    Why is it the "right" that needs a leg to stand on? Aren't you angry about him doing it, denying it, deflecting it? Left, right, doesn't matter - the PM did something sleazy/illegal and is now lying about it.

    Trump is a F@qing idiot who knows nothing about trade, a six-time bankrupt who doesn't know how to negotiate, and a year from now if not sooner, the Dow will be below 20,000, possibly below 17,000, and the world will be back in 2008, facing an enormous recession. Book it. This isn't about Canada or Mexico but about a distorted world view that sees the US as everyone's patsy. Some patsy, with the strongest economy in the world, near full employment (albeit with a soaring deficit thanks to huge tax cuts and monstrous debt that will reach dollar for dollar with a full year's US GDP). As for you DEFCON, cut the crap and show us what he has achieved. Show us the trade bills he's negotiated or any other of his demands that are being met by any country. He gave us peace in our time, supposedly, by meeting with Kim Jung Un. Well, now the US has found out that Kim is secretly ratcheting up nuclear enrichment. He has no intention of denuclearizing. Trump got hornswoggled. As usual. He wants to dismantle the world trade system. It's not just us. It's everyone. As Putin wants. And to China's great amusement, Trump is leading the US over a precipice. Behold, FART https://www.axios.com/trump-trade-war-leaked-bill-world-trade-organization-united-states-d51278d2-0516-4def-a4d3-ed676f4e0f83.html?utm_source=twitter&utm_medium=twsocialshare&utm_campaign=organic This is the extent of the man's brain. I love the reaction of economists on all side of the spectrum , like Scott Linsicome of the libertarian CATO Institute https://twitter.com/scottlincicome/status/1013565782708707328 All great countries and empires ultimately recede into secondary status. The US had its heyday in the 20th century. It has the genius to continue that into the 21st even as China rises as a world power. But with Trump, the sun is about to start setting on American greatness. Long Live the Middle Kingdom.

    'Catch & release', but directly back into the land they arrived from; that sounds like a good plan to me.

    The speed control at LHR is outstanding. You’re assigned 180 knots as soon as you’re turned onto base and 160 knots until 4 miles once inside about 8 miles on final (depends a bit on traffic in front) and they KNOW if you’re not following their instructions. At 10 miles, you’re usually number 5. Spacing is usually 2.5 miles between aircraft. It’s not uncommon to get landing clearance right around DH. So any go-around instructions from tower are usually pretty late in the game. It’s pretty slick and amazing to watch it all unfold.

    I love his statement; men and women see situations differently, I thought I was simply being friendly, she thought I was groping her. Well, that's true and I agree with him. This is the heart of many of the #metoo accusations; Peter Stoffer, for example. By all accounts he was/is a gregarious, friendly, arm 'round the shoulder kinda guy - chats with the old retired military person manning the security checkpoint, offers drinks to anyone who visits his office, invites the interns to hang out at the social event. Nope. Unacceptable. Someone was offended, and now he's done. Now, clearly, some of these #metoo accounts were obviously over the line, Weinstein as an example, but just as clearly some were simply as case of one person's perception vs another person's perception. The problem I have with Trudeau is not that he got caught in this but that he "knows" how it goes and still refused to give anyone else who's accused the benefit of a fair investigation before cutting them loose. Live by the sword, die by the sword. he's proclaimed we must believe the wymins - so be it. I believe her and it's time for JT to be cut loose.

    Sorry. This is a pet peeve of mine. A CIVILIAN is a person not in the armed forces or a police force. Look it up. Persons working for airlines are CIVILIANS. Not soldiers or police officers. No disrespect to our armed forces, or police services intended. I apologize if anyone found the comment offensive. All flights not flown by the armed forces, or the police are CIVILIAN flights. Agreed ? Perhaps commercial flights, and general aviation ?

    No, the links between the EU - an economy roughly equal in size to the US - and Asia are huge. The EU plus the TPP countries is a significant larger pairing of free trading nations than the US, and next month, four other countries are likely to formally express their interest in joining the TPP. That includes Thailand and South Korea. The Brits even want in when they leave the EU. The US is huge economy, still bigger than China, but it's only a quarter of world trade. That's the key word. Trade. If the US chooses to be a closed marketplace, where it gives up its export capacity, it will be smaller and poorer, and the rest of the world will trade around it. There are a few interesting case studies out there about how this will change the US economy. Lobster fishing and processing was highlighted a few days ago by the Wall Street Journal. The world's lobster trade is primarily sourced from the US (principally the state of Maine), Canada and Australia. Lobster has become a middle class delicacy in China/Japan and Europe, especially around holiday whether that's Christmas/New Year's in Europe or the Chinese New Year which usually falls in February. The US was a dominant exporter to Europe and China. The Australians have the lobster most prized in China, and there is a China-Australia free trade agreement which has given the Australians an advantage over Canada/US, but they can't meet demand with their smaller industry. Canada has been a consistent supplier to all markets. But when CETA came into effect, Canada gained tariff-free access to the EU, displacing a lot of US exports there, and yesterday, July 1, the Chinese tariff on Canadian lobster was lowered to 7% from 12% as part of a modest tariff reduction agreement we negotiated with the Chinese. Maine fishermen expect to lose their Chinese market. All told, the Maine lobster industry employs about 4,000 people, and US consumption of lobster won't keep them all employed, and even the ones that continue to work in lobster fishing and processing are likely to find themselves earning less, as US consumers aren't going to pay the kind of premiums Canada gets in Europe and Asia. For Atlantic Canada, free trade is turning into a big competitive advantage against the US in seafood sectors, like lobster, snow crab, etc.

    We will never be able to reverse it. We are not meant to. The only constant in Earth history is change. The Earth is constantly changing. Land masses are continuously moving, lakes and rivers change, Oceans change. All of this will (and has) happened without human influence and we are powerless to stop it. What we must do is adapt to it and accept it.

    Sure, they’re optimistic....they’ve struck welfare heaven.....bussed to the promised land, being fed and watered, and being a shining example for the world to see of the pm’s inclusivity on the world stage.....not like that evil trump who is standing up to defend the country’s borders.

    LAX has a flight corridor overhead the field which gets used by many aerial photographers. An interesting story of airliners and their life span. http://www.cnn.com/travel/article/airplanes-life-span/

    Can you refute any of the points in the video? Nope. Attempting to bait me into talking about evil Russians won't work either.

    Perhaps just politics? “Contribute to Northern and Inuit economic development by creating a wholly Inuit-owned, new airline focused on Canada's North.”

    I don't have a problem with paying taxes. I don't have a problem with a progressive tax system. The problem I have is with waste.
