  1. It looks like there will be a large truckers convoy starting in BC and rolling through to Ottawa to oppose Trudeau's vile vaccine mandates for the trucking industry. We are in for a rough ride as as many as 40k trucks will come off the road because of sock boys stupidity. https://canada-unity.com/bearhug/

  3. The infringements on freedoms for the vast majority of Canadians are unprecedented in Canada. You’d have to look at Nazi occupied Europe for an analog. It was done also to Black slaves and in the resettlement of Indigenous. This business of requiring digital passports to enjoy basic freedoms, the state-mandated closure of businesses, restrictions on gatherings, and more is breathtaking in its overreach. It is totalitarianism.

  4. Instead of a growing middle class as it should be, we're devolving into Feudalism with the great barons living behind walls while you toil in the virtual fields among the invading hordes. Yeah...a little betrayed. But no worries...you'll own nothing and be happy. Your new MS-13 neighbor promises to mow his lawn...soon.

  6. I have volunteered to meet the truckers in my city today. I also have 2 friends driving with the convoy - one from BC, one from AB. Here's what happened this weekend: The GoFundMe is over $3 million. Trudeau had GoFundMe freeze the account, claiming the money is going to fund terrorist activities. This is being fought. Highway cams have been turned off along the route, so the public can't follow it. CBC news articles claim the convoy is in protest of road conditions in Canada. You are being lied to. The convoy is leaving Edmonton today, it is 100 kms long. Truckers from the US are starting to come up now to join. Estimates 500,000 people, 50,000 trucks. Virtual media blackout on it, except for the lying reports by the CBC. Huge demonstrations all over the world this weekend, tens of thousands in Edmonton, Calgary, Vancouver, Toronto, etc. Again, virtual media blackout. Oh, and for some reason the weigh scales were open on the highways. On Sunday. Haha Trudeau running real scared.

  9. I've actually given a ton of thought to this and to be perfectly honest I think a lot of the fault lies on what I'd say is "over-liberalization". I don't know how to explain it perfectly, but I think there's a lot to be said about how liberal governments have been ignorant/dismissive of more conservative viewpoints, specifically in rural/non-metro areas. I've lived in both over the years and it's like two different worlds sometimes just driving an hour away from Toronto. We can mock and ridicule a lot of the conspiracy nonsense that gets rambled about here, but there's a kernel of truth to some of the rage we're hearing. Things like excessive government bureaucracy (like the public sector's salaries rising faster than private, and their unions' power), over-reaching political correctness and public services that rural provincials pay for but don't have access to are all things that have contributed (I think) to a general sense of disenfranchisement. Cancel-culture and self-righteous outrage have (IMO) wildly overreached and gone well beyond keeping people safe and giving them fair opportunities. The conspiracy theorists aren't completely bullshitting us when they talk about the "woke mob" and how quickly and sometimes unfairly they'll judge and dismiss someone because they're not agreeing 100% with whatever the prevailing viewpoint of the day is. That doesn't excuse some of the stupider bullshit that some of them come up with, but when they see the "woke mob" overreact too many times, it's hardly surprising they grow resentful and mistrusting. The fact that such a sizeable part of Canada's population has convinced themselves that COVID is a conspiracy and that the vaccines are some sort of scheme is pretty damning commentary for how off-the-rails everything's been getting. For most of these folk, it's not even really about the vaccine. It's about being forced to do something that the government and media they can't trust is telling them to.

  10. Other mediums is right. I think that part of the reason that podcasts have overtaken radio is the fact that it's so completely merit-based. People don't get hired to do podcasts based on their popularity, or because they check all of the intersectionality boxes, they just start them up by themselves and then they sink or swim. And even if the CBC lucked out and hired a guy like Joe Rogan he'd be unceremoniously dumped at the first sign of 'controversy' anyways, and by controversy I mean 'the first time that he said anything worth listening to'. Leftist snowflakes think that unless a show blows sunshine up their arses 24/7 it needs to be cancelled and the CBC is as mamby pamby as a dithering butterfly.

  13. It’s time for governments to end the oppression. My colleagues, friends, staff, family, everyone I know feels like a dark cloud hangs over them. Their communities are broken. Nowhere to go and nothing to do. Even when we could briefly go to a bar or restaurant, people were divided from each other in cubicles. No extra-curricular activities. Churches and arenas half empty or shuttered. Children and adults staring endlessly at glass, alone in front of their computers. For what? We’ve done what we were told. We’ve taken the shots and warn the masks and watched businesses and people fall apart as our government racks up massive debt. Still the restrictions persist. End this madness. End all restrictions immediately. You have the resources to protect yourself from Covid. You can’t protect yourself from mandates and restrictions.

  14. Britain figured out that no amount of vaccination or suspension of freedoms would eliminate Covid, which has become a manageable endemic illness within the framework of pre-pandemic freedoms. To maintain restrictions and mandates is to maintain a draconian suspension of rights that causes more problems than it solves. It means we will have a certain amount of illness and death. It means adding hospital capacity. We’ve seen much more death in the not too distant pre-pandemic past. Adding capacity to our hospitals is well within our grasp. Treatments are improving. Britain and Ireland made the right move. https://apple.news/AOo2QBnTjReGGfvz6Tp190A

  15. First, not my country, not my flag and not my constitution. But in answer to your question, after thorough analysis, I have concluded they may not have wanted to testify. By the way, you referred to your "democracy." I have been forcefully informed on American forums that the United States is definitely not a democracy. It is a Republic. I know, I know, but it has something to do with some traditional get together with wolves and sheep. The Democrat Underground banned me before I could ask them about it.

  16. We’re already almost universally vaccinated. We can’t vaccinate much further. Are we to live restricted lives in masks forever? We have to accept the constant presence of Omicron. Let people make their own risk assessments and take precautions as they see fit. No coercion necessary. It wouldn’t improve our situation.

Is it just stupidity or deliberate raising of tensions by pushing a patently failed ideological agenda, when other countries are removing restrictions? I can't be certain any longer here.

  23. I think the obvious problem you have with your argument is that "the general public" are NOT held to the same standards as "the news media". See...Karen at Wallymart, or Hank the trucker, didn't study Journalism. Thus, I would not expect John Musselman at CTV to be able to drive a semi from coast to coast. He might be able to, but his effort would be more likely to end in a crash, than say Hank's daily efforts with an identical truck and task. RUMOURS...quite often have 'some' truth to them. For instance, the RUMOUR that some people on the internet have made...less that tasteful comments. Only someone who's lived his or her life in a complete bubble, would be surprised by this. And were the actual data analyzed, I'd bet there are tasteless infractions from both sides. But we don't know for sure because, our independent media chooses to not say such. And if the trusted journalist doesn't say it, or report it, it doesn't exist for many. Their rational would agree with the assumption...but argue against it till their blue in the fingertips...because John Musselman didn't report that. Instead, John chose to only report the disparaging internet chatter and also these "fringe" groups, in a crafted effort to present blame and shame on people who...Gawd friggin' forbid...actually support a removal of all current restrictions and mandates. He didn't mention that Karen at Wallymart has posted some pretty bloody outrageous crap as well. That wouldn't help his...goal. Which brings us, inevitably, back to the same ol' problem. Our "Journalists"...for the most part (hence the term 'MSM') don't sit down to type-up a report about any particular even AS IT HAPPENED without taking the opportunity to slightly warp WHAT HAPPENED to meet their particular point of view, or the point of view they've been told to present. This is nothing new. The media has been doing this, to some degree, all along. They choose to editorialize every report. Hell they teach that in the Journalism schools now. But its never been so...in your face. I have never experienced the level of pure vitriol...pure bias...and down right pure BS and lies...than I have from our "Free Press" of late.

  25. I think Trudeau is suffering from extreme imposter syndrome and we are witnessing a psychotic break. After a life of luxury and privilege, he has no baseline for personal success. Normal people take a loss and move on and put it in perspective. For him, this is the final proof that he is a failure. He is an imposter. He is not loved. He is not respected. He is not Prime Minister because of his unique talents. He is there because he was groomed to play a role and he is failing miserably. His country is in revolt. He is dangerous right now.

  26. I find nothing too radical about the man. He speaks from his heart and others can see that...many others. His detractors seem to have to invent stuff about him in order to smear him...my observation. And there are many others like him with their chunk of the media viewing audience. Sincere people trying hard to be heard while speaking their minds. The MSM and their politicos view that as war...war on their territory. How dare these rebels exist let alone broadcast. They must be crushed. So we'll see...

  27. It did scare the convoy. The death threats and wishes that have been leveled against anyone who doesn't support mandatory vaccinations have been building, inflamed by Trudeau. Some in the convoy have reported they feel a definite "cold shoulder" in Ontario. It's the first province they've gotten F fingers and stuff thrown at the rigs, etc. If there's more violence - it won't be from the truckers.

  28. The saddest part about this sort of inane rambling is the irony. You think that you're a red-pilled crusader of free thinking and that your perspective is open-minded, but you're just chanting conspiracy copypasta from your 4dchan echo-chambers. It's the same recycled ramblings from subject to subject too. The individual issue doesn't really matter. Whether it's vaccines, economic policy or anything else, it's just hysterical noise about communists, fascists, the MSM etc, and the folks who don't agree with you are "sheeple". It's all a lot of cringe and eyeroll.

  32. All the doctors and scientists that you reject - the ones who found success and saved thousands of patients with early treatments. Early treatments that Fauci withheld and thwarted so that he could get EUA for his fake vaccine. If I had covid, I'd take the doctor that was willing to give me early treatment that was proven successful in the majority of cases.....over the doctors you favour, who sent people home with NO treatment and waited for them to come back to the hospital, too late to save. I showed you proof that Fauci knew in 2015 that HCQ successfully treated SARS-Cov2, in fact he said it was both a cure and a vaccine. Then he proceeded to thwart all efforts to use it to treat SARS-Cov2, even going so far as destroying stockpiles of it and blacklisting all doctors who were using it successfully. What part of: Fauci could not allow any early treatments or he couldn't have gotten EUA to experiment on humans with his "vaccine".....don't you understand? The man is a murderer. And yes - it's estimated 500,000 Americans died because he withheld early treatment.

  35. Better stand WAY back, if they get as many trucks as some predict. A few tens of thousands? Even Americans are joining the convoy. I checked the gofundme. Just crossing $4M right now. It went up $300,000 since I got home from work. It's about 100,000 dollars/ hr. The biggest donors are actually companies, concrete and trucking. Some donating over $10k. This could be a historic event in the making.

  36. Why should people be vaccinated to drive across the country in a vehicle with 1 person in it? - People had to be vaccinated to fly to South Africa and they still brought covid here. - Approximately 300 fully vaccinated people died in Canada in the last month. If the vaccines stopped the spread, or stopped people from dying, or they were completely safe then it would be a no-brainer. It's ofer 3 on that list and you know it. The government has lied about covid and the vaccines too many times to expect people to just play along.

You heard my position, it's merely not the one you rehearsed in your mirror to argue against and you're soiling yourself over that. I'm not Canadian. Ya'll can manage Canada. Just like you get jack fuck all to say about what we do here in america. Why otherwise, that would be one nation exerting tyranny over another and we know how you hate tyranny, right? To refuse to do stupid human tricks for you is something you should expect from me. I spent over 3 decades in biomedical research and the drug hunting game in pharmaceutical, academic, CRO, and pharmaceutical-academic partnership settings. I assure you I cannot find a way in which to care less if you get vaxxed or not, die from COVID, or drink bleach and shove a light bulb up your ass or swallow horse de-wormer upon contracting COVID. My position is, you're no authority I would ever pay any attention to.

  43. The great thing about watching you implode on here is that anyone who reads these threads with a modicum of good sense will see how controlling and punitive you are. Its ridiculousness just affirms the importance of removing restrictions and restoring freedoms. Your pitch is unsupportable, even from the left. Even Bill Maher said that Omicron’s spread among the vaccinated has proven that vaccines are about protecting yourself, not others. Mandates are unnecessary overreach. Masks fall in the same category. We got vaccinated in order to drop restrictions, not to have both. The only way to get past restrictions and mandates is to drop them. The treatments and protections are there. It’s about political will. I’d say that politicians are having an increasingly hard time defending positions like yours.

  44. Over the past couple years you've heard politicians from all over use the platform "Build Back Better". You've heard this platform from Boris Johnson in Britain, Sleepy Joe Biden in the United States, Trudeau in Canada, New Zealand, the United Nations and other places. What exactly are we building? A society where you cant leave your homes past 10pm like in Quebec? Where you can't sit in a restaurant without injecting a foreign substance into your arm or access public transit or hold a job. Seems like a marriage between government and corporations where if you don't go along with the flavor of the day whether it be the climate change hoax, BLM, face rags, etc. you can't stay employed. What's next? Losing ability to use banks if you don't pledge your allegiance to the wokesters?

What sock boy doesn’t get is that there will never be enough vaccinations to end Covid, because the continuation of the pandemic has nothing to do with the actual health impacts of the virus anymore. Now we have to contend with additional inflation of trucking costs when inflation was already soaring. Dumb and irresponsible policies that will only raise the cost of living. End these ridiculous and ineffectual mandates and restrictions immediately.

  50. You guys do know that WMD include nukes, Chemical wpns, Bio wpns. And in Iraq tons upon tons of chemical wpns where found in various locations across the country. plus they also found chemical wpns production plants to make several types of nerve gases ( including VX), blister agent, blood agent, mustard agents, he had some of the worlds most dangerous chemical agents in the world. to which he used on the people of Iraq, Iran, and the Kurdish population. And while they did not find any nukes or nuclear material they did find trace amounts of radiation in some warehouses, just becasue they did not find any does not mean they did not exist... they are just now finding remnants of the Iraqi air force buried in the sand even today. I'm not saying Sadams nuke program did not exist, they already knew that it did, they just did not find any nuke material so it is neither proven or unproven. But chemical wpns were found in several dozen locations and lots of it...something else he denied having...
