It Begins: Canadian Gov Rolls Out Points To Reward Good Citizens

07/16/2017194 Comments

I warned you in 2010, when I published Episode 145 of my podcast, “You Are Being Gamed.”

I warned you in 2015, when I released my video on “Sesame Credit: China’s Creepy New Social Engineering Experiment.”

I warned you last year in these very pages, when I penned my article detailing how “The CIA’s ‘Pokémon Go’ App is Doing What the Patriot Act Can’t.”

Throughout these warnings, the threat has been clear: Behavioral science is merging with game design, creating virtual Skinner boxes that have been carefully crafted to keep millions of people doing meaningless, repetitive tasks for thousands of hours. Those techniques are being studied by (and in some cases, like in China, implemented by) governments to better shape and manipulate the behaviors of their citizens. And this merger of behavioral science, gaming and government will be one of the biggest threats to free humanity in the history of the human species.

But you didn’t listen, did you? You thought, like so many others have thought before, in so many different contexts, that it could never happen here. It could never happen to us.

Well, guess what? It’s happening. Worldwide, they’re rolling out the governmental behavior control games, and they’re not even hiding it. The nightmare future has arrived.

    One of the dangers of government healthcare is that government can start to regulate your behavior for “the public good”. After all, a healthy citizen will get sick less and, thus (at least theoretically), cost the public less money. I get the feeling apps like this are the precursor to that.

    • wingsuitfreak says:

      I think it has nothing to do with health. It’s the perfect storm of control, profits, and culling the population. In the United Nazis, our healthcare plans will ensure that even more people can be culled from the herd by greater access to our third leading cause of death. 1st if you count all the ways our medical system contributes to cancer and heart disease. Why have just eugenics when you can have eugenics with profits? And of course, those who can’t control themselves always love to control others. Ultimately though, no one can control you without your consent. In that sense, I’m all for these apps culling out the zombies who never question authority. Freedom will ultimately win irregardless of what the powers that be do.

      • ray.m says:

        “I’m all for these apps culling out the zombies who never question authority”.
        That sentence says it all for me. I’m so sick of trying to get people to wake up and think for themselves and use critical thinking that I’ve given up trying to talk to the idiots that have absolutely no clue. Too many people live in their own little bubble. They’ll fight you tooth and nail if they think you may pop their bubble.
        I’ve been saying this for years, “One man’s truth may be nothing more than another man’s illusion”.

    • They’re stopping me from becoming a Royal Virus to kill off most of humanity!

    I’m Canadian and I have to say this is not only creepy and weird, it’s Orwellian.

    Sure, the intentions are good on the surface, given that Canada has universal health Care, it is in the Canadian government’s best interest to find ways to lower health care cost, and if this helps to motivate Canadians to live a healthier lifestyle then yeah, this is good.

    However, on the flip side, this is completely Orwellian, given that health insurance companies may some day decide to cut off someones benefits if they don’t take their flu shots every year, or if they don’t exercise regularly, or don’t eat a healthy diet etc…

    The only good thing about this App it’s that it is voluntary, and given that only 300 000 Canadians downloaded it since 2015 (probably don’t use it either) gives me hope.

    Canadians may have a pacifist socialist easy going reputation, but we ain’t no fools.

    • I’m Orwellian and I have to say this is not only creepy and weird, it’s Canadian.

      • PeaceFroggs says:

        Nobody is perfect, I’m sure this little experiment will go away by the wayside.

      • HomeRemedySupply says:

        Nice humor.

        • PeaceFroggs says:

          Unlike some of you, I believe in my fellow man.

          • HomeRemedySupply says:

            PeaceFroggs, I got to admit…I like you. I really do. Sure, we don’t always agree, but I do read your stuff often. Sometimes you make some profound points.
            One thing for sure, you can sure stir up things on occasion.

            • PeaceFroggs says:

              Thanks for the kind words HomeRemedySupply.

              If we’d agreed with each other all the time, this world would sure be a boring place to be wouldn’t it? Guess that’s the irony of it all, so we might as well enjoy the trip.

              • HomeRemedySupply says:

                I used to catch and play with these Texas Horned Frogs when I was a kid. They would “fall asleep” when you rub their belly. Sometimes when pissed, blood would come out their eyes. They loved those big black ants. I would make small burrow-type “shade spaces” and then catch them in the shade during the heat of the day. http://www.texasgenweb.org/coryell/ImAHornedFrogFromTexas1910.jpeg

                http://www.mysanantonio.com/news/local/article/Taco-Cabana-adopts-famous-Tango-Frogs-5579325.php
                Iconic giant “6 Tango Frogs over Texas” sculptures (at one time mechanical). Actually, the artist took this Kitsch art design from south Texas. On the southern Texas Rio Grande River Texas-Mexico border during the late 50’s, early 60’s, the Mexican shops would sell stuffed bullfrogs to look like a mariachi band. I remember seeing tons of these as a kid when going across the border.

          • FYI, I’m not just Orwellian, though I play one on TV, I’m also Canadian, so I can speak with all the authority of an anarchist who doesn’t believe in authority.

            Stephen Colbert, back on his other show when he was good, once called Windsor, Ontario the armpit of Canada. Obviously he’s never been to Sarnia or Surrey or… But, it sure was 20 or 30 years ago. At least that’s what I thought then when I was trying to escape it.

            Now it’s as generic and bland as all the other soulless Southwestern Ontario cities.

            I would have liked to have seen what Windsor/Detroit was like in the rum-running days (before Motown). Now that’s an unreported story. Boardwalk Empire but less mafia and far more prolific than reported. Try driving a semi-disposable semi-broken down jalopy loaded to the brim with heavy rum across a rough frozen river/lake without falling through the ice! Very high stakes. The roadhouses have a long interesting history that I must stop from starting because I’ll go on forever.

            The new Detroit Riot of 1967 film will likely forget the 1943 Detroit race riots – also widely forgotten. The war effort eclipsed all other struggles at home, including exploitation, etc.

    • ray.m says:

      How did Justin Trudeau get elected if there’s no fools in Canada? He is trying to destroy Canada with mass invasion of Islam. Just for some extra liberal votes. And how about paying that terrorist that murdered one US servicemen and blinded another $10,500,000. Anybody that has the balls to defend that terrorist and think that he deserves our tax dollars is so beyond belief it’s sickening. But just look at who Justin Trudeau’s friends are, will start with George Soros, and then go to Obama next Hillary Clinton then Merkel I’m just named all the Communist scumbags that is hell-bent on destroying North America and Europe so we can join a New World order to be exterminated as they see fit. I think there’s far too many fools not only in Canada but the US and Europe. Most of the idiots don’t even realize how the communist slithered into most the political parties. And they don’t even care.

      • mkey says:

        I hear your angst brother, but if I may offer some unsolicited advice, you should really try to accept what you can not change. Not in the usual “one man can’t chance anything, I give up” way but in the quasi biblical “turn the other cheek” way. Sometimes people are a terrible disappointment, but I personally try to not get overly mad over it (succeed almost 15% of the time, up from 0%) and find some solace in the fact some people will never ever change. It’s disheartening, but all you can do is lead the horse to water.

        This state of affairs has been going on for a while now and there is a reason for it. People play their part in it, that’s not a coincidence. Many areas of human activity exploit faults in the human perception. Stuff like that allows for benign achievements, like digital audio and video compression, where better compression is obtained thanks to being able to dump data your average human fellow can’t even hear or see. This other thing, less benign, exploits laziness, procrastination and lack of decisiveness and trades freedom for a mostly full tummy and promise for shiny things.

        • Don’t accept.

          Tolerate (for now).

          Then wait for my signal (you’ll know it when you see it)…

        • HomeRemedySupply says:

          mkey,
          …try to accept what you can not change….
          I track big time.

          At times for me, it can be hard to do. It takes some personal confronting of the situation. When I finally do, then my space cleans up.

      • wingsuitfreak says:

        You forgot the pope.

  3. How about penalties for bad governance?

    I like the idea of Voluntarism and believe it’s worth striving for, but realize it’s a little impractical because the herd will always form tribes and then you get mob rule.

    Recently I heard someone asking for V For Vendetta, Part 2 explaining what happens after there’s no government. What happens to the utilities, civil order, etc.? Let’s talk about the replacement solutions.

    The ridiculously oversimplified vote for a fallible personality is beyond stupid. We all know taxation is theft – especially without representation (insert Princeton Study link here). Why not vote on policies on your tax form? Merge the tax and vote forms. I vote more spending on education and health, I vote less on bombs and prisons, etc. Maybe even on a scale (hate – dislike – meh – like – love).

    The Internet Party is a nice idea and I hope they merge with the Pirate Party. I want a Transparency Party! But if voting was effective it’d be illegal.

    • PeaceFroggs says:

      Why do people insist on reinventing the wheel? Republican forms of government and/or parliamentary forms of government seem to work pretty good when it comes to actual governing, and our Laws are codified into law based on these countries constitutions and human rights.

      I mean think about it, compare our quality of life to that of our great grandparents, when they didn’t have electricity and or plumbing and clean water, no health care, women would have miscarriages all the time, when it was common for children under 2 or 3 years old to die from diseases like chicken pox, measles, polio etc…

      It’s the creation of empires and their excessive hunger for military excursions (military industrial complex), foreign policy that’s the problem, however one advantage that we have today that societies in the past didn’t have, is the Internet.

      James Corbett, and countless others are exposing the absurd each and every day now. Furthermore, since only handful of corporations own and control the media, thanks to the Internet, this absolute control is now exposed and has become their Achilles heel.

      Just as the Gutenberg Press lead to the Renaissance and the age of Enlightenment, the Internet is helping people exchange ideas much the same way books did back then, but at a much faster pace.

      No need to reinvent the wheel, we just need to figure out ways to incorporate the Internet with all levels of government in order to have more transparency and accountability.

      This speech coupled with the Internet seems more pertinent today than ever before.

      The military industrial complex had to kill JFK before they could even think about ramping up the war in Vietnam, and even with JFK out of the way, they still had to fool the populace with the Gulf of Tonkin incident. That’s how much power the populace had back then, think about how much power we have today thanks to the Internet.

      Don’t know why some of you are so doom and gloom all the time, liberty is making inroads like never before.

      • Are you suggesting I’m suggesting we reinvent the wheel?

        A replacement solution can be a modification.
        ie. implementing transparency and/or vote-your-tax

        Our quality of life? At who’s expense PeaceFroggs?

        Western society has externalized the bad stuff and enforced borders.

        Sneakers and iPhones are made under terrible circumstances that we no longer tolerate. Maybe we aren’t the 1% but we are the 10% and the rest of the world suffer so that we may suffer under the 1% and their rigged rules and systems that trap us all.

        They’re trying to subvert and censor the internet.
        First they soft censor YouTube.
        Now they’re allowing all kinds of crappy shit on YouTube (ie Elsagate, etc).
        Then they’re going to start hard censoring YouTube.
        Then YouTube will be another streaming service like Netflix.
        They’ve already forgotten the Manchester Bomb Hoax but are still trying to censor us.

        Enjoy the good times while they last, if they last.

        Trust but verify. Prepare for the worst and hope for the best.

        Half full or half empty, it’s just half.

        Life is not good. Life is not a bitch. Life is bittersweet.

        If trouble is what you’re looking for,
        then trouble is all you’ll find,
        the difference between a rut and a groove,
        is all in your state of mind.

          • I’m manic depressive legit.

            Not like all you fakers on anti-depressant zombie makers.

            When I’m manic you know it cause I even annoy myself.

            When I’m depressed I’m stealthy like a ninja but actually just trying to sleep through the inescapable tortures of intellect and self and existential angst and the futility of it all.

    The “Fitbit” app that makes you a “bitFit.”

    All kidding aside, nope. This is where the rubber meets the road, where the real life “soma” is integrated into society.

    Don’t fall for it. Let these lifestyle nannies sing Kumbaya in their echo chamber.

    • generalbottlewasher says:

      Jose’r. Soma is the most abused nsaid by the professional medical establishment. Two 350mg Soma and a beer and it replicates the affects, for a while,of the now banded pain reliever by Rohr’ Qaluud ‘(insert AMA warning 1989 for hospitals and human resource medical professionals.) Dangerous side effects may include “it may make the user feel good.”
      Is that the ‘Soma’ you are referencing ?

  6. Richard Ran says:

    Well I really meant to read the whole article before contributing my 2 eurocts (while they still have some value), but then I saw the first creepy clip and had what one calls a typical NeNoCo-Erlebnis (new normal conditioning). This Dutchie was particularly triggered by the biking helmet carrot points, because as we say here in Amsterdam, “helmets are for sissies” (and North American expats over here). Besides offering a false sense of security (like seat belts) they just look plain silly.
    So even before getting to the Orwellian implications of this nenoco lure, you can already safely bet that the bureaucrats’ definition of “healthy behaviour” will ensure the same disastrous real-life outcomes as the Minimum Wage experiment in Seattle did, when the authorities themselves did an investigation.

    Perhaps a misspelling here? Carrot = Care-rot

    Cheers from Amsterdam,

    One wonders what label they’d use in the upcoming “Climate App” for points earned..

    Carbon Carrots?

    • nosoapradio says:

      well…we already have “ice carrots” crusading for climate…

      “carbon carrots” seems approriate…actually sounds kinda good… sounds even better than ice carrots in fact…

      can’t say ‘carbon crédits’ for a climate app…it’s has-been… copyright conflicts…

      always had a weakness for …alliteration…

      carbon carrots…nice…

      hey! how ’bout… CARBON CANDY CRUSH CARROTS????

      Now THAT sounds REALLY good for a climate app!!

      • Richard Ran says:

        Gonna design an app to reward a politician’s good behaviour. The app will hand out RPPs for every instance of “good governance”.

        Suggestions for the rewards system:

        10 RPPs… for turning down a crony lobbyist.
        100 RPPs… for every 100 dollars actually cut without any compensatory govt spending.
        1000 RPPs… for any no-vote to a law that increases govt meddling.
        10000 RPPs… for getting rid of laws that increased govt meddling.
        100000 RPPs… for abolishing a govt department (with an extra 10000 bonus for axing the Dept. of Education).
        1000000 RPPs… for bringing US troops home (and 100000 RPP bonus for every foreign US base dismantled).
        Gazillion RPPs… for ending the FED and the IRS (and not replacing them with anything).

        Cheers from Woodenshoesland,
        Richard

        P.s.: @nosoap, now all we need is a decent “algor(e)ithm” (get it, get it?)

    Greetings James…

    From a practical & PR viewpoint it would serve you best to eliminate the first 30 seconds of your intro to this matter, begining your comments at minute 2:47. Some who may know nothing of your previous work & research will find you idiotically overpresumptious assuming everybody else in this planet is either brainwashed or simply stupid. New audience to your podcasts may find such style repulsively egoistic.

    Keep up your brilliant work!

    • Bravo. I like constructive criticism. I can’t speak for James, but I would love to see more of that here so he can continue to up his game.

  9. michael_harrison says:

    No, you are not the only one who finds this creepy.There are millions of sleepwalking, gullible idiots in this country of ours (Canada) who won’t see anything creepy or weird in this. They will see it as a fun way to get something for nothing with the vague feeling of being healthy. Every store you walk into in the country has people standing around trying to sign you up for a free points card of some kind. Free free free. If you try to explain what is going on to most people, they will think that you are the weird one..
    I feel your pain James. I really wonder if there is any hope though.

    • Gather round children as I regale you with a creepy horror story beyond the pale. If you’ve seen the Hitchcock movie “Psycho” then you know what mother looks like. Not the cross-dressing mother, the other zombie mother. Now imagine if you will, the image of my mother watching, gasp, CBC every night – and even believing she’s informed… Oh, the horror, the horror. It’s true, every word. Even though she understands that 9/11 is full of holes and the system is terribly flawed and the politicians are all fools, she can’t she just won’t believe they are malicious, evil, hell bent murderous, exploitative despots and that there is any other way.

      My mother is a Canadian Broadcasting Corporation zombie.

    It sure shows how pompous they are, naming the conditioning app “Carrot” in the first place. As if we are stupid donkeys just blindly following their carrots as we go through life. They seem to forget how Mussolini’s miserable life ended.

    Oh well, and James, that will be 1,000 carrot point reduction for you for being the messenger.

    Of course if they get their way, this type of app will tie directly to your bank/points account, which will be your only source of income credit (B Gates has the app for that), and when you choose to dissent or not brush your teeth well you know what happens then..

  13. HomeRemedySupply says:

    Eventually someone will come out with APPs like “Government Sucks” …or a “Duped Points” APP which reveals how people get played by corporations and the government, everything from 9/11 to vaccines to March of Dimes and pink ribbon cancer to Carrot.

    The “Duped Points” APP could get advertising dollars from natural health products or other alternative lifestyle entities, including alternative media.

    “The Encyclopedia of Scams” is a wonderful list of terms.

    Teresa here,

    We all have to decide with every new tech-development whether it furthers our life’s goals. Personally, I want to be conscious in my actions, taking responsibility for them so I actually deserve this life. Nothing is for free, and don’t believe anyone who tells you that a government cares for you. They always have a goal in mind, and that is control of the masses. If you act independently, you are free of that control.

    Freedom isn’t always pretty, like a beautiful butterfly spreading its wings and taking off into the blue sky. You have to anticipate and accept the consequences of your freedom. Like this: what if you actually took responsibility for your own health? Quit getting those check-ups and tests, asking opinions of doctors whose main occupation is pushing drugs. Don’t call 911. Accept disease and death as a learning experience. Scary stuff when you actually get cancer, but many are going with natural healing in the face of chemotherapy.

    Or what about staying home and raising your own kids to be happy individuals, home schooled and garden fed? Or what about not using a dumbphone? Not getting the latest app? Not listening to CNN? How about making your own spiritual growth your own prime directive for this life? Yes, the world is going down the tubes, but so what? How are you doing? Having a good day?

    Thanks James for this, but it doesn’t surprise me that our “home and native land” is behind this. In my world most everybody looks like they are already being gamed, and I am the weirdo, but that’s okay. I am in good company, like you. Be well, and enjoy your life. Those who chase that carrot on the end of the stick never get it. That’s good, because they stay out of the way of others who are busy doing far more interesting things than earning points.

    Help Me Beat the Heat! – Subscriber Exclusive #068 VIDEO
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=R35jgohAmcE
    James Corbett says: “I’m just a boy from the foothills of the Rockies. I’m not built for this hot and sticky Japanese summer weather. So what’s your secret for beating the heat? Please, let me know!”

    With over 60 years, most of which have been in Texas (in all its regions), there is no real solid solution that I know of, especially when it comes to the humidity/heat combination.
    Acclimation – If a person is outside in the heat everyday, they become better accustomed to it. I am amazed at roofers in Texas during the summer heat, at it all day. I am sure it probably works that way with cold.
    I tried a Kansas winter one time and only lasted about three weeks. After a car key broke on the frozen door lock, I decided to head back to Texas.
    Acclimation – I guess that word applies in so many realms, from the weather to APPs to taxes and laws.

    Coincidently, earlier today, my jeans were soaked almost to the knees with sweat (and of course my shirt) from working out in the yard and garden. The humidity in the Dallas area has been very high this summer with more rain than typical.

    I approach these marathon sweat sessions like going to a health sauna in order to sweat out toxins. Prior to the outside sweating garden workout, I load up on supplements & minerals and drink a pitcher of blender-ed greens & herbs. Today it was lemon, cilantro, parsley, gotu kola, blueberries, mixed greens, turmeric, etc. Today I took about 8-10 grams of NAC (N-acetyl cysteine) to help get rid of some recent chemical exposure. NAC once saved my life.
    The greens, especially leafy greens, hold moisture well. Look at a plant cell image under a microscope — it holds moisture. This keeps a person hydrated, but the broken cell walls from the blender also help exchange body toxins. Parsley is great for the kidneys.
    Cilantro is great for grabbing heavy metals. – STD & cilantro herehttps://www.corbettreport.com/interview-1265-new-world-next-week-with-james-evan-pilato/#comment-37297

      A few things to take when it is hot

      Salt and Potassium balance in the body. These minerals sweat out easily. Taking these supplements in the summer can often give a person an energy boost. If a person gets a headache during hot weather, often this is a main indication of salt/potassium depletion.
      In the old days, Texas high schools had salt tablets in the sports/gym area.

      Molasses (maybe they call it treacle in Canada) has a lot of minerals. It does help during hot humid weather and long has been used in the south for generations. Avoid a sulphured molasses.

      I had many Texas roadside selling summers, especially when I sold $5 sunglasses. I had an 18 foot trailer with sides which opened up to provide shade. Both sides of the trailer were a wall of sunglasses, almost every style. But it got hot out there on those 13-15 hour 100 degree days. I would drink more than a gallon of water and not have to pee. I took the salt/potassium supplements often, but also took B-Vitamins, especially B-1. The B’s are water soluble, so they sweat out easily. A sweating related depletion of B-1 can quickly affect a person’s mood.

      “To Kill A Mockingbird” type heat…
      Growing up in humid, hot East Texas prior to air conditioning, there were a few things we would do. Take it easy indoors during the heat of the day. The fans would run with the long, tall windows open. My brother and I would put our sheets in the freezer. (It only lasts a short while) The last thing which would help is the ole swamp cooler, a so called water based air conditioning type unit which made things more humid. The doors would be open at night with the screen door latched shut. We were “poor”, a family of 6, living literally close to the tracks in the days before integration. All the Black students would cut across our yard to and from their segregated school.
      ~~ One hot summer night, while my brother and I were sleeping, a guy crawled in through one of our open bedroom windows. My Dad was out of town. My brother and I awoke as a black man raced past us out the front screen door while my Mother was screaming “Get out of here!” He took $20 off her dresser. A week or so later he was caught after he broke into a car down the street. He went to jail, but broke out. They had the hounds after him. Shot him in the leg as he was going across a marshy lake area.

      • HopefulOne says:

        Yes, James, it is tough in the heat and humidity.

        HRS, you’re right on with your suggestions.

        One thing that I do on my travels about during the worst of the heat, it to always take a glass or mug of ice and cold water where ever I go, and I sometimes pack a softside portable cooler/lunch bag with frozen water, as well as something to pick me up, like one of those blender drinks that HRS referred to- I make them and freeze it- to drink later in my work day.

        …When I get home from being out in the summer heat, once in a while I just have to stand in front of the open freezer door 🙂

      • wingsuitfreak says:

        Reminded me of a time when I was about 15 or so. I was sleeping, and my dog (sleeping in my bed) very quietly woke me up and had that look of help me on her face. Someone was cutting the screen on my window. I grabbed my shotgun (right by my bed and loaded) and broke it open and closed it loudly. The cutting stopped and in a few minutes my dog was relaxed again. I was pretty glad. I would have shot him, but I knew the mess was going to be pretty bad. We didn’t cotton to no burglars back in them days. 🙂
        Those swamp coolers are great in N. Texas, but it’s way too humid for them in N. Florida where I live now. Odd how they call them swamp coolers as that is the last place you want to use one! I remember cropping tobacco as a kid (started at twelve) on foot. If I could make it through a day of that now, I’d probably quit anyway. Of course, 57 is a bit old for that anyway.

      Solution for cooling off…
      Old West Fan to cool off – MUST SEE

      I assume it is a stirling engine. In the scene it looks like a low flame alcohol lamp to give the fan some punch. Many stirling engines don’t need a “fuel” like alcohol, kerosene or anything. Evidently, stirling engines were popular in the day, especially with toys and such.

      Instead of all these electronics in the marketplace today, I would love to see more mechanical and non-plastic innovations like the fan.

    Andreas Souvaliotis says “Why not use points as incentives?”…hmmmmmmmm

    So carrot points are kinda like money! They’re probably worth more than rupees on the global market! Everything is!

    “…but in Bihar private clinics receive 1,500 rupees for every sterilisation, with a bonus of 500 rupees a patient if they carry out more than 30 operations on a particular day. NGO workers who convince people to have the operations receive 150 rupees a person, while doctors get 75 rupees for each patient…”

    Carrot points would be even more effective than rupees!

    Or maybe they could design an app motivating the Indians to just sterilize themselves at home and get lots of carrot rewards! Now that’s what I call incentives!

    Wouldn’t that be great!! Equal opportunity! 😎

    first comment goes towards the “Carrot” app, if you need that to do what they are showing, it’s the same as a “new year” resolution, it will last about 3 weeks and then you’ll be back to old habits. So don’t even waste your time. If healthy living was really you, you won’t need any “reminder”

    Next, James you are not the only one, I agree with you 110%, but I fear most people are too “stupid” (not the correct term for them, but one i use for lack of a better one”). In the last 15 years of rep sports and the social interaction from it, I still can not believe how “stupid” seemingly intelligent are. I still have not wrap my head around how this could be. I did do a experiment with family members too see if they really are that lackadaisical to all of this, or just how far does it need to go to them personally before they revolt. It didn’t take much to get a revolt.

    More comments to come as this, I guess is my major point of interest in the world today. Getting people to see how there being manipulated. A freaking “tall order” let me say!!

  28. mkey says:

    I beat the heat with my mind. Basically, if you concentrate on something other than how hot it is (gets up to 37°C with 80+% humidity over here) it definitively helps lessen the perception of extreme temperatures.

    Also, taking a nice dive in a cool(er) sea almost always hits the spot. Today it’s very windy so I decided to skip it, but I plan to resume my schedule for tomorrow. Of course, it helps that I live a few hundred meters from the sea, this is a very specific solution to the issue.

    Sometimes, when it gets really, really hot, I watch the Al Gore’s movie and his little stunt with the big crane. Putting things in perspective and realizing how hot is going to be, any day now, can be really helpful.

Some young guy in a sporty car behind her lays on the horn. This 68 year old lady unbuckles her seatbelt, jumps out of the car, heads back to the driver and scolds him. My wife says he just sunk down in his seat. The driver behind him gave my wife a thumbs up.

The Vet responded, “Yes, that sometimes happens with vaccines.” But the Vet said it in an airy-fairy way, like there is nothing to be concerned about regarding vaccines.

      I always laugh when people say “we won” when all they did was sit on their ass and watch somebody else play. I’ve never been a spectator and the sports I played were generally not team sports. Long distance running, skydiving (can be one, but I don’t play well with others), and boxing (I sucked at that one, so it didn’t last). I always ask them how they helped them to win. It’s too easy to poke fun at statists.

        Yes it is very strange of our fellow humans when they say “We won” after a sports game, because another part of “We” (the opponent) also lost.

        It’s so good that I’m actually going to share it with my sheeple family, especially my brother who’s sooo into sports that he became a physio/chiropractor (the good Canadian kind), and even gambles a bit on sports.

        Also, I can honestly say that “we” didn’t go to the moon. Maybe “they” did and maybe not. “We” don’t know because we weren’t there to see if they faked it or not.

  31. == Appetizers or Applications ==

    These apps are training you to always report in, track you, give them data and subsequently control POINTS, as well as addicting you to their new subjective reward system.

    First the tranquilizer then the boot to face.

    == Beat the heat (or cold) ==

    1) An annoying but potentially effective habit to get into – close doors to rooms you don’t use and keep the heat / cooling localized – not just to be cost and energy effective – but in my case – the little units aren’t powerful enough to go far. Maybe a space heater or air conditioner in two rooms is better than a whole house/apartment.

    2) Old fashioned A/C = “swamp cooler”. A decade ago in East Oakland 3 of us shared a large ghetto warehouse that used to be a (toxic) Dutch Boy paint factory turned artists refuge. My studio mate filled a large plastic bin with water and placed a large 2×2 foot square fan beside it and with bungees attached a large mass of coconut fibers to the fan dipping into the water. As the fan blew the water wicked up the fibers and cooled the air down to dramatic and surprising effect. I don’t recall if there were moisture mess as it wasn’t an issue in the workshop.

    3) For outside. This was also dramatically effective while camping in Texas in summer mounting misting hoses fixed high on a cheap shade structure frame. The frame or shade is not as necessary as the misting hose raised high. The super fine mist falls as does the cool air. Cold actually. The finer the mist the better to get less wet. If it’s that hot you’re already sweating but you don’t need to be soaked. The mister was finer that lawn watering hoses with periodic holes. I think they may have used vegetable misting hoses for supermarkets.

    4) I fill my empty 2 litre soda bottles almost half up (or 2/3 angled) with water for the freezer. When needed I fill the other half up with water and flavour. The solid ice block lasts longer. On desperate occasions it will sit in my lap. When it melts I swap out for another. This is not as good if you don’t like drinking from a 2 litre bottle.

    5) Dream of skiing down the slopes in Dubai and pounding those moguls! (In every sense.)

    6) There is no sixth thing. You are thinking of the Sixth Sense.

    7) Watch Monty Python. It’s harder to cry when you’re laughing.

  34. jac3homebiz says:

    Here’s some advice for coping with the summer heat. Toward the beginning of summer, try to get your body acclimated to the heat so it can get used to regulating internal temperature in hotter external conditions. Spending time at the beach or by a pool offers quick relief during this process. Sweat it out for awhile and then jump in. You should see an increase in your comfort level when exposed to heat afterwards. I do tai Chi and get used to doing the warmup and routines in ambient temperature with the doors open in summer time. It seems to increase my tolerance to going outside without immediately bursting into sweat. Sweat it out early on your own terms so you can be more comfortable when exposed during daily commutes, etc. later 😉

    I saw this coming ever since we got grocery store cards.

    How long until government programs prevent people on food stamps from buying say red meat. It will cycle into a dance with the health care. People will be prevented from purchasing certain foods, the justification will be the feedback into what has been “deemed healthy” by “experts”.

    If you become overweight, healthcare will have a foothold to push you into a certain diet. The consequence will be you will be dropped. They already do this with smokers at least to the extent that if you smoke you are screwed if you come up with anything even remotely relatable by the act of smoking.

    My belated brother once said “People are not like Bees”. As much as we can work together as a species, this idea of control is going completely past so many people.

    Now, the counter argument of course will be “What, you don’t want people to be healthy”?

    It’s like the elections, hacked elections. What is to stop anyone from doing this with health data?

    Furthermore, what to do with all of these people that are going to be replaced by machines? That’s my biggest thought for this time. Not everyone has the ability to migrate into jobs that are technical. My point is, this will fit conveniently in with a new class of human.

    What was that film where the people were on the treadmill and they got points? Oh yeah Black Mirror – “Fifteen Million Merits”. That was a scary one and is in line with this concept.

    You know in that vein, in Cuba, if you have animals, the government tracks exactly how many. What happens in reality is say your Sow has 7 piglets, the government examiner comes and says you have 4, you keep two and he keeps one and the rest are the property of Cuba.

    So I can see that if things go this route, we will be in a situation where the black market will become a way of life for most. In Cuba, that is how things go. You have to use the black market because there is no way to survive with what is allocated. They (Cubans) actually say that 1984 is like their (government) reference guide. You know you can get Rum and Cigarettes everywhere. Those are abundant and cheap. Food is scarce.

    I know this is off topic a little but to stimulate a little deeper probe for outcome is the reason I am making these points. The end point being, is everyone, at any given moment, can be deemed a criminal for surviving in a system that forces them to do so.

      Beat the Heat
      Here are a couple more things which I do to beat the heat (besides what I stated way above on this thread)…

      ~ I shade the outside Air Conditioning Unit. A unit can only cool relative to its temperature.

      ~ In very humid weather, I run a portable dehumidifier inside the house.

      ~ I drink Crazy Water. That’s right, I spent my high school years in Mineral Wells, TX known for its crazy water. I can buy bottles of it in the Dallas area.

          Are goats difficult to raise? They seem like good lawn mowers. About a mile from me, a fellow has about 8-10 goats. They like to get up on things around the porch of the old vacant house. Two Great Pyrenees and a donkey join them.

            Goats are really easy, so long as you don’t get them into the milking stage or you’ll have to milk them every day. But they are easy to care for and eat ANYTHING. I am not joking. There are actually companies that rent out their goats just for brush clearing. “Environmentally friendly brush clearing” 😀

            • My grandparents had female goats in Muskoka, Ontario, Canada and they did NOT eat anything. They were picky as hell. They liked their dried corn and if you didn’t secure the lid properly there was a chance they’d eat so much they’d explode. Maybe my grandpa was teasing me, maybe not. They did eat all of certain types of vegetation in their pen but left much behind, including more poop than you might imagine. Fortunately their vegetarian poop didn’t smell too baaaad.

                But those are Canadian goats. Everybody knows that Canadian goats are just plain weird. It’s true they explode, but only if they eat your dynamite. 🙂

              • Oh the dynamite things I could do with dynamite…

                They explode because they eat too much dried corn. Then they drink a lot of water. Then the corn expands. Then the heat of the dynamite makes all the corn pop simultaneously spontaneously combusting. It’s better indoors.

                Yes, Canadian goats strut around in V formation like Canadian geese. Weird? Maybe. Don’t yours?

                Decades ago I was to young to wonder what it would be like to have sex with kids. Get your goatee on now with robot sex dolls of all shapes and sizes. Except apparently some Newfie recently imported a life sized human child doll and the thought police courts have a problem with him not having not sex with a not real child. Not kidding. But goat kids? Goat realdolls may be another story, maybe not – but no matter how good the robots get, they’ll never get the big sultry come hither goat eyes correct with their sexy creepy alien irises.

                Ooo, how about a hermaphroditic Baphomet sex doll? Or a tranny-trans-human-goat half-breed sex-slave from the secret cross species labs of Antarctica? If you’re in the BIS which is above the World Bank and IMF and all nations and all their laws, you could get away with it. Untouchable yet grope-able.

                I remember my dad unsuccessfully using dynamite to help with a well-drilling job when I was about ten or twelve. That it didn’t work didn’t matter to me. It was love at first bang. I also remember how we used to take homemade TNT sticks (not full-sized) and get drunk and stoned and blow things up with them in the parking lot. Strange how, even though we were about a quarter mile away from the Florida State Trooper Headquarters and the Sheriffs Airport office that they never rode by. Normally they did, but for some reason they avoid areas where there are very large explosions going on. Can’t figure out why.

                That dynamite sounds like fun! I always enjoyed firecrackers.

                One of my cousins used two sticks of it to blow up a stump behind his house. Two sticks tamped under a stump is pretty powerful. He watched the stump fly over his house. Wish I could have been there to see that one! There is a guide to making homemade c4 that used to be out there by some guy with the pseudonym of Ragnar. Not that I recommend making it. Nope. Not me. The good news is that if you don’t survive it, it’s likely you’ll still get whatever you were trying to get. It’s a small consolation, but at least it’s something! 🙂

              • Might as well. Life is just a sexually transmitted disease that no one survives.

          • wingsuitfreak says:

            I never milked them, or butchered them, so they were real easy. They are extremely stupid (entertainingly so) though. The only maintenance I ever had to do was carry around bolt cutters. They always want whatever is on the other side of the fence and they tended to get their horns stuck in the deer fencing (this was the nubian goats aka pygmy goats. The Saureen didn’t have that problem.) and I’d have to cut the fence to get them unstuck. They really will try to eat anything and have a very bad memory; so if it didn’t meet their taste standards five minutes ago, why I’m sure it’ll taste different this time! But yes, they are fun to have around. I don’t recommend them as lawnmowers though as they will also eat your bushes, and try to eat your screening, and whatever else there is that you don’t think they could possibly be stupid enough to try and eat. But they are also playful and loving animals. Give them something that resembles a hill (a truck hood will do) and you can play king of the hill with the palm of your hand all day long with them.

              • wingsuitfreak says:

                Don’t use meat for that (just kidding). yes, their droppings are very good, but ours just roamed around in the fields composting the normal way. But really any herbivore makes great compost material, though cow manure and worm droppings are the absolute best. One does need to be very careful with worm droppings though. It’s also helpful to remember that while you can kill plants with too much manure, they will never die with plant based compost. I personally prefer the cow manure for growing mushrooms instead. 🙂
                I forgot to mention this part earlier. If you want goats you should get just females. Males are a different story and I’ve never had them. If you do get them, and you want to milk the goats, you should keep them separate as I have heard from many reliable sources that the female’s milk quality will suffer. I’m not sure if this is just a myth to keep the herd down to a manageable size, but I do know they are mean as all get out. There used to be one down in Panama when I was stationed down there. It had been in the jungle for years and nothing had been able to kill it. And there were plenty of jaguars and the like down there. I’m guessing it was too mean for them to bother with.

                Poop
                In my Ag classes at TX A&M (circa 2007-08), I learned a lot of cool stuff from my ‘Cowboy’ classmates and Professors.

                Mountains of chicken poop from the big hen houses can be an issue. EX – Nitrate runoff.
                Evidently, chicken poop is often sold as a cattle feed additive because it has a high nitrogen content. (Nitrogen as in plants…and as in protein / amino acid molecules.)

                This alarmed me, because I like my burgers.
                I already knew that most commercial chicken feed contains added arsenic. The arsenic makes chickens grow faster and plumper.
                I had an M.D. once show me a heavy metals test of a patient of hers. (She covered the patient’s name.) The arsenic level was way up there to the extreme. The Medical Doctor told me that many of her patients tested out very high on arsenic and that those patients often ate a lot of chicken.

                Stuff like this really makes me focus on eating organic and grass fed and free range. Besides, organic always contains more nutrients than conventional.

              • mkey says:

                I’m interested to hear, why does worm poop need extra care? I have just recently started to learn about these 100% natural processes and I’d like to figure out the angles and get the full picture.

                “Besides, organic always contains more nutrients than conventional.”

                I find that conventional and organic are one and the same, we could swap “organic” with “natural” and none would be the wiser. What we’re enduring now (regarding food production but relates to everything else as well) is the lasting effect of crony capitalism, which is willing to poison billions of people to make an extra buck. As long as someone else foots the bill, this is all aces in their book.

              • HomeRemedySupply says:

                mkey,

                Organic foods tend to have a higher nutrient value because synthetic chemical fertilizers are not used.
                Typically, synthetic fertilizers are made from petroleum products and perhaps the phosphate industry.
                Primarily, chemical fertilizers contain three things: Nitrogen, Phosphorous, and Potassium (N-P-K).

                This gives the illusion of bright green fast growing plants. In actuality, it is like muscle-building steroids to a plant. They bulk out quickly while their huevos / immune system shrink.
                Synthetic fertilizers force the plant to ignore other natural minerals and natural methods of growing (which includes the microbe activity of the soil).

                Worm compost is extremely powerful. You can just sprinkle a little and it will go a long way. If you use too much it will burn the plants. Also, there is no legal definition for the word “natural”, so it could mean anything. When you buy organic, it is not the end-all for nutrition as mono-cultural farming is not necessarily sustainable. However, it does not kill the soil like the petrochemical substances do. Soil bacteria is very important to plant health. Real farming takes a lot of skill in knowing how to set it up, but it’s worth the effort. Chemical farming depletes the food of all it’s nutrients and replaces it with toxic chemicals. That can’t be good. Oh well, enough of that before I start ranting about it! 🙂 I wish I could remember the name of a book I read once which turned everything I thought I knew about farming on it’s head. Permaculture is my love now. ‘Nuff said!

              • mkey says:

                I fully (well, partially) understand the implied difference between organic produce and the rest.

                What I have an issue with in this case is that “organic” should be taken as “normal” or “natural” as opposed to “abnormal” or “unnatural,” something that the food production industry has become. In my area it isn’t as bad as elsewhere, but we do have many issues related to food production.

                In other words, why should new terminology for old practices be employed? Sounds like “control the past to control the present” type of deal to me.

                Another issue I have with “organic” is that it has, at least locally here, been coopted and subverted. It’s being understood as a type of product while it should be demanded for it to become the norm, again. Also, many organic producers in this area are in fact importers, so it isn’t the local organic (supposedly) potatos you can acquire, but Spanish or whatever. One of tennets of food production is – grow it locally, but that’s just another paradigm that needs to shift.

                Yet another issue is that many small and large producers resell a substantial part of “their” produce so there really aren’t many reliable places to turn for “organic” food. Further, food producers here are very traditional.

              • HomeRemedySupply says:

                mkey,
                5 STARS on the points you made!
                (For example: new terminology for old practices )

              • wingsuitfreak says:

                The reason why the term organic is used is because the chemical manufacturers chose the battlefield. That is why I call it chemical farming, rather than conventional farming. Organic is truly conventional, as it’s history is as long as plant life itself. Chemical farming is only about a hundred years old, and has already damaged the environment to a degree that would be horrifying to people if they were capable of thought anymore.
                It would be better if we could all buy organic food locally, but the sad truth is that most local farmers poison their foods. I choose to reward an organic farmer ten thousand miles away (damn the fuel costs!) than help my neighbor try to kill me.
                Having said all that, USDA Organic is mostly crap. They were formed, like all government bodies, to embrace the large agri-poison industries. QAI is the one to really look for, though I hope to form a different standard in the next year or so (may not work out, but it’s all about everyone trying). I won’t buy anything that claims it’s natural. The only definition that can really define natural is the Greek origin which means something like the form of things. Hardly reassuring when a company touts it’s product as having a form.

              • mkey says:

                Well, I agree for the most part, but if I can’t trust local producers (because I know how many of them operate which in itself is bit of a fallacy of assocciation) I sure as hell can’t trust a remote producer.

                People here (small scale producers) rely on chemicals mostly because they don’t know any better.

                Again, situation here isn’t nearly as critical as it could be since there aren’t mega giant companies around, main problem here is the disjointed market due to which it’s a lot more affordable to import instead of produce, even with the quite low local standard.

              • wingsuitfreak says:

                So you’ll eat their food that they poisoned but only because they’re incompetent? If I poured battery acid on your toast because I was a dumbass, and told you it was a good thing, would I be the dumbass or you if you ate it? I’m not dying just to be polite. It it’s QAI certified, it’s good to go irregardless of where it’s grown. If it’s USDA certified, it’s still better than eating nerve agents.

              • mkey says:

                I certainly do no appreciate the natural aggressiveness of your expression style, especially when it’s based on conjecture and unsuccessful reading between the lines. Feel free to drop it at any point if you choose to converse with me further. Either we can communicate without said outbursts or we can’t communicate at all. Both solid options.

                Now to the point: I’ll eat the food which “looks” least poisoned because I don’t have much choice currently. I’d like to grow my own produce, but right now that isn’t doable. Government regulation, real estate prices and lack of focus on my part being the main culprits. Another issue is that people who’d like to work “by the book” will always face a landslide when met with the avalanche of those who don’t mind any regulation and as such pose disloyal competition. Damping prices will kill any market promptly.

                I can either buy “regular” produce or produce labeled “organic” which costs about three times more and is imported from wherever. Not that much of the regular produce isn’t imported. Like I stated previously, much of the food sold in my area is from abroad. Much of it from faraway lands, such as China or Argentina.

                To put things in your blunt fashion: if I have to choose between two questionable sources of food, one of which is several hundreds of kilometers away, I’ll go with locally produced food because it’s more probable that it took less time to get from the field (on which it supposedly grew) to my plate and therefore is probably less chemically treated than food which needs to survive the trip while keeping that fresh look.

                If there were a reliable local or less local producer I’d go with that no problem. There are some more reputable sources of food in the area, but in the end it just boils down to how well do you know someone and if you have trust that said person will, to the very minimum, direct you away from less savory product they have on display. “Hello, do you have such and such? – No, not for you.”

                If you choose to believe your local governments’ certification, power to you. I know what stands behind many certification processes in my failed state and much of them stand for absolutely nothing. Everything boils down to who do you know and how much are you ready to pay for the “certification.” Government agents, so called inspectors, are easily corruptible and even when they can’t be corrupted (or are too expensive,) “producers” (for all intents and purposes they are resellers and repackagers) will simply pony up for the fine and keep raking in the profits.

              • wingsuitfreak says:

                Like I said, if you choose to eat food that is guaranteed to be poisoned, but it is your neighbor poisoning you, then go ahead. I already stated the USDA standard is corrupt, but it is at least more likely to be safe. I don’t care about the distance as I don’t believe in peak oil or global warming, nor do I care if farmers are better businessmen in China. If they are too incompetent (or greedy) to grow organically, then they aren’t good neighbors. Good neighbors don’t put Mustard gas in your salad. Where I grew up, you shot neighbors who try to kill you. Today, we call it being neighborly. I’m not for supporting anyone who doesn’t even bother to go through the motions. If you see a QAI label, it is better. I don’t know why you choose to eat poison (I eat nothing that isn’t either certified or of known origin) but that is your right. I just think it’s insane. That’s all I have to say on it. Not pissed, just baffled as to why anyone would think it’s a good idea to support their local homicidal maniac. For that is what they truly are.

                Many of your points don’t pass the common sense test nor are they logical, but that’s OK.

                You are right about purchasing organic foods from other countries. Don’t.
                I will not buy organic food from China (and even some Chinese I know avoid imported Chinese foods).

                Mike Adams of Natural News did some major Lab tests on organic foods, protein mixes and supplements. He points out many ‘frauds’. Most rice in the U.S. is imported from China. Rice is often used in protein mixes. He found that regardless of being labeled “organic” that it contained very high levels of arsenic and also had some other heavy metals.
                Evidently, one aspect is that farmers in China are irrigating from polluted rivers.
                Lundberg Rice is U.S. grown and it tested zilch, nada, for arsenic.

                I avoid buying “organic” produce from South and Central America and from Mexico. I don’t trust it. A friend who once lived in Costa Rica told me how the organic farm hand would spray insecticide on the crop. I know first hand how things work in Mexico…bribes…grease the palm…or lackadaisical concern about the integrity of the product.

                So, I am with you. Don’t buy that foreign “organic” stuff. Go local. Go Croat.

                HRS: there’s actually a “seal of approval” dubbed “made in Croatia” awarded to anyone who’d like to have the state stand behind them

                http://www.print-team.hr/images/proizvedeno-u-hrvatskoj.png

                I don’t put much stock in that seal. I’ll source this here, even if most of you subscribers won’t understand a word of it.

                http://www.forum.tm/vijesti/je-li-hrvatsko-uvijek-domace-i-je-li-kvaliteta-uvijek-hrvatska-3722

                As they put it aptly in the article, this issue is tainted by consumerist patriotism. For products labeled with such a stamp you are not even assured the product has been made in this state, forget about the WAY it has been made. EU “regulation” introduces even more layers to the issue. Sometimes you are not even allowed to state the provenience of the product because EU doesn’t want manufacturers to be “biased.” Pure politically correct lunacy.

                A number of these seals is issued by the governmental agricultural MARKETING department and their goal is to establish products are patriotic and they expect that “quality should follow” from the fact it’s made in Croatia – that’s a quote, if you can believe it.

                About half of our food is imported. We export about 60% of total worth of our imports. In such climate it’s difficult to believe any of these agencies are technically able to approve anything, even if they tried.

                There’s a number of failed governmental agencies issuing all sorts of these seals. These “agencies” are plentiful as there are a lot of people that need to be “taken care of” since their political cronies owe them one so whenever a politican needs to take care of people, they form a new governmental body and there you go.

                It’s a sad state of affair.

                In the U.S. there are so many “seals” or “association certified” that I was thinking of making my own seal for my product (if I make a product). “This product certified by Joe Bob Brigg’s inbred cousin’s cousin.”

                Yes. He comes up with some off the wall certification which I did not mention. I was specific in mine. And then claims there are holes in my logic. I think there are holes in his brain. By the way, I order many products from China. These are herbal products and they are not only certified organic (not some dinky unknown institute that only mkey has heard of) but the company runs their own independent testing of the products. HomeRemedySupply, I would NOT trust anything Mike Adams says. I remember when he bought all that testing equipment. That was when he declared he was a “scientist”. His favorite mantra at the time was “I have a high IQ, I have a commercial pilot’s license”. It was really embarrassing. Many of the conclusions he reached were based upon very superficial data. This was about the same time he fell under the Alex Jones spell. I think he was having a meltdown. However, I would worry more about the US than I would China. While the USDA certified organic (the only other one I mentioned was QAI and it’s international as well) has problems, they are not the problems that mkretard claims. And that certification is certainly far better than any chemical farmer’s poison. Which he apparently prefers if it’s poisoned locally.

                Jim, No way to speak to friends.

                Hey, he’s the one that thinks that either the USDA or QAI is a local organic governing association. I think he’s an idiot and I stopped tolerating them a long time ago. It’s a necessary survival skill down here in flouride-a.

                Jason, China has naturally high levels of arsenic in their soil. Also, even if they cheat, it would be better than the outright chemical farming. Which is his choice.

                HomeRemedySupply= I’m not the one who started the insults. I’m just more brutal than he is. I guess I don’t have his estrogen levels.

                mkretard, you asked for me to supply the source for my charge that you would rather eat poisoned food than organic. And by the way, if you go through this comment thread, one will find that your argument changes it’s position faster than a politician will lie to you. Your problem is that you are a can’t person. They never get anything done as they always have a reason they can’t do anything. Anyway, here is just one of your comments which have done nothing but prove my comments:

                I certainly do no appreciate the natural aggressiveness of your expression style, especially when it’s based on conjecture and unsuccessful reading between the lines. Feel free to drop it at any point if you choose to converse with me further. Either we can communicate without said outbursts or we can’t communicate at all. Both solid options.

                Now to the point: I’ll eat the food which “looks” least poisoned because I don’t have much choice currently. I’d like to grow my own produce, but right now that isn’t doable. Government regulation, real estate prices and lack of focus on my part being the main culprits. Another issue is that people who’d like to work “by the book” will always face a landslide when met with the avalanche of those who don’t mind any regulation and as such pose disloyal competition. Damping prices will kill any market promptly.

                I can either buy “regular” produce or produce labeled “organic” which costs about three times more and is imported from wherever. Not that much of the regular produce isn’t imported. Like I stated previously, much of the food sold in my area is from abroad. Much of it from faraway lands, such as China or Argentina.

                To put things in your blunt fashion: if I have to choose between two questionable sources of food, one of which is several hundreds of kilometers away, I’ll go with locally produced food because it’s more probable that it took less time to get from the field (on which it supposedly grew) to my plate and therefore is probably less chemically treated than food which needs to survive the trip while keeping that fresh look.

                If there were a reliable local or less local producer I’d go with that no problem. There are some more reputable sources of food in the area, but in the end it just boils down to how well do you know someone and if you have trust that said person will, to the very minimum, direct you away from less savory product they have on display. “Hello, do you have such and such? – No, not for you.”

                If you choose to believe your local governments’ certification, power to you. I know what stands behind many certification processes in my failed state and much of them stand for absolutely nothing. Everything boils down to who do you know and how much are you ready to pay for the “certification.” Government agents, so called inspectors, are easily corruptible and even when they can’t be corrupted (or are too expensive,) “producers” (for all intents and purposes they are resellers and repackagers) will simply pony up for the fine and keep raking in the profits.

              HomeRepairSupply, while it is true that some of what he reported was true; one also needs to remember that China does have a higher level of naturally occurring arsenic and fluoride than most countries. However, Adams insisted that it was because China was cheating. I didn’t find the levels that alarming myself, but that is an opinion thing. However, Adams went full retard at the same time he got that equipment. He was off on rants about the Mexican invasion (at the time, we were experiencing a decline in the immigration for a few years. Canada was the leader in illegal immigrants), he was blaming them for some flu outbreak (there was no discernible pattern and the worst cases were in the mid-west and the east coast). Did he do good work on gmo’s? Yes, but that was tainted by his sloppy research on everything else. Just buying lab equipment doesn’t make one a scientist. I don’t think he understand many of the principles needed to form an opinion other than this is in that and so on. Yet, he would still come up with outlandish theories based upon dubious data. I say dubious, because due to the his interpretations, one has to wonder if he knew how to properly use the machine. In any case, mkretards arguments keep changing with every comment. That can be easily verified by simply reading this thread. While admitting absolutely no knowledge of farming (how can anyone who knows anything of farming not be aware of the value of manure? he goes to make outrageous claims to support his belief that he can’t eat organic foods. That is deception and I have no tolerance for such.

              • wingsuitfreak says:

                Basically, mk’s argument is based upon the price of organic, rather than anything else. He lives by the Eeyore philosophy (all is lost, so I’ll just give up). He is not conducting an argument, but a justification for his behavior. Those are totally different things. I have never mentioned “local” certification processes, but international ones (USDA is recognized internationally, and even the problems I have with it don’t make it as bad as GMOs and nerve agents). I’m done with this now unless mkretard wants to rephrase his argument. Like I said earlier, if he wants to guzzle round-up I’m fine with it, but don’t go all jeezus freak on me about how it’s justified.

    My suggestions for the heat would be loose cotton or natural fibre shirts, boardies or a sarong when at home.
    If it’s really hot at night have cold shower & lay on a dry towel under the fan, if it’s possible, better than aircon.
    I prefer not to drink cold water room temp is better, hot tea wonderful. You are in the land of wonderful refreshing tea. Chill leftovers or fresh tea for a cool drink if preferred, add lemon or lime or any of Japan’s great citrus.
    Get a hat with a bigger brim so u don’t need so much sunscreen which makes u really sticky & sweaty, long sleeved cotton shirts are better.

    • I forgot. When I lived for a while in Austin Texas we had naked parties all the time. Primarily because it was sooo HOT! Boobies were a close secondary reason.

      Granted, everyone I knew was a Burner. They all went to Burning Man, held every Labour Day in Nevada, and/or Burning Flipside, held every May Day near Austin. At these art festivals the people are often more than liberal and nudity just ain’t no thang.

      I think there’s a Burning Man regional event in Japan, but I’m not sure as it’s been 9 years. If you have kids it’s only an issue if you make it an issue.

      Sex is another thing distinctly different from nudity and public sex is frowned upon by all because adult privates events are to be within secured areas, should you be inclined.

      Almost everything is permitted and tolerated but not necessarily embraced. If you don’t like it, don’t do it. There’s so much else to do.

    • HomeRemedySupply says:

      sjb,
      Good advice about the cotton. In the summer I often would wear a loose fitting long sleeve.
      I hear ya about room temperature water.

      With Corbett’s haircut, a hat is probably a good idea. 😉

    Heat suggestion (analogous to William James’ first smile & then be happy):
    Just act cool and after a while, you’ll feel cool.

  40. wall says:

    James, what is your opinion on Fukushima and the danger it poses and its effect on life in the Pacific? I keep reading things from people like Dana Durnford and Agreenroad that you say it is all safe. But I have never seen you say that. And connectingdots on youtube says that you are a shill and also says that nothing is dying in the Pacific but it is not safe to eat from it.

    So, frankly, WTF? Please clear this all up. And why are you still living in Japan? I am not trying to insinuate anything BTW, I just want to know what is up.

    Oh, and as for the article, yeah, I used to game a lot as a kid and the older I get the less I can tolerate those stupid collect crap fests. I wonder if people will just get tired of the worthless and unpleasant waste of time games are.

    They distract us from so much more important. Lately even staring at the wall seems more fun than most games.

  41. HomeRemedySupply says:

    Hi wall,
    While I can’t speak for Corbett, I do know that James has talked about most of the things which you asked.
    For example: In this 34 minute Questions For Corbett #005 ( https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cJ1WC3ugo3Y ) James covers a lot of stuff, including information about how you can first-hand, for yourself, get data on Fukushima. James also talks about living in Japan.

    The “SEARCH” bar at the top right of this webpage is your friend.

    The “Questions For Corbett” episodes and “Subscriber Only” videos often give folks a glimpse into Corbett’s daily life.
    Many members have their FAVORITE CorbettReport Episodes listed here…
    https://www.corbettreport.com/hidden-corbett-report-gem/

    And wall,
    What humour…
    That is hilarious about “connectingdots on youtube” or anyone else who tries to tell people what to think about James Corbett. Ha! That is so ironically silly backwards upside-down inside-out, it is hard for me to wrap my head around it.
    Oh! An authority figure!!!
    …Oh yes!…
    …connectingdots or person or YouTube blogger or the media or a pundit or a “certified PhD expert” or a government agency…
    …Oh yes, finally someone tells me what to think.

    James Corbett would probably slap me up the side of my head if I said, James, Thank you for telling me what to think, because I can’t think for myself.
    He would have me retread Kindergarten.

    • I love the Corbett Report but…

      I _hate_ the search function. I find Google is far better at finding things I’m looking for on TCR. I have asked for a site map so that I could throw up more information on InfoGalactic (a second rate but uncensored version of Wikipedia where you are actually free to write articles about “fringe” or anti-establishment issues).

      Also, if there are criticisms, silly or not, of James Corbett and/or the Corbett Report, I’d also like to add them to this article: https://infogalactic.com/info/James_Corbett_(journalist)

      I’m embarrassed to say I haven’t updated it since February because I decided I’d try to write new articles for other “worthy” people. I wrote an article for Pearse Redmond and Tom Secker who I’d been corresponding with. Secker was a curmudgeon and also hates Corbett for some reason he won’t expand upon so I can’t say if it’s warranted. Pearse was quiet but friendly and wanted donations (which I can’t do) but not cryptos (which I had). After I worked for a couple weeks on them and published their articles they insisted I take them down without any compromise. (Unlike Wikipedia, at InfoGalactic you are allowed to edit your own articles, as long as it’s true.) Because I respected their privacy and work I got the admin to do it. The admin said they were good but deleted them and their history anyways. Then from nowhere Pearse called me a troll and told me to fuck off. To be clear I was an enthusiastic fanboy he could have ignored or declined at any time but I am not a troll. Truthstream Media has not responded to my queries and article – and I’m okay with that. A troll would repost it and get nasty. Sure I’m spouting here, among friends, and while I’m bitter about it (and his broken promise of a journal and some bonus shows) I’m not being nasty and I’m not lying. It’s all in the emails. I still like their work.

  42. wall says:

    Uh, okay, I just wanted an answer, not assinine sarcasm.

    Furthermore, I am not allowing them to tell me what to think. That is why I am asking questions.

    • wingsuitfreak says:

      He gave you an answer. Smart people try and look up the info first, then ask for clarification. It’s how you learn how to think for yourself. Now, had you accused me of sarcasm, you would have been correct. But HRS gave your question far more respect than it deserved. One of the problems with modern society is no one even bothers to look anything up at all. They would rather argue all day long than do even a basic google search. Ah well, such is life in the land of the statist.

    • HomeRemedySupply says:

      wall,
      I apologize. I wasn’t targeting you. I didn’t mean to come off rude or like an ass to you. Honestly. It is not my demeanor. Perhaps my poor choice of words or phrasing.
      I only meant to throw a dirt clod at the clod who is telling lies about James Corbett.

    • mkey says:

      Your sarcasm detector is completely off the mark.

    • “Sarcasm… I’ve heard of that,” he said sarcastically.

      Who is the “the clod who is telling lies about James Corbett”?

      Corbett’s impeccable armor is like that of Smaug. I’m sure he’s got a scale or two loose, but he shares knowledge and bitcoins rather than horde gold. I have no Black Arrow but I do have insatiable curiosity about heroes, legends, myths, and propaganda.

  43. wingsuitfreak says:

    By the way James, in the beginning of the video (I just remembered this) when you were asking if it was just you? I totally understand, though not implying that I am even close to being aware. Strange how the more you see how the world really works, the more insane everyone else appears. While you’re not alone, you very nearly are. But it’s always been that way. I was just re-reading my Baltasar Gracian the other day when he was whining about how it took so much more work to find a single sage today than it took to find the seven of ancient Greece. That in the 1600s. Such is the price of awakening to a lonely world. 🙂

  44. NES says:

    I read this article via Steemit. A very awake poster commented so appropriately that I’m reposting the essence of her comment here. She remembered the children’s movie, “The Labyrinth” where David Bowie’s character is trying to achieve his goal of ultimate authority by any means possible. He says:

    “I ask for so little. Just let me rule you, and you can have everything that you want. Just fear me, love me, do as I say, and I will be your slave.”

    Is it humanity who gives these creepy parasites their authority. They must have our permission to rule. Don’t give it. Turn off your TV (if you’ve not already), get off Youtube, Google, Twitter and FB where you tell everything (up to and including your BMs), push back from the monetary table wherever possible and generally clean up your act with regard to giving over your power. It’s personal–very, very personal. They can only rule those who ALLOW them the authority. Imagine a world where you don’t.

    • wingsuitfreak says:

      This is true, but remember that these platforms are just that; platforms. While I only use gmail (for subscriber stuff) and YouTube, I have a purpose with that usage. Even James uses YouTube, and he is hardly submitting to these powers. I have found a lot of good in YouTube (though the others are basically a waste of time. Which is their purpose anyway).

  45. wall says:

    Also, you forget, just because he had an opinion at one time does not mean it still stands.

    This is an old post its now 2021 and I am just learning about carrot from here!
    My kids have not mentioned it either so I would have to guess it didn’t make it past the provinces mentioned? Then again health apps are not my kids type of apps. I have used only 1 health app and it is just to see how far I walk. I wonder if there are others like this out there? I am sure Justin will release some stupid app soon enough.

      Unfortunately he has! 🙁
      What is going down in Canada now is an absolute nightmare.

      Unprecedented lock downs, quarantines, mandated health apps (yes you read that correctly) ‘nazi-style’ police tactics etc.

      For the last few months anyone entering Canada must quarantine at a hotel for 3 days (at their expense) awaiting their mandatory PCR test results. The designated hotels are charging more than 3 times their regular rates (yes more money under the table from the government).

      You need to take 3 PCR tests! One before arriving in Canada, and two in Canada just for extra good measure. Your second test in Canada comes 8 days after the first you take at the airport.

      You will be pestered by daily calls from government officials once you arrive at your home to resume your quarantine there.
      And you will even be visited by an government officer to make sure you are adhering to the quarantine.

      And just how does the government keep track of all these tests and procedures? Haven’t you heard of the ArriveCan app yet?
      It is mandatory for all travelers entering Canada now.

      It makes the Carrot Rewards app seem like child’s play!

      The province of Ontario has gone bat-sh_t crazy under commie-style ruler Ford. We are in week seven now of a mandatory province-wide lock down.
