Daily Derp: Canada Day Edition

Happy Canada Day!

Friends of the HMCS Haida - the last Tribal Class Destroyer in the world.

And it's Canadian.


(Not so) Happy Canada Part II.

Our racist, Residential Schools past. 

"...In his treatise entitled Education – Free and Compulsory, author Murray Rothbard wrote that during the latter part of the 19th century, the Kaiser of Prussia regarded children as rightfully being the property of the state and believed that it was the duty of the state to educate them into becoming loyal and productive citizens. Compulsory schooling began in Prussia, and many governments around the world subsequently embraced the ideal of compulsory attendance in state schools, where the nation’s children would acquire the basic knowledge they needed to become productive citizens.

The idea of compulsory schooling took hold in Canada as well, and government officials and church leaders regarded it as their sacred duty to convert aboriginal children into loyal subjects of the Crown and have them embrace Christianity. Government officials forcibly removed thousands of young children from their families and made them wards of the Crown who were to be housed and educated in residential schools."

"...In Canada, government and church officials regarded First Nations people as savages, hence the brutal treatment of native children at residential schools. Both German and British colonial administrations shared a common sense of contempt toward aboriginal populations, which were often subject to inhumane treatment. During the years of colonial rule, the native East Indian population had suffered through successive episodes of famine that were the direct result of the colonial administration’s actions. During India’s colonial era, several million Indians starved during repeated famines caused by policies administered and enforced by the colonial office.
The majority of colonial era bureaucrats were educated in the arts and the social sciences at universities where the leading academics were sympathetic to the theory of eugenics that held that people with dark skin were inferior to people of British and European origins. That sentiment guided the development of social and economic policies that related to native peoples who lived under colonial rule. It would also have guided the government policy that forcibly removed young children from native Canadian families and placed them in residential schools."

"...The abuse of children that occurred at Canadian residential schools are the result of once well-intended government policies that were based on very flawed ideas. One key idea involves the appropriateness of government initiating forcible coercion against peaceful citizens, allegedly for the benefit of society. The abuse is obvious, blatant and obscene.

Another, less dramatic example is compulsory school attendance for all Canadian children at schools where they are at high risk of being bullied by peers and where they are required to learn at the pace set by the institution, totally disregarding each child’s own unique learning style. In education, home-schooled children almost consistently out-achieve their cohorts who attend state schools, in academic contests. In modern government schools, the destruction of people’s lives is more subtle and more discrete than the obscenity that occurred at residential schools, but it is no less real."


Hillary's (funniest) emails from Business Insider.

Being a politician. Not rocket science. Or English Major for that matter.

Sheesh has the quality of communication slipped that much?

The one from Mikulski is my favorite one.


Just making a point.

Man flies Nazi flag on his property.

And a fair one I submit.


Cook medieval!

Look, we've entered a Dark Age, what, with all the hysteria and irrational reactions to various events.

 May as well eat like they did back then, no?


Speaking of dark ages:

She's got it exactly wrong. The progressive left is not up for debate and completely intolerant of opposing views. 

Hello. They want to put 'climate deniers' in prison. Hello. They don't feel people, as free moral agents, have the right to not bake cakes for gays. Hello. They're going after Churches for not wanting to perform gay marriages. Hello. They control the gun control narrative. Hello. They will ban, boycott, and censor anything they don't like. Hello. They will force schools to cancel guest speakers they don't agree with. Hello. They have essentially made sex a crime - see Mattress Girl and Duke lacrosse. Hello. They don't seem to understand the unintended consequences of their economic demands. Hello. They're masters of victim baiting. Hello. Trigger warning. Hello. They call for the removal of statues like the Jefferson Memorial. Hello. They take people to court for having different opinions - see Mark Steyn. Hello. Towns police how people dress now! They don't want to pay debts they freely took - see Lee Siegel deadbeat writer who recently wrote about justifying not paying his debt. No responsibility needed! Hello. McFly. Social Justice Warrior. Hello.

Is more likely to accept Bloomberg's nonsense on food and trans fat bans?

Hello. Hello. Hello. Earth to Rebecca.

"For these reasons, I’m tired of reasoned debate about politics—at least for a day or two. I don’t want to be friends with racists, sexists, or homophobes. And I don’t want to be friends with Conservatives either."

This sentence along proves her own intolerance. Academia ain't what it used to be, eh?

Stop pretending you're tolerant. Some of us read right through the left-wing jargon.


How the Italian mafia is swallowing Europe.

If you didn't think this was happening, please report to the 'Naive' room.


That didn't take long. The ACLU has suddenly decides Churches can be sued for choosing to not abide by the gay rights law.

And so it begins.

Remember when they assured everyone they had no interest in going after the Church? Yeah, just like smoking bans were never supposed to expand into the private sphere, right?


You reading Rebacca Roache?


(R) Justin Amash on the gay marriage ruling:

For thousands of years, marriage flourished without a universal definition and without government intervention. Then came licensing of marriage. In recent decades, we've seen state legislatures and ballot initiatives define marriage, putting government improperly at the helm of this sacred institution.
Those who care about liberty should not be satisfied with the current situation. Government intervention in marriage presents new threats to religious freedom and provides no advantages, for gay or straight couples, over unlicensed (i.e., traditional) marriage. But we shouldn't blame the Supreme Court for where things stand.
To the extent that Americans across the political spectrum view government marriage as authoritative and unlicensed marriage as quaint, our laws must treat marriage—and the corresponding legal benefits that attach—as they would any other government institution. So, while today's Supreme Court opinion rests upon the false premise that government licensure is necessary to validate the intimate relationships of consenting adults, I applaud the important principle enshrined in this opinion: that government may not violate the equal rights of individuals in any area in which it asserts authority.

Coming to Canada and Quebec?

"Doctors in Belgium are granting a healthy 24-year-old woman who is suffering from depression the right to die, as she qualifies for euthanasia, even though she does not have a terminal or life-threatening illness.
The 24-year-old female, known simply as Laura, has been given the go ahead by health professionals in Belgium to receive a lethal injection after spending both her childhood and adult life suffering from "suicidal thoughts", she told local Belgian media.

Laura has been a patient of a psychiatric institution since the age of 21 and says she has previously tried to kill herself on several occasions. She told journalists: "Death feels to me not as a choice. If I had a choice, I would choose a bearable life, but I have done everything and that was unsuccessful." The date of Laura's death is yet to be decided."

Feel sorry for her. Hope she's getting all the help she can get before taking her precious life.


Is the left intimidating Chief Roberts?  He sure seems to like rewriting laws above the law!


Douche gonna douche.

Nice guy.

F. (uc) King Alexander who is he?

"It was announced on March 27, 2013, that Alexander would become president of the LSU system and chancellor of Louisiana State University A&M effective July 1, 2013.[8] Some criticism occurred over the way the Louisiana State University Board of Supervisors had conducted its search to fill the position of president of LSU after John V. Lombardi had been fired from it under alleged influence by Governor Bobby Jindal and as Alexander was named the sole finalist for president of LSU. The decision was met with a unanimously negative vote of confidence by LSU's faculty senate against the LSU Board of Supervisors, but Board of Supervisors chair Hank Danos asserted that Alexander "was clearly the right guy for LSU."[9] The Faculty Senate's vote of no confidence in Alexander's hiring noted that Alexander had never been a tenured full professor at a major research university and that the graduation rates at CSULB were lower than those at LSU

As more and more unqualified people get into major positions of power, expect more of this crap. From the judiciary to politics to academia. Hopefully business will hold out keeping the flakes out."

The patients will run the asylum now.

Paging Ms. Roache.


Go ahead. Come after me.

*waits for thinkpieces about how more mental health services could prevent white people from acting how they’re conditioned to act* — Ida B. Robinson (@zfelice) June 18, 2015

Could you imagine if a white professor said something like 'black people are conditioned to be lazy and violent?' Obama would be all over it like the little opportunistic cynic he is. The media would be howling in disgust.

Itsokay dearie. Rebecca likes your kind. She'll be your friend.


Nice chart about the situation around Greece. Who owes what to whom?

As for Greece, it's a culture that wants free shit but refuse to pay for it. It had to stop at some point.

Bailing Greece out is like bailing GM out.

Will discuss about this in the next post.
