Posted December 3, 2022 by Anonymous

I loved this! Found it on Mastodon, hand-made by @welshpixie@mastodon.art  Tonight the world of Twitter waited with bated breath for Musk’s big Hunter Biden reveal. Pffft (a wet sqibb sound)! So Elon’s big reveal was that the Biden team asked Twi…

Posted December 1, 2022 by Anonymous

Danielle Smith’s “Sovereignty Act” has parallels in history. Known as a Henry VIII act, it allows governments to pass laws without consent of Parliament. Hitler’s “Enabling Act” of 1933 is the most extreme example. The consequences were horrific. http…

Today’s News: Feeling so misunderstood

Posted November 30, 2022 by Anonymous

 I don’t understand why Alberta and Saskatchewan feel so misunderstood and persecuted and hard-done-by all the time. Fact of life: Canada’s population is not fairly distributed across the country and it never will be. Most of our people live …

Today’s News: Sometimes I wanna go Where a few hundred people know my name…

Posted November 18, 2022 by Anonymous
After ordering everyone back to work, Musk has now locked up his office buildings and ordered everyone to stay home for a few days. 
Nobody knows whether Twitter will reopen or just disappear. 

So the feeling on Twitter tonight is gloomy. 
I know Twitter wasn’t perfect, but I liked it — met some great people there, and I even got followed by a few hundred good folks too.  
I would be sad to see it all disintegrate.

So tonight I tried out my Mastodon account – here it is:  

It took me FOREVER to find where I could turn off the “dark mode” that Mastodon apparently defaults to – I find it too difficult to read white print on black background all the time – but I notice here when I embed a toot it is coming through in Dark mode still.
Anyway, for anyone interested in following me there, my Mastodon name is:
I will add it to the side column as soon as I can figure out how to do this. 

UPDATE: Just had to share this one, too:

Today’s News: Updates

Posted October 20, 2022 by Anonymous

Just a short one tonight. 

 First, about the POEC hearings:

And some of what we are hearing is just BS:

CSIS, on the other hand, says this:

An interesting point here:

I know what was happening to people in Ottawa during the FluTruxKlan occupation was terrible — here is an excellent list of everything the FluTruxKlan put them through.

But I think it was the border blockades that really caused the most trouble for the country as a whole — senseless, chaotic, jeopardizing the economy, shattering international relations.

The border blockades ranged from 3 days at the Pacific Highway Crossing in Surrey BC, to 18 days at the Coutts, Alberta crossing, and included 6 days at the Ambassador Bridge in Windsor Ontario and 6 days at Emerson, Manitoba. 

It was nuts, nonsensical — even if Canada had been willing to let unvaccinated truckers into the country, the United States was not, so Canadian truckers would still have needed to get vaccinations before they could cross the border.  This made it impossible to negotiate an end to the blockades. No level of government – municipal, provincial, federal – could meet the FluTruxKlan demands because they didn’t make any sense.
But nonsense never stopped the FluTruxKlan!
And it was the border blockades that really made this into an international story.

Next, about the nutty events in Britain:

And some amazing comparisons between the British and Canadian politicians:

Finally, about recent events in the Ukraine Russia War:
