About This Club

An experiment to see if this is a better way of discussing things rationally - by removing irrational posts. Even idiots are free to respond (you know who you are) and I will only delete your post if it's idiotic or trolling. Ie, any talk Jewish conspiracies, or dick waving by Americans is gonna get deleted.
  1. What's new in this club
  2. Ayaan Hirsi Ali writes about tribalism and how it consumed her former country of Somalia in hatred, violence and then civil war. She sees the same thing happening in the United States, as it separates into two distrustful, angry tribes. But she wasn’t interested in a rational discussion. She interrupted me mid-sentence, launching into a monologue about John Bolton, the former Ambassador to the United Nations and a fellow at AEI (and subsequently National Security Advisor to President Trump). Bolton, my friend insisted, was a loathsome, hateful, racist, neo-conservative warmonger. The list
  3. A review of a book on 'masochistic nationalism'. This is not something I'd ever heard of but it's clearly something most of the Canadian political, media and academic elites embrace. Witness Justin Trudeau rushing from group to group to burst into tears as he apologizes for how mean Canada has been to them in the past. In his 1945 essay, “Notes on Nationalism,” George Orwell contrasted “positive nationalism”—pride in one’s country—with the “negative” and “transferred” nationalisms displayed by supporters of the Soviet Union—the denigration of one’s country and the embrace of another.

  4. How well immigrants do in Canada is in part due to how much effort is made in resettling them and helping them learn the local language. The federal government pays hundreds of millions of dollars to the provinces to aid in this, but there's a catch, Quebec gets ten times more per person than the rest of Canada. In fact, Quebec last year got almost as much money to resettle 30,000 immigrants as the rest of Canada did for 370,000. Quebec will be handed roughly 10 times more taxpayer dollars from Ottawa to settle each one of its immigrants than B.C., Ontario, Alberta and the other provinces
  5. Crazy guy jumps out of the passenger seat with a pair of butcher knives and goes after police.
  6. A motorcycle cop in California is fired at by the guy he stops, but turns out to be the better shot.
  7. Another moron decides he can't do what ten armed cops are telling him to do and gets his ass blown away by police. Too bad, so sad.
  8. This is a bad one. A cop is murdered by the side of the highway by a man who is later gunned down by police. Definitely not for the faint of heart.
