  1. While I don't agree with the anti-vaxers and the anti-Covid crowd, I still believe Canadians have freedom of speech. This guy Chris Sky has just been put on the no-fly list for being an anti-vaxer, anti-Covid protestor/speaker for exercising his right to freedom speech. The government appears to be shutting him down and preventing him from travel so he cannot go to protest rallies and speak. This while a convicted terrorist, who killed someone when he was fighting for al Qaida in Afghanistan, received 10.5 million dollars and an apology, is not on the no fly list and is free to fly. This is

  2. This is interesting in that Boehner was an arch conservative Republican speaker of the house and an arch-enemy of the Democrats. Yet here he is explicitly blaming the conservative media for shifting the ground under American conservative politics and elevating a bunch of screwballs to a level of importance they'd never have previously reached. "Besides the homegrown 'talent' at Fox, with their choice of guests they were making people who used to be fringe characters into powerful media stars. One of the first prototypes out of their laboratory was a woman named Michele Bachmann," Boehne

  3. We're a hair's breadth from being a communist country. The government is no longer our friend and it no longer works for us. We no longer have a free press, freedom of religion, or freedom of speech and the judicial system is run straight from the PMO.

  10. Below is a link to an article about Faisal Hussein, the Danforth shooter. His shooting sprees was touted as a gun control issue instead of an islamic terrorism issue. https://thenationaltelegraph.com/national/2mye9dp7si9cw0sutyzwibzgbkctcm?fbclid=IwAR1vWDwPnPOvfs4iO3iAGu5qL00lQ2mumxftqLGgX20NKj-fDa8wiKd1A4Q Our government and media aren't doing their part to keep Canadians safe. Their attack on law-abiding citizens is pathetic.

  13. Japan's war-crimes were at par with the Nazis on some levels. The big threat in the Pacific theater was that if China fell it would free-up the massive Japanese army there for other purposes. Japan's weak spot was its transport system. It was considered a dishonor to be sent to guard convoys in the IJN...so ASW methods were sloppy and half hearted at best. US submarines quickly became the best on the planet once they figured out their torpedo issues...so the Japanese transports, oilers, tankers, etc, sank in great droves. Never to be replaced...

  14. As far as Japanese determination, I might remind folks that it was called "Bloody Attu" when it came to "just the Aleutians." https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Battle_of_Attu And of course...Dutch Harbor...which was another 'classic' Japanese hit and run with carriers. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Battle_of_Dutch_Harbor It's why Japan was a threat....they could project power in ways the Germans only could hope for.

  15. Canada handled the Germans somewhat differently of course. The majority were simply under surveillance. But that doesn't mean none were held in camps and such. The UK on the other hand ruthlessly arrested Germans and sent them to camps on the Isle of Man. Over 30,000. Russia...well you can guess what ol' Stalin did to the Volga Germans living in the USSR.

  18. This is communism at its essence: entitled bureaucrats raking public funds producing mediocre or plain disastrous results. And notice that the root cause is exactly the same, regardless of the ideological label: near-complete isolation and detachment from the reality and any responsibility for the result. And no, McCarthyism would not fix it. Only active, engaged and smart citizens could. Those for example who wouldn't just silently swallow "travel from Wuhan, no problem" but demand and obtain all necessary explanations because it's about them, their country and their future.

  22. You have to teach something. I guess judgement calls have to be made. American schooling seems to do a lot more patriotic propaganda. There's value to teaching historical accomplishments but it should be factual. If people know about their country, good and bad, they're probably going to feel more connected to it anyways. The point you show is that this is all easier said than done.

  23. I think that the lockdowns would not have had to be so extended and repeated if he had handled the pandemic better. And I think we wasted money by spraying it around with firehoses, spending more than any other nation. No. All are NOT losers. Asia has come through this fine. There are way more deaths in Canada than in Australia, New Zealand, Japan, South Korea, Vietnam, Thailand, Indonesia, Malaysia, Singapore and Taiwan COMBINED. And yes, I would have handled it better. And I can say that without hindsight. Back in January of last year I was paying attention to China. I ordered a

  24. He didn't handle the pandemic. He ignored it and treated it as a PR issue until cities were closing down. Then his government belatedly started ordering PPE gear while saying no one should wear masks and that closing the border would be 'racist'. His government was against testing at the airports and never supervised or policed the quarantine for those coming in. That caused us to be flooded with the variants which are killing people and shutting down cities now. What you mean is he gave you money.

They even funded mayors to pressure their police chiefs to look the other way. A little old payola, here let me grease that for you. It's the only thing that makes sense.

And even if you did, Chinese parts are now more integrated into global supply chains and products than anything Canada could fathom to boycott anyway. Frankly, it was easier to get Canadians to hate Trump (and his base) than the Chinese government....very ironic since it was Trump that challenged China while the peanut gallery did mostly nothing but business as usual, including Canada. Economics trumps virtue...as al

  28. Yep. I liked how big tech and the mainstream media all banded together to silence the 3rd largest newspaper in the country because they ran a story that was negative to Joe Biden. They all called it disinformation and censored it two weeks before the election. Then after the election was over admitted that they were wrong and the story wasn’t Russian disinformation. I also liked how states violated their election laws to allow late voting, unverified signatures, and insecure absentee ballots.

They have the ability to convert a forest with all its inhabitants - tigers, peacocks, monkeys and all the rest into.....BitCoins (imaginary) and landfills (non-imaginary) garbage. What needs to be rethought is the Capitalist Model based on constant expansion and population growth.

  33. You obviously have a very superficial view of Trudeau and have not been paying attention to what is going on. Trudeau prorogued Parliament last summer right in the middle of the introduction of new laws to provide pandemic aid to Canadians, preventing parliamentarians from making amendments and improvements to the different aid packages. Trudeau used prorogation to hide the WE Charity scandal and take it off the agenda. Your claiming Trudeau saved Canadians with aid proves you don't understand how government works. What makes you think the other parties would not have provided the same ai

  35. The LPC has bought and paid for the Canadian media with well over $2 Bn of our grandchildren's money, so the idiot-in-chief thinks he can bully ANY new media with impunity...and he can. Mostly because we are so stupid we fit the LPC mold and allow it with typical ignorance and complacency. Going back to Zeiteists post: we now have several generations who think a disaster is going from 3 chickens in the pot to two. Soft would be an understatement in the extreme.

  36. I have been wondering why guys like Chrétien and Trudeau could have such success in elections, while they are the most stupid politiciens ever. The stupidity of Trudeau is off the chart, yet he managed to win again and could probably win the next one. Your take is that, people are stupid... it's defendable point. But I have been thinking more than once and eventually, my observations lead me to a different angle. I think that, an explanation could be that the people elected them because they see them as a smaller treat than smarter people having opposite values or political positions. Th

  38. Those verses you quoted to try to support the argument that a country must take the rest of the world in and sacrifice their own country do not support that at all. The verses have absolutely nothing to do with the country's immigration system or policies. The verses are speaking to individual believer's and on how they treat other individuals, not some kind global Communism or Socialism. You are pulling verses out of context to try to support your anti nation, anti border twisted ideas. Every country in the world has borders and an immigration system whereby any would-be immigrants m

You ignore the fact every government we have had has had accusations of unethical or corrupt behavior. The Liberals probably had the biggest scandal in decades when they ran the Sponsorship Scandal for years in the 1990s and early 2000s until it was exposed and all the witnesses told the gruesome details in the Gomery Commission (public enquiry) that went on for weeks and some people went to jail. Taxpayers never got their money back. They gave away millions of dollars of

No one who has at least 1/2 an ounce of brain cells in their head can be stupid enough to believe that conspiracies do not exist. Our dear Trudeau comrade leader of Canada and his old comrade daddy Trudeau have been conspiring to destroy Canada for decades now. Believe in that conspiracy or not. Who gives a chit what you think.

Hannity and Carlson's commentary was accurate and proved to be true, the disinformation, slander and vitriol of the other 4 is repugnant from outer space.

  48. It's too bad that commentators in general aren't taken with a grain of salt and taken as an opportunity to check the facts behind the opinions and or apply common sense. Even, (some would say especially) with commentators on social media. I assume we all know this is social media. As to Tucker I said it after Rush died and now I'll say it again. All the left-wing knives will be turned on Tucker now. The judge made a rational decision, the conclusion haters on the left would like you to draw from it however, is irrational in that it ignores context.

  49. This country isn't fixable. We're too far down the rabbit hole. Divided along regional, economic, and racial lines. Divided as never before. There isn't any leader of any stripe that can fix what has happened to Canada. The populace is politically lazy and stupid. The likes of a Trudeau can flash their hair or socks and the stupids think they have a leader. We are a sad joke, an unfunny joke.
