  1. What's new in this club
  2. So now we have someone saying we should bring in rationing and mandatory cutbacks on everything we consume. https://www.theglobeandmail.com/opinion/article-the-climate-crisis-is-like-a-world-war-so-lets-talk-about-rationing/ Some environmental activists and leaders suggest we should practise moderation, take the bus, eat veggie burgers. But voluntary measures just can’t deliver when the problem is this big and time is so short. That’s why it may be time for mandatory cutbacks on the kinds of consumption that threaten all of us. It may be time for rationing. I guess what they really want is for us all to self-immolate, in order to save the world.
  3. No sh.t Sherlock https://www.washingtonpost.com/weather/2019/12/13/worlds-highest-weather-stations-reveal-intense-sunshine-may-be-melting-ice-mount-everest/
  4. #TrollingtheGuardian might be trending, more on who is behind the satire (or was) A popular parody account has been suspended from Twitter following outrage by one of the largest media outlets in the world. The man behind Shaniqua O’Tool, an account that had over 15,000 followers at the time of suspension, says The Guardian forced Twitter to censor comedy https://twitter.com/search?q=%23trollingtheguardian&src=typed_query https://www.thepostmillennial.com/trollingtheguardian-the-guardian-is-censoring-satirists/
  5. They were ahead of the game on Watergate, too.
  6. Before you think that I’ve gone off my rocker, read to the very end…. The Arctic Ocean is warming up, icebergs are growing scarcer and in some places the seals are finding the water too hot according to a report to the Commerce Department yesterday from the Consulate at Bergen, Norway. Reports from fishermen, seal hunters and explorers all point to a radical change in climate conditions and hitherto unheard of temperatures in the Arctic zone. Exploration expeditions report that scarcely any ice has been met as far north as 81 degrees 29 minutes. Soundings to a depth of 3,100 meters showed the gulf stream still very warm. Great masses of ice have been replaced by moraines of earth and stones, the report continued, while at many points well known glaciers have entirely disappeared. Very few seals and no white fish are found in the eastern Arctic, while vast shoals of herring and smelts which have never before ventured so far north, are being encountered in the old seal fishing grounds. Within a few years it is predicted that due to the ice melt the sea will rise and make most coast cities uninhabitable. Oh, sorry ... I owe all you readers an apology .... I neglected to mention that this report was from November 2 , 1922. It was reported by the AP and published in The Washington Post 96 years ago. ... The 1922 panic must have been caused by all of the Model T Ford's exhausts ... or possibly horse and cattle farts?
  7. I again repeat what I said on the other similar thread with Arg, myself I fear too many people are now obsessed with changing themselves when they probably should be learning to accept themselves. It could be they need to spend more one focusing on the meta-physical as opposed to the physical.
  8. Update, the judge has said the father has to give consent... yeah for common sense https://www.thepostmillennial.com/breaking-judge-says-father-of-7-year-old-boy-can-stop-sons-hormone-treatment/
  9. I can't get over this case in Texas where a mother decided that her 7 year old boy is really a girl because he liked the movie Frozen. The husband insisted that he's a boy but it went to court and ruled yes, the boy is a girl and he will now be "transitioned" into one. 7 years old, he doesn’t know, it’s heartbreaking. The transition includes puberty suppression, administration of cross-sex hormones, and ultimately surgical removal of reproductive organs and can certainly affect his health down the line. How…. Just how….. https://nypost.com/2019/10/23/texas-jury-rules-against-divorced-dad-trying-to-stop-7-year-old-sons-gender-transition/
  10. Good piece here, explaining how Alicia Elliot, Catherine Hernandez, Carrianne Leung, Carol Off and other Canadian 'progressives’ (meaning socialists) are leading a campaign of hate and censorship against a leading Canadian feminist who is reasonable and only speaks out in aid of women. E.g. an abused woman in a shelter for women had to leave in favour of a transwoman who was still a biological male… abused women don’t feel comfortable with a male, trans or otherwise. https://t.co/ENDhMoUJlw
  11. Sadly, the rush to push young people into changing their sex is going wrong as many are seeking help. No surprise, it's not something young people should be pushed into, better wait until they can make an informed decision as an adult. https://news.sky.com/story/hundreds-of-young-trans-people-seeking-help-to-return-to-original-sex-11827740
  12. I know the left likes to eat their own but really, eat your babies- was she for real or just having a meltdown or what https://www.dailywire.com/news/ocasio-cortez-responds-to-womans-eat-the-babies-rant-dont-talk-about-it
  13. It is (or maybe was) considered a mental illness by WHO et al, but I'm betting that will or has changed. It used to be rare, but not anymore it seems. "If you're a trans woman, you may not have given much thought to Pap tests and cervical cancer. And if you haven't, that makes a fair amount of sense. After all, in order to get cervical cancer, you need to have a cervix." I don't care if a person wants to change their sex, it's their business but I don't believe that it should be front and centre for cancer screening, even tho they say there’s a very small risk that you can develop cancer in the tissues of your neo-vagina or neo-cervix. (neo = fake) IMO the compulsion to be politically correct should not override science or the need to allocate resources where most needed as those resources are strained beyond breaking allready. Maybe the next step is to treat trans-men/women for testicular cancer.
  14. Why is it that we as a society have given these people with this mental disorder such a large voice, that is taking over to much of our time already...Why can't we just treat the problem in a mental health clinic and get it over with...
  15. The world has gone bonkers; this is the Canadian Cancer society no less denying science. I'm pretty sure you can't get cancer in a fake cervix. A new ad campaign to fight cervical cancer is dominated by a transgender person who is a biological male and has no cervix. It's hard to comprehend this asinine politically correct ad campaign coming from this organization, and note, that they are encouraging people without a cervi xto be screened for cervical cancer in gov't funded health system which inherently denies medical resources to people who have a genuine need for them as the system is allready overburdened. https://www.cancer.ca/en/prevention-and-screening/reduce-cancer-risk/find-cancer-early/screening-in-lgbtq-communities/trans-women-and-cervical-cancer-screening/?region=on
  16. If the "climate cultists" don't achieve their "radical goal", people will starve and die, and society will collapse. Mitigating the effects offers the hope of reducing the overall death toll and reducing societal "collapse" to societal upheaval. **radical goals = a few cents more at gas pumps, a little less meat on our plates, investment in green energy, gradual reduction on fossil fuel reliance.
  17. If the cultists achieve their radical goals, people will starve and die as society collapses.
  18. And the longer climate change deniers fight mitigation because "someone over there is a worse offender" or because "it won't, by itself, solve the problem" or becsuse "3% of scientists disagree" or because "it's just a plot by government to steal our money" or because "it's a hoax by the Chinese", the harsher those conditions will be. For many people, climate change will mean the "end of the world" as the land they lived in for millennia will become uninhabitable.
  19. Well, when he comes up with the solution to the problem I hope he fills us in. As for people surviving in harsh conditions, that's only if they want to stay and give it a shot. I wouldn't.
  20. Petteri Taalas, the secretary-general of the WMO, told Talouselämä magazine that he called for a calm and rational approach to the climate debate, and disagreed with those who are promoting end-of-the-world scenarios. https://www.theepochtimes.com/chief-of-world-meteorological-organization-castigates-climate-alarmists_3073666.html “Now we should stay calm and ponder what is really the solution to this problem,” Taalas told Talouselämä magazine. “It is not going to be the end of the world. The world is just becoming more challenging. In parts of the globe, living conditions are becoming worse, but people have survived in harsh conditions.”
  21. Well, the prof. who wrote that could be losing his job, so much for freedom of expression, even for a Prof. Why can it not be discussed reasonably without fear of reprcussionsÉ https://www.thestar.com/amp/calgary/2019/09/08/heated-arguments-among-mount-royal-university-faculty-after-instructors-op-ed-opposing-diversity.html Part of the dilemma, Peacock explained, is whether or not the op-ed is covered under the principles of academic freedom. The concept came about as a means to allow scholars to pursue or critique controversial topics without risk of losing their positions. Except it isn’t clean-cut: disagreements exist within the academic community over whether this freedom applies just to a scholar’s particular field, or all scholarly material entirely.
  22. Apparently the Editor took it down as he hadn't seen it before it went to print. So much for freedom of speech. archived link https://web.archive.org/web/20190907021958/https://vancouversun.com/opinion/op-ed/mark-hecht-ethnic-diversity-harms-a-countrys-social-trust-economic-well-being-argues-professor
  23. Sorry, it was there this morning, try this it`s dated Sept. 6th, 2019 https://theprovince.com/opinion/op-ed/mark-hecht-ethnic-diversity-harms-a-countrys-social-trust-economic-well-being-argues-professor/wcm/b5d62139-257a-41d0-a800-ecad6074340d strange, they must`ve taken it down but it`s still up on my computer so I copied it and attached a .doc It talks about Denmark and how they have had to make changes and requirements for integration. excerpted: Diversity can be a strength or a detriment depending on how it`s handled, it isn't good or bad for the most part, it`s how it`s handled. Canada handles it fairly well but there are challenges that Canada faces but not as strong as other countries. I`d say unity is better than diversity and it`s not racism to discuss all aspects of it. Ethnic diversity can harm social trust and economic well.doc
  24. I found an article, perhaps the basis for the missing one, from 2007. https://archive.boston.com/news/globe/ideas/articles/2007/08/05/the_downside_of_diversity/ Didn't read all of it, but what I did read suggests that the full story is more nuanced than "brown/Muslim immigrants are bad".
  25. https://theprovince.com/?s=diversity Hard to read an article that doesn't exist. Oh well.
  26. This article in today's Vancouver Sun took guts to write and is giving some people a headache because of it`s alleged racism Mark Hecht: Ethnic diversity harms a country's social trust, economic well-being - this takes guts. Many people probably agree but are afraid to say so. https://theprovince.com/opinion/op-ed/mark-hecht-ethnic-diversity-harms-a-countrys-social-trust-economic-well-being-argues-professor/wcm/b5d62139-257a-41d0-a800-ecad6074340d OPINION: Canada should say goodbye to diversity, tolerance and inclusion to rebuild trust in one another and start accepting a new norm for immigration policy — compatibility, cohesion and social trust.
