  1. Candy cane banned....because, "J" is for Jesus, the red symbolizes His blood, and white is for the Resurrection.  

    No kidding.  The looney politically correct are getting even more loonier!

     

    Manchester Elementary principal Jennifer Sinclair sent a memorandum to parents and students informing them that candy canes were off limits because “Historically, the shape [of the candy cane] is a ‘J’ for Jesus. The red is for the blood of Christ, and the white is a symbol of his resurrection. This would also include different colored candy canes.”

    The list essentially banned any Christmas-specific decor or activities, including Christmas carols and music, reindeer, Elf on the Shelf, and red and green items, but it allowed for non-Christmas winter imagery such as yetis, penguins and “snowmen, snow women, snow people, snowflakes”:

      The school should be made to stop using the term Christmas to describe their festivities.  Christians groups should take that up as a challenge.  That's a form of misappropriation.

      @betsy  have to agree, this whole PC nonsense is a bridge too far.     I'm surprised they do call it Christmas, usually it's 'holidays' or some such thing. 

  2. Carbon tax.  Won't reveal how much it'll cost consumers.  Must be hair-raising!

    Tax....tax.....tax....tax......tax.....bring it on.  

     

  3. Caster Semenya....isn't the real winner.  That's how I see it.   It's like cheating!  He's got higher testosterone level compared to women.  How can it be any different than taking enhancement drugs?

    “If you don’t vote, then somebody who looks like me is going to vote, some senior person, older than me, some white person.”

    Wynn demonizes WHITE, SENIORS......and these two news channels aren't even reporting it!   She's made a very divisive comment!

  5. CBC Carole McNeil suggests White House veering on "authoritarian" with controlled messages to media. 

    Well?  We have "controlled" media when we got the CBC and CTV, both being mouthpieces for the sitting government!  They even go along and propagandize the deceptive narrative of giving all the credits to Trudeau (Trump renegotiating NAFTA) - to make him look good to Canadians!

      Hypocrisy.  That's the CBC for you - and all Canadians who feigned indignation over the death during the violent protest, and who showed this so-called solidarity with anti-fascist!

      Yet, no one showed any indignation, nor had done a vigil for the American who was murdered by a Canadian terrorist!

  10. Contrary to predictions - religion grows.

     

    "Evangelicals increased their total numbers as Canada’s population grew.

    The same goes for Muslims, Hindus, Buddhists and Sikhs.

    He had accurately forecasted a long, drawn-out decline for the United Church of Canada and the Anglican Church. But some religions were getting an infusion of new blood."

      Immigrants aren't voting Liberals for liberal reasons. 

       

      They don't like the Conservative stance on immigration - that's the simple reason.  But they're bound to be more compatible with Conservative values!

  11. CTV anchor baffled by the rise of Trump's approval rating and yet, athletes rebuff him.  :lol:

      Criticism of Trump himself has become a form of virtue signalling of its own. That is to say, it is a stylish thing to do... it gets applause. The criticism itself doesn't even matter, as long as one blanket dismisses Donald Trump as an absolute charlatan and cad. The more absolute, the better.

      But many see through this and recognize it as theatre. The Dems and the media have tried to pull off the same joke too many times. We already know the punchline: Donald Trump.

      Still the record holder for lowest approval rating over the term of his presidency, currently at 53% disapproval rate - this means the majority of people disapprove of him, in case the number confuses you.  Seems like most people agree with Hollywood and athletes.

      He's also behind Biden by 10 points.  But I guess Trumpetts are desperate for anything positive, so a slight rise in approval to not even a majority is "good news"

       

       

      Eh?   What's that got to do with what I said?

       

      Hollywood and athletes aren't as influential as they imagine themselves to be!

       

      lol.  I guess anti-Trumps are desperate for anything negative, so they spin the issue out of context! :lol:  They're nervous nellies! hahahaha

      National popularity polls are irrelevant.

No, sir, we are not fools for asking this question, and we demand to know the answer to this question. You owe this to the American people.”

  13. CTV Marcia McMillan and that girl were pulling a fast one on an alleged "fact-check" on Trump.  what so-called fact-check was that?

    When Trump said that money from Nato countries "are pouring in,"  these two fibbers were saying that countries had already made a commitment even before Trump took office!  DOH, you empty-headed talking heads!

    crazy-sign-smiley-emoticon.gif

     

    Making commitment, isn't the same as "money pouring in!"  So many countries had made commitments, and they weren't fulfilling those commitments!  That's the point!

     

    Now, it looks like some countries are making good on those commitments!  They're giving the money!

     

    The only fact-check I can see is showing a lot of talking heads don't even realize the drivel they spill!

     

  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:

      @betsy     So is the Toronto Star and the Liberals of course, no surprise there.   The game is on.

      Actually it’s not new as it’s questionable as to how much coverage the media really provides, and in this case, how fair they would be.    Last fall Patrick Brown’s  Chief of Staff canvassed media outlets about not providing a bus to follow Brown during the campaign so the PC’s were looking at doing away with the bus long before Ford became leader.    

  16. Dare I hope?  Could this be true????

     

    "Majority of Ontario voters want Liberals out: Poll

    Eight in 10 of the Ontarians surveyed, or 81%, told the pollster that it’s time for another political party to run the province,

     

    “When given a choice as to who should govern Ontario, voters still preferred the Ontario PCs (44%) to do so versus the Ontario New Democratic Party (24%), the Ontario Liberal Party (19%) or another party of their choice (other 13%),” the firm says. "

  18. Democrat Schumer tries to weasel justification why Kavanaugh does not deserve PRESUMPTION OF INNOCENCE! 

    watch how he trips himself!

     

     

      If it's a fact-finding proceeding (and not a criminal trial) - you do not jump into conclusion that an accused is automatically guilty just because somebody accused him of a crime!

    Yes, IF - IF Ford is right, of course....Kavanaugh's credibility is shot.


    But that's the question, isn't it, moron?

    Is Ford right or not?



    The purpose of fact-finding IS TO DETERMINE WHETHER FORD IS RIGHT,
    OR NOT!




    Hey, moron.....until it's determined that she's right (through what you described as, FACT-FINDING) , that means, you don't declare the accused automatically guilty!

    You wait to see the facts!

    See? You're tripped by your own words that this so-called "fact-finding job interview," is nothing but a farce!

    You pathetic, deplorable weasel. You're no better than a con man!
    I hope voters see through these deceptions the Dems try to weave around their supporters.


    BLEEEEEECH! Sorry....I just puked.

      It's this kind of fanatical determination to ignore reality which is going to get the Republicans hammered, both in November and in 2 years. There's no reason why Kavanaugh can't be withdrawn and another conservative nominee put in his place. Continuing to push this guy, despite his pathetic performance in front of the committee, his lying, evasiveness, yelling at the committee, crying and anger management issues, is moronic.

      So let me get this right...   she saw them spiking the punch with drugs yet still went to 20 parties - and she was best friends  with Ford and  Swetnick.   Who in Gawd’s name are these people?

  20. Dems and media are all aghast that Trump put the blame on mental illness!   He's right! What is wrong with that?

    The excutives even gave themselves fat raises!

     

    Apr 2017

    Last week, Trudeau said the government respects “the free market and the choices that companies will make.” On Monday, he said the government is “obviously not pleased” with Bombardier’s decision, “but we are happy to see it make decisions that are fixing that for Quebecers’ and Canadians’ confidence.”

    https://globalnews.ca/news/3354398/bombardier-trudeau-hammered/

     

    What f**king confidence is he on about when it isn't the first time Bombardier had been bailed out by Canadian taxpayers???
