  1. Contrary to what the liberals both federally and provincially have been saying about how well the economy is doing, I thought I might start a list....

  2. Didn’t know what to post this under, but it’s kind of an interesting :
  3. Me too....kind of ignored the post a few times for that reason. After watching the clip, I was surprised and some nice displays of airmanship, especially around the 8:10 mark and 18:00 with some nice technique displayed by the EMB 145 (?). The 757 at 19:00 was surprising, nose about 20* off centreline...never could bring myself to try that.

    777 Tail strike...Hkg

    At what nose up attitude would you have to attain to scrape the tail? It would have to be approaching 8-9*, which would be quite dramatic imo.
  5. FWIW.....the turd will have 15 min of airtime fri dec14 on city tv/ Toronto at 0800 .... hoping for some tough questions from viewers and hopefully, he won’t be speaking with the help of a TelePrompTer.
  6. Yup, it’s a non-binding agreement but it will open the doors for a lot of queue jumpers.....too bad for bona fide immigrants who went through the process with skills Canada needs. And there are some who will say there is room for everybody. And so it starts.... btw... the quotes were from an opinion piece in the Globe from non other than Lloyd Axworthy.....couldn’t get the link to work.

    Shootings and Knifings

    Of course they were pulled over near a strip club at 230 in the morning: “Police responded and pulled over a vehicle leaving the area. Police seized various drugs and a .45 calibre handgun and arrested the two women and one man inside the vehicle. Charged with drug and firearms offences are Atrooba Mughal, 19, Ashley Waldriff, 25, and Patrick-Adrian Agpoon, 22, all from Toronto.”https://www.mississauga.com/news-story/9078331-looking-for-robber-near-mississauga-strip-club-police-find-more-than-they-expected/
  8. Wait til the carbon tax kicks in, and trickle down costs hit joe average’s pocket book. https://m.youtube.com/watch?ebc=ANyPxKpdLlI1HFr1tuRJJE4MIs_tKqs4k6QCdC1R1_5vMbvyegjeMKX0kPvVzsimfGn2y9hsn_rEQ-g_vLFb0GgALVMBUdvSog&v=b7rp-RQ_LoU&time_continue=9
  9. Always wondered where the outrage was with rap lyrics. I go to a gym where they play rap/edm from Sirius XM. I never listened to the “lyrics”, but a few words/phrases caught my attention. To think there is an outrage over “ baby it’s cold” is laughable. https://www.complex.com/music/2013/03/the-50-grossest-rap-lyrics/

    Shootings and Knifings

    Here’s a twist for the turd to process: CP24 Toronto is covering a story relating to a joint police investigation in the GTA. The police are reporting the results of a sweep where they uncovered drugs and guns ... 14 handguns, 6 long guns, hand grenades, stun gun, and quantities of drugs and cash. But more importantly, it led to the arrest of 2 individuals who have been charged with manufacturing at least 120 untraceable handguns. Not smuggled, not stolen legal guns , but guns assembled from parts and rendered untraceable.
  11. Even some liberals are **bleep** at wonder boy: https://nationalpost.com/opinion/stephen-ledrew-in-case-trudeaus-50m-trevor-noah-tweet-doesnt-strike-you-as-wrong-let-me-break-it-down The author is a rather outspoken former president of the liberal party of Canada.

    Shootings and Knifings

    I fear the plan to have a central storage facility at gun ranges would accomplish what the turd can’t do through other regulations. By requiring hand guns to be stored at your local range, I think most ranges would be forced to shut down due to the costs of building a vault, providing security for the vault, maintaining an inventory system, having staff on hand to be responsible etc.The logistics and associated costs would be prohibitive in most cases. If this is the case, ranges shutting down, what then happens to the hand gun owner.....he can’t store the gun(s) in the manner he has safely done up to this point...what will be the alternative???? And for the criminal element, here is a known source of maybe 2-300 handguns in one spot....given the ingenuity of some gangs, it would be a treasure trove.

    Shootings and Knifings

    I deleted the quoted post re:knifing because on a subsequent news report there was also a shooting...kinda nullified my point!

    Shootings and Knifings

    So,, the most obvious question that springs to mind.....what was CATSAs role in this and how did he get the gun and ammo on-board the a/c (assuming he departed from a Cdn airport)?? Two fails here! Also, where is the outrage after the last few Toronto murder victims?? Oh right.....they didn’t involve a handgun! https://torontosun.com/news/local-news/warmington-suspected-arrested-in-14-year-old-mississauga-boys-slaying https://torontosun.com/news/local-news/friends-shocked-by-deadly-stabbing-of-artist-near-allan-gardens
  15. Here is another example of the trudeau government hypocrisy. Will McKenna inform the B.C. premier that, in order to comply with her UN climate goals, the feds will have to shutdown a large chunk of the B.C. economy?
  16. It was just a little lie by a cabinet minister: https://www.therebel.media/minister-sohi-claims-courts-not-liberals-killed-northern-gateway-here-are-the-facts-?utm_campaign=rb_06_12_18&utm_medium=email&utm_source=therebel
  17. Given the turds idealistic views on the world, the Syrian refugees, the open border at Roxham road, the intention of signing the compact on migration (not immigration), ...... at what point will he ever say no to people entering the country? When will enough be enough?
  18. This Compact gives migrants the right to migrate, the right to health care, etc. and even though “non-binding”, gives a reference for judges to base decisions on since the country has signed and agreed in principle to the compact.
  19. Just spit balling here..........but....if the turd signs on to the UN compact on migrants/migration, would the migrants who wandered in at Roxham rd be given a free pass. It would allow the turd to claim he has solved Canada’s refugee crisis. on the downside, he would piss off all those who are legally waiting to enter the country through legal immigration channels.

    Generation Change

    You’re kidding right?????
  21. Jaydee, the turd introduced this: https://www.canada.ca/en/revenue-agency/services/child-family-benefits/child-family-benefits-calculator.html I ran through it, single mom, 3 kids under 18, 25k/yr, $10grand paid in rent.....typical small town scenario...... $22600 in cash and benefits!
  22. I agree Jaydee.....every time I start my boat, with its 2 x 8.1 litre gas engines, I smile and think of Trudeau and Climate Barbie, and open another beer. The Danish government seems to be taking the right approach, imo. This will send a message to their migrant population. https://nationalpost.com/news/world/danes-plan-to-detain-foreign-criminals-on-deserted-island I think we have more than enough suitable locations to host a population.
  23. 90 workers laid off in the Soo.
  24. It only took 3 years for Trudeau to “stand” up to Putin....in a nice safe place with plenty of press around. Putin was probably busy trying to ignore the little potatoe.
  25. More of what I fear is Trudeau/Hussein’s grand scheme for the future of Canada. This interview was with a British MP who has has first hand experience with the European migrant issue....and she speaks out against the UN compact ... a good backgrounder. Gets to the real impacts around the :24 min mark. https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=4KA_SzIc1DA#
