Obama Unsurprisingly Issues Executive Order On Gun Manufacturing

Baby steps. Baby. Steps.

You see, it's been said many times in many ways the progressive are sneaky, smug little shits.

If they don't get their way, why, it's only appropriate to use force or other means to get it - including executive orders.

Obama is no different on this front. He's pretty much done a dance on health care. Gun control was next despite - much like with Obamacare - the majority of Americans not supporting his proposal.

The political parasitical class potentially putting gunsmiths out of business is plain terrible for a nation.

It's classic 'fuck you, that's why and we know better' political elitist bull shit. Not surprisingly, the lackey pundits and sycophants in academia or in the media will find ways to bend history to fit their narrative.

It's all so sordid but for the good of the people, you see.

Obama is not enhancing America. He's hastening it's decline.

And when historians look back looking where it all went awry, it will be very easy to single out Obama (and others) for it.

And just so we're not confused by where progressivism leads have a look-see at Venezuela under that whacko Maduro:

"A new decree establishing that any employee in Venezuela can be effectively made to work in the country's fields as a way to fight the current food crisis is unlawful and effectively amounts to forced labor," Amnesty International said in a statement released on Thursday.
President Nicolás Maduro signed a decree at the end of last week that gives powers to the labor ministry to order "all workers from the public and private sector with enough physical capabilities and technical know-how" to join a government drive aimed at increasing food production.

They can be required to work in the agricultural sector for a 60-day period that can be extended for another 60 days "if the circumstances require it."


All part of the same cloth.

Intellectuals You Should Know: Ayaan Hirsi Ali

Ever hear of Ayaan Hirsi Ali? Of course not. She's poison to the left.

She discusses, among other things, in The New Criterion 'In Defense of Dissidence' the difference between Da'Wah and Jihad and how they're intertwined as well as what is a Medina Muslim (a political doctrine):

"...And there are, in the United States of America and beyond, in this incredibly interconnected world, Muslims who want to abide by Mohammed’s message beginning from Medina. They are our enemies, because they have defined us as an enemy. They are my enemies because I’m an apostate. I’m no longer a Muslim, therefore I have to be killed. They are your enemies because you are not a Muslim. And those Muslims who want to act on the Medina principles, on the principles of abrogation, of political supremacy, of the Caliphate, who don’t recognize boundaries between nations, they are our enemies. It’s very easy to define that. It should not have taken us fifteen years to get there. And we’re still not even there...."

The Destruction Of Western Civilization By Progressives Is Almost Complete



I came upon this article by one Peggy Drexler today. It's a marvelous piece of cynical gibberish about Bill and Hillary Clinton's 'surprising secret' to their marriage.

It's actually repugnant given what we know about the Clintons; particularly Bill's sexual predatory practices smoothly glossed over by the author.

But it's pretty much the norm where contemporary liberal "thinking" lies these days. Which is to say in a ditch not unlike a carcass yet to be found.

Example:

"It's easy to judge others' relationships, especially at a time in our social history when many couples are quick to call it quits.

This is not to say that all marriages should endure, even through the sorts of hurtful times the Clintons experienced. But it is to say that all marriages tell multiple stories, and that, in the end, the marriages that last are the ones that can count on mutual support, respect, love, and coming together when it really matters."
 
Not even Dante or Machiavelli could measure up to this level of cynicism even if they tried. Yes, we've arrived at the point where one of the most ambitious power couple in American politics who have accepted corruption, deceit and dishonor all in the interest of attaining and maintaining power are somehow an example for us all.

How an Ivy League professor of psychology can write such drivel directly points to the current malaise academia finds itself in.

She's not alone. In fact, she's just part of a wave of dumbasses who are in positions of power doing and saying stupid and insipid things. 

This ties into the video above. The progressive left have come full circle since the early 20th century and anyone who has given life to or supported it have played their part right up to Obama.

It's a sorry state of affairs. Personally, I don't think there's much we can do to reverse this race to the bottom. Pandering to the lowest common denominator is in a current free fall and we have to let it crash until it hits the pavement splashing like a sack of wet cement.

Only then can we begin the process of cleaning up the mess left behind by progressives. Only then will we see our version of The Renaissance.






Priest Jacques Hamel's Death Should Be Wake Up Call For Europe

The cold blooded sickening murder of a priest during Mass in France by teenagers pledging allegiance to ISIS should be a wake up call by Western Europeans. A strong message should be sent condemning this acts. Start by not making stupid excuses ( along the lines of he had marital problems!) and enforcing the law. Strong language coupled with law enforcement are just the beginning. There should never be a settling of 'this is the new norm' lest they become complacent.

So far there's been a disturbing trend by officials in places like Sweden, the UK, Belgium, France and Germany to dismiss or downplay violent acts by Muslims.That it's the progressive left doing all the bending comes as no surprise. Progressives are despicable twits when it comes to this certain of problem.

What I'm reading about what's going on in Europe (led by the lame Germans, French and British slaves to a sort of Stockholm Syndrome disease as well as political correctness) is plain disturbing made all the more outrageous by the apologists who do not seem willing to do something about it.

From where I sit Europe are acting like cowards.

Man up and don't let the murder of this priest go in vain. Let it coarsen one's will to fight back.

RIP.

I Didn't Ask You

A few years ago, or thereabouts, I recall ads from the SAQ saying 'it's a pleasure to choose for you'.

This coming from a state run monopoly.

I never asked for a bureaucrat from the liquor department to choose alcohol for me. I've traveled enough to have my own tastes. The SAQ can't possibly speak for me where personal choice is concerned which is why it shouldn't be a public institution.

Alcohol should be a private matter. End of discussion. Only then will we see the market truly reflect consumer choices and tastes.

Moreover, this nonsense of 'protecting' our racket by limiting how many bottles we're allowed to buy and bring over the border is another issue whose time has come. We should be free to buy what we want and how much we want without fearing the excessive punitive wrath of the government.

This is what constitutes 'it's a pleasure to choose' for me?

No thanks.

Step aside.


Fuck You: An Ode To Liberty

The other day I was reading how Hillary - that lying stupid twat - wanted to amend the 1A (or something like that) so that it would be illegal to criticize the government. It's a theme the EU has already made law and has found its way to North America. So before this becomes an official law here I figure to get my licks in.

If you've taken someone to court over something that was said and you took offense. Fuck you.
If you've sued because someone didn't bake you a cake. Fuck you.
If you represent the government and accost people for freedom of speech. Fuck you.
If you're the Liberal party of Canada under Justin Trudeau and look to curb free speech. Fuck you*.
If you work for the Human Rights Tribunal. Fuck you.
If you're someone that believes this to be a way to keep civility. Fuck you. You're an idiot.
If you're the sort of mind that describes freedom of speech and expression with a 'but'. Fuck you.
If you censor, seek to silence, outright shut off speech. Fuck you.
If you're a company with influence and fire people for their opinions. Fuck you.
If you've ruined a life because you were offended. Fuck you.
If you remain silent accepting an extortion racket by the government against free speech. Fuck....you.
If you actually believe in vapid progressive terms like 'diversity' and 'equality' at the expense of liberty. Fuck you.
If you're a celebrity and pick and choose where and how liberty is applied. Fuck you.
If you're a pundit that applauds government action against citizens on matters of speech. Fuck you.
If you believe there's such a thing as 'balanced speech' as enforced by the state. Fuck you.
If you're an opportunistic lawyer preying on this bull shit. Fuck you.
If you ever asserted the 1A, 2A, 4A and 5A in the United States need 'fixing'. Fuck you.
If you need a safe space and use the term 'white privilege' or 'micro-aggression' or 'cultural appropriation'. Fuck you.
If expect a trigger warning. Fuck you.
If you go to comedy shows knowing full well you're a sensitive shit head. Fuck you.
If you're law enforcement bullying little kids for their actions that amount to nothing. Fuck you.
If...
 
Fuck. You.

Fuck every single one of you for the totalitarian shit heads you all are.

If you have no liberty, you're a slave to the bureaucratic whims and decisions of the state.

Fuck you.

And you know exactly who you are.

Fuck you.

If you have a problem with all I've written.

Kiss my ass.

And.

Fuck. You.

*An extra crispy fuck you.

If Americans Want To Chart A New Course There Can Be But One Choice: Gary Johnson

Much is made about the "problem" of the American two-party system (worry not my American friends, we have a 2 1/2 party system and it's not that much better; if at all) and the lack of choice.

While it's true from a numerical perspective, it does hinge on a quality over quantity calibration and this election year one can easily conclude the quality just isn't there.

Hillary is just plain a horrible candidate and possibly - given reports and careful examination of the facts - person. She comes with so much baggage and question marks it's even a miracle such damaged goods could even be considered to run the most powerful nation on earth.

Donald Trump is basically a populist tapping into a seething under current of anger among all Americans. When you're angry and don't have much choice or options, you're gonna throw your support into the person who acknowledges it. There's a whole lot of 'yes! Finally someone says it' in American politics. Problem is, it comes in the form of Donald Trump who is not exactly a forth wright individual.

Spare me about the coming 'tyranny' and 'martial law' crap. American presidents have been acting as such as power consolidates more and more into the Executive. When the people say 'no' to something all a President has to do is circumnavigate the people through an executive order. A sort of loophole - or more direct - a big fuck you that's why depending on the issue.

Clinton's email and charity shenanigans should be enough to dissuade a voter who is considering her and Trump just doesn't exude the sort of statesmanship we've come to hope and yearn for in a political leader.

It's a terrible choice between the two.

But there is a more than acceptable option.

His name is Gary Johnson.

You can't tell me he'd be worse than these two or even with the last 16 years Bush and Obama gave Americans which was plain, plump mediocrity.

Some may argue it's 'wasting' a vote but in this case I think it isn't. If Johnson gets enough critical support this may pave the road for a process of true change down the road. This time around a good case could be made that if a vote is cast for the two traditional parties - Democrat and Republican - you're not only voting to keep the status quo in *hope* things will change but quite possibly wasting it.

Toronto 2 Montreal 0

One of the things I always felt was important and should never have a whiff of politics is with road signs on our highways. It's been something that's always rubbed me the wrong way with Quebec. Millions of North Americans pass through our highways systems and you would thing we'd extend a menial courtesy of putting some key highway information in English. Instead, it's 100% in French - just to show who is boss no less.

This fact is made to look at the more petty and cynical given signs all along the 401 and right until Niagara Falls are offered in BOTH OFFICIAL LANGUAGES.

That Toronto clearly reigns supreme as Canada's metropolis - I mean it's not even a fair fight anymore. We tend, here in Montreal, to think we're two Alpha Male cities fighting for the metropolis soul of a nation. It's not. Toronto has buried us and left us with a Beta status - is obvious to anyone of sound and sober mind can observe but that they also have now showed how things should work when tiresome language politics don't drive, excuse the pun, common sense.

Heck, even fricken Vermont has more French signs than Montreal does. 

As a Montrealer, I have to say, I'm not impressed with this city. In fact, it's quite embarrassing.

But hey.  Look at all those cool bike paths and...hip people!

As for, Helene David. Well, Mme. David is too busy fighting for silly descriptors (it makes *good business sense* after all) to be bothered with all this nonsense. After all, it's Quebec and in Quebec it must be in French.

Keep up with this insular mentality and we'll slip still some more in due time.

Floundering Minds For Faltering Times

Modern philosophy: 

'Black lives matter!'
'No! All lives matter!
'How dare you?!'

Shows you how far we've come in contemporary intellectualism. It all boils down to pointless labeling passing off critical thinking.

It's true. The Founding Fathers couldn't conceive much of how complex things turned out.

Who could possibly foresee how complicated our ignorance and stupidity would become?
