Almost as crazy as mainstream progressives.
Everything I don't like is a meme.

I'm sure even Lenin himself would shudder at the political viewpoints of progressive Canadians.

If you don’t want me to think you’re a meme, don’t post stuff like this.

You’re far too biased for your opinion on anything political to matter.

This job is chill as hell. It’s kinda similar to the other one, but they have resources and troubleshooting guides embedded in each ticket that comes in, suggested fixes etc.. The best part is I don’t have to answer any phones.

In each of those times we successfully avoided nuclear war.
I dunno, Putin is still saying he'll totally start a nuclear war. Postponing it while giving him time to grow stronger (regardless of whether he squandered it) doesn't seem to have worked out so far.
My nephew is convinced we are all about to die in a thermonuclear war (he’s an adult by the way, and he is prone to doom-mongering). I don’t think so because even if Putin is mad enough to push the button, which I doubt, in real life he doesn’t actually have a button. There are some checks and balances even in Russia and when push comes to shove I don’t think they’d actually launch. Prove me wrong, boys, prove me wrong!

Russia’s rhetoric is pretty effective. They are playing up their crazy villain persona that we see them as.

They sent me a 32 inch monitor even though it’s an on-site job. Maybe it’s so I can look up microchips and whatnot at home.

After all, men can get pregnant too these days.

I'd completely forgotten about this. Yeah, I guess it's not a women only issue anymore.

How many people would choose to be retroactively aborted? Probably about as many as the suicide rate, which is about 1 in 10,000 in the US. If there was a way to give the baby a choice, most would choose to be born. Still, I’m not entirely pro-life from a legal standpoint. I think it’s wrong, but probably shouldn’t be illegal. Maybe just let women decide on it.

It looks like that dude is just a Putin clone. A possible upside is that he surely doesn't have manlet syndrome.

So instead of flooding somewhat trained soldiers into a meat grinder, they’re going to flood totally untrained soldiers into it.

There’s also this

I wonder if all the rich lefties are going to return their Teslas now. Freedom of speech is literally Hitler.

Given that Russia can't even hold a city 50 miles from its border, you really think that their nuclear arsenal is capable of anything? Nuclear weapons are incredibly expensive to maintain. Submarines even more so. Russia can't afford to keep a single aircraft carrier operational annually. Their nuclear arsenal is likewise just a bunch of numbers on paper. They're not real. It costs the US approximately 50 billion dollars to maintain nuclear capabilities. That's almost the entirety of Russia's military budget.

Russia keeps threatening use of nuclear weapons. "We'll nuke Ukraine!" ... "We'll nuke Finland if they join NATO!" ... Well, guess what. I don't see any nukes. Russia a bad joke and it's time we deliver the punchline to their face.

Let's not do that either, though. You know, just in case they actually do work. If even 10% of them work it would be a bad time.

Russia has a devastating nuclear sub fleet, that can sit right off my coasts not detected.

Yes, and if they were actually that crazy they could just threaten nukes for anything.
"Give us this trade deal or else"
"Move US military bases out of Europe or else" etc...

Acquiescing to their every demand would be just as dangerous as marching US soldiers to Moscow.


35
Russia got what they wanted. NATO isn't interfering directly. It's not anyone else's fault that their military sucks ass.

Putin doesn’t even have good sources for his own military operation.

You care about Canadian truckers, but for some reason you don't care about an actual dictator taking rights away from a democratic country by using missiles and tanks.

38
If they really wanted to make some big city moves, NK would just start artillerying SK, China would take Taiwan, and Russia would keep rolling their tanks to Paris. And there's not a lot anyone could do about it.

Well this aged poorly. Russian tanks appear to be made out of cardboard.

So, a lot of this is perfectly true and valid, but I don't suppose you happen to have a time machine to do anything about it?

I just think your money would be better spent in your own country rather than sending it to a lost cause. We’re probably in for another Cold War, this time possibly against China as well. We should probably try to be in the best economic situation possible.

$0, I'm probably not gonna win this game with that attitude. Also, progress log.

The Russians will just seize the money when they eventually take over the capitol.

I’ve also been a huge proponent of having strong deterrence against Russia in Europe for the longest time for situations exactly like this. Europe has been in lala land, cutting their military budgets and relying on the US and the UK for their defense needs so they can move that funding to comfy social programs. Donating a few bucks when the enemy is already breaking down your door just seems kind of silly to me, that’s all.
