This is another of the W.O.O.D. series of semi-regular
Weekly Occasional Open Discussions.
(i.e. if I forget and skip one, no big)
Immediate prior one here:
and remains open for threads running there (at least until the ‘several month’ auto-close of comments on stale threads).
Canonical list of old ones here:
For just general FYI notices, use to “tips” pages. All the old ones remain for historical reference:
What’s Going On?
The USA and our lame excuse for press are fixated on politics
While the world explodes in a lethal pandemic, all the USA Lame Stream Media can do is display their Trump Derangement Syndrome while trying to decide who they like more: The Crazy Communist with heart problems, the has been grifter politician who’s losing his marbles, the rabid congenital liar attack dog with ancestry fabrication issues, the Billionaire Dwarf Troll who has a trove of racist & sexist skeletons in his closet, or the new kid who played mayor once, plus maybe some folks nobody remembered. Sigh. You would think the Democrat Billionaire Party Bosses could buy a better candidate…
2019-nCoV Corona Virus is Rampant
While all the official places try to avoid stating it, this IS now a pandemic. Out of control on three continents. The current thread on it is here:
Additional threads are added as the time to load becomes too long.
Canadian Train Follies
Never mind the China supply chain collapse, the cold, and the heavy snow; Canada can’t move goods or people across the country due to the stupidity of the Government and Tribal Leaders.
Seems there are signed agreements with all the involved Tribal Councils to build a natural gas pipeline. BUT, the tribal chiefs whom inherit their position were not consulted and don’t want it built. Gotta save the Earth doncha know. So they put up barricades on the rail lines and rounded up a protest group.
Now about 1500 rail workers are laid off, even the Indians are running out of propane for home heating and food to eat as they use grocery stores too, and a growing fleet of ships are stacking up off shore B.C. ’cause you can’t load what isn’t there and can’t unload what doesn’t leave…
But don’t worry. Justin, having pissed off everyone wanting shipping to happen by codling the protesters in “dialog” until it is too late, is now pissing off the Indians by taking action. Maybe.
Russia Redux Again…
The DNC and Deep State are AGAIN dusting off their Poor Johnny One Note story that The Russians Are Comming!!! This time as a two-fer, aimed at both Trump and Sanders.
Maybe we can start a Go Fund Me for them to buy them a new scriptwriter…
