Mental health Socialism

A Social philosophical look at honesty. Autistic Philosophy.

Ashton Deroy Writes: Honesty is a contextual value. This is something I maintain. Despite the fact that it has been viewed as a theory of unhealthy denial. Maybe there is an inch of truth to that. I am an autistic social philosopher who has barely hung on to their grips on reality, life & sanity.

On the other hand… Is it any more healthy to be a truth seeker? 

Imagine if you are the spouse of a cheating lover. Should you seek out proof of the infidelity and drive yourself mad in the process? Or simply make a decision to weigh your trust in your partner and act accordingly to that.  A lot of time what can be observed in marriages that lack trust turns in to the partner who has been faithful chasing after their spouse’s betrayal only to find out the betrayal was imaginary. What do we seek truly in our truths?

Imagine if you will that the truth is a river & a lie is a damn to that river. You also do not deal with scarcity because in this scenario you have plenty of water to drink from. Either the damn will break on its own time and reveal the truth to you. Or you will drink from your own water supply while respecting the boundary of the damn.

How honesty reveals the inherit ugliness in others?

Imagine for a second that humanity is filled with swine dressed as people. These people will say stuff such as “I’m just being honest.” As an excuse to hurt others or even manipulate them. Why do we think we value this? It hurts the civilized people & leaves the swine just fine because their kindness has left them in such a way that has dehumanized them. Whether we like it or not the civility we expect in society requires us to lie to some degree in order to preserve the dignity of others.

What swine reveal in moments of honesty?

We live among the under-educated swine and their honesty is not flattering in the slightest.  These are some listed examples that reveal the human swine that live among us outside the civilized Socialist and Progressive societies. Hopefully in seeing these we spot poor traits in ourselves. Then make corrections adequately in the goal of the common good.

They will live dirty – The swine in honesty reveal they have no respect for their environment. They will leave trash everywhere, use the bathroom wherever they choose & will make no consideration for germs or their surroundings or other people and animals that may need the environment. They do these things & scream “Freedom!” Thus highlighting our Libertarian Swine movement.

They are openly prejudice – Mostly seen in Xenophobia & Trans-phobia these days. However you see the bigotry in all walks of life. If you are prejudiced to people because of minor characteristics. Then you reveal that through your truth you reveal your swine side.

Sexual indiscretions – We live in a world where people who commit sexual acts of violence are not quite held accountable. I still don’t want to hear about it, even in the context of honesty! “You were more appealing in your human clothing Mr. Pig.”

They are just offensive – You may hear a swine laugh about something off color. Then go “So true, so true.” The truth & honesty are only weaponized when used to rob someone of their dignity. Doing this does not mean you practice any kind of civilized humor.

Honesty is your weapon – You use it for manipulation or to demean someone’s overall wellness. This is also the symptoms of being human swine. You think you can use honesty to alter the behaviors of others. However, honesty is always used in the wrong context when you use it to control someone and make them unhappy.

Honesty is a contextual value. If you are swine then it isn’t one of your valuable traits. You should not expect positive social awards for your honesty. You should expect public ridicule for it. Unfortunately moral Philosophy is no longer mainstream but it ought to be. Many of our approaches to life are now arbitrary and our values meaningless. I would much prefer the mechanisms of social civility to the arbitrary weaponized honesty.


Jango Property Management site plan

We will be exposing Jamie Macari for the Swine he has become moving forward. If we are to head towards civilized society we must punish the swine. Jamie Macari is 100% religious, sexist & ablest swine.  We will expose him and open him to ridicule.

Disappointment in Sara Reindel. 544 Victoria St, Kingston Ontario.

544 Victoria St, Kingston Ontario, K7L 4A2
Ashton Deroy writes:
Hello Sara Reindel / Jango Property Management, This is to you. However I have included witnesses Including Jamie Macari, my brother Kyle Deroy & my father Randy Deroy. 
I just want to express my feelings about this house which are completely valid & within reason to express as a matter of poor customer service & negligence! Let us start out as a matter of trust. I am not even sure you are real! I have never met you, we have never talked on the phone & everything you do is in Jamie’s best interests! Not the interest of your company, the tenants  or even your income. Not to mention the fact you don’t even give consideration to your legal obligations.
Secondly, I have had the pleasure of seeing some of your emails with ***** (Censored for individual protection)!. What is wrong with you? If you are Sara Reindel then I have reasonable belief to understand you are a woman. How dare you let a woman be mistreated so badly in a home you manage?! I am disgusted! I am appalled! There is no excuse for this! Violence even in the realm of harassment against women is a serious matter that you as a woman should have taken seriously. You should of stepped in personally to deal with it and make sure she was okay. 
Lastly I want you to think carefully about what you say next to me. I am prepared to stand by what I said and did 100%. Are you able to? People are reading everything in regards to this, including the harassment sheet Jamie wrote to me whining about my effects on his health. It was a classic attempt at table turning and I am too smart for this kind of game. There is 1 victim in this house! 1 VICTIM AND IT IS NEITHER OF THE MEN WHO USED TRAIN IN WRESTLING! (Meaning Jamie & I) 1 VICTIM IN THIS HOME AND WE CALL HER ***** (Censored for individual protection)
Do me a favor and commit yourself long and hard to some serious thought & reflection before you reply. I am deeply analytical, highly intelligent & very strategic. I am also reasonably upset about things have gone down. The last thing is consider everything on the record including in person conversations. You have no reason to think you can have any off record chats with me whatsoever. 
Signed

5 Years later… Dialogue on StarTek in Kingston Ontario.

Malicious intent

Ashton Deroy Writes: Even After 5 years later & a return to Kingston Ontario. I still have a bad taste in my mouth when people mention my ex-employer StarTek. I mean I don’t know why? They were so “perfect” to me.  Maybe it was the lack of schedule control, the fact they pay under the living wage or maybe it was just the fact that creatively speaking I would deal with their terrible customers all day & then the manager I had would chuck dog s*** at me!

It is worth exploring in a full-blown style essay. Why am I still upset with StarTek 5 years later? I guess you can say I almost never dealt with them properly. Maybe today helped though when I called the company’s Human Resources department & told them 5 years later, but I am still pissed. The first thing is the lack of schedule control. People have families & Social lives. Yet time after time StarTek unnecessarily cuts careers short because people are dealing with family issues, childcare issues or just mental health issues. Damn it StarTek, why should I not call you and tell you I am pissed?!

https://www.ontariolivingwage.ca/living_wage_by_region

The living wage for Kingston Ontario is $17.57 hourly. Not $15.50 you cheap pieces of s****! You represent T-Mobile and it is a seriously bad reflection on them that they can not pay their employees a living wage. Again this is adequate aggression coming from me. You have 0 right in the public’s eye to act like another corporate Tyrant! Pay your people a living wage & realize that it is not up for debate.

Creatively written: Lastly, why would I be happy about a place where I was bullied by customers then bullied by management? Like I said it is pretty much like I was being picked on by customers on the phone 10 hours a day. Then when I got off the phone…. My manager made sure my mouth was open wide so she could huck in dog s****! Yes, it is reasonable to be reviewed as an employee, but what happened to me was a systematic beat down.

To StarTek:

Kiss my a**! My friends were considering you for employment and I just wanted to share my true opinions. No, I do not think my friends should work for StarTek. I consider my movement an outside intervention on behalf of the workers of Kingston. Do better, I am not afraid to say you need to do better.

(613)-888-1958 is my telephone number. If you have a concern with my blog feel free to text me or call me. Yes, I indeed called StarTek’s human resources department today to say “5 years later & I am still pissed.” I think it needed to be said. I am still asked about StarTek and this act of civil disobedience was to say, “I have reasons to feel the way I do about StarTek.” This was a very upsetting experience for me.

I believe call centers starting back in 2015 beginning with StarTek played a role in my downfall to a road of drug addiction, self-harm and suicidal behavior.

Belleville Ontario Quinte West Socialism

I am committed to calling out Sexism, Transphobia & Racism.

Ashton Deroy Instagram.png

 

Ashton Deroy writes: Belleville Ontario & Quinte West has a massive problem with Sexism. This isn’t a fact I need to back with stats, because it is just innate common knowledge from within the community. Sexual harassment in the workplace isn’t so much a rarity here as it is a common occurrence from within the workplace. In my Sustainability proposal I did outline how Sexist behavior isn’t so much being addressed in the community. As much as it is being embraced as a regular part of the work culture in Hawkin’s Cheesies. However it is not an exclusive issue to this company.

Calling out unfair commercial practice.png

At Hinduja Global Services I witnessed my friend to be forced through arranged seating to be sat near a man who was not only a drug dealer! He was also trying to harass her for a pair of her panties. This is unacceptable! This should have never been allowed. Maybe if Hinduja Global Services in Belleville Ontario can’t commit to addressing sexism in the workplace they should lose the privilege to assign seating. 

I am now committed to calling out sexism. To start because this will be a radical shift for the culture of Bay of Quinte as well as Belleville Ontario. I am going to call out in the most radical fashion imaginable! I might be a pain in the neck about it, but it is going to happen. It is time to recognize this is a United Nations Sustainability commitment and I don’t consider changing sexist culture as a matter of free speech, I consider this a human rights issue! 

Not only sexism, but if I see Transphobia going forward. I am going to react! It is time Transgender people feel safer in our communities. Yet we continue to enforce culture of misgendering, back talking & bullying in our workplaces, charities & communities. If our municipal politicians are not going to address this. I will address these issues! I am seeing a lot of consistency with my opinions on the Federal level, but not provincially & not municipally & it is time for that to change.

 Commitment to call out racism. The reason I haven’t finished this blog is that I was still attending a college within Belleville Ontario that has a rather racist reputation. I am talking about Loyalist College. A place where there majority of people alienate our East Indian students. I am tired of aiding in environments where these potentially new Canadians feel less included & unwelcome. Personally anyone who comes to Canada to develop a skill & work is welcome in my books & I will no longer leave room for people to say otherwise. 

Racist Loyalist College

That picture is linked to a Google review link which widely associates Loyalist College with racism. It is something the college must work on if they are going to continue to be an attractive option for International students. 

This is a personal commitment I will continue to use in my educational, professional and leisure pursuits. I will be on social media & out about connecting with marginalized members of the community and talking to them about their concerns. Then I will come to this high traffic Independent Belleville website & I will start giving the real news of the people of progressing these problems. Through my tag research & website statistics, I have learned I have a presence in this community. This is a presence I fully intend to use for the better. 

Commitment on abortion: This will continue to be an political topic I support not reopening. I will strive to censor pro-abortion groups or defame people associated with these groups. This is a division I will not compromise on! It is women of my income level who require unrestricted access to these services. Not the wealthy moralistic controlling members of society who are oppressing in my class & whom I continue to loathe! 

Instagram Statement: Call out #Sexism -It is apart of our Sustainability pact with the United Nations. – #BayofQuinte & #BellevilleOntario can not continue #Sexist culture – It is time to change sexism & sexual harrassment in the workplace. Much like I saw working at #HawkinsCheesies , #hindujaglobalservices , #Spdata , #Concentrix

Sustainability Proposal Hawkin’s Cheezies.

Hawkin's Cheezies blog

Ashton Deroy writes: Maybe it took more time than I would of liked, but I finally got an assignment out of my Social Responsibility & Sustainability class that I am proud to put on my blog. This was graded 20/20. Partially this high quality work comes from finally getting on the same page as my Professor. However, partially this proposal contains things I had always wanted to talk about in regards to my experience in working for Hawkin’s Cheezies. Let me continue from here saying that all my blogs are posted as conversational pieces. This also just happens to be a portfolio piece. 

To request an edit please contact me at 647-850-6802. Thank you for helping in ensuring my quality. 


Introduction: 

Hawkin’s Cheezies is a Belleville born company that is in the business of manufacturing fast food Cheezie products. From my family, to just about anyone in Belleville. Hawkin’s Cheezies creates some of our town’s favorite treats. Hawkin’s Cheezies was founded in 1952 by W.T. Hawkins and Jim Marker. It is a locally owned company, that does not trade on a public stock exchange. The company has a revenue of $26.9M, and 175 employees hired through their human resources partner ManPower. 

Current sustainability efforts: 

The company outlines no Sustainability efforts for ecological sustainability or Social responsibility. The company meets the legal standards set by Canadian Labor laws & uses their own set of values for their corporate culture. In order to talk about the culture of this company I will use phrases the company they themselves use to talk about their workplace culture. This way you can get a deep personal look at what makes this company so unique and valuable to the community within Belleville Ontario. 

Company Culture 

Small & Medium Enterprise (SME) – Meaning the company earns within 10 million to 1 billion a year in revenue. The company also has under 500 employees. The company self-describes themselves as a Medium Enterprise with small business culture. This is referring to their individual relationship with employees & the way their team works like a family. 

Family time – This company recognizes Friday, Saturday & Sunday as family time. Therefore the company does not book employees to work on these days. Rather there is a culture of encouraging employees to spend time with their loved ones & rest up for work. This is what has made the job sustainable for years of employment for many of the employees & students. 

Lean Manufacturing – The company manufactures products to fulfil actual customer orders. If the company does have orders to fill, then they cut the amount of labor hours they utilize for manufacturing. They do not implement a level manufacturing strategy that requires a consistent output that don’t fulfil the needs of the customers. The company takes waste seriously in the sense where they don’t intend to produce more than they can sell. 

We care about worker success – This is not a cliche the company uses to boost their company profile. Hawin’s Cheesies puts in effort to ensure employees have long term relationships with the company & so that they grind out their skills 

Sustainability audits – The company has no UN pacts & no sustainability goals. There is no process of internal or external audits in regards to sustainability. Just the legal audits associated with running a safe factory. They do tag out lock out procedures. They count days without workplace injuries, which was at 100 days communicated internally last I heard. 

Willard’s 5 stage journey

  1. Pre-Compliance – The company meets the legal standards required for food manufacturing set by the province & municipality. 
  2. Regulatory enforcement – This company meets the bare minimum requirements as legally required. They pay employees minimum wage, they get the Provincial standard for sick days. They handle their garbage disposal legally with the use of a commercial dump. They also transport their recyclable waste to a recycling plant at the end of operation days. 
  3. Beyond compliance – This company is not at Beyond compliance. 
  4. Integrated strategy – There is no integrated strategy for sustainability. 
  5. Purpose & Passion – “We believe that people, our managers, our permanent staff, our temporaries and our students represent the brick and mortar of our company. It is through people producing the finest quality product available, we will continue to forge our future. We will always recognize that our customers are the vital key to our future. We are obligated to our customers to deliver the finest and we have promised to do so in full measure.” Hawkins Cheezies mission statement. 

Hawkin’s cheesies is a work in progress as far as sustainability goes. Even for a Small & medium enterprise, there is a lot more Hawkins Cheezies could be doing for the efforts of Sustainability. This document summarizes personally conducted research as well as a bit about the culture. This company is not an early adopter for sustainability, it is not even in the early or late majority. This company is a Sustainability laggard.

Due to the fact the company is a laggard in switching to sustainable models of business. That means there are large quantity of changes that would need to be made in order to bring this company up to a modern compliance for a sustainable business. The most practical place to start for implementing sustainable practice is to eliminate plastic waste from production. I am talking about replacing the iconic plastic Hawkins Cheezies bags, with a sustainable product packaging. Secondly I would try to dedicate 25 working hours to humanitarian causes & lastly I would recommend calling out sexist language in the workplace.  

The biggest issue in all the sustainability problems related to Hawkin’s Cheezies is by far the plastic bags. I would estimate the factory disposed of 180 gallons of defective plastic product bags a day. Then besides that there are the bags being bought by commercial and residential customers.  There are reusable snack bags that could be just as effective for the company & could be re-used by the customers long after purchase. Use of these bags could both eliminate waste & replace a considerably resource wasting production process.

The company could also work to dedicate 25 hours a year to humanitarian causes. Right now Belleville Ontario needs help. The city has a growing percentage of homeless people, people suffering from hard to treat health conditions & elderly with lack of access to care. Any number of these causes could be taken on by Hawkin’s Cheezies and create a positive difference in the city of Belleville Ontario that would be felt in a massive way. 

The last part I am ashamed to admit, but it is true. There is a major problem with sexism in the workplace at Hawkin’s Cheezies. The company culture could be changed in a way that would work to call that kind of behavior out. For example, a colleague of mine while I was there was sexually harassed by one of our barrel lifting employees. This problem is a worthy problem for their company to tackle as it does not just affect the interpersonal nature of employee relationships though. At Hawkin’s Cheezies they did not hire female barrel lifters simply because it was the company’s attitude that women are not strong enough to repeat the process of lifting 50 pound barrels for repeat execution. I am from a family where a lot of female relatives happen to serve in the forces, where they do this kind of lifting all the time. I think it is a massive waste of potential talent to dismiss women in their ability to lift heavy objects. Plus the process of doing this can definitely make a case for workplace sexism. 

Honestly it is not that surprising that a Small & Medium sized Enterprise within the small town of Belleville is not beyond Regulatory compliance in Sustainability policies. It is a cliche about the culture of these businesses in small towns. However the company has an opportunity to make massive changes that can have positive effects within the community. I think if they switched to a reusable snack bag it would save them a ton of money & eliminate waste with terrible ecological effects. Hawkin’s Cheezies could also dedicate 25 hours of manpower a year to humanitarian causes that the company feels are important to their culture. Hawkin’s Cheezies should start to call out sexist behavior both in the workplace & around the community. It is time to make Belleville a more pleasant place for people of all genders and sexes to live.

Tyendinaga & Marijuana safe shop index. Also the Marijuana Blacklist.

Tyendinaga & Marijuana safe shop index

Ashton Deroy Writes: This index is for my tribe of stoners to let them know about safe & unsafe cannabis purchasing locations. Click my name to check out my Facebook page. Please like and Subscribe for the update. This is my Tyendinaga & Marijuana safe shop index. Thank you for clicking on to my website. Just a reminder that marijuana from the reservation is considered purchasing illegal cannabis. I very much recommend purchasing legal containers to store your illegal cannabis.  

The reason for creating this safe shop index is so that family & friends have access to information on acquiring marijuana safely from different available resources. 

Oasis

My step Brother Matt recommended Green Grass Oasis. While I wouldn’t say much on the Res comes close to medicinal quality. Green Grass Oasis comes pretty close. I have been able to successfully use their THC and CBD products when in need. 

OGD

Organic Green Dispensary was recommended by my uncle. Name is omitted. They gave us free joints on 4/20 and they have the best selection of edible products in Tyendinaga. 

Better Buds.jpg

Better Buds is recommended by a friend Ryan. He says he likes the variety. Thank you Ryan for letting other people know the safe places to shop on the Res. I am sure the readers and close social circle will appreciate this information.

Ontario Cannabis Store

No shame in buying legal!

I understand people in my stoner tribe might have a few objections to buying legal Marijuana. However, the OCS is used by healthcare providers in the tribe, colleagues & I used it myself to buy Tangerine Dream. That is a high-quality Cannabis Cup 2010 winning strain. Also the quality is higher & the taste is better for those of us stoners who love a clean marijuana strain for a mid-afternoon high tea time.

 

Spark Medical Cannabis

Do you know the pros of medical cannabis? 

  1. Tax Deductible as a medical expense
  2. Social stigma is often removed as a medical user who consulted with healthcare providers. 
  3. You can travel anywhere in Canada with medical cannabis. 

“However, the Canada Revenue Agency (CRA) allows for medical cannabis to be claimed as a “medical expense” deduction on your federal income taxes, the same way you can claim the cost of hearing aids, insulin, or a wheelchair. Here’s how it works.” RateHub, 2019

Black List

Legacy 420

Legacy 420 Is blacklisted. Unnamed sources from my stoner tribe put out rumors that range from product tampering to the store being gang-affiliated. It is a shame, they had these cool radio ads I used to hear from Rock 107. My favorite Quinte West radio station. 

Pot Shoppe

The Pot Shoppe is now blacklisted due to the fact a cashier attempted to give my roommate improper change to pocket a lot of extra cash. We are talking they used to do big business with the shop. Then they decided to blacklist them because of one attempt at an unethical behavior. The shop also runs a radio station with music I am sure they do not have the rights to. I am not sure how copyright law is executed on Tyendinaga but I imagine if caught they could land themselves in some hot water! 

Marijuana news

Brock University’s Dan Malleck, an expert in drug and alcohol regulation, says the government “should have created a mechanism that allowed illegal producers to move quickly into the legal producing system.” Read more on Toronto SUN
