Sorry guys. Looks like one of my sockpuppets got loose.
Damn it JollyRoger, you need to keep control of those things .Sorry guys. Looks like one of my sockpuppets got loose.

This I can answer: the party that wants to expropriate white land in South Africa is called the "Economic Freedom Fighters," a nutcase party that gets around 10% of the vote. Think if Louis Farrakhan had 50 members of Congress.Again, do you have sources for these claims?
Ditto, in the other direction. There's a crazy woman in my province who wants public teachers to set up literal one-room schools in their homes, so the actual real school buildings won't need to be used as schools, or they could be torn down or sold or whatever her nutty ideas are. This woman wants to be premier. This is not the most insane idea she keeps promoting.Ok, here's a new thread
Leftists agitate for changes in society that I do not support.
Yeah, gender-balanced cabinets and women's reproductive rights and not allowing faith groups to discriminate against LGBT youth is just sooo awful and disgusting! How DARE he treat women and LGBT people like equal human beings!Still, he has horrible political views, the only thing about him that I don't loathe is his choice of Halloween costumes decades ago.
Wow. So I guess you've never left your home country even to visit any other? I've visited the U.S. and found it an interesting experience. Their highways are worse than ours, but the people were mostly friendly. There was this usual bizarre idea that everyone in Canada knows everyone else in Canada, and they wanted to look at my Canadian currency and actually feel it, like it was some weird thing (this was decades before we got polymer notes, which do feel and smell very different from paper banknotes). My last trip there was in 1987, and I've no plans to return, though it would have been nice to see the Grand Canyon. Americans are welcome here, as long as they leave their guns at home.At the cost of destroying any kind of heritage of the country, replacing it with essentially a "mini United Nations".
No. State X is for X people, State Y is for Y people, State Z is for Z people. A place for everyone and everyone in their place.
A dog born in a stable is not a horse.
People tend to offer such advice in good faith, and GenMarshall is someone whose advice is worth taking.Thank you so much for your invaluable feedback on my posting here! I really, definitely appreciate it so very much!
1. "Women" is plural. "Woman" is singular. I don't get the current tendency to use the phrase "a women."I'm against adherents of that lifestyle being role models to the next generation, yes. Asking students to call a biological women "Mr" or a biological male "Ms" is, in effect, promoting transsexualism in schools.
So you approve of everything Sir John A. did, like creating the residential school system that even the Pope has declared to be cultural genocide, and having Louis Riel - an elected Member of Parliament and one of the Fathers of Confederation - executed?Either way, Trudeau will never be even 1% of 1% the leader John Macdonald was.
There's accountable and pretending it never happened, or that it happened a different way. I don't feel guilty for what happened, as I was not personally responsible, nor was anyone in my family. That said, I won't pretend that horrible things didn't happen and that they should never happen again.Why should Whites be accountable for the "sins" of our forefathers?
Of course you're anti-LGB. Your posts drip with condescension toward them.Like I said, I am not anti-LGB. I vociferously disagree with T. I'm a TERAF - a trans-exclusionary radical anti-feminist.
Your posts do not support this.I have nothing whatsoever against gay/lesbian/bisexual people.
Hm. You do realize that not all women who have kids also have husbands or common-law spouses or even live-in boyfriends, right? So if the woman is staying home caring for the pre-school-age children, how are they to be supported? You strike me as the sort of person who expects women to stay home and care for the kids but would rant and complain if such women needed social assistance to make this work.Yes, mostly, I am. Society functioned far better back then. Once the children are all school age, the mother can go back to work. I would never marry someone from a different heritage, but I don't think it should be illegal or anything. If other people wish to marry out, that's their business, not mine.
Okay... what "larger" goal do you strive toward? My larger goal is to leave some part of this world, however large or small, a better place than I found it. I want to have done something positive that was of benefit to others, whether human or non-human.Who cares about their lonely souls? We strive towards a larger goal, our little lives don't count at all.
Well, it's a good thing that this isn't what schools teach, then. You should really stop listening to far-right propaganda, not to mention that it's really off-putting to have this misinformation bandied around OT. I see enough of it on my MLA's Facebook page (she represents the United Corruption Party, and her idea of an acceptable field trip for Catholic high school students was to bus them to Edmonton to participate in an anti-abortion rally - gotta teach 'em young in how to harass, intimidate, and abuse women and girls who are seeking medical treatment that is absolutely 100% legal and absolutely 100% NOBODY ELSE'S BUSINESS.I don't want schoolchildren taught anything about heterosexuality than the bare minimum of reproduction. I don't want schools teaching "how to please your boyfriend in bed 101" to girls.
So does this mean your time here will be short? After all, the internet didn't exist 100 years ago, so your being here is definitely non-traditional. Shall we gather names and RL addresses and pass them around to continue this conversation? Anyone know the postage rates to South Africa?I seek a return to tradition.
Quite a few people were offended when the photos surfaced. Mind you, the timing was suspicious... trotting them out in time for the federal election.I don't think it's some sort of horrible, cancel-worthy offense. It's a minor nothing that is blown out of proportion. Keep in mind, the movie "White Chicks".
So? I'm sure the kids didn't care who read to them.I mean, some schools in the US bring "drag queens" into the classroom to read to school children.
Trudeau supports women having equal opportunities to have whatever education or career we want, without being stomped down by "the old boys' club". Canada was founded by multiple countries and ethnicities, by people speaking multiple languages and holding multiple faiths. And that's just the first four provinces back in 1867. There are a lot of different ethnicities represented among the people who live in my apartment building. How does it negatively impact my life if they want to keep some of their cultural traditions? The only time it would is if I happened to be allergic to something they're cooking or preparing to eat (raw basil gives me migraines).Trudeau supports feminism and multiculturalism, ergo, I don't support Trudeau (even though I'm the furthest thing from Canadian).
They're someone to other insects. Probably. And dogs and cats are people. They're just much shorter, hairier, and don't speak human languages. Otherwise, each has a unique personality.An insect is not someone. Someone = people (and in my opinion, dogs, I love dogs).
It's funny that someone with a name like Trudeau was teaching in a school in BRITISH Columbia.
You really should get off the internet, then. After all, computers and near-instantaneous communication around the world were once science fiction. You don't like spaceships? How do you think the communication satellites get up into orbit - jump up on their own?I don't care for science fiction. I prefer musicals, comedy, mysteries, dramedy, etc...spaceships and stuff are for children.
By this point I doubt anyone else here believes this but you.Lifestyle was a reference to a gender-divergent lifestyle. I have nothing against people who are gay, lesbian, or bisexual.
Do you have any idea at all how many diseases and medical conditions that women suffer because male doctors and researchers didn't consider them worth the bother of researching and treating, because they figured women were just smaller men who could have babies? This is still going on.Modern medicine doesn't need to bring modern society...
I skimmed the Wikipedia article. You're still saying that a fascist theocracy is something that's good. Under the Gilead regime, people like me would just be executed, since we would be deemed useless. Thanks so much for making your view of disabled people known.I know what Gilead means, it's still better than living under Malema. Do you know who Malema is?
Every single time you prattle on about "lifestyle". And honestly, nobody gives a damn if you approve or not. It's not your place to approve or disapprove. Other people's sexuality is NONE OF YOUR BUSINESS.Find one post where I said anything homophobic. I was very clear - the lifestyle I disapprove of is transsexualism, not homosexuality/bisexuality. It's fine to be LGB, but T is biology denial.
It's not like they had any viable options, did they?But those detractors didn't stop Victoria or either Elizabeth from being Queen.
It's unfortunate that such violence and hate exists in your country. But you are projecting that brand of left-leaning politics on to countries that are very different and assuming they're all the same.Well, lots of left-wing parties (i.e. EFF) despise people like me, and sing songs about killing people like me. So don't be surprised that I have come to hate the world, this world that always hated me. Take an eye for an eye, turn your heart into stone. This is all I have lived for, this is all I have known...
So let us vote, and then tell us to get back in the kitchen and make you a sandwich, then. Y'know, you'd have gotten along great with my grandfather, and that is NOT a compliment. He and I had some very bitter arguments over his notions that girls don't have a right to opinions until marriage and at that point their opinions become whatever their husbands' opinions are. I couldn't believe that it was the 1980s when this BS was being handed to me. It came as quite a shock to my grandfather when he realized he could not force my grandmother, dad, and me to vote the same way he did, in the last election he was alive to vote in. His choice was an anti-Jewish ex-teacher who lost his teaching license for preaching Holocaust denial to his high school social studies students. There is no way I would ever support anyone like that.Radical feminism = anything beyond the early stuff (i.e. a woman's right to vote is the last feminist idea I agreed with).
There's actually a Star Trek character who would agree with you - Mistress Beata, in the Star Trek: The Next Generation episode "Angel One." She was speaking of men's rights, though. On that world, women rule. Men primp and look pretty, and are the servants. Mistress Beata strongly disapproves of men having equal rights, and makes a speech about reducing evolution (social evolution) to a slow crawl.I may not be able to turn back the clock, but at least I can slow the winds of change if I try.
Ah, yes, very assimilated!
It is possible to be both articulate and insulting at the same time.There is no need for a flame war, you'll notice that I'm not flinging insults at people, rather I am expressing my views in an articulate but sometimes feisty manner.
So you're okay with referring to some of the members of CFC as "delusional"? I'm sure that any who see this thread will just love you for that. Not.They are trying to get me to play along with their delusions, which I will not do.
You realize that national boundaries can't be seen from space, right? What matters is the survival of the species.But when too many people are making choices that are bad for the long-term survival and continuity of their nation...
Y'know what? For someone who values looking inward rather than outward, you seem to love sticking your nose in an awful lot of other people's business. Teaching kids that LGBT people exist and are entitled to equality is in no way promoting anything other than equality. Stop listening to propaganda and actually ask real teachers what goes on in schools.The larger goal is ensuring national continuity. This cannot be done with sub-replacement fertility.
Trying to live as the opposite sex is a lifestyle choice. LGB is fine, I have nothing against it. Schools are now promoting that transsexualism is a valid lifestyle.
Your source for this claim?And it's true that alternative gender lifestyles are being promoted in schools.
True. Who wants to vote for a party where most of the members are intolerant of those who don't follow their religion, or at least any mainstream religion? But I suspect that isn't what was meant. I've observed that most Conservative politicians claim to be Christian, yet the policies and views they espouse are the direct opposite of what their Jesus would have preached. They are some of the biggest hypocrites on the planet.There are far more atheists and agnostics who vote for liberal parties than for conservative parties.
No, it isn't. If Jesus Christ were alive today, he wouldn't be preaching in favor of making followers of false prophets feel welcome, nor in favor of gender ideology that contradicts biblical truth.
Ditto, in the other direction. There's a crazy woman in my province who wants public teachers to set up literal one-room schools in their homes, so the actual real school buildings won't need to be used as schools, or they could be torn down or sold or whatever her nutty ideas are. This woman wants to be premier. This is not the most insane idea she keeps promoting.
This guys stuff is all just reactive stances based upon who you are. Theres no method and maybe a skeleton of an underpinning ideology. My team and your team.
Its really boring.
No one knows the future. I predict tho that most of the gobbledygook people are spazzing about these days will be forgotten when the **** hits the fan regarding climate change.I hate to say it, but society is going to move towards progressive ideals
The low class pharisee seems like it wouldn't be a terrible place to start looking for Jesus. Even if they're a bit hidebound. If you manage to work the leather into usefulness, they get tough and protective. So much work, though. And the purchase to do it is hard to come by.This. I'm certainly not wasting any spoons on it, even if he's really misinformed about WWJD; it's ironic that most enthusiastic Christians nowadays really come across as Pharisee-like, and I suspect that if Jesus returned tomorrow he'd be loathe to label himself as a Christian in the first place.
Not sure, I remember seeing 'goddess love' advertised on backpage for about $200/hrwhat does a Godly love cost?
Hah!We have really backslid in recognizing God's influence. Abraham got mad respect, Andrea Yates was declared mentally ill.
what the problem to use the right pronome the people choice for himself? Don't matter what is his gender of birth, just matter what gender he/she associate with it self now.No, but you are expected to call people by biologically inaccurate pronouns these days.
Hello, on a different note. If you are familiar with wildlife safaris, how different are the ones in S. Africa from those in Tanzania?
