WWW; Wicked Witch Wynne

WWW; Wicked Witch Wynne

Whether you are centrist, left, right or a leaner and you perceive arrogance, do you say to yourself, “Fucking Stupid”? Stupid is the root with subsections like, “Arrogant”, “Presumptuous”, “Bigoted” and “Racist” to name just a few of those subsections.

When I came up this morning, after getting my coffee first of course, I start doing my usual things just like everyone else whether they are centrist, left, right or a leaner. One of the first things I go to is my radio station of choice.

I heard an item on the news this morning that says to me Ontario Premiere Kathleen, “Wicked Witch Wynne” got the latest poll news yesterday ahead of most of us. This now explains an event that took place yesterday.

No the station didn’t refer to Wynne as Witch Wicked, I did.

I thought one of the coffee elves was having a bad day and was making a statement. No, not the case at all.

I’m thinking the “Wicked Witch Wynne” had an entitlement fit and huffed and puffed and tried to destroy the marker of an entitlement all Canadians are, well, entitled to. We are just not getting what we deserve from those elected.

WWW Attacks FINI sz

I’ve used this heritage plaque before and I’ll continue to use this as an illustration and demand to those who’ve been elected. Regardless of Party, a demand that any and all must meet.

Earlier yesterday, (March 30) Ontario Premiere Kathleen WICKED WITCH Wynne learned of the further fall in standing among voters. Wynne is standing with a personal approval rating of 9% and the Ontario Liberal Party an approval rating of 19%.

It is projected that after the election the Ontario Liberals may not garner enough seats to retain official party status. You can read the story with the link provided.

The Stupid that is Kathleen Wynne and the Ontario Liberal Party, they earned their standing. The party deserves the decimation that the numbers indicate because they earned it. Not that far back a beating was laid on the Federal Progressive Conservative’s. The arrogance to believe it couldn’t happen again is part of the stupid list that is the Ontario Liberal Party.

You are correct in the Federal Liberals not being far off the mark of their Ontario counterparts. Trailing in the polls to a Leaderless Party.

Kathleen Wynne and the party have had opportunities to do something to show the electorate they took what the people were saying seriously. Kathleen Wynne could have resigned and didn’t. The sitting Liberal members could have removed Wynne and didn’t.

Ontario’s next general election is scheduled to be held on or before June 7, 2018. When the voters swing, they aint gonna miss.

A Perturbed Canadian’s Parody

A Perturbed Canadian’s Parody

And then some!

My emotional heartfelt reworking of a song in to a parody is at the end of what I have to say. Those of you who are of my semi advanced age, I think you’ll very much appreciate it!

All links open up in a new tab or window. Most of them are to others pieces I’ve written.

The killing of John Ridsdel in The Philippines. When there has been a significant event I like to take a day or two to get a feel and have a look at the responses and feelings that accompany the event.

Canadians are once again up in arms with a lot of anger and disdain directed at Justin Trudeau.  O’ Canada has been paying attention and sounding off!

Mr Ridsdel is indeed a casualty of war. There are no innocents or civilians for our opponents. The sooner people, beginning with Justin Trudeau accept such the better the situation will become.

Using the true words rather than being emotionally controlling isn’t from what I’ve seen something Justin Trudeau is capable of. All the world’s a stage right Trudeau?

You cannot pay ransom. I have much that I find abhorrent with the current tail in the big chair in Ottawa. Not paying the ransom is one of the few things this poster child for “the emotional complex” has done right. Realistic observation says had Trudeau come out in favour of paying the ransom he’d of, most probably had a caucus and country wide revolt on his hands.

To be fair there are things we the public aren’t privy to. We shouldn’t be because it could be a detriment to getting our people back safely. I’m certain our American friends and other allies would have helped with at the very least intelligence if they were asked.

I’m seeing some media chatter (Toronto Star) about growth as a Leader in Trudeau’s response to the killing of John Ridsdel. I don’t see it and not for one second do I buy it! Trudeau isn’t completely senseless and I’m pretty certain his survival instincts kicked in. What I always keep in mind with this guy is that he is an actor.

Look at Trudeau’s statement after Burkina Faso (if the pilot fish that are Butts and Telford haven’t revised it to suit) and look at Dion’s. What does that tell you? Previously Trudeau got ripped and rightfully so for saying he knows the root of terror. Even after this incident in The Philippines he has not recanted that position so what does that tell you?

Justin Trudeau has a lot of explaining to do beginning with his advisor brother. Junior has to explain why he didn’t recuse himself when his brother sent letter to the Liberals asking that deportation of a terrorist be stayed.

I keep seeing the terms “senseless” used by Trudeau to describe the killings around the world. I also keep seeing him use the term, “civilians”. Why hasn’t he learned and why doesn’t he recognize and why doesn’t he acknowledge what so many others know? This Islamic Ideology sees no innocents and allows no civilians.

The battle plan to turn the world in to an Islamic Theocracy isn’t a secret. This plan of attack has been around since the mid 600’s. This is simple stuff. All you have to do to know and understand the plan whether you be Secular or Religious is go read.

Go look at the ideology. They will steal children for indoctrination. The ideology allows no civilians. The ideology demands disinformation.

Go read about these 4 things. A real good look at the ideology that is driving these perfectly sensible attacks around the world.

The Verses Of Violence.
The Taqiyya
That Zakat can fund Jihad.
Taharrush

While you’re at it take a look at how their book was contrived by one person to instill order, fear, allowable atrocities and genocide.

http://www.harvardhouse.com/quran_purity.htm

And then there is the religion of peace’s killing. The Christian killings are there too.

http://markhumphrys.com/islam.killings.html

Understanding what the plan is and being highly concerned doesn’t make you an Islamophobic. It doesn’t make you an Islamophobic despite how much emotional control someone like say, Justin Trudeau wants to exert on you. Expressing your concerns and fears doesn’t make you a phobic anything. It is in, like all things, how you deal with a fear that determines whether or not you’re phobic.

After the Paris attacks during the height of the uproar from Canadians regarding Syrian refugees there was a poll done. The poll was done with the Liberals trying to meet a number they devised to be in Canada by a certain date.

The poll showed 66% of the people, Canadians said yes to accepting refugees and to slowing the influx down and making sure all possible checks were done to ensure to the best of ability that terrorists didn’t make it to Canada.

Nothing Islamophobic there. What is there is a healthy respect for the situation and wanting the time taken to do things right. Damn good plan to my mind!

Justin Trudeau is a manipulator and he learned from a real good one in his father. Most politicians are to a degree manipulators and that is understandable, even acceptable.

I don’t buy in to the shut up and take it because by speaking up you’re offending the giver of the message or some other person(s)!

Expressing feelings is called, “Emotional Presence” and that is good. When you express you can deal with what you are feeling.

Say what you mean and mean what you say. Be courteous until provoked. There has been much to provoke the people by Prime Minister Feminist including him saying everyone should be a Feminist.

I don’t see the unnecessary provoking of Canadians by Trudeau 2.0 stopping anytime soon. Why? Because Justin Trudeau doesn’t know how not to provoke. Justin Trudeau apparently doesn’t know how to read and recognize either!

Enjoy my parody!

Justin I am annoyed
To see your conniving face
You’ve been making quite the site
Traipsing all around the place

Hugging Terrorists
Raising from the budget red
And now I understand you’re a Feminist
At least that’s what You’ve said

So you are the Trudeau
You’re the NOT great Justin Trudeau
Prove to me that you’re no swine
Change my climate to sublime

That’s all you need do
And we’ll know it’s all true
C’mon King Trudeau

Justin you refuse to believe
The shit you’ve caused ‘round here
You’re the fool we talk about
You’re the embarrassment of the year

Oh wait, a selfie
Oh a sickening smile
Still I’m sure that you can mock
The United Nations if you try

So you are the King
You’re the great Justin King
Prove to us you’re no tool
Walk across an oil pool

If you do that for us
Then election reform’s free
C’mon King of the Fools

We only ask things we’d ask any jock star
What is it that makes you a snot
What makes you absolutely sure

We are waiting, yes, we are hostage fans
We are crying to be shown
That you are not just any ham

So if you are the King
Yes, the great Justin King
Feed our country with this dread

You can do it on a retreat bed
Or is the weed too strong?
Justin why do you take so long?
Come on King of the Fools

Hey, aren’t you scared of us fool?
Mr. Embarrassing fool
You’re a fake, You’re not a Lead
You’re nothing but a clod

Make him go away
There’s nothing he can say
Go away, you King of the, go away
Go away, you King of the Fools
Go away, you King of the Fools
Get out of our lives

 

Jesus, I am overjoyed
To meet You face to face
You’ve been getting quite a name
All around the place

Healing cripples
Raising from the dead
And now I understand You’re God
At least that’s what You’ve said

So You are the Christ
You’re the great Jesus Christ
Prove to me that You’re divine
Change my water into wine

That’s all You need do
And I’ll know it’s all true
C’mon King of the Jews

Jesus, You just won’t believe
The hit You’ve made around here
You are all we talk about
You are the wonder of the year

Oh, what a pity
If it’s all a lie
Still I’m sure that You can rock
The cynics if You try

So if You are the Christ
You’re the great Jesus Christ
Prove to me that You’re no fool
Walk across my swimming pool

If You do that for me
Then I’ll let You go free
C’mon, King of the Jews

I only ask what I’d ask any superstar
What is it that You have got
That puts You where You are?

I am waiting, yes, I’m a captive fan
I’m dying to be shown
That You are not just any man

So if You are the Christ
Yes, the great Jesus Christ
Feed my household with this bread

You can do it on Your head
Or has something gone wrong?
Jesus, why do You take so long?
Come on, King of the Jews

Hey, aren’t You scared of me, Christ?
Mr. Wonderful Christ
You’re a joke, You’re not the Lord
You are nothing but a fraud

Take Him away
He’s got nothing to say
Get out, You King of the, get out
Get out, You King of the Jews
Get out, You King of the Jews
Get out of my life

 

Prime Minister Feminist

Prime Minister Feminist

I am a proponent of emotional presence and an opponent of emotional control.

The Globe and Mail did a story, “The Emotional Complexities of Justin Trudeau

Justin Trudeau is emotionally controlling and that is bad!

His mother’s issues I think created a bigoted side to Justin Trudeau which he promotes. He calls himself a “Feminist”. He thinks everyone should be a “Feminst”. What he did sets people at odds. Anyone with any knowledge would know people being at odds would be the result of taking that position.

Feminist has some nasty connotation that angers men and some women. Another word for that nasty connotation is, “FemiNazi“. We are seeing a piece of that Feminist side right here in Toronto by women continuing their advocacy for the 3 women in the Ghomeshi trial. No condemnation for the acts they committed. They’re women and they are to be believed and the man is guilty, period end of story.

Equalists, men and women alike are looking at the whole of that trial and not the Feminist propaganda.

Justin Trudeau is not about equality, merit and excellence or he would have taken that position. I took that position previously and it has reached a place within me of being etched in stone!

Justin Trudeau is also being compared to his father on “Not” fighting for this country. Justin Trudeau has refused to recant that he knows the root cause of terror when the facts are there that disprove his supposed knowledge. I’m still looking for someone to logically explain how removing your assets from the fight doesn’t assist the enemy.

There are two people I’ve now named as the Prime Minister’s surrogate Mommy and Daddy, Katie Telford and Gerald Butts. I also refer to those two as pilot fish. These two pilot fish swam over from Ontario Premier Kathleen Wynne. Doesn’t that just fill those of you who know the damage Kathleen Wynne has done with foreboding!

Trudeau 2.0 lets Mommy and Daddy speak to caucus as if it were he himself speaking. As the state of affairs currently is, I’m thinking Junior must be busy converting people to Feminism or pandering for the job as head of the United Nations.

Emotional Complexities, we all have them and the vast majority of us don’t expect and demand that others be and take on the dysfunction that we are. Add selfish and delusional to the list of Justin Trudeau’s, “Emotional Complexities”.

Inflated Entitlement #1

Inflated Entitlement #1

SCENE:
In one of my 4 favourite coffee spots.

I go to get more coffee and when I get back to my table there be a chicky at the next table.

I look at my computer and I can see the display is dimmed.

I look over to the plug and Chicky is holding my plug in her hand.

Chicky says she just needs to charge her phone.

I tell Chicky she has to plug me back in.

Chicky says but I need, and I’m just staring at Chicky with a blank face.

Chicky looks at me like I’m being mean.

Chicky says I can plug in over there.

I tell Chicky there is no outlet there or I’d already be in one closer to me.

Chicky plugs my cord back in.

Chicky sits for a minute looking forlorn wondering how someone could be so mean to her, a good looking Chicky, then leaves.

What Chicky doesn’t know is that I have a power bar.
Had Chicky not exercised her over inflated sense of entitlement and asked me if she could plug in as she needed a charge, I’d of helped her out.
How far did the entitlement extend?
Chicky didn’t come here to be a patron, just came in to coffee spot to charge her phone.

Happy New Year Old Everyone!

Privacy Or Lack Of , Anyone Surprised?

Privacy Or Lack Of, Anyone Surprised?

About a week ago I saw one of those FB Quiz listings and the quiz would tell me what words I’ve used most on FB.

It is about words and has a natural appeal to me. I clicked in and the new tab opens to the pretty much usual log on with FB and what FB data you have that you’ll be allowing the app to access.

I have my parameters set pretty tight and I really don’t care if anyone knows my name and what city I live in. Hell I promote those things myself with my online presence. I have two WordPress sites. This one for my more personal commentary on things I find that I feel belong separate from my poetry, art and coaching. Someone or entity wants to promote those sites for me, hey thanks!

My settings are tight and where I go, not many if any come with me. You take me with you on your internet excursions and those looking to follow you back and in to others aren’t going to have a lot of success with me.

With what this app does, it should be self evident as to what it is going to search to build the word list it returns.

The app ran it’s query and returned a blank. I screen captured the return and had a little fun with a friend who is also a teacher. We’d had an exchange about playing a word game. I sent my friend the screen capture and friend responded, “I can’t see them”.

I said, “That’s the point … there aren’t any to see … it returned none”. Friend got a kick out of that and me saying even FB won’t play word games with me.

You can see the screen shot and the bad sentence the app returns as well. The arrow and words in red are my addition to the screen capture. No I didn’t share it on FB.

Stupefied

Today I saw a story on this app in the Toronto Star stating the quiz is a privacy nightmare. This is the headline, “Don’t take quiz that’s a ‘privacy nightmare, tech writer warns”. The piece is a good one and well worth the few minutes of your time to read it.

The entity the story notes has a number of quiz topics and I know this because I went and searched on the named entity. If you care to search out more on the entity you’ll find there name in the story.

Take the time to delve in to your settings on any social media sight and understand exactly what you are making allowable.

Bottom line is this, when you allow access you are not just giving up yourself which should be more than enough consideration, you could also be giving up access to others.

One more thing before I close this off. This is a social media site and I’d be pleased and thankful if you share it around! You can also find me at transitionu.

And I Said # 1

And I Said # 1

I have days where I’m just not feeling very well. This is one of those days. I have difficulty getting things to flow and it frustrates me. When I have days like this where everything I write is taking to long and I find myself overly critical of style and the coherence of what I write, those are the days where I’m best able to exercise my intelligent donkey.

Today I got an age slap too. Forty years ago today Springsteen was on the cover of Time and Newsweek. Talk about having your ass thrown in to a retrospective! Said to a friend that when I was 40 I felt like 25 with something odd going on. I also said “CCR, creaky crotchety reprobate”.

Statler and Waldorf

I’m coming in to one of my coffee spots today and I see a woman with a very pinched look on her face go by carrying a broom handle. I’m congratulating myself for not asking her how long it took to get the stick out of her butt.

It’s good to have duality and today I’m both Statler and Waldorf from The Muppets.

Normally my Muppet spirit is Floyd. Now Floyd is very laid back and cool. Statler and Waldorf not so much.

So off I go out poking around and looking at stuff, FB, LinkedIn, my news feeds, etc, and look for things that I can feed to my donkey. Makes me happy and enlightens others.

If your current state of mind is open to the enjoyment of some of what I encountered and my commentary, keeping in mind of course that it is me, carry on. If you’re not open to such, now would be a darn good time to just click off. A euphemism? I’d never do such a thing. Just so you know, the opposite of a euphemism is a dysphemism.

As this is a word site lets begin with the word

Despair

Next up is from Bette Middler’s page. In the Spirit of the Divine Miss M’s Sophie Tucker jokes I added an oldie and a goodie without giving them the answer to the joke. The comment just seemed to work better this way. Remember I told you it wasn’t going to be a pretty picture if you continued on.

Next up is something I saw from Time Magazine.

stupid shit

Here’s a thought. A joint Chinese and American venture. Round up the people doing really stupid shit. The Americans can transport them to that Chinese island where the people doing really stupid shit can be left to doing that stupid shit to each other.

I’m thinking it’ll be a long time venture for both nations that both nations can be proud of together for benefiting all mankind!

Wrapping it up with this. This is a portrait I’m working on of my Guardian Angel.

LinkedIn Lookup; The Creepy Crawly App

LinkedIn Lookup; The Creepy Crawly App

LinkedIn has managed to creep me out with their new Lookup app. They did a good job of ticking me off previously as I noted in a previous post.

My original thought was to spin this a little different. When I got the email and read through the announcing of LinkedIn Lookup my first response was a creepy kind of disbelieving laughter followed by the; “are you kidding me” kind of laughter.

This is how LinkedIn introduced Sarah and LinkedIn Lookup with pictures.

  • Meet Sarah. When she has a big project with a tight deadline, she starts with LinkedIn Lookup.
  • Using LinkedIn Lookup, she searches for coworkers with the skills she needs to get the job done.
  • Sarah checks their profiles to confirm they’re the right fit, and then contacts them right from the app.
  • LinkedIn Lookup saves Sarah time by connecting her with coworkers who might otherwise be hard to find.

LinkedIn invited me to meet Sarah and I thought it be a good idea if I introduced Sarah to a good friend of mine. I had no idea they’d already met and neither knew that I knew them both, separately. Perfect recipe for disaster huh guys? You can be certain my ears will be burning because you know how women gossip when they get together.

When I introduced Sarah to my friend I said a few other things as well. I can even repeat some of them.

  • You can’t find them in their cubicle and can’t get them with office communications.
  • You’ve tried them at home and even seeing it was work calling didn’t get someone.
  • Do you really think you’ll get a response with LinkedIn’s creep you out app?

This is what my friend had to say about Sarah and I’m hoping with all my heart Sarah doesn’t find out because I wouldn’t want that dear, dear, misguided soul to think I was an unfeeling cad*.

Oh please: ”Meet Sarah…”  Was this written for a 5 year-old?
As Linkedin is utilized by adults, let us use adult-speak:
Sarah has a project.
Sarah doesn’t feel like doing said project.
Sarah realizes that said project has a deadline.
Sarah hears the ticking of the clock wasting away the hours.
Sarah feels the cold hands of Death clawing at her soul (although this has nothing to do with said project; Sarah is neurotic)
Sarah calculates that said project will cause her to miss cocktail hour later that evening.
Sarah does not want to miss cocktail hour later that evening.
Sarah throws a fit over the idea of missing cocktail hour later that evening.
{Interlude- Sarah chips her nail, and goes to manicurist to have it fixed}
Sarah makes a list of lesser co-workers onto whom she can dump said project.
Sarah uses Linkedin Spy App to seek out lesser co-workers.
Sarah does this because she’s a professional.
Linkedin is for professionals.
I am not a professional.
I am not on Linkedin.
But I do like cocktails.
Now Sarah will be able to meet me for cocktails.
The End.

There was one other thing my friend said, “Don’t keep Sarah late; it’s her turn to pay!”

I’m thinking Sarah will be paying large for this projects failure.
I’m thinking my friend is going to be hearing a lot of whining when they meet for cocktails.
I’m thinking there was more whining about the chipped nail than the missing minions.
I’m thinking my friend wasn’t really surprised when Sarah didn’t see the underlings as co-workers
I’m thinking the last pour will be on my friend and it’ll be Sarah in to a cab.
I’m proud of my friend for not leaving Sarah passed out in the lounge’s bathroom.
I hope the cocktail lounge had Sarah’s corporate credit card and my friend didn’t get stuck with the tab.
I’m especially happy my ears weren’t burning so thank you Sarah.

I am not a conspiracy theorist or a paranoid. Let me tell you though, something like another app such as LinkedIn’s Lookup that is designed to track you could get me going to that side of the conspiracy and paranoia fence right quick.

And wouldn’t you know it, as I’m working on this; another request has come in asking me to “participate” in access. This access request, it comes from … Microsoft.

Don’t Put It Back!

Don’t Put It Back!

Damn got a cold.

I got a cold. I got a fair idea where I got it too. I’m thinking I got it courtesy of some individual that picked up the wrong size lid for their coffee and then put the lid back.

Don’t be putting the lid back when you get the wrong one. Don’t be putting extras back if you happen to get a couple or three lids instead of just one. Don’t be putting the lids back on the stack if you’ve dropped a few on the floor.

Stupid and or thoughtless behaviour because what ever crap you have on your hands or that was on the floor is being passed on to someone else.

One of the coffee spots I frequent stands their patio umbrellas right beside one of the racks that holds the lids. The umbrellas do get bumped and the particulate that is on the umbrellas falls on to the lids. Now that’s appetizing!

I go to the second lid down if the rack not by the umbrellas has someone using that station.

I’m thinking I should just take 2 all the time and toss the top 1 of the 2 in the trash.

SPASM GDAS #1 – On Street Parking

SPASM GDAS #1

General Dumb Ass Shit No. 1

On Street Parking

Going to start this off with an individual that was looking to park outside one of my coffee spots. The individual parks and gets out and looks to see if they have got the vehicle in between the lines. To be helpful I tell the person when they got out they are not in the spot. This person hasn’t got the vehicle between the lines in any way. The car is to far off the curb along with about 2/3 of the vehicle beyond the marked spot. The person decides to chance it. Buys and places their ticket on the dash and leaves. Thing is, there is no wiggle room for parking enforcement on this parking violation! Why? Because the dumb asses car, and the dumb ass knew it, is parked to close to a FIRE HYDRANT.

The epitome of parking stupidity was one I saw a few days prior to the one above. Dodge SUV parked right beside the hydrant with a payment ticket on the dash. Also on the dash was a handicap permit. Yup, the Dodge couldn’t dodge the ticket and I’m certain owner of the SUV had a small cow when they returned and saw the ticket.

You do these things and you deserve the ticket. Especially the ones with the over inflated sense of entitlement.

Feel free to add to this in the comments if you got a dandy we can all laugh at!
