  1. BULL!  You can't stop climate change!

    It goes in cycles.  Peoples from different time-lines adapted with it!

      Ah, no.  It won't work that way.

    3. betsy

      betsy

      Of course it won't work......as long as we have people who are out of touch with reality - and opportunistic self-loving leaders like  the so-called progressive Trudeau!

       

      Only rich countries who prepared for it will make it.  Unfortunately for us, by that time - the coffers will be empty!  Trudeau had run us to the ground!

      The people who are out of touch with reality are legion. 

      Those who think we are doing something. 

      Those who think we can do something if we only try. 

      Those who think it's not going to matter anyway. 

      Those who think another meeting in a another major city will do the trick

      Those who think there's still time, but only if we act now!

      All living in a dreamworld.

      Probably a better situation to be in, now I come to think of it.

  2. CAN YOU BELIEVE THIS?

    Charity suspended over terror financing concerns gets Canada Summer Jobs grant

      well look on the bright side , atleast we are not paying each one 10 million dollars....

  3. And I thought Cullen is a reasonable guy.  Lol.

     

    Watched Power Play last night with him, Maxim Bernier and that Liberal guy.  Bernier stood up behind free speech (re: Cooper statement in Justice Committee, which the Committee decided to erase from the official record).

    Bernier pointed out that erasing Cooper's comment, is rewriting that historical record.

      Cullen, smugly replied:   "that speech has a consequence."

     

    Say again, Cullen?   What speech or any action, does not result in any consequence?

    Lol.  Even your silence or inaction, will  have consequences!

     

    Bye Cullen.  Good for Canada  you're retiring.

  4. Manifesto of ChristChurch terrorist banned!  Why?

    Is it because it doesn't flow with the narrative abotu conservatism?

    Lol.  The guy admire China - just like Trudeau!

      Why are you wanting terrorists to get publicity? Because you agree with the terrorists? 

    3. betsy

      Publicity my foot!  Lol.   Why do you want to bury the info?   Because you agree with China-type of propaganda? 

    4. BubberMiley

      BubberMiley

      If you know what's in the manifesto, why are you advocating a wider audience for it? I never in my life thought this site would sink so low as to have people arguing for terrorist voices and playing the victim about it.

  5. Why is the monument and memorial for our Afghan soldiers killed in Afghanistan fighting Islamic Taliban -  hidden from public view?

     

    Are we ashamed of them.....

    .......or, is it because we don't want to offend Muslims?

  6. At 70, Arnold is still the oak!  Ha-ha-ha He didn't even know what really happened!

      Coward got squashed pretty good after the attack though

  7. "THE TWO MICHAELS!"

    Is that how Goodale just reduced these two Canadians languishing in China - "the two Michaels?"

    What?   You can't remember their individual names?

    1. BubberMiley

      BubberMiley

      Reduced? Only if your mind is sufficiently twisted to try to create resentment and anger and play politics with sensitive matters like this. 

    2. betsy

      betsy

      EXACTLY!  Lol.  You said it:  sensitive matter like this.  

      And Goodale just made a sound byte out of them!  

      The Two Michaels!   I've heard the CBC anchor refer to them too, as the "The Two Michaels!" 

       

      Each of them had lost their own individuality!

       

       

    3. BubberMiley

      BubberMiley

      You think they should express their uniqueness as human beings with every reference? Uh...okay...

  8. Prosecutors drop the Norman case!!

    Did Trudeau interfere?

  9. Remember when Wynn went nuts trying to buy votes at that fateful election in Ontario?

    Guess who's doing the same now.

  10. On FACEBOOK?????  

    So.....if you're Muslim, Facebook will let you post message of hate and violence!  It will even allow you to threaten to kill Jews!

     

    Shocking video of children in Philadelphia Muslim Society: 'We will chop off their heads' for Allah

    The Muslim American Society (MAS) Islamic Center in Philadelphia posted the video to its Facebook page celebrating "Ummah Day" in which young children wearing Palestinian scarves sang and read poetry about killing for Allah and the mosque in Jerusalem.

    https://www.foxnews.com/us/video-philadelphia-muslim-society-children

     

    Look at the cute kids.  Good thing they're not Canadians!

    Because these little would-be "child" terrorists.....will likely to be awarded millions of dollars in Canada someday!

      Facebook said it wanted to fight against 'white supremacists'.

      They never said they would be against Black or Muslim nationalists/chauvinists.

      Look it up.

      I recently reported a Canadian page on FB that had posted memes suggesting that Muslims should be 'eliminated'.  Facebook declined to remove it because it didn't offend their "community standards."  I think FB is not really interested in removing hateful content, other than very high profile ones, such as Faith Goldy and Louis Farrakhan.

      It was a mistake doncha know, they didn't vet it. 

  11. Power Play with Nanos poll, shows anger rising against federal government. 

  12. Did you see the new Conservative attack ad on Trudeau?  :lol: 

     

    They showed it last night on Power Play - can't find it on youtube!   All the leftists' criticisms on Trump......you'd think it's about Trump! 

    Lol.   What would Trudeau-loving-Trump-haters have to say now?

  13. Oh boy.  Now we're subsidizing Toyota.  I suppose Abe got the upperhand.

    1. betsy

      betsy

      And a couple or so years from now, we'll be cursing Toyota for announcing they're moving out anyway?
      GM all over again?

       

  14. CTV showed Trudeau visiting Coinstance Bay.   Ooooops,   The clip showed what looked like an angry  man berating  and wagging a finger in his face! :lol:

    That must've been an unexpected reaction to CTV.......the clip got jerky, and you could hear the man, and the flustered  anchorwoman trying to talk over what is being shown! :lol:

    Looks like the man was telling Trudeau he was disrupting their effort to shore up their homes.  Lol.  That's kinda a good way to tell Justin he's exploiting this disaster.

      He was a big help, filled 3 sand bags for a photo op and told the guy he was being ' unneighbourly' and frustration is the story of his life or whatever..   LOL

      Trudeau is a patronizing jerk.  Talks to everyone like their children.  I would've been very close to punching him in the face.

      How long before Trudeau and the Party start trying to associate thus guy with white supremacy?

  15. Facebook should not only face fines, but also be punitively ordered to compensate all facebook members!

    Make an example of Facebook!  

  16. Biden's a drama king!   :rolleyes: His video deserved a big eye-roll!

    Yes!  There are fine people on both sides, Joe.

      Lol.  You need a headshake, Joe.   What are you saying?  

      All Muslims are bad?

  17. If you can afford to have a cottage in Florida, surely you can afford to carry your own health insurance.

      Most people do but as they get older it becomes prohibitive  .. last year was our last because of the cost for hubby.  if it increases a lot now probably many will no longer go  down south. 

  18. With just a few cents more per liter at the gas pump, people are already cranky in BC?  Lol.  They say it could still go up.  Embrace it!

    Just love it that prices are starting to soar.......

    Kris Sims, the B.C. director of the Canadian Taxpayers Federation, said when filling up a typical Toyota Camry sedan, $5.99 will now go toward the carbon tax. More than $10 will go toward the tax to fill up a pickup truck, she added.

    And when it comes to the larger tractor trailers that transport the food and supplies most of us rely on, more than $45 of the cost of a diesel fill-up will go toward the tax.

    “So it’s just an astounding amount of money when you start to add this up,” she told CTV News Channel on Monday.

    Sims said she supports initiatives to create cleaner air, but only if ordinary residents are not made to suffer.

    “The idea of amping up the carbon tax to the point where it punishes people so much that they can’t run a business and they can’t drive around, we have to ask ourselves: what kind of an economy and society will that be?”

    It's a tax grab.   This is how Trudeau will bankroll all his reckless spendings.

    Food, and anything else that uses transportation will go up in prices, too!

      Anybody who wants to eat at places where they formerly used single use dishes and cutlery can bring their own.  It's not difficult.

      Or eat somewhere else.

  20. Golan Heights new community might be named after Trump!  That's the plan.

     

    Quote

     

    “All Israelis were deeply moved when President Trump made his historic decision,” Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said in a video statement made on the Golan.

    He added that, after the Jewish Passover festival, he would “bring to the government a resolution calling for a new community on the Golan Heights named after President Donald J. Trump.”

      I guess the CBC will be ridiculing the Queen now.

      ....and.....they'll be covering the protests and the blimps, more than the actual event.

      From June 3rd to the 5th. 

      I wonder what that   mayor of London is gonna say now?

  22. Will CBC and CTV cover the funeral services for those killed in Sri-Lanka.....just like they did with those killed in New Zealand?

      Did your church give equal time in prayer for the people shot in NZ?

      I don't know.    I don't go to church regularly.

      But that's not the point.   We're talking about media coverage  - especially the CBC, which is taxpayer's funded!

      I'm pointing out the stupidity of over-coverage!  Why do these media give us endless coverage (like the Humboldt) - for crying out loud!   Now, they even cover the memorial service for its anniversary! Does it matter how people get killed? 

      But of course, we can't help but see the political point of covering Muslims that get murdered (through terrorism), and yet don't give the same airtime to others (particularly Christians).  That's the bias I'm talking about.

       

      If you're going to take my status off-topic, you'll get deleted.

      If most conservatives aren’t white supremacists, then how would so-called dog whistles rally support?

    3. betsy

      betsy

      Actually, it's pundits (journalists) who made that observation (Liberals trying to tie up conservatives (like Scheer) to white supremacists -  I think it was on CTV Power Play - saying that it's starting to sound like: Hillary's deplorables. 

      One said people are not buying into it.  They say it could backfire against the Liberals.  Journalists must be seeing some negative reaction from the public.
