Hydro One is wrong

Sometimes very late at night, unable to sleep, usually full of self pity and scotch, to the point that I can no longer follow the storyline on any of the Netflix series I am following, I find myself aimlessly wandering through the time killing sites, the latest move clip sites, unblocked Mary Hartman, Mary Hartman episodes and finally before I pass out, news bloopers.

I find  the gaffes, miscues, asking Mike Tyson if his rape convictions might hurt Rob Ford’s chances for reelection and then being surprised at the response, hilarious, but what I don’t understand are the clips of some asshole running up to some reporter to shout some obscenity. It is not a blooper, it is not funny, it is just crude, juvenile profanity for which the perpetrator and their actions should shunned, not heralded.

So when the CITY TV reporter went after the bystanders that were egging on one of their friends to shout an obscenity into her microphone at a soccer game, she was doing us all a favour and by filming and posting their failed attempt to justify their laughing at the incident, she thoroughly embarrassed both individuals.

However the crude juvenile actions of these two individuals in responding to the reporter was not sexual harassment and definitely not harassment in the workplace and does not warrant being fired by their employer.

Hydro One has overstepped and none us should be supporting their action and if you have a problem with that, take it up with Fern Hill at Dammit Janet.

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,

Perils of shopping online

Thought I'd try that new millennial thing this year. You know that online shopping thing using your computer, that the kids are all into today.  Saved a ton of time, however there were a few drawbacks.  On boxing Day I had to spend a half an hour with my eleven year old granddaughter explaining how Trump called Clinton nasty in the second debate and this girl in Kentucky wrote a slam poem about it and then Ashley Judd an old actress heard it and performed it at the women's march following Trump's inauguration and that the word Nasty on the black tank top I bought her from the Young Turks web store was actually a positive thing, in fact a shield for women to protect themselves from the assholes of the world.  Next year I'll try not to do my online shopping at three in the morning after a joint and couple single malts. Other than that it's been a pretty good Christmas season. Hope you are having a good time too.
