lol. Republicans blame their gun problems on mental illness, then give the green light for the mentally ill to purchase guns. How logical.

They should now open up the borders to ISIL members as it would follow their logic.

And Dems blame guns for social problems….because why take personal responsibility for your own actions when you can blame an object? Logical.

Liberals abandon electoral reform

We don't need electoral reform, we need to abolish the party system and reduce power of the PMO. If MPs ran as an independent (no mention of party on the ballot) then people would be forced to vote for the representative in their constituency and that person would represent them in parliment. Right now we send someone to Ottawa who is then imasculated by the party and ordered to vote in lock step with the PMO (in case they are in power).

Then the independent MPs could nominate a PM and that person would represent Canada for foreign affairs only. I the person fucks up they could be replaced if a majority agree.

The destructive forces of the party system are on full display in the US right now.

Canadian politics used to be more open where MPs voted based on what their constituents wanted, not always by party line. It made politics interesting up here. We lost all that in the last 20 years or so, unfortunately.

And don't worry about those destructive forces down south, those Liberals will stop rioting, whining, creating fake news, and eventually have to get jobs. :lol:

Liberals are allowed to change their mind whenever they want. It's the definition of liberal (loosely).

I'm not surprised

The more educated the person is, the more liberal their views become. That's why the conservatives do not want everyone to be educated and make post secondary education expensive.

:lol: I can see I didn't miss much in NBR.

Education does play a large role. I've always been around education so I find it surprising when people aren't educated. I am always amazed when I am in an area where finishing grade 12 is a big deal. I grew up thinking that was the very basic amount of education one would get and that it was virtually a given. I definitely do not take education for granted and I sometimes feel bad knowing others may not have had the opportunities I had for education and try not to judge them for it.

Education is more than learning a skill that is viable for work. It is critical thinking, which unfortunately is lacking in society. It does not mean that people need to come to agreement over topics, but each side or opinion needs to be developed critically and not but using #alternativefacts.

Well said and I agree. However, there needs not to be a dog pile on who is 'dumb' on one side or the other, they both have their buckets full. Hashtag no facts.

Fuck Science and Math

That story bugged me, as well. I respect people that live by their beliefs, but when it comes time to listen to another opinion regarding life or death over your child, well, I find it hard to empathize with the parents.

Does your last sentence also apply to the science of there only being two sexes?

I didn't say that.

Right. I guess I just read into it a little too much, I'm sorry. So you just want to know if someone has a terminal disease and an accurate rifle?

Fentanyl crisis

We were talking about drug issues into which you have projected Gun control laws … what has that got to do with Fentanyl deaths?

uhh…making things illegal doesn't solve social problems?

cult of personality. threepee gets a prize from the top shelf!

He lost the popular vote, thus has no legitimate mandate.
He refuses to divest. For that alone he should be impeached.
The Repugnantones control both houses and will try to turn America into a Christian fundamentalist boot camp.
His cabinet and appointees will leave no stone unturned in their scorched earth effort to eradicate any and all vestiges of the New Deal/Great Society and the work of Nixon's EPA.
These clowns are a danger to humanity.
Fuck 'em.
Any thinking person can see that the only moral choice is to make Trumps presidency impotent politically, and a miserable one for him personally. Just because he's such a cunt.
There's over 350 million 'mericans. There must be somebody down there with a terminal disease and an accurate rifle.

Woah - way over the top. How can you say that someone should be killed because they don;t agree with you?

She (the person who started it) did, however, lose her job for it …

Well, I never like hearing about people losing their jobs. However, if you are in a position where public opinion may hold your future in its hands, one would think they may use more caution about the words they chose to share. Actions have consequences.

the opposing view is not dumb

Fentanyl crisis

So who here thinks making drugs illegal is helping stop fentynal deaths?

Time to end the war on drugs and put a stop to this exact kind of bullshit. So much waste in lives and money by leaving the inevitable and unstoppable manufacture, trade and use of drugs to illicit means. Experiment has failed, time to move on to something else.

Probably the same people here that think more gun control laws will stop the criminals from shooting one another.

the map doesn't show vote percentages by county, just who won so it is accurate only from a very limited perspective. if the vote split was 50.5% vs 49.5% then the thought "that so many people in diverse regions all put their belief into one ideology" doesn't really hold true. stats and data are great, but depending on how they are used they don't tell the full story.

No, it does show that people from diverse regions thought alike; from farmers to industrialists and everything in between. Fact. The percentage is moot. Same can be said for the other side, too, perhaps; albeit greater concentrations in large cities.

Did NSMB make fun of Barron Trump?

You've gone after my children. Others my wife. One member my dead father. A few posts back, someone was mentioning another forum I frequent. You know - typical harass until they lay dead, make sure there are numbers to back up your poor etiquette, blame someone else for your actions page out of the play book.

Syncro - yeah, that map showed the election by county. It is telling though that so many people in diverse regions all put their belief into one ideology. It may not be the popular choice, true, and Soros there will just keep funding protests and lawsuits to keep everything nice and fresh for all to see.
