  1. Sad news about John. My first stop after hearing the news was the local watering hole for a drink of some of his favourite scotch... Rest In Peace John.
  2. I'm not really into the whole circle-jerking thing. However, people in my circle ARE informed about what's been going on in Quebec, Mosul, Kenya among many other places - some are Knee deep in the shit. Practically every Church that I've attended across this great country of ours has multiple missionary programs per year. Some people give all they have to help, some have even died. So please excuse me if I take exception with those that say that "americans are woefully ignorant" and that such comments are "fair." That's the thing with stereotypes - you're likely to offend someone. I thought liberals were aware of that. Let me get this straight. You've been to churches who are sending missionaries to Quebec City?? Are you sure about that??
  3. Carville said that about the Clinton Foundation, not the CGI. I don't think the Clinton Foundation is closing down. http://www.cnn.com/2016/08/23/politics/james-carville-defends-clinton-foundation/
  4. thank you Mr. Blutarsky http://youtu.be/V8lT1o0sDwI SFW
  5. Well, he did hereby give notice... so that pretty much makes it legal and such
  6. That sentence is a masterpiece. If only I could hear it spoken by Peter O'Toole. Maybe try Colin Firth. I think he could pull it off... Or maybe give John some fine scotch and he might be able to make a go of it....
  7. Can we put our orders in now? I'm picking Nevada...actually, maybe just Las Vegas. And if you can figure out how to move the weather along with it, that would be much appreciated. Regards, Canada
  8. PS. I will always remember you getting pied in Eden North at the Canadian Nationals in 97(?) when you swooped the landing area and knocked over the Canadian flag...
  9. Hawks will still be respectable. As long as they have Captain Serious, they'll be a playoff contender. Kings...not so sure. Don't think they make it deep in the playoffs...might not even make the playoffs. Maybe Domi with AZ makes a run... No. They won't light it up...because it's Phil Kessel (they just split up their line) Jets, maybe. But I think the west will be St. Louis, Nashville, or Minnesota Tampa won't get back to the finals... I think all this Stamkos trade talk will be a distraction. Rangers or Montreal in the East. Detroit won't be dominating...but they will be glad they got rid of Babcock...(see below) No. Babcock won't make a difference. What a disaster. Get a coach that may be good, but NO ONE can stand (see the tweets from Mike Commodore). Add to that a horrible defence and a GM in Lamoriello that most people are still trying to figure out why they made that deal - that's a recipe for more of the same in T.O. Dallas could make a decent run. Great offence. Benn and Sequin will light it up down there. Jagr has 10 pts already with 5 goals. The guy is insane. Love watching him play. I can see why him and Mario played so well together. No one saw the play and the ice like Mario...but Jagr's a close second. I like your correction to Montreal/anyone in the West...I think they have the best chance of winning the east. West? I'm going with Nashville in the West (a bit of a long shot...) Although it pains me to say this...I'm thinking Montreal wins the Cup this year. And you think Montreal fans are obnoxious now... :)
  10. Yeah, I can't let that one pass...that's not the way it happened...let me attempt to set the record straight... 1919 - Weimar government dictates that "all firearms are to be surrendered immediately". Primarily due to the fact that they have agreed to crushing financial term under the Treaty of Versailles that they know will cause another revolution. 1928 - Easing of restrictions from 1919 law - all firearms to be registered 1938 - Jews prohibited from owning weapons - most already were prevented from owning firearms from provisions of the 1928 law that said that people who were deemed "untrustworthy" could not own firearms 1939 - Nazi government further easing of restrictions - no restrictions long guns, permit validity extended from 1 to 3 years, minimum age lowered to 18 Under Nazi government, there was an easing of gun laws for the general population (79 million), not a restriction. The Jewish population that time was approximately 200,000. I've read many arguments that seem to indicate that if the Jewish population weren't 'disarmed' by these laws, there would not have been a Holocaust - which is of course complete rubbish.
  11. What are the odds of that actually happening in the first place? I mean you can build a boat in the desert so you don't drown in a flood..... Exactly. What are the odds. Why are we even debating gun control? Odds that any gun purchased legally with or without a background check, new tax, mandatory insurance, magazine capacity limits, and so forth will never be used in a mass shooting of innocent people. I watched a movie last night where only the police and military had guns. I think many of you would find that a model society. It was called "Schindler's List" Not quite. In 1938, the Nazi government eased the restrictions on firearms. Your comment regarding only the police and military had guns is incorrect. As long as you weren't Jewish (it became a crime in 1938 for Jews to have most weapons, let alone guns), it was easier to all other Germans to own and carry firearms.
  12. that prick Frank Underwood has his fingerprints all over this...I don't trust that guy...
  13. As I recall, the Sandy Hook had exactly such a system in place. Adam Lanza simply shot out the glass door and walked in. But no doubt some will respond that the school is at fault, for not having 12 inch thick steel doors at all entrances, and actually having vulnerable windows an attacker could shoot out and enter. Much safer to build our schools out of solid concrete without windows. Also we should have metal detectors at every entrance, armed guards, windowless steel doors for every classroom that lock automatically when an alarm is sounded, and a 15-foot high solid wall topped with hurricane wire around the entire property. That should be the face of freedom in America. A gun on every hip, and a barricade at every door. Don Yeah I guess your right. Maybe it was stupid for Canada to start locking the doors while class was in session. Actually, Canada didn't start locking its doors. Some schools in Ontario did. It's not a required practice. The government made funds available to schools who wanted to increase security after the Sandy Hook shootings. Completely voluntary. And aside from 2 school shootings in Ontario 40 years ago, I'm not aware of any that have occurred recently or even any that were prevented by this voluntary policy. In my opinion, the simple fact that firearms are much harder to get (the process for acquiring firearms is significantly more complex) is the largest contribution as to why there haven't been more shootings.
