  1. Here comes the next goal of environmentalists - which could very well be imposed by Trudeau, if he's given a second term.  

    PLANET-FRIENDLY DIET.

    Expect a hike in meat prices.

      People got fat under the pyramid diet that's been promoted by governments.   High-carbs and low protein.   We've seen the epidemic of diabetes! 

      People are losing weight on Atkins and keto - it's the easiest diet to stick to.  It's also the diet compatible to the SEDENTARY lifestyle of people in our modern-day culture!  You don't gain weight as long as you mind your carbs - even without exercise!

       

      This new so-called planet-friendly diet has nothing to do with health or nutrition!  It's bs to suck you in.   It's just another loony dictatorial goal of the looney left!

      Expect mainstream media to be showing so-called "research studies" that will promote this!  They know how to lead the lemmings.

      The left is inherently loonie, there is no part of the left which is not, thus loonie left is actually superfluous.

      At this juncture, if you're looking for an epithet, might as well just speak the truth of it and call them what they are; commies

        You're bringing up a different pair of shoes.  That's not the same as what's happening here, Argus.

      Democrats have been calling him names even before there was the hearing!  They've trampled his right to be presumed innocent until proven guilty! 

    3. Argus

      Argus

      Hardly unusual in these sorts of hearings. Did he expect things to go smoothly given the Republicans blocked what should have been their supreme court nominee for almost a year so they could make it instead? That's on top of the Republicans refusing to even begin hearings on ANY federal court nominees until the Democrats changed the rules to require a straight 50/50 vote. Clarence Thomas went through something not dissimilar and he didn't start snarling and snapping and crying.

    4. betsy

      betsy

      I don't really know what happened with Clarence Thomas.  Was he called "evil"  by others before the hearings?  Was he treated like he's guilty?

      You don't see me comparing Ford with those two women who accused Gomeshi, do you?

      Even so......Kavanaugh isn't Thomas, and Thomas isn't Kavanaugh.   I don't think they're clones.

      How many times have you posted at the "other" today?  I don't see your name in any of its recent posts!   But I see your name here, posted 3 hours ago!

       

      Aren't you a tad confused?  If this place is going downhill - then why are you folks back?  You're not merely observing (as I do when I go take a peek over there - for entertainment value - then I report back here what I'd seen over there)....

      Furthermore, if you have to come back here for "balance".....

      .....you're admitting you got an echo chamber back there, that's why you have to come here for opposing views!

      But as I said, you can't expect anything to happen unless someone actually makes a complaint, whether it's Trudeau, Donald Trump or Doug Ford. You want Trudeau to be held to a higher standard than anybody else because he has higher standards than most, but the standard you are holding him to is unreasonable in every situation. Don't you get the hypocrisy of whining about how we should withhold judgement until accusations are tried in a court of law when a right-wing politician has actual accusers, and then whining about how we're not withholding judgement when a left-wing (as if) politician doesn't even have an accuser willing to give any real account of the incident?

    3. scribblet

      scribblet

      No, and as I said it's not something someone should lose their job over, however, it's Trudeau who is holding people to a higher standard than himself.  You are still missing the point about how it's not about a 'real' account of the incident, it's  Trudeau's behaviour, moralizing and throwing guys under the bus while lecturing others on how they feel etc.    It's what he has said and done since it came out.   However, carry on being obtuse and denial about Trudeau.

    4. BubberMiley

      BubberMiley

      Keep moving those goalposts. It's not about the fact that there"s no complaint, no account of the incident, and not about a higher standard for feminist men. It's because Trudeau dealt firmly with issues where there were detailed accounts and complaints, and so he should...deal with issues where there are no complaints in the same manner?

      I'm sorry if you find that obtuse, but that's how I'm reading your argument. As for denial, I'm not denying anything. He might have done worse than grab her ass. I just don't know.

  7. Ford was DRUNK!    By her own admission!

     

     

     

    According to Blasey, now Christine Blasey Ford, all three had been drinking; but the boys were especially intoxicated

    In other words, she was drunk too - but she says, the boys were more drunk than she was.  How can she tell ?   :lol:

     

    She can't remember details that other sex assault/rape victims could never forget! 

     

     

    Dr. Ford's testimony lacks key details

      Tentatively as she is demanding that he testifies first...   which is unusual as the accused  can't speak to the issue unless he knows what the accuser has said.  

      All designed to drag it out and run down the clock.   Grassley is nuts if he lets the Dems. roll over him on this one.

      Exactly.   I'm not sure of the timel ine or what will happen if she doesn't testify Thursday, but IMO if she does not, they should just have the vote.   This is just  organized political blackmail and I'd like to know who is paying for her high priced democrat lawyers.

    Incident involving man cutting 11-year-old girl’s hijab with scissors ‘did not happen’: Toronto police

      On David and Louise Turpin -  authorities failed to conduct a yearly inspection on what's supposed to be listed as a private school.  That's not to excuse the abuse that's allegedly been happening, but if inspections were conducted, chances are this would have come to light sooner.

       


       

      Quote

       

      Until the girl fled with photographic evidence, it appears no one — neither neighbours nor public officials — knew anything about what was happening inside.

      Few details have been released about how the parents kept them captive despite what appeared to be opportunities for them to leave.

      Riverside County Sheriff's Capt. Greg Fellows said there was no indication any of the children were sexually abused, although that was still being investigated.

       

      http://www.huffingtonpost.ca/2018/01/17/david-allen-turpin-and-louise-turpin-didnt-let-13-kids-see-relatives-says-aunt_a_23335955/

       

      Investigation is still on-going on this one......unlike the hijab-cutting lie, which had been investigatred, and and findings are conclusive.

       

      As for "devout Christian family".....I don't know where Impact got that info.  Anyway, Christianity has nothing to do with this (UNLIKE the hijab-cutting lie - which is religion-motivated). 

      Irrelevant comparison.

    4. ?Impact

      ?Impact

      The "devout Christian" was a description from the grandmother. The school involved memorizing passages (lots of them) from the Bible. They were described as Pentecostal Christian.

      Yes inspections on a private school might have caught something. I am not sure how that would go down with the far right small government crowd however.

      Who knows.....maybe there's some recordings of these meetings and conversations that wasn't revealed during her testimony.  I can't recall if she was asked of any recordings during that testimony.

      It works both ways, all the citizens of EU members have the right to travel and work in any EU country. It is about making people more free, not dictating to nations. Improvements need to be made in how people are allowed into the EU itself, not individual countries.

      I'm not in favour of 'caging children' but keep on denying that it didn't happen under Obama.

      I am however in favour of sending a message to those who cross illegally and also send their kids unaccompanied.

       The U.S. is taking in around 250 kids per day at that rate there will tens of thousands of them to process and look after. Up to now around 12,000 of these kids are unaccompanied minors – so no parents with them.  It’s child abuse to send your kids into another country with gangs/cartels and smugglers.

       

      Family who arrive at ports of entry and request asylum will not be prosecuted because they have not attempted to enter the country illegally

I guess she's got it too good, hiding with her family while the majority of a country looks for her so they can kill her, and presumably her family too.

      Booo-hooooo-hooooo.  Kathy Griffin fears her career is over!  Who's fault is it?  Stop blaming the Trumps!  You thought you had a good idea when you went for that photo shoot.

       

      Btw,  what about Ivanka's career as an entrepreneur?  Does she see the unfairness heaped on Ivanka's business?   What did Ivanka do to deserve that?  None.  She's punished for having Trump as her father!

      Can believe someone pretends to believe that Trump actually called for H. assasination, 'cos he didn't.

  23. Left Wingers are not being fair to Hot Enough.

    Practically every left wingers are whining about how Hot Enough brings up the same thing in every topic.....

    Well, how many of these left wingers bring up my Christianity in every topic, all over the place?  They raise up my so-called "hypocrisy" as a Christian whenever they start losing in discussions!  giggle.gif

    They even keep raising up the name of Jesus - which can put a born-again to shame! toothless-chuckle-smiley-emoticon.gif

    I can remember reminding these left wingers to discuss my Christianity in the proper section! animated-laughing-smiley-emoticon.gif

    ...and yet, they're  clobbering Hot E.

      Don't try to.  Believe me.  You wouldn't know how to use emoticons!   You'd be like a low-rate comedian with crappy punchlines! :lol:

  24. You can't take your kirpan on a plane (for security reasons).....

    ....but you can bring them to school.

     

    Ironic.  Stabbings seem frequent in schools, though I've never heard of any stabbings on a plane!

      Sorry. Sihks, muslims; little green kids from Mars...if you think religious accommodation extends to kids carrying knives to school you're delusional.

      Anythings apparently OK if it's in the name of religion or culture... hell, you can even get away with raping your wife.

      And beating them...and cutting off good parts.

  25. Trudeau ought to be used to being heckled by now.   Seems there's always something to be heckled about him.

      It's happening practically everyday at the Commons during Question (Heckling) Period.    :lol:

      Yes, there is a big difference between Tubby and Justin, the right wing rednecks get all upset when he was called Tubby but they love to denigrate Justin.

      Like such childishness as altering his name to Justeen.

      And, what's that got to do with the issue? - the comparison of their relationship with the media?
