  1. How long will they keep her around?

    They're trying to figure out how to slow down the replacement nomination -  the CNN anchor hopes decency and decorum will be displayed since she hasn't been buried yet - this might be the longest wake in history!

  2. Schools will remain open in a second wave - even in red zones!  sez Quebec.   I think this will be the same everywhere.

    Lol....for all the postured outrage, they're  doing the same thing as Trump - except that Trump is brutally blunt about it!

    The economy has to go on with or without covid!  Sure there will be casualties - but that's just the way it is.

      Lol.   Whether the mask is effective or not - I'm saying, there won't be a shutdown as we saw it in the spring!  

      THE ECONOMY CAN'T AFFORD IT!   That's the bottom-line!

       

      Trump's been thinking about that all these time!

      Trump's achieved both economic hardship and world leading COVID-19 cases and deaths.

      What country isn't having any economic hardship????

  3. What's the point of in-school covid testing.....if it's voluntary???

    It's just waste of money!

     

    Who's making up these useless measures?

      Okay then.......explain how that works.   What's that testing for?

      What's its purpose?

    3. BubberMiley

      BubberMiley

      You don't know? To find out if they have covid. 

    4. betsy

      betsy

      Why do they have to find out if they're not showing any symptoms?

      And, if the testing shows they don't have covid - what does that accomplish?  IT SERVES NOTHING IF THERE ARE PEOPLE IN THE SCHOOL WHO HAD NOT BEEN TESTED!

      What it does is get the students who got tested, to have FALSE SECURITY!  They could get covid as soon as they step outside in the hallway right after being tested - if they get infected by someone who opted not to get tested.  They'd get complacent and feel reassured enough to visit granma and granpa.

      If they'll spend money doing testing - it has to be for everyone! 

  4. CNN asked Schumer to comment on Trump claim about the chaos in New York. Lol.

    His answer?   Trump is dividing the nation! :lol:

      Michael Moore warns that Donald Trump is on course to repeat 2016 win

      “Sorry to have to provide the reality check again,” he said.

      Moore, who was one of few political observers to predict Trump’s victory over Hillary Clinton in 2016, said that “enthusiasm for Trump is off the charts” in key areas compared with the Democratic party nominee, Joe Biden.

      It's hard to compete with Trump when it comes to attention-getting - maybe that's why they're so "quiet."

      But with Biden...........

      Lol, it just might jack terrorism up again. :lol:

      Results also vary based on who is doing the polling.

      Rasmussen was among the few who got the polling right in 2016! 

      So, there!

      Amazing. Let the bobble-heads spin.

  8. Is there bad history between O'Toole and Doug Ford? 

    1. Boges

      Boges

      The Federal CPC treated Ford like he was toxic during the 2019 election. 

    2. betsy

      I thought there was something like that, but just wasn't sure.  Now, I understand why Ford won't want to campaign for O'Toole.

  9. Katie Simpson reported that it was strange no democrats were in  Delaware for the DNC but lots of Trump supporters!  :lol:

  10. Only 5 Million to Lebanon?

     

    Though I do wholeheartedly agree that the money to not be given to the government........

    ....can we please raise that up a bit .......even if it's just to equal the amount we've rewarded to Khadr!

    Lol.   Why do we give only half the amount to a suffering nation of what we gave to only one individual?

      @Betsy  I'm more concerned about who gets the money and if it goes to the actual cause. Trudeau has said it will go   to "trusted" humanitarian organizations, so let's hope it gets there and not the likes of Hezbollah. 

    3. betsy

      .............or, an umbrella of WE!

       

      Wouldn't that just beat all?

  11. So many billions going out!   Covid-19 could be the perfect cover for some serious hocus-pocus with taxpayer's money! 

    With all talks about billions of spendings for Covid-19........................... we may get quite disensitized about the dollar figure that it gets easy to lose track of some of that bundles.

  12. The lawyers for the BLM came to the rescue of protesters arrested for throwing paint on statues.  These are vandals!   They're mimicking the destruction that's now happening in the USA.

    What I want to know - who's funding the vandalism that's starting to happen in our nation?

      Why are all the failed debaters on this site wannabe doxxers?

  13. allegations against Blanchett - a distraction?

    Notice they haven't been talking about the WE scandal lately?

    1. BubberMiley

      BubberMiley

      Hmmm...did betsy make anonymous allegations against Blanchett in order to blame Trudeau? It all makes sense. :lol:

    2. scribblet

      No coincidence that the anonymous allegation came after Blanchett called For Trudeau's resignation

      Yes, it all makes PERFECT SENSE!

      National Polling was all right. Hillary did win by a significant margin. Irrelevant with the Electoral College however. 

      In the US you need to focus on a handful of battleground states. All of which also have Biden also winning.

        No need to get agitated by Rasmussen. :)   After all, you got all the usual polls that got it wrong the last time, to count on. :lol:

      Let's wait for November poll.  Btw, that surge happened in one week.

      I won't be surprised if he wins by a landslide.

      Trump didn't even make a coherent statement on globalization.  How could he have been right?

      Yep. Haven't you heard, Covid-19 is treatable with hydroxychloroquine. Apparently mentioning this drug by name stresses out liberals! :lol:

      Not as effective as other drugs. And without the side-effects. 

  20. Why is CTV still referring to Meghan Markle as the "Duchess of Sussex?"

      Because she still is.

      The only reason they say 'Canadians won't do these jobs" is because the mass of unskilled labour coming in through the immigration and asylum system every year keeps wages low. If it weren't for the immigrants and refugees wages would rise to attract workers.

      As for the agricultural TFW workers guess what, the moment you give them citizenship they're going to leave the farms and head for Toronto and Vancouver and we'll have to bring in more TFWs to pick crops. And given these are third world farm laborers you can classify them all as 'unskilled labour' off the farm, so they will, at best, get minimum wage jobs and have to be carried by the rest of us.  So that idea just won't fly.

    3. Army Guy

      Lots of unskilled labour coming in as immigrants, so nothing new on that front, How many Syrian immigrants did we bring in, I would think we have more in common with them, morals , values, religion than many of the other immigrants we bring in.

    4. Argus

      I doubt it. They're mostly rural people and so deeply religious Muslims. Harper tried to bring them in more slowly, targeting those most in danger like Christians and Yazidis. Mr. Selfyboy, though, just wanted raw numbers to make himself look good.

  22. God Bless Canada!
