Free Radicals

Picture because

link not working 
is the thing working now?

When I was a kid, there was a bunch of eccentric bachelors living north of us along the Blue Ridge lumber lease. The land was cheap or they squatted on. There was one old fellow who built a shack over a steam boiler which had burned in a fire at the blue ridge mill. It was his winter heat source/furnace.

Then there was Johnny Chinchonie, I do not know how to spell the name, and all I recall is that he lived in a double pole wall cabin, dirt between the poles. The door, well tall window like portal, had a door that was hinged at the top and a stick that propped it open. He grew chickens and potatoes.

There was Jack (John) Casidey, Irish from the north, who was a bit of a drunk. When he was coming down off a bender would shoot at the "snakes".

There was another old fellow, who as late as 1971 drove a team of oxen in harness. (Not yoke) He bought a stone boat at my fathers farm auction for a dollar, and came down with this team to get it the next day. He road a log down, and the stone boat back. I just cannot remember his name.

There was Mr. Jones, who moved to Greencourt from the farm. He had two great danes, Queenie, and Lady. In Greencourt, of a sunny Sunday afternoon, he would go to the store and get a ice cream cone, and walk home, with a dog on each side. He would give a dog a lick, have one himself, give the other dog a lick. Any kid that came along got offered a lick.

Oh well.

And so it goes



Bill C51, and
Now what?

And so the stomach turns. 

Well maybe.We, in Canada, now must be careful of what we say on the Internet, due to Bill C 51, now. CSIS are now legal able to monitor anyone's electronic messages. Canadian Security Intelligence Services has there main listening post in St. Johns, Newfoundland, and it is staffed with many people of the Rock. We must not upset those who have the legal right to watch everything we say. It is therefore unwise to continue to say anything that can be construed as negative to those from the Rock.

Every email, text message, Internet based phone call, skype, video chat, etc, is being filtered for specific words. Anything that trips is recorded and goes to a secondary electronic filter, and then to human filters. It is not apparent yet how much is actually being reviewed, but the mega data is always present.

Anyone who the government takes a dislike to can be placed on the no fly list, have their passport tagged, and have a full package of electronic surveillance started on them. I am not paranoid, it is happening now. I am already on their watch list as I help train people in a "potentially offensive and lethal sport".

Secret Police State

Just gota put in a picture; a bride to far, well to Dickinson, if memory serves. Potential terrorist target, yah sure. Mind you, a well placed old pick up truck or cable could do the job.

Krap:  The start of a secret police state. Wake up people, it is not secret anymore. It it were secret, we commons would not know about it. This bill makes it public. It legalizes the current government conduct. The government will no longer tolerate de-center's ok. If you ain't one of us, you are against us. That forgets about the majority, the apathetic. We the apathetic, who follow the rules, more or less, who pay taxes, and financially support the government, a government does more or less what it must to survive, is doing OK, more or less, so we are more or less OK with it.

The "fores" are separate from the apathetic, which are separate from the against, and many claim the apathetic. The neutral position is large and silent, regardless of Bushes like "if you are not with us, then you stand against us" illogical attempt to polarize the neutrals.  

If a group holds themselves apart from our open society, they are the ones who are prejudice, perhaps racial prejudice, or culturally prejudice, or perhaps behavioral prejudice. We all have prejudice. Those are the things we do not support, even dislike. So what. Get on with life.

The natives are prejudiced against us white who support them. They are free to go live as they did before we came. They are free to go back to the stone age, if they desire, but no, they want to be kept in a style that matches the industrial age. I think we should do just that for the one who were here when we came, or for those who signed the original treaties. All now long dead. The natives are a conquered race/culture. In Roman time they would have become slaves. They expect us to keep them, while they breed like rabbits? It is time to pitch them off the dole, along with any new immigrant. There are lots of jobs going begging, most Tim Hortons are hiring. But the hi jab wearers have too much ego to work in the jobs they can get, but not to much ego welfare.

The Quebec government says no religious symbolizes in court, and the judge pitched a complainant out wearing a hijab, on welfare, trying to get her uninsured car back, which was being driven by here 21 year old son. Did she declare her car on the welfare forms? Not according to some reports. Oh well, C51 will not help this crap.

Enough venom. Support Bill C51  and apathy.
