      Yeah, NAFTA doesn't seem to be going too well. Hopefully it'll be better than the mess he made of the TPP.

  5. Do Trump supporters not find it a little weird that the top guys in his campaign were all involved in Russian money laundering?

      Well Betsy, one thing democracy means to me is to be able to cast a ballot and be confident that it will carry the same weight as every other ballot. What's your version I wonder?

      My ballot in the 2011 general election counted for 1/10 that of someone in PEI, because their riding got one vote in Parliament and my riding got one vote in Parliament and my riding represented 10 times the number of people.

      Yeah but I'd rather let those islanders have some sway than the Ruskies.

  6. Stephen Harper once got grief for going to a Hockey game on the Government's dime. JT just flew a Canadian Indian Chef to India on the government's dime.

      I suspect the 1.2 mil to load two Cadiallacs in a C-17 and fly them across the pond to drive Harper around was more less to do with security as much as show. I don't really like sausages truth to tell. Hope they were good.

      You guys do realize that the more hysterical you get with the "what abouts", the worse JT looks, right?

      A little balance perhaps. But also for the entertainment value as things slip downhill.

  8. I recall...exactly...the weapon pulled on me during the hold-up. Aimed right at my face...hard not to. It was a silver .45 Colt 1911 with a black grip. Stolen from a collector, obviously. Nice gun. No...you can't tell if it is loaded like with a revolver. But the hammer was back...

      Well I had 10 of those so called holidays at the embassy, then it was off to Baidoa, then down to Kismayu, but most time was at the airport in Mog. A bunch of did go to the old port at the invite of the Gypos at New Years. Somed of the locals help usher in the new year with a few mortar rounds while we drove back to the airport. Fun times!

      I was with the RCD at the airport, our compound was right across the road from the Kiwi's, great bunch of guys, RCD and Kiwi's. we were right at the edge of the taxi pad. Do you remember the main gate and road that led up to it? One day we were going out on patrol and passed a bunch of Americans, I don't remember if they were Marines or Rangers now. They had four or five Somali's face down on the ground under guard. They also had five 110mm artillery shells laid in a row. I remember we were wondering what the hell was going on. We were thinking it would be stupid to move an artillery piece up that close to the camp. It was only years later that I realised what they were doing. Fashioning an IED before IED's became common knowledge in the rest of the world. Good that the Americans got them, a bomb that size would be devastating.

      We were based up at the north end of the rwy on the east side. We hung around with the Aussies quite a bit who were a little closer to the beach, and they ran the ATC there.

      Progressives feel if they condemn something then all Canadians do to - because to them, they're the only people who qualify as "Canadians". This wasn't even a case where a minimum ought to apply. If she had been white she'd have likely gotten six years or more.

      Sure they mean it....until they don't. Your fingerprint section record (FPS) is forever, and accessible by Canadian and foreign law enforcement/border services.

  18. Trudeau to injured Canadian veterans - We cannot give you more.

    A former soldier who lost a leg in Afghanistan was critical of Ottawa’s plan to reform some veteran’s programs, including changes to disability pensions. “I was prepared to be killed in action,” said Brock Blaszczyk, a former corporal who lost his left leg to a roadside bomb in Afghanistan. “What I wasn’t prepared for, Mr. Prime Minister, is Canada turning its back on me.”

    To shouts and boos from the crowd, Trudeau defended his government’s changes to veteran pensions. “Why are we still fighting against veteran’s groups in court? Because they are asking for more than we are able to give right now,” Trudeau said.

    Trudeau entered the hall in Edmonton’s MacEwan University to mixed chorus of applause and boos. His answers were interrupted periodically through the night by angry shouts.

    I don't see you doing a lot!

      We cannot give you more.......because we've got them earmarked for rewards or compensations to Islamist terrorists!  The returning ones - who joined the fight killing your fellow-soldiers, and who probably had a hand in maiming you  - will have to be helped back into society, too.

       

      Same with victims of Residential Schools.  Be grateful you're getting anything at all.  Too bad you suffered injustice at the actual hand of the government (the government actually ripped your families apart, and was complacent in the abuse that befell you)  - but you're not Islamists. So, there!

      You so funny Impact. The problem with your statement is the fact that Trudeau is clearly as thick as two short planks whereas no sane person ever accused Harper of not being intelligent. Admit it, you fell head over heels for the obviously intellectually challenged empty suit.

      So true scribblet. Now not only is the world laughing at Trudeau once more, but the Indians are non too pleased with him, and that's putting it mildly. What's with this guy, he just can't stay away from terrorists and their ilk. Not only does he import Indian chefs to India, he also brings along Indian terrorists.

  24. You can read the entire, very interesting  Mueller report here-

    Link

    Highlights:
    - Russian agents funded political protests on both sides, with the intent to increase division in society.
    - The goal was to spread distrust towards the candidates and the political system in general.
    - The project had multiple components, some targeting foreign audiences in various countries.
    - Conspirators also created thematic group pages on social media sites, including the Black Lives Matter movement (with group names including "Blacktivist"), "United Muslims of America" and "Army of Jesus")' and certain geographic regions within the United States (with group names including "South United" and "Heart of Texas"). By 2016, the size of many organization-controlled groups had grown to hundreds of thousands of online followers. The goal was to create distrust of the police and government authorities, and to divide the country.

      LonJowett,  Unlike the reckless  Trudeau (who jumped right away believing the Muslim girl-hijab-scissor incident, and the latest Stanley-Boushie controversy), Trump was being diplomatic as the nation's leader. 

       

      He can't jump to conclusions without any evidence..... after all, there are pro-Clinton and anti-Trump  in the establishment that want to get rid of him at whatever cost.  Claiming he is pro-Russia is one of them. 

      Ask yourself:  why was Trump defending Russia even when he's being accused of colluding with Putin?  You'd think he'll distance himself real fast!  Because there was no evidence at the time!!!
