  1. Yes. They were. And the "population" didn't need Obama to get "riled up". Everyone with a conscience and who isn't willfully ignorant saw those incidents as unjustified.
  2. Such a "right" thing to do.... ....blame the guy who spoke about the unjustified murders, rather than the guys who committed them...
  3. Right. Their deaths had no effect whatsoever....
  4. I live in LNG country. No-one here looks at it as something that will "solve all our problems". It's a piece of the puzzle.
  5. Agreed. I don't know that we're necessarily on the same page about what form that action should take, but at least this is something we can agree on.
  6. I understand how supply and demand works. I just don't agree that the NDP measures will decrease demand enough to make the difference that you're hoping for.
  7. I just don't think such a measure will have the effect that you think it does. I didn't really pay attention because i don't live in Vancouver, but would you say that Christy's tax on foreign buyers had much effect on prices?
  8. I don't see how a new house tax is going to lower housing prices, but at least you're actually addressing the point and we can agree to disagree on this point.
  9. So? Is this what you believe will lower housing costs?
  10. Not really sure what this has to do with anything I have said. we all get that you hate Christy and to be honest, I'm not really a fan either. However, this is all beside the point that I was making. Electing Horgan isn't likely to lower housing costs in Vancouver. If you have a rebuttal to that statement, then I'd certainly be interested in debate, but I'm not really interested in etting into strawmen arguments.
  11. All of that sounds good. However, my main point is that I think there's very little that premier can do to affect the housing market in a city like Vancouver.
  12. Definitely easier and I think it's probably going t happen. however, if you think a change in BC's ruling party is somehow going to make it easier to buy a home in Vancouver I think you're in for some disappointment.
  13. You'll be waiting a long time, I'm afraid. I'm not an idiot and I know what assault is and isn't. You're late to the party, but if you care to go back through the thread, you'll see that I've never accused Trump of assault in any form. Insult, OTOH.....
  14. I remember (years ago actually) seeing an interview with an expert in cyber-security. (I believe he was a former American Intelligence agent) He said the next global conflict wouldn't be started by a world power, or even some tin pot dictator like Kim. It wouldn't even take the form of a proxy war, similar to what we're seeing right now in Syria. His conjecture was that WWIII would be started by some pissed off hacker(s) who would use their "skills" to bring down the world's banking institutions and mess with infrastructure, such as power grids and communications. I don't believe that the actions we're currently seeing in the Middle East and the Korean peninsula will result in global conflict, (I believe that cooler heads will eventually prevail) but it doesn't mean that we don't live in a very scary world. Further to that, I agree with Toews' point that Climate Change is an issue with potentially disastrous consequences, especially when the leader of one the planet's biggest CO2 emitters is a CC denier.
  15. Tell you what: I'll admit I missed the reference to Brown. Are you going to back up your claim about Trudeau assalting a woman, or would you prefer to back off of it?
