With the upcoming hiring of a new Calgary City Manager shortly, Mayor Nenshi
has been pressing the idea of Diversity Hiring, inferring the fact that the top managers are all male and all white. It is a most profoundly unwise decision to hire any position on the basis of a minority quota system
as it will inevitably result in a lowering of the standards for a job, or making any preferred group choice a
cause for discrediting. Below is the first installments of five chapters on:

ARTS PLAN REPORT
Reaching for the Moon and Breaking the Bank....
Deity's Help Replaced By Civic Perfectionism?
15th - Having Read Over the four documents to be presented to Council
for a Special Meeting on December 10th. 2013. a familiar theme emerged.
The scope of the Arts Plan far overreaches both the financial limits
and the practical mandate of what The City of Calgary can accomplish.
Following the poorly conceived,utopian goals of Imagine Calgary, the
Arts Plan continues with an unrealistic and ruinous Vision plan, that
if fully implemented, would drain all other City budgets of all resources.
For instance, Imagine Calgary is cited for this foundation gem. "Target
86: By 2036, 95 percent of Calgarians report that they have a range
of opportunities for the aesthetic enjoyment of nature, arts and culture."
The fact is, that many Calgarians now have very meager budgets for any kind of entertainment, due to the high taxation, slowed economy, mortgage payments, and constantly shrinking value of their money and investments.
Or take this gem that soars to heights unknown in a religious Millennial
Civic Kingdom: "Target 102: By 2036 100
per cent of Calgarians report that they feel respected and supported
in their pursuits of meaning, purpose and connectedness, and that they
extend respect and support to others who meet this need in ways different
from their own."
What kind of misguided earthly Messiah would write such a document as a foundation vision statement for a city. And what kind of people or politicians would fall for it?
So when the Calgary Arts Plan starts with goals like this, is it any wonder that the resulting
document, must be a no go zone?
Obviously, this Camelot of 2036 has no need of a police force, social services, or student loans. And apparently, it this Civic Shangri-La functions independent of any problems or disasters hitting the provincial, federal or international arenas.
So what are the specific weaknesses which call out for the rejection of this plan by the City Councilors in March 2014?
1. The Arts Plan aims for 100% per cent of citizens to patronize the Arts. As we know, sports is the focus for many who will experience only minimal enjoyment of the Arts. Overly Expansive Goal Setting cannot be financially costed out, nor can it be estimated what the participation will be, or the supposed return when the saturation and operational limits are reached.
2. The Arts Plan is an artificial inflation of Arts aspirants, which could swell the ranks of the mediocre, and hinder the progress of the brilliant. The reality is that most people's artistic talents will be expressed in private family forums, not the spotlighted stage and there's nothing wrong with that.
3. The Arts Plan is based on the illusion of everyone being a rising platform audience generating Star. This deception is also typical of 'professional' childhood sports in the hopes of a breakthrough that the parents themselves never achieved. Very wasteful and very disappointing for the majority, and sometimes a permanent turn off to any future involvement. The fact is, that exceptional artistic talent is somewhat of a rarity, and it is the exceptional that drives the audiences to attend in great numbers. Non exceptional talent, cannot compete with mass media multi-million dollar blockbusters.
4. The Arts Plan assumes that those not able to make a living by sold tickets, can always find a job in an ever increasing involvement in the educational system, in all of the subjects. Let's face it, the Arts are one area of life, and the other subjects which are more vital to the economy, need to have their own dedicated space.
5. The Arts Plan to be administered in it's present form, will require a massive increase in City staff and resources to implement it. All of this when the financial system teeters near the edge, and the baby boom generation is retiring in great numbers. When through over taxation, more and more Seniors lose their homes and savings, the inheritance base passed on to the younger generation, will evaporate at the very time when the worker per retireee ratio becomes unsustainable.
6. The Arts Plan is oblivious to the fact that some of the Arts, require a certain level of mental discipline to enjoy properly, and will therefore always have a limited audience in an age of shortened attention spans.
I do hope that the Councillors must realize, that even a large panel of enthusiaists, cannot replace the need for wisdom in the demands that are placed on the citizens who placed them into office.
Social 'Comfort Capital' of Nenshi & Redford - Posted Dec. 5th -2013
"Woe to them that call evil good, and good evil; that put darkness for light, and light for darkness; that put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter.. Which justify the wicked for reward and take away the righteousness of the righteous from him." Isaiah 5:20,23
"Broadmindedness, practiced without discretion, can force one into
the narrowest of liberties."
A constant inundation of lower common denominator
behaviors, what is allowed to be tolerated in public, has been found
in studies to change people's values away from what they in their hearts
once believed. Liberals don't make Cities Liberal. Cities tend to make
people Liberal, especially those who are not on active defense of their
traditional values. Just a few decades ago, this sort of activity in
public would have been unthinkable, and is a shocking abuse of a child's
natural innocence, something they can only lose once. The LCD's are
doubly reinforced when authority figures including contingent's from
the police, fire, and sports community are added into the mix.
This hiving sort of urban activity leads to the sort of statements expressed about inclusive mentalities, people begin to reflexively dismiss conservative ideas, policies or personalities - even mock or demonize them, without thinking of how our nation became successful in the first place.
This 'brave new world' of LCD's has predictable outcomes if past history is wisely read and understood.
"Martians who, arriving on Earth for the first time, encounter a Ford Mustang convertible.
Not having any idea what it is or its maker's intended use, the Martians mistakenly conclude
it must be a hot tub and proceed to fill it with water and bathe in it. And then when you
come along and tell them they're ruining this valuable car by their misuse of it, they become
angry and accuse you of attempting to deny them their rightful pleasure."
Without the understanding of our spiritual origin and destiny - of who we are and what
purpose our Maker intended for us - we can't possibly understand sex and its intended role
in our lives. Instead, all we have driving us are the desires, the physical and emotional
'needs," cravings, and compulsions we find welling up within us. ... Some desires are normal
and God-given. Other cravings are rooted in trauma and misperceptions. Still others
more darkly, are willful planned rebellions aimed at evil and harm.
Instead of looking to the wisdom of our Judeo-Christian ethical truths, and the inner
conscience that testifies to them, many of us rely on emotional feelings alone to guide us
through life. And lasting fufillment slips out of our grasp.

It was reported last week at Calgary City Hall that
Transit workers had a higher rate of sick days than other departments
and it was a concern due to the cost of replacement workers that are funded
from the benefits fund.
It is not surprising that those who encounter the public at close contact
would come down quicker with the colds and respiratory ailments their passengers are carrying.
Combine that with the frequent opening and closing of doors to the outside
cold air and multiple handrails touched on the buses and C-trains and you
have a formula for compromised immune systems.
It might be a cost effective move to have something like chewable orange flavored vitamin
C's available to all drivers, who could chew them 4 or 5 five times a day to keep
up their resistance to multiple exposures

Why is it that almost every City Hall media interview ends up
with a mass scrum around Naheed Nenshi, so much so
that it is his filter of the events that ends up overpowering any other perspective?
Has the local media forgotten the way balanced and interesting
news can be reported beyond their favorite hobby horses? How about highlighting more of the councilors or those in the City administration. He is but one of 15 votes on Council. Or is the mayor's perspective so close to the 'uber' media that they pull like magnets to platitudes that sound good to their ears and require little investigative work.
City Hall Reporter
It would do the current media a world of good to examine the way Ralph Klein did his City Hall reporting for CFCN in the 70's. Don Martin describes Klein's technique: "Klein rarely bothered with news conferences and usually dispensed with covering City Council's official reaction. He abhorred the premixed pabulum his profession was expected to dish out as civic affairs coverage.
... He hung out with the oddest cross-section of contacts an Calgary journalist ever had."

Swearing In Ceremony
at Calgary City Hall
- Monday October 28th, 2013
Hear Bishop Fred Henry's Prayer for the new Council -mp3
What Most People in the Audience Saw When Nenshi Swore Into Office.
The Koran is mostly hidden behind the Lectern.
Is the visual image just too disturbing or does it
remind people of a warning given in the New Testament?
Here is the side view with the Koran
Are the values from this book able to
maintain a Western Democracy?
The Book of Revelation, the last book of the
Bible has these solemn words as the last verses, which repeats
the warnings given in the Old Testament (Deut. 4:2 Proverbs 30:5,6).
No true Christian can take them lightly, and all
others are unwise to ignore them.
Rev. 22:18-21 - New International Version
"I warn everyone who hears the words of
the prophecy of this scroll: If anyone adds
anything to them, God will add to that person
the plagues described in this scroll. And if anyone
takes words away from this scroll of prophecy, God will
take away from that person any share in the tree
of life and in the Holy City, which are described
in this scroll. He who testifies to these things, says
'Yes I am coming soon.' Amen. Come, Lord Jesus.
The grace of the Lord Jesus be with God's people."
Lawyer Chima Nkemdrim, his chief of staff
and long-time friend, swore in Nenshi.
At least this time someone who by virtue of profession
is a Commissioner for Oaths, swore Nenshi in.
Three years ago in Oct. 2010, his sister Shaheen swore him in
when not being qualified to do so.
( Nenshi had back then been sworn in privately by the City Clerk earlier
in the day, outside of the time period of the Municipal Government Act. Two Oaths were
signed that day, both not within the requirements. See City Watch Page )
Having a family member swear in the mayor is not proper anyway. It is too closely
reflective of the nepotism that is so common in third world countries.
As it unfolded, the Mayor's mother put the chain of office on his neck.
So the official duties were all among family and a friend.
But the optics are still troubling in that a subordinate who works under
Nenshi in his office and a close friend, is the one who confers the authority
of the Mayor's Office upon his boss. For a major office such as
Calgary's Chief Elected Official, the Mayor, should that person not
be sworn in by a Provincial Judge who holds real authority
over the oversight of the municipal office?
Perhaps the Koran has a reason in Surah (Chapter) 3:100
100. O you who believe! If you obey a group of those who were given the
Scripture (Jews and Christians), they would (indeed) render you disbelievers
after you have believed!
And Surah 5:59-60 Reveals the insistence of adding and subtracting from Scripture and the belief of the fate of all the people of the Holy Bible who refuse to receive the Koran.
59. Say: "O people of the Scripture (Jews and Christians)! Do you criticize us for no other reason than that we believe in Allah, and in (the revelation) which has been sent down to us and in that which has been sent down before (us), and that most of you are Fasiqun [rebellious and disobedient (to Allah)]?"
60. Say (O Muhammad
to the people of the Scripture): "Shall I inform you of something
worse than that, regarding the recompense from Allah: those (Jews) who
incurred the Curse of Allah and His Wrath, those of whom (some) He transformed
into monkeys and swines, those who worshipped Taghut (false deities);
such are worse in rank (on the Day of Resurrection in the Hell-fire),
and far more astray from the Right Path (in the life of this world)."
Of Course Christians are grafted into the Jewish Root according
to the New Testament so this would also apply to them.
Is this the basis of social harmony and respect for a new four year term on City Council?
for Larry Heather meant in October 2013
** Free Enterprise

In light of the recent Islamic terrorist Attacks does it make sense for Calgary voters have endorsed a Mayor who has once again sworn into Office with his hand on the Koran? See the section on City Watch Page about the implications of what voters are endorsing. See Campaign Media for link to news on the late September Islamic attacks in Pakistan and Kenya & Local Call of Calgary Iman Syed to send the wrong Muslims home.
Of Course, equating criticism of a religion's failings with racial discrimination ( race is a God ordained and sacred thing by the way ) is an example of shoddy, illogical thinking. Both Christianity and Islam are multiracial faiths. But the consistent application of the written beliefs produce entirely different results as we see in the nightly news.
Faith values should never be treated as a' lifestyle accessory,' a mere matter of inner preference, but as a fundamental guide to action. But if the faith belief also involves a fundamental resignation to fate apart from human agency, as is found in Isalm, it can also be a guide to inaction on critical issues.
