About This Club

This club has no rules (besides Greg's all-clubs rules of following the law & no porn). The only other rule is no crazy spamming so that we can all actually read the forum properly. Everyone can join. Do or say whatever you want otherwise. Trigger warning: words may offend. If someone's being a meanie or calls you a nasty name, i suggest ignoring it, or defend yourself, or leave, I don't care.
  1. What's new in this club
  2. I have heard this said before. I was correctly suspicious: https://www.macleans.ca/economy/economicanalysis/why-im-not-going-to-give-at-the-cash-register-in-2015/ "Retailers aren’t legally allowed to claim a deduction for donations of cash that doesn’t belong to them, even if they did collect it"
  3. Think of their charitable tax credit though. How else is Walmart to survive if not on your generosity?
  4. I am tired of that pestering question "Would you like to donate today?" Wal-Mart has implemented in their self check out process. So every time I visit Wal-Mart and get asked the question, I send them an e-mail asking the same question back. If you are annoyed by their arrogance, please consider doing the same. Send your question to [email protected] If you are persistent we can make a difference.
  5. After their sudden change in picture hosting policies about 2 years ago, when they broke all links to pictures hosted with them and asked the users for ransom, Photobucket kept quiet for a while. This year I started getting incessant nagging messages from them how my account had more images than the limit allowed (of course those images were uploaded when they had no limits) and how I have to take action (read pay up) to make things right. I made it right. Removed all of my 4,500 images from 2 accounts and left one image in both of them. This is the image
  6. wrong forum..I will move it one step down
  7. Dont hold your breath. Mr. Trudeau prorogued parliament, so to cover up the investigation.
  8. There are still many other charities and companies administered by or associated to the founders that need to be accounted for.
  9. The We charity originated in Canada started by a 12 year old kid, and became an organization that helped kids all around the world to escape child slavery. The kid, Craig Kielburger, has since been named to the Order of Canada. Mr. Trudeau has become a veritable King Midas, who's mere touch promises to bestow a great reward, but actually leads to total fatality. Should have said thanks Justin, but no thanks... "The future looks bright ahead," he said. "All is golden... "
  10. WE Charity says it is closing its Canadian operations, blaming COVID-19 and the political fallout from the Liberal government’s plan to have it run a multimillion-dollar student-volunteer program for leaving it in financial ruin. Craig and Marc Kielburger, who are also planning to step down from the organization they co-founded, were set to release an open letter explaining the move. “COVID-19 disrupted every aspect of our work,” the brothers wrote in the letter Wednesday. “The fallout from the Canada Student Service Grant has placed us as a charity in the middle of political battles and misinformation that we are ill-equipped to fight. “The financial math for the charity’s future is clear.” https://globalnews.ca/news/7324897/we-charity-close-operations-canada/ They also said they're selling their headquarters buildings in Toronto. I'm eager to see where that money goes. Their parents, who are pro real estate flippers, have sold properties to WE Charity in Toronto for a tidy profit. Gee nothing fishy there!
  11. Please also note that I haven't given my own opinion on the idea. Economics is a highly specialized field with as much uncertainty as any art.
  12. He thinks money grows on trees and has never had to worry about paying a bill in his life, so yeah he would love it.
  13. I would imagine he would love such a thing. Free money, right ? What's to hate ?
  14. Well I wish we could hahaha. I guess we'll see. Not sure why you assume we'll be doing MMT, is Trudeau i big pusher of it? I wouldn't be surprised.
  15. Breaking news: https://www.cbc.ca/news/politics/bill-morneau-justin-trudeau-decision-1.5689890 Discuss here. Interesting but not shocking. Canada is better for this, he's had at least 3 significant breaches of the Conflict of Interest Act.
  16. Oh they let me out of the cooler for now Besides I only rant in this section. I know better. I know you and Mr. H do not take me too seriously. I am annoyed as snot though. I think for a forum member within one post to insult the entire forum and not be called out on it is bullshit. I also have to ask, why do so many of these one timers hit and run and we never see them again. The pattern is there. So is the pattern of clumsy transference from an old troll to a new one in the same thread or the writer;s cognitive dissonance a phenomena that arises when someone writing is conflicted with the identities they are assuming and it interferes in what they write. Syntax, context, cognitive dissonance, is shit I worked with for years. Yah it gives me a short fuse with people playing the forum with different names and I get being told not to use inappropriate language but I have not. I have challenged words not people and challenged identities when the people are trolling yes. My frustration is with inconsistency in what people say. It is true the longer you are on any forum your familiarity breeds contempt with the moderator as well as making older members too familiar with each other causing contempt. Both phenomena occur. This is what annoys the snot out of me really. Moderators get overly familiar with older posters and hold them to a different standard and that is annoying as hell. I do admit some of the older posters probably can not stand me from familiarity or maybe vice versa, but the majority of us ignore each other when we have lost it and police ourselves. Its only a handful of trolls really and most leave after they burn out their one trick pony approach to trying to incite anger and get attention. The anti American trolling is bloody obvious how suddenly someone shows up, rants about something in general about the US and asks people to join in and then people do like sheep not noticing the poster is brand new and simply engage din a rhetorical accusation or subjective opinion with swet phack all to base it.
  17. Yes I am. I know what you mean. I cannot comment on anyone specifically of course. I feel there are some posters who are having problems, in that they don't conform well or fit in. They do not communicate effectively. Not all are such cunning linguists as we, perhaps. But the person does keep coming back and trying. Maybe we need a new approach to trolls, Rue. Rather than push them away... we need to accept them as one of us. In other words, they too have the right to be completely ignored for their views, and dismissed as irrelevant... BTW does this mean you are now confined to posting only in this club? That would be a cool feature, banished to the Wild West zone, no man's land. Good place to be banished, if you think about it.
  18. I don't see the value in these fake posters. Facebook loves them, but they are clearly a cancer on society. Plus the ones that come here are have stupid points to make.
  19. No and I think you are well aware of the one time posts or trolls that are coming on line and then vanish. I appreciate though you love Taxme. The fact that I and others find him to provide racist trailer trash sputum is not the issue. I am talking about one time posters that clearly provide inflammatory headlines that do not ask for discussion but make a rhetorical statement. This is supposed to be a discussion forum. Many make a statement and do not ask for discussion or give a God damn about discussion. That is a fact. When it happens repeatedly with new posters its a pattern and there is a reason for the pattern. Most of it is spam. Its automated spam coming out of Russia, Turkey, Iran, North Korea, Syria and it repeats on many forums. I am also talking about identical syntax that gives people with multiple identities away. They use identical grammar and phrases, identical headlines except for changing the topic and they stick to one theme usually it is to say something negative about the US or to incite hatred of the US. Its transparent, its repetitive and its annoying as hell but yah its not my forum. I should just ignore it and let it spread like cancer producing threads that simply incite negative rhetorical comments and soon go off rail. You know I am ranting nothing else. I doubt anyone but me gives a shit. I appreciate Monsieur Harder knows my frustration and I am not asking to censor anyone just challenge their words which I have. Never ceases to amaze me how quick these spam trolls are to come and go. I am fed up with troll headlines. There is a double standard on what new and old forum members post. There is a double standard as to what certain older forum members are allowed to do once others complain about them. I have been censored because of complaints by posters who do the exact thing they accuse me of. I have a right to be snot nosed annoyed. So I am venting it. Consider this sneezing back at the source of my snot nosed sniffeling. I have only begun to snit back the snot. Why the phack are you and I sounding like Gen. McArthur anyways. I never liked him. Showboating fascist. The best US Generals in WW2 were Omar Bradley and obviously Eisenhower. Admiral Halsey no.1. I know my US military history. The American's were lucky our soldiers taught them how to be disciplined in the First Special Services Forces. I was brought up to catch the piss in a bucket and splash it back whence it came unless the idiot is pissing up wind. I am pissed at people pissing me off. Now excuse me while I sulk some more O.W. I am gonna hold my breath and turn blue and maybe bust a hemmeroid. Bah.
