Back in the old days I was an Eisenhower Republican. There are about no right wing Republican party members who would support or endorse him anymore. Moderate or progressive Republicans are being kicked out of the party, I think 'primaried' is what it is being called. What's left is fairly indistin...Jump to post
I guess it is easy to be the party of law and order, and for 'the blue' ... until the supporters and insurrectionists your party has offered solace to, and who have been encouraged by your party leader, find themselves on the wrong side of the law by destroying federal property and attempting to sto...Jump to post
This sounds like a ready-made skit for early 1980s Canadian sketch show 'Great White North'. Or the 1995 John Candy flick, Canadian Bacon!

CPAC bills itself as The largest and most influential gathering of conservatives in the world.

These schools were run by the Catholics but also others (Anglicans as well, if I recall). However, from what I gather the Catholic Church has been the least cooperative in addressing what occurred in terms of their willingness to turn over records or to otherwise engage in a cooperative way.

This, unfortunately, is likely to be a common occurrence in the coming weeks/months/years given the number of schools that existed across Canada over the last century and the increased awareness/acknowledgement that there is likely unmarked graves at some or many of them.

The right really needs to pick the story they are peddling here.

At the end of the day it is all posturing for the domestic, not international audience. Agreed. It is hard not be a bit amused (and a bit pitiful I suppose) in response to this kind of second rate chest puffing from Russia, and how domestic and expat Russians eat it up as food to feed their collect...Jump to post
One can only imagine the sigh, grin, and eye roll such shenanigans must generate from Dr. Fauci.

Peddlers of this fake news and their enablers, both silent and vocal, should sit and talk with some of the 130+ Capitol Police officers injured that day. The cops showed up with honour to do their job, Trump supporters showed up with weapons to brutalize them and to be violent.Jump to post
They may have surrendered their guns and plead guilty ... but the internet never forgets, and the treasure trove of 'Ken and Karen' memes they inspired will live on for the ages LOL https://i.pinimg.com/originals/78/d6/6f/78d66f580f5b1a819b5d1c6aec539b16.png https://cdn.pleated-jeans.com/wp-content/...Jump to post
Quackery. The truth - that MAGA agitators emboldened by the Rioter In Chief stormed the seat of US democracy - is uncomfortable when looking in the mirror, so they need to come up with their alternative version.
I wonder how many instances it will take, of young people dropping to one knee in the class and holding their fist in the air, until this thing gets amended...Jump to post
In what is getting lots of attention in Southern Ontario, and nationally, on Sunday evening a man in London, Ontario ran down five people out for an evening walk.

I read something interesting the other day and it basically described the GOP situation as - they can't win with him, but they can't win without him.

I am hoping that both lose in this saga as they are both arrogant, white-savior limousine liberals with a nasty penchant for authoritarianism. Class envy is an ugly thing.

Q: Why are some Republicans so convinced that Q is real and there are politicians engaged in sex crimes with children, pedophilia, and sex trafficking?
A: Because Gaetz asked them to join!

Building on the previous post, you could also argue that Ellen was 'cancelled' after coming out in the 90's. Her show was cancelled shortly and no one would hire her etc. for years until public attitudes toward LGBT people evolved and she got her talk show.Jump to post

Interesting take from an outlet not aligned or known to be biased towards the right. Some sane arguments indeed.
