US Erection 12 *AND* 16

The primary goal of this site is to provide mature, meaningful discussion about the Vancouver Canucks. However, we all need a break some time so this forum is basically for anything off-topic, off the wall, or to just get something off your chest! This forum is named after poster Creeper, who passed away in July of 2011 and was a long time member of the Canucks message board community.

So, you're saying "where there is smoke, there is fire", right?
Whichever version turns out to be closer to the truth, though, the range of explanations is between bad and worthy of prosecution. Either the Trump campaign was exceptionally naive in meeting Ms Veselnitskaya. Or it colluded with an agent of a foreign power to gain an advantage in the election.

Interesting article in defence of conservatism:
Conservatives did not usually deny the world of science, but doubted that its findings exhausted all that could be known about humanity. During the terrible ideological battles of the 20th century, American conservatives urged common sense upon liberals and socialists tempted by revolution.

The contest between conservatives and the radical right has a history that is worth remembering. Conservatives qualified the Enlightenment of the 18th century by characterizing traditions as the deepest kind of fact. Fascists, by contrast, renounced the Enlightenment and offered willful fictions as the basis for a new form of politics. The mendacity-industrial complex of the Trump administration makes conservatism impossible, and opens the floodgates to the sort of drastic change that conservatives opposed.

We finally find out who the supposed illegal voters are, as Donald Trump thanks some 40,000 boy scouts (ie children) for voting for him... :roll:

The RAISE act is simply too little too late.

If it had been in place in 1885, it could have prevented the entry into the US by Bavarian draft dodger Friedrich Trumpf, who spoke no English and had no particular skills, and could have saved us all from the present unfortunate situation.

Instead he was let in and managed to make himself a small fortune running brothels and restaurants in Seattle and later Yukon, obviously instilling his knack for making money through morally questionable affairs in his descendants. He later tried to move back to Germany, but was deported for having failed to serve in the military, and as the Germans refused to let him settle there, he had to go back to the US.

Really...? I mean, Doc quoted CNN on June 29th, but before that you have to scroll all the way back to May.
Not really much CNN material here. Not sure if anyone here is following them much?
I tend to follow British media more than American, as you might gather from seeing me frequently quoting the BBC, The Guardian and The Economist.

Anyway, here's a scary article from the New Yorker:

Not sure whether I should laugh or cry....

And be scared that such a twit is control of that country.

He is one of the biggest risks to world peace because no one knows what he will do.

Why is N. Korea aloud to have nukes at all?
S. Korea doesn't.

This will never be over until N. Korea has no nukes at all.

Did you know that there are thousands of families still waiting to be re-united since 1953 ?

The young fat little N. Korean's voice only rings loud because it's the only way he stays in power.

I say, let him die.

Korea with no border under democratic rule. (elections), no nukes.

Done! Safer, better world for everyone.

Basically, North Korea is not allowed to have nukes.
But they don't give a shit.

Who is going to enforce it? Who could take their nukes away?
China probably could, but they are torn.

The thing is, South Korea is very closely allied with the USA.
A reunified democratic Korea would also be that.
That means China would suddenly have a land border with a US ally.
They don't want that. Thus they want to keep North Korea as a buffer.

Don't get me wrong, Kim Jong Un gets on their nerves as well.
That's why they started contacting his older brother, who should have inherited the top job in North Korea, but who was kicked out of the country after it turned out he had secretly taken his family to Disneyland. He seemed a lot more mellow, and the Chinese would like North Korea to be less annoying, so... Unfortunately, the second Kim Jong Un heard that the Chinese were trying to cultivate his brother, he made sure to have him offed. They hired two young Malaysian women, who were told they were on a sort of candid camera show, gave them squirt guns with a nerve poison and pointed them in his direction... http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/2017/02 ... s-poison1/

So, yeah, Kim Jong Un has no real friends outside of North Korea, but the Chinese still have his back, sort of, because they do not want a reunified Korea, and for the time being, they don't seem to have another option.

If the North Koreans actually do nuke some one, that might make the Chinese willing to do something about it.
But until that happens, the Chinese will block any international intervention in North Korea.
