Here's What We're Gonna Do
October 19, 2010 @ 12:18
Sorry folks, but it's the same old excuse. I've been very busy lately and haven't had the necessary time to devote to CanadianThinker.com
Meanwhile, I've thoroughly enjoyed most of the comments that have been posted under my last posting from October 6th. (check them out)
I found one especially intriguing. It suggests that rather than waiting for my next posting, you the readers should send me postings.
Guest bloggers so to speak.
I love this idea. So over the next few days why don't you write some stuff and send it to me at email@example.com and I'll post it. With pictures and everything.
I know you've heard it before, but I do plan on getting back to this once the dust settles, but for the time being, why you don't help me out.
I know of lot of you use bullshit names for whatever reason, and that's OK. Write anything you want, e-mail it to me, and I'll post them like regular postings.
How to you like this idea? Get me through the week and then I get back to the CanadianThinker keyboard on the weekend.
Who knows, maybe even some of my radio / TV buds will help me out.
Let's be doing it. Touch me where it counts.
Angry Middle Aged White Guy
September 30, 2010 @ 07:28
You want to know one of the things that's really pissin' me off these days? It's the way the phrase "angry middle aged white guy" is being thrown around.
I've been called an "angry middle aged white guy" many times on this blog, but that hasn't bothered me so much as the frequency that it's being used in general these days.
It's one of those great defense mechanisms. If you're not a white guy, or you're a white guy who doesn't like what another white guy says or stands for, you call him an "angry middle aged white guy."
How screwy is that?
There's nothing better to shut down dialogue than accusing someone of being a racist or an "angry middle aged white guy."
That's what it means. By calling someone an "angry middle aged white guy" you're basically calling him intolerant, and that's what really bothers me. The meaning behind it, the intent in using it, the double standard it represents and the basic acceptance of it.
Would it be acceptable to use the term "angry middle aged black guy, or "angry middle aged Asian guy?" You know the answer. It's a flat out no!
If you used the above terms you'd be accused of distinguishing between races. You'd be told there's no need to add the race part to the accusation, "angry middle aged guy" would be enough.
But when it comes to adding "white guy," for some reason it's OK, and this leads to another dose of irony.
I've often been told that when "white" is used in a phrase it's acceptable because of all the years of oppression that white people have inflicted upon every other race on earth.
Hey, I'm not going to argue with facts, but what I will question is what is to be gained by catching up or getting even, because that's what it is.
If we're told on one hand that distinguishing people by race is wrong, why is it OK to throw around the term "angry middle aged white guy" on the other?
If distinguishing people by race was wrong in the past, why is it OK now? Seems rather regressive to me.
Believe me, I know how this works. There are people who are going to read this and twist it into something that it isn't. They'll probably accuse me of being an "angry middle aged white guy because I don't like being called an "angry middle aged white guy."
But that's OK, because I can look in the mirror and be proud that it hasn't shut me up.

I had a video camera that I bought back in the 90's and I have no idea where it is. But that's only part of the problem. Here's the biggest part.
I have about half a dozen tapes filled with wonderful family memories that are on those tapes and I have no way to transfer them.
It was a Sony Super 8, I can't tell you the model number but the pictures I've provided show the tape format it used.
If anyone out there has a camera I could borrow or buy I'd love to hear from you.
I understand there are places you can go and have the tapes transferred at a hefty cost, but I'd rather transfer the taps to digital myself and only grab what I need or want.
Having said that, if you can recommend some "transfer places" I'll appreciate that as well.
Loving ya's all, each and every one of ya.

Officer Bubbles - A Great Canadian Thinker
July 17, 2010 @ 14:52
"I'm just trying to keep people happy."
Who is she trying to kid? If the sweet and innocent Courtney Winkels was trying to keep people happy during the G-20 summit, why didn't she turn her ass around and blow the bubbles into the "people" instead of two police officers.
Good for Constable Adam Josephs who probably had to put up with his fair share of crap from every mis-informed punk agitator who slithered onto the streets of Toronto a few weeks ago.
Anybody who really thinks Courtney Winkels was just an innocent little protestor who was abused by police needs their head read.
She knew exactly what she was doing. She was in the face of the police with the sole intention of getting a reaction... and she got one.
The first question that comes to my mind is this. Would she walk up to anyone else in the street and start blowing bubbles in their face? Probably not because it's invading someone else's territory, ironically the type of thing the likes of Winkels would definately protest against.
I love the way the some of the media has tried to paint a picture of a big bad police officer pickin' on a fun filled woman who wasn't doing anything wrong.
Officer Bubbles hit the nail on the head when he accused Winkels of baiting police. That's exactly what she was doing, and like so many of the other assholes that crept onto the streets of Toronto during the G-20 she got exactly what she asked for, she got arrested.
But not for this actual incident interestingly enough, believe it or not after she was warned by Officer Bubbles to put the bubbles away, which she did, she was arrested for something else.
You'd think the moron would have gotten the message.
Part of me was hoping fallout from the G-20 was over, but no such luck. There is still a band of assholes out there trying to make the police look bad with their selective videos and second hand stories.
And what about the goof ball who steps into the conversation between Constable Josephs and sweet little Courtney and accuses of Josephs of not showing any respect.
Is this guy for real? Is he that much of a imbecile to not appreciate what the cops had to go through that weekend and that the last thing needed was some punk blowing bubbles in their faces.
Man oh man.
The asshole brigade should stop releasing these videos because all its doing to is driving a bigger wedge between rational thinking people and yahoos.
Toronto should be proud of Constable Adam Josephs.
Happy Canada Day Everyone
