  1. How come everything is f***ing made in China?  

    Or, parts of it came from  f***king China?

     

    Who got us at the mercy of this f***?

      We did with our need to save a few bucks and our greedy companies trying to make a few more bucks....using cheap labor...

  2. Uh-oh.  Suspected bubonic plague in inner Mongolia.

      The Bubonic Plague is treatable with Antibiotics.

      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. 

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

     

    1. BubberMiley

      BubberMiley

      Because she still is. 

  4. Illegal immigrants want equality!  They're protesting for resident status to gain access to healthcare, Education, CERB etc..,.....lol. 

    Something tells me, they'll get it.

      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.

      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.

      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.

  5. God Bless Canada!

     

     

  6. streaming below CBC:  4.3 earthquake struck northern Oklahama after Trump's rally.

     

    What are they getting at?   What's Trump got to do with that? :lol:

      so, news media invoking Trump's rally like as if there's even any significance or connection with the earthquake........

      ..............it's poor journalism.

       

      De-fund the CBC!

    3. Boges

      Don't you mean ABC? A fully private organization.

      I saw it first on CBC.

  8. My white cat came home with a black face! 

    Does that make him a racist.....or.....did he just come out  of the closet as a Trudeau fan?  

    I'm really full of angst here.....

    1. BubberMiley

      No, he escaped!  He rolled and burrowed his face in dry mud!

  9. What do they mean about Trump's walk down the ramp?  What's wrong with it?

  10. WTF?

    Why does Black Lives Matter want to de-fund Law Enforcement?

    1. scribblet

      scribblet

      So they  can riot, loot and torch houses with children inside ?

  11. looks like the mandatory mask is getting closer....and closer.....to becoming the norm!

  12. There's no excusable reason to kneel on someone's neck.   NONE!

  13. Trudeau doesn't want  to talk about anything else except coronavirus. 

    Lol.   No other important issues - they can wait, whenever.  He doesn't have to deal with them.

    Saved by the virus! :)

     

  14. Trump's valet and Pence's aide tested positive.  Could any assassination attempt use the virus to get to Trump?

    1. BubberMiley

      BubberMiley

      I have informed the Secret Service of your plot.

    2. dialamah

      dialamah

      If Trump dies in office, every Trumpster would assume it was an assassination,  no matter how many docs certified it as natural causes or normal course of an illness.  Much better for the world if he's voted decisively out of office and continues to live a long life, descending the rest of the way into dementia.

  15. Why doesn't the Feds just buy the agricultural produce from farmers to keep them producing?   If hospitals can be built in a matter of days, surely humonguous storehouses can easily come up as well in strategic places! At least, that ensures that we don't have any shortages.  They can be temporary suppliers to grocery stores, and can supply Food Banks and other charities.  Any surplus can be exported to help other struggling nations.

    The preparations made in the Biblical famine of the  Joseph narrative comes to mind.

      That is a good idea.  But for the immediate problem that we face now - food shortage is very likely looming if farmers stop producing as they used to (because of restaurants being closed), maybe the Feds should step in and offer assurances to them by buying up the products that normally go to restaurants. 

      I don't know if this is a reason why we've got eggs shortage.  There is a limit to eggs we can buy here where I live which is only 20-30 minutes from Ottawa.  Costco is said to have empty shelves for some meat products too, I'm not sure if they're talking about here or the US.

    3. BubberMiley

      Sounds like you've thought it through.

      I'm not like you, Bubber - I don't just post without thinking.     :)

  16. I got the CERB for April.  When do we apply for May?

  17. Nescafe that normally sells for $4.95 now priced at $7.95!  I suppose, brewing coffee will be next!

    Also, I wanted to pickle some eggs, but there's a limit to how much eggs you can buy!  You can only have 2 cartons!

      Lets hope your example was just random. However food producers are sounding alarms food production is collapsing. Farmers report spring crops are not being harvested, they are being left to rot in the ground. Meat producers shuttering and throwing away tons of meat. Dairy farms pouring away milk, and having to "de-populate" the animals used for meat.

      What we eat now is already in the food system and from food stored in warehouses. New fresh food may become scarce if we dont change certain things as soon as possible.

      Trudeau had publicly stated that beef prices could go up - I imagine, if he's stated that at the briefing, then prices could really jack up.  I think it'll be most food products too.

    Hey I just noticed I have a couple of honorable mentions from dear old betsy over at redneckville. Apparently she is smarting a little over the giggles we get over here from peeking over there. Don't worry besty, we're open minded enough over here to even let shady join. ;D
     
    Didn't take long for this particular lurker, eh?  hearty-laugh.gif
     
    Just meant to show you how often he comes here. giggle.gif

      3 years......and you got only 60 members - with only 5 regulars!!!

      Lol.  Doesn't that tell you sumthin?

      Looks like you regulars are turning off more than you keep! animated-laughing-smiley-emoticon.gif

       

    3. BubberMiley

      BubberMiley

      I count about 20 regulars but you're clearly paying a lot closer attention than I am. 

    4. betsy

      betsy

      Lol.  Depends what you mean by "regulars."    I'll take Moonlight's observation - hahaha, after all he's voiced his frustration due to boredom on your site!  look at you - even you are obviously bored over there! 

       

      5 regulars! animated-laughing-smiley-emoticon.gif

  19. Thanks Bubber.   Just took a peek at that stinkpit - MLW even got its own thread! 

    Hahaha, yup - it's a kinda sour-grape gripe thread - of course, against posters here!   With the only sensible rebuttal views coming from Moonlight Graham!

    Hahahaha

    5 regular posters!  Lol.  Must be the most deeply hollow echo chamber in town!  With Omni and the Squid included in that number - meh, they don't really count cos they're only noise,  they really don't say anything!  Omni can't even read!   animated-laughing-smiley-emoticon.gif 

     

    They don't know how to attract more - MH wants to start a project how they can poach posters from other forums.  No wonder Bubber makes a promo here - but....

     

    ................but Bubb,  who really wants to win  a "date-night" with Waldo? Hahahahaha yellow-laughing-smiley-emoticon.gif

     

    Oh my, Omni seems to be taking a peek here too often! :lol: He sounds the most sour of all the grapes over there! :lol:

      I never apologize, BubberMiley. It's a sign of weakness. You people are weak.

      I am proud to be attacked by several ex-members over there, because it means I am still in their heads....still hearing my footsteps.    It's funnier still because several seek emotional support and hugs while attacking members here.  Maybe getting banned has traumatized some of them.

    4. betsy

      betsy

      I supposed  those attackers at that echo chamber must've been deeply "traumatised!"  Lol.

      That's where Greg has failed:  he didn't provide any counselling! :lol:

  20. Will Covid-19 mark a new wave of baby boomers?

      Undoubtedly.  And they'll all want jobs.  Watch for climate change to get a lot worse.

      Yes, if their grocery bags are such a filthy petri dish they are asked to remove them from the store. Repulsive!

      Is that right? 

      Ahhhh.....so, you monitor every cashier at every stores, at all times they are open to the public?

      I suppose, now you hallucinate yourself to be OMNIPRESENT? LIKE GOD?  :D

      Here's some information for you about why it might be a good idea not to selfishly destroy our living environment for the sake of being selfish.

      Someone one here really loves to make sh.t up, no one said they were asked to remove their bags because they were dirty.  Some grocery stores will not allow anyone to bring their own bags, no matter how clean.  Continually imputing words and actions not said is s slimy tactic, as slimy as this virus. 

  22. Did the Opposition check the fine print???  For all we know....Trudeau also slipped it in that bill that he'll be PM for the next 20 years.....or, for life! 

    Kinda taking a page from Xi and Putin! :lol:

    1. scribblet

      scribblet

      I wondered that too, who knows what they slipped in there, at least it looks as if they are limited to 6 months.   Talk about an egregious power grab.   Tantamount to overturning the election results.

  23. Funny how Trudeau's reason for not being tested for coronavirus despite his wife's illness, is readily accepted by the Canadian press - and yet, you see endless US media moron badgering Trump about not being tested!

    Like what the Canadian doctor had advised Trudeau (the same thing that the White House doctor had advised Trump) - if you're not showing any symptoms,........it's moot.

      Rumour has it that they are separated so if he hasn't been anywhere near her he wouldn't need to be tested, but they can't say that, all pics shown of them are old ones.      Margaret Trudeau was there too but no mention of her being in isolation or the crew for that matter, and whoever else was on the flight. 

  24. What the heck is "VIOLENT rain?"  It was streaming below either CTV or CBC ....."violent rain kills 23....."

  25. No more blockades news on tv.  Are trains running now?
