    Pale ales? The work of the devil...
  2. Former anti-cannabis politicians cashing in. A few years go they incarcerated people for it, now they ARE the drug dealers.

      Wasnt Doug Ford always a drug dealer? No hypocrisy there, I guess.

    But no one has altered yours, or any other persons posts here. The main point is that all "problems", whether real or imaginary should be dealt with per forum rules, not by cluttering up threads.
  4. What's with the sudden anti-cannabis crusade on CBC? Little late now. Someone should tell them, it's like closing the barn doors after the horse is gone out.

    You know what you're supposed to do when you "have a problem", right?

    Ha, I already called it long ago.
  7. Ontario government to exempt Sikhs from wearing a helmet while riding a motorcycle.

    I'm sorry, but I don't understand how a law can be applied differently based on one's religion. Secular law is for all people. So is there actually law anymore?

      Some religious accommodation is fine, and some isn't.  And some is ridiculous.  This falls in the latter category.  There is no human right to ride a bike.

      The solution should have been to offer a helmet exemption to anyone who applies for it, but they have to pay an extra fee and their insurance will go sky high. That to me is acceptable.

  8. Sounds very interesting, and the book looks like it'll make a great Christmas present for Dad. I think Harper spoke very boldly, he said a few surprising things there. But hats off to him for being honest. After seeing that I think, man, I wish we could re-elect him as Prime Minister! Some of the things he said about populism are exactly what I said, further up in this thread. Harper implies that if the Right fails in its quest to reform international trade, the backlash from the left will plunge us into dystopian animal farm. The future of democracy, and indeed, civil society in the West, is all up to us now guys.
  9. Hillary Clinton's security clearance has been withdrawn, at her request? What?

      Weird - but then  it's the Clintons, wonder what they are up to

    2. OftenWrong


      Here's what it says on Washington Times:

      Hillary Clinton has given up her security clearance in the wake of the scandal over her handling of secret information on her email server, the Senate Judiciary Committee revealed Friday.

    Meet the new report

    Obviously we're not going to change anything, I think that much should be clear now. So, may as well party on!

    Agreed. Message to chicken littles: sky not falling.
  12. Politics pervading through all aspects of normal daily life, as in theatre, marketing, sports, is a form of totalitarianism.

    The article you linked to is ridiculous, and now that you were called out on the stupidity of Hitler comparisons, you are backpedalling on your own claims. Well that's progress I suppose. The whole thread is designed as an inflammatory, joke. What's funnier is those who took it seriously!

    People should work for their living, yes. Right wingers and their families work hard, so that left wingers can sit under a bridge and smoke dope all day, then whine about the need for a "living wage."
