"Last I heard, radical Islamic terrorist group ISIS was calling on its members to attack Canada through whatever means available. According to the Liberals this is Harper's fault because he dares to stand up to these murderous cowards and call them by name. Sounds to me like the cowardly Islamic Jihadists aren't the only threat to Canada's security. I am sure that if elected, the timid & naive Liberals national security policy would consist of group hugs & banning the phrase "Radical Islam" because it is hurtful to the poor, misunderstood Islamic terrorists..."

I really hate MP Judy Sgro

" By contrast, Toronto Liberal MP Judy Sgro said last week that if Canada is a target of jihadis, it is the prime minister’s rhetoric that has made it so.

She insisted the PM’s willingness to identify radical Islam as a threat was simply fear mongering. “It’s all about building up and getting people frightened and fearful. ISIL, ISIL, ISIL, ISIL is coming here. If they’re coming here it’s because he put us in that position.”

Liberal Leader Justin Trudeau, who has long dithered over what to do about ISIL (or ISIS), refused to distance himself from Sgro’s accusations. "

Liberals because NDP never has a chance of winning.

Haven't the NDP taken a lot of seats from the Liberals?
User avatar #77634 to #77628 - lulzformalaysiaair (02/08/2015) [-]
Not sure, but if so that is highly worrisome since NDP are bat-shit crazy but at the same time it gives the Cons a bigger chance to win. Too bad voters are too stupid to vote together, if the NDP and Libs combined they would win every year.

What do you guys think about giving and teaching kids to use guns at such a young age? Is it morally correct to give them one or leave it lying around at home? Shouldn't it be at least hidden?

Also all those people got too short of prison sentences.
User avatar #77585 to #77579 - akkere ONLINE (02/07/2015) [-]
Giving a child a firearm as a present is rather unorthodox, and it's utterly incompetent to just leave a firearm about in your home with no intent of storing it properly in a gun safe.
However, teaching a child at the very least firearm safety and such shouldn't necessarily be out of the question, it's just a matter of what age should it be capped at. In the Boy Scouts of America for instance, there's a Shotgun Shooting merit badge that you could only go about acquiring at the age of fourteen (at least, that's how it was in my troop, though I never went about getting it until fifteen). The merit badge also required a great deal of recitation of some key things regarding the cleaning of a shotgun, the proper handling, capability of identifying the parts, and so on.
I think it'd ultimately be best if not necessary if the teaching was done with the supervision of an experienced and certified firearm instructor in the (relatively) controlled environment of a range, as well.
Most of the cases in this post could've been easily prevented through common sense storage of a gun safe, and I'm rather astonished that (at least for the modern cases) this was such a problem to a common degree.

i suffer from severe apophenia, to the point where i isolate myself in real life and sleep armed. i actually find solace in conspiracy theories. im not an idiot, and i can see through most of the bullshit pretty quickly, but certain ones catch in my mind and force me to dig. the way i see it, if i can tell a conspiracy theory is fucking retarded, then im having a good day. if im losing sleep over one, then i need to talk to someone.

sometimes i dont know if i actually believe them, but im glad they exist. i refuse medication (fucks with my ability to function at any level) but having benchmarks helps.

The problem with conspiracy theories is they not only abuse the concept of good skepticism, they also route public attention away from genuinely reasonable contradictory details, and point them to irrational conjecture.
This ends up producing a "Boy who Cried Wolf" scenario where people are more reluctant to believe that was ever anything of a lie regarding the news of an issue, and makes it that much more difficult to present any new findings that would further legitimate skeptcisim.
It's counter-intuitive, and most people who do conjecture-filled conspiracy theories do it less to "enlighten the public" and more to feed their egos and need for attention, or even profit from book deals.
User avatar #77577 to #77563 - mixednuts (02/07/2015) [-]
Of course it's always good to be skeptical of what you're told, research sources, and question your beliefs.

Though we all can be prone to confirmation bias or stubborn convictions, a lot of conspiracy theorists are not skeptics at all. They'll reject absolutely anything some sources say, due to them being governmental or mainstream. But take almost any other source at face value if they support their preconceived beliefs.
User avatar #77574 to #77563 - schnizel (02/07/2015) [-]
It has some truth in it but I don't like the mindset of the conspiracy fags. They seem to imagine that the "elite" get up every day and repeat that they are evil and always having some evil plan in mind. Most of the "secret clubs" are mostly filled with orgies and shitty rituals anyway.

It's good to be skeptical of powerful institutions but a lot of the conspiracy theorists are just complete nutcases and hard to even remotely take serious.
User avatar #77573 to #77566 - radiserne (02/07/2015) [-]
Agreed, I think its good to question things. My problem with conspiracy theories is that the whole idea of a "proof" has been twisted. Unlike in scientific communities, there are no skepticism to what "proof" people come up with. It's like a pseudo-science, and its creating confusion on what can be considered legitimate evidence, and what cannot.
Earlier all this conspiracy mumbo jumbo was kept to the nutheads themselves, but with all this anti-vaxx shit going on its starting to affect others too. And since anti-vaxxers are much better at using social media than for example health organisations, they also reach and affect a great deal of the population.
imo its a very dangerous path. If they think vaccines are harmful, who's to say they won't attack penicillin or other drugs are not as well? Suddenly a whole health industry based on pseudo-science, with healers and whatnot as doctors.

If religion is to be taught in school, then it should be it's own class and serve educational purposes only. You know, classes with names like "world religion" or "religious history." No attempt to convert anyone whatsoever.

That's the point. They shouldn't have to pay for you to convert their children, either. Indoctrination through schooling shouldn't be forced on anyone, yet through government schooling, it is forced on all except the wealthy.

What are Hillary Clinton's actual views?

I see her framed as Leftist a lot, but considering how Centrist Bill was, I kind of doubt it. I've also never seen the common quotes passed around, the one about women and war, and the free market being the most destructive force in history, cited.
User avatar #77565 to #77512 - kanadetenshi ONLINE (02/07/2015) [-]

Bill probably only seemed center because we had a republican congress during his presidency.
He'd be viewed as an obstructionist if he were to far left
User avatar #77518 to #77512 - akkere ONLINE (02/07/2015) [-]
This covers a pretty far range, but some of these points are really microsized up that might not give you a clear idea of the total attitude they have with the position and the degree they're applying it to. In any event, most of, if not all of these positions have been cited, so you can read further on and cross reference with other articles on the web.

As for the quotes she's made, they more or less get butchered from being copied and pasted but I wouldn't find it hard to believe she'd say something like the women and war (though I myself can't find the exact quote at the moment).
As for the free market, that comes from one of her own books called "It Takes A Village", which she has confirmed she believes in (the reason it had to be 'confirmed' is because the book was majorly written by a ghost writer named Barbara Feinman).
I haven't used this site in full force to get a feel for how it's data collection is, but votesmart may also provide some key resources; my favorite is the collection of votes for what bills a politician makes, as it's the go-to thing to see if their claimed policy and actual policy is in contradiction.

My personal evaluation is that she's much, much more ham-fisted than Bill Clinton was in both presentation and intent to act, a trait that would require her to be much more heavily-sided onto one side of the spectrum; in her case, the Left.

Typical of how he totally left out that the Crusades were a defensive war against the aggressive expansion of Islam.

If someone wants to bash Christianity, they should at the very least have the sense to use actual atrocities like the inquisitions or the witch hunts. Using the Crusades as an example only inflames the sense that Muslims were wronged (despite it being a defensive war) and emboldens the cause of the extremists.

The one thing that's bothered me most about Barack Obama (other than the obvious reasons) lately is his heavy reliance on PR. He's become a lot more... "lax" with his self-presentation to the public and it especially showed with the State of the Union address. It's almost as if he's noticed that no matter what your terrible record was for action in presidency, as long as people recognize you as "the guy you'd have a beer with" by the end of office, you're in the clear.
It might just be me, as PR management is a perquisite of all politicians, but I feel he's been pushing it a lot more than usual, and I'm curious as to why.

Like Mixed said he had charisma and gave the conservatives hope again and he played a central role during the cold war. They constantly hail him as the example of a great conservative/libertarian mix that republicans should strive for but in reality he was very authoritarian.

In short, he's a Charismatic figure who brought together a fractionalized Republican Party, weakened by the Watergate Scandal and the Ford Presidency. Unfortunately, he brought a lot of the fervent Bible thumpers, alienated by the Democratic Party into the fold.

I think your doing it wrong. People from /politics/ should have full priority and you should schedule this based on our times (the best possible time for the most people here). Use whatever program you want but this should be /politics/ tradition.

A warrior who fights for money is doomed to fail. Which one will fight harder, the one who sees a profit, or the one who sees glory?

If soldiers want to fight for glory, fine.
But I wouldn't want to draft an army and tell them they should fight for glory.

Didn't that also happen once in some city in the Netherlands?
Like, in the time of William of Orange, some professional army attacked a city there and got btfo by some civilians.

Increase the number of kids so that the value of kids decrease.

We already do that with immigration as a proxy.
And now Americans value kids so little they want to institute common core schools.

Should America do what America does best?   
That is, supply arms to a country (Ukraine) that's going through a bit a of crisis?

Pretty simple. If US wants Ukraine to get back Donetsk and Luhansk, they have to supply them. If they just want the crisis ended fast and perhaps give the rebel territories a special status, they should let Merkel handle it.
Either way, Ukraine will come out on the losing side, since the choices are either a long, bloody war, or losing territory.
I see no scenario where Crimea becomes Ukrainian again.
User avatar #77461 to #77438 - levvy (02/06/2015) [-]
its useless, ukraine has guns, tanks, and jets - they can't win. most of all ukraine lacks food and morale. novorossia just has too keep fighting and putting pressure on kiev, then kiev will fall or have another referendum

if the usa wanted to help they should send more food and coats to them. knowing poroshenko even if the usa did send better aid to help him, his troops would never get it, the man is a incompetent fool
User avatar #77514 to #77461 - duudegladiator (02/07/2015) [-]
Ukraine doesn't lack Morale, in fact its been said that they are taking this war with an odd sense of jovality, Ukraine lacks the amount of Anti-tank weapons and spotters necessary to take down the DNR and LNR's seemingly endless supply of armor and APCs. The amount of militants in Ukraine are clearly not realistic to a separatist movement but instead to a full fledged false flag war between Ukraine and Russia with the DNR and LNR getting completely infused with Russian soldiers, Russian supplies, Russian weapons, and Russian heavy equipment.

They have the food to keep going for the next few years by themselves, its the matter of infrastructure that applies to how they keep supplied. The main reason that Ukraine is "losing" is because they are actually acting like a civilized nation and trying follow peace accords that were set out. Of course the DNR and LNR supposedly say that those accords do not apply to them, but if it does not apply to them, then why should Ukraine even attempt to abide by a piece of paper that their enemies are clearly violating?

No what fucking differance does it make who owns crimera! Why fuel the fire and cause even more suffering?
#77439 to #77438 - valeriya (02/06/2015) [-]
It's a big enough mess as it is, it could work. In the sense that it'd create a bigger mess but force a conclusion faster meaning the mess could begin to be fixed. It's been tried before as well, not talking about in Afghanistan either. We can look at the US in South America, providing arms to friendly regimes. It can get very messy very quickly. In this instance it is best thought of as throwing water at an oil fire. Seems to make sense, but really only makes more of a mess.

Been a long time. Can you in any way speak of your experience in whatever you were doing?
#77448 to #77446 - valeriya (02/06/2015) [-]
I can there's nothing stopping me aside from myself I'm not keen on talking about it now, since it's still ongoing, maybe once it's over, I've got short spaces of internet access, during my less busy times, about once or twice weekly if I'm lucky, I usually use it to keep in touch with people, and to download some short or funny videos for younger people. Just think of it like this, I have the skills and knowledge to do a lot of good most importantly the ability, much more good then I can in the UK. That's the why I'll tell you what at a later day.
