American Politics / Re: The Donald Trump Thread

As far as the demonstrators were concerned they were all Nazis and racists, though. The activist Left does not make fine distinctions in this regard.

Kind of like the right-wingers who fail to make any distinction between 'extremists' and Muslims.

There is supposed to be a rally in Vancouver over immigration. No doubt some of the people who would/will attend are unsavoury, but many will simply be opposing our current immigration system. But again, the Left is already describing it as a white nationalist rally.

This rally is co-organized by WCAI - Worldwide Coalition Against Islam - leader Joey DeLuca.   

[Coalition president Joey De Luca, a Calgary resident travelling to Vancouver for the rally, said Friday he was unable to explain why his vice-president promoted such messages online, a day after De Luca had insisted his group wasn’t racist and had nothing to do with white supremacy.

Earlier this week, Wielenga posted “14 WORDS” on his public Facebook profile, to which another Facebook user responded “1488” and “Hail victory brother,” prompting Wielenga to publicly endorse both comments by clicking “Like.”

These are coded terms commonly used by white supremacists and neo-Nazis, referring to the 14-word slogan “We must secure the existence of our people and a future for white children,” and “88,” which stands for “Heil Hitler” (using the number “8” to represent “H,” the eighth letter of the alphabet). “Hail victory” is the English translation of “Sieg heil,” a salute used in Nazi Germany.

The co-organizers are the Cultural Action Party, right up your political alley --
a registered B.C. Political Party, represent Canadian citizens who value and wish to retain Canada's traditional identity, heritage and official languages by way of the following:

Preserve and promote English, French and First Nations cultural heritage throughout society.
Ensure British Columbian residents receive priority regarding affordable housing, employment, education and medical services.
Legislate Canada’s official language of English as the official language of the province of British Columbia.
Restrict, regulate and tax foreign investment in residential, commercial and agricultural real estate.
Revise provincial immigration nominee programs to maximize economic benefit.
Maintain the separation of religion and state at all levels of government, judiciary, legal and educational institutions.
Reduce child poverty and address child abuse within province of British Columbia.
Commercial public signage to be inclusive of Canada’s official language of English.
Repeal carbon emissions taxation within province of British Columbia.
Support funding of Canada’s military and veteran services within their communities.

I really don't give a shit about Nazis and klukkers. There really aren't that many of them, especially in Canada. I do really care about freedom of speech, though, and the tendency of the Left to try to shut down any and all conservative demos, meetings or speeches with all-purpose labels and pejoratives.

Yet, you are very concerned about Muslim extremists in Canada, of which there are even less.  Why the double standard?

They make more sense from pretty much any perspective other than procreation, and that's the last thing we need right now.

Only whites need more procreation as I've heard we're on the endangered species list.   :o

I agree with MG.  White Supremacists, Nazis etc and their supporters are scum, but if an anti-fa hit first at any individual, that is on them. Non-violent confrontation is more effective at getting one's point across, imo.  Unfortunately people seem to be inherently violent, regardless of their political leanings.

Trump is still wrong for not coming down unequivocally on the alt-right.  If he had ever indicated a balanced viewpoint, then blame on both sides might possibly fly,  but his record reveals his actual intent in this instance.

So, uh... boss's wife had this idea that she wants to introduce me to someone.   This isn't a first... lots of people have tried to play matchmaker for me.  What's unique is that this is the first time someone has offered to introduce me to a woman.

I have had a strange tingly feeling for about 4 hours.  Not at the idea of meeting potentially a new partner. This isn't my first rodeo. It's different, hard to put into words. I feel ... accepted?

People I have worked with for a while and feel comfortable with know that I prefer to be with women... my first serious girlfriend even came to a company Christmas party one year. Nobody has said anything negative, at least while I was in earshot. Everybody is polite and tolerant and I even get some good-natured teasing from time to time. So it's not that I have felt negative feelings from my co-workers.  But this was different. This wasn't just tolerance, this was someone reaching out and acknowledging and accepting and supporting me for what I am, and it felt strangely wonderful in a way I had never expected.  A half hour after we had talked, I replayed the conversation in my head, and almost cried from happiness or relief or something. I felt as if some kind of weight had been removed from me. I didn't know I needed this in my life.   


This made me weepy, that such a normal thing for straight people would be so rare for gays. 

Two of my grandaughters date girls.  Both in high school, from small BC towns, one in the Okanagan and one in Northern BC, both girls seem pretty open about it.  That made menfeel good and pesuades me that acceptance will become the norm.

Srsly tho, I injest a lot of protein and calories because I am very active.  For about 10 years I've done physical labor and I carry more muscle than most women. But as I transition into a role where I am at a desk most of the time I won't burn as many calories as I do, so I will have to cut back. I am actually pretty concerned about this, because I know my body will still crave all those calories, even when I don't need them. If I don't manage my intake I'll balloon.


What's worse is when you hit that 'change of life' time, your metabolism begins to imitate a hibernating bear and eating anything but celery results in weight gain.

Michael's experience with unemployment sounds like a non-stop party.

My experiences with unemployment have generally consisted of non-stop stress over money mixed with periodic bouts of thinking about turning to a life of crime.


Your experience sounds much like mine.

pineapple has an enzyme that's actually trying to digest you. When you eat pineapple, it eats you back.
When can we expect the B-Grade horror movie to be released?  "Attack of the Hungry Pineapples - They'll Eat You Back!"

Stopped eating meat 10 days ago - just meat; still eating dairy and eggs, not to mention sugar, fat and all that other bad stuff.

Noticed in the first week that walking seemed easier, my body easier and lighter to move around.   Noticed that my usually very tight and painful thigh muscles are looser and not nearly as painful.  My wrist and forearms are also less sore and tight-feeling from my RSI.

Today I went on a lunchtime walk with a work colleague.  She noticed that even though it's smoky and I have asthma, I am walking much more quickly than I was a couple of weeks ago.  I'm surprised by this because due to some life-events, I have actually exercised less than usual for the past three weeks.

It's weird that they blocked the victim for reposting the messages but not the people who posted them.

Smokey enough in Surrey this afternoon to sting eyes.

No one has ever even implied that. It's just that this kind of thing rarely happens outside certain 'communities' mainly made up of swaggering, violent, macho men to whom women are there for breeding and cooking and nothing more.

If swaggering men who believe women are only there for breeding/cooking is the reason for rape, why do 20% of Canadian women still experience sexual assault?   

If rape is mainly a problem of societies/cultures who believe women should take the subordinate role, why aren't you directing your criticism to every single fundamentalist Christian group in Canada?  Jehovah's Witnesses, Mennonites, Mormons, Shakers, Quakers, Orthodox Catholics and Jews, Baptists - to name just a few?

I'll be straight - I thought about that, but, since Argus doesn't exist here, I've let it go.  It's very (very) on the line. 

For the record, I happen to like Argus, and I tend to agree with him more than I'm willing to admit.

Wasn't referring to Argus.

Christie Clark is resigning. This is probably pretty good news for Liberal supporters. She did a lot of harm for the party overall.

BF thinks she'll run for the Conservatives next election.

Okay, now I'm getting rid of some stuff....

How about all the posts criticizing a poster here for his role at a different forum?
