Saturday Morning Confusion About COVID!

Don't tell me it's not the "Chinese Flu!" All the "woke" and "P.C." crowd can stick it up their ass as far as I'm concerned! 

We've had these too:

NameDateSubtype
Spanish flu1918–20H1N1
Asian flu1957–58H2N2
Hong Kong flu1968–69H3N2
1977 Russian flu1977–79H1N1

We've also had "bird flu" and "swine flu" and and the "black death" and God only knows what else..., so don't get sensitive about "Chinese" flu!

Let's line up all our coughing Peking ducks in a row and look at the facts kids!

Is it a coincidence that the COVID pandemic started in "Yah Who" China in the same area that they have a high security laboratory where they are experimenting with mean, nasty, terrible viruses?

No!

Is it a coincidence that China won't give out any info about what they were doing there around the end of 2019!

No!

Is is a coincidence that 3 or 4 workers in the lab had to be hospitalized in November of 2019 with "flu-like" symptoms?

No!

What this all boils down to folks is a near certainty about not only where the bug started......., but when it started as well! (Mid November 2019)

The hardest things to do in Canada

Allan: 

I think many Canadians will agree with me on this one. These days, one of the hardest things to do in Canada is simply getting a well-paying job with benefits and forging a future for yourself.

I suppose I’m lucky in that I have a decent job — not the greatest job ever, but it works for me and provides me with what I need. But two things have happened in Canada during the past 35-or-so years:

1. The cost of living has absolutely skyrocketed and owning a home will literally be impossible for many
2. Salaries have all but completely stagnated

Growing up in Canada in the 1980s, my dad had an average job with an average salary working as a salesman. My mother was a stay-at-home Mum. 

We were a family of four living in a nice house in the suburbs that was paid off, we had two cars in the driveway and we took at least one nice holiday a year. 

My brother and I both played hockey and we had full sets of equipment. At one point, my parents even considered putting my brother and me in private schools.

Try living that sort of lifestyle today in a major Canadian city as a family of four living on one parent’s “average income.” 

It would be everybody crammed into a two-bedroom apartment, one car, no holidays and certainly no private schooling for the kids.

Today, I know people in their 40s and 50s living with roommates in Toronto and Vancouver, simply because they want to live in a safe neighbourhood and don’t want to fork over upwards of 50% of their income to pay rent.

Times have indeed changed here.

OLYMPUS HAS FALLEN!

 This is NOT how you take a tour of the Capital!



Name That Tune!

 Working as a radio consultant I am currently working on a playlist of songs that will appeal to a 35+ audience (Boomers and Gen X) and there are a lot of songs that I have to listen to in order to either..., refresh my memory..., or categorize them as a certain type of song..., so needless to say I run into a whole mess of stuff that is unacceptable to my target audience!

About an hour ago I was reviewing 6 songs by a certain artist and none of them did anything for me..., until I got to the last song on the list! This was one I immediately liked and although it was rather unfamiliar to me it was still a good tune for the "Love Songs at Night" program and I was almost about to add it to the list when I realized it was the soundtrack for the commercial THAT RAN BEFORE THE SONG! 

That's when I decided it was time for a coffee break!

Winners of the Day!

 Today's prize goes to two people..., first of all, Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger who artfully resisted efforts by President Donald Drumpf on Saturday to overturn the results of the November election in an hour-long phone conversation that sounded more like a mafia Don telling one of his underlings to toe the line!

During the telephone conversation, Raffensperger kept discounting Trump's claims of a crooked election and kept repeating that everything was done according to election laws..., and there was no funny business going on..., so Drumpf couldn't get him to cook the books about the election results!

THEN:

There was  Gabriel Sterling, Georgia’s voting system implementation manager, who also spent an hour on national TV today going over every one of Drumpf's claims of fraud and misrepresentation in the election as well!


Between these two men, the American people got a good look at just how stupid and corrupt Donald Trump really is..., although I don't think this will make much difference to Drumpf's base!

The way I see it anyway!

Saturday Morning Confusion: Why do some people like Canada more than the U.S?

 I got this question sometime over the last few days and on top of Mr. Smith's reasons some people prefer Canada to 'The States' I have a few thoughts of my own that occurred to me as I was reading his answer! I will put these at the bottom!

Here are some of the reasons why:

  • Canada places more emphasis on quality of life than the U.S. does. For instance, Canadians get more paid holiday/vacation time, as well as mandatory paid maternity leaves for workers.
  • Gun control and lower crime rates in Canada. I hate to harp on this one, but it’s true.
  • Universal healthcare in Canada. Canadians and immigrants to Canada will never go bankrupt — or even receive a bill — because of a medical emergency.
  • Culturally, Canada is much more liberal than the U.S. Canada was one of the first countries to legalize same-sex marriage, and we’re cool with nudity and swearing on TV (provided it’s done past 9 pm). In Canada teenagers can drink alcohol (at 18/19), and, come October, you will be able to legally possess and use cannabis in Canada.
  • Religion: Like in Western Europe, religion does not play a major role in Canadian society and it stays out of politics.

O.K. Here goes: Canada is a country of MODERATION while the United States is a country of EXCESS!

There doesn't seem to be any sort of 'governor' in American culture, society or politics as demonstrated by the election of Donald Drumpf to the office of President! (He would NEVER have been elected here!)

Other examples would be the 'wild west' attitude prevalent in most sections of U.S. society as best exemplified in the book: "The United States of Excess." Gluttony and the Dark Side of American Exceptionalism. By Robert Paarlberg.

I guess Canada and the United States can best be defined by their motto's: 

"Life, Liberty and the pursuit of happiness" - U.S.

"Peace, order and good government" - Canada

The way I see it anyway!
