You Go, Iceland

While America prepares to elect a corrupt, lawless criminal for president, to continue the course of Rotten Government we’ve suffered under for decades, Iceland may be about to choose a different path.

Iceland’s Pirate Party — an amalgamation of anarchists, libertarians, and hackers, who want to ban digital surveillance — is predicted to win the country’s national elections this Saturday.

This collection of free-thinkers have upturned the traditional Western political paradigm and hopes to use online public polls to shape governmental policy and end all Internet spying.

Although the Pirate Party formed just four years ago, its popularity has skyrocketed — most likely for unconventional tactics aligning loosely with libertarianism — the promotion of privacy rights and personal freedoms, and simultaneous shrinking of Big Government.

Sounds good to me.

Do you think Iceland is going to turn into Somalia? Because according to our leftist friends, the only alternative to massive, all-powerful, intrusive, Government is totally anarchy with no police, roads, or fire protection. There simply is no other possible system of Government.

I had already decided there would be an Icelandic character in my NaNoWriMo novel. Glad I made that call.

Sad Republicans Who Don’t Get Milo

What author is trying to say: Trump’s “Redneck” base has adopted Milo as a token gay person to hide their deep homosphobia and gay hatred. (Which is how those deplorables really feel about gays.)

Simpler and Far More Plausible Explanation: Trump’s base never hated gays to begin with and just welcome Milo as part of the team.

Also, Milo’s very existence cheeses off the sort of left-wing bigots [and fanatical #NeverTrumpers] who imagine that gay-hatred is universal on the right and among the lower classes they think of as beneath them. The author seems to be more of a Jeb-Loving Sad Republican than a leftist; but I can’t help think Milo has done more for conservative gays than Jeb or any other Sad Republican could have.

Reporter Is Shocked by the Behavior of Trump Supporters

Blogger goes to Trump Rally, is shocked by what he sees.

The people there were nice, peaceful, and nothing at all like what I expected. …
There were no incidents of violence, no craziness, none of the stuff the media has been reporting on. In fact, it was quite the opposite. The rally was held at the amphitheater, which is a venue for a lot of concerts and big events, and I have *never* seen a crowd so well behaved as this one. Usually people are all up in your personal space, jostling, bumping up against you. There would be spilled drinks, screaming people, dirty looks and occasional fights. Not at the Trump rally.

When the rally ended, everyone filed out in orderly fashion, personal space was respected, there was no jostling, or the usual hostile folks trying to force their way out. For me, the contrast was staggering. All this despite the fact that the amphitheater was packed to the gills, and there was a whole crowd outside the venue.

If the reporter was stunned at how well-behaved and respectful the crowd was, it is probably because he is more accustomed to the behavior of progressive leftists and SJW’s and how they behave at their events.

Because this is who Trump represents: The part of America that believes in following the rules; whether they be rules about the proper handling of classified information or the immigration laws that prescribe the correct process for entering the country. The part of America that isn’t about shoving their way ahead of everybody else and getting into their personal space. We may hate the stupid rules Washington is churning out, but we want to change them, not violently protest that they don’t apply to us.

It is in contrast to the America Hillary represents: Rules? The rules are only there to keep the little people in their place. They don’t apply to people who have the money and power to evade them. And you can ask #BlackLivesMatter, #QueerNation, and Third Wave Feminists how they feel about the personal space of others.  The same groups who believe shoving their way in front of everybody else is what the Government should help them do.

This is also the heart of the Red State/Blue State — Conservative/Progressive divide in this country.

And Don’t Get Her Started on Kayaks

According to a (deranged, idiotic, and needless to say, leftist) Canadian Professor, canoes are problematic: “Problematic” being a word leftist use to describe completely innocuous things in ways no normal person would in for purpose of Social Justice Virtue Signaling.

According to Misao Dean, Professor of English at the University of Victoria, the canoe can be a symbol of colonialism, imperialism and genocide due to history. She also accused the canoers of cultural appropriation because they are primarily white men and have a privileged place in society.

CBC Radio host Jim Brown then asked a question: “Should we look at the canoe as a non-controversial symbol or should we look at it as a symbol of colonialism?”

To which the academic replied: “Absolutely a symbol of colonialism. It seems to me that this narrative we tell ourselves about the canoe about how canoeing makes us in touch with nature, how canoeing makes us in some way guiltless of the terrible things that the Canadian government and Canadians in general did to First Nations people.”

Consider your virtue signaled, sweetheart.

IDK why we’re picking on Canada today. Oh, yeah, they elected a completely vacuous PC idiot as their leader because he had nice hair.

Green Energy Policies Force Canadians to Choose Between Heat and Food

America’s Hat — like many other places brainwashed into believing that the possibility of a slight temperature rise will doom all of humanity — has adopted “green energy policies” that favor expensive, unreliable sources of power (wind and solar) over less expensive, highly reliable sources like coal, gas, and nuclear. I witnessed this first-hand driving through southern Ontario last year, where there are some sixty continuous miles of spinning bird-choppers lining the highway between Toronto and Detroit.

Bowing at the altar of Gaia comes with a significant cost. In Ontario, the province where the Gaia Agenda has been pushed to California-style extremes — energy rates have skyrocketed. And now many Canucks are finding themselves having to choose between having back-bacon in the fridge and heating their homes.

Ontario premiers Dalton McGuinty and Kathleen Wynne, via their 2009 Green Energy Act and other poor decisions, have pushed many of the people they govern into dire financial straits thanks to their activist agendas.

“They live as if it’s Cold War Russia,” Miranda from Toronto told me during a phone conversation about her parent’s energy woes. “They use a pellet stove and propane heating. They put construction-style plastic on the windows and extra insulation.”

“They’re considering using food banks this winter,” she said. “I work in international development in third world countries and I’m starting to see the stuff here that I’m seeing there.”

Not everybody is doing so bad. Canada’s Carbon Tax “Slush Fund” promises to become a big, fat gold mine for politically connected cronies and rent-seekers.

Play Socialist Games, Win Socialist Prizes.

Even if you do buy into the “Carbon Dioxide is the Devil and Industrial Civilization is Evil,” it doesn’t have to be this way. A Dutch inventor claims to have developed a technology that pulls pollution out of the atmosphere. The details are a little sketchy, but surely building large-scale atmospheric processors in heavily polluted cities is an achievable technology if we decided to do that instead of following the Green Path of energy poverty.
