Be prepared world, it’s official.

The US “Prez party”. I didn’t watched it as I do not approve of my southern neighbours in their choice.

I know I few good Americans here and there and despite an unhealthy love for weapons and very narrow-minded beliefs, I will never put all of them in the same basket. But yet… The majority did spoke and this majority is dangerous, and did show some  unnecessary violence throughout the campaign and after. The US has stepped 100 years backwards instead of continuing going forward and it will have major repercussions in their already fragile relationship with the rest of the world.

“There’s a reason why we, Canadians, always wear our Canadian flag when abroad, and it’s not only for pride for our country, but to not be mistaken as an American… and more than ever now, we should proudly wear it.”

Trump brings back the image of a country that thinks that world owes them, that they are better than other countries and they will bomb everything if needed (Sounds a bit like the muslim extremist party…). And yes, this is what the world sees, sorry to break your bubble. This image started to fade slowly with Obama, but you cannot change decades of negative reputation in only 8 years, but you can destroy 8 years in one hour.

I could go on and on with this subject, but I do not think it would change anything… I mean, this is the country that wants to bring more weapons each time there is a mass murder…

I will wish you all best of luck.

NOTA: I am not putting this image as a disrespect but as the image that Americans will destroy their own country, themselves, by their own hands.

Same shit, different year.

I have been out of my “beloved” province of Quebec for nearly 2 months now (Feels good!). I came back a couple days for an appointment, that’s it. So I ain’t much aware of what is going on in this corner of the country. I don’t read news from TVA or RC anymore. Today, I talked to my mom on the phone for an hour or so, and she asked me: “Have you heard what they are doing again at the UQUAM?” Of course I didn’t, so she tells me. At this very moment, I just “facepalm” myself.

I think that pretty much the entire planet heard about the 2012 student manifestations in Montréal against the raise of education fees. At the time, I understood the “why”, but of course, they had to take it to another level: Breaking store windows, destroying cars, annoying simple citizens in the middle of the night, throwing stuff at officers, intimidating the students that wanted to get in class, etc. And of course, what ever happened, it was everyone else’s fault, not theirs. All this lasted forever, and in my head I was like: “You are complaining about education fees, but you have been months in the streets, trashing stuff, wasting the money you have put in your education.” Logic? None. What should have been done? A couple pacific manifestations, not more and a petition sent to the ministry. Period. Instead they’ve cost millions to the city for all the damage they have done and for the SPVM forces to try to keep control of those little simple-minded trouble makers (At the end I would have sooooo asked the army to get in).

So we are now in 2015, and here we go again. Students are back on the streets of Montréal, but this time it has NOTHING to do with education. Zero, nada! Just another reason to skip class and be an ass? Yeah, pretty much looks like it.

I am fine with raising your voice against what seems wrong, I would manifest for what I believe in, sign petitions and give some of my time/money, when I can, to causes I believe in. But this? Again? I thought that we were an intelligent, well educated, perspicacious, civilized and peaceful nation. Well, I should know better that 3/4 of the Montréal and province population don’t think ahead, don’t analyze, lives in the past and are stubborn and won’t search further than their little nose… or should I say belly button. Lived there, lived it. And yes, I repeat, I am an authentic french Canadian from the province of Québec, born in Montréal, raise in the suburbs. But my eyes are wide open and I have learn to be open-minded.

Anyways, students are back on the streets and they are repeating everything that happened in 2012, including being bullies to those who wants to learn. At this point, I don’t even know what to write over here. I am so disappointed and discouraged, just another shame to had to the list. I can only say “WHAT THE FUCK IS THIS AGAIN?”. Where is the logic? How is it okay to break everything, skip months of classes, bully, be threatening to police officers (and of course after complaining they were a little rough), break all the manifestation laws in place to make sure it’s secure to now make your right to manifest discutable? Do you think that anyone will listen to you? Why would they? You only show the smallness of your intelligence and lack of logic. I really hope in the future that when I’ll be in need of a lawyer or cardiac-surgeon, it won’t stumble upon one of them, i’ll be fucked…
