I find it interesting that when humans began to domesticate animals, they began to become domesticated themselves. Civilization is the domestication of the human species:

We Domesticated Ourselves

First off, it’s worth examining what it means to be domesticated. In the most basic sense, to be domesticated is to be tame. Tame animals are not dangerous. They are easy to manage and hard to provoke. Their adrenal response, the cause of the fight-or-flight reflex, is tamped down. In some sense, this is neoteny in behavior- the lifelong preservation of the trust, playfulness, and sociability of youth. In the case of dogs and the purpose-bred silver fox, domestication seems to have increased social intelligence, at least in regard to interpreting human gestures and emotions.
Not surprisingly, behavioral neoteny goes hand-in-paw with physical neoteny. Domestic animals, on average, have smaller skulls, teeth and brains than those of their wild counterparts. Dogs are particularly pedomorphic, hanging onto the tail-wag, puppyish bark, and floppy ears of a juvenile wolf their whole lives.
Humans certainly preserve a host of juvenile traits into adulthood. Descendants of cattle-herding populations are able to digest lactose into adulthood, a trait normally lost once an infant is weaned. Mature human bodies are less muscular and more fine-limbed than those of Neanderthals, our closest hominid relative. Our jaws and teeth remain small and narrow, in contrast to our broad, babyish foreheads and wide-set eyes.

Mowich - The numbers of Canadians coming over to American hospitals is real. The Canadian medical system admits to 1%. That means some 350,000 Canadians each year go to American hospitals.

The total amount of critically ill patients in the USA each year is less than 6 million or 1.8% of the population. While you're reading all of those Canadian claims that they really aren't "flocking south of the border" you might get a little insight.

More and more NASA and NOAA scientists are coming forward to say that their work has either been misrepresented or taken out of circulation in order to maintain the failing hypothesis of AGW. Scientists balk at ‘hottest year’ claims: Ignores Satellites showing 18 Year ‘Pause’ –

Indeed I misspoke when I said that the media was running the media. In the USA the socialist party is so obviously running the media that it's plain that the media is now the propaganda wing of the socialist part and not the protectors of the Constitution as they were meant to be. And were until JFK was assassinated.

So the question I should have asked is: Is your government running your media so that you no longer have a clear view of what is occurring in your country? So that anything can be hidden and anything can be distorted and lied about?

Fake news. That's all fake news. Prove that it isn't.

Start with some actual statistics from your health care industry on the number of Canadians in your hospitals, not Breitbart's opinion of it. It's funny. I don't hear about one single person in my circle of family, friends or coworkers that have ever gone to the US for treatment nor have I in my sixty years. I've heard of a few who went to Europe for specialized cancer treatments but never the US. I guess that the conspiracy to silence them is so total that the patients themselves have been gagged by roving bands of Socialists.

Wake, I am well apprised regarding the shortcomings of our health care system because the Canadian media makes sure I am - they are quite good at ferreting out all the shortages, lack of beds, need for doctors etc. etc.

The right is not without their voices, Wake........Rush, Briebart, and alt-right fake news sites too numerous to mention are doing a fine job of spreading their propaganda and the boosts they keep getting from the Pres certainly don't hurt. If any media is in danger, it is not the right wing media.

A story being spread across the internet right now by fake news sites stating that the Washington Post took money from the Russians. Not one single credible news source is carrying the story.

People who only get their news from such sites will swallow the story hook, line and sinker and then fight tooth and nail over its validity. How sad.

"Welcome to the suck, guys. It's only just beginning..."

It was great – a bit like that No Pressure video that the enviro-loons made a few years ago, only better because this time the victims weren’t blameless schoolchildren but grisly, puffed-up, righteously eco, Trump-and-Brexit-hating TV and newspaper Environment Correspondents, all of whom hate my guts. (They hate yours too, so don’t get smug.)

The occasion was a press conference hosted by the Global Warming Policy Foundation for Myron Ebell, head of the Trump administration’s Environmental Protection Agency transition team. Satan’s Emissary, as liberals prefer to think of him.

Ebell had come to tell them about Trump’s plans for the environment and energy, which I won’t repeat here because you know them already. (It’s going to be beautiful, that’s all you need to remember.)

No, the reason I went wasn’t to hear what Ebell had to say but to watch how his audience reacted.

You know that scene in The Omenwhen Damien’s parents try to take him into a church? It was a bit like that. Or maybe the one in The Exorcist, where Regan’s head does a 360 degree spin.

They hated it. (Especially the bit where Ebell told them that Trump would definitely be pulling the U.S. out of the Paris climate treaty) They couldn’t believe what they were hearing. They curled their lips. They laced their questions with the bitterest scorn. But they didn’t really tune into Ebell’s measured, silken, soft-spoken answers because, hell, they knew what he was saying just had to be wrong and they didn’t really understand what he meant anyway.

The reporter who set the tone – and if nothing else, you’ve got to admire his honesty – was the one from Channel 4 News who told Ebell: “It will occur to you that this room is full of people like myself who consider that nothing you say has any basis in fact. So what you’ve been telling us is essentially meaningless.”

Ebell replied with some painful home truths. “Elections are surprising things…” he began and went on to explain to the mystified audience why and how it was that Brexit happened and Trump happened.

Basically, he argued – perhaps channelling Michael Gove – people have had enough of the “Expertariat”. And with good reason: “The expert class is full of arrogance and hubris.”

You do realize that the US has no socialist party equivalent to those in most Western democracies don't you? Exactly what is the name of this party?

Trump, and his team, realizes the AGW is utter bunk, without an iota of scientific merit. It is solely an attempt to redistribute the wealth of nations and to control their economies. The AGW has really given up totally on trying to present coherent case and its entire propaganda program now careens back and forth between baseless fear mongering of impending catastrophe and maudlin appeals to sentimental icons (polar bears, penguins, orcas.. none of which are in any danger). Only the most gullible of simpletons now believe any of it. But the dumbing down of the public has advanced to the point that this still represents a significant number.

I find it curious that you claim that the Canadian media makes you aware of the problems with socialized medicine and then name American right radio and Internet people that do not talk about the Canadian system that I've ever heard or seen.

And EVEN despite the reports from your OWN medical system that essentially back up my claims you want to call this "fake news". I suggest that you should listen to yourself sometime.

Trump, and his team, realizes the AGW is utter bunk, without an iota of scientific merit. It is solely an attempt to redistribute the wealth of nations and to control their economies.

Think about what this attempt to push AGW on the world really means. It would mean the deaths of the majority of the people in China and India. Without power agriculture would be back to hand labor. We would have less than 20% of the food production we have now. The liberals are following exactly the same line that was voiced by Margaret Sanger that people (non-Anglo Saxon of course) should be forcibly sterilized. That they are a threat to the entire world.

So now they are using AGW to accomplish the murder of most of the world to protect the white Anglo-Saxon.
