The Final Solution: Canadian Edition

When one needs that famously compassionate Canadian health care, the reply can be to GO KILL YOURSELF!

A disabled veteran in Canada has slammed her government for offering to euthanize her when she grew frustrated at delays in having a wheelchair lift installed in her home.

[...] After years of frustrating delays in getting the home lift, Gauthier says the caseworker told her: 'Madam, if you are really so desperate, we can give you medical assistance in dying now.'

This wasn't just a single incident.

The worker who made the offer hasn't been named, but they are feared to have offered three other veterans who contacted VAC with problems the same 'solution', Global News reported.

It was definitely a shock.

'I was like, 'I can't believe that you will … give me an injection to help me die, but you will not give me the tools I need to help me live,'' she said.

Yup, because that's cheaper! Canadians have to comprehend that they are financially responsible for their health care and retirement. Government health care and pension should be counted as a zero! If they do miraculously get any proper medical treatment or pension payments in the future, then they should count it as a bonus. Otherwise, have savings for hospital visits in the US and keep filling up the RRSP and TFSA.


Continuing from the T20 final

The last time England won a Test match against Pakistan in Pakistan was 22 years ago. Thanks to their combined belief, aggression, ruthlessness, and willpower, the modern England defeated their defensive opponents.

Of course, The Legend keeps making history:

Having won ODI and T20 World Cups, and achieved 2019's miracle at Headingley, Stokes rated this success as one of the best. It is unquestionably the best embodiment of him as a captain. Not just for his bravery, nor the tactical calls that paid dividends, such as keeping the reversing old ball in play until midway through the 95th over to quieten the scoring, then replacing it that so Leach could use the prouder seam to turn it off the deck and win the match.

I've seen many great players over the years: Lara, Tendulkar, Villiers but they couldn't collect trophies or push their teams to perform at an exceptional level. Ben Stokes is the best thing that ever happened to English cricket. Two World Cups and two epic Test matches in just four years.


Decades of disaster

Boomers: Why don't you buy a house?

Answer:

[...] average income of Ontarians between the ages of 25 and 34 years has stayed nearly the same for decades, lingering at an average of roughly $50,000 a year. According to the latest data from StatsCan, the yearly income was $50,800 in 2020.

While the average house goes for $1 million.

“It takes 22 years of full-time work for the typical young person to save a 20 [per cent] down payment on an average priced home,” the report reads, which they say is 17 years longer than when “today’s aging population” were their age.

Read that again: 22 years of savings to pay for 20% of an average house. Simply unaffordable. To top it all off, the nefarious Canadian government will be importing 500,000 people every year which will continue to keep wages low and further increase real estate prices.


The Enemy of the People

The mediocre parrots are doing their thing:

Construct Tweet: [Say formerly respected or once great, etc.] Matt Taibbi [call it PR or comms or like that] for the [world’s richest man, the richest person in the world, so on]. Quote tweet thread. [hashtag optional].

That’s it. That’s the tweet. (Singular).

The NPCs had a different script earlier:


Jew got to be kidding me?

Who among us hasn't made a tiny math error?

Sam Bankman-Fried says he "misaccounted" $8 billion after some FTX customer funds were mistakenly counted twice, Bloomberg reported. The news outlet interviewed Bankman-Fried at his $30 million Bahamas penthouse after the collapse of FTX. The former billionaire – who now says he's down to his last $100,000 – showed Bloomberg's Zeke Faux a spreadsheet of FTX and Alameda's accounts.

Won't you feel sorry for this poor guy who is down to his last few notes of cash? He just might be forced to sell his $30 million property. So sad!


Records shattered

The T20 and ODI title holders are hungry for the Test championship:

506 for 4 England's total at stumps in Rawalpindi. They bettered a record that has stood since 1910 to become the first team to cross the 500-run mark on the first day of a Test match. England's tally of 506 is also the second-most scored by any team in a single day of Test cricket, behind Sri Lanka's 509 on day two against Bangladesh in 2002.

1 England became the first team ever to end day one of a Test match with four centurions. Australia managed three - once in 1884 against England and once in 2012 against South Africa.

What's even more astonishing is that those runs came from 75 overs! Given the fact that Ben "The Legend" Stokes was still batting, England would have likely smashed over 600 runs if the usual 90 overs were bowled. That would have easily broken the all-time single day record for most runs scored.


Perfidy

Trump wasn't kidding when he called the media The Enemy of the People.


Fortune favors the bold

Parasite-powered Alphas:

Wolves infected with a common parasite are more likely than uninfected animals to lead a pack, according to an analysis of more than 200 North American wolves1. Infected animals are also more likely to leave their home packs and strike out on their own.

The parasite, Toxoplasma gondii, makes its hosts bold — a mechanism that increases its survival.

Fascinating. The scientists were stunned by the findings.

For Meyer, the moral of the story is that parasites can be major players in ecosystems. “Parasites might have a much larger role than anyone generally gives them credit for,” he says.


No love for romaine hearts

Life in the cold North:

“I don’t even know the price until it shows up,” he said.

In the last few weeks, Dean has considered himself lucky if he gets a quarter of the cases he normally needs, and actually, that’s fine, because at these prices — $6.99 for a head of iceberg, $14.99 for a bag of three romaine hearts — nobody’s buying it anyway.

That's some very expensive water thanks to the supply shock in California.


There is no justice

The Democrats protect their revenue stream:

It's the same with "protests". American cities burned and dozens were murdered while the media called it "mostly peaceful" but show up unarmed at the wrong place on January 6, 2021, and you're put in jail for years.


Is this White Privilege?

He likely voted for the very people who fired him for being White. The admins will get brownie points for hiring a lower-wage colored clown who'll perform worse. Of course, the new diversity hire won't be fired for incompetence because that would be RACISSS.


Pain for Mr. Payne

Range Anxiety is quite real:

Payne wrote that he charged the truck to a full 100 percent charge ahead of the trip, and that the manufacturer claimed that a full charge should have allowed him to travel the whole distance without another charge.

The next part made me laugh.

Payne wrote that as he sat at his third charging station of the day, another driver asked what sort of mileage he was getting on his roughly $93,000 EV truck.

“I’m getting about 170 miles of range on this trip up I-75,” he told the other driver. “How about you?”

The man replied, “I’ve got the turbo-6 cylinder. I’m getting 600 miles and 22 mpg. I don’t think I’ll ever get one of those electrics.”

A sitcom can get a lot of mileage out of the shortcomings of an EV.


A train wreck

There was a psycho girl from Pakistan who lived in the US. She blogged about her crazy leftist beliefs. I would simply provide excerpts and critique her logic and reasoning abilities. Her response? She cried like a little girl and wrote that I was a "cyber bully".

That was definitely amusing.

She had to look at her blog stats, click to arrive at my site, and then read my devastatingly brutal words about herself. All she could conjure up was: U R CYBER BULLY!

It was quite surreal to witness such a combination of mental retardation and emotional weakness. Eventually, she decided to nuke her blog. Sad!


So very progressive

The logic of equality means that women lose:

Last year, Hoffman was a mediocre cross-country runner on Seattle Academy’s boys’ team. During freshman year, Aspen Hoffman competed as a boy and finished 72nd in the League finals. Now, as a sophomore competing as a girl, Hoffman broke Seattle Academy’s school record in the girls’ 5000-meter category and ranks 1st in League.

The parents are pussies.

Parents are terrified to even raise concerns about Hoffman’s presence on the girls’ team. Another parent noted, “parents are upset but they know it has to go to the state committee, which isn't politics, it's the state high school board, and unless there's any kind of pressure put on them to change the rule nothing's going to happen.”


You'll drink water and you'll be happy!

No fooling Betty:

Betty Henry, a consumer in London, Ont., has been using E.D Smith's Pumpkin Pie Filling for 50 years to make pies for Thanksgiving. She says she noticed a difference in the filling as soon as she opened the can this year.

The pie filling used to list vegetable oil as the third-largest share in the ingredient list.

In the new version of the product that Henry used this year, vegetable oil had been moved to sixth place. And taking its place at third? Water.

The company watered down the product and then, to add insult to injury, spiked the price by 50% in under two years.

The price of the pumpkin pie filling has increased by more than 50 per cent since January 2021. At that time, the pie filling was $3.99. In October 2022, it had gone up to $6.03 at Loblaws stores in Toronto. Both versions of the can were 540 millilitres.

It's understandable when businesses have to increase prices. Shrinking the product packaging has become standard practice. Still, uncool. However, boosting the water content while keeping the same product name is scummy.
