how to tell what a Canadian Dominatrix is compared to their more familiar American ones.
America is a great nation that has left footprints of varying size and depth all over world history – but when certain INDIVIDUAL Americans travel the world – and this has been going on for at least as far back as the 1970’s to my specific personal knowledge……so probably a lot longer.
Some Americans pretend to be Canadians, as if the whole world, can’t tell us apart – because Americans and Canadians appear to look alike.
but Americans do not – cannot – act Canadian enough – so basically
the whole world knows America’s dirty laundry
because it’s Republicans who strut on the world stage everywhere they go, without stepping lightly or sensitively and it’s mostly Democrats/Liberals who try to be Canadians
and all that says to the world, is about the shame that America feels inside – the woundedness of the zero-sum culture that is America
and Canada – we don’t do zero-sum – we don’t dominate anyone
we’re peacekeepers. but that’s how we dominate, we bring and make people be peaceful towards each other – and we dominate so slightly, so lightly, that everyone – even most Canadians – have forgotten what a dominate Canadian vs a submissive Canadian is – and very very few people can recognise what a Canadian – who goes both ways – top and bottom, bottom to top, topping your bottom…..at the same time……without a safeword, because, there is no place safe from Canadians, we’re welcome everywhere…..because we not only can go both ways, we can do both ways at the same time, and most people, who think they are dominating us, have no idea, Who’s the Boss.
Canada has have been content to live in the American shadow so we can be Small Town all the time – and only dance on the world stages – After America has done all the heavy lifting – but also, having done, a lot of the dirty work that causes that heavy honest lifting up of peoples and nations – but only the ones that America wants something from.
and Canada – we don’t play that because we can grow enough food and have enough oil and water – without ever having a trade agreement with anyone – it is possible for Canada to be isolationist, sustainable and self-supporting.
Not likely and not probable, but certainly possible – with the right Prime Minister – who’s able to share their vision of Canada that includes ALL CANADIANS – just like the 1985 Charter of Rights proclaimed combined with all the social equality advances that were made possible under the Charter Challenge Program.
Which was originally set up to address language rights – and any other social justice rights of vulnerable minorities….like us gay and lesbians and bi and trans – but also anyone who – when they watch Question Period on Parlimentary TV – and they don’t see anyone who looks like them or acts like them or that what they see – the behaviours or the particular people or this party or that party collectively…..
because rights don’t need to be excerised – they are supposed to be a given – a default – everyone equally valuable under the law and entitled to equal access to all the laws of the land in which – WE ALL PAY TAXES.
And it’s true, we don’t all pay the same taxes – but paying TAX is what we are investing in our nation – in each other – to make sure – that everyone has equal opportunity and treatment under the law – and that no one person or group be able to enforce their bigotry or prejudice or bias – against any person or group of people.
Not since The Murphy Gang of 5 – established WOMEN as PERSONS under the law. We all all PERSONS under the law – and the kind or type of person we each may individually be – drawn from a range of group identifiers – doens’ t matter and MUST NOT AFFECT OR EFFECT how we are treated by each other or under the law.
We do not have to indivually assert under the law or so called corrective processes – what we have collectively establish as law – through legislation and litigation legal precedent. It’s a waste of money to fight over what is, in fact the law – and it’s a waste of money and people – to fight to apply the law in a narrow or restrictive application – because the law is at once, the letter, the spirit and the intention – and the law fails only when Powers Of The Day – forget that we are all PERSONS under a threeway law – letter, spirit and intention.
the law does not work, if there is deception about intentions…..
Sorry – it’s hard to do a blog with a World Audience and a Specific Canadian audience at the same time. You see, I developed an inability to communicate – on June 10, 2010. But I can’t talk directly about that without triggering a panic attack.
Heck, I can’t even think about it, without panicking.
SO – waves hands, deep breath – focus and back to subject of the actual blog:
America needs Canada – because – we make you – look good.
But Canada – doesn’t need America and we don’t want your zero-sum culture here. But Canada – for the most part – ADORES America in many ways – so brash, so bold, so daring – after all – America is a hard act to follow – being the first nation to establish in law that :
The Individual is the social unit of consequence – and that’s hard to balance in a family values culture.
Because the Individual has the FREEDOM to TAKE LIBERTIES with WHATEVER MAKES THE individual HAPPY.
and most people – all over the world – do not come from happy families so…..
– in fact – Canada is so horrified by the zero-sum way that Americans talk to each other so lets get right to the BIGGEST ELEPHANT: that NO CANADIAN WANTS TO TALK PUBLICALLY ABOUT.
hint – it’s not Gay Marriage – that became the law of the land in 2003 – and Mr Harper promised to abide by that – and he hasn’t kept many promises because he rarely ever specifically promises anything – he agrees to follow the will of Canadians – but he is trying to shape what it is that Canadians actually will – and he can’t understand why so many of us do not and will not trust him – and it’s his own fault.
He fixed election dates to 4 year intervals and caused parliamentary non-confidence votes or collapses of government such that it caused the Governor General to actually do what a Governor General is supposed to – and she didn’t because there was no precedent to follow – and she played small instead of being Governor General and being the precedent – and taking away the chair that belongs to the Position of Prime Minister of Canada – being sat in by the leader of the government of the day – In Trust – for all Canadians.
so – the topic that most Tears America apart – is not what tears Canada apart.
In America – it’s Abortion.
Roe V Wade legally established abortion rights for women. You guys can’t get away from that discussion or any life v death discussion
which, if you all really believed that there was a god who sorted people out – why can’t you let people run their own lives and be accountible to themselves and whatever god(s) they have? or let your god sort them out when they die – without your assistance……..
In Canada – people are just as passionate – but we do not assert our private beleifs in the public square
Canada’s anti-abortion law was struck down around 1980 by the Supreme Court of Canada.
It was never replaced – it just became a private health matter under government regulations under the mandate of Health Canada.
so our abortion debate is over free standing clinics vs in hospital access to abortions.
The only people that abortion stand alone clinics really serve is the protestors (Callout to my Dad for giving me this bold line for a high school debate – back in 1985, because I know he’s reading my blog and he has gotten the weird idea that I don’t listen to him)
– and the Canada debate is how many blocks away from the clinic do Protestors have to stand before they can be arrested for interfering with other people going about their LAWFUL business – whatever business brings them to the street the clinic – among other businesses – are?
because if Protestors stood outside and protested in front of hospitals, they would be beaten with their own signs for bothering people going in and out of the hospital for a wide range of reasons
so pretty much, the only politician who brings up abortion as an issue in Canada,
is the one who’s trying to not get elected
So, I think, that the hard question that Canadians have to ask themselves – is what kind of a Prime Minister do they want?
One that is inclusive of all Canadians or one that, well, says they are but doesn’t really seem to have a clear vision that they can specifically say and abide by and who just doesn’t resonant with most Canadians and who only seems to resonate with only narrow segments of Canadians…..
Because – there are problems and the Two Party System in America has resulted in a zero-sum culture and there are problems and our Three Way Federal Party Plus Quebec’s Federal Party – that’s 4 parties which is basically a fancier Zero Sum.
But like most Canadians – I would like to support the Green Party – but beyond the environment, their platform is a mix of everything – which makes them hard to pin down – but they are so darn determined – darling underdogs – and doesn’t that – alone – make them the one party that includes some of all kinds of Canadians?
