  1. I haven't been here long enough to know if you're a leftist but "a level playing field" argument is a leftist argument and it does NOT work. Yes it sounds good and on the surface and would seem that nobody but a hardcore capitalist would argue against it. But look, from a purely systemic point you can level the playing field but the playing field will never be level regardless. That's because there are people who just perform better than others. Some people have vision and the drive to make those visions reality while some people just don't have that. I firmly agree that there should be no bar
  2. When my son fractured his hand and knee he had to go to the fracture clinic twice. One day for his hand and two days later for his knee. Apparently the doctors working the fracture clinic are specialist specialists and each focuses only on one specific part of the skeleton.
  3. I don't hate Americans. I don't hate America the country, hell I even lived there for 4-5 years. I do hate America the institution and its horribly wretched hypocrisy though. As for Alex, he's just as arrogant and ignorant as the Canadians he whines about. If you listen to him you'd think only Canada benefited from the unique relationship that both countries enjoy.
  4. No, he's showing you what a ignorant sack of crap you are. Neither Canada nor Canadians burned down the White House. But worthless American shits did burn down Govt House in York. Typical too. The US has been invading counties since 1812 and yet they can't figure out why they are so globally hated. And look at your country's foolishness. The US had a problem with Japan deciding that Asia was its "sphere of influence" while long maintaining that the entire western hemisphere was America's sphere of influence. So you what you have is a continuing history of being a nation of hypocritical, ,war-m
  5. After 15 years of Liberal mismanagement and incompetence it's no wonder the Ontario health care system is broken. Mind you, there's also a BIG difference in wait times and such depending on where you live. the clinics have become a joke too. There were created to take some of the stress off of hospital emergency depts but lately I haven't been seeing that. Now if you need more than a stitch or two the clinics tell you to go the emerg. And I don't believe emergency depts are doing real triage anymore. It IS a first come-first served basis unless you arrive by ambulance as a trauma case.
  6. Regardless of the veracity of the OP, it does open up an interesting bit of Groper hypocrisy. Groper decided some time ago that the FN MUST be consulted on various infrastructure and resource projects. Yet the same idiot who agreed with the MMIW report that there's a "continuing colonial genocide" against the FN, blithely announced a rather large increase in immigration before all that. Now, it's funny how we have to consult the FN when it comes to growing Canada's economy in various sectors, but when it comes to growing the population artificially with irresponsibly high immigration numbers
  7. In Canada, the employment rate measures the number of people who have a job as a percentage of the working age population. Last time I checked, 15 wasn't working age. And I know how unemployment is calculated. My father was working at the senior level E.I. when it still stood for 'Employment and Immigration'. In fact he's the one who originally said, "part-time work isn't a job, it's a hobby". I would add to that though; Unless you have two PT jobs that give you 40 hours. Hell, my first "regular" work out of high school was Mon-Wed-Fri at a haberdashery and Tue & Thur hauling flammable a
  8. But that's not how it works though. Every time someone gives up looking for a job, they disappear from the unemployment stats. So let's say there were 100,000 people unemployed at the beginning of May. During that month none of them found jobs so 1000 people gave up looking for work. The end of May would show that only 99,000 people were unemployed. Now, let's say in June none of 99,000 find work and as a result, another 1500 give up looking. June's report will state that 97,500 people are unemployed even though the other 2500 still don't have jobs. Assuming of course nobody else lost their jo
  9. The employment rate hasn't set any records. The record level of employment was in Feb 2008 at 63.7%. 1.5 points higher than the current level. UNemployment figures can be misleading. Let's say there were 100,000 people who were unemployed last month and out of those 100,000 people, 1000 simply gave up looking for work. The next report would say only 99,000 people were unemployed. Of course you'll note that employment numbers mean any employment when it should only be for gainful employment. A single part-time job isn't "employment", it's a hobby.
  10. During HNIC, Don Cherry often rants about the same thing, you don't rack up the score and embarrass the other team. However I disagree. If you're able to rack up the score like that, it's the other team that's embarrassing itself. The only advice I have in that instance is, when the game is locked up don't make a big deal about every goal you score after that. There's no need for big showy celebrations when you've got a nice 5 goal lead or better. That's just poor sportsmanship.
  11. So a creepy little pedophile who can't seem to stop himself from pawing at and trying to kiss little girls is the leadership that Milano says the US needs. Whelp, no surprises there that a leftist would endorse a pedophile after whining about an alleged rapist being appointed to SCOTUS.
  12. Bullspit. Every race of human evolved during rapid upswings in climate. Almost every empire and civilization came into being during rapid upswings in climate. And during every single one of those events the average global temps were warmer than they are today. 1100 years ago the Greenland ice sheet did not exist other than some glaciers in the far north of the island. Now idiots are freaking out about the ice sheet receding. They freak out over sea ice extent. An extent that was first measured by satellite in 1979. 1979 saw an abormally high sea ice extent and that's the base line the al
  13. No, Europe was flooded with immigrants due to war. Syria and ISIS in particular. The Arab Spring happened as a result of dissatisfaction with being oppressed. As for the 12 year prediction, alarmists have been giving 12 year warnings since the 1950's. Albeit in those days it was a coming ice age. Today the alarmists amusingly base that 12 year period on a Heinrich event, which is when the earth cools by as much as 5 degrees in about a decade, give or take a year or two. When I heard about the "97% consensus" crap I knew the whole thing was BS. Especially when you consider only 1/3 of scie
  14. There's a difference between denouncing something and apologizing for someone else's actions. Jesus Christ, I'm supposed to apologize for being White. I'm supposed to apologize for being a man. Piss off! Thank god (ironically) that I'm not a bloody christian. There is only ONE person whose actions I'm accountable for and that is me. Like I said, funny how the collective guilt game is "bigoted" when applied to muslims but apparently I'm supposed to share guilt with rapists solely because of an accident of birth.
