As I watch these videos, every now and then someone yells "freedom" and it just echoes into the abyss:

Pierre Poilievre has the same judgment as a moth that just can’t stay away from a light bulb.— Dean from Winnipeg (@Dean_Winnipeg) July 1, 2022
And we know how it ends for the moth.
Ottawa Police have tow trucks set up downtown, presumably to quickly remove any cars that don’t follow the no parking/stopping rules that are now in place for many streets in downtown Ottawa #cdnpoli #ottnews pic.twitter.com/rmlA2XewMo— Mackenzie Gray (@Gray_Mackenzie) June 29, 2022
Rest of Canada, THIS is what Ottawans are dealing with. On our National War Memorial. https://t.co/lFZLepoFRH— S.P. O’Sullivan (@sposullivan5) June 30, 2022
Yup. Sure looks like someone was caught assaulting and choking a police officer. Freeze frame at 2 secs of the vid.— Ray Lai | 黎志滔 (@raylai_markham) July 1, 2022
This is very much an indictable offence. #OttawaPolice #Ottawa pic.twitter.com/VoieXo6P5L
Just a bunch of ‘good old boys’, peaceful protestors, law abiding citizens, though.— Scribulatora (@Scribulatora) July 1, 2022

The big test comes tomorrow. There's a rally planned for the front gates of Parliament calling for the arrest and prosecution of Justin Trudeau for treason. Let's hope Topp's followers listen to his advice and stay positive.— Justin Ling (@Justin_Ling) June 30, 2022
Remember the Russians blew up the Snake Island garrison in the early days of the war? Well, Ukraine has now taken Snake Island back:

This is not a political winner, but part of what I like about Biden's approach here is that he's very willing to bear a ton of political consequences in order to stand up for our allies internationally. Goes a long way towards repairing the damage done by Trump. https://t.co/B9yw8hRPFQ— Lakshya Jain (@lxeagle17) July 1, 2022
“What’s the plan? You’re just going to try not to catch covid forever?”— Covid is Airborne in schools (@AugersMonster) June 30, 2022
I cannot get my head around how this has become widely regarded as a worse plan than just catching it repeatedly until it kills you.
Thanks @ZerlinaMaxwell for continuing to bring attention to Covid transmission— as mentioned here, we will be studying how well low-cost ventilation/filtration devices can reduce spread in homes, which will be important for respiratory pathogens more broadly as well. https://t.co/f6Za0RcFuC— Abraar Karan (@AbraarKaran) July 1, 2022
You want planes running on time and luggage to arrive? N95+ masks for all. Shorter wait times for the doctor? You guessed it, n95+ masks for all. Easier to get an appt with hairdresser, plumber, trade, nails, sparky, kids to go to school? I think you might guess what I'll say!— Daniel Chanisheff AZx2 Pfizerx1 (@DC_GSHealth) June 30, 2022
There is a new Canadian research trial looking at patients suffering from post-COVID syndrome — a study that has identified a potential key culprit causing some people to continue experiencing breathing issues months after contracting COVID-19.https://t.co/8rKd12RvhE— Globalnews.ca (@globalnews) June 28, 2022
I hope our era will be remembered as humanity's crazy time (rather than as the beginning of the end):

So I grew up in the middle of nowhere, Ohio. My house was in the center of a bunch of neighboring cornfields.
We didn't get girl scouts, encyclopedia salesfolks, knife sharpening, or proselytizers.

Life,Animated, is a doc about a kid named Owen Suskind who has regressive autism and the one day he stopped speaking.— Danny Deraney (@DannyDeraney) April 13, 2022
He only reacted to Disney films, especially Iago from Aladdin played by Gilbert Gottfried. It was through this he learned to speak again.
Then he met Gilbert… pic.twitter.com/AMj4liTIvT

Living in LA, I’ve lived in many a neighborhood in which police helicopters circle all day and they don’t do anything except be loud an annoying.— Vanessa Guerrero (@nessguerrero) June 30, 2022
You know what improved the morale and safety of my neighborhood in less than two weeks?
