Americans Riot For Equality

ICE T sums it up for people who don’t understand the looting:

Canada lacks a moral high ground in this struggle, and is getting worse. Check out the Winnipeg Police defending their purchase of a “tank” a few days ago if you want.

Here’s Utah police randomly shoving an old man to the ground for being on a sidewalk they wanted to clear faster than he could move.

In the past days CNN has been arrested, and MSNBC has been fired upon in Minneapolis.

All this not only stems from the unprovoked police killing of George Floyd, but from hundreds of years of racial violence in America that has never ended.

Plague Update: Are We Going To Give Up?

WHO wants people to be aware that there’s no assured victory against COVID-19. I still think it’s possible to eradicate it, but it will take a global effort that surpasses what we’ve tried thus far.

We, for one thing, definitely have to figure out what’s going on in cases of apparent reinfection:

Plague Update: Frugality Saves Itself

It’s become trendy to be thrifty. Frugal, even.
There’s always been a case for being frugal, but now it’s more apparent to a society facing supply chain disruptions from an unsure labour market and contracted globalism.

Have you started a Victory Garden this year? When there were social events, did you ever attend a Repair Cafe, to fix your slightly broken electronic device, or sew a tear in a jacket (like I have at the Regina Public Library)? As the article points out, there are many ways to be frugal, and not all of them lead to actual hording which obviously needs to be avoided for various reasons.

Plague Update: ReOpen Rant

You’ve probably got friends on that gosh awful Facebook website who’re clamouring to go back to normal. They want the certainty of a steady paycheque, the regular services, and plentiful entertainment options that Regina offers in a typical year. (You know how the easily bored are always saying there’s so much to do in Regina?)

Every one of them who argues to re-open Saskatchewan on the same day we have our single biggest outbreak increase, is a GD partisan/idiot. They might be bigger idiots than Scott Moe is, because they believe what a GD moron like the Premier is telling them to think.

They want to play Russian Roulette with themselves and their friends and family, and get out there to destroy the benefits of #SocialDistancing that made Saskatchewan ahead of the curve for once. It’s only a 3% chance that someone infected will die, give or take a few percent on factors aside from age that we don’t even know with certainty yet. And there’s only about a 50% chance of getting infected if it sweeps across the province quickly enough. Maybe those odds look good to them, but remember, they’re GD idiots, and they aren’t thinking.

Wait a year, and you get a vaccine. Some gratification is delayed. We may have other options before the vaccine, but right now, you COVIDIOTS are putting my life at risk. There are better options to fix your economic worries.

This is a first draft, so if it sounds harsh, it probably is. This isn’t an attempt to get the idiots to change their minds. They can’t; not without their political string-pullers helping them, anyway.

#StayHome to #StaySafe.

Plague Update: Death For Dollars

The reckless and callous Sask Party prepares on Monday to start the calculated risk AKA killing process. Because golf is literally more important than some guy’s grandma, amirite?

Slow Moe isn’t alone. The Quebec Premier, and Alberta’s are both itching to get things back to “normal” as quickly as possible, even though the normal we were living with has a shelf life of less than #EightYears anyway before it has to change more dramatically than we’ve experienced over the last 6 weeks.
