Thanks to Earthrise I can recreate the end of Return of Optimus Prime part 1.

I wish they would do something like that here: but then it would become obvious in which provinces you're getting gouged.

Here in Germany, the price you see is the price you pay, tax included.

Now that you have seen this Bass XO, you must send it to five other Bass XOs or BassXO will come to you in a week and then you too will be BassXO.

8ass X÷ has hijacked this conversation.

@  Bass X0 : (12 June 2021 - 03:37 AM)

Its Bass X0. I named myself after my three favourite Mega Man characters - Bass, X and Zero. I did consider going with Vile Bass X0, but that would have been going too far.

@  repowers : (11 June 2021 - 11:29 PM)

Bass XO has been trying to reach you about your car's extended warranty.

@  Echowarrior : (11 June 2021 - 09:25 PM)

Do not taunt Bass XO.

@  wonko the sane? : (11 June 2021 - 09:02 PM)

Please consult a technician before using Bass XO. Do not operate Bass XO while consuming alcohol.

@  TheMightyMol... : (11 June 2021 - 04:48 PM)

Nine out of ten doctors recommend Bass XO. The last doctor is on my list.

Bass XO is available at these fine retailers.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (11 June 2021 - 02:01 AM)

Bass XO is not to be confused with Bay Sexo.

@  Fenix Twilight : (10 June 2021 - 08:38 PM)

It's good to be back, after that outage I think I'll try to post more.

@  Steevy Maximus : (10 June 2021 - 12:16 PM)

I think Hasbro Pulse is broken. Dang Star Wars nerds!

Bass XO has 9" long, dagger-like teeth and a 12,000 lb. bite force

@  repowers : (08 June 2021 - 07:26 PM)

Bass XO doesn't feel pain. He can't be reasoned with!

@  TheMightyMol... : (08 June 2021 - 02:57 PM)

Bass XO has no known weaknesses.

@  Nevermore : (08 June 2021 - 06:15 AM)

Base XO is definitely unstoppable.

@  Donocropolis : (07 June 2021 - 04:30 PM)

What about magnets? No one knows how they work or what they can do.

There's been almost 50 years where in "les pur laines quebecois" have been convinced that they are NOT canadians. Right now, quebecois culture is basically all the hateful stuff of american culture, but in french.

And it turns out that canada is largely apathetic. A prosecutor whom had challenged quebec's commercial signs law (part of bill 101.) all the way up to canada's supreme court: will not have his day in court. They refuse to hear the case. Now, I am absolutely sure that someone told them "don't stir the pot", because hearing the case would have made it clear that there was unconstitutional things happening out here, and would have forced quebec to actually address the fact that bill 101 had expired: which would have led to a shit ton of other problems.

 

But hey, at least status quo only had a small number of english fleeing quebec annually, and doesn't hug with the value of the dollar.

It is, but what concerns me more is the day when they finally aren't. Even a people as passive and accustomed to taking it up the rear as Canadians generally have a breaking point. When we get to the point where the profiteering of the country's oligarchs is so blatant, and the corruption of the political-class that licks their boots (among other things) so hopelessly entrenched... well, it won't be the safest time to be alive, and I fear I'll be too old to be able to weather it successfully, to say nothing of helping them storm Ottawa and banish the politicians to rural China and the Northernmost regions of Russia.

The CAQ hasn't even started yet: and they've already announced that they plan to change the hiring practices for the appointed positions in government in the province. So stuff like heads of crown corporations (Hydroquebec.) police chiefs, and government positions. They've long held the idea that the liberals did partisan appointments to those position.

 

I guess now it'll just be racist hirings instead.

The CAQ is full steam ahead on it's call for secularism, but the crucifix in the provincial assembly isn't going anywhere! Why? Because it's "their culture"! It's literally the same bullshit as last time, and they haven't even bothered with a coat of paint. Get ready for more protests and riots.

I much prefer the concept of laisser faire: Since they're the ones who keep making this culture war bullshit an election issue. Seems like the only way to guarantee the quebecois vote in this century is to be racist.

Legault has made the statement that his priority is the economy and the health system: but he'll pass his secular charter with the not-withstanding clause if need be, and do it basically first thing in office. But the crucifix in the assembly hall stays.

 

Sure, it's pretty hugging apparent where his priorities are.

No, most of 'em are stupid enough that they wouldn't know laser fire from the wrath of god, and just assume they were right in the first place. They'd double down on the racism.
