  1. : Fwd: A clever lawyer A lawyer, who had a wife and 12 children, needed to move because his rental agreement was terminated by the owner, who wanted to reoccupy the home. When he said he had 12 children, no one would rent a home to him because they felt that the children would destroy the place. He couldn't say he had no children because he couldn't lie (as we all know, lawyers cannot, and do not lie). So he sent his wife for a walk to the cemetery with 11 of their kids. He took the remaining one with him to see rental homes with the real estate agent. He loved one of the homes and the price was right. The agent asked:” How many children do you have?" He answered: "Twelve." The agent asked, "Where are the others?" The lawyer, with his best courtroom sad look, answered, "They're in the cemetery with their mother." MORAL: It's not necessary to lie; one has only to choose the right words. -- Make every day a happy memory.

  2. Enter Justin Trudeau and bill C-10 “Under different names, wearing different guises, communism is a rising threat” Communism is the idea that refuses to go away, no matter how many times it is attempted only to end in horrific levels of death and violence. It appeals to resentment, to a demand for the benefits of productive activity without engaging in that activity ourselves. In many ways, it is similar to race-based fascism, in that it often targets a specific group (Kulaks,) notes that they are successful, and then – rather than encourage people to learn from the success of that group – demonizes them, calls them "parasites" or "leeches," and mobilizes resentment, jealously, hate, and ultimately death and destruction. Yet, as the threat of Communism rises, our culture is dangerously unable to see it. As Jordan Peterson once noted, our society is hyper-vigilant when it comes to seeing the threat of approaching fascism, but lacks that same discernment when it comes to Communism. We are "over-attuned" to seeing fascism everywhere, particularly since the biggest fascist regimes of the 20th century in Germany and Italy were largely unique to the specific post-war situation in those two nations, with many aspects that simply aren’t applicable to our country or much of the modern world. Not to mention that the Western world the communists so desperately want to overthrow mobilized to fight and defeat fascism. The conservation movement – once something that united most people in pursuit of a cleaner environment – has been largely co-opted by a much more radical "environmentalist" movement that often closely mimics what communists have been saying for some time, with capitalism demonized, the role of the nation-state denigrated, and a clear push for a redistribution of wealth from rich countries to poorer countries. Marxist-based "critical race theory" seeks to divide Western societies on the basis of race, substituting race-conflict for class-conflict, and attempting to indoctrinate an entire generation into hating their own history, and opposing the idea of capitalism, democracy, and rational inquiry. And, under the "justification" of fighting "hate speech," governments around the world are launching a crackdown on free speech and free expression that moves closer and closer to what we see in Communist China, with Bill C-10 being the latest and most vivid example here in Canada. Not to mention, the role Communist China itself plays in attempting to influence countries and expand communist authoritarianism around the globe. Given all of that, we must relearn our ability to notice and counteract the rise of communism. Following WW2, Canada, the UK, the USA, and our allies were able to stop the rise of communism through vigilance and an understanding that the true agenda of the communists would lead to deaths numbering in the tens of millions. Today, with communism having largely rebranded, we must wake up before it’s too late.
