  1. Fox News spreading RNC aligned propaganda for decades has had the desired effect: a new generation of the weaponized ignorant have been raised to be full-rage angry at often fabricated or blown out of proportion scandals, just like the generation before them. Thank &^@# idiots like those at Rebel Media didn't get their cable TV wishes granted or we'd be a little more susceptible to the same level of societal retardation up here.
  2. Agree they don't, but it's in-your-face-odd that Trump would so quickly come out against Montenego as Putin tries to get a stranglehold on, or friendship with, any country with a port that could access/influence Europe. Turkey, Syria, the Baltic region, and now Montenegro. As usual, Putin/Russia are just playing the geo-political long game, but Trump has an uncanny ability to expedite certain portions of it. And reading a transcript of any of his rants leaves one's brow furrowed. His nuclear rant is my personal fave: ^ That guy is the president, and his base would have us believe he's intelligent enough to negotiate with North Korea, China, and Russia. How's that working out so far?
  3. Maria Butina is also the same woman that asked Trump about Russian foreign policy at one of his Klan campaign rallies. And to add to your post: Republicans made their bed with the NRA long ago, but ever since Russia has been purchasing influence with them it sure makes for some greasy looking arrangements. Like Putin's buddy and alleged Russian mobster Alexander Torshin being invited by the NRA to oversee 2012 Federal Elections. This all makes for some interesting speculation about who US PERSON 1 could be. I bet it's David Keene, but it would be extra greasy if it was someone who was a sitting or about to sit congressman at the time, like Dana Rohrabacher. edit: forgot the link ^ https://www.npr.org/2018/03/01/590076949/depth-of-russian-politicians-cultivation-of-nra-ties-revealed
  4. Meanwhile, in a reality completely devoid of satire, Trump keeps marching out oddly Russian sided talking points: - President Donald Trump expressed skepticism over the US's commitment with NATO by singling Montenegro, its newest member - Trump questioned whether or not the US would defend it, as required to do by NATO's founding treaty - Trump suggested that the US, which "[pays] 90% of the costs to defend Europe," was being abused by the alliance - Trump imagined a scenario where Montenegro's "aggressive people" could spark World War III with Russia - His train of thought closely mirrors Russian anti-NATO messaging https://nordic.businessinsider.com/trump-montenegro-nato-fox-news-interview-2018-7?r=US&IR=T I doubt Trump could even find Montenegro on a map until Putin told him about it at the treason summit. Fox News is an enemy of the American people, and Trump is way over his head as he doubles down on burning the the reputation the States had on the world stage.
  5. Every @Positive Canuck post on this page:
  6. Which further reinforces my point that the German scientist, much like Hollywood, was not the first to posit the idea of time travel. Whether any of the others knew anything about relativity or physics wasn't relevant to my point.
  7. Yes, thanks, exactly what I meant.
  8. That's not true. Orson* Wells wrote about it in his 1894 book, The Time Machine. Time travel has also appeared in several texts prior to that, one being The Mahabharata from the 9th century, though prior to Einstein coming out with his relativity theory, time travel was largely regarded as uni-directional and with no return. Orson* Wells %100 pre-dated the german scientist's postulations. *H.G.

      "If they don't know the difference between right and wrong, they could be very effective soldiers." - Talking about training child soldiers. Wow. Just.....wow.

      @diesel_3 It's crazy that these people believe they're defending American values.

      I so wish he could have portrayed Freddie Mercury in a movie about him & Queen. Big shame that that will never happen. 

  10. Do you pronounce it "Van-couver" or "Vang-couver"?  

     

    I've almost always said "Vang".

      Van-couver.

       

      It shows how little time I spend in Vancouver that I just learned that this is even a thing. :lol:

      @Rounoush Meh, it's not like people in the city just walk around all day long pronouncing it one way or the other. I'd wager out of towners say the city name more frequently than in-towners.

       

      I was just trying to remember how John Ashcroft used to yell it as he announced the Nucks hitting the ice. On the spot, and if I had to guess, I'd say he pronounced it "Vancouver", which would made him wrong.

  14. Quebec heat wave kills 54 people

    Honest answer: $$. The infrequent need for AC may result in choosing not to purchase what would otherwise be viewed as a frivolous item when perhaps the same money is being saved dollar by dollar for high heating costs during long winters. I used to poo-poo AC, but when the temp hits 40+ even a healthy middle aged individual is able to find reprieve inside a slightly cooler home if the means are installed.
  15. I mean, I get it, but I don't like how Sedin Talk reverted back to Canucks Talk.   

     

    Drank a couple severals for Burr tonight, what a cat; ECHL + ball hockey star to Sedin triplet. If he communicates the game as well as he thinks it then he'll make a good coach for the Habs farm club.

      VG, although I disagree, I can see your point.  But you didn't have to be such a d*ck about it.  Jeez...

      It's just a message board, VG, not a crest on the &^@#ing jersey. Get over yourself.
