The Twitter King?

Resharing Neil’s experience of being outed online, and choosing to continue, because what the heck, eh?

Political Potshots

When I joined twitter. Itwas due to its influence on our political climate. I felt it was being manipulated by one voice. One of which was not mine or millions of others, it was a platform that was in extinction, brought back to life by politics.

I activated an account to observe and to share my wit, but it became so much more – a platform to share my voice, my family’s voice. Those that know me as a true advocate of Canadians, Government and the Charter of Rights.

Yes, I can be hypocritical in my negative response to misleading and outright lies. This is referred to as reactive abuse. It is the mind’s way of reacting to an abuser (speak the same language). But know one thing, I have never intentionally defamed another.

For sometime, I have seriously been considering sharing my identity. In this political climate, it is…

Transition From Coal Ignored By SaskParty

People who know what a Luddite the Premier of Saskatchewan is, knows the answer to my rhetorical question.

Conservatives Exceeding Election Spending Expectations

What’s that mean? You’ve heard the Con Premiers like Ford and Moe and Kenney are all threatening Trudeau, saying if he doesn’t do impossible things for the oil industry (because it’s rightfully dying), he’s threatening national unity because the Con Premiers will try to break away from Canada to have their own Petrostate?

It’s all part of the Conservative Party of Canada’s effort to exceed election spending limits. Kenney in Alberta is throwing $30,000,000 away on an “energy war” room to target environmentalists and other sane people who care about our planet. Basically it’s a way to funnel more money to crackpot media like Rebel, and climate change denial media like POStmedia. Their theory seems to be that if they can spend provincially, as a government, their ads indirectly supporting Scheer will translate into votes for him without running up the finite election spending limit federal parties face.

Speaking The Truth

CBC and other media need to recognize the following as true if we’re going to advance as a society. It’s likely to make them, and you, uncomfortable. Growth isn’t automatic and easy.

– Canada has committed genocide against First Nations people.

– Climate change has become a crisis.

– We won’t survive as a civilization this century without significant, yet still possible, changes to our daily lives. That means changes to our economy.

– The American President should not be quoted in headlines because more often than not he’s lying to manipulate people.

– Billionaires have too much power, and far too much money and need to return it to governments for massive investment in social programs like healthcare for Americans without any.

Jeet Heer (Retweeted Waleed Shahid):
“The Koch Brothers understand, and other billionaires do too, that centrist Dems are a crucial line of defense in stopping social democracy.”

– Canadian Conservative politicians have no feasible plan to deal with pollution, and their party leadership opposes real action to reduce pollution on time.

– Conservative Premiers put their federal party’s electoral wishes ahead of national unity and cooperation.

– Regina lacks the transportation infrastructure to meet its 100% renewable by 2050 target.

– The 2050 target is insufficient to meet our objective to survive the climate crisis.

Infuriating Police Escalation

Officers should have to watch this, and learn how easily they can serve a racist system of intimidation and ineptitude.

“It’s not just about me, and it’s not just about racial profiling,” Atkinson said Sunday. “This should not be happening anywhere, and it’s happening every day in our community.”

Canada’s Recycling Shame

Canada doesn’t clean up its own junk. It shouldn’t sell it in the first place.

Prince Charles opened a tire recycling facility in Assiniboia, SK a couple decades ago. A few years after that, it closed.

The Provincial government told my Dad, a Mayor of a village that the village should bury tires as a solution for disposing of them. Make rat hotels. That was the SK Government’s idea of a solution in the 2000s. What’s it now?

Will I continue to recycle? Yes. More importantly I’ll reduce, and reuse, and push for single-use garbage items to not be manufactured in the first place.
