I remember the moment, my wife and I were visiting a small 19th century town near Toronto, on a perfect Southern Ontario summer day. We were enjoying the town’s coffee shop culture outside on the sidewalk, when five or six, probably Harley Davidson motorcycles drove down the narrow main street with near open mufflers. It was ear splitting, beyond the threshold of pain. It served no purpose other than to make the middle aged, middle class male riders finally feel cool.

I knew at that time that the government gave cash rebates to people who needed hearing aids and here I saw that the government was also allowing a practice that made hearing aids a little more necessary. It was then that I first spoke the words, “If I were King”.

I will be charitable and describe this man as an ass. Somehow he seems to think that just because he is a Westerner, he has the right to speak for all in the West? He should walk a mile in the protesters shoes, how about give up his citizenship and become Chinese, if they would take him.

ScottforKing comments on Sep 1, 2019:
I live in Canada, the other side of the pond where news of any sort is limited. I get my news from what most think is right wing intellectual news paper and a limited number of items on IDW and youtube. From my point of view, so far, the question was answered in the Brexit referendum, do you wish to give up your sovereignty to a EU an unelected bureaucracy. Are these "protests" like the protests that when on in the US after Trump's win?
The whole concept of getting "Free Stuff" from our Government is flawed from the beginning.
ScottforKing comments on Sep 1, 2019:
I learned over the years that just because I thought it so, didn't mean that everyone should think it too. Your logic is not flawed, however, we live in a democracy, a place where two wolves and one sheep get to vote on what's for dinner. Do you have any ideas on how to help at least one wolf to think differently?

ScottforKing comments on Aug 31, 2019:
Having people focus on an issue is a cleaver way of disguising the problem. The political class make this an issue about money, I see the problem is in the minds of citizens deciding whether to give up more freedom in life is really worth having someone else promise to take care of them forever, is worth it. Unfortunately the alternative is to take on more personal responsibility, which is a lot of hard work. I thought we lived in a democracy?

I grew up in the 1960's were I and several friends had air rifles, then 22's and later shot guns held in our easy rider rifle racks, unlocked above the head of our beds. As far as I remember there were no daily, weekly, monthly shootings. The difference today is that there are fewer rules, boundaries and limitations because that might hurt the feelings of our children? If we want to make real change, we need to change the culture, that takes time, at least thirty years, way too long for the political class which is focused on three years at best. Instead they talk about baning guns and back ground checks.
