyor of anti-western hatred and demonization, Shree, wanted to shut down because, they claim, Steve Bannon is a "racist." And then watch the debate. And then ask yourself, are you willing to let people like Andrea Horwath and Shree Paradkar decide what you should see? Or would you rather be given the dignity, and the RIGHT to make that decision for yourself? Censorship isn't just about shutting down the speakers. It's about deafening the listeners. Just ask any current Gab subscriber. Or any potential subscriber .... like YOU. Encore! Encore!

The Murder of Gab & the End of Internet Freedom

Endorsement of Jagmeet Singh for the Federal NDP LeadershipI commented on Matthew Green's latest video. He'll probably delete it as soon as he sees it.
I said,
"Instead of trying to turn Canada into another Venezuela, why don't you form a Canadian socialist migrant caravan and march down there? I'm sure you and Jagmit will be able to fix things in no time. All they need is "real socialism." Right?"
Let me know if my comment is still there.





The Terrible Truth About Birthright Citizenship

John Taylor Gatto (1935-2018) I read his book, "The Underground History of American Education," about ten years ago. It was a real page-turner. It was then that I REALLY realized that calling public schools, "child prisons" was not an exaggeration. To this day I cringe when I see adult voters demand MORE government involvement in raising their kids, including "free" universal daycare. It's like watching someone eat glass. I don't think it would be a stretch to imagine that if the government "education" system were to get hold of children the instant they emerged from the womb they would never learn to walk and talk. (With the insanity coming out of left field these days, it wouldn't even be that much of a stretch to imagine that the faster learners were making the other students "feel bad," and that therefore, they should be held back. To hell with the "white supremacist" meritocracy. Let's all just craw…
Phony "education." Now that I am no longer "working," (Like driving a cab could ever be considered a serious form of work,) I spend most of my time learning. Learning is something you choose to do. No one can just give it to you. I first realized this when I was a student at Mohawk College. (1981-83) I noticed many of my classmates complaining about some of the teachers. Those teachers could not teach. And they were right. Some of the teachers could barely speak English. Of course, they couldn't teach. I knew even then that their presence, and their salaries, depended more upon politics than economics. But I decided I would not let that stop me. So I stopped attending the classes of the politically selected teachers, and instead, started reading the textbooks and doing the exercises. It worked! Instead of being confused by faltering attempts, in broken Engish, to explain subjects like physics and organic chemistry, I decided I would learn the shit on my…
Assault on the WestNews from the Southern Front "The strategy is to collapse the financial system. The tactic is chaos. If a crisis does not exist, create one. The more chaos the better. The solution is always couched in empathetic words like “fair,” “equal,” “humane” and “just.”" <Source> "Joseph Stalin reacted extremely slowly to the invasion of his country by German forces in 1940. Indeed, not only did he react slowly, but he also ignored warnings that the Germans planned to attack his country. Stalin's response to the German invasion has perplexed historians for many years." <Source> Tucker asks Jorge Ramos: "How many of these people are you taking in to your own home, and are supporting once they get to the United States?" Watch how Horgey Boy answers. He refuses to provide a direct answer, he does the usual pivot and squirm moral flatulation dance so typical of liberals, but in the end his answer is inescapable, none. How to spot a …
Questions about Spanish Supremacy I have some questions, just off the top of my head. As we all know, Canada and the U.S. have a lot of Indian reservations. The question germinated in my mind as I observed, in particular, all of the controversy surrounding Hispanic (as in, a Spanish-speaking person living in the US, especially one of Latin American descent) immigration to the U.S. It seems to me that Spain and Portugal, just like Britain and France, "stole" the land they now live on, from indigenous peoples. Stuff I learned about Pizzaro and Cortez in public school, grade five or six, and what they did to the indigenous people's of South America and Mexico used to make me sick to my stomach. Yet, I hear absolutely nothing about *Hispanic Supremacy*. Even more bizarrely, the progeny of the villainous conquerers of Peru and Mexico who stole their countries from the Incas and the Aztecs, are often touted as heroes by the left as they come to increasingly occupy the land…
Twitter, Taxis, and Uber After using Twitter for about three years now, I have mixed feelings about the platform. I don't like the way they flex their economic muscles to interfere with the flow of information and opinion through shadow banning, the dishonest "mute" feature, and outright banning of certain, mostly conservative and libertarian, points of view. But I still use it. First of all, they can go ahead and censor all of the people I like. That won't stop me from finding out what I want to know. They can ban Alex Jones, but so far, I can still visit his website or his BitChute channel. So, no matter how intellectually insulting it may be to me that the Twitter gods have to taken it upon themselves to decide for me the type of information and opinion I shall be permitted to consume, it has had zero impact. Zero. But even worse, from my point of view, would be if they banned the people I have nothing but contempt for. That would be those on the left, like the…
This is not NewsIt's my opinion. One of Tucker's best shows yet. As usual, Tucker invites a couple of crypto-commies onto the show. Sometimes, these segments can be a bit cacophonous as they talk all over each other, but I love that he has them on the show because, ultimately he is able to expose them for the utter fools, or dishonest slimeballs they are. Even though I can't stand them, I value being given the opportunity to watch and study them in action. By the way, this is why I am 100% opposed to censorship. If, for example, two of tonight's guests, Chris Hahn and Jason Nichols had been silenced or de-platformed, (like Alex Jones or Faith Goldy and many others have been,) as someone who almost never finds their opinions have any merit, I still value the opportunity to hear what they have to say. And to study and familiarize myself with their sophistic techniques. Censorship does a disservice, not only to the fans and supporters of the affected pundits but to …
Everything is Not A-OkayOn Racism, Immigration, and CensorshipThis week's favourite quote, "Death solves all problems. No man, no problem." -- Joseph Stalin Widespread social media censorship is the digital equivalent of Stalin's quote. Just ask Alex Jones. (Alex who?) Definitions[Oxford] - Communism: A theory or system of social organization in which all property is owned by the community and each person contributes and receives according to their ability and needs. Collins - Fascism: is a set of right-wing political beliefs that includes strong control of society and the economy by the state, a powerful role for the armed forces, and the stopping of political opposition. Mine - Communism: Left-wing fascism. In Canada, it is the core principle of the Liberal, New Democrat, and Green Parties. In the U.S., a core principal of the Democratic party. Everything is Not A-Okay The stink this week over the way Zina Bash was sitting at the Kavanaugh hearings demonstrates …
Maxime Bernier - True Hope for Canada In "Why my new political movement?" Maxime Bernier mentions "Public Choice Theory." I remember when this was all the rage in the libertarian literature that I was reading back in the 1980's. (Like Reason Magazine) It's easy to understand. Concentrated interests, like egg producers, have a very strong incentive to maintain marketing boards because they make a huge financial difference - to them. A Fraser Institute book I read (The Egg Marketing Board: A Case Study of Monopoly and it's Social Costs - 1981) explained, if my memory serves, that the cost to the consumer of maintaining egg marketing boards worked out to be the equivalent of breaking one egg out of every dozen. Even today, at $2.27 for a dozen large eggs from Fresco, it's not a big enough expense to mobilize the public against the marketing board system. But that one egg per dozen represents a significant benefit to the producers. Therefore, they wi…
No Welfare for Immigrants:How to achieve unanimity in the Canadian Immigration debate Here's just a few, off the cuff, ideas for addressing most of the objections Canadian tax captives have about immigration. In Canada as it is set up now, only a fool can be in favour of open borders. As as libertarian, I remain 100% in favour of open borders, but only under certain conditions. The most important condition is that Canada be a free country. Since that is obviously not the case, I cannot support open borders at this time. Here are a few other conditions that, if met, would make me more agreeable to open borders, even without abolishing state education, government medical insurance, welfare, public pensions, the CBC, and so on, 1 - no welfare payments, especially child tax benefit payments, for immigrants for at least a period of time, say ten, or X, years. 2 - no free medicare for X years. (The word is that there are a lot of Pakistani MD's driving cabs. Restrictions on t…
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 …
Hamilton Taxi Industry Running Out of Gas Last night I was having a bad day because of a persistent mechanical problem with the cab that, despite several diagnoses and repairs continues to persist. Then I started a conversation with a fellow driver who drives a Ford Taurus. I asked him how his car was running and he responded with a litany of complaints and tales of woe. A couple of weeks ago, while running a fare in Hamilton's industrial sector, his vehicle was damaged by falling debris. At least one window was broken, and some body damage occurred. While in the taxi repair shop, rats got into the trunk and began chewing on the wires. As a result, the instrument panel went haywire and the fuel gauge stopped working. To date, the mechanics have been unable to diagnose the problem. As a result, he's been driving the cab without a fuel gauge for a while. Given the difficulties Hamilton's politicians have imposed on rank and file drivers, especially with respect to it…
Coming Soon: Shock Collars for Population Control“You know, there’s a level of admiration I actually have for China ….” China? Why China? “Because their basic dictatorship is allowing them to actually turn their economy around on a dime." -- Justin Trudeau It seems that technology now being deployed in China will allow them to turn more than their economy around on a dime. They'll be able to turn their entire population around on a dime. Intelligent Classroom Behavior Management System Our politicians will finally be able to get everyone to quit smoking and drinking Big Gulp sugary drinks. It will be followed by the prohibition of a never-ending and growing, list of behaviors that "liberals" disapprove of. (driving, eating meat, free speech, and so on...) This "intelligent classroom behavior management system," will become ubiquitous in a few years. Along with a cashless economy, the behavior of every citizen will be monitored. Government schools are…
I am probably going to vote Conservative on June 7th. (if I vote at all.) It's not that I like the Conservatives. It's just that they give me the least taste of political sewage in my mouth. For example, just look at Kathleen Wynne. Never have I witnessed such unabashed moral corruption. She is so consumed by her own hubris, that she truly believes she is capable of "building" Ontario, and giving out oodles of free stuff. What kind of idiot actually believes that shit? Well, apparently lots of idiots. Enough to make her a political force to be reckoned with. I recommend everyone join Twitter and subscribe to Kathleen Wynne's Tweets. Here is Kathleen's smiling face as she "gives" free prescription drugs to a certain demographic group. There she is, smiling again, as she "gives" millions of dollars to some private company to "create jobs" and other such bullshit. Oh, and here she is pretending she gives a fuck about some mi…
How Uber Silences Women After Sexual Assaults"Our job is to tell the world that Uber has its lights on." Ha ha! That is truly amusing, coming from a company who, at least in my city, continues to operate with unmarked private vehicles, largely to evade local enforcement efforts. As one local officer told me, the reason they only come down hard on identifiable (A.K.A. - non exempt) taxis, is because they can't find the Uber cabs. And even though the city has mandated that Uber cabs have identifying stickers affixed to their windshields, few Uber drivers comply. And why would they? The mobile enforcement officers are too busy rooting out "check engine light" violations on the cabs with roof lights, decals, ID numbers, and taxi license plates. Uber drivers, as with their parent company, consider compliance to be optional.... for them. Duh! This may be an old fashioned idea, but I will state it nevertheless... the law should apply equally to all citizens. B…
A Horny Man is Not FreeAn Exploration of Proposals for the Achievement of Greater Human Equity. It's Time to License/Regulate SexPreface I am re-posting an essay I wrote over two decades ago. I neglected to record the original date, but the context indicates it was written during the early years of the Mike Harris regime in Ontario. This same essay appears on an old website I built in 1998. Therefore, these data points indicate the essay was written after Mike Harris was elected 1995, and before the website was built in 1998. The idea of this essay was to take the state of the world at the time, and apply "progressive," (I.E. leftist, communist, socialist, "liberal," Liberal (Ontario and Canada today) and fascist,) "thinking" to sketch a rough outline as to how we should expect the left to react once they got around to sticking their noses deeper into human affairs. I have attempted to correct some of the common spellig and gammatical errors as of t…
