      It would be nice if the Trudeau Liberals could do even half as good a job for Canadians as they are for Americans.

      No point watching folks count votes. Morning will tell. 

      Either way...results will be interesting. 

      The Dem's platform seems simply: We have no leader and no platform...but...let's throw a wrench into all this progress. Lots of folks out there like smashing and breaking these days. And there is no wrench shortage.

      :lol:

      In other news, Elon's Roadster crosses Mars's orbit.

  6. Bannon: Will populism be socialist or nationalist ?   It's not going away.

      Bannon won that debate!  Hands down. 

       

      Quote

       

      The proposition the two men debated, with Bannon in favour and Frum opposed, was: “The future of Western politics is populist, not liberal.”

       

      Quote

      Despite Frum’s effort, Bannon appeared to be more persuasive. At the start of the debate, 28 per cent of those in the audience indicated they were in favour of the idea that populism was the way of the future, while 72 per cent were opposed.

      However, more than half said they were open to changing their minds during the debate and many did. After the debate, 57 per cent were in favour, with 43 opposed.

      Good speech by Trump!  Unifying..... yet, driving the knife in Democrats!  

      I found it significant that he personally addressed Kavanaugh's children to talk about their father.   We can only imagine the hurt and harm those evil Democrats had inflicted on these children, and how they were enduring having to face peers in school.

       

      I notice though that Ginsburg seems  too weak to applaud!  Doesn't bode well......

  10. Winning !   Judge Kavanaugh has been confirmed by the U.S. Senate.

      Lol.   The shouting protesters disrupting the voting - it's dejavu, like the notwithstanding clause by Ford! 

  11. CBC covers Senate hearing...LIVE ...because it matters to Canada ?

      CBC was covering Trudeau answering questions from the reporters at the UN yesterday. One reporter with a smirky smile, asked his opinion about Kavanaugh - and CBC promptly left Trudeau and got to the scene where Trump was about to chair the security council meeting.  CBC cut Trudeau as he began to respond! 

      I thought, was CBC tryng to keep Trudeau's response (and possible onslaught of questions pitting him against Trump) from Canadian viewers..... or they find viewers prefer to see Trump?

      Yep.CBC wants to be just like CNN. They started advertising the Kavanaugh show yesterday. "Starting tomorrow at 6 am!" Today, they've got a countdown going in a small window on the bottom right,"1:19:30 Ford to testify!", steady stream of people giving their opinions. This is no longer news, but it is purely designed as entertainment. That, and shaping our opinions!

      It was false advertisement!!!  I stayed tune at 6 - but it turns out, the testimony will be at about 10 am!   they got me!

       

      Lol.  You can't trust CBC with anything - not with news, or ads!   No wonder they won't  survive without taxpayers'  funding! :lol:

  13. Judge Kavanaugh is getting borked.
