An Accidental Panic Attack

It was a Comedy of Errors.

I had taken an item from the house to the back yard, and when I returned to the front door, it was closed and locked.

Anyway, my banging and ringing was answered and I spent the rest of the day managing the panic.

I breathed deeply, and had a glass of water with an “Emergen-C” brand fizzy vitamins and electrolytes – then I laid down and just breathed until I felt my alarm system stand down

I slept for a while

and tonight the dreamless sleep or maybe a dream

and then tomorrow is a new day

In 2017, This should not have to be explained

In America: Free Speech is about sounds from your mouth – it is a personal right and limited to the range of your voice.

It does not include written words, which are subject to liability laws – and professional published words are under other legislation.


Free Speech is about words and sounds; it does not include actions – such as using weapons or burning crosses. Free Speech is not responsibility free speech, nor is it limited to first speech, so speaking is at peril of being disagreed with, with another person’s words.

One may use talking points, or a bulleted list of points

Speech is not bullets, with life ending points.

Differences of opinions are required to be allowed in a democratic society.

There is no right to threaten verbally or physically harm or intimidation or actual harm to other persons or property.


In Canada, there is freedom of expression.


And, as with freedom of speech, it does not require others to listen to you; and there are limits about using one’s access to the public square to denigrate an entire demographic of people.

These are reasonable social limits – and it’s because the previous social attempts have failed – the 1970s Affirmative Action and the 1990s Employment Equity.


This was the Public being told to work and play well together.


And too many individual people refuse to do so outside of their demographic, and too many other people are trying to be “fair”; and who fail to understand


There is no “fair”: when one demographic wants to genocide another, and makes an issue of polite manners.

Sometimes, Dear Public the only reply to a person like that is “Fuck No, Lest We Forget”

There are no innocent people in anguish that these bad things that are clearly criminal in nature – there are bullies, enablers and victims.

Until there are only two of those groups left

By now, People Should expect The Spanish Inquistion, The European/USA Witch Burnings; and Government Genocides – which began with the Vatican in the middle ages; and then became Boer War concentration camps in South Africa; to the Canada Indian Act Reservation System (which inspired the later and now ended South African Apartheid); and into Industrial Production by Germany in WW2: European Theatre.

The WW1/WW2 wars to end all wars, the horrific destruction on a mass production scale

From Runners with Bayonets vs Machine Gun Nests to swarms of solders debarking on beaches vs machine gun nests, to 4 Shermans vs 1 Panzer, from Dog fights to Bomber Runs, to the first use of a weapon so horrifying it was only used twice.

Until 1964, when Russia’s Tsar bomb changed the very nature of all life on earth born afterwards – a test where the sound wave went around the globe 6 times detected.

Then, the space race… which takes more than one nation

and it’s not okay to pollute one area or enslave any demographic in meaningless dirty, dangerous and dull work; it’s all the same water and air, and the earth makes and ends land mass to ocean all the time.

Homo Sapiens is the only species that has shaped the landscape to suit civilization’s purpose.

We are all the same, the question is the smart; an arrogant species assumption

over-breed our niches and leave piles of feces

meanwhile, in the end of the America as a social experiment

where the individual became the social unit of consequence, rather than the family/clan or to the demographic born


This protecting criminal conduct: and it’s terrorism by groups, hate crime by an individual

and allowed by a nation, dictatorship of theocracy


June 22, 1992…By unanimous decision, the U.S. Supreme Court ruled that hate-crime laws that ban cross-burning and similar expressions of racial bias were in violation of free-speech rights.



It is unfair to tell the children to not bully, when they see what the adults do

Police complain about exclusion after being asked not to walk in Pride parade

Dear Police:

Deal with your authority Issues and learn some Sensitivity

then, you can be invited back

but right now, Police are a bigger social problem,

It’s not us, it’s you.

and this is more controlling harassment of the LGBTQ demographic, and some of whom, are cops

who really should know better, and that’s down to police corporate culture
RCMP vs Women Class Action
Military vs Women

That Word “Responsible”

it’s funny how those who claim to be reasonable/law abiding gun owners resist and reject reasonable laws about guns

Solving problems means having and knowing how to use the tools available

In Canada, guns are considered a tool of various trades, but in America it’s an accessory.

    +Todd Wright Alright. Since cars became more regulated the safety of them has continued to be improved over time. But what has happened to guns? Just curious what saftey features does you personal car has and do you think that it would have those features without regulations to cars?

    I love how you pick one year as an example. How About we look at the progression over time.

    I personally would feel better about some guy with a gun in public if he was insured. I would hate to be an innocence bi-standard to guy untrained guy trying to be a hero.

    And you privilege/ right argument is irrelevant in a discussion about regulation.

  • Nina Tryggvason's profile photo
    Never mind criminals, never mind the suicides n murders, never mind the mass shootings even and let’s not even count the accidental deaths of in family shootings – let’s use the Woman – who was actually a nuclear scientist by profession, who got shot in the head when her toddler pawed at her purse in a shopping mall. This is a person who has really no reason to not have known better – and, at least, it was her own and not a stranger’s family who paid for her overconfidence in her general competence.
  • Nina Tryggvason's profile photo
    +Tarrick DD Grant I agree, insurance for those would be good guys with guns – and quite frankly – cyclists if they really want to share the road, shoulder the load.
  • Todd Wright's profile photo
    (deleted blog whining about taxes)
  • Nina Tryggvason's profile photo
    +Todd Wright you do know that the Pony Express only operated for 18 months until the Post Office right? The right to exist is a right, and mobility is a social need. Guns are the problem and more and easy access is not the solution. your cognitive dissonance is horrifying and your “logic” is so skewed; so here’s a clue: if you defend the status quo; you are part of the problem.
  • Nina Tryggvason's profile photo
    indeed, militia, not polygamous family bunkers of proud ‘murcians armed against their own best government in the world.
  • Nina Tryggvason's profile photo
    +Tarrick DD Grant that rather depends on what demographic is in control of said regulation.
  • Todd Wright's profile photo
    The right to protect self is a right
    Nothing in my home is registered nor will it ever be…. I can do my own loads, I can even make my own rounds should those be regulated, if I run out of lead, I can use aluminium, tin, or even melt pennies if in a hard bind

Marriage and Equality in Canada, eh

Before Marriage Equality was in Canada in 2003/04

in the 1990s, there was Egan and Nesbitt, who sued Canada for spousal benefits in retirement

I was a baby dyke when this was happening

Egan V. Canada (F.C.A.) Between James Egan and John Norris Nesbit, Appellants (Plaintiffs), and Her Majesty the Queen in Right of Canada, Respondent (Defendant) … on Appeal from a Judgment of the Trial Division Dated Dec. 2nd, 1991 …
Canada's First Gay Activist Climbs Martin Luther King's Mountain
James Egan and John Nesbit were a gay couple that had lived together since 1948. In 1986, when Egan reached 65, he became eligible for Old Age Security and a guaranteed income supplement. When Nesbit reached age 60, he applied for the spousal allowance available to the spouse of a pensioner between the ages of 60 and 65 in cases where the couple’s combined income falls below a certain level. The government denied Nesbit the income supplement, explaining that “spouse” is defined as a member of the opposite sex.

Human Rights a Day - May 25, 1995 - James Egan and John Nesbit
Brian Mossop was a Canada Government Employee

his partner was the publisher of Xtra, Toronto’s queer newspaper, now Canada’s

He won same employee benefits for gays and lesbians as heterosexual employees got – he sued for bereavement leave when his partner’s father died so he could attend the funeral

Brian Mossop won same rights for Federal Government Employees, regardless of sexuality.

Mossop won, not so much the court case,  After his case, the union negotiated and got benefits in the contract for all employees

I’m not the problem. I’m someone who understands race isn’t an orientation or a gender identity. LGBT means something!
  • Nina Tryggvason's profile photo
    LGBTQ is inclusive of all the demographics. as a community that has caused social change, we need to accept it internally and this is more about generational changes
  • Tranime Girl's profile photo
    The whole point is gay, lesbian, bi, trans, etc… doesn’t pick people by race. It is dumb to put race or skin tone on the flag. I am definitely not the only one who feels this way about it, and I’m pretty pissed off at “you’re part of the problem”. No, the problem are people who have to stamp race on to EVERYTHING. In the LGBT community, race has no importance – nobody is separated by race. …and this new flag undermines that.
    2 skin tones have been picked out as more important. The new flag does not represent the community.

  • Nina Tryggvason's profile photo
    +Tranime Girl people lead with their demographic of concern; Jim Jones used the rainbow to mean ethnicity before his Jonestown event – the queer pride flag colors were not meant that way, and originally the flag was 8 colours, including hot pink and teal, which was too expensive to print and were more meant as those chakra colour charts, mind body spirit. but, that was then and this is now, and we need to stop bickering internally, the Godbots are the problem, as always

Skittles omitted their corporate rainbow, to not compete with ours;  and for our market share
Dear People, the package has no color with black printing

We need to stop the in-fighting, and it’s because the idea of a multi-generational queer community is very new, from last century

so, here is the thing about rights:
there is a line for them, not a line at which they end
so they only mean something, when more demographics are included in having them
being able to assert for themselves, not spoken to or for, but with
representation and inclusion, acceptance not mere tolerance
recognized as existing, and getting to

I bantered Today

I went from Surrey through New Westminster over the Patullo, across to North Road Burnaby; where I had the Jimmy’s Cafe House Special Benny; which was unique, it had the english muffin, with a meaty deli slice, poached egg, crumbled bacon, red pepper cubes and mushroom slices under the pale hollandaise sauce.It also came with shredded hashbrowns.

From there, back over the illegally tolled Port Mann replacement bridge into Surrey; then to London Drugs, Save on Foods Pharmacy – A&W for a terrible root beer that I did not even finish the small of; back to SoF, then to London Drugs.

Which is where it happened that I bantered.

My Mom was paying for lotto tickets with $8.00 in twoonies, loonies and 4 quarters.

Canada a nation of change


The Male Manager was doing her transaction, and the Woman Clerk was chatting with my Mom. She started to count out the coins and then said it was easier to put it into his hand.

“Coins don’t go in waistbands” I joked.

The clerks eyes bulged open as the images went through her head.

The manager, an older average looking guy, took the unexpected in stride, smile/shrugged it off and took the coins.

My Mom, not having heard my gag, looked up in the awkward silence of the clerk not looking at the manager, trying to not laugh.

so, I added “Sorry for the sexual harassment in the workplace.”

at that point, both of them laughed.
