QUOTE (Dugald @ 2nd Dec 2016, 12:22am) *
Billy, in my Post #293 I posted the following:

Might I suggest Billy, that you ask yourself the following questions:

(1) Why was the Soviet Union placing nuclear weapons in Cuba?
(2) Were these warships that you mention any more threatening to the USA than the variety of American nuclear weapons, already in place surrounding the USSR, were to the Soviet Union?

This nuclear holocaust which you mention, was averted just in time. Whom would you praise with an “Attaboy” for averting this holocaust… Kennedy or Kruschov?

Could I please have an answer or at least a comment with regard to what I wrote here?

Cheers, Dugald.

Opinionated from the "socialist mythology" for the 60s? Have you ever undertaken any study of non "hearsay" history. It never ceases to amaze me the amount of western pundits of nostalgic socialism, when "Che" and "Fidel" were going to sweep the world free from American domination (not racism ???) and usher in an age where the domination (dictatorship of the proletariat) would sweep the world of war and want.

At the time of the missile crisis, according to K.G.B. serving generals, the Politburo was completely out of it's depth and out of control, imagining they could win a nuclear war. What transpired was another "socialist" dictator ship revelling in it's own ridiculous rhetoric. The "brave music of a distant drum" has long appealed to the cosy armchair revolutionaries of the smug and self satisfied in their heroic imaginings. Not one of whom would ever in his wildest bourgeoisie fantasies ever take up the bloody cudgel of revolution against the "tyranny" of Western democracy thy found themselves subject to.

Last word on the subject; apologists for Castro share a bed of nails with apologists for Pol Pot, Kim Jong Ill and Stalin.
Dugald
You make a good observation here ExPOW. I thought about what you were saying and then I remembered:

In Post 291 Angel made mention of Justin Trudeau’s comments about Fidel Castro’s death which was pounced upon by one, Billy Boil. This in turn led to my asking Billy some questions (which by the way, Billy has never answered). I think there was and still is a continuation here of Angel’s original posting.

Perhaps it does as you say, deserve a “dedicated topic to itself”. Actually one already exists:
‘The Cuban Crisis” posted under the War thread. If you look in this thread which is located at the bottom of the main page of the Glasgow Guide Discussion Board you will find it.

I should mention that I’d prefer to leave Angel’s, and the subsequent replies, as they are, rather than use “ The Cuban Crisis”… which I don’t think quite fits Angel’s intent.

Cheers, Dugald.

Hi Dugald , as you are probably aware at this time here in Canada , we are having much opposition to the federal government's decision to allow the oil pipelines to go ahead on the west coast , and I am wondering what your opinion on this subject might be .

For myself , when listening to what the feds are saying regarding all of their precautions that will be taken in not polluting the environment and at the same time the employment that will be created , " which is badly needed" and also why should Canada have all this oil in the ground and not being developed for our own use plus export, and what is the best for our country .
Regards , Angel .

Excellently written article, Angel. Thanks for posting.

As someone who lives on British Columbia I am in favour of the oil pipelines which originate in Alberta. The Kinder Morgan one is having a lot of disfavour with marches etc. (especially from the rent-a- crowd mob) in the municipalities that is goes through in the coast area, namely particularly in Burnaby where the terminal is, in Vancouver and Port Moody. All of these Mayors have come out against it. The pipeline which was to go through from Alberta to Kitimat has been nixed by the Liberal Government as it was to go through a rain forest and that was thought to be haxardous to the environment. I think that the employment that would be created would be good for the economy in B.C. and more especially in Alberta in which it is badly needed at this time.
Dugald
Hello Angel:

I’m of two minds with regard to the oil pipe lines problem. I’m not happy about how they will affect the environment, but at the same time, it will make an important contribution to the economy of the country and especially Alberta. Ultimately, I think I would have to go along with the need to improve the economy and include some means of extra consideration being given the environment. I don’t know if this is possible, but my goodness when one sees the damage these oil tar sands cause despite the promises that were made with regard to their development and the environment … will the pipe lines go the same way? On top of all this there is the fact that Trudeau has backed off his pre-election promise… although, I do admit broken election promises are not cardinal sins to my way of thinking.

Yes, I can see it all too clearly reading my answer to your question: my answer is about as good an example of fence-sitting as you’re likely to come across! I lean slightly to favouring the construction of the pipes.

The ' green environmental warriors" as with their counterparts in Australia have declared war on all that would bring jobs to the unemployed, would advance social progress and benefit those from whom they have an
inspired ( by neo paganism) antagonism. They would protest with any and all whimsical notions that could bring legal sanction to all and every endeavour not controlled by them.

An essential road in Australia was held up for months because one of their acolytes fount the SHELL! of a snail believed to be extinct. Not making this up.

Closer to home the are holding up the final stage of a the No.1 highway around Australia, in spite of expert advice to the contrary, as they have decided to save koalas they have declared to be in the path of this road. Their solution; to divert this major highway through a quiet of road community and destroy it for the residents. Oh, there are many children who could also be killed ( I live in the vicinity and re3member one year when 10 souls died due to bad road conditions on the old highway ) but the potential Koalas who sleep 23 hours a day on the treetops would be unharmed.

They will stop at nothing; lies are a means to the greater good.

Here is the crowning achievement of such groups. They always have jobs they can leave at a moments notice to protest, and drive there in their CARS!!!!
angel
Hi Dugald , just saying that I do have the same mindset as yourself when it comes to the oil fields , I am always leery of what the government say and what it does but if it will be good for this country and canadians along with the economy that will be fine and

if some bright spark can come up with better solutions to the environmental worries along with the oil being harvested then that will be finer yes.gif

I did post earlier but for some reason , it did not materialize on the thread , so maybe it just evaporated into the environment . smile.gif

Subject: Changes to Canada

Below is an excellent FB post that ALL people should read. This fellow is an Historian who offers an accurate assessment of the root of the problem the world faces today and more so well into the future.

That's what Hitler said about the Jews. Another right wing fascist rant from a historian with no knowledge of the subject matter. This I must reckon that Canada, although mercifully free from right wing Christian nut jobs, proliferating in their southern neighbour, seem to have found a voice for hatred and incitement.

a voice for hatred and incitement.


That, unfortunately, has always been there although usually said in whispers.
Canada officially takes a firm stand against hate crimes, racism and cultural bigotry and will prosecute offenders at the drop of a hat (if caught).

But.

Since the rednecks, bullies and knuckle-dragging morons have attained electoral supremacy to the south of us, some up here feel sympathetically (or is it pathetically) inclined or encouraged to let their true feelings out and lash out at immigrant and other identifiable minorities.

The sad thing is that there has always been that undercurrent of distasteful behavior here and despite Canada's official position on Multiculturalism, that policy has been shown in the past to
have been less than effective.

While supporting a Multicultural Society is absolutely the right thing to do, I fear it will delay any sense of National Identity development necessary to solidify us as a complete and single nation.

Canada was first recognised however as a nation unto itself on Vimy Ridge in 1917.
Let's not forget that, despite what governments do to separate and divide us into multi-factioned groups and keep us apart.

Oh Canada! sad.gif

Full Answer

The passage of the 1982 Canada Act was in response to the request made by the federal government of Canada to end the requirement of requesting permission from the British Parliament for certain types of amendments to be made to the Canadian constitution. The Canada Act officially became the 1982 Constitution Act when it was signed into law by Queen Elizabeth II at Canada's capital city of Ottawa on April 17, 1982. In adherence to Canada's official policy of bilingualism, the text of both the Canada Act and the Constitution Act are on record as a statutory instrument in English and French.

Athough, Vimy Ridge is probably the most remembered WW1 Canadian battle, there was a few more battles were the Canadian military showed it's worth .

I happen to think that Canada has a very strong national identity although it has a multi cultural society. It is that diversity that makes Canada the country that it is.

There are many countries that are riddled with racism and bigotry Canada is not alone with that problem but I don't think it is such a big deal at this time . hope it never is . sad.gif

Ahmed Hussen, came to Canada as a refugee from Somalia on his own when he was 16yrs of age , and through his 23yrs in this country he became an immigration lawyer and this week he is now the minister of immigration and refugees for Canada , this is just another success story that we hear about and no doubt there are many more in this land, all different nationalities with different occupations colour and religion and the same applies with our M.Ps of many ethnic origins , Success to all of them and others in the future . biggrin.gif

Look out for the "Great Wall of Canada" or don't you have as Mexico does, thieves, rapists, drug pushers ( who buys all their drugs any way????) and job stealers.

There must be a host of things that Trump will find to hate about Canada, as he has found much to hate about the civilized world.

Try not to display any of your intelligence or social justice skills as this will cause embarrassment to the biggest gun toting, drug abusing, supersized in the world.

Yesterday's eMail to Justin Trudeau and local federal MP....
Entitled: Electoral Change & Other Matters

"Sirs,

With regard to the broken promise to reform the Electoral Process and dissolve the 'First Past the Post Rule',
I fear what you have done is to shock the entire nation by executing a barefaced reversal in intended policy.

Whatever the reason you may or may not have considered as valid for doing so, is academic, but what you
have actually assured yourselves of is a guaranteed seat on the Opposition Benches in the next General Election.

The P.M. has shown that breaking promises is not only to be expected but actually follows a family-inherited trait.

Not good enough Justin!

Not good enough either is the intention to meet with the incumbent Orange Lout throwing his considerable
bulk currently around in The White House.

Must you denigrate Canada to the level of collusive confederate to such an arrogant bully?

Surely Canada's Charter of Rights and Freedoms would preclude this.

Much better to stand against a tyrant than to unabashedly sidle up to one.

I'm sure that past English Prime Minister Neville Chamberlain would rather (given the chance) have stood up to
Hitler and rejected "Peace In Our Time" and his policy of Appeasement in view of how history unfolded after Munich.

Bear in mind the people, including you, who cannot remember the past, are condemned to repeat it.

Do not meet with trump but form a better relationship with Mexico.
Do not sully Canada's Character and stand on human rights in the eyes of the world by appeasing trump.

Cut America free and learn to trade with the world. America is a lost cause for the next four years.

As at Vimy Ridge in 1917 where Canada first became a nation in the eyes of the world,
you have the chance to again assert and prove that Canada has the guts to take on and defeat a bully.

Do you think for one moment that H.M. QEII will appreciate or even approve of your intended meeting?"

Do not accept her appointment.

Since your intended meeting with trump has been confirmed today (Feb 9th) for Monday, Feb 13th, 2017
you have now shown to Canadians and the World that you have neither the integrity, conscience nor morality enough
to continue to serve us as Prime Minister.

Mexico has at least the balls to stand up to trump. Clearly you have not.

Still much to deal with , like environmental and the harvesting of oil + other security issues , just have to wait and see , but I do think that Trudeau did a good job . thumbup.gif

The battle for Vimy Ridge began on April 9th, 1917.
It lasted for four days and ended on April 12th, 1917.

Canada fought as a combined Corps and managed to take the position sustaining
10,602 casualties: 3,598 killed and 7,004 wounded.

Backed up by planning and the cooperation of British and Canadian Artillery and a new device on the battlefield known as "The Walking Barrage", the Canadian Corps managed to succeed where other units had failed.
Brigadier-General A.E. Ross declared after the war, “in those few minutes I witnessed the birth of a nation.”

That all happened exactly 100 years ago.

I had read about him in the past and I had a pretty good opinion of him as a Prime Minister but now after reading the above article, I have since changed that opinion.

He was Sir John A MacDonald .

It's looking like nature is controlling those
wild forest fire's in BC , seems like the
fire services are getting nowhere in their
fight to control these infernos .
there are more than 200 fires and they
are just erupting everywhere and thousands
of people are being evacuated and they will
probably lose everything they have worked for
most of their lives .

The Tinder dry conditions and the winds
which are so unpredictable are the root
of the problem and the more these fires

Finally,

an upward turn in the Interest Rates after seven long years of abysmal returns.

Hopefully, now Canadians will be shocked into spending less and reducing personal debtloads.

Hope the rising trend continues until it hits at least 5%.

More wildfires here in Manitoba and thousand of
Indigenous peoples have been evacuated
from their homes , also quite a bit of flooding
here in Ontario , and of course the wrath of Harvey
in Texas and now a couple of other states , it's
been quite a summer , those people won't
forget anytime soon .

This being the last holiday weekend of the summer
I suppose the roads will be very busy here with folks
taking breaks and visiting with friends and families
and also getting ready for the kids going back to school .

Also for myself I have a nice weekend planned , visiting
