  1. One of these things is not like the other...


  2. Carrier has done well for themselves to get $7 million while shipping 1,300 jobs to Mexico. That's a well run company.
  3. Final kick at the can.


  4. And there you go again thinking it's all about BC with a little bit of Alberta. It's about Quebec and their 75 seats. There will be "new" pipelines in the west and none in the east. C'mon man, you gotta skate to where the puck is gonna be not ....
  5. I think it is a judgement thing. Some people have it and the moderators here apparently have little. There, I said it. Give your head a frigging shake man - I'd take 3 BC Chicks over one Turk any day.
  6. Read all that I have posted in this thread to see that you have been thoroughly refuted and your hypocrisy was exposed from page one. No point repeating myself anymore.
  7. There's those wheels of denial twirling again.
  8. He's not a god. He's a guy who observes football in a systemic evidence based way so he can talk about the game in an intelligent, probability based way. Which is much more intelligent than 99.99% of the sports media out there.
  9. In other words: he's a different kind of unelected dictator so it's okay for Harper to say nice things about him. What's that saying? When people are presented with evidence that runs contrary to their beliefs they either change their mind or get busy on the proof so they do not have to change their mind. Let's say I'm not surprised: Derek wisely stopped arguing the differences between Harper and Trudeau long ago while you continue to try and find differences. You're religious, him not so much. That's the way of the world for those who prefer to make up their minds based on evidence versus those who rely on faith.
  10. Ignore the conflicts of intetest and the need for a blind trust. Nothing to see. Why don't you play this game for a while....

      Just look for the raw chicken.

  11. I have done/seen both on twitter with no incident so you're full of it.
  12. Didn't realize they were that conservative. In Cambodia I am expecting to be able to wear shorts (to my knees) and open toed birks to go through various temples at Angkor Wat. But I won't be able to hold hands with the wife nor kiss her in public so there is a price to pay.... Man I hate conservatism... which is why I travel, so I can see what a crock of poop it is.
  13. I love the conservative response though: it ain't built yet, it's going to take years to build so it isn't going to be built at all.... Well, maybe that will be the case but it wasn't going to be built without approval from cabinet in the first place and Trudeau may have found a reasonable compromise to achieve pipelines through a carbon tax. But that is probably why it is so unpalatable to conservatives. They hate a carbon tax even if that's what it will take to get some pipelines going. And I notice a certain someone in this thread wants Trudeau to fail with the environmentalists help as he thinks this will somehow lead to an embrace of a conservative run government with endless pipelines. It would be funny if Trudeau fails and it leads to an embrace of an NDP government. Poetic justice.
  14. Who knows, maybe there will be 72 Breitbart virgins waiting for him in their parents basements?
  15. The horror, the horror. None of which prevents anyone from burning a Canadian flag if they wanted to. Or, prevents anonymous people on the internet from whining incessantly about these types of things.
  16. 2. Everyone has the following fundamental freedoms: (a) freedom of conscience and religion; (b) freedom of thought, belief, opinion and expression, including freedom of the press and other media of communication; (c) freedom of peaceful assembly; and (d) freedom of association. 2(b) is good enough.
  17. Then Rome/Malta it is! Malta is a short flight and only about $200 round trip from Rome so why not add it on as an extra couple of days or instead of Venice? Ok, I have not been yet but my research indicates that it should be sort of like Rhodos on Rhodes in Greece which is awesome. You are already in that part of the world so why not take advantage?
  18. Well, if it is being worn by a Buddhist with a point to prove then good luck stopping it.
  19. 1) Maybe those 2nd amendment people could take care of the 1st amendment people, I mean, maybe, I don't know. 2) Once Trump replaces Scalia then this will all be "automatic." 3) Oh, wait, Scalia was a 1ster: http://www.cnn.com/videos/tv/2016/02/13/scalia-burning-flag-piers-intv.cnn/video/playlists/supreme-court-justice-antonin-scalia-dead/ 4) Next thing you know, cartoons of a certain prophet will be banned too....
  20. Sounds good but why not Venice and Malta before they both sink into the sea?
  21. Blah blah blah plenty of reasons to think Canadians are willing to find a balance between pipelines, carbon taxes and public policy: http://abacusdata.ca/climate-carbon-and-pipelines-a-path-to-consensus/ Trudeau needs to be the carbon tax in gear and everything will be fine. Much ado about nothing.
  22. This. Seems so pragmatic and yet it drives the pro-natives in a tizzy. Keeping schools secular means not having kids participate (especially without parents consent). And to think, had SD#70 not done the smudge ritual and then had another religious ceremony in January then this issue would never have happened. I will remind people of the links earlier in this thread that, if read, indicate that the "busybody" mother, as ?Impact like to claim in his ad hominem way, filed the legal complaint after and because of the second breach of secularism.
  23. Agreed. After going to communist Laos and Vietnam (and going back to Vietnam in December) and seeing first hand, including X-mas decorations and lights all over the place, I think people who have not traveled are so insular as to be borderline ignorant of what actually goes on in these countries. Not perfect, not great, but not the communist "big brother" waste land fed to them by anti-communist propagandists.
  24. Gotta love it: no matter what he does, Trudeau is always doing the wrong thing. Fine with me, as long as you guys want to focus on non-stories like this then it only serves to make you look partisan and petty. What's wrong? Can't find anything of real substance to criticize a sitting government with? Well, you're in luck as there are announcements to be had later today. Maybe that will work in your favour.
  25. Not really. I checked out some sources prior to the manufactured controversy and it was no big deal. His comments even fit in with some other world leaders. Then the #Trudeaueulogies happened and that got some press - all manufactured from the hypocrites like Derek and Betsy who will defend Harper's words about King Abdullah while criticizing Trudeau for saying similar things about Castro. It's the hypocrisy by them that I find so appalling - such partisan BS over something that amounts to a tempest in a teapot. No one of note, especially anyone overseas, is going to care about this story in a month.
