  1. How can you compare the two? Male circumcision is cosmetic and sometimes medically necessary but does not damage the body the way female circumcision does. You wanna ban both for some politically correct reason? Fine have at it and let us see the response from the savages and it is savage that wish to do this to women. How people could do this to their daughters and still claim to care for them is beyond me.
  2. Where is the NDP

    Trudeau is only a right wingers compared to the teachings of Marx. At most he is center but not right.
  3. Guess they didn't want their independence bad enough. A bunch of people wanted independence to the south of me a couple hundred years ago and they took on the biggest military the world had ever seen at the time. Their lives were threatened also
  4. USA war crimes - atomic bombs

    The bombs were terrible but did less harm than the fire bombing of Toyko and an invasion would have been much worse. Japan was not going to surrender and the Allies could not just walk away. It had gone too far. Think Japan or Germany would not have used them if they created them First?
  5. We all voted to stay. Democracy is a bitter pill when your on the losing side.
  6. Democracy is not pretty and is by no means perfect but I have yet to see anything better. (To paraphrase Winston Churchill) Some in Canada call it an elected dictatorship and yes in many ways it is. I personally loathe the people that form the current Canadian Government and those that are the Ontario Government but I lost. They were elected to those posts in a system I support so I will exercise my free speech and disagree with them when I see fit.
  7. Indigenous girl sparks outrage.

    My question is why is the cbc running a head lice story? Why not chicken pox or the flu? It is a common occurrence in children at school and before the shots start it is usually the kids that are the cleanest get them quick. The picture was likely the cbc trying to be multi cultural and didn't see this as an insult. If they had it would have been a while boy
  8. I was of the opinion the Poland was giving Germany the middle finger over refugees. If Poland and the other nations that are not taking refugees start talking to Turkey about an alliance it would dramatically shift economic power away from the EU. Combined with the strained relationship with the U.S. and the U.K I think we will see some compromises.
  9. How to prevent terror attacks ?

    I loathe the fact you are right. The CIA and others were breaking rules to get the job done. Your average terrorist does not follow any rules except to kill as many people as possible. We as a society avoid innocent people as much as possible in our war on terror. It sucks I admit but we will never know how many lives waterboarding saved
  10. Trump is very much in over his head much like our current PM but he does not have the staff or the ability to get the staff that could help him. The Media is very much playing games and it is defiantly doing its very best to destroy him. Congress and the Senate are too busy fighting each other and nothing is getting done. It is a disaster that can only compare to Lincoln being elected. Now Trump is by no means a Lincoln and I have a hard time believing they are the same species. Now certain individuals on this forum believe the world would have been better off if Nazi Germany or the U.S.S.R had taken over the world but all we can do is hope this settles down before it gets really bad
  11. How to prevent terror attacks ?

    There is no 100% way to ensure there are no new terror attacks without completely sacrificing all personal freedoms in the mix. Sure we could all wear location chips and have cameras with bugs attached to our bodies that let the police know what we are all up too. It is not worth it. Cameras are everywhere in the U.K. and that did not stop people using cars as weapons. There are too many guns out there to ban them now. Besides if the left gets any crazier in the U.S. and Canada it might be a good idea to be armed.
  12. I still think the big winner is G.W.Bush. The invasion of Iraq left a power vacuum that made the entire middle east a bigger mess than it was before. The deregulation's that arguably lead to the crash of 2008. James Buchanan was a disgrace but his failures did not effect the world the way G.W.Bush did.
  13. Venezuela??

    Your leaving out a ridiculous amount of details in your rantings. Vietnam was a stumbled on mistake you are very much correct because of France. They were there first and pretty much left the US. Holding the bag. In to deep to get out and embarrassed to be there. Think Breexit was part of a capitalist plot? Every banker and investor were shaking their heads on that one. That was a choice by democracy. Venezuela is a combination of socialism and what happens when the talented leave. CIA doesn't have to do anything there. Just sit back and watch. Oil refinery plants are running at 50% while employing 3 times the workers before being nationalized but that is America's fault to I guess. Nationalized grocery stores for trying to sell bread at cost and not the state controlled prices while the military steals the food and sells it to the black market. Yup all the fault of the US.
  14. Democracy is big nonsense

    The problem with that is if higher taxes are needed the people will likely vote against it and there are times taxes need to be raised. The elected dictators we have now are still kept in check by the rest of the government. Trump has the position of the most powerful man in the world but even he cannot change pass any legislation without support from lower elected officials. Democracy is not pretty but it beats any alternative I have seen
  15. I wish you luck. Sincerely I am not starting old arguments. I think you should take something for your time but I think you are on to something.
