Yes, yes indeed. Causes.
Item: went out to do some business today, stopped for sushi, went to Home Depot to get a lawn chair.
At the business, I had to call the company and have the person I was seeing come out into the parking lot to get me. Then I was escorted to a boardroom through empty halls, and seated across from the gentleman I went to see, separated by a large sheet of Lexan thick enough to stop a bullet. Masks mandatory, of course. This is Ontario, you know.
Left there, went to Fortinos supermarket to get sushi. I waltzed into the store, chose my meal, paid for it and left, as normal. Masks, of course.
Went to Home Depot. It was one of the only stores open in a sea of Big Boxes with empty parking lots. Only the outdoor section was open, the rest of the store was closed off with crime-scene tape. No lawn furniture in the outdoor plant section, of course, so wasted trip.
This shit has been going on since March 2020. Even the dumbest hick in the world can see that if I can shop freely at Fortino’s and Costco, keeping Home Depot mostly closed is lunacy. Closing other “non-essential” stores is double lunacy. Even the most ridiculous Karen out there can see that a sheet of Lexan in the middle of a boardroom table will do exactly nothing to stop an airborne virus.
Item: vaccines. Canada doesn’t have any. We are not making them here, and there are no plans to make them here. Really. Meanwhile, you can’t turn on a TV or a radio (or drive down the road, there’s electronic signs) without having a GET VACCINATED!!!!!!!11!!!! message screamed at you.
Item: immigration. While screaming that people are ignoring the lockdown rules and blaming the public for the continued spread of WuFlu, and braying that Double Mutant Indian WuFlu is a thing… the government is letting flights from India, S. Africa, Europe and etc. land in Canada with no testing of passengers, no quarantine, no nothing. But a Canadian flying back from Florida? QUARANTINE!!!! The dumbest hick in the world can see that’s insane.
Item: doctor friends in Florida say the WuFlu is not much of a thing there. Florida is God’s Waiting Room, remember? All the old geezers in North America go to Florida.
Item: housing prices. Most expensive in North America, right here in Canada. Higher than Silicon Valley. Higher than London England. The federal minister in charge of the housing portfolio admitted, on TV, that Canada will keep seeing these highest ever prices, because they want to encourage foreign buyers to buy shit in Canada. So rich guys from Germany and Arabia and China load up on Canadian real estate while Canadians are priced right out of the market.
Item: fuel costs are going up-up-up here in the Demented Dominion. I see ever-increasing numbers of rural houses with impressive wood piles out here in Hooterville. Mine’s not impressive, but I have one. What do you think it means for a society like ours when people start going back to burning wood for heat? Are those guys feeling optimistic about the future?
Bill C-10, currently before the House of Commons, would give the government the power to regulate any content you generate and post online. Your video ranting on Twitter, dancing on TikTok, or pontificating on Facebook would be treated as a radio or television broadcaster.
Yes, the Trudeau government’s answer to all of the above is to shut down the ability to comment on the Internet.
Fix the vaccine situation? No. Make The Phantom shut up about it? Yes. That’s what they’re going to do.
I suspect that this bill is directed at Rebel News, which has been exposing and embarrassing Trudeau and company for quite some time now. They managed to get Sun TV kicked off the airwaves, but it turned into Rebel on the internet and the CRTC can’t get them there. But they will come for The Phantom Soapbox soon enough.
Item: Have you guys looked at the Nebula and Hugo nominees? NK Jemisin’s entry basically calls for the elimination of Whiteness (that’s being generous, she may really be after the elimination of Whites.) There’s a few more equally bent in the nominations. Meanwhile they’re ripping down billboards advertising Harry Potter because JK Rowling mentioned that women are women and men aren’t.
Sarah said: “And the problem is because they have captured the centers of information that they, themselves listen to and believe, they are completely unaware that the rest of us are looking at reality and going “you’re out of your minds.””
I’ve been looking at gun control since Kim Campbell’s bill C-17 in 1991 and saying that they’re out of their minds ever since I started. It is the finest in head/ass insanity, propped up by lazy assholes lying with charts and calling it “science.” I’ve caught them at it so many times I don’t even try any more, there’s no point. You can’t have a scientific discussion with a deliberate liar.
I’m late to the party. Barry Goldwater was screaming about this shit in 1964.(Side note, nobody ever said anything about it in Canada until lately. The control of the media here is 100%.)
But here we are, 2021. Now Joe Average Canadian, the biggest, thickest hick in the world, finally sees what Goldwater was screaming in 1964 and what The Phantom has been saying since 1991. The government acts always and only for the convenience and prosperity of… the government. Joe Average Canadian finally understands that he is a SUCKER and has been played his whole f-ing life by a bunch of scammers. Played like a Stradivarius.
Joe Average Canadian is pissed.
But he’s not going to do shit. He’s going to sit there, angry, and do nothing. Until he gets hungry, and it is cold out, and there’s no fuel for his furnace, and there’s no food at the store. Then he will finally get off his huge pampered ass and go complain.
Oh and by the way. In case anyone didn’t know, or forgot, and for all you -idiot- Lefties out there who lurk here at Sarah’s: Michael Foucault was a PEDO and child rapist. A prolific one. No, you don’t get a link, Lefties. Look it up.
