Yeah...you're right subby.
Looks like the "I'm still hungry, get me another motherfarking cheeseburger" strike.

Liquids only diet, it says.

Bacon milkshakes count as liquid?

Never have quite understood hunger strikes.

You're going to refuse to eat until such a time that your demands are met? Torturing yourself to death slowly. That will show em.
 
2013-01-24 04:06:55 AM
Can't you guys just ply them with alcohol and let them rot in their drunken stupor? Are you out of blankets?

Your natives are pretty uppity, Canada.

She should stay on that hunger strike a few more weeks.

They're actually a quite effective way of getting the public opinion on your side.

Yeah, much better to kidnap or break into their homes and torture them.

I'm calling shenanigans. Consuming nothing but fish broth and tea since the second week of December and just ending now, she'd look like Ghandi, unless she started out at like 300 pounds.
 
2013-01-24 04:19:42 AM
What did she do? Not go to Tim Horton's for a a few weeks?

There was that Michael Fassbender movie about the hunger strike in some Irish prison.

I have my suspicions about here. Somebody throw some vinegar on her and see if she explodes.

2013-01-24 05:00:26 AM
Wasn't a true hunger strike. Had she added a bunch of lemon juice in her drinks she could have said she was on an extended cleansing.

3 weeks in and she probably was sitting on the porcelain throne more than most of us still.

Yeah. If this sort of thing keeps up the next thing you know there could be a black president!

2013-01-24 06:54:41 AM
I am still trying to figure out if she's for real or not.

That said, aboriginal people in Canada have legitimate reasons to feel betrayed by the gov't. And things are only going to heat up more when lawsuits by non-status Indians and Metis start hitting the courts.

The result will be a fair number of non aboriginal Canadians getting pissed off by what they perceive as a select segment of the population getting a free ride, without recognizing that Canada, which is a perpetual person, made a deal and that the deal is permanent -- there is no sunset clause.

Breaking the treaties would result in the aboriginal people being treated as conquered and Canada being a conqueror. Which does not fit into the Canadian psyche.
 
2013-01-24 06:55:58 AM
Her hunger strike actually worked. It began a movement which brought First Nations' concerns back to the front burner. I usually can't stand extremists, but in this case I supported her. Our government is the most arrogant, heartless, and power hungry we've ever had. I loved seeing them get egg on their face.

Is that a jab at the noble American Indian cultural history?

Maybe her hunger strike went from after lunch to right before dinner.
 
2013-01-24 07:24:54 AM
Rita McNeil was going to join her in sympathy, but her doctor warned her she could be endangering her life if the strike continued past 2014.

Which was a stupid move, they should have just turned right every time they came to a junction and they would have got out in the end.

Wut?


Not that impressed with having a half black President. It is not as if he came form an impoverished upbringing. Now both Johnson and Fillmore were slaves or indentured servants if you will. Those are more impressive achievements.

Maybe she dined on the 80 million dollars worth of missing receipts....

long story only found on CBC.

Ghandi was a real Indian, not a wannabe like these New World types.

This was a bizarre one too. She was doing a hunger strike and refusing to talk to the politicians for weeks.
Spence is a bit of a hipocrit and oblivious to how she comes off. Going to vegas to discuss poverty and starvation while covered in jewelery and 300+lbs was a good example.
 
2013-01-24 08:03:26 AM
Spence, who had been subsisting on fish broth and medicinal tea since Dec. 11, had been examining ways to return to her home and nurse herself back to health.

Stubby, I've fasted for slightly more than four weeks, IV liquids only, in early 2001. It's not quite as big a deal people assume it is.

Dramatic lack of weight loss aside, I'd really like to know where the $90 million that the government gave her went while her people were freezing to death in tents made out of plastic bags!!
 
2013-01-24 08:59:09 AM
This "hunger strike" was just a publicity stunt by a desperate attention whore who is trying to divert public attention away from the fact that she and her cronies have been embezzling government funds for years. I wish the PM had ignored her and let her starve. It's exactly what this moron deserves.
 
2013-01-24 09:05:01 AM
Most of us are getting a wee bit tired of the moaning by the natives. Spence started her strike as a ploy to deflect an ongoing scandal in her own town. She and her counsellors squandered millions of taxpayer dollars on unessential and non-traceable spending. She lived comfortably while most of her people lived in shacks.
There is no difference between between one group of humans and another. If you have the means of getting fat  and receiving money, you will not share it with others in your same group.
Greed and a "me first" attitude crosses all ethnic and socio-economic bounds, whether your a Canadian bank executive or a Chief of an Indian band.
Most Canadians have sympathy for the native Canadians situation, but after giving them land, support and billions of unearned money, most of their complaints fall on deaf ears.
