  2. Mulcair has the math about right.  We have no right to expect Trudeau to fulfill more than 40% of his promises when he got only 40% of the popular vote

  3. Trump promises 'new' law that already exists.  No doubt his supporters will claim he meant something else and the media is unfair. #ignorant #president #partisan #stupidity

      While at the rally, Trump also renewed calls for a wall between Mexico and the U.S., saying that he wants the wall to include solar panels, NBC News reported.

      “This way, Mexico will have to pay much less money,” Trump explained to the crowd.

       

      He's getting more and more bizarre.

      Do you want bizarre? Look-up John Podesta's art. You could be stuck with that.

  6. Aboriginal leader said yesterday, in celebration of the National Aboriginal day, "eat some Indian tacos...."

     

    Tacos? 

    Wouldn't that be considered a cultural appropriation? :rolleyes:

    They're so sensitive about anyone appropriating their culture....and yet, they think nothing of appropriating others'!

      That's wonderful. Go figure that Australians have a different culture than the UK.

      Spain is in Europe: Spaniards are Caucasian. No amount of wiggling on your part is going to change that. They came over in big azz galleons and looted the New World in order to pay for their wars back home. Any native that got in the way was given the chop. You seem to be under the impression they all went home rather than colonizing what they conquered.

  7. Pro tip kids: if you smell like pot & you tell a police officer you're carrying a gun, keep your hands on the steering wheel and don't immediately reach for anything including your wallet.

      I really feel for cops who don't know if they are going to be shot.  It must be very difficult.

      "Officer, I have a conceal carry permit and a weapon in the car, what would you like me to do".  That's all that was needed.  I feel for the guy, but when you say "i have a gun" and then proceed to start rummaging around....well?

      I don't relish the tasks that the police have to face from time to time in their work. Especially dealing with drunks pouring out of bars at closing time and having them puke in the back of their patrol cars. But that cop in Wisconsin is a murderer as far as I'm concerned, I'd maybe let him off with manslaughter. But acquittal? Bullshit! How often are US cops going to get away with such unnecessary violence?

  8. I'll take the suspension if you tell me where the off topic garbage is.  I understand you have no sense of humour, but if you thought I was serious you should at least have checked.  "Sandbox"?  Rubbish!

    Note for member

    Stop posting off-topic garbage in the forum.  THIS IS NOT YOUR SANDBOX.  

    The next warning comes with a long suspension.  

    If you need me to show you where your behavior is off-topic garbage, it will come with a short suspension.  

    Choose your poison.

      They don't want to identify the religion of the culprit.

      DogOnPorch

      Of course not...and if pushed, "experts" can be hauled onto the media to say "God is the same in Judaism, Christianity and Islam"...even though the last one is a REAL stretch...just so you Christians get to share the blame for Islam's violence. It's part of the game the media plays. 

      A good example of this backfiring is yesterday's #MoreThanARefugee video...

      You might enjoy the Black Pigeon's commentary on said video...

      Right...so her request was not necessarily "racist", just timed poorly !

      The "white doctors" were probably still on the golf course.

    3. Boges

      I think caring the race of your doctor, to the point of a public tantrum, is inherently racist. Mine is actually Muslim. 

    4. bush_cheney2004

      bush_cheney2004

      And caring about your doctor's gender is sexist...so what ?

      Jewish doctors were very popular in my "coloured" 'hood.

      Tantrums by "progressives" are OK ?

      Yeah, it's getting silly.  Then you have the media's biased reporting, they're not even trying to hide it anymore!

  13. Commuters get lucky in Belgium.  Either he got his kilos confused with his ounces or only his detonator went off.  At least they shot him.  Hopefully, he's alive, and it hurts.

      The fact is Omni, I've notices that whether I flip the fries or not, they come out the same when they're done. What's with these bogus instructions?

    3. Omni

      Yeah they cook whether they are laying on their backs or their bellies. I like the uniform color and crispiness. Then I call them potates frittes

      You have to ask, capricorn. Omni only does bogus. Bogus science,

  16. The highest-paid constable in the London Metropolitan Police Service earns the equivalent of $67,757 per year. In Vancouver, meanwhile, a comparable $64,513 is what a recruit earns in their first year.  Base pay for 1st class constable in Ottawa will rise to $100k next year.

    1. WestCoastRunner

      WestCoastRunner

      But I thought Ottawa had the worst of the worst on their most wanted list. Wouldnt that pay grade account for 'danger pay'?  

    2. overthere

      overthere

      Every cop in Canada will applaud Ottawa getting to $100K.  WhY? because they like every civil service union in the country always point to their own contract vs 'average salaries' as the basis for increments.

       

      They'll do anything to avoid any actual analysis of the value of their work.  'They get more money. therefore I must be underpaid'.

      We could at least make do dual duty, as emergency paramedics. Some US jurisdictions do that. They're often first on scene anyway. We could also insist they all get black belts. Police in Japan do that. Maybe they could avoid shooting some people then.

      The question you should be asking, Goddess, is,

      Why will no one, all adults supposedly, not discuss nanothermite on this forum?

      Human history clearly shows they are immigrants. Refreshing David pointed it out.

      it’s ironic that this attack was made on the Finsbury Park mosque known for radicalism (but cleaned up now) where the hate preacher Abu Hamza ranted against the for 10 years but the authorities did absolute zilch about him.

      Ah what. They threw him in jail over 10 years ago.
