    America under President Trump

    Go ahead. Review from where we started on this - page 387.
  3. Never mind about Mulroney and the GST. Ontario is in the red - with this huge deficit we've got, thanks to Wynne. If Horwath wins, she' ll be adding another huge one on top of that! And of course, if Wynne hadn't scared off businesses - Horwath, being a socialist, will terrify the daylights out of them! We'd really be doomed. You may have your own way at saving cost - unfortunately, so many Ontarians don't have that option. So many are living from paycheck to paycheck as it is! That's why majority of Canadians from all parties, prefer spending cuts to start reducing our deficit. Liberals are busy squandering money elsewhere - like that stupid open invitation Trudeau had issued to the world - - instead of doing something to prepare for the changing climate! If they are squandering money - they can't be serious about climate change. Talk is cheap. They're simply parroting what will get them votes! If they aren't so serious about what they say is a crucial climate change period - then why should we believe them? Do they act like they're even worried about it? Nah.
  4. If only Western Canada could stay cut off from the east forever Western Canada would be one of the most wealthiest countries in the world. The West does not need a stinking East to survive. The east has dumped so many liberal/communist/multicultural programs and agendas on the West that the West is pretty much poor and broke from it all. The West will never see it's true potential because of the east which will always try to be a pain in the ass to the West and continue to be allowed to steal it's money also. The West is screwed unless they decide enough already and get the hell out of this bloody link to the east. What more can be said.

    1) Because it means he did even worse than he thought: he got a boost and still ended up on the bottom of the pile. 2) What would 'dark people' do in terms of behaviour to make them poorer ? And why would they do that do you think ? 3) That's a simplification and it doesn't make any sense.
  6. I don't think that the Israeli lovers here would like to have someone walk in and take over their home and land and force the owners of that home to live in the garage? How nice of those Israelis to do that. That pretty much says it all as to why the Palestinians are a little bit peeved off these days. The Palestinians truly are surrounded by a trigger happy military and a criminal government.

    Actually, you are misquoting the author. He says "This is not to say that Muslims who ask for freedom in the West must be held accountable for the lack of freedom in “Islamic” states. " The irony is now that his point applies to your argument also. There's a dichotomy present in using liberalism to justify accepting illiberal views, as the NYT column points out, but your dichotomy is that you demand a melting-pot model in which nothing melts, but instead cultures are excluded in the name of pluralism.
  8. No doubt...leaving far less money available for infrastructure projects. Gas plants, wind turbines, bridges, hydro plants...no shortage of fiascos in Wynne's Liberal controlled Ontario. In January 2016, there was a bearing/expansion joint failure on the new Nipigon River Bridge in Ontario, effectively cutting off eastern and western Canada land transport. I couldn't believe what I was reading in the news....a single point of failure for a entire provincial/national highway system ? Taking out this bridge cuts Canada in half. Then came the funniest part....the recommended detour was...wait for it...go through the United States ! "There's a hole in Daddy's arm...where all the money goes." - John Prine

    It's okay to be white. I don't bite.
  10. Today
  11. What Horvath will be doing if she becomes the premier of Ontario will be to fork out hundreds of millions of Ontario taxpayer's tax dollars on tens of thousands of criminal illegals. Fyi, 7600 illegals have already entered Canada illegally since January from America. It sure looks like Trump is cleaning out the illegal aliens house alright and being able to dump all of his stuff into Canada. Lucky us, eh?
  12. So, what the hell has the Trudeau/liberals done for Canada as of yet since they took power years ago except maybe to flood Canada with plenty of legal/illegal refugees. At least some conservatives have an idea as to what to do about this problem. Canada is well on it's way to becoming a dysfunctional third world hell hole with the liberals/ndp pretty much running Canada now.

    Isn't it obvious from the 'manifestos' that they don't consider women as having their own minds? Just a means to an end!

    I credit my father's bad example as a belligerent, controlling patriarch, and my mother's good example of standing up and refusing to be cowed by him, as the reason why I grew up with a strong belief in women's rights and have tried to practice equality in my home. After 30 years of official marriage, I still want my wife to be with me because she wants to be with me/not because of obligation or that I need a female to exploit!

    NO, except for psychopaths or sociopaths, the past 200,000 or more years of modern human history has been small bands of hunter-gatherers more recently transitioning to small agricultural settlements and all of these people, no matter where in the world you were talking about, did not think of themselves as "individuals!' Instead, if you ask people in pre-industrial societies, they see themselves in relation to where they fit within their extended families and local communities. In that sense, industrial civilization and the oversized cities it has created were the first step along the way of creating a sociopathic culture...which celebrates individualism over community responsibility! As I see the race drama today, sowing and exacerbating racial divides is a strategy used by the major oppressors who are very, very small in number. Let's just say that ...at least according to last year's T-4's, my gross income of $85,000 doesn't provide me much opportunity to oppress or exploit others...especially considering that full time wage earners in my income bracket are the ones who get stuck paying the highest amount in REAL taxes...since business owners..especially rich business owners have so many escape hatches to hide and squirrel away their money!

    Marx created a particular brand of socialism...and also created his own version of history, since he was as much a product of enlightenment thinking as David Ricardo, Adam Smith, John Stuart Mill and the other early developers of economic theory. Like the capitalist market theorists, Marx had no respect for nature...viewing the natural world as just mere collections of raw materials to be utilized for human development. Marx was also a believer in technology, whereas the earlier socialist movements created by men of action/rather than educated thought(Fabians, Chartists, Luddites etc.) rightly viewed the new technologies as primarily tools of the owners of capital to use to enslave them to work long hours in factory sweatshops. Considering that the majority of the followers of Nathan Ludd and those who were able to read his tracts were tradesmen(and tradeswomen) who had or were in the process of developing skills that gave them bargaining power to determine where they live, what they would earn and how many hours they would work, they were out of step with the capitalists, the landowning aristocrats who wanted all the people on the commons to be cleared for commercial cattle and sheepraising, and then along came the Marxists who called them antiquated and relics of the past. The only difference between Marx and the capitalist vultures who went through the trouble of buying and developing steam engine-powered mills in dirty industrial cities, was that Marx wanted the economic benefits of the new industrialism to be shared by the workers...rather than the investors who controlled capital. A few days ago, I came across an indy radio(podcast) interview with 'Nathan Robinson' (editor of Current Affairs) who earlier this month wrote an important rebuttal to the BS about persecuted rightwingers on campus ...i.e. Jordan Peterson, Sam Harris, Christian Hoffs Somers, Ben Shapiro, Dave Rubin etc. etc. etc.. Robinson asks the simple, obvious question: how can a wimpy A-hole like our Jordan Peterson claim to be persecuted and shut out of debate when he earns an estimated $80,000 per month (US) speaking mostly on American college campuses and is all across the dial of corporate sponsored rightwing radio...not to mention frequently given a platform by self-proclaimed libertarians like Joe Rogan for example (who seems to think these guttersnipes have a point and give him cred with the alt-right). Pretty Loud For Being So Silenced Robinson also points out that you won't find long time left critics of US policies like Noam Chomsky being invited to speak at college campuses, nor does he get a chance to speak on any of the NPR or PBS shows he used to do years ago, and neither are younger generations of fellow leftists given a mike except on small independent media or foreign media...if you've noticed all the sqawking about RT and Radio Sputnik hosts and show guests since Clinton fumbled the 2016 coronation....I mean election. So much for all the lathering and bellyaching about SOCIAL JUSTICE WARRIORS!

    Somebody asked a question about these people that I wonder about: do they feel that any woman has a right to them ? Or that involuntarily celibate women they won't see are their fault ?

    Justin Trudeau the Worst PM Since Pierre Trudeau?

    Fair enough, here you go ... https://www.nationalobserver.com/2017/02/02/analysis/how-vulnerable-canada-fake-news-very So this is how they get everyone to say the same thing .... And in the end it is about controlling the message, and with social media, they are having a very hard time with it. Where SHOULD you trust your news from? We even know that Facebook itself took part in social manipulation by putting stories in people's feeds to determine reaction to them. We also know what gets reported early has a good chance of being incorrect. I will again point out the WMDs that Saddam was alledged to have was coordinated, not just in Canadian media, but Internationally as well from the USA, the UK, Europe and several other nations. https://globalnews.ca/news/4039886/canada-stem-fake-news-government/ Mind you this if Fox news, but I don't think you can say it's not happening here. https://www.newswire.ca/news-releases/fake-news-creates-a-serious-problem-for-canadian-journalists-new-study-finds-649584013.html The rise of social media is what is causing a good deal of fake news in MSM, because the reporters may not be vetting information before it's posted as legit news. And they admit that they use social media for a good portion of their research. Now some may not be pushing it knowing it is fake news, but you can bet that there are some who are doing it on purpose. But they are not vetting their information, completely lazy-ass journalism. Another problem is government sponsored articles that look like genuine news articles , but is nothing more than social manipulation. Normally people don't like being lied to or having the hood pulled over their heads. If the government (Health Canada) wanted to put a legit message out then why not just do so? http://www.cbc.ca/news/health/second-opinion180421-1.4628887 https://globalnews.ca/news/4039886/canada-stem-fake-news-government/ This is a short video that can explain a good deal of what happens within the MSM. This is why independent media began to rise. Now they seem to have some of the same problem, but on a larger scale but. What I find really interesting is the part about the fake incubators, and the same speech by Harper and Howard side by side for comparison. And what kind of stories get pushed to the top. I am sure everyone loved having nothing but that stupid ass royal wedding pushed to them via every platform over the past week. Now it's also interesting that it leads to guys like Jon Stewart who kind of reported more real news via his satirical show than most MSM. That causes MSM a problem as it seems the controlled agenda being pushed through them which seems to go against what real journalism is all about. I end up going to some MSM and some independant media sites to get the real story as almost all sides are putting out some fucking fake message to throw us off.
  20. No on all counts....the U.S. interstate highway system resulted from a national defense/economic strategy and Depression era jobs programs. Eisenhower liked what he saw in Germany's autobahn. The system was/is mostly funded by tolls and fuels taxes, and is the backbone for transportation of goods and services (e.g. trucking). The provinces have nothing like it, and as stated by another member, one has to wonder where all the tax revenue goes in Canada, especially in Ontario, which now has more public debt than California (but a much smaller population).
  21. I don't know Andrea Horvath personally...though I do live in Hamilton, and like most NDP candidates who win federal and provincial office, she has been able to hold on to her seat by being a better than liberal-or-conservative constituency worker. So, most people who have talked or dealt with Andrea Horvath or people in her office have good things to say regardless of their political opinions. That said, I believe her political orientation is as far left as she believes she is able to take her party. Remember that the biggest problem she had as Ontario NDP leader last time around was the perceived shift she made to the center to appease the more centrist leaders of the Party. And Trudeau...I figured from the start, was an empty suit, who would say whatever he felt people wanted to hear. How else could he promise more pipelines to the oil interests out west/ while promising to honor all the treaties and conditions of land claims by first nations who didn't want pipelines running through their territories regardless of money being offered to throw at them to sweeten the pot? Obviously Trudeau had to disappoint someone...and by trying to play Solomon and split the baby....approving some pipelines and refusing others, he's made enemies with all sides! Isn't that what usually happens when a centrist narcissist has to show clear conviction...someone get Barack Obama on the line for confirmation!
  22. Certainly, carbon taxes are similar to sales taxes (which conservatives don't seem to object to, since it was Mulroo who brought us the GST to start with!) in that even the poorest people have to buy food, clothing and other necessities as well as paying rent, and all taxes on consumption are going to pull more money out of the pockets of lower income earners than richer people who...as we hear so often about the Filthy Rich - can only buy so many mansions, cars, yachts, private tropical islands etc. with their ill-gotten gains. Therefore consumer taxes take proportionately less from the rich than those in the lower income demographics. That was the only reason why the Feds sweetened the deal offering GST-now-HST rebates here in Ontario...which don't matter a crap if you're in the middle income levels and earn too much to qualify for rebates! But, as the CBC story notes, many of us who had spent years doing long commutes on the highway back n forth to work started feeling an incentive to give up driving 100 miles every day as we got older and the long drives started taking more out of us by way of sleep deprivation. That along with rising insurance costs, gas, vehicle maintenance and just having to go through buying a new or newer 2nd hand vehicle every 4 to 5 years was enough to push me to move closer to work, even if it meant having to drop one or both cars entirely! If you move into an urban center with good public transit access...not to mention if you don't mind riding a bike or running and walking a few miles each day, getting rid of the car is a pleasure...not to mention reducing carbon impacts of the vehicle and the carbon/resource costs of producing more and more cars! There was a time in Canada and the US when nobody had a car, and it wasn't until after the end of WWII that the majority of working adults were buying and driving their own cars. This move to the private automobile is presented as a personal consumer choice in our BS historical narratives, but according to my father...who grew up and came of age during the Depression and went to war along with so many others of that generation, he intended to get married, buy a house and do other things before thinking about buying a car...BUT he felt like he had no choice because cities and towns where he moved to (Niagara Peninsula) started ending bus service to factories, closing street car rail lines..like one that ran along the Welland Canal from Port Colbourne to St. Catharines, and scaling back local transit as well as between cities and towns. This all occurred at a time when the Feds borrowed billions from the Bank of Canada (then still printing the money, and having the power to loan money into existence..that was handed over to the chartered banks) all to build hundreds of miles of new highways across Ontario and across Canada. Like the building of the state highway system in the US, this all could be considered a free gift from the Governments to the Highway Lobby- the car companies, oil companies and their investors. Now, putting this all out there, I ask 'why can't we take it back in the other direction, now that we know the environmental crisis this world is headed for, as well as looming resource shortages and rising prices that continued car production will cause?' I think the real problem and likely futility of trying to deal with environmental crises is that most people want to save the future for the generations coming after us, PROVIDED it doesn't cost them any...even the slightest discomfort! Recently, a nationwide poll found that almost 80% of Canadians accept the standard narrative on GHG's causing global warming BUT, barely 20% are willing to spend more or receive less in benefits to deal with the crisis! To me, this tells me that liberals are the worst actors of all in this drama! Unlike conservatives, they don't live in denial of scientific evidence or could care less, but instead want to pretend to be doing something about it that will cost them very little....like turning out the lights on Earth Day! Now, I believe the only hope for survival of complex life on Planet Earth and the only fainter hope of human survival for more than another century is the total collapse and end of modern capitalist industrial civilization. At some point in the future of this crazy system, everything will be used up beyond the point of profitability and the exploitation of this world will end! I just hope that people can survive somewhere on this planet as it continues heating up over the next thousand years or so!

    You mean heterosexuality? Yes it is. Wanting women is a biological instinct not dependent upon a patriarchal culture.

    Marx was a Socialist. Are you going to say there is no socialism involved in political discussions? Whoever created it it is certainly deeply embraced by the Left and far Left. Don't blame social justice activists for their words and actions, which mirror socialists in politics and academia? I get that the Left doesn't understand individual responsibility, but even in that light your suggestion is silly.

    People do not behave or think as groups, but as individuals. Why should he not resent being labeled 'privileged' when he has no privilege? What does it matter if 'dark people' trend higher on poverty stats? Who says that's a result of discrimination as opposed to personal behavior? If people think in terms of identity politics that is because the Left and even the far Left has been pronouncing it so for decades now. Why would it be unusual that some white people would start to accept this about themselves, and not simply about other racial and ethnic groups? The Left divides the world into oppressors and oppressed. If you're successful in life, you go into the oppressor column, and if not, you're oppressed. You can presumably even move back and forth. I was once oppressed, because I worked cheap, crappy, low paying jobs. Now I am an oppressor because I make a lot of money. This, of course, is preposterous on any kind of intellectual level, but most of what the Left believes is just as inconsistent and illogical. Believe in Communism, for example is one of those nonsensical idea the far Left is attached to, despite it having been proven unworkable in case after case.
  26. Shall we talk , Al-Queda, ISIS, and other terror groups the USA has clearly supported in the past? The USA does indeed sponsor terrorism.

    Are you kidding me? It is the point. It's used as the main reason that created Israel, while ignoring 60 years of Zionist planning to resurrect Israel. Israel was always going to exist again, REGARDLESS of the reasons that people claim (aka the holocaust). So it is the point and you are the one who is arguring for nothing. Because you agree with me, but then turn around to make another post that indicates you don't agree with me and then say it's not important. That's your gimmick and it sucks. Think of it like 9/11. The reasons for starting the war on terror are bullshit, but the implications of that has been felt all over the world for close to 20 years now. I never said they did not use it as a reason, I said it as a bullshit reason and I stand by that notion. No, it's more of you are saying what I have been saying. We can go back a page or two to see just that. But sure case closed, let's move on.
