  1. oh my! In relation to this event, Trump just stated he would go before the U.S. Congress to ask for a declaration of war against ISIS! #drumBeatingBlowhard .
  2. logical fail.... any such claimed attacks you use to deflect from the U.S. illegal invasion of the sovereign state of Iraq, were not on the scale of today's terrorism as directly coordinated or peripherally influenced by the vacuum-filling Al Qaeda/ISIS/etc.. Apparently, "regime change" has consequences - yes? .
  3. Conservative Senator leaving Conservative caucus to become independent Senator... elected Senator Doug Black from Alberta has chosen to follow the 'Trudeau way'! Go figure, hey!

  4. per your source reference: "known to the police for assault with a weapon, domestic violence, threats and robbery but had no previous convictions for terrorism." --- "He was known to the police for violence, and using weapons, but had no direct links with terrorism" --- "he had no known links with terrorism and was not under surveillance" --- "loner, recently estranged from wife, depressed"... this is so confusing in that Archie offered up a guarantee! .
  5. - Francois Hollande (France) - 5' 7" - Nicolas Sarkozy (France) - 5' 5" - Silvio Berlusconi (Italy) - 5' 5" - Dmitry Medvedev (Russia) - 5' 4" - Vladimir Putin (Russia) - 5' 7" - Tony Abbott (Australia) - 5' 9" - Shinzo Abe (Japan) - 5' 10" - Yasuo Fukuda (Japan) - 5' 6" - Xi Liping (China) - 5' 9" - Jacob Zuma (South Africa) - 5' 6" - King Abdullah (Saudi Arabia) - 5' 10" - Kim Yong-il (North Korea) - 5' 3" - Mahmoud Ahmadinejad (Iran) - 5' 2" in keeping with the seriousness of this thread, the man-bun for the man-baby... doing whatever it takes to get elected! .
  6. other than perpetually playing out your agenda here, why take such offense to a simple drawing of attention to the like significance in relation to national holidays of celebration. Yes, Bastille Day in France carries the same relative weight/significance as if it occurred in the U.S. on July 4th, Independence Day. .
  7. oh pleeeese! Your "proper written English", wasn't. But hey, how telling of you to pick up the mega-talking point from right-wing media about the "74 questions" directed at the U.S. Attorney General. Those questions were answered - just because the Republicans didn't care for the answer being provided... . After reviewing some of the actual testimony it's abundantly clear just what Republicans were trying to do; meanwhile Democrats weren't playing along and actually took the opportunity in speaking directly to the U.S. Attorney General to question her in regards to actual ongoing and pertinent matters of the day within the U.S.. .
  8. oh my! Is there no spiritualism without gawd/god/God? .
  9. at the solemn Dallas memorial service... GWBush - off his meds?

      No...that's the way he always was.

      I don't think he's planning to endorse trump.

  10. a cursory review of the thread shows me at least 4 other MLW members are speaking directly in regards Canada... and not in relation to anything I've said. More pointedly, you yourself have done the same: as a gentle reminder to you, the following is a sample of just some of your posts showing your own emphasis on Canada. Apparently, you have a double-standard here - yes? Apparently, when given a direct challenge you're now wildly deflecting and claiming "thread derail"! . .
  11. if you, as you say, "knew"... that Clinton released her tax returns, why did you mention it, implying she hadn't? Where's your raised concern/issue with Trump refusing to release his tax returns? as for those deleted emails, correct me if I'm wrong, but she didn't personally delete them and, more pointedly, they were recovered by the FBI and were included in the FBI investigation - yes... or no? .
  12. no - it's Trump that refuses to release his tax returns! An extract from the, "Statement from Hillary Clinton on the Release of Her Federal Tax Returns": .
  13. what about hands - can someone with man-baby hands win/be a leader... of the "free world"?
  14. with such a weak, weak contingent of announced candidates... surely the coronation of Peter (putting the Progressive back in Conservative) MacKay awaits! .
  15. so..... since Canada certainly has no "unchecked border chaos", you're not concerned in regards Canada - yes? .
  16. how about a simple MLW rules based directive on preferred posting acumen, one that speaks against verbosity (with or without a suggested character limit), as well as that most annoying practice where certain members choose to introduce 5+ lines of blank whitespace... (often multiple times within even a "shorter" post), to separate points being made. Oh and something that suggests there is no need for this kind of repeat nonsense!
  17. I'm too much of a gentleman, too respectful, too Christian (for you), to suggest where your head is... where you should pull your head out of! Carry on. .
  18. so you're in prevention mode, hey! Your mind numbing large font, bold highlighted, red-coloured emphasis is all about... prevention, hey! c'mon, Canada has a Constitution, Charter of Rights, Parliamentary system, legal framework, multi-tiered judicial structure, military, robust multi-layered policing, etc., etc., etc.... what, as you say, are you "preventing" here... in Canada... with all your scurrying about finding your "gems of wisdom (real, suspect, imagined or outright fabricated)... your uhhh... "gems of prevention" from foreign countries? speak to the practicalities here - tell me, relate explicitly and definitively, what concerns and threats do you perceive to exist today (and in the near-future) in Canada... and what are the practical and logistical actions/steps being taken, either by those "enablers" or directly by your "evil doers", to affect your perceived concerns and threats? just where exactly do you interpret Canada's political, judicial, policing, social, etc., framework is failing - failing and causing your perceived concerns and threats; failing and causing you to suggest your focused emphasis on, as you say/write, "PREVENTIVE! " is not being addressed? Not being addressed to the point you're, uhhh... apparently, picking up the slack here at MLW? .
  19. petty? Well, not withstanding your own overt pettiness on display here... you should read what I actually write! When I even (albeit mockingly) thank you for taking up the challenge and actually looking inward to Canada, that clearly should have reinforced the challenge I was putting out there. The challenge to instead of anally dredging up "real or suspect/imagined" foreign circumstance that has no direct bearing on Canada/Canadians, focus inward and present examples of what I labelled (your) concerns/threats. I made a pointed emphasis on your juvenile dumping of agenda-driven tailored Christian activist videos... videos you just dropped without adding a single word of your own, "interpretation or explanation as to why you're presenting them... why they're examples that concern you, that threaten you... that concern/threaten Canada/Canadians and I put that in the over-riding context of the influence of Canadian law and policing. . oh pleeese! Try a googly and realize just how widely the mainstream media reported that Lethbridge incident. Oh wait... what you're really saying is what the Rebel Commander championed, right... that the incident wasn't widely reported to identify the single person assailant as a supposed immigrant from Pakistan... a 'Muslim' immigrant from Pakistan. That's it, right? That's your big concern with that incident, right? Now I don't know this to be the case - apparently, as my firing googlies present, only the Rebel Commander and his Commando Brigade managed to flush that detail out. It must be true - it's the Rebel Commander, after all! but this is an example to speak to. Someone earlier sarcastically mentioned (can't recall if it was this thread) identifying all perpetrators of crime by their race/ethnicity/religion... like that, for example, "white Catholic Canadian born guy with German/Irish ethnicity who diddled a young boy in the school yard". In the Lethbridge example you're so fixated upon, the individual was arrested and charged - Canadian law and Canadian policing. . I revel in "the likes of you" who think they've, as you say, "stung" the waldo! I've already addressed your fail in this regard. I really, really would like you to relate your thoughts on the "likes of me"... I won't take it personal and, if you're smart, you'll generalize it so as not to draw moderator attention. But hey - fire away... it expect it will say much more about you than it will about "the likes of me". In any case, your "likes" are on display throughout your posting history... unless I'm confusing you with someone else! .
  20. the Notorius Biggie Ginsberg! Of course, she is the target U.S. Republicans like to point to when railing on about the need to elect that fraud/charlatan Trump... to stop Clinton from appointing yet another liberal judge to the current vacany! in regards an earlier post... caught a segment on MSNBC tonight where a 'legal scholar' addressed the right of the "Supremes" to speak out directly... on any level; that only lower-court judges are mandated to stay apolitical by rule. It was quite telling to listen to examples from the past; particularly the most recent when the much profiled conservative Justice Scalia regularly associated with prominent conservative organizations/politicians... and certainly expressed his personal politics through media profiles/interviews, notwithstanding actual judicial rulings in themselves. .
  21. if you've "got something just for me", don't be such a chicken-shyte as to purposely quote my post and take my name out of the quotation... of course, when you do that, you effectively disable the board notification feature alerting a member to being quoted. As for your supposed clarification, I highlighted those 'MLW member usual suspects", those who so obsess themselves with copy/paste of supposed extremist examples from (principally) Europe... and if you give credence to any of those "gems and nuggets" presented... present those examples as an ALL encompassing broad-brush indictment... with fear-mongering extension towards Canada. so... thanks for taking up the challenge and actually looking inward to Canada. Thanks for presenting your apparent answer... your equivalency to all those European "gems and nuggets" being obsessed over. That's quite the equivalency you're presenting! Your video grouping is a true testament to, at best, a couple (your first two videos) of free-exchange thought street-scape interactions... at worst, a couple (your last two videos) of purposeful highly provocative exchanges intended to solicit reaction for agenda driven purpose. although I didn't watch all the videos to length, I suggest I 'caught the highlights'... it was truly quite humourous to watch that dueling Bible passage exchange with the one individual intent to showcase "JihadJesus' in a Bible passage... and the competing Bible thumper insisting the passage wasn't Jesus' words and was just a parable! Bloody hell - we get stronger exchanges here within MLW threads/posts! Wait now - was that the equivalency you were going for? Ok, ok... your last 2 showcased videos are an indictment - of the purposeful antagonistic and provoking tactics deployed by the representative of that BS organization, 'Rise Canada'. But hey, they accomplished what they intended... they got the likes of you to bite! if you want to present your equivalency, to speak to the supposed concerns/threats you perceive to exist within Canada, come back with mainstream media articles/examples of legitimate events/circumstance - and what you perceive as a concern/threat... and why you feel concerned/threatened particularly factoring Canadian law and policing... don't further waste my time with tailored videos from "Christian activist groups"; one's you simply drop without adding a single word of your interpretation or explanation as to why you're presenting them. But hey, thanks for your showcased equivalency! .
  22. there is certainly one MLW member who honestly feels that way! .
  23. the UN doesn't "tell" Canada... or any country... what level of refugees to, as you say, "take {them} in". For decades, the UNHCR has used the phrase, "durable solutions", to speak of its engagement toward solutions that enable refugees to live their lives in dignity and peace... inclusive of voluntary repatriation, resettlement and integration. There are many very detailed UN documents, iterative building over time, that speak to these "durable solutions" - this document is an example of a brief and summary overview account of those low-level most detailed documents that speak to these UNHCR solutions: 2014-15 - Finding Durable Solutions I encourage you... I challenge you to explore UNHCR policy related documents to support your implication that the UN "tells" Canada what number of refugees to accept. I await your specifics in that regard - thank you in advance. as I give your posts in recent pages a most cursory review, I note your source reference base is most partisan... most suspect... in providing any semblance of fair, balanced and independent consideration. It seems your intent is to foster extreme examples from these partisan/suspect sources detailing events and circumstance in foreign countries... to foster those and then wildly offer supposition (as you've now just done), that these accounts have merit and direct correlation to Canada, to Canadians. Is this YOUR Christian way? .
