Popcorn Poppin’ Propaganda

The wacky world just got wackier; here’s some unwacky reality.

Quick!  Cancel Neflix, HBO, Crave, Crackle or whatever streaming service(s) you use.  Cancel your Book of the Month subscription.

All you need is a pair of rabbit ears for your TV, a radio or access to a newspaper and the world of newstainment is yours to enjoy!  (Hey! Then you’ll have money for day care, prescriptions and the dentist.  See how that works; amazing, eh?)

Never doubt for a second that the newstainment media is a well oiled machine churning out a stream of consciousness designed to draw you in and keep you in.  To reiterate, media stories are popular:  “not because they represent true facts (or relevance), but because they appeal to many worried minds looking for an excuse.”

Their enablers:

  • advertisers
  • pollsters
  • bureaucrats
  • politicians
  • militant special interest purveyors
  • entertainers
  • communications and public relations “experts”
  • uninformed children
  • uninformed adults
  • social engineers
  • morality engineers
  • ___________
  • ___________

all play a role in what’s delivered to you and how it’s delivered, either overtly or covertly.  So, get busy and cancel the above services and curl up for some spin tinglin’, roller coaster thrillin’, tear jerkin’ dramas featuring such luminaries as the King and Queen of Climate Craziness:  Justin and Catherine.

And, more importantly, note what is omitted.  Did you notice how in the recent coverage of the precocious, but uninformed, teenage climate zealot (who’s only correct statement was that she should be back home in school) you were molded to believe that if you disagreed with her you were a big meanie (who probably drove around in a BIG, BLACK SUV).  The subliminal message was: “HOW DARE YOU DISAGREE WITH THIS CUTE, PRECIOUS LITTLE GIRL.”

No seasoned climatologist unfettered by government or industry influences, someone of the ilk of the late Prof. Reid Bryson the father of modern climatology, was heard from.  He would tell you science is never crystal clear!  He did extensive climate modeling and discovered that “you can make the model do anything you want to.”  If you want CO2 to be the bogeyman, CO2 will be the bogeyman.

As the federal election propaganda reaches a climax, beware that you may be drawn in—you then control how long you’re kept in.  As Kipling said,

“If you can keep your head when all about you
Are losing theirs and blaming it on you …”
(especially over untruth or irrelevance)

you’ll survive.

Federal election ’19 primer: Smelly Canada

You walk out of your house and there it isputrid air.

You walk in a park and there it isputrid air.

You walk down a street and there it isputrid air.

You’re relaxing in your backyard and there it isputrid air.

You’re in your vehicle stopped at an intersection and there it isputrid air.

If you voice your concerns about smelly pot, you’re branded an infringer of rights or an unprogressive and all you get back isputrid air.

If you voice your concern about how smelly pot infringes on your rights, all you get back is moreputrid air.

Federal election ’19 primer: Favourtism, breaking the law

Not a Leader

“He trampled over the rule of law, in the LavScam scandal to save jobs (so Trudeau says) and Liberal seats in Quebec, but did nothing as thousands of Albertans lost their jobs.”

Safe insulin, food for all or a few?

If it’s unsafe, unhealthy

not just for those who

can afford to pay extra

Subpar ingredients or

Federal election ’19 primer: Drag your feet & past the buck

Dealing with Beijing

“Beijing has detained Canadian citizens in retaliation for the arrest of Huawei’s CFO in Vancouver on a U.S. extradition bid.  We (Canada) should request the U.S. to either speed up its extradition of her or kidnap her.”

Liberals’ blame game

“With Mike Harris too far removed, Doug Ford has become the bogeyman and favourite whipping boy for the federal Liberals…”

Hospital health care?

You change floors four (4) times over the course of a one week stay.

You change hospitalists three (3) times during an eleven day stay.

First, you are told you may have a hard copy of your test results, then your request

is denied.

Castigate cell carriers

Cell carriers constantly consternate

cleverly concocting

complicated,

confusing,

coiled (a sign they may not want to abandon coiled phone cords!)

contacts (i.e., plans, agreements and schemes)

catapulting clients

ceaselessly into a

circuitous cavern.

Caveat emptor Canadians!

N.B. That’s why cell phone markets must be part of a US, Mexico, Canada FAIR trade deal!
