  • Saturday Open…4 shifts to go

    Filed under Open thread at June 8th, 2019 - 9:37 am

    It’s Monday for me tho…that said, 4 shifts to go then I’m off for 3 weeks. 3 weeks.

    I was getting close to the point where I stop accruing PTO time and that is a No-No-HELL-NO in my book. It was necessary to burn 3 weeks of vacation to rectify this near disaster.

    Enjoy Yinz’s weekend!

      Michael Bloomberg is a totalitarian thug just like Soros and Steyer. The other day he said he was pledging $500 mil to shut down every coal mine in the country (we’ll see how lack of power hits his business ventures but that’s another story).

      I’d forgotten about this, but he’s already started. His Bloomberg Philanthropies is funding any state AG office’s legal fellows – salaries and benefits – that goes after fossil fuel companies. Like Exxon. In the NY AG’s office who is liasing w/ NYU Law School’s State Energy and Environmental Impact Center.

      Exxon is suing on grounds of conflict of interest (i.e., NY AG is a paid whore of Bloomberg) and the AG is not abiding by discovery rules (surprise).

      The thing is – Exxon has deep pockets but no company has deeper pockets than the state. NY can lose this and turn around and sue again and again until Exxon is no longer viable, who cares if they win in court.

      How very Bolshevik of them. This is really reminiscent of the pre- and post-Revolution days of the Soviet Union. Crazy rules, people going after the wealth creators.

      You have this example. The Board Rooms of publicly traded companies have been infiltrated by marxist SJW’s — just look at the commitments to “diversity”, “sustainability” and “anti-hate” that the corporations are rolling out. No good is going to come of any of this. We let the marxists win by allowing them to take over the education system and indoctrinate the next generations.

      I’m good with that. I’d add Google to that mix — YouTube is also a de facto monopoly and its demonetization of the channels of people with whom they disagree is flat out censorship

      So many conservative youtube content providers are being hassled non-stop. The demonetization has been going on for years. Lately it has become more aggressive. They get their podcasts removed for no legitimate reason. The producers worry about being banned outright and being sued for having opinions that counter the official narrative. It’s an all out attack on freedom of speech across the board. You realize the sheer numbers of people being paid to search out all content that is not leftist and censor according to some unknown criteria. That’s a big budget policing all social media.
      Scary indeed. Same up here if not worse due to the relatively small population of conservatives.

      this one is good too

      That China example with tariffs is now the baseline for all multinational investment to consider as they review their current exposure in Mexico. If any financial investor (bank or corporation) believes Mexico will not adhere to the border/migration agreement, then by extension they are accepting/predicting the Mexican tariffs will take effect in 90-days.

      Put another way… President Trump has just given notice to all global business interests to organize their financial affairs toward Mexico within 90 days.

      which is a significant incentive for Mexico to behave

      Now the question is – how do the cartels play it? The Chinese have been using that route for fentanyl but I’m betting they don’t want to push it right now, they’ll find another entry point.

      Florida/Texas?

      Bloomberg and creepy billionaires see American energy self reliance as a stumbling block to the NWO. He wants to keep the U.S. military in the Middle East and flung far and wide on a path to a UN run globalist enforcement arm. They see themselves as gods while they are precisely demonic.

      There is a fascinating article in the Daily Mail today. Quoting a friend from Harry’s polo circle, it says Harry and Megan are’passionately’ concerned about ‘helping children’ and they want everyone to stop using plastic. This friend told a story about Harry who chastised the staff at a hotel he was staying at for returning his dry cleaning in a plastic bag and providing take-away coffee with a plastic stirrer.

      1. There have been TONS of articles about Megan and Harry that never quote them directly but always surrogates. These articles always portray them as ‘global influencers’ who are PASSIONATE (that’s what I call a ‘marker word’, like ‘sustainable’. Bullshit alert)

      2. The Palace has not once told the UK press to back off, which they will not hesitate to do if the media is wrong or too aggressive.

      3. Harry and Megan recently hired as their PR person a former Hillary slag whose name I’ve forgotten. Her first fuck up was with the massively confused announcement of the baby’s arrival.

      Conclusion: We all know there is a cabal trying to gather power based on a fraud. Harry and Megan are useful idiots for the moment. Fortunately, Megan has not made a great impression on the Brits. Her failure to show up for Trump’s visit, being a former American, using the maternity leave as an excuse, yet be more than willing to gallivant on the Palace balcony for the Queen’s b-day has not gone un-remarked. It was considered beneath the standard expected of the Royal Family, who respect the office and the ally if not the person. That’s just the most recent issue.

      Why plastic and Harry? It’s a test case. Let’s see if Harry can be an ‘influencer’ and if people are willing to change their behavior. Plastic isn’t important, the behavior metrics are.

      Bottom line: it’s not working. The people who are pushing this garbage are SO unlikable, it’s like hiring Rosie O’Donnell to push pedophilia.

      @ eaglesoars:

      Brits are not blind to the hypocrisy of rejecting a plastic stirrer when you spend a half a million on a few outfits, take private jets around the world, and require a couple million in renovations for your starter house. Loathsome creatures. Meghan lies as easily as breathing. Malignant narcissists leave bodies in their wake. See Obama as a prime example. Wars, race riots, and spygate during his time in office and that’s not all.

      I don’t know this source, but I am convinced that there is an iceberg of sexual exploitation of young children. This is the part of modern human slavery that nobody wants to talk about. The ‘queer’ movement expanding down to first graders could lead smoothly to normalization of pedophilia. There’s an entire religion that allows child brides and FGM.

      There may always be a dark side to human nature. Popularizing it and robbing children the benefits of a wholesome childhood is criminal. Our former radical lesbian Ontario leader picked a Minister of Education who was outed as a child pornographer. He made POLICY that remains. No consequences except losing an election and their jobs.

      When I worked at Embarcadero Center in San Francisco, I was able to watch the Blue Angles fly over the Bay in practice two days before the start of Fleet Week. One year they actually flew above and between the buildings but were told to cut it out (because the Liberals in town don’t like the sound of freedom).

      If Nancy doesn’t knock it off, I can see the Navy advising her that they won’t be sending the Blue Angels for Fleet Week. If there’s no Blue Angels, they might as well not even bring the ships, either. The year Obama punished everyone by not sending the Blue Angels during sequestration, the City had a pathetic turnout for the weekend, and lost MILLIONS in anticipated revenue.

      @ eaglesoars:

      The Trudeau government will ban single-use plastics as early as 2021, CBC News has learned from a government source.

      Plastic straws, cotton swabs, drink stirrers, plates, cutlery and balloon sticks are just some of the single-use plastics that will be banned in Canada, according to the source.

      This is part of a larger strategy to tackle the plastic pollution problem that the government is expected to announce Monday.

      Full list to mirror the EU

      According to the source, the full list of plastics to be banned by the federal government will follow the model chosen by the European Union, which voted in March to also ban products made of oxo-degradable plastics, such as bags. Oxo-degradable plastics include additives that don’t completely biodegrade but fragment into small pieces and remain in the environment.

      Fast-food containers and cups made of expanded polystyrene, which is similar to white styrofoam, will also be banned.

      At the G7 in Charlevoix, Que., last June, Prime Minister Justin Trudeau announced the Canada-led Ocean Plastics Charter.

      Canada, France, Germany, Italy, the U.K. and the European Union immediately signed on, agreeing to find ways to deal with marine plastics litter.

      All of those countries have moved to curb plastic pollution, some of them with laws to reduce the consumption of plastics.
