    Does Getting Promoted Alter Your Moral Compass?

    This is a no win discussion depending on who from what rank replies. IMO yes sometimes but not always. A private/corporal will have a different viewpoint than a S/NCO or Officer.

    Cold Storage in Norway

    On my first Ex in Norway (1980) we left equipment there for future use. At that time 1 RCR in London held the AMFL role.

    A Deeply Fractured US

    Actually I believe Trump truly believes it would work. It has came out when the elected lawmakers were sheltering from the riot Trump was trying to phone some Republican Senators to get them to attempt the overturning of some votes. In my opinion it was another example of Trump's use of bullying...

    A Deeply Fractured US

    But the size of the protest overwhelmed the resources of the locals and very little help was sent in by the Federal government. In fact extra help would have been counterproductive to Trumps agenda. But BLM protests got far more Federal resources.

    A Deeply Fractured US

    I'm not surprised at protests but to this scale and illegality I didn't expect this.

    A Deeply Fractured US

    Would you now be surprised after what's going on right now? Conclusions may very but pictures tell a far better story. And the live video I'm seeing isn't fake.

    CDN/US Covid-related political discussion

    IMO there are a couple things wrong with this comment. Phillips only resigned his cabinet position. Still a MPP. Arcand doesn't hold a cabinet position to resign from. Secondly neither of them have broke any laws other than common sense. For this there is no actual law broken. Double standard...

    OCdt Speaks at Freedom Rally

    SeaKingTacco I hope your right but the path of least resistance will most likely be taken. I can see the argument "If I showed up on parade like that I would have been charged for being out of uniform". How can it be argued both ways, that now he was in uniform as nothing he was wearing was...

    OCdt Speaks at Freedom Rally

    But with his uniform being so screwed up could it be proven he was in uniform? My guess is for easy legal reasons a quick voluntarily release will be the simplest solution.

    OCdt Speaks at Freedom Rally

    My guess is as a Cadet officer the fact that he's not on the pay roll at the time may help some in his defence. Notice I said some! Still will have some troubles.

    Flynn urges Martial Law and "temporary" Suspension of Constitution

    Comparing a basically 2 party system such as the US has to our Canadian multi party system in respect to having a leader of the country elected without a majority of the votes is not a fair comparison. When was the last time any Canadian Prime Minister's party got the majority of the over all...
