  1. Today
  2. I always figured ignorance of the law was no excuse.  I was wrong.  I suppose this is the kind of thing we are trying to avoid when we discuss immigration assimilation.

      Yes, Canada outlawed marital rape in the 80s.  Perhaps the Judge was having a throwback moment.   It takes men time to figure this stuff out though.  About five years ago, on a dating site discussion group, there were still Canadian and American men who thought a law against marital rape was stupid.  A woman consented to sex when she married, therefore rape was impossible.

      I should make it clear, it was the judge who roused my ire.  I threw the immigration comment in because I thought it seemed fairly reasonable.  And because it would probably have upset the judge.

  3. The level of intellectual cowardliness behavior on this website is stunning in its volume and level of delusion. 

    A Scottish engineer writes; Yet here we are, more than seven years later, and not one single person has shown one single piece of physical or visual evidence that supports this latter claim.

    The "latter claim" to which he refers is the USGOCT, which amazingly, has no evidence at all to support it and volumes of evidence proving it is one huge lie. 

    Goebbels was sure right when he said, "If you tell a lie big enough and keep repeating it, people will eventually come to believe it".

      It doesn't have to be big, or even repeated that often, if it's what people want to believe anyway.

      And you don't find it the least bit discomforting that people want to believe these monstrous lies, sapper? Millions have died because of them, hundreds of millions have had their lives destroyed. Are you comfortable with having whatever hand you have played in this?

      Yeah, pretty much.  Same as you, I guess.

    Austria Becomes Latest Country In Europe To Ban Full-Face Veil

    "Starting in October, police will be charging fines from people who wear clothes that obstruct their facial features," Deutsche Welle reports. "The 150-euro ($166) fine would also apply to women wearing burqas and niqabs at universities, courts, or in public transport."

    France, Belgium, the Netherlands and Bulgaria have already banned or partially banned wearing a burqa or niqab. Germany and Norway are also working on bans.

    In March, the EU's highest court ruled that a Muslim woman who was fired in Belgium over wanting to wear an Islamic headscarf at her job did not suffer from direct discrimination, because her employer had a general rule against religious or political displays.

      Quebec hasn't banned it though, have they?  I thought it was just for public servants and those receiving public service?

  6. PM Trudeau had stated that, "it's not up to federal government to challenge Quebec niqab ban, however, he believes the Charter of Rights and Freedoms applies to everyone and that he will defend that principle."

    What's he on about?
    Can you wear a stocking or a hockey mask in a bank? Can you wear a bikini in a justice court?
    Can you wear just a speedo in school?

      Was it a Black family I wonder? At any rate I imagine even Trump has enough sense to know he needs to at least try to show remorse in a call to a fallen soldiers family, he's just not very adept at articulation. If he chose the wrong words and it became public, he should have just consulted one of his speech writers and called back to correct the issue instead of going all political, which sadly may have the effect of dragging out the healing process for the family.

      It's a Mazda CX5-GT. I wanted all the new bells and whistles, including a heads up display, adaptive cruise control, cross traffic alert/braking, crash mitigation/braking, lanekeeping assist, blind spot warning, etc. The Bose music system is nice, too. Car salesmen  haven't changed in the last five years. They'll still smile like heck as they try to screw you any way they can.

  10. "Trudeau said while everyone knew Downie's death was coming, they hoped it was not.

    "It hurts," he said, his eyes red as tears streamed down his face.

    Trudeau ordered the flags on the Peace Tower on Parliament Hill and at all federal government buildings in Downie's hometown of Kingston, Ont. to be lowered to half-mast until sunset on the day of the funeral or memorial service."

      Kimmel and now Trudeau criticized by Conservatives for showing grief. 

      They're called, "crocodile tears."

      I bet Trudeau was hoping Downie's death would distract from Morneau's scandal.  Milk Downie's passing....turn on the taps!  In front of media!

       

       

      Boy....wait til the funeral.  I cringe he might throw himself on the coffin.

       

      The "elite" are supposed to have class when it comes to grieving.  They try not to make a spectacle of themselves.  Thus you don't see royalties  - nor people like Jackie O - sobbing in public.

      What does Morneau have to do with Trump? Oh...that's right...nothing at all. What you just engaged in is called deflection and as such is the weakest form of rebuttal. In fact it's so weak as to be ludicrous and inane. Well done, try again.

      Morneau says he's taking it a step farther.  He's putting his wealth in a blind trust and selling his shares from Morneau-Sheppel.

       

      He'll do that even if it's not required.  Now, he making himself look the hero! :lol:

      Thus wasn't about Trump, but I notice you don't mention lowest unemployment in 16 years and the DOW over 23000 for the first time.

      Off topic, but wtf, right?

  12. the Liberal Government has walked back some of their tax proposals to ease concerns of family farms and small carnivorous forest-dwelling animals.

    a self-proclaimed feminist could never be caught using such knuckle-dragging, archaic  terms that the rest of the english speaking planet does.

  13. 2 years of Sunny Ways. Only 2 years left, hopefully. These arrogant hypocrites are bad for Canada.

      Angus is right. PET was intelligent. Maybe the fact Gord Downie died on PET's birthday (Oct. 18) made Trudeau doubly emotional hence his over the top reaction.

      Really?  The flag is at half mast?  Did they fly the flag at half mast for Leonard Cohen or Gordie Howe?   Knowlton Nash?  Can Captain Kirk expect a fly past as well?  Is this a regular Canadian thing?

      Then, he changes his tune in a subsequent interview.

      Quote

      Over the course of five years, now with young children, the family was moved between 23 different locations, sometimes stopping only for days. All of the places were within 50 kilometres of the Afghanistan-Pakistan border, and they spent time in both countries.

      Often, they were transferred in the trunk of a car and frequently drugged with the anesthetic ketamine. They were held in kuchi huts, abandoned homes, one-room underground dungeons or homes purpose-built for Haqqani guards.

      In the Daily Mail piece Mrs. Boyle is still wearing a hijab in the hospital bed.   Wonder if she had another miscarriage.  We may never know, but personally I believe he turned Muslim going into Afghanistan to hook up with the Taliban or similar group but things took a different turn.

      The whole thing is very bizarre. It's almost like daddy Justin is trying to shield little boy Morneau from the big bad reporters. In the process of doing so he merely makes them look guilty as hell and desperate. Not to mention laughably arrogant.
