Medical Assisted Dying Bill C-14

Medical Assisted Dying Bill C-14

June 09, 2016

If you are so inclined, you can email your MP.

I have dealt with chronic pain for more than 27 years. For the most part I have done so well.  What I have is degenerative so it only gets worse.

The Bill was rejected by our Senate and sent back to the sitting Liberal Government amended. My only comment on the process has been, “Get it right”. Getting it right has not happened. Government getting it right involves making decision on who is eligible while avoiding legislation on who can and are to be executed. Not an easy task to perform while negotiating a slippery slope.

There are many of honourable intent that weighed in. I’m certain there are a few of those with less than honourable intent that also contributed to the process.

This is not preaching and is reality. This is consideration that the able of mind and body have to give credence to. If you haven’t dealt with chronic pain be it physical or mental you do not know what it’s like. You cannot fully understand the condition. You cannot be sympathetic because you haven’t lived with it. By living with it I include the families of those who get involved with the direct care of a stricken family member. You can be empathetic and that is appreciated.

This is about me. I shall be as clear as I can so that everyone understands what I think and believe are the differences between expressing, “Just shoot me” on a really bad day and declaring, “It is time to go”.

I had a, “Just shoot me” day yesterday. The weather turned fast. It got cold and damp and I felt it big time! I’ve had days like those before and I’ll have them again. Days like that go with the territory. I don’t just understand the condition. I know the condition because I live it. Every damn day physically and emotionally, I live it.

I’ve had the odd night where I have felt that if I didn’t wake up, that’s okay.

Through all these years I’ve worked with my Doctors. Sometimes my Doctors have thought I’ve been too rigid in the choices I make for myself. There have been times I’ve thought the Doctor wasn’t listening to me.

I have a history that is documented and verifiable. I’ve rejected and accepted the possible and proposed. I’ve tried things and then rejected them. I’ve tried things that have worked, do not interfere with the parameters I’ve defined and continue to make use of. I make the choices for myself and always have. No one else gets a vote.

At some point, if I don’t die first, I will have to make a choice as to when enough is finally enough. I already know what the parameters and conditions are that will trigger the action to terminate my life. Of course I hope that is a decision I never have to make. The choice to terminate your own existence cannot ever be easy or the will to live that humans have would not exist.

I have a set of parameters I’ve created that signal, “It’s time to go”. No one will have to make a decision for me as to whether or not the time has come to go. Someone may have to push that plunger for me, that person, or any person will not have to make a decision on whether or not the time has come.

There are others that have created their own definitive as well so determination to terminate is not left to another person.

Giving the choice to terminate your life to someone else or burdening someone else with that choice is abhorrent to me. This includes legislating Doctors to assist.

Do I believe Doctors should be involved to give statement to an individual’s physical and mental state? Yes I absolutely do. That doesn’t mean a Doctor should be forced by legislation to pull your life plug.

In the moment there is much rhetoric regarding those who are suffering now. I understand and appreciate that fact. Rushing something through to satisfy the Court or those who believe there is immediate need to alleviate the suffering of some is to my mind the wrong thing to do.

Yes the “Assisted Dying” or “Right To Terminate” matter has taken a long time to resolve. Foot dragging also must be discouraged and I believe that was part of the intention of the SoC when they gave a June 6, 2016 date for the legislation to be done.

It’s taken a long time to get this done and it is partly out of fear. Fear of making a mistake.  Fear of being responsible for a wrongful death. I believe to some degree, fear of God in Heaven too. All the things we’ve been taught from our religious and secular belief systems playing a part. No one wants to screw up just in case. I’m just not seeing a problem with those fears and hesitancies as it quite wonderfully displays our humanity.

The Senate removed the, “Near Death Requirement” in the Bill as it was sent to the Upper House. The, “Near Death” requirement was both unconscionable and conscionable at the same time. How’s that for duality! You can read the Senate’s explanation here.

This is a chance to get the Bill all the way right or as close to right as such a Law can be. The SoC could possibly be petitioned for extension.

If a temporary measure needs put in place, do it.

I’ve got myself and my mind right.

For myself and others I demand, even if it takes a bit more time that Government get it right!

If you’re having a hard time getting it right and you obviously are, you let me know and we’ll talk!

ADDENDUM:

I asked for help to read/proof this story before posting. I’m lucky to have real good help.

If you care to know the root cause of my chronic pain just use the link.

I was asked for my thoughts. Even my thoughts are more question than answer.

I’d have to go deeper in to the Bill as it sits. There was/is serious consideration that assistance be part of a Doctor’s mandate. I see it the same way as a doctor refusing to perform abortion, a matter of personal ethics. My view of Doctor assistance stops at the carrying out of the act.

There are moments when I think if someone shows up and says they choose to opt out you just let them do it. I come by that through experience.

There is a young man, well young by my standards who visits a coffee spot. His name is XXXXXX. He can walk and when he does he needs support and the motion is all herky jerky. XXXXXX has serious speech problems as well. I do not know what the affliction is but I’ve sat with him on occasion and XXXXXX mentally is all there. XXXXXX likes the girls too.  ;-}

People like XXXXXX who may not be able to communicate exactly what they want are the ones we have to protect.

For me, I can take a lot on the physical side and cope very well with the mechanical problems. I don’t know what my physical threshold is. No one does until they hit it. If I lose the cognitive, it’s time to go, period end of story.

It’s A Duck!

It’s a Duck!

I don’t care how you choose to see something for yourself. I do care that when brought to light the choices aren’t sugar coated. I do care that an action is appropriately and correctly called what it is.

Going through my news feeds and I see a story on, The Toronto Star, “Some university students seeking sugar daddy”.

This is the comment I made, “Tell me how this isn’t prostitution? Sexual favours for money. The woman is a hooker, period end of story”. I read the story after I made my comment and reading the story confirmed exactly what I thought and said!

Here is a paragraph from the story, “Now, almost three years and several sugar daddies later, Kashani is set to graduate from Villanova University free and clear, while some of her peers are burdened with six-digit debts”.

The story does note that the same arrangement can be had by men at, “Sugar Mamma” sites. I’m thinking if we call them “Cougars with blingefits” we’re on to something! Let’s be real here, how many under 40 got the coin to make it happen?

Some of the posted comments I saw by women flabbergasted me. Comments that condoned the “Sugar Daddy” agreement.

I truly wonder what these women would say if it was their father, or brother, or son, or significant other who did such a thing and/or got busted for availing himself of a prostitute. What the money is used for by the individual receiving the cash is irrelevant. Can’t you just imagine the conversations?

Let me see if I can make up a short conversation up for you using the premise that “Male Helper” has arrived home after being arrested and “Sanctimonious Female” who had condoned the “Sugar Daddy” behaviour by women knows. I am presuming of course that those two people are talking to each other and the guy was allowed in to his own house.

Male Helper: I was just helping a poor unfortunate girl with tuition fees.
Sanctimonious Female: You went out and got a hooker!
Male Helper: No! I was helping and I distinctly remember you saying you understood those poor girls need.
Sanctimonious Female: You went out and got a hooker!
Male Helper: I remember you saying you didn’t see anything wrong if both people agreed.
Sanctimonious Female: YOU WENT OUT AND GOT A HOOKER!
Male Helper: I did no such thing she’s a student in a cash crunch.
Sanctimonious Female: YOU WENT OUT AND GOT A HOOKER!
Male Helper: Hypocrite.
Sanctimonious Female: Don’t yell at me I’m sensitive.

Sure that exchange is a semi ridiculous argument. Arguing that the woman in the Star story isn’t a hooker is completely ridiculous.

Someone tell me what should be done if the woman reneges on the agreement?

If a man decides to just take what he believes he’s entitled to because he’s paid the woman for it is he guilty of a crime? We got a whole new set of circumstances with repercussion now don’t we?

If a man is paying for the apartment and it is in his name he’s rightfully entitled to have his guest removed if that guest won’t remove themselves. Is the woman going to walk in to a court or tell police there is a sexual agreement in place that allows her to live at said apartment?

In the story it is said the guys paying this woman were more like friends. If that’s the rationalization or justification she wants to make to better cope with what she’s doing, so be it. I can appreciate and fully understand friends with benefits. I also know that money isn’t exchanged between friends with benefits.

Some of the comments I saw by men stated they knew of women who were living the “Sugar Daddy Life” to maintain a standard of living and seeing a “Boy Friend” too. Frankly I see prostitute and client. A couple comments touched on guys who found out what their supposed “Girl Friend” was doing.

So many questions requiring so many answers and not a damn one of those answers good.

Very simply, if it walks like a duck, talks like a duck and flies united like a duck, it’s a duck! Call it what it is. You can figure out exactly what kind of duck later.

Fly United Sketch

Now if this duck eats some other duck’s bread stick because the duck is starving, I’d be empathetic and want to help that duck. If said duck goes after the bread stick because it wants a two story nest, I aint in the least empathetic.

Before I close this off a couple of things for the women.

First, girls lemme tell you, there is something worse a man can call a woman than the “C” word.

Second thing and it is a truth, “Bros before Ho’s”. If you have availed yourself of a Sugar Daddy and a guy ever finds out, he will tell his Bro. When that happens, those two words that are beyond the “C” word will come out.

And women thought guys weren’t sensitive!
That would also be D U C T tape not D U C K!

Justin Trudeau Will Never Be Ready

Justin Trudeau is emotionally controlling and emotionally controlled and he can not shake it! He doesn’t even try.

Justin Trudeau has not performed to expectations let alone above expectations.

Recognizing and giving credence to what someone was exposed to during formative years is not bashing! Hiding those experiences and refusing to consider them in behaviour is short sighted and unfair.

Trudeau had a couple fine examples of dysfunction to learn from at formative stages. Having your family life spread across the nations news papers must have been a just wonderfully wholesome experience.

Justin Trudeau is a manipulator. He goes from the emotionally controlling passive/aggressive of “Everyone should be a Feminist” to outright grandstanding aggression in the House.

Sun Cov May19-16

It is the duty of the Speaker to instill order in the House with the assistance of the Sargent at Arms if called on by the Speaker. Trudeau knows this! Trudeau did not call on the Speaker to restore order and took it as his divine right to do so himself. Trudeau never should have been anywhere near the line to cross it and he damn well knows that too!

This guy loves to lay on the guilt trip. He conducts himself as if on a mission of divine right. I don’t doubt for a second Trudeau believes he knows better about anything and everything than anyone else does. Not hard to figure out where he learned that wrong behaviour.

I go back and forth on Trudeau wanting to be loved and wanting to be an elitist King. Again, not hard to figure out where these mindsets comes from.

Bottom line, Justin Trudeau is nothing but an actor who flounders when he gets off script. He isn’t quick and he isn’t smart. He’s the PET of Gerald Butts and has been for a long time. You go have a look at what Trudeau allows Butts & Telford to do with caucus.

I posted A Perturbed Canadian’s Parody on April 27. Use the links, one goes to a G&M story on Trudeau’s “Emotional Complexity” and decide for yourself on Trudeau 2.0, honestly.

My “Parody” was written well before Trudeau’s antics in the House.

Justin Trudeau, he’ll never be ready.

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

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

 

Secular or Religious; Read Multiple Sources

Secular or Religious; Read Multiple Sources

Lets begin with The Toronto Star is a Liberal propaganda page. In all fairness right?

I swear the Star only takes the odd shot at Prime Minister Feminist so the Star can say they are presenting all sides when they really don’t.

This is the story that ran in, “The Toronto Star” on April 19, 2016. The link opens in a new tab. Canada’s news media are contributing to mistrust of Muslims

John Honderich and John Cruickshank like to have their publication tell people how they should think and feel. This makes John Honderich and John Cruickshank emotionally controlling. Trying to exert Emotional Control is wrong on so many levels! If they didn’t like it, it wouldn’t be happening.

Former Toronto Star Columnist “Haroon Siddiqui” calling Post Media “Black”. Gee this makes me think of a few questions? “Do you want the Columnist job back” is one. Throw a few shots in at rivals and you are looking good!

No where in the story does “Siddiqui” address the factors impacting the Non-Muslim. He wants those that are not of the Muslim faith to, “Don’t find excuses to attribute crimes by Muslims to their religion. Use the same standard for them as for other people.”

No where in the story does Siddiqui show empathy or understanding for anyone but Muslims. You want it you gotta give it, and he doesn’t.

In the story it says a tiny minority, a few dozen in Canada wear the niqab. I live in the core of Toronto, I’m not buying the statement of a few dozen nation wide. I am not buying the statement made by the writer of the story. What I see when I extrapolate and add in probability theory makes me believe different.

Hey if you wanna seal yourself for whatever reasoning suits you, I really don’t care. In the winter, to my mind, makes damn good sense! So this isn’t a year round issue cuz we not of Islam do the same thing when we venture outside in winter.

I do care about the ability to identify people that have committed a crime. Come on folks, we can’t be chopping off a hand from everybody we can’t identify just to be sure the perpetrator is punished now can we.

Islam is a Theocracy. I’m reasonably certain if certain Christian Fundamentalists could get away with it they’d want a Theocratic society as well. The Islamic Republic of Iran is an example of the Theocracy. Saudi is an Absolute Monarchy and not a Theocracy. North Korea is an Autocracy.

I get it that it isn’t all Muslims. Just like it wasn’t all Germans, Japanese or Russians. I get it.

I also get that there are Muslims fighting against those that want the world turned in to their Theocratic way. I thank you for the job you are doing against that oppression!

What is the difference with Islam? The difference is that Islam is not a country. There are no easily recognizable borders. For some the niqab or the head scarf stand as the uniform, the border between us and them. Not a surprise and not a secret. And yes, not right.

The story notes there many kinds of Muslims. Fair enough there are many kinds of Christians too.

Lets define what it is that has many wondering, thinking possibly, or flat out believing any and every Muslim is, if not active wants the world as an Islamic Theocracy.

These are all things a goodly number of people that are not Muslim know and the things we know are of legitimate concern to those that like their heads just where they are.

Something else we infidels wonder is this, “why would a Muslim care”? No matter how it goes the Muslim will be here. If anyone can lay a bigot tag on that thought with what is going on in the world then I have to believe you’re looking to be controlling and shut people up.

If you are Muslim and cannot empathize with the “why would a Muslim care” statement then you either just don’t care because you’re good either way, or you want that Theocracy.

Education, “The Taqiyya”. That document makes it permissible with the expectation to lie. Apparently Islam allows no civilians either. If you are aware of these things how can you not question?

Non Muslims see a well documented ideological plan that has been around for about 1500 years. They see that ideological plan being enacted.

The plan has both hard and soft tactics. The attempt to gain Sharia Law for divorce here in Ontario that was quashed a soft tactic. There are 2 cases, one in Ontario and one in The Philippines where those convicted of terror are appealing because they were not tried under the law of the Quran also soft tactics.

Changes in Law, both are tactics to establish a foothold for that Ideological Theocratic Society in other places around the world.

Secular and religious alike, 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

My personal position is that all the religious books are manmade and not heaven sent.

Take a look at how the book of Islam 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

We of no faith and those of “Other Faiths” are cognizant of those things. The plan is there to be viewed by any who care to take the time.

I have never seen a Muslim show that understanding and I should have. I trust everyone got that when I said, “I haven’t seen it”. Muslims give it voice and recognition. Let those not of Muslim faith know you understand and care about the concerns.

Y’all gotta read. The information is there to be had if you look to multiple sources and read.

I’ll say it again. I know it isn’t every Muslim involved in that ages old plan. To some though, it seems that there are those of the Muslim faith aren’t doing nearly enough to help.

I’m tired of the emotionally controlling trying to shut people down to serve their own agenda.

Honest and open and understanding dialogue to lead us to an honest and open and understanding world that has freedom of religion and freedom from religion!

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”.

Et Tu Trump

Et Tu Trump

A friend posted up an image of a sculpture they loved. I  looked at and went, “nice art”.

I looked at the face of the sculpture closer. I bounced what I saw and asked if it was just me seeing it. Friend said no they saw the same resemblance I did.

I did go looking to see if I could find who did the sculpture without success. Hey if you looking at this know the sculptor let me know so I can give the credit.

What I saw in the face of the sculpture gave me a, “Holy expletive deleted” moment.

I do and have been following what our good friends south of the 49th parallel have happening with the upcoming Presidential Election.

The face in the sculpture, it struck me, akin to Nero only it isn’t Nero and is Donald Trump.

I saw Dr. Ben Carson endorsed Trump and then regretted it.

Y’all can decide for yourselves on the likeness and the relevance for America in 2016.

Trump fiddling as America burns.

Et Tu Carson, Et Tu?

Komrad America

Komrad America

I was poking around on LinkedIn this morning and saw a post that I just had to share with, “Good Friend” who is American. I bounce many things off “Good Friend”.

What I said to my friend. You can click on the image from the posting to better read it.

I recall the Cold War and not just from books and television. The United States of America had air bases in Canada high in the arctic. Had to keep an eye on them commies don’t you know. It was good for Canada cuz who knew what them red devils would do and if it ever started up! A goodly number of missiles would of went right over top of Canada for U.S. delivery.

I said a number of years ago give them time, the USSR is a young nation they’ll come towards freedoms and capitalism. I also said around the turn of the century that America’s freedoms are eroding and they are turning in someways to communist thinking to curtail liberties. This lessening has also taken place because of what I see is a lack of tolerance and respect.

In 20 Years

This is the question I posed to, “Good Friend”.

So in twenty years is Canada going to need Russian air bases to keep the Americans away from taking over those radical free thinking Canadians on the American doorstep?

O’ Canada, Pay Attention

O’ Canada, Pay Attention

What you are seeing is commentary I left on a story of today’s date. The story is something that has been going on since Canada’s election in October.

Controversies that didn’t have to happen are still going on and will go on because of grandstanding (which I consider a seriously stupid action) by our new Prime Minister.

Putting people at odds, what a wonderful way to begin for a new leader.

What I’ve commented ties to this story:
Interim Conservative Leader Ambrose Year End

Our new Minister of Defence to his credit understands and recognizes that if you Bullshit Canadians they will recognize it and call you on it.
Junior, this Canadian is calling you on your Bullshit.

Stupid Shit 02
Because the shit storm Junior unleashed didn’t have to happen. Y’all get that? The shit storm didn’t have to happen The grandstanding dumb ass was showing off and he rightfully deserved the criticism received. That was one of two major gaffs within 24 hours of the polls closing.
 
With his big show off mouth he took merit appointment out of play in favour of gender placement. Me, I don’t care if it is an invisible bunny and a giant seahorse in cabinet if they got there by merit. With what this dumb ass did, he left speculation wide open that there are those in cabinet that do not deserve to be there.
 
The dumb ass knew election was coming and should of had his shadow cabinet in place ready to move in to the respective positions (give or take a few won or lost seats) after the election. All he had to do was say we had the people in place ready to move in to cabinet with a win and we’re putting them there. Done without fanfare and BULL SHIT!
 
Not Junior, he had to show off and I don’t for one second believe his, “because it’s 2015” wasn’t a planned response because he damn well knew he’d get asked about the placements on the gender announcement.
 
The other major gaff was our CF 18’s and that shit storm didn’t have to happen either. The dumb ass had no business saying Canada’s commitment was being withdrawn on election. The Liberals were not government and not privy to all the information. Nor should they have been privy to all information, wait for it, because they were not the government.
 
I’m sure you all are as well informed as can be and read what took place on an ISIS offensive. If you’re not, go read! In a nutshell our CF 18’s played a very important part.
 
You want another major gaff? Telling caucus that if they are told something by Butts and Telford to treat it as if it came from him. Well you know what folks, those advisers are not part of the government. If the Prime Minister has something to tell caucus, then get your ass with caucus and tell them. Check the link on previous advisers. I’m not real comfy with policy making coming from advisers if that is indeed the case.
 

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.
