No, You’re Not Really Moving If Trump Wins
Every presidential election cycle, celebrities and regular-folk alike claim that if a certain candidate wins, they’ll move elsewhere. The temper tantrum may sound good, but no one actually follows through with it. Most recently, actress, producer, Hillary Clinton superfan, and all-around feminist maniac Lena Dunham declared she would indeed move to Canada if Donald Trump became president. As CNN reported: “I know a lovely place in Vancouver, | Read More »

Canada, America’s Apathetic Opioid Enabler
Generic drug makers shouldn’t be allowed to continue swarming the market with abusable medications. A reduction in the production costs for Canadian drug makers is not worth the two American deaths every hour it causes.

Canada to retreat from fighting the Islamic State. Justin Trudeau is no Pierre.
In 1970, Canada faced a “grave crisis” of terrorism. Prime Minister Pierre Trudeau said “violent and fanatical men are attempting to destroy the freedom and unity of Canada”. His response was decisive, telling critics to “just watch me” as he made a show of strength to combat the terrorist threat. In 2015, incoming Prime Minister Justin Trudeau has announced to President Obama that Canada will | Read More »
The polls were wrong in Canada: Trudeau wins a majority
After what happened in the United Kingdom, I know many hoped the polls would be wrong in Canada, since they were predicting a defeat for the Conservatives, and a minority government for Justin Trudeau’s Liberals. It turns out the polls were wrong. Trudeau has won a majority government. As Stephen Harper exits the scene, let’s look at how the man who built a small-c and | Read More »
Stephen Harper and his Conservative Party of Canada won the last three elections (2006, 2008, 2011) to make him Prime Minister of Canada for nearly a decade. But today it’s not looking so good. Canada votes again today, and it’s very likely we will see Stephen Harper move on after ten years of making the right people mad at him.
Canada’s polling shows instability coming after the Harper decade
Canada has been lucky to have 10 years of good governance by Stephen Harper, the man who took the brand new Conservative Party of Canada and won elections with it. But 10 years is a long time to govern a country, and the polling is looking grim. On the plus side, the situation is so unstable, anything could happen.
Speech codes, but only for Whitey?
Sometimes we get an interesting look into the minds of the radicals. I limit my exposure to their rantings, but in preparing for Tech at Night posts, I have to read some of it, unfortunately. I ran into a hilarious juxtaposition of articles at the Daily Dot today, that highlighted the racism bubbling beneath the surface in the Social Justice left.
The Wolf Gets Closer To Our Door – Canada Edition
The rattling sound of falling economic dominoes grows closer to home with each passing day. When it was Greece and Venezuela, we shrugged like the good Cynical Realists we increasingly become with each passing day. “Give it up Jake, it’s Athens/Caracas/Chinatown.” Then it was Puerto Rico. At this point even, the deniable still existed. All of these countries were small and struggled to field an | Read More »

Canadian hate speech laws may be used against Israel boycott organizers
In Canada, various leftwing and pro-terror groups have used the odious hate speech laws to bludgeon critics into silence. Even though many of the cases are overturned upon appeal, the accused is out of a lot of money to defend themselves and their reputation is forever damaged. Now these laws might be put to good use: Via CBC: The Harper government is signalling its intention | Read More »
It’s Like a Gang Land Initiation
The man who beheaded that lady in Oklahoma is a recent convert to Islam. The Canadians suffered a terrorist attack today by a recent convert to Islam. The day before they had another attack by a recent convert of Islam. I don’t remember ever hearing about a recent convert to Christianity shooting up a government building, killing a soldier, or beheading anyone. But if you | Read More »
Globalism, Abortion and A Waste-Burning Facility in Oregon.
Well, My Constant Readers, I’ve got some good news and some bad news. The good news, according to B.C. Health Ministry is that bio-medical waste is disposed of through appropriate contracted providers. Furthermore, they follow all health and safety protocols and government regulations. The bad news is that this conscientious crossing of “i”s and dotting of “t”s in no way prevents the shipment of the | Read More »

Tech at Night: Snowden-backed Russia goes on the Cyberwar offense. Lamar Alexander, the worst Senator, joins with DiFi
Sometimes the cronys win, sometimes the cronys lose. They’re reportedly winning on STELA, the bill that scared entrenched, well-connected TV broadcasters because it as going to make them compete for cable dollars in a way that they never have had to in 70s-era winners-and-losers regulations. It’s still likely a good bill, but just not the pro-market bill it could have been.
The good news is the cronys are reportedly losing in Colorado, as entrenched taxi services are feeling the threat from new, innovative competitors. Let the customers decide, not government.

Tech at Night: Note how the SIGINT outrage is only against the US and allies. FCC reform.
How do we know that the NSA stuff is being driven by anti-Americanism? So much outrage about NSA and American allies, but so little about Russia, China, and American rivals. Heck, I’m not even seeing a peep about a Chicom firm Lenovo buying Google Motorola.
Now here’s a major reform idea I could get behind: merging FCC and FTC. By removing one entity, we reduce the added burden on business when two different regulators come after them for the same stuff. Getting rid of DoJ’s antitrust division would help, too. Because now even SEC is grabbing new tech powers.
