Daily Derp: Orwellian Twits Running Twitter

What is it with social media and its eventual assault on free speech?

It's rather ironic a medium that fundamentally rests on OPINION is going to 'shadowban' tweets. It's all so...Orwellian.

Twitter is, get this, setting a 'Truth and safety' council (of which a SJW will sit on. Because nothing says 'balanced' speech as interpreted by a social justice warrior. I'm sure they'll be level headed and apply 'common sense' logic against their enemies) to monitor speech. Mostly libertarian and conservative I am sure.

The company makes no money and if I'm an investor I'm concerned.

Very dumb.

But they're not alone. Witness a 'Wtf?' moment at The Onion.

This is what we call in the business 'jumping the shark'.

Sigh. One less humor site to visit now.


Speaking of dumb, Montreal Mayor Denis Coderre has figured out his legacy is tied to making Montreal green as much as possible.

By 2018 the city will ban plastic bags.

The Mayor says it will make Montreal a 'model' for other cities.

Yes. A ban on plastic bags will make sane and scientifically literate Montrealers very proud.

Unintended consequences here we come!


Speaking of dumb - hey it's a busy day! - Iran adds to Rushdie bounty. 

And Obama thinks these nutcases can be reasoned with. That was some deal he signed.



News on climate change! And I'm afraid Coderre and the alarmists aren't gonna like it. Which means, this is a good thing.

"...Because CO2 is only a trace gas in the atmosphere (approx. 0.04%), if CO2 change does not cause significant temperature change, it cannot cause significant climate change. Thus the CO2 change from burning fossil fuels has no significant effect on climate and climate sensitivity (the effect on AGT of doubling CO2) is not significant. ..."

"...Others that have looked at only amplitude or only duration factors for solar cycles got poor correlations with average global temperature. The excellent correlation comes by combining the two, which is what the time-integral of sunspot number anomalies does. Prediction of future sunspot numbers more than a decade or so into the future has not yet been confidently done..."


Williams College President Adam Falk:

"Free speech is a value I hold in extremely high regard..."

Let me stop you right there because I can smell a 'yeah but' in there. Let me spare you any embarrassment.

No you don't you fucken liar.

I'm sick and tired of listening to these censoring dickheads lie. Admit you're against speech you don't like and I'll respect you...maybe.


"PELLEY:You talk about leveling with the American people. Have you always told the truth?

CLINTON:I've always tried to. Always. Always."

Got that? She 'tried'. Now whether she can or will, well, that's clearly another story.

At this point, if you support Hillary you're missing a moral compass.


Venezuela exporting lotsa gold.

All is good.


Chavez, like any good socialist, raided the gold.

And to think progressives admired that scoundrel Chavez.

But you're mistaken if you think confiscating gold is restricted to far away places. That good old New Deal liberal FDR (in addition to interning Japanese-Americans and imposing a curfew on Italian-Canadians; much like his liberal colleague up here in Canada PM Mackenzie King) issued executive order 6102:

"is a United States presidential executive order signed on April 5, 1933, by President Franklin D. Roosevelt "forbidding the Hoarding of gold coin, gold bullion, and gold certificates within the continental United States". The effect of the order, in conjunction with the statute under which it was issued, was to criminalize the possession of monetary gold by any individual, partnership, association or corporation."



No one takes food as seriously as the Italians.

"Renato Bialetti, the coffee king whose name is synonymous with the iconic aluminum stovetop esspresso makers, died last week at the age of 93.

In an unusual and strangely befitting tribute, the ashes of this well-known Italian coffee impresario were placed in a giant Moka pot, which he made famous, at his funeral this week in Montebuglio, Italy."


Movie stars.

Where would be without them?

Arnie Di Caprio Grape meet Chinook. 

"It was scary. I’ve never experienced something so firsthand that was so dramatic. You see the fragility of nature and how easily things can be completely transformed with just a few degrees difference. It’s terrifying, and it’s what people are talking about all over the world. And it’s simply just going to get worse."

Too funny.

"Those who have not the warm, invigorating Chinook winds of this country, cannot well comprehend what a blessing they are. The icy clutch of winter is lessened, the earth throws off its winding sheet of snow. Humanity ventures forth to inhale the balmy spring like air. Animated nature rejoices. "Calgary Weekly Herald, 1900

Remember folks. Leo has a platform to spew his ignorance.

You know you're weak when you get scolded by Justin Zoolander Trudeau.


What's the difference between cement and mortar?
