      I love it when all the rednecks get together. It's so funny, sort of.

      That's, of course, Robert Duvall. Martin Sheen played Lee in Gettysburg. No CGI in either of those two.  

      Duvall has done some interesting historical flicks for both HBO and TBS. His portrayal of Stalin is pretty awesome.

      I just applied to see if I qualified. British efficiency! Ten days later it came by courier! My father moved to Canada back when he was a baby - which was back when Canadians were British citizens. So when the citizenship law was passed in 1947 and all British citizens in Canada were declared Canadian citizens, he became one too. But apparently he never lost his British citizenship.

  5. Quirks of the US Prison System

    As was pointed out in a recent interview with a released inmate, if you are convicted of a crime in the US, sentenced and serve your 20 years behind bars, there are numerous funded programs to reintegrate you into society. If you are wrongly convicted and finally are exonerated after 20 years, they simply open the door and kick you out. Doesn't seem quite right.   

  6. "What he didn't say was how US is going to win!"  :lol:

    This came from a panel guest at CTV - on Trump's speech about Afghanistan.

      Well see, it's okay for Obama to not "win" in afghanistan.  Eight long years, who cares about a win, but either Trump must satisfy the talking head idiots, or he's a failure.  Meanwhile, back in reality, Afghanistan is a target rich environment of terrorists.  Might as well kill them there rather than Obama's policy of letting them into the US and then being surprised when attacks occur.

      Speaking of talking head idiots. Trump blathers on about stopping all immigration from Muslim countries until "we can figure out what the hell is going on here", and then then goes to see the Saudi's, (you know those people who flew the planes on 9-11) and sells them billions worth of war weapons. Anyone who supports the latter is in all likelihood the former.

      Afghanistan and Pakistan aren't on the list of countries banned from immigration. Go figure.

  7. Is it me, or does the Anti-Fascist group ANTIFA come off as pretty Fascist? 

    1. scribblet

      Extremely fascist, terrorize and intimidate anyone who doesn't agree with them.

      Antifa, KKK, and Nazis all believe in big government and control by the state.. They are anti-capitalism. Theses loser dummies on supposed different sides don't realize they are the same. They are the complete opposite of conservatives.

  8. Ohhh look at that, in the unsuccessful coup attempt night our lovely "ally" US calls several times the high ranked persons who involved in the unsuccessful coup attempt :rolleyes: what a perfect "ally" we have ^_^ awww

  13. ANTIFA smashes the camera of that well known Nazi broadcasting group, Global News.

      Perhaps this will help-

      "A petition put up just days ago urging the Trump administration to label the left-wing Antifa a “terror group” has attracted well over the 100,000 signatures needed to merit a formal White House response."

      Link

      Big turnout for this one. Anyone with half a brain can recognize these masked villains for what they are, but not some folk around here apparently.

  14. Remember, avoid personal attacks.  :D 

    My posts about that get deleted, but the personal attack posts are allowed to stay.

      That's how it's done nowadays.  If something is deemed personally offensive, it must be eradicated from historical record without delay.  Orwell was a prophet...

  15. US Navy should ban cell phones on the bridge of its warships, and maybe install collision avoidance software and automatic braking.

      While they're at it they can also install airbags and back up beepers.

  16. After the one drop in my city, another US unmanned military air vehicle crashed in an empty land next to my city :lol: and these vehicles are full of weapons. Our lovely "ally" wandering on top of us with mass destruction weapons and crashing  around randomly :rolleyes:

  17. The FASCIST so-called "anti-fascists" :rolleyes:  tried to prevent La Meute protesters from exercising their right to protest and express!  When they failed to do so (La Meute group was holed up under the City Hall Garage), the fascists so-called "anti-fascists" resorted to vandalism, and violence towards the police and reporters!

    I haven't seen mainstream newspapers carry this news....maybe I missed them?

    "Hundreds of members of a far-right group marched to protest illegal immigration in Quebec City on Sunday, but were delayed by several hours by far-left protesters who tried to shut them down by force. The far-right demonstration was organized by La … . A Quebec City protest organized by antifascist advocates has been declared illegal. Police told protesters to disperse or face arrest after some threw bottles and shot fireworks at police. The protest was organized to counter a demonstration held by La … "

  18. Quebec has tried so hard to keep their french culture and not allow english people, now those same people can't throw it away fast enough on immigration.   Bravo! 

  19. Since the alt-right protesters weren't on the street, I feel obliged to condemn antifa for their behavior in Quebec.

      I never heard the guilt by association argument when Obama was palling around with Ayers and Hillary idolizing KKK member Byrd, must be a new trend.

      Guilt by association? Trudeau plus Castro plus Xi Jin ping association, cause he thinks those murdering expletives are better than fine.

      .....and this is hardly mentioned by mainstream media.

  21. No idea why I find it so funny that the "alt left" gets mad at the "alt right" for not wanting to bring "alt right" people to Canada.  Isn't that somewhat like dividing by zero?

    Correct me if I'm wrong:

    Left - socially left, fiscally right (Paul Martin)

    Alt Left - socially left, fiscally left (Justin Trudeau)

    Right - socially left, fiscally right (Brian Jean)

    Alt Right - socially right, fiscally right (Ralph Klein)

    Hydraboss Right - socially-couldn't-give-a-rats-ass, fiscally hard right (Me)

     

    Soooo.....mathematically we could say:

    Left = Right (so Paul Martin is the same as Brian Jean)

    Alt Left /= Alt Right (Justin Trudeau is no Ralph Klein)

    Hydraboss Right = Perfect (no one is like me :) )

    1. Hydraboss

      Hydraboss

      Further oddness......how come there's no one that's Socially Right, Fiscally Left?  We're they voted off the island?

    2. dialamah

      dialamah

      Me:  Socially left definitely;  fiscally - they're all the same really, regardless of what they promise or their supposed expertise or theories on what will lead to fiscal success.   My standard of living changes not a whit under Conservative or Liberal governments.   The "lower taxes" that Conservatives promise amount to pennies on my paycheque; the higher taxes promised by Conservatives under Liberals never seem to amount to anything, and the 'tax credits' given out by Conservatives and Liberals rarely apply to me.

  25. And now, some right-winger has whined to the mods and a bunch of posts have been removed from the "Left invites terror into our homes" topic. .  So much for free speech, eh?   I guess the only option is let these right-wingers spread their hate in peace.
