    Marcus your the typical Canadian I am always talking about, you love to point fingers at others, blaming them for things that are happening around the globe....but afraid to take any real positive action yourself...so your content with whining and bitching about the US or Israel....and you said I need a boggy man, to hook up my entire life ambitions to....with so many bitches , you must be unhappy with your station in life on this side of the fence, I just thought you would be much happier on their side of the fence...and save our ears from hearing that constant drone of I'm so unhappy....hence the offer of plane tickets, I heard Iran is nice this time of year....Hear is a news flash the general is nothing more than a terrorist….Irian's here in Canada have even said so...

    I am a fortunate person to be where I am in the world. I am happy that I have this platform for myself and my children. But I'm not going to blind myself to the b.s. we put others through in other parts of the world. Life is about progressing and improving as individuals and as a society. We need to continue to better ourselves and challenge those who want to milk the status quo that harms others in order to benefit themselves selfishly.

    I would love to spend some of my cash on furthering my education...but I have not found that magic pill that allows you to work and go to school at the same time, plus provide for my family as well...

    Reading a book doesn't have to cost money. Talking to someone who isn't in your circle doesn't have to cost money. 

    As a military man, do you not weep for the lives lost for pointless and disastrous wars created by these fucktards, who will never risk to sacrifice themselves, or their families in these wars?

     


  2. I have a theory as to why Trump decided to take out Soleimani:

    John Bolton will most likely testify in the hearings. He was pushed out and left on bad terms. John Bolton, a neo-con, has been pushing for 'regime change' in the middle-east for over 2 decades. Apparently, he was too much of a hawk for Trump and that's why he was pushed out. Perhaps, killing Soleimani was a way to quench Bolton's thirst for military force, in order to, perhaps, stop him from giving damaging testimony in the impeachment hearings.

    Lines have already been drawn in the sand Marcus, man up, pick a side, don't like the side your on, pack up your shit and move...

    Heh. You don't speak for all Canadians. Every Canadian has a voice and choice. You are free to be a good little peon who is told what to do and to give unconditional support for whatever his masters tells him to. That is your choice. However, you cannot tell me what to do. Feel free to pack up your shit and move, if you don't like that.

    it is that simple need a ticket send me your address and i'll send you one...This mad man is reasonable for killing thousands of Americans, and other NATO troops.  He was a terrorist scum bag,  he has paid for his crimes with his life....

    I'm fine where I am. Instead of using your money to buy tickets, why don't you spend that money in getting some education and understanding of world politics, other cultures and international law.

    "This mad man". Sure. You need a bogeyman and a team to cheerlead to function and make sense of the narrative that simplifies how the world works. I get it.

    Btw, you wouldn't be downplaying hostages if it was the other way around, and the United States had taken Iranian hostages.  You also have no problem with Iran sticking it's nose in other people's business, like in Lebanon, Iraq, Afghanistan, Syria, etc.  You got no problem at all with it.

    I have problems with it. 

    U.S. has military bases all around Iran and flies a drone into Iranian airspace and nothing. The drone gets shot down by the Iranians and OMG OMG!

    Saudi Arabia has done numerous terrorist attacks inside Iran and nothing from you. An Iranian backed group attacks the Saudi oil field and OMG OMG!

    The U.S. is in Iraq, Syria, Lebanon, Gulf States and nothing from you. Iran has groups in other countries, where they are mostly welcomed by the governments and OMG OMG!

    Your empty and superficial outrage is amusing.

    Except that hasn’t been the case.  They’ve been treated like pariahs since they started acting like it.  Basically when they took over the American embassy and held them hostage in 1979/80

    OMG! HOSTAGE TAKING SO SO BAD!

    That's a good boy. They tell you to be up in arms about a hostage taking from 40 years ago where no one was skilled, while  totally ignoring the hundreds of thousands of people who have been killed, maimed and forced into living in misery because of U.S. actions. Things like shooting down a passenger airplane. Or directly assisting Saddam to attack Iran and working with him to hit the Iranians with WMD. 

    Your ignorant outrage is comedic.

    We’re in a briefing vacuum at the moment. Senior Democrats have yet to be briefed and allies were taken by surprise. A speech by the President immediately after the event would have been the usual route to take. It’s hard to see how this will make Iraq more stable or America’s presence there more secure. 

    Maybe that's the point. A president at war has a better chance of a re-election.

    Of course I am aware of what went on against the native Indians in the past. But that was not the question I asked of you? Why are you not replying to my question but appear to be trying to avoid the question? Look, there is something you need to learn and know about here. "There is an old saying and it goes like this. "To the victor goes the spoils". One wins the war, the other one loses the war and the losers are subject to whatever the victor wants to do to them. That is how things work out in life. The victor does not hand back what they just won.  

    Your question:

    In your opinion, are the native Indians in Canada better off today thanks to the British/Europeans coming to Canada, and bringing them into the modern world of the time? 

    Moot point. Everyone's life today is better today than it was in the past. Gun powder may have been an advancement, but in many other aspects, I disagree that the European settlers brought many benefits to their lives. They brought the opposite.

    21 hours ago, taxme said:

    It was the British and some other European people who discovered North America and conquered it, and there is nothing that can be done about that now. When they came here, native Indians were not living all that great of life like they are living today thanks to those British/European discoverers of North America. And one thing the British/European people did when they discovered and conquered North America was to stop the native Indians from killing each other. You must be happy about that, right?  A saving grace for the native Indians. Peace at last.

    They weren't living great? According to who? 

    You are comparing their living conditions then, to today? Like life pauses for everyone? Life wasn't great for the European settlers compared to today. This is a ridiculous argument to make.

    If the founders of this country all left North America and gave it all back to the Indians tomorrow, do you not think that the Indians would not revert back to the good old days of doing harm to one another? The native Indians of today should be dam grateful that the British/European people came to North America. There were many good intentions meant by those founders to try and make life more livable for the native Indians of that day. They stopped the killings. They tried to educate the natives. 

    It sounds like that your understanding of the North Americans natives is really lacking. The John Wayne western movies don't really represent what their lives were like. You need to be educated in this regard.

    The problem with people like you today is that you refuse to try and forget about the past. It seems like the British/European people of today always need to be constantly reminded of what went on in the past by those founders way back when. I had nothing to do with it. Got it? Do you ever see me crying about what the Romans did to my ancestors when they invaded the British Isles? NOPE. It's all in the past and I am happy to leave it there. Keep the history part of it but do not use it as an excuse to try and make everyone feel like you have and still are the victim of some past historical event which the native Indians keep trying to do every day.   So, are you going to answer my question or not? The floor is yours. ;)

    Because what happened in the past continues to affect the people today. 

    It's like asking a person who was severely raped and abused as a child to get it together. You obviously have no understanding of what the European settlers did to the people and the generational effect it has on the people.

    I need to ask you this question. In your opinion, are the native Indians in Canada better off today thanks to the British/Europeans coming to Canada, and bringing them into the modern world of the time? Do you think that the native Indians in Canada today would want to go back to the good old days of living in tents with none of the modern conveniences that they enjoy today like running water, central heating, and electricity to run their TV's and appliances that they now use every day, and not to forget the toys that they drive and ride around in and on? Any comments on what I am asking you above? Just asking. :)

    Are you not aware of what the natives have gone through the last few centuries due to the European colonization? Everything from the killings, maiming, rape, diseases, land theft, residential schools and etc?

    Do not try to undermine or hide the truth by carefully chosen words (like corrupt or incompetence) for those regimes who hate Israel. They are Bloodthirsty and murderous governments in other places is the fact who shoot their own people in the back and there are plenty of videos about that too. So I am asking you again. What do you think these people would do to Israeli civilians if they occupy Israel when they shoot their own defenseless women and children and youth in the back for simply a protest or demonstration?

    I have no problem calling them bloodthirsty murderers as well. I just don't agree with excusing supporting Israel's blatant occupation and systematic theft of Palestinians' land and human rights violations because of the surrounding neighbours. Israel can defend itself from those outside forces without being total murderous asshole thugs towards the Palestinians.

    Cramer: Like or hate Trump, ‘these are the best numbers of our lives’ on jobs

    • CNBC’s Jim Cramer says no matter your view on President Trump there’s no denying we’re living in the best labor market in more than a generation.
    • “This is the best number I’ve ever seen in my life,” says Cramer, 64.
    • Zeroing in on the 3.5% unemployment rate in November, Cramer says, “Fifty years ago, that number was a curse. Now it’s a blessing."

      “This is the best number I’ve ever seen in my life,” Cramer said, zeroing in on the unemployment rate. “Fifty years ago, that number was a curse. Now it’s a blessing.” He added, “I don’t see inflation. I don’t see recession.”

      Cramer said the strong U.S. job market is going to allow America to win the trade war with China. “The president can walk away from the table with this number.”

    And probably a second term win. Especially if Biden wins the Democrat nomination.

    In the past several decades there has been hundreds of millions of more colored people being brought into Canada that the majority of white Canadians never asked for.

    The First Nations could say the same thing about the white people who moved to this land. 

    On 12/6/2019 at 12:34 PM, taxme said:

    Why would white people want to commit racial genocide against themselves and their own white people, and want to hand over their white homeland to a bunch of other colored people?

    As a white person, I am certain that you're in the minority. This is how the world has been working since the beginning of our time. Human migration is natural. Even the First Nations migrated to this land thousands of years ago, through the north and Alaska, when modern day Russia was connected to what is now Alaska. More recently, the Italians, the Irish and the Jews, Indians and the Chinese were subject to discrimination as the mostly British settlers didn't see them as the same as them. 

    Don't be afraid of the coloured people.

    Here in the lower mainland of BC, I am starting to see less and less white people around, and I am getting to see more and more non-white people around. The color of BC, and the rest of Canada, is truly starting to change color, and it does not look very promising for those people of the other color out there.

    It's normal for big urban centres to attract people from all over the world. Everywhere from London to Paris to Berlin to New York, to LA to San Fran, to Toronto to Vancouver. It's normal and it shouldn't be scary.

    You have two options:

    1) Embrace it and take the good from the other cultures. 

    2) Move to Maple Ridge

    It's for dam sure that our present day immigration policy is broken. And with Trudeau back at running the country once again, it can only get worse rather than get better for the people who were once the majority in this country.

    The Harper government had the exact same immigration policy as what Trudeau has now.

    But what the heck, you appear to be quite in favor of what is going on, eh? :unsure:

    I feel like you don't have real experience with others. You can't see beyond their colour and language. I hang out with people from a mix of ethnic groups. Our basic thoughts, desires and beliefs are very much the same. Beyond that, I learn and experience from their culture and I'm sure they from me. Not to mention that some of them, despite them being a different colour, are probably more "white" than some of my white friends. Because they have been here for many generations and have grown up in smaller towns before moving to Vancouver.

    Oh really? And what about the Arabs with hundreds of billions of dollars of easy oil money every year, and most advanced Russian and French military hardware and population of over half a billion could not defeat or even resist a nation of less than a few million. It is not the military hardware (or money) that counts it is the brain who drives it.

    Israel's actions against the Palestinians cannot be justified because of the incompetent and corrupt governments in other places. Neither the fact that Israel would not be able to do what it's doing to the Palestinians without the monetary and political support of the U.S., Canada and Europe.

    You are either ignorant about what is happening or you are confused about the principal you tell others you claim to have. I don't understand how you can sit there and (rightfully) criticize the European governments for not taking a principled stance against the Iranian government but then go and defend the Israeli government and their policies towards the Palestinians. The information is out there. The reports, the videos and the facts are right there for you to see. I do wonder about your double standards.

    Australia kicks Canada's ass, because it is not right beside America.   Canada's attachment to America is what keeps Canada from ever progressing.

    It's difficult avoiding your opinions.

    All you do around here is try to shove your opinion down people's throats, which are based on nothing. You're full of loud noise. That's it. No facts.

    How is Australia kicking Canada's ass? Are you just talking about water sports?

    Because if you're talking about the economy and the GDP:

    Hopefully you don't, but I would say that Canadians reputation in America is not what it once was.

    All my American friends and family have nothing good to say about Canada these days, they basically view it as Mexico North.

    It's understandable that you might think your bubble of friends represents over 300mil people. What do the polls say?

    You are butt hurt, everybody reading this knows it.

    My way of thinking is that I follow Canadian law and pay my Canadian taxes, I don't owe Canadians anything beyond that.

    It's nice that you're speaking for others. Just like your announcement that someone is not working, even though you don't really know.

    As a Canadian taxpayer who works hard, I'm happy that my taxes are paying for you to have internet access so that you can sit here and share your frustrations about how Canada has lost its way and there are too many coloured people. 


  16. Just now, Dougie93 said:

    Sounds like you are butt hurt about it, but I follow Canadians law to the letter and I pay plenty of taxes which then pays for the socialist Canadian free loaders.

    I'm not butt hurt at all. I am questioning your way of thinking.

    I'm happy that part of my earnings that I work hard to make are going towards those who are vulnerable and in need of help.
