  1. The world is gone to hell. Exactly .000002% of the population identifies as neither male or female. What are we doing catering to an extremely small subset of people? Anybody who can't deal with a greeting of "hello ladies and gentlemen" shouldn't be allowed out in public let alone on an aircraft.
  2. Well, Jeeez, if you know me at all you'd know the answer to that question. Don't I have a reputation here? My default is; "We're going to the alternate!" I only land if I have no excuse.
  3. Boooo! No Facebook videos allowed!
  4. Go around? Totally could have made that!
  5. You must be new around here. Jakr's posts and the reasoning behind -no spacebar - has been discussed. You might want to cut him some slack.
  6. Fake or not, who knows. The question you have to ask yourself is; based on the personal integrity demonstrated by JT in the past do you think it's "likely" to be true or does it seem completely out-of-character and therefore implausible?
  7. Well, I don't know if it's the only solution. The problem is that if you give all the power to the people with the money you get a hugely stratefied society with the potential (very likely potential) for exploitation. The converse, of course, is that if you give the masses the ability to reach into the pocket of the people who have money - they'll take it! So there's got to be some sort of balance. Maybe the solution is to have progressive voting authority similar to our progressive tax system - everyone gets at least one vote but the more you pay in taxes the more votes you get.
  8. Personally I think we should back to the old way - property owners get a vote, everyone else "sit down and shut up!" Maybe could be expanded to; "if you don't actually pay any income tax - no vote for you!"
  9. Probably thinking all the "good" codes had been taken. ? Haha!!!!
  10. We cut the end open and wash/rinse them out - make excellent freezer bags and lunch bags.
  11. You keep posting this. You're right it isn't a 2nd amendment guarantee but gun ownership is the established norm. If you, or anyone else, has a problem with that why don't you move to a jurisdiction without guns? I can tell you this - the plan to remove the legally owned guns from licensed gun-owners will fail and will lead to more heartache and pain for the anti-gun crowd than they can imagine. If you think it will be sunshine and roses you're in for a rude awakening.
  12. I must say Wolfhunter, you're very well-spoken. You have a way of reducing issues to their core - did you miss your calling as a journalist? Why are you hanging around here with the likes of us?
  13. If a properly licensed firearms owner wants to take his legally owned and legally stored rifle to a licensed, inspected and safely run range to shoot holes in paper targets why do the wishes of anyone else come into it? Personally, I think golf courses are a massive waste of space that could be used for better purposes, same for downhill skiing, and motorcycles and don't even get me started on jetskiis!
  14. We are now faced with the possibility of a minority Trudeau government propped up by the economically illiterate NDP and Greens. The consequences of that would be devastating for Canadians. Truer words were never spoken. https://nationalpost.com/opinion/columnists/jean-its-up-to-ontarios-voters-to-save-canada-from-trudeau/wcm/136b47bc-a284-43cf-8186-bc40cd8c8a32
  15. While I hope that Canadians wake up and make JT a one-term PM, I do not hope for this to be true - that's just bad for everyone.
  16. I think the "scandal" being hinted at is that Trudeau, as a 29 year old teacher, was involved with an underage student at the school not that he did this when he was a student. Of course I have no proof of this, just what I read on another forum.
  17. Wow! How does it work? Where do you put the batteries?
  18. Hey, I'm just gullible enough to believe it and just careless enough to post it here!
  19. Not at this time, haven't had a chance to think about it. Anyway, don't know anything about the Buffalo Chronicle - they probably are full of scam/sham/fakery - don't know. Point however stands - just because something shows up first on a flakey site does not disprove it.
  20. Just because something shows up on a flakey site first does not prove it's false. And, BTW, "Canadaland" is a steaming pile - wouldn't use anything they say as a source to back up my posts.
  21. 1. Five moderators? Why? And why five women? Having five women is straight up virtue-signalling and serves no useful purpose. Having five moderators at all is like using every spice on the spice rack and hoping the recipe turns out. 2. Forty seconds to respond? Especially when the other leaders are allowed to interrupt and heckle? The moderator should put the question to each leader and each should have 3,4 maybe 5 minutes to answer - no chatter or interruptions from others. As a voter I want the time to answer to be long enough that I can actually hear some details and long enough that if the candidates doesn't have something to say it will be obvious - forty seconds can be filled with fluff. 3. After 1:45 of legitimate debate, question and answer, we could have the 15 minute cage-match section - where each leader gets to ask one other about something.
  22. I have a couple of strategies I use for unwanted calls 1) - if the call display shows some sort of obvious spoofed number I answer and hangup immediately which breaks the call and stops the ringing. 2) - if the call display shows a local number or some area code that might be a legitimate call I answer and say "Hello" but if a person doesn't reply within 1 or 2 seconds I immediately hangup. The voice recognition system for the automated caller is pretty fast but still takes 4-5 seconds to recognize a person has answered, route the call to their human and for them to say something. If you learn to recognize this delay you can avoid most robo-calls. 3) - if their system is really fast and I don't hangup fast enough I'll just keep saying; "hello", "hello!", "hello?" and stuff like; "who's there?" Pretending as if I can't hear their side of the conversation - very annoying for them and makes them think there's technical problem at their end. Then I hangup.
