Canada is presently in that 'early Sweden' phase where they can keep taking in the 3rd World without the consequences spilling onto the doorsteps of regular Canadians, so the idealists control things and the people forced to live with the reality of their idealism and speak out about it are shouted down as 'racists'. It will take another generation of these policies before the consequences set in, idealism is abandoned by large groups of the population and the expected backlash begins.

This could accelerate if ultra left wing policy changes are implemented or there's some critical mass of "refugees" that starts turning entire cities like is happening in Europe and to a much lesser (cut still real) extent, the US.

Also, I, for one, find Canada a bit racist in that they seem to have a strong bias for Asian immigrants.
Why such a hard line on Africans? And particularly all those Ethiopians fleeing the brutal civil war in Syria.

Canadian Snipers are like, retarded good.
They're #'s 1, 3 and 4 on the list of longest confirmed kills.

I heard that after Canadian snipers shoot terrorists, the Canadian government dispatches a team of social workers to recover the wounded and relocate them into Canada, then provide them with free stuff for the rest of their lives... because racism.

I also want to know some more about this ride. I obviously imagine it will be awesome, but I need some deets.
I went in without knowing a bunch aside from that it was in high demand and involved motion simulation. While in line, my linemates assured me that it was the best ride at Disney World (they had ridden it that morning and were going again), and I came away agreeing with them.

If you're familiar with Soarin at Epcot or California Adventure, it's similar to that. If you're not familiar with those, it's vaguely like the old Back to the Future/Simpsons rides at Universal. However, it's more individualized than those and just straight up more thrilling. The premise is that you're riding a Banshee - the dragon things from the Avatar movie. You're led into a room that holds 8 people (two rooms next to eachother, so 16 total)...there may be two of those (for 32 slots)...not sure. You get seated on something that resembles a motorcycle and put on 3d glasses. Then a giant screen comes up in front of you that basically fills your field of vision. Your seat then moves in time with the video screen. You fly through a bunch of different areas of Pandora. They throw in a little more fun things like wind in your face, sprinkles of water, and some smells. I say it's thrilling, but it's also extremely relaxing. With both it and Soarin, I feel like I could ride them for an hour and just feel so peaceful.

The radical Islamists want a war between Islam and the rest of the World. Don't give it to them.

why? all of human history tells us there is only one way to stop this. no amount hashtags and crying is going to stop this problem, and it's only going to get worse as the muslim population rises in europe. we can hope they correct themselves, but considering they are a thousand years behind everyone else, i'm not hopeful we get there anytime soon.

That being said the one thing that we all need to worry about is some of these wingnuts getting their hands on a dirty bomb or suitcase nuke or something along those lines because they will use it.

I'm all for the Intelligence people recording every conversation on the planet and having as much information and intelligence as possible.

haha. i thought you wanted to preserve civil liberties?

First day went fine. A bit overwhelming at times. My boss is very laid back so that's cool. My cube is also almost in the corner so only one person really has reason to walk by me. I also sort of have a window view, so that's neat.

That awkward moment when Trump both bows and curtsies, showing that Republicans are total hypocrites yet again.

https://www.aol.com/...-king/22100809/

I'm a #NeverTrumper but this is pretty stupid. There was no bow anywhere in the video, and during the supposed "curtsy" Trump was just getting a medal put around his neck by a guy about a 1/2 foot shorter than him, and then readjusting it by moving up and down. He's not even looking at him when he does this supposed bow/curtsy. This kind of stuff was so stupid when the republicans did it to Obama, and it's equally stupid now.
