    I don't think this will stick to Trudeau either,thanks  to minimal coverage by the mainstream media.

    Trudeau's funding the media - especially CBC - for this reason:   protection!  

    He's got the media in his pocket.

    https://www.theglobeandmail.com/report-on-business/liberals-pledge-675-million-in-cbc-funding/article29354285/

     

    Whenever there is a scandal with Trudeau, CBC projects itself as a news channel and yet, if you follow its follow-up message - it tries to "reason"  with the viewer.

     


  2. By the looks of it, the story doesn't end with just that story.

     

    Trudeau government arranged $1.18 million for WE Day event

    featuring Margaret Trudeau

    I don't know why this isn't in any of the two CANADIAN  24-hour news channel.  Yo - CBC and CTV ,  wakey-wakey!

  3. Charles, why are you so anal about this so-called excessive quoting!  What's with you?

     

    I got a warning of getting a suspension over quoting this much!

    Same with the Europeans too? And not just politics but everything about the US, why? I thought the vast majority of Canadians and Europeans hated them? Why get involved with people you hate? Don't you see that you are only hurting yourselves? It only causes anger, hate and stress.

    From what I've read, it is because the US is Canada's neighbor and main trading partner.... why not find other trading partners? There are like 190 countries out there. Canadians also complain about American arrogance, hypocrisy, ignorance, stupidity and all that, again, why let them in? Why listen to them? 

     

    This is getting so ridiculously stupid!   If you're having a bad day - don't take it out on me!    OR, anyone!

     

     

    My response covers all of his post!  His post is not long! 

     

    You need a head-shake! You're getting yourself agitated over.......

      Explain why I should trim that!

    European nations and Canada.... in fact the entire world. For what? Invasions, bombings, murdering millions of innocent people and imperialism?

    Well - that's the way of the world.   If not the USA, it'll be another big power.  It might even be countries like China, japan, Iran, Russia.

    Meh......I'm glad and thankful it's the USA!  Surely i don't want a hellhole.

    Thank you. Now I have 3 questions, if Europeans and Canadians are angry:

    1.) Why haven't they severed all ties with the US?

    2.) Why haven't they worked together to overthrow Trump?

    3.) Why haven't they declared war on the US?

    Who should declare war on the USA?   For what?  Why?

     

    I don't think anger is enough reason to declare war - especially when we're talking about allies, and countries that share the same values.  Squabbles happen, even among families - they don't kill each other.

    Because......the USA is the most influential mover and shaker of the world.  

     

    What happens in the USA tends to get adapted in other countries.  Most recent examples would be the protests we see over police brutality, and how the government tries to deal with it.   Now, it's all over the world.

    They are not thinly veiled, --- and if you have not seen the better Christianity that is in Gnostic Christianity, ---you show lack of a moral sense.

    Pardon me, but you've proven so many times that this so-called Gnostic Christianity is based on ignorance of the Scriptures.  Just review all your posts!

    I don't know anything about gnostic Christianity - but I can say based on your posts - either gnostic Christianity is indeed loaded with ignorance of the

    Scriptures..................or, you give it a very poor reputation. smiley.gif

    Was Jesus aware of being Yahweh?

    I have wondered how Christians rationalized Jesus' last words --- "My God, my God, why have you forsaken me?"

    Jesus seems unaware that he was God.

    DL

     

     

    God is Jesus.........but He wants us to see Jesus as a human.   Jesus had been showing mankind examples of being an obedient Son to his Father - obedience to the Father is a requirement for entering the kingdom of God.

    Of course Jesus is conscious of the fact that He and God are One and the Same:

     

    John 14

    Philip said, “Lord, show us the Father and that will be enough for us.”

    Jesus answered: “Don’t you know me, Philip, even after I have been among you such a long time? Anyone who has seen me has seen the Father. How can you say, ‘Show us the Father’?

    What did Jesus mean by forsaken?

    The usual definition means abandoned or deserted.

    How can one abandon or desert themselves?

     

    Can you make yourself two, and be at different places at the same time?   God can.    If God can create the universe - do you think there is a limit to what He can do?  Do you think He's under the law of physics or any science?

     

    Matthew 19:26

    Jesus looked at them and said, "With man this is impossible, but with God all things are possible."

    If Jesus knew he was Yahweh, how did he feel about the poor reputation the Jews gave Yahweh?

    Is that why the Jews tried to kill Jesus more than once before the cross got him?

     

     

    Are you aware that most - if not all  - of the apostles were Jews?  You do know that His followers were mostly Jews?

     

    What poor reputation are you on about?

    Jesus was executed for what the Pharisees said was blasphemy, for claiming to be God.  Blasphemy was a very serious crime.

    Further.

    Jesus also said that he and god were one, yet scriptures seem to show Jesus as Yahweh’s good side and Yahweh as the evil side.

     

    That, my friend.....is your own faulty interpretation of the Scriptures.

    If Jesus/Yahweh shared the some consciousness, which they would have to given that there is only one god in Christianity, why are they so different?

    Regards

     

    They're not different.  Jesus did what He was supposed to do on earth as the Messiah.   Part of it is to expand and explain more in depth what is required from us.....that's why we had those parables.

    Just with adultery as an example.   Jesus explained what constitutes adultery.

     

     

    Matthew 5

    27 “You have heard that it was said, ‘You shall not commit adultery.’[e]

    28 But I tell you that anyone who looks at a woman lustfully has already committed adultery with her in his heart.

    Truth must be somewhere in the middle.   Supposedly we breathe in clean oxygen rich air and breathe out dirty / oxygen depleted air.  If you start putting this poor air again through your lungs and recycle many times, this can't be good for you.

    But then, this is the same as sitting in an unventilated room after a smoker has had a dozen cigarettes in the room; or sleeping with the blanket over your head (and maybe passing gas). ;-)

     

    Whatever truth there is - obviously it's not toxic enough to have doctors and nurses worried!   Why are you making yourself fret over nothing? :lol:

    Masks create moisture around your face which can't be good either.  I wear glasses and masks cause the lenses to fog up; a losing cause for me.

    The problem must be  with the kind of mask you're using.

       I had used painter or sander's mask from hardware stores (cup shaped), and masks that you buy at Costco or Giant Tiger (like medical masks) - I never had those problems.   So.....it's the quality of mask you have.   Get a different one.

    Sadly with the country distracted by COVID and the Opposition without a leader, this probably won't effect him too much. 

    That's what I'm thinking too.

    Why are the Cons saying they don't want to bring down the government over this?  What happens if indeed they find something really bad that would justify kicking him out?  Better not say anything.

    Did I miss any press con from Jagmeet Singh?   Why is he so quiet over this?  he should say something!  The world doesn't revolve around and end with systemic racism, you know.

    The Democrats would keep on trying new tricks in attempts to remove Trump from office. 

    Like all two-term Presidents he will lose heavily the mid-term elections and spend the latter half of his second term being very restricted as to what he can do governing by executive orders instead of laws.

    On the other hand, Trump isn't like any President we've seen.  He's more likely to push the limit as far as he can go - after all, he wouldn't be running for re-election.  It'll be his last opportunity to troll and grate on Dems' nerves, which he seems to enjoy.  He'll keep the Dems busy keeping up trying to restrict him! :lol:

    Mysteriously, medical professionals have used masks for hours at a time and suffered no ill effects.  This has been going on for decades.  Your film is is a lie. 

    Surprise!   We agree on this.

    Trying their best to kick the mask out of the equation when simple common sense dictates it helps prevent the spread -  I don't know what the phobia is on masks!  :lol:  It's not like as if when you wear a mask you won't do any other precautionary measures. I simply can't understand that reaction. 

     

    Think of unwanted pregnancy!   Lol.   Sure we're on the pill - but if you insist on the penis mask (condom) - all the better!

     

    Imagine donning masks in public, along with frequent hand-washing, and if you can do it, social-distancing!   It's a win-win situation!

    Hillary never had this big a lead. And the Democrats seemed more complacent on the states that brought Trump the victory. 

    I'll give Trump's team credit. They identified the exact communities they needed to target to win in the battleground states they needed. 

    Now Trump is losing in states he carried comfortably in 2016. 

     

    We'll see in November.  That's the only polling that will count.


  14. Biden's campaign on essential workers.   That's quite  a wide swath - from healthcare people to janitors and delivery men, etc..,

    "We need to more than praise them.   We need to PAY them!" 

    How does that translate?  Were they not getting paid?  What does he mean by that?

     

    If Biden wins, jobs will go back overseas faster than you can say boo!

    Like him or not,  Americans need Trump more than ever!   Come November - he'll win again!


  15. Does anyone know how licensed "big box" daycares operate amid this Covid-19?

    How do kids practice safe-distancing?  Do they all wear masks? 

    I heard that some licensed day cares can barely operate with just the limit of 5 kids in the premises (to accomodate for safe distancing - solitary playing). I don't know how true that is.   How can they survive financially with the overhead of operation?

    Illnesses easily spread among children.   They are effective too in bringing any viruses to their homes, spreading it in the family.  No matter how much we try to teach them safe-distancing, they wouldn't really understand.   How do you teach that to toddlers?

     

    But, our nation can't, and shouldn't be at a standstill just because of this virus.   You can't be held hostage by a virus.  We'll have to adapt to it.  Trump is on the right track.  The longer you tarry, the harder it will be for economic recovery. 

    Daycares are so essential!

    I think, the safest way is to form "bubbles" in home daycares - a minimum numbers of families with the same focus and goal of keeping their children (and themselves), safe from getting the virus.  In the event of an outbreak - it's limited to that bubble.  So many moms whose jobs had disappeared are getting into opening home day cares.  These moms will be back in the workforce - just a different one.  There will be spaces! 

    Private home day cares should be able to accept subsidized clients, in order to meet the demands for spaces.
