    Add up the people who vote Liberal, NDP, Green.

    Then tell me you don’t believe that the majority of Canadians are idiots.

    Then admit that Lots of idiots vote conservative too.

    Trust me. The majority of Canadians are complete morons
    Popular vote has been going Conservative, and they have some stupid ides themselves, but certainly aren't campaigning on the idea of kneecapping canadian business and investment. You could be right though about the combined votes for other parties making up the majority. All the more reason to separate

    Definitely short sighted and self-oriented.
    "What's in it for me and I want the perks"
    Non of it is thought, "is this worth my taxes?"

    But also half of Canada pays little to no income tax. Easy voting choice at that point.

    80-20 rule

    80% of Canadians just exist, 20% make things happen.

    Tucker Carlson asking where the strategic petroleum reserve went.



    Haven't seen it myself, but does make sense it went to Europe, India and Asia. None seems to have made it to Sri Lanka (for the obvious reason they do not have refining capacity) But Sri Lanka itself has not requested petroleum from the USA, instead asking Russia for assistance.

    Ruble crushing all worldwide currencies at the moment.
    Ban carbon propulsion engines.

    A side effect of rising carbon price might actually end up collapsing "vanity" projects that consume energy as the population complains about $5/gallon (which is stupidly inexpensive
    IMO)

    Skyscrapers, NASA, Tourist Airports - might all be on the chopping block. Was it pre-ordained with peak oil? Buzz Aldrin might actually live long enough to have someones born in USA grandkid ask why he used up all the fuel.

    Making fungible product non-fungible does that.

    I thought increasing the cost of oil and gas by limiting supply was the goal?

    Did they think for some reason that wouldn’t be profitable for those in possession of those commodities?

    Nope. Brought to you by the same people that thought we'd be locked down for a month at most.
