Nikita Krushchev knew you libs would get your way until you wake up in a country you won't recognize.

"Your children's children will live under communism. You Americans are so gullible. No, you won't accept communism outright; but we'll keep feeding you small doses of socialism until you will finally wake up and find that you already have communism. We won't have to fight you; WE'LL SO WEAKEN YOUR ECONOMY, until you fall like overripe fruit into our hands."

Nikita Krushchev, 1959

Looks like we're nearly there.

Good Morning all... I would say.." Happy Fools Day", but that is almost everyday in here ,lol.. no offence, was just a funny :)... Status.. re. last night,," Whoa Daddy"... I think that was really big of you ( i mean it ) to decline the challange of Creation with Rightwing. It takes a smart folk to say that they are not able to prove what they cannot. On your topic of Religion, i think you were led down the garden path at an early age and feel bad that you had no one to help you sort things out. I could answer your questions as could R.W and Spelly, ( and others ) but , alas, this is not the site for this to be done. You are not a child anymore but a Man, and if you ever do decide to want to find the answers to your questions, i"m sure you could find someone to help you, that is my prayer for you even if you don"t want it :).... and , no,, don"t be asking the Easter Bunny ,lol.....

Good morning everyone, I see a number of the morons surfaced already. My wife and I attended the fundraiser for Premier Wynne last evening. This was the largest fundraiser ever done in Sault Ste Marie with 600 plates sold at 250.00 per. Congratulations to Premier Wynne and all who worked to organize this venue. Generally these are old fogey events but this was different, a lot more women and students. Also maybe not so surprisingly there were a large number of the P.C. heavy hitter variety in attendance. The smart money seems to be with Wynne so rant on Swampers. Have a great day all.

rw Obviously a smart fellow like Status didn't feel qualified to enter a debate with you. My question to you would be other than a plumber's ticket, just what the hell would qualify you to debate that subject other than your infamous opinion? April fool to you Swampers also. 600 people paid that to see and hear Wynne, many of them very prominent residents of the Sault but you Swampers of course believe you are smarter than they are. The food started with cold cuts, cheese trays and anti pasta. The main course was prime rib, massed potatoes and veggies. Both white and red wine at the tables and two open bars. Something like this took weeks to put in place but the Dipper moron Mantha walks out of parliament because he said she just ran away. Now Hudak will either retract his statements and apologize or be charged. Now only addled thinking would bring anyone to the conclusion that there is any choice here.

Putin Responds to Obama by Ordering Hit

Russian President Vladimir Putin has put a hit out on Ellen DeGeneres, the affable television host and longtime Obama supporter, according to Moscow-based network RT.

The command to take out DeGeneres, 56, comes in response to Obama’s order to freeze bank accounts of key Putin associates, including his foot masseuse, his Zumba instructor and Yuri Ugolev, a childhood friend Putin has not seen in 50 years.

“By going after those close to him, the White House is waging a very personal war on Vladimir Putin,” said Kremlin historian Dmitry Yershov. “It’s vital to understand that he’s a very touchy fellow, and he sees the world like a big game of Grand Theft Auto. Tit for tat. Or as we say in Russia, three tits for one tat. Or among former KGB, 12 tits for a perceived tat.”

Sources from within the Kremlin say Putin wants to get Obama where it will hurt the most: among his base of celebrity supporters, many of whom are joining the last-ditch effort to increase enrollments for the beleaguered Obamacare.

DeGeneres, host of the popular Ellen DeGeneres Show, is one of the most vocal promoters of Obama and his signature health care program. It was on the show last week that Obama announced that all young, healthy people who sign up before March 31 will get a pair of autographed panties from Beyoncé.

“Putin knows very well that Obama needs his celebrities to prop him up,” Yershov said. “Obama’s approval ratings are dropping, and he’s increasingly seen as weak in regards to the conflicts in Syria and Ukraine.”

“Today Putin orders Ellen to be knocked off, and tomorrow it will be Oprah, Bruce Springsteen, or even the pretty, pretty, pretty Scarlett Johansson,” Yershov said. “He will stop at nothing to get at those dear to Obama.”

White House press secretary Jay Carney warned that if Russian agents begin rubbing out Obama’s favorite celebrity supporters, the U.S. will respond with even fiercer sanctions, including ordering U.S.-based fashion label Oscar de la Renta to cease giving discounts to Putin’s two daughters.

notpc 4/1/2014 11:54:06 AM Report


I read your post yesterday about why you can't believe in the God of the Bible and it resonated with me. Most of what you said is exactly what I used to say. I would debate Christians, ask them the hard questions and watch them squirm trying to answer them.

Until I met God. Not in a tangible, burning bush type experience, but slowly through investigating God's claims with an open mind. And that's the key, an open mind. No doubt your mind is made up and nothing is likely to change it at this time. But I found that when I stopped insisting that I had to understand all the apparent contradictions and paradoxes in God's character and actions, and started focusing on what God claimed my responsibility to Him was, those other issues temporarily took second place.

I then found God, put my faith in His Son, and then proceeded to study His Bible like I never had before. One thing I found was that I started to see and understand God's perspective on some of these hard issues. I still wrestle with some of them but I don't make my complete understanding of those things a prerequisite to believing in Him anymore. I came to realize that if I could understand God perfectly, I would be infinite which would mean that I was equal to God and wouldn't need Him. Since I know that I'm not infinite, making myself a god who claims to be able to judge God would be ludicrous.

What I've said probably won't resonate all that much with you, but I wanted you to know how one person who used to think like you came to faith in God. anyway.

Leaking the goodies from the next Provincial budget, so people can think about them in the weeks to come is about as low as you can get in politics, talk about trying to buy votes.. One or even two items could be seen as a leak, but vitually all the budget a month beforehand that's a waterfall.. What ever happened to keeping the budget secret so that no-one could profit from any items in it. It is time to take the "party" out of politics, at all levels, government talks about corruption in third world countries should start looking at themselves..

On the IPCC story, it's interesting how the small print stuff about how the economic costs of global warming are not going to be nearly as bad as their computer models predicted, got buried, but the propaganda is front and centre. The hyperbole seems to be designed to distract everyone from the factual stuff in this report. It's working too as most (not all) of the media is just eating it up. I suspect most of the public has seen enough baloney from the IPCC over the years that it isn't buying it to the same extent that the media is. At least I hope so.

Good evening mallet, here I'm drinking my tea and enjoying the weather, no matter how much it kicks, the old man winter is dead... but ready for another time.

Better you hurry up if you're planning a shopping spree in town, before the river overflows.

Maybe you don't remember the 70s and 80s when "top" scientists were warning of the dangers of global cooling. They were predicting that by now we would be walking on glaciers throughout much of the Northern Hemisphere and that the only solutions were very expensive ones, involving people giving up control to governments. And by the way, they said the science was settled. Sound familiar?

The "deniers" in those days would have been those who took those silly predictions with a grain of salt. The deniers (skeptics is a better word) turned out to be right. They probably will be again.

Mallet for someone who has been pretty blind about Harper you now profess to have a clear vision of the new provincial leader. Just were in the hell was this exceptional vision when Steve was pooching the pup and still is? Wynne has said that she was not part of Dalton's gas plant fiasco many times and yet you tell me she hasn't distanced herself. I think you had better go and play with the rest of the biased crew.

I can find 600 people to fork out $1200 for a membership golfing and have something to do all summer instead of supporting a looser.
Bobby Nerves 4/1/2014 7:05:10 PM Report

bounder, should I be a looser Ontario Premier for one week, you're not gonna be reading much from me thereafter.

Neither would I be fishing and hunting, nor living in the soo and scavenging the forest to heat the house in winter.

I guarantee it.

I agree Steelworker just like Harper didn't know about the senate scandal and the Robocalls. Deny deny your way to the poll box.
Bobby Nerves 4/1/2014 7:28:32 PM Report

You're barking to the wrong tree, boy.

I said it before and now again, I'd like to be a looser Ontario Premier for two days, not even a week. I know where the sun raises and where it sets.

Don't add anything, neither remove anything from it.

There is one major difference. The global cooling hypothesis had little support in the scientific community.

trevone 4/1/2014 8:11:47 PM Report

I read Bobby Nerves and about half of what he says is comprehensible, if not sensible. The rest makes absolutely no sense. Am I the only one who notices this? He might begin by getting verbs "sit" and nouns "seat" figured out!

Me dear lady
I am not a bully...really I am not.Your last post was an excellent one. You made your point in clear concise form. Why can't you always do that instead of filling your messages with """''' lol,,lol,,""" ... crap like a schoolgirl. That is what is annoying, not the occasional spelling error.
Oh,I hope all goes well with your little pal tomorrow.

Gee, another critic of the English language! I have been told that Bobby is learning English so just go with it and let him learn please... Good grief.. did i just stand up for the " piglet"???... Now i know it"s really April Fools Day!!!! Tomorrows another day......
trevone 4/1/2014 8:42:32 PM Report

absolutely not, Irish. I am not talking about the appalling spelling and punctuation errors that God has given you, but the fact that I can make absolutely no sense of some of Bobby's posts. He seems intent to be funny, in his special way, but he might do better if he decided to improve himself in English first!

39% of Canadians smoke marijuana?
Wherever that statistic came from (the Marijuana Party?), it is crock of dung.

Speaking of crocks of dung, I am drawn again to the black hole of dungness (hadn't noticed that post before).

I conducted a survey of college students a few years ago and it seems that over 60% have smoked mj. In my day (I'm 62) I would guess the number would be higher (yup "higher"). I haven't smoked any in about 15 years, but you are so naïve "learning" and Grace if you think that Justin has lost points on his admission. Whatever MacKay says or whatever groups puff themselves up in righteous indignation, the reality is most people have smoked mj and do not consider it a big deal. Right rw and wisen?

I think you will agree that I have changed my opinion of Mr Harper of late and have told him and Mr Hayes that too. You have seen some of the Emails I have sent them, that should tell you something.. Now as for Ms Wynne, she has had a year to clear out all the Mcguinty supporters but has done what? appointed our David as a junior minister, not exactly what I call distancing yourself. Now as for saying she protests her not knowing about the gas plants, I am sorry but I do not buy that, as one of Mcguinty's inner circle she had to have known. As for the deleting of memo's that may be damaging, would you in her place, not want to make sure there was no evidence of anything that would connect you. Do not forget these are politicians we are talking about, not ordinary people who really have no damaging past to haunt their future. Remember that old saying ... there's no smoke without fire..

Wait bounder, please, stay there that I'm having a bigger fish to fry.

You see, here you have a good example to learn from. You don't have to be Harper neither a big politician, just in our little world, at home, in the community, the one that stab you is the closest to you.

Why, you'll ask?

Well, because you let your arms down with those that you know, and those are the ones that will stab you. The one you don't know and you have never met, you be prepared with your protection shields up.

But these people are so easy that are not even worth a fight.

Just caught Stewart taking down CNN as regards their "coverage" or rather their production of the soap opera they claim is news about the missing Malaysian airplane ... sadly hilarious.

Whereas Fox "News" is the whore of the Teaparty/Crazy Republican Wing ... CNN is just a ratings whore.
