    READ THE NEWSLETTER: It Begins: Canadian Gov Rolls Out Points To Reward Good Citizens : The Corbett Report

    Yes, the Canadian government has rolled out an app that gives you points for eating well and exercising and taking quizzes about the flu shot and other healthy activities! And everyone seems totally fine with this. Welcome to the future, everyone, because the totalitarian states of tomorrow will be more carrot then stick, and we will all be pigeons in a virtual Skinner box. What could go wrong?

    Yeah you missed it because you weren't on the right 'wave length'. This is only for people who want to be 'winners'. I mean really, If you don't play how can you get the carrot? You want a carrot don't you? No? Well then lets just make more commercials advertising carrots until you DO want them. That aught to fetch just the right kind of response that's needed.

    Lets see how long it takes those people to realize that the money that is paying for all of these rewards is coming out of their own pockets. Grrr. Something about this program makes me very angry. I don't think it is the program itself. It is corrupt as everything that's made by politicians is corrupt. What bothers me is the mentality of the people being interviewed and the news people. How far south have things gone that they could find many people to endorse slavery as well as put it right on the news in everyones face with out any fear of reprisal.

    People truly are sheep to be led around by the nose. This works because brainwashing on a massive scale seems to work well.

    I decided a while back when my old armor plated flip phone finally died that it would be my last phone. I have now been without a phone for a hair over 6 weeks and don't miss it at all.
