Friday's Ride - 1957 Triumph Thunderbird Hotrod

Scheer: The NRA, NFA shill - bringing US style gun laws to Canada

Read Scheer's Gun Policy

Launch a review of the criminal code and repeal all federal regulations pertaining to firearms ownership, usage and transportation which do not do the following: ensure that Canada’s firearms laws respect the rights of honest firearms owners, recognize the fact that hunting and sports shooting are an important part of Canadian culture and history, and empower police to concentrate on real criminals who are a threat to the public. 

More specifically, I will:
  • Define terms in legislation – The legislation that my government will enact will specify actual legal definitions for variants to ensure that those unfamiliar with firearms cannot decide on the legality of a gun based on how it looks. They will instead be required to make determinations based on the actual mechanics of firearms.
  • Repeal restrictions on magazines like the 10/22 - Like firearms classifications, magazines are also subject to arbitrary rule changes from RCMP bureaucrats. Many of the rules are not based on common sense. I will replace these rules with a system based on advice and input from firearms associations.
  • Repeal the UN Firearms-Marking Regulations – The Liberals are threatening to submit to the UN markings protocol. This will have a devastating effect on the Canadian firearms market and impose new and undue burdens on law-abiding firearms owners. As well, according to law-enforcement experts, there is zero evidence that it will have any positive effect on fighting criminals. I will repeal these regulations and ensure that they do not come into force.
  • Strengthen the Firearms Advisory Council – I will ensure that this group of firearms experts has meaningful input on government policy decisions. I will also ensure that the members of the council include representatives from the stakeholder groups who would be affected by those decisions.
  • Decriminalize administrative infractions such as late renewal of a recently-expired firearms licence. -- As the regulations currently stand, a person becomes a criminal for allowing their licence to expire. That is a complete waste of government and police resources. I will institute a grace period for lapsed five-year permits, wherein you won’t be able to purchase anything new, but you will not be subject to criminal prosecution or face the possibility of a jail sentence.
  • Create a Firearms Ombudsman – In order to ensure that any new Government proposals and initiatives are always seen through the lens of honest firearms owners, I will create an Ombudsman to advocate on behalf of the firearms community. This person will have the authority to review any proposed regulation and interact with the Public Safety Minister on behalf of individual firearms owners and the various firearms organizations.

Thursday's Ride - GMD - "Marie Pierre" 12.5m Catamaran

And the rich are undermining democracy

William Rivers Pitt | The Batman Villain Behind Cambridge Analytica


Well lookee here, now. We got ourselves a no-shit Batman villain. He is a billionaire computer genius who sees the world as a clockwork of hyperdetailed algorithms, and is often described as "reclusive" and "secretive" by the press. He describes himself politically as "Libertarian," but his actions suggest he is just another person who doesn't know what the word "libertarian" actually means.
A list of his beliefs and activities include:
• He believes the Clintons ran drugs out of Mena Airport in Arkansas and had opponents murdered;
• He peddles undistilled hate for immigrants and Muslims on a variety of hard-right propaganda sites;
• He donates millions of dollars to fringe candidates like Ted Cruz and Donald Trump, and is in fact a significant part of the reason Trump became president;
• He believes the nuclear attacks on Hiroshima and Nagasaki were ultimately a health benefit to the Japanese people;
• He denies the existence of racist white people while denouncing the 1964 Civil Rights Act;
• He actively disrupts the discussion of climate change with deliberate disinformation churned out by think tanks he finances;
…and, of course, he holds to the Randian notion that human worth can only be measured in terms of dollar value. This villain, like all effective villains, hides in plain sight, sending his many minions to do his bidding and spend his money with the ultimate goal of recoding the algorithms of politics and power to suit his own ends. What those ends are specifically, no one has said. Perhaps he himself does not know. That does not stop him.

Bravo Emma

He has no clue and loves Donald Trump

Ford read a speech about the Sunshine List for two and a half minutes, and took just five questions, with answers ranging from vague to nearly incomprehensible. 

Sunshine List gives Doug Ford election year ammunition. Watch how he uses it

At a news conference, Ford rails against 'fat cats and insiders' but offers no plans for change

He will come after those who need it most

Tuesday's Ride - 1971 Chevy Vega GT "Jega"

Don't jump to conclusions - there is enough blame to go around to all parties and all levels of government



You wonder why there is discontent, backlash, pervasive spin and lies at all levels, why the far right rises? It's all about who is being taxed, and who is not and the tales and lies that follow.

Six Undeniable Facts of Life


1. Don't educate your children to be rich.  Educate them to be happy, so when they grow up they will know the value of things, and not just their price.

2. "Eat your food as your medicines, otherwise you have to eat medicines as your food."

3. The one who loves you will never leave you for another, because, even if there are 100 reasons to give up, he, or she, will find that one reason to hold on.

4. There is a big difference between a human being and being human.

5. You are loved when you are born.  You will be loved when you die.  In between, only YOU are in charge of your life.

6. If you just want to walk fast, then walk alone.  However, if you want to walk far, then walk together.

Thanks Kerry

An Old Pilot's Aviation Philosophy....

I think I might have screwed up. Several of us local retired pilots were asked to address a junior high gathering put on by the PTA. I was the only speaker to show up, so I had the stage to myself. I talked about staying in school, getting good grades and all that usual bullshit; and since I had plenty of time because those other guys didn't show, I threw it open for questions.
The last one asked was, "Can you give us a couple of your life's philosophical beliefs?”

 
I said, “That's an easy one. Looking back over my almost 7 decades, I believe I've spent close to 90% of my earnings on booze and whores. The rest I just wasted."

 
I was escorted out without getting to finish my last two rules to live by:

 
1) If it flies, floats, or fucks, it's cheaper to rent it.

 
2) If it's got tits or tires, you're gonna have problems with it.

 
I hope they invite me back next year so I can finish.

 
They need to know this stuff!

 
Thanks Richard

TRUMP MADE MILLIONS OF DOLLARS FROM DRUG MONEY LAUNDERING IN PANAMA: REPORT


President Donald Trump made tens of millions of dollars in profits by allowing Colombian drug cartels and other groups to launder money through a Trump-affiliated hotel in Panama, according to a new investigation by the organization Global Witness.
In the early 2000s, Trump was having financial difficulties and began selling his high-profile name to real estate developers around the world, the report said. One of these developed Panama’s Trump Ocean Club International Hotel and Tower.
The report said the drug cartels purchased hotel units to hide the origins of money earned through drug trafficking and other criminal activity, and Trump is estimated to have earned tens of millions of dollars from the deals.
Some observers are saying it is time for Congress to begin investigating the president’s finances and potential conflicts of interest.

Profound Thoughts...An absolute "Must Read"

Steve Jobs, the CEO of Apple, died a billionaire.  Here are some of his last thoughts and words:

"I reached the pinnacle of success in the business world.  In others’ eyes, my life is the epitome of success.

However, aside from work, I have little joy.  In the end, wealth is only a fact of life that I have become accustomed to.

At this moment, I am on my sick bed, and recalling my life.  I realize that all of the recognition and wealth in which I took so much pride, have become meaningless in the face of my impending death.

You can employ someone to drive a car for you, and to make money for you, but you cannot employ anyone to bear illness for you.

Material things, when lost, can be found, but the one thing, that can never be found when it is lost, is your health and eventually your life itself.

When a person goes into the operating room, he realizes that there is one book that he has yet to finish reading, "The Book of Healthy Life".

Whatever stage in life we are at currently, in time we all face that day when the curtain comes down.

Treasure love for your family, love for your spouse and love for your friends.  Treat yourself well, and cherish others.

As we grow older, and hopefully wiser, we slowly realize that wearing a $3,000.00 or a $30.00 watch is not important.  The time is the same.  Whether we carry a $300.00 or $30.00 wallet/handbag, the contents are the same.

Whether we drink a bottle of $100 or $10 wine, the hangover is the same.  Whether the house we live in is 300 or 3,000 sq. ft., the loneliness is the same.  Whether you fly first class or economy, if the plane goes down, you go down with it.

You will come to realize that true inner happiness does not come from the material things of this world.

Therefore, treasure your buddies, old friends, brothers and sisters.  Chat often, laugh, sing songs with them.  Talk about north-south-east-west, or heaven & earth.  That is true happiness.”

Shame on the press

Andrew Mitrovica @AndrewMitrovica
The parliamentary press gallery has spent more time and energy covering Atwal than it ever has paying attention to rampant child poverty in this country. Ponder that disgrace.

Stop lying about these children and stop trolling them

Children know, my grandchildren know. They are 11 and 10, they live in relative safety in Canada compared to the gun environment of America. 

The attacks by the NRA terrorist organization against these children is unforgivable.

Dr. Geezer

An old geezer became very bored in retirement and decided to open a medical clinic.

 
He put a sign up outside that said: "Dr. Geezer's Clinic. Get your
treatment for $500, if not cured, get back $1,000."

Doctor "Young", who was positive that this old geezer didn't know beans about medicine, thought this would be a great opportunity to get $1,000. So he went to Dr. Geezer's Clinic.

Dr. Young: "Dr. Geezer, I have lost all taste in my mouth. Can you please help me??"

Dr. Geezer: "Nurse, please bring medicine from box 22 and put 3 drops in Dr Young's mouth.”

 
Dr. Young: Aaagh!! -- "This is Gasoline!"

Dr. Geezer: "Congratulations!

You've got your taste back. That will be $500.

Dr. Young gets annoyed and goes back after a couple of days figuring to recover his money.

Dr. Young: "I have lost my memory, I cannot remember anything."

Dr. Geezer: "Nurse, please bring medicine from box 22 and put 3 drops in the patient's mouth."

Dr. Young: "Oh, no you don't, -- that is Gasoline!"

Dr. Geezer: "Congratulations! You've got your memory back. That will be $500."

Dr. Young (after having lost $1,000) leaves angrily and comes back after several more days.

Dr. Young: "My eyesight has become weak --- I can hardly see
anything!!!!"
Dr. Geezer: "Well, I don't have any medicine for that so,

"Here's your $1,000 back." (giving him a $10 bill)

Dr. Young: "But this is only $10!"

 
Dr. Geezer: "Congratulations! You got your vision back! That will be $500."

Moral of story -- Just because you're "Young" doesn't mean that you can outsmart an "old Geezer"

Remember: Don't make old people mad. We don't like being old in the first place, so it doesn't take much to tick us off.

Thanks Norman
