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”.

A funny thing happened on the way to Global Warming .
ScottforKing comments on Nov 6, 2019:
Didn't you hear, the threat is no longer global warming but climate change! That covers whatever happens, "they" will be right whatever happens.

Beautifully put. It is the thing that should be first thought about whenever we call for more action against another nation today but is too seldom considered.
Sad but true.
ScottforKing comments on Oct 17, 2019:
The fact of the matter is that if we had a political class with a different mission, lets say to just do fewer stupid things than they did last year, if that were to happen it might start a recession. The people we hire to be our care takers are not stupid, they just do stupid things in order to keep us mostly employed, keep us busy so we don’t get into too much trouble.

ScottforKing comments on Oct 10, 2019:
While reading the article I had a thought about the political class today. If any one of them can not tell me what is the long term goal of their party - a hundred year goal - then either they do not know or, for an unknown reason, will not say. If one of them refuses to say, it is more likely, from my experience, that they will attack their opponent’s character, not their policy. If none of the parties of the political party battle has any principals left, then it's character assassination all around.

ScottforKing comments on Oct 5, 2019:
I have just read through the comments and it makes me believe that there are several among us at the IDW that believe that climate change is man made and furthermore that is a fact, without debating their theory that is only supported by their science that leads to their conclusion. I also believe that many of the so-called right have also not bothered to spend the time understanding the same issues that lead the so-called leftists to the idea that anyone on the so-called right are climate deniers.

I think a better question might be what? The what is the ideological change than continues to happen within our Western culture, what we all together metaphorically buy in the market place of ideas, and right now socialism is the dominant idea. It has been said countless times before in history, if you don't plan your life, someone else will. Unfortunately for lazy people, that requires responsibility, which even a fool knows it means more work. Oh look, over there, there is someone who promises that they will do all the work for me for free and look after me forever and ever. Just say'n.
