The 1966 Agenda of the National Organization of Women (NOW)

The 1966 Agenda of the National Organization of Women (NOW) was only the first of many such agendas and has undergone numerous changes and transitions since the first in the long series was published. During the 1990s, I downloaded the 1966 agenda of NOW, because I feared that at some time in the future the agenda wouldn’t be available at the NOW web site anymore, either because NOW will become defunct, or because NOW might find their 1966 agenda to become an embarrassment, or both.  The 1966 Agenda is quoted here unabridged, except for the comments I provided after each of the portion of the quoted text of the 1966 … Continue reading

76 years after the end of WWII – still no peace treaty with Germany?

76 years after the end of WWII there is still no peace treaty with Germany. Will there ever be one? Let’s wait and see. “Following the German military leaders’ unconditional surrender in May 1945, the country lay prostrate. The German state had ceased to exist, and sovereign authority passed to the victorious Allied powers…. The Soviets unilaterally severed the German territories east of the Oder and Neisse rivers and placed these under the direct administrative authority of the Soviet Union and Poland, with the larger share going to the Poles as compensation for territory they lost to the Soviet Union. The former provinces of East Prussia, most of Pomerania, and … Continue reading

Evolution and its Consequences : Random Chance or Intelligent Design?

Do evolution and its consequences happen by random chance or intelligent design? Stephen C. Meyer, Douglas Axe, Chuck Darwin, and Me Three Evolutionary Siege Howitzers and a Popgun By FRED REED • OCTOBER 7, 2020 • 11,600 WORDS https://www.unz.com/freed/stephen-c-meyer-douglas-axe-chuck-darwin-and-me/ It seems odd that the author’s logic leads to the conclusion that, when it comes to human evolution, free will becomes a hindrance rather than a boon, at least for as long as we assume that an objective of human evolution is for humans to propagate. That aspect of evolution is a loose end of the essay. After all, an ever increasing number of people insists that the objective of human … Continue reading

Benefits of COVID Vaccines Outweigh Risks

Updated 2021 02 01, to show  Canada’s rank in progress of administering vaccines. Unknown COVID vaccine side effects may appear after millions immunized—but benefits outweigh risks, asserts News Week. (More, by KASHMIRA GANDER ON 12/3/20 AT 7:21 AM EST)  “Unknown COVID Vaccine Side Effects May Appear After Millions Immunized—But Benefits Outweigh Risks.” Really? That assertion is pure speculation. The side effects are unknown. It is unknown whether they will or will not appear. Furthermore, it is unknown how severe or prevalent the side effects will be, if they do appear. Therefore, no one cannot accurately estimate what the risks are and calculate whether the benefits of the vaccines will outweigh the risks … Continue reading

Canadian Federal Gross-Debt History

Usually, Canadian Federal Gross-Debt History focuses on only the accumulated budget deficit.  The expression extremely rarely focuses on the remaining 80 percent of government deficits, that is, on unfunded or unsecured liabilities.  Take this example: FRASER RESEARCH BULLETIN; April 2019 Examining Federal Debt in Canada by Prime Ministers Since Confederation, 2019 By Jake Fuss and Milagros Palacios Full article The following graph is from that article. Note: Few people ever (and neither do Fuss and Palacios) address governments’ unfunded liabilities (at least not in the indicated report). Gross Debt Commonly, Gross Debt is the sum of the accumulated budget deficit.  That is allocated or borrowed money to pay for government … Continue reading

World population projections – Beware of sources

Updated 2019 05 24, to present more “precise” estimates of annual numbers of deaths caused by abortions, worldwide. UN world population projections are widely known.  Two other sources of world population projections deserve to be known as well.  They are the Wittgenstein Centre and IIASA.  The credibility of any of those sources is in the eye of the beholder.  Time will tell whose projections realistically predict what the future brings. Contrary to the UN projections, the IIASA medium (most likely) scenario indicates that world population will increase to 9.2 billion by 2050, peak at 9.4 billion around 2070 and start a slow decline to 9.0 billion by the end of … Continue reading

Freedom and Equality vs Rules and Power

Updated 2019 05 09 Freedom and equality vs rules and power — all are essential for symbiotic coexistence in a successful, thriving society. Many clamor for “freedom and equality” and forget that the price for that is “duties and obligations.” Fairness is a bit more difficult to achieve. There is little fairness in equality of outcomes. The latter is the enemy of and defeats the former. The concepts of fairness and equality of outcomes are incompatible. Still, a successful, thriving society uses the right tools to establish a good balance in the apparent conflict between freedom and equality vs rules and power, by allowing and promoting them to exist in … Continue reading

Click-Through Rate Page Views per Visit – SEO and GSC

This is Part 5 of Web page ranking and search engine optimization : SEO Updated 2019 04 22, to make addendum. Click-Through Rate (CTR) vs Page Views per Visit – The first is high on Google’s priority list, the second apparently not so much, leading to Google ignoring 94 percent of the traffic to dads&things, or does it?  Search Engine Optimization (SEO) and Google Search Console (GSC) help with sorting some of that out. Click-through rate (CTR) is the ratio of users who click on a specific link to the number of total users who view a page, email, or advertisement. It is commonly used to measure the success of … Continue reading

Female innocence is what media and courts say it is

Adele Horin (†2015) was a feminist who wrote about female innocence. The Australian Advocate should have been so hard on Adele Horin. The editors of the Sydney Morning Herald she wrote for obviously felt that she was doing a good job, or else she could not have been a media award winner. Adele Horin was just trying to make a living and delivered in her articles nothing more than what her editors expected of her. “Adele Horin, writer for the Sydney Morning Herald, is no stranger to the trappings of wish-fulfilment journalism. For many journalists, you see what you need to see, and in the case of Adele Horin, men … Continue reading
