      If Trump declares an emergency to fund the border wall, how many minutes into a Democratic administration would the declare health care, guns and climate change a national emergency?

      For the past 3 days I’ve been having a lot of trouble getting on this blog to post. It’s very frustrating & even hubby’s messages are going to my spam folder. So, it’s probably just me. Same thing happens if I go to get a link & then try to go back and post it. grrrr.

      If you don’t hear from me it’s not because I don’t care.

      The ‘white privilege’ term gets pulverized by Jordan Peterson. The shallow logic which underpins postmodern bafflegab starts around the 1:45 mark and continues for nine minutes. This man is a social scientist who understands neurology as it relates to behavior. He has studied theology, philosophy, totalitarian regimes, and as a clinical psychologist has come up with concrete methods of improving the lives of others.

      @ yenta-fada:

      from the comments

      My great-grandfather came to America from the Ukraine in the late 1920s. He worked in a zinc mine his entire life lived in a house owned by the same company bought food from a store owned by the same company. His life was beyond wretched. His brother was crushed between two couplings on a transport train and he watched him die as they pulled the headers apart. My grandmother was a child in the early 1930s during the Depression. She used to beg for coal from the engineers who pulled into the transport stations for the zinc mines. My Uncle Walter was her older brother and used to fight off all the other kids while she picked up as much could as she could fit in a bucket and run back to the house to keep it warm. Their lives where misery… what they sacrificed for this country and for their survival can never be truly accounted for in the modern era. And when I hear the spoiled sjws and the leftist Communist pigs talk about privilege, I have no other recourse but the wish for war. These arrogant little spoiled leftist Marxist brats have nothing to offer anyone… they are the epitome of the Animal Farm. It is far past time to make them realize the error of their ways. Forgive me Jordan… but I can anticipate the truth of this. These people take freedoms and delegate as though they have the right… they’re going to pay for it, there is no other recourse.

      Why are you stuck on this? I’m trying to tell you that Peterson is anything but a pedestrian thinker. I’ve listened to a couple of his classroom lectures on Jung, watched him atomize others in debate, seen him say when he needed to give something more thought. Everytime
      I listen to him I see something fresh that I had not considered.

      You read much more widely, so maybe this is just stale bread for you. It is not true for me. I saw that he took on the whole lefty faculty and lefty student body of the University of Toronto calling out their nonsense. And he WON. He’s lecturing all over the world speaking to 2,500 people who pay to hear him live when he leaves free you tube videos up on a regular basis. I think he has great knowledge and great integrity. His book alone is making him rich.

      He’s a rare bird and you can argue with me. I’m entitled to my own madness. {{eagle}}

      Actually Peterson advocates for peace while showing how difficult that truly is. He’s a rigorous thinker. The antithesis of a snowflake.
      He has a horror of Marxists and totalitarians. People are LISTENING to him because he defies their sloppy reasoning skills without insulting them personally.

      I’ve read that Obummer declared 12 national emergencies. I recall a VERY selective government shutdown where he closed the National Parks and Veterans Affairs, but left everything that mattered to him open. Other times I believe he confiscated money but I have no linky.

      @ eaglesoars:

      Peterson recognizes that change only happens at the level of the individual. This is something that drives him and he is driven. He is not a military expert and makes no claims that he is a geopolitical
      analyst. He searches for meaning in the gulags, the concentration camps, and in the genocides of the 20th century. He despises modern Marxists and tells everyone why. He delves into religions and myths looking for human archetypes. So in that sense he is a historian of mans’ search for meaning. He reads MANY current papers in psychology which still contain studies of rat behavior.

      He says that juvenile rats ENJOY fighting with each other for PLAY. It is not aggression in young rats, it’s fun. Watching the rats a stronger young rat can beat another young rat in play. However, if the weaker rat does not win 30 to 40% of the time, he will not engage in this play. So the stronger rat learns that he has to let the other one win sometimes if he’s going to get the reward of playing the game. From there this particular paper goes on to say that there ends up being a hard wired sense of fair play in the young rats who want to have a rewarding good time.

      Exact same thing here. Besides all the illegal immigrants crossing on foot ever day, there’s a new ooze of leftist sleaze. Now anybody who was ever a Canadian citizen and lives elsewhere permanently, e.g. Lebanon, will be allowed to vote even if they never set foot in Canada ever again. That includes all returning ISIS fighters or non returning ones who move elsewhere. It’s a substitute for the dead voters of Chicago.

      I’ve never heard of anybody giving up Canadian citizenship. The muzz all love having it. My muzz BIL and Cdn. SIL haven’t lived here regularly or paid Canadian taxes for decades. But this is where they come for free medical care and I KNOW he gets an automatic Old Age supplement since he is over 65. He took out citizenship when he went to University here. It’s always been a great passport to travel on. He and SIL used to come to Canada every 6 months or so to maintain being eligible for benefits I think. Neither one of them ever responds to a direct question, but one other SIL occasionally tells me stuff.

      All their money is in Switzerland, so no taxes on that either.

      The French Canadians were famous for applying for unemployment benefits and then going to Florida for the winter. The STOOPID socialists sent them their unemployment checks to their Florida addresses. Now it’s all direct deposit of course. Leftists will take infinitely.

      The Canadian Elite (mainly in Quebec, hence repeated French PMs) did not want a Canadian breakup. They made billions sucking resource money out of the rest of Canada. Alberta always got the shaft. I would have been glad to see Quebec go, but we obviously have our own small but very deep state.

      I’m pretty sure it was Carroll, maybe it was C.S. Lewis. Parable about a wax moth that gets into a beehive because the bees got lazy, the young moths start living off the work of the bees and view the honey as an infinite resource. Hive starts to die, the beekeeper finds the moth larvae and purges the hive.

      It was the infinite resource that applied here. To the point that the moth larvae would puncture cells just to show it’s infinite availability

      Our confederation is becoming broken. Quebec has always been a taker and never a giver. Trouble is that every time that we get a Quebec prime minister they get more goodies. Very few prime ministers in the past 50 years (one maybe two?) have come from other parts of the country.

      The sad part is that the big cities all vote Liberal for the majority and nothing ever really changes now. I don’t think Quebec will ever leave. Things are too good for them.

      They started a family and that is where people come from.
      The next day she asked her mother the same question. The answer was,
      In the past there were monkeys and that is who we evolved from.
      The next day the little girl explained her confusion to her father.

      House Dems Reportedly Set To Ditch Subcommittee On Terrorism In Favor Of One Solely Focused On Trump Probes

      As the new chair of the House Foreign Affairs Committee, Rep. Eliot Engel (D-NY) told The New Yorker he is getting rid of the Subcommittee on Terrorism in order to replace it with a subcommittee to investigate President Donald Trump and how his personal finances have influenced his foreign policy.

      The Subcommittee on Terrorism was established after the terrorist attacks on September 11, but according to Engel there was not much interest in keeping it.

      “We just thought, if we’re going to do something relevant in this era where Congress is going to reassert itself, where there are so many questionable activities of this Administration vis-à-vis foreign policy, that it made sense to have this,” he said.

      One of the things the subcommittee is planning on looking at Trump’s private meeting he had with Russian President Vladmir Putin.

      “It’s been many months since Helsinki, and we still don’t know what Putin and Trump talked about,” Engel continued.
