***Not Quite Threadworthy May 2021***

Recommended Posts

Any talk of these 2 stories?

 

Belarus stopped a RyanAir flight from Greece to Lithuania on the premise of a bomb threat but pulled off a prominent critic of the Belarus President.  Insane story.

 

21 ultramarathon runners in China died during a race when the weather turned nasty and organizers took 5 hours to provide assistance.

Political figures aside.  I have to say that for e and my family, the covid relief kept us afloat.  I have been out of work since December 23.  I just started back last week.  It's a decent job in construction and roadwork.  

 

Here's how I have benefitted:  alaska got a lump of cash from the cares act.  They got their shit together and offered rent relief.  I just got approved for 5 months of rent payments.  April thru August.  My viper of a landlord was pussed I went behind during the approval process,  but now is all smiles knowing she is banked thru the summer.  

 

Depending on my opportunity for work the rest of the summer, I qualify for 3 more months.

 

Before you bash my path, look at the financial impact of covid on the alaskan cruise line's industry.   And our only road is closed due to the Canadian border being closed.

 

That is all.  And thank to you guys who have been supportive over the last 5 months.  OT rocks.  please come to alaska and help our businesses out.

I've been to Skagway and understand exactly what things could be like there without the cruise ships. Never in my life do I recall the government just voluntarily throwing money at average Americans to keep them afloat and keep the economy from collapsing. In this case that's obviously what was needed and it's great that you got the aid your family needed. 

 

The congress just passed legislation that allows for Alaska cruises without the need to stop at Canadian ports (which are closed for a year). Hopefully you guys will be back to full speed in June, height of tourist season.

This story is fucked. Apparently border patrol can just do this and its legal. 
 

The officer escorted me to a private room that reminded me of a police station -- small and bare, with no TV, nothing on the walls, empty but for a single officer sitting at a desk. Without explanation, the officers seized my phone and laptop and demanded I unlock them, then took the devices out of my sight for searching while I was interrogated in another room. They could have easily found the answers to their questions with a Google search. All I could do was wonder and worry. Was I in trouble? Did I have the same name as somebody else? It was terrifying. Two hours later, they returned my phone.

For some reason our 4th amendment rights don't apply within 50 miles of our borders.

 

Hopefully it's successfully challenged in the supreme court

Florida though, don't they lead the world in teachers fucking students?

 

If the girls are walking around half naked that probably won't help reduce that stat.
