Hey guys, let’s start being practical, and let’s start being moral. I am Ashton Deroy I graduated from Loyalist College. I have a Business Diploma and a Diploma in Advertising and Marketing Communications. Here is some Capitalist Sales Logic I won’t conform to for ethical reasons.
You can replace a quality competitor product with an inferior product by way of Sales & Marketing – This is not Utilitarian, practical, or even generally reasonable. That is why I had trouble selling Shaw Cable products in Telemarketing. In areas, our competitors had genuinely better products and we were outdated. Everything from the telemarketing outward was outdated in Shaw Cable comparable to Telus in certain areas of Canada around 2016.
You should never take a handout – Every handout is reduced to Socialism in the brain of a Capitalist. As a Liberal Socialist, I argue that you use the best system for the situation to ensure the health & well being of people. It felt surreal listening to a guy who buys and sells apartment buildings talk about how he will fight the government and shame everyone who is poor. Rather than encourage resiliency and morality. Something that would make good content and no one would blame him for.
Always bidding for the cheaper solution – Never looking at issues deeper than a bottom line. I am not afraid to talk about in a job setting that if a call center seating layout is resulting in sexual harassment of an employee. Then I believe in 100% modifying the seating arrangement. That is just common sense. You know what? We had one plan for the layout today and now we have to modify that plan. To: Capitalists & Communists, “Absolute efficiency is an insane and indignant unachievable concept.” Communities have more than 1 bottom line.
Hey guys, so I have been hearing about the benefits of Content scheduling as well as Hootesuite since my first year of college ever. I personally am not thrilled about the standardization of the practice from a U/X experience. Where we think we’ve found efficiency as Marketers? We may of actually just found lamely executed shortcuts.
I am an anti-Marketer but a firm believer in interpersonal sales & service.
Here are the problems with trying to use the standardized approach to content creation and content promotion:
Lost in the crowd of Notifications – I Subscribe to a lot of content creators on YouTube. Around 11:00a.m. Thursday the 14th of May. My phone was lit up with notifications over uploads of scheduled posts. Creatively speaking, It sends the user in 100 different YouTube directions with no focus. Mostly I end up clearing my notifications because it comes at me like hot spam.
It makes the content seem meaningless – Personal curation of content is an underrated concept. This blog is doing it’s best because we manage personal relationships with our readers, clients & stakeholders.
The same failure of TV is a failure of the web – Standardized scheduling for content will be the sure way to become ignored as overly corporate. I personally prefer a dignified marketing & sales approach with engaging and interpersonal content management strategies. A lot of the time when writing a blog I ask myself. What do my readers care about? Radio hosts use the same logic for engaging radio shows. What do our listeners care about? How can we meet them where they are. Rather than make communication convenient for us the content creator.

Ashton Deroy Writes: (This is a conversational blog believed to be true by the writer. This is not intended to harm those involved. Rather the intention is to warn of unstable housing rental practices in Kingston Ontario. I would like this blog to be the medium that announces an unstable environment. For the purposes of this blog I use a fake name for Wren as we had 0 contracts. Since it is a fake name it could almost be like I was talking about a fake person… I wish…)
I need to issue a final statement with the intention of dissolving a certain solidarity project I was going to be apart of. For the purposes of this article, I will use a fake name rather than the actual first name which I did acquire. I will also avoid putting this person in the hot seat. She may be of a protected status. She also may not be…
Previously referred to as “disabled female tenant”. This post is meant to address Wren. (I have always wanted to point out a Wren is a bird lol) What happened here? I’ve just noticed she can lean into repetitive neurotic behavior and when I attempted to finally say something… She said, “Leave me alone!”
First of all Wren, I stand by what I said. You fixate on “Qualified professionals” bordering on the neurotic. In fact, I’d say that you dwelled on it so often that it seems like you dysfunctionally stopped living your life. I know you have been through something difficult that I won’t dignify even sharing with my readers. However, it doesn’t justify a bias to authority to an obsessive degree. You have to get along with your friends, the people you live with and you have to on a larger scale cooperate with those within your community (Not exclusive to “Qualified professionals”) Authority Bias, click here to learn more.
Okay, so I always kept a level head while I knew her. I had thought “Okay she is qwerky but she is disabled also.” You see her quickly going from an attempt to get my attention to diverting the topic altogether. What does this mean? Well for you truth seekers who utilize the Socratic method. I asked questions she diverted them. The truth would objectively lay within the pattern of the conversation. This is unusual and I would argue dishonest. The most practical thing I can think of is her wanting my attention for some reason. At this time I am in self-isolation and not rushing out to see her when she asks.
The problem is: She already burned my bridge. I was keeping in touch with her to ask stuff like should we set up a website to warn people about this rental? When you leave can I help you file a Landlord-Tenant board claim? I also worry she may have fed me misinformation and this boundary was set up so that I could not expose the misinformation.
Scenarios I’ve considered (not proven true, but pure speculation for your attention):
Wren might be somehow involved with how that house operates. As crazy of an idea that seems. Maybe she obnoxiously overshares to chase people out. That way Jamie Macari pockets rental deposits.
Wren might have psychosis. I mean this with no malicious intent. One of my sisters has it and it is serious. It would mean that some of what she said to me… She didn’t have the mental capacity to make those actual claims.
Wren could be making up stuff for attention & even pity.
Out of all of the possible scenarios the bottom 2 I consider the most likely.
Unfortunately because of the text message on April 3rd 2020. I have to go say this. I have to say I am a gay male with autism who has never had sex with a cisgender woman as of 2020-04-17. I have mostly been attracted to guys since I was 13-14 years old. I have to come out and say she might make up stuff about me in order to gain Social attention. Sadly because a number of times I caught Wren lying to me outright. I broke April 3rd 2020 I can’t just resume action on the logic “You said leave me alone. I am going to go now and not saying anything on the record.” No no… You already lied about me and I am quite upset and concerned as a result.
I can’t take this post down. Due to the insane nature of the interpersonal relationships and social interactions at 544 Victoria Street Kingston Ontario. I have every reason to believe as a public person I am safer to engage my audience with this finale post.
Also what I said? It was not out of line. You have an authority bias that is quite neurotic. You can’t fix your situation effectively and efficiently the way you go about it. Finally, yes you annoyed me. The problem is… When you were annoying me? Morally the right thing to do was to be patient and understanding. Wren would often repeat “Now that I can talk to qualified people after never haven being allowed to because I wasn’t considered a person.” Referring to a presumably difficult past. She made me feel overwhelmed. Quite frankly I was worried she was going to either burn out and explode metaphorically. Or I was worried she was going to get herself kicked out and become homeless by not only insisting on living in the house, but also choosing to do it in a way that was only on her terms. (That not being the custom for cooperative housing. Even now I have to live in a way where my roommates can tolerate me.)
That moral obligation I felt to you ended when you made things up about me and during other lies I caught you in that I believe harmed me.
To: Possible authorities
No this is not going down off of my site. As far as I am concerned my dealings with Kingston Police have been unsatisfactory in resolving this issue. For all I know it could continue to put low-income renters in Kingston Ontario in danger. I keep asking myself, “What would you of liked to know before moving in to the home?” Whatever the answer to that is it needs to be considered.
What I would like to know about this place if I was a renter?
) They ban overnight guests – This forces a bit too much intimacy between the tenants.
) They won’t leave each other alone – I felt many times as though I was separating children from fighting. Prior to moving in Jamie said this would be a more adult living situation than I was used to. I would later state and I quote “You guys are much more childish than anybody I lived within College housing.”
) It is an unstable collective living arrangement – Jamie Macari is said to have Mercury poisoning affecting his mental health status. Wren has undisclosed issues which I was allowed to be subjected to but not allowed to understand in direct ways.
They overshare – To the point where household hangouts and meetings felt like therapy sessions. I only have a Community College background and many times I was the smartest person there.
They are not proactive about separating & getting healthy – Despite the fact this housing arrangement is very unhealthy and I suspect will remain unhealthy. Wren isn’t in a hurry to leave & no one in her network of “qualified professionals” is in a hurry to get her anywhere. It will take attrition or severe intervention to break the dysfunction in this house.
You probably won’t get your money back if they rent out after you leave- I lost a lot of money & more importantly my time living in this place. Writing these Blog posts is kind of a gift to myself to make sure I have something in exchange for all of the money I lost. (I know Wren is possibly not involved in that.) However, I have every right to speak with alarm about her impacts on the environment.
Weird religious elements – I have overheard loud religious arguments in that house. It seems Jamie Macari is devoted to whatever he practices & eventually he will make you aware of it and it will be your problem. An ex Wrestler who knew Jamie describes him as never being the same since returning allegedly from Uganda.
Wren gives fake information – For all purposes I didn’t harm Wren in any way. She gave me a fake name, I used the fake name. I may as well of wrote about an imaginary person. Something has happened where she does this I guess. I think it is a bit offputting and worthy of knowing before going there.
Lies on top of lies – By the end of this socially manipulative experiment that tests all natural human boundaries. With Jamie’s Fallacy logic and Wren’s mysterious but alarming past. If you took the time to listen… You won’t know what is real anymore. I am still scratching my head because everything was so convoluted and I was also high in an effort to remember as little as possible.
2 Property Management companies have a presence at one address.
Wren thinks people are out to interfere with her professional help – I am not even ruling out that Jamie Macari was interfering allegedly. However, I have pointed out to her fairly. That her excessive focus on “Qualified professionals” mixed with her paranoia of others interfering is a neurotic combination. I said she could consider going to the psychiatric ward where others wouldn’t dream to intervene in her getting help from “Qualified professionals”.
Requirements I met:
I did not use your real name Wren. I know that you gave me a fake name when we met.
I did not write this article without cause. I caught you breaking one of my boundaries which is not to make up stuff about my interpersonal dealings.
The nature of your seemingly neurotic behavior jeopardizes the validity of much of what I was supposed to know to this point.
I have hidden any contact information. You are only “Wren”. Yes, there is an address but that is for public safety reasons. You & Jamie according to actual “qualified people” I’ve talked to, “Have some alarming qualities which together make that house a powder keg of dysfunction. It would be better for everyone to dissolve this living arrangement. To not blow the whistle would be an act of negligence and put others at risk.”
I will not take this down… Wren I blocked you on GMAIL & SMS because I don’t even want you to bother asking me, Please & thank you. As I have pointed out some of what you have said to me on the record is wildly inappropriate and I need to beat you to any possible public claims. I consider this Public knowledge & even would go as far to say this as a home rental version of the workplace psychosocial hazard qualifies as something to call to public attention to. At this time I don’t speak apart of a collective, rather this is me analyzing the home objectively.
544 Victoria St, Kingston Ontario. The Weird communal living arrangement.– I don’t think they run the Air B&B anymore but it was weird that we all lived together cooperatively but we also had a business in there. Yet none of us could say “No I don’t support you running the air B&B. Furthermore Jamie portrayed himself as apart of a Property Management company which automatically invalidates your right to do this.
Ashton Deroy Writes: Honestly, I am so happy someone just took the time to engage me on a topic I am so passionate about and that is Universal Basic Income. Now I want to let my audience know that I am more of a Labour style Socialist. I am a Liberal Socialist after all. Here is what someone wrote to me about Universal Basic Income.
“Then what is your solution to automation and the reduction of unskilled labor that used to be the entry point into the workforce? Or if people are forced into quarantine and cannot go to work? Sounds economic policy can’t exist when those writing the policies benefit from the system as it is, unless there is a belief or rallying cry from an electorate that holds its politicians accountable instead of voting because they wave a blue or red flag. UBI at least addresses some of these issues without prioritizing stockholders or corporate interests first.”
There is a way better answer that doesn’t care at all about corporate or investment interests. It is called the Right to Work. I would support that a lot more than Universal Basic income. With a Right to Work, it is your pleasure to service society you are choosing it and you and entitled to flexible work conditions. With Universal Basic Income, you just get cash.
Honestly, I have heard the argument for Universal Basic Income and how we are on the path to being able to have Automated Communism. Listen to me when I say. In every version of Socialism & Capitalism that fails. It has a lot to do with under regulation and under participation. If you really think about Socialism & Capitalism. What is the real value? The value is in how many people are going to cooperate with the system. How well does it keep society in check?
In this society, we dream of where everyone gets free money. No one except the essential few has to work. It is not a dream! It is a nightmare! North Americans as a whole are not quiet & responsible people. So here is what happens? Addiction goes crazy, obesity goes up & GDP goes way too far down. That is the automated Communist/Capitalist dystopia in a nutshell.
Here is my problem with the state of unskilled labor and how it is being viewed in society currently. True or false low education is directly related to the crime rate? We need to see the obvious flaw in the current system and in Universal Basic income as it relates to unskilled laborers. These really are dangerous & I am sorry sometimes idiotic people we really should be keeping busy for 8 hours a day. It is called The Right to Work. Some have referred to it as Workfare. I don’t care what you call it.
I don’t care who pays for it. I don’t care how we achieve it. The point of The Right to work is this. Not participating in society has disastrous effects on someone’s mind. Like it or not? People aren’t going to take their Universal Basic income and read poetry all day. There is a bigger chance they take that money and do a lot of stupid stuff. However, with a job to return to tomorrow. Maybe we lessen the possibility of free time for stupidity?
Ashton Deroy writes: This is an emergency notice to my many Stoner friends on this blog! Right now there is a problem with Ontario Cannabis where people are receiving buds with mold. The OCS should be aware of this issue and re-fund receivers upon receiving it. Please do not smoke tainted recreational cannabis!
Has been communicating this issue out through her Instagram. I think that is so important and I praise her for doing this. Over the weekend we will continue to announce this issue & hold a discussion on the problem. I think it is important for me as a cannabis advocate to be on this issue and communicating actively.
Ashton Deroy writes: If you think you can love me while voting Progressive Conservative you are wrong. For a long time me & my brother have viewed this as a personal attack on us and I think it is time I become transparent. I don’t care if you hate Trudeau and think this is the best way out! If we don’t change the treatment of workers in our own country I will die.
Why will I die? I am entirely income dependent. If I go without a job I am going to sink faster than I will ever swim. If I take a job that doesn’t allow me to take care of myself properly I could have a heart attack! Do I have your attention yet?
As I have said prior. It is too late to join the army for me. I have been in the wrong shape for it, for years! I have too much debt to suddenly do a trade & I tried starting a business and a lack of understanding for my product (website administration and setup) was a huge barrier.
So this is it! I need to work, I need job security and I need schedule stability. Or I will die. Now is a time more than ever where you need to vote for parties that support the progression of workers’ rights. Now is the time where we must alienate the destructive ideals of the Conservative party and their needless attacks on Canadian workers. Conservatives took away from us and you have to pay for that!
As a comparative look at the parties. Here is my comparative analysis of parties that will help with my quality of living. This is important if you believe you are 100% supportive of me, you have to consider your vote. Please take a look at these parties to determine the best spot to support me and people like me.
We also need to focus more on living wage. It is not going to be a $14 an hour job to do the trick. After I finish school in order to get ahead I now need to earn a minimum of $20 an hour to be able to be comfortable and pay my debts. The other option is I die. I can’t defer OSAP payments and I can’t go without food.
This is exhausting, 10 years of the Conservatives federally. Now a Provincial government that attacks the lowest class of people is killing me! I do not want to double down on Doug Ford, I do not want to face peril in a government that does not create solutions. They only create tax breaks. When the country is facing crisis? The retraction plan of the Conservatives have never made sense. Their expansionary plans are actually somehow worse. Especially in how they focus on useless things such as tourism, gambling & outside investments. We don’t need a government that is absent at the wheel. We need a government with control. Let me remind you to conclude that Conservative right wing ideologies are destroying the effective governance of U.K. & the USA. Time to put the Conservative playbook to bed people!
