‘Tell it like it is’ is a collection of (often) angry op-ed letters from various sources, some real and some highly questionable. But they amused us, so we posted them.
That’s it, I’ve had it! This country’s falling apart, and it’s not from a pandemic, but a PLANTdemic … The wheels are coming off the train, the train is going off the tracks, and once again the Liberals are to blame.
Just last week, the local Dairy Queen – which has been in the neighbourhood for 43 YEARS – closed down, and what’s going to be put in it’s place? Not even one of those godforsaken Vegan restos, but an even more dismal purveyor of invasive foliage. That’s right, YET another MARIHUANA DISPENSARY!
As if two in the district wasn’t already enough – surely it can’t be that popular, can it? What happened to hardworking men (and women, if they behave) enjoying a beer and some cable after a grueling seven hour shift? What, are these reefer loving losers suddenly too good for a six pack of Molson’s and a Vin Diesel movie all of a sudden?
No, they can’t afford cable and two cases a week apparently (work harder or go to school and get a better job, then you can). So dope and Netflix it is. Instead of spending hours in the kitchen lovingly crafting a feast every night like a real family, they’ll order delivery over some ‘App’, so they have more time to play those damn video games, which rot your brain almost as fast as the Jazz Cabbage will. Worse yet, it’s not just the kids, it’s the so-called adults now too, and they even play WITH the kids sometimes! Act your age!
Just last year, I was walking to the bank to cash my checks when I saw my third son’s sixth grade second semester assistant teacher lighting up a ‘doobie’ on her dog walk, not even three kilometres from the school itself! Bad enough some friggin’ pothead is looking after a dog, but my kid? It’s utterly appalling. Sneaking a shot or two of whiskey between classes I could forgive perhaps, but The Devil’s Lettuce, in public no less? Have these fools no shame? I can’t even report her, and the woman looks about 26, for crying out loud! How do people like this even get hired?
I don’t understand why this cannabis crap is so popular, all it seems to do is mellow people out and make them stay in. Fellas nowadays argue on the web like whiny little maggots, instead of getting slaughtered in the bar and having a good old fashioned brawl outside it, sleeping it all off on a park bench, and then lying about it all to the wife, like men. That’s life experience there, the real stuff, not baking your brains out and playing Mortal Combat.
Then what about the women? If they’re off walking down the Garden Path to Ruin, who’s going to look after the kids (as if kids aren’t messed up enough these days)? Might as well call it CAN’Tabis.What’s becoming of society? Too weak, too lazy, and it’s only going to get worse now that this weed is everywhere. When did weeds become good?
If we should be ‘canceling’ anything, it’s these darn dispensaries. If people want to waste their day (and their brain cells), let them get off their soft behinds for once and go find a street corner – they could certainly use the exercise. This legal pot nonsense stinks, LITERALLY, and I’ve had enough if it.
