Re: The Trump's incriminating collusion with Russia megathread.

So, even accepting your MarketWatch article at face value, the reasonable conclusion to draw is that Trump's told 7,500 lies. As for the Washington Post being fake news because some YouTube video from a comedian says so... yeah, okay. The bottom line is that you bang on about liars, yet hypocritical...

Re: NRA Under Fire!

While I support gun rights, I've never been a fan of the NRA, who I see as apologists for militarisation of police in the U.S. JPFO is more my speed.

Re: Canada in Crisis?

I do not know about the crisis as a whole, but the real estate market crisis is obvious. Bloomberg said: The top end of the market driven largely by foreign buyers, especially Chinese, has been the hardest hit. Prices in posh West Vancouver have plunged 14 percent in a year. Chinese investors are a...

Re: Chinese soft power winning out over US chest thumping.

The PRC might have some reprehensible human rights policies and been shameless in some of its dealings with some poorer countries - like enticing them into debt traps for the sake of collecting strategically placed assets in part payment of debt. But This is one of those situations where if you say...

Not invading in the first place would have been much more humane, including to U.S. service members.

Re: Post Mueller Report

What I'm aware of is that Mueller was unable to gather sufficient evidence for it, and that however dissatisfied Trump's detractors may be by that, they had their shot and they should move on. In other words Trump was not lying. You could have just said that. I realise that nuance is not your stron...
