We were sent an article by Dr. David Fisman who conducted a ‘study’ that unvaccinated people increase risk of COVID-19 infection among vaccinated. It appears that the Toronto Star, who first put this out, published his material as fact, without review and ignoring peer review.
These articles are infuriating, self-serving and selfish. Here is a something from Lancet, a weekly peer-reviewed general medical journal. It is among the world’s oldest and best-known general medical journals:
Lancet (2022):”fully vaccinated individuals with breakthrough infections have peak viral load similar to unvaccinated cases and can efficiently transmit infection in household settings, including to fully vaccinated contacts.”
Who gives people like Fisman a forum ? Is he trying to save the world? Keep everybody ‘safe’? He wants unvaccinated people to be isolated or put into special camps? Is he looking at Shanghai and what they are doing? Seems so. Our advice: move to Shanghai and all your problems will be solved.
Now for the next genius. Does everyone know who Dr. Theresa Tam is? She’s Canada’s Chief Public Health Officer. Whether or not she lives in the real world is very questionable as you will now see by the statement she made yesterday:
A federal mask mandate for air travelers now in its third year should not be repealed, says Dr. Theresa Tam. The chief public health officer called masks inconvenient but necessary: ‘If everybody’s going to be wearing a mask, why not?’
In other words, if she had her way, masks would be a permanent addition to your wardrobe. Does this apply only to adults or also to 2 year olds who fly? Here’s a headline for Ms. Tam: Canada is quickly becoming one of the only free countries in the world to have mask mandates. We won’t include countries like China where they have lost their minds looking for zero covid.
Theresa Tam was a disaster from the very beginning of this pandemic and has not changed one iota. She is an embarrassment.
Now that Elon Musk owns Twitter, is he going to allow the Donald back in? That’s one change that might take place.
Now for the other four changes that Musk wants done pretty quickly: 1. He has called for relaxing Twitter’s content restrictions and described a platform free from content moderation.
2. An edit button that would allow users to change tweets after they have been posted.
3. To prevent behind the scenes manipulation, the algorithm, or the piece of code that determines the priority in which tweets get served up to users, will become “open source” or available for the public to view and improve upon.
4. Remove scam and spam bots. To do this, he wants to authenticate “all real humans” or to have accounts overtly linked to other personal identifiers, whether it be a phone number, an email address or a photo.
In one of the ultimate woke-apologetic moves we’ve seen in a very long time, Harvard University released a report on its historic ties to slavery and pledged no less than $100 million to address the educational, social and economic legacies of slavery and racism.
Between 1636 and when slavery was outlawed in the US state of Massachusetts in 1783, Harvard faculty and leaders enslaved more than 70 Black and Indigenous people.
Can we talk? There’s no mention of the blatant anti-Semitism that quietly took place for decades. What’s about paying for people to deal with that? Oh wait.
They are still anti-Semites, this time using the BDS movement – boycott, divest and sanction of Israeli products. We heard about one student attending some kind of social function when she went to dip her cracker into Israeli-made humous. She was severely reprimanded for even thinking about eating something from Israel. And she’s Jewish.
Nothing more to say here except that if you’re white and Jewish, you’re toast.
There’s a group in quebec called The Mouvement d’éducation et de défense des actionnaires (MÉDAC). Yet another bureaucratic French language police office. Their mandate is to convince Quebec’s major corporations and their investors to promote Quebec’s French official status. In other words, no English written or spoken and all higher-ups must at the very least be bilingual, if not outright french Canadian. Ah, but money talks much louder than bleeding heart, pure-laine catholic French Canadians.
When presented to major publicly traded Quebec companies such as the National Bank, CGI, Metro and Laurentian Bank, well, let’s just say they didn’t embrace the idea. In fact, those running said companies recommended shareholders vote against the proposal.
The piece de resistance is that the crown jewel of quebec – the Caisse de Depot which is basically an extension of papa legault’s government, also voted against this proposed edict.
You can bet your bippy that this fight is far from over. The pure-laine white, christian French Canadians want this province 100% French. To them, English is a dirty, four-letter word. Now who exactly is going to open a business or move their head office here? We’ll put you out of your misery – no one.
Thelma did you know that flight attendants only start getting paid when all the passengers are seated? Seriously?
In their quest to stave off unionization, Delta airlines is going to start paying flight attendants during boarding. Who even knew this ridiculous rule even existed?
Who hasn’t seen flight attendants helping elderly people, parents with kids, semi-drunk passengers. Or the best one, trying to fit a suitcase clearly too big for the overhead bin and then having to deal with an unruly passenger who gets mad at the flight attendant for his or her stupidity. Good news story.
In May, English quebecers are taking to the streets to ‘protest’ Quebec’s draconian language laws. Can we talk? Bring out the candles, red squares and flower bouquets because that’s about as useful as this protest will be.
Unless 50,000 people show up. Then the protest becomes international news. 2000 English quebecers walking from McGill to the emperor’s office is good exercise and nothing more.
