It's been unraveled and widely reported upon. There was only one shooter. The Louvre has noting to do with what happened in Quebec, no need to confuse things with irrelevant memes.

But that's all some people seem to be able to contribute. Useless thoughtless memes that they copied and pasted.

Donald Trump... Narcissist in Chief!

I have never done anything but argue Christianity has been as bad or worse than Islam. My argument is that Christianity has by and large lost its power to secularism. Even the Pope is secularizing his views at a rapid rate in an attempt to stay relevant. Christian numbers are are massive decline, while Islam is in rapid incline. Data is your friend.

Never said anything about surveillance, border patrols, building walls etc. Every country has an immigration policy. That policy affects… immigration. That policy has had a huge effect in Europe. Even Angela Merkel is admitting the folly of loose policy. Do you deny the link between immigration policy and the people that end up within your borders? Do you not agree that the preservation of a country's culture is dependent upon the pace of immigration being consistent with the pace at which those immigrants can assimilate into that culture?

A perfect example of the problem being the doctrine and not a race. This supports my argument. Islam is a not a race; it's terrible ideas that liberals have made it a phobia to criticize.

What solution have I tried to present? So far this conversation is all about trying to come to an agreement that the doctrine of Islam is the problem, and that the threat is real and rising, and that it is in contrast to Christianity where the threat has fallen to being of almost no threat and continues to lose power at a fast rate. I provide data, and you guys just say 'no'. Hard to have a conversation like that.

Here's more data…
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_terrorist_incidents_in_January_2017

More than 140 acts of terror in the first 30 days in 2017. Likely another 5-10 will be added tonight. A quick scan reveals Quebec shooting, IRA and perhaps 3 or 4 others unrelated to Islam. Most likely none related to Christianity.

More data
https://www.nytimes.com/2015/05/12/upshot/big-drop-in-share-of-americans-calling-themselves-christian.html?_r=0

5 million less Christian in US from 2007 to 2014. Google reveals this trend is global, and suggest in 20-30 churches will be empty.

On the contrary, Muslims are increasing faster than world population

Now, if I lived in a completely secular country and Christians were on crusades, increasing in numbers fast and killing people who don't submit to Jesus, I would be calling for our government to make sure our immigration policy was consistent with keeping the country secular. This is not about race, and it's only about Islam as a reflection of the current state of affairs. Islam is the greatest threat to secularism and western values, which I am not ashamed to want to defend. I believe in the right to believe what you want, but when a group of people (dissociated to a specific race) basically declares war on your culture, openly admits they are going to try and breed you out of existence, follows through with those threats at an alarming rate, I feel it's foolish to ignore it. I don't know the full solution, but it's clear even to those that made the policy, that open borders is failing Europe and they are now trying to clean up the mess.

And just to be clear, Trump is an idiot and handled this about as poorly as could have been done.

Do you know any Muslims?

Looks to me that the just keep the seat tube profile exactly the same for all sizes and just extend it for the larger sizes. Since the esta is generally measured from the top-centre of the head tube this makes sense.

To me this is just lazy design because I don't know a single tall person that likes a slack sta. Totally bags out the back end on steep climbs having this much mass so far over the rear of the bike.

Ding ding ding!!!

Someone please listen to this man.
Slack sta sucks for us big folk!

u2 hype!

+ The best unintended consequence of Trump�s election to date is that it has prompted U2 to indefinitely delay the release of their latest album of musical banalities.

Take your ugliness somewhere else.

I'm not a huge fan of U2. But why come in here and shit on those that are.

Go back under your bridge.

While the original is not a lot better, that's been photoshopped to make his chin look even bigger.

Also, I'm no Trump supporter, but attacking him based on his appearance isn't unlike him making fun of a disabled person based on their appearance.

I don't think the OP was atacking him based on his (terrible) appearance. What other president had ever publicly complained about the press using unflattering pictures of them?

The Great Salt Famine of 2017

I heard on the radio today that the city handed out 9000 tickets to homeowners for not having their sidewalks cleared. $250

Anyone know how I go about sending the city a bill for the 6" deep ice ruts in my back alley?

😥🙄

New Ford Ranger and Bronco

How much money did Ford really leave on the table has the share price of Ford dropped since they killed the Ranger, isn't Ford the the only N.A. car mfger that DIDn't need the bailout?

If you google Ford Ranger sales figures you will see that year after year sales dropped by 75% from the peak

also it was going to cost Ford close to a billion to retool for a new ranger, if Ford spent those big bucks and nobody wants to buy a small truck they aren't making a net profit so the ranger died cuz nobody was buying small PU's , in fact how many small PU's of the size made in the 90's are there for sale in NA now?

Toyota was smart cuz they resized the mini PU to the present day Tacoma it fits a family of 5, 5 adults in comfort, if Ford is smart they will copy most of that Tacoma they have torn apart in a design studio somewhere in Dearborn

Add to that Ford already had the f-150 which has been the best selling vehical in NA for [HTML_REMOVED] 40 yrs so just keep selling them to see what happens was a smart move, it appears they will build a 150 with a small diesel, I personally can't see the point of a 1/2 ton with a diesel in NA but I guess we will see if Ford can make money doing it

Personaly I can't see the point of a 2door SUV, all those 2 door SUVs are dead, how many are there for sale out there now?

The sales drop could be more related to the lack of change (ancient pushrod engine dated styling) than lack of demand in the size segment.

These have been around for a long time in Australia, not certain why they never cam to the Americas? Diesels were impressive…

https://www.ford.com.au/commercial/ranger/

My guess why they never came is ford is concerned they would eat into their F150 sales and they couldn't claim to sell the most popular truck in North America. Aldo more expensive full size probably has a higher margin than "compact" truck.

Plan for Legal Marijuana system in Canada

No, it is another sign that they are not really comfortable with it, although I think jbazzet has a point. We need baby steps so those that still oppose it don't get too worked up about the changes.

Limit the number of plants? Say hello to 8 foot plants. People will have them like hedges. LOL

They are height limited to 4' for "fire reasons".
