I think I’d go mad!!!
OK – I am uber-maternal, my ‘mothering instinct’ engaged to more than two standard deviations from the mean…
In other words, if you will let me, I will ‘mother’ you!!!
I gave up everything – from my business to some incredibly lucrative opportunities – to stay at home and be my kids’ mom. Just because they wanted me to: even knowing it will deprive them of video-games and expensive holidays, y kids said they’d rather have me income-less and home, available for them. And, to me, this is the highest compliment my kids could ever pay me and the greatest indulgence my husband could ever grant me!
So, I cannot possibly imagine how this woman felt: she had a panic attack (and, during my pregnancy with my first son, I suffered panic attacks during the last trimester, so I can relate…but they were just panic attacks caused by hormonal surges and nothing deeper than that!!!), somebody called emergency ‘to help her’ – and she got taken into a ‘psychiatric hospital’, involuntarily committed, sedated and, without her permission or even knowledge, her baby was removed via a C-section and even though she is fine now, the baby is up for adoption!!!
UPDATE: Ezra Levant brings the story to light:
General warrants, anyone?
This does not even address the problems inherent in breathalyzer tests.
In other words, if we refuse to submit to a test with an instrument we know is likely to give an artificially high reading and against which there is no defense (as the analyzed sample cannot be retained for more accurate re-testing), we are automatically deemed guilty.
Please, don’t get me wrong: I do not advocate drunk driving. As a matter of fact, I will not drive after having had any alcohol – and will abstain from drinking alcohol if I expect to be driving. Even if I were well under the legal limit, if I were to get into an accident and harmed someone, knowing my reflexes might have been impaired by my irresponsible consumption of alcohol, I would have a hard time living with myself. So, I always drive sober!
In other words, the inaccurate readings of the breathalysers are not likely to ever affect me in the least and I truly ‘have nothing to hide’ – as the video stresses! It is not about ‘hiding something’ – it is about the principle involved!!!
How can so many of our ‘best and brightest’ be so dense?
Vancouver’s door knob ban gets ‘honourable mention’ in this month’s Reason TV’s Nanny of the Month!
NB: See the updates below, this gets much worse. This started out as a relatively routine post on Islamist infiltration of public institutions until a bit more digging uncovered just how insidious the rot is. Toronto Police Services Chief Bill Blair sits on the advisory board of the Gulen Movement’s Intercultural Dialogue Institute. The Founder of the Gulen Movement Fethullah Gülen is a rabid anti-Semite. The Ontario Government has gifted 500K of your money to help build this anti-semitic organization’s Ottawa headquarters and our Minister of Citizenship & Immigration is happy to break bread with them. Our political class is comprised of useful idiots.
U of T is playing host this week to a “Religions and Social Innovation Conference“. One of the events sponsors stands out, the Intercultural Dialogue Institute, this is the Canadian branch of the Gulen Movement, and bases itself on the teachings of the movement’s founder, Fethullah Gulen.
The Gulen movement has among it’s primary goals the Islamization of Turkey and the Turkish Islamization of the Muslim diaspora : “M. Hakan Yavuz, a Turkish professor at the University of Utah and astute observer of the Gülen movement, states that “its main goal has been the Islamization of Turkish society.” Bayram Balci, another Turkish scholar who has studied the Gülen schools, said, “Fethullah’s aim is the Islamization of Turkish nationality and the Turkification of Islam in foreign countries.”
Much more prominent in the US, the Gulen Movement has come under fire for its system of charter schools which have received federal funding to establish what are essentially Islamic madrassas: “Americans may not realize it yet, but Turkey’s regression from a secular democracy into an Islamic state may be based on an educational movement that has also taken root in America. Imam Fethullah Gülen and his Gülen Movement (GM) have had enormous influence in setting the increasingly Islamist agenda of Turkey’s ruling Justice and Development Party (AKP). Much of this is due to GM’s vast empire of media entities, financial institutions, banks and business organizations.”
More on the Gulen Movement: Protesters want Turkish Islamic cleric ousted - “The protesters repeated earlier accusations against Gülen, arguing that he is connected to the government now leading Turkey and is seeking to Islamicize the country. Speakers also discussed charter schools affiliated with the movement across the U.S. and said Gülen is using American tax money to spread his message.
Umit Dikkaya came from New York City and joined friends. She wore a shirt proclaiming that she is proud to be from Turkey. “We’re here to expose the reality about this Gülen movement,” she said.”

Sadly Toronto Police Services Chief Bill Blair sits on the Advisory Board of the Gulen Movement’s Toronto Branch, the Intercultural Dialogue Institute. For the record here’s the Gulen Movement’s Canadian web site listing the offices of the Intercultural Dialogue Institute offices across Canada. This proves, once again, that our political class are know nothing useful idiots of the Islamists.
As always our politicians are quick to make Kissy Face with Islamists: Iftar with Hon. Chris Alexander, Minister of Citizenship and Immigration
On April 23rd, 2013 Honorable David C. Onley, the 28th Lieutenant Governor of Ontario hosted a reception in honour of the Intercultural Dialogue Institute (IDI)
Unbelievable: The Ontario Trillium Foundation contributed $500,000.00 of your tax dollars to the construction of the Gulen Movement’s Ottawa Offices!
The Intercultural Dialogue Institute building will be a reality by July 2013. The Institute will be a centre to foster cultural understanding and dialogue amongst ethnic groups by offering educational, social, and youth programs to people from diverse communities. It will provide essential services for newcomers to settle in Canadian society and move into the workforce.
The project will cost about three million dollars. Thanks to the Ontario Trillium Foundation for their contribution of $500,000 as the Community Capital Fund.
