“Canadians are going into the Easter weekend tomorrow with a few truths to consider. First and foremost, Stephen Harper will be the next prime minister. Second, if Michael Ignatieff cannot be counted on to stop Stephen Harper from forming a majority, left-leaning Canadians will look to the much more likeable and ideological Jack Layton to oppose Mr. Harper in the 41st parliament. Third, Canadians will consider a coalition government to be explicitly on the table as Layton may be in an increased position of strength to negotiate its outcome.”

~ ITEM: Canada Votes: Time to write Liberals’ obituary?
~ IF THE PRESENT TREND continues, semi-American PM-wannabe Michael Ignatieff looks to be making an indelible mark on Canadian politics: putting the federal Liberals into third place for the first time in the history of the country. What the–? This is surely many leagues away from the old cliche that the Liberals are the natural governing party of Canada.
For this occasional political watcher, it looks like (1) Ignatieff`s personal fail, and (2) the fault of Liberal strategists of the past decade for moving the Liberals into right-wing NDP territory, so the NDP becomes the default centre of political weight on the Canucki Left. Hey voters: Do ya want real Socialist? Or mere Liberal Socialist Lite? Besides, Jack Layton– despite his actual politics and bedfellows– is a guy you could sit down at a BBQ and have a brew with, right?
The slow drift of our politics into this form will possibly see a New Left alliance– a contender to be sure– unless the Liberals can remember themselves and why people should vote for them. No natural replacement or heir to Teh Iggy with more gravitas and principle appears on the horizon, unless Brison & Mini-Trudeau and their ilk can make something of themselves distinguishable from NDippers. Hey: how about a Draft Kinsella movement? Now there`s a guy who’d do remarkable things for the Liberal Party of Canada.
Otherwise, Harper (minority or majority) could do a lot of damage to the opposition(s) by stealing the reasonable bits of their platforms. Time will tell. Still, interesting to think of Stornoway possibly in the grip of the Canadian Hard-Left come the election.
Mr. Ignatieff is by all accounts a likeable man, offstage. He does not seem like a national leader, or much of a political player. He’s also got an air of desperation & some ‘splaining to do about his voting in the U.S. as a Canadian, or vice-versas.
NDipper chieftain Jack Layton is the winner out of all those lacks… and may even grab the top job, if he schemes it aright.. God help us all. And the once-proud (but smug & corrupt & contemptuous) Liberals are the losers. ~

~ ITEM: The Good Book: A humanist guide to living a good life
~ HUMAN NATURE IS a mixed blessing indeed. The current form of our madness is an old one: “If only we got rid of [bad thing here], then everything would be great.” Fill in the blank: Pope, nobles, kings & queen, constitutional rule, the current leader/ group of politicians. Not so much. Beware the “If Only”: someone is trying to sell you something, usually their hoped-for power over you & others.
Got rid of Pope (called Protestantism, or agnostic/ atheism) = every believer/ unbeliever an ultimate authority. The French revolution dumped the royals & nobility, and gota super-royal emperor, a police state, and a tide of blood, war, and 2 million dead French soldiers. Yay. Here in New Scotland, the voteocracy elected Ndippers to provincial rule for the first time ever.. meaning
a bluer sky fresher air NDP scandals, jacked taxes, and leftist crap galores. Yay.
Radical If Onlies
If only (so say the Human Rights Cultists) we can control/ punish bad language and thoughts, we can make a perfect, harmonious, multicultural paradise on earth. At the cost of freedom, conscience, soul, civility, and age-old laws and societal means of making peace or resolving conflicts. At the risk of creating government supervision and intervention at every point– private and public– of our lives.
A few weeks back I quoted St. Augustine (Conf. X), “Seek what you seek, but not where you seek it.” To treat anyone or anything as God (think of all those 80s love-ballads, or “O-Ba-Ma!”), as the satisfaction of all problems and desires is exactly idolatry. Modern politics is thus a curious mix of idolatry, cynicism, and a kind of religious longing for ultimate things via the medium of leaders, policies, handouts, and the all-powerful omni-competent state.
This life– each of us– is imperfect, and not perfectible. “If only we got rid of [bad thing here], then everything would be great” is a profound self-delusion, whether on the personal or political or civilizational level. When it’s made into law and policy, that self-delusion becomes Obamunism, Trudeaupia, EUroticism, and al lthe other Isms of the past two centuries and more.
God & Caesar
The point? In this ‘Bright Week’ of Easter/ Pascha, we are reminded that we have souls; that replacing true religion with substitutes will not do, or if made to do, won’t do very well. That even anti-religious faiths like scientific materialism or libertarianism are founded on profoundly spiritual notions and questions.. and conversely, that trying to force faithful Jews and Christians into divorcing their souls from their actions and politics and public ideas is not possible, except at the cost of great violence to the idea of personhood, and the role of the self in public and private matters.
The first freedom is that of the soul, and being a child of God. From this all other freedoms and principles flow; without this, it’s a patch-job of experts, glorious leaders, bloated government, the snoop-state, some pigs being more equal than others, and the muddles we see revealed in the current Canuckistani election 2011.
“Take what you want,” said God, “but you will have to pay for it.” And lo, the consequences– foreseen and unforeseen– abound. ~
It’s A Binks Rant
“Manners tell everything about a person. You can look right into their soul. You know what their childhood was like. You know how they feel about themselves and the world around them by the simple gestures they offer or omit. Manners are about respect and nothing else. People from good homes understand this and are happy to fit in and show their courtesy and respect for others. Manners will help a child rise above poverty and lack of opportunity. The child who understand the world around them will have more choices than the child who doesn’t. An educated child without manners is more limited than the uneducated child with manners.”
~ Susan Livingston Harris ~
~ AS A FORMER frequent driver, I’ve seen it all. Accidents. People killed. Most of all, bad or ignorant drivers.
For an actor to play an idiot, they have to have some chops: it takes skill. The same with good fast driving. Too many speeders are going above their skill-limits, because of powerful vehicles on good roads.
Then there’s the drivers who just figured out the secret to world peace, the cure for cancer, or third world starvation, and must tailgate and bull their way through traffic to get the secret to the authorities.
Cars– for some folks– confer a tasselled full-bore certificate of absolution & anonymity.. which is weird, because you can see them, and they may be your neighbour. Here in rural Binkiland, it is still in living memory when MOST folks would take turns at traffic stops– lights or no– and drivers still wave to each other, and pedestrians: Toronto we’re not.
Thus comes Teh Binky, rebel and disrupter of rushing and tailgating and waiting long times to cross traffic. I often drive a non-hair-raising 30kmh down the main drag, let 100 yard gap develop between me and the cars ahead, and hey-presto, people get to merge, do stuff, and not watch bumper-to-bumper rudeness pass them by. I’ll also stop and let people out of drive-ways, and hold up traffic for pedestrians to cross.
Yes, because I’m a born trouble maker, but (1) cars don’t actually remove the need for manners & civility, recognizing that other driver or walker is just like you, (2) being in a scary-deadly rolling mass of glass and steel means the power of life & death and maiming is in a driver’s hands. Sigh. (3) A lot of women are actually bad drivers, given the general difference in spatial perception and path-finding. Just deal with it.
Driving is like the rest of life, and connected to it. Period. Here endeth the rant. ~
War-Hero “Scotty” Sans Finger

~ ITEM: James ‘Scotty’ Doohan
~ SO YOU GOTS TEH FAME, so longed-for as a supreme good by TV & YouTube addled sorts, Hollywoodites, and reality-TV wannabees. So what?
I’m rather more impressed by folks who had real-world accomplishments, or who did the right thing when nobody was looking. Strangely enough, it was through the comedy-site Cracked.com that I came across some of the following.
Who gets the Special Binks Award for real-world doings?
(1) Any and all of the actors/ stars who served their countries in wartime. James Doohan, Audie Murphy (Most Decorated U.S. serviceman of WWII), Jimmy Stewart, Mel Brooks, Dick Van Dyke, Kirk Douglas, Tony Curtis, Charleton Heston.. lots and lots. That includes all the stars– men and women– who travelled the world into war-zones entertaining the troops and keeping up morale.
(2) Inventors like actress Hedy Lamarr (a frequency-switching system for torpedo guidance), and Julia Childs (anti-shark pellets).
(3) Audrey Hepburn vs. Hitler? Yep.
“While a ballerina in Nazi-occupied Europe young Ms. Audrey Kathleen Ruston was actually an agent for the Dutch Resistance and she performed in a series of secret ballets called “black performances” to raise money for the rebels and their underground war against Hitler.” Plus, smuggled messages in her ballet-shoes, and helped allied troops behind the lines.
(4) Sir Ian Fleming, Christopher Lee, David Niven, and all the other WW2 secret agents who fought Hitler behind the lines. Badass.
(1a) Indeed, if you watch the original Star Trek bunch, “Scotty” (James Doohan) always hid his missing finger, lost as a Canucki soldier in fighting on frickin’ D-Day at Juno Beach. He was actually machine-gunned, taking 6 bullets, including the finger-hit. Off to rest on laurels for the rest of the war? No, Lieutenant Doohan then took up flying for the RCAF until VE-Day and after.
Sparkly vampires? Starlet bimbeaux & Hollywonks? Pretty boy draft-dogers? Jane Fonda & Leftist Commie-mongers? Not so much. ~

~ ITEM: ObamaCare Will Rid Us of Useless Eaters
~ MURDERING THE inconvenient to others has been going on since Hitler.. and eugenics before that.
Here’s the thing: birth and life and death is God’s business. Mass convenience-abortion has paved the way for bumping off geezers, feebs, cripples, retards, and other useless eaters. Handy euphemistic words make the difference: hence ‘fetus’ instead of unborn child or baby; ‘euthanasia’ (good death) instead of medical murder or suicide.
If words mean things, then bending language so that real meanings are concealed, is to lie, because telling the truth would be too.. truthful.
In Holland back in the 80’s, where such stuff was first tried, various folks found that ‘involuntary euthanasia’`became a problem, aside from the elderly who asked or whose relatives actually asked for their medical murder, or ‘voluntary euthanasia’. What’s a few more funerals, when your quality of life is lagging?
When nurses, doctors, and relatives have the power of life and death over the sick, dying, or depressed– in the name of do-gooding– then Happy Murder = a perfect system for abuse, convenience, and easing of guilt & inheritances. It was one of the saddest parts of parish work: realizing just how many old folks were left alone at the Golden Acres geriatric facility.. maybe with visits a few times a year from relatives who lived in the area.
Bonus if the geezer in question was slightly demented, senile, or Alzheimerish– then they didn’t even remember they were abandoned by ‘loved ones’. It’s not Soylent Green quite yet, but the theoretical limits are already passed– soon, it will be a duty for the imperfects, costly, or inconvenient to be aborted, offed, or remain unprovided with medical care, because of the costs.
A society will be judged by God according to how it treats the least of these– in that sense, the last third of the bloody 20th century and the first decade of the 21st have been a tide of hidden blood and cruelty and abuse of the weak, needy, and defenceless.
Adolf really would be so proud.
And Chris Johnson & Steven Crowder have handled the utterly unspeakable Trig Palin/ Wonkette thing. ~

A Shock Sheet on Canada
William D. Gairdner,The Trouble with Canada … Still!
(Key Porter Books, 2010). Contact Bill: 905-859-2647, or firstname.lastname@example.org
[Note to Readers: This book offers a careful and thorough treatment of every topic addressed, and lots of suggested solutions. What follows is a selection of questions, facts, and opinions aimed at generating national discussion.]
* Why Are Taxes So High? For the 45 years from 1961 to 2007, we had the following increases: Food, 505%; clothing, 455%; Consumer Price Index, 610%; Shelter, 1,063%; Cash Income, 1,023%. But the increase in taxation in that same period was 1,704%! (p. 65).
* Why Is Our National Debt So High? Despite decades of high taxation, we have a huge national debt. But all government debt is really a form of deferred taxation. So this means we are robbing future generations to pay for current consumption. As of 2009, Canada’s Direct Debt, plus Unfunded Liabilities, was $150,200 for every Man Woman and Child in Canada (p. 19). Canada’s federal debt alone, is piling up at the rate of $135 million per day! Go to www.debtclock.ca to see for yourself.
* Why Are They Coming? More than one-sixth of all immigrants to Canada return to their native countries for good within a year, and one-third within twenty years. About 40 percent of all professional male immigrants leave Canada for good within a decade of arrival (p.414-15). Statistics Canada reports that the earnings of immigrants are lower than those of Canadian citizens, and “continue to deteriorate.” (p.414).
* Why Do We Tolerate Terrorist Organizations in Canada? “There are more international terrorist groups active in Canada than in any other country in the world” [except perhaps the USA] (p. 416).
* Why Do We Give Foreign Aid to Militaristic Nations? The amount of aid money given by Canada to 24 selected nations in 2006-7, was $730.6 million (Canadian dollars). But the amount spent by these very same nations on military operations and weapons of war, that very same year, was US$131.8 billion! (p.231).
* What About the Scandal of Our Aboriginals? The social reality of aboriginal life is horrific; worse than that of many of the poorest nations on earth. For example: although aboriginals constitute only 3.8% of the Canadian population, they commit 23% of all homicides in Canada, and 39% of all cases of assault (p.234). The vast majority of these crimes are by aboriginal men (really, only 1.9% of Canadians).
* How Did Feminism Get Hijacked by Radicals? Since 1973, Canadians have forked over almost $1.5 billion taxpayer dollars for feminist programs (p.239), almost all for radical causes the majority of Canadian women have never supported.
* Why Do We Tolerate Endless Talk of Quebec Separation? Our own Supreme Court has correctly stated that “There is no right under the Constitution, or at international law, to unilateral secession” (p.467). Nor is there any “democratic” right to secede from a federal system, for such a right would then allow the dismemberment of each seceding part – until there was no country left.
* Why Are We the Only Country in the World with No Law Against Abortion? A Canadian woman can abort her perfectly healthy baby at any time, even a full-term baby, moments prior to birth, if she so chooses, without breaking the law – because Canada has no law of any kind against abortion. This is so even though the Canadian people have never supported unlimited abortion on demand. Read how this abdication of duty to protect the most vulnerable happened (p. 274).
* Why Have We Trashed Marriage? “We should eliminate ‘no-fault’ divorce on the grounds that no-fault means no-responsibility, and no-responsibility means we have removed the contractual basis of the marital union” (p.283).
* Why Do We Allow Politicians to Control Our Health Care? Sick Canadians are like sick pets: their political masters decide, through funding control and triage, how much care they will, or will not receive, and how long they will have to wait. Canada’s Supreme Court has recently warned: “in some serious cases, patients die as a result of waiting lists for public health care” (p.303).
* Why Do We Have a Hug-A-Thug Mentality? According to UN international comparisons, Canada has a rate of police-reported criminal incidents among the highest in the world – almost double the US rate (p.330). “In the 33-year period from 1975 to 2008, some 508 criminals released from our prisons murdered a total of 557 innocent Canadians” (p.373).
* Why Do We Subsidize Ethnic Tribalism? “Canadian multiculturalism is an official multi-racial doctrine” (p.392). It is a form of internal colonialism that condemns hundreds of ethnicities to house arrest in their own skins.
* Where Are the Illegal Immigrants? “In May of 2008 Canada’s Auditor General reported that there were 41,000 warrants of arrest outstanding on illegal immigrants in Canada“(p. 412). No one knows where they are (p.412).
*Why the Folly of Official Bilingualism? Costs of this program have been estimated at between $1.6 and $1.8 Billion annually. Exactly 63% of the federal government’s 71,290 “bilingual positions” are held by those whose first language is French (p.444). But Francophones constitute only 23% of Canada. This suggests that Canada has instituted a form of national linguistic discrimination against Anglophones seeking government employment.
* Why Are Judges Making Laws? Since the advent of the Charter of Rights and Freedoms in 1982, Canada has changed from a nation ruled by parliamentary sovereignty, to a nation too often ruled by Judicial sovereignty. Parliament is supposed to make the laws, judges to apply them. But our judges often make laws themselves, without consent of Parliament (p.465ff).

~ AS AN AVID movie + TV watcher (online, not Cable), NetFLix is turning out to be a mixed blessing. If you don’t mind darkish & blurry (via a wireless setup at the moment), then you’re all set. If you enjoy 1080p, and the occasional eye-gasm of the new graphic technology, then.. not so much, akshully.
If you have cable, I think it works a little better. Not sure yet.
The odd thing is, it’s the spreading trend for the nerdy set– I literally cannot remember when I watched some actual cable TV on actual cable. Movies.. radio.. TV.. it’s all going interwebs. How that works out in terms of paying customers and media-producers is in flux right now. Maybe you pay a yearly fee for full access. Dunno.. with the current state of the free-for-all interwebs, it’s hard to see how to defeat the widespread media-piracy which has spread through Western society along with high-speed interwebs access.

Leadership means that ‘the buck stops here’. Instead, Washington is shifting the burden of bad choices today onto the backs of our children and grandchildren. America has a debt problem and a failure of leadership. Americans deserve better.”
