When I look at contents of packaged foods on a nutrition label, the most important thing I care about is how much sugar is in the product. That’s because, for me, the sugar is what has the most impact of all the other items listed.
- I’m super fortunate not to have to worry about allergens.
- I generally get enough good nutrients that how much of that is not super important.
- I’m healthy enough, and have established a diet healthy enough, not to generally have to worry about bad fats (good summary of fats here);
- Sugar, everybody is prone to sugar, and easily prone considering how it’s practically everywhere!
So, the US is considering send troops to the Canadian US to intercept illegal migrants as part of that US’ response to the coronavirus pandemic.
Wait, are you kidding me? They think Canadians want to escape our relatively under control COVID-19 situation, with universal healthcare, to go to their pandemic that’s probably out of control already, about to surpass China’s global total and become the #1 country for cases? And that’s only what they’ve tested for. Seriously? Is that how deranged that administration down south is???
They might consider putting troops there to keep their citizens at home, from fleeing to a less infected country with better healthcare system. In the same way draft dodgers came up here during the Viet Nam War to escape their policies at the time, there are probably a lot of people thinking of running to a safer haven in Canada to escape COVID-19! If anything, though I’m suggesting Canada do this, we should be putting troops on our borders to keep out potentially infected Americans from coming up!
As for that wall down south in Mexico, the Mexicans have declared Americans unwanted now and are probably grateful some of that wall got built. They may even be regretful a better one Trump proposed didn’t actually get done. Be careful what you wish for, I guess.
Canada just revealed its new $10 bill, and it features a black woman on it, Nova Scotia’s own civil rights activist, Viola Desmond. It is also vertical in orientation while all the currency traditions were being turned on their heads! I think the bill is absolutely beautiful and I’m gonna be rocking it when it comes out around Christmas, 2018!
You know how some people flaunt cash in $20 bills, or maybe $50 or $100 bills? Well, I’ll be flaunting my new $10 bills like that! I’ll carry only $10 when I can, opting out of larger bills, and only carrying $5 bills when I get them as change. I might even spend the $5 bills a little frivolously every now and then to get rid of them, or make an extra purchase so as to get less than $5 in change back… all for the sake of “image” as the $10 guy, and helping the economy with a little extra expenditure. 😉
Canada is planning to legalize marijuana, also known as cannabis, in 2018. Among the many issues of concern is quality control, because if government will be selling it, there has to be some quality control standards. Those standards can be expected to be good, too! Canadian cannabis is going to be known for its quality!
So I thought why not just brand it? Since the two words Canada and cannabis start with the same sounding syllables, with slightly different spelling to make a portmanteau sort of pun from it, that works orally as well as written, why not?
Canabis would be cannabis from Canada with all its positive qualities!
