Thelma and Blanche have a confession to make. Well, not exactly a confession but we are walking back some comments made in the past few weeks. We don’t think that Canada is a communist country. That terminology was a bit extreme.
However…and this is a big however, fingering people who donated money online to the truckers and freezing their bank accounts is way, way over the top. In fact, it is a very dangerous precedent. So while Canada is not a communist country, one best better not tick off Justin as the truckers did or you will find your civil rights very seriously eroded.
The emergencies act was not necessary. At all. The fault of allowing the truck convoy to take hold in Ottawa and subsequently other places lies directly at the feet of the police departments. Ottawa’s police were woefully incompetent. They had no leadership and it appears that unless Justin brought in the troops from the ROC (rest of Canada), that convoy would have remained there until July 1 so they could use their firecrackers to celebrate our birthday.
How about this? Justin was hiding anyway. All he had to do was get the mayors and premiers together on a conference call with the RCMP and get everyone to send in the troops. He was a woose so what was the point of infringing on people’s civil rights by freezing their bank accounts. Pure, 100% spite. Done by someone who simply cannot lead.
And here’s something else for you to ponder: Why was it ok for Barack Obama to endorse Justin but it’s not ok to support Trump? Both are from the United States. Both are butting into our business.
Here’s your answer: Because Justin despises Trump and his cache of deplorables and is in love with Obama. So if you are a deplorable and you donated to the truck convoy watch out.
And while we’re at it – we want to know what the Montreal media – the English radio station to be exact, are smoking. The police did a stellar job on Friday of clearing the truck convoy? You bet they did a stellar job. The entire world media was watching. How would it have looked if they came in like they do here in our poutine province with the tear gas, heavy handed measures and kettle anyone who dares protest anything?
We’ll tell you. Justin is already being raked over the coals for his total mishandling of what happened. Had the police started beating up people, he would have been hung out to dry by the international media. Thelma, you can bet your bippy that the police were told in no uncertain terms in any language you can understand not to lay a finger on those truck drivers.
FYI – Justin is getting obliterated on Fox News. Completely obliterated. As well, they are playing excerpts of speeches of European leaders who are appalled by his behavior and the excess of his actions. Freezing bank accounts is a massive red light.
Our ‘foreign minister’ Melanie Joly is running home from France in case war breaks out between Russia and the Ukraine. Can someone please a) send her map of Europe and b) tell her that Paris is not going to war. Like she’s going to stop this war from happening. Thelma, stop rolling your eyes and ‘splain what the purpose of her going to France was in the first place? Let’s think…oh wait. No purpose.
Another genius appointment from Justin, with the same criteria as usual – being pretty, or being a racial minority and/or his friend. Competence for the job? Not even in the equation.
In the be-careful-what-you-wish-for department, there is no doubt that Volodymyr Zelensky, president of Ukraine probably wishes he were still a comedian. Yes Thelma, you read that right. Zelensky started out as a lawyer but while in law school realized he loved acting and comedy. He became active in theatre and a performance group called Kvartal 95 Quarter 95.
He then cofounded Studio Kvartal 95, a production company that would become one of Ukraine’s most successful entertainment studios where he served as artistic director until 2011. He eventually went on to play the president in a series called Servant of the People.
The rest of the story is long and convoluted. Suffice it to say that on December 31, 2018 he announced he was running for president, pre-empting the current president’s New Year’s speech. It is to be noted that the president at that time was a Russian puppet.
To his great surprise, Zelensky (who is Jewish), won the election. And now he is facing down Putin who is hell-bent on bringing Ukraine back to mother Russia.
Emperor Legault has decided – unilaterally – to do away with masks in schools. While we are applauding that decision, one has to wonder just how bad the polls are if the emperor is dropping his edicts faster than he can take off his underwear.
Well that didn’t take long. The Société québécoise du cannabis (SQDC) union has voted to go on strike. Wait a minute Thelma. Didn’t they just open? Yes dear, in 2018. “And they are already going on strike?”Welcome to la belle province.
And what are they complaining about? Working hours, wages, team leader positions and transfers between branches. Guess what? Shut them all down.
Habs fans in Montreal are just about ready to have a Stanley cup parade after the Canadiens won 3 games in a row.
In a unanimous vote lawmakers in Russia have given President Vladimir Putin permission to use military force outside of Russia’s borders, sparking concerns that a broader attack on Ukraine could be imminent. Like they had a choice.
We thought it would take a couple of years for all the bs to come out regarding the handling of the covid pandemic. Well, it’s already happening. U.S. states rely heavily on COVID-19 data collected by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), but the agency isn’t publishing large amounts of the data it collects.
For starters, the CDC has gathered data for COVID-19 hospitalization for over a year categorized it by race, vaccination status, and age and it hasn’t publicized most of that data. Last year, the CDC was criticized because they weren’t looking into breakthrough infections in all vaccinated Americans,
As well, they have been gathering data since the COVID-19 vaccines were first launched last year, but they don’t want to make those numbers public because people might think the data means the vaccines don’t work. Something really, really stinks here.
Kamala Harris does not ever disappoint in her endless inability to do her job as Vice President. Her latest ‘word salad’ which is what people are now calling all her press conferences, came after she returned from a Munich meeting with several European allies in hopes of securing a united front in the event that Russia’s Vladimir Putin decides to invade Ukraine.
To say she was well over her head would be the understatement. Upon returning from this crucial meeting, this was one of her comments to those attending her presser: “I mean, listen guys, we are talking about the potential for war in Europe. I mean, let’s really take a moment to understand the significance of what we’re talking about.”
A word salad complete with the dressing.
