Oh....you are so wrong! LIE-berals SECRETLY LINE UP to read my stuff- seeking desperately for some opening to attack my logic! Here is an article describing some REAL LIFE nutty professors- and explaining the idiot influence they are having on stupid LIE-berals:
How sad that some civil service Working Family Hogs-and I include Lie-beral loving loonie leftist university professors in this group- have had their own way for so long and so often that they simply assume that what they want must automatically be right and proper-such self absorbed types simply assume that anybody who disputes their position is trying to give offense-without reason!
I present here some comments made by some professor whose arrogance is so great he lacks even basic understanding of democracy. I include some comments of my own in brackets). The `prof` comments on his interpretation of `unjust laws`-the `prof` says:
Rando asked me to provide an example of unjust laws in Canada. Pretty easy. The Indian Act and that's just a start. It's literally the engine of Indigenous genocide.
(How sad the prof ignores history and reality. It was not racist impulse that brought white people to the new world-it was human nature and technology! All species have that drive to mate and reproduce-and each new couple requires land and resources for that. And who would want to live in a 19th century European city with its utter lack of basic sanitation, the heaps of sewage and horse manure and other refuse-fed upon by an army of rats and other vermin. The water so filthy that even kids are drinking beer and gin to KILL the germs. The filthy air reeking of chemicals with NO safety provisions and No zoning bylaws. White people FLED in horror from Europe and were desperate enough to roll over and displace Indians in their pristine wilderness. White technology now enables millions to live where hundreds once roamed. Progress is not pretty but is HAS been good for the majority of our species. We now live longer, healthier and less difficult lives- even natives got benefit that way. You can argue about the environment in another forum!)
(Further, the Indian Act was created in literally another world-before air planes and gasoline engines and before Chinese imports grabbed so much of our business and so many of our jobs. The Indian Act was intended to give natives the chance to live a life as near as possible to what they had lost. They would live like 19th century Metis who took the best of both white and native worlds for their lifestyle-Metis lived in small villages and they farmed because such was necessary to provide enough food in a shrinking world and they went on long summer hunts-living in Tepees and hunting Buffalo and Deer as well-whenever there was opportunity-a lifestyle that was neither white nor native but a hybrid.)
(Natives now foolishly reject all worlds and all options-they wont dig in the dirt and farm as Metis did, cannot hunt as their remote ancestors did since the wildlife is not there in proper numbers any more, cannot trade for furs as the European market has collapsed, and they refuse to enter the white world-only 25 percent of natives living on reserves graduate from high school-at a time when over75 percent of jobs require post secondary training-thus rendering native reserve inhabitants all but unemployable through lack of skill and training! Natives are NOT oppressed, they are simply CLUELESS! With LIE-berals encouraging them to be perpetual victims whining for govt aid!)
(The Indian Act has been rendered obsolete by technology and natives have yet to decide if they want to survive as a people or simply drink themselves into history! And in spite of the tragic history of natives-and most Cdns ARE sympathetic to their plight-the majority of Cdns ALSO think it is a DISGRACE that Band Chief Teresa Spence and her pals would burn through ONE HUNDRED AND FIFTY MILLION DOLLARS of govt money without producing a single receipt-while their band members live in tents and hovels in the Arctic winter-AND without a single new house being built-as the money was INTENDED FOR! We- the Cdn majority- want common sense and logic-NOT a lot of helpless whining and GROSS waste!)
Second the TPP which allows foreign corporations to sue Canada for violating trade agreements over and above the constitution and if there's a nuclear leak or some shit - and you try to protect nature - guess who's going to jail?
(How sad that the prof does not understand that the basic operation of democracy REQUIRES that the will of the majority be the rule of the land. Prime minister Brian Mulroney threw us into the free trade agreement with U.S. because he was NOT prepared to tell Cdn civil service Hogs: “YOU ARE BROKE-NO MORE GRAVY FOR YOU”! So he sold us to Yankees to cover his problem.)
(BUT-and this is NOT a `gotcha` moment for LIE-berals- WE are now stuck with these trade agreements-I remind the dimwit prof-and Hogs that LIE-beral Jean Chretien CAMPAIGNED with a promise to repeal the trade agreement if elected and he RENEGED on his promise. REALITY is this: the trade deal is not pretty but it IS important. Our MAJOR trading partner-those Yankees- are suffering economically and many of them figure it would be GOOD FOR THEM to shut the border to Cdn trade! Yankee extremists are just looking for an excuse to shut us out and the trade agreement is preventing them-from massacring our economy! It ain’t pretty, but the border is still open to us-and even Chretien saw the truth.)
Third segregation and any subsequent 'colour blind' administration of racist laws, such as the 'public amusements act', which were supposedly applied to all - but used to enforce segregation. I'm not going to get into them - but that's how racism operates in Canada using 'colour/gender/etc. blind' laws which are known to have a deleterious effect on equity.
(This-`public amusement act`is a reference to obscure and long discredited and now either REPEALED entirely or NOT ENFORCED legislation designed to control gambling houses and brothels and carnivals with RIGGED games of chance, etc! And how long has it been since segregation was a part of Cdn landscape? These laws date back to the 19th century and were mainly written by U.S. southern states. However there are Cdn counterparts that date roughly to the 1920`s and 1930`s. Much of this stuff relates to the `prohibition era` and the Great Depression when people were desperate to earn a dime by any means and these laws made it easier to control traveling carnivals and gambling dens and fraudulent `revivalist` religious groups-think of that famous fake and whoremaster from Hollywood-Elmer Gantry! Such laws also were handy for dealing with snake oil salesmen marketing dangerous `miracle` cures for all manner of things.)
A perfect example of that (Prof means Public Amusement Act) in recent memory has been bathhouse raids of the 80s and 2000s (against men and women, respectively) and marijuana raids. Everyone smokes weed, we know the law is obsolete - yet it is still enforced.
(How arrogant of the prof that he sees all history ONLY through HIS lense-Toronto the Good was once seriously hostile to public sexual acts-whether between male/female or male/male or female/female-it was all considered lewd and disgraceful and unsuitable for our good city-the majority view at the time! Again, in democracy the will of the Majority prevails-unless you are a spoiled union Hog like the Prof!)
(In addition, the shutting down of the bath houses was considered to be a blow against the spread of venereal disease. The fear of STD`s was a holdover from that older generation of people just getting accustomed to the idea that penicillin MIGHT CURE std`s. Prior to 1945, catching Syphilis was a death sentence! And catching Gonorrhea was a guarantee of sterility- no kids for you! And of course once we get to the 1980`s we see the rise of Aids-ANOTHER std with a death sentence tied to it! No matter that 45 years later, a massive and costly cocktail of drugs can now greatly extend the life of an Aids sufferer-this std is STILL a major threat! This is why people who have Aids and continue to have unprotected sex with un-informed partners are ARRESTED and charged with assault! We have more medical options than our ancestors and it is MODERN bigotry to judge them by OUR standards!)
(As for smoking weed-the jury is still divided on this-we don’t want our kids to be happy stoners-if they are too young to smoke cigarettes then they are also too young for weed. Further-many people will agree that there is little harm in an adult sitting on as couch on a Saturday evening-with work week done-having a little smoke up but will strongly draw the line at letting kids toke up before heading to school!)
(Most people are disgusted by the sight of a company employee furiously toking up in the parking lot 15 minutes before the start of a work shift! We do not want some happy stoner throwing our costly new air conditioner together any old way. We don’t want a goofy stoner tinkering with the steering components of the school bus our child will be riding in. And we certainly don’t want the brakes on that tractor trailer that is riding our bumper on 401 to have been slapped into place by somebody with a “What? Me worry?” Kind of attitude! This is a BIG REASON why so many Cdns buy cars made in Asia-ones made by attentive/SOBER people who are out performing North American auto workers who apparently think that being drunk or stoned on the job is no concern of their boss!)
(Somebody needs to rub the nose of that arrogant prof in a big bucket of reality. Democracy means following the will of the majority! And sometimes the majority changes its collective mind-as witness DESEGREGATION in U.S. Democracy does not and NEVER DID guarantee that some egghead would ALWAYS get his own way! And just how arrogant ARE some of these egg heads? Consider the old episode of W-5 in which a Manitoba community college prof waged a TEN YEAR WAR against the cop who gave him a ticket for running a stop sign! The prof was in and out of any court that would hear him-WHINING that the instructions on the stop sign were not explicit enough and his ticket should be struck down! And we let these dorks `educate` our kids? AND pay them with so much gravy it takes decades to pay off the debts? Just another reason to refer to the professor as “NUTTY”!)

Harper did the sensible thing, 65 is not sustainable, when people are living to 90 and 100!
SO why is that of the Cdns who retire voluntarily before age 65- TWO THIRDS are civil service Hogs?
And why is it that LIE-berals INSIST that you retired `voluntarily` if you accepted a buy out that you figured was a little better than waiting till you got THROWN OUT THE DOOR WITH NOTHING?
IS it retiring at age 65 that we cannot afford? Or is it LIE-beral scaled GRAVY to Hogs that we cannot afford?
I am thinking we should stop churning out that LIE-beral gravy if we want to have some coins in our pockets!

That's quite a deal for Canada. I can see why we wouldn't want any changes made.
Here is a FUN question for you: "who will buy those cars and replacement parts that are made by good CANADIAN UNION HOGS- AFTER the price jumps about 400 percent to cover those wonderful Hog salaries and pensions?
It is at this point that LIE-berals and their Hog allies leave the room- muttering about Conservatives who dont understand about good jobs!!!!

It is far worse in the US where they have done that for years. Do only the rich deserve to live well, retire at 65 and have a few safety nets?? You know like decent affordable health care, and a viable pension?
Here is a thought- of that sort that LIE-berals NEVER want to think- nor do they wish to publicly discuss it either! The question is this:
"Lets compare two hypothetical immigrants:
Immigrant one is from a third world country that believes implicitly in capitalism and democracy and recognizes that these values are the reason for western succes and this immigrant is delighted to have the opportunity to dig into the Cdn dream- this immigrant will have facility in at least one of our official languages- will have educational qualifications that are recognized by Cdn authorities and will prize living in a country where they can practice their religion without interference or prejudice- this immigrant will send their kids to school with the instruction to DO WELL and study hard so you will have a good life!
Immigrant two is also from a third world country- carries a chip on their shoulder over Imperialism and racism- does not speak either of our official languages- does not have any real education- may have papers claiming training in some discipline but Cdn officials cannot verify that- believes that lack of success in his life is probably the result of "systemic racism"- will send his kid to school with a basket ball and foster the kids dream of being some sort of gangsta ranting about rotten white people- will support and tend to his kids maybe- will practice a religion that requires US to conform to HIS values, morals and beliefs- will use his vote to mess up our trade with Yankees and will poison our relations with traditional allies- will vote for lunatic politicians who think that bribing people to like them is a better way to run a country than going to the bother off producing valid, logical, policy!
So the fun question is this: WHICH IMMIGRANT will be more popular and do better in Canada?
And the SCARY ANSWER is this : LIE-berals do not understand the question!!!!
