  1. Poll: Do you agree with GOP chairman's move to hold FBI director Wray in contempt over Biden documents? Why do you take this position? This is hot, like a freshly baked loaf of bread. ⬆️ 📰 Full Article: https://apnews.com/article/fbi-subpoena-biden-family-republicans-whistleblower-allegations-8dded7d781d8daf3f86343b72423b968
  2. ⬆️ Trending via The New York Times: FBI makes arrests over alleged secret CCP 'police stations' in New York. Secret Police Stations were revealed in Canada too: https://www.cbc.ca/news/canada/british-columbia/chinese-police-station-folo-1.6691240 Poll: In your opinion -> How serious is China's breach in US and Canada? Options: Very serious Somewhat serious Not serious Other
  3. Toronto - A community is sounding concerned after a number of attacks by off-leash dogs on school property outside of school hours, at least one of them resulting in serious injuries. A group of students were at the school playing when an off-leash dog approached them and bit one of the students in the face. Full Article: https://www.cp24.com/news/community-urged-to-use-extreme-caution-after-boy-mauled-by-off-leash-dog-in-schoolyard-1.6401411 My understanding there is a bylaw in place, the Poll question is: Should the practice of allowing dogs to be off-leash near school premises be classified as a criminal offense?
  4. Toronto police have arrested a suspect in connection with two “random attacks” on the subway earlier this week. Brandonn Sevilla-Zelaya, 25, of Toronto, was arrested on Saturday and has been charged with robbery, assault causing bodily harm and uttering threat. Police say Sevilla-Zelaya is accused of attacking two passengers on the subway at Kennedy Station. The first incident happened on Dec. 15, at around 10 p.m., when the suspect allegedly approached a male passenger and began attacking him with unprovoked punches. Roughly an hour later, the suspect approached a female passenger on the subway again at Kennedy Station, and began attacking her by shaking her, police said. The suspect then allegedly stole her headphones and threatened her. The charges against Sevilla-Zelaya have not been proven in court. He is scheduled to appear at Old City Hall Saturday morning. The incidents follow a number of recent violent acts on the subway system. Last week, 31-year-old Vanessa Kurpiewska was stabbed to death near High Park Station, and in another incident a Toronto Transit Commission operator was assaulted and robbed at the Long Branch Loop in Etobicoke. https://www.cp24.com/news/suspect-arrested-after-two-random-attacks-on-toronto-subway-1.6199172 Also in July --> A woman has died nearly a month after being set on fire at Kipling station, also in Toronto. --- --> I sometimes take the public transit in a major city in Canada, seen my fair share, 1 story in particular was when one gentleman boarded a bus, I was only a few stations away from home, I already could picture myself listening to some jazz but this gentleman decided to join the bus. At one point randomly this person decided to take out an object and proceeded to say that he will do harm. The people that were up front jumped like chickens. I was taught to not move so focused my attention in the phone. Was way on the back. The bus driver did not say a word. The gentleman then proceeded to head out to the street and threaten the initial occupants of the bus. He then proceeded to cross the street. Some passengers returned in the bus. Have no idea if a report was filled. The shocking part is how people were not really talking about what just happened. Just another day. --- --> Is hard to say what the solutions are. The shelter system is full, the mental hospitals were tried in the past, is the way society is. When the economy is not well, more people live in the public transit out of desperation however that is not an excuse for criminal behaviour. What are some solutions? Tougher laws? More housing?
  5. ⬆️ DeSantis signs a bill that bans Chinese citizens from buying land in Florida. Some critics say the measure discriminates. Poll: Do you agree? Should other States follow? or do you take the side of the critics? Why? https://www.axios.com/local/tampa-bay/2023/05/08/florida-ron-desantis-china-property
  6. Not sure what is happening in Florida today, first this story in the morning: Principal & Elon Musk. Now, a Florida woman was arrested and charged with battery on an elected official after she allegedly threw a glass of wine at Rep. Matt Gaetz, R-Fla., according to the Walton County Sheriff's Office. Yes, I know about Gaetz's issues with women however the law decided that he will not be charged, so looking to see if anyone will defend this assault. Do you accept such vigilantism?! It Is irrelevant the man's politics. In my opinion, people like Gaetz should be cleaning cars for a living or taking care of an internet Café, however, at the end of the day, he is an elected official by a community, he went through a process, and he is not a criminal, so why exactly should this behavior be accepted - throwing of the drink (assault)? I don't accept it, hope the law acts the same if someone throws the drink toward -> Gaetz or <- AOC. How about you?
  7. Trending via The Washington Post. Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas accepted luxury trips around the globe for more than two decades, including travel on a superyacht and private jet, from a prominent Republican donor without disclosing them, according to a new report. Any opinions?
  8. Poll: Should Ontario license plate covers to foil red light cameras be banned? I got this idea from an article that was trending in the Toronto Star: Thousands of Ontario drivers illegally use license plate covers to foil red light cameras - so why are stores allowed to sell them? https://www.thestar.com/business/2023/03/15/licence-to-obscure-plate-covers-are-illegal-to-use-in-ontario-so-why-are-stores-allowed-to-sell-them.html One thing that came to mind is that they can be useful in protecting license plates from wear and tear. So how can you ban something if the intent can not necessarily be criminal?
  9. Dalai Lama apologises after kissing boy and asking him to ‘suck his tongue.’ https://www.theguardian.com/world/2023/apr/10/dalai-lama-apologises-kissing-boy-suck-his-tongue-video Should the Dalai Lama be arrested?
  10. ⬆️ Trending via Axios Federal judge rules to freeze use of abortion pill nationwide. A federal judge in Texas on Friday moved to force the Food and Drug Administration to pull its approval of a drug widely used in medication abortion, throwing its availability into doubt. The judge ruled that the preliminary injunction would take effect in seven days, allowing for the Biden administration to seek emergency relief. Attorney General Merrick Garland said in a statement the Justice Department will appeal and seek a stay. ---> The debate is raging online, with many pointing out that the Judge is a Trump appointee. There is a process in place, there will be an appeal. The media (read the full article for this or Google It) seems to be playing as MAGA Trump, not as foul mouthed or thuggish, but they are quick to politicise the judicial system when a decision comes in that some do not like. Eventually, I have no doubt that after appeals, and if not now, very soon, a resolution will be found, but now would like to stop and notice the hypocrisy of some in the media. What is your opinion?
  11. First, let me start by giving my opinion, that I do not like superficial slogans which involve no thinking, but this debate is more than a slogan. From the Libertarians, reason.com: Last year, a Michigan middle school forced two students to remove their "Let's Go Brandon" sweatshirts because they violated a dress code rule prohibiting clothing with "profane" slogans. The students have now filed a lawsuit against their school with the support of the Foundation for Individual Rights and Expression (FIRE), a First Amendment nonprofit. Poll: Should schools be ALLOWED TO FORCE students to remove clothing with potentially controversial slogans? Options: 1. Yes 2. No 3. It depends on the situation 4. Other
  12. Walt Disney Co. is suing Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis (R) over what it calls a “relentless campaign to weaponize government power” — a major escalation of the year-long clash between the entertainment giant and conservative governor. via Google Also, there are some rumours that "Florida Gov. DeSantis said he may put a prison next to Disney parks amid dispute" , however those rumours are only trending in the <-- left wing media. Will check for confirmation on who said that, later on, unless someone knows. --- Poll: Disney or Ron Gov. Ron DeSantis of Florida? Who do you support?
  13. ⬆️ Trending Democratic-backed Milwaukee County Circuit Judge Janet Protasiewicz has won a crucial seat on the Wisconsin Supreme Court, defeating Republican-backed former Wisconsin Supreme Court Justice Dan Kelly. The Associated Press called the race. The elections in Wisconsin were supposed to be non-partisan, however seeing this campaign, just speaks volumes to the ideological battle amongst Judges too.
  14. This poll is based on the Trending Article from the CBC: Renters being asked for SIN, driver's licence and other sensitive information by some landlords. ---> Do you agree with renters being asked for SIN, driver's licence and other sensitive information by landlords? I personally do not rent out. I have a small bachelor style hideout that I don't use. However, after reading some horror stories and talking to others, I have become more aware of the risks involved in renting out property. It's disheartening to see the lengths that some people will go to in order to avoid paying rent, especially during these difficult times when many landlords are struggling to make ends meet. I've also seen campaigns encouraging tenants to withhold rent, which I find puzzling given the financial support that many people have received during the pandemic, such as the CERB. Some horror stories: The Professional Tenant: In Canada, a landlord named Nina Willis rented out her basement apartment to a tenant who presented herself as a well-educated and successful businesswoman. However, after several months, Willis discovered that the tenant was actually a professional scammer who had been evicted from multiple properties for not paying rent.The tenant even went as far as to forge a fake employment letter and credit report to trick Willis into renting to her. Ultimately, Willis had to go through an expensive legal battle to get the tenant out of her property. The Squatter: In New York City, a man named Peter Liang rented out his $3 million apartment to a tenant named Lisa Palmer. However, when the lease ended, Palmer refused to leave and claimed squatter's rights. Liang was forced to go through an expensive and time-consuming eviction process to get her out of the apartment. The Non-Payer: In England, a landlord named Fergus Wilson had to evict a tenant who hadn't paid rent for over two years. The tenant, had managed to stay in the property by making numerous excuses and ignoring court orders. Wilson estimated that he lost over £20,000 in rent and legal fees during the ordeal. *** Many landlords have had positive experiences with tenants who pay rent on time, take good care of the property, and communicate effectively. That's just my ignorance up there. 😎
  15. The justice overseeing the hush money case, Judge Merchan, said he would not issue a gag order at this time but advised against statements that could cause “civil unrest.” What is your opinion? ---> Should the judge impose a media gag order for Trump? It seems as a few hours ago, The Trump family went low, Donald Trump Jr. shared on social media a picture of the daughter of Judge Merchan, as he claimed that his father was being subjected to a “hand-picked Democrat show trial.” I don't understand the MAGA people, this case is weak, is increasing Donald's popularity, yet they chose to go after a Judge via an online posting?! Yah, okii, we will see how that plays out long term.
  16. Utah became the first state to enact legislation that restricts children and teens from using social media without their parent's consent. Driving the news: Gov. Spencer Cox (R) signed two bills into law aimed at limiting when and where anyone younger than 18 years old can interact online, and to stop companies from luring minors to certain websites. Details: Under the law that's due to take effect on March 1, 2024, social media companies will have to instate a curfew for minors in the state, barring them from using their accounts from 10:30 p.m. to 6:30 a.m. https://www.axios.com/2023/03/24/utah-limit-kids-social-media Do you agree?
  17. LIVE: Trump's arraignment. Poll: What will happen? *Multiple choices: Options: The proceedings will move forward in a standard manner, without any significant disruptions or surprises Trump may use the opportunity to make a speech, which could potentially agitate his supporters and provoke further political tension It is possible that new evidence may be presented during the proceedings, which could influence the ultimate outcome of the trial Other, say it in the comments Fox News: Sky News:
  18. Poll: Will Trump benefit politically from an arrest? Elon Musk also predicted if a real image surfaces with his arrest, he will most likely be President. Do you agree with this? Ok, so the previous federal prosecutor and the one before him did not want the case of him paying an adult star (yes I know the money used is the issue, but most people see only the surface). Yes No Other, add a comment. My opinion is that yes, he will benefit from this, any bad publicity is good publicity for MAGA. 87.3M of Cultists and rising. By the way these are FAKE AI pictures generated, can you imagine if he will decide to get into a brawl with the cops for rating?
  19. ⬆️ Trending on a few media outlets. Poll: Should the below man, which did the shooting be charged? A Texas man whose truck was stolen used an Apple AirTag to track down the missing vehicle and shoot the man suspected of taking it, according to San Antonio police. Andrew John Herrera, 44, died of a gunshot wound to the head. The Bexar County Medical Examiner ruled the death a homicide, KSAT reports. It’s unclear if the person who fired on the alleged thief will face criminal charges. The Police Department spokesperson said: “If you are to get your vehicle stolen, I know it’s frustrating, but please do not take matters into your own hands like this." Apple condemned the shooting.
  20. CSI, CSI: New York, CSI: Miami, CSI: Cyber, NCSI, Law and Order. I have an Amazon Prime account and signed up for a bunch of free trials with different channels. The above are listed as free for 30 days. Never got into the CSI type of shows, I did see them on TV once in a while when I was at hotels travelling. Always confusing, that there are so many of them. I don't have the time to watch all of them before the 30 days expire, so if you had to choose, which one is better quality in terms of the storylines?
  21. Prosecutors Signal Criminal Charges for Trump Are Likely. Breaking now via NY Times. CBS News also reports: "Manhattan prosecutors invited Trump to testify, sources say, indicated he may be indicted". https://www.nytimes.com/2023/03/09/nyregion/trump-potential-criminal-charges-bragg.html
  22. ⬆️ Trending via Sky News New CCTV footage released of Irvo Otieno 'smothered to death' by police. Surveillance video from a state psychiatric hospital in Virginia shows a group of sheriff’s deputies and medical staff members piling on a handcuffed man, Irvo Otieno, and pinning him on the floor for around 11 minutes, until his death. The video is in this article: https://news.sky.com/story/new-cctv-fotage-released-of-man-smothered-to-death-by-us-police-12839876 We have a debate going on this website about issues with the police: https://repolitics.com/forums/topic/43555-what-is-the-issue-with-policing-in-the-usa/ Possible protests to follow in my estimation.
  23. The former US president has posted in ALL - CAPS on his Truth Social platform that he expected to be “ARRESTED ON TUESDAY” and called for his supporters to engage in protests. Will people go out and protest for Trump on Tuesday? Yes, No or other? Also, are the MAGAs on this website, on Tuesday, will you go out for your boss or just noise of keyboard again, like always? If you do go out, just remember what will happen if you cross the line: https://www.fbi.gov/wanted/capitol-violence
  24. Amendment XIV, Section 1, Clause 1 of the U.S. Constitution directs that all persons born in the United States are U.S. citizens. This is the case regardless of the tax or immigration status of a person's parents. What is your view on Natural-Born Citizen Clause?
  25. You know what I find interesting, all you MAGAs and right-wing populists on this website. ---> All you do is bait, rant, swear, there are 1-2 that you can actually have a conversation with, however, the rest are sex talks, gender talks, and putting up wallpapers done by Paint. When there is to do real work, like post a thread about your side, crickets. I will do it, even though, I think Biden, considering the VP that he had and his age, has done an OK job. but, like every politician, things are starting to come out and are popular in the news now. It does not concern him directly, is about Hunter Biden, still. ⬆️ Trending via USA Today House GOP: Hunter Biden, and others got $1.3M from a business associate linked to China
