    If a government or a cleric supports or proposes a law that, for instance, victimizes women or children or gay people or non-believers, and justifies that law as "Islamic" based on something in the Quran, the Hadith or the Sunnah, then I suppose I will have to agree with Islam's detractors that Islam as a religion is barbaric, backward and ignorant.  Now, personally, I don't want to do that simply because I know too many Muslims who are the opposite of barbaric, backward and ignorant.   The only way I can support my Muslim family and friends is to 'decide what befits the law and what doesn't.'  

    They aren't really practitioners of Islam any longer.

    Why is it okay for your hero, Trump, to be the most UNDIPLOMATIC country leader in our lifetime, but Prime Minister Zoolander cannot? 

    Why do you practice such blatant double standards when it comes to the political arena? Are you really this self-unaware? 

    Irrelevant!

    I'm talking about Trudeau doing a drive-by pot shot at Trump during the primary election - and after Trump had won!

       Lol,  Jason Kenney described Trudeau accurately!  Why would Trudeau openly take  the side of an outgoing President (Obama/Biden) when he knew very well that he'd be dealing with the new one?

    Trudeau had opened himself up to be a pawn by Biden/Obama when Biden came to Canada (just as Trump had just won the presidency)!   Lol.   What was the praise Biden heaped on him, which he obviously lapped at? 

    The designated "torch-bearer" of Obama.  :lol:

     

    Looks like everybody's playing Trudeau like a giddy harp.   Even today as we speak.   I'd love to be a fly on the wall and listen to Trump and Xi talk about Trudeau!

    Can you list reasons you don't like him that are not about his personality or looks?

    I believe how Kenney described him!  It clearly shows.

     

    Jason Kenney Says The Prime Minister Has 'Political Depth Of A Finger Bowl'

     

    Kenney noted that Trudeau served as opposition critic while he was immigration minister — a tenure where the Liberal MP came under fire for saying comments "off the top of [his] head."

    "I know Justin. He doesn't have a clue what he's doing. This guy is an empty trust-fund millionaire who has the political depth of a finger bowl," Kenney told Bell.

    "He can't read a briefing note longer than a cocktail napkin, O.K."

    Lol.  Just the way he  UNDIPLOMATICALLY  handled Trump at the start, is a testament!  Followed by that silly tweet inviting all refugees to come to Canada (which was really meant as a jab at Trump).....how's that for starters? 

    He's got a very big mouth!

    Trudeau has cleaned up a lot of messes previous governments swept under the rug. The plastics are being dealt with now.

    He cleaned up nothing.   But he'll be cleaning out Canada in no time, just the same way Wynn had cleaned out Ontario!

    The plastics?   Why only now?    What took him so long?  He has no choice.  The Philippines didn't want to wait for his turtle pace - the shipment is coming!  The plastic scandal is showing his hypocrisy.

    You're going to blame Trudeau for something done by a private company during the Harper government. A company that no longer exists? Political hacks do that.

    ....of course I'm blaming Trudeau.   He's the one currently in office - why did it take the Philippines to make ultimatums for him to respond.  And, now Malaysia!    Why drag his heels? 

     

    So what if  it's a private company, and that it no longer exist?   Lol!  Is that an excuse? :lol:  Pathetic.

    Trudeau is the one who puffs about an emergency on climate change, right?    Pollution is no longer free - that's the McKenna mantra!   THE SKY IS FALLING!

     

    If that's so...... what about those tons of plastics?   Does he want them to end in the ocean?


  6. Btw.....

    More than 200 people will gather in downtown Beijing to celebrate Canada’s 152nd birthday with the Canada Day in Beijing Gala Dinner on June 21, 2019! The evening will feature the very best of Canadian lobster, beef, and wines and lively entertainment with Madame et son Orchestre and Janaia.

    Will the two Canadian prisoners be allowed to attend?


  7. Well....I'm still amused by that pile of plastic garbage we dumped in Asia.  What does Trudeau expect them to do - dump them in the ocean?   And Trudeau dragged his heels in picking them up (I hope he gets the bill big-time)!   After all, pollution isn't free anymore - right, McKenna?

     

     

    Carbon tax update: Looks like there will be an increase with this carbon tax.  That's the report that came out from the Budget Officer - not any Conservative politicians. 

    Surprise?  Nope.  With all the spending they're doing, he needs to get his hands on serious money! 


  8. Yes, McKenna - pollution is no longer free!   The Philippines and Malaysia should bill Canada for the mountain of plastic dumped in those countries! 

    What does McKenna and her boss expect these countries to do with those plastics?  Dump them in the ocean? :lol:

    Hypocrisy is the name of the game.  Carbon tax is just a ......money grab!

    Well we know why the Liberals bailed. A trial would have shown  the Liberal government has hidden documents from Norman and the courts-to be specific , suppressed and continue to suppress  evidence that would have been used to  exonerate the admiral and show the move to Irving shipyards was purely political in motivation and lacked merit.

     

     

     

    It's also has very much to do with the timing of the trial. 

    Imagine having that thing going - something so similar with SNC-Lavalin, during campaign time! 

     

    Take note, the charges have not been dropped.   It's been stayed - which means it can be reopened within a year.   Imagine that like the sword of Damocles hanging over Norman's head for a year?

      Singling out Norman (from 73 names mentioned), and having him go through all that just because of doing his job (as explained by Jason Kenney, who was involved with this affair), it's like someon in the PMO/Privy Council, is being so petty waging a vendetta against Norman.

    Also, what's Brison's role in this?  He quit politics for a good reason, I bet!

     

    I bet Norman will talk - at a very opportune timing, too!  Keep it close to election time. I hope so.  It's for the best interest of Canada!

    You are a pathetic thinker.

    You don't think at all, French Patriot. 

     

    I think I owe a little explanation.  Do you get why I say RealityCheck's post is based on ignorance?   That he didn't get the OP?  here's what he responded to:

    Quote

     

    Abortion is here to stay.  No one will really try to bring this up.....so why make an issue of it?  

     

    We have to.  It may be legal now to slaughter our unborn even for no reason than just to say because I want to....... but that shouldn't mean we have to tolerate it without voicing out our disapproval,  that we are strongly opposed to it, in fact.

     

    Atheist/secular anti-abortionists, see it as a human right violation  - and they fight it on that ground. 

    We Christians, fight it on the ground that it goes against Biblical teachings. We share a common goal.  To be the voice for the defenseless unborn. 

     

    Even if it's now legal to murder a child, keeping the issue alive may help a woman struggling with her decision,  to do what is only righteous. 

    Talking about it, still, saves lives.

     

    Now, read that, and understand what is being said.   Take your time. 

    Realitycheck's response to it, is irrelevant - he's simply gone ballistic!  Since you liked his response - you therefore failed to even see that not only was his response irrelevant - but, he also was arguing out of ignorance.  Now, what does that say about you? :lol:

     

    Be satisfied that at least, I'd indulged you both with some precious time.

    Bye.

    This is the standard reply from a religious nut. I bet you didn't even read the link, which was all biblical quotes I'll bet lunch you have never seen before. A few examples: "

    • The gruesome priestly purity test to which a wife accused of adultery must submit will cause her to abort the fetus if she is guilty, indicating that the fetus does not possess a right to life (Numbers 5:11-31).

    • God enumerated his punishments for disobedience, including "cursed shall be the fruit of your womb" and "you will eat the fruit of your womb," directly contradicting sanctity-of-life claims (Deuteronomy 28:18,53).

    • Elisha's prophecy for soon-to-be King Hazael said he would attack the Israelites, burn their cities, crush the heads of their babies and rip open their pregnant women (2 Kings 8:12).

     

     

    And those are the same old so-called "evidence" usually given by  atheist idiots!   

     

    I imagine they all came from the same pro-choice atheists sites (but of course, it's like the blind leading the blind).....:lol:

     

      Here....let me illustrate why those are standard arguments from idiots......

     

    Those cherry-picked verses (which are taken out of context),  does not mean you can freely kill the unborn anytime you want, and for no other reason than just.....because!

     

    2 Kings 8

    Because I know the harm you will do to the Israelites,” he answered. “You will set fire to their fortified places, kill their young men with the sword, dash their little children to the ground, and rip open their pregnant women.”

     

    2 Kings 8 didn't only talk about killing children, but also killing pregnant women!  Because it happened in the OT, do religious people believe that's it's okay to kill people? Duh.

    How many men and women were  killed as punishment by God?  Hello?   You're saying just because that happened in the Old testament, therefore it's okay to kill men and women!  Same thing. 

     

    Shows you.....you got it all wrong.   That's what happens when you cherry-pick verses without understanding them!

    Likely because he and his wife think they should decide what they wish to do with their bodies and lives and not have you tell them what to do with them.

    Would you like to be told how to live your private life?

    Would you encourage your daughter to have a child after being raped?

    Would you be the proud grandmother of a rapists offspring? Would you tell that child how he or she came to be, especially if it was not daddy's color, should your daughter be lucky enough to child find a husband in a world where 50% of all households are manned by single women? 

    Would you subject yourself to such a life?

    I do not expect an honest answer.

    Then, do what they want with their bodies! Doh.   Lol.  Why does it matter what I say?  What - am I holding them hostage?

       If they're going to be bothered by my talking against abortion - then it means, my opinion means so much to them! :rolleyes: 

    Do as I do!  I don't care about your opinion since I know they're mostly based on ignorance anyway! :shrug:  At least, I directed you to another thread that explains abortion on Christian grounds - where I'm coming from! 

     

    Freedom of speech/opinion rings a bell with you, guys?

    Let's discuss the weird reactions, instead.  That's what I find intriguing......it's the same exploding reaction from some atheists in another forum, having a major melt-down over a simple Easter greeting from a Christian to fellow-Christians! giggle.gif

     

    It's quite weird when someone suddenly comes angrily on this thread and starts exploding without even understanding what he quoted!    It makes me think of missed meds.

     

    Too many liberals give arguments based on ignorance - Realitycheck's ignorance of the OP is an example!  And, that's just the OP which he did not really comprehend!  lol, When you missed the OP - what have you got?   And here you come, too.....on his heels!  Like you two are tied together, or something!  I guess you think there's strength in numbers, eh?   Doesn't always work in a forum, my friend!  :lol:

    Then he started bringing up the Bible, too!  You guys are so funny......  smiley.gif

    You don't know your bible do you? First off, your imaginary god is a murderous SOB who cheerfully slaughters children;  https://ffrf.org/component/k2/item/25602-abortion-rights. Secondly there is nothing in your Book Of Lies regarding abortion. Thirdly, it is no one's business what a woman does with her body. Not yours, not mine, not government's and certainly not the purveyors of primitive superstitions. 

    Boy.   You seem angry.

    You're just one among many of those I've dealt with - using the same ignorant cliche. 

    Nah.   Not gonna waste my time on you.  Just reading your post above already tells me you're not worth it.  

        Here, just check out this old thread.

    I pleaded with you, but I have to respect your decision. There are times to conceded, so I don't get to control how you vote. I just wish we would give more support to the third parties that have been around for years. We should at least give them a public debate. The biggest issue I have with Max, is that he jumped the line. There's a lot of other parties not getting recognition. I would waste a vote on the someone who have spent years earning it.

    No, you didn't plead - you demanded, and insulted!

    What jump the line are you on about?  Who sez there should be a line-up?  That he "jumped the line," must mean he's got the balls!  Good for Max.   That's plus point in my book!

     

    I'm not sure who I'll end up voting for - I might vote strategically (Scheer) since there's no hope of Bernier ever winning.   But, I might just vote for Bernier out of principle.  I don't know.

    So we have a guy who can be moderate at times, or a bit liberal where it counts. Who cares if Andrew knows how to compromise. I don't want someone whos hard-right on every issue.

    Well it is clear that the only reason POT was legalised was to capitalise on Taxes.  Trudeau said it was to remove the unsafe illegal market.  That is obviously not working.  It seems to me it was just a ploy by Trudeau and the Liberals to legalise it.  What a shame!!!!

    Lol.  Illegal pot is far more cheaper - so, it's very much preferable! 

      I kinda imagine the whole PMO having a toke session every time they have their meeting. 


  17. I can't help but notice - for all of Trudeau's gab about more women in politics, here is something glaring:

     

    WHERE HAVE ALL THE FEMALE PREMIERS GONE? 

    lol.  They're all gone with the wind!  Most, if not all of them, got only one term!

    Political observers may have believed those interpretations were a thing of the past when surveying the list of Canada's first ministers in 2013, which included Christy Clark in B.C., Alison Redford in Alberta, Kathleen Wynne in Ontario, Pauline Marois in Quebec, Kathy Dunderdale of Newfoundland and Labrador, and Eva Aariak in Nunavut.

    One by one, however, those women found themselves out of office and sometimes out of politics altogether.

    The reasons behind their defeats, Thomas said, shed light on the paradoxes at play among Canadian voters.

    Geneviève Tellier, a political studies professor at the University of Ottawa, said many of the other women may have fallen victim to a phenomenon known as the "glass cliff," in which leaders are propelled to positions of authority at a time of crisis within their organizations only to lose the helm when the outlook improves.

    Tellier said that while some won an initial election and most vied for re-election, not one succeeded in being returned to office.

    Who voted them out?  Just shows you - it isn't about gender, Justin.  It shouldn't be.
