“Awareness” brings attention to the star, not the issues

David MenziesMission Specialist

A 63-year-old homeless man named David Thompson has just embarked upon a cycling trip across Canada to “raise awareness.”

You'd think the priority would be to get a job, but Mr. Thompson has chosen cycling for “awareness” as his calling.

There was a time when “raising awareness” meant fundraising and getting things done. Dr. Jonas Salk didn't bicycle to draw attention to polio, he created a vaccine to eradicate it. But our homeless cycling friend isn't doing any of that. In fact, the press coverage seems to have more to do with Thompson himself than any of the issues he's brought up.

I would not usually comment on a fool such as this….however….I have former family members(ostracized by myself) not just similar….but nearly identical to this “crusader.”He represents the worst and most cancerous form of (projected) altruism….
Evil comes in many shapes….some are readily identified…. some deliberately disguise themselves to avoid early detection…..and others are simply mutations and miscues because nature does not always"get it right".
All of them are malignant……..and will kill the “host”……given the opportunity.

It sounds like Mr. Thompson might be a graduate of the Justin Trudeau School of Eekonomics and Fairy Dust Collectors…
…so you can’t really blame Dave – who appears to be a true beneficiary of Jihadi-Justin-Groper’s ‘trickle-down’ theory of ideo-voodoo-ology economics!

David Menzies….You can make a great story out of any topic.

I was listening to the Nigel Farage show the other night. This woman called in (off topic) demanding that Nigel bring awareness to how difficult it was to be a woman, not only a homeless woman, not just a single mother but all women. Nigel politely, in the English way started to cut her off. She then screamed, " you don’t know what its like to be a woman." He then cut her off.
If she was on topic, I would have liked him to explain that men pay 72% of the total taxes to keep that type of nutcase alive.

Perhaps he is going to make the public aware of Trudeau’s evil, along the way. That being the case, then he deserves a medal and a continuing supply of cold beer for the road.
