It's amazing what virologists you people are becoming.

Yeah, I think I will apply for a position with WHO when I retire the rest of the way.  I hear the corruption kickbacks there will be better.

No, you clearly suck at it but you should never say die.

We right wingers are always stalwart in the face of adversity. I have no fear of the virus. In fact, I intend to get it.

Apparently it's EI that terrifies you people.  I have no fear though, in fact I've already filed my claim.

You let me know how COVID-19 works out for you while I enjoy my beer and popcorn out on the deck.

No doubt the folks at EI know you personally by name. First name even. Meantime I know you people are sitting around all day, doing nothing and drinking beer. And I know who is paying for that beer and popcorn as well, hardworking honest people.

It figures that you and your ilk would enjoy this, as it provides you with a commitment to guaranteed government dole for what could be a long, long time. First step to providing a guaranteed living wage. It just needs to morph into that and become the new normal. No public comment, no vote, the people willingly allow it out of fear for their lives. Only the government can say if it's all clear or not, and so far it ain't. As long as people are still dying of the virus.

National mobilization for war is collectivism,  might as well just sit back and enjoy the ride, because under wartime conditions, the centralization of power is near absolute

They were already going to round up my Military Style Assault Weapons, so that could come at any moment

None the less I am fully proficient in the art of tactical shotgun, so in an operational sense, it's not actually a downgrade in firepower

In actual fact, the primary weapon for armed constabulary property defense would be the 870 Express Tactical, the SOCOM 18 is for bushwhacking

Yes it's especially gratifying knowing how much it burns you that Kumbaya is rising. Now get your pious economic ass out there and earn my benefits.

Trudeau has effectively instituted Universal Basic Income, $2000 per month per adult for all thrown out of work.  If it outlasts the pandemic, that will be a new society.  As long as we have enough automation to do the necessary production and it doesn't disincentivize work or make us less productive, I'm alright with it.  It also must not bury us in debt.  For now we have no choice.

That's not stimulus tho, 70% of the economy is consumer spending, that is emergency money which people will spend on essentials

So the economy will continue to spiral down

None the less, work is bullshit, jobs are jails, prancing around in a fog of de facto biological warfare agent while you work is the coal face incarnate

You didn't make the cut either?  I'm starting to feel like Leo Biederman in the movie Deep Impact.

What can I say...keep up the good work...thanks.

Yeah sounds like fun and games until the standard of living plummets.  I hope that doesn't happen.  In the Soviet Union there was an expression: "Government pretend to pay people and people pretend to work."

The main traffic noise is air traffic, we are on the corridor, but I'm an aviation enthusiast, so I like to watch the planes go by and we also get some more exotic stuff flying by, the CAF CH-147's fly by sometimes, nostalgia for Chinook, and I've even had a WWII B-17 make a low pass.

So you live near a Costco parking lot with planes going over your head all the time?

With all the selfie posts about your wealth, I thought you had it better.

I'm not rich by the standards of the rich, I'm just rich by my standards, since I grew up poor

You just get a hell of a lot more bang for your buck out here in the boonies than you do in Toronto,

My property was middle class priced here, in Toronto it would be worth millions

I got the huge yard, deck, patio, the woods and fields beyond, all the feexins, tho my house is not that big, it's not a McMansion, there's just me & my wife

Since I don't have to work, I don't have to live in the GTA, so then I can have the lifestyle of the Toronto rich at upper middle class prices

I love my job. I can make three times what I can make on the dole doing it but I love it so much I could probably still do it and pretend I was being paid.  We're becoming socialist because the alternative looks pretty grim.  Maybe I could probably get a job towing the dead out to the spoil grounds where ordinance and dredging materials are dumped.  I'd probably learn to love doing that too. The worst day on the water has always been better than the worst day on shore.

No no no no...the boonies are going to turn into the boomies when the dust settles and a property's remoteness isolation and distantness is evaluated the way water frontage is.  And who needs those steenkin rising sea levels anyway?
