  1. The Crosby Issue

    Why is it divisive? If nobody supports police brutality, why is anybody mad that players protest against police brutality? Yeah, but Trump said what Trump said. Maybe when they say "keep politics out of sports" people should direct that at him. -k
  2. Edmonton Western-made terror attack

    But eating shawarma and watching da'wah videos won't educate him to feel more comfortable in his new surroundings. I think obviously we've just failed to welcome him to our culture, and eating delicious Alberta meat and watching a movie about ranchers will help him appreciate the wonders of western Canada. -k
  3. The Crosby Issue

    Oh. That's an issue of bi-partisan agreement? Ok, then. So why do people keep saying that protesting police brutality during the anthem is political and divisive? -k
  4. Edmonton Western-made terror attack

    After reflecting on this, I now realize that this poor man probably just felt isolated and alienated from Alberta's cowboy culture. During his incarceration I think he should be fed delicious Alberta bacon and made to watch Brokeback Mountain over and over, so that he will learn to feel more at home. -k

    Which political side supports police brutality? -k
  6. Hailstorm!!  Will be live-blogging this. Stay tuned for updates.

      Never mind. It's over. Move along.

  7. Edmonton Western-made terror attack

    If this is the best the Islamic State can come up with, I don't know why anybody is scared of them. Some sad loser who decided he would go on a terrorist spree because he couldn't do anything else right, and he couldn't even do this right either. He couldn't even kill pedestrians with a truck. What a failure. ISIS are a bunch of losers. -k
  8. The Crosby Issue

    Does that include the big military ceremonies the armed forces paid the NFL to host? -k
  9. The Crosby Issue

    Yes. When Tim Thomas refused the White House invitation in 2011, many conservatives applauded him for taking a stand for his personal beliefs. And many liberals were miffed that he was disrespecting the President or creating disunity or whatever. Here in 2017, liberals are applauding people like Steph Curry for declining the White House invitation, and conservatives are miffed at people like him for disrespecting the President or creating disunity or whatever. Same old, same old. When the our side does it, it's courageous and great! When the other side does it, it's offensive and terrible. In regard to Sidney Crosby, I share the view expressed by William Shatner and echoed recently by PK Subban regarding the anthem controversy. The Shat's view is: "I'm a guest in this country." Subban said basically the same. Sidney Crosby knows this as well. -k
  10. game of thrones

    It looks like Viserion leveled up... So Jaime is heading North with no army and no Cersei, to keep a promise? Maybe he's finally done with Cersei. You know those cartoons of a guy with a little angel on one shoulder and a little devil on the other shoulder, both trying to influence him? For Jaime, Brienne and Cersei are the little angel and devil on his shoulders. Ever since they first met, Brienne has helped him rediscover his conscience and put him in touch with the man he could have been instead of the man he turned out to be. Littlefinger made Sansa into sort of a protege... like Roose Bolton, he got ended by his own creation. From the things Sansa said during the "trial", it seems evident that Bran has been sharing some of his knowledge with his sisters. Perhaps he is the one who sorted out the rift between Sansa and Arya. Littlefinger should have hightailed it out of Winterfell right after Bran said "chaos is a ladder" during their little chat. And Samwell and Bran put together the pieces of Jon's past. Auntie Danaerys. You've fallen in love with your auntie, Jon. When Jaime reaches Winterfell, he and Jon can commiserate. -k
  11. game of thrones

    They made it seem like Dany and the dragons got from Dragonstone to Eastwatch in about 5 minutes. I assume these ravens also travel at supersonic speeds. They seem to be faster than FedEx and more reliable than Verizon. I can't tell which dragon is which, aside from Drogon is the one Dany rides. I assume the one that went down was Visarion, because Visarys was a loser. Yeah, Arya's being dumb. "Alright, House Stark is back in charge, the North is reunited, and I'mma screw everything up by sowing discord among the Northern lords." This feels fairly slap-dash... something they just put together to create some tension for characters who aren't involved in the major storylines at this point. -k
  12. The Battle of Charlottesville

    The Jefferson Davis plaque on Hudson's Bay building in Montreal was removed by decision of The Bay, not by vandals. It wasn't a great historical piece, it was donated by the United Daughters of the Confederacy in the 1950s. There wasn't really a good reason for a Canadian department store to display a plaque honoring a Confederate leader, especially a plaque donated by a shady group. -k

    But it was sure satisfying seeing the little puke turn purple and choked to death, wasn't it? Fun times! -k
  14. The Battle of Charlottesville

    I wasn't endorsed by Nazis. I wasn't asked whether I accept their endorsement. If you ask me my opinion about Nazis 50 times over the next few days, I promise I can give you a clear and direct answer each and every time. -k
  15. The Battle of Charlottesville

    Again: why did he give all those ambivalent responses? "I don't know anything about David Duke," etc? If he had been clear in the first case, he wouldn't have been asked the question so many times afterward. You make it sound like this was a media plot to get him to trip him up, but again: it's not a difficult question to answer. It's an incredibly simple question to answer. Trump himself gave a very clear answer to that question in 2000. If he'd been that direct in the past election, the issue would have gone away. He chose to give those ambiguous answers, for reasons that are obvious to everyone, including yourself. And that's why the media kept hounding him on the subject. When Trump kept shrugging off those questions, what he was really saying is "I don't want to be associated with white nationalists, but I won't reject that endorsement because I still want white nationalists to vote for me." -k
