  2. You guys and Jonesys are going to be the death of me! So had had to make a trip out that way for work today. Thought I'd stop in and grab something to go. Had a burger, and it was one of the best I've ever had. I'm into burger that pays attention to the patty used, not just piling on a variety of toppings and calling it a day. I think I might have to make another excuse for the almost 40 km trip one way.
  3. It's amazing how free speech only applies to those when they have the same opinion as you. Protest lockdowns is OK, but others- "lynch 'em"
  4. That was my first thought too, that it was staged or someone trying to make the movement look bad.. What's with the hammer and sickle?
  5. Yup. With the current divide, I don't see any other outcome other than a revolution or civil war. it's only going to get worse closer to the election, and even if Trump and the republicans are defeated, that exit is going to be messy as hell, and those issues are still going to be boiling over. My family has been gradually going to the US less and less often, and I don't know if we will go back for the foreseeable future, other than Hawaii that seems to avoid the vast majority of this. For the last 12-15 years I have been going to Mlps for a beer convention in October- not this year for sure. The current riots will dissipate but the country as a whole will be a shitshow for years. When Trump was elected, we knew it would be bad, but I don't think many thought it would be this bad.

    Two things really strike me about this video; the message itself (which seems to go against the current government's views) and who it is coming from. Bush used to be a punchline for poor public speaking, as well as not the sharpest tool in the shed. To me, it's a stark reminder how far the US (and the republican party) has gone downhill since then. The current government would never be able to splice to together a similar message from Trump, nor would they.

    ... or he could have looked around and seeing each and every other person wearing a mask asking, "where's mine?" I'd bet the farm the hospital told him - as was in the tweet they deleted, and that the wife is full of crap. Nothing like sending the wife out to address an old issue.

    Federally, the concept of virtual inspections was introduced with Bill C-4 in 2013

    Covid-19

    One word- enforcement Employers know they can cut corners, with little to no repercussions from OSH who also have the responsibility to enforce. H&S authorities have effectively been neutered when it comes to violations, and then you see these cases occur. If there is consistent enforcement, and fines for those who violate the rules, corporations will be motivated to follow the rules and regulations that are there. I also don't buy blame being put on employees for the most part. Sure you're gonna have some idiots in any workplace that you're going to have to deal with. For the most part it is the culture of acceptance of ignoring H&S concerns in the name of productivity, a lack of training and awareness, and general apathy that leads to hazards such as this. In the legislation, the wording is also, " the employer shall ensure...". If you look at construction, if you don't follow the rules, you get kicked of the worksite. How many other employers are that diligent?

    Yup- even if we get things under control here, it's gonna be a sH!tshow south of the border for a long time. https://crooksandliars.com/2020/03/mississippi-governor-refuses-act Don't know much about the site, but read the same responses elsewhere, just too lazy to find.
  11. No old enough to remember his aying days. Who can find the video of him swinging his cane then getting punched?- classic
  12. Anyone know where to find the current percentages to make the playoffs?
  13. I think part of the plan is to save some $$ so when there is a late opportunity we've got some space. Kind of like when Biggie shook loose late in FA period. Maybe one our NFL guys is open to coming back.

    You'd like to think so, but i doubt it will change things. Hard to believe one minute killed this guy's presidential aspirations only 16 years ago. Standards have changed.
