Quote Of The Day

The American Spectator on Castro. Conservatives have their moral and intellectual compass properly calibrated.
"...Castro with evasive pieces on his passing. Even Amanpour got into the act, interviewing international figures about the “unclear” legacy of Castro. She can find nuance in Castro but not in Trump.
Journalists who wouldn’t have survived a day in Castro’s Cuba treat Trump as an enemy of press freedom (for such grave offenses as not informing his press pool that he was going out to dinner). They gasp at Trump’s health care plans, while praising Castro’s hospitals. They freak out over Trump’s “Muslim ban,” while minimizing Castro’s suppression of religious freedom. They couldn’t have voted in Castro’s Cuba but demand a recount in America (Jill Stein called Castro a “symbol of the struggle for justice”).
After Trump won, the New Yorker’s David Remnick nearly fainted from fear. It was a “sickening event,” a “tragedy for the American republic,” and a victory for “authoritarianism” at home and abroad, he wrote. But Castro never elicited such breathless denunciations from his magazine. Castro was merely a “controversial” figure. His totalitarianism generated less outrage from it than Trump’s tweets.
Now the media, never too worried about the jingoism of Castro, is harrumphing over Trump’s flag-burning comments. It can forgive nationalism in foreign leaders but not its own.
Meanwhile, the press continues to push the storyline that Trump’s coming administration is causing the great and good of the world to tremble, a claim to which the American people rightly shrug, especially since many of these international luminaries appalled by Trump’s inauguration will soon turn up at Castro’s funeral."
Know thy enemy.  From the comments and quote of the day:
"From the New York Times, April 30, 1945:
Berlin (NYT)- The controversial reign of the German Leader came to an end today, as reports are received that Adolf Hitler took his own life. His term in office was marked with significant transformation for the German people, though critics suggest that his treatment of certain minorities would mar his legacy. The depressed chief executive will be remembered for his fierce commitment to the German people and their bloodlines, and his life was also marked by his affection for dogs, particularly his own Shepherd Blondi, who preceded him in death. Advocates for vegetarianism and non-smokers will also continue to point to the charismatic politician for the example that he set for those who choose these lifestyles."

This, of course, is of no surprise for literate minds. The left (including celebrities) were enamoured with both Mussolini and Hitler.

Not sure why they're so given to demagogues; so vulnerable to emotional and statistically manipulation.

Of Not Accepting Results And Queen Bees



Progressives like Jill Stein and their absurd recount crusade and protests remind me of bees who don't accept a Queen Bee. It's quite a showcase in petulance and ignorance this spectacle of faux rage.

Italy And Austria: Nothing Making Sense

Austria voted for the Greens while Italy rejected Renzi's constitutional reforms.

The last thing Austria needed during this time in the wider context of the European Union was a left-wing Green party to steer it. My hunch is things won't go well. It rarely does when the left is in power. As for Italy, some are wondering if this outcome (which led to Renzi's resignation) could possibly lead to an 'Italexit' down the road.

Either way, it was a good day for the left-wing today in both countries.

France meanwhile is tilting to the right under Le Pen.

Good times ahead in Europe.

Important Referendum In Italy

Once again, Italy is at the centre of European politics and history.

Today the country votes on Prime Minister Renzi's constitutional reforms. If Italy votes no it may pave the road to its eventual exit - Italexit - from the EU and trigger a banking crisis along with Renzi's resignation. If yes, it will call for, among other things, cuts in spending and a calming signal to the markets.

If a 'No' vote comes in it has the potential to have a bigger impact than Brexit. Italy is a core and founding member of the EU and one of the world's largest economies.

Italy, a country that has been a reliable and staunch supporter of a unified Europe since its inception, holds the future of the EU in its hands.

Real Trouble For Canada Ahead And The Wrong People Are In Power

A major problem facing Canada is this government having invested in a world view that is likely going to increasingly run contrary to what is going to happen in the United States under Trump and possibly the UK under May. Canada is a part of this 'transatlantic Anglo connection' and it may find itself on the wrong side on a couple of issues. Moreover, it's worth keeping an eye out on countries like Germany, France and Italy in their upcoming election and whether there will be a 'Trump effect' on their election outcomes.

A couple of philosophical things to keep in mind. Under Trump it's clear his administration is going to handle taxation differently from Obama and may cut them across the board (all classes and corporate). There may even be a simplification of the tax code which has become burdensome on taxpayers. This will spur growth in the U.S. economy. Contrast this to Canada's decision to increase taxes and spend in a contracting economy.

In addition, Trump has appointed a climate skeptic to the EPA. Again, this is contrary to Canada's over-dedication to international climate change accords that are not beneficial to our economy which will negatively impact our growth. Canada is a resource rich and with resources still playing a crucial role in our semi-diversified economy. Trudeau aims to impose a national carbon tax will have further repercussions while Trump will probably increase oil production. The Americans quietly increased them under Obama and are poised to increase this still. In other words, the one area where Canada has a competitive advantage of sorts, it will cede to the United States. The pipelines have never been more important now.

Never mind Trump may make changes to Obamacare and possibly repeal it outright while prepared to negotiate with companies to keep business in the USA.

What does this mean for Canada? It means the Liberals are going to need to pivot, adapt and change whatever plans they had in place for this country

Or else it may put us behind the eight ball.

Do I have confidence in the Liberals?

Not based on what I've seen thus far. They're more focused on vapid narratives than governing based on realities. 

Daily Derp: Fox Made Me Do It

Let's open up with the really good stuff.

That public interest being quotas.

Fleming nailed it.

If you only have time to read one link here make it this one.

******

To expand on the above.

"As that essay was going to press, Heterodox Academy member Amy Wax sent us the text of an astonishing letter written in 1969, at the dawn of racial preferences, from Macklin Fleming, Justice of the California Court of Appeal. Judge Fleming had written a personal letter to Louis Pollak, the dean of Yale Law School. Fleming was concerned about the plan Dean Pollak had recently announced under which Yale would essentially implement a racial quota – 10% of each entering class would be composed of black students. To achieve this goal, Yale had just admitted 43 black students, only five of whom had qualified under their normal standards. (The exchange of letters was later made public with the consent of both parties; you can read the full text of both letters here.)
Judge Fleming explained why he believed this new policy was a dangerous experiment that was likely to causeharmful stereotypes, rather than reduce them. His argument is essentially the one that Jussim and I made 47 years later. Here is what he wrote:
The immediate damage to the standards of Yale Law School needs no elaboration. But beyond this, it seems to me the admission policy adopted by the Law School faculty will serve to perpetuate the very ideas and prejudices it is designed to combat. If in a given class the great majority of the black students are at the bottom of the class, this factor is bound to instill, unconsciously at least, some sense of intellectual superiority among the white students and some sense of intellectual inferiority among the black students. Such a pairing in the same school of the brightest white students in the country with black students of mediocre academic qualifications is social experiment with loaded dice and a stacked deck. The faculty can talk around the clock about disadvantaged background, and it can excuse inferior performance because of poverty, environment, inadequate cultural tradition, lack of educational opportunity, etc. The fact remains that black and white students will be exposed to each other under circumstances in which demonstrated intellectual superiority rests with the whites.
But Judge Fleming went much further. He made specific predictions about what the new policy would do to black students over the years, and how they would react. Here is his prophecy:
No one can be expected to accept an inferior status willingly. The black students, unable to compete on even terms in the study of law, inevitably will seek other means to achieve recognition and self-expression. This is likely to take two forms. First, agitation to change the environment from one in which they are unable to compete to one in which they can. Demands will be made for elimination of competition, reduction in standards of performance, adoption of courses of study which do not require intensive legal analysis, and recognition for academic credit of sociological activities which have only an indirect relationship to legal training. Second, it seems probable that this group will seek personal satisfaction and public recognition by aggressive conduct, which, although ostensibly directed at external injustices and problems, will in fact be primarily motivated by the psychological needs of the members of the group to overcome feelings of inferiority caused by lack of success in their studies. Since the common denominator of the group of students with lower qualifications is one of race this aggressive expression will undoubtedly take the form of racial demands–the employment of faculty on the basis of race, a marking system based on race, the establishment of a black curriculum and a black law journal, an increase in black financial aid, and a rule against expulsion of black students who fail to satisfy minimum academic standards."

Where were we? Right, the derp.

Soooo, will Obama blame Republicans and Fox for this?

"President-elect Trump is going to be inheriting the worse fiscal situation of any president other than President Truman.."

Why They Lost

It's really not that complicated.

The Democrats "assumed" they knew what a part of the American population wanted without bothering to understand the other parts. Believing the latter to be fools not worthy of their leadership. In this, they committed fatal faux pas filled with presumptions and projections.

Trump on the other hand, free of traditional political machinations that cloud the pulse of a people, simply gauged where he thought the American people were headed and - zing! - hit the tones and notes that reverberated down the spine of the country.

This wasn't about racism or Fox or whatever short-sighted, misleading and unproductive excuse pimped and pummelled into the minds of the Democrats and its base.

Nope

This was a simple case of one party too arrogant and one man who played that to his advantage.

The key now for Trump is will he engage in a 'to and fro' with the American people and govern accordingly or will he be tone deaf so as to believe he knows 'what's best' like his predecessor did?

FDR: Not Dead Enough

When I was in school FDR was painted as a hero. The man who pulled America out of a recession and gave a really cool speech committing America to World War II.

That he interned and imposed strict curfews on Japanese, Italian and German Americans (like Liberal leader Mackenzie King did up here) was just one of those unfortunate byproducts of fighting a war.

As I continued on my journey into history, I soon learned the accepted main narrative of FDR wasn't so perfect. A second look at his economic policies persuasively suggest he prolonged The Great Depression (Obama is said to have pulled America out of its second Great Depression and even there we see this is just not so as America struggled under his Presidency) not to mention him confiscating private gold holdings where he ordered Americans to sell it at $20.67 per ounce only for him to turn around and sell it at $34.

I think they call this 'loan sparking' tactics on the street.

In any event, how a supreme elitist like FDR became the 'people's President' is nuts to me.

He eroded their wealth and trampled on their civil liberties.

Let's put FDR in proper perspective where his progressivism is concerned.

Castro: Not Dead Enough

Not surprisingly, the CBC, CTV and other main networks have done a piss-poor job of reporting on the death of Cuba. I'm not sure why they insist on trying to paint a 'balanced' view on his death since it comes off as forced and trivial. They can't possibly expect principled and well-read minds to accept their drivel can they? Absent from their reports - or at least glossed over with slick editing - is the simple fact Castro was a murderous thug. You'll never see pictures of him shooting farmers in the head because they're too busy fabricating his story.

If you need reminding about how things work in dictatorships.

You know. Each time I see traditional newscasts I wonder how anyone could possibly watch it. The internet has completely made a farce of what they report. They still think they can edit their way into their version of the truth. And when you take their 'truth' and match or verify it against what's really happening you see first hand just how irresponsible, out of touch and much of a joke they've become.

The bottom line is none of these people would ever live a single day under Castro's regime. Sure, they love Cuba's beaches but that wasn't Cuba. That was make-believe; a figment of their stale imagination.

Personally, after I left Cuba, I was disappointed in myself for my money went to a tyrant who mistreated human beings. I was complicit in his crimes against humanity for one week.

Castro. He can never be dead enough.

Gruesome Parasites

Most gruesome parasites (no, not socialists and communists):



Notice the part where pharmaceuticals are giving free vaccines/medicine/pills until these parasites are eradicated.

Meanwhile, we have to listen to people like Bernie 'Grandpa Gulag' Sanders and his merry band of paranoid anti-capitalist sowers of discord bash big pharma for their greed.

Not sure what he's trying to prove or gain by doing that, but we don't hear enough of stories about how 'evil' corporations (as if innovation and research and development isn't already enough) behind the scenes ultimately do right by humanity.

The more you demonize them, the more you threaten their ability to do their jobs.

These Are Not Your Grandmother's Post-Graduate Degrees

Good write up at Liberty titled College Don't Make You Smart

Ain't that the truth.

"...The Times was not alone in its unmerited self-esteem; the ability to criticize oneself was in remarkably short supply almost everywhere this year. Republicans seemed incapable of reflecting on the huge majority that Trump might have had if he’d hesitated to make an absolute fool of himself on countless occasions. Democrats could not really imagine that anyone not a bigot or a dumbass tool of bigots could possibly have voted for Trump. In this delicate moral situation, I find the Republicans less guilty than the Democrats, who not only refused to consider their own failures but violently projected them onto others.

Of course I’m referring to the wave of hysteria, ordinarily self-induced, that is still sloshing back and forth in modern-liberal America — hysteria about the actions of Trump, who so far has taken no action, not yet being office. It is striking that demands for tolerance and diversity should be voiced by mobs in the streets, by employers persecuting employees who voted the wrong way, and even by merchants rejecting the business of customers who became part of the wrong ideological formation. I don’t like to give Freud any credit, but his idea of projection does seem appropriate. I don’t know how else to explain the passionate intensity of people who violently denounce all who disagree with them, because of the latter’s vicious intolerance...."

"...The exemplary fact is this: in 2012 Obama carried one of the counties in which Youngstown, Ohio, is located by about 28%; in 2016 Clinton carried it by about 3%. In 2012 Obama carried the other county by about 22%; in 2016 Trump carried it by about 6%. Look up the history of Youngstown, which has less than half the population it had in 1970, and you’ll see why. Alleged “hate” has nothing to do with Youngstown and its vote. Lack of real jobs, regulation of every puny detail of life, insults to local culture delivered by high-paid snots in Washington, the perception that Hillary Clinton is a low-level crook who wouldn’t be welcome at a family dinner — those things are sufficient to explain the change. Invoking the sudden “racism” of former Obama voters is just going to turn the 25 or 28% difference into something like unanimity."

I pull this spectacular quote from the article and post it because it's just too...well read it:

"Virginia Heffernan, Ph.D., Harvard:
We don't have to wait until she dies to act. Hillary Clinton's name belongs on ships, and airports, and tattoos. She deserves straight-up hagiographies and a sold-out Broadway show called RODHAM. Yes, this cultural canonization is going to come after the chronic, constant, nonstop "On the other hand" sexist hedging around her legacy. But such is the courage of Hillary Clinton and her supporters; we reverse patriarchal orders. Maybe she is more than a president. Maybe she is an idea, a world-historical heroine, light itself. The presidency is too small for her. She belongs to a much more elite class of Americans, the more-than-presidents. Neil Armstrong, Martin Luther King Jr., Alexander Fucking Hamilton.
Hillary Clinton did everything right in this campaign. . . ."

Castro Creating Free Education And Health Is Not An Intellectual Play In Assessing His Tyranny

Sigh. You know the drivel; the drill.

Moron goes on TV or pens article going something along the lines of 'It was sad. Yes, he was controversial and brutal but he gave free education and health!'

This defunct line of logic and people who espouse it should be shamed and cajoled mercilessly. Trudeaulogies on Twitter have done a great job mocking it.

Do people realize how insipid they sound when they say that?

The news does its part to push this pathetic and immoral narrative. The other day we were watching CTV news reporter Genevieve Beauchemin cover Castro's death in Cuba. I paused it and told my wife how it was going to go down.

-Show long line ups to Fidel's coffin - check.
-Interview someone in line who loved Fidel - check.
-Show empty streets as if nation is in mourning  - check.

Like the people had a choice. 'Long-running President'! Kinda easy when you're the only option, no?

The whole report was a nauseating example of how dishonest the media is. I honestly don't see or understand what they have to gain in painting him in any good light. When they interview a kid's opinion of him of course he or she will talk about him giving them an education - they're told that.

And you don't ever get a sense of this from the media. They just stupidly take it at face value and feed it to us as if we're going to buy it. Well, progressives will but not anyone with a sharp, skeptical moral mind.

They use all the wrong buzzwords. "Remembering" the man and his "challenging legacy" as they sanitize the death and mayhem he caused to achieve this lout's lousy legacy.

Not unlike when they say 'we don't know the motives' or 'it was senseless' or 'these are lone wolf attacks' whenever there's an Islamic terrorist act. Of course we know the motives and to ignore it is to overlook the truth. In doing so, we fail to understand their grievances. Hint. Western powers need to scale back its interventionist activities in the Middle-East.

I digress.

This *should* be my last post about Castro as I don't want to give more than is needed for his tyrannical and narcissistic life.  and his brutal police state.

I would like to focus on three things (excuses) people like to use as a strawman (to say nothing of false equivalences like we saw with Colin Kaepnernick and others like him) to cover up his atrocities.

-Castro gave his people free health care and education.

In the same newscast I mentioned above there was a report about acts of vandalism against small shops in the east end of the city. Apparently, it was connected to a public housing protest. One of the persons interviewed said, 'It's too bad this happened but sometimes we need this to bring awareness to the problem'.

Sound familiar? It should. 'I believe in free speech but..."

Nothing like a 'but' to justify an improper or illegal act. Other than that, I'm surprised she didn't jump in with a Krugmanesque 'Broken windows fallacy' by adding, 'well, at least they'll have to hire people to fix those windows AND we get to raise awareness for our problem!'

Ugh.

Anyway. That he gave free (propagandized) education and (sub-par) public health is not a moral justification for the destruction and crimes he perpetuated against his own people. As if education didn't exist before him and that *he* was the only one capable of bringing education to Cuba. It's absurd and part of the brainwashing.

Do people listen to themselves? Let's play 'how would you like it' for a second. How would you like it if suddenly some left-wing loons led by the fiery Bible-belting populist yelps of Bernie Sanders and Elizabeth Warren managed a coup and decided your ill-gotten house (in their eyes) was no longer yours and that it became exclusive property of 'la patrimony'? And what you say, they decided all the capitalist men needed to be shot in order to promote their Jacobin reign of terror?

You wouldn't like it, right? Well, that's what happened in Cuba. No one is saying Battista was an angel or that things were great but it was a helluva lot better but more importantly had a better chance at improving than ending up in the hands of crazy revolutionaries who rape and pillaged the nation's human and capital resources and left it in abject poverty. Free shit is not liberty.

None of you (save for a few true believing commies) who talk romantically of Castro would tolerate any of that.

But look at the crumbs we gave you! Forget your grand father's property and life. THIS is your life now!

Double ugh.

-Cuba was poor because of the U.S. embargo. 

Obviously not trading with an economic behemoth 90 miles from you is not a good scenario. However, Cuba was still trading with the EU, Russian/Soviet Union and Canada. Not exactly slouches in their own right.

This reminds me of Iraq and the U.S. embargoes. Iraq was still trading with those same countries. It's just that Hussein was not letting food and medicine get to his people - surprise.

-He faced down U.S. imperialism and hundreds of assassination attempts.

And what did he achieve but misery for his people? He can't even claim a Pyrrhic victory. He also was brazen and enough of a lunatic to ask the Soviets to launch a nuclear attack against the USA. What he think this could achieve is beyond me (and quite frankly don't give a shit what a dirt bag thinks in such matters) but the Soviets were smart enough to place weapons on the island but not give him the codes. I think one of their goals was to have the American remove their missiles pointed at Russia from Turkey.

In any event, it's ironic that people who complain about America's "imperialist foreign wars" praise Castro. Though many of his victims were Cuban, more were Latin American and Africans who died as a result of the numerous proxy wars he started and funded. 

Hey, "their" guy was doing it, right? Sorta like the anti-war left who suddenly disappeared in 2008. Peace came so there was no work left, right? Obama's wars in Afghanistan, Libya, Egypt and drone killings without due process? They're can't hear you with hypocrisy stuffing their ears.

Khrushchev responding to Castro's request:

"In your cable of October 27 you proposed that we be the first to carry out a nuclear strike against the enemy's territory. Naturally you understand where that would lead us. It would not be a simple strike, but the start of a thermonuclear world war.

Dear Comrade Fidel Castro, I find your proposal to be wrong, even though I understand your reasons.

We have lived through a very grave moment, a global thermonuclear war could have broken out. Of course the United States would have suffered enormous losses, but the Soviet Union and the whole socialist bloc would have also suffered greatly. It is even difficult to say how things would have ended for the Cuban people. First of all, Cuba would have burned in the fires of war. Without a doubt the Cuban people would have fought courageously but, also without a doubt, the Cuban people would have perished heroically. We struggle against imperialism, not in order to die, but to draw on all of our potential, to lose as little as possible, and later to win more, so as to be a victor and make communism triumph.

Translation: You stupid, fuck. You certifiable retarded nut case. What part of 'Cuba would have been incinerated' before you could pick up your shovels and pitchforks don't you get, fool? And the Soviet Union is not gonna risk its own mad march for Cuba. 

These are the 'Big three go-to' lines apologists for Castro, Fidel: The 20th century's B-list tyrant extraordinaire.

Even if you were to concede those points, it does not absolve him of the depraved actions he took against the Cuban people.

There is no 'grey area' or nuance. It's a fool's play to think this. Thinking otherwise points directly to a broken moral and intellectual compass as it specifically dishonours and makes light of his victims.

Leave all these pathetic narratives to left-wingers, simpletons and basic cable news media. Leave the real thoughtful writing to people who actually know.

******

Recap:

People need to adjust their moral and intellectual compasses if they find any reason to support Castro on any level. It's very simple. There is no 'grey area' or nuance. That he provided a (sub-par) health system (one in which no North American would accept in their own country) and propagandized education is NOT an example of him caring for his people. He cared about his own power as a means to control Cuba. Hello, Cui Bono 101, people. Here we have the story of a tyrant who raped and pillaged a nation's human and capital resources while torturing, imprisoning, killing and leaving them impoverished. Next time, for that one second, you look to find a positive in the 20th century's top B-level tyrant, think of his VICTIMS.

******

For the heck of it, because the same people drooling all over Castro's evil soul tend to wear another evil puke's t-shirt, here are some Che quotes:

"Here is the electrifying example of a people prepared to suffer nuclear immolation so that its ashes may serve as a foundation for new societies. When an agreement was reached by which the atomic missiles were removed, without asking our people, we were not relieved or thankful…"
"
The black is indolent and a dreamer; spending his meager wage on frivolity or drink" or "We're going to do for blacks exactly what blacks did for the revolution. By which I mean: nothing."

Leftists: Profoundly evil and anti-human so easily given to charm and empty violent rhetoric under the guise of the 'greater good'.  Tsk, tsk.

******

"Fidel Castro is dead. My heart aches. It really does. Today, on my day off, I set to get to routine chores I’ve neglected the last year or so, but the sky is grey and grim; like my soul. I couldn’t stop thinking about this towering, charismatic individual who fought on all our behalf. Yes, all of us. Sometimes it takes a great man to put the weight of human misery on his (and one day her! I hope and pray that in my lifetime I will see a woman as strong, brave and endearing as Fidel. One who could chomp on a cigar as crustily as any man! This is the dream; the hope Fidel left us) shoulders to lift us up and shout, ’See?! SEE these people! You can’t ignore them as they are hoisted upon my shoulders! I will keep them there until you all face your own filthy hypocrisy and greed!

This is Fidel. Fidel is hope. Fidel is love. Fidel is loyalty. Fidel is joy. Fidel is class. Fidel is liberty. This is the the lesson he has left us.

He has given more to freedom than any leader ever could. By way, of literacy and health care he left people a gem  of what true freedom looks like. He made sure it was not a privilege but a right. And he could only do so as a strong dictator. There was no need for ‘democracy’ because democracy lets in too many wolves to exploit the people. The system of government IS Fidel. He could take a decision on a dime if necessary. There is no need for Cuba to sign treaties on climate change. All it needed was Fidel. 

Fidel was a pit bull. A ferocious jaguar. A raging rhino in the face of imperialism. Here was this one man. This incredibly special man standing as if 10ft tall facing down the mightiest and most corrupt of all nations the United States of America. His pointing weapons at that satanic country was the single greatest act of defiance of the 20th century. In that one act, he summoned all the oppressed to nestle in his soul. 

I’m shaking as I write this I kid you not. This is how important he was for humans of all creeds and races! 

And what of the dead and imprisoned? Do you not see it sometimes takes blood and tears to achieve a caring society? Those people did not want to partake in the experiment and could not be trusted or called upon to bring forth a new Cuba wallowing in the utter death and despair brought on by Batista. Sometimes you need to crack heads to reach your goals and objectives. But Cuba wasn’t a revolution for an island; it was a global civil war. I wish people could just see the big picture. 

He did not live long enough to see his revolution through. There’s much work left to be done. Literacy can still achieve more. Achieving a perfect healthy society within its grasp. It will be up to his successors to continue the dream. The path he charted for Cuba. It won’t be easy. 

The charm and beauty of Cuba is in its rustic nature; its architecture and ever endearing classic cars! You have not lived to witness the genius of a Cuban playing his trumpet on the hood of an old car as the sun sets behind him! Oh, what I’d give to see it one more time! The sense of humanity I felt that day could never be replicated. And it is because of Fidel. What is decadence to uninformed Western capitalists, is vitality and innovation to us! We fight to keep at bay the dark and static forces of Western capitalism. We must keep our soul pristine. 

Don’t make Fidel’s work go in vain! I will heal. And when I do repair my aches and pains, I will think back on the promise of Cuba and Fidel’s dignified existence.

Te amo, Fidel!"



Trudeau To Not Attend Tyrant's Funeral; Problem Is Governor-General Will

Canada's lead foreman Justin Trudeau will not be attending 'that guy who shall not be named' funeral - I'm not sure why he's having one since he's going straight to hell. While it should end this sad saga it doesn't.

The Governor-General David Johnston - a symbol of this country - will.

Not acceptable.

A low level official would have been more appropriate. Personally, I would not have spent a red cent and send anyone but you have to be pragmatic. These are, after all, red Liberals in power.

For shame.

When the Liberals were acting like a bunch of corrupted and anti-American lunatics under Chretien I was pretty embarrassed. Back come the Liberals and they've once again thoroughly humiliated this country by way of Justin's ill-thought words regarding a tyrant from Cuba.

Justin keeps babbling about 'Canadian values' when in reality he's just talking about his values and attempts to project them onto us. I don't share a single value he and his merry band of vapid left-wingers espouse; the predictable and boring static economic spend and tax policies of the Liberals couples with potentially low growth may not end well for them.

See, to come back to that murderer and his death, I think of all the people rotting in graves and the bottom of the ocean unclaimed by their families or languishing in prison or who were tortured by an evil man and his minions.

To talk highly of him on any level points to a lack of humanity as far as I'm concerned.

Couillard called him a 'giant'. I have a better term: A piece of shit.

For shame indeed.

Castro In Pictures

He and Che were nothing buy a couple of murderous thugs. This is what apologists of any degree tacitly accept. Notice Castro's two Rolexes. Any questions?


On Public Health

As long as health is in the hands of the bureaucracy, it will never improve or achieve any of its goals and objectives.

It's a simple question of supply and demand and the government is incapable of filling this mysterious economic phenomena.

And why should be obvious to people.
