These 7 Social Security myths just aren’t true, no matter how often you hear them
Myth No. 1: Illegal immigrants collect Social Security
Not True. Immigrants must be lawfully present and must pay into the system for at least 10 years. In short, they have to follow the same eligibility rules as everyone else.
Myth No. 2: The government raided the trust fund
The Social Security trust fund has never been “put into the general fund of the government.” It is a separate account, always has been, and has generated $1.9 trillion in interest. For reference, the total trust fund balance is $2.9 trillion.
Myth No. 3: Social Security is going bankrupt
By 2020, there will not be enough money coming into the system to pay out to people claiming benefit, so the Social Security Administration will begin pulling money from the trust fund, which will last until 2035. Then the amount coming in will pay 76% of benefits.
Myth No. 4: Members of Congress don’t pay into the Social Security system
Since 1984, members of Congress are required to contribute to Social Security just like anyone else.
Myth No. 5: You’ll never get back what you put in
Each individual gets back the dollars they’paid in within just a few years of filing for benefits.
Myth No. 6: Social Security benefits are an earned right
Social Security payments are not guaranteed, and laws can be changed at any time
Myth No. 7: Everyone should delay filing for Social Security benefits until age 70 
It depends.

Pattinson 'Appalled' No One Taking Responsibility For Bernier Billboards
"Say NO to mass immigration" must not be protected as a  fundamental freedom by Section 2 of the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms? What else can't we say?

Brazil President ‘Will Accept G7 $20m Amazon Fire Aid ONLY If Macron Apologises’
Dear Mr Bolsonaro
I am sorry that you view a desire to help as treating you like a colony.
Our stay as a colonial power in Brazil was French Antarctique from 1555 to 1567, when we were thrown out by the Portugese, and again in Equinoctial France, which lasted from 1612 to 1614, with the same result. We have not been there since. We thought it was a long time ago and didn't realize that it irked you so much.
Again, I do apologise to offering to help.
Emmanuel Macron

Billboards Promoting Maxime Bernier's People's Party To Be Removed: Company
Absolutely! We don't want ANY immigrants. Anybody who can't make it in their own society is not good for Canada. We only want people who have been successful in their society, no mater how corrupt they are.

Wall Street Journal To ‘Chairman’ Trump: ‘This Isn’t The People’s Republic Of America’
What? The Wall Street Journal, an outfit that s owned by Fox News, doesn't think that big government in Washington should tell us how to run our companies? What a left-liberal view!
Twitter Wits Go Bonkers Over ‘Trump Gibberish’ That ‘Media Is Destroying The Free PressI don't understand why the media don''t like it. Conservatives always thought that big government in Washington should tell us what to watch and listen to,

Trump Asserts He Can Force U.S. Companies to Leave China
Just what America wants: big government in Washington telling us how to run our business.

Glasgow University Pledges Millions for ‘Reparative Justice’ for Slavery Ties
Whoa!  What about reparative justice for the Irish, for LGBTQRF, for Asian for Jews, for Muslims.  If you are going to do reparative justice you need to do it for everybody who has been discriminated against, not just pick one group.   Everybody who has ever been a victim is entitled to some of those millions.

Liberals Defer Abdilahi Elmi's Deportation To Somalia, Advocates Say
I can't believe they would want to deport a criminal who cost the taxpayer and his victims countless thousands. Shouldn't people who commit crimes in Canada go back to the Canadian community where they live so they can commit more crimes? What was the Border Services Agency thinking? It is clear that this guy couldn't possibly deal with the horrible duty of learning Somali and he might have difficulty in a society where crime is dealt with.

Women at the Fringe put up with sexual harassment for decades – it’s about time we spoke up
Good for you for speaking up about being a victim since the age of 13!
Now, what measures are in place to prevent women from sexually harassing men?

100ml Liquids And Laptops Ban On Airport Hand Luggage Set To End, PM Announces
Because 18 years ago and man tried, but failed, to light his shoes and because 13 years ago someone had a liquid bomb that didn't work, everyone has to jump through hoops at airports....because something "could happen." There are lots of things that could happen, and current airport security deals with about 3% of them.

National Farmers Union Says Trump Is ‘Burning Bridges’ With His Trade Wars
“President Trump is making things worse, not better” by continuing to escalate tariffs on China, the organization says
 Of course this union only represents family farms, who don’t get much of Trump’s socialism. Agribusinesses like Cargill and Archer Daniels, who get most of Trump’s socialism, are not as upset.

Donald Trump and the ‘Disloyal’ Jews
Anti-Semintism at it's best: the difference between Donald Trump and Ilhan Omar is minuscule: they booth think American Jews owe loyalty to Israel, rather than to the United States.

Trump says administration is 'seriously' considering abolishing birthright citizenship
Absolutely, and Democrats will be the first to have their citizenship rights taken away.

PAC Prods Democrats For Asian American/Pacific Islander Debate Moderator
Because ethnic origin is the ONLY reason to choose a moderator.

  1. Doing great with China and other Trade Deals. The only problem we have is Jay Powell and the Fed. He’s like a golfer who can’t putt, has no touch. Big U.S. growth if he does the right thing, BIG CUT - but don’t count on him! So far he has called it wrong, and only let us down....
  2. Greedy Politicians meddling in the Fed is EXACTLY why we made it independent!

Boris Accuses EU Of Being Too 'Negative' After Merkel And Tusk Trash His Brexit Offer
"No Deal" is undemocratic. 
The British people did not vote for a "no deal" Brexit.
That is why Boris and the Tories are contemplating undemocratic ideas, like peroguing parliament.
If Labor, Liberals and the SNP want a deal, have them vote for the withdrawl agreement.

Border Officials Don’t Plan To Vaccinate Detained Migrants For Flu Despite Deaths
These people are foreigners, why do we even feed them or give them water? So what if they are children, just let them die: Isn't that the American way? It's what we did to the Indians.

Trump Says Russia Should Be Readmitted to G7
But he has a reason: "That's what Putin told me to do!"

Harry and Meghan – no amount of celebrity fawning will cover up your carbon footprint
As someone who is a voice for environmental issues and climate change,Sarah Arnold need to start practicing what she preaches. If she has ever been in an airliner, if she drives or rides in a car, you know she is a hypocrite. She should only use public transport, bike or walk. It is time for journalists and pundits like Sarah Arnold to expose their own hypocrisy. Remove the beam from your own eye, Sarah Arnold, before trying to take the mote from the eyes of Harry, Megan and other celebrities,

We know that China is the next super power, so what is surprising about this?

That's what America wants: big government in Washington telling them which way to vote

German Theme Park Shuts Down Ride That Looks Like Flying Swastikas
Oh No. It "LOOKS LIKE" something! 
Almost as damning as the guy who had to resign because he used "niggardly" (a Scandinavian term meaning "mean") in a memo.

Donald Trump Slams Fox News For His Brutally Bad Polling Numbers
Well of course i is Fox News' fault.  Certainly can;t be Trump's fault.
If they won't lie about his numbers, he should send in the military to make sure they do lie.
  1. Wow, Report Just Out! Google manipulated from 2.6 million to 16 million votes for Hillary Clinton in 2016 Election! This was put out by a Clinton supporter, not a Trump Supporter! Google should be sued. My victory was even bigger than thought!     
  2. Your electoral college victory was ONLY because of Russian interference in our elections.    We grant that you didn't collude: they just wanted you because you are more malleable than your opponent.

Europe is a foe

I finally understood Donnie Trump when he said “Europe is a foe.”   At first I thought; “who are our allies, then?”   Then I realised that for our President, there are no allies: everyone is a foe.  And that is as true of Americans as anybody else.

It’s not that he is racist: it is just that he think that Blacks, Hispanics and Asians are foes, whether from America or some other shore.   It is not that he is a bigot: he thinks that Muslims and Sikhs, Buddhists and Hindus are foes, both at home and abroad.   Far from being the President of all of us, Trump thinks that most Americans are foes, especially if they come from the Democratic or Libertarian party. 

For Trump, anyone who does not let you do whatever it is you want to do, is a foe.   He thinks that the emoluments clause, which prevent him profiting personally by being the President of the United States, is a foe: something to be gotten around. He views contractors who have done work for him as foes, which is why he frequently won’t pay them. He thinks that climate change scientist and conservationists are foes, because they say he shouldn’t be doing what he is doing.

In short, anyone who opposes him in any way, is a foe.

This is not an unusual stance for a billionaire: they are used to getting their own way.
(Jeffrey Epstein, Teddy Kennedy, Tiger Woods, Bernie Madoff)

For Trump, getting his own way permeates his every thought and predicts his tactics.  If you cross him, he will ridicule you, belittle you, go all out on an ad hominem attack.   He is like a Saul Alinsky wet dream: Pick the target, freeze it, personalize it, and polarize it.

It is also why he gets on best with dictators Putin, Xi, Kim and Mohammad bin Salman.  They think the way he does.   Dictators know that everyone is a foe.   (They also can call his bluff, which is why he is so circumspect in their presence.)

Trump sees the world as a zero sum game: you can win or you can lose, there is no middle ground.  Win-win scenarios are for wimps….and foes.

RCMP Urged To Release Report On Alleged Spying Of Anti-Oil Protesters
I heard that the anti-oil protesters spied on the Northern Gateway pipeline project and attended National Energy Board meetings to get an idea of what they were doing..
     This monitoring, surveillance and information sharing with other protest groups created a chilling effect for those pro-oil people who might wish to take part in hearings or other public discussions on pro-petroleum issues.

John Humpys is more interested in his own opinions than he is that of his interviewees. 
The interviewee is really there only to let John tell us what HE thinks.

We Must Fix Fares If We Are To Rebuild Public Trust In Our Trains
Absolutrely! We need to have people who don't ride trains subsidize us. 
If they subsidize us enough, can will rebuild trust in our trains on our own, thanks.

Worshipper Raiq, 65, takes down heavily armed mosque gunman before he can kill anyone
Just another case of radical Christianic terrorism.
  1. Many incredible things are happening right now for our Country. After years of being ripped off by other nations on both Trade Deals and the Military, things are changing fast. Big progress is being made. America is respected again. KEEP AMERICA GREAT!
  2. By Whom? Putin - no, he tells you to take a walk on Syria and Iran and Crimea.
    By Europe: they think you are a joke. By Mexico? They think you are a racist?
    By Democrats? You have said you are not their President.

Jeffrey Epstein is dead by apparent suicide in federal jail, Justice Department investigating
A jail run by Trump''s administration and answerable to him.  I bet there are.
Attorney General William Barr said he was 'appalled to learn that Jeffrey Epstein was found dead' and that his death 'raises serious questions that must be answered.
Barr investigating is like having the fox investigate security in the hen house.
      Trump Hosted Party With Jeffrey Epstein and ‘28 Girls,’ Report Claims
        An event organizer recalled that he warned Trump about Epstein’s conduct in 1992, but that                the future president ignored him.

Joaquin Castro’s Tweet Was Not Doxxing
Yes, of course there will be calls to limit campaign disclosure information: people want it to be secret who they support because that's how corruption thrives. I give you money, you scratch my back and the fewer who know about it, the better.

Donald Trump Attacks The Entertainment Industry, Calls 'Liberal' Hollywood 'Racist'
"They treat conservatives, Republicans, totally different than they treat others.”
Kind of the way Trump treats Democrats? 
Does that mean he is racist? Is political party now a race?
Air Canada Forces 12-Year-Old Squash Player To Take Hijab Off At Gate
What kind of force was used: did they hold a gun to her head? Did they get her in a headlock?
They asked, she complied and no force was used, contrary to this biased piece.
Incidentally, the hijab is a fashion statement, not a religious obligation.
If it were religious, then men would wear them too.

Bernie Sanders Says He’ll Reveal The Truth About Aliens If Elected President
The Democratic 2020 candidate told Joe Rogan that, if elected, he’ll reveal if UFOs exist 
What a beat up! He said no such thing! This headline the kind of thing Trump talks about as fake news.
It is Huffpo's way of saying: do not trust the media, especially us.

Halle Bailey Has Amazing Reaction To People Hating On Her ‘Little Mermaid’ Casting
Outrageous. It does't matter if she is black, white, asian or hispanic, it matters that she is not half fish.

Largest Farms Grab Lion’s Share Of Trump Trade War Aid, Report Finds
The program is “not delivering aid” to smaller family farms in “desperate need”
Of course they do: this is socialism for the rich, not for the 95%. Typical Trump move
