  1. WTF! I agree with you on certain issues, others not so much, but at least I usually consider what you say. You're starting to sound like Bubber now! Yikes!
  2. If Trump were to be removed for something this trivial and obviously partisan, I truly believe there would be a violent revolution. Trump supporters have so far taken this in stride, and with certain amusement, but this would be viewed as a coup d'etat...a removal of their rights. In Canada, we would just ask if we still had healthcare and mosey on to work, I think the US would be in an all out right vs. left war.
  3. I like Shakira, but she basically put on the same show as she did 10 years ago. JLo was more updated in her performance, it was more Rhianna/ Beyonce style. They were both good though.
  4. Even if Trumps phone call wasn't perfect, it really isn't worthy of overthrowing the government. The media fear mongers are out in full force though.
  5. They heard 17 witnesses talk about hearsay and presumptions, Bolton giving his presumptions wouldn't have made a lick of difference. That said, I would've loved seeing each side call 4 or 5 witnesses (whoever that might be), but the dems chose to nix that idea because they didn't want to allow the repubs to call any witnesses at all.
  6. Those hundreds of lawyers in the democratic party and those they hired to find a crime really should've consulted with you on this one, because they couldn't find any actual crime.
  7. Wait, are we talking about climate change or "man made" climate change?
  8. The money was actually for the next years Ukraine budget. Nobody died because of Trump, at worst a few pencil pushers were inconvenienced.
  9. C'mon, they didn't even miss the deadline for giving them money. Just because money was approved, doesn't mean it needed to be released that day.
  10. I think homosexuality is more natural than transgenderism. What's funny is that when I was very young, you knew the boys that just didn't fit, you didn't know why, but you knew there was something off. In my teens, we knew who the gay guys (and some girls) were - especially if you spent a lot of time with them in sports or clubs etc. And, despite how history is being told, we never made a big deal of it.
  11. It's all about nuclear weapons - that's all. We can talk about sanctions and overthrows or anything else you want, it doesn't matter. Iran has been actively seeking nuclear weapons for 40+ years and at every turn the USA has blocked them. Diplomacy won't help, leaving them alone won't help, a change in US government wont help, nothing will help except allowing Iran to possess nukes - and nobody wants that, not even China and Russia. I'm not saying anything new or provocative, that's the reality - the want a nukes and no amount of appeasement or diplomacy is going to change that. And, if anyone thinks the "nuclear deal" was working - think again, they were at 20% enrichment when the deal was signed, now they're saying that they're inside of a year from developing nukes. Yeah, they didn't skip a beat - probably ramped it up after securing the $150B.
  12. ^^Sometimes I wish I could be this naive.
  13. Apparently there were 80 or so americans killed. https://www.dailysabah.com/mideast/2020/01/08/iran-says-80-americans-killed-in-missile-strikes
  14. It's staggering just how many people are here siding with Iran....Iran! I know you people hate Trump, but c'mon.
  15. I said "modern butterfly". And, Roy was doing it and winning Stanley cups before anyone ever heard of Hasek. You hate Patrick Roy, I get it. I don't care much for him either, but I'm not gonna let that interfere with reality.
  16. I'm not a huge Roy fan, but lets face it, the guy was a phenomenal goalie. He invented the modern "butterfly" style. Every goalie in the last 20 years is copying his style right now. The guy almost single handedly won 2 cups for Montreal and Trembley is gonna embarrass him and leave him in a game for 9 goals against...yeah, I don't think so.
  17. ^^Exactly, I don't think he's intentionally fascist. He is like most people and just following the leftist agenda put forth by others. Just doing what he's told by the UN, and EU.
  18. That's funny, I don't recall any testimony from either Trump or Mulvaney.
  19. It's hard to dispute a testimony that is all about opinion, feelings....and presumptions What the Reps did though was ask for facts and first hand knowledge, and none were given.
  20. Trump has been a real estate developer in New York. He has seen his share of shakedowns from building inspectors, land owners, politicians, unions and the mob to name a few. I'm sure he understands the concept of quid pro quo. I'll agree that a quid pro quo is up for interpretation, if fact, in politics they're almost implied, but a presumed quid pro quo is week at best. Sure, they might impeach, but with this testimony, it's dead in the senate. The Dems know it, they just want to use the "impeached president" "saved by a corrupt GOP" as headlines for the election. That's all we're seeing.
  21. What view would you call antiquated? Support for our troops, assimilation for immigrants? Surely not bigotry, because we see bigotry from the young left leaning liberals every day (Jess Allen). The views are the same, it's the target that is different.
