  1. The Premier of Quebec wants to reduce the number of immigrants it takes in from 50,000 to 40,000. He also wants to keep the current level of immigration funding and wants $300 million in compensation for those illegal border crossers. No feigned outrage there at all from JT. By way of comparison, Lisa Macleod is branded "un Canadian" by virtue of the fact she wants Ottawa to pay their share of the migrant bill ($200 million).... that JT (almost) single handedly created. I almost don't have to look at the facts anymore, if a Liberal is outraged, there is a strong element of hypocrisy at work even as they scream "hypocritical racist" in my face.
  2. LOL, nothing is simple eh? Here is a simple security guard perspective for what it may be worth. This sort of thing occasionally happens at other (government and private) access control points as well. As a result, it’s helpful to have a known protocol that acts as a standard for all and clearly defines whether you require ID or valid ID because there is a difference. It seems to me, that not having a clear protocol that satisfies company parameters and meets the minimum regulatory standards will eventually cause embarrassment and it has caused me that embarrassment before too. A fishing licence (at least mine) isn’t photo ID and is not an ID card by definition, its a license or more accurately a permit. BTW, your airport security (GRA) pass is a “pass” and not technically ID either as it lacks some ID parameters. In some venues, you can be issued a pass without showing ID if you are personally known to the guard. In short, not all passes serve as ID and neither do all licences and /or permits although some can (and do). By way of example, your invitation to the reception serves as admission but your drivers licence doesn’t make the cut. In addition, the issue sometimes comes down to being one of “valid” ID. To be considered valid (at least in some circles), it must be government issued, have a current photo, address, height, eye colour, birth date, gender and an expiry date. On the other hand, and IMO more to the point here, simple ID can be an expired passport or expired drivers license…. you can’t drive with it or travel internationally with it because it isn’t “valid”, but its expiration date (in and of itself) doesn’t detract from its value for determining identification. I know of seniors, who no longer drive who do this regularly with an expired driver’s license under circumstances that “valid ID” isn’t required (we only need to know that you are who you say you are).

    Trump 2.0 Continues

    https://www.cnn.com/2019/01/16/opinions/karen-pence-evangelical-hypocrisy-clay-cane/index.html CNN and all too many liberals don’t seem to recognize hypocrisy when they see it, especially if it happens to be in the mirror. If you are going to go to a christian school, or teach at a christian school you have to profess christian values. Government is secular and it would be wrong, not to mention illegal, to apply those same values in like form. Acknowledging that as true and acting accordingly isn't hypocrisy, at a personal level it is respect, consideration and acceptance of the fact that we are all different and (within the bounds of legality) thats A OK with me. Maybe offering some simple examples and typing slowly might help (liberals and democrats) grasp the concept here: If you want to be a pilot you need a pilot license. Your diving certificate from ACUC won't land you that DEC position even if the flight planned route is over water. If you are going to join a motorcycle riding association you need a motorcycle, not a 3/4 ton truck…. but don’t put the plow on your motorcycle, it goes on the truck if you don't want to get stuck If you are coming to archery night at the range, leave your handgun at home (yes, it’s ARCHERY NIGHT). Please don’t scream BANG with every release either… it’s distracting. If you are interested in mounted archery (yes it’s a thing) then please accept the fact that it is done with HORSES…. this is not a motorcycle association and your iron horse with the headers on it might scare the other horses that burn hay. If you are coming to IPSC /PPC night please leave your bow at home, it’s not archery night anymore; besides, it makes those double taps harder to execute. If you use a baseball bat at the golf tournament your score won't be counted and we don't care if CNN finds that "offensive" or not. If you are a satanist, don’t expect to be hired to teach scriptural doctrine at a seminary college. One of the requirements to work there is, well, being christian and not being ashamed of it. Conversely, if you want to be a politician, you need to arm yourself with secular principles, not Christian beliefs. Hopefully this helps a bit. I was going to use the Boy Scouts and Girl Guides as an example too but you (liberals) have already messed that up to the point that these organizations are in court suing each other.

    Crap from the Left

    Good, I thought it was just me. I would rather use my old Randall knife than a Gillette now (and forever more). They lost a customer... hopefully lots of em.
  5. Try to imagine how much you would have enjoyed election reform. All of the "anyone but Harper" crew have fallen silent. All of the "celebrate diversity" fairies have joined the ranks of the new oppressors and consider those they once called racist to be soft and weak. I would love to PT their butts in the snow until they cried and rang the bell...
  6. Then stop voting for leftist governments and giving them majorities..... and then (AND THEN) being sooooooooo surprised that they do exactly what they said they would do. JT is not a surprise, as far as I'm concerned, people got their monies worth here. In fact, I have far greater respect for his tenacity than I do pouty liberal voters who got exactly what they wanted and now think that hand shakes and pork dishes pave the road to salvation. People need to start taking more vacations in war zones, or reading things not of CBC or CNN or MSNBC or FOX. The grade is now so damn steep the horses are going to be run over by the cart. One of my favourite quotes, from the favourite chapter of my favourite book: "I see Barsad, and Cly, Defarge, The Vengeance, the Juryman, the Judge, long ranks of the new oppressors who have risen on the destruction of the old, perishing by this retributive instrument, before it shall cease out of its present use. I see a beautiful city and a brilliant people rising from this abyss, and, in their struggles to be truly free, in their triumphs and defeats, through long years to come, I see the evil of this time and of the previous time of which this is the natural birth, gradually making expiation for itself and wearing out.
  7. Cool, but stop changing them as your values change, and stop changing your bloody values, I'm running out of underwear! When was a handshake by an Arab (Muslim) women a condition of citizenship anywhere.... stop it! Time for voters to grow up.
  8. It's deliciously ironic eh? The complete lack of cultural awareness prevails.... as if it didn't yesterday.
  9. The unwillingness of some Arab (Muslim) women to shake hands is not a surprise. It is part of the diversity lefties once celebrated and once called me racist for even pointing out…. yes, it was right here. They now have buyers remorse and are looking at silly, simple, cheap ways of correcting a situation they are responsible for creating. Had I suggested this handshake thing a couple of years ago there would be howls of indignation and lots of name calling, and you know it! I knew full well that there would come a time when lefties would pull back from their values and become the very racists they once accused me of being. As in a Tale of Two Cities, long ranks of the new oppressors. I also knew there would come a time when I would stand in opposition to their petty attempts at rectification… looks like the time is here. You (not you, we & us) wouldn’t listen then and sure as hell won’t listen now. This is the very foolishness (in reverse) that got us to where we are today and it will be no more effective than the previous incarnation. If you won’t listen, then watch as phase two plays out. Remember when I asked you if you were willing to pay for those left wing liberal values? Who was it that said they would not want to live in a country that wouldn't? My mistake was (partially) believing that you were sincere while fully expecting that you weren't. Not a mistake I will make again at voting time. Pretty pathetic IMO...
  10. I don't know what you mean.... was the article made up, or a joke? If so, I would feel better about it but it seems silly enough to be true. Is refusing a handshake now sufficient to revoke existing citizenship? Are amputees now subject to deportation? After considering all inquiries and references to the notion of "common values" to be racist and xenophobic, is this the best we have to offer now?
  11. People who are smart enough to go to university should be smart enough to figure out how to pay for it. Some people's efforts in this regard are truly inspirational and an example to all. Others, not so much....

    Trump 2.0 Continues

    Don't get too encouraged. So far we have 131 pages of nothing; I eagerly await the first actual piece of evidence before battery failure. Currently, Democrats with their hair on fire are lighting up the room. https://www.foxnews.com/opinion/gregg-jarrett-buzzfeed-report-with-false-attack-on-trump-is-media-malpractice
  13. Good Lord. This may be one of the stupidest things I've ever heard.... it's right up there with every restaurant having a pork dish on the menu. Liberal values completely run amok in the search for cheap (read idiotic) solutions created by the very authors of the current incarnation of stupid. These guys need to open their wallets and do it right.... Where do these ideas come from? Is there a panel of "hey, I know what lets do" fools out there somewhere or did JT and co have a hand in this?

    Trump 2.0 Continues

    Good... after 131 pages of darkness my flashlight batteries are running low.
  15. It seems pretty simple to me... you are either willing to pay for what you want or you aren't. Regardless of what voters tell pollsters, they just aren't willing to pay and I see no indication of that willingness anywhere, it's just talk. If you want all the stuff you listed, and if you are willing to pay for it, consider me onboard and in full support. But show me.... open your wallet and fix just one aspect of one thing you have already told me you wanted.... do something (anything), maybe fix up some of Toronto's woes, I will settle for police manning to start. Get that done and we will have grounds for further discussion. Until you are willing to show me, I won't be falling for those sentiments again. In fact, I'll even lower my expectations for the police service, stop hiring and employing idiots.... fire them. https://www.thestar.com/news/gta/2019/01/17/toronto-cop-who-left-gun-at-bar-after-night-of-drinking-pleads-guilty-to-professional-misconduct.html https://torontosun.com/news/local-news/conduct-unbecoming-t-o-cops-ring-in-2019-by-wrecking-a-cruiser Not enough... I'll go lower still, stop making me ask "what did you think was going to happen?" The lack of "willingness" is now so predictable that I simply don't believe a word a liberal has to say.
  16. I'm thinking these are the same people who thought green energy was a great plan until they had to pay for it. The concept of paying a carbon tax and then getting back more than what you actually paid only makes sense in a liberal galaxy far, far away.

    Trump 2.0 Continues

    All of this will be fun to watch.... clearly Democrats and Liberals no longer care about being abandoned by those who once supported them. It's like a new world as long time "classical" liberals flee the scene because they feel there is no other choice. https://video.foxnews.com/v/5990336574001/#sp=show-clips
  18. Excellent.... I'm glad to hear it. I stand in full support of Ontario paying for this, in fact, I would be delighted to see them pick up the tab for other provinces not so inclined. Next trip I will route through the US to avoid Quebec and Ontario, I don't like the drivers there anyway.

    Reality 2019

    This is what happens when you don't pay your bills. https://torontosun.com/news/local-news/lcbo-thieves-getting-away-scotch-free I don't even have to look at the police services hiring and attrition rates to tell you what is happening here; they are in a net deficit. This is not me saying the situation is getting worse; it means THEY see it as getting worse. Regrowing a force (be it police or military) is a difficult thing if you only start after it already hurts... it leads to more short term attrition as workloads (overtime etc) increase resulting in even less responses. Think about this now.... "help I'm being robbed," "nope, we don't respond to robberies anymore." This reminds me a bit of the "pilot shortage" and how it came about. There will come a point that you will pay because you have to. At that point, you will realize it was much cheaper not to let your manning disintegrate in the first place. If you don't pay your bills, no other outcome is possible; stop reading about "Donnie".... you have enough problems at home. Get a grip on this before it becomes a real problem for you. Better yet, ban robbers and robberies. As soon as you see that manning deficits effect operational tempo it's time to act, that means recruiting and training right now.... like today, and be willing to accept a further (short term) drop in tempo while you do it. In other words, this (current) drop in response should be a deliberate, short term cost of bringing more resources to bear..... and it's not. The return to photo radar isn't an efficiency thing, it's an admission of existing deficiency under the guise of "modernization" and it fools no one who has been down this road too many times.

    Shootings and Knifings

    That would likely shut down 80% of the discussion on this side of the forum. I briefly lived in Toronto but it proved far to much “city” for me and I left a great aviation job behind as a result… all a matter of personal choice and I have no regrets; it simply wasn’t for me. I’m sorry to see what’s happening there and I think it will become more and more of what most people want less and less of over time. Be assured though, I’m rooting for you and hope it all works out. In the interim, I avoid Toronto as much as possible… but that’s just me.

    Shootings and Knifings

    It's not that hard to figure out and not that hard to fix.... it just takes lots of money. When will liberals be willing to pay for liberal values? Not doing this right is my personal definition of racism. There are only two questions here, are you willing to pay for it? And if not, what did you think was going to happen? https://www.cbc.ca/news/opinion/gang-violence-1.4975700
  22. The left will be happy about the well deserved revenue generation here. There is no place I can think of that deserves photo radar more than Ontario.... ask any biker about idiot drivers there. Worst in Canada and the US IMO. Well deserved! Make the rich pay.... https://torontosun.com/news/local-news/photo-radar-makes-comeback-this-year

    Trump 2.0 Continues

    I always fear the natural tendency to complicate things. It's not that I disagree in principal but I think the logistics could be problematic. Single mother daycare while working at this, no car or transportation to the work site, no warm winter work clothes, back injury limitations, doctors certificates, lots of others but thats a start. I think it wise not to try and omnibus all of the changes; slow and steady wins the race. Income tax to start and income tax only... enforcement comes at a cost.

    Trump 2.0 Continues

    Sounds good but might be a tricky thing to manage IMHO. Seasonal workers, changing employment circumstances, short term unemployment, short term disability, etc etc could complicate things more than I (and maybe others) might deem reasonable to account for in a simplified tax system. In the absence of more information, and assuming a similar revenue structure, I would be tempted to leave social support mechanisms intact until the facts were all in. I'm not sure it would be wise to revamp everything at the same time. Slow and steady seems a wiser approach to me... again, the law of unintended consequences.

    Trump 2.0 Continues

    I would need to see a workable model in order to reach any conclusions I guess. I think Hong Kong had (or made still does) a flat tax system. I would want to see some history, and cause & effect models before leaping into it. I maintain a healthy respect for the law of unintended consequences.
