I Love Writing & I Have An Enormous Amount Of Stories To “Tell”. And as much as I Love to Write, Believe it or Not, all of this Political Analysis is not what I Want to Write About – I Find It All To Be Terribly Depressing.
When the Radio Station, which was Broadcasting my Daily Talk-Show Accepted a Deal from the CRTC (Canadian Radio & Television Commission) Somewhat Akin to the American FCC – to become a NON-TALK-STATION – in order to Receive a Rare Clear Channel License, I and all the Other Talk-Show Hosts on that Station were almost Immediately without a Radio Job.
I Can’t Swear To It – But I’m All But Positive This Deal Was Made Solely To Get Me Off The Air.
When I was Asked (Repeatedly) How I Felt at being “Off-The-Air” – People were Amazed when I told them, that I felt Liberated. Even though, I only Broadcasted an Hour a Day, Every Day, I spent Hours Upon Hours Doing Research & Activism.
So My One Hour Per Day . . . Became All Day – Every Day, 7-Days A Week, and it was Always about Dirty Politics. At the End of Each Day, I was Thoroughly Exhausted & Usually Quite Unhappy, which is Perhaps Why my Radio Show was Amongst the Hottest Tickets In Town . . . Because I Put So Much Of Myself Into It.
Many Years Ago In Montreal, perhaps as long back as 20-Years Ago, I was Giving a Speech at a Rally in Defense of Freedom of Expression for all Canadians in all of Canada, but Specifically, Referring to the Mostly French Speaking Province of Quebec, where – THE UNRESTRICTED USE OF THE ENGLISH LANGUAGE IS AGAINST THE LAW!
A Reporter – One of Many English Language Sell-Outs amongst the English-Speaking Media (Print, Radio & Television), asked Me just after an Impassioned Speech I Gave . . . “Why Are You Always So Angry”?
My Response to that Question was Simple . . . “If You’re Not Angry At Being Treated As A Second Class Citizen In Your Own Country – YOU’RE AN IDIOT!”
In Quebec . . . at that Time, Residents of the Province were Defined as Francophones (French Speakers), Anglophones (English Speakers), Allophones (Ethnics), and then all of a Sudden Angryphones – Which Referred To Pissed-Off English Speakers.
I Don’t Know if this Describer of Angry & Disillusioned English Speakers was Created because of my Particular Passion & Willingness to get in the Face of Ethnocentric Quebecois Bigots from the Government – Down . . . to the “Anglo” Sell-Outs who wanted People like me to Shut-Up and Go Away, and let them (Anglo Elitists) Negotiate how Many Rights we should have in an Otherwise Democratic Society?
Or Was It Just Happenstance – That This Describer (Francophone) Was Created Simultaneously with my Speeches, because of My Freedom Of Expression Activism . . . And/Or the Huge Number of English Speakers who were as Angry as a Nest of Hornets?
But It Doesn’t Really Matter, since it Aptly Described how I Felt Every Single Day, which was Neither Pleasant Nor Healthy for Anne or for Me?
If You Want To Get Just A Taste . . . Of My Life Fighting For Freedom of Expression In Quebec, Not Including The Death Threats, 24/7 Bodyguards for Anne & Our Property – Click Here. And if you don’t Want to See the whole Video, Fast Forward To 6:35.
Getting Back Full-Time to Working in our Advertising Agency with Anne, was very much like a Vacation, because it Lacked the Hostility, Anger & Constant Discourse about “DIRTY” Politicians & “DIRTY” Bureaucrats.
Even Though Being On The Radio Show . . . Day-In & Day-Out . . . Made a Huge Difference to the Lives of a Great many People, not because I was a Great Talk-Show Host, which I wasn’t, but Rather, because I was a Great Advocate for the Truth, Freedom of Expression & Us Against “Them” . . . “Them” Being The Politicians & Assorted Elitists Who Ran (Run) Roughshod Over The People – Drained Me.
I Started BLOGGING About 20-Years Ago, before I even knew what Blogging was. So I Never Stopped Being Somewhat Of An Activist. And Then I Discovered that Podcasting is Nothing more than Broadcasting Information (Expressing Opinions) over the Internet, which is Something I was Doing long before Podcasting Became Fashionable.
When I Started Blogging – It Was Pretty-Much A Psychological Release . . . More Than a War of Words, Because the World Wasn’t Nearly as Crazy Then as it is Now, which has been Developing Unnoticed over the Past Few Dozen Years.
I Didn’t Notice . . . Because here in North America (Canada and the USA), Before Obama and after the Feckless George W Bush . . . We Didn’t Notice How We Were Beginning To Reap What We Had Sowed . . . & It Wasn’t Good.
Very Few Of Us Before Obama . . . Ever Saw It Coming.
But Here I Am . . . Once Again – In The Throes Of A Socio/Political Tsunami, Which is Far Greater to our Countries (Canada and the USA) and the World . . . than Restricted use of a Language in an Ethnocentric Province (Quebec) of Canada.
People Have To Understand . . . President Trump’s Fight Isn’t just with the Democrats, Pelosi, Schumer, the “Squad” – Etc . . . President Trump is FIGHTING the Globalist LEFT, which Includes Most of Europe (all of the EU), Russia, China and Others in Latin America.
This Fight Includes You & Me . . . which we Can’t Afford to Lose. Because, if we Lose, WE LOSE EVERYTHING. We Lose our Freedoms of Expression. Our Freedoms to have the Government Work for us – Opposed to us Working for our Governments. And we become Nothing More than a Cog In The Socialist/Communist One World Government.
I Don’t Want To Fight – I Figure I’ve Fought Enough Over The Years . . .
BUT . . . If This Real Threat To Our Freedoms Isn’t Worth Getting Angry Over; and I Mean Really Angry, Go Back to Sleep, ‘Cause in the Final Analysis, Everyone who Won’t in One Way Or Another Fight . . . Will Get What They Deserve.
I Figure That I & The People Who Want To Be Free, Who Are Willing To Fight To Be Free . . . Makes It Well Worth Me Getting Angry – All Over Again.
Best Regards . . . Howard Galganov
