  1. "That stops now!".

    Trump declares inner city crime, violence, gangs, and drug problems over. Wow. Talk about a man of power! Guess the police can go home now. Why didn't Obama ever think of that? Guess it'll be pretty peaceful in Chicago this weekend.

      ^^I highly doubt thats the plan.  Whatever plan he (or his people) have is gonna be better than Obama's "blame the whitey", "blame the cops" rhetoric.

      I highly doubt that was Obama's plan.  It kind of works both ways.

      Some overpaid ego realises it hasn't been in the news in a while.  Gotta do something!  What's the flavour of the day?

  3. Suncor Energy Inc. says over the next six years it expects to deploy more than 150 electric autonomous haul trucks at its company operated-mines — a move expected to decrease its equipment operator positions as early as 2019.

    And so it begins...

      Especially since there will be far fewer salaries to tax, and far less income from selling robot made/shipped products to those with no money to spend.

      Yell at the clouds and shake your fists all you like...    you won’t stop continued automation.  

      What lacks imagination is thinking that tomorrow should be exactly like today. 

      Your plan to ban new technologies would put Canada at a severe competitive disadvantage in the world.

      Ban?  Who said anything about ban?  It's possible to think something is both inevitable and crap at the same time.

  5. A senior U.N. environmental official says entire nations could be wiped off the face of the Earth by rising sea levels if the global warming trend is not reversed by the year 2000.  EEEEK!! :blink:

  6. Accusing someone of being a racist is like asking them when they stopped beating their wife. To protest innocence is to protest too much, for the smoke of outrage is seen to confirm the fire of prejudice within. When guilt in thought is presumed, imaginary networks of malignancy and conspiracy are assumed too. The evidence need only establish whether, like the witches of old, the accused is to be burnt or drowned.

      How could anyone ever interpret obsessive diatribes against allowing brown people in the country,

      BROWN PEOPLE????

      How dare you call them brown!  How dare you identify them with their color! 

      Btw, just to be clear....what people do you call brown?

  7. Almost 90 percent of the European Jews polled declared they had suffered some violence (including threatening and offensive online messages...phone calls, comments, and gestures, along with actual physical assaults). Thirty percent identified the perpetrator as "someone with an extremist Muslim view," 21 percent as someone with left-wing political views, and 13 percent as someone with right-wing politics.

      Trudeau has gone to ground, he's keeping a low profile as he hands work off to Freeland.  Bet there are lots more personal days coming up.

      CBC can no longer report on the election they should recuse themselves its  election interference their bias  is showing.

      There are laws and standards that corporations have to adhere to.  Corporations, and all businesses.  They also have to respect intellectual property.  Nobody in China does.  No, it definitely IS a China thing.  We don't have the same issues with any other country.  Stop making excuses for their regime.  The one that covered up a deadly virus and then sent it out to the world.

      Progressives feel if they condemn something then all Canadians do to - because to them, they're the only people who qualify as "Canadians". This wasn't even a case where a minimum ought to apply. If she had been white she'd have likely gotten six years or more.

      So far New York isn’t treating it as a hate crime.  I’m sure it would totally be the same if it was an alt-right white guy.

      I don't see the media screaming about this.. is she giving the questions to Butts or is he giving her the questions?  Talk about shady and fixing the debates.  That editor/reporter should step down, now.   They were actually taking notes..  the optics are terrible.

      Generally, yes.

  22. If you're a Nazi, a KKK'er, an alt-right conspiracy kook, a white supremacist or militia member, FOX news is your go-to source for information. Nothing on FOX will ever challenge your world view, but will instead, reinforce it. FOX news is largely responsible for creating the environment in which Trump and his ilk thrive.

      FOX News doesn't need government subsidy to survive like the CBC.    Fox network also has much better programming than CBC dreck.   Fox content has better ratings....in Canada (Numeris).
