Recharge your outrage

We are living in a propaganda bubble, a systematic onslaught of misinformation disseminated by the Government of Harper to influence our emotions, attitudes, and opinions for their own ideological, political and commercial purposes.

Canada is now a country where the information provided by our federal government can be considered counter information to the intent of their stated actions. Prepared disinformation is delivered to our corporate media, who have become witless accomplices presenting opinionated analysis delivered by government and/or corporate funded publicists who soft peddle the governments position.

This is a government that is using our money to deliver hyped, self promoting, spin on an official government video site. They are trying to rewrite our history to match the talking points of its forth coming election campaign via publicly funded commercials, a modern day version of historical agitprop, one could say.

Similar to what I fear is too many other Canadians, I have become numb to the daily atrocities of the Government of Harper. We no longer see them in action, we can only rely on translating the veiled view that is allowed to reach light.

Here’s a video that was pulled from one of the television news  shows that I originally posted in March 2009, the same month that the DOW reached it’s lowest recessional point, when the then minority Government of Harper had finally decided how they were going to use our money as infrastructure funding to pull the country out of the recession.

Baird the then Minister of Transport, Infrastructure and Communities (even the titles they give themselves are illusory) begrudgingly, at least by his outward display, is appearing before an all party parliamentary committee to provide details about how the Government of Harper will use the 35 billion dollars of our money that they are requesting.



Now that the Harper Government has a majority, their vile arrogant obstructionism is no longer within our view. Parliamentary committee hearings are chaired by the government, held in camera (meaning in secret) and shortened to the minimal time required, if they happen at all.

Back then the simple question was “How are you going to use the $35 billion”. We were never given an honest answer then, nor have we received an honest answer from the Harper Government since, about anything.

Recharge your outrage.

Oh, it is a lot worse than you even dream in your wildest nightmares. Please, read this graph and stop crying over milk that spoiled over 30 years ago. There is NO news media:

When you take your precious CBC or any of the American trash going by NPR or "public service" media, be aware that the boards of directors are all controlled by the richest 0.0001 down to being able to fire at will a newly hired enthusiastic reporter.

Now step away from the computer. Walk outside and look at real life. Don't plan anything, just decide what you like and do that as long as you can. We are truly in an environmental apocalypse. Your shitbird PM, the Aussie's shitbird PM and the American puppet have guaranteed it.

PizzaGate explained

Never heard Bernie speak until after the US election, saw the debates and thought Hillary cleaned Trump's clock. Knew Trump was a prick and couldn't understand how any sane person would vote for him, yet for some reason, I called myself a Bernie guy, didn't trust Hillary and had no idea why.

But, at least I didn't take my gun to a pizza joint to break up a pedophilia ring in the basement and end up getting four years in prison, like Ed Welch from North Carolina.

RollingStone in partnership with the Investigative Fund and the Centre for Investigative Reporting along with five other journalists tracked down the origins and methodologies used to propagate the most successful fake news story of the past election,

Perils of shopping online

Thought I'd try that new millennial thing this year. You know that online shopping thing using your computer, that the kids are all into today.  Saved a ton of time, however there were a few drawbacks.  On boxing Day I had to spend a half an hour with my eleven year old granddaughter explaining how Trump called Clinton nasty in the second debate and this girl in Kentucky wrote a slam poem about it and then Ashley Judd an old actress heard it and performed it at the women's march following Trump's inauguration and that the word Nasty on the black tank top I bought her from the Young Turks web store was actually a positive thing, in fact a shield for women to protect themselves from the assholes of the world.  Next year I'll try not to do my online shopping at three in the morning after a joint and couple single malts. Other than that it's been a pretty good Christmas season. Hope you are having a good time too.
