The title says it all, our world is not what it could be or should be.  Therte are various 'so-called leaders who profess to be doing the 'right' thing to defend their countries, but in actual fact the truth is greed, imperial advancement and acquisition of resources the do not belong to them.  Russia is clearly guilty of this right now with the invasiuon of Ukraine, and China, under another despotic leader, is seeking to do the same in Taiwan and other Pacific nations who do NOT need ...
Vmedia Canada 🇨🇦  Is New With Hiccups Vmedia lacks certain instructions when dealing with their services but they are willing to make it right somehow.They offered me 3 months of 20 dollar discount instead of the 100 dollar bill credit.With that being said I'd rather not switch but it's harder to want to refer people now knowing I was told I should ask people to get on the telephone Instead of doing it online. They're a newer company that lacks manpower but that could change one...
Vmedia Canada Does not Deliver & Offers Mere Carrots On Stick Offers Promotional Program Takes Zero Notes Bad Customer Service I signed up with Vmedia Come February 12th was my installation date and I signed up easily with a promotional offer while they offer their promotions 90% of the time the experience is the pure carrot on a stick they are not offering you anything special from the rest they are limiting you. Crippling you. Their prices are not cheap enough to be competitive and the...

I am posting these vids with the hope that we do not get any flamewars in here (if people start getting nasty I will lock this thead ASAP). But this channel, normally a gaming channel, has been making some videos analysing the macroscale actions of Russia and the realities of logistics and forward planning. They are FASCINATING even if you are not interested in military procurement etc.

I think the title [and sub-title] pretty much explains it....and BTW, this is not a political post, but rather a sad look at world events. I have been following the news on events regarding Russia's dealings with the Ukraine and it has me quite worried that a full scale invasion will trigger WWIII... and then there's the lunatic in the East showing aggression to Taiwan and other neighbours in Asia. Frankly, these are not the best of times to be alive, what with these two crackpots who coul...

Many years ago, I came to Joeuser out of loneliness. My husband was on yet another deployment and I was in a strange new city with two young children. I needed adult interaction online while building RL relationships in our new community. I stayed for the varied viewpoints, interesting topics and people. I don’t know if it is just me, but I tend to associate in real life with people who share the same values I do. We don’t agree on everything. Who does? But, there are fundament...

A startling metamorphosis has occurred. A new mutated strain of Covid has emerged and it is noted for being even more contagious and causing even more hysteria than the original. Victims of the strain were last seen murmuring things like, look at how irresponsible they are, and charge those who let their nose slip out of the mask with attempted murder!

Its amazing how misinformed and misguided the people are in the face of this Covid virus. It doesn't take much fearmongering and gaslighting to convince normally rational people to comply with lock downs and arbitrary demands that are like something out of a science fiction movie or novel. It really goes to show that even in 2020, the human mind is still a primitive and superstitious thing, and it doesn't take much to incite a mob of rabidly frothing villagers wielding torches and pitchforks lik...

We've always lived as humans with the threats of illness and sickness, so its a bit of a surprise to see the establishment of police state lockdowns in the world such as in the UK, especially when there is no evidence that such extremist measures even work to save lives. Its also amusing to see the so called left, the people who are allegedly sensitive to rising fascism and authoritarianism, cowing in fear and jumping through hoops like obedient trained circus animals to be the first to demand e...

Maybe there are some people out there who actually believe that Joe Biden won the election. I find that staggering. I remember when I woke up at about 3 AM and saw the straight line up for Biden in Wisconsin and I knew that it was impossible. I also knew that the remaining states would probably also disallow Republicans to see the count and that the election was being stolen. Its unlikely that any Republican will ever receive 74 million votes again, it was landslide stuff. Trump should never con...

Now that he has lost his primary employment and source of income, it has been rumoured that Donald Trump has approached a world-wide hair transplant company for a new job.  Being the proud wearer of a thatched roof for some decades, and having spent hundreds of thousands on hair care, the executives at A&M may consider him for an ambassadorial role with the company. However, prior to signing him up, they may demand he either ditches his Twitter account or stops posting outrageous twe...

I view BLM and the rest of the rioters as an abusive, entitled, obnoxious mob. If I were to feel sympathy for people of color it would probably be for people like the Yazidis, who in 2014, while Obama and the left yawned and shrugged their shoulders, were murdered and buried alive while the women were all sold into slavery. I would also feel pretty bad for the Christian girls in Africa who were stolen and enslaved by Boko Haram. I could probably find other examples of people who actually live in...

Has anyone else noticed that the nature of the reported statistics on covid-19 has subtly changed over the course of the pandemic? I'm sure things are different from one state to the next but at least in Massachusetts we started off reporting new hospitalizations of confirmed COVID-19 cases and then switched to reporting new hospitalizations of confirmed AND SUSPECTED covid-19 cases then at some point stopped publicly reporting new confirmed and suspected covid-19 hospitalizations and instead...

Father and son Bush have hit the news for calling Trump a "blowhard". Even more shocking, but not surprising, they voted for Hillary Clinton because their paltry feelings were hurt by the trouncing low energy Jeb! received at the tiny hands of Trump. All through the Obama years Bush 43 claimed he would be classy and not criticize anyone in the office. So even when Christians in Iraq were being slaughtered in the streets because Obama cut and ran, there wasn't so much as a peep from the ve...
