    Attempted assassination of Donald Trump 13 July 2024

    And that is, IMHO, the most important aspect in the fiasco that occurred this past Saturday. There is (or should) be a big difference between the resources available (and funded) to protect a sitting president and a former holder of the office (or a candidate). At what stage does...

    2022 CPC Leadership Discussion: Et tu Redeux

    At $9m CAD, the property may be a relative bargain. The current available 3 bedrooms listed in the building are in the $13,000,000 – $22,750,000 USD range. But they would probably also go for a lot less. The one likely purchased by Canada was listed last year for $10,195,000 USD...

    LGBTQ Stuff (split from other political threads)

    What other events do the levels of government provide services or funding to and what is the impact? I don't see much all that much objection for support to professional sports teams looking for venues in which to earn money. The usual justification for providing such support is economics...

    should I drop a Canadian military career?

    "Norway" and "Abilify" rings a bell. Were you previously on these means under another name and subsequently banned? Are we going to go through this again?

    Will leading citizens of Connoquenessing Township be inspired to erect a monument to the event of 13 July 2024 that occurred on the outskirts of their community since there was precedent in acknowledging the attempted assassination of a future president. About 5.25 miles from where former...

    But who's the "locals"? I'm sure that multiple agencies fall into that category. A quick glance at what some of the "locals" had to say about the event that happened in "Butler, PA" City of Butler PD https://butlercitypd.org/ Butler County Sheriff https://www.butlercountypa.gov/346/Sheriff...

    A Deeply Fractured US

    Dinner for one this evening, sir? Okay, it's not all for him. It was a reception for the Clemson Tigers, winners of college football national championship. They do, however, seem to have the same discerning palate as the former president.

    Have your say on the future of Canadian Military Colleges: Review Board launches consultations with Canadians online portal

    They seem to be situating the estimate by primarily only seeking input from students, graduates and staff of the milcols. I would be interested in seeing how many of those would respond with comments that one of the important milestones in their life and career was one of the worst decisions...

    Britain's Conservatives planning to bring back compulsory national service.

    There was a tax case heard in the Exchequer Court of Canada in 1947 that refers (somewhat) to this, but does describe how Canadian soldiers, sailors and airmen were subject to income tax during the war. https://www.canlii.org/en/ca/exch/doc/1947/1947canlii623/1947canlii623.html It doesn't...

    U.K. General Election, 4 Jul 2024

    While the expression "politics makes strange bedfellows" may describe what led to the "progressive" in the Progressive Conservative Party title, characterizing it as uniting left and right against the centre (Liberals) is a stretch.
