On a Variety of Topics

There’s no essay-length topic rumbling around in the brain to write about, so how about a couple of quick hit items.

The Best and Worst Places for Women in Canada

So this year the best place for women to live in Canada is Victoria, BC and the worst is Windsor, Ontario. This is the same bullshit “study” that last year determined Kitchener-Waterloo was the worst place to live for women largely because to the “wage gap” between women and men despite the fact that women in K-W earned more per capita than women in other cities around the country. But wait – men made even more, therefore the wage gap was larger than average ipso facto K-W was a bad city for women to live in. No accounting for the fact that many women might be married or partnered to some of these higher earning men and thereby experience a higher standard of living than they might enjoy elsewhere.

If you went by this study then the best place for a woman to live in Canada would be a) where all the political representatives/leaders are women, b) where there is no violence against women, c) where women are the top wage earners and in positions of power.

Sounds like Paradise Island ruled by the Amazons with Wonder Woman as their protector.  That’s the goal – a world without men.  If only we could start replicating female humans in a test tube, I’m sure that’d be the feminist dream for the future of the world.

Speaking of Feminists

Again, some clueless person refers to Sophie Gregoire-Trudeau as a “warrior”. We know that all perspective has been lost, but c’mon. The Battle of Verdun in 1916 saw almost 650,000 killed and another million wounded over a nine month period. Men literally drowning in mud holes created by artillery blasts that they couldn’t climb out of.  Corpses everywhere.  Miles and miles of barbed wire with machine gunned bodies stuck on it.  Mustard gas.  Cholera and dysentery.  But those men fought on. What on earth would those souls think about their sacrifices so that two gal-pals can ride around on their Vespa or what they’d think of a generation that holds them up as some sort of ideal?

Stephen Crowder made fun of Emma Watson’s speech to the UN a few months ago. Isn’t it wonderful when a person with so much wealth and fame can lecture us about our “privilege”? I’m sure the roofer, toiling up a ladder three floors high, carrying 2 bundles of shingles to work precariously on a massively sloped roof would love it if you yelled at them, “you lucky privileged bastards!  Stop oppressing Emma Watson!”

PS – where are their helmets? Oh wait, they’re so oppressed that these two attractive women can’t be arsed to wear legally mandated helmets because then people (men) wouldn’t be able to see how beautiful they are.

Watch These Videos and Say WTF

An anti-Jordan Peterson rally at the University of Toronto. Heaven forbid that you ask white cis-males what their opinions on social issues are.

I will contend that 90% of the SJW movement is evil. C’mon, you say, misguided maybe, but evil?  But I’m sure that communists and Nazis didn’t think what they were trying to bring to the world was evil, but now in the fullness of time the great majority of us can look back and say yep, those were evil ideologies, they killed a lot of people and made hundreds of millions of people miserable.   Same thing here – they’re bullies, they’re enemies of free speech, they’re anti-life (abortion, assisted suicide), they’re misandrists, segregationists and against scientific progress and economic prosperity.  If they took over we’d live in a completely miserable world.  That’s evil.

You want proof on what kind of horrible people we’re talking about? See this clip. What a POS.

Wieners Out.

I Couldn’t Have Written It Any Better

A first-rate analysis of how we got where we are with Trump.

Finally

The fantastic Douglas Murray on free speech. Listen to the whole thing and wonder how anyone can disagree that free speech is the first fundamental right of people in a democracy.

On Chyyyaniwynklc

I like ‘Chyyyaniwynklc’ as the new name for British Columbia. Let’s go with it.

Supposedly it means “sea to sky” in Salish and is one of the serious suggestions in a new initiative to rename the province of British Columbia Chyyyaniwynklc. I think it also means “pancake breakfast” in Congolese and means “more boobie please” in baby-talk, but that’s just surplus benefits to the requirement to find a name for the province that doesn’t reflect our evil colonialist history.

It’s like waves off the ocean; they keep coming and coming, eroding the shoreline over time. Except it seems like there’s a storm offshore that never seems to lose energy and give us some pause, rather the waves in recent years are relentless and huge and the erosion is rapid. Social progress some might say.

The problem as I’ve written before is that it’s never enough. The goal line is always moving on us. One might say, OK, I we’ll give you changing ‘All our son’s command’ in the national anthem to ‘All of us command’, because sure, we don’t want to be “exclusive” of the contributions of our daughters to the fabric of our great country. What’s the big deal? We’ll demonstrate accommodation and prove to you we old white men are not the sexists you think we are. Except it’s the old axiom, give them an inch and they’ll take it a mile. It never ends. Is there any doubt that another demand to change some other lyrics in the national anthem is just around the corner?  The insistence to remake and recast society in their neutered vision of the world is a never ending project because it stems from an ideology based on pathological bullying and impulses to control and change others. It has less to do with rectifying injustices of the past than imposing their will on anyone they can.

So what’s to say they’ll be happy to stop at Chyyyaniwynklc? There are other provinces that need renaming;

Newfoundland – who “found” this land? Evil white Vikings? Good grief. This province needs renaming right away. Besides I never understood if it’s NEW-found-land, or new-FOUND-land, and look at the other benefit; we’d be getting rid of that horrible pejorative calling someone a “newfie”.

Nova Scotia – New Scotland? How dare you. That name speaks of conquest. And we all know Scots are obnoxious cheap skates.

New Brunswick – named for the Elector of Hannover? Where the hell is Old Brunswick? I don’t understand this name at all. It wasn’t “new” either to the peoples already living there.

Prince Edward Island – named after a British prince. Did he even ever visit this place?

Alberta – named for the Duchess of Argyll, fourth daughter of Queen Victoria. If “British” Columbia sounds colonialist then there is no question naming a patch of land after the 4th daughter definitely qualifies as colonialist arrogance.

Ontario – I think this is already a native name… but really maybe we could just rename it to “Toronto” since that seems to be the only place that matters in the province. Or the country for that matter.

But wait, what about cities? London? A city in England. Kitchener? An English field general. Windsor? The surname of the British royal family. Hamilton, Edmonton, Victoria, St. John, St. John’s… Vancouver?!? Named after the colonialist British Navy captain?

Let’s do it all.  Let’s rename everything in this country to rid ourselves of reminders of our oppressive past. I propose the renaming of the biggest city on the west coast of Canada as Cthulhu, Chyyyaniwynklc.
