*Ho, ho, ho

My posts are going to be sparse over the next few days. Somehow I find it hard to be critical at this time of year. I am not a religious man, but I love Christmas. I often wish we could have this feeling more often during the year. My wife thinks I’m a bit weird when she catches me playing Christmas music in the middle of summer.

Merry Christmas.

*Peace

It’s quiet in Calgary this morning and even though plenty of controversial subjects are brewing, the biggest story is a movie and it’s big box office receipts. Which makes me think how my priorities have changed. There was a time when a new Star Wars movie would be at the top of my mind and I would be standing in line to see it in its first week. Now… I don’t want to be bothered by large noisy crowds… I can wait. Maybe the last three SW movies, which I have described as giant piles of dog shit, made me sour on the franchise. I’ll see it, but it can wait.

*Nothing To See Here

Alberta loses their top credit rating – Calgary Sun

    The downgrade mentions “low oil prices.”
    But it then goes on and mentions “projected weak budgetary performances in the next two years and moderate, but rapidly rising, tax-supported debt burden.”

Bat-Shit-Crazy-2011

    No matter. The NDP says the downgrade is all about the drop in oil prices as they spin faster than a dryer on steroids.
    They believe they’re controlling spending. They think borrowing $55 billion is conservative.

The following quotes are from Wildrose Leader Brian Jean… which scares me.

    “At first I thought they maybe didn’t know what they were doing,” says the Wildrose leader.
    “Now I’m starting to think maybe they do know what they’re doing and that’s scaring me even more.”

Brian… remember… for the NDP, ideology comes first… always.

*Alberta

Things are getting ugly in Alberta and the combined governments of Notley and Trudeau are going to make it even uglier. The price of oil is out of their control, but additional taxes, royalties and wage hikes are going to bury this province. One thing I always say is, the left puts ideology before all else. Trying to assist the oil industry is against their politics, so they won’t. The people being ruined be damned. If oil prices don’t rise soon… it’s going to get desperate. Desperate across Canada too.

In other words, no appeal process. Plus compensation was restricted. In other words, no appeal process. Plus compensation was restricted.

*Money For Nothing

As you know the government says it wants to bring 25,000 “refugees” to Canada. They will not do this by years end like promised and I doubt 10,000 will be here. They can’t do it because they can’t screen people fast enough and they won’t do it because they can’t find enough who want to come here. Then when we get them here it is costing you and I a fortune to house these people in hotels… because we have no place to put them.

Government bill for welcoming Syrian refugees expected to near $80 million by March – National Post

    The government has said it plans to invest $678 million over six years toward the resettlement and support of Syrian refugees.
    On Monday, Immigration Minister John McCallum said Ottawa was “working very hard” to meet its pledge to resettle 25,000 refugees by the end of February, including 10,000 by the end of the year.

I wonder if cost is even brought into the equation when discussing this program? If the government estimates cost, it usually is at least twice as much… and likely much more. The Liberal government treats your income like it belongs to them to use at their discretion… and they allow you to keep some for yourself.

The Liberals and their supporters need to be reminded regularly that the government doesn’t have money without the taxpayer. The lame stream media needs to be reminded as well.

I guess George Lucas is a racist now… it only took 38 years, but Melissa Harris Perry, the faunt of all wisdom, has exposed the great movie maker for what he really is. Not only that, but he has duped millions of us into being closet racists as well. Blacks even bought the whole lie and celebrated the wonderfulness of Hollywood wizardry. I might even be so bold as to suggest that you, reader of this blog, are a racist as well. Shame on you.

Climate deal requires $16.5 trillion investment to cut pollution – Live Mint

dollar-sign

    To accomplish that, governments will have to offer incentives for clean energy production, scale back support for fossil fuels like oil, make emissions more costly, and reduce deforestation. The changes will touch industries from transport to construction, and encourage people to change their behaviour.

This is social engineering on a global scale.

    The new deal doesn’t take effect until 2020. Over the next five years, governments will have to complete the rules for the various mechanisms set up in the agreement on transparency and technology transfer. It won’t come into force until at least 55 parties, accounting for 55% of global emissions, have ratified it.

That means more big parties for the people who live large, while millions see energy costs rise and some freeze to death in the cold.

That’s $100 billion dollars in deficit over 4 years folks.

If Liberals actually told us what they were going to do… no one would ever vote for them.

*Much Ado About Nothing

Does anyone else think it is absolutely absurd when world leaders claim they have saved the planet? Hearing Obama and others claim the historic agreement in Paris would limit global warming to 2C before 2100 is the biggest load of BS ever uttered. I find it so crazy, that it stuns me when people actually buy it. People were actually crying tears of joy. It’s laughable.

So, will this deal actually accomplish anything? No. Cars will still use gas, homes will still need heating oil, natural gas and electricity and fossil fuels will still be needed to manufacture, transport and construct virtually everything on Earth. It will now cost more to do it and tin pot dictators will have a lot of your money to do what tin pot dictators do.

Oh… and the real threat will grow and be underestimated.

    From The National Post: … In particular, were reform to come in the shape of a ranked ballot (instead of marking an X, you’d rank the candidates, 1, 2, 3 …) the Liberals could, as the columnist Tasha Kheiriddin has written, “more easily elect back-to-back majority governments — possibly forever.”

It’s like Where’s Waldo… spot the widows and orphans.

    Two in every 100 Syrian refugees entering Europe are ISIS supporters, Lebanese Education Minister Elias Bousaab warns British Prime Minister David Cameron. National security concerns regarding the migrants have surfaced in the United States, as President Obama considers allowing at least 10,000 such refugees onto American soil.
    The Lebanese education minister met with Cameron yesterday and discussed the ongoing Syrian migrants issue. Bousaab said that ISIS is sending trained jihadists on “under cover” missions to plan attacks in the West, the Daily Mail reports. Great Britain has agreed to allow 20,000 Syrian refugees into the country. If the estimates by Bousaab are accurate, up to 400 of the individuals could be radicalized members of the Islamic State.

Canada may be bringing 50,000 in. You do the math.

*Hitler

I obviously mis-titled the first post yesterday about Donald Trump… according to many people Trump is akin to Adolf Hitler. Can anyone point me to a website where he is quoted as saying he wants to exterminate all Muslims? Can anyone point me to a place where he is held responsible for killing 6 million Muslims? Can anyone point me to source that explains how he started a World War that took the lives of 50 million people? Has anyone got that information?

In other words… please stop.


Godwin’s Law:

    Godwin’s Law states that as an online argument grows longer and more heated, it becomes increasingly likely that somebody will bring up Adolf Hitler or the Nazis. When such an event occurs, the person guilty of invoking Godwin’s Law has effectively forfieted the argument.

While digging up that definition I came across these stories about Donald Trump.

What do we do? We call people racist… Trump got a lot of that yesterday as well. Islam is not a race.

For the record… we also have a racist analogy problem.

    It should be clear by this time that we are letting ourselves in for two impending catastrophic eventualities.
    First, an upsurge in jihadist violence, as in France, Greece, the Scandinavian countries, Macedonia, Hungary, Germany (German federal police chief Hans-Georg Maasen estimates that among the migrants there are approximately 8000 Islamic radicals planning combat missions), and other nations that have succumbed to the siren call of compassion or a false solution to offset declining birth rates. This is to be expected of Western Europeans who, as Michael Walsh writes, “have been softened up by years of cultural relativism, soft-core socialism and the American willingness to shield them from the consequences of their moral, social, and military weakness.” That game is just about over for them—the same game that we in Canada are now playing in earnest.
