Sunday Afternoon, 4pm local time
~ SOMETIME Blogger NScott & his Missus, Heavy Duty Judy, are here helping with sorting the dead books from the living, and the possibly resurrectable ones via the freezer. Meantime, the Binklings are sorting the garbage, collecting DVDs, picking out treasures.. before the basement gets put in storage & renovation. All is soggy.. many dead books.
True friends are worth more than gold, yea more than much fine gold.
BINKS GETS FLOODED BASEMENT
~ SO THANKS to AlGore’s Global Warming (3 chilly feet of which surround the Bink’s Suburban Hideout), our semi-finished basement flooded last evening, to the tune of 7-8 chilly inches of ice water.. everwhere.
Teh Binks being a super semi-genius, I went outside & built a snow-dam to slow the water, whilst the Binklings rescued books, electronics, art & photos, and other oddments inside.
I then called the local fire department, who arrived with pumps, shovels, sandbags– they bunkered the basement doorwell, drained it, shovelled a path to draw water from the 2-foot slush-pool beside the house, then pumped the lawn & the basement down to small puddles. Mrs. Binks had to coordinate everything after the local FD arrived, because I’d done a geezer on the shovelling, and was in bed trying to breathe and not expire and stuff.
SomeBody was looking after us, however: Teh Binklings were supposed to be sleeping over at a friend’s house last night, but it was cancelled– had they not been downstairs, we’d have woken up to 3-4 feet of icewater, with total losses of the Binks blogging centre, all the books, all our storage, Christmas ornaments, everything downstairs.. shudder.
Those of you familiar with domestic floodiness know how fun even 7-8 inches of water can be amongst your belongings. 2 months of rebuild lie ahead, but the real losses are the books, especially the older out of print or family heirloom volumes: so far, 25-30 new and old losses, but another 8 boxes await soggy unpacking, and probably 1/2 head to the garbage.*
The insurance will cover some of the loss, but anyone interested in sending along replacement books via Amazon.com may contact me [ binks dot webelf at gmail dot com ]; and know my grateful thanks for and support & encouragement in this stressful time.
*I will be trying this LifeHacker trick, but have no idea if it works.
Got Locked Out Of My Own Blog Again Last Night
UPDATE TEH 2NTH: Thanks to all you generous pre-dead minion donors, we now have enough via PayPal & cheque for THREE years of self-hosted Binks; plus offers of webspace (thanks Ken, Mitch), donated nerd-help to set up the new digs, and all sorts of good suggestions on decent ISPs which won’t shut me down. Thanks from the bottom sub-cockles of my elfly heart, you guys & gals. In response, I’ll work to have shorter but more frequent postings, and ever more of the Binks-stuff you love. Stay tuned for developments!! Oh, and there’s even weirdly good news about the guy who’s been after me, MAD, Blazing, SDA, MitchieVille, Jay Currie.. more later today (this is a sleepless in Elfville posting)….
UPDATE: Button coming: PayPal addy = firstname.lastname@example.org… plus a volunteer has offered to help me migrate the thing to the new server & set things up.
~ SO TEH SHAIDLE has been nudging me towards getting a self-hosted WordPress blog, just so the pinheaded mini-fascist “support staff” prompted by online censors can’t lock me outta here again.
Any of you IT weenies wanna help migrate this thing?
Any of you blog-readers wanna cough up towards my monthly hosting fees? It will cost a measly $300 for two years.
binks [dot] webelf [at] gmail [dot] com
Thanks for releasing my blog.
I will review my comments in a timely manner in the next 24 hours– and remove all regarding A*** R*** (my presumed repeat-complainant/ stalker) except for the e-mail sent directly to me by A*** R*** in which he included his own e-mail address, since he directly published that himself (which implies permission to publish by any fair interpretation of the facts).
You folks really need to stop playing the unfair mother in his “Mommeee! He breathed on me!” game, which has caused me days of wasted time & irritation. Can’t you flag his name as a serial frivolous complainant or something?
Seriously– I’m being reasonable here, and have complied with every request you’ve made thusfar under your TOS.

~ TEH BINKS IS a narrow-minded humourless conservative Christian white male elf, pro-life, anti-Jihad, non-libertarian, willing to see both sides of an argument until the argument is reasonably settled. He generally opposes weasel-words, blind leftardism, elitist bullying, injustice, ranting, and feckless cowardice. He favours piquant and saucy ways of putting things, sometimes mocking his targets (and himself), but only when deserved, in his view. Read the rest of this entry »
.. but in a good-for-Canada and good-for-free-speech kinda way.
That’s why after sending a few coffees to our troops via Kaffir Kanuck, you will go overt to Teh Shaidle’s page and read:
.. and then donate to her legal defence fund, to help beat down Richard Warman and his malicious lawfare, and continue to uphold free speech in this good land of Canada against the petty bureaucrats, bottom-feeders, and people like Warman and Lynch and Ontarian human rights Ubergauleiter Barb Hall and all the rest.
Because you get it, and because I asked nicely– and because it’s the right thing to do.

A New Blog
~ ITEM: Lightbulbs Of Evil
~ ITEM: ‘Lightbulbs of Evil’: A new must-read blog by Teh Binks
~ IT’S A NEW BLOG– Lightbulbs Of Evil, on my recent journey into the reality of those damnable Compact Fluorescent Bulbs, and the reality behind the hype and the eco-boosting behind the new bulbs. Check it out, comment, pass the word, and learn up. ~
~ AS WE’VE MENTIONED BEFORE, we’re not big fans of sometime white supremacist Marc Lemire, but we will fight for his right to say wrong-headed things. This just in:
“I have determined that Mr. Lemire contravened s. 13 of the Act in only one of the instances alleged by Mr. Warman, namely the AIDS Secrets article. However, I have also concluded that s. 13(1) in conjunction with ss. 54(1) and (1.1) are inconsistent with s. 2(b) of the Charter, which guarantees the freedom of thought, belief, opinion and expression. The restriction imposed by these provisions is not a reasonable limit within the meaning of s. 1 of the Charter. Since a formal declaration of invalidity is not a remedy available to the Tribunal (see Cuddy Chicks Ltd. V. Ontario (Labour Relations Board),  2 S.C.R. 5), I will simply refuse to apply these provisions for the purposes of the complaint against Mr. Lemire and I will not issue any remedial order against him (see Nova Scotia (Workers’ Compensation Board) v. Martin, 2003 SCC 54 at paras. 26-7).”
So– Section 13 of the HRC legislation is inconsistent with the Canadian Charter. Good news. Hurray for this judge. ~
~ ITEM: Raising boys for fun and profit
~ ITEM: Ban of classic novel at Mississauga school is principal’s perogative
~ ITEM: Reason 5,985,900 why I keep my kids out of public schools
~ ITEM: Malkin Dare: School choice for me, but not for thee
~ EXCEPT FOR GRADE 5, and then high school & above, I was a poor student. In grade seven, I was even tested for retardation. Turns out I was near the top of the class in IQ.
So when I see experts try to medicalize or medicate kids (usually boys) for being rambunctious, I get irritable.
(1) Modern school is touchy-feely, and designed for girls, or quiet, compliant boys.
(2) Many kids are raised by TV, DVD, and X-Box. Short attention-spans-r-us.
(3) Many children in Western society come from divorced or step-families, and day-care/ baby-sitting in young childhood. All of these can create emotional distress, lack of attachment, and personality problems.
(3) Modern schools teach politically correct pablum, pro-gay, pro-recycling, pro-touchy-feely psycho-babble, and a lot of lowest-common denominator stuff. My own boys find it tiresome, lame, and that they are not supposed to question it.
Thus, psychologizing or prescribing Ritalin to try and address deep foundational problems in the lives of children mask lives shaped by adult choices we don’t care to question. Modern schools are the result of ‘child-centred’ fact-lite expert theories, most of which have lead to a drop in learning, challenge, and achievement. Kids are a lot of work, and electronics are an easy opiate. Marrying the right person for the right reasons, and raising your kids yourselves undercuts ideas of women’s autonomy, and our impatient desire for comfortable lifestyles. All of these factors have real-life effects on children, whether we like the consequences of our choices, or not.
Finally, boys are naturally more energetic, go-go, award-oriented & competitive, and aggressive. To the modern mind, that’s ‘testosterone poisoning’– to the real world, it’s just the glory of male human nature versus female human nature, and it’s not merely a social construct, despite the yawpings of Marxist intellectuals and wymyn theorists.
That’s my thoughts on the matter. ~
~ THE KENNEDY ‘FUNERAL’– As a clergyman who’s worked in several parishes, I blame modern Roman Catholic and Anglican conduct for gawd-awful marriages and funeral customs and ugly/ lame/ juvenile worship services. Funerals never recovered from the Princess Diana/ Elton John debacle.
Too often, people bring bad ideas and TV-based worship-notions to church. Doglike, some people imagine they must mark it as their own for it to be real; so the nearly identical ‘new ideas’ of weddings, or the notion that everyone should be tearfully eulogized for all their good points at funerals.
Mind you, that’s not a sermon, nor Christian, nor spiritually healthy.
So when I hear of the Kennedy-worship at his so-called funeral mass, with schmaltzy sentimentality, a socialist speech in place of a eulogy, and then endless eulogies on top of it– with no mention of heaven-hell, judgement, mortality, sin, the cross & resurrection of Jesus, or even how in a life like Kennedy’s, God’s love and power is still operative despite sin and the temptations of power? It’s a failure of nerve and imagination, and a kow-towing to worldly power which is the temptation of all of us, but should be different in the life of the Church.
The reality is that rich and powerful and influential people are accountable before God for their opportunities, used or squandered. Those to whom much is given, much is expected, says Jesus. To not tell a church full of the important such plan spiritual truths? And that God’s love is still greater than our sins and failings? Why, that’s a terrible, terrible waste. ~
Zombie Theories Wreaking Havoc
~ DESPITE THE BEST EFFORTS of Western radicals, the USSR is dead.
However, the theories and subversive efforts of that evil empire continue to influence Western Society, where originally they were intended to undermine and weaken nations, and make them more amenable to Soviet control, or overthrow.
Zombie-like, various forms of Marxist ‘critical theory’ has shambled on to poison academia, the churches, society, and politics. If your beliefs don’t measure up to the radical standard, you are politically incorrect. Your thoughts don’t belong, are ruled out of court. You are an infidel, standing in the way of variously imagined forms of secular salvation/ utopia.
That’s why leftists always are so patronizing and get so mad with the incorrect. ~

~ DEAR JENNIFER– I’ll blog much more on this next posting, but word from Teh Blazing Catbarf is that Canada’s tax-funded HRC imperial chiefette Ms. J. Lynch is keeping a list of bloggers and their comments about her. 1200, so far. The CHRC likes Free Mark Steyn/ Free Canuckistan because we have a handy link round-up every 2-3 days for their convenience in tracking down pre-crimes and thought-offenders. Hi Jenn! Oops.. did I just blog about her & the CHRC again? Darn it! ~
