headline.....Farm groups want action on blockades

Feb 14, 2020 | 21:12 1 I am beginning to think we should join the blockades....what would be the downside?


We are getting phucked by everyone asking for them to take down the blockades including the farm groups ....

Its time to join them and assert some intelligence from farmers that we are sick of taking it.....

this ought to be an interesting conversation....always like to stir the pot Reply With Quote

    I agree, let them continue. Its the only way to wake up eastern Canada. Quebec, Ont and Maritimes affected now.

    I've got a cash advance, I can watch the bins for a few more months. That's worth seeing skippy get raked. Reply With Quote

    Farmers could have so much fun...we are already considered assholes to the general public... why not show them how big of assholes we can be? Reply With Quote

    Government help doesn't always mean financial. ...for CN it may be using force....while for farmers it maybe financial....

    I think farmers are missing an opportunity to get government attention.... Reply With Quote

    Feb 15, 2020 | 03:07 9 What we need is a college kid in agriculture to stare at a chief the wrong way at a crossing so CBC can report it.....


    Hahaha....that will do it....maybe he would make Outstanding Young Farmer...

    The one thing for certain since the AFN is suing for 10 billion. ...these protests are going to be very profitable for the natives when Trudeau gets home.....

    I say we hang on to the indigneous people's coat tails for some scraps.....

    Why at 3 in the morning do I do some of my best thinking?


    BTW the farm groups have to change their MO ( Modus Operandi) if they want any recognition....because what they are doing .....ain't working...with any stripe of government....

    Feb 15, 2020 | 08:01 13 Western Canadian farmers use to hold protest rallies back in the 80s and 90s. Quebec farmers were just holding protests against the railways this fall in Ottawa.

    Western Canadian farmers are so divided on everything. You got the WCWGA being sponsored by big Ag companies and the railways, do you think any of their members would ever protest?

    Agriville is the only place any protesting ever happens. Reply With Quote
    Feb 15, 2020 | 08:03 14 This whole mess is a direct result of the incompetence of Trudeau's government....consultations should have started with the hereditary chiefs long ago and once they signed off ...in writing...and witnessed....with a smudging ceremony....then the band chiefs with the same procedure....

    Alll they created was an excuse to do nothing and continue to run this country into the poorhouse....

    I don't care if this goes on for a while....a few more people need to feel the pain from the incompetent assholes in Ottawa...

    While the chiefs have an issue they should just be put on the list.....because farmers have been trying to get something on trade and BRMs for years...

    Someone give them a number..... Reply With Quote

    There are people out there that keep other people debt-ridden? What a$$holes! How do they do it? Do the give them and credit card and threaten to kill their family if they don't use it? Do they beat the shit out of them until they go buy a new truck or combine?

    Jesus, I had no idea there were such sick fuucks around doing this stuff to people. I will be watching for them now. Reply With Quote

    And don't have to do it like old days, chem follow or strip till 50/50. Seeding with drills and straight cutting has opened a lot of options. Reply With Quote

    Feb 16, 2020 | 19:43 21 What I find odd is how quiet the Frogs have been this whole time. The Far-Easterners are crying about shortages but not even a croak out of the Frogs. Usually they have a vocal opinion on anything that doesn't concern them. Reply With Quote

    A significant number of us have been involved in organizing around anti-capitalism, migrant justice, Indigenous sovereignty, low-income housing, homelessness and the Downtown Eastside,” she said. “A second layer is youth who have been activated through climate justice stuff in the past year.”

    Thanks to Greta, Canada coming apart!
