On New Zealand, Guns And Faux Virtue

I read that New Zealanders are voluntary handing their guns in saying 'we don't need these' while simultaneously I heard gun sales are on the rise after the government promised to tighten gun laws.

Of course, the latter group don't broadcast their intentions. They silently just do it. Sort of how the wealthy quietly move money around when faced with coercive or punitive measures seeking to plunder their money.

It's all part of the unseen.

This is rational behaviour. As my father would say in Italian, 'Zit', Zit'. (Zito, zito. Quiet, Quiet. Or Shhh).

This agency, of course, is problematic to the social engineering aspirations of the left. If they could stop it, they would.

All in the name of 'justice' and 'fairness' you see.

Those handing their guns in, I have to wonder about their motivations. It's never explained why they do it.

To me, it's rather odd and irrational.

It in effect says, 'I don't trust myself due the actions of others. Not only do I hand over my guns, I permit the government to strip me of my agency.'

For what?

To show once is virtuous in the face of a perceived evil?

If only we could hand out certificates so that people can display their virtue signalling.

'I handed in my guns, don't use straws and eat less meat.'

What have you done lately to help out?

****

Officials and activists in New Zealand and Australia are over reacting to the point of madness with their crackdowns. As usual, the 'cure' is worse than the disease. Scumbags.

Liberal Democrat States Look To (Unwisely) Overturn Electoral College

This is very unwise if not troubling.

Wretched and cowardly even.

My first question is what happens when 'their guy' doesn't win the pop. vote? Suddenly I think they're gonna get 'flexible.'

These states, I reckon, are operating under a false sense of justice and righteousness.

Why are they willing to push the country into this direction?

Imagine wiling to jeopardize the sanctity of your own laws for political expediency? Forgive me if one cynically concludes they're not doing this out of principle but strictly to 'stick it to fly over country' as well as to Trump.

All because of ONE election result the left didn't like.

In effect, these states are leading a path to where America's elections will always be determined by the most populous states. The Electoral College was designed to prevent such unfairness.

Why would a small state like Colorado hand over its votes to L.A.,NY and CHI? Why? Because they believe they will stay Blue forever? How insipid and unfair to voters is this?

All from the hand of a highly ideological, unprincipled and corrupted Democrat party.

Besides, how is this temper tantrum even constitutional?

This despite TWO of the greatest bull markets in American history and some meaningful reforms.

****

This is not to say there isn't merit in what they're saying. The EC has been debated since the founding of the country.

It's just that it's suspicious and weasel like how they're going about it. No debate, no discussion. They just assume they'd win.

****

You know, we were told America was racist and couldn't handle Obama. As if there weren't any valid reasons to criticize his administration. Turns out, his administration wasn't only incompetent but as sleazy and corrupt as they come. But he was protected. America let his term run.

No calls for changes in American life or politics. The Republicans didn't try and tinker with the system. They didn't holler and scream for eight years like we're seeing. They protested sure but that was the extent of it.

The Republicans did look to tear up the system. That's the conservatism in them. This was the system and it's the best they got. They respected it.

Democrats? They're ready to burn the whole thing down for no real good reason other than...Trump.

This is what the left does....destroy.

Those states who signed it? As far as I'm concerned are a disgrace and their people should be ashamed to be part of something that's potentially so divisive and dangerous.

The party that wants to unite is more divisive than they care to acknowledge.

****

Here's how this should go down. Trump needs to get a second term. Them he must release the FISA docs. Let the people see once and for all what the Obama administration did.

Go to Judicial Watch (they have a youtube channel) for details. It's worth it.

American Psychological Association get all creepy.

Yes, you read right. They actually used 'cisgender'. A term literally made up in the SJW ranks fat on critical theory and social constructs.

I'd think twice and thrice before sending my son to a psychologist if this is the route they're taking. They've become whack jobs themselves.

"Boys and men are diverse with respect to their race, ethnicity, culture, migration status,age, socioeconomic status, ability status, sexual orientation, gender identity, and religious affiliation. Each of these social identities contributes uniquely and in intersecting ways to shape how men experience and perform their masculinities, which in turn contribute to relational, psychological, and behavioral health outcomes in both positive and negative ways (e.g., Arellano-Morales, Liang, Ruiz, & Rios-Oropeza, 2015; Kiselica, Benton-Wright, & Englar-Carlson, 2016). Although boys and men, as a group, tend to hold privilege and power based on gender, they also demonstrate disproportionate rates of receiving harsh discipline (e.g., suspension and expulsion), academic challenges (e.g., dropping out of high school, particularly among African American and Latino boys), mental health issues (e.g., completed suicide), physical health problems (e.g., cardiovascular problems), public health concerns (e.g., violence, substance abuse, incarceration, and early mortality), and a wide variety of other quality-of-life issues (e.g., relational problems, family well-being; for comprehensive reviews, see Levant & Richmond, 2007; Moore & Stuart, 2005; O’Neil, 2015). Additionally, many men do not seek help when they need it, and many report distinctive barriers to receiving gender-sensitive psychological treatment (Mahalik, Good, Tager, Levant, & Mackowiak, 2012)."

It’s a travesty that you generalize these findings and appear to represent all psychologists when in fact this is only a fraction of clinicians. As a child clinical psychologist for the past 20 years, there’s a reason I’ve never been a member of this group. Pure propaganda.

As an aside, I really don't like when they lie. They take issue when called out for using 'toxic masculinity' despite having explicitly used it.

You really have to give it to the left. When get called out, then just obsfctae as he does here spitting hairs. As if any of those other terms are any better or with merit.

They invent a term - toxic masculinity - and when it gets challenged because of the choice of words they turn around and say, 'no, no! It's not what we meant! You're misrepresenting it!'

Occam's Razor: If they used 'toxic' they meant to use 'toxic'.

As a pejorative.

Know how they think.

As for the rest of this trivial trash bashing men, the notion of stoicism and competitiveness seem to also be challenged by the ASA. Stoicism, of course, was a legitimate school of philosophy in Ancient Greece and one of its more famous writers was the Roman emperor Marcus Aurelius who left us Mediations which is a profound piece of Western literature.

Competition is healthy. Nay, necessary for a healthy person. Any person. Male or female (who can be just as competitive. No? Why are they more engaged in sports than any point in human history then?).

You downplay or chastise this out and you're left with a listless and probably indifferent society. One in which gets corroded with mediocrity.

No competition, no innovation and progress.

You need to understand that @SarahKSilverman's "I Love You America" was more than a comedy show. It was a conscious effort to make the country a better place. The loss is more than just the loss of some TV.

A couple of bullies are suing Lindsey Shepherd.

The crux of their complaint is: Get this. She exhibited 'power' over them by recording their improper interrogation of her. An inquisition because she had the temerity to show - gasp!  - a video of Jordan Peterson. A person they called a Nazi and part of the alt-right without a single shred of fact or evidence which led to Peterson himself launching  lawsuit against them for libel.  And like most progressives, they feel that they should be allowed to call people names and not face the consequences of these actions. Worse, they think this is an attack on their free speech!

Leftists are functionally compromised when it comes to the concept of free speech. They're allowed to call someone a name. In this case, 'Nazi'. But if they don't support this with evidence and it can be demonstrated to be false then they face the possibility of a lawsuit. You don't get to say what you want.

Now here comes the KEY part. Where  it's not wise to t advocate for 'control of speech' via government laws, the left explicitly and regularly calls for 'hate speech' laws. Peterson is not attacking their right to speech; he's suing them for libel because it's damaging to his reputation. 

They don't realize the intellectual corner they've put themselves in. That's why they're in perpetual lash out mode. Their positions on SJW issues are untenable.

In any event,  The idea a female TA basically *threatened* these two tenured cowardly commies is preposterous. But it makes sense once you understand how these morons think. That is, in 'power dyanmics' mode.

Around the 14 minute mark you can hear her voice quiver. No kidding. How would you feel if you had to face such disgusting actions? It's precisely how authoritarian officers under Stalin interrogated people about to be thrown into the gulags.

Plastic bag bans aren't green.

"....A study conducted by researchers at the University of Arizona and California’s Loma Linda University in 2010 measured bacteria in a sample of reusable bags, finding many containing dangerous ones, such as coliform (found in half the bags) and E. coli (found in 12 percent of bags).
Pathogens can develop from leaky meat packages as well as unwashed produce. And consumers reported that they rarely wash the bags, according to the study.
"...Reusable bags, moreover, require far more energy and other resources to make, and they may produce more landfill waste. A 2011 study by the UK government’s Environment Agency found that cotton bags would have to be used 131 times before they yield environmental benefits.
As for paper bags, they do work in many cases and break down easier if they become litter. But these have their trade-offs, as well.
One study reports that plastic bags require 71 percent less energy to produce. Plastic bag production also uses less than 6 percent of the water needed to make paper bags. In addition, paper bags generate nearly five times the amount of solid waste."
"...Although there is always room for improvement, the US does a pretty good job at keeping plastics out of the ocean. A 2017 study published in the journal Environmental Sciences & Technology reported that up to 95 percent of plastic waste enters oceans from just 10 rivers worldwide."

“No one has a right to destroy property because they don’t agree with someone else,” Dugas said. “Never in my wildest dreams did I imagine being the victim of pure hate because of my belief.”
I wrote about Dugas last year when he adopted a homeless teenage boy he had discovered sleeping behind one of the retail stores where he worked. 
Dugas would like to forgive the woman.
In a statement to the court, Dugas wrote, “In this case, the right thing to do is to forgive you rather than spill hatred onto you like you did to me. Rather than wish upon you the same fear you wished upon me that day. But I really hope that you are listening. Just because I have a different yet equally as important view as you do, it doesn’t EVER give you the right to spew hate, cause fear, and interrupt someone else’s life."
The next time Dugas got into his SUV with his 15-year-old son, he pointed to the red MAGA hat still on the console.
“See that hat? It hasn’t moved, has it?” he asked his son. The teen shook his head.
“You don’t ever let anybody change who you are, or what you believe in,” Dugas told him. “You stand strong.”
Indeed.

She sure showed him, eh?

Our Dark Age Must First Pass

There's no question we're wallowing in a Dark Age at the moment. It will have to pass. Hopefully, we'll find our second wind.

A Friendly Neighbourhood Reminder

While I'm glad Wilson-Raybould seems to have sided with the rule of law, it's worth reminding she's a) still a member of the Liberal party of Canada and b) introduced Bill C-16.

Bill C-16 is the law Jordan Peterson rightly stood against for its tyrannical content launching his career into an international direction.

The Liberals, driven by their identity politics, have introduced one too many progressive laws that set aside civil liberties, among other things (see Bill 69 and 103), where free speech is concerned. 

Speaking of the party of ideologues, Trudeau has lawyered up as the SNC-Lavallin saga continues.

Of College Scandals; SNC-Lavalin And Liberal Arrogance; American Polity

I've never gone this long before posts before but a combination of my being away on vacation, the sheer amount of stupidity in the news, and good old fashioned procrastination and laziness, I lost some of my edge to keep up. Not to mention uber-frustrating. What am I supposed to do with the lunatic belief Chelsea Clinton and Donald Trump are *responsible* for a tragic and deadly shooting of Muslims? Broken minds can't be mended so easily.

Reminds me of Spurious Correlations. 

It's been a while I've been feeling overwhelmed incapable of putting down to words my thoughts in any articulate and intelligent (ahem) manner.

Regardless, we must push forward.

Let me dive right in on a couple of things.

First, regarding the college scandal in the United States. I'm pretty sure this is nothing new but it's nice some light has been shed on it. The dilution of post-secondary education has been mentioned here in the past. I'm of the opinion a good number of people sitting in classes don't belong there.

It's no wonder they churn out illiberal idiots like that girl from the Bronx sitting in Congress or the other one from Minnesota.

Affirmative Action + corruption = AOC.

****

On SNC-Lavalin. No one seems to grasp the essence of the problem: The attempted circumnavigation  and flippant attitude towards the rule of law.

Fundamentally at the core of our genius sits the rule of law and property rights. Mess with that, we cease to be who we are.

That an insufferable and remedial mind like Justin doesn't grasp this is of no surprise whatsoever. His inability to apologize or recognize what he did goes beyond what I think is acceptable political behaviour just cuts right to his character or lack thereof.

This man is not a leader of men; of a nation.

By what logical calculus does one conclude 'saving 9000 thousand jobs' (an empty and weak attempt at obfuscation) is worth sacrificing the rule of  law?

****

Turns out the DOJ did indeed instruct the FBI to not prosecute Hilary. This adds to having known for some time the Obama administration did indeed spy on Trump. For its part, the FBI then attempted a soft coup to remove a legally elected official to the Presidency.

Never mind all, what I regard to be unseemly unethical, if not outright traitorous behaviour that went along with it from perjury to Lynch meeting with Bill Clinton.

I wonder if Barr will do something about all this.

These aren't great days for justice and democracy in both Canada and the United States.

Having officials account for their actions would be a great start in restoring confidence in the system lost.

Ocasio-Cortez Shows Her True Colours By The Tweet; Is Anyone Paying Attention?

Yup. If you don’t like the , then come up with your own ambitious, on-scale proposal to address the global climate crisis. Until then, we’re in charge - and you’re just shouting from the cheap seats.

So much for 'we're in this together' and should 'work together' they like to babble about, right? How quickly they forget these progressives.
Time for Americans to tell this illiberal, illiterate, ignorant, piece of shit to go fuck herself.
Scary thing? She doesn't even have real power. Imagine if she did!
A nice reminder of why the 1A and 2A matter, no?
I don't know how anyone could possibly take her seriously and support her. Is anyone paying attention to the language they use? 'They're afraid of us!' like they're a bunch of children. That they're basically using that obscene 'Green Deal' as a Trojan Horse for expanded socialism? How about how they scare the crap out of kids with their 'we've got 12 years to live!' and then use that fear as politic pawns. Truly despicable, unprincipled lunatics.
A bunch of left-wing psychos with their cult like obsession with identity politics and dubious science are running the Democrat and Liberal parties in North America.

And arrogance. It really didn't take long for her to show her hypocritical skills.

She played a part in Long Island City losing Amazon and all that future revenue but goes out and gets herself some kind of living quarters. This is how socialists run and no one should be or act surprised when they see this sort of lack of awareness from left-wingers.

I don't know what more I can say about how the left operates. Unfortunately, to her fans and constituents she's a 'rock star'. The head spins in disbelief.

Expect more short sighted, myopic, faux-virtue, one can almost assuredly expect more stupidity from her and her ilk.

McCabe: Treason By Other Means

McCabe's book should be titled 'Catch me if you can'.

It's quite the remarkable scene. A man going on a book tour basically saying 'yeh we did it' and no one seems to bat an eye about government civil servants attempting a soft coup.

In a saner, sober and more principled time, perhaps all players involved would be prosecuted and sent to jail (in the past such behaviour was punishable by death).

Instead they get to cynically cash in, helped along by a usefully idiotic media, while stomping on the rule of law before the eyes of a broken citizenry.
