Sunday Rant – 3919

PN:

Joe’s Comment  – It is inevitable when you have 37 people in your head, only two of which you let out to play.  Life is grand.
And complicated.

 

Chief Rainbow Socks Redeux
Brownface.
Blackface.
He’s too ignorant to have red face (as in embarrassment).
Whatever you think about Stefan Molyneux (Joe and I think well of him) there is no arguing his research is thorough and his research department is damn good at researching.
After you watch the following video of Mr. Molyneux documenting the creation, the rise, and the turtle-on-a-post blunders of (who Joe and I dis-affectionately often refer to as) “Little Gay”, you may just feel a tiny tug of pity in yer heart.
Joe and I don’t.
Get the poor privileged trust fund S.O.B. off the Federal political stage.
He’s a rarity: dangerous because he has ample hubris, his face a store front for an egocentric not-so-high IQ, and has his hands on the controls of a country where the power of the PM (within the country) exceeds the power of the POTUS (within his country).
Stefan Molyneux with “The Sad Crazy Story of Justin Trudeau’s Blackface”:

Don’t believe Joe and I (and the rest of us)?
Want proof?
Other than where in the Hell have you been for the past interminable time (aka the Trudeau Tyranny), take a gander at this lengthy list of gaffs, blunders, crimes, stupidities, and head shakers committed by Little Gay (aka Chief Rainbow Socks) and his cohort.
The following “list of shame” came via my sister-in-law Lynne.
All oh! so politically correctly interpreted by the paid-off press –
> Your minister of finance engaged in insider trading – should be a 10 year sentence.
> You blew the Asia Pacific deal.
> You blew the helicopter deal with the Philippines.
> You blew the pipeline deal (he’s now trying to save himself from it).
> You blew the deal with China.
> You blew the deal with Europe.
> You invited “irregular” immigration and the taxpayer foots the enormous bill for it.
> You alienated the United States – our largest trading partner.
> At the G7 you pledged $400 million to Education around the world along with another $180 million to the Global Partnership for Education in Europe. None of it is going to fix our messed up school systems here at home. Meanwhile education costs are skyrocketing for our youth making university a mountain too high for many to climb.
> You pledged $241 million to Family Planning around the world including a $20 million donation to the Bill and Hillary Clinton Foundation (because they have integrity!). This all happened while you told vets that they were asking too much.
> You pledged $2.65 billion to climate change at the Commonwealth Leaders Summit and now you’re trying to bully the provinces into new taxes to pay for this pledge.
> You pledged $300 million to the Rohingya Refugee crisis while we have a refugee crisis of our own flooding into Quebec that you won’t address.
> You pledged $125 million to Caribbean Reconstruction while our own infrastructure in cities is falling apart.
> You pledged $650 million to Sexual and Reproductive health in Haiti and around the globe wanting safer abortions for woman while many women in our own country are left without a family doctor.
> You pledged $50 million to Palestine for flood relief when NB had some of the worst flooding in decades this past spring.
> You pledged $840 million to Syria for Humanitarian Assistance when half the native reserves in our country don’t have clean drinking water.
> You gave $10.5 million to a convicted…CONVICTED terrorist in a backroom deal that has lead to another $30.8 million paid out for three others who say they were wrongfully detained.
> You spent $4.5 billion on a 65 year old pipeline, and now the courts have ruled it shut down. Now it’s back on (at a delay cost of $250 million) – good investment for Canada you said? (And KM uses that money to build a pipeline in Texas)
> You pressured Jody Wilson Raybould repeatedly & INAPPROPRIATELY with several different high ranking officials to offer SNC Lavalin a DPA instead of prosecution for repeated & sustained corruption AFTER the former AG had determined they were ineligible for such a deal. You lied about the above having ever taken place.
> You replaced Canada’s old F-18s with Australia’s old F-18s.
> Your bizarre love of all things Castro. Is he your real Father like rumours predict?
> You imposed tough regulations and taxes on oil from Alberta, Saskatchewan and Newfoundland but not oil from Saudi Arabia.
> Every new project has to undergo strict environmental assessments…except cement plants in Quebec. That enormous plant in Quebec was allowed to be built on decades old emissions standards!
> You said that a proposed pipeline must consider “the intersection of sex and gender with other identity factors” (what does that even mean???)
> You think older Canadians should be replaced. How is that moral?
> You chase foreign companies (and their investment capital) out of the country like they have the plague.
> You chased our WW1 soldiers out of our national anthem… lest we forget.
> You continuously use identity politics…then complain about identity politics.
> You forgot Alberta was a province.
> You called small business owners “tax cheats”.
> People voice concern over money spent on illegal immigration and you call them intolerant racists.
> We have an equalization program, but you give half of it to one province, Quebec of course.
> You spent $8 million on a skating rink (vanity project) when Canada’s largest skating rink is 500 meters away.
> You added tens of billions added to the national debt while lying to Canada’s face about it.
> You groped a woman and when caught – laughed about it (MacLean’s interview) and said she experienced it differently.
> You elbowed a female MP while dragging another MP by the arm in a petulant huff.
> You renamed Fishermen to “Fisher-folk”
> Peoplekind? (international embarrassment)
> You got India to invest $250 million in Canada but we have to invest $750 million in India first.
> You compared returning ISIS terrorists to Italian immigrants and said they will be an extraordinary powerful voice for Canada.
> You let terrorists keep their Canadian citizenship.
> You spent $212,234 on artwork for the cover of the 2017 budget report.
> You think Canada is 100 years old instead of 150.
> You spent upwards to $348,000 on food and alcohol in five flights on our government’s plane. On your G20 trip to Argentina, you spent $103,000 on food and alcohol alone. How is that even possible?
> You gave Canadian taxpayers’ money to Hamas.
> You voice outrage over fake racist attacks and say nothing about real terrorist attacks.
> You took 10 vacations in a single year. Who does this??
> You spent a little over $1.5 million on the trip to India that did nothing but worsen ties. Plus paid over $17,000 to bring an Indian chef to India to cook Indian cuisine. And to top it off, invited a convicted attempted assassin to diner and posed for pics with him.
> And you’re the only PM convicted of ethics violations. (multiple times in fact)
> You allegedly destroyed the career of one of Canada’s honest military leaders to cover up possible massive corruption in ship building contracts.
> You invited Joshua Boyle, an alleged perpetrator of sexual assault and unlawful confinement for a photoshoot in the Office of The Prime Minister.
> You threaten to sue the leader of the opposition then chicken out when you realized that your alleged crimes will be exposed in court.
> You offer over $600 million dollars in subsidies to failing mainstream media outlets if they can prove to be trustworthy. You put a union who vows to destroy your opposition in charge of selecting these new “trusted” sources to receive funding. You could school the Russians in election interference.
> You pay off your friends to engage in election ads for you and get Elections Canada to pay for it.
> $200 million to Loblaws for new refrigerators.
> You made public statements of deep admiration for Chinese communism.
> You wore preposterous, inappropriate costumes during a state visit to India, paid for by Canadians.
> What moral, functioning Canadian human could possible justify voting for you?
The general answer is NO ONE, EVER!!!
Our answer is Joe and I are trying hard to be virtuous and informed.
We are now well armed with data, too.

 

Blue Collar Logic
Joe and I continue to appreciate the well grounded and sensible comments on “the culture” from Jason Siler and Dave Morrison, co-founders of Blue Collar Logic.
They will be a frequent inclusion in our Sunday Rant.
Here’s Dave Morrison with his definition and perspective on “Word Traps”:

And here is Jason Siler offering some advice to the progressive’s latest shame(r), Greta Thunberg:

Joe and I are with Jason: this child’s parents should be charged with child abuse.

 

Prager U
An exposé of Federal Dietary Guidelines.
This information has been disseminated via this Sunday Rant in previous iterations, by others – scientists, enthusiasts, medical experts.
Cardiologist Dr. Bret Scher explains what the hay is going on:

Joe and I agree wholeheartedly with Dr. Scher’s conclusion: take control of your health and find out what diet works best for YOU.
In Joe and my case, for US.
Let there be dragons!
Roasted on a spit over a roaring flame.
Yummy!

 

Jericho Green
This week (on Tuesday, September 24th) Donald Trump addressed the United Nations.  Joe and I (and all our other us’s) paid rapt attention.  You can watch it here.  We loved the message(s).
I’m sure Jericho will have something to say later today (Tuesday) or tomorrow.
On Monday, the UN had a “Climate Summit”.
Joe and I are with Jericho Green’s analysis about climate and the pushers of that false narrative (human causation):

 

Joe’s Garage
Boston Dynamics
Over 5 years ago we posted a link to a video of a Boston Dynamics military robot with 4 legs that was designed as a pack “mule” for support of ground troops.  It was called LS3:

The machine was noisy (used a gasoline engine for power), clumsy, slow.  It also scared the hell out of Joe and I.  This is NOT an innocent “what will they think of next?” kind of development.
Zoom forward a few more years and you get Atlas:

The damn thing is more agile than most humans.
We hope and pray that this is funded by the American military.
Any other country and we would make doo-doo in our panties.

Terrace/Kitimat Saga
Joe and I are a little late for mid-life crisis.
However…..
The siren call (or should it be Siren call?) of adventure caused us to break the bonds holding us in Vernon.
On September 26th we left the Okanagan for Terrace, B.C.
Call it a late-life crisis.
Here’s where Joe and I were on Thursday morning, somewhere on the Mabel Lake Road 30 km. east of Enderby, BC –
A nice spot, 10 acres owned by my friend Lorilee T., the instigator of the Kitimat Expedition.  Another picture showing the ingenious load management skills of moi –
The fifth wheel trailer is financing the fuel bill for the trip – Lorilee sold it to a fellow adventurer in Terrace.
Ava, the RV, is a hot rod.  She sports an 8.3L Cummins engine (originally a 5.9L Cummins that shit the bed) and an Alison MD3060 World Transmission.  She also has a stout receiver for towing.  How handy!
A slight detour to OK Tire in Enderby to get pumped up (thanks Arnie), and it’s off and driving for Kamloops.  We stopped at the Kamloops truck stop for a quick assessment of load security, peeing, and procurement of snacks.
Then it was on to Prince George for the first day’s terminus.  In the morning, it was still not sunny weather – I didn’t bother with a picture of cold, cloudy, rainy.
Friday evening saw us in Terrace, BC.  Late afternoon, about 5:30 p.m., we checked in to the Braun Island RV Park.
First, Joe untrailered the Escape.
Second, park the trailer, then Ava, the Rockwood motor home, was parked beside, in slot 42.
Third the 5th wheel mobile trailer was parked in slot 40, and the F350 in front of the motor home.  This is what it looked like –

Next two days we cruised around, re-provisioned, and visited Kitimat.  Lorilee’s ultimate work destination (she is a heavy equipment operator).  The LNG pipeline, smelter expansion, and mega project projections project out 10 years.
More next week.
Joe and I might even have a surprise or two to reveal.
For the record, we have had two days of sunny skies in a row.
Don’t know if that is a record in Terrace.

POLITICS, POLITICIANS, WACKJOBBERY, HUMOROUS, STUPID

 

 

 

SUNDAY SERMON

This week the sermon originates from 2015.
Johann Hari explains the misunderstanding surrounding the word and concept of “addiction”.
Seems that “chemical hooks” are not the story.
Adaptation to your environment may be the problem or solution:

Joe and I appreciate the perspective shift.
Our problem is we don’t think addiction exists.
Otherwise there is no free will.
Which we DO believe exists.
So it goes with TED talks…..

 

WEATHER (OR NOT)

This week the weather in Vernon, BC was not sunny, warm, or cloudless.
At least, up to Wednesday.
Joe and I (and all our others) left Vernon and overnighted on the Mabel Lake Road.  Thursday was also punky: rain, cloud, huge wind.
Friday rolling into Terrace, same.
Then, a miracle on Saturday.
And Sunday.
Just how far must one travel following the sun?
