I'm no fan of Al Gore.

The man is a genius. Anyone who can come up with a new stock market (carbon credits) put themselves at the top and actually get people to buy into it isn't a buffoon. Greedy, huxster, sell out, puppet bitch-boy of global interest, sure, but he pulled off a shenanigan on a global level that has given him tons of profit and still has people arguing and fighting about it.

He only lost the election against Bush because he got out-cheated. They both had plenty of people in place stuffing ballot boxes and rigging the vote, Bush just had better connections.

You still don't get it. People don't label Trump and some of his supporters as racists and bigots.

Going by your reasoning, then democrats and people who support them are pedophiles right? After all, there are so many of them that have deep links to people like Epstein. And there's just so many articles on leftwing media sources, sites and so on in the defense of pedophiles, child porn, and so on. See how easy that works? Haven't learned a single fucking thing.

They ARE racists and bigots, it's just a statement of fact, ...

Repeatedly saying that, doesn't make it true. Then again, your definition of "racist and bigots" seems to be anybody who refuses to agree with your political ideology. Which is why the left is right there, screaming no platform. Or attacking, assaulting, or violently assaulting people for having a different point of view. It's why they're organized into groups, it's why those big "left wing" groups keep doing it too. Let's look at that "j20" or whatever it's called and what do we see? Yep, the left has an extremism problem. You know what we call that kiddies? That's right, that would be a fascist ideology.

 

This mistake was not countering the narrative that white males are oppressed and equality and progressive ideas have gone too far. Fear and resentment are powerful tools.

The mistake was promoting that ideology and view in the first place. The second mistake is people jumping on board to support it. The third was then implementing progressive ideas that openly supported it and claiming it was diverse. You've suddenly discovered that the rest of society really doesn't support any of the bullshit you've been peddling -- rather they simply tolerated it. Then you decided to double down, and people started going "wait, didn't they argue against this." And you gave rise to the beast that'll kill it for you, unless you do it yourself.

You enjoying your self-created extremism yet? You know what the real kicker is? You're now going to experience what it's like to be demonized, just like you've done to conservatives for decades. And it's going to be the moderates lining up to take shots at you.

You meaning advocating for a No Fly Zone in an area where the Russian Air force is operating daily?

How do you enforce a No Fly Zone?

A. Ask nicely that the planes leave.
B. Hold a press Conference and strongly denounce that fact that you were ignored.
C. Shoot down planes that violate the No Fly Zone.

Who was it again who wanted a No Fly Zone?
Hint: She kept a private email server.

That's exactly what it is. It's not happening in just a few places, if you want to see how bad this gets, look at Vancouver in Canada, or Victoria in Australia. Housing prices are way-way-way above what the average person can afford. In the case in Vancouver something like 60% of them are empty as well. It's so bad, that they instituted a "foreign buyers tax" to try and stop it from happening. It's worked, kind of but not very well. If anything it's simply pushed the problem to other markets. Even here in Southwestern Ontario we see it. People get priced out of Toronto, then they go move to Woodstock, Ingersoll, Aylmer and so on. The same problem starts to happen again, except that those folks in Woodstock, Ingersoll, Aylmer and so on are earning around 1/2 to 1/3 what those people in Toronto earn.

Yes, specifically the part where it was investigated by multiple people and you rejected their findings because they didn't fit your existing narrative about senior Democrats being paedophiles.

You mean the part where it wasn't investigated by multiple people. Even to the point where a NBC investigative reporter asks the same question "why aren't police investigating this" and it's suddenly scrubbed off their website.

This is your problem every time. You reject things that contradict what you want to believe. If something doesn't support your desired truth, you just google a bit more or find a reddit board that will give you the correct evidence.

This coming from the person who holds on to the belief that gamergate is a harassment group, refuses to believe that the people he supported were the actual harassers. That nobody can tie a single GG supporter to an actual case of harassment type of stuff that you refuse to believe. That even the most ardent feminist "safety" groups who've looked are unable to find any proof. Oh the irony of that entire quote.

Because his supports have an IQ of a retarded ferret?

You'd think that after ~15-17 years of identity politics, labeling people as "racists, nazis, retards, bigots, sexists, etc, etc, etc" that the left would learn something. Seems to be a NOPE on that one. And it's only cost them in the US ~1200 seats of power. It's only cost them brexit. It's likely going to cost them Germany and France too. And with the shit that Trudeau and leftists are now pulling in Canada? I wouldn't be surprised if we see the death of the Liberal Party within the next 5 years. And I'll bet that instead of being introspective, people on the left are gonna double down. Just like the democrats in the US are, just like political parties, and media are in the US and Europe.

Just a FYI: The left are overrun with extremists. Whether it be people who claim they're anti-racists being racists, claiming to be anti-bigots, while engaging in bigotry. Engaging in general shitty behavior that enables a literal cultural desert because "cultural appropriation." Engaging in sexist or anti-sexual liberation ideologies. It doesn't matter. You are, where the right was ~25 years ago, when you were out there screaming about the "crazy religious right-wing nuts." Get rid of the crazies, dump the identity politics. In short: Get your shit in order.

Isn't Snapchat valued at ~25 billion?

Yep. And people don't think this dotcom bubble is going to burst anytime soon either. Then you've got stuff like Uber valued at ~68B, and blowing through 2-7B/quarter in losses. Think on that one, at 68B, they have a higher market valuation then the big-3(GM, Ford, Chrysler) automakers. And they manufacture physical products, own their own credit financing divisions.

My guess? We'll see that pop around the time that Canada's housing bubble pops. And anyone who thinks Canada isn't due for a massive housing price correction doesn't realize just how bad it is here. Here's a good kicker too, in Vancouver one of the really overly priced markets. The provincial government sets property taxes based on the "possible future valuation" of your property. There's people in industrial areas, who are going to see their property taxes go from $160k to over $1m this year and are looking to get the hell out.

Yes, blame the blacks -- oh wait -- jews -- oh wait -- Russians for everything. It's literally impossible that Hillary might have lost because she ran an incompetent campaign while living in special bubble created by the press and her elite celebrity pals who told her that she didn't have to earn the election.

It's sort of ironic that you call Trump a xenophobe while the entire Democrat and press establishment go on a witchhunt for foreigners that makes Mccarthyism look like Mr. Rogers.

Just like those same areas were under 2km of ice 7k years ago. The reality is in Alberta, most of their water isn't from glaciers, it's from the winter snow pack, and lakes built from said spring melts. The real problem with the forests in Western Canada(especially BC), isn't the cold. It's that large sections that have been cut are suffering from "yearly monoculture" planting. Which leads to less resistance to the damned bugs in the first place. Round that out with decades of thinking that no-burn policies aren't any good? Well we've got a hell of a problem now don't we. And when the thing goes up, not only does it have decades of crap on the forest floor. It's got trees that will go up like hay.
