      Comrade! Why you heff to be mad? Canadian spend half of money on house. With costs like this, who-- Canadian or Russian-- have cash left for vodka?

  2. 100 film jobs coming to BC. Thanks to North Carolina for discriminating against LGBQT's.

      Hollywood North is soon going to have more film jobs than New York.

  3. Enjoying the Panama Papers: https://panamapapers.icij.org/ Is anyone surprised by this though?

      Am still looking for my former wife's name and how much she hid.

      HUGE story .. we got a thread on this?????

      It's funny. China hides a trillion dollars in Panama, and the Premier of Iceland gets to quit over a few bucks his wife squirreled away.

  4. Say anything? Wasn't that a movie from the 80's?

    1. kimmy

      kimmy

      Before my time. I think it's about John Cusack dressed like a hobo or something.

  5. Remember when Republicans used to stand for personal responsibility instead of blaming "elites" and foreigners? Yeah, me neither.

  6. Andrew Coyne: In both US and Canada, a self-confident, aggressive Left faces an utterly clueless Right: clueless/extreme in US, clueless/vapid in Canada.

    1. Smallc

      Smallc

      Well, yeah - there are enough crazy people.

    2. Shady

      Shady

      He should've added authoritarian to the confident and aggressive.

    3. Shady

      Shady

      Coyne doesn't understand the difference between the Republican Party at the state and local levels vs the federal level. It's an important distinction.

  7. It's the product, stupid. (On why Canada has problems transporting it's oil)

    1. poochy

      poochy

      No, we will just sell oil until no one wants it Exclamation mark.

    2. -1=e^ipi

      -1=e^ipi

      Then why doesn't Saudi Arabia have any problems? Heck even ISIS can get their oil to market (Turkey).

      Already answered your question: it's the product stupid. Tar sands proponents better understand this concept if they wish to continue on n business....

  8. The thing is that people who think of themselves as freedom loving capitalists right now are secretly hoping Islamist supporting states and communist states reach a secret deal to increase the price of oil.

    1. bush_cheney2004

      bush_cheney2004

      No one wishing more than poor oil price suffering Canada.

      American's have always cozied up to Saudi's. Why would they stop now?

  9. Hopes the Senate refuses to confirm any Obama nominations. This will help the Democrats turn out in November....

    1. On Guard for Thee

      On Guard for Thee

      Not a bad strategy. I like the idea of the Rep. senate shooting themselves in the foot.

    2. Shady

      Shady

      Nice try guys. But it's tradition that a lame duck president doesn't appoint a Supreme Court justice in the final year.

    3. On Guard for Thee

      On Guard for Thee

      Since you seem to be interested in the uS constitution, I'll point out that it says presidents "shall" appoint justices, not that they "may" appoint. It is civic duty and is not limited to their first terms.

  10. Thanks to low oil prices, ISIS terrorists see their pay cut in half. Another benefit of low oil prices: helps the fight against terrorism.

    1. On Guard for Thee

      On Guard for Thee

      Maybe they'll take a swing at OPEC next.

    2. GostHacked

      GostHacked

      No wonder Turkey is buying oil from ISIS, nice n cheap these days.

    3. ReeferMadness

      ReeferMadness

      The best part about low oil prices is that they will drive investment out of the world's dirtiest industry.

  11. On tweeter: someone drew a swastika on Tump's star on the walk of fame & there is no way to know if it was done by someone who hates him or supports him.

    1. Boges

      Boges

      When the Neo Fascists invade large parts of Europe and pass laws removing the civil rights of Jews then I'll listen to comparisons to Hitler. Otherwise it's just Godwining.

    2. Shady

      Shady

      If anyone's anti-Jew its the refugees coming to North America from Syria.

    3. BubberMiley

      BubberMiley

      Fascism is a political ideology that does not require hating Jews or invading Europe. It isn't, in theory, even inherently evil.

  12. Russia has blinked on oil. There goes the myth about Russia being strong under tyrant Putin.

    1. On Guard for Thee

      On Guard for Thee

      I think you'll find the 90% approval rating has more to do with fear of, rather than acceptance of Putin. 'Twas ever thus.

    2. The_Squid

      The_Squid

      Here is the question on the survey:

      Do you approve of Putin?

      Yes ( )

      Yes ( )

    3. On Guard for Thee

      On Guard for Thee

      And if you disagree with either of those choices, proceed directly to gulag.

  13. Al Jazeera America to close April 30: good riddance to an anti-Semitic and sexist media provider. Next up? Post Media ;)

    1. overthere

      overthere

      funny you say that when every day the Post Media stalwart columnists Coyne and Den Tandt sheerlead for Trudeau!

      I thiought they might slow down post election, but both are now writing constantly about the #1 govt legislative priority: ranked ballots. Why would you want to deny Mr Trudeau that outlet?

    2. msj

      msj

      Not wanting to deny anybody anything. A bad business is going out of business as it should. Let's hope more media go the way of the dinosaur as they deserve.

  14. Off to the Galapagos for 9 days. Nice to get back to sea level since 2,800 metres in Quito is a bit too much.

    1. Smallc

      Smallc

      Because apparently, no one ever goes anywhere.

    2. Wilber

      Wilber

      Sounds like a great trip. Galapagos. It's on my list. I envy you.

    3. The_Squid

      have a great trip! I'm jealous.

  15. Anonymous have declared war on ISIS. The prophecy is coming true. They are going to get f*#^%d by 72 virgins.

  16. Betcha Rick Dykstra will be getting divorced now.

  17. Will Joe Clark be the lone leader to beat a Trudeau?

  18. If Harper offers to step down if he loses does that mean CPC voters will vote for them or will they sit out the election?

    1. On Guard for Thee

      On Guard for Thee

      If they do I would take that to mean they have their own "time for change" motif within the party.

    2. Mighty AC

      Mighty AC

      When the only options are progressive or corrupt, abstaining is the only palatable choice for some on the right. There is already demand for another Canadian Reform Alliance Party...Harper stepping aside may be able to prevent the right from disuniting...depending on the successor.

  19. Gawker's revenge porn is ugly business as Tabatha Southey says.

      msj

      Gawker has done up a story about the CFO of a magazine who was seeking the company of a gay porn star. The porn star found out his identity and tried to use this info for free legal advice.

    3. msj

      msj

      I refuse to link to the story as it is terrible click bait.

  20. Looks like I have been suspended too for "posting personal attacks..." Guess I did the crime so I'm going to do the time without complaint.... :) but with some curiosity as to who I attacked...

    1. Argus

      The cooler is getting awfully full.

      Do as bc-2004 and I do...rearrange M.Dancer's bones into humorous positions.
