  1. Exactly because no one has conceptually any authority above the great leader. Under communism that leader is totally unencumbered by any sort of written moral code, and is free to do whatever they will. Thinking of you, Justin...

  2. I personally, don’t think it would be considered insanity. I do understand how most straight people would see this as something insane. People will do as they please regardless of what society says. Why does it matter to people what others decide to do with their bodies? Shouldn’t we just be happy that they’re happy and comfortable in their own skin?

  7. I have been wearing a mask in public (and limiting my trips) since March 2020 when this whole thing went down. I’m not sure how being considerate to others for the common good is now being mocked by some who are calling it “living in fear” or that I am brainwashed, but it needs to stop.... When I wear a mask over my nose and mouth in public and in the stores/Supermarkets/Pharmacies/Offices - I want you to know the following: * I'm educated enough to know that I could be asymptomatic and still give you the virus. *No, I don't "live in fear" of the virus; I just want to be pa

  8. Well, I had some hope for him - although I was always concerned about the support of the social conservatives given how fanatical they are about disenfranchising anyone who doesn't fit their mould of a proper human being. But still, I didn't want to believe everything I heard on the media about how O'Toole hated gays, yada yada yada. But then he started talking about how he'd immediately start removing the federal benefits provided to support people through Covid-19, leaving it all to the Provinces - dumb, imo. He decided Alberta needed 'special' treatment to continue their ravaging o

  10. McDonald's doesn't force parents to bring their children to their restaurants, it's a choice, parents have free will. There were many sugary cereals I wanted as a kid that my mom would rarely buy me. McDonald's should be required to make their nutrition info available. But you can't blame them when virtually any parent knows McD's isn't healthy food anyways. Believe it or not, parents can say no to their children.

  12. Just looked up tuition fees for UBC. An applied science student pays around 7K. An international student pays 38K. International students are subsidizing Canadian students so the question is, how much more are you willing to pay in taxes not to have international students?

  13. Trump is a buffoon, pure and simple! And that's why all of the nice, rich and educated Republicans have started trying to form groups like the Lincoln Project, to try to win back some of those billionaires who had always considered the GOP to be their political home before the Donald barged in and started saying the quiet parts out loud! That btw, is how he earned the loyalties of his base, who have been losing economically and wanted straight talk instead of the same old warmed over Reagan BS! Even those of us who consider the Donald to be a loathesome creature still have admiration fo

  14. President Trump will never go to jail. My prediction. My other predictions: Carter would win re-election against Reagan Secretary Clinton would win in 2016 President Trump would win re-election in 2020 I did put money on Cassius Clay to beat Sonny Liston. 10-1 odds too. 1 out of 4 ain't good.

  22. And yet, so many believed that God arranged Trump's ascendancy to President of the US. But religious people are neither logical nor consistent: if they like the leader, it'd because God placed them there; if they don't, it's because people voted them in, and God will fix it by-and-by.

  23. Well, in one sense at least I can see how it could work. If God is the evolution and evolution led herds of great apes to worship and silently obey their alpha-leaders then yeah all makes sense. Wonder how did it sound in the ancestral great-apean some 10 millions years back. Not for nothing we're an intelligent species!

  24. Trump is more likely to drop dead and be buried at one of his golf courses than to be convicted and sent off to prison......for anything! If his enemies have anything good, what's been stopping them for the last 5, 10 or more years? Except that they are also dirty and afraid Trump will take them down with him if they make the move.

  30. One of the characteristics of Marxist dictatorships is the people (or enough of them) worship the leader as if he is a god. This is the way it works in Communist dictatorships like N. Korea, China, and Russia, even though they are not strictly Communist in the sense of equality. There is a chain of hierarchy in the power structure. What it takes to set up that kind of authoritarian system is a leader who has a certain charisma that appeals to the mindless drones. That's it. From then on, the leader becomes a kind of god, especially to those who do not believe in the God of the Bible. The

  40. No offence, but my knowledge of the political spectrum runs much deeper than current MSM or Marx and Engels. I was a member of the Liberal Party of Canada in the Chrétien days when they were far more fiscally responsible and unafraid to stand up for independent Canadian public policy. The current Liberals have taken much of the NDP platform to get more votes and they are scared of China and the US. They’re an irresponsible overspending party that is beholden to special interests. I guess they’re claiming to be feminist, but that’s mostly an inauthentic rhetorical device. Also I’m not an ide

  41. Indeed...the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers has executed countless projects in that region of the Mississippi delta for generations trying to control the river, with mixed success and much environmental "modification". The Corps is being sued right now for the Yazoo Pumps flood control fiasco. This is one of the worst possible examples to be a poster child for "climate change".

  42. And the Mississippi...it has changed greatly over historical time. The two Civil War forts in Louisiana on the river are good examples. Ft Jackson & Ft St Philips... One is still pristine (Jackson) while the other has been slowly eroded by shifting banks (St Philips)...last used as a hippy colony, I believe. Now the state CW preservation society is trying to save what is left...difficult as it is privately owned. They're right across the river from each other.

  44. In a less corrupt society Project Veritas would get some kind of journalism award for exposing something like this, but in 2021 they get excommunicated from social media and half of the country is stupid enough to celebrate it. I'm not exaggerating at all when I say that I HATE leftists. I've got a cousin that posts leftist drivel on FB and I won't even talk to her anymore. I have zero patience for really stupid people.

  46. BLM's regional chapters are all independent and don't answer to a central authority. But, the founders of the Movement For Black Lives: Patrice Cullours, Alecia Garza and..........I'm forgetting the third now, have had generous corporate and foundation grants dumped over them, and no doubt the donors intended for them to reign in radicals all across America and just run a more limited operation, doing protests and marches and maybe making up a DSA committee or something. But, with everything going on, nobody can control what's going to happen on the streets, and that makes a lot of busine

  47. No doubt...Canadian federal and provincial governments do not want to open that Pandora's box any further. Most of British Columbia was never ceded at all as "Crown land". Keeping the focus on the American narrative buys more time and insulates Canada from the much more dynamic factors at play in the U.S. Canada never had equivalent civil rights conflicts, but it has had labour unrest (riots). The impact of American culture is obvious...I recall watching one arrested Canadian demanding his nonexistent "Miranda rights", something he learned from watching so much American television

  48. Whatever we want to say about Trudeau, it's a fact that he came to power in 2015. Before him there were several governments, both Liberal and Conservative and nothing real was done to address this problem. The facts simply do not support the statement that this is a partisan problem. This is a Canadian problem and a global one as well. On another send off to the developing world; not that it smacks of hypocrisy, it also does not make much sense logically: if developed countries fail to make real and measurable progress, how likely it would be to happen in poorer countries laced with other

  49. I think the answer is a strong national identity. I made this video outlining it. But in essence a national identity would help political engagement/education by way of personalizing national matters. If you have time watch the video and critique my concepts (I'm always looking to strengthen/adapt them through scrutiny). Canada who? - YouTube
