  1. Yo Kip. Why don't you just use your bank debit card? We're in Maui right now & my last purchase, using an RBC debit card, had an exchange rate of 1.3578. Not too bad...but maybe there is something inherently risky about using debit cards transborder that I'm not aware of? Cheers!
  2. Jerry says it well...
  3. A little more on the subject... Marijuana users blowing up their homes while trying to make hash oil Call it an unintended consequence of legalizing recreational marijuana. People are blowing up their homes as they try to extract the hash oil from marijuana. Two homes exploded within hours of each other on Tuesday, one in Shelton, the other in Seattle. The common denominator was marijuana users trying to extract the oils from their buds. Twenty-four hours earlier, a rental home in Lake City was blown off its foundation by a hash oil extraction gone wrong. Police and fire departments across the state are seeing a dramatic rise in the number of amateur hash-oil operations leading to explosions that knock homes off their foundations and send people to emergency rooms. They’ve happened in every corner of the state from Vancouver, to Mount Vernon, to Spokane. “Potentially, it could be deadly,” said Mark Jamieson with Seattle Police.
  4. Curious what you think of the reverser deployment at this stage?
  5. There are quite a few consequences, here's one for the Fire Service: Exploding Refrigerators If you think the recent liberalization of marijuana laws around the country is only about smoking leaves and buds, think again. For users younger than 25, "hash oil" is where it's really at. This concentrated resin of marijuana is creating new public safety headaches — even in places where it's legal. From the same article: Last year, the U.S. Fire Administration, a department of the Federal Emergency Management Agency, issued a bulletin warning of an increase in fires involving the production of hash oil. In Washington state, which legalized marijuana for recreational use in 2012, authorities have noted an uptick in similar incidents. There was an explosion in a building in Seattle on Tuesday, and Verner O'Quinn, a sergeant with the Seattle Police Department's bomb squad, blames solvents used in the production of hash oil. There were no victims in the explosion, but it created a big bang. "It blew out the windows, blew the walls 6 inches from the foundation in an area. Cracked the siding," O'Quinn says. He says fires in the Seattle area often come with a particular twist: They start with exploding refrigerators. Apparently, some people put their marijuana-butane marinade in the freezer. "Maybe the process works better when it's colder," O'Quinn says. Most freezers have a fan, which then circulates the volatile butane fumes into the rest of the refrigerator, "down to where the compressor is," he explains. "A small spark will set it off, and it generally blows the door off."
  6. LOL...that's funny! I'm just waiting for your posts from Pravda.
  7. your obtuse point. What, relatively speaking had Trudeau Jr. done in the same time frame dagger old boy?
  8. ^^^ As of Feb.1st... Bold my emphasis / comment... Memorandums and proclamations As well as the executive orders, President Trump has signed a number of presidential memoranda – which have less legal force but still have important consequences in setting out policy priorities. He moved quickly to halt new federal regulations pending review by the new administration. The president imposed a recruitment freeze on federal government, exempting the military. Another memorandum called for the US to withdraw from the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) – a largely symbolic move as the deal had not been ratified by Congress. Two more actions seek to renew controversial projects to build the Keystone and Dakota Access oil pipelines. One Republican favourite, the “Mexico City policy”, or “global gag rule” to its critics, is back – banning US funding for international non-governmental organisations that promote abortion. Administration officials have been banned from lobbying the US on behalf of a foreign government. (Love that...hello Hillary). Another memorandum seeks to “rebuild the US armed forces” and “pursue peace through strength”. The president also orders a new plan “to defeat the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria” to be drawn up within 30 days.
  9. I don't get you deicer. You've railed on for years about the "man"...aka big money ruling the world and calling the shots. Yes, Trump has money...but if there is anyone going against the establishment it is he. You should be a flagbearer. If you want to have a cross-to-bear, raise it against the true fascists...the left loonies & anarchists who want to stifle any contrary opinion. Best!
  10. ^^^ Come off it deicer, fault of the Administration? Media reporting on the "facts", not have got to be living in a parallel universe. "The Democratic Party and its alt-left liberal allies are plotting, planning and scheming to slow down, stop, and even destroy President Trump and the agenda that America chose in November. According to the Washington Free Beacon, left-wing agitator David Brock, the founder of Media Matters and a huge Clinton ally, hosted a private getaway in a ritzy resort last month. More than 100 rich liberal donors were there, and they all got a confidential memo outlining Brock's plan to take down President Trump by filing endless lawsuits against the president and even seeking his impeachment. Fox News Channel’s “Hannity” reached out to Media Matters for comment on the Washington Free Beacon report, but they did what they always do. They ignored our questions and took a shot at me. Brock's plan is not a secret. News outlets like Politico and The Hill have reported on his post-election plans to go after President Trump every single day. You’re already seeing it with lawsuits over Trump’s travel ban and the relentless obstruction of his cabinet appointments. To stop Trump’s completely constitutional travel ban, which blocks people from seven hostile or failed nations that all happen to be majority Muslim, the radical alt-left has gone court and judge shopping. They have found the most liberal federal appeals court in the country to battle the Trump administration. Never mind that the law which the Trump administration is using to defend the president's constitutional executive order is very clear and unambiguous. "Whenever the president finds that the entry of any aliens or any class of aliens into the United States would be detrimental to the interests of the United States, [the president] may by proclamation and for such period as he shall deem necessary, suspend the entry of all aliens or any class of aliens as immigrants or non-immigrants or impose on the entry of aliens any restrictions he made deem to be appropriate," reads the relevant statute. The alt-left knows this, and knows it must find liberal courts and judges who will take their side no matter what the law says. What they can't get done at the ballot box or legislatively, they seek through judicial activism. The alt-left's goal is to hurt President Trump any way it can. It makes no difference too them if the American people are put in danger. The Democratic Party and its allies are willing to gamble with your life. The president is not. That's what this debate is about." Adapted from Sean Hannity's monologue on "Hannity," Feb. 7, 2017
  11. And she was Obama's outgoing AG.
  12. And all fueled by disgruntled Democrats acting like spoiled children.
  13. President Donald Trump's full inaugration speech... Chief Justice Roberts, President Carter, President Clinton, President Bush, President Obama, fellow Americans, and people of the world: thank you. We, the citizens of America, are now joined in a great national effort to rebuild our country and to restore its promise for all of our people. Together, we will determine the course of America and the world for years to come. We will face challenges. We will confront hardships. But we will get the job done. Every four years, we gather on these steps to carry out the orderly and peaceful transfer of power, and we are grateful to President Obama and First Lady Michelle Obama for their gracious aid throughout this transition. They have been magnificent. Today’s ceremony, however, has very special meaning. Because today we are not merely transferring power from one Administration to another, or from one party to another – but we are transferring power from Washington, D.C. and giving it back to you, the American People. For too long, a small group in our nation’s Capital has reaped the rewards of government while the people have borne the cost. Washington flourished – but the people did not share in its wealth. Politicians prospered – but the jobs left, and the factories closed. The establishment protected itself, but not the citizens of our country. Their victories have not been your victories; their triumphs have not been your triumphs; and while they celebrated in our nation’s Capital, there was little to celebrate for struggling families all across our land. That all changes – starting right here, and right now, because this moment is your moment: it belongs to you. It belongs to everyone gathered here today and everyone watching all across America. This is your day. This is your celebration. And this, the United States of America, is your country. What truly matters is not which party controls our government, but whether our government is controlled by the people. January 20th 2017, will be remembered as the day the people became the rulers of this nation again. The forgotten men and women of our country will be forgotten no longer. Everyone is listening to you now. You came by the tens of millions to become part of a historic movement the likes of which the world has never seen before. At the center of this movement is a crucial conviction: that a nation exists to serve its citizens. Americans want great schools for their children, safe neighborhoods for their families, and good jobs for themselves. These are the just and reasonable demands of a righteous public. But for too many of our citizens, a different reality exists: Mothers and children trapped in poverty in our inner cities; rusted-out factories scattered like tombstones across the landscape of our nation; an education system, flush with cash, but which leaves our young and beautiful students deprived of knowledge; and the crime and gangs and drugs that have stolen too many lives and robbed our country of so much unrealized potential. This American carnage stops right here and stops right now. We are one nation – and their pain is our pain. Their dreams are our dreams; and their success will be our success. We share one heart, one home, and one glorious destiny. The oath of office I take today is an oath of allegiance to all Americans. For many decades, we’ve enriched foreign industry at the expense of American industry; Subsidized the armies of other countries while allowing for the very sad depletion of our military; We've defended other nation’s borders while refusing to defend our own; And spent trillions of dollars overseas while America's infrastructure has fallen into disrepair and decay. We’ve made other countries rich while the wealth, strength, and confidence of our country has disappeared over the horizon. One by one, the factories shuttered and left our shores, with not even a thought about the millions upon millions of American workers left behind. The wealth of our middle class has been ripped from their homes and then redistributed across the entire world. But that is the past. And now we are looking only to the future. We assembled here today are issuing a new decree to be heard in every city, in every foreign capital, and in every hall of power. From this day forward, a new vision will govern our land. From this moment on, it’s going to be America First. Every decision on trade, on taxes, on immigration, on foreign affairs, will be made to benefit American workers and American families. We must protect our borders from the ravages of other countries making our products, stealing our companies, and destroying our jobs. Protection will lead to great prosperity and strength. I will fight for you with every breath in my body – and I will never, ever let you down. America will start winning again, winning like never before. We will bring back our jobs. We will bring back our borders. We will bring back our wealth. And we will bring back our dreams. We will build new roads, and highways, and bridges, and airports, and tunnels, and railways all across our wonderful nation. We will get our people off of welfare and back to work – rebuilding our country with American hands and American labor. We will follow two simple rules: Buy American and Hire American. We will seek friendship and goodwill with the nations of the world – but we do so with the understanding that it is the right of all nations to put their own interests first. We do not seek to impose our way of life on anyone, but rather to let it shine as an example for everyone to follow. We will reinforce old alliances and form new ones – and unite the civilized world against Radical Islamic Terrorism, which we will eradicate completely from the face of the Earth. At the bedrock of our politics will be a total allegiance to the United States of America, and through our loyalty to our country, we will rediscover our loyalty to each other. When you open your heart to patriotism, there is no room for prejudice. The Bible tells us, “how good and pleasant it is when God’s people live together in unity.” We must speak our minds openly, debate our disagreements honestly, but always pursue solidarity. When America is united, America is totally unstoppable. There should be no fear – we are protected, and we will always be protected. We will be protected by the great men and women of our military and law enforcement and, most importantly, we are protected by God. Finally, we must think big and dream even bigger. In America, we understand that a nation is only living as long as it is striving. We will no longer accept politicians who are all talk and no action – constantly complaining but never doing anything about it. The time for empty talk is over. Now arrives the hour of action. Do not let anyone tell you it cannot be done. No challenge can match the heart and fight and spirit of America. We will not fail. Our country will thrive and prosper again. "We stand at the birth of a new millennium, ready to unlock the mysteries of space, to free the Earth from the miseries of disease, and to harness the energies, industries and technologies of tomorrow. A new national pride will stir our souls, lift our sights, and heal our divisions. It is time to remember that old wisdom our soldiers will never forget: that whether we are black or brown or white, we all bleed the same red blood of patriots, we all enjoy the same glorious freedoms, and we all salute the same great American Flag. And whether a child is born in the urban sprawl of Detroit or the windswept plains of Nebraska, they look up at the same night sky, they fill their heart with the same dreams, and they are infused with the breath of life by the same almighty Creator. So to all Americans, in every city near and far, small and large, from mountain to mountain, and from ocean to ocean, hear these words: You will never be ignored again. Your voice, your hopes, and your dreams, will define our American destiny. And your courage and goodness and love will forever guide us along the way. Together, We Will Make America Strong Again. We Will Make America Wealthy Again. We Will Make America Proud Again. We Will Make America Safe Again. And, Yes, Together, We Will Make America Great Again. Thank you, God Bless You, And God Bless America."
