  1. Or just wait 3 months. Meanwhile in Mar-Lago, Three teenage boys have been arrested after inadvertently entering President Donald Trump's Florida resort with a loaded AK47 assault rifle. "They had no idea where they were," Mr Ogrodnick said, adding that they were lucky that Mr Trump's family was not there, as they might otherwise have been shot by the Secret Service. https://www.bbc.com/news/world-us-canada-53682608
  2. I've noticed it's kind of getting to the point where patriotism in the US is being linked exclusively to morons. Soon anyone seen as being patriotic will be seen as a moron. Dividing the country with identity politics has really weakened the American identity. If this isn't foreign interference to topple America, it's sure working out that way. Hard to imagine anyone with America's best interest in mind would do something so self destructive.
  3. In the 60s, anti-war protesters called for the abolition of arms. The same counter arguments were made then. If good people get rid of arms, bad people will take over. In hindsight, it is clear neither side were good. Power eventually corrupts. Turns out it's all a show to sell weapons. Maybe we shouldn't fall for the same trick again with police? I believe in theory the police are essential. But they created a culture with more loyalty to their symbolic badge than to the community. So it's not really the police we need. By definition it's a gang.
  4. There has been similar responses in other sports with little representation. NASCAR and Wallace, F1 and Hamilton and the NHL .Tiger Woods has been quiet but would get a similar response. Obviously a pattern. It is tremendously insulting to the courage of those speaking up at a time when their experience is what we are arguing about.
  5. Why do Conservative non-Americas continue to spout Trump Conservative American talking points even when most American Conservatives don't these days? Weird, right? It's increasingly clear how the information filters in. Through white nationalist, anti-muslim/immigration (Rebel Media) and other alt-right attention seekers. Doesn't take a lot to follow the breadcrumbs. Try your best to ignore it. They are obvious attempts to troll, attract attention and claim legitimacy because of acknowledgement.
  6. Nearing the end of the 1st term I think anyone paying attention can conclude Trump has been good for the economic futures of China, India, Russia, etc. Meanwhile in the US,
  7. Umbrella Man https://www.bbc.com/news/world-us-canada-53579099
  8. Scary in my opinion. Should be a reporting a good quarter (for executives and shareholders) because of quarantine. Investors will spin it positively despite the uncertainty in the world. Apparently the only economic constant in a pandemic is that executives still get bonuses and workers still get screwed.
  9. Gold hit 1900 today. First time since the 2011 US credit rating downgrade. It will probably hit an all time high soon. Never a good sign.
  10. A cool drone light show over Seoul to thank workers.
  11. The WH Press Secretary isn't human. How can she be human? Kayleigh McEnany✔@kayleighmcenany FUN FACT: @dominos is wayyyy better than any NYC pizza Nov 8, 2012
  12. Map probably looks that way because the Provinces report in collectively. And the relatively small numbers aren't worth it for them to break it down further. BC should look similar to Washington State, concentrated in areas and smaller areas around it. Still clearly going up worldwide.
  13. How much money and power to these people need? https://www.forbes.com/sites/michelatindera/2020/06/02/betsy-devos-earned-at-least-56-million-while-in-office-last-year/#5a701ac0235d Speaking of Amway. Surprised to learn that China is Amway's biggest market. And they're #2 in China. Big in other countries too Korea, Japan, India, Taiwan,Thailand. I think the US rank 3rd.
  14. A scary example of how serious this virus is. Specifically how dangerous it is to the lungs. One of treatment of serious cases has been ECMO. In short pumping blood from somewhere else, adding oxygen then pumping it back to the lungs. one story - https://localnews8.com/health/2020/05/27/a-ventilator-wasnt-enough-to-treat-him-for-covid-19-this-machine-became-his-last-chance-for-survival/
  15. Absolutely. May not be in this thread. It is on the minds of us in Canada. We have no excuses. We do need to pay more attention. CBC - https://www.cbc.ca/ Global - https://globalnews.ca/canada/
  16. Not at all. Support for the movement is at least split, if not positive. Media coverage also mostly positive. Except one network, the one creating fake images to scare people like you. Even the Gov. and Mayor lean towards support. The President tweeted: "Radical Left Governor @JayInslee and the Mayor of Seattle are being taunted and played at a level that our great Country has never seen before. Take back your city NOW. If you don’t do it, I will. This is not a game. These ugly Anarchists must be stooped [sic] IMMEDIATELY. MOVE FAST!" In response, Gov. Inslee tweeted: "A man who is totally incapable of governing should stay out of Washington state’s business. “Stoop” tweeting." Seattle Mayor Jenny Durkan replied on Twitter with "Make us all safe. Go back to your bunker. #BlackLivesMatter"
  17. Here, I trust the doctors. They are making tough calls. Like outdoor protest vs shopping at Costco? IDK. Both? Neither? It's a tough call. Tough because you have to trust people to be smart. In the US? Remember by the time the BLM riots occurred most states had already lifted restrictions. Beaches, malls, etc.... full. Arizona for example lifted restrictions on May 15th, 10 days before the incidents in Minneapolis.
  18. This going to sound insulting but we have healthcare system. It makes a big difference.
  19. Trump has postponed his rally in Tulsa. The right thing to do. https://www.bbc.com/news/world-us-canada-53032664
  20. You've probably seen this before, from 2017 but I just re-watched it and it is so well done.
  21. edit - it seems this was over the removal of an episode of Fawlty Towers. So it is extremely out of context here. Why is this in this thread? Always a fan. And he does have a point. But the biggest difference is Confederate Statues in the South especially remind African Americans every day about injustice. As far as I know I've never heard of anyone calling for the removal of Statues of Socrates and Aristotle. Unless this is specifically about Churchill, in my view it's a straw man argument. Pretty insensitive. Awful timing. And I hope he learns better.
  22. Sorry for the threadjack. Why does anyone take a person with blackface as their signature seriously? Nothing wrong with being anti-Trudeau. But that's all you got? Nothing fresh? We can only imagine how happy you must have been when you first saw that picture. Says a lot about you.
  23. Freedom of speech is a blessing. Everyday some white nationalist exposes themselves for what they are. Everyday someone posts something here to show their true colours. They think people don't notice.
