11:55 A.M. IT”S RIGGED !!! …

On Friday night, the $55 million Lotto Max jackpot found a home in Quebec. The ticket was purchased near Sherbrooke. The winning combination was 11, 12, 25, 28, 33, 41 and 43.  The identities of the winners remain unclear. So far, there have been 17 lottery winners in Quebec. Last January, a family spread out in St-Césaire and Bromont were the winners of the $60 million jackpot. Then, a month later in February, two ‘ K’bekkrs ‘ were also the lucky recipients of another $60 million lottery.

MORBNOTE ; It seems to me that maybe 2 … or 3 out of every jackpot winner ISN’T in K’Bekk !!! … Wonder how that works ?!!! …

4:46 P.M. Another good one from ‘ Knuckledraggin My Life Away ‘ …

SACRAMENTO (CBS13) — Faced with an urgent shortage of workers, California farmers are desperate to be heard. “If we can’t change the way we’re doing business, we’re at risk,” said Brad Goehring, a fourth-generation wine grape grower in Lodi. The state has been struggling with this farm labor shortage issue for years, but it’s gotten to a point where farmers are fed-up. As harvesting season gets underway, many growers in need of workers fear they may lose their crops, and President Donald Trump’s crackdown on immigration orders appears to only make matters worse.

And Kenny’s response ;

Let’s see, a shortage of workers to bring in crops and an overabundance of people on food stamps and welfare….. I believe the solution is right in front of their noses. Be a meanie and put the welfare people to work. It’s that simple.

1:14 P.M. Penguins “scrambling in terror” !!! …

Mar2015WAWHeader

Fans who attended the Stadium Series game last weekend at Heinz Field were treated to waddling penguins during the pregame show, but organizers are getting backlash from animal welfare activists. People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals is criticizing the Pittsburgh Penguins’ use of live penguins before the game against the Philadelphia Flyers.

“At Saturday’s Pittsburgh Penguins game, live penguins from the Pittsburgh Zoo & PPG Aquarium were paraded in front of the screaming crowd and (were) caught on camera scrambling in terror from a fireworks explosion,” PETA said in a news release. PETA representatives sent a letter to the hockey franchise, calling on the team to never again use live animals at Heinz Field. “It’s inherently stressful for wild animals like penguins to be hauled around, used as props and exposed to noisy crowds, with or without explosives going off,” PETA executive vice president Tracy Reiman said in the news release. “PETA is calling for the only Penguins on the ice at Heinz Field to be humans on skates.”

PETA’s letter to the Pittsburgh Penguins read, in part: “It’s inherently stressful for wild animals — who naturally shun contact with humans and are extremely sensitive to environmental changes — to be hauled around, used as props, and exposed to noisy crowds, with or without explosives going off. Hockey fans come to see talented athletes compete, not shy animals terrorized.   “Being held in captivity is stressful enough to make penguins susceptible to illness, and putting them in a crowded, noisy stadium only makes matters worse.” The Pittsburgh Zoo & PPG Aquarium responded, saying they worked with NHL officials to ensure the animals’ safety, which is their main priority. In a statement, a spokesperson said: “The NHL worked with us to ensure that the penguins would be safe and enjoy their visit to Heinz Field. The Pittsburgh Zoo was honored to be asked to be a part of the Winter Classic as well as celebrating the 50th anniversary of the Pittsburgh Penguins.   “The penguins who attended the Winter Classic are some of the same penguins that participate in our weekend Penguins on Parade event.  They are very comfortable around people and noises. In addition, it was a great enrichment opportunity for our penguins to be introduced to new sounds, sights, and smells.” In addition, zoo officials said, the penguins’ keepers and a senior veterinarian were with the penguins at all times on the ice. In response to PETA’s allegation that the birds were “scrambling in terror,” zoo officials said: “The loud pop from the pyrotechnical display temporarily startled the penguins and their first reaction, similar to a human’s when startled,  they flapped their wings. It was less than 10 seconds, and the penguins were back to normal and exploring and playing on the ice.”

MORBNOTE ;  Similar to when humans are startled ?!!! … Yeah … Every time I get ‘ startled ‘ I tend to flap my wings a bit too !!! …

9:45 P.M. Back to arguing over religious headwear at National Assembly !!! …

2015MThoughtsHeader

A motion honouring the victims of last week’s shooting at a Quebec City mosque was adopted unanimously this afternoon at the National Assembly. But the show of unity was fleeting, as Quebec’s political parties quickly resumed their negotiations over what religious symbols can be worn in public. It was the first sitting of the legislature following a two-month Christmas break, and the first since six Muslims were killed in the Jan. 29 mosque attack.  CBC’s full coverage of the Quebec City mosque attack Since the shooting, many politicians in Quebec have expressed solidarity with the province’s Muslim community and promised to strike a more inclusive tone when they discuss contentious identity issues. But with the Liberal government’s religious neutrality bill, Bill 62, currently before committee, opposition parties sought to wrangle concessions that would impose restrictions on what Muslim women can wear in public. Horse-trading after tragedy In its current state, the bill will force Quebecers to give and receive public services with their faces uncovered. But the bill also provides for certain religious exemptions, including for those who wear the niqab or burka.  On Tuesday, the centre-right Coalition Avenir Québec indicated they would be willing to drop their demand that primary and secondary teachers also be banned from wearing religious head-coverings. But, in return, they want the government’s bill to include provisions preventing visible religious symbols being worn by judges, Crown lawyers, police, prison guards and the president of the National Assembly — a proposal contained in the Bouchard-Taylor report on reasonable accommodation …

MORBNOTE ; This shit will never end !!! .. Until someone has the gonads to say FUCK ALL RELIGION !!! … Just get up and go to work and keep your own human created fantasies to yourself !!! …

When you have to be identified … YOU HAVE TO SHOW YOUR FACE !!! …  If you don’t like that … GO BACK TO WHERE YOU CAME FROM !!! … Oh … You didn’t like it there .. Well SUCK IT UP !!! … 

Stop fucking around in my neck of the woods !!!
