However where your logic fails, where you and your family are protected presumably.

Unless you are a small infant, or immunocompromised, such as on cancer treatment. Don't those people matter?

I could take your logic and apply to homelessness and people on welfare.

For according to you someone who refuses to work will incur expenses on the rest of the population.

You see when you remove personal responsibility by socializing decision through the state you create the problems you try to solve.

The problem is if someone is sick you apply medicine to solve it. You are trying to solve the problem that someone chooses to not take the medicine by scolding free choice.

Are you sure you're from Canada?

We have laws in place to prevent transgression towards the citizen. If I had permission from the state to have you hand over your savings so I may spread it among the homeless and told you I would pay that back with future earnings of these new helped citizens.

The point of socialism to is spread the burden so one person doesn't have to hand over their savings. Most Canadians are quite happy to hand over something to help others. Have you seen how we've welcomed the Syrian refugees?

Would you want some guarantee of that repayment? What if I said you can't come after me if it did not work b/c the state created a law that prevents that.

You see the problem here? Everyone has a choice and when you start taking that choice from others it has a tenancy of biting you back.

Small children and sick people don't have a choice, so it seems only right to protect them from those that think their choice is more important.

Clumsy.

RAC: 91, haven't reported a WU in over two months, no pending tasks, no longer any attached computers in the database--they'll let anybody post in here, won't they?


If it worries you that much I am sure the moderators can come up with a way to help you out.

I like Guy's posts they provide me with insight into dark places I normally don't go.

LMAO!!

I do actually find they give me an insight into what we are seeing going on over the border. Otherwise I would be totally mystified.

ok..I am catching up on this thread and it seems there is a lot of talk about democrats being liars.

Perhaps this will help clear things up.

Assessing the candidates' overall truthfulness



The old joke comes to mind, "How do you tell when a politician is lying? His lips are moving"

However, it does seem that some are bigger liars than others. So if truthfulness is what you are looking for, maybe this graphic will help you decide.

I suspect many in here are unaware of the downfall of the U.S.A. which A) they are unaware they are supporting and B) they are unaware of what means.

So lets all just go ahead and vote with our vaginas and get together for a big group hug, exchange wet, sloppy kisses and tell each other how we love each other as we descend down into a 3rd world banana republic and allow some other group to rise to power and take care of us, like ISIS... or China... or Russia...

[sic]

Are you f***ing kidding me?

Do you somehow think that having a vagina is a bad thing and leads to poor decision making? What century are you in and how dare you be so damn offensive?

I am not going to mod your post even though it is incredibly sexist and patronising, because I think you should be allowed to show yourself up for the sort of backwards person you really are.

Your comment is not ok and it says everything that is wrong with people who vote Trump. Shame on you.

BTW: Marxists are included. Over 1 Billion murdered, enslaved, etc. over the past 100 years.

Are you confusing Marxism with Stalinism?

Progressives? Not a good foundation. Eliminatist Theory regarding Jews in the mid-nineteenth century. The NAZI's used the same excuses as these Progressives.

IE: Jews are Rats and Vermin - 'The Eternal Jew' NAZI Movie later on.

Margret Sanger's belief in birth control. In order to control the 'Inferior' Populations growth.

Hopefully the Progressive Beliefs have evolved into something civilized.

Margarat Sanger did some astounding work that did so much to prevent suffering and misery amongst people of all races. Her views were not those of Nazi's and although unpalatable to many now, they were hardly her defining world view and could hardly be said to come from a place of hatred. I suspect her views have been exaggerated by anti-abortionists to push their own agenda.

Her main support for birth control was to prevent suffering. There are still people out there that don't think people should have more children than they can afford to raise, or that drug addicts, or severely mentally ill people should have children. Misguided as those views are, I wouldn't put her up there with the KKK and the Nazi's and wonder why you think they are equivalent.

Gary...

Your hate-filled attacks against people who are Republicans (Most Republicans are not Racist, of course).

Show why the hate-filled Ideologues, KKK, Progressives, Marxists, Nazis, etc., should never be allowed to obtain power.

KKK hate non-whites.
Nazi's hate Jewish people (and non-whites)

Who is that Progressives and Marxists hate?

Well, we'll just have to see if you're right.

If hillary wins the white house you'll be able to come back in here and flaunt how smart you are. And since you're in Canada, you won't feel the full effect of our currency reset, but you'll continue to blame the republicans for devaluing the USD. You may or may not notice that there are no longer any U.S. made products being sold in Canada.

I don't really understand your point here.

Firstly, the high US dollar/low Canadian dollar is effecting our imports already. So wouldn't it get better with a lower US dollar, not worse?

Also, as far I can see, everything here is made in China anyway.

If Trump wins, everybody will forget about your prediction and you'll then start attacking the white house as if you've never been wrong in the past.

That's why progressive liberal socialist democrats keep us one generation (edit) away from losing our liberty.

Hitler was a national socialist liberal.

Huh?

We ALL contribute to the climate of these forums when we post things that are unkind..

What some of us get in a PM could be called incitement to riot too. Heh heh :-) Next time I get addressed as Sambo there, I won't sink to the level it came from.

The quickest "fix" to making the tone of the Cafe more pleasant is for posters to make a concerted effort to be as kind as possible as often as possible.

Never a truer word spoken :-) Respect! +1

I am sorry to hear you had such a nasty pm. Unfortunately we cannot control what is sent via pm and strongly suggest that you use the blocking feature should anyone send you anything like that again.

Any comment like that made on the public boards would, certainly in my opinion, result in an immediate ban.

With so many different posters from so many different backgrounds on these boards you're are going to come across people who you wouldn't normally associate with. This is one of the strengths of these forums as well as one of its weaknesses. Most of the time we all get along. Those of us who volunteer as moderators do our best to balance the need for free speech with making all posters feel welcome. Its not an easy job, and there is no way we are going to make everyone happy.

"WOMEN FOLK "give your man some quiet self time lest he say "F this I've had enough all she does is nag me , I'm outa here " hehehehehehehehe

Considering some of the comments on this thread, I'd say those ladies would be better off without them.

Just a reminder that plenty of women do post here, try to remember that before insulting us.

I was being sarcastic with my comment, i'll try to be more clear in future.

Unfortunately sarcasm doesn't always work on text based forums.

I believe.........
That if not for myself, some things would never have happened here.
I have contributed what I am able to have done, and much more, it seems.

You question is unfathomable to me at this time.
Just got the call from the wonderful folks at the kind cat friendly folks at the pharmacy. Kitty meds are on the way.

If there is anything I could help in any way with any others who have a fine companion on their last walk of life, please let me know.\



Anything else you should like to know?

I am glad your kitty meds have arrived. We are all rooting for your cat.

"...a magnet for the worlds waifs and strays, and the intellectually challenged. "

"*You want to bang your extreme (usually left wing) political drum, go to Politics where you can do so anonymously."

"*If you're one can short of a six pack and your day centre has closed, go to Seti, they'll welcome you. "

Even the science threads have deteriorated, the one place where idiots and politics tended not to appear, "

I do think that comments like these about other posters are a big part of the problem.

Do you think some people might be hurt or insulted when you say things like this? Or do you think you don't contribute to the ethos of the board somehow?

I've had a few people suggest that show to me, but I never really cared for their lawyer in the show. I figured the character was just an example of how slimy people can find slimy lawyers to help them. The previews for the show itself didn't seem to interesting to me.

Its definitely the tale of a downfall much the same way Breaking Bad is. I think you should give it a go.

I will attempt to be less nuanced and less sarcastic in the future.

If that will help you.

I think it would help everyone. This is a text based forum after all.
