American idiots

I remember the original story on this farmer, right after 911. Back when Canadians were flying the Stars & Stripes. Right after Ganderonians were boarding stranded US passengers, and a tour bus driver drove New Jersey seniors home, all the way from BC. Back when we all felt like New Yorkers.

The US government started protecting it's northern border. After all our socialist country was full of terrorist cells. We were even originally blamed for letting the 911 terrorists into their country.

These American assholes invaded the small towns in New Brunswick & Quebec that straddled the border and started laying down ridiculous restrictions, rules and bull shit. One poor French Canadian moose hunter ended up being held in Bangor, Maine for months because he filled his gas tank a few yards down the road with cheaper US gas.

And this old guy Nikolai Pedersen stopped getting his mail because the US border guard's decided that Canada Post couldn't cross the border anymore. The road leading to his farm ran from Canada to the US and back to Canada where his house is located.

Apparently things got back to normal, then his daughter went to visit him. She ran into a road block and told she could no longer use the road.

U.S. border cuts off Canadian war vet from his N.B. home

But don't worry this is joint operation (pun intended) by Canada & the US according to the RCMP interviewed in the CBC report.

"RCMP Sgt. Derek Strong said this week's roadblock is a short-term joint Canada-U.S. anti-smuggling operation and isn't targeting the Pedersen family. Their home is the only Canadian property on the road."

Oops they might not be working that closely together.

"But a U.S. border protection official told CBC News that the crackdown is the beginning of a long-term "enhanced" security effort on the border."

American idiots.

PizzaGate explained

Never heard Bernie speak until after the US election, saw the debates and thought Hillary cleaned Trump's clock. Knew Trump was a prick and couldn't understand how any sane person would vote for him, yet for some reason, I called myself a Bernie guy, didn't trust Hillary and had no idea why.

But, at least I didn't take my gun to a pizza joint to break up a pedophilia ring in the basement and end up getting four years in prison, like Ed Welch from North Carolina.

RollingStone in partnership with the Investigative Fund and the Centre for Investigative Reporting along with five other journalists tracked down the origins and methodologies used to propagate the most successful fake news story of the past election,

Boys are not allowed to hit girls

Don't do much anymore except make breakfast for one of my grandkids, a seven year old boy, walking him to school, picking him up and then having philosophical conversations about his day. Living in the basement of my daughter's house, I really try, to not interfere with their parenting, but what the hell, right now he spends as much time with me during the week, than he does with them.

The other day my daughter who came home early and ended up eavesdropping on our conversation about when to fight and when to walk away. Apparently it was one of those days in the school yard.

"Look, it is really simple" I started, "there are only two rules about fighting.The first rule is, you don't start the fight, but if a boy hits you, hit him back, as hard and as fast as you can and don't stop until he runs away." He liked that part and demonstated how he would punch. "In other other words," I continued "you will only be in trouble if you started the …
