I am well aware of the nature of the beaverton. If I wasn't the shores of Saskatchewan may have clued me in. I was responding to the initial post in the thread not the inane chidish and off-topic banter that followed. Now go back to your drivel if you want.

which means LIE-berals HATE what I have to say because it always makes them LOOK BAD!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!








Here is an article illustrating how disconnected LIE-berals are from the reality of life in Canada!! With some comments of my own in brackets):

From: National Post.

By Nicholas Sokic

Published June 11, 2019

Unemployment is at record low, so why are Canadians so worried about job insecurity, recession and cost of living? 67% of Canadians feel a recession is imminent within the next three years

(Firstly LIE-berals LIE about employment conditions! LIE-berals used to count people having decent jobs with 40 hours of STEADY WORK as being full time employees!! To hide the modern ugly economic reality- LIE-berals now decree you are “fully employed” if you work 28 hours per week on some limited term contract that may not be renewed!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!)

(The MODERN “full time” employee lives a much more precarious life- with lower pay and higher costs for basic things like electricity and transportation- with such costs being driven by civil service union GREED!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!)

Despite record-low unemployment numbers, 32 per cent of Canadians have reported feeling very negatively about their current job security, according to the latest Forum Research poll published Tuesday.

(Yes- we have only to look at the Locomotive factory in western Ontari-owe- that had its best/most profitable year ever- and its owners then told Cdn workers to either take a 50% pay cut -or lose their jobs!! And the workers refused and all were fired and the factory re-opened in United States- with MUCH LOWER PAY RATES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!)

The dour outlook persists in spite of the nationwide unemployment rate hitting a low of 5.4 per cent for the first time since that data was collected in 1976.

(Cdns who rent are very unhappy with the cost and condition of rental stock in Canada!! Break downs of elevators, fires, failures of heating units, bed bugs, cock-roachs; and my special favorite- the black sewage sludge that would block sinks and bath tubs for days at a time in a group of 26 story buildings on Bathurst St in Toronto where the drains would randomly STOP WORKING and sinks and bath tuns would fill up with black evil looking SLIME!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!)

(The repulsive slime would make it IMPOSSIBLE to do dishes or have a bath for a few days till it eventually drained off!! No doubt management blamed tenants for blocking the drains by flushing stuff they should not have- and tenants blamed owners for not making repairs- with NO SOLUTION ever offered!! Moving OUT was the only answer to such apparently grossly UNHYGIENIC CONDITIONS!!!)

(In an older low rise building- the hot water radiator heating system was leaking- resulting in boiling water dripping onto electrical wiring inside walls- why there was never a fire and nobody electrocuted is a mystery!! But it meant those living in the lowest floor dealt with falling ceilings and torn up rooms- water sometimes shut off and power frequently off- and rooms crowded with workers - just the sort of official confusion one does NOT want to find when coming home after a long work day!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!)

“I think what masks everything is the idea about precarious work where someone could be working but we don’t know if that’s an permanent job in the old-fashioned sense or if its precarious,” said Dr Lorne Bozinoff, president of Forum Research.

(Yes- as another example- General Motors Oshawa employees routinely won the HIGHEST MARKS for quality control in their work- yet they are now un - employed due to political and economic choices BEYOND THEIR CONTROL!! Being a reliable worker is NO LONGER ENOUGH as both GM and the Locomotive people can attest!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!)

Nearly two-thirds of Canadians, or 65 per cent of respondents, also believe the country has become more expensive to live in, while 29 per cent said it’s neither more nor less expensive.

(Yes- and LIE-berals EXPLOIT their Fake News- one employed Cdn in three works for one of the 4 levels of govt- and those civil service union HOGS are DOING JUST FINE- courtesy of relentless LIE-beral VOTE BUYING!! Naturally the other two Cdns out of three are being FORCED to subsidize this LIE-beral BRIBERY that constitutes a massive conflict of interest that ought to be banned!!)

(It`s just TO BAD that the officials who should be regulating this major conflict of interest happen to be HOGS who also benefit from the LIE-beral vote bribery!! Thus nothing is being done even as the debts MOUNT UP!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!)

Precarious work refers to freelancing, contract and part-time work. A Bank of Canada report from February found that almost a third of Canadians participate in precarious work. The report found the majority did so out of necessity rather than choice. The equivalent number of full-time jobs was estimated to be around 700,000.

While there are certainly economic downsides to precarious work, Craig Alexander, the chief economist at Deloitte, sees these downsides more for millennials as they struggle to find full-time jobs. For many baby boomers, it is the opposite.

“For part time work, the majority of the growth is by people aged 55+. A lot of older baby boomers that are leaving their primary careers are staying attached to the labour market in a tangential fashion,” said Alexander. “Similarly, if we look at the share of workers aged 55+ in temporary work we can see that there’s been a significant increase.”

(That boomers are taking part time work is NOT a good sign!! LIE-berals make NO DISTINCTION between a teacher who retires at 58 with a fabulous pension- and who continues to teach part time for something to do and to get a little “mad money/ versus the 55 year old worker whose job has DISAPPEARED and these workers MUST take on part time work because its all they can find!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!)

(LIE-berals make no distinction between the former Sears employee with a miserable bit of pension - or no pension at all- and the former civil servant who literally won a lottery with his pension!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!)

Alexander also notes that Statistics Canada does not produce data on how many people are involuntarily in temporary or contract work.

(LIE-berals do not want to talk about the Oshawa call centre that disappeared one sad weekend- leaving 500 employees coming in to work on Monday morning- only to find locked doors and two weeks pay MISSING!! And the call centre re-opened in Atlanta, Georgia courtesy of a nice Yankee govt GRANT!!!!!!!! !!!!!!)

Aside from precarious work, there are many potential causes for the disconnect between Canadians’ perceptions and the statistics presented. Dr Sherry Cooper, the chief economist at the Dominion Learning Centres, says Canada’s outlook is reflective of global changes.

“The oil sector has been in the doldrums for a long time. And then there’s the risk of trade concerns,” said Cooper. “We saw the trade data improve for the month of April but we’ve been sideswiped by the U.S. tariffs and by the risk of a trade war… we’ve all seen the difficulties in global geopolitical tensions, most of them the result of an unusually unstable U.S. diplomatic stance.”

(AND ALL our trade issues come back to LIE-beral CONTEMPT for national security issues!! RED China has just blocked shipments of Cdn meat- and this may be more retaliation for the arrest of Huawei chief Meng because of Huawei violations of United Nations Sanctions against Radical Muslim Iran!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!)

(China claims that food certificates with a shipment of Cdn Pork were forged- and may indicate skullduggery among pork producers and Cdn Inspectors???????)

(LIE-berals are spinning in circles- they want us to obey the United Nations recommendations regarding refugees and illegals but they DON’T want us to gripe about their deliberate fakery regarding illegals from safe countries!!!!!!!!!!!!)

(LIE-berals do not care about U.N. Sanctions against Iran and North Korea!! On the other hand LIE-berals DO SUPPORT the BDS Movement that seeks to starve out Israel because LIE-berals expect to get MORE VOTES from Muslims than Jews!!!!!!!!)

(LIE-berals want us to be tolerant of Muslim immigrants- and LIE-berals also want us to accept occasional acts of Muslim TERROR on our streets the same way we tolerate blizzards and tornados!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!)

(From this stuff we can see that there are influences on our lives that are WAY BEYOND being simply solved by being a good and reliable employee!! LIE-beral political choices are having an ever greater impact on our lives!!!!!!!!!!!!!!)

Cooper’s thoughts regarding the oil sector correlate with Bozinoff’s findings, where 45 per cent of Albertans were feeling job insecurity. The latest report finds Alberta’s unemployment rate at 6.7 per cent, behind only New Brunswick, Prince Edward Island and Newfoundland and Labrador.

(There is another LIE-beral choice that is beyond the reach of the good worker- it does not matter if Kinder Morgan gets built or not- oil consumption will remain the same in Canada!! But economic activity, standard of living and available work are being HEAVILY IMPACTED by LIE-beral imposed moral values that ARE NOT SHARED by the Cdn majority!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!)

Bozinoff also notes that the relationship between perceptions of job security and income levels was a perfectly linear one, with 54 per cent of people making less than $20,000 had a negative feeling, whereas 81 per cent of the wealthiest recipients felt secure.

(Sure, the low wage earner is in some retail occupation-dependent on Cdns with disposable income- if Cdns get stingy and stay home- then retail work dries up!!!!)

(One has only to look at former Privy Council Clerk Michael Wernick- called to testify over the Lavalin Scandal!! Wernick was ENTIRELY COMFORTABLE in lecturing and insulting ordinary Cdns about his support for the Lavalin Bribery!!!)

(Wernick exposed himself in testimony as a HUGE Horses ASS- out of touch with ordinary Cdn values- and then after exposing his HUGE BIASES - he retired on his wonderful govt pension - totally IMMUNE to the LIE-beral MESSES that he has obviously supported and encouraged for many years!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!)

Canadians are also feeling the pinch in their pocketbooks, with 65 per cent of recipients believing that the country has become more expensive to live in.

(Most of us have seen LIE-beral govts make choices that DRIVE UP the cost of living MUCH FASTER than we can recover with our earnings!! LIE-beral driven inflation IS NOT our friend!! LIE-berals ignore the reality that most Cdns are experiencing a DROP in living standard!!!!!!!!!!!!!)

Interestingly, the perception of whether or not Canada has become more expensive did not vary by income level. Voting intentions were also seen to correlate with perceptions around job security.

“You’ll find that supporters of three parties, the Liberals, Greens, and Bloc Québécois are feeling better about their job prospects,” said Bozinoff. “Less likely to feel good about their job security are Conservative and NDP supporters.”

(Yes- I know of several Green supporters- one a land surveyor, another a senior bank employee, the third a retired lady of SUBSTANTIAL FAMILY means who wants her quaint country retreat protected as a nature sanctuary for her benefit!!

(This is the reality - that LIE-berals and NDPers, Greenies and apparently Bloc heads as well- generally are frequently employed in Protected Industries that are IMMUNE to the usual market forces!! Meaning they benefit personally from a serious LACK of competition thanks to various LIE-beral economic choices!!!!!!)

An additional discovery of the poll was that 67 per cent of Canadians feel a recession is imminent within the next three years, with 21 per cent saying it is very likely. Only 12 per cent think a recession is not likely at all. Seventy-five per cent of Albertans think it is very likely. Cooper doesn’t think it is inevitable, but does not rule out the possibility.

(Debt in the western world is building steadily and cannot be piled up forever without occasional “corrections” such as the Dirty Thirties and the 2008 Mortgage Melt down!! With the 2008 Meltdown followed by a basically JOBLESS “recovery” in much of the country!! !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!)

(Cdns KNOW there will also be other more minor “corrections” such as the Greek debt issue- coupled with the general debt issue of the PIGS- Portugal, Ireland, Greece and Spain; or the Yankee Savings and Loan Trust Co. Disaster of the 1990`s; the collapse of NAFTA and the China trade war!!!!!!!!!!!!!!)

(With the confusion of Brexit marking a major turning point in rejection of LIE-beral values!! Sadly the cure for our various mostly LIE-beral imposed problems is almost as scary as the problems themselves!! The only certainty we have is that the longer we wait- the WORSE the cure will HURT - once we start repairing the LIE-beral political VANDALISM!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!)

'We' also know how to bury out collective head in the sand so deep only the asshole part of 'Canadians' is showing.

In terms of scandals, the sordid saga of Jeffrey Epstein has it all. Mysterious gaudy fortunes. Jet-setting debauchery. Lots of pretty girls—including very young girls. Sex and more sex, not necessarily legal or consensual. Add a battalion of VIPs, including billionaires, A-list celebrities, royalty and no less than two American presidents.
The only thing missing was espionage… and it’s not missing anymore.

This week, the Epstein story took center stage for all the reasons listed above. The surprise arrest of the 66-year-old admitted pedophile on Saturday night at New Jersey’s Teterboro airport, as he was headed home from Paris, reopened it all. The case had jumped in and out of the news since 2007, when Epstein admitted his affection for underage women to the Department of Justice, in exchange for lenient treatment.
The media has been agog since the weekend, as details of Epstein’s shocking private life are emerging. Public horror has followed—another alleged victim came forward just today, claiming Epstein raped her in 2002, when she was 15—and more seems certain to come.
The Justice Department unsealed its new indictment against Epstein on Monday, which focuses on that 2002 to 2005 period, when Epstein allegedly ran a secret empire devoted to moving underage girls between his New York and Florida residences, in order to sexually exploit them. Epstein’s life will never be the same.
But what was that life, really? That’s a key question which nobody has been able to publicly answer. How Epstein maintained his fantastically extravagant lifestyle has long been a topic of speculation and mystery. He claimed to have made his vast fortune as a financial guru to the super-rich, but nearly all of his clients were unnamed. Moreover, in a business where overwork is standard, Epstein seemed to have unlimited free time to pursue his avocation of obtaining “massages” from young women.
A major hint was dropped this week by Vicky Ward, the intrepid investigative journalist who has tried to expose the ugly reality behind the Epstein facade longer than anyone. In a report for the Daily Beast, Ward shed light on the Justice Department’s 2007 non-prosecution agreement with Epstein, that sweetest of sweet deals, since it got Epstein a laughably lenient sentence—for crimes which any normal person would have gone away for decades after admitting to.
Alexander Acosta, the current U.S. Labor Secretary, is in the hot seat, since a dozen years ago he was the U.S. Attorney for South Florida who cut that deal with Epstein. Ward explained the background of that deal, which is now a noose for Acosta. Specifically, she elaborated that the Epstein issue came up when Acosta was appointed to the cabinet by President Donald Trump. Ward writes:
He’d cut the non-prosecution deal with one of Epstein’s attorneys because he had “been told” to back off, that Epstein was above his pay grade. “I was told Epstein ‘belonged to intelligence’ and to leave it alone,” he told his interviewers in the Trump transition, who evidently thought that was a sufficient answer and went ahead and hired Acosta. (The Labor Department had no comment when asked about this.)
Wait, what?
So, Acosta, according to himself, backed off on prosecuting Epstein back in 2007, despite the possession of ample evidence proving his guilt, because he “belonged to intelligence.” Whose intelligence, exactly? is the first of many questions that arise here.
This claim was met with an appropriate degree of skepticism, and Acosta had a chance to explain what he meant in a press conference this afternoon. On camera, Acosta maintained that he did the best he could with that case, while admitting that it hardly looks like a fair punishment now.
The intelligence issue came up, and Acosta’s response was bizarre. He punted on setting the record straight, instead proffering this strange word salad when asked about Ward’s reporting:
So there has been reporting to that effect and let me say, there’s been reporting to a lot of effects in this case, not just now but over the years and, again, I would hesitant to take this reporting as fact. This was a case that was brought by our office, it was brought based on the facts and I look at the reporting and others, I can’t address it directly because of our guidelines, but I can tell you that a lot of reporting is going down rabbit holes.
To anyone acquainted with our nation’s capital, that’s a non-denial denial of an epic kind. Given the chance to refute Ward’s report, specifically that the Epstein case involved intelligence matters, Acosta did nothing of the sort. Indeed, he functionally admitted that it’s true.
What then can we conclude at this point? It appears that Jeffrey Epstein was involved in intelligence work, of some kind, for someone—and it probably wasn’t American intelligence either. The U.S. Intelligence Community is lenient about the private habits of high-value agents or informants, but they won’t countenance running sex trafficking rings for minors on American soil, for years. While it’s plausible that Epstein was sharing some information with the FBI—many criminals do so to buy themselves some insurance—it’s implausible that he was mainly working for the Americans.
