Your Monday Puke

I have been waging my own "take a knee" campaign for about forty years by refusing to stand for, or sing the national anthem. I had my reasons. Mostly, it was a protest against the lies I had been told as a youngster in government-run private schools, about Canada being a free country.

I realized the truth in 1974. Since then, it has only become increasingly obvious. It has come to the point where freedom of speech is being denormalized, just as tobacco has been. Criticizing a certain religion has become taboo as well. Free speech zones on university campuses are the new smoking areas. Give it a few more years and you will see signs that prohibit free speech within 27 meters of all hospital and government building entrances. The surveillance technologies for enforcement are now ubiquitous.

The bogus claim that second hand smoke is harmful to bystanders is now being used to claim that there is no safe level of exposure to free speech either.

The new communist lyrics to the national anthem just gives me even more reason not to stand in the future.

That is, until the government makes it mandatory.

More Puke

Further evidence that Canada is not a free country comes in the form of general acceptance of the idea that citizens do not have the right to negotiate wages (see minimum wage) and that government should play an increasingly intrusive role in hiring decisions.

  1. Good analogy with smoking ban and free speech. In my opinion worse than government is the government's boss....central banks, their wall street cronies and conglomerate business. The sad part about politicians, especially like Wynne, is she firmly believes in the bullshit they do. Tragic comedy.

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…
