Shields and Brooks on government shutdown blame
I am sick and tired of the Republicans and Democrats putting their party over their country.   Chips, DACA, border security, military funding have all been under debate since the middle of 2017 and NO ONE will do anything about them.
All we hear is “it’s their fault.” We know whose fault it is, congress: it is yours!
Funding our government by continuing resolution is the sign of a dysfunctional congress and a president who could not lead his way out of a paper bag.    The entire congress and the president should be turned out on their ears.

Clergy Abuse Advocates Fear Pope Francis Is Making It Harder For Victims To Speak Up
Of course it does. Unless everyone accused of any involvement is automatically removed from office and sent to prison, whether or not they did anything, then it makes it harder for victims to speak up. Demanding proof of a cover up is just mean: people should be believed when they say ANYONE was involved in a cover up, no matter what

The Fake Feminism Of The #MeToo Backlash
No, the me-too movement is right: women are delicate little flowers whose sexuality is dictated by solely by men. They have no responsibility for anything, except to say that something happened to them when they didn't want it.  Particularly if it happened 20 or 30 years ago.

Quebec Teen Issues Challenge To School's Smartphone Policy
You don't understand modern parenting: kids can do no wrong because they are the only people that matter on the planet.
Anybody who thinks bad manners is rude just doesn't understand that it is ONLY rude if YOU do it.
If I do it, it is perfectly OK.

U.S. Tax Changes Could Be Worse For Canada Than NAFTA Pullout
Gosh! You mean you deliberately had a low tax zone and are upset because others countries will now do what you do? Imagine our chagrin.

On Aziz Ansari And Sex That Feels Violating Even When It’s Not Criminal
Feels violating but not criminal says to me "why did you go there." 
     Most of this comes from people having sex with people you don't know. If you had gotten to know the guy with 10 or 20 dates, including lunch, dinner, breakfast, sports, friends, and family, then I'll believe you that you were surprised by his behavior. If you didn't, I've got no sympathy. Take some responsibility for your sexual behavior.

The Girl Who Lied About Hijab Attack Deserves An Apology
It is true. Eleven-year-olds are NOT responsible, whether they hacked someone else's hijjab or said someone hacked theirs. We cannot hold children responsible for this kind of hate crime.

Floyd Mayweather gives stunningly ignorant response to #MeToo question
Jeez what a tool. He doesn't follow the media and what they think is important. How dare he?

I didn't think there was such a thing as consensual sex now?Chelsea Manning files for U.S. Senate run
We already elected one traitor in Donald Trump, what's wrong with another traitor?

Attacker Cut Toronto Girl’s Hijab On Her Way To SchoolCutting off someone's headscarf is assault. Imagine if he had cut a piece of the headscarf of the queen. Of course a headscarf is not a religious object, whether is is called a hijab or not, but anybody is entitled to wear a headscarf if they want to. Headscarfs have been worn in Canada with impunity for at least 300 years. Indeed, longer than that, as Inuit and First Nation people wore them from the get go.

Is this the future of consensual sex?
I didn't think there was such a thing as consensual sex now.
        Be careful with this: you have to say exactly who can do what to whom, or they will say you violated the agreement and you will be done for non-consensual sex.   You don't want a lawyer saying that everything was fine, but the kiss on the left elbow was without permission, as we all know what the #metoo group thinks of kisses without permission.

Labour leader also refuses to rule out supporting second EU referendum.Good for him! We want another chance to get it right, just as Ireland had.

BBC Stars Should Have Their Pay Capped At £150,000, Suggests Culture Secretary 
Assuming that 150k is what a parliamentarian gets, including all office and consitutency costs, mailers, etc than I don't hav a problem with it. Otherwise he will need to up the ante. I think the current tariff is about 250K or more.

I assume that the BBC stars will get the some benefits that parliament get for housing allowance, per diem, bodyguards, etc.

  1. DACA is probably dead because the Democrats don’t really want it, they just want to talk and take desperately needed money away from our Military
  2. What nonsense! Your house and senate can pass a Daca act tomorrow. Nothing to do with the Democrats.

United Nations Security Council lectures US ambassador Nikki Haley on purpose of UN
“Let there be no doubt whatsoever,” she said, “the United States stands unapologetically with those in Iran who seek freedom for themselves.
Translation, based on experience with the USA, from the holocaust to Prague to Iraq: 
"We won't do anything about this, so you're on your own."

Outcry grows over use of Spanish prison to house migrants
(as-yet unopened prison, acting as a temporary holding centre for migrants)
This is outrageous. Why can't they be housed in 4-star hotels with room service.

Bannon Claims 'Zero' Chance Trump Didn't Know About 'Treasonous' Russian Meeting
Of course there was collusion: as anyone with the sense god gave a goose already knew.

Labour Party is too white, too middle class and too southern
It's is true. Jeremy Corbyn is too white, too middle class and too southern.
Time to get him out and get a northern, working class black to represent Islington.

Carlini Chef Laura Goodman Quits After Boasting Of ‘Spiking A Vegan’
How dare she insist that someone should eat naturally. 
People are entiled to eat whatever unnatural conglomeration they want.

    1. Many mostly Democrat States refused to hand over data from the 2016 Election to the Commission On Voter Fraud. They fought hard that the Commission not see their records or methods because they know that many people are voting illegally. System is rigged, must go to Voter I.D.
    2. Actually, it is NOT mostly Democratic states, it is Republican as well. We know you want to victimise anyone who didn't vote for you - and we ain't having it
      End of conversation
    1. New conversation
      As Americans, you need identification, sometimes in a very strong and accurate form, for almost everything you do.....except when it comes to the most important thing, VOTING for the people that run your country. Push hard for Voter Identification!
    2. Only if it is free. We don't believe in poll tax, no matter how disguised.

"Tax Law Ushers In Higher Executive Salaries at Netflix"
Great for execs, none for the troops. The rich do it again
  1. The Democrats have been told, and fully understand, that there can be no DACA without the desperately needed WALL at the Southern Border and an END to the horrible Chain Migration & ridiculous Lottery System of Immigration etc. We must protect our Country at all cost
  2. Nonsense! The wall is a silly folly that will do next to nothing to stop illegal immigration. Chain migration, however, we can agree on. It will also stop the Daca people from bring in their relatives. Lose the stupid wall and you have agreement.

Is God is beyond gender? Swedish church challenges traditional perception
 God is, by definition, an alien: not human. Of course God is an "it" 
What I can't find in this story is what the words "in the name of the father, son and Holy Spirit" will be replaced with.  God the father, mother, son and daughter?
      Perhaps the Christian church should pull a Lewis Hamilton and apologise to God, who can wear a princess dress any time It wants
