  1. One of the things that went by the wayside in the last 20 or 30 years (improving lately thou) is how a band / artist sounded "live". Studio stuff was their forte...and how they actually sounded in reality was a very pale comparison...and quite brutal at times. For reference, I give you someone who was exceptionally BETTER live...and the message is still valid.
  2. The rest of the story... "Municipal police officers across the province started wearing the colourful protest pants to demonstrate against provincial pension reforms that affect over 65,000 firefighters, police officers and municipal white- and blue-collar workers."
  3. Divorce papers served... "Britain's departure from the EU is "an historic moment from which there can be no turning back", Theresa May has said. She was speaking after Britain's EU ambassador formally triggered the two year exit process by handing a letter to EU Council President Donald Tusk. A sombre-looking Mr Tusk said it was not a "happy day" for him or the EU."
  4. 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!
  5. Jerry says it well...
  6. 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.
  7. Curious what you think of the reverser deployment at this stage?
  8. 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."
  9. LOL...that's funny! I'm just waiting for your posts from Pravda.
  10. your obtuse point. What, relatively speaking had Trudeau Jr. done in the same time frame dagger old boy?
  11. ^^^ 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.
  12. 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!
  13. ^^^ 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
