    Trudeau Popularity - or not. Nanos research

    Trudeau was interviewed on the Ryan Jespersen Show, which is about as left as you can get in Alberta. https://podcasts.apple.com/ca/podcast/exclusive-prime-minister-justin-trudeau/id1540709742?i=1000646289274 And Jen Gersen of The Line takes the PM to the woodshed...

    I think Irving is currently doing testing welds/cutting/forms for the CSC as we speak. I think the hull and engineering side of the house pretty much set. I also believe that Batch 5 (if we get there) will look fairly different from Batch 1.

    AOR Replacement & the Joint Support Ship (Merged Threads)

    ALSC was dependent on Army and Air Force ponying up money and PYs. Didn’t happen and that’s why we are getting new AORs in 2025 vice 2015.

    2024 Wildfire Season

    The 1980's were particularly dry on the Prairies. No snow at all for two years, sloughs that were never dry were almost dry, trainloads of hay came from the east to help us feed the cattle. Creeks and rivers were dry or almost dry. It was bad. Then the late 80's it started to rain and snow and...

    I can see batch 2 being a little different from batch 1, and so on. You look at the Cadillacs. St Laurent and Annapolis had the same hull form and engine plant but a lot different above the main deck.

    Chinese Military,Political and Social Superthread

    Most of Stalin’s useful idiots were the intellectual elites of the west. I’d argue that Barton has no concept of loyalty to nothing but his bank account. His culpability to the opioid crisis is just one example.

    Annuitant and Class C

    While I am on annuitant leave, do I need a leave pass to go out of the country? Aren't I just a Class A SHAD at that point? Waiting on my next Class B to start of course!

    So the law of unintended consequences raises it head. Lets look at the tobacco industry, which its main product is banned from advertising, being obviously displayed at retail outlets, sold to minors, and not allowed to sponsor anything. The industry is currently making eye-watering profits...

    LGBTQ Stuff (split from other political threads)

    My GF's daughter hangs out with a crowd where the common refrain is that everything sucks. She is currently at a ski resort in BC and has been warned a couple of times about her piss pour attitude and how it drags the workplace down. She is so pissed off at the world its tiring to listen to her...

    The Constellations are the replacement for the OHP that should have happened instead of the LCS fiasco. So they are the frigates to do the things that the Burkes are not designed for. These ships do not need to be high end AAW and strike platforms but GP with an eye to ASW and for want of a...
