  1. An update from the Atlantic Monthly
  2. ^^So 29% of immigrants who arrived less than 5 years ago still aren't working.
  3. Garneau said airlines would never invent mechanical problems to avoid having to pay out. A little naive I think.
  4. Ford is doing exactly what the people that voted for him want him to do. He won a majority government, too bad so sad for you that didn't vote for him.
  5. Qubeccor? and another Qubec company Mach?
  6. There is all the flooding going on in Ontario and Quebec, 2000 members of the military called out, mayors and politicians screaming for volunteers to come and help sandbag. We have thousands of asylum seekers being housed, clothed and fed at our expense, why aren't they being "volunteered" to help? Don't need language skills or any other skill set, just pick up a shovel.
  7. So is automation at fault, or did Boeing sabotage an Airbus to get the heat off them?
  8. That must be true, every time deicer posts something I ignore it.
  9. For all of MSNBC’s flaws, and there are many, at least Democrats are not played for fools by that far-left outlet. Unlike CNN, which insults its audience with its laughable pose as objective, MSNBC makes no secret of its left-wing biases.
  10. I'm all for it as long as we stay on DST, I like the extra hour of light in the afternoon not the morning.
  11. Debt is $22 trillion - lets spend more
  12. It was a school day for me, we all crowded into the auditorium and listened to the broadcast.
  13. My values are my Canadian values, not the Liberal values. Everyone who voluntarily left to fight, marry or anything else to/for ISIS I would immediately refuse them return or citizenship. Watching the CTV news last night I just got more and more disgusted. I have zero empathy for these losers. Now on 60 Minutes last night they had a report on the return of some of the girls/women that boko haram kidnapped. I will support those people financially, emotionaly or any other way I can.
  14. Keep your long underwear handy...
  15. I did not have sexual relations with that woman.
  16. Apparently he died in India at age 30 from Crohn's disease but he is still moving money around in his account. Hmmmmm.
  17. An Old Pilot's Reflections Pilots are people who drive airplanes for other people who can't fly. Passengers are people who say they fly, but really just ride. Fighter Pilots are steely eyed, weapons systems managers who kill bad people and break things. However, they can also be very charming and personable. The average fighter pilot, despite sometimes having a swaggering exterior, is very much capable of such feelings as love, affection, intimacy and caring. (However, these feelings don't involve anyone else.) Flying is a hard way to earn an easy living. Both optimists and pessimists contribute to society. The optimist invents the airplane; the pessimist invents the parachute. Death is just nature's way of telling you to watch your airspeed. As a pilot only two bad things can happen to you (and one of them will): a. One day you will walk out to the aircraft, knowing it is your last flight. b. One day you will walk out to the aircraft, not knowing it is your last flight. There are rules and there are laws: The rules are made by men who think that they know how to fly your airplane better than you. The laws (of physics) were ordained by God. You can and sometimes should suspend the rules, but you can never suspend the laws. About Rules: a. The rules are a good place to hide if you don't have a better idea and the talent to execute it. b. If you deviate from a rule, it must be a flawless performance (e.g., if you fly under a bridge, don't hit the bridge.) Before each flight, make sure that your bladder is empty and your fuel tanks are full. He who demands everything that his aircraft can give him is a pilot; he who demands one iota more is a fool. There are certain aircraft sounds that can only be heard at night and over the ocean. Most of them are scary. The aircraft limits are only there in case there is another flight by that particular aircraft. If subsequent flights do not appear likely, there are no limits. In the Alaskan bush I'd rather have a two-hour bladder and three hours of gas than vice versa. An old pilot is one who can remember when flying was dangerous and sex was safe. Airlines have really changed; now a flight attendant can get a pilot pregnant. I've flown in both pilot seats. Can someone tell me why the other seat is always occupied by an idiot? And my favorite; You have to make up your mind about growing up and becoming a pilot, because you can't do both.
  18. Agree! We have the RCMP helping illegal entrants across the border, at least these folks were all vetted by security before they entered.
  19. ^Really? I don't know where pilots get the reputation as being primadonnas.
  20. But both the victims were black and presumably the shooters as well. Gangs get rich then get dead
  21. What happened to Canada being a secular nation with separation of church and state?
  22. Kinda like when people illegally cross the border and we are expected to feed water and accommodate them, indefinitely.
