  1. The U.S. has certainly seen this before, but it has never had the media bandwidth to amplify and fight the ideology battles on such a scale down to the individual level. Partisanship has been democratized with technology that is far more efficient and penetrating than plodding letters to the editor. There are no more barriers to media entry, and the more partisan and inflammatory, the better to drive clicks and responses that drive even more views and clicks. Hard, objective news has become passe and underfunded because the old revenue model is broken.

  2. What concerns me is the increasing lack of tolerance towards the opposing side. That Twitter, Facebook and big tech are suppressing conservative support of a sitting president I’ve just never seen before. Wordpress just told a conservative group that they have a limited amount of time to find another provider because their views don’t line up with Wordpress. YouTube takes down videos of people talking about the election with a conservative viewpoint. A great deal of pressure was brought to bear on the Trump legal team and as a result some of his lawyers have resigned. Even the wo

  4. And if "every single state which administers it, Republican and Democrat, says there's no evidence of widespread fraud" what was this about then: 10 state AGs file brief supporting challenge to Pennsylvania mail ballot deadline At least 10 states seem to think there might be evidence of fraud in at least Pennsylvania. As to this: "the federal government's own election monitoring agency says there's no evidence of any fraud..." That's not correct either. One guy, Chris Krebs said "There is no evidence that any voting system deleted or lost votes, changed votes, or was in any

  5. You know what deranged is? When there's an election, and every single state which administers it, Republican and Democrat, says there's no evidence of widespread fraud. When the federal government's own election monitoring agency says there's no evidence of any fraud. When your own party fails to produce any evidence of fraud in dozens of courts. And yet you're still utterly convinced there was widespread fraud. Because a lifelong con man and snake oil salesman who even his supporters admit lies all the time tells you there was.

  7. Im sure you are right. People are indeed wearing them, yet the virus prevails. I suspect the truth of the matter is that people trust the masks and it gives them a false sense of security. Absolutely false, for any paper or cloth masks. Likewise physical distancing does not work in the store lineups, because when you stand on the X right in the same location where the previous person was, you are breathing in their air. It now matters how long you wait before advancing, how long they were standing there before you, and ventilation. Therefor be advised. If you can smell her perf

  8. The Maritimes had a shaky start with our Syrian/ Asian immigrants/ refugees, and there was problems on all sides, problems with the language, some refusing, and most of the teachers were women which created another problem that may have reached the main stream media. We rarely have immigrants here, until a few years ago, so to counter problems that big cities have already solved was a huge learning curve for both sides here...yes there was problems on both sides with racism and there still is a few hardcore cases on both sides. Religion was one , finding them a space to get set up was on

Instead, they did what they did with the Apollo program...develop and test all at the same time...normally a bit dangerous...but these are dangerous times...right? These are dangerous times.........

  14. Intolerance comes from things like media corruption here. I don't mean to single out USA today because WashPo, CNN, NYT and all the other fake news outlets posted similar disinformation on their various platforms. I'm just not rounding up all the links. Those people know that there's a certain percentage of people who lack the reading comprehension to make sense of what they're looking at, some are ignorant enough to just believe it without checking into it, and there are people who are happy to just lie right along with them just to smear someone that they don't like.

  16. What exactly did she do? Sulking and claiming she actually won for years afterward and giving silent assent to the rioting, looting and attacks that occurred months afterwards and caused billions of $ damage. And during her campaign she helped spread the fraudulent Steele Dossier that was never backed up by a single source. And she recently was still claiming she won.

  17. One of my closest friends is a computer geek who works in ag. As the lead designer, he was isolated about 10 years ago for nearly 2 years to do a complete re-design of their automated feed blending systems (customized by ROP records - record of performance - so each area, pen, or even single animal could be fed a particular quantity and quality as needed). He headed out at the end to their first international high tech business exhibition, where they were going to introduce their new feed management software as a presenter on day 2. On day 1 he was approached more than once and proposition

  18. I don't care if Biden has great intelligence, judgement and strong morals, wisdom and knowledge, if he works to further advance the leftist progressive agenda. Quite sure the first thing he will do is reinstate the mandatory federal worker sensitivity training program, and also in elementary schools titled "Why you should hate your country" or something. Trump showed that the answer to China is to start building and making our own crap on this side of the pond again. I think it's a wise move for several reasons, not the least of which is better military and defence readiness... again

  21. Most Americans, including myself, do not hate Canada. If anything, we are guilty of being quite indifferent towards Canada without a complete understanding of how the national relationships have evolved over time. It is far more interesting to hear a Canadian (i.e. this YouTube video) explain the evolution of Canadian nationalism from a very Canadian perspective, without the tactical poop flinging across the border for fun and games. Canada's shift from right-wing to left-wing nationalism is fascinating and consistent with the changing domestic and foreign circumstances it has en

  22. Well, Canadians (and Americans) do find accommodation at the personal and practical level across millions of lives, but the aggregate nationalist identity still demands a purposeful separation and rejection to exist. This is not just a Canadian attribute, but Canada's history made it much more likely and enduring, and even persists domestically with Quebec. The Americans initially defined their national identity as fiercely not British, but this gave way to an American nationalism that was no longer challenged or threatened by a declining British Empire, with the United States creating

  25. So you are okay with people who cheered the 911 attack, or other attacks, who were, one way or another effected by West's attack on their country and people. Obviously that is ridiculous. I have no time for idiots who whine about and get so angry about cartoons. Then you have some fxckhead who are willing to kill someone because of it... damn... Please fxck off. People are easily insulted and are looking for excuses to feel insulted. I'm going to stop talking about this topic. We're derailing the subject. Sort of.

  28. And President Trump had a major news conference this morning. He says they’ve got witnesses. The MSM doesn’t believe it(I suggest this would be a good time to start looking for other news sources because the truth is starting to come out), but at the same time wants names. Yeah, the names should be released so antifa thugs can hunt them down and threaten their families. I’m at work so can’t give any links, etc. Way to go Betsy.

  32. i'll guarantee I've spoken with more recent new immigrants than anyone else on this forum. They speak english surprisingly well, especially Indian students coming here to study, they push English really hard in India, most who come off the plane are fluent. The ones without english these days are typically refugees, understandably, and the few who come under the parent program (typically aged 60+). The large majority of immigrants to Canada are also fairly young, i'd say typically under 35. The immigration program used to allow people to sponsor anyone in their family, like siblin

  39. It does. It makes a lot of sense. The Austrians banned Nazi activity because of their history and the potential for future violence from Nazis if they were allowed to regroup after the war. Now they are talking about (it's not done yet, so we'll see) banning Islamic extremism because of their history and the potential for future violence from Muslims if they were allowed to continue without any kind of restriction. I'm sure if they perceive any other political/religious threat to be worthy of legal restraint they will act on those too. (I should add, I am against any form of s

  40. It's a stunning example of cognitive dissonance that only in the States that Trump lost have any questionable activities occurred according to the Trump Cult. Past examples demonstrate that Republicans are just as likely to 'cheat' as Democrats. Perhaps, since voting irregularities are so incredibly widespread, Democrats need to start demanding recounts and delays in the States Trump won. I mean, why not? If there's a problem, there's a problem. If there's only a problem where Trump lost, that's just stupid.

  41. I’d prefer a new day to celebrate the sacrifice of our veterans that lacked the symbolism of WWI, that absurd, amoral clash of European empires. When I think of Flanders fields, poppies and all that, these lines written by Wilfred Owen, a soldier killed just seven days before November 11, 1918, come to mind: Dulce et Decorum Est Bent double, like old beggars under sacks, Knock-kneed, coughing like hags, we cursed through sludge, Till on the haunting flares we turned our backs, And towards our distant rest began to trudge.

  42. That's one way of looking at it. Kind of shrill, hateful, and reeking of desperation if you ask me. But you have an opinion, good for you. I'm not sure if it's yours or one that's been planted in a gullible mind by fake news but it's an opinion. Good for you. I prefer the one below. Somebody took the Rudyard Kipling poem "If" and matched it up with Trump. Your mind wipe won't let you watch it so I'll just tell you - The poem fits the reality like a glove. As to your insisting on calling the open minded a cult, again, that's just projection.

  43. Your opinions can be agreed with or disagreed with, depending on the views of those you are discussing them with. You have no right to have them agreed with. What you have is the right to have them, and live your life according to them. What you don't have is the right to dictate to anyone else based on them. (Or rather, shouldn't have) I agree all groups should be treated the same.

If we make claims to be a "nation" and have a "culture" and live in a "society" then, one would expect certain conditions to be met: Definitions: Nation - A nation is a stable community of people formed on the basis of a common language, territory, history, ethnicity, or psychological make-up manifested in a common culture. - in other words we are not a nation Culture - the customs, arts, social institutions, and achievements of a particular nation, people, or other social group. - in

Watched a good show about WW1 the other day, and it made me think of how it went wrong. Europe, the Habsburgs, the Tsar. The Archduke and his wife. Treachery and savagery of the Bolsheviks, and of Rasputin. Yes, its all a rich tapestry...
