  1. Russia pushing anti-vax message behind the scenes to undermine confidence in western governments and covid relief efforts.

  2. Mister Christie, you make really shitty packaging for your cookies! Why can't they be opened more easily and re-sealed! You should all be BEATEN!

  3. It's so good we have Shady here for non-stop news about American far right politics. What would we do without him?

      I think OW still lives in an imaginary world where Canada is still in lockdown. 

      He prefers it there, so he can rage post.

      I am saying the fall lockdown is a certainty.

      vaccines are not working, read the news and learn, if possible. 

      “booster shots needed”

      - the second dose is already a booster. You need a booster for your booster.

      - Over 40% of newly infected in the UK are already double vaccinated.

      Go find your own links, you buncha slaves.

      or don’t

      the dichotomy might only make you more paranoid and dysfunctional

      than you already are

      Since 88% of adults in England are vaccinated, you're saying that the remaining 12% unvaccinated make up 60% of people in hospital with covid? 

      And that's supposed to be an argument against vaccination?

  5. 80% of Americans own 7% of the wealth in America.

      I recommend a graduated increase in taxes on dividends and capital gains. Leave it as is for those earning less than 100k. Increase the tax by ten percent for those making up to 200k. Increase the tax by 50% for those making up to 250k. For those above that level there should be no distinction in income. Dividends and capital gains earnings should be fully taxed as income.

      They also need to go through the tax code to weed out all those loopholes the wealthy have paid to have inserted over the years. And I say this as a conservatives because the figure I quoted above is not something a democratic society can long survive without some hard left agitator winding up in control and smashing everything.

      Sounds good. Kommander Biden may fulfill your prophecy.

      What we need is someone willing to stand up to the massively entrenched System. Someone who is willing to stick their neck out, as they will be totally vilified.  Someone who would break away from the entrenched liberal establishment that has rotted to the core.

      Right now, only Donald Trump is willing to be that man.

    4. Argus

      Donald Trump didn't stand up against anything. Donald Trump presided over an enormous tax cut aimed squarely at his wealthy friends - and himself. The bill also added in extra benefits for real estate developers and removed the wealth tax his kids would have to pay when he dies. Sorry, but if you think Trump cares about anyone but himself you're painfully naive. He has spent his life sucking up to the wealthy and caring not the least bit about anyone else.

  6. If I was a zillionaire and had paid to develop a rocket to take me into space I think I'd want it to last more than a couple of minutes.

  7. Norwegian beach volleyball women indignantly refuse to wear 'revealing' bikini bottoms even though those are the only reason anyone watches their sport and the only reason any of them get sponsorship.

      Argus only watches women's sports if they are wearing bikinis. 

  8. One out of five Americans believe vaccines have microchips so the government can spy on them. Guess who they support for president...

      Yet they happily spend hundreds or thousands of dollars to have a device spy on them in their pocket. 

  9. Surely no one expected Canada's Olympic flag bearer to be a white guy, did they? Come oonn!

      What the hell does it matter how many people who are non-white have been flag bearers over the years? There weren't non-white flag bearers because up until the last 50 years Canada was about 98% white other than the reserves, and people on the reserves were rarely involved in major level athletics.

      Would you have objected to De Grasse? How about Donovan Bailey, Canada's greatest sprinter, not picked for 2000 in spite of all his heroics in 96.  Harry Jerome, never picked either.

      I would always object if the best player wasn't picked.

      Can we throw all the deadbeat non-taxpayers in that island too? If so I might support that plan.

      Well if we're going to an island where you don't have to deal with dummies that don't know basic stuff like water mist can be an aerosol maybe you can sign me up.

      Also why would it matter if the Texas Democrats were vaccinated when the point was normal folk have to wear masks regardless.

       

  11. Media horrified as Brian Pallister dares to say something nice about our ancestors.

  12. Canada has managed to cultivate a culture that is simultaneously self-hating and self-righteous. We have no pride in being Canadian. Yet we are confident we are better than everyone else.  -  Meghan Murphy

      I know.  I do it to be annoying, mainly.

      It's funny how the woke can't bear the thought of white people not being racist, so they invent ways of making not being racist racist.

      Can't lose with that kind of logic.

      Yes, either you bow your head and take a knee (as Trudeau does) or you're simply demonstrating your 'white fragility'.

  13. Girl wins spelling bee. No one cares. Black girl wins spelling bee = national news across the world.

      I'm certainly not surprised a black girl won.  I wonder why they are.

      The Scripps winner is national news in the US every year. In recent years usually won by an Asian.

      If you watch Kelly and Ryan in the morning the Scripps winner is always on their show, and others.

  14. JWR decides against running for re-election, says Parliament has become toxic and ineffective under Trudeau. Gee, I thought he was going to reinvigorate parliament with his transparent government and his respect for the independence of committees...

      We also removed some statues. Give credit where it’s due.

  17. When we let people like this into our country why do we not deport them when they commit crimes?

  18. Just got my second dose. Soon I will be communicating directly with Bill Gates through my microchips as we discuss ways to make Shady even crazier!

  19. India finds new and even more contagious variant - coming soon to Canada! Where we're too nice to have quarantines (especially in the runup to an election where Trudeau needs Indo-Canadian votes). 

  20. Canada joins Russia, China, Iran and North Korea in condemning Canada's human rights record.

  21. A federal judge on Thursday dismissed a lawsuit against Fox News after lawyers for the network argued that no "reasonable viewer" takes the primetime host Tucker Carlson seriously, a new court filing said.

      How’d his story about the covid lab leak end up?   It was “disinformation” until it wasn’t.  Stick to your “democracy is under attack” hyperbole then. 🙂

      Shady quotes Carlson every other day as if he's the yoda of Republican thought, and here's the FOX network saying no one can be expected to take him seriously. And Shady hears that and says "Tucker Carlson is my GOD! He speaks truth! All gather round and listen to the wisdom from the mount!"

       

  22. Trudeau scores multiple woke points with new Supreme Court judge - immigrant, Indian, Muslim, and bilingual.

    Legal acumen? Why would that matter?
