From time to time . . . but not nearly as often as I used to be asked by Canadians – as a Canadian – why do I write so much about the USA, and hardly anything about Canada? To which there are some simple answers:
Since the end of WWII, when the Liberal Leader Lester Pearson became Prime Minister, Canada went from being a near Military Super Power everyone could rely upon to do the RIGHT THING, and stand up for our friends, to becoming a Nation of Peace Keepers.
I never understood . . . and I’ll never understand, how a Trained and Extremely Competent Combat Force could become a POLITICALLY CORRECT Army of Peace Keepers virtually overnight.
And what the Hell is a Peace Keeper anyway?
But, that’s how the Liberals (LEFTISTS) morphed Canada into a Military Nation of Sissies, which by the War’s End (1945) sent about 50% of our ENTIRE of age and capable male population overseas, to successfully fight the Nazis and Japanese Imperial Army. Getting into the WAR several years before the USA.
And ever since Pearson . . . it simply got worse and more INCREDULOUS.
Trudeau, like Obama, but many decades earlier than Obama, ran on a FAIRY TALE Platform that sounded GREAT, yet meant nothing. In Trudeau’s case, the BIG POLITICAL LIE was a JUST SOCIETY, as if for some reason, in his mind, Canada, before Trudeau became Prime Minister, was somehow NOT a Just Society with Equal Rights For All.
But, just like STUPID Americans, who buy Political BS through Catchy and Meaningless Slogans like, YES WE CAN & CHANGE WE CAN BELIEVE IN . . . because they sound great – FAR TOO MANY CANADIANS ARE NO SMARTER. As a matter of Fact, we’re just as dumb and perhaps even much dumber than that.
After Trudeau’s Campaign to Destroy English Canada, in the GUISE that Canada, outside of Quebec was a BILINGUAL Country, which WASN’T EVEN REMOTELY TRUE THEN, and is NOT REMOTELY TRUE TODAY, Trudeau decided that the RIGHT and DECENT thing to do, was to make Canada MULTICULTURAL, instead of a Melting Pot, in all places throughout Canada, OUTSIDE of Quebec, where in Quebec, the UNRESTRICTED USE OF THE ENGLISH LANGUAGE IS AGAINST THE LAW.
From several Decades Ago, Canada went from being a Brave and Consequential Country amongst World Nations, mainly BUILT on the British Culture (outside of Quebec) in our own UNIQUE Way, to a country of PANSIES without a National Identity, which has allowed our Canadian Government to WALK ALL OVER US WITH IMPUNITY.
Canada has already reached the point where the TAKERS FAR OUTNUMBER THE MAKERS. We have already consumed from the Chalice of Socio/Political Insanity, where in one (Bankrupt) Province, it’s AGAINST THE LAW TO CONDUCT ANY OF ONE’S BUSINESS AFFAIRS IN ENGLISH, to the CONTRIVED notion that the Rest of Canada is Bilingual, where in Truth . . . 97% of Canadians outside of Quebec are English Speaking, where only a FEW can communicate at all in French.
TO WHERE THE MAJORITY . . . of the Canadian Population has accepted that the people of Canada must be NURTURED by the Government from the Cradle to the Grave, no matter what the expense will be, where outspoken individuals who FIGHT for Individual RIGHTS and LESS Government, such as myself are the VILLAINS, while the defenders of RESTRICTED Speech are the Heroes.
EDUCATION IS THE KEY TO EVERYTHING . . . It seems to me, that Canada’s Educational System has done an EXEMPLARY Job in DUMBING DOWN our Population, to the point, where the VILLAINS in Ayn Rand’s Classic Atlas Shrugged, and George Orwell’s Dystopian 1984 . . . are TODAY’S HEROES.
If Trump wins, and wins BIG . . . and does just some of what he is promising to do, he will DRAG the United States of America back to Sanity, in spite of all the screaming, spitting and slapping that will be coming from the LEFT.
BUT MORE THAN THAT . . . None of this will be lost on Canada and Canadians, who will continue to wallow in our own SELF-RIGHTEOUS FANTASY, while America and Americans once again set the Standard for the Rest of the World to follow.
AND IF TRUMP LOSES . . . Canada will be lost for the rest of my Lifetime.
We should all have DISDAIN for today’s MEDIA, because they are nothing but SENSATIONALIZING LYING BASTARDS, which (who) will do and say anything for a Headline, because headlines create Ratings, ratings attract Advertisers, and advertisers mean MONEY.
As I’ve written many times . . . even FOX News is in all reality no better than any of the others. While it’s TRUE that FOX News throws Conservatives a bit of red Meat from time to time, they are no more REALLY Conservative during most of their Broadcasts than the others, as they vie for more VIEWERS and Ad Revenue, no differently than do their Competitors.
BUT THAT’S NOT WHAT THIS IS ABOUT . . . For the past few days, I stayed tuned to FOX News, to follow what they described, was going to be next to WEATHER ARMAGEDDON on the Eastern Seaboard, which they were SCREAMING would be bringing Hell and Damnation to the Coast.
SO MUCH SO . . . that Mayors and Governors were ordering the SHUTDOWN OF BEACHES AND TOURIST DESTINATIONS, during the busiest and most profitable WEEKEND (Labor Day) of the year.
And as one Media Predicted the Near End of the World, another Media, NOT TO BE OUTDONE, predicted WORSE, so much so, that people simply stayed away from the beaches, clubs, shops and touristy attractions, causing BILLIONS OF LOST DOLLARS IN REVENUE to businesses, while depriving MILLIONS of people from vacations they were long planning and anticipating.
This is what the Media has become . . . whether it is about Weather, Politics or Social Issues, it’s all about Sensationalism, which is why the Media have already become FAR MORE OF A PROBLEM, than they are a Solution.
