Rights … Responsibilities … Reality …

“Waiting On The Night To Fall”, by “Casting Crowns”, from the album “Thrive” (2014)

Lots of upset people these days.

It doesn’t make any sense! …

“I have rights!” … “It’s not right!” … “It doesn’t make any sense!” … “The restrictions are more dangerous than the flu!” … “This is crazy!” … “Bloody government is never going to wake up!” … “It’s the economy that’s dying!” … “When are we going to get back to normal?” … “The people dying are all old folks who would have died anyway!” …  “It’s just the GD flu!” … “My wife was just admitted to hospital and they won’t let me see her!”

Lots of outrage and dissent across my counter these days. But really people, what did you expect? Do you really think you have any rights? Perhaps not, … thinking, that is.

Up here in our many little Canadas we have a Charter of Rights and Freedoms, granted by the benevolence of Papa Doc Trudeau (the late, unlamented, father of Boy Justin the Sock Puppet, popping up daily from his cottage to speak moistly at us … but no singing … singing is strictly out! Too forceful don’t-cha know, – spreading the moistly too far … sigh…).

That Charter of “Freedoms” enshrined our perpetual slavery to the whims of our betters in the halls of power. It spells out what we are “permitted” to do, “subject to such limits” as may occur to our masters from time to time.

Bimbo in a Hockey Jersey …

The Charter overwrote our inherited constitution, which was rooted in British Common Law descended through many centuries of tradition, and it worked as well as anything humans have used to structure society. It was a sort of semi-written, semi-traditional, Q R & O’s for civilians, looser and less precise than the regulations and orders governing the military for the last several hundred years.

British Common Law balanced the demands of the elite against the needs of the little folks in a rather even minded way down through the generations. A hierarchy of needs, rights, obligations and responsibilities, developed organically over long years of experience rather than by fashionable fiat and the “Monday Blahs”.

Social Distancing Enforcers and Informers rallying in Toronto …

Forty years ago we left that safe stable establishment and with much pomp and hoopla threw away all that stupid stuff inherited from our forefathers, choosing a Franco Totalitarian Model rooted in the French Revolution and assorted Communist regimes.

By this “deal” we exchanged a system of “everything which is not expressly forbidden is permitted” for a system of “everything that is not expressly permitted is forbidden … subject to the changing whims of our betters“.

So how’s that working out for Y’all, eh?

To paraphrase David Warren, animals have rights, under the law of the jungle. I approve of these, insofar as I approve of life on this planet. Hunters have rights, because they also are animals, and under the new regime, in our modern secular paradise we are all just animals, are we not?

BANG! An accident of random selection

An accident of random selection I am told, evolving into self referential god-hood.

And the bureaucratic predators have rights, thanks to our “sheepdogs”, the soldiers and police, for as long as the dogs are willing to obey the predators, and we have seen numerous times what happens when the dogs stop being willing to obey … military dictatorships seem to be one of the more common “rules of law” that humans come up with … backing the strong horse and all that.

And even the sheep have rights, for starters, they have the right to get as fat as possible until their time for utility arrives.

evolving into self referential god-hood

And then, they have the right to stand helplessly waiting for the arrival of the predators whenever the mood takes them, the right to do as they are instructed.

And now they have the right to say what they are allowed to say, in a PC way, and lately, more and more, the right to think whatever the government and the Social Media pundits approve of.

Take off the goggles of willful disbelief … it all actually makes perfect sense once you abandon the fantasy that this is all about keeping us healthy. It’d clearly about control, not viruses, and makes perfect sense through that lens. Listen to your masters you sheeple … well, there are none so blind, etc. etc.

Here below is a YouTube clip of a little homily from one of our more stellar actors, laying it on the line, all in character of course, and the irony is that the writers are trying to provoke outrage in the viewers and instead have hit the nail precisely on the head.

Or maybe that was their intent all along and they are pointing at every political player on the planet and yelling “THE EMPEROR IS NAKED!” You can’t always tell with media people and entertainers, just who is the target.

Yup … everything is on Netflix now, right … and sometimes, for a brief moment they nail it … then they just drift off down the road of life, deviance and despair, the fifty shades of moral relativism.

“House of Cards”, “Altered Carbon”, “Game of Thrones”, “Stranger Things”, … all started out good (or at least interesting) and then quickly descended into a cesspool of perversion, deviance and downright evil, all dressed up as “entertainment” with nice costumes and makeup …. just keep the sheeple distracted until we can tip them over the edge.

I prefer the narrative found in Psalm 39:


I Said, “I will be watchful of my ways,
for fear I should sin with my tongue;
I will put a curb on my lips,
when the wicked man stands before me”
I was dumb, silent and still
His prosperity stirred my grief.

My heart was burning within me;
At the thought of it, the fire blazed up
and my tongue burst into speech:
O LORD, you have shown me my end,
how short is the length of my days.
Now I know how fleeting is my life.

 Behold, Thou hast made my days as handbreadths,
And my lifetime as nothing in Thy sight,
Surely every man at his best is a mere breath. .
Surely every man walks about as a phantom;
Surely they make an uproar for nothing;
He amasses riches, and does not know who will gather them.

And now, Lord, for what do I wait?
My hope is in Thee.
Deliver me from all my transgressions;
Make me not the reproach of the foolish.

I have become dumb, I do not open my mouth,
Because it is Thou who hast done it.
Remove Thy plague from me;
Because of the opposition of Thy hand, I am perishing.

With reproofs Thou dost chasten a man for iniquity;
Thou dost consume as a moth what is precious to him;
Surely every man is a mere breath.

Hear my prayer, O LORD, and give ear to my cry;
Do not be silent at my tears;
For I am a stranger with Thee,
A sojourner like all my fathers.

Turn Thy gaze away from me, that I may smile again,
Before I depart and am no more.”


Not many smiles to be had here this morning, but there is a little laugh to be had over at David Warren’s latest, especially the very last paragraph “A HAPPY RECOLLECTION“.

Just a little rough patch

I have managed to get to my second cup … and realize that in all the current excitement it may have slipped under the radar that I am no “expert” in anything except perhaps pointing out that “The Emperor is Naked”.

So here is my first ever “official” disclaimer. I have encountered disclaimers similar to my disclaimer posted below on several sites both public and private, and even on a few government and “Healthcare” sites.

They exist in the same universe which includes “security” warnings at the end of emails to the effect that if the reader is not the intended recipient they must perform an immediate brain wipe, immediately destroy the offending email, and forget they ever saw the email sent in error.

So, in the spirit of Fear Uncertainty and Doubt and it’s evil twin Fear Of Missing Out here is the “official disclaimer” of the notmyfirstrodeo, cognitive dissonance in a progressive tyranny” blog site:

So with that all firmly out of the way, here is a short sample of agendas/narratives currently out in the open and moving forward as we hide in our homes and practice the recommended “Social Distancing” guidelines which we have been told by our “fearless” leaders.

Founder of The Communist Party of China greets one of the founders of the Communist Party of Canada. The 1970’s were so much fun.

1. Coming soon to a country near you … maybe even your country. Depending on which country, it may already be there … European Union, Great Britain, as well as Communist China and Canada, for example.

This item is the imminent rollout of mandatory vaccines which will contain a concoction of noxious chemical adjuvants, man-made deadly viruses, nanotechnology, biomarkers, and so forth. Easy to follow up on for anyone with access to the web and a clear head.

2. Next, is the installation of 5G cell towers all across the globe which are currently being deployed with eye witness accounts by the thousands in addition to laws being passed to increase the speed of the rollout of 5G. (They’re justification will be that we need the bandwidth since everyone is now staying at home on their tech devices).

Just follow up on “Where are the largest concentrations of installed 5G technology on the planet?”

3. Then we have human biometrics to verify those who have both been tested and have taken the corona virus vaccine. Companies are currently developing electronic bracelets to verify whether you can leave your home and go back to work. Just follow up on biometric markers in vaccines allegedly being developed by Microsoft, et al.

4. We are witnessing first hand day by day as I write, a global economic reset and a dramatic increase on reliance on governments for handouts, ushering in a widespread welfare state (more than it already is in Canada) and diverging huge class differences between the rich elite, the “Brights”, numbered globally in the thousands, and the poor masses, numbered globally in the billions (that would be us, the stupid peasants, in case you might wonder what I am talking about).

5. Current dramatic increases in the use of digitally backed currency linked to biometrics and social crediting. Everything will be tracked and taxed. We are now being actively discouraged from using cash because “cash carries the virus”. Physical cash will soon cease to exist.

Poster Girl Greta wants you all to get serious about this … Right Now … stop burning hydrocarbons and while you are at it maintain a socially acceptable two meter distance from each other.

6. Social distancing through means of quarantining people, kidnapping them from their homes (as outlined clearly by the WHO), snitches get rewards mantras, phone tips lines, apathetic humans, widespread fear of germs and viruses, destruction of social connection, banning of mass gatherings and protests.

Where did all the “global warming” protests, anti oil, and rail blockades, suddenly disappear to? Government is ushering in virtual reality templates to replace physical interaction at a scale we’ve never witnessed in history before this Plandemic.

7. We are now witnessing the choreographed and managed battle between the forces of evil (Bill Gates, Clintons, Dark Cabal, WHO, The United Nations, The CDC, Hollywood Pedo Ring, Celebrities, the first beast system), and the forces of bad (Trump, His Administration, White Hats, The Military Industrial Complex, Quanon, the second beast system).

We are living in a real-time Netflix docudrama. Neither group – bad or evil – have our best interest, the interests of us little peons, at heart. One will attempt to create an Orwellian dystopia, while the other will promise us a utopian paradise. Both are traps

So there you have it … 7 real time agendas, 7 “narratives” for our entertainment, all while we are thoroughly distracted by the magicians patter, (like magicians use when they tell us to “look over here while I pull a fast trick over there”).



its all so crazy making …
