  1. NIKE sees an opportunity to make money. Simple as that. You can't claim the moral high ground while producing shoes in a sweatshop.

  2. John McCain, just 10 short years ago — in the summer of 2008 — he was the worst scoundrel who ever lived, a warmonger, a white supremacist, a Nazi, the worst Nazi since Adolf Hitler and a schemer who would plunge us into a world war as soon as he was sworn in.

    Now a decade later he is the conscience of the Senate, a peacemaker, a paragon of American virtue.

    What a turnaround!

      The American Left/democrats are spending seasons in the abyss. Most too stupid to see.

      It's all just to try and embarrass and piss off Trump - silly games.

      President Reagan got a much bigger show....they hated him too.

  3. Keep you eyes peeled for an interruption in the food supply chain. If that ever happens then you will know what is just around the block.

      Wow....it's happening sooner than I thought.

  4. Is anyone aware that NATO has been staging war games on Russia’s border the past several years?

      Russia holds military exercises right up next to the border of NATO countries. Do you have a problem with that? The NATO exercises in Poland and the Baltic states only have a few thousand NATO troops involved. I doubt the Russians fear they're going to invade.

  5. Africa is Lord of the Flies at a continental scale.

  6. Germany relying on Russian Gazprom for natural gas. Helps that former chancellor is CEO. Bad Russia, but let's give them billions.

  7. At least no one was hurt in the latest rural Wild West Saskatchewan incident. http://www.cbc.ca/news/canada/saskatchewan/gunshot-trespass-report-battleford-farm-1.4541625

      Yeah, but I don't want to rely on a jury to confirm it.

      Sounds like you’d enjoy American-style “stand your ground” idiocy....

      You might worry about skin colour, but I don't.  I wonder why you do.

      Haha, I mentioned Monty Python in the update above, then scrolled down to see JT's kid doing the Judean People's Front salute.

      Coincidences don't get any better than that.

      Oh so sad. It doesn't fit your narrative so it's doctored. Did you see previously where I mentioned his FB page? Then when I looked again I couldn't find it. well I checked again and lo and behold, there it is. Only this time it's not the same page I originally saw. This time it looks squeaky clean. No thug stuff, no criminal stuff, just a wholesome clean leave it to Beaver type picture. How on earth could that have happened?

      You’re truly an idiot if you think I was against theStanley verdict.  I just don’t fall for this brainless stupidity when there is no evidence.   It’s not even a good faked photo.

      How dumb do you have to be to believe that crap???

  9. So, was it worth arranging a train wreck just to postpone the release?

      Don't say that.  You'll offend the politically correct.

      ^Are you offended by "Redskins" Squid?

      Why would I be offended by the term “redskin”?   I’m not offended by the term “nigger” either.  But I am neither a native nor black.  

      But I'm not stupid enough to presume how natives or blacks should feel about those terms.

      I think the more cogent presumption was about liberals...

  12. A war between Iran and the KSA would just be the black flag event to tank the world’s economy and crash the current industrial ecomomy.

      That depends. With my hobby, restoring vintage dirt bikes and snowmobiles it's an invaluable aid. I belong to groups where the members sell and help each other find parts for the machines. Without FB the process would be far harder and much more time consuming.

      Facebook is a marketing tool that collects information about you. Oh look, here's another cute little questionnaire that tells you what you like. Share with friends...

  14. Hey Ted, CNN was a bad idea and should have been aborted in its infancy. Maybe then we wouldn’t have 6 “news” channels all fighting for eyeballs and trying to fill a vacuum with babblers.

  15. Diversity is our strength. Or so they keep telling us, LOL.

      I don't like those either.  Hard to say which I prefer. 

  16. It appears that public education is becoming a complete waste of money. Poor kids!!!

  17. Are Ontario Grade 6 students dumb? Or what's the problem?

  18. “Higher education,” has been debased to accommodate the abilities of the barely literate.

  19. The great reckoning has been unfolding right before our eyes for some time now and we’ve been too foolish to recognize it for what it is.

  20. Soon Antifa will be conducting ‘workshops’ on racism … there will hugging sessions, laying of wreaths, singing ‘We Shall Overcome’ and ‘The International’, brotherhood and peace seminars, and the taking of names of those who DO NOT PARTICIPATE.

  21. After recent events, Champagne Socialist House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi discovered that the United States Capitol building contains many statues of Confederate dignitaries. Thirty years walking those halls and she just noticed?

      Should have referred to himself as Bobby. then he could have called the game.

      That's, of course, Robert Duvall. Martin Sheen played Lee in Gettysburg. No CGI in either of those two.  

      Duvall has done some interesting historical flicks for both HBO and TBS. His portrayal of Stalin is pretty awesome.

       

  23. Any country with a central bank is comprehensively broke, by definition. That is the paradigm that has to change.
