  2. Things fall apart; the centre cannot hold; Mere anarchy is loosed upon the world. The blood-dimmed tide is loosed, and everywhere the ceremony of innocence is drowned; The best lack all conviction, while the worst
    Are full of passionate intensity.

  3. Catholic Latinos are Islam's fastest growing converts, according to this article.   One convert said "“If you grew up in a traditional Hispanic family home, then it’s very similar to Islam,”

    I know you're no scare-eyed honey.
    There'll be a feast if you just come upstairs
    But it's no hanging matter
    It's no capital crime

      It's the Capitol, not as rare, but still a cherished part of my collection. The wife likes country, old country and also has some nice collectors pieces. She has a very nice Sealed, limited and numbered copy of Ladies And Gentlemen, Mr Johnny Cash. Also some stuff that most people have never heard of, like Wilff Carter for instance.

  9. I wonder if a certain American poster would have stinging commentary had TSN or Sportsnet laid off 100+ people, similar to how ESPN just did because the media landscapes are ultimately similar regardless of scale.

      About this time of year some odd years ago when I lived back east, my friend and I would tap some trees, cut a lot of wood, and boil sap into lovely maple syrup. Anybody else ever had the pleasure?

      I'm gonna have some on my waffles tomorrow. It won't be a batch I made myself, but I'm looking forward to reliving the flavor experience, not to mention the health benefits.

      A swig of Scotch whiskey and yo're good to go for the day.

      Yes it always amazed me how she used this ignore function as some sort of bludgeon. I'm not sure I would even know how to activate it because I never have, except within my own mind, which I came to do with her. Oh well apparently she is young and exuberant so maybe she will show up again. I'll probably be on the ignore list though.

      I'm not sure if I'm on ignore. If I'm not I actually feel left out. It's so hurtfull, where's my safe space.

      Me too, I soaked my pillow in tears when I learned I was on ignore.

      Responding to BC's %GDP facts with "but, but, but....Trump!" is the same type of argument I've been witnessing from a particular person that believes in nanothermites and healing concrete.

      Odd....

  19. George W Bush admits in a PEOPLE Magazine article there were bombs and explosions at WTC AFTER the planes hit the twin towers. 

    ==============

    The 43rd president recognizes, however, that his plight was “incomparable” to the firefighters, police officers and other responders who witnessed the tragedy firsthand.

    “I had a job to do,” he says. “They [firefighters,first responders, ...] had a job to do, but I didn’t see the horrific scenes they saw nor did I get concussed by the loud explosions and the bombs that went off around them.”

      But you don't know enough to explain it to your fellow conspirators. Why do you all allow yourselves to be so duped when it is so obvious a fraud?

      "The government alleges that four wide-body airliners crashed on the morning of September 11 2001, resulting in the deaths of more than 3,000 human beings, yet not one piece of hard aircraft evidence has been produced in an attempt to positively identify any of the four aircraft. - George Nelson Colonel USAF (ret.)

       Nelson should have had a chat with his C-130 crew who witnessed the crash. Of course there are many others.

      When a thing is impossible, rational folk are at least willing to look at the facts. You USG official conspiracy theorists are not at all rational.

      The greatest band of war criminals, terrorists and common thugs the world has ever witnessed pointing fingers at others is such stunning hypocrisy.

      You're the one who enthusiastically supports evil the equivalent or worse than the Nazis.

      Stokesay Castle isn't really known for its evil. It was briefly besieged during the Civil War, I think.

      Hot's just upset because he had to delete one of my replies to his status update.  I think he wants me to do the same.  But I won't. 

  21. I don't know the bigger joke...the UN itself or SA defending women's rights.https://www.unwatch.org/no-joke-u-n-elects-saudi-arabia-womens-rights-commission/

      Why, you need only listen to some of our lefties here on the site to discover that nowhere in the world are womens rights more closely guarded and championed in the Muslim world. Women get raped in Canada, you know!! :o

      There are probably more dual US/Canadian citizens registered to vote in both countries.
