  1. Listen to the vast majority of health experts, not the anti-everything theorists. Believe the science.
  2. No, you don't "own" the country in the sense you can occupy, blockade, and harm other citizens. You can protest where you don't interfere with other citizen's right to live and work. Once you start illegally blockading or occupying streets and cities and depriving other people of their liberty, jobs, and prevent them from going about their lives, you have become a criminal and deserve punishment. Democracy or protest does not mean you have the right to use coercion or force to try to get your way. Did your parents raise you to respect the laws of the land and rights of other people or not?
  3. Putin only has 6,000 nuclear missiles he is readying to fire. Nothing for people like you to be concerned about.
  4. Any nuclear strike would mean the end of civilization. There would be few survivors.
  5. From what I've seen, you don't accept any information anyone tries to give you on here; so there is that to consider too. Why would anybody attempt to explain anything to you on here? Your only purpose for being on here is to take a contrary view. You have a problem.
  6. Sounds like you need to go to school and get an education. Did you hear Putin the Russian leader has attacked Ukraine?
  7. I never said his nuclear weapons would be just for the Ukraine. I guess you haven't figured out the most basic thing; a dictator who does not believe in democracy and human rights is unpredictable and cannot be trusted in anything. His threat and putting his nuclear force on high alert means only one thing. The threat is directed to Europe, north America and our allies.
  8. The worst thing about this is if an insane man or a mentally unstable man has his finger on the nuclear button. If Putin is unstable or has psychological problems, lets hope and pray other saner heads in government or the military have the power to stop anything insane he wants to do such as start a nuclear war. The fact he would decide to invade the Ukraine is not a good sign of his mental condition. Does he think military force is the answer to everything?
  9. Some politicians in the U.S. are starting to question Putin's sanity. Former Secretary of State, Condolezza Rice, for instance said he does not seem to be the same Putin he was five years ago. He has put his nuclear forces on high alert, when there is no rational reason to do so. After 20 years in power, is he feeling threatened? Does he feel he may not be able to continue ruling the country as an absolute dictator? Does he fear the oligarchs around him? Does he feel that if the Ukraine invasion does not work out as he hoped, his job will be threatened? Is he panicking? We will eventually find out. Hopefully there will be no world war or nuclear war of any kind.
  10. I understand clearly what you said. You support the Communist countries and blame the U.S. You are a Communist dupe.. Putin is no different that Hitler. He is a war criminal and you are supporting him.
  11. Communist countries like Russia and China are totally untrustworthy. They can be brutal dictatorships. Putin has now put his nuclear regiment on high alert. The Ukraine found that western freedom and democracy are far preferable to being under the control of the barbaric dictators of Communist Russia. The Ukraine never went to war. It was entirely Putin's idea. The guy is a madman. He is also a threat to the whole world.
  12. No, they shoot them in apartment buildings with heavy weapons.
  13. "“If you look at the raw numbers and you don't index it by vaccine rates, then it looks like vaccinated people are having worse outcomes,” he told CTVNews.ca in a phone interview on Wednesday. “But really, it's because the sample size now is predominantly almost all vaccinated. Out of a total of about 4.15 million residents aged five and older, about 3.3 million have been vaccinated with at least two doses of the COVID-19 vaccine, while approximately 583,000 remain unvaccinated in Alberta. When taking into account the total number of fully vaccinated and unvaccinated people, the death rate associated with each group is vastly different. Provincial data shows the death rate is about 56.5 per 100,000 people among those who are unvaccinated and five years of age or older. Meanwhile, the death rate for people who are vaccinated with two doses drops to 12.5 per 100,000 people. Those vaccinated with three doses had a death rate of 13.3 per 100,000, however, a majority of these deaths were among patients who were at least 80 years of age, a group that is especially vulnerable to COVID-19-related hospitalization and death, said Dr. David Kelvin, a professor in Dalhousie University’s department of microbiology and immunology in Halifax" COVID-19: Unvaccinated patients dying at higher rates | CTV News
  14. You never had time to read the article which also proves you are not interested in facts.
  15. You select one part and ignore the rest which just proves my point. The facts prove vaccinations reduced hospitalization and deaths for all age groups. All the above sentence is saying is "older patients have increased risk of hospitalization and deaths". Everyone knows that. You neglected to mention the fact vaccination has proven to reduce the number of hospitalizations and deaths for all age groups. You deliberately ignore or misrepresent the facts.
  16. The subject and comments on this forum is a prime example of how social media is being used by anti-vaxxers, anti-restrictions, and conspiracy theorist people to spread misinformation. To get a proper picture of the number of deaths of unvaccinated versus vaccinated it is necessary to take into account the percentage of people who have been fully vaccinated in the survey. The death rate among the unvaccinated in the group mentioned below is four times as high as in a group of vaccinated with two doses. Quote Provincial data shows the death rate is about 56.5 per 100,000 people among those who are unvaccinated and five years of age or older. Meanwhile, the death rate for people who are vaccinated with two doses drops to 12.5 per 100,000 people. Those vaccinated with three doses had a death rate of 13.3 per 100,000, however, a majority of these deaths were among patients who were at least 80 years of age, a group that is especially vulnerable to COVID-19-related hospitalization and death, said Dr. David Kelvin, a professor in Dalhousie University’s department of microbiology and immunology in Halifax. Older patients have an increased risk of both hospitalization and death as a result of COVID-19, said Kelvin. Age remains a risk factor whether or not someone is vaccinated, he said, as it often comes with a higher chance of developing comorbidities.

  17. From what I heard, they are unfreezing accounts of of yesterday. People who made small donations for the most part were not frozen. The couple that were likely were unfrozen by now.
  18. "1 Let every soul be subject unto the higher powers. For there is no power but of God: the powers that be are ordained of God. {ordained: or, ordered} 2 Whosoever therefore resisteth the power, resisteth the ordinance of God: and they that resist shall receive to themselves damnation. 3 For rulers are not a terror to good works, but to the evil. Wilt thou then not be afraid of the power? do that which is good, and thou shalt have praise of the same: 4 For he is the minister of God to thee for good. But if thou do that which is evil, be afraid; for he beareth not the sword in vain: for he is the minister of God, a revenger to execute wrath upon him that doeth evil. 5 Wherefore ye must needs be subject, not only for wrath, but also for conscience sake. 6 For for this cause pay ye tribute also: for they are God’s ministers, attending continually upon this very thing. " Romans 13:1-6 KJV "“Sanctify them through thy truth: thy word is truth.” John 17:17 KJV " 36 He that believeth on the Son hath everlasting life: and he that believeth not the Son shall not see life; but the wrath of God abideth on him." John 3:36 KJV Do you have eternal life or do you have the wrath of God abiding on you?
  19. People who consistently break the law, harass and harm other citizens who are just going about their lives, and who attempt to overthrow the democratically-elected government don't deserve the time of day. They are seditionists and anarchists. Our country has been very lenient with them so far and most of them have escaped any consequences for their illegal and seditious actions. Seditious speech is also questionable as to whether it is actually legal.
  20. I don't support hate mongering. That's a lie. You know this whole convoy protest has caused me to withdraw my support for the conservatives. This kind of issue never came up until now. So the Conservative Party does not appear to be the same as it was in the past. That basically leaves me with no political party to support because I don't like any of them. But I definitely won't support a party that supports a law-breaking group. The Conservative MPs are completely wrong about all this. If you don't have law and order, you don't have a country. If you allow a group whose avowed purpose is to overthrow the democratic system, you don't have a country. So you are dead wrong. Not supporting anarchy and law-breaking is not hatred. It is just common sense. If you don't like the Covid restrictions you can protest peacefully without breaking the laws. If you want to break the laws to try to get your way and harm other people, I'm out of it. You're on your own and will pay the consequences, if not in this life, in the next.
  21. Any country who desires unity must have it based on the laws that exist and civility. Without that, there is not going to be agreement. If a group's goal is to overthrow the government or demand things that are totally contrary to what the democratically-elected government is doing, how can there ever be agreement or unity? Obviously the ball is in the hands of those who make such unreasonable, and illegal demands. We have a democratically-elected Parliament which is the avenue to change things, not by an unelected group trying to use illegal means and coercion to force their demands on the country. Where is the common ground with such demands?
  22. What we have been witnessing the last few weeks is chaos, illegal acts, and attempted subversion of our democratically-elected government. People may not agree with everything the government does, but we all have an obligation to support law and order, civility, and a united country. Without that we descend into chaos, division, and harm to countless fellow Canadians. Surely that is not something we want to happen. We should have learned that lesson from studying the history of Europe over the past 500 years. It has been a period of unprecedented wars, division, chaos, and death. Lets find ways to work together and heal our divisions. We can disagree on certain things, but there should be a limit to how far we push those disagreements. Law-breaking under the guise of peaceful protesting is not the answer. That drags us down the road of harm and anarchy. We have seen enough of that lately to know that. Our leaders have not set the best example either. By their poor choice of words and thoughts, they have generated more hostility and division. This is not the answer.
  23. That is true, but the Ottawa police department was never designed, equipped, or manned for such an event as the occupation of Ottawa. They could never be expected to deal with that themselves. They could have arrested a lot more people here and there and tried to set up blockades on one or two streets, but they were correct in saying that doing that could have provoked anarchy and a massive backlash and criminality. They were simply not the right kind of force to control it. That was the problem. They could do nothing except keep a low profile and try to prevent random crimes. Then the provincial and federal governments were slow to respond to requests for help and took three weeks to finally get their act together. It finally took the O.P.P., the RCMP, and police form other parts of Canada who were flown in, to finally bring the occupation to an end.
  24. No, I asked you a legitimate question. You created this topic but now don't want to answer a question about it. Figures. So you simply want to rant about our system of government and don't want to engage in serious discussion. You don't want anyone to question your claims. You are frivolously wasting everyone's time on here.
