  1. I have just confirmed that I still have only one member.
  2. Yes, but Canada is much better at it than Israel. Luckily for Canada, and unlike Israel, we are not surrounded by nations, groups and proxies that wish to exterminate every person in the country.
  3. Oh, this place makes me laugh sometimes! The dictator referred to in Venezuela was Hugo Chavez. He was the definition of ultra left wing, so far left that he repeatedly embarrassed his good buddies Castro in Cuba and Morales in Bolivia. Of course, they'd laugh at him only behind his back, since his longtime practice was to give away the oil that belonged to his people, thereby bankrupting the country. 'Right wing manner'. LOL. Oh, and his successor is even dumber. Pierre Trudeau would love both of them to bits, and I expect Justin has a special place in his heart from Chavez, Castro(s) and any other left wing loon.
  4. The EU will be around as long as it is advantageous for Germany. And that is reality.
  5. More recently. Syria has been Irans proxy and their pointy stick in trying to exterminate the Jews. Once Assad has competed the extermination of all remaining resistance, Syria will resume the campaign to wipe out Israel. The West can help this campaign, as they have been, by smashing ISIL in Syria and Iraq.
  6. Florence Foster Jenkins. Ricki and The Flash. Into The Woods. Should I go on? Streep has been a parody of herself for many years now. What is puzzling is how the movies are still made, none of them could possibly make money.
  7. However, you can reasonably criticize both for just going through the motions, for decades now in the case of Streep. De Niro must be broke, he embarrasses himself time after time after time in pathetic roles in pathetic movies. You can also criticize Hollywood for continuing to laud and nominate these has-beens particularly Streep, who have undue influence in this incestuous burg. How else can you possibly explain yet another nomination for Best Actress this year, two hours of Streep hamming it up again?
  8. The EU is desperate for somebody to love- nearly as desperate as Trudeau is for somebody to love him. Anybody. Please. Brussels is suffering from performance anxiety on every front. The UK leaving is a massive blow to the EU. Trump is an unknown quantity, but everything signals that it won't be business as usual. The EU has long lived in fear of China, in the certainty that neither they as a group or as individual members can hope to trade straight up/compete with China. And worst of all, there is major discontent in many member countries. It is like the old lyric: 'If you can't be with the one(s) you love, love the one you're with'. Canada for Europe right now is like the person you meet late at night at the bar after a lot of beer. Leave without saying goodbye in in the cold grey dawn, and no chance of taking them home to meet Mom.
  9. The robots would be welcome if they paid the fat dues to belong to the union, and voted as instructed at provincial and federal elections. They would also be obliged to break down regularly, to provide work to substitute teachers.
  10. Is that the new book from John Grisham?
  11. I guess you are still looking for that first clue about mortgage regulation, getting mortgage insurers and mortgage lenders a bit mixed up? Just so you know, they are distinct entities. Are you talking about funding for CMHC insurance, which is quite profitable? Harper actually limited that at the end of his tenure. Also during that tenure we saw rapid growth in private mortgage insurers , especially with Genworth. Every PM since the creation of CMHC has manipulated CMHC as a significant part of overall fiscal policy. It is not surprising since housing is a major part of our economy. Diddling with CMHC is not just social engineering, it involves a lot of money everywhere. Trudeau has been very active in that regard since elected.
  12. Seriously?? I marvel at just how fuzzyheaded the left is in this country. First, what Canada does and does not do is of little interest to anybody outside our borders. Second, every Western country, including all our major allies, are arms exporters. If Canada has cancelled that vehicle/arms order with Saudi Arabia, there would have been mayhem with many countries falling over themselves to get that deal. They would laugh themselves sick at us if we had cancelled. Even two 'neutral' countries, Sweden and Switzerland, are bigger arms exporters than Canada.
  13. LOL. Paul Martin had no **king clue the 2008 recession was coming. In fact, every major Canadian bank did gamble with their money.
  14. Mostly , yes. Rivers of testosterone flow in most cop gatherings. Why do you support heterophobia?
  15. Is that $60 per hour paid for by the organizers? if not, why not?
