Row Row Row Your Boat

Gently off a cliff,
Throw the women overboard,
Republicans want a tiff.

The Trump Supreme Court overturned Roe v. Wade, which for half a century put an end to most low-quality abortions in the United States. The Handmaid’s Tale gets ever closer to looking like a documentary, instead of a horror novel/movie about the decline of the American empire into a theocratic, dystopia. I feel bad for American women; most don’t deserve the terrible consequences Republicans/Christofascists want for them.

Maybe Democrat supporters will realize their party is too wimpy to do anything useful. It’s too corporate-owned to matter.

Plague Update: PM Trudeau Has COVID-19 Again

The PM got COVID by going to the Americas summit in the USA recently.

Gee, what could he have done better to protect himself? Maybe not speak moistly into the faces of world leaders 3 days ago and all last week?

Top Story of June 10, 2022? Former President Trump Tried a Coup

There’s no question Trump’s insurrection attempt on January 6th, 2021, was a coup that failed.

Bad Driver or Hate Crime? RCMP says “impatient”

The RCMP put out a disgraceful press release following a vehicle attack on First Nation people rallying near a Residential School site.

Can’t Stop, Won’t Stop, Moe Problem

What the dickens is wrong with Saskatchewan’s prominent political Moe family? It was less than 3 months ago that his truck was impounded in British Columbia where his son drove it so badly. Decades before then, Scott Moe killed Joanne Balog with his truck by not stopping it at a stop sign. Moe says he regrets one day, that day. I guess he doesn’t regret the other 2 days he was driving drunk, even though he might consider them among his “lot of mistakes”.

“Moe calls situation around impounded truck a ‘personal matter'”

“Premier Scott Moe said this was a time he was called to support family and friends”

How does he support his family:

He pardons them from minor traffic violations that mimic his own violation that cost a life.

Ford Has Hamilton Police Arrest Peaceful Satirist Lawyer At His Campaign Rally

This is an example of police state behaviour, and Ford should be punished.

Switch to Wind, Water, Solar, and Save Billions

$2B saved since Ukraine war

Wind and solar power plants generated 46.3 terawatt-hours of electricity between May 1, 2021 and April 30, 2022, the data [in Turkey] showed.

“Without these power plants, underutilized gas-fired plants or coal power plants relying on imports would have had to run in order to compensate for them,” the report added.

“Assuming that all 46.3 TWh power was generated by gas-fired plants, this would mean wind and solar power replaced $7 billion extra gas imports during that 12-month period.””

W Gaffes Again

The Republican Party didn’t become disgusting when Trump came to power, it’s been terrible for over 20 years. How can you tell? W Bush just confessed to knowing the Iraq War was wrong, during one of his infamous public speaking gaffes. Obama’s Democrats letting him skate away from responsibility for the deaths of over a million people has inspired Biden’s Democrats to do the same for Trump who has also caused the deaths of over a million Americans by mishandling the COVID-19 pandemic so badly. And the GOP is supported by Fox News which is using the xenophobic expression “illegal babies”.

Plague Update: Doug Ford Broke Quarantine Law

Liberals might be happy to learn that OPC leader Doug Ford has been privately prosecuted with breaking federal quarantine law. Trial is pending.

They may be less excited to learn that Justin Trudeau should face similar prosecution for breaking the same law in the same manner. Another who should be charged gave this excuse for their breaking of the public safety measure: “He also noted that the press conference was not a public setting.” Imagine that a ‘private’ press conference.

One of the law profs behind the prosecution of Ford has made waved on Twitter previously.

I think it would be easy to find other Premiers like Moe who’ve broken the quarantine law too. Wasn’t Moe just gallivanting around Europe and the Middle East?

David Milgaard Dies

A man who helped define the Canadian justice system as deeply flawed, has died at age 69. David was sent to jail for a murder that he didn’t commit. The real killer later went to jail for other killings, and was proven the killer with the advancement of DNA evidence decades after the killing. David got out, and reportedly spent his time as a free man assisting others who’d been wrongly convicted of crimes.
