‘Let Russia do what they want’: Rob Ford opposes rainbow flag flying at Toronto City Hall


"This is about being patriotic to your country, this is not about someone's sexual preference. No, I do not agree with putting out a rainbow flag," Ford told reporters at city hall. He later added, “Let Russia do what they want.”

Good morning everyone. Steely too late, the lid came off at 6:31;49 this am when you posted. Must be nasty in the swamp eh? Gurpy when we have our little get togethers ,(summits),everyone is welcome, escorted or not. I personally have met some very nice and interesting people. That said I have yet to meet any of the swampers. It must be too far to crawl ,getting there and back. I suppose all those that live on the dark side have trouble coming out into the light, for whatever reason. Have a great day all.

This question came to me overnight.It is a variation on if a tree falls in the forest and there is no one there does it make a noise?
If a swamper makes a statement from on or under the water and nobody cares does it count in our collective discussion?
Could that explain why they continue to troll in the ether of the internet? Does the sun hurt their eyes after hours in the darkness of doubt and ignorance?
Hmm...I'm sure our resident expert on everything will muster a response with his followers.

Sometimes, you have to think like a fish, then you can understand the reasoning of some people. Just for a second you imagine a fish moving out from the water and seeing all this world of us, which is totally unknown to a fish. Specially a sucker, just out the water and discovering roads, and houses and people. Of course, if you're not capable of figuring it out, you know nothing about roll playing.

Everything goes OK, till the sucker just stands there watching the brightness on top of the light pole; and then he discover a truck, just when it rolls over it.

How many posters do you think are registered on SooToday?
Of that amount how many attend a "summit"?
A rather miniscule number compared to the amount of posters on this site wouldn't you say.
So what does that tell you about the underlying reason that the vast majority of folks post on here.
Is it "mental masturbation", as our pal statusquo puts it or to meet fellow posters.
Fairly safe to say it has nothing to do with crawling, or coming out from the dark, or any of your other ridiculous assertions.
...and if you have not met any of the "swampers" as you like to put it...did it ever occur to you that they/we have no interest in meeting you.

Hi Grump: In response to your early note, I have attended at least four or five "summits", including one where we sat next to each other and had a pleasant discussion, despite the fact that I made it very clear that I support the current federal government. That being said, it does not mean that I agree with everything that they do. I think that politics and religion are things where you subscribe to the group that you consider most applicable to your views. Therefore, although I practice one form of religion, it does not mean that I have to agree with every facet of it. Similarly, with politics. I am currently enjoying the weather here in the Palm Springs, California, area. My relatives here are complaining that it is cold because the temperature is only 72F. The swimming pool is kept at 92F though. I don't want to return, but have to be back around the end of the month.

I have to say that when they first announced that snowboarding was going to be an Olympic event I was skeptical.
That thought sure was put to rest by the unbelievable performances by these young snow boarders, both the men's and women's competitions.
What they do on those boards is nothing short of a breath taking miracle performance.
Canada now has a bronze in this event and the kid had a broken rib...I can't even stand up on one of those things.

You, and those like you, deride those who warn that manmade emissions are causing the earth's air temperature to rise. Calling them names and otherwise being disrespectful and dismissive is generally the modus operandi. On Wednesday (the 15th) an article was published on the Opinion pages of the Tampa Bay Times. Google "No evidence behind climate denialism" and read that piece. If that doesn't cause you to wonder then I think I would be safe in concluding that there is no "wonder" in you. Certainly no science."

Who da thunk that the grandmaster of google couldn't find this article. Is it because you didn't want to be bothered? Doesn't fit with your theories? Whatever was the reason it really doesn't matter, does it? If you are being honest you've got a pretty good idea of the answer.

Bobby Nerves 2/8/2014 3:15:27 PM Report

Sometimes people challenge posters like Flyhawlk and other time Spellchecker, and I have appreciation and respect for both of them, mostly for Fly as he was born a slightly before me.

Now, this issue of challenges and comparatives, typical in the cons field, like: us or the child abusers and situations of that nature, are not new, not at all.

Sometimes, we step in the arena fueled for our principles and things don't work that way.

Here is a variation of Aesop's fable, The Monkey King:

The Lion was feeling strong and proud and wanted to confirm he was the king of the jungle.
As he went about the Majestic African Jungle, the Lion met the Monkey,
stopped and asked him: "Who is the King of the Jungle?"
The Monkey bowed and answered "You Sire".

With a smile of satisfaction and feeling grand and reassured the Lion saw the Hyena and repeated the question to the Hyena who again confirmed that indeed the Lion was the King of the Jungle.

The Lion then noticed an Elephant towering above him. Solemnly chewing the bark of a Mopani tree.
"Who is the King of the Jungle?" the Lion briskly demanded of the elephant.

Now the elephant large and dominating believes himself to be the king of the jungle and he did not appreciate this little upstart bothering him while he was eating. So without further ado the elephant swooped the Lion off its feet
and threw him against the Mopani tree.

Before the Lion could shake his senses back, the elephant picked it up again and beat him against a rock.

The Lion managed to break free from the powerful grip of the elephant's trunk, stood at a distance and said:

"No, no, no, you do not have to be so nasty and violent, just because you do not know the answer".

But the question remains who is the king of the Jungle?

As for cost Boots are in the $100 range, leather gloves $50/75 apron $300/100 depending leather or canvas..

Pride flags are flying from coast to coast for the duration of the Olympics.

A foul mouth is a sign of an uneducated person. Just ask Grump.
David Poluck 2/8/2014 6:49:36 PM Report

Thanks Grump for your response to my question. At some point there has to be an adjustment. We may see a resurgence when the next election is called.

Flying the rainbow flag is a one time thing, for this occasion only, showing Mr Putin that not everybody is a bigoted as_hole like he is.
This is 2014, sexual orientation is not even worth discussing, let alone sending someone to jail for.
As far as respecting other countries' laws and norms.....I totally disagree.
Stoning women for adultery, cutting off hands for petty theft, ritualistic genital mutilation is not something we should "respect" or tolerate.
In my humble opinion we should also raise the rainbow flag in front of the Saudi and Ugandan embassy .

Evening folks.. This message is for MALLET and has to do with our little chit chat about weiners on Feb. 6th. and 7th.that we had in the red room. Since the red room is a Social Room, i best say my piece in here as it has to do with the Male Anatomy called the Penis. Now dear,, i really thought you would be apologizing for making it sound like i was the one that suggested that you stick a pill up your weiner ( as you call your Penis that ) so your dog could eat it. You know full well that i said to put your dogs pill IN a weinier and she might swallow it better. You turned it all around and made a lewd joke of it making it seem that i was the one responsible for it.. I was not impressed!! Since i did not receive a proper apology,, just that you were having some fun, after i corrected you.. does not make the grade! It seems to me that you need a little clarification on the difference between a "" weiner" ( that is what you called your " penis " right? ).. and a Penis.... A weiner.. is a form of meat, and a .. Penis.. is part of the Male Anatomy which is connected to the Testicles. Since you seem to think that your Penis is a weiner, then we must assume that you call your Testies wee marshmallows and in your case you may be right as you did not stand up like a Man and apologize to the fact that you were the one making the lewd jokes and not meself. You said that i didn"t clarify meself by not adding that a "" weiner"" should be called a .. weiner hot dog...Do i have to spell that one out for you also??.. The weiner is the meat and the bun it sits in is called a .. hotdog bun.... I hope this clears up any confusion that you might still think that your Penis is a weiner, you know,, that is what the wee children call it, but i had assumned that you were a grown Man and knew the difference, i thought wrong.... I still think an apology is due... if your " marshmallows are up to it... thank you,, that"s all.....

We were having a good time at camp 'til I dropped my weiner in the fire.

Irishfey..

I am sorry that you found my reply to your suggestion offensive. It was not meant to be as others found it funny. I am sorry that I forgot that the some Irish are somewhat straight laced,however I shall not make that mistake again. You have a nice life..
irishfey 2/8/2014 7:45:08 PM Report

Mallet.. Thank you very much... The case is now closed on this issue. You have a nice life also and i hope that your dog gives you a few more years of joy....
irishfey 2/8/2014 8:09:52 PM Report

Mallet.. I apologize to you also for posting what i did, i should have just let it go and forget about it.... I wouldn"t be able to sleep tonight without saying this....

Hey swampers I'm back. Did you three amigos get your feelings hurt? Too bad. I'm sad but that said I don't give a furry rat's butt if you rude clowns have hurt feelings or not. You fellows have to be triplets because three families couldn't have raised three like you on their own. Bounder going out to eat at a nice place is called fine dining. You stick with your grits and hog jowls and don't forget the wormy perch. I'm glad you three have each others shoulders to cry on about big bad Grump. TLMAO

stats, the Olympics are not about debating a country's laws.

SO... Debate it in another way. Not using the Olympics as an excuse and ruining it for everyone.

That's the bottom line.
Hunter101 2/8/2014 9:07:15 PM Report

It speaks volumes of a country's respect for another when we impose our values on them in this sense.

This is how the USA got its negative reputation. By policing both physically and politically.
