Canada has been experiencing a number of wildfires. And the air quality here in Wisconsin backs that up. Tonight's Feel Good Story of The Day.

100 Brazilian firefighters deployed to Prince George fire centre


For the first time ever, a team from Brazil has joined the B.C. wildfire fight.

"We are incredibly grateful to each and every one of them," said Bowinn Ma, B.C.'s Minister of Emergency Management and Climate Readiness.

Speaking to media from the Abbotsford Airport with the firefighters in the background, Ma said the Brazilians will join 600 out-of-province firefighters including some from Mexico and the U.S.

"We're feeling very confident about the number of resources that we have and are being deployed,” she said.


Not happy enough for you? How about this story of great gun control.


Home Invader Shot by BOTH Homeowners When They Returned Fire During Burglary Attempt

McDonald County, Missouri is in the extreme southwest part of the state, hard on the borders of Oklahoma and Arkansas. It’s an Ozark county populated by people who declared their independence from the state in 1961. In short, they’re not people you want to mess with.

If only a would-be burglar knew a little more about McDonald County before he let himself into a local home last week.

Two homeowners came home at about 9:30pm to find 62-year-old James Garrett skulking around their Tiff City house. Both were armed when the intruder took a shot at them. They then returned fire and both hit their target.

'Man Ruptures Lung While Screaming at Concert of Favorite Idol Group'. There has to be an Yoko or Tanya joke here somewhere.

A 19-year-old man in China reportedly ended up with a hole in his lung while screaming his heart out at a concert of his favorite idol group.

A young man from Shenzhen, China, recently suffered a pneumothorax, also known as a ‘collapsed lung’, while screaming loudly during a concert of his favorite idol group. Chinese media reported that the 19-year-old was enthusiastically screaming during the band’s performance when he suddenly felt a sharp pain in his chest. he started experiencing difficulty breathing almost immediately and ended up passing out. The unnamed youth was taken to the emergency room of a Shenzen hospital where doctors concluded that he had suffered an alveolar rupture in one of his lungs due to screaming with excessive force during the concert.

An interesting story finding its way into The ONT. Many Vital Drugs Are Now Impossible to Find. Here's Why.

The American Society of Health System Pharmacists now lists over 300 active shortages, primarily of decades-old generic drugs no longer protected by patents.

While this is not a new problem, the number of drugs in short supply has increased in recent years, and the average shortage is lasting longer, with more than 15 critical drug products in short supply for over a decade.

Current shortages include widely known drugs such as the antibiotic amoxicillin; the heart medicine digoxin; the anesthetic lidocaine; and the medicine albuterol, which is critical for treating asthma and other diseases affecting the lungs and airways.

I've looked at the various jobs over my life. I've looked at the Fabulous's jobs over her 29 years and I've come to the conclusion. There are no perfect jobs out there. And each job has its ups and downs. Our Snowflake Population is not prepared for the real world.

Researchers horrified, decry rise of 'fascism' as students send mocking responses to woke survey
'Malicious responses' to the survey included identifying as 'illiterate' and as an 'attack helicopter'


The research team declared that the mockery they received "had a profound impact on morale and mental health," particularly for one transgender researcher who was "already in therapy for anxiety and depression regarding online anti-trans rhetoric." The paper claimed that "managing the study’s data collection caused significant personal distress, and time had to be taken off the project to heal from traumatic harm" of having to read students' responses in the survey.

Traumatic harm? Oh FFS.

Oh I'm so glad that Karen Like Senator Dick Durbin has fought off the Kung Flu again. Oh sorry, I got that wrong.

Vaxxed & 2X Boosted Sen. Durbin is COVID Positive For 3rd Time in a Year.

Democratic U.S. Senate Majority Whip Dick Durbin – one of the most vociferous advocates of the COVID-19 vaccine and subsequent booster shots – has tested positive for coronavirus for the third time in a year and is self-isolating once again. Durbin, who tested positive at the end of July last year and once again in March this year, announced on his Twitter account Monday morning, “[u]nfortunately, I tested positive for COVID-19 today… Consistent with CDC guidelines, I’ll quarantine at home and follow the advice of my doctor while I work remotely.”

This looks like a top quality White Nationalism Right Wing recruiting paper. Oh just kidding, it's practical medical common sense.

Transgender Interventions Harm Children
No Evidence that Transgender Interventions are Safe for Children
There is not a single long-term study to demonstrate the safety or efficacy of puberty blockers, cross-sex hormones and surgeries for transgender-believing youth. This means that youth transition is experimental, and therefore, parents cannot provide informed consent, nor can minors provide assent for these interventions. Moreover, the best long-term evidence we have among adults shows that medical intervention fails to reduce suicide.

The Quotes of The Day


Quote I

“I’ve said if nobody wants the, you know, candidate A or candidate B, maybe there will be a candidate C. But it’s — right now, I’m focused on getting the Republican Party on track and trying to nominate a good Republican that can do a better job and that can potentially win a race in November." Former MD Gov. Larry Hogan (R)


You sir are not a hero.

Quote II

“In a late-night letter sent to me last Thursday, your lawyers at the Department of Justice threatened to sue the State of Texas over the floating marine barriers we have deployed in the Rio Grande River in Eagle Pass. Texas will see you in court, Mr. President,” Gov. Greg Abbot (R-TX)


Quote III

“The U.S. economy is more tip-reliant than it’s ever been. But there’s a growing sense that these requests are getting out of control and that corporate America is dumping the responsibility for employee pay onto the customer.” Scheherezade Rehman, an economist and professor of international finance at George Washington University.
