"Enviro-Elementary": Where being a carefree child isn't part of the curriculum

David MenziesMission Specialist
 

If you're of a certain age, your memories of wall postings from elementary school classrooms likely recall child-like drawings of favourite cartoon characters, some so good they made you wish you could draw that well. 

Now when it comes to walls and wishes, kids are more likely to be bombarded by Ghandi-like messages imploring them to "be the change" they wish to see.

Urged on by wall postings made on recycled, rapidly renewable, eco-certified, compostable paper products, kids are surrounded by the heavy yet childish messages of environmentalists who can't seem to let kids be kids, not even at school.

Being surrounded by environmental propaganda, you'll feel like you've entered the biosphere of the bizarre -- a place that will make you want to get in touch with your inner celery stick.

Thank you for dropping in and don't forget to turn out the lights when you leave.

Maybe in Ontario they’ll augment these messages to supplement their new fangled Sex-Ed curriculum; eco-anotomical-gender-fluid children. And to think they only had the alphabet up there when I was a kid; I guess I live in a ruinously self-sufficient life.

Brian Kelly said to RICHARD BRINKMAN … people like you want us to go back to the stone age. Isn’t that what ISIS wants, too? Hmmm…, coincidence? Maybe, maybe not.

The “MENzoid” is obviously one of the evil Martian penisoids who have been gang raping Gaia the man hating Earth Goddess of the Venusians……and therefore a heterosexist heterocentric heretic who should be made to recant everything he said here.

Richard Brinkman- You are a hypocrite, what car do you drive? What do you heat your home with? Apple iPhone or other? Tupperware or some other plastic company? Live your life like an environmentalists and you will get some respect for your ideas, or live in a advanced society like the rest of us and enjoy all things that society has created, people like you want us to go back to the stone age. Until these environmentalists life their life according to what they say then I myself cannot have any respect for these people as they are hypocrites.

Until these environmentalists stop driving cars, stop heating their homes, do not use cell phones or anything else made from plastics, then they are a hypocrite and they should not be listened to. If one is a true environmentalists then you would live your life that way, not live your life using all these fossil fuels and then condemn those very people for using fossil fuels, hypocrites.

@richardbrinkman – Menzoid is doing his job as part of The Rebel.
You on the other hand are a locust putting links to your shitbag blog and your shitbag website.

No one wants to read your communist puke, you communist puke!!!

Extreme right wingers think that everything that does not share their extreme right wing perspectives is “lefty-biased trash”.
Does it ever cross your mind to wonder whether it might be your own ideologically extreme position, more so than bias, which leads you to PERCEIVE bias in any case where a fair hearing is given to both sides? Not likely. Only media which unabashedly praises Harper and reliably bashes non-right wing politicians is “unbiased” from your extremist perspective.
And what will most Rebel readers conclude from such a comment? Obviously, no duh … I am too “biased” to see “right wing truth”.

Ron,
Like any government venture. Without free money it will die and us taxpayers foot the bill for their misadventure, We also foot the bill for their corruptions. In the 70’s where Bombardier is now. It was a crown corporation called Canadair. Friends of the Liberals paid 1/3 of the land value alone for buying Canadair. Remember it had a runway. A huge piece of land in the island of Montreal. The $200,000,000 plants were icing on the cake.
Today, Bombardier is crying for government grants. And all the lands where the runways were have homes valued in the millions on them. Where are these monies? I lived right next to this bullshit in the 70’s. I wish I was a friend of the Liberals.

KILL THE CBC! KILL THE CBC!!-

In keeping with the theme of this video, I suspect the Ontario Education/Propaganda Politburo came up with close the lights after their last bad campaign ‘FLICK OFF’ or maybe they can’t differentiate between a light and a window. If the are thinking close the switch then they are even bigger morons than people think, closing the switch turns on the light.

ALEX ARMUTLU, I agree KILL THE CBC, or rather do whatever it takes to kill the money it gets from taxpayers because there is no way this leftwing propaganda machine, which all taxpayers are forced to financially support, will ever be transformed. A state-supported national broadcaster no longer makes sense in this day and age and is dangerous because it will cowtow to whatever political party shares its ideological position – yes there is no such thing as neutrality – or promises to give it the most financial support, something that Mulcair, for example, has promised to do.

I sent the following to some big shots at the CBC. On the cc, I asked them to fact check what I wrote. The addresses may be handy for you guys in the future.
KILL THE CBC! KILL THE CBC!!
Fin Donnelly was on Power and Politics today. So was the story on the two Conservative candidates who were kicked out. I have been calling the CBC a left wing propaganda machine for a long time now. Let me point out some facts that occurred today that justifies my wanting of our, yes OUR, 1.1 BILLION dollars to stop going to the CBC.

- Fin Donnelley was interviewed alone with nobody to argue against what he said. I am so upset that from now on I will be referring to Fin Donnelly as “Lying Prick”. With no counter comments, the lying prick had it easy.
- The first question asked to him by the lady was “OK tell us your story”. How convenient for the lying prick.
- To the CBC’s lady’s credit. She played a video from a few days ago which completely contradict what the lying prick was saying today, Only the lying prick commented. Even a two cent lawyer like Mulcair would have been able to expose the lying prick’s lies.
- The lying pricks interview was the shortest of the day. The report on the two Conservatives was much longer.
- Later on that show, they have the Power Panel. it is where experts comment on the days events ( the one with helium head Rob Silver and flaming Ian Dipstick). Not one mention of the lying prick. IS THE CBC LEFT WING. God no
- Guess which topic was discussed the most. Yes, the two conservative candidates who did something three years ago. WHEN THEY WERE NOT CANDIDATES.
Why is a French citizen running to be Canada’s Prime Minister. Not newsworthy.

David Menzies – you need to put the YouTube settings back onto private for this turkey – that was horrible friend – Here’s something that’s environmentally comical found on YouTube – Big Oil exchanges her wedding vows with Government on the front steps of the Alberta Legislature : https://youtu.be/pWPWMvHXTUI

“This video is private” On a different note though to Jay Kelly. That is one hell of a scary thought of Lizzie May squatting on someones front lawn.

The Rebel environmental YouTube has been either deleted or it’s published as private on YouTube – If you are up for a little environmental edification here is a video of a young man on the Alberta Legislature steps sharing his ideas on protecting the environment – planting trees YouTube: We Children want a Future Too – plant-for-the-planet https://youtu.be/i4tTZ-AYa-I

I’d love to watch this video, however for some reason I’m locked out of it.
commented 2015-09-07 20:38:31 -0400
Jay I have to agree. This fellow served up something very down to earth in a way that was humorous and fun. It is a shame that political correctness disqualifies such candidates…..what is left after guys like this get bumped just doesn’t give me a warm and fuzzy feeling.
commented 2015-09-07 20:03:33 -0400
The video is still up, and it has gone from 100 views to nearly 10,000 in one day! Tim Detaud becomes the most-watched Conservative candidate on the day he is no longer a candidate. It is pretty funny stuff: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RIaDP0a-ygY

Further to Ron Voss:

Notley…McCuaig-Boyd…NDP…Gov’t of Alberta…Notley…McCuaig-Boyd…NDP…Gov’t of Alberta…all M.I.A. Gives a big hint about an NDP Gov’t federally.
commented 2015-09-07 17:31:15 -0400
Remember the juvenile antics of neophyte NDP candidate Deborah Drever elected in May 5
in Calgary, including putting a homophobic remark under a picture of Jim Prentice and Ric McIver, giving the finger to the Canadian flag, posing as a victim of a sexual assault, etc. Incoming premier Rachel Notley, tapped her on the wrist, suspending her from the NDP caucus along with the possibility of rejoining the caucus for good behaviour. Prime Minister Harper meanwhile took decisive action removing the two Conservative candidates. Typical leftist hypocrisy and double standard by Notley and the progressive media party.

Can’t watch the video … says it it private.

Hm. “This video is private” is all that displays.

And I see Brinkman is still trying to spam-sell his video collection. Yawn.

Brinkman moron do you get all your advice from kids? Thought so you dumb socialist tool.
