CBC Content Disabled: February 26 and 27, 2016

Before we get down to business, I’m pleased to say I’m using a new screen capture utility called “Greenshot.” It is user-supported public domain supported software that comes highly rated by PC World Magazine. It is exceptionally easy to use. Simply press the “Print Screen” (or equivalent) button, drag the cursor around the area you want to capture, and let go. That’s all there is to it. This is a unpaid. unsolicited testimonial. It is much cleaner, easier and neater than my clumsy cellphone screen captures. And yes, I will make a modest donation in appreciation for Greenshot‘s efforts.

Kevin O’Leary has been called the Canadian Donald Trump (although I think The Donald has more money than Kevin. And Donald has more hair. At least in public). O’Leary has been musing about running for the leadership of the Conservative Party of Canada. More recently, he has also been musing about running for the Liberal leadership. The latter is a more curious choice as it is current occupied by Justin Trudeau, the Prime Minister.

For the umteenth time, I am starting off this post by pointing out the blatant partisan censorship on the part of CBC and its ICUC “moderators.” But repeating the charge doesn’t change the offensive nature of their conduct. In one case, merely posting, “Yes, please!” in reply to a comment saying, “No thanks” was “disabled.”

A subsequent comment pointing out the censorship of my “Yes, please!” which also pointed out this humble blog is the number two link on Google (just under CBC itself) when searching “CBC content disabled” was similarly killed. But thank you, anyway, to everyone who has typed in that particular search term and landed on LettersToTheBeast.


This is by no means a professional undertaking. I am a working-class stiff. I prefer to remain anonymous so I don’t end up in prison for thinking bad thoughts like Arthur Topham.

All right. Let’s get to work…

(February 27, 2016) I replied to a comment yesterday on a similar topic re Kevin O’Leary. The comment I replied to said, No thanks.” Mine said merely, “Yes please!” Content disabled. You know, it really doesn’t get any more blatant than that. Of course every time I say that, the “moderators” take it as a personal challenge. That’s okay, though. I will add it to my “CBC Content Disabled (Google) collection.”
Recession: Your neighbor loses their job. Depression: You lose your job. Revolution: The government loses their job! —Michael Rivero, www.WhatReallyHappened.com

And speaking of unpaid, unsolicited advertising, I have recently started adding material from the on-line Cafe Press store on Michael Rivero’s http://www.WhatReallyHappened.com. These are not just bumper stickers. They come in the form of t-shirts, ball caps, magnets, yard signs, tote bags and even teddy bears. The teddy bear wearing the “I (HATE) D.C. shirt is my personal favourite. Why not click on the image, pick out your favourite slogan and let Mike make a couple of Federal Reservre Accounting Unit Dollars along the way? And maybe drop a couple of dollars iinto Mike’s PayPal account, too?

As for the ad WordPress inserts at the bottom of this post, I am too cheap to pay the extra hundred bucks or so per year for an ad-free site. Please click on the WRH “ad” I have created. Seriously, you’ll end up doing a lot more good. Thank you.
