I Have Become…Comfortably Numb

Have You?

   The other day I was going into the London Drugs on Vancouver’s West Broadway St. .  There was a panhandler outside and two big men from the store were headed outside.  I was obvious what was coming…they were going to remove the panhandler.  That happened and when the men came back in I said to them “oh, i don’t like that’….they said yes, most customers didn’t like the panhandlers.  


I said, ‘no, i didn’t like that you had him leave.  that sucks.  he’s just sitting there.  maybe he’s an addict, maybe just down and out. maybe some of these people might rip people off, maybe some don’t, but most think they do.  yet these same people who don’t like the panhandlers would walk into a place like london drugs and get ripped off.  it’s the corporations who are ripping people off everyday yet no one asks to have them removed.’.

The young men agreed.  I suggested they take my complaint to their boss.  They said they would, but i doubt it.  

yes, there are some aggrissive panhandlers ……just lke aggressive marketing campaigns, telephone soicitors etc.. they should all stop.  but isn’t it all like window shopping?  you don’t HAVE to go in to certain stores , you don’t HAVE to give to every panhandler.  but hey, if one’s playing a cool tune you like, or is doing some neat drawings, writing poems, or just has a catchy line or phrase….why the hell not drop a toonie in their bucket?  there’s no gst and you were just entertained.

how comfortably numb are we?

This is Cinder.  She is a spayed Bouvier, about 4 years old.  Cinder was my dog but was given away without my permission or even consultation while I was in Hawaii.  She is black with a few white hairs and last had a red nylon collar on.   Her rear stifle joint has a torn ligament so she limps a bit.  She has a sweet disposition but a Bouvie bark and growl, though she will not attack.

Cinder was last in West Vancouver under someone else’s care until I came back.  I love her tremendously but no one will tell me where she went or is willing to tell her new people that a mistake was made.

If you see her or have any info, please contact me.  Please.

Canada’s New Government Changes Logo Again…

We all know that Harpo, Zeppo and Groucho changed the Government logo to ‘Canada’s New Government’…but when did they go to a different look? Why, I must have missed something while away…looks like the writers and producers of the B-rate continuuing ‘Who Dropped the Soap Opera’ series decided to go back to a neurtral look. However, the website still has the Prime Mordial’s page with the ‘New Government’ logo.

The NEW new logo says, ‘The True North Strong and Free’ .
Huh? Hey, I’m a terrorist and insurgent givng myself up because I support Native Sovereignty…maybe they’ll finally come get me for liberating the graphic and putting on it what it should say: ‘Our Home and NATIVE Land’ –

What’s REALLY disturbing is the ad on Canada’s site:
Is that ‘JOIN US’, or ‘JOIN U.S.’?
Too bad this version of the ad appeared tonight because earlier they had a great one full of subliminals….it looked like the torso of a soldier in the clouds, baring a hard-on. Hmmmm.

Meantime, Shawn Brandt ihas been charged for being part of a group of natives who stopped CN trains from running across the 6N rez ….oh gee, wonder why the trains were stopped? Maybe THE GOVERNMENT (gasp!) should have been tied across the tracks instead, just like Dudley Dooright coming upon Nell being placed there by Snidley Whiplash. Oh my, this ‘Who Dropped the Soap Opera’ is getting worse!!! Perhaps Shawn should file a counter claim.

Now why won’t come and arrest me?????? I liberate graphics from them, drive without a seatbelt, jaywalk, write about sovereignty, research ‘for the cause’ and promote it. what am I, chopped pemican or something?

I’ve even given them loads of search terms….am I really going to have to turn myself in, are they THAT lazy? Sheesh.

The Further Adventures of Scout…

Anyways I’m doing a housesit now under the most bizarre circumstances with the oddest landlords in the world. A Hawaiian sister’s best friend’s son was in an accident and is in a coma at the hospital in Honolulu. We came to feed the seven puppies, four dogs, two cats and three kittens. Luckily the two horses were moved to neighbours.

Maybe odd isn’t the word for the landlady and her daughter. How about cruel? First we caught the daughter, a middle aged woman, in the house and she’d put a lock on the woman’s bedroom door saying she did so to protect valuables. Right. Basically the woman’s only valuables are her saddles and tack (they ain’t in the bedroom). One morning I woke up to find the daughter at the kitchen table having coffee. Hmmm.

It goes on, and we call the daughter ‘Top Secret’ as she was in the military and claims she had access to top secret info. More like she was stationed on radioactive bases cause her mind ain’t quite with it and her body is 25 years older then it should be.

‘Top Secret’ likes to stir things up and tell lies…her old mother believes her, so while this poor woman is in Honolulu with her critical condition son, the sheriff comes around to serve notice of eviction, saying the rent hasn’t been paid. From the reciepts we’ve seen it looks like the rent is up to snuff. Who says ‘evil’ doesn’t lurk in the hearts of anyone?

I went and talked with the landlady but she wouldn’t listen and said it will be dealt with in court. Yup, you got that right because just like every fuckwad politician, corporation and common person around these days, I’d say people are slitting their own throats with their greed, bigotry, cruelty and whatnot. The pendulum is slowly swinging and we’ll probably see a few more years of heavy duty shit flying, but seems like more and more are paying attention and grasping the truth, which is all right under our big fat noses.

As my kahuna friend would say, ‘We are the evidence, not the crime’.

Enough, I’m going swimming tomorrow! BTW, haven’t had internet access lately…obviously.

Sunday Sermon by Crystal Methodist

Ha Hoo! Parishioners!!! This is the 4th day of Lentil. Heed these words:

Josh-Around (4:19-24);5:9-12

[The people came up out of the Michael Jordan mode on the tenth day of the first month, and they camped it up in Guygal on the east border of Jericho Beach. Those twelve stoners, which they had taken out of the Michael Jordan, Josh-Around set up in Guygal, saying to the Deadheads, “When your children ask their parents in time to come, ‘What do these stoners mean?’ then you shall let your children know, ‘Deadheads crossed over the Michael Jordan phase here on dry ground.’ For the Jack LORD your God dried up the waters of the Michael Jordan Fan Club for you until you cross dressed over, as the LORD your God did to the Red Commie Pinkos, which he dried up for us until we cross dressed over, so that all the peoples of the earth may know that the hand of the LORD is Size XLarge, and so that you may fear the Jack LORD your God forever, because fear is just so trendy”]

Jack LORD said to Josh-Around, “Today I have rolled a blunt for you to disgrace Egypt.” And so that place is called Guygal to this day.

While the Deadhheads were camped in Guygal they kept the hangover in the evening on the fourteenth day of the month in the plains of Jericho Beach. On the day after the hangover, on that very day, they had the munchies and ate the produce of the land, unleavened cakes, parched grain and Mars Bars. The manna ceased on the day they ate the produce of the land, and the Deadheads no longer had manna; they ate the crops of the land of Canada that year.
Hello, caller number one….what’s that? You think Toblerone or Kit Kat is better to eat? Shout it out….go ahead, next caller?

Sunday Sermon by Crystal Methodist

Ha hoo! Oh parishioners! Todays, on this third day of Lentil, our sermon is from Lukewarm 13:1-9, Repent or Parish:

Now there were some present at that time who told Jesus about the Gallbladders whose blood Pilates Exersize had mixed with their sacrifices. Jesus answered, “Do you think that these Gallbladders were worse sinners than all the other Gallbladders because they suffered this way? I tell you, no! But unless you repent, you too will all perish. Or those eighteen who died when the CN tower in Toronto fell on them—do you think they were more guilty than all the others living in the Metro area? I tell you, no! But unless you repent, you too will all have to buy genetically modified perishable goods.”

Then he told this parable: “A man had a fig tree, planted in his vineyard, and he went to look for fruit on it, but did not find any. So he said to the man who took care of the vineyard, ‘For three years now I’ve been coming to look for fruit on this fig tree and haven’t found any. Cut it down! Why should it use up the soil?’

” ‘Sir,’ the man replied, ‘Is this wise when City Hall has not yet approved your developement permit’ ”

So you see, do your Pilates daily and you might be hobnobbing with the town planner and get expedient re-zoning approval….hello, caller number one, go ahead please….
