  1. I don't trust any political party. I vote for the lesser of several evils. They are preferable to the liberals and far left NDP. Not voting is giving more power to the liberal and left which is not a good option.
  2. There is basically only one kind of Christian, that is, one that believe in and accepts the Bible. If you think Christianity is divided between Bible believers or what you say is "Bible thumpers" and those who don't believe the Bible, you don't understand anything about Christianity or the Bible. One cannot be a Christian without believing in the Bible's basic teachings which includes spreading the gospel. If one is a Christian they would understand what the gospel is and spreading the message of the gospel is a fundamental part of the Bible teaching. There is no such thing as a Christian who is not a "Bible thumper" which means someone who believes in the Bible and would support its teachings.
  3. There is far more to it than "religious messaging" and abortion. Talking about social conservatives opposition to abortion does not present an honest picture of what concerns so-called social conservatives. That is just one issue of out many. The whole thinking of the liberal left is from the pit of hell. Their thinking is corrupt from beginning to end. If something good comes out anything they do, it is only by pure accident. Christians oppose the woke agenda that the liberals and NDP are forcing down the throat of Canadians. Like doctor-assisted suicide. teaching school children they can choose which gender that suits them, same-sex marriage, not to mention countless other things, like pandering to every perverse lifestyle and ideology that comes along and is brought in from the third world. Social conservatives are concerned about laws, education, Marxist globalism, Socialism, excessive reach and control of everyone's life and businesses, which means loss of freedom, and many other things that the liberals and progressives are doing. It also seems the BC NDP are bent on setting up a separate legal system for aboriginals and giving them special privileges that nobody else has. When will the billions in payouts for past wrongs ever end?
  4. Canada is self-destructing, and the Conservative Party largely is following down that path in the destruction of Canada. The only part of the Conservative Party which takes a different view are called the social conservatives, but they are in a minority and overall given the bum's rush by the insiders and leaders of the party. The president of the Quebec College of Physicians now wants to explore the possibility of the euthanasia of babies. This is a new low and he is putting forward his arguments to the parliamentary committee which has oversight and studying the changing euthanasia law. The Liberal government had already decided to open it up to the mentally ill and the new law takes effect this coming Spring. This is an all-time low in morality and demonstrates how far our country and government has sunk. "The president of the Quebec College of Physicians wants to explore the prospect of euthanizing suffering babies and believes it’s nobody’s business but doctors’. To be fair, Dr. Mauril Gaudreault would let parents have a say as well, so he’s not being totally arrogant. Gaudreault’s rather obscene suggestion illustrates just how far down the slippery slope we have plunged when it comes to mercy killing, euthanasia, Medical Assistance in Dying (MAID) , call it what you will. It is worth quoting Gaudreault extensively from his testimony last week before the special parliamentary committee looking at MAID. “Medical assistance in dying is a form of care, a medical act that may be appropriate in certain circumstances,” he said, according to the parliamentary translator. “It is not a political or moral or religious issue. It is a medical issue.” So basically, you can trust me; I’m a doctor! No need to have discussions on the meaning of life, the value of a human being, or the philosophy of existence. No need, even, for society to take a stand, just leave it to the medical profession." Michael Higgins: To Quebec doctors, killing babies is just another 'form of care' (msn.com) Where are all the churches in Canada on this? Where are the politicians and conservatives who claim to believe in God and the sanctity of life? There seems to be a strange silence as well as the media very selectively only allowing liberals and progressives to be reported and speak to the public. How often have we heard opposing views on such subjects as abortion or MAID on MSN such as the CBC or CTV? Very rarely and very little. Trusting MSN for your spiritual food or guidance on any morality is like trusting the Prince of Darkness. It will lead you deeper into the depths of iniquity.
  5. Very sad. When one disparages Bible believers by calling them Bible thumpers, we know which side he is on. He is on the anti-Christian, anti-Bible side or the side that follows the Devil. There are only two key powers in this world. God and the Devil but they are not equal. The Bible tells us God is of infinite power and the Devil is not. The Devil's power is limited and only temporary. He is on the losing side and will ultimately be defeated. Everyone is following one or the other. The Devil's side is the losing side and on the wrong road. There are only one of two places to go, either heaven or hell. We know from the Bible which place the followers of the Devil are heading unless they turn to Christ and repent and believe the gospel that Jesus died for his/her personally and paid the price for his/her sins, and was raised from the dead. This is the central message of the Bible. We also know that Bible believers will always be disparaged because that is what Jesus said would happen. "19 If ye were of the world, the world would love his own: but because ye are not of the world, but I have chosen you out of the world, therefore the world hateth you. 20 Remember the word that I said unto you, The servant is not greater than his lord. If they have persecuted me, they will also persecute you; if they have kept my saying, they will keep yours also." John 15:19-20 KJV
  6. I was a member of the CPC for 30 years by 2022, but I lost faith in the Conservative Party when they chose O'Toole as their leader. He came across as a liberal in conservative clothes and when he embraced the progressives, that finished me. I realized politics is an immoral, anti-God sport. That ended any further support for the CPC from me. The only reason I vote for them is because they are the lesser evil. I could never vote for liberals, NDP, or any kind of progressives that support abortion, same-sex marriage, sexual orientation/gender identity agenda as it is promoted and taught now to children in schools. This country as I see it is going downhill. When someone says they support progressives and progressive policy such as abortion or same-sex marriage, what they are saying is they oppose our Christian heritage that western civilization was built on and prefer the licentious iniquity that we see today. I realize a small percentage of people cannot change the direction of the country or system. Where a country heads more likely depends on the wishes of the majority. Government reflects the majority. Sadly that is what is wrong with politics. But as long as I am still able to cast a vote, it will be against the iniquity I observe as much as possible. Hopefully there are others who will see the light sooner and also stand up to be counted. It is not the popular thing to do. Going with the flow and the gang is the easy way to go.
  7. What someone wears on their own time is completely different than what one wears when they are in a position of authority as a school teacher or a government representative for example. A religious symbol is a form of advertising of one's religion and kind of in the face of a person when you are a student and the teacher wears it or you are a person who goes to a government office and the person representing the government wears it. It should not be allowed. Jobs have dress codes and a hijab does not fit in with normal dress code in western society in certain kinds of jobs. After work, those people can wear what they want. In a job one is not totally free to do what they want. We all have to surrender some of our freedom when we go to work. We are there to serve the employer in whatever way he wishes. That's what we are paid for.
  8. For 2021/2022, it cost Canada $24.5 billion just to pay the interest on its federal debt which is now sitting at over one trillion dollars. I wonder how many people realize, the larger the debt, the more money Canada has to pay in interest, the less money there is available for public services and support for health care and everything else.
  9. Yes, exactly! I fear for what could happen to the west with the increasing immigration of people who follow Islam. Yet, when the government in Quebec outlaws people using their positions of authority in public services to spread their religion by wearing religious symbols such as the hijab, the Liberals and left in the rest of Canada complain and say they are being denied their human rights.
  10. That is true in the sense that nobody should start a war or attack others or cause a war. But the statement by itself gives the impression that Christianity means one cannot defend himself or his country in a war. That is incorrect. I have already explained that the Bible/Christianity allows for police and military for self defence. An individual has a right to defend himself and his family in any situation where they are in danger.
  11. I think women can be in the military but should be in separate divisions and separate accommodations. The should never have been mixed together in the same units and groups. This was bound to lead to trouble because of human nature. But liberals and left live in an alt reality and ignore human nature. They call human nature "culture" and claim they can change "culture". It is fiction.
  12. Why did Xi scold Trudeau? Maybe because Canada spent years helping China erode human rights (msn.com)
  13. I think Trudeau's feeble effort to scold Xi is nothing more than a show and charade for domestic consumption. The liberals and left have no intention of seriously doing anything about the CCP's massive influence and infiltration of Canada.
  14. The CCP has infiltrated all levels of Canadian society and government. It is not just one area as the occasional media report seems to imply. Read the book "Claws of the Panda" by Jonathan Manthorpe.
  15. "1 Let every soul be subject unto the higher powers. For there is no power but of God: the powers that be are ordained of God. {ordained: or, ordered} 2 Whosoever therefore resisteth the power, resisteth the ordinance of God: and they that resist shall receive to themselves damnation. 3 For rulers are not a terror to good works, but to the evil. Wilt thou then not be afraid of the power? do that which is good, and thou shalt have praise of the same: 4 For he is the minister of God to thee for good. But if thou do that which is evil, be afraid; for he beareth not the sword in vain: for he is the minister of God, a revenger to execute wrath upon him that doeth evil. " Romans 13:1-4 KJV " 4 But flesh with the life thereof, which is the blood thereof, shall ye not eat. 5 And surely your blood of your lives will I require; at the hand of every beast will I require it, and at the hand of man; at the hand of every man’s brother will I require the life of man. 6 Whoso sheddeth man’s blood, by man shall his blood be shed: for in the image of God made he man." Genesis 9:4-6 KJV These verse are an important part of the Bible or God's word and Jesus is God. "1 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. 2 The same was in the beginning with God. 3 All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made. 4 In him was life; and the life was the light of men." John 1:1-3 KJV We see from these verses the teaching in the Bible "thou shalt not kill" has certain exceptions. The police have a right to shot someone in order to defend themselves from a threat to their lives. A nation may defend itself from aggressors and terrorists. These may require that an enemy be killed in defense of one's self, fellow citizens, or country. Capital punishment for murder is taught in Genesis 9:6 KJV This must be by the lawful authorities and in accordance with the law.
  16. The liberals meaning the actual Liberal supporters or progressives and the further left Socialists meaning the NDP and Greens have ignored the God of the Bible and rejected our Judeo-Christian heritage and have been altering Canadians society for decades with their alt reality ideas of pacifism, progressivism, multiculturalism and brainwashing of society through the education system, politics, and media. We should not be surprised that much of society has become peaceniks in Canada and opposed to proper spending for the Canadian Armed Forces. But good leadership should be more intelligent than the common herd or mob and should have learned the importance of a proper military in the dangerous world we live in. Unfortunately I don't think liberals or Socialists have learned anything and they are the last people that should be leading and governing Canada.
  17. He bought a pipeline that already existed but was being expanded, the Trans Mountain Pipeline. He killed the proposed Northern Gateway Pipeline, imposed a tanker ban on the west coast, and killed the proposed Energy East pipeline.
  18. Finally, the premiers of Alberta and Saskatchewan are starting to understand the seriousness of Trudeau's attack on the energy industry the past seven years and are talking like they are going to stand up to him. As this article says, Canada is not a unitary state where a federal government can dictate everything to the provinces and destroy their key industries all in the name of fighting climate change and achieving "net zero". " Both premiers have uttered a very interesting truth: that the federal government is a partner, not a ruler, in Confederation. They are also reminding Canadians of the very real dangers of being obsessed with the climate crusade. A glance at world politics, the grim acceleration of food prices and inflation generally, Europe’s justified anxieties about heading into the coming winter with devastating fuel shortages — all of these are an outgrowth of the blind war on energy resources and the foolish and dangerous conviction that windmills and solar panels can run the modern, high-tech global economy." "Rex Murphy: Western premiers finally push back against Trudeau's devastating agenda (msn.com)
  19. Canada's health care system is failing, not funded properly, the military is short thousands of soldiers and short many navy ships and aircraft that cost billions of dollars and Trudeau is giving our money away to the third world. Trudeau pledges cash for infrastructure and making vaccines in developing countries (msn.com)
  20. Solar Output The main source of Earth’s heat is the Sun, so even small variations in solar output can have an impact on the climate. Researchers monitor these changes by observing sunspots and (more recently) satellite measurements. When there is an increase in sunspots, solar output also increases. Scientists at the University of Washington have determined that at the peak of the 11-year solar cycle, increased solar output causes a sudden warming of the atmosphere of 0.16 °C. Orbital Changes Changes in the Earth’s orbit mean that the distance between the Earth and Sun varies over a long period of time, causing frequent variations in the total amount of solar energy reaching our planet. These variations affect terrestrial climate change and the characteristic frequencies are known as Milankovitch cycles. unquote 3 Main Natural Causes of Climate Change | Greentumble The fact is you believe man can control the climate, but the reality is it is very doubtful because in order to stop emitting CO2, man would have to destroy almost everything to try to stop releasing CO2. The energy industries like oil and gas, the coal mining, driving motor vehicles, shipping goods on the ocean and flying aircraft. Manufacturing would have to stop using oil and most things use oil to be produced. The agriculture industry uses machinery that requires oil. Where would our food come from and how would it be shipped. Life on the planet is built on and depends on the existing energy industry for oil/gas. Mankind would die if it disappeared. It's not going to happen. Taking money from working people in the west to give to the third world is not going to stop climate change either. It will only hurt hundreds of millions of people.

  22. "10 Failed Global Warming Predictions That You Need To Know About" " The 2008 study produced what the U.K. Telegraph very charitably called “a radical set of ‘possible futures,'” among them that the first climate refugees would begin flooding our planet’s icy, southernmost when temperatures made everywhere else too hot to live. “Refugees are expected to move to Antarctica because of the rising temperatures that will see the population of the continent increase to 3.5 million people by 2040,” the Telegraph reported. “As the world fails to act on climate change, researchers predict that global trade will collapse as oil prices break through $400 a barrel and electrical appliances will get automatically turned off when households exceed energy quotas.” 10 Failed Global Warming Predictions That You Need To Know About (westernjournal.com)
  23. What is done in a laboratory is not proof of anything that happens in the atmosphere. The atmosphere is too large encompassing millions of cubic kilometres and the causes of temperature change are very complex. The radiation from the sun changes on solar cycles. There is radiation from space that hits the atmosphere. There is water vapour that is also a GHG and is a large part of the atmosphere. There is ocean temperatures and water movement, cloud cover, volcanic activity to name a few. It cannot be replicated in a laboratory. I'm sure if you enclose something in a large test tube with CO2 gas it is going to trap or effect the temperature at the bottom of the container. But that does not represent the atmosphere which is very large and complex, affected by many factors. There are many factors that likely affect the temperature in the real world. It cannot be replicated in a test tube. Ask any scientist.
  24. You assume Canada is liabile without any proof and want Canadians to pay billions of dollars for something that is completely unproven. And you think that is responsible moral behavior. That does not fit or meet the standard for legal liability. If you were in a court of law you would have to have solid proof not speculation and theory to establish legal liability. I think you need to study the legal meaning of liability.
  25. Total CO2 in the atmosphere is very small because it is a trace gas to begin with. 97% of this trace gas called CO2 in the atmosphere is natural. Man only contributes 3% and out of the total CO2. That means man contributes next to nothing. The atmosphere is also full of water vapour which is also a GHG and effects the climate. How do you know it is man's tiny contribution that is a cause of climate change? You have not explained anything. The fact is you don't know and are just assuming man is the cause. You are like little Greta assuming the worst about mankind and anyone who has any resources or savings like Canada. Canada's contribution has been likened to throwing a medium size Tim Horton's coffee cup into an Olympic size swimming pool of CO2. It is nothing. You really think punishing Canadians will make any difference?
