1. To see announcements in the press that health authorities are giving out crack pipe kits to addicts is merely sad and predictable.
This idiocy is, after all, just another part of the harm seductionist strategy to encourage the legalization of practically everything.
So, biz as usual.
But to see the Vancouver Sun editorial writers endorse this destructive sham is very discouraging indeed.
Distribution of crack kits is good policy
Their worst argument comes late in the piece:
"As we have seen with Insite, Vancouver’s supervised injection site, the project could ultimately result in more users seeking treatment."
This is the most spurious, devious and untrue spin by the quasi-scientists who support Insite.
The bald faced truth is that the little shooting gallery has turned over very few addicts to treatment, as anyone in the real treatment business will testify.
A friend of mine says that Vancouver Health is now helping hm with a personal problem.
He has been beating his wife regularly for years.
Now, in the interests of harm reduction, he is being given soft leather boxing gloves to wear at home so as to leave no marks.
2. Should public servants be held to a higher standard of behavior than the rest of us?
Should those who work in the areas of public safety be cognizant of behavior that help or hinders public safety?
The assistant fire chief in Esquimalt is a drunk driver.
So he gets banned from driving for a while.
So his boss gives him a vacation.
Ze mind boggles.
3. The "Families First" Premier misses the Pride Parade and doesn't ensure that someone from the government or the party is there to represent either the government or the party.
This is not tragic or a slight or anything evil.
It is just flat stupid.
No planning. No thought.
If it doesn't spin, it's not our kin.
