Labels: Disdain them — except one Bob Langert Mon, 07/06/2020 - 01:45 A longtime friend told me he was Christian and couldn’t support Democrats because it violated his principles. Then I heard a news update that Republicans were trying to ax Obamacare. I think I’m an Independent.  I’ve been spending more time contemplating the racial problems our country faces. I admire the friends and family that have posted Black Lives Matter signs. I just read "White Fragility," and it infused me with thoughts that challenged my privileged white life. I hadn’t thought I was a racist, but I now realize I am because I’m part of a systemic white-dominant society by default. Truly. And it’s got to change, including me. I’ve thought of myself as young. But now I get up in the morning and hobble about until I’ve warmed up my body to stand straight. Labels. Can’t stand them. Listening to the radio the other day I heard an ad that said, "All of us use social media way too much." How do they know that about me? I’m not too ...

Why are Conservative-run Canadian provinces turning down federal cash? The answer's in the Republican playbook 22.7.2019 rabble.ca - News for the rest of us
David J. Climenhaga When Prime Minister Justin Trudeau observed back on April 16 that the Ontario provincial government led by Premier Doug Ford was throwing roadblocks in the way of Ontario municipalities accessing federal money for needed transportation infrastructure, Conservatives responded with angry denials, and not just in Ontario. The prime minister had told a news conference Kitchener, Ontario, that over the previous year Ford's Conservative government hadn't approved a single infrastructure project for which federal funds were available. Trudeau called this an example of Ford's government "letting down Ontarians." Ontario Infrastructure Minister Monte McNaughton characterized the PM's comment as "a desperate attempt to change the channel," a phrase that was quickly picked up and repeated by Conservative echo chambers in media and on social media. But surely this little blip on the political radar, soon forgotten in the news coverage of the Alberta general election results that evening, from ...
