What Moe said about the origin of the convoy was a lie too. It was orgnaized by far right hate groups as an insurrection, and they sucked anti-waxxers in for extra goons and cover. Moe gives them cover.

Plague Update: Worst Among Us
I practically couldn’t believe this, except I know BoJo is not a fine bloke.
Man too stupid to realize he brainstormed how to commit suicide on live TV, with the intention to instead calm the public down, has additional ideas regarding how to handle a more contagious virus:
And on the subject of brain-dead idiots in charge of governments, Premier Moe went on the radio with Saskatchewan’s Shock Joke, err Jock, to wax poetic about the days when restaurants didn’t have screening for irresponsible plague rats like himself.
Every other time Moe reopened Saskatchewan it was an unqualified success, so why wouldn’t the next time be as awesome?
Oh, right, the thousands* of dead people.
*Mortality during the pandemic has been about 4000 people more than the standard death rate.
What does it take for newspaper columnists, who don’t write for the Prairie Dog Mag, to speak frankly about the Sask Government deciding to let more people die? We don’t find out, in the next link:
Plague Update: Moevid
Plague Premier Moe has COVID-19. He spent the last few days improperly using a substandard mask in public crowds, wiping his bare nose, and coughing.
Media Making Moe Not A Monster
Oh, I guess not, instead the focus is on making Saskatchewan a nation within a nation. I guess Mandryk was wrong.
Plague Update: POStmedia Shows Its Soul
How ghoulish is our national post anyway? That’s kind of rhetorical, because we all know now they’d rather see bodies piled high in the streets like in Ecuador, than risk giving a poor person a hand-up during the worst global economic and health crisis of perhaps a over half a century.
People will be dying by the scores in the second wave we all don’t want to accept is coming, regardless of what we all are likely to do.
Moe still plans to force some frivolous things open in early May while our R-naught has dipped below 1. It’ll jump back over 1 most likely in a few days or weeks, meaning that each infected person will on average spread the virus to more than 1 other person.
Plague 2020: Life On The Inside
The WHO’s warnings to close schools at the end of February were accurate.
Unsurprising to me, the climate crisis Deniers are out in full force trying to deny scientific pandemic response since their beloved oil markets have tanked completely. It’s not enough for them to kill us with air pollution and climate change, now they want people to get infected with a virus that kills between 15% and .5% of those afflicted. I blocked National Post on Twitter for publishing Lawrence Solomon’s despicable Trump-esque call to return to dangerous work.
I haven’t been away from home since Monday, and won’t likely for weeks from now.
#StayHome, and if you go anywhere, don’t touch your face, keep 2m distance from everyone you’re not already living with, and wash your hands upon returning.

Hypocrisy It Isn’t
Notable climate crisis musician and activist Laura Stewart in the Leader Post explaining why climate activists aren’t hypocrites for pressuring governments to take action they cannot personally:
Climate protesters aren’t hypocrites
Regina’s climate protesters are not hypocrites. They demand government action on problems their personal actions can’t touch.
Critics say, “Pick up litter.” Some protesters do that. Some attempt zero-waste living. But of Saskatchewan’s 76 megatonnes of emissions, the “Waste and Others” sector makes up only three per cent.
Yes, many protesters bike, walk, or bus to the marches. But “Passenger Transportation” produces just six per cent of emissions. And it’s a nine-hour bike ride to the legislature from my home town.
What personal actions could drive down the 34 per cent of emissions from “Oil and Gas” production? During one march, a critic suggested turning off the gas to my house, but that’s consumption — counted in the “Buildings” sector at only four per cent.
How about reducing the 19 per cent of emissions from “Electricity”? Eliminating all residential electricity would cut only about three per cent of overall emissions. And critics complain about protesters’ cell phones.
“Agriculture” produces 22 per cent of emissions — and $13 billion in exports. Many protesters avoid eating meat — another partial solution. But about nine per cent of Saskatchewan’s overall emissions come from crop production, because it releases nitrous oxide, a greenhouse gas nearly 300 times worse than carbon dioxide.
We need government actions to make high emissions costly, make lowering emissions pay, and make zero emissions an affordable choice. Otherwise, we subsidize our present prosperity at the expense of our children’s future.
The most important personal action you can take to help solve the climate emergency? Talk about it.
Laura Stewart, Regina
This is a subject that I’ve discussed years ago too.
Podcast on Sunday
Jeff Cliff interviewed me for his Facebook Live stream on Sunday. We discussed Saskatchewan politics, media, blogging, censorship, and the Amazon Fires.
For instance, I can link to Facebook, but people trying to link here from Facebook are told my blog doesn’t meet Facebook’s “Community Standards”. If you can figure out why, that would be quite the feat.
Also noticed that http://www.abandonedstuff.com isn’t redirecting to this WordPress address right now, so I don’t know if that’s a permanent problem introduced by WordPress, or something else.
Transition From Coal Ignored By SaskParty
People who know what a Luddite the Premier of Saskatchewan is, knows the answer to my rhetorical question.
