  1. That's the kind of win that just might turn things around for the team.....
  2. Just found out that us fans can contact the NHLPA directly. I just did and let them know I was disappointed with their decision.
  3. Same. Not excited about this at all and I wish we weren't going. Two Canadian citizens are being held on trumped up charges and a third had his sentence upgraded to Death, because the Chinese government is upset that we honored an Extradition agreement with the US. And now we're going to reward this genocidal nation by attending their party?
  4. Never mind Instrumental...I can't believe the voice that comes out of this guy..... Great song. Thanks for the tip....
  5. To be clear, I'm not giving Roberts any props here. I'm just saying that before I read up on it, I expected the vote to be 6-3....
  6. Me too, but I don't really use data much....
  7. I agree....The idea that we're falling into the same kind of mess as our Southern neighbors, just because of a vocal group of anti-government protesters is sucking up all the oxygen, is giving them far too much credit, IMO.... They're dogs, barking off in the distance. The majority (even the majority of Conservatives) are not like these people...
  8. I think the fact that the Supreme Court declined to take up this case underlines the fact that Mitch McConnell's cheating and Donald Trump's pandering to his base, has severely eroded the reproductive rights of American women and will continue to do so for the foreseeable future. https://www.reuters.com/world/us/us-supreme-court-declines-block-texas-abortion-ban-2021-09-02/ The only surprise in the SCOTUS decision is that Chief Justice Roberts sided with the three Liberal Justices, resulting in a 5-4 decision against hearing the case. The progressive wing of the Democratic party was from day one of the Biden administration, pushing for reform on the issues that made this sort of thing possible, (ending the Filibuster, expanding the Supreme Court, imposing term limits on same) but for some reason, the Dems feel like they have to "play by the rules", as it were, while the other side cheats and steals their way into power, despite not having the mandate to do so.... People like Joe Manchin, Kyrsten Sinema and yes, Joe Biden himself, can pat themselves on the back for the "principled" goal of Bipartisanship, but the fact is, the current incarnation of the Republican party is not interested. They're only interested in returning to power and have no compunctions whatsoever on how they achieve that goal.... ....meanwhile, the stonewalling of people like Manchin and Sinema has real world consequences....as the women of Texas and other red states are finding out...
  9. Covidiots shut down traffic near Vancouver city hall: https://www.msn.com/en-ca/news/canada/anti-vaccine-protesters-shut-down-traffic-near-vancouver-city-hall/ar-AANZVLQ?li=AAggNb9 Demonstrations in Kelowna, Kamloops and Victoria as well, apparently.....
  10. 'Struth.... Just look at this handsome devil.....
  11. I think you're wasting your time here. Been down this road many times and it's always "pointing out hypocrisy" and as Hip already pointed out, a heavy dose of playing the victim... It's basically tantamount to saying "I think a cherry and a pineapple look alike, because they're both fruit, amirite?" Then, when you disagree, you're "attacking" them for "having a different opinion", even though a 4 year old child can see how wrong they are....
  12. Earlier we were talking about Instrumentals. I always like this one by the Mannheim Steamroller (who aren't from Germany, BTW) Synth heavy, with a seamless segue into a flute / harpsichord bridge section......
  13. She's not wrong about Bone Spurs, but I think her wholehearted support of Biden just goes to show that she doesn't GAF about the Afghans caught in the middle....
  14. I'm sure they'll tell us that they did....
  15. Quite the snipe by MPP.... Gotta say that I was half expecting the Yanks to go the other way and score, setting up a video review for all the marbles. I was quite surprised that they reviewed while the game was still going and hit the buzzer when the goal was confirmed. Never seen that before, but I like it.
  16. Nah...I'm well aware that is a bridge too far...It's the stuff that's outright insulting to our intelligence that gets my goat. It's kind of like the Canadian version of "...and Mexico will pay for it"....The fact that someone considers me as dumb as a racist Trump supporter, is what really irks...
  17. I really hope the cops are there and start arresting anyone who tries to disrupt normal operations....
  18. This is brilliant.....I can just picture the anti-vaxxers now....combing the desert....looking for Rattlers....
  19. I wish politicians of all stripes would stop making such silly claims.... We're at the tail end of a Global pandemic (I hope) where the government was forced to financially support a significant portion of the population. They also propped up businesses that were hurt by lockdowns....There's no way we're going to see a balanced budget any time soon, especially when they tell us they'll do so "without cuts". To me, it's insulting that any politician considers the citizenry that gullible.
