  2. Disgusting. It’s time Democrats denounced this behaviour instead of encouraging it. Who are the fascists again?

  3. Ottawa creating ‘inventory’ of racial minorities to fill senior public service posts. Oh just what we need. The federal government apparently doesn't feel there's enough racism and is looking to create more by encouraging resentment towards racial minorities. Now every time a senior public servant is non-white everyone will simply assume they've got the job solely due to skin colour. Way to go, brainiacs. By the way, the great majority of these 'racialized' candidates will be immigrants. Somehow or other we have to make it up to them for not hiring their parents - who never lived in Canad

  4. Canadians seem to be looking to the government more and more to provide them with whatever it is they feel they should have but don't. And if it costs millions, billions, tens of billions, well, so what? As long as someone else is footing the bill. I think what we're seeing is the fairly predictable result of a progressive tax system where, over the last decades, more and more people have been removed from the tax roles. When you don't have to pay - ever - then naturally you're going to vote for whatever party offers you more free stuff. Why not? “My rent should be waived!” “Tuition sho

  5. You're so predictable in stretching the definition of 'racism' to encompass every judgement made against anyone who isn't white and Christian. It's the soft liberal bigotry of low expectations all you lefties seem to possess.

  7. Society is in a total war over facts and spin. Virtually every aspect of society that has any influence is infected by it. Many (not all) want to push their own agenda, to control the narrative. We are bombarded by propoganda throughout much of our day. This has been the case for a long, long time, but it seems to keep intensifying. We live in an age where science has even become politicized over ie: climate change. None of us have been immune to it. Film, TV, news, message boards, twitter, academics, elementary/high school, religion, parental upbringing. You are brainwashed. We n

  9. Everything you say is just laced with CNN-level ignorance & idiocy. FYI Trump and the other pro-lifers don't have ulterior motives for stopping abortions. Trump isn't any more in favour of black abortions than white. The mother of American abortions, Margaret Sanger on the other hand, actually was. Hillary Clinton famously said of Margaret Sanger: "I admire Margaret Sanger enormously. Her courage, her tenacity, her vision".

  11. I'm sure there will be no debates. The covid-situation is a perfect excuse to avoid debates which would be Biden's Achilles heel. The fewer people see that Biden is a demented goofy the better his chances of winning the election.

  13. Intergenerational trauma is usually seen within one family in which the parents or grandparents were traumatized, and each generation of that family continues to experience trauma in some form. In these cases the source can usually be traced back to a devastating event, and the trauma is unique to that family. What makes the intergenerational trauma in the case of First Nations people different is that it wasn't the result of a targeted event against an individual – it was a set of government policies that targeted and affected a whole generation. Children were traumatized when they were

  14. https://www.cnn.com/2020/09/12/us/los-angeles-county-officers-shot-compton/index.html According to CNN it's not that big a deal. No mention of the mocking. Just statements from Biden and Schiff, two great guys lol. Is that really what the Dems think of the police? Aren't the police supposed to be re-imagined, defunded, etc? Isn't it a micro-aggression against minorities to portray the police as ***shudder*** some kind of heroes? When you look at this video, just realize that this wasn't the reaction of one person out of 1,000. There was almost no one there. Of all the

  16. There is zero evidence any of these racial sensitivity or unconscious bias sessions do anything whatsoever other than make money for those who put them on. If you're weak-minded, you probably already buy into the guilt trip about how you're racist just because of your skin. If you're not weak-minded you just sit there trying to keep control of yourself so you don't let the fat cow up front know how much contempt you feel for her and everything she says, counting down the minutes until the shit-show ends and you can get back to your desk. And btw, anyone who says all whites are racist is a

  18. I think that CNN has become just as bad as FOX. We can blame both networks all we want, but the very sad part is that since they are corporate media, they very clearly are operating on a profit motive and little more. FOX News is #1 in cable news ratings, and CNN got a significant jump in ratings throughout 2016 because of their almost 24/7 Trump coverage, and they doubled-down on that post-election on the anti-Trump op-ed stuff for the sake of ratings. The point is, if CNN and FOX doing this results in higher ratings, we have nobody to blame but ourselves. If people were so disgusted

  19. I think you missed the whole part about CNN pretending to interview someone, while in reality that person has already been told exactly what to say by CNNers. This is right in line with the little black lady who got a chance to "speak" at Biden's presser, only when she got to the mic she basically said "I'm not going to read the script you guys gave me" lol. And it's also in line with Donna Brazille spoon-feeding debate questions to Hillary before she went on the stage with Donald Trump. CNN is pure shit, and their viewers are total idiots.

  23. Any thoughts as to why the media sat on this story for around two years? Why didn't they publish this story right after it happened? Were they saving it in the hopes of dropping a bombshell during the next election? It's no wonder most people have a low opinion of journalists.

  24. Did you see the part where John Bolton has come out and said, "No, the president did not say those things in France?" He's the only eyewitness who has come forward and said something, and it's in Trump's defence. Outstanding, dramatic theatre. Riveting, ain't it? So yet another accusation that doesn't stick to the Donald. It doesn't help that the news, mainstream news here, is exposed as having a lying agenda. It must be frustrating for people who truly want there to be something. Please do let me know when you find anything important... anything at all.

  25. Indeed...the late Sen John McCain was not without sin when it comes to such things. As for being a "loser" (a common NYC "insult"), Trump is correct....Senator John McCain lost to Senator Barack Obama in the 2008 election. (Donald Trump defeated Hillary Clinton in 2016.)

  27. Okay, I just watched an interview with Dr. Peter Lin on Power and Politics, and he agrees with you. If we continue to wash our hands, keep two metres apart, and wear masks and/or shields, we should be able to prevent another lockdown. I need to borrow a ladder to climb down off my high horse.

Where is our PM voice in this entire issue, instead we have a small but brief explanation by the Minster DND as he should after all he did contribute to the Afghanistan mission.. i guess i was expecting a stronger response... Instead Retire Gen Hillier stepped up to defend soldiers honor... not afraid to tell it as it is.. I get the whole fact politicians have to treat each other with kid gloves and double speak... so not to offend anyone..... But one would think that our PM would atleast say something ....

  34. You should be able to appreciate that ideas are hardly the same thing as ideology - in spite of the etymology. I have a fair bit of experience with people who have entered academia to pursue academic excellence and expand the base of knowledge and end up running away from the extreme leftist political environment that destroys any academic ethics that might be trying to survive. This is hardly a new thing. My wife encountered ultra-racist academics over 40 years ago in a faculty of education where aboriginal students were given a pass on the academic requirements for both entry and grad

  35. It will be remembered as the start of the paradigm shift from capitalism to network society. The big scarcity isn't capital anymore, it's attention. Attention can't be artificially inflated beyond what can be achieved with some multitasking. Whoever grabs the most attention controls the world. Those who think the social medias are for free and willingly give it their attention without compensation are the new underclass, the consumertariat. They only consume information and products placed before them by the algorithms. At the top we have the netocrats. The people who have the attent

  38. Yes, but I think Navarro's comments have an even more narrow context for Trump administration policies and rhetoric specifically directed at trade and different nation state interests. Early on, Canada's Operation Apollo (Nov 2001) & Anaconda were pitched as the alternative and proper contribution compared to the invasion of Iraq (war of aggression). So it was certainly politicized with domestic spin to garner support. I am not surprised that Trudeau would not respond to Navarro's reported comments, as he has been burned several times in the past trying to play Trump's low-ball gam

  39. There are no economic wizards in that party. They are economically illiterate too. Again, there is no magic point where people go from no having no response to CO2 emission taxes to suddenly having a large response to CO2 emission taxes. There are a variety of ways to reduce emissions (using a more fuel efficient vehicle, driving less, using public transport, insulating your home, eating less meat, etc.) and people respond to prices. The fact that taxes on CO2 emissions leads to a reduction in CO2 emissions has been confirmed empirically by various econometric studies. They are

At this moment, I am trying to figure out how MLAs communicate between themselves. I presume this is via "Dear Colleague" letters. But, I am not certain if there is a particular format, and as to whether there are rules of decorum regarding such. Does anyone have any information they can share regarding this? 2.

  41. Long time lurker, posting first time as driven by my need to address a perceived problem with the narrative. Am I expected to believe that any data regarding infection rates or deaths is somehow sacrosanct; immune to the laws of probability and margin of error? Seems to me we have no hard empirical evidence of rates of infection .. Population testing samples are quite small, and seemingly the basis for some creative extrapolative modelling. Modelling that to this date has been proven to be absolutely jaw-droppingly wrong. We have what, a 10% tested population ? With a vi

  42. O’Toole starts with some pluses. His bio is much closer to that of ordinary Canadians than Trudeau’s and even features military service. He’s certainly no right-wing firebrand and his calm style should not spook the floating voters the party needs. In addition, he’s got the Ontario connections where the battle may be lost and won. One challenge will be keeping the social conservatives happy and quiet.

  44. 1. I concur. 2. Is your point that it's not a problem or that it is ? I can't tell. 3. This is ridiculous hyperbole. I can't take you seriously when you try to equate a contemporary democratic government with Big Brother. It's just shrill hysteria, whether or not you think that the response to Covid is out-of-scale.
