INCHING TOWARDS A POLICE STATE:
Definition: a state or country in which a repressive government maintains control through the police
The term police state describes a state in which the government exercises rigid and repressive controls over the social, economic and political life of the population. A police state typically exhibits elements of totalitarianism and social control, and there is usually little or no distinction between the law and the exercise of political power by the executive.
A police state transfer the rights and power to Corporations and the people who invest in them, the laws and regulation are not binding to them. Capitalism breeds incest...money and power is the key focus regardless of cost or damage.
The inhabitants of a police state experience restrictions on their mobility, and on their freedom to express or communicate political or other views, which are subject to police monitoring or enforcement. Political control may be exerted by means of a police force which operates outside the boundaries normally imposed by a constitutional state.
REASON...The Age Of Enlightenment:
The Age of Enlightenment (or simply the Enlightenment) is a term used to describe a time in Western philosophy and cultural life, centered upon the eighteenth century, in which reason was advocated as the primary source and legitimacy for authority.
Enlightened absolutism (also known as benevolent despotism or enlightened despotism) is a form of absolute monarchy or despotism in which rulers were influenced by the Enlightenment. Enlightened monarchs embraced the principles of the Enlightenment, especially its emphasis upon rationality, and applied them to their territories.
Its important to know where we have come from, to know how we got where we are now, and where the future will take us.
Incremental erosion of rights and freedoms to a point of absolute control with the exscuse of reason.
How ever, "Reason" is the mental faculty that is able to generate conclusions from assumptions , it may look good an paper, but in realty it doesn't work.
Take for instance the case of Abby the dog that is being targeted for zero tolerance with out any respect for the dog or the owner. The dog is treated as a "thing" with the "assumption" that it is vicious....guilty with out proving...what happened to innocent until proven guilty?
We consider ourselves to be humans, and as such dominate with out discretion over all living things, indeed in control of the whole world and its fate. considering all other life forms inferior and below us..."just dumb animals".
But consider the fact that all living things are "Earthlings", and as earthlings mother nature blessed all earthlings with a balance of life, all have certain guaranteed rights. For example all Earthlings are guaranteed the right to air, space, and the right to consume food and water, for take away any one of those rights and we wither pysicaly and menatlay, eventually leading to death.
Humans are taking away those rights, some times in one fall swoop, like clear cutting forests or incrementally with laws to limit those rights. The right to free movement, A dog that is kept in a small cage or even yard, never been taken off the leash when going for a walk, can slowing go out of its mind, to a point that it can become dangerous, those are the ones that end up biting someone. If only people who owned pets understood them and cared for them as a "person" instead of a show off "thing". the difference being that as "person" you would treat them as you would like to be treated, as a thing, people treat them by the book, like robots that aren't suppose to make mistakes.
Last year there was a case of a person killing his neighbors dog...how soon we forget. Hear is an article I published in the local paper Feb 08.
Animals are people too: we are the creators of our own madness.
Recently in Kamloops there was a case of a man killing a dog that kept barking. The man phoned “by-laws” several times with out resolve, as a result of inaction of by-laws and owner of the dog, the man was forced to put the dog out of it’s misery or face being driven out of his own mind by constant barking. It could be ruled that the man was already driven out of his mind, it would take a lot to push someone far enough that they were willing to physically harm an innocent animal. It was sad what happened, but what quality of life did either the dog or the man have? The man; was psychologically tortured with the noise pollution of constant annoying barking, much the same style as seemingly harmless water torture military use. The dogs life; tied up, 24/7, no time spent to train or socialize, not taken for runs to burn off energy, abandoned emotionally, often just a fashion statement or security tool to scare thieves away.
Some people complain at the slightest sound of a dog’s bark, while other’s have to put up with the constant sound of barking for hours. We must except a dog is going to bark from time to time, say for up to a half hour, especially if a bear is passing through the neighbor hood, a balance of commonsense and reality is the remedy. When my neighbor goes to work his dog sometimes barks for hours, at which time I go holler at it and it with my PO voice, it seems to understand and shut up, some times I even reward it with a treat to build a relationship. I could be a jerk and call by-laws or I can learn to live with a little noise pollution or develop a relation ship with the animal.
Many people have a misconception that animals are stupid beings that have no feelings or understanding of emotions. Animals often get treated badly with the exscuse, ”there just dumb animals”. The problem is compounded by so called “professionals” and politicians dictating how to treat animals. Currently most professionals state; never let your cat see the light of day, keep them inside 24/7, keep dogs on leashes, tied up and caged, never ever give your dog a bone, and spay or neuter your animal ASAP.
Local bylaws contradict dogs healthy living by dictating all dogs in any park must be kept on short leashes, even in mountainous rural parks out in the middle of no where. Some breeds you can get away with a depressing meager life on a leash but many high strung dogs go out of their mind if not allowed to burn it off some how. But hey… politicians and professionals who’s only experience is to have gone to college or university know best, 20 year old text books have all today's answers, right?
It’s a known fact among people with real experience, fixing animals before their a year old often screws with their brains creating a hormonal imbalance with varied side effects, like disobedience or barking like a young pup for hours on end. It’s no “bull” either, just look at the difference between a bull and a steer which is castrated at a early age.
Keeping your cat inside,(an animal designed to live out side) for it’s entire life is equivalent to you being kept in your bathroom your whole life. Put your self in your cat’s life…sure your healthy, fed, even loved, but just beyond that window is what life is all about. Cats learn where home is, letting them out for a few hours during the day is not going to bring the world to an end? Not taking risks is like you never leaving your home, you might get hit by a bus, or slip on the ice. Don’t be selfish, life’s about quality not quantity.
Bones for dogs are more beneficial than harmful as they clean teeth and prevent gum disease, one in a million might develop a problem in the intestine if fed the wrong type. One in ten thousand humans are in serious auto crashes…. are we to stop driving?
Truth is that animals have every emotional capability as we do, they may use them in different’t ways, but make no mistake. Often times animals have much higher abilities than our own, like eagle eyes, canines sense of smell 100Xs more sensitive than our own, and horses sensing our emotions before we recognize them ourselves. It is sad how humans have taken for granted all living creatures, sending many to extinction, treating the rest as items of consumption or amusement with no rights or recognition.
People need to realize dogs, (man’s best friend) are born with certain emotions and instincts. Programmed with a need for physical contact and approval from it’s master. Most dogs, (especially the larger breeds) are filled with energy that needs to be used in some form. Dogs run up to 35 mph for which people forget, the majority of people keep their dogs on short leashes, afraid they might get into trouble because they neglect to teach the dog life's rules. It should be law that dogs be taken off the leash and be able to run several time a week. Not doing so causes a build up of energy and emotions for which can drive a dog to irresponsible behavior. It’s amounts to canine cabin fever, some are more susceptible than other’s, being tied up or penned off 24/7 builds an anxiety rush of energy to escape. The shorter the leash and smaller the cage the animal is kept in the greater the effect. Animals were born to be free, in wide open spaces, granted we do have to make concessions in today's world. However there should be laws out lining certain facts. To own a large breed animal is a lot of responsibility, and training. It is instinct for dogs to bark, and dogs in packs switches on the animals killer instinct, this is why attacks are usually in two or more dogs. People owning more than one dog, (especially certain breeds) need to be held more accountable.
All living things are born a blank computer, certain instincts waiting to be programmed usually done by the parents in the wild, but when humans intervene and take for granted or make assumptions it often leads to trouble. Animals can be taught to interact in any situation, yet it is the lack of interaction that causes grief for both the animal and people.
It’s sad how society has taken for granted and lost that sacred connection of respect, understanding and healthy coexistence with each other. Animals used in consumption should have minimum standards of living. As a kid growing up on a farm, our cows would have good life, lots of clover, summer’s spent lounging around the mountain range, eventually they would come down in the fall and then be shipped off to the slaughter house with out suspecting a thing. Today's world, the cows get stuffed on a feed lot, crammed full with little room, living a life of stress, often fed meat substitutes, and pulp from mills and factories, creating mad cow disease. Never getting the taste of fresh grass, or roam on a range. The it goes to our grocery stores at a premium price while the traditional farmer’s in BC are going bankrupt.
It’s also disgusting current poultry farm standards allow poultry to be stuffed together so tight that many die from suffocation, no room to move. Then moronic “professionals” wonder why destructive diseases like avian flue are developing in Canada. Commonsense dictates birds treated so inhumanely like the 60 thousand birds crammed into one or two barns so tight they can’t turn around will eventually create a cesspool of diseases. The same is true as if it was a thousand humans stuffed in a barn to live, eventually deadly disease will break out…duh, yah “think”; government rope-a-dopes will ruin us all.
We are the creators of our own madness…challenge madness!
How many instances are there of a dog biting some one?
In Abby's case there weren't even any complaints, bylaws was just driving by, the dog was not at large, rather off her property by just a couple of feet. No warning or knocking on the door of Abby's owner, just Abby vanishing.
Two weeks later bylaws actually sat outside Abby's home and waited for her to come out for her morning sniff for a few seconds at 8am. There was a witness that saw the officer call Abby off her property, seems they aim to make a example of Abby to keep the rest of us in line. Intimidation is a key ingredient in a police state....fear is the goal...fear of fine, fear of jail, fear of loss in quality of life.
A fine effects the quality of life...not for the rich, the rich can afford fines, but for a pensioner or low income family, even the average person, it takes food from their mouths, so it puts the fear of obedience in them.
The people who make the laws use the exscuse of reasoning that some one might get hurt if a law does not exist...just how many people have been bitten in Kamloops?
"There are two types of laws: just and unjust... An unjust law is a code that is out of harmony with the moral law...
An unjust law is a code that a numerical or powerful majority group compels a minority group to obey but does not make binding on itself... (like water bylaws, slash burning, or accountably)
One who breaks an unjust law must do so openly, lovingly, and with a willingness to accept the penalty." MLKjr
LAW OF STUPIDITY:
Each year in Kamloops two or three pedestrians are killed...ask yourself why? Could it be because there is a law that gives the right away to pedestrians, people putting so much faith in the law, feel they can relax their vigilance to be alert and respect automobiles?
If the law was reversed and auto's were given the right away, wouldn't this force the pedestrian to be more alert, cars would still stop at a cross walk during heavy traffic, but during single car traffic, (when people get hit) cars would not have to stop...the right away goes to the car and the pedestrian crosses "when it is safe to do so"...sort of when you come to a stop sign, or make a right hand turn on a red light..."when it is safe to do so"....reality not assumption. But hey!, the law is the law and some ego manic, selfserving dumbass took alot of your tax money to spew his personal view on society!
Admit to a mistake??? government don't make mistakes...only tax payers do.
THE FUTURE OF BYLAW;........BAD ODOR BYLAWS
For your enlightened consideration
The Rude Odor Eradication Act is sponsored by the fair fragrance franchise marketing control board
Be it resolved that the passing of noxious bowel odor gases is anti social behavior when it takes place in a confined area, such as elevators, small meeting rooms, and other poorly ventilated locations.
The passing of gas, or “farting” in the colloquial has been deemed an transgressor act exposing others to internal hazardous vapors and second hand fart inhalation. There is a likelihood of pathogen transfer if high density vapors are released from a contagious orifice.
The other, equally valid consideration, is the injury to the spirit of those who are odor conscious and make an effort to smell nice. The nasally correct who have achieved a professionally created, socially approved scented balance must have recourse to those inconsiderate odiferous disease spreading criminals.
Everyone has the right to breath clean correctly scented air!
Undercover plain cloths detection and enforcement teams for bowel gas bylaw violations can be lightly armed and need not be armored. They can operate in pairs per building random riding elevators and patrolling halls and confined spaces.
Each member will be trained in the handling of bowl gas source detection ferrets which can be carried unobtrusively concealed in special clothing compartments, purses or satchels. These ferrets will be trained to locate the source of any bad bowel odor. Each ferret and handler will be verified and certified via regular retesting to be able to accomplish this feat of source location accurately.
Every odor enforcement officer will be required to carry an air sampling device which will capture the offensive aroma and match that in an analytical laboratory against an anal swab to be performed immediately upon arrest. Each sample must be properly labeled under the rules of evidence to comply with court procedural rules. The arresting officer will have the authority to deploy TASER weapons on the offender should they fail to bend over upon request for sampling.
Each proven offense must be accompanied by a $250.00 fine.
A repeat malodorous offender may be incarcerated for up to, but no longer than, 6 months.
A medical certificate will be required at the time of the arrest if health grounds are to be used as a lawful excuse. Only illnesses of the bowels will be considered a legal excuse.
