  1. Teddy Roosevelt...racist...slave owner...war-monger...colonialist....and a Nazi. You can see why he must be eliminated from history.

  2. Perhaps we could get officers Friday and Gannon to give those Antifa kids a talking to.

      Just the facts, son...

      Show me on this doll where the President touched you.

  3. Götterdämmerung!

  4. "Are you the poet? I used to admire your poetry. I shouldn't admire it now; I should find it absurdly personal. Don't you agree? Feelings, insight, affection...suddenly trivial now..... You don't agree...you're wrong! The personal life is dead in Russia. History has killed it."
    ---Dr Zhivago (1965)

  5. Certain Fawlty Towers episodes to be removed from British TV for being too much like the times they were created in as opposed to being in the woke now. Thank goodness...that evil couldn't be allowed to continue.

      I hear they're editing Gone With The Wind, too!

  6. Fort Bragg and others now racist forts...you can tell by the way they sneer at certain recruits & soldiers.

  7. Rioting brown shirts are termed protesters. Can't beat those optics...they might beat YOU.

  8. If you can't say anything nice, don't say anything at all...

  9. One can't have a stimulus package for the US economy during an election campaign....It might actually stimulate the US economy!...and that would be undesirable for those seeking power.

  10. Tom Hanks & wife test positive for The Pest.

  11. Venus rather glorious at the moment. In the West after sunset if you're looking...

      Yes, I am loving the view. I am a Venusian observer... one of my favourite planets. Well, really any planetary apparition is my favourite!

      Some years ago I attempted to get photographs of Venus using a telescope. If you're into that, the next month is ideal. Venus is bright and fairly easy to capture with a short exposure. There are no moons of course, but one can observe the phase change as Venus swings around the sun on its inner orbit, over the course of days and weeks. A very important observation which Galileo was able to make, even with his crude instrument.

      From this he proved that Venus orbits around the sun. "Surely the people will rejoice when I announce this truth that I have found." he said.

      Not so much rejoice...lol.

  12. Just spent some time arguing with a fellow that insisted that Latinos are native to the Americas and we stole their land. This is what we're dealing with in terms of historical context these days.

  13. Trump does the pace lap at Daytona with The Beast...his 22,000 lb armored limo. Air Force One does a fly by. Crowd goes wild.

  14. Christina Koch lands safely after 328 days in orbit. Note that she still needs a chair....in terms of going to Mars. But in a lot better shape than earlier duration flight astronauts/cosmonauts.

      Still, one can only imagine how bad it could get if things get catty... in outer space!

      It was always the women who got into fights when I worked for the government. There were always feuds and cattiness and rivalries, and it didn't matter if they were in their 20s or 50s. The men got along and did our jobs.

      Ultimately, Mars is significantly lower gravity than Earth, so if some of the atrophy can be avoided by vigorous exercise and such, perhaps they can still pull off a Mars mission in the near future. A free return fly-by might also be a goal as a sort of test mission...but it might not be worth going all that way to Mars and not land...politically as well as realistically. 

      Phobos would also be a likely target for a manned mission + base of some sort...a ready made space station. Very low gravity...practically dock with it rather than land. But there's still some...

      Bringing gravity with you...so to speak...is the other obvious route. A rotating section that pulls a certain percentage of 1G....for example. Or power assisted suits for the crew to make-up for lost muscle.

  15. Trudeau moves forward with plan to licence ALL media that distributes content in Canada. They'll decide what's fit to print.

    Ministry of Truth stuff....

      When 600 mil does not buy total control of the media....the next step is to let the liberals decide what is good news or bad news...because they have already proven they are transparent, honest, above reproach , What can go wrong there... 

  16. Brexit...done.

      Yes, I agree some people are over the top with their Trudeau hate. It's getting ridiculous.

      BC...

      Chrystia definitely has some of those "Medieval issues" with the Russians. From the mother's side, mainly...Nazi grandfather...and all that. Common with Ukrainians during WW2 as many viewed the Germans at the time as liberators...that would change...

      Same with Volga German types like myself...only to a much lesser degree. Stalingrad is much further away than Kiev. Stalin liquidated most of the remaining Volga Germans in the USSR around 1942 as a precaution.

      I see your point, Dog. After that much time it's in the blood. Like the fall of Yugoslavia, it proved certain things.

      Also those Euro's are much more akin to blowing the absolute crap out of each other, including carpet bombing and land-mining, than we are here in NA. Thank you, Atlantic Ocean...

      Ukraine had SS-19 and SS-24 ICBMs targeting the U.S. just one generation ago.

    The books were then burnt to warm the saunas of Alexandria. A six month supply, apparently.

      Much like Germans in a Russian winter, the vehicles will start breaking down in various ways after a few more days like these.

  24. CBC cuts the Donald Trump scene from their airing of Home Alone 2. No worries, that's hardly state censorship at all!

      Movies are usually edited for length for commercial TV. People started tweeting about this particular edit in 2015. Sorry you were fooled by Trump junior again. You'd think you'd know better by now.

      Not to mention how triggered you guys can be by absolutely anything that you feel disrespects your clown president. Getting a little feverish in your adoration. :lol:
