Canada Freedom Convoy

This is the place to debate politics, global warming, and yes, even the origin of man, whatever. Simply put, if you want to argue about off topic stuff, you've found the right board. Have fun!

I can't work up any empathy for a privileged white guy who complains about the very system designed to suit his needs. Especially when he complains about poor people getting cheap insurance or teachers unuionizing. Why would anyone call a white guy a "racist" when he expresses support for the idea that white parents should be able to move their children to a "more desirable" school district, even though it deprives the original, poorer district of funds. Your arguments are all bluster and no substance. Lots of regurgitated conservative dog whistling and little thought.

Black parents in inner city schools, which have failed for decades should be able to move their children to white schools which have been succeeding for those same decades. They should be able to apply the funding to predominantly white private schools.

This isn't a tool white parents need. This is a tool Black parents need.

How much more clear can I be on that?

How the fuck do poor black people "move their children to white schools which have been succeeding"? Does the school bus go that way? Do poor people have resources to drive kids tens of miles each day? where do they get these resources from? Get your head out of your ass.

Are there no white schools in cities? Can kids not take city buses to white schools when they already take them to black schools? Can parents not at least be able to pick out the more successful schools they have access to and send their children to THOSE schools using transportation they already use?

Is the only solution the status quo?

Children all over the world (the U.K. for instance) take public transit to schools.

Washington, DC, provides free bus and rail passes to all
traditional and charter school students, and it provides bus passes to private school students.
This can be done, but you have to want to do it.

Listen, I appreciate your ski related content and admire your career path. You seem intelligent and self-aware. But your arguments are so unbalanced and vapid that honestly, I don't see the point. You need higher quality acquaintances or media inputs.

this article has all the details: dude in charge of the US version of the freedum convoy: got flat tires, had nobody else show up, got lost on the way to DC and even includes fun info about how the dude didn't spellcheck before having having giant banners printed. How the fuck can you fight tyranny when you can't even be bothered to spell it correctly? These people don't even know what they are protesting outside of literally mah freedumz. Absolute incompetence and utter stupidity without even a whiff of embarrassment or self-awareness. master race indeed.

Wow.

"People now say: Well, those ‘Freedom Truckers’ sure picked a bad week to try and get attention for being victims of tyranny,” wrote one Trucker fan annoyed by the war in Ukraine. “They are starting to twist the events by saying oh our suffering is somehow much less. NO IT IS NOT!”

The U.S. Freedom Convoy is different than the Candadian one. There is no vaccine mandate on those truckers right now. I don't think they will risk their jobs or getting felonies. If you think everything going on in your country is great, and you like your new "dictator" than carry on.
