Vancouver Bans Dorrknobs; Communism Imminent


Boogalou

Recommended Posts

The city of Vancouver has gotten rid of all the doorknobs in city hall and has banned them in their building code for accessibility. Clearly, this means socialism and communism. Or something. Some nice sane comments illustrating the sheer horror of such an unspeakable act:

Nanny State socialists, taking away yet another right to choose - for your own good!

For all you complacent imbeciles and useful idiots out there who are letting them get away with this, you deserve what's commin' down the pike...

The utopians in gov't in Vancouver continue their endless social engineering project. You would hope that eventually the electorate their might decide they prefer their personal liberty to having their lives run by 'their betters' who know what's good for them.

Someone says something non-alarmist:

Oh people wake up, we are now in the 21st century. The ergonomic handle will be better for all. The rest of the improvements that are being done to this city will vastly improve the quality of life in this city for many years to come. Vancouver will be hailed as a pioneer in the new millennia and we will look back and be proud to say we were there.

Which someone disagrees with because people who use doorknobs will be executed:

The state's guns looks no different now than they did in the 20th Century. So here is how it will work out if someone decides not to abide with this edict:

Vancouver: We demand you replace all your doorknobs!

Homeowner: I'm not replacing all my doorknobs.

Vancouver: You have to or you will be fined!

Homeowner: I'm not going to pay your stupid fine

Vancouver: Then we will send men with guns to your house and have you thrown into a cage!

Homeowner: I won't let you throw me into a cage.

Vancouver: Then we will authorize those men shoot you if you resist!

Is that what you consider "pioneering" and something to be proud of, Glen?

Dear God, I really hope that is satire.

Anyway, I just thought the comments were kind of amusing and just a tad excessive. It is kind of sad that they got rid of all the nice old door knobs in city hall. Hopefully they preserve them as it would be a shame to lose that history.

I don't know...these comments sort of remind me of the comments on Amazon's banana slicer. I don't think they're too serious, lol.

Doorknobs, huh? Not much goin' on in Vancouver these days?

I hope they're not serious! Vancouver has a lot of time on their hands. They don't have to discuss their mayor's drug use or maffia ties so they have time to think up things like this.

Boogalou, are you getting Vancouver mixed up with Toronto? I know that Rob Ford had admitted to using crack, but I didn't know anything about Vancouver.

      I would have loved to start my jogging journey again but is cloudy and rainy and a little bit snowy. Damn it. Maybe I will start nevertheless. When I start in shitty weather I might continue in good weather.

      Disgusted with Catholic Church over Cardinal Pell's funeral this week. It really reflects poorly on the church and should be a red flag to Catholics.

      I've been away since about 10 PM on Monday evening.  My husband noticed that my speech was a bit slurred, called my daughter to see if she concurred and they both agreed that I needed to go to the hospital.  There I was taken back within minutes to be evaluated for a stroke.   My BP was sky-high. I. undressed and was helped into a hospital gown.  The PureWick did not work that night so when I had to go I just went.  (I do want a PureWick if I ever get urinary stress incontenence though and would need to wear diapers.). 
      I had a CT scan fairly early the next morning and it confirmed that I'd sufffered a mild stroke,  I had an MRI that afternoon which confirmed the both the mild stroke and no other damage and yet I had another CT scan -this time with a contrast medium injected.  I was allowed the Heart Healthy diet and my BP had dropped to 180/100.  They don'y want to drop the BP too rapidly so it has dropped enough to turn to Lisinipril to drop it further.
      After the ER. I was sent to the ICU and stayed until I was discharged this afternoon.  The staff were all really nice and my husband and two daughters were with me most of the time, helping out.  My oldest daughter's van was in the shop so I let her borrow the MINI since I knew she could drive a stick.  When she was visiting yesterday afternoon, her husband was in the ER waiting on a CT can and today, she was there when the speech pathologist was visiting.  She was able to get some good advice from her as her husband is currently unable to swallow.
      Anyway I'm home.  My dogs and the cat to see me home, especially my dachsie, were happy to see me home.
      A couple of things I learned:
      I need to teach my husband about loading the dishwasher.
      and 
      Jill would never be able to handle bedpans.

      I highly recommend Not the Good Girl's Youtube channel. She is making great documentaries about cults.

      Ohh jeeze, GrandBerry6 just came to me, snuggled his face in my neck and barfed, all over me. In my neck, in my hair, on my face, down inside my nightie all over the front of my nightie. Ohh FUCK! Bath, washed hair, cleaned sofa. Good times, good times.
