I was a guest on Sarah Westall’s Business Game Changers show.
From the show description:
“Business Game Changers – Is it Time for a new Philosophy regarding Currencies and Economics?
With the problems the world is facing over destructive “currency wars” and the continual debt that governments are racking up, is it time for a new way of doing things? My guest, Jason Erb, thinks it is. He explains his philosophy regarding debt, currencies, and how governments, bankers, and economists have led us to a ridiculous state of using our precious tax resources to pay foreign bank owners interest instead of repairing our infrastructure or giving tax money back to the people so they can buy food, medicine, or other necessities.”

On the July 4, 2015 episode of Exposing Faux Capitalism, I discussed the following issues:
Small AIDS fraudster gets jail and fine while the original big AIDS fraudster, Dr. Robert Gallo, continues to get millions in grants, changing accents to pander to a different audience, cultural genocide no occasion to clap and cheer, Canada’s spy agency allegedly hacked again, U.S. Supreme Court hypocrisy, and, yes, Doctor Snuggles.

I understand the context of their cheering and clapping when Canada’s Truth and Reconciliation Commissioner said that Canada had participated in a period of “cultural genocide” — not in support of the purported government program of cultural genocide against Native Canadians, as it was termed to have taken place in Canada from the period of 1867 (its founding) to 1969 — but it betrays the radical and warped agenda of those non-Native Radical Leftist audience members who were hoping for such strong language in order to fuel their radical social and historical revisionist agenda on Canadians.

From the description of the May 27, 2015 show posted on TVO’s The Agenda with Steve Paikin’s YouTube channel:
“Perry Bellegarde was elected National Chief of the Assembly of First Nations in December 2014. Nearly half a year into his term, The Agenda checks in to see what issues he’s prioritized and what progress he’s made on longstanding concerns such as land claims, education and missing and murdered aboriginal women and girls.“
Five minutes into the interview, I noticed his accent markedly change, from speaking to an audience of Canadians (almost all non-Native), to his Native audience.
So much for the notion of a departure from business as usual for a Native leader, in acting differently than a typical politician with regard to appealing to his particular audience.
He followed in the footsteps of President Obama and Hillary Clinton, who adopted a foreign accent specifically to appeal to their audience.
I understand the idea of appealing to one’s audience, but unless you’re immigrating to another nation or speaking a completely different language, for me, it’s a type of deception to markedly change your accent from one audience to the next, just to appeal to them. When I attended the 2009 Rethinking AIDS Conference in Oakland, California, I remember an American attendee point out my Canadian accent, and I realize that he was somewhat making fun of it for its distinctiveness and stereotypical Canadianness, but for me it is a symbol of my personal identity, and I don’t intend to change it just to curry better favour with an audience whose accents may be significantly different than mine.
