Rob Ford was quickly UN-liked by many. Some didn’t even like him from the start.
ROB FORD, THE UNVARNISHED TRUTH-I’m torn between the impulse to massage the memory of the man into something soothing and palatable, and the impulse to tell the truth: that Ford could be a terrible, terrible person.

Rob Ford, 1969-2016: A legacy he never intended
If I have to alight on one incident of surpassing significance amidst the mayhem of Rob Ford’s mayoralty, I find myself bypassing the chaos of the scrums outside his office, the humiliations of the trials, the self-destructive behaviour, and the endless examples of how this curious man coarsened Toronto’s civic discourse.
Rob Ford is dead. The former Toronto mayor died of cancer this morning, at 46 years old. According to news reports and social media, we are in mourning, as always, expected to politely and respectfully honour men when they pass, even if they were bad men.
Rob Ford was a bad man.
The founders of the United States designed a system in which voters elected smart people and those smart people ran the country. They called it a republic.Over time, money corrupted the system. Rich people became the real power. The rich controlled the media, and that was enough to control the minds of voters. Let’s call that system a type of “economic fascism.” By that I mean the real power is the top 1% (as opposed to one dictator) and the rest of the country has no real power.

I don’t agree that this election/selection is much different from the others, just one with new technology.
A one party system ran the United States, and the United States ran the world. The US had checks and balances — governing required consensus, and the people were freed from kings. To protect speech, the framers left out a rule against conspiracies to monopolize the vote.

Fascinating discussion on how humans, when emphasizing uber individualism or liberalism, lose their social order or ability to collaborate as a collective.
NHL hockey is in the entertainment business, and Canadian teams winning is bad for American TV business. That’s not a theory, that’s a conspiracy fact.
Last week, to great fanfare, preliminary rosters for the 2016 World Cup of Hockey were unveiled. And as usual, Team Canada stood out as being ridiculously stacked, boasting so much talent that the biggest story were the perennial All-Stars who wouldn’t make the cut.It was a nice moment for Canadian fans, one where they could feel good about the nation’s hockey prowess. Then the NHL regular season resumed, and those feelings immediately vanished. Because as a glance at this year’s standings will confirm, Canada’s NHL teams are terrible.

More money is all we hear from the public service. As we slowly externalize our jobs as parents, we realise we have to give up more of our income to “experts” or technocrats. We are living in a technocratic fascistic state, to be sure. It’s not coming, it’s already here (fascism does not mean Hitler, it means the merging of governments and corporations into one entity).
My recent experience is guidance counsellors are not all that effective at all. Why would a child in elementary school need one? Are parents completely left out or useless?

Even knowing how to fix them won’t help you much.
In 1973 Dr. D. Powles observed: “The major contributing factor toward improved health over the past 200 years has been improved nutrition. Nearly 90% of the total decline in the death rate in children between 1860 and 1965 due to whooping cough, scarlet fever, diphtheria and measles occurred before the introduction of antibiotics and widespread immunization against diphtheria” (Powles, 1973).
Epidemiologist Dr. G.T. Stewart made a similar statement which was reported in Lancet of May 18,1968; and prior to this Sir Robert McCarrison, the great English physician, wrote:
“Obsessed with the invisible microbe, virus, protozoa as all important excitants of disease, subservient to laboratory methods of diagnosis, hidebound by our system of nomenclature, we often forget the most fundamental of all rules for the physician, that the right kind of food (nutrition) is the most important single factor in the promotion of health and the wrong kind of food the most important single factor in the promotion of disease” (McCarrison, 1936).
Great call on the modern utopia known as subdivisions.
