I often question why I am expressing opinions on social media .? I am not a politician, just an ordinary everyday person ..But, I can put my hand up for my Children & Grandchildren to say .I did my upmost to challenge, change & make this world better for you .
I resolutely refuse to be complicit to #Tory Gov Economic Murder of vulnerable people, I tried hard to keep our magnificent #NHS for your future care & safety.
It is A Labour of Love & My Duty as a Mother Grand Parent & concerned Citizen of the #UK #Britain
I know I am not alone worrying about the sheer lack of real & decent #governance. The toxic level of #greed & #Corruption & Lack of Accountability ...& worst of all the disgrace of the #Tories #Media & #Press Blaming All their woes & shortcomings on Immigrants & Refugee's

This is your daily pension announcement: All hail the miraculous budget edition! It's miraculous because it would take a miracle for any of its projections to actually come true... Read more here: #ABLeg #handsoffmypension

I was in the House for the reading of the budget speech and the ensuing melee. I also met the writer of the blog above (David Climenhaga). I entirely concur with his observation that the Legislature is once again lousy with corporate lobbyists of all stripes. #weareback
The speech itself was short on any details. No pension announcements for instance. He did indicate jobs were the number one priority. He failed to mention that jobs were also the greatest failure of the UCP so far. #ABLeg #fail #failhard

This is your daily pension announcement: The goose and gander edition.

Well, we are all bunkered in here in the pension war room.

Just so you know, loyal followers, Kevin and Travis are thinking of you every day. #handsoffmypension #ABLeg #ABEd
Let us go back to page 120 of the Fiscal Plan released on October 24, 2019. Teachers know that date as when it was announced that ATRF investments were being ripped away and given to AIMCo. Then, Bill 22 was rammed through the Leg with almost no debate. #antidemocratic
Refering to this action, in the words of @PensionPulse (Leo Kolivakis, more on him later):
"This is Canada, not China, you don't rule by dictatorship and some Conservatives never learn and their arrogance will cost them political points in Alberta's next election."

The Conservative party could arrested and charging you for you had a trip to Syria or Yemen. This is what the authoritarian country likes to do. What they are saying is very dangerously. If the conservatives was in charge, this could be used to against their political opponents.
You have already seen what Russia did this to their own people right? Just imagine if Justin Trudeau lost the election and Andrew Scheer was in charge, he passed this law in parliament and every non conservative voters because this law was been rushed off their rights to vote.
Conservatives doesn’t know how to handle the terrorism , they didn’t even directly answer the reporter’s question, but they’ll lies to you for the political interests, they’re the enemy of Canada democracy. #ScheerCuts #ScheerDisaster #cdnpoli #VoteForTrudeau #dictatorship

To mark the occasion of #LaborDay2019, I will transcribe an interesting, 91-year old #German text on #Marxism that has never entered the #internet before this post of mine. (I tried quite a lot to find the text, to no avail.) I will manually transcribe it, then translate it.
..
..I won't give the source, and also won't say WHY I don't give the source.

I repeat that it is a literal quote (from a 1928 publication), probably published during the #WeimarRepublic:

"#Marximus .. [ist] .. staats-, gesellschaft- und kulturzerstörend .. gegen jeden Staat,..
..jede Gesellschaft, jede Kultur ... ist #Marxismus ein #Aufruhr der #Eigensucht
gegen das #Gemeinwohl, also das Gegenteil jedes wahren #Sozialismus, denn Sozialismus muss stets das Wohl des Ganzen dem des Teiles voranstellen ... seine „Vorfurcht“ [sic; see dictionary entry
..

"I want to warn the world about an unprecedented danger that’s threatening the very survival of open societies.

…I’ll focus on #China, where President #XiJinping wants a one-party state to reign supreme."

project-syndicate.org/onpoint/the-ai…
"Xi is trying to consolidate all the available info about a person into a centralized database to create a 'social credit system'..people will be evaluated by algorithms that will determine whether they pose a threat to the 1-party state. People will then be treated accordingly."
"#China is not the only #authoritarian regime in the world, but it is undoubtedly the #wealthiest, #strongest & most developed in machine learning & #AI.

This makes #Xi the #most #dangerous #opponent of those who believe in the concept of #OpenSociety."
