~ STOP STOPWAR.CA– Stopwar.ca is sponsoring the visit to Canada of the British extremist George Galloway. Stopwar.ca claims to be a “Peace/Anti-War coalition” that “oppose[s] the use of war as a means of settling international disputes.” But George Galloway is not a man of… peace. He provides financial support to the mass-murdering Islamist terrorist group Hamas, supports Hezbollah and the genocidal Iranian regime of Ahmadinejad, and sides with the perpetrators of genocide in Darfur.. Please email as many of these individuals and organizations as you can to ask them why they are supporting an organization that is sponsoring this ambassador of hatred, violence and repression, George Galloway ….

Oh, I guess I’ll be groped for the holidays,
‘Cause you know I’ve got to fly a long way home,
So I’ll pause at security and stand in place:
Since the TSA won’t let me if I don’t.

I’ll walk right by the naked scanner with my hands above my head
Like the victim of a mugging or some crime,
And down the hall someone’ll look right at my figure without clothes:
It’s degrading and insultin’
Gee, you’d say that it’s revoltin’

But I guess I’ll be groped for the holidays,
‘Cause no matter how far I have to roam,
If I won’t let the TS Agents have their way,
For the holidays, I won’t be going home.

What’s that you say about the Constitution? Fourth Amendment? Well,
If you want to fly those rights don’t mean a thing,
See, the terrorists might win if TSA can’t cop a feel
Even Granny might be sittin’
On some C4 in her knittin’,

So let’s all just be groped for the holidays,
Like good mindless little sheeple-bleating drones,
We’ll put up with abuse in a million ways,
For the holidays, if it means getting home.

~ BEWARE WHEN ‘CRAZY‘ becomes the new normal. When Binks & Teh Binklings went stateside in the Summer of ’09, I wrote about the security procedures so encountered– the Canadians not so bad; the Americans over the top.

We were heading home. There I was at KC Airport, middle-aged elf with a cane, two kids in tow– and simultaneously attempting to (1) unshoe & devest myself, (2) whilst getting tickets & boarding passes out, but NOT whilst (3) losing kids, (4) dropping cane or baggage or papers, (5) falling over sideways, (6) losing luggage or other valuable personal property accidentally or otherwise. It being a pre-roosterish 5:25 in the ante meridian, I was vaguely awake and rumbly in the innards, and thence broke into a sweat. A-HA!

Pulled aside to the special cubicle, where unfriendly woman gives me evil eye, grills me again, and uses beepy-wand to check if my body is concealing contraband, explosives, or undocumented aliens. Decides I’m a sleepy & sweaty middle-aged guy with two kids & cane and too much stuff to do at once. Quel surprise.

Coulda Been MUCH Worse

Under the radar, new search protocols went into place in U.S. airports on October 29th. Happy Hallowe’en indeed. The creepy kind.

Blogger & author Erin & her baby went to the Airport in Dayton Ohio to take a usual flight, but got some free sexual assault a.k.a. “new enhanced full body patdown search procedures” along the way. Word is, hundreds of ordinary Americans have been recently attacked this way by airport TSA security officials.. and if you complain? Congratulations! You’ve just been upgraded to the full body cavity nekkid room, strangers with rubber gloves treating you like a convicted criminal, and no candlelit dinner & a movie beforehand!

Fun With Make Believe

The War On Terror as it relates to post-9/11 airport security is a kind of meaningless pantomime, where we foot the bill via taxes and ticket surcharges. Hundreds of millions of people lose countless hours and dignity and privacy so governments and airlines can claim they are “doing something” to prevent another 9/11 kamikaze-style event by enthusiastic members of a non-specific religion.

It would be nice if profiling would work– but no system is foolproof. Still, feeling up or taking naked body-scans of Granny instead using them on, say, Ahmed from Yemen does seem beyond idiotic.

After all, if the profile was middle aged elves with canes, I’d just have to take my lumps. But since the modern profile is everybody with a heartbeat, we all have to do the little dance of make-believe that such indignity, assault on the person, and foolish intrusion on privacy makes the world a better and safer place.

Ask yourself: do the Israelis use the bodyscan machines? Nope. They aren’t foolproof, and give you a false sense of thoroughness & security.

Let’s Get Real

Anybody with a little trial and error and forward planning could get into an airport behind the scenes and do all sorts of bad stuff.. or figure out how to do bad things on or with a plane. The modern security sideshow, likewise, is a joke insofar as a serious & skilled & organized bunch of bad guys could do all sorts of bad and dangerous things to society– or to airplanes, of that matter– if they were truly serious and careful about it. You know, like making or stealing a nuke, let alone taking down a plane. Or hiding weapons where the sun don’t shine. Or bombing giant backed-up crowds at airports, all waiting for nudie scans or groping.

Thankfully to this point, most of the people attempting to redo 9/11 have been mostly noobs, nitwits, wannabes, and failures.

Assume The Position!

Some mindless TSA drone feeling up a blogger– after checking if the baby-bottles for her baby are actually grenades or otherwise some fiendish concoction– does not make you or me or the world a safer place. It makes us proto-slaves for an all-powerful security-state, where freedoms and human dignity are whittled away at, using terrorism as an excuse. This new TSA Airport Groping/ Naked Pictures of Granny program just makes clear the insanity.

You bin warned. ~

 


 

Apples & Bananas

~ ITEM: Lunatic Transgender Bill sails through committee, By Alphonse de Valk

~ ITEM: Tell your MP to stop the transsexual “Bathroom Bill”

~ ITEM: FIRST-PERSON: Confused about gender? Sadly, some are

~ ITEM: if you’re open to an opposing viewpoint on what this bill actually does and on transgender and transsexual people in general, you may be interested in this

~ ITEM: What “Julia” said

~ ITEM: A VERY peculiar engagement; Charles blames his ghastly predicament on the UK’s then top expert on transsexualism, gender psychiatrist Dr Russell Reid; Whoops! Bizarre story of a double-sex-change patient

~ ITEM: Transexuals are mentally ill castration fetishists who need treatment, not ‘tolerance’; Transgenderism: another fad for rich, privileged elites

~ ITEM: Aristotle’s well-known definition of truth (Metaphysics 1011b25): “To say of what is that it is not, or of what is not that it is, is false, while to say of what is that it is, and of what is not that it is not, is true.”

~ IN RESPONSE to a page I posted about an NDP-sneak bill in Parliament, came two swift replies. So-called trans-genderism has entered the militant rights-game, it would seem.

There are two basic issues here: first, how to deal kindly with people who suffer genetic, hormonal, mental, identity, or other problems. Secondly, to insist on truth: or as Aristotle & Plato taught, “to say of what is that it is, and of what is not that it is not, is true”.

Where Binks Gets Told

Our second correspondent, “Julia”, says:

“I’m a transsexual woman.
I’m legally a woman in Canada. It says “F” on my birth certificate.
Therefore, I can use the woman’s washroom, a legal right given to me, along with all other women.”

When a baby is born, what does the doctor say? “It’s a boy!” or “It’s a girl”; “to say of what is that it is.. is true”.

A genetic but surgically mutilated and hormonally treated man who dresses and acts like a woman, and legally changes his name to a female name is.. a man. That the LGBTQIXYZ political movement has mutated Canadian or provincial law to attempt to redefine reality, and to rename one thing as another because of medical excess, or the psychological assertion of “gender identity”? War on reality. Denial. Teh “Not So Much, Akshully”.

Remaking Unreality

That government enables such things by altering birth certificates and other documents is a remarkable sign of the enslavement of our ever-busy bureaucratic do-gooder class to the ever-changing demands of political correctness. When is a family not a family? When is a marriage not a marriage? When is a girl not a girl? When is a duck not a duck? Apparently all-powerful government defines or undefines that for us lowly mortals, and the new truth is law, and disagreement is bigotry and illegal and you’re a Neanderthal troglodyte!

Whatever Bill C-389 may be, (1) it’s an NDP thing, so look out; (2) it’s redefinitional of reality, so it’s insane; (3) it’s government telling us what to think and do and tolerate, by legislating on the rest of us about people’s surgical or psychological choices & behaviour. If it’s untrue or unjust, it may be a law, but that makes it an evil, or immoral or mistaken law.

The Devil’s Workshop

That 10% of Canadians are working in government is a scary statistic. Civil servants masters, bureaucrats, lawyers must keep busy, after all, and frigging around with stuff is the name of the modern political game. Most people want to “make a difference”, but when 3.2 million of our fellow Canuckis are do-gooding and saving the world through new rules and bylaws and programs and suchlike, we have a problem.

Then you’ve got the “let it all out/ live your truth” psychological class, also hyper-sensitive to political correctness, and the winds of the spirit of the age. Soul-care and truthful and compassionate counsel? Not so much.

Add to that our professional Left radical liberation class– often funded by the taxpayers– and you have new rights and wrongs practically inventing themselves. But we are– as ever– messing with holy mysteries, and the truth cannot simply be erased.. “To say of what is that it is not, or of what is not that it is, is false.” Or as I’ve put it elsewhere about our techne, despite our overweening power to impose through technology, just because you can do something doesn’t answer the question of whether you should do it.

So Many Haters, So Little Time

Dear Julia– while you’re making your bigot-list to threaten with lawyers, add famous people like transgenderites Renee Richards (remember him?), and UK millionaire “Charles Kane” (a.k.a. Sam Hashimi), and a guy now called Danielle Berry.

Richards: “I receive letters from people who are considering having this operation … and I discourage them all.”

Kane: “People who think they are a woman trapped in a male body are completely deluded. I certainly was,” Kane told Britain’s “Daily Mail.” newspaper. He continued, “I needed counseling, not a sex change operation.” ~

 


 

Champagne Burps & Caviar Dreams

~ ITEM: Harrison Solow: Today’s generation, too lazy to follow their dreams up with work

~ AS A TAIL-END BOOMER, our generation has taken a lot of well-deserved grief for the current mess in culture and society. But I’d look back to ‘The Greatest Generation’ before that, many of whom swore that after the Great Depression & Great Wars, their kids and grandkids should never want for anything. 60 years of plenty ensued. When older habits of frugality, saving, and paying in cash faded, you get the current debt-crisis, with a side-order of narcissism and greed.

Some young-ish couples coming to me for marriage preparation (such couples got older year by year) even made it clear they were deferring kids (and having fewer) so as to pay off old debt and have a large house, vacations, and all they felt necessary to live a minimally tolerable existence. That is, all the stuff & goodies & square footage their parents had built up over 30 years of marriage, except now, all at once, when they were ‘starting out’.

Starting Out Small

Inflated notions of comfort and deserving and what is needed to live– plus no sense of history or reasonable expectation– leads to this sort of young uber-consumer. The She-Binks & I started out in a sparse student apartment with mostly gifted or handed on stuff, living on 10K a year. We didn’t own a car until almost our 4th anniversary, and that a tiny Subaru Justy. Coupons & sales and discounts are still a way of life 24 years later, and saving/ scrimping/ paying off debt a priority, not that we’re always successful.

The current debt-crisis has a sliver-lining: perhaps a sense of perspective, frugality & saving, living within your means will return to all of us. Nobody ‘deserves’ a particular level of domestic comfort & pleasure; credit card companies and easy credit need to be reined in; all of us should remember that all we enjoy in terms of our nation and infrastructure and culture and laws was built up by many generations of toil & effort & sacrifice– to the tune of $435 000 per newborn or newcomer Canadian. Living for the future is a sign of hope; babies are about the generations that come after us, even as we come after others before us. The greed-glut and birth dearth are all about despair, me-first, joy-now. Having lost any hope of heaven, or of better days for our kids, too many folks escape into excuses, this-worldly excess, and neglecting the most basic human impulse of passing on life even as we ourselves received it, and leaving things better than we found them.

The Magic Cure

Work hard, above and beyond the bare minimum. Pay cash, or save until you can do so. Save above and beyond that just in case of a rainy day. Don’t eat out a lot, give or expect extravagantly, nor use plastic credit, or take 6 months no money down deals.. unless you’re already saving to pay it all off at 6 months. Give to charity. ~

 


 

Beauty & The Buttfloss

~ ITEM: Paulina Porizkova Blasts Nicole Kidman Over Plastic Surgery; plus: ‘Madonna No Longer Looks Like Madonna

~ ITEM: Paulina Porizkova-Ocasek

~ ALL I WANTED was a club sandwich & milk– but instead I got buttfloss.

It all started with my delayed late flight into Detroit (later under tornado-watch that night), and the airport hotel. The airline put us up with hotel & food-tickets, so a number of us went to the hotel restaurant for supper.

For some strange reason, there was a lingerie show which began just after our supper arrived, not far from the tables. Lingerie. On living chicks. Buttfloss and clubhouse sandwiches don’t go together.

We mostly all turned around, and ate our meal without almost-naked strangers parading about in front of us. Awkward.

Mrs. Beckinsale

Last time around I linked to a video of English actress Kate Beckinsale, via Ghost Flea. It was.. a lot like the Butfloss Incident. Here’s an Oxford-trained student of French & Russian Litt and a married mother squirming about on a marble counter, then beside a swimming pool.

Kate Beckinsale

The fact that she’s smart and funny– but also eye-wateringly beautiful is– in a strange way– beside the point. A person’s beauty or other admirable qualities are a gift from God, and in another way, it’s their business, too.

This elf has been married for 24 years.. and dating the same chick before that. Some of my friends are variously inwardly or outwardly attractive, but so what, exactly? It’s their business. My teen self was full of the usual passions– but now, and thankfully, my eyes & heart and imagination are pledged to another till death do us part. Optical adultery is not on either, says the Saviour.

Mirror-Worship

Objectifying people and ourselves is one of the great temptations of life– being an idol in some way for others, an idealized creature. The cult of beauty– with the surgeries and chemicals and creams and billions of dollars? Not so much.

In fact, one has to admire the award-winning, lovely & talented Cate Blanchett for appearing mostly without makeup in the 2010 remake of Robin Hood.. it’s called aging gracefully– even if she’s only 41 years old. Brava!

A Plain Speaking Beauty

Former supermodel Paulina Porizkova (married to Cars lead singer Ric Ocasek) has blasted actress Nicole Kidman for choosing plastic surgery versus graceful aging. Porizkova comments:

“She annoys me because I think that she was one of the most beautiful women ever and one of the greatest actresses; I really looked up to her… I’ve definitely had the desire (to remove wrinkles) and I battle with that desire on a daily basis because nothing ages as poorly as a beautiful woman’s ego.” Ouch.

Paulina

Finally, Mrs. Beckinsale

So– you look great, Kate, and I hope that Underworld 4 does well for you, and more than that I hope you get to heaven, where inner and outer life will be one, and our bodies and souls shall shine with eternal life. But I shan’t be watching any more of your buttfloss moments, thanks. It’s a little awkward, unless I totally dehumanize you into some sort of abstraction.

If you’d like to have tea sometimes, sure. ~

 


 

The Google Gobble

~ ITEM: Obama & Google (a love story) – Oct. 22, 2009; Watchdog says Google has “unusually” close ties to Obama; Obama Administration Hypocritical on Internet Privacy

~ ITEM: Rep. Joe Barton alleges Google’s ‘Wi-Spy’ breach was intentional

~ ITEM: FTC Drops Investigation of Google Less Than a Week After Company Exec Hosts Obama Fundraiser

~ ITEM: Editor-At-Large: Plans to invade our privacy make Street View look discreet

~ IMAGINE YOU’RE a do-goody inventive kinda guy. Then, imagine you get a massive world-spanning internet corporation with which to do good, influence opinion, and suchlike. Sure, you make arrangements with foreign states so they can better oppress their restless people, but that’s business, it’s not personal, right?

Next, imagine your company helps a Senator become President. A cuddly relationship ensues. In fact, when your company gets caught vacuuming up private data such as e-mails, URLs and passwords of unencrypted Wi-Fi networks, and you are facing a possibly embarrassing investigation, why not host an Obama fundraiser.. and less than a week later, the investigation magically disappears?

Obama has tried to erase the line between public & private– hence his hiring Wall Street insiders, then attacking the Wall Street class, and summarily firing the CEO of Chrysler, and forcing banks and corporations to take bail-out loot. Why not use Google to bolster his Presidency? What’s good for The One is Good for Onemerica is good for Google.

Oopsie Dasies? Or…

What if this was a test-run? A way of seeing how easy it might be to exert more supervision & control of the intertoobs? This POTUS has already expressed his desire for a Interweb Kill-Switch (for emergencies only.. trust him!).. the Internet has been a thorn in the side of the liberal ruling class ever since people figured out you could get around the usual means of legacy media news, command & control of information, and fact-checking what people say.

Imagine the state of politics & news without blogs. No PJMedia, Instapundit, Drudge, or any of the rest. News corporations rejoice, government & liberal elites re-establish primary control, fact-checking and whistle-blowing becomes an isolated and hidden affair.

Google is not a force for good in the world– and their desire to interpenetrate your life, your online & computer activies with their products, is not a good thing. People showed MicroSoft what they thought of Nerdocratic bossiness and market domination– hence FireFox, Open Office, and countless other free or open-source software projects that don’t help Bill Gates and his motley crew (or Steve Jobs at Apple) get richer.

Some Suggested Alternatives

It’s time for people to revolt against Google, and to take the time to find other e-mail, browsers, desktops, and search engines.

  1. Instead of spyware-loaded Google Chrome, try free non-snoopy browsers like SRWare’s Iron, or FireFox, or Apple’s Safari.
  2. Instead of Google G-Mail, use any one of the endless free online e-mail sites, or Mozilla’s Thunderbird (for computer-based e-mail), or anonymous e-mail sites.
  3. Instead of Google-chat, try Skype, or MSN Messenger, or whatever new interesting chat-engine is out there.
  4. Instead of Google-Maps, try Yahoo maps. Right now Google Earth is the best of its sort around.. no work-around there.
  5. Instead of blog-income via Google AdSense/ Ad-Words, get other companies & sites to sponsor your blog.
  6. Above all, delete Google cookies & info mining on your computer.

Just by listing the above, you can see how much computing has become Googling, and the intertoobs become The Googleweb. Is that really a good thing?

Planet-Sized Money & Power

With great power comes great responsibility, and Google as not been acting like a good corporate or international citizen to this point– why should we expect change in the future? Getting caught and embarrassed into doing the right thing is not reassuring behaviour. The closeness between the least freedom-friendly President in American history and the most powerful internet company on the planet should alarm anybody with half a brain or more.

The Googleplex guys are minding your business in a big way, and without some pushback, have some scary plans for the future. Google is not your friend; they cannot be trusted to defend free speech and open discussion; if a regime at home or abroad starts censoring the net and controlling e-mails and forums– or even just reporting what people are up to– Google has in the past collaborated with them.

Time for some serious investigation of the cosy relationship between the ObaDems and Google. I’d wager one of my pointy elf-ears that we’ve only seen half the ugly these guys are up to, or capable of, given the dangerous opportunities.

Enough is enough, and laziness is no excuse. ~

“I don’t know if either of you has followed the distressing case of Elaine Campione, who has just been convicted of first-degree murder in the deaths of her two young children. I hope you don’t mind my bringing this up, but I– and others– have been shocked by the judge’s statement following the jury’s guilty verdict, so I feel compelled to pass these links on.

Christie Blatchford says the judge implicitly repudiated the jury’s verdict:

This great column is by Rosie DiManno in The Toronto Star argues that the judge pinned the crime on the dead kids’ grieving father (and society in general), based on no evidence more than the word of the word of the convicted murderess. ~

    “Liberalism”…the opiate of the masses.
    Welcome to Canastan…the “Socialist Eutopia” formerly known as Canada. We had the third most powerful military next to Great Britain(our mother land) and the United States of America. Now we’re the perfect police state infested with liberalism. Oh woe to the commissars of the NDP and Liberal Party.
