~ HE’S A FULL-STATUS Canadian native, a direct descendant of the famous Joseph Brant, and he’s got no time for the complainers. Those who use the troubles of the past or present to justify malingering, complaining, tax-dodging, and depending on the government for everything. He worked hard his whole adult life, paid all the taxes, and left every situation and work-place better (and more cheerful) for his having passed through it. He made a difference, just like Old Joseph did in his time. And he loves Canada, and his home province, and his native roots.

Chief Running Lips White Feather

According to noted native-rights activist and other-people’s-business minder Omar “F*ck Canada” Shaban, I suppose my friend is a fake. You know, ’cause Canada-hating jihadists and certain aboriginal malcontents find common ground in hating Canada. Perhaps said Jihadists would like to take their aboriginal friends to live back in Lebanon, where the grievances, grudges and hates go back a thousand generations and more, and everybody gets to be profoundly miserable.

I do think Canada has done poorly by natives– not least in the liberal-created culture of dependence represented by the perpetual destructive welfare of the Department of Indian Native Aboriginal Affairs, and the many many billions thrown around for bureaucracy, lawsuits, and mafia-like tribal councils to dole out to cronies and withhold from non-family trouble-makers. A perpetual tax-fed underclass? Sounds like the Palestinians, to me: malcontents with a stake in keeping the payments coming and the hate & blame-game going.

Mind Your Business, Aye?

But if Mr. Shaban will pardon my French, eff off– it’s our business, not yours. And since some of my Scots ancestors– and the ancestors of people arriving here from Scotland and everywhere else as recently as a century ago– suffered terribly under the hands of the English yet don’t sit about demanding reparations for the dead and stolen, but rather get about making things better, I’d rather see militant jihadists like Chief Running Lips get off their cyber-asses to make Canada truly a better place for everyone, and not members of their too-often bigoted and backwards religious tribe.. and maybe tell his native friend the same.

And as others have pointed out, maybe he can speak out about the nightmares, inequities and underclasses of his own homeland and the Middle-East generally. How’s about that Hezbollah, huh? Those Syrian assassinations, eh? All that picking on Christians, then? And what about the slavery and misogyny in the Middle East, ongoing to this day? Too close to home? We’re pretty sure the Canadian Aboriginal establishment– nor Canadians of good will– don’t need this Abdul-come-lately with all the Canada-hating.

Wah Boo Hoo? Nah

As an individual, I’ve known many hardships, suffering, prejudices, persecutions, and other excitements: but sitting around blaming the darkness on others instead of lighting a candle? Sorry– you get little sympathy from me.

The only way to prove you’re a fool is to open your mouth and let it flap– or in this case, your blog, and let yourself blather. Well done, then, Shaban.

Thankfully, this is Canada, and though Elmasry and Lynch and co would have it otherwise, though you have a right to free expression, we also have the right ignore you, or if we choose to listen, thus to deem your stuff nonsense, and mock it as mercilessly as it deserves.

While you’re so busy truth-telling, Mr. Shaban, why not let Canadian native people know what Allah allegedly thinks about pagan religion, or about Christians? About how Arab employers treat native Philippinas and other immigrants who work for them? How the Muslim Mughals treated the Buddhists and Hindus of India? Or the Bahais across the Middle-East? When we see you marching in a pro-Ahminajihad protest with a sign calling for justice for the Bahais, or Yazidis, then we can talk, you interloping poseur.

Face it, Mr. Canada-Hater: you’ll keep hating until everyone (including natives) have bent the knee to sharia law and Islam, and strutting little roosters like yourself can be the boss of everyone, and the terror of those you dislike. Stop covering your fascistic religious hate with a veneer of self-righteousness… or, maybe, volunteer your services to an isolated native community somewhere and really put your money and time where your mouth is, Big Chief Flapping Lips White Feather. ~


‘Mergency Boi

~ ITEM: The Young Tyrant – a Lesson from History

~ ITEM: The whole aim of practical politics is to keep the populace alarmed, and hence clamorous to be led to safety, by menacing it with an endless series of hobgoblins, all of them imaginary.” – H.L.Mencken

~ ITEM: Biden: US Will Not Stand In Israel’s Way On Iran

~ ITEM: Hillary Clinton: “Never Waste a Good Crisis


~ MANCHURIAN PREZ— If he’s not on our side, could it be that Obama is hoping/ counting on some sort of helpful terror-hit on the USSA, so he can go all emergency-crackdown on things? Never waste a crisis, right? After all, why else ‘accidentally’ release all that nuke-site material on the internet? All this cuddling with terrorists and terror-regimes? Quid pro quo? No, I’m not going all conspirazoid.. it’s just how fascistically inclined leaders work: manufacture or exploit convenient plausible excuses for exercising complete control over a nation.

Since all the latest ‘o-mergencies’ have fallen a bit flat recently.. call it ‘crisis-fatigue’.. it seems like an outside-threat would be just the thing. Biden predicted phase one; I’m calling phase two, since the NORKS couldn’t get it up to do in Pearl Harbour if their famished lives depended on it. ~

Palin The Rearview

~ ITEM: Jonathan Kay: Right-wing culture warriors are putting Palin’s martyred political career up on a cross

~ ITEM: Despite what her detractors say, stepping away from office isn’t necessarily a bad decision. Here’s what Palin could, and should, do: 1. Start putting her national team together now. Recruit from the best and the brightest of real conservatism

~ ITEM: David Frum: The disastrous Sarah Palin could have become a modern-day Goldwater

~ ITEM: Palin attorney warns press on ‘defamatory material

~ WE ALL HAVE OUR LIMITS— Perhaps Governor Palin reached hers. However, the question that will linger forever is: could she have been a good candidate again, and won? With proper training, skin-thickening, and all? Or did she feel she was getting too close to the trading-in-her-soul point to keep on that track?

Insofar as we in the public line have to suffer the slings and arrows of outrageous opponents, you have to disassociate your position and yourself– it’s just the way you gotta roll. Especially for Christian politicians, you know that you war not only against flesh & blood, but also against spiritual opposition and evil powers that would use, disort, or exploit your good intentions.

It’s the point made so vividly in Lord Of The Rings, as each of the main characters is tempted to take the ring and use it for their own ‘good’ purposes. So Gandalf, the Elves, Boromir, Galadriel, Aragorn, Sam, and Frodo all are tested by ultimate power, on Sauron’s terms. The key of course is the difference between domination and servanthood– so Gandalf– over his 2000-year plus pilgrimage through Middle Earth, uses his mighty powers and life to serve and protect and watch and fight evil, not to seek nor build the glorious kingdom of Gandalfistan.

I’d say that by his current actions, Obama has succumbed to Lord Acton’s warning about absolute power, and morphed it into “Power corrupts.. and absolute power is rather nice, thank you.” That also seems to be what Jack Layton and Michael Ignatieff would do in Canada, in their own ways. Unfortunately, Stephen Harper has blotched his own escutcheon by some bad habits tending to needless secrecy, ill manners, and petty tyranny of his own– alongside a poll-watching and indecisive conservativism that satisfies nobody.

Power– like wealth or other personal gifts of body, mind or spirit– is meant to be used and bent to the benefit of others. Politicians, husbands, parents, and other leaders have the chance to change and shape the world one heart and mind at a time. To abuse, neglect, or fail in that regard brings us to the impass we are in, where the best can’t be bothered, and the bad are full of restless activity.

I don’t entirely understand Sarah Palin’s current choice, but it’s her business, not ours. ~


Puppets In The Hand Of A Goofy God

~ JUST HAD A fresh reminder of why George Lucas should never be hands-on with the Star Wars franchise again– watched the Phantom Menace, because it was on the idiot box. In the Lucas universe, everything in the future movies must be clumsily echoed in the past prequels; actual Jedi powers and skills must be sacrificed to plot; dialogue must cause wincing; actors must be hired on the basis of God knows what; cameos are wildly amusing; characters must be sacrificed to ‘dramatic moments’ that are supposed to tug the heart-strings (presumably of Mr. Lucas); and hate is the greatest possible evil.

I was reminded by TPM that the whole experience was so unpleasant for him that the great Liam Neeson (who played a Jedi knight) retired briefly from acting, muttering darkly about the abuse of actors. The dark lord Lucas does have a blasting effect on things. The money-making hack’s best gift to the movie world may turn out to be the inspiring special effects, and THX™.

The best recent products from LucasCorp are the animated movie & cartoon series ‘The Clone Wars’– I do believe Jabba The George has been kept at some distance from plot and dialogue (though the erratic Jedi-powers still come and go, as in the movie, for convenience and drama of plot).

It’s hard to write consistent story, plot, technology, and force-powers. That’s why George really needed to hire real writers to help him see how stuff works, how people talk, how force powers might be lived out (no force-pranks? really?!?)– so all the characters come across less as puppets, as real people into whose dramatic lives we’ve been allowed to peek for a time. He also needed to consult a Catholic theologian or two for a decent moral universe of good and evil, choice and unchoice. Maybe a physics prof to discuss plausible space-ships and motion and stuff. Lucas was never much of a thinking-person’s writer or director in those respects.. more of a circus showman.

Just sayin’ is all. ~

On Folk Wisdom

~ ITEM: Helpful Hillbilly Sayings

~ ITEM: No Laughing Matter – America’s Path to Marxism

~ HAVING KNOWN AND LOVED lots of rural folks who knew varieties of sayings, handed-down wisdom, and old-wives’ tales, I’ve found that much of it makes a lot of sense, as distilled human experience. Book-learning has the risk of fad, popular stupidity, and passing cluelessness. Especially in the modern academy, making sense is verboten– too patriarchal, racist, whatever.

Ordinary folk have been putting up with snake oil salesmen since the garden of Eden– most of them (unless they’re morphed into clueless bandwagon-jumpers) cans smell a load of steaming hot manure for what it is, and from a distance. They can also tell if an educated person loves them and loves truth, or otherwise. To earn that trust is a great privilege, for such hearts and minds are then open, ready for more truth and love.

I remember one of my profs– he truly love his students, and sought to help form their souls, as well as impart teaching. He was a wise, well-educated, but uncompromised soul, who bore a series of physical problems with great humility and humour. As a teacher in Early Church Theology, he attracted all different sorts of students, too: and once– confronted by a militant feminist, he calmly let her speak a moment, and then said “That may be so: but let’s find out what the authors meant, and the text says first, shall we?”

That– of course– is the point of all real scholarship: to encounter and wrestle with the best minds and issues of the ages in the original words, with the best of commentators at hand, but not over-influencing us at first. Then comes digesting the great ideas, then comes understanding, then comes– maybe, humbly, hesitantly– our very best ideas on the matter, not bandied about with pride and as if our novelty should stun and amaze everyone, but as if we are the most junior and worthless partner in a conversation of the greatest souls and minds ever.

As I’ve said elsewhere, that’s why the damnable damnability of idea-pimps like the Mainstream media and politically correct academia– they don’t want thinking, just downloaders of the predigested data, to be repeated and handed on. Understanding? bad. Asking questions? Really bad. Disagreement or alternative takeson Teh Group Think™? WHOOP WHOOP WHOOP– Red Alert! Thought Crime! Freespeecher! Extremist!

So– like Obama and others– we’re supposed to unthinkingly reject the tradition, absorb Marxism, and regurgitate it on command in the various acceptable forms called political correctness: economic, political, sexual, racial, moral extremism in aid of breaking down and erasing the old, and building the new world utopia. That is, act like ideological robots without the sense that God gave an addled donkey. ~
