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.

I'm losing my religion Doc
This would no doubt a good thing for the world at large.

(but judging by your posts today I highly doubt it)
LOL the religion was you Doc, I deliberated whether to post it ( i doubted you would get it) I should have gone with my first instinct.
To be honest, I knew that.

In gathering your quotes above I noticed you said it once before. :D

A deadly mishap in Russia's Far North, and a nuclear mystery lingers

https://www.cnn.com/2019/08/12/europe/r ... index.html

Isotopes are variants of a particular chemical element which differ in neutron number, and consequently in nucleon number. All isotopes of a given element have the same number of protons but different numbers of neutrons in each atom

The United States is learning much from the failed missile explosion in Russia. We have similar, though more advanced, technology. The Russian “Skyfall” explosion has people worried about the air around the facility, and far beyond. Not good!

Over the Internet, you can pretend to be anyone or anything.

I'm amazed that so many people choose to be complete twats.

Trump mocks CNN’s Chris Cuomo over viral video: ‘I thought Chris was Fredo also’

President Trump ripped CNN’s Chris Cuomo as an "out-of-control animal" on Tuesday in response to a viral video in which the “Cuomo Prime Time” host threatened a man who apparently had called him "Fredo."

A video of the confrontation, which originally surfaced on the YouTube channel "That's The Point with Brandon”...

The confrontation took place Sunday at a bar on New York's Shelter Island...

"No, punk-ass bitches from the right call me 'Fredo.' My name is Chris Cuomo. I'm an anchor on CNN," Cuomo responded. "'Fredo' was from 'The Godfather.' He was a weak brother and they use that as an Italian slur -- are any of you Italian?... It's a f---ing insult to your people. It's an insult to your fuckin' people. It's like the N-word for us. Is that a cool fucking thing?"

The president later sent another tweet directed at Cuomo, who recently hosted a CNN town hall on gun control.

“Would Chris Cuomo be given a Red Flag for his recent rant? Filthy language and a total loss of control,” Trump tweeted. “He shouldn’t be allowed to have any weapon. He’s nuts!”
:lol:

Donald Trump Jr. took notice of the viral video and offered his thoughts on the situation.

“Hey @ChrisCuomo, take it from me, “Fredo” isn’t the N word for Italians, it just means you’re the dumb brother,” he wrote.

Cuomo announced Monday afternoon, hours before the video went viral, that "Cuomo Prime Time" was on hiatus this week and would be back on-air Aug. 19.

Ironically, the New York Post unearthed an old video in which Cuomo playfully referred to himself as “Fredo” during a 2010 radio interview.
Gotta admire these CNN hosts valiantly fighting back against racism!

Last week CNN host Don Lemon fought back by informing the world it is racist for a white man to call a black man "stupid". :eh:

Speaking of CNN host Don Lemon, here's some more CNN news from today:

https://www.washingtonexaminer.com/news ... mptons-bar
CNN's Don Lemon sued for alleged assault at Hamptons bar

A lawsuit filed in Suffolk County, New York, claims that CNN host Don Lemon inflicted "emotional pain and suffering" on a man during a July 2018 incident.

The lawsuit details last summer's incident by alleging that after placing his hands down his own pants and "vigorously rubbing his genitalia," Lemon "intensely pushed his fingers against Plaintiff’s face under Plaintiff’s nose, forcing Plaintiff’s head to thrust backward." He allegedly further harassed the man, Dustin Hice, with aggressive sexual questions.

When the cameras are turned off … Mr. Lemon’s actions are in stark and disturbing contrast to the public persona he attempts to portray.
The man Don Lemon allegedly attacked was white

... fair then to expect Mr Lemon to play the race card in response to this lawsuit?

Remember when CNN was a respectable news network?

Neither do I!! :lol:

CNN's April Ryan Has Bodyguard Violently Eject Journalist, Steal Camera

It’s been a bad week for CNN. Hosts Chris Cuomo and Don Lemon both embroiled in their own scandals, one even caught on camera. Now CNN political analyst April Ryan is in hot water after a local journalist claims he was assaulted by Ryan’s bodyguard while covering an event she was speaking at, earlier this month.

Charlie Kratovil, a local New Jersey journalist and editor of New Brunswick Today, told his story on Twitter of covering the 4th annual New Jersey Parent Summit, where Ryan was speaking on August 3. You can see the thread below. He explained that he went through all the proper channels, documenting his story with evidence, along the way. According to Fox News, they also saw the emails showing “Kratovil had previously RSVP'd to the event and received confirmation.”

As for Ryan, she has been trying to squash the story, allegedly blocking people who retweet it, and staying silent on the matter, as of Wednesday morning.
Hmmm... April Ryan is black, her bodyguard is black, and the tossed journalist is white.

So I guess the reason they ejected Kratovil and roughed him up is... he's a racist?

SO. MANY. RACISTS. Keep up the good work CNN...

Christopher C. Cuomo
Appreciate all the support but - truth is I should be better than the guys baiting me. This happens all the time these days. Often in front of my family. But there is a lesson: no need to add to the ugliness; I should be better than what I oppose.

"Did Epstein commit suicide?" asked an attendee at the event.

"I did not have murderous relations with that man!" Mr Clinton insisted.

Itks nice to see that there are still sensible conservatives around, like Dubya’s speech writer, David Frum:
August 10, 1969: San Clemente, California—President Richard Nixon accused his predecessor Lyndon Baines Johnson of complicity in the assassination of President John F. Kennedy. Speaking with reporters on the first day of a 10-day stay at his Pacific Ocean vacation home …

Of course, that never happened. Obviously. How could it; how dare it? But had it happened, such an accusation—by a president, against a former president—would have convulsed the United States and the world. Today, President Donald Trump accused his predecessor Bill Clinton—or possibly his 2016 campaign opponent, the former first lady and Secretary of State Hillary Clinton—of complicity in the death of the accused sex trafficker Jeffrey Epstein.

Many seem to have responded with a startled shrug. What do you expect? It’s just Trump letting off steam on Twitter.

Reactions to actions by Trump are always filtered through the prism of the ever more widely accepted view—within his administration, within Congress, within the United States, and around the world—that the 45th president is a reckless buffoon; a conspiratorial, racist moron, whose weird comments should be disregarded by sensible people.
