Mayor Coderre was asked this morning how things are going when interviewed on the radio. Especially in light of the over 22 million people who watched the demolition derby video on Beaver Hall Hill on Monday. His response: Sh.t happens. Yes Blanche, the mayor said that. He could also have said let them eat cake. Or off with their heads.
If his car had slid down the hill we think he would have had a very different reaction. Instead of taking ownership of the situation he fluffed it off. It’s his job as mayor to investigate what happened and to make sure it doesn’t happen again. Blanche, he’s not a mean person. He’s just a shtikel too comfortable in his own skin and certainly in his job. Sounds like he takes up all the oxygen in the room.
The pope is another beauty who needs to button it up. He waded into the geffuelment of fake news. Doesn’t he have pope business to do? And since when does the pope troll the internet? Obviously he doesn’t have enough to keep him busy. But we digress.
He spoke out on media outlets that focus on scandals and smears and promote fake news as a means of discrediting people in public life. That wouldn’t have been half bad, but he kept going.
Before you read this next part, may we suggest that you don’t eat anything for a moment. He said, and we quote: Journalists and the media must avoid falling into “coprophilia” – an abnormal interest in excrement. Those reading or watching such stories risked behaving like coprophagics, people who eat faeces.
Hey Blanche, ya think Coderre read this before making his genius statement? What a coincidence that they both refer to the same grossness. Honestly…
In case you haven’t noticed, when crossing the border from the US into Quebec all the signs are in French only. Including the serious ones like road closed or tunnel closed when the lights are blinking or how about the bridge is closed.
While those who live here might get the message, there are plenty of truck drivers and tourists coming in from the US who speak not a word of French. We are guessing that the signs are all in French because the Quebec government is afraid that their language will become diluted if they alert people to dangers on the road. Seriously? As we have said on more than one occasion, the bureaucrats here have peas for brains.
Seems that a petition was launched to change this and make all road signs bilingual. And that very special department, l’office de la langue francais agrees that the signs are allowed to be in English when it’s a matter of safety.
Blanche, ya think these are the same dudes who forgot to salt the down part of hill on Monday? Could be.
While we are not going to list all of Trump’s picks for his cabinet etc, this dude gets an honourable mention, partly due to this name – Andrew Puzder. Blanche, did he make that name up from something longer or is that his real name. Puzder?
Trump has nominated him for Labor Secretary. One of the things he does not support is the $15 an hour minimum wage and he’s right. We have heard and read way to many articles about this idea and how bad it is for the masses. If the minimum wage goes to $15, thousands and thousands of people will lose their jobs as small businesses will simply not be able to absorb the costs.
We also read that big chains like MacDonalds are speeding up their development of robots to do the jobs of people. So instead of 3 dudes flipping burgers, there will be one dude setting the robot.
While we are certainly not upset that Trump won the election it’s taking us a while to get used to his tweeting business. It was one thing when he was campaigning, but now that he’s president-elect and moving into the White House in about six weeks, well, it’s not quite presidential.
Ah, Blanche, don’t you know that he’s rewriting the book on being presidential? While that may be true, he kind of stepped into it yesterday when he took on a union leader in Indiana.
Chuck Jones is President of United Steelworkers 1999 and owns a flip phone so he doesn’t even see tweets. The issue? Trump said he saved 1100 jobs at Carrier, Jones said it was more like 800 jobs. Right after he heard that, Trump tweeted that Jones wasn’t doing a very good job. Jones then received the following voicemails: One voice asked: What kind of car do you drive? Another said: We’re coming for you.
Jones is a simple, unsophisticated dude. He’s certainly no match for Trump who should lay low for as long as he can which would be about ten seconds. The visuals are really not good.
Michael Moore is not only an idiot, he’s a dangerous idiot. He predicted Donald Trump would win the presidency months before his victory and now, obviously emboldened by himself is now encouraging people to protest the President-elect’s upcoming inauguration.
He went even further with this announcement: If you are living outside the US, you can take action at US embassies, borders, or other symbols of neocolonial power.
Our suggestion is that someone take away his phone and computer. He’s a serious menace to society.
John Glenn, the first American to orbit Earth died on Thursday in Columbus, Ohio. He was 95.
