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, β€œIf I were King”.

Ah, finally an application that makes sense. There is obviously a need that the market filled and will no doubt improve on over time. I still have a problem with self serving politicians try to force everyone else to do the same in countries in the Western World where this makes little or no sense. Nice hat though.

ScottforKing comments on Jan 10, 2020:
HiQ fooled me once and then I saw that he spoke the same language a few leftists I have met in person. My experience is that leftists don't have the confidence in themselves to listen to another point of view so they use terms like lol a lot and change the subject when it is obvious they lack knowledge on a subject being debated. They appear to be insecure and immature and so unable to hold more than one conflicting point of view on any subject.

As the forces of stupid play out their games, people of all races and faiths are falling into the magic and wishing each other a Merry Christmas.

ScottforKing comments on Nov 16, 2019:
Each of us must establish clearly defined rules, boundaries and limitations that one will have with anyone in their life other than themselves. So if anyone were to cross your line, as it were, clearly defined consequences must be carried out. That's called living by your principals, and it's easier said than done because it's you who has to do all the changing and that's work. At first it's hard work but it's always worth it and sometimes what you become can effect the very people you must be tough with now.

I think to understand what Don Cherry was trying to say Monday night, one has to understand where he comes from, what his point of view is. I was a fire fighter forty years ago and worked along side men who served in World War Two, they were tough spirited, gruff men who would be ninety or more today. Don comes from a Canada which at the end of the war almost everyone knew someone who served and someone who died, on foreign soil, so that they who lived there and friends and family back home could know freedom. They were the greatest generation of men I have ever known. Canada as we know it here today is because of the sacrifices of these men and we should all honour them. I agree with Don’s spirit, even when it’s hidden by his gruffness.

Democracy has always been about two wolves and a sheep voting on what's for dinner. As for how to tell when a politician is lying, that's easy, their lips are moving. The socialist ideology for the last hundred years has been sold on the premise that the League of Nations, which failed and led to the United Nations was about trying to insure that there would never be another great war. Nationalism was determined to be bad, diversity good and it didn't matter what the people in the various countries thought or felt. Bring on the slogans and empty platitudes, we will persuade the proletariat, they will submit eventually to "our" great experiment.
