Trudeau and his socialis-leaning, and green agenda - along with the three stooges to back him up -

we're truly....... and thoroughly f***ed!

Betsy, if the End of Days are nigh too isn't all this political stuff really neither here nor there in the bigger scheme of things you believe in?  Why in Heaven's name do you care in the least little bit about all this worldly nonsense?

I wonder how many of the protesters have jobs and how many are receiving government funding.  The irony...

Yesterday was Family Day.

Toronto streets were full of young families protesting.

Cool! :D

I love it when the environmental protestors break up camp, leaving mounds of plastic garbage behind.

Where did that happen?

So with the blockades of railroad crossings and entrances to government buildings across the country, we are seeing an alliance between radical environmentalists and unelected leaders of a tribe, the Wet’suwet’en....

Watermelons. Green on the outside, red on the inside.

Or apples. Red on the outside, white on the inside.

I reckon that whatever our tribe, whatever our colour/clan/collective claim to whatever: our children will all be better off if we don't argue now about who owns what.

Children? I would change that to great-grand children.

Because of reasonable, civilised people in northern North America some 150 years ago, I and many, many immigrants since then enjoy a good, rich life now.

If those people 150 years ago had argued/stopped life as we are doing now, for nonsense, I would not enjoy my wonderful life today.

Huh?

Look at the history of other places, countries. Canada, let's not screw this up.

You don't seem to mind Godwining the issue, right?

Can you imagine the screaming you'd have been be engaged in if our puny capacity to contribute to the cause was cited as an excuse for not fighting Hitler?

In any case if China and India aren't pulling their weight we have no business selling them the means to to pull it even less. Speaking of tyrants no one seems to be very keen on addressing how it is after sacrificing trillions of dollars and millions of lives trying to keep oil out of the hands of communist dictatorships people can't get it into their hands fast enough.  What's with that anyway?

You guys started it. You know how that works.  Besides which its a very good question in light of how everyone is avoiding addressing the wisdom of fuelling the growth of the most dangerous dictatorship on the planet.

You seem to be the one who's keeping track of the "end of days," forecast!  animated-laughing-smiley-emoticon.gif

 

I never said anything about the end of days being nigh!  smiley.gif 

In fact, I've been saying only God knows. It's amusing though  to discuss prophecies that has been made in the news!  Like the 2012 - that pops into mind since I just saw the movie recently.

That shows an ignorance of the Scriptures!  :rolleyes:

 

Listen - we're  supposed to do our duty as citizens of our countries.  In our case - it's a democratic system, and we choose our leaders!  To practice our democratic rights is in keeping with the Scriptures!   So.....I have to care about our "worldly nonsense." 

We have to use our critical thinking, right? That's a given gift - according to the Scriptures.    (but of course you wouldn't know that.) giggle.gif

 

Please - if you're going to mock......... don't flaunt your ignorance.  It ain't a pretty sight. 

And that goes for everyone who agrees with what you'd said!     They only showed they understand squat...........like you. hysterical-laughter-smiley-emoticon.gif

Whatsa matter with you?  You can't tell where it should be asked....you don't know where the subject belongs?? If it's relevant or not?   :lol:

What Is Projection?

Projection is the process of displacing one’s feelings onto a different person

 

 

Kinda, trying to project it on me, huh?   Just saying......:shrug:

 

 

Now that we've cleared that up  - let's get back on-topic.   Don't bring up the God-card or the Christian-card or ....even the fairy-card, into this thread!

Guys,  

Tone down the grumpiness. 

I am here to sing a happy tune

hug Banana and Besty and give them a balloon

then I sing to that Commie Eye

don't be worring about days being nigh

PK, WES Shady remember this

I will always give you guys and Jacee a kiss

cheer is what I bring to this thread

who me tell anyone to drop dead

weez all one big happy family

our nation tis of thee

no wait thats for Yanks

I hate Tom Hanks

I better stop and not go on

God bless Celine Dion

Back to the original premises of the thread-when people are convinced their cause is right and infallible whether its a religious value, or any other value they can take on the same rigid absoluteness. I subscribe to the school of political psychology that believes insecurity fuels extremist values and the more insecure one feels, the more extreme their beliefs become to try alleviate that insecurity. Case in point, Hitler. His extremism was a reaction to and a remedy for a group collective feeling of humiliation he picked up on thta his country felt after losing WW2. The insecurity of being humiliated fueled his personna that addressed that. So can be said of most dynamic leaders. They pick up on group neuroses or insecurities and throw them back out redefined as specific stereotyped enemies that can be easily conquered.

There is a a very real insecurity many deal with when it comes to the environment. They see themselves born into a polluted world they think no one cares about and feel directly threatened by it and this react extremely. The young girl from Sweden was in  fact an illustration of a very stressed out, insecure girl feeling the full weight of the future of the planet on her and instead of adults identifying that and saying they had displaced their problems on her and helping her decompensate, fuel her trauma because they agree with her underlying message. In so doing exploit her psyche and use the image of a stressed out child hoping it will spur others on to better behaviour. All I see is a child being exploited-any message she gives for me is diluted by that fact. The psychological damage being done to her trotting her out as an environmental warrior is unforgiveable. 

In regards to the native peoples, there are groups within their nations very much concerned about the environment but there are also others simply interested in making money no different than anyone else and posing as being concerned about the environment and mixing with the mother-earth types and using them as a cover for their own agendas which are often fueled by anger of not being part of the network of kickbacks they think they have missed out on.

Its a complex issue where indigenous conflicts between their groups and environmental conflicts inter-connect or divert in interests depending on who in the nation of indigenous nations you speak to.

Likewise with business representatives.

This seems to imply that if a slave doesn't render unto a tyrant that which is his and tries to overthrow him instead that slave is disobeying his duty to follow the Scriptures.  Am I reading that right?

So with the blockades of railroad crossings and entrances to government buildings across the country, we are seeing an alliance between radical environmentalists and unelected leaders of a tribe, the Wet’suwet’en.  The protests are against a natural gas pipeline that has already been approved by the elected chiefs of the 20 bands in the contested area.  These unelected chiefs who do not support Canadian law because they don’t recognize Canada are supported by anti-pipeline environmentalists.  They do not recognize that transporting oil and natural gas by pipelines is safer and cleaner than doing it by rail or truck.  They want to “shut down” Canada, yet there is no clear platform.  No doubt they want severe restrictions on fossil fuels and extremely high carbon taxes, but not for the Wet’suwet’en people, who they think should pay no taxes and carry on living with all the comfy carbon-based amenities on a racially pure land, exclusive of non-Indigenous people and free of pipelines.  Is this not part of the same trend we’re seeing in places like Hungary, where the Greens propose carbon taxes for the workers to pay for an exclusive, ethnically pure state?  Thoughts?

 

The lunatic environmentalists/socialist are very much a big part of this shenanigan  trying to destabilize Canada!  They see this a perfect timing with a weak government at the helm. 

Would they have dared doing this with Harper?  Nah!

They're using her like a rag, it's disgusting. They're also teaching her to be angry and condescending towards people who know more than her. I don't think that will go over well when she's older. She's going to be the worst person on earth to be around at the end of all this.
