  2. The left thinks they know what is good for society, whether we like it or not.

    And now they think they can use Covid-19 as a lever for instilling government control over our everyday lives. All are slaves to Big Bro.

      Yup.  We wouldn't have to do this if the right wasn't composed of people who put their personal convenience over the safety and well-being of their society, neighbors, friends and loved ones.  

  3. Former FDA Chief Scott Gottlieb Endorses Return to ‘Normal Activity’ for Vaccinated People: Their Risk of ‘Bad Outcome’ is on Par With Flu.

      How do you confirm someone is vaccinated? 

      Some sort of Vaccine Passport? 

  4. The overwhelming evidence suggests covid came from a lab in China. (CNN)

      I'm not. I'm pointing out that you're a pathetic liar and that you're not smart enough to understand anything you read.

      You really should look into something before you dismiss it. It’s the prevailing theory for many scientific reasons.

    4. BubberMiley

      BubberMiley

      I didn't dismiss it. I pointed out that you're misrepresentating what people say because you're too stupid to understand what you read or because you're a not-very-good liar.

  5. Yesterday
  6. I have been wearing a mask in public (and limiting my trips) since March 2020 when this whole thing went down.

    I’m not sure how being considerate to others for the common good is now being mocked by some who are calling it “living in fear” or that I am brainwashed, but it needs to stop....

    When I wear a mask over my nose and mouth in public and in the stores/Supermarkets/Pharmacies/Offices - I want you to know the following:

    * I'm educated enough to know that I could be asymptomatic and still give you the virus.

    *No, I don't "live in fear" of the virus; I just want to be part of the solution, not the problem.

    * I don't feel like the "government controls me". I feel like I'm an adult contributing to the security in our society and I want to teach others the same.

    *I am not brainwashed, I am educated, reading the scientific information and listening to reliable scientists (not persons with no qualifications to make any scientific conclusions)

    * If we could all live with the consideration of others in mind, the whole world would be a much better place.

    * Wearing a mask doesn't make me weak, scared, stupid or even "controlled". It makes me caring and responsible.

    *When you think about your appearance, discomfort, or other people's opinion of you, imagine a loved one - a child, father, mother, grandparent, aunt, uncle or even a stranger - placed on a ventilator, alone without you or any family member allowed at their bedside.....

    Ask yourself if you could have helped them a little by wearing a mask.

      I still have to work and have done so non-stop since cv began. I still don't know anyone who's had it, not even a mild case. But then I only know smart intelligent people who know how to protect themselves in a reasonable manner (as opposed to mindless, slavish obedience without understanding)   ;)

      See the first reaction is to wish people to die, 

      Nah, not the first reaction, by a long shot.  First reaction is to  hope they'll figure things out and choose not to be irresponsible and selfish.  When it becomes apparent that's not going to happen and they continue to spread misinformation and call people who are being responsible "slavish" and "mindless", well who needs people like that in our society?   Don't need them any more than we need drunk drivers, gangsters or religious extremists putting every one else at risk.

      Anyway, I don't really wish death on these people; I'd rather they got a clue.  But if such people get sick well ... Be like the habitual drink driver who kills himself, the gangster or extremist who gets shot - too bad, so sad, but you chose that for yourself.

      If the semi is Toronto - Edmonton or even Toronto - Montreal it's going to be epic after such a long drought of inter-Canada rivalry in the big games.

      Toronto, Winnipeg might be a bit of a bore though.

      Too bad my no-luck Canucks had such a year of bad breaks. Toronto - Vancouver would have been a good one too. Oh well...maybe next year. This year we'll get a high draft pick.

  8. Last week
  9. Pizza shop in town got closed down real fast. Health enforcement compliance officers are on the scene.

    You people got that? Health Enforcement Compliance Officers.

      It’s still the same virus.  Variants aren’t different enough.

    3. Boges

      Boges

      Even if previous infection did provide some significant immunity. It doesn't speak to a sizeable portion of the US not wanting to get the vaccine. 

      30-40 million have tested positive. That's maybe 10%. And of that percentage, how many still got the vaccine to provide an added layer of protection.

      Shady knows nothing of science, and he doesn't even know enough to know he knows nothing.

  11. Correction:  China’s emissions exceed the United States, EU and India combined.  (27% compared to 11% + 6% + 6%)

  12. Greasy cokehead Donald Trump Jr, who kills elephants and chops off their trunks for fun, thinks it's an insult to call someone "Jimmy Carter".

      The New York Post was censored last fall not for publishing libel but for publishing a completely accurate story that was negative toward Joe Biden.  There’s not a fascist tactic that Bubber doesn’t support if it helps his side.  No principles whatsoever.

    4. BubberMiley

      BubberMiley

      You're saying it was fascist of you to call Hunter Biden a pedophile with no accusation, evidence or conviction? I would just say it was immoral, gullible and stupid. Your mother must be very proud.

      So stupid they invented flight and went to the Moon. 

  14. The U.S. added just 266k jobs in April, way under the nearly 1 million that economists expected as the unemployment rate ticked *up* to 6.1%..  The Biden economy begins!  Just wait for inflation too.

  15. Canada lost 207,000 jobs in April amid renewed COVID-19 restrictions.  This is why more vaccines sooner was so important.

      Use the search option in the forum.  I’ve been saying the same thing since last spring.  Open, but with occupancy limits and mitigation.

      No, I just demanded they cut emissions. Don't make things up when you're stupid and wrong. It just makes you look stupider.

      You're the one who said I should. I didn't really think it would work. But I don't mind making you look stupid. It's fun for me.

  17. U.S. Blackfeet tribe in northern Montana provided surplus covid vaccines to First Nations from Canada.

  18. Lying about the 2020 election is wrong.  Lying about the 2016, 2004, 2000 election is perfectly fine.

      No, it's always wrong hypocrite. It was wrong when you did it in the past too.

      Also wrong when you riot and kill cops too, hypocrite.

    2. bcsapper

      Well, at least we're all past it now, and no-one except the utterly delusional thinks that Trump actually won the last election.

      Of course, that is not to say there aren't a lot of cowards who still claim they do.

  19. Accusing your opponent of doing exactly what you're doing is an effective strategy if your targeted demographic is gullible numbskulls.

  20. Want to increase your body's resistance to viruses? Staying home sitting and eating and drinking, smoking is not the way. Get physically fit, get lots of fresh air and sunshine, and eat fruits and vegetables. Get some exposure to less dangerous viruses*.

      Having a strong and healthy immune system does protect you from Covid, of this there is no doubt. Just look at me... I've been out there since day one. Not a thing wrong with me, I tell you.

      Or let me put this in reverse, for those who don't get, you know, all that brainy smart stuff. You have a weak immune system? Covid gremlins gonna come for you, baby... oh yeah.   ;)

      Vitamin D is good, but it won’t make up for overweight and inactive.

  21. Ontario on track to administer first vaccine dose to 65% of adults by end of May

      You could see 80%+ by July. Beating the goals set by Biden. 

  22. Health Canada approves Pfizer for children 12+. Should children be given first shots before many get their second shots?

      Getting 80-90% with 60-90% protection before July doesn't sound desperate to me.

      Then why are Canadians going to the U.S. for covid vaccines ?

    4. Boges

      Boges

      You just keep making the same point. I've conceded it. The US has ensured their supply. Being the #1 economy in the world gets you that. 

       

  23. Desperate Canadians flying south to get COVID vaccine shots as U.S. demand falls - NP

      Good for them. Perhaps the US should quit hoarding vaccines they don't need. 

    2. bush_cheney2004

      bush_cheney2004

      The US has given vaccine to other nations.  How many doses has Canada provided ?   If only Canada could manufacture covid vaccine....easier to beg from the Americans ?

  24. Ontario asks Michigan to vaccinate Canadian workers "stateside"...the side with vaccine.

  25. U.S. backs waiving IP protections for vaccines. Never thought I'd see the day.

      And much of the rest of the developed world. They're all pledging to get off Fossil Fuels. 

      The US is just late to the game. 

    4. Shady

      Shady

      The United States has led the world in reducing emissions.  Regardless the world isn’t ready to get off fossil fuels.  Closing pipelines doesn’t result in lower emissions or getting off fossil fuels.  These fuels are just transported other ways.
