  1. My friend, you seem to be under the impression that there are bad and good nations to cheer and boo at. I’m afraid that there are few few good nations left, and the US is no better than Russia or China. Canada? We are too apathetic to matter.
  2. I don’t have any crabs, I can promise you that! I think Putin is trying to come up with the acronym, “BRICSCHITHOUSE.”
  3. Of course you are. You’re the one who started a thread on the collapse of the Russian army, last September or so. The point being, your judgement is pretty sketchy…
  4. Uh, why what? Could you clarify? I'm not sure whether you should be frightened and your political leanings are irrelevant in this case. Perhaps just go back to you crab pot thingy.
  5. https://www.cnn.com/2023/08/24/business/saudi-arabia-brics-invitation-intl/index.html In a video message, Russian President Vladimir Putin congratulated the new BRICS members, adding that the bloc’s global influence would continue to grow. “I would like to congratulate the new members who will work in a full-scale format next year,” Putin said. “And I would like to assure all our colleagues that we will continue the work that we started today on expanding the influence of BRICS in the world,” the Russian president added. This has major international implications, as the largest trading block in the world gets larger. For instance, they want to issue their own currency, gold backed. This alone would crash the current internationally used currency, the US dollar.
  6. https://www.cnbc.com/amp/2023/08/23/european-pmis-for-august-show-steep-downturn-.html "The downward pressure on the economy of the euro zone in August stems mainly from the German service sector which switched from growth to contraction at an unusual pace," Rubia said, adding that reduced output in manufacturing also adds to the argument that Germany is becoming "the sick man of Europe."
  7. https://www.reuters.com/world/china/china-evergrande-files-protection-us-court-part-32-bln-debt-overhaul-2023-08-18/ HONG KONG/NEW YORK, Aug 18 (Reuters) - Embattled developer China Evergrande Group (3333.HK) has filed for U.S. bankruptcy protection as part of one of the world's biggest debt restructurings, as anxiety grows over China's worsening property crisis and its impact on the weakening economy. China unexpectedly lowered several key interest rates earlier this week in a bid to shore up struggling activity and is expected to cut prime loan rates on Monday, but analysts say moves so far have been too little, too late, with much more forceful measures needed to stem the economy's downward spiral. This has been a long time coming for Evergrande, and it is a sign of worsening conditions in China. It’s a very provocative development when you consider that the BRICS nations are meeting tomorrow and rumour has it they may be admitting more countries such as Saudi Arabia. They also are looking at issuing a new gold backed currency. And what might that do to the US dollar?
  8. You think HIlary was standing by her man when she said, she wasn't standing by her man like Tammy Wynette. That's all I'm saying. You are misunderstanding what Hilary meant back in the 90's.
  9. Uh, Hilary said that she wouldn't stand by her man like Tammy Wynette. So your statement makes no sense. I think you completely misremember what was meant by Mrs. Clinton, or perhaps you never knew. If you get a chance, read up on that now, and the retort by Tammy W.
  10. Sorry to realize that you’ve fallen off the wagon. Remember, the longest journey begins with one step.
  11. No, the UFOs scare me. You, on the other hand, make me laugh. Keep up the good work on your battle with the bottle komrad, posting here 100’s of times per week is probably good therapy for you.
  12. I laughed at the title of this thread several months ago, saying it was the longest collapse of a major power’ army in history. Apparently some are still under the delusion that the Russian army is collapsing(yeah, that’s why the US sent over cluster bombs). I give you Newsweek, and an article that says out loud that the Ukraine offensive went nowhere. And it’s NATO’s fault. https://www.newsweek.com/ukraine-counteroffensive-russia-plan-zelensky-putin-1814291 “Ukraine's previous offensives were successful last year when faced with Russian forces who were thinly spread out and struggling with logistical and command difficulties. Now Ukraine is advancing against well-prepared Russian defenses. Kyiv's new Western-supplied weaponry has been met by valleys of trenches dug by Russians along the 600-mile front line. These include minefields, anti-tank ditches and "dragon's teeth"—square-pyramidal shaped pieces of concrete used to stop military vehicles.” Now, moonboy’s opinions aside, does that sound like a collapsing Russian army?
  13. The deliberate moves toward a digital currency have been occurring for about a decade. Probably many moves and preparations done before then too. CBDC's will be introduced using the carrot and stick approach. An economic crisis will come, and the governments will say, "We want to get the money in your hands(the public) but its going to take too long. Here's a new way we can get it to you. Simply sign up on this Gov website, agree to all of the stipulations(there will be many pages that no one will read), and we can get you this money TODAY and you can spend it out of your account TODAY!" The stick part will be that the money has to be spent within a certain time or it will disappear. Plus it can't be spent on certain things. Very few people will realize that the ability to see what you are spending this money on, or not spending it at all, is something that the government has never been able to do before(except for cash, of course). The dark side of CBDC. A few people will probably get their accounts frozen, but they will be painted as extremist conspiracy theorists by the media. Cash will remain, but more and more stories in the news will appear on how antiquated cash money is, how it's causing so many problems. The young already are programmed to not use cash, its just the old that have to be programmed on the dangers of the germs that cash carries, etc, to be willing to give it up. And other "news" stories exposing "extremists" that are hoarding cash, etc. People are so easy to program now that everyone has a smart phone to do the work. Will this work, this transfer of our economic rights over to the government? That depends on us.
  14. We need leaders that aren't WEF stooges. Hold fast, it's going to take more time but Canadians will start to realize that they've been had.
  15. US policy was not to interfere in an investigation into Hunter Biden. That was Joe’s policy.
  16. When Biden said in the video that he would withold funds unless Ukraine would do his bidding, was he lying?
  17. https://www.cnbc.com/2023/06/20/hunter-biden-to-plead-guilty-to-federal-criminal-tax-charges.html And if they can go after Hunter, they can go after Big Papa. The Hunter becomes the hunted.
  18. https://beta.ctvnews.ca/local/edmonton/2023/5/29/1_6418233.amp.html Danielle Smith's United Conservative Party won a majority government in Alberta late Monday night. The NDP managed to steal several seats in the province's 87-seat legislature, including in Sherwood Park and Calgary. Good news for conservatives across the nation. A win, but many more to fight.
  19. And notice that when the left doesn’t have the facts or truth on their side, they go into argue mode and fill up the thread with bickering nonsense.
  20. Ah yes, the non specific response. I made several points so I have no idea which point or points you are referring to. Which is what's needed to properly respond to you. I'm going to go ahead and recommend that you keep on living in fear until you get over yourself, which most likely will never happen until you are pushing up daisies.
  21. It's interesting how you can get triggered. Why don't you tell me whether you agree or disagree with what I've said?
  22. Interesting responses. There seems to be a consensus that things will be worse in the next 5 years. I have a friend who surfs the dark web, as he calls it, and from what he tells me I suspect there is a lot of fearmongering going on there, and a lot of propaganda. And whatever your perspective, I think we can agree that our media sources are also rife with fear and propaganda. Fear of climate. Fear of people. Fear of the future. I would submit that fear has always been pushed on the public, and used to get specific results. That makes such fear a form of propaganda. Think about that.
  23. Wow, there’s a lot of drama in this thread, although I have to award bonus points for the BAT GUANO reference. If the left would just calm down, and refrain from being common, I’m sure the right would do likewise. I pick on the left since your side tends to think of themselves as having more intelligence than the ‘Fox watching’ right. If you’re smarter, then let’s see some of this higher intellect in action.
  24. I can always count on you for the fake news, or deep state version. Thank you for that.
