  • Scoobum: As I predicted. Commercial break ins and domestc disputes are WAY up across Canada. It's only gonna get worse...
    April 03 2020, 03:17:22 PM
  • Scoobum: Auto theft is up 44%. People are laid off and lost their jobs. Damn this is getting ugly. If our lame duck PM keeps things locked down till July it'll be like the wild west.
    April 03 2020, 03:46:45 PM
  • Scoobum: The fallout continues...[link]
    April 03 2020, 04:50:00 PM
  • Scoobum: The Canadian Centre For Policy alternatives says 862,000 unemployed workers aren't eligible for aid. Trudeau said everyone laid off would be helped. What happened?

  • Scoobum: Ford just shut down all commercial and residential construction for 14 days. Talked to my son in law that's gonna build my garage. My son in law says 2 weeks is okay, but 30 days he may lose his business. He was just here the other day. He was still trying to get the town guy here to look the lot over for the permit.

  • Scoobum: Steve, Doug Ford is the Premier of Ontario. He has a family business, as far as I know, so he's a businessman. He's stopped contruction for 14 days. Form a business stand popint he won't let it gfo any further than that. I expect he'll reopen evedrything May 1st with social distance stipulations. The sobering fact if we don't resume business May 1st, we're likely gonna go into a world wide depression. People starving to death, especially in third world countries, will outstrip anything this virus will do. March new car sales are down 48%...huge auto sector layoffs will be next. With very few working, the govt's are taking in very little revenue, so they can't keep handing out money. China is now at 95% capacity...let them do it much longer...and they'll be the new world superpower.

  • TexasT: It is very eerie here. Traffic very light, people working from home or furloughed. People treating this as a vacation. STill congregating in parks and such. Really not helping slow the spread of the virus. I drive so we have a letter from the company to use if stopped but I don't think they are stopping any one. Wife and three daughters furloughed. Son works at Martin Sprocket and he said he was deemed essential. Not sure how long this will go but Dallas County announced yesterday it will go until may 20 and ft worth sez april 30 but that will probably change if these people keep up with the non compliance. I don't think China has a very good handle and could see a coup if they aren't careful. Im not so sure they didn't unleash this virus to slow down the Hong Kong and other dissenters in Wuhan and other places.

  • Forzfed: They just shut down the diners last week here.  We can still get take out.  I still see lots of traffic and lots of motorcycles out and about a week ago.  We just got 8" of snow so not see them out anymore.
    April 04 2020, 04:55:39 PM
  • Forzfed: Anyone ever watch The Constant Gardener?  It is suppose to be based on a true story of big Pharma injecting the aids virus in Africans.  Sure makes you think, especially when certain world leaders came out and said they know this for a fact! :O
    April 04 2020, 04:57:30 PM
  • Scoobum: John, it's time for you to grow a set and ignore the city health officials. Small business and Canadian cities can't afford a 12 week shutdown. [link]

  • reality: Dead people don't generate income either.
    April 04 2020, 08:57:11 PM
  • Scoobum: Yeah, and there'll be millions of them when we go into the next Great Depression. New cases dropped from 375 from 461 yesterday. We're on  our way down anyway.
    April 04 2020, 09:08:27 PM
  • Scoobum: Like Spock said. The needs of the many outweigh the needs of the few.
    April 04 2020, 09:09:29 PM
  • Scoobum: no attention to MSM baitclicking headlines. Thy're making a killing off this. Just check the ads...that's revenue for them. They're not stupid. Here's an example. 21 Year Old Dies From Corona Virus. Most just see the headline. If you read it, he had leukimia and his immune system was compromised. Condolences to his family and friends, but the headline was bait click.
    April 04 2020, 09:21:07 PM
  • Scoobum: Predictions are 1,600 people in Ontario COULD die by April 30th...and the total so far is 94...but keep in mind that number was from the very start. I'll bet more people in Ontario will get killed in car accidents this month than the virus.
    April 04 2020, 10:19:36 PM
  • Scoobum: At the end of June 2019 24.5 million people globally were accessing HIV therapy. And 2.3 million people globally newly became infected end of 2018. Numbers are insane compared to what we have for this virus, but we didn't shut down for it.
    April 04 2020, 10:56:06 PM
  • reality: maybe it's man made and they are trying to cover it up and mitigate the loses
    April 05 2020, 12:01:04 AM

  • Scoobum: No in store shopping at Canadian Tire or Home Depot. When is this insanity gonna stop.

    April 05 2020, 02:23:03 PM
  • 278CIKILLER: the link they took off youtube, sorry about that.
    April 05 2020, 02:33:31 PM
  • Scoobum: You can have 50 people in a grocery why can't you have 50 people in Home Depot or CT. Makes no sense. I'd argue hardware stores are essential to the effect if you had a plumbing or electrical issue in your home.
    April 05 2020, 03:55:21 PM
  • TexasT: Gravesend on Amazon prime. 87 t-top GN with the intercooled badges in the wrong place, as the lead characters ride
    April 05 2020, 04:12:49 PM
  • Scoobum: As I thought...we've been lied to. I went to Toronto and checked on the corona drive in/walk up sites. Surprise one at any of them. Thousands being tested...where? Pics later.
    April 06 2020, 04:36:45 PM
  • Scoobum: My buddy Styx makes to much sense...[link]
    April 06 2020, 09:31:26 PM
  • Scoobum: So the WHO wants come into your home and take your sick family member or members. Go ahead and try it buddy...and bring a long wooden box with you...[link]
    April 06 2020, 10:28:26 PM
  • Scoobum: Now the PM of Alberta is fear mongering like it's the end of civilization. Population of Alverta is about 15 people. Hey Kenney...pull your head outta your ass...and reopen for business ya' shmuck.
