Montreal: March for Climate Action 09-27-2019

When I hear Greta Thunberg damning the world at the UN...

...I am reminded of exactly where I was when I wrote No Healing:


Messing around
Digging up tarpits
And we'll burn it all away

Mining that gold
Exporting asbestos
Trade the future for today

We don't know why
But I've got a feeling
It could be a long time
Before we start the healing

Frack that shale
Strip that mountain
Extract it all away

Drain all brains
With the freshwater
Rape the future for today's gain

And I've got a feeling
It'll be a lifetime
Before we staunch the bleeding

Hiding your crimes
Building more prisons
Disregard the scientists

Mute all truths
Reason is treason
Ruled by ideology

And I know I've
Got a sickening feeling
Could be a long time
And there won't be no healing

They are expecting 300,000 in the streets of Montreal tomorrow. Hope to see you there.

Bollocks, Bollocks, and... what else? Ah yes, more BOLLOCKS

They are lying to you. Deliberately. Methodically. They use a playbook that was written by a maniac who believed so strongly in his own accidentally assigned tribal genome that he fatally poisoned his entire brood to prove his horrifically misguided point.

That is the usual end-game for the fools who look no further than skin colour or tribe.

Dear readers,

Once upon a time, there was a thing we called bandwidth.

It was limited, and precious. You had to own a segment of it, and it was doled out by the CRTC.

If you rated...

If you could prove yourself worthy to the

Public Body

Responsible to the Elected Representatives

Owing their authority

To a free and fair Democratic vote of their


(You and Me)




the Power

to Decide




Wanted this bandwidth

To persuade other constituents with

Merited it

Based upon their commitment

To the Betterment of the audience by broadcasting important and

Truthful information

Over these channels

Given to them

In Trust

By The People

To ensure faithful communication of



And of opinion

Based on




We can all publish

Whatever rubbish

We wish

Not unlike the American homicidal maniac (TM)

Holding onto his 2nd Amendment rights

In God We Trust

American you say??

Why yes, because these platforms are



(ABC = Google + this blog on blogger, and the notoriously easy to push stupid crap anyone made up youtube)


(Facebook + Instagram)


Here in Canada, we created this thing called the Canadian Broadcast Standards Council, but that does not have the slightest bearing on any crap we have from social media sites like those I mentioned above.

So we are impoverished of fact-based, multi-sourced information if we fail to go to the sources that abide by those standards.

Please, with a federal election on the horizon, avail yourselves not so much of:

- blogs such as mine...

- whatever BS you find in your FB newsfeed (or other social media "viral" crap)

and go here, where there are controls in place:

and anyone else beholden to Standards that you may call BULLSHIT on and expect a level of fact-checking decency

Now, don't expect them to get it all right all the time. Journalism is an art of imperfect humans, mind.

But do try to not get pulled in by the shit-spewers inspired by the likes of Goebbels.

It does you ill.

As it does us all

Good day, and peace and good (critical) reading to you all.
