  1. Is there any truth in this? I wouldn't touch a gay loonie. Will have to resort to quarters.
  2. Funny how some people make assumptions. Where is the evidence he is a dual citizen first? Even if he is a dual citizen, where is the evidence this is anything negative? Secondly where is the evidence he is a racist? How about producing some evidence instead of making wild allegations?
  3. Were you a member of the Conservative party and participated in the choice of the new leader, Scheer? People who didn't participate don't have much to complain about.
  4. China is a totalitarian country and does not believe in any kind of human rights. Without America there is no freedom. The freedom we enjoy is because America and the west defended it in the world. You sound like you are on the wrong side. America and the west are our allies, not China.
  5. One cannot make assumptions about religion if they know nothing about it. Belief in God is by faith and the Bible says faith is a gift of God. (King James Bible) Modern translations are corrupted because they are based on some corrupt manuscripts.
  6. It is a secular government, but there are a lot of Christians in it.
  7. The election of the 3 Green MLAs and the NDP in BC was one of the worst things that portion of the voters did to BC. The majority of people in BC support the Kinder Morgan pipeline but we will all pay the price for the disastrous decisions of the Green - NDP coalition.
  8. The U.S. legal system allows illegals to cross the border and remain in the U.S. I believe it was allowed by the previous administrations because of international conventions, possibly connected with the U.N. on rights of refugees. Europe has had the same problems. To change that would probably cause a backlash from the UN and other countries. I am not sure why the U.S. does not do what Australia does. Perhaps the legal system in the U.S. would make it more difficult.
  9. The idea was to build a high wall with very sharp razors along the top to discourage and make it next to impossible to climb over. But they need to change the law to make it possible to deal with illegal border migrants right at the wall, question them, and immediately ship them back to Mexico. The trouble is the UN has taken over nation's sovereignty and made if very difficult to stop illegal migrants. There are countries in the UN who want to tear down borders and enable the billions of people to move wherever they wish.
  10. The reason why a physical border wall is necessary is because if one illegal migrant steps across the border, the U.S. is obligated to let the person stay while their application goes through the process and hearing which could take a long time. In the meantime, they may just disappear somewhere in the country and refuse to report to any hearings, knowing they will be ordered deported. The only way to stop a person from setting foot on American soil is a wall. The National Guard or border police cannot stop a person from stepping across the border and claiming refugee status. That is the way the laws are written apparently and cannot be changed possibly because of U.N. conventions which were signed onto by previous administrations.
  11. Better to believe the Holy Scripture. Read Luke ch17 vs 19-31. King James Bible. Jesus gave this account of a rich man in hell and Lazarus. It doesn't say it was a parable. It must be taken as fact.
  12. The thing to remember the Bible says all are sinners and worthy of damnation. Sure there are different kinds of sinners. Some hedonists, some adulterers, some crooked in their dealings with others, and some crooked politicians who will say anything to get elected. No use going through the list of possible sins. The fact is someone who not as bad a sinner as others still doesn't get into heaven according to the Bible unless he is born again. So non-believers in Christ will be in the company of all kinds of different sinners from the world's worst tyrants, the sexual sinners, the crime gangs, and all the down to the kid on the block whose sins might seem insignificant. It is foolish to compare one's self with somebody like Trump and think that will get one into heaven. It won't. Maybe one hasn't committed the same class of sins but that doesn't absolve one from all the other sins that people commit daily. That's why God sent his son into the world to save lost sinners, including someone like Trump. Who knows what he believes? It is foolish to judge. "For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life." John 3:16 The worst mistake someone can make is to think he is not as bad as some other guy and think that this will be enough to get him into heaven.
  13. I think Trudeau killed the Northern Gateway Pipeline project because he believed it would offend the Spirit Bear in the Great Bear Rainforest. The pipeline would have gone through a small part of the so-called Great Bear Rainforest to reach Kitimat. But he killed it and said the Great Bear Rainforest was no place for a pipeline. Don't offend the Kermode Bear.
  14. Don't know if you ever watch those channels that show border security agents running around the U.S.-Mexican border trying to catch illegal migrants coming but it is a steady struggle. Also watch the cocaine manufacturing and underworld in Columbia and other places and how they ship it into America. Billions of dollars worth. The Americans use helicopters, ATVs, trucks, police on foot constantly struggling. One the illegals come in all they can do is arrest them and process them and let them go. They are supposed to appear in a future hearing. It is a hopeless situation because previous administrations laws allow border crossers to stay once they set foot on American soil. Similar to Canada. A wall might do a lot by making it physically impossible to get in. Without the wall there is no hope of stopping them from continuing to pour in. Also, a lot of these migrants are coming from central America and Africa, bad places. Lots of crime and bad dudes. Many of the ones who get into America head for Canada because they know our system is generous and possibly they will have a better chance of staying in Canada. If rejected by the refugee board at some distant time, they might just disappear into the woodwork and work under the table.
