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.

That doesn't even make sense. And it's barely humorous.
Reef doesn't appreciate my points or sense of humour either. :D

It appears that when you can't win with strawmen, misdirection, or distraction, you go with avoidance, as you are doing now.
Reef also claims I must be cheating somehow...

I'll leave you to your debates with Reefer on the existence of global warming. At least you can rack up a few "wins" there. :)
Wait... are you claiming to be a better poster than the Reefman?? :wow:

I come here for the popcorn and the fishing.

No one wins anything against the great Reef, I just have more important things to do than banter with someone not at my intellectual level. Plus I like to poke the bear.

Living in a smallish free market country, I know that the decisions of the leaders of the US, the EU and Russia may have a far greater effect on my life than the decisions of the Swedish government, so I try to stay on top of things, and since Putin managed to destabilize US politics, things have gotten far more stressful.
Maybe that stress is the result of the socialist/globalist EU agenda importing what...10% of your population in poor, benefit seeking economic refugees?

All those poor people absorbing the affordable housing, straining those glorious socialist benefits that worked much better when you had a prosperous and motivated population all contributing to society.

Is "All Mans Right" still working for the rural population of Sverige?
Well, yeah. Look at history. The countries with the most immigration tend to be the ones that perform the best.

Before the US started to regulate immigration they were the envy of the world. Since they started regulating it their economy has started to stagnate.

I believe in free markets, including the freedom of movement. Border control and tariffs just cause inefficiencies and suffering.

Yet the EU has very little to do with immigration in Sweden, apart from many former East Block countries (Poland, Hungary, Slovakia) within the EU not pulling their weight when it comes to accepting refugees, thus causing more of them to end up in Sweden.

As for Allemamsrätten ( https://visitsweden.com/about-the-right ... ic-access/ ) it still works fairly well, but some foreigners (and/or immigrants) don’t really understand the limitations. You can pitch a tent pretty much anywhere, except in someone’s garden or a cultivated field, but just for one night. If you plan to stay longer, you should ask for permission first. Also, you are allowed to access pretty much all land, except for private gardens and cultivated fields, but you should leave it in the same pristine condition that you found it. You can’t leave garbage behind.

It’s a big land though. Sweden is bigger than Japan, and they’re like 150 million.
We’re just 10 million, so there is still plenty of room. :drink:

...why? Who cares this much about a foreign leader?
The Kurds?
Oh ya i forgot about the swedish kurdish contingent
Some 85,000 Kurds in Sweden, as compared to 20,000 in the US and 16,000 in Canada. Almost 900,000 in Germany.

For a whileSweden was the country that published most books in Kurdish, as it happened to be illegal to do so in all four countries where they traditionally live.

It worked when you have a respectful and honest population... native Swedes

Thanks to your beloved EU/4th Reich mass migration policy this very unique and accommodating tradition is toast.

I got to experience what a welcoming and fenceless world was like when I visited and we went on a hike around varmland.

What a shame that its all coming to an end

Ah one of those questions, yeah no I will not lower myself to your level of debating or lack there of.

I appreciate that you finally recognize that I am a Genius. A troll - not so much but I dabble in it now and then.

"Slaughter in Syria"

ABC News claims Lord Trump gave Erdogan a "green light" to unleash the carnage displayed above on the Kurds but wait...

https://www.washingtonexaminer.com/opin ... -gun-range
ABC aired supposedly shocking footage Monday morning purporting to be from the frontline battle between the Syrian Kurds and the invading Turks. The only problem is the footage appears to come from a nighttime demonstration at the Knob Creek Gun Range in West Point, Kentucky.

A spokesperson for ABC conceded it made a big mistake.

"We’ve taken down video that aired on 'World News Tonight Sunday' and 'Good Morning America' this morning that appeared to be from the Syrian border immediately after questions were raised about its accuracy," a spokesman told the Washington Examiner."ABC News regrets the error.”
Oopsie, but hey who among us hasn't made a similar type of "error". :lol:

Honest mistake! :lol: :lol: :lol:

And I didn't say that you said that I said that the whistleblower did nothing wrong (yes it's true, I didn't!).

We can keep this up forever, you see!

I'm not going to get into a quote war with you on the rest of your post. When you treat my "clarification" as an adjustment of my position, rather than an explanation of points already made, you are being (or at least appearing to be) disingenuous. If that's what you're doing that's fine, but then it's trolling rather than an an honest discussion, so there's no point continuing.
:?

That strawman-building dude you created was a strawman...

This !

How else is one going to defend Trump??

The better question is why? It’s indefensible unless one is dumb hillbilly or likes the greedy environment in order to cash in as well.

Speaking of cashing in, I see that the next G7 meeting will be held in the swamp thing’s personal resort...

What will be the defense for that? He doesn’t own the swamp his kids own it?

The Trump strategy will likely simplify the balance of power in the entirety of Syria, thereby increasing the chance of stability. In any event, the morass that has existed there for centuries – felt more acutely these recent decades – will not get worse.

Additionally, there is little chance that Russian influence will increase as U.S. efforts wind down in Syria: this great power will never risk antagonizing Israel, and it will continue to have its hands full keeping Syria and Iran in line while watching what Turkey will do next.

Trump’s strategy has the potential for success because it forces regionally interested parties to balance against each other. Any good foreign policy realist will tell you that there is more chance for lasting peace when parties balance their interests against their adversaries.

Frankly, a realist approach – long neglected in Washington – is far more likely to bring geopolitical peace and stability than our decades-long liberal approach.

The loudest voices we hear from Washington advocate for the status quo. But how long is the United States supposed to protect the PKK from the Turks? Is it to be, as one former Republican presidential candidate said, maybe 100 years? And who are the Kurds in Syria, after all? They are a people without a nation or state, nor are they unified.

President Trump’s congressional critics had the option of passing a resolution on the use of force if they insist on further U.S. intervention in northern Syria. If we do not begin bringing home our troops now from Syria, when will Trump’s critics acquiesce to end our intervention there or anywhere else?

Interesting that they put forth a resolution condemning Trump's pullout

... rather than putting forth a resolution to continue military intervention in Syria.

Reef, what do you make of this? :mex:

Lol, UK you missed that one already; check back about three pages. Typical SL avoidance/distraction tactic.
