  1. all a "Like" is, is clarification that someone happens to share your opinion or agrees with our statement. Using it as a statistical measure is impossible without knowing how many people actually read the post and also taking into account those who do not respond at all. This is where we find society in the era of social media. Likes are given value where no value exists. The only value a like provides is a quick shot of dopamine to the original poster.

  5. Or, Boeing provided exactly what their largest clients asked for, an aircraft that did not require a different type rating. Not defending Boeing, it was certainly a cheaper, or so they thought, solution to what their clients were asking for. Perhaps there would have been a clean slate aircraft if companies like SouthWest had not demanded a single type rating.

  6. So I guess they are referring to a) The MSM namely CNN, NYT, CBC, Toronto Star b) Facebook, Google, Twitter, censorship ? c) The Democrats, / Liberals ? or d) Deicers posting history ?

  7. In 2018 VIA Rail received almost $400,000,000 in a Federal Government subsidy and still lost another $272,000,000..... Their customers pay no Station Improvement Fees, Rail Canada Navigation surcharges, no Rail Security fees.....

  8. Sorry De-icer, this is what the democrat policies entail. Saying You Need Help repeatedly, does not change that reality. It just shows how little credibility you have. Tell us more about the democrat policy of sanctuary cities.

  9. According to questions in House of Commons, Baylis’ contract was fast tracked to produce respirators which hadn’t been approved yet, but we still haven’t had the liberals follow through on fast tracking testing. And in the spirit of clear and transparent government, the libs ignored the question. From an article back in August:

  10. TRUMP AND TRUDEAU: BROTHERS OF ANOTHER MOTHER Trump and Trudeau: They’re not that different, really. Sons of millionaires. Never had to worry about a hydro bill, never needed to fret about a mortgage payment. Never experienced the pocketbook terror that is everyday existence for lesser mortals. Bodyguards, maids, chauffeurs, private jets: These were the emblems of the lives that Trudeau and Trump led and lead. They breathed the same rarefied air as other millionaires and billionaires. They got invited to all the right parties. We in the media hung on their every utterance, stupi

  11. JDunkin, I'm rooting for ya... But from experience, I can assert that the time you spend composing a reply is lost, forever wasted, will fail to resonate and can never penetrate the atmosphere of of Planet TDS. There is no cure for impenetrable narratives, a truism the US seems bent on proving to itself despite historical precedent or cautionary tales from refugees (and simple soldiers) glad to be away from different (but similar) experiences "over there". A bit late perhaps, but welcome to the forum and best of luck as you walk the long and lonely path of abject futility long aba

  13. A good thread here with example after example of mainstream media fake news, much of which is exposed by Fox. https://www.scudrunners.com/viewtopic.php?f=23&t=1849 So yes, you are wrong.

  14. Speaking about making a mountain out of a molehill, a fake news specialty: Remember sharpiegate. That's right, it was in the news for days. Trump allegedly increased the size of the area which could be affected by a hurricane and told people of Alabama to use caution(no doubt out of concern for those people) After all, Hurricanes are well known to take unforecasted tracks. It was in the news for days about how terrible it was for him to do that. Sharpiegate was the final straw for me that the fake news was exactly what Trump said it was(although there were many other things lik

Solidarity among transgender Peruvians and how Black Lives Matter is helping Quebec youth cope with the coronavirus pandemic are among the programs receiving a piece of millions of dollars in COVID-19 research funding from the federal Liberal government. The $4 million funding package was announced by Innovation Minister Navdeep Bains Monday, to be distributed to 172 different projects in the social sciences and humanities. “These grants provide short-term and timely support for partnered research activities that will inform decisio

  19. Any time I returned from a deployment and my wife picked me up, one of our stops on the way home was always the Super Store. It became a tradition, I was always blown away by the amount and variety of produce on display, the air conditioning and the colour green (on the drive back from the airport). Green was always an assault on the senses for the first few hours, almost surreal. Sad eh? Guess ya had to be there.... BTW, anyone who was had nothing bad to say about capitalism.

  20. Hmmm, I wonder how many posts you have on this thread. I tell you what, why don't you show where you think I have posted incorrect or erroneous or hypocritical information, which is exactly what I have been doing for your posts. I will admit though that you have now energized me to search further back through what you have posted here in order to ensure any misleading info is counteracted.

There were two passages in the throne speech of interest - one was specific commitment to help the travel and hospitality sectors - but with no specifics This is the section of the speech This fall, in addition to extending the wage subsidy, the Government will take further steps to bridge vulnerable businesses to the other side of the pandemic by: Expanding the Canada Emergency Business Account to help businesses with fixed costs; By improving the Business Credit Availability Program; And by introducing further support for industries that have been the hardest hi

Coalition rejects Liberals green recovery plan, come up with their own The Coalition of Concerned Manufacturers and Businesses of Canada isn’t buying the Liberals’ Task Force for Resilient Recovery. Especially since CCMBC, a grassroots business group that formed four years ago, claims the plan is by the same architects behind Ontario’s Green Energy Act from former Liberal Premier Kathleen Wynne. So CCMBC advisors and board members held a zoom press conference a day ahead of Wednesday’s federal Throne Speech to announce their own recovery plan. (We’re) positively alarm

  27. Devil's advocate....What purpose does air travel serve? Transportation...relatively quickly...from A to B. And for what purpose? To conduct business or to marvel at the wonders of B. Increasingly, companies are discovering that it is not actually necessary to go to B to conduct business. In fact, it is much cheaper to stay home and use tech to communicate just as though you actually went to B. Wait for wide availability and affordability of VR. I've been to Santorini. It would have been a lot cheaper and probably more enjoyable to see the sights via VR. Truthfully, mos

  28. Geez, one might thing that De-icer is suggesting that Trump is not worthy of being president because one of his former officials was arrested and charged with a crime. Therefore, one shoulf vote for the Democrats. Wait a minute. What does that headline say: https://www.cnbc.com/2019/04/11/obama-white-house-counsel-gregory-craig-charged-by-federal-prosecutors.html "Obama White House counsel Greg Craig charged with lying to prosecutors about foreign lobbying" I guess De-Icer is just a fraud who pretends to be outraged when something bad happens in Trump White Hoise but ignores the

I didn't inherit my job or my income, and I have busted ass to get where I am in life. I have juggled my job, my family, and I’ve made countless sacrifices up front to secure a good life for myself and my children. It wasn’t always easy and still isn't, but I did it all while maintaining my integrity and my principles. I’ve never put anyone beneath myself or denied help to anyone.

  32. One of the wisest and most self-aware things I've ever seen from an organization was the statement on the top of the old Aviation Safety Letter that used to arrive in my mailbox on a regular basis - Learn from the mistakes of others; you won't live long enough to make them all yourself. And learn we did - used to sit with my fellow aviators and discussion the accidents and incidents, not to ridicule but to learn how to avoid being "that guy." That statement was removed at some point - probably to avoid the suggestion that someone had made a "mistake." It's a shame but somehow, as a soc
