Good morning fellows and everyone still pounding their ears on the pillow. It would certainly be nice to miss that storm but with the weekend here it isn't likely. The Adults had some good posts last evening, every time I had a break yesterday and came on I was wading through the Harperette morons defending the indefensible. Time waits for no man, catch you later. Have a great day, even you morons.

That is what makes a good group of people so powerful.

Smart people are smart and the 'morons' more than often show or illustrate items that are on topic but appear to be worthless. No one is ever a true moron.
No opinion is worthless. Not one.

I forgot to welcome you aboard yesterday.
Sorry, how rude of me.
I am going under the assumption, for now, that you are new to this site...not another re-invented former's a liberal thing.
It is obvious that you are a lefty.

So to sum things up you believe that a global thermonuclear war has a great possibility of breaking out or is imminent...and is it to be over the Ukraine ??, thus millions will die.
Do I have it correct so far?
The first wars we could not stop due to limited communications and understanding but we could stop a nuclear war (or any war) cause we have the media, twitter and face-book and can make some calls.
Feel free to correct and add anything you like as it will not affect my question.
You are going to fit in just perfect here with the rest of the gang by the way.

My question is this...who is going to make the threat and actually launch.

...and yes I do have a great sense of humour, thank is why I just love this site as I do.

I will look for your answer later and perhaps we can debate some more...I'll try and not make it slimy for you.

Oh...and Peace To All.

rockbanger 4/4/2014 10:39:36 AM Report

Hey RW

Yes I am to be labelled it must be 'centre-left" not left wing. Also I believe the North American right wingers are children and grandchildren of the corrosive cold war mentality.

Do you think Harper or this John Baird's family members go and fight? Not a chance.

Who will start the war... hopefully logic prevails and the reality of the first 2 atomic weapons have not been forgotten. So I hope nobody will start such a war. Understand today the US brags about possessing small tactical nuclear weapons... Not as big but still deadly on a massive scale.

My big concern is how quick Harper and the right wing jumped on isolating Russia. Isolation never works and is counter productive.

For the record, I am not saying we allow Putin to roll all over Europe with his war machine and AGAIN... Crimea had a vote and 96% of the people were in favour of going back to Russia. Thus, right now we look like little kids pouting.

If Quebec wants to separate and have a vote will Harper move in the tanks? Better not. I am tired of the Quebec separation talk but it could become a reality some day? Hope not but it is possible.

Harper and our local conservative member are puppets of a much larger and sinister group of right wing nuts... This cabal make money from war and stagnate during times of peace.

If anyone reading this wants to move our army over to Ukraine right away... Ask yourself why? Then ask if our governments actions in the last month are justifiable.

Logic tells us that we must give this a bit of time and try negotiation not violent rhetoric.
We as Canadians have lost our sense of world leadership and follow the US leads without question. Remember that the US is a war machine.

I recall Jean Chretian as a TRUE leader said NO to the US war machine and refused to go into Iraq. Genius or maybe just some rational thinking

cheers to all

Hello Irishfey

Yes we meet all kinds in this world and that is what makes it interesting. I am relatively new to this posting and am having a good deal of laughs...!

Religion has had its history with war but the last 100 years of war is all about the control of energy, control of money and control of power. Unfortunately the cost or human toll has been huge. I urge all Canadians to dog any coming draft.

We can at least bark at our elected officials and let them know that the little people are not willing to fight for the big corporations any more.

We all do stupid things... Look at the 'Sault Riding' we voted in a conservative who has done nothing for us...
He is a member of a majority government and is a master of sitting on his hands.
He does however use nice hair spray.. LOL

Recent jobs growth in Canada is DOUBLE the forecast.
Unemployment rate drops - again.

Combine this with recent news that Canada tops all of the G-7 countries in economic stability and growth projections.

There's that evil Harper at it again.

Cue the lefty outrage at this awful news.

But let's get all in a tizzy about requiring people to simply have to prove who they are and that they are eligible to vote at an election - a simple thing that just about all other developed nations - and even many third world nations - requires.

Bingo Grump ... Governments in Ontario and to the east are economic basket cases, similar to Obama's crappy performance down here.
The similarity is liberal politicians, that are clueless when it comes to job creation.
Obama's best idea to spur the economy is raising the minimum wage amd printing food stamps.
Wynne's and Dalton's was smart meters and cancelling gas plants and Marois is halting oil and gas exploration.
No wonder they don't have a pot to piss in.
learningaswego 4/4/2014 1:35:24 PM Report

Libs and Dips idea of job creation, is to add thousands to the government payroll (and mainly because they will then naturally vote for them - the old "gift horse" thing, and either:

-tax the crap out of the private sector people and companies who "produce"

and or

- borrow more and throw it on the rapidly growing debt heap, and let the kids and grandkids down the road have to deal with the mess.

They fail to grasp the SIMPLE CONCEPT that the ONLY way to secure a country's prosperity and future is a healthy, and growing PRIVATE sector, generating those (evil to a leftoid) PROFITS.

Celia may get a few as there are always the ones that seem to resent an M.P. or an M.P.P. who do a good job and for some reason think the Sault getting nothing is O.K. Any Politician who does not bring home the bacon shouldn't have been elected in the first place. We currently have one of the Conservative brand. How is that working out for everyone?
notpc 4/4/2014 4:06:48 PM Report


Regarding your post decrying the lack of job growth in Northern Ontario versus out west in the oilpatch, you are probably aware of the impact of rapidly escalating electricity prices in Ontario on jobs. Ontario's manufacturing sector as well as other sectors, haven't seen growth for a long time, and aren't likely to given the continued planned hydro price increases on the horizon.

Add to that the new licensing fees the Ontario government wants to impose on trades such as barbers, hairdressers, carpenters as well as health care practitioners who treat car accident victims, and you have a province that seems to be doing everything it can to discourage businesses from investing here.

Alberta and Saskatchewan appear to have a completely different mentality about job creation and it's working. We might be envious of them but we have only ourselves to blame by voting in the same tax and regulate provincial government 3 times.

I am missing something here, I had a disagrement regarding Senator Dallaire before and I have no wish to re-hash my opinion of the gentleman, but let me just say he would have been labelled LMF in my day and age. As to why Mr Hayes will not go into the Legions, perhaps not having served, and I do not know if he has or not, he does not feel comfortable in the company of men and women who have. Anymore than I would find myself uncomfortable amongst a club full of teachers or lawyers, being an uneducated old guy living in the sticks. I worked with a ERA who had retired after 25 years with the RCN, he seemed to be quite happy with his pension and benifits, now if you think that a military person should get a full pension after 5, 7, or 10 years service then I would have to say you are really out in left field, even teachers don't get that, maybe a week or two per year of service , but thats about all...

irishfey: while rw seems to like your 4:25:55 post to Grump (might have something to do with the bum fur that you refer to), I really have to ask who you think you were referring to when you mentioned Grump's friend "the Rat"? Because if that was a misguided reference to me, I do have a response for you.

Fess up now.....and no funny bum fur stuff. You and rw can keep that part of your personal exchanges.

T. I think it was a reference to Grump's signature expression "furry rat butt"

I never quite understood what is so special about a rat's anus..... or a cat's for that matter.
As in..."Hey Jim, how's that new snow machine working out for ya?"

"oh it's the cat's ass I tells ya!"

What is so pleasing about a cat's ass?

From the Urban dictionary...

cats ass
A person,thing or event to be held in high regard. From the meticulous treatment and devotional attention a feline bestowes on its hindquarters. Not in wide useage.
You look that good and can cook too? Damn if you ain't about the cats ass!

Here we go again...let's play the teacher response again.
How about responding to the issue?
Better yet - how about reading the news article?
And please - spare us the silly personal attacks.
It's getting old.

I got the Hayes flyer in the mail today that outlines what the Conservatives have done for the military. Impressive if its true.

Status, I have a dilemma that must be answered for those who love a good wine.

Somewhere, the bible indicate that wine (alcohol per say) is the man worst enemy.

But if you read a bit further, somewhere the bible also open the legs to say, that man should love his enemy.

Can you find the contradiction there... or was that paragraph just the work of and alcoholic scribe?

Or is the act of drinking a good wine, just an act of love?

Can you offer an unbiased response to this dilemma?

Are we not all allowed an opinion??
Tell me what your concern is, in what way is the military being victimised. What do you want to compare their employment with, a miner, a oil rig worker, what?? Would I feel out of place with a club full of people not that I am associated with, yes I would. Am I not allowed to say teachers, lawyers, doctors, prefer to socialise in their own circles, rather than with the blue coller people?? I was not picking on teachers just using them and lawyers as a means of equating the differences you would seem to dispute. As for the personal attacks, I do not think I attacked you personally, I have a great difference of opinion in regards to Senator Dallaire however..

Mallet: Bryan Hayes is pretty familiar with the military. I believe he is a proud member of Branch 25 of the Royal Canadian Legion. It is also my understanding that and he was born on a military base and his father was a career Chief Warrant Officer.

This group is past messed up. Many entries make no sense? It appears some of the entries are people who drink too much alcohol first... Maybe smoke some of those Mexican cigarettes.

State facts only.... Try not to piss on anyone. If someone makes and entry and you disagree use some manners and say sorry but I disagree and base your response on facts.

Try to be open minded.

Good Night and May God Bless
