  1. I actually agreed with you on immigration in my second post above and gave you a like.
  2. I can see the Chinse being royally screwed without tiger balm, and all those special animal parts that are supposed to help Chinese men with their night life functions. Probably this will eventually lead to a decline in the Chinese population.
  3. And why is that???? Because you can talk and walk on two legs??? What exactly is your positive contribution to the environment? Don't strain your brains, I will answer this for you. Your contribution is actually negative; not because you are stupid but because smarter people before you gave the humankind a huge technological advantage to all other forms of life. You can now go shopping while someone is raping the environment on your behalf, you can take a flight putting pollution in the atmosphere to go to that exotic beach to look at those girls in their bikinis; drive your truck on the highways doing 120km'h and killing animals of all shapes and forms; you can type on a forum what you think that you think, jump on a dirt bike, a boat or a snowmobile and fart carbon in the atmosphere while feeling entitled. But the bottom line is that the positives you can give in the form of processing food and producing food for the plants and insects to close the circle of life, is grossly outweighed by your toxic emissions. You are not faster than a tiger, you are 100 or more times weaker, you do not have the endurance and will never survive in the wild a whole season without help, your eyes are not as good as his, you are smaller and inferior. And no one will give a dime to see your head and skin stretched by a fireplace. You are not worth a tiger's claw. But in your own eyes and purely for yourself your life is way more important. think at it from another perspective. Universe is relatively endless, so there are endless opportunities that there are other species out there. Species that can come over and take over the land the way we do. And if they have your type of brain functions they will make pet food out of you; for their pets. Because their lives will be infinitely more precious than yours.
  4. I made another road trip last Saturday and came across another dead animal on the road. This time a porcupine. From the time I saw him being a bloody mass of meat to the time I returned to take a picture, some 6 hours later, the body of the porcupine was already gone, removed by scavengers. But I found its head. I wonder how animals eat a dead porcupine, considering the quills that can do substantial damage even to a grizzly. There were moose in two spots that were staying on the road. I do only 70km/h when I am in good wildlife habitat so those are safe with me. Not so with other drivers. I learned there are some 30 animal underpasses in BC. Do you think we have too few, or too many? How frequently should we build an underpass or an overpass on a road running in good wildlife habitat?
  5. Actually many of them are worth more than your life or my life. But our stupid governments will not admit that and continue brainwashing us so people like you think animals are not equal. There are a total of 3,500 tigers left in the world but there are 8 billion people. If you want a fair value exchange of lives, the value of 1 tiger is worth the lives of 2,285,715 people like you. And even this is not going to be fair, because when there are 2-3 tigers left , and they can no longer breed, there are still going to be 7 million people , enough to repopulate the whole World a few times over. For most large species, life exchange rates to human lives will be similar - rhinos, elephants, whales, jaguars, giraffes. For some they will be even worse. (I do not know if the ocappi is still among the living species on the Planet. But your life may still be worth that of a rabbit or a mouse.
  6. Looks like calling something "socialist" is an offense. The principles of socialism had their merits. Our government has little to do with socialism. I am not interested to know how China gets to dominate a market. They get into a place because someone is ready to sell it to them. I have no doubt much of our forests are sold to them as well as much of the oil and gas fields. They have bought most of Vancouver too on a lower , personal level. But then you have nationalists like Argus, who believe that helping their projects actually helps Canada. (what part of Canada, I am not sure) Canada for many years has been supposedly hiring the brightest, smartest, healthiest professionals from around the world. Not only that but they have been brought over to fill specific industry demands. The final result is what you see. We are puppets of China and the US since we never tried to have our own products and stand behind our own technologies. All hi-tech jobs went to Asia, and then the next level of jobs, and then the next. What we have now is a society based entirely on the resource industries and supporting industries and businesses. We have a lot of sales associates, equipment operators, drivers, loggers and miners and of course real estate agents (surviving on overinflated real -estate prices). And that is because even Argus believes we cannot be as fast as them, as smart as them and working for less than them. So lets open our borders, give them all they want and hope for merciful treatment.
  7. Because if they do not have the raw materials they will not be able to make nothing.
  8. and start processing them, turning them into products and selling those products to China!
  9. Oh, boy, then you call my beliefs idiotic.
  10. I am curious what you personally get out of these projects? Are you employed in the Oil and Gas? A miner or a logger? You can throw all the insults you like; I can answer with the same, except I will not bother.
  11. Again wrong! We do not have to live in caves. We just do not have to ship our resources to China and destroy our environment while doing so. We need to manufacture close to where the resources are coming from and use the products again close to those places. With those multi-billion dollar projects Canada starts looking like a low-end developing country that can do nothing better than export raw materials.
  12. I always have Canada in mind. If I wanted to have the type of freedom they have in the States, I would have been there. But I do not. This type of freedom where every week some 15-20 kids or someones employees get killed in a mass shooting is not really my type of thing. Freedom is one thing, but having masses of stupid, irresponsible or downright crazy people requires those to be managed and limited in some of the destruction they can potentially cause. Sorry but total freedom is not a really good thing. We may as well each grab a gun and start killing ourselves; the ultimate freedom.
  13. This is what typical capitalist propaganda looks like. Nothing is "LOST"; because it was never there. The actual proposal under those projects is this: "We can sell your forests, oil, gas and metals and this will bring us $196 billion. In the process we will destroy your favorite rivers, mountains, ocean resorts; we will kill the wildlife, cause an environmental catastrophe like the World has never known; wipe out your tourist industry, fishing industry and farming; we will contaminate your water sources, flood your houses or cause severe droughts and wild fires. But you vote for our projects because they are good for Canada ." (hi-hi-hi , this patriotic spin fools them all the time).
  14. And who are those political enemies? The communists? I have seen it all - socialist parties, democratic parties, labor parties, green parties, conservatives and liberals and I also remember a time when in a small country we had no less than 45 different parties, all trying to get to power. It is always the same - masses who become poorer and disillusioned and those few on top who never have enough and need to take more. But in simplistic terms , it is about space, food and feeling on top of it all. If the human population grows, regardless of political order, the final results are the same. If I had to pick enemies, it will not be based on politics or parties. I would look for those who consume too much an dump their trash in the bush, the river or the ocean. I would look for those who have too many kids; those that burn unnecessarily too much fuels, those that have decided to stock up on precious stones and minerals, destroying the environment to satisfy their madness, I would go after those who continue to hunt for rare large animals of which there are very few left; those that want to live over land too large for them. Those that create the conditions under which mountains of raw materials are transported over the oceans, to get processed and returned as goods. These will be my enemies.
  15. “If carbon pricing is so clearly within the tradition of conservatism, why do today’s conservative leaders reject it so strongly? There are only two credible answers: Either they aren’t really conservatives or they don’t really believe climate change is a serious problem.” There is clearly another credible answer: they do not think the carbon tax is a solution.
