I doubt a news host on an French version of CNN (LCN) has much notoriety in Anglophone Mount-Royal. Through Libman only has notoriety for people over 40 of age.

Well, it's good to point out the few times the Republicans do right things. Believe me, it would best for everybody if that treaty transforming countries in slaves of corporations failed.

Not shocking at all. We are talking of a country where the far-right polls 25% and which totally failed its denazification process.

Considering your desilluonnal nonsense about Greens and the Vancouver-Mount Pleasant by-election, I don't see why we should consider you as something than an anti-NDP hacks willig to distort facts.

Debate is on Thursday, 6:30 to 8 PM. Wierd hours, but there is a Flame match later that night.

Their, I would assume?

Are you really surprised? That newspaper was supporting fascists and nazis during the 30's, too.
8  Other Elections - Analysis and Discussion / International Elections / Re: Alberta General Election - May 5th, 2015 on: April 21, 2015, 03:45:08 pm
Wildrose would. Ethics reform, anti-corruption exposes galore, then quick dissolution and flash polarize to vaporize what's left of the Tories.

Will they find a cure to cancer, too? Listening to you, Wildrose would realize your wildest dreams.

Well, it's not a bad thing. It's allowing the city to start from a clean slate.

I think 1abvote has really jumped the shark with their latest poll. NDP double digit lead, including leads in Calgary and the rest of Alberta.

Most likely, but there is faint odds it's right. Fundraising numbers went out, and NDP raised 400k last trimester, against 125k for Wildrose. That may help them to catch anti-PC vote (and spinnnng the fact Wildrose is not running in all ridings).

Also, Notley has started quoting Peter Lougheed for suppoting her ideas, in the style of Lougheed wanted to raise corporate taxes, I want do to that, Prentice is saying than it's extremist, so he is saying than Lougheed was extremist.

I don't know who is their strategist, but federal NDP should hire him after election.

Guess Alabama, Mississippi and Texas just have to be on the wrong side of history on everything.

Huh

There are on the list of the 7 seven states NOT recognizing Armenian Genocide (with West Virginia, Indiana, Iowa and Wyoming).

I know that, I want him to expand on the "everything" part.

Slavery, gay marriage, sodomy laws (Lawrence v. Texas).

    Are there any seats in England where UKIP is not fielding a candidate?  If so those seats might be nice test cases for UKIP's impact on the Tory vote %.

No, only in Scotland.

I must say I'm rather surprised by the reaction here on Forum. We have a religious person trying to impose its beliefs on us, using a rather flimsy derivative of "think of the children!". Usually, such demand would be mocked and rejected as being "another social conservative forcing his values on us". Apparently, people are afraid to say the trust when it's a non-Christian.

I must have missed all of that religious posturing and qu'ran quoting since it appears to be fictional.

Read between lines, Ebowed.

And yes, Draghi is a massive FF and every European should thank him.

Every European with a big stock portfolio should thank him for his redistribution schemes.

And why that wealthy and privilegied minority should be favoured over the working and middle classes?

In 2012, the PCs 'borrowed' tens of thousands of votes from Liberals and New Democrats to stop Wildrose.  I don't think progressive voters are in a lending mood this time.

Liberals might be best hope for borrowing.

Borrowing what? Liberals are polling quite low so their support is mostly die-hards and people living in Liberal ridings.
19  Other Elections - Analysis and Discussion / International Elections / Re: Alberta General Election, 2015 on: April 15, 2015, 08:16:46 pm

Well, it's a very different strategy than last time.
20  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: House passes big reform package for Medicare 392-37 (Doc fix, quality care, etc) on: April 15, 2015, 07:37:03 pm
Seems like a reasonable bill. I am surprised something reasonable could pass. I won't be surprised if it is blocked in the senate because not like we can actually allow anything that makes sense to become law.
McConnell can probably convince 6 democrats to support it. Reid has no power to stop a vote, he can only try to influence the result.

That was a nailbiter of a vote, now wasn't it?

Especially considering who voted no.

Ted Cruz (R-TX)
Marco Rubio (R-FL)
Pete Sessions (R-AL)
Mike Lee (R-UT)
Ben Sasse (R-NE)
Richard Shelby (R-AL)
David Perdue (R-GA)
Tim Scott (R-SC)

I wonder why Shelby opposed it. Is anyone primarying him in 2016?

Current law is saying than all expenses raises must be compensated by a cut elsewhere. But there is a provision in this law to exempt it from that requirement. They tried to remove that provision, but it was voted down, so they decided to vote against, because "it's increasing the deficit".

re. Snowden: He's a traitor that literally committed treason and should be prosecuted under the fullest extent of the law. His dissemination of the information he stole can be described as nothing less than careless, and he has undermined the US's soft-power and counter-surveillance capabilities on the world stage.

I'll agree with Snowdon prosecution the day Keith Alexander (former NSA head) is prosecuted for mass spying of citizens without court mandate.
22  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: President Obama to support removing Cuba from terrorist sponsors list on: April 15, 2015, 02:28:57 am
Pretty obvious move that should have been done earlier. Can't wait to see Rubio's reaction.

Should be enough to rename Rabioso (Rabid in Spanish).

The death has been announced this evening of Ronnie Carroll (Britain's entry in Eurovision for 1963 and 1964) which means that the election in the Hampstead and Kilburn constituency will be postponed http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-northern-ireland-32291350

No, it won't. He was an independent, and, so, the election is continuing as planned.
