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.

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.

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.

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.
