There’s even a yellow lily too. The white peonies are almost all done.
It’s hard to deny that the Sask Party could be a cult.
YouTuber David Doel was saying all the cops had to do to win mass public support was to come out and do nothing. They couldn’t even do nothing. They threatened charities, faked being poisoned, all while slashing tires, shooting eyes, gassing people, clubbing them, breaking old men’s heads, and playing the victims.
India and China are in a shooting war this week. Why? I’ve no idea.
Canada lost its bid for a UN Security Council seat. Why? Again, not sure. A friend tells me that Trudeau’s racist blackface incidents from decades ago played a factor.
The NDP leader was kicked out of Parliament for the day for calling a racist Bloc MP a racist, after he stopped unanimous consent to examine systemic racism in the RCMP.
Police slashing tires?!
The protests and rallies rage on.
First power outage in weeks, and it’s lasted at least 10 minutes as of writing this. There was heavy rain this morning, but it let up quickly.
Getting word that the power outage is due to damage from a fire and won’t be fixed until after 5pm.
Yesterday, friends noted how dry it has been the last few years; I’ve been rained on less than a handful of times while commuting to or from work. That isn’t a concern this year, as I’m working from home.
The protests rage on in the USA, as the 1% cower behind their angry and violent police mobs. Police have been shooting people in the face, in an apparent homage to the Dicktatorial Cheney. A homeless man in a wheelchair was bleeding from his forehead after police assaulted him. A more famous incident in Buffalo had an older man go to hospital with a serious head injury as officers shoved him backward. The 2 who touched him were suspended and the 57 other piggies went wee wee wee half the way home, resigning from the special goon squad, while remaining paid officers. Their leader announced that the cops were just following orders to leave the injured man unconscious on the pavement/sidewalk.
Just following orders!
A photojournalist lost an eye to cops shooting it out.
Also in Minneapolis, journalists were beaten and pepper sprayed as they fled the violent cop mob.
The American police are out of control, but in Canada there was another murder of an Indigenous woman by an officer just days ago.
The PM was kneeling in solidarity, but it seems like more of an empty gesture when he fails to use his real power. It’s no different from when he marched in Greta’s climate rally while pushing ahead with a doomsday pipeline project.
His 20 seconds of silence response to Trump’s gassing of protesters to get his upside down bible photo op, was not well recieved for a similar reason. One time for show, but now he needs to help people hurt by the Republicans.
The end game for this may be no change, but it’s looking like the start of another Occupy Wall Street level movement. Maybe another American revolution.
The garden is showing increased signs of life, with peas, spinach, beans, and more all sprouting. My potato towers today are showing obvious signs of early success.
The United States has been led by a war criminal, and by a now open fascist since I’ve been 20.
Dr. Cornell West is right, America is a failed social experiment.
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.
CAF Snowbirds were over Regina and Saskatoon today on their trip to Cold Lake, Alberta.
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:
