  1. Not "nitpicking" at all This is the same issue ive been trying to adress since being chastised for a response i gave, in which no explanation was given If you feel moderating based on your own personal political view point is acceptable that is your prerogative. I on the other hand take offense when a "moderator" not only decides what he considers relevant to the discussion, but purposefully creates a new "tread" intentionally choosing words ( i say intentionally because i don't question his intelligence or command of language) to disparage not only my comment but an entire peo
  2. Oh, so you do speak french. This is again the perfect example of how this forum, and you specifically are ridiculous partisan hacks You have a problem with people using abbreviations because they may be politically charged, yet see no problem using "récit" to describe a flourishing people's and nation. You and this "political forum" are a joke
  3. Not close enough? I was responding to someone who's whole shtick is the supremacy of the British Empire, who then envoked Nova Scotia ( you might not be aware, but the Acadian people were deported by the British from Nova Scotia) How is that not germain to the topic? The crux of my point (that you didn't touch on) was the use of them term "récit". Again either you speak french and deliberately chose a dismissive word to undercut a founding nation of Canada, or you don't speak french and couldn't be bothered to do anything more than a Google search, indirectly dismissing an ent
  4. First off, I must thank you, it's always satisfying when my assumptions are confirmed by the relevant parties themselves, and by using your attempt to appease those whom you support ( i.e. Argus or Dougie) when their ridiculous, ignorant rantings are challenged by "creating" a completely new thread indirectly(at best) accusing (me in this case) of "thread high-jacking" Ridiculous, and here's why. First, in a thread call somthing like "was canada better before" ( im paraphrasing, but thats close enough) the statement was made that Nova Scotia or Nova scotianers was or were great pre confederati
  5. Im sure I'll get "reprimanded" for speaking out of turn again, and im sure you won't even acknowledge this response, but i grow more and more tired of the lack of productive discourse of this forum anyway. So here goes How is asking what he means by "Nova Scotia traditions" by inquiring about the deportation of the first "nation" to settle in Canada. Particularly when he is defending a British interpretation of said history that the Queen herself apologized for? Or is the truth you now have a personal bias against me and will interject when you feel im one upping someone you agree w
  6. Much like you'd need to already be a sociopath for violence in music or video games to trigger something, seeing two dudes kiss has never caused me to question my love of boobs
  7. Ive spoken at the ceremonies in Grand-pré, I know the history of your morally bankrupt coward ancestors
  8. As always your selective memory and ability to cherry pick history would almost be commendable if it were not so intellectually and morally dishonest. Read a bit about acadians will you. Here's a couple quick facts to start you out. They tried to get the Acadians to sign somthing pledging to take up arms for the English knowing a war was coming and only after the Acadians refused( because they just wanted to farm, hardly presenting as an "enemy") did they start planning the deportation They literally had to put the women and children on boats and threaten them if that doesn't sh
  9. So your people were the ones so afraid of the Acadians, they put the women and children on boats in secret and threatened to burn them if the men didn't get on board? Ya definitely sounds like a heritage to be proud of and want to conserve
  10. Well that's the thing, they didn't. Or maybe their developed immune systems allowed them to drink the water. It's us "Europeans" that need such heavily treated water. My girls half sister from Mexico can drink tap water here, we drink bottled water there
  11. You mean the Acadian traditions developed by being the first that settled there, or the scared British tradition that threatened the women and children to deport them?
  12. If you think seeing a same sex couple kissing on a poster or tv wiil turn people gay, maybe you should take some time to reflect on your own sexuality. You sound confused
  13. Apologies, I thought the lobbyist comment was directed at me.
  14. I spoke specifically to Trumps lack of political experience and low communication skills, both objective and demonstrable facts. You answered by bringing up things including but not limited to: separation, sponsorship scandal, trudeau, Clinton, Rwanda, clothing sales, black face, the CBC, trudeau again, news conferences, trudeau again, foreign hacks and my "misguided ideology"(whatever that means) None of which are relevant to the "topic" I raised. If you equate pointing out the fallacies in your arguments with personal attacks, that's on you not me Let me be clear
  15. Bulletin board traps? This is the only forum ive ever participated in Is bulletin board traps, what those who can't argue with reason or logic use when they can't admit defeat?
  16. When you're forced to resort to typos, you essentially concede defeat
  17. Not looking for a fight at all, im actually trying to strengthen the premises your using to support your correct conclusions. Dude, how many times must one say you're right? it must not happen often, hahaha
  18. Again, I agree with you The point im trying to get across is when you use percapita incidents of something(a great way to compare) and are rebutted with percentage of population, then rebut that with total pop stats, your first point is irrelevant because in total numbers the US has more cases, Therfore when you envoke total population you negate the validity of your previously correct conclusion
  19. As can be read in my other comments, I agree with you Im simply trying to point out you used both percapita and total population, these are very different metrics. Conclusions even if correct that are based on faulty premises, can not be considered valid or sound
  20. You're argument is either based on percapita or total population, using both in the same argument is fallacious
  21. Lets hope! Sars did let me bring my girl to my native Toronto for her first vist cheap though, the year after they had crazy deals to promote tourism. I do feel bad for T.O. about the stones, I know someone (not well, but i see no reason to not trust them) that was at one of their surprise warm up shows they did before many of their world tours
  22. Like i said i can only base my opinion on what I've seen, I don't know the man. He can, of course, express any political opinion he chooses, and overall I think this forum is well run (never participated in another one, but perused a few before deciding which to sign up for) but again, based solely on my limited experience, he does seem to interject in favor of those expressing one particular ideology over another
  23. Didn't they do a big study last year at a Mayo clinic, or john Hopkins, that coincidentally used a version of the corona virus, that concluded the states were the best equipped to handle an outbreak? Kind of similar to the thinest kid at fat camp, but still
