Dictator.

 

There’s a LOT. going on behind the veil of Covid-19. A total disintegration of institutions all at once almost as if... it were planned...

 

When America passed Vietnam’s 58,000 count in dead Americans, it became evident that they were going to churn forward toward World War I of 116,500 by December. I just didn’t think it would be by the end of May, mid-June.
 

By the looks of it, I think America will see herself approach World War II numbers of 405,500 by December, but I fear it may be by July...
 

And worse, America may have reached Civil War numbers; 755,000 by next year, but I fear it may be by the end of the year...

 

By insinuating “liberation” of States, pillaging her coffers, calling white supremacists “very good people”, taking knowledge and science out of the equation, calling the press the “Enemy of the People” (let that one really sink in for a minute), collapsing the basic rule of law one stone at a time, buddying you to the dictators of the world, and destabilizing the entire world by defunding the pandemic office, as well as showing a conscious and comprehensive plan to do nothing at all, Americans are so desensitized that this Coup d’État is going after the right to vote, and that is the End Game.

 

When all is said and done, the Russian Asset may be the cause of most death in in American history, surpassing its Civil war numbers.

 

At the very least, it is involuntary manslaughter.

 

The Dictatorship is one election away from full success because American Democracy cannot suffer another four years of this. It’ll be the Dark Ages by the time he’s done with it because he would rather be the King of Hell than a Slave of Heaven.

 

Like a Pandemic, it already happened by the time it becomes evident that it did. I think by the time November rolls around, he will appear to “reluctantly” cancel the elections because the carnage will be to great and voting will be too dangerous, or, Americans will create a third wave of Covid-19 by going to vote en mass to get the Russian-dolled Trojan Horse out of there and at The Hague. 

I was just saying the same today at work,i cannot see another four years of Trump....Please no. :mellow:

The only way that happens and they don't go full rogue is if the Dems win the house and take back the Senate.

The Bigot in Chief could avoid this by leaving the handling of the virus to people with functioning brains, but he continues to spew his ignorant garbage, to the detriment of humanity. 

Cheers King Heffy, as they say touché.

WorkSafeBC has lost billions, can't afford to help businesses buy PPE

LOCAL NEWS

 

WorkSafeBC, which sets rules to reopen B.C.'s economy from COVID-19, has lost almost all of a $3-billion surplus due to the stock market drop.

VICTORIA — The government agency in charge of setting and enforcing the rules for reopening businesses closed by the pandemic can’t afford to help businesses buy protective equipment because it has lost almost all its $3 billion surplus in the recent stock market collapse.

Labour Minister Harry Bains said WorkSafeBC cannot use a large surplus accumulated over many years to give partial refunds to employers on masks, gloves, Plexiglas shields and other safety gear, as suggested by the Opposition Liberal party.

“WorkSafeBC is not immune to COVID-19 either, their investments have sunk to almost zero when it comes to the surplus money they are sitting on,” Bains told Postmedia. “So almost all of the surplus has been wiped out a couple weeks ago because of our stock market, and that’s where the money was invested.”

WorkSafeBC’s last publicly available annual report, from 2018, pegged the surplus at almost $2.9 billion.

“It was wavering between $2 or $3 billion,” said Bains. “It’s almost all gone.”....

WCB is the biggest scam - joke in the government period.  Good luck with their kangoroo court system. And god help you of if  your ever seriously injured as their policies are designed to make you go broke or wait until their “client” commits suicide.   What a crock of sh!t that place is.  That said why in the heck would anyone be so worried that they’d do that anyways?  Society is so full of lazy idiots I’m way more concerned about that then COVID 19.  19% of the work force expects a raise, promotion or trophy just for doing their job.   Baby bombers and gen x can’t do all the work forever.   In particular people raised in Victoria and Vancouver are entitled brats for the large part.   And that has being going back decades.  When I used to hire construction crews rarely were the best people born and raised in the most mainlaind or Victoria - the best workers came from Ontario and Alberta or small town BC.  Cry babies the bunch of them.  And that was 10-25 years ago now.  Maybe it’s better but I doubt it.   Probably trolled 75% of this site with that one comment - but seriously isn’t this supposed to be a Canuck site and how many pages are on this thread now? Shame.  Make a trade proposal ... participate in the other threads ... COVID 19 isn’t as bad as World War II or the Great Depression 

That may be true at this point. But eh it isn’t over yet.

Oh the early days of this thread.

 

Here’s an update on Brazil...

 

Brazil is the New Epicentre of the Global Coronavirus Pandemic

 

Unfortunate as the head guy “in charge” over there  seems to be willing to sacrifice the most vulnerable by doing nothing.  Problem is, this virus doesn’t play favorites.  Rich or poor.

That story stinks so bad how could we believe it. Work Safe BC lost $3 billion in the stock market? Who was managing the money and who authorized the investment policy? 

This is not believable. If the money is actually lost the auditor general had better be at their offices with the RCMP. 

Markets down?  Sure.  But THAT bad?  Unless they were "investing" the surplus money at online casino betting, I too question how the heck they lost that much money.

The story was unclear as to whether they lost all the $3 billion or a portion. My impression was it was all. The March meltdown was about 25% on the TSX, not 100%. These type of investment funds are not invested in high risk flyers. This story just doesn't sound right?

I agree.. No way they were in a portfolio with that much risk and lack of oversight.. My guess is specifics have been left out to sensationalize the story.
