It appears the powers that be in California took Smokey the Bear at his word when he said only you can prevent wildfires.
Due to imminent winds, very dry weather and old power lines that seem to ignite when these conditions collide, over 2 million people in many parts of California have no power. It was intentionally cut off by PG&E aka the Pacific Gas & Electric company.
Said company almost went bankrupt last year when the ‘camp’ fires destroyed almost 19,000 buildings in a huge area. This time they are taking no chances with their ageing equipment and in doing so, are causing complete havoc in California.
To make matters even worse, if that can be, the utility warned customers that they might have to do without power for days after the winds subside because “every inch” of the system must be inspected by helicopters and thousands of workers on the ground and declared safe before the grid is reactivated. Yes dearie, only you can prevent forest fires and being the in battery business would make a lot of sense.
Seems Justin cannot shake the blackface scandal. Judy Sgro, his former immigration minister no less, said the following and it’s not an April fools joke as we’re in October. “Those in the black community have told me how much more love they have for the prime minister, that he wanted to have a black fa–” she said, cutting herself off. “He took great pride in that too.”
Is she normal? Black people were happy that Justin painted his face black at least three times because he wanted to identify with black people? There are simply no words to convey how completely dense this woman is.
And if you think that’s not enough, our darling Justin went to an elementary school thinking he was going score points by getting photo ops with the children.
Twin black girls, about five years old, looked him straight in the eye and asked why he painted his face brown. He gave his pat, lame answer that he was sorry. These two little girls were not satisfied with his response and pushed him further:
“But did you paint your nose and your hands brown?” Out of the mouths of babes.
Yesterday, on Yom Kippur, a white German dressed in old army fatigues, tried to get into a synagogue and murder as many people as he could. Mercifully the doors were locked and he couldn’t get in. Frustrated, he shot a man and woman on the street.
All the security in the world cannot stop these men once they get it into their heads that they need to kill people. However, taking precautions, such as locking doors, gives those under attack the precious minutes they need to protect themselves and call for help.
Pretending that these incidents happen ‘somewhere else’ is to bury one’s head deeply in the sand. Somewhere else is, as the song goes, is here, there and everywhere.
The French language federal debate is set for tonight…for Quebec only. No one in the rest of Canada gives a hoot about this debate.
Interestingly, Yves-Francois Blanchet head of the Bloc Quebecois and potential spoiler in Quebec for both the liberals and conservatives, had to apologise for comments today made by no less than four of his candidates.
According to media reports, these four geniuses posted anti-Islamic posts and videos. Given that the premier of Quebec, Legault says that the majority of those living in Quebec support Bill 21, where wearing a kippah or hijab is verboten as a teacher, government employee or judge, most likely no one here gives a rats what those people said. In fact, it will probably play very well in Quebec.
Both Andrew Scheer and Justin Trudeau have a lot to lose if they goof up tonight. Seats in the Quebec City region are very important to both of them and they don’t want Blanchet to usurp most of them.
We’re pretty sure the format will be better than the English debate Monday night. It will be hard to do worse than that one, with five women playing the chair game, each one sitting for ten minutes and then, poof! another one got the seat.
It made for a choppy night, with none of the candidates able to sink their teeth into a question. The talking over each other is simply childish. No one wants the other to get a snappy quote for the media so they all talk at once. Not very conducive for people to get to know the candidates.
Can someone tell those who think holding cities hostage to protest anything from the weather, to taxis to all the turtles in Ontario who are at risk mightily ticks people off?
Stopping traffic, climbing bridges, not letting people get to work or back home to get your personal point across makes people want to take your point and put it where the sun don’t shine.
