1:51 P.M. The world’s goin’ down the YOUTUBES !!!…

‘ Youtube filtered my channels to keep them from getting views ! ‘ one of the many text messages on the site said … ‘ There is no equal growth opportunity on YOUTUBE or any other video sharing site , your channel will grow if they want to !!!!! ‘ …

People who post on YouTube can receive money from advertisements that accompany their videos , but the company ‘ de-monetizes ‘ some channels for reasons including inappropriate material or having fewer than 1,000 subscribers. Aghdam ‘ hated ‘ YouTube and was angry that the company stopped paying her for videos she posted , her father , Ismail Aghdam , told the Bay Area News Group …

This just appears to be some crazy wog bitch that wasn’t very good at what she was attempting to do and when she realized she wasn’t getting rich quick off it she blames everyone else … She certainly looks psycho !!! …

1:39 P.M. ‘ Car biz is hell ’: Elon Musk …

Tesla’s Model 3 production ‘ hell ‘ continues. Elon Musk , in a testy Twitter exchange , said he is ‘ back to sleeping at the factory ‘ while trying to fix production delays with the Model 3 electric car. It’s a move reminiscent of Tesla’s last vehicle launch , the Model X … When Musk famously kept a sleeping bag near the production line so he could immediately address any hiccups.

‘ Car biz is hell ‘ Musk said. The posts on Twitter came as investors awaited Tesla’s first-quarter production numbers , which fell short of the company’s forecasts. The exchange , with a reporter at The Information , a tech and business news site , followed a story by the outlet that Musk had taken over Model 3 production from Tesla’s head of engineering , Doug Field.  For the last year , Field has managed engineering of both the vehicle and its production. Musk said Field had originally been tasked with both jobs to ensure Tesla doesn’t design cars that are ‘ crazy hard to build ‘ but now that Tesla was back in the thick of production , ‘ it’s better to divide and conquer ‘…

Tesla falls short on Model 3 production target , but shares are going up anyway. Elon Musk makes light of Tesla’s troubles in April Fool’s bankruptcy tweets … Elon Musk is today’s Henry Ford … That’s not a good thing …

Tesla built 2,020 Model 3 cars in the last seven days , trailing its target for a 2,500-unit rate for the final week of March. Tesla delivered 8,180 of the sedans in the first three months of the year , missing analysts’ average estimate for about 8,800 units in a Bloomberg News survey. Despite the shortfall , Musk promised a speedy acceleration in the next three months. Tesla shares opened up as much as 6.9 per cent and gained 2.2 per cent to US$258.11 as of 9:47 a.m., regaining some ground after a 22 per cent slump in March.

Elon’ showing the world that even billionaires have to work hard at times …

1:28 P.M. Wednesday afternoon musings …

A Quebec town’s street-name change is forcing a confrontation with history … The name of Sir John Colborne is set to be removed from a street and park in Chambly , a town near Montreal. The British military officer played a role in suppressing a French-Canadian rebellion 180 years ago. And while he’s regarded by historians as an able commander , he’s remembered much differently in Quebec. Chambly’s mayor has said having his name on signage is like having a street named for Hitler in Israel , according to a local media report. But the local historical society says this is an attempt to whitewash the past. Chambly , noted the society’s president , is named for a French army officer who was sent to Quebec to exterminate the Iroquois …

MORBNOTE ; First of all … It’s typical KbecWAH! style to overreact by comparing this to Adolph Hitler ! … And secondly , one tends to notice their convenient memory loss of Chambly’s participation in the ‘ extermination of the native Iroquois ‘ … Can’t handle it being named after a British soldier ( without whom , the French wouldn’t have a thing to do with this country ) but have no problem changing the name to one of their own who murdered the indigenous people of the area …

Canada has offered to resettle nearly 2,000 African asylum seekers from Israel. Federal officials say the deal is still on the table despite Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s quick turn-about on a United Nations agreement to relocate thousands more to Western countries. The Canadian offer , which was pitched independently by Ottawa, came two months ago after Israel said it planned to deport African migrants to third-party countries in Africa. After that expulsion plan was met with legal obstacles , Israel worked out a deal with the UN to relocate 16,250 of about 39,000 people from Eritrea and Sudan. But hours after Netanyahu announced the deal , he said he was freezing it because of backlash from Israelis upset that 18,000 migrants would stay in the country temporarily. Meanwhile , Israel’s military has rejected fresh allegations that its army used excessive force against unarmed Palestinians during Gaza protests that left 18 dead. Netanyahu’s government has defended the army’s actions , with the defence minister saying ‘ our troops deserve a medal ‘. Here’s Doug Saunders’s take on the Gaza violence : ‘ By removing the promise of a Jerusalem capital from its scanty collection of bargaining chips , Washington no longer appears to have much leverage to bring Netanyahu to compromise with the Palestinians and his response on the weekend made that abundantly clear ‘…

MORBNOTE II ; Junior’s up to it again !!! … Grabs up all the wogs he can … Gives ’em ‘ vote Liberal ‘ gift packs and costs us all hundreds of thousands per more !!! … It’s also interesting to know the true political stance of the Americans all these years … The States have continuously used the  ‘ carrot ‘ of a ‘ future ‘ Israel ownership of Gaza to dangle in front of them … Old Doug pretty much sums that up noting that Trump has given it to them …

Pride Toronto doesn’t want Toronto police marching in this year’s paradePride issued a statement calling on the Toronto police to withdraw its application to march over the force’s handling of missing-persons cases from the city’s Gay Village, many of which have since been linked to alleged serial killer Bruce McArthur. Pride said the LGBTQ community’s concerns were dismissed by officers who already had a strained relationship with marginalized people. This isn’t the first time Pride has been at odds with the Toronto police: In 2016, Black Lives Matter interrupted the parade with demands that included an end to uniformed police participation.

MORBNOTE III ; If I was in charge of the cops I’d just tell them ‘ We’ll be there doing our job , as usual , regardless of actively being IN the parade or along side it … Ready to arrest any individuals who dress inappropriately , loot , obstruct … whatever ‘ …
