What IOSI?!?!?!?

I often get a chuckle when I see something Trump (or some other republican/ Right wainger) says and pondering "What If Obama Said It?" Just how batshit crazy would the response of the Right be?

Look at Trumps latest faux pas. He was talking about President Xi Jinping of China and him being declared President Fo Life of China.

"He's now president for life. President for life. No, he's great," Trump said. "And look, he was able to do that. I think it's great. Maybe we'll have to give that a shot some day."

Even if said in jest can you imagine how beserk teh response of the Right would have been if Obama said anything like this? He would have been crucified on Fox. There would have been calls to impeach him, if not an actual move to do itif the Right controlled the House. There would be calls to assassinate him, if not attempts.

But Trump said it so it is ok with the Right.

Facebook Follies ... Whack Jobs.

There is a twat on Facebook that goes by the name of Kevin Hay. He is a conspiracy theorist that loves promoting fake shit. Normally I don't waste my time considering morons like him but when he tried to present something as fact that could EASILY be proven wrong ... without even citing anything to back up his statement, it irked me.

A little background info on Kevin, from his Facebook page.He says he is a Manager at one company and runs his own cosmetics business too. Other than a lot of posts pushing one conspiracy theory or another, and whining about people that complain about him, not much of substance to his page. Yet he wrote a post about Fidel Castro being Justin Trudeau's real father as if he had access to the information, mainly a suicide note. He cites no sources and takes all credit.

According to Snopes this myth has been around since someone started it 2016.

"On 27 November 2016, two days after Castro’s death was announced, a user on the Donald Trump subreddit /r/The_Donald presented a theory that Justin Trudeau, the son of former prime minister Pierre Trudeau, was actually the love child of Fidel Castro and Margaret Trudeau. "

Snopes then proceeded to prove how wrong this was.

It is bad enough when people perpetuate this shit but to try and make it look like you have some access to the suicide note. What else can you expect from an internet whackjob?

Facebook Follies .... vanishing memes?!?!?!?

I noticed in the last couple of days a lack of comments and memes on Facebook about how having armed police, guards, or teachers in the school would have stopped the shooter in Parkland Florida, and anywhere else this has happened. It struck me as strange. Until I saw this.

"Four sheriff’s deputies hid during Florida school shooting"

Yes ... four deputies that were the first to respond to the shooting ... while the shooter was active .... hid behind their cars. What makes it worse is that one deputy was the officer ASSIGNED TO THE SCHOOL as the armed resource officer ON SITE!!!

No wonder the comments and memes stopped.

I don't speak idiot.

I went to Sobeys this morning. I knew they would be open even though it was a holiday and took a chance it would be 10. (Yeah I could have looked it up on the internet but sometimes you just have to live dangerously. ;) ) As I was getting ready to turn right into their parking lot a dumbass decided to make an illegal left turn into the parking lot cutting in front of me. If I had been going the speed limit and not slowing to turn I would have t-boned the moron.

She then drove up and parked in the fire lane, in front of the crosswalk, by the main doors. Then she hopped out and ran up to the door.

I parked the car and tried to hold my snark in. Ok, tried to hold my anger in. I walk up and see the door is locked. Moron is still standing there. I whip out the phone and look up the holiday hours. Lo and behold they open noon to 6. It was 10:00 AM.

The dumbass says: "Excuse me do you know what time it is."

I reply: "Sorry I don't speak Idiot."

I wish I had the phone camera on and took a pic of her face. The look was priceless as she tried to process what I said.

She snarled: "Why would you talk to me like that?"

"Because you are moron. You made an illegal left hand turn and almost cut me off. You then parked your fucking car right there, in the fire lane, in front of the fucking crosswalk. Any other questions?"

She stammered a bit and couldn't seem to make a reply.

"Oh. It is 10 AM and they don't open until noon."

I walked away while she stewed. As I got in the car and buckled up I saw her get a shopping cart and stand by the door. The fucking place doesn't open for 2 hours and this loopy cunt is lining up. While her shitmobile is stll parked illegaly.

Fucking mooks.

What the ... mookishness?!?!?!?

I have had to be at an airport 3 days in the last week. In all 3 days I ran into a mook. Ok, I ran  into way too many mooks because people tend to forget everything and become a mook at an airport but these 3 stand out.

Three days in a row I ran into this behaviour. As I approached the first door to enter the airport someone (a woman in all 3 times) was standing in front of the door. I would make eye contact with them and wait. They would just stand there. I would open the door and wait. Nothing would happen. I would say "Excuse me." and they would blink and say "Oh, I didn't see you there,"

Seriously? You fucking stupid moron! You are BLOCKING the doorway to enter the airport! Yet you are surprised that someone wants to enter. Ok, I didn't say that. I sucked it in not to tell someone that she is a fucking mook and that will haunt me for a few days. Or minutes. Or fuck you.

As soon as I entered and passed them they went back to blocking the doorway. There is really nothing you can say to get a moron of that magnitude to change their ways.

Fucking mooks.

What the ... cause of road rage?!?!?!?

I have been doing a lot of highway driving in the last year plus. One thing I have noticed is something that could incite people to "road rage" or as I call it to become pissed off to all hell at the fucking assholes in front of you.

Too many times a day I am behind some mook doing 80 KPH or thereabouts in a 100 KPH or even a 110 KPH stretch of road. Mind you, as soon as you hit a place that you could pass these slow pokes they speed up. Often going 10+ KPH over the limit. At least until they get to an area that you can't pass them legally at. Then they slow way the hell back down.

I am not saying that someone would be right to run those cocksuckers off the road and do them bodily harm. However, I have thought of doing that many times in the last year plus.

If you want to drive so slow use the fucking back roads. Don't fuck over people who use the highways and expect to actually do the speed limit. Don't try peoples patience so much because one day you are going to do it to the person who will go over the edge and fuck you up.

What the ... pestering?!?!?!/

I usually buy tickets for the QE 2 Home Loto. It takes place twice a year. The last few years I have been hesitant to buy tickets. Not winning anything the last 4-5 years made me wonder why bother to buy a ticket and not just donate directly.

It is impossible to not know the tickets are on sale. There are TV and Radio ads all day long. There are mail out to anyone who has bought a ticket. They even employ ... telemarketers.

This is where my ire is raised. With all the ads and mail outs the last thing I need is some telemarketer calling me to let me know tickets are on sale. It is impossible to not know they are on sale. You can't listen to the radio on the drive to work without knowing, and their song can stay in your head for a while. You can't watch TV without seeing an ad at some point. Hell they are paying to have their ads on during the Stanley Cup Playoffs. So why the fuck do I need some faceless drone to call me to let me know tickets are on sale and wonder why I haven't bought any yet?

In the week leading up to the end of sales for the Early Bird Draw I received 3 calls with no message left and one wondering if I knew and that they knew I didn't have my tickets yet. Once again, how the fuck could I not know? They seemed gobsmacked when I said I wasn't interested. They then made the mistake of pressing their case which irritated me further. I had just said I wan't interested. Knowing their charity I decided to stay polite,just affirmed I was not interested, and told them not to call me again. I hung up after that.

It reminded me of a year ago when I waited until the day before the "last chance" for the Early Bird Draw" to order my tickets. A telemarketer called the next day because it was out last chance to get tickets before the EBD. I informed them I had already bought them and was told their records didn't show that. I told him they should have updated them so they didn't piss people off and hung up.

It is a worthy charity but holy shit they must spend a good chuck of the money raised on advertising. Do they bring in so much money they don't have to worry about the costs? If so, how about you just go with the ads and stop using fucking telemarketers?!?!?!?  Put that money towards what you are supposed to be raising it for?!?!? Your ads and mail outs are enough.
