    I'm not too thick. I just don't agree with you. Width doesn't enter into it. If someone were to add, "See! I told you all Muslims were bad and this person's action proves it", then you might have a point. As it is, you don't. You continue to tell yourself, and try to persuade others, that only those Muslims who are guilty of the worst acts of extremism should be targeted, and anyone who finds the notion of entire countries ruled by superstition reprehensible and abhorrent, or the notion that those countries and the people who live in them who subscribe to the barbarism that is religious rule are worthy subjects for criticism and contempt, have racism as their motive. But it's not because you're too thick. It's because you're wilfully blind. I, personally, am of the opinion that someone's thoughts are their own, and none of my business. That's why I oppose hate speech legislation. If someone opposes allowing people into the country who have reprehensible views, that's up to them. Would you be okay with allowing people into the country who have reprehensible views, or do you agree with me on the hate speech issue?

    That's more this week in Muslims than this week in Islam. As Churchill said: individual Muslims might have splendid qualities. It's the RELIGION that's the real issue. How dreadful are the curses which Mohammedanism lays on its votaries! Besides the fanatical frenzy, which is as dangerous in a man as hydrophobia in a dog, there is this fearful fatalistic apa­thy. The effects are apparent in many countries. Improvident habits, slovenly systems of agriculture, sluggish methods of commerce, and insecurity of property exist wherever the followers of the Prophet rule or live. A degraded sensualism deprives this life of its grace and refinement; the next of its dignity and sanctity. The fact that in Mohammedan law every woman must belong to some man as his absolute property—either as a child, a wife, or a concubine—must delay the final extinction of slavery until the faith of Islam has ceased to be a great power among men.

    Weird logic. An international treaty signed on by 196 countries is a 'foreign country dictating to us' ? https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Paris_Agreement Here's the list: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_parties_to_the_Paris_Agreement I feel like 90% of the debate around here is feeding information to people who are uninformed.

    Brexit is a marketing scheme that appeals to a tribal instinct to sell a false promise. Boris Johnson will soon realize that he can’t win a better Brexit deal than May did. Whiny parliamentarians won’t support a deal, nor will they accept a no-deal Brexit. It just makes Britain a laughing stock. Trump won’t come across either because the US has promised to support an open border in Ireland and they’re worried about upsetting the EU in trade negotiations. The bigger issue is China’s ascension and Russia’s inroads. Brexit is destabilizing for Western Europe, which is why Putin supports it. This is the time for unity and consolidation of power in the face of threats from the east, not the time for fragmentation. If Europe disintegrates, it will mean a return to paranoid nationalism. Germany will no longer be contained. It’s very stupid and unnecessary. Most well-informed Brits see this.

    And yet, Commonwealth nations remain united for whatever purpose that serves without the need for EU membership. Canada, Australia, United States, Brazil, India, and China have not sought to surrender sovereignty to a larger union, but still thrive nevertheless. The EU has some serious problems, particularly in the south...the soft/weak underbelly of Europe and gateway for economic migrants and refugees. Post world war deadbeat Germany now beats up on Greece for austerity and concessions. If Article 50 is not respected, then the EU treaty should fall for those who also want out to escape the drag of debt and cultural chaos.

    Are we getting hordes of Russian immigrants? No. We are getting hordes of Chinese immigrants and I'm a little leery of that since the Chinese have a history of resisting assimilation. But that might have been because they weren't welcomed in greater society. They do not, as far as I know, hold our own culture and values in contempt, nor regard us as morally defective because we do not think and worship as they do. They probably do actually think we're kind of lazy and that we don't put enough effort into raising our children properly, but I can live with that. Most of the Chinese put tremendous importance on education, and their kids generally go to university. That means getting out in the world and eventual integration. They do not expect their daughters to stay cloistered so as to pop out babies and mind them, nor do they appear determined to send their sons back home for a proper wife, nor wish our laws could be changed to suit their backward religious beliefs. The Indians are broken into multiple religions. I am somewhat leery about them, too, though they do tend to integrate better than the others. Sikhs have caused our worst ever terrorist incident and there is still far too much interest in violence in that community. They also can have backward values, though these seem based on culture not religion, so will eventually evaporate. Same for the Hindus, who, for the most part, seem far less religious than the other two groups. The Muslims seem to be addicted to the idea of being part of a world-wide community of Islam. Far too many would welcome the thought of a theocracy, esp a world-wide Muslim theocracy, or "caliphate", which makes them dangerously prone to seduction by extremists bent on using violence to further those goals.

    Canada's present leadership has already expressed its position on Europe and Brexit, and it does not favour the UK, also a very successful and progressive country: Trudeau is in the bag for continued globalization, open borders, and unlimited immigration/asylum, the very opposite of Brexit. It is very easy to get a "hate-on" for policies like that.

    The point here has nothing to do with the satellite and everything to do with President Trump/NASA continuing to cooperate with other nations in space. Stop inventing Trump bogeyman in endeavours where there are none. Russia, USA, EU, Japan, and Canada continue to work on projects....Trump or no Trump. (But I do think the proud Canadian nationalism is cute and to be encouraged, even if it takes Trump to do so. ) The Trump administration continues to fund and lead on LOP-G with international partners, along with ISS, James Webb Space Telescope, etc. Your contention above is without merit or foundation.

    Schiff has seen a lot of evidence that you have not seen, so I would take his word for it over yours. But why do you think Trump denied the evidence that Russia was trying to hack the election during his debate with Hillary, and blamed it instead on China or a fat guy in his basement? Why did so many people on his campaign team lie about their contacts with Russia? There is ample evidence of obstruction of justice. What were they obstructing? But regardless, again, you can't provide one example of the media reporting that Trump colluded, as you said they did. You only found one article reporting on Schiff's words (which BTW no one has proven to be false).

    We could do. We would probably be accused of racism again. I personally think the Chinese government are bunch of despotic tyrants, and anyone in China who agrees with their policies is worthy of the utmost disgust and contempt. If you think the fact that they don't get a thread of their own, on here, is a good reason not to bring attention to the barbarism of theocracies, and the mindless ignorance of those who support them, then start a thread. It would be better than saying lets all be quiet about the theocracies.

    He makes an excellent point that if you want to blind yourself, look the other way. But I have seen no evidence that Schiff is incorrect in his assessment. Mueller has stated clearly that he is hamstrung by Barr's refusal to prosecute a sitting president. But to the point, are you saying USA Today should have not reported on his remarks as they did here? Is that really your argument?

    BS eyeball. You have no clue what's going on. The Republicans said there was a crisis at the border months ago, and they were correct. As soon as they said it the Dems instantly took the opposite position. Get it? I've always known that. The border is underfunded six ways from Sunday, and inhumanity in the detention centers is one of many symptoms of that problem. That inhumanity is not a symptom of a racist government that's actively enlisting evil border guards who force people to drink from toilets. Get it? As long as the Dems are calling for more illegal immigration then the "inhumanity" at the border will always exist. The US could never be set up to properly deal with tens of thousands of illegal border crossings a month. But get this, it's so simple that every other human on earth understands it except for you: AOC IS LYING WHEN SHE SAYS THAT PEOPLE ARE BEING FORCED TO DRINK FROM TOILETS. ONLY REALLY REALLY STUPID BELIEVE THAT BORDER GUARDS FORCED WOMEN TO DRINK FROM TOILETS WITH A CONGRESSWOMAN STANDING RIGHT THERE. ON THE BRIGHT SIDE, YOU'RE PART OF A VERY EXCLUSIVE CLUB. I'm not upset that the Republicans used the word inhumanity. I'm explaining to you that what CATO said and what AOC said don't back each other up, at all. It seems like you will never get your brain around that. Shocker.

    Nobody cares about good news, regardless of who is making it. Unless it involves cats, for some reason.

    Bullshyte... just because you cannot live up to the challenge I raised you. Show us the good news this week in Islam. So far nothing... these stories have no weight. Perhaps because there is nothing, then? Is that the conclusion?

    Like dialamah, you're free to go to bat for this cult and desperately find some 'good news' coming from it...you know...stuff like Imams meet to denounce terrorism in Islam. Zero sum...but hey...better than blowing-up a church. Right?

    I love the tune, but I can't listen to whole song due to the last verse being so crap. It's not unintentional though. From Wiki: Suicide Is Painless is a song written by Johnny Mandel (music) and Michael Altman (lyrics). It was the theme song for both the movie and TV series M*A*S*H. Mike Altman was 14 years old when he wrote the song’s lyrics. Director Robert Altman had two stipulations about the song for Mandel: it had to be called "Suicide Is Painless" and it had to be the "stupidest song ever written". Altman attempted to write the lyrics himself, but upon finding it too difficult for his 45-year-old brain to write "stupid enough," he gave the task to his 14-year-old-son Michael, who wrote the lyrics in five minutes.

    Actually, Canada's Alouette 1 satellite was launched by the United States (Thor-Agena @ Vandenberg) after an invitation from NASA to participate. The U.S. continues international and commercial cooperation for many projects in space, with Canada being just one of the partner nations. So your entire premise is wrong for Trump/NASA now, and going forward.

    Please save it for 'this week in Hindu...' This thread is for blaming all Muslims, especially in Canada, for misdeeds on the other side of the world not Hindus.

    WHAT???? Jeffrey Epstein reportedly visited the White House several times while Bill Clinton was president https://www.businessinsider.com/report-jeffrey-epstein-visited-white-house-under-bill-clinton-2019-7 Trump barred Jeffrey Epstein from Mar-a-Lago over sex assault: court docs “Trump allegedly banned Epstein from his Maralago Club in West Palm Beach because Epstein sexually assaulted a girl at the club,” according to the papers, filed in the Sunshine State as part of an ongoing legal battle between Epstein and Bradley Edwards, who represented many of Epstein’s underage accusers in civil suits against him. The filing is dated April 2011, well before Trump ascended to the presidency. https://nypost.com/2019/07/09/trump-barred-jeffrey-epstein-from-mar-a-lago-over-sex-assault-court-docs/

    Boris Johnson makes lots of false promises. This is the man who started a false campaign about £350 million a week for NHS by luring british voters into Brexit and then quit his job as a foreign minister and left the May’s government in disarray. How quickly we forget... Now he claimed he could withhold the £39 billion divorce bill the British Government had agreed to pay to cover obligations the UK had committed to during membership. His whole speech is baseless and just on patriotic sentiments to win voters. Indeed he is a politician and a good entertainer but not a businessman like Trump, which is where this double partnership will fail.

    Actually, Trump has continued the U.S. tradition of cooperation in space with Russia, Japan, EU and commercial firms for the Lunar Orbiting Platform - Gateway (LOP-G). As usual, Canada will be tagging along for a piece of the action with another robot arm. So much contempt ! Canada would not even be a minor player in space were it not for the support and cooperation of current and previous U.S. administrations (NASA). There is so much "distrust", Canadians know more about NASA than their own CSA's past and present projects

    I doubt that. Nationalist leaders rarely work well together for obvious reasons and any deal would have to be approved by Congress. There are already rumblings there: https://www.irishtimes.com/news/politics/brexit-pelosi-warns-uk-not-to-jeopardise-belfast-agreement-1.3967768 I will leave it to conservatives to decide whether Trump is really one of their own.

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zZAoIDKMENE https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LHAeGNa3dzM https://www.pinterest.ca/kittytoes1/transgender-deception/ If you go on you tube everyone is transsexual including Paris Hilton, Cameron Diaz, Taylor Swift and Kiera Knightley and I slept with all of them. Could have fooled me although now that I think about it they all beat me arm wrestling and Paris did sort of smell like George Clooney's wife's who is also transsexual. Oy. Look everyone calm down. Leave Michael Harder alone. Seriously, yah its true its causing some practical issues in public facilities and yah we live now in a society that seems to be emphasizing the blurring of the distinction biologically between male and female gender. I mean you want to get paranoid about it-did we insist on using so much plastic knowing the plastic bottles had estrogen that would pollute the water we drink turning all us males into neuters and increasing breast cancer in women? Well? How far you want to go with whether Satan and/or the illuminati are doing this or whatever-I leave to you but Cher never had me fooled and neither did Jane Fonda.

    I again commend the moderator for protecting the integrity of this forum and doing a great job in shutting down the spambots for want of a better word. Every now and then he needs to be commended. Most times he has to tell us to shut up for other reasons. So he deserves a thank you on being quick to notice the attempt to pollute this board with fake posts.
