    got shot #1 of Pfizer today. I can feel it working. My 5G microchip game is already way stronger and I have this weird impulse to go mow Bill Gates' lawn (he lives across the lake from me)

I removed all air fresheners from the vehicle and double-checked my registration status (Daunte Wright), and ensured my license plates were visible (Lt. Caron Nazario). I will be careful to follow all traffic rules (Philando Castille), signal every turn (Sandra Bland), keep the radio volume low (Jordan Davis), and won't stop at a fast food chain for a meal (Rayshard Brooks). I'm too afraid to pray (Rev. Clementa C. Pickney) so I just hope the car won't break down

    Fox News wants the right to spread false information and not be libel for what come afterwards, Republicans want to suppress voters and be a minority ruling party, police want to kill people and not be held accountable that's a hell of a country they got down south

    Hmm I don't think this is accurate, I think the 6 months thing is because that is how long it has been studied. As in still good after 6 months. Probably see still effective at 12 months when they have studied these for a year.

  9. 1. Where did I say it wasn't? 2. When have I mentioned the color of someone's skin? Maybe it's the timeline that isn't getting through to you. I'm not talking about during a sentencing process/court case etc. I'm talking about after all of that. The criminal has been caught, the criminal has been sentenced....then as a society/charity/non profit/police force/social programs etc etc. You can examine what lead to the crime. Example: I worked in a neighborhood that had an incident happen. Incident was, after school a group of kids picked on another kid, this continued on for weeks...l

    Couldn't agree with this more. Last year when they shut my business down, I was all for the good of the people. Being in the event industry I'm completely fed up. Enough is enough. Get the vaccines out. I'm beyond frustrated. I understand people's concerns but most of the people saying we need to tighten up or continue with heavy restrictions are the same people's financial well being isn't being wrecked beyond belief. Sorry. I know this may come across as inconsiderate but this ain't ebola. 8 billion people and 3 million deaths world wide and those numbers are likely

    There's also a story about people in Manitoba who were together during a pandemic. During the first lockdown, most people bought in and the restrictions worked. During second the lockdown, people began to realize: That travel was not allowed unless you were flying. That it was mostly big box retailers who were allowed to stay open. I mean, come on, Dollorama sells very few essentials. I could go on all day... This and other exceptions led to people seeking out loopholes for themselves. In the third lockdown - like it or not - there's going to be more people

  16. You really are obtuse aren't you? Get off of this punishing people is all that matters kick and look around. There are countless examples of poor populations being over represented in prisons and committing crimes... but we are supposed to believe that these people all are just bad people? There is no systemic reason people turn out they way they do? There are tons of studies about nature vs. Nurture this really shouldn't even be a debate at this point. The only debate is how much a person wants to do about trying to address these issues.

    america is a madhouse, the daily shootings, bombings, rapes, police executions of citizens, Nazi news network, environmental catastrophe, greed. saw a cctv video, woman unhappy with service at drive through pulls out a pistol and starts shooting through the service window. happens every day all over down there.

    Our family doctor is running a vax clinic this Saturday. To most of the above: my point is that more people are protected from severe outcomes - which should be the primary concern.

    Yup, just another veil for flat out bigotry. Stuff like the "great replacement theory" is simply an extension of the so-called need to protect and hold power for "victimized" white people.

  24. Repeal the Indian Act. That would be a great first step to helping indigenous people out of poverty. When you don't/can't own the house and property you live on when living on reserve it becomes very difficult to build assetts and accumulate wealth both personally and from generation to generation.

  25. it's sad that the entity that holds the exclusive rights to televise the CFL can't find value in promoting the product... if they are claiming that the current numbers don't support inclusion then not including them will do nothing to grow those numbers... it's like they've given up... on the other hand, maybe it speaks to their confidence in there being a 2021 season... either way it's disappointing...

  26. So I threw out some questions a short while ago on MLSE’s possible intentions and if the Toronto media had any play in this. Following up, here is a snippet from the Rod Paterson podcast and some Twitter responses: Any thoughts on this from anyone?

  30. It's not about taking their background into account when considering punishment...ITS NOT ABOUT EXCUSES. ITS NOT ABOUT PUNISHMENT. ITS ABOUT PREVENTION. No one thinks they shouldn't be punished, they should be. It's understanding how they got to a point where they murder, and how we can put things in place/fix things/change things etc etc so the next person who is in a similar situation won't make that choice. In terms of imprisonment, our society whether you like it or not very rarely sends someone to a true life in prison. Which means basically everyone who goes to prison, is

    Wake the hell up on the PP. Ottawa is playing an aggressive kill and they’re not letting up just because the puck clears the zone. The amount of chances we’re giving up is completely unacceptable.

    All empires, and America has conducted itself as an empire, fall from within. With power, individuals and groups have to decide whether to use that power as a responsibility to do good or to do harm through aggression and hubris. Sociologists have been predicting the end of America as THE world power for some 20 years. Americans, particularly right-wingers, are rabidly reluctant to accept that all empires fall, and that includes them. So they ratchet up their rhetoric and look for someone, anyone to blame. Similarly, Adolph Hitler and the militants refused to accept that they lost WW1 due to m

  41. The ills of society lead 1% of people in these circumstances to murder. Your white guilt is better placed on the victims who suffer than on the murderers. The conversion starts as soon as the person gets arrested, not after the court case or the sentencing. Most people absolutely take skin colour into account, just read the posts. Therefore, your timeline argument is invalid. I also disagree with your opinion that bullies don't have good parents who would have corrected them. In your world, society 'makes' murderers, lack of good parenting 'makes' bullies and you can '

  43. Toronto will never get an NFL team. You would need an individual with a crazy, crazy amount of money. $5B for a franchise and $2B for a stadium. The Bills "experiment" was a disaster. But, the Bills achieved what they wanted, which was to secure the Golden Horseshoe as their territory.

  45. There is a campaign ongoing in the US to fill all social media with lies about the warrant that was outstanding on the young man who was killed in Minneapolis. The lies are that he had committed a violent armed robbery but in reality, he had been arrested for possession of one joint, pled guilty and was fined about $150.00 (US). He was given a payment plan on which he defaulted due to losing his job because of the pandemic. He was killed for simple possession. As an aside, the officer who killed him and the chief of police has resigned.

  46. Yeah, normally, you can't. You need to be 20 to play in the AHL, if you were drafted from the CHL. Otherwise, you need to go back your CHL team. This year is different. Perfetti shouldn't be allowed next year either but I'm not sure they've determined what will happen?

  47. Football participation is down in this country significantly. Here in Calgary, atom, bantam & pee wee associations have folded. There used to be junior varsity teams in HS here for the Grade 10's to play, That Division was discontinued in 2019 because of a lack of players. Now instead of 2 teams in each school there is just one. The problem is more than just the proposed XFL merger.
