Early morning is a great time to reflect on what’s going on in the world. As the sun rises, so do the people of this great country. I enjoy my morning reflections very much.
Sometimes these reflections include memories. Take, for example, an exquisite picture I have on my wall. It is a picture of several people — myself included smiling for the camera as we enjoy our vacation — in Canada.
Canada is a beautiful country that I’ve had the pleasure of visiting many times. And right now, Canada is having some issues.
You may have heard about the “freedom convoy” of mass protests among Canadian truckers. Not only are they protesting about vaccine mandates, but they are also holding up traffic, which in many areas has been completely shut down—and caused a great deal of problems for all concerned.
Most of us want to see the chaos abate. For example in, Vancouver, Canada, the city has a 95 percent vaccination rate. And although I’m all for the right to protest, I do think said protesters shouldn’t put the safety of others in jeopardy.
Evidently, Mr. Ted Cruz disagrees. The reason I say this is because Cruz is actively urging on the protests — and is embroiled in a war of words with the Mayor of Vancouver. Consider this headline blaring from The Independent: “Canadian mayor shuts down Ted Cruz as he encourages truckers to starve country.”
Rafael is going through some things. The Vancouver mayor is Kennedy Stewart. He and Cruz have been exchanging digs on social media. Need I say Rafael is losing?
Stewart is trying to break up the protests and prevent any harm from coming to anyone. The situation isn’t being helped by a delighted Cruz who appears to be openly urging the protests to continue.
Appearing to salivate over the protests, Cruz has also bizarrely accused Vancouver of having “empty shelves.”
“Vancouver doesn’t want truck drivers there,” Cruz declared dumbly. Stewart wasn’t having any Rafael-infused crap and fired back with this: “Can someone tell @tedcruz our store shelves are fine thanks to the 90% of Canadian truckers who are fully vaccinated?”
What a great comeback — and an accurate one. I, too, have a request. Can someone get Rafael off of Twitter and remind him his title is United States Senator? Can someone also remind him to DO some actual work, perhaps?
