  1. Trump rocking it in India...no stupid costumes like you know who.

  2. Yes, but you’re a liberal. Excusing lawlessness comes naturally to you. Unless of course it’s lawlessness directed toward one of your pet issues or protected peoples. Regardless, lawlessness is lawlessness. There is no difference. When you give people permission to break the law, you get more of it. It’s a terrible precedent in a civil society. Perhaps you should be less concerned over the precedent of lawlessness set by leaders of other countries and be more concerned over the precedent of lawlessness you’re setting in you’re own country. But once a hypocrite always a hypocrite.

  3. Or perhaps they could do both. Focus on the present and the future! What a concept. Alas, I know I know, only China has the alarmists permission to pollute significantly over the next decade or two. Only China is allowed to pursue such mines. Only China is allowed to pursue rare earth materials etc. This from the sane mouth that pretends selling oil to China is a threat. God the hypocrisy!

  4. Yeah but then everyone is getting painted with the same brush. I think the consensus, hopefully, is that these blockades were a mistake, law enforcement has to remove them and it will, and anyone who tries to turn this into some kind of "colonial" attack on the oppressed is being utterly ridiculous. I think the majority of Indigenous know this too, so hopefully this is the end of the blockades. If, however, the minority unelected hereditary chiefs and their supporters ignore the approvals, laws, and will of the people, much more serious measures will have to take place, up to and including

  5. Meanwhile, out comes the 'traditional garb' just to add credence to the 'I'm special' claim... Meanwhile, anybody who knows these tribes also knows they had no borders...didn't live in certain regions as they were cursed...all feared the Haida as they were the coastal tribe's bitches. Oh...and you should see their houses. Did you think they live in 'traditional' native settlements? Think again...

  6. I want to clear something up, not all men are the same, the examples I gave come from most western societies, things change as you move across the continents, take the middle east for instance , there are some nations that have seen nothing but war for ever, here you'll see a whole different outlook on life and what it is worth, here you'll see killing is more common, entire generations have grown up with conflict, they have experienced more ways of death than we can imagine cutting a mans throat is no different than a goats. So people can be conditioned for killing...proof of that is NAZI Ge

  8. At one time most of the big oil and mining companies were pretty much contributing heavily to this so called global warming but those days are now long gone. Hello! Try opening up a mine or to try and produce oil in this country. There are so many rules and regulations and taxes in effect that there should be very little worry about more greenhouse gases going into the air and causing more of a rise in CO2 levels. After a mine is closed trees are planted on that now shut down mine. No doubt the same thing is done in the closure of some oil fields also. Canada comes nowhere near to what

  10. Every dollar that these illegal protests cost taxpayers needs to be subtracted from any funds First Nations groups receive from the federal and provincial governments. These costs need to be downloaded on to them, so that they realize there’s a price to pay.

  11. The big majority want it, only a minority don't want it but that has been coopted by radical eco protestors along with the Mohawks. Time to hurt these guys where it hurts, close their illegal pot shops and gummy bear dispemsaries, then start cutting off the money we give them.

  12. Lol. Yeah. Things change - so, don't be outraged when Canadians start taking matters into their own hands, and do the job for Trudeau! Because that's the inevitable outcome if Trudeau doesn't overcome his paralysis! You think people won't do anything if there is nothing to buy? If shelves are empty? What commodities available become over-priced? If people keep losing jobs? Businesses closing? Whatever positive outcome the new NAFTA brings, means squat! Yooooo-hooooo? VENEZUELA here we come!

  15. You live on the coast and know full well that the coastal tribes like the Haida and Nootka had ocean-going capabilities. That allowed them to develop culture like the Potlatch which allowed them to coordinate annual raiding into the interior....up those darn rivers and sounds....just like the Europeans.

  16. The Haida wouldn't let them. They had to constantly move in order to survive. Plus, we're not talking tens of thousands here. This was a subsistence existence...hundreds at best during GOOD times. Today they are centered around Prince George, but during the old times, that area was cursed as it flooded disastrously on a yearly basis. Tradition says don't pitch your tent there. Why, Grandfather?? Wait for it........

  17. I'm not Jewish. Nor do I have an opinion on the validity on certain Jewish claims to certain regions of the Middle East. But The Zionists BOUGHT their land from the Ottomans. Since most of you are no-doubt native challenged, these folks are called Carrier Indians (Dakelh in today-speak) as they were not allowed to bury their bones nor settle anywhere specific. Only the arrival of the Hudson Bay Company with the building of forts and trap lines did these people start to flourish as they were suddenly free to settle down without fear of constant Haida slave raids. Traditional lands? Tr

  25. I have no idea. They seem to want their sovereignty from hereditary rule. I certainly agree with that. They seem to have had the sovereignty to make agreements with the builders of the pipeline. I actually know someone who is quite involved in FN issues, and he says that at one point, all the FN bands along the route had agreements. Then the feds stepped in and sent it all to hell. Apparently they don't want the FN to have that kind of sovereignty. Heaven forbid!

  26. Basic disagreement here. The FN in BC want the pipeline. You don't want them to have the pipeline. We both have ulterior motives for wanting or not wanting the pipeline, along with our views of the FN side of the issue, but elected natives representing their bands want the pipeline, and they have reached many agreements in order to reap the benefits. You obviously can get your head around that. I wonder why you disagree with them. Unless you think birthright trumps democracy? If you do, then we'll never agree on the issue. The Chinese probably didn't bother to do anything to justi

  27. Anyone who participates in acts of civil disobedience must be prepared to face the consequences. Some are braver than others. Some causes are less stupid than others. The Chinese are barbaric bastards. We all know that. If you think that the arrest of someone trying to deny FN bands some economic independence is equivalent feel free to call the Canadians barbaric bastards too.

  28. It seems that way with some lefties. Civil disobedence is a damn fine thing, and must be tolerated until those on the wrong side of the law get their own way, as long as the issue is one I agree with. I wonder how long they would want the RCMP to wait for dialogue to take effect if those doing the disobeying were Catholics blockading an abortion clinic, or even ordinary concerned citizens blocking traffic in support of their idea of a good immigration policy. I say some lefties, because I would treat them all the same way. Give them fifteen minutes to make their point then arrest

  29. Riiight. More like dozens, or at most hundreds. I'm not worried. We saw just what kind of courage progressives had in Longueuil when the police showed up, or in Alberta when challenged by two rednecks in a truck. And calling for the police to arrest lawbreakers is not violent. It wasn't violent when the RCMP arrested lawbreakers in BC to clear the way for the pipeline, and it need not be violent in Ontario. I think you're simply assuming the natives there are violent savages and that the instant the police try to move them they'll grab their guns and go on the warpath. The planet is fi

There's probably some cephalopod there wondering the same thing. The right-wing ones probably ask something similar about virtue.

  32. We need a new form of Clarity Act to define those parameters. Those bands are NOT independent. If you can’t pay for your own services, you’re not independent. What’s more, there are tremendous demands for more representation, money, and services, yet there’s no taxation of reservation land or income to pay for any of it. Title, where warranted, is fine, but that’s not the same thing as independence. The term “nation to nation” when we talk about negotiations is misleading. These bands are not of equal stature to the country of Canada for many important reasons. It’s disingenuous to preten

  33. This is what the protests are really about which no one wants to speak about.. it's the elephant in the room. It's not about 'reconciliation' it's about giving the land 'back' to the Natives and living under their laws... is this what Trudeau wants or expects, and who will speak up and whop will fight for Canada and ALL Canadians. https://www.washingtonpost.com/opinions/2020/02/22/movement-end-canada/ The Wet’suwet’en chiefs contest the authority of Canadian law.

  34. Homo Sapiens have a primal drive to gratuitously kill unlike any other life form on the planet (except certain Chimpanzees). As well when we are in groups, neurological studies have shown being in a group has the same effect on our frontal lobe as drinking alcohol, it triggers chemicals that numb that part of the brain and make it easier to kill or become violent. This is a throwback to our past primal imperative to survive by hunting in packs which increased the likelihood of killing what was needed to eat to survive. So that group interaction developed into a way to better kill an obje

  35. Killing is part of nature, it within all of us, men and women, we have been killing each other for objects, or resources since we climbed down for the trees. In todays world or say within the last 2 to 300 years we have had to train people to kill, not just training to kill but training the mind to except it as normal.... because the act is not socially accepted, we have laws that prevent it...we are taught it is bad...Our brains are not conditioned to see bodies ripped open or torn apart. The militaries around the world spend bils trying to find better ways to condition their soldiers minds,

  37. It's a simple observation. The left are the one's flipping out and empowering the person they claim to hate, when the right flips out they are much less counter-productive than the TDS left. The media being non-stop TDS leftists is plain as day, and they are far more rabid than any Trump supporter I've ever met.

  38. Yeah well go tell it to past human rights activists and others who are responsible for the sense that civil disobedience is the correct way to change the course of intransigent governments who refuse to change with the times. Let me guess you don't have the slightest clue what I meant by that do you? Anyways I'm pretty certain the lawmakers who sent troops storming thru Tiananmen Square felt exactly as you do. So whose side were you on when that happened anyway and more to the point why?

  40. Men like to kill other men because of natural selection. If you have 20 men, where 10 men like killing other men and 10 men who don't like killing other men....the 10 men that like killing other men will kill the 10 men who don't like killing, That means the killer men will survive to procreate and pass along their genes to their male children that will also like to kill other men, while the 10 men that don't like to kill are dead and thus won't procreate and pass on their non-killer genes. Women don't have to like killing because their fathers, brothers, sons, and husbands do it for
