Countries that are doing well should be proud of their effort. Conversely, countries where its citizens act like spoiled brats who don't care about anyone but themselves and listen to an idiot instead of following science should be ashamed. Over the weekend I mistakenly went into a food store aisle from the wrong direction and was called out. I felt so foolish. Yet there are others who think they have a Constitutional right to possibly kill me. What a country.

I agree 100%. What I don't get is people that make jokes about the Countries that are doing well.

What a Country.

The first thing I noticed about the picture you posted was that it looked like it was staged.
If it was a pic of american "rednecks" They would be touting .45's and doubtfully wearing a mask.

Gotta be so careful, Australia looked like we had it licked. Then a few private security guards at hotel quarantine decided to ignore what little training they had (including getting jiggy with the customers) and took it home to their extended families. Now an entire state is locked down.

He could also slam the most beer of us all. He said he was sick of the oppressive heat he was going to go to a much cooler climate.

200% authentic. Taken during a 2009 tour of the Glacier-Waterton Loop. It was Sparwood Days. How else would I know what Overwaitea is? We camped at the municipal campground on the edge of town. In the middle of the night two drunks were professing their commitments to Adolph Hitler.

Did they have Donald Trump as their fearless leader?

...can I still make regular Canada jokes, as long as they don't talk about the pandemic ? I would miss Canada humor.

Donít believe he has ever been the PM of Canada. Who was in 2009? Paul Martin, maybe?

Two Americans charged with quarantine violation in Ontario, face $1K fine

People have to realize this whole thing is not political but medical.

A surprising number of people have difficulty understanding the process of exponential growth.

Give me a penny today, 2 tomorrow, 4 the next day, keep doubling that each day and after a month I'll give you one million dollars and explain exponential growth to you.
