    I woulda gone with "it doesn't say gov't controlled or the like, but it should."

    Honestly - i don't think it is.  If that were the case it would be simple - change gov'ts.  I think they ARE independent but they have DECIDED that the prefer one gov't over others and they collude to benefit that gov't at every turn.

    And that's a bigger problem, because there's no fixing that. They are WILLFULLY partisan - the only thing you can do at that point is burn it down.

    Bill Clinton ran as two totally different Presidents

    in the first term he ran as a left wing Democrat

    but to win the second term, he flipped and became a de facto Republican 

    Bill Clinton's chief strategist coined it "the Pivot"

    With respect to this specific issue I think he also realized during his first term that the horror he had given birth to with the subprime market where even LOOKING for a job was good enough to get a mortgage could only end one way and he tried to dial it back. But - dems had the bit in their teeth, it was very popular, they didn't think these days of milk and honey would ever end.

    actually, that was the Republicans too

    Nope. Brought in by the dems, held in place by the dems till it was too late. Bush tried.

    Newt Gingrich pounded on Bill Clinton relentlessly

    until Bill Clinton decided he had to "pivot" and adopt all the Republican policies

    This was a democrat move exclusively and the republicans tried to fight it like hell.

    9 minutes ago, Dougie93 said:

    even the temporary Assault Weapons Ban backfired massively in the Republicans favour

    That's true. But that's largely because the dems didn't understand what they were doing at all. "the shoulder thingie that goes up".

    it was when the Democrats passed the AWB, that Americans decided they had to have AR15s

    AR15's were not actually popular at all, until the Democrats tried to ban them

    A common story . Nothing sells guns like a rumour of a ban.

    can't think of a single thing the Democrats have won, since 1980

    High risk subprime mortgages for everyone. They fought for that and won. "Everyone should have a home".  Mind you that lead directly to the crash in 08 which took down teh whole world with it but by god they won it and nobody was taking it away. (Clinton regretted it and tried to undo it with no luck).

    so Finland joining NATO puts a very large NATO ground force on the Russian border in of itself

    Finland is now the biggest & baddest NATO ground force at high readiness, except for Poland perhaps

    But but but but you said they didn't matter, it was all kgb lies, nato is an ocean force blah blah,

    Thanks for stating what i said in the beginning - Finland joining nato  is bad news for the russians. Glad you leraned something here. Maybe next time read up on it before disagreeing.

    there's no requirement to be loyal to Confederation in Canada

    That just means you won't get arrested for your disloyalty.  Which is fair, you shouldnt be forced to be loyal. But that doesn't make it any less odious or make you any less disloyal. It just means it's legal.

  7. You can't really compare someone who gets 5 percent of their revenues to someone who gets 70 percent.

    Personally - i think the 'state funded' nametag should be reserved for those cases where removal of that funding would require the station to shut down a substantal part of it's services.  If PBS for example lost 5 percent of it's revenues it would have to do some belt tightening and maybe make it up with more donations elsewhere, But they'd survive just fine.  If cbc lost 70 percent of it's revenue it's done - close up the shop and turn out the lights, except for perhaps a few podcasts or radio.

    Yeah - posting a wikipedia page that doesn't actually address the issue doesn't make your argument.

    You either call people a nazi directly or if you think it's going to be hard to sell that you call them a nazi indirectly by claiming they think exactly like  a nazi or that they've elected nazis.  Everyone's a nazi to you except your own tribe - the conservatives, men, whites, definitely the jews, any non-woke media or talk personality, virtualy everyone.

    It makes you a bad person. Your hatred and bigotry are  no different than that of the slave owners, or the actual nazis, or the communists during the revolution. It's all about hatred and demanding that "the other" is a lesser, barely-human and there fore deserves to be mistreated. For their own good i suppose.

    It's odious.

    HAAAAAHAHAHAHAAHA - well there you go :)  If something that would take up half a page is too much for you to get through then i guess an actual book or the like would kill you :) NO wonder you're so misinformed,  if it won't fit into a tik tok it's too much for your brain to cope with :)

    Poor little thing :) I hope like hell you're pretty.

    In the final analysis, I could care less who InBev partners with because, in the grand scheme of things, it doesn't affect me personally.

    Sure. This is more of an exercise in analyzing a current social and economic phenomenon than something that's going to impact you or me terribly. It will affect some significantly but not the majority of people. Tomorrow, there will still be beer.

    2 hours ago, CrakHoBarbie said:

    You, and your alt-right brethren, on the other hand, have taken this partnership personally..... It's not personal.... It's just business....... InBev's business...... And you may hem and haw all year long saying you've bothered posting because InBev blablabla..... But the real reason this bugs you and your pals, is because you're transphobic. You just can't stand to see a company whose products you may or may not use, partner with a trans woman.

    Careful - you're letting your hypocrisy show. Not to mention a little bigotry and hatred.  You give your inability to be couth and rational about this away with talk of how "myself and my pals" are transphobic and terrible people blah blah.

    I don't care that bud did this, it wouldn't influence me one way or another to buy their product. I wouldn't care if any of the companies i do favor did it. SO - swing and a miss there kiddo. That's what happens when you let hate guide your thinking, you make mistakes.

    Further as i said i doubt it's all about transphobia - but your hatred of anyone who doesn't share your views leads you to decide it is because those are by definition terrible people. But the evidence doesn't point to that.

    So keep up the whining.

    I expect nothing more from you.

    Of course you don't - as a hatemonger and bigot you expect the worst of people you consider 'lesser' humans and if they don't conform to your ideology well.... you'll just say they did right? :)

    At the end of the day you know i'm correct and it's pissing you off. That's not a good reason to be angry at me. I'm just speaking truth to power.

    Here are some of the companies that conservatives tried, and failed, to cancel: Disney, Gillette, Starbuck's, Nike, Mr. Potato Head, Dr. Seuss, Netflix, Keurig, and most recently Anheuser-Busch.

    Despite the claims of "go woke, go broke" all of these companies are doing fine. Disney especially has been thriving, despite DeSantis' fashy attacks on them.

    ROFLMAO - remember when i told you that if you have to lie to make a point, you don't have a point? :)

    In each case you mentioned the companies took a MAJOR hit.  And didn't start recovering until AFTER the woke stopped.

    Disney - we discussed this just about a week ago right? they were making about 17 billion a year, the 'woke' scandal broke and they dived to 14 biliion or so, fired all the woke people eventually and NOW are climbing back up but they STILL haven't gotten to where they were.

    It's cost them billions and billions. And they stopped going woke to prevent going broke.

    Same with all the other ones you mentioned including bud lite - dropped about 8 BILLION in stock value overnight, massive sales losses. They then disavowed the woke, and they've got TRUMP BEGGING on their behalf for people to give them a break and forgive them.  They're STARTING to recover a little but still way below where they were

    in short - all of those companies took major hits and only started to recover AFTER the woke was fired.

    Get woke go broke. It's real and corporate america is learning the lesson. People are sick of the woke

    Canada is the monarchy

     

    No, Canada is Canada.

    And yes - here's your list of reasons you hate canada and feel it's ok to be disloyal to Canada and it IS nothing but a huge game with you.  Just like the "i don't know what you're talking about, oh actually i did all along" game.

    Twitter has put a "government-funded media" label on CBC's account in what is the latest move by the social media company to stamp public broadcasters with designations.

    "Government-funded media is defined as outlets where the government provides some or all of the outlet's funding and may have varying degrees of government involvement over editorial content," according to Twitter.

    National Public Radio in the U.S. announced earlier this month that it is leaving the platform after Twitter labelled its account as "state-affiliated media," saying that doing so undermines their credibility by "falsely implying that we are not editorially independent."

    U.S. public broadcaster PBS followed suit, also leaving Twitter after it received the "government-funded" stamp.

    Conservative Leader Pierre Poilievre recently called on Twitter CEO Elon Musk to add a "government-funded" label to accounts that promote "news-related" content from CBC.

    Reacting to the label being implemented on Sunday, Poilievre tweeted that the CBC has been "officially exposed" as "Trudeau propaganda, not news."

     

    they are not happy about this.  Frankly - i don't see why it's that big a deal, they are gov't funded with 3/4 of their money coming from the gov't, it doesn't say gov't controlled or the like, and it's entirely true. And it is worth noting that they do have a financial tether to the gov't, and whether the gov't has pull or not with them that relationship may very well colour their stories. Especially when one of the gov't contenders is running no de funding them.

    I've never declared myself to be disloyal to King Charles III ....

    No, just Canada.  And lookie there, you knew what i was talking about the entire time but were just playing childish games. Pretending that i never said that, which i'd very clearly done first sentence.

    You're a dishonest person as well as disloyal. shameful.

    Who? Name names.

    You for starters. And for normal people that'd be more than enough to feel horrific shame. And you obviously feel some considering the efforts your going through to cover up what you did followed by covering up the cover up. 

    But you know. And sooner or later - that's going to bug you, and the fact others know will bug you even more

    you don't state what I am supposedly disloyal to

    I am not bound to be loyal to something which doesn't exist

    It literally does specifically. So at this point you're just playing childish games. So - disloyal, dumb,and childish. Your parents must be so proud.

    Does anyone know what this dingbat is talking about? He's been going off like this for a coupe days now.

    Everyone knows. That's why nobody takes you seriously. You're pathetic. I mean who even does that? i'm sure all your kindergarten friends were impressed. 

    You think about what kind of person you've become when you go to sleep tonite.

    you can't say what it is

    It's like the first line i wrote about your disloyalty.  It's right there for everyone to see.

    This is what i mean - you blather like a retard and haven't got a clue.

    whatever - go to bed jr ,the adults are talking. Maybe tomorrow you can find a 5 year old with better reading skills to help you figure it out.

    Pathetic.

    you asserted that your opinion is true, which is a fallacy obviously, your opinion not being proof of anything

    that would make it unsubstantiated, not a logical fallacy. And that is only for such things that require proof. If i say "the sun will rise in the east tomorrow" and say "this is true", then you COULD say you didn't believe it without proof, but the rest of the world would know you were an !diot and that it's probably true.

    In either case however it is not a logical fallacy.  And you're still an !diot.

    you still won't say what it is I am supposed to be loyal to and how I am disloyal

    Of course i did. As i said earlier go back and read. Me typing it out again won't make it any easier for you to get your disloyal little brain around than the first time, will it.
