    Free enterprise capitalism means that companies can market to whomever they want (obviously some restrictions apply).

    What is it with the Proud Boy fetish over breakfast cereal anyway? Second degree initiation (name five cereals while being beaten, lol) O_o



    Maybe you can add this one to the list :xf.wink:

    I think we can do it with only sterilizing the half that voted for Biden / Harris.

    You did:
    upload_2021-5-16_9-4-42.png

    Also.. mask are designed to protect the wearer. Why else would you wear a mask when handling chemicals, painting, sand blasting, etc..

    Do you think King David was a "meek" person? I'm not comparing the King David to Pres. Trump but neither were meek.

    Trump isn't the President.. get over it.

    If you want to engage in a debate, don't start with a fallacy followed by an insult.

    The depopulation agenda criminals and their accomplices in this thread trying to normalize the omnipresent attack on children's minds, saying it's just free market capitalism.

    "The transgender agenda is used to indoctrinate children into a gender confused society that is filled with corruption and laws to silence the public by using minorities as a deterrent."

    ---------
    One year ago: National Education Association video shows how to indoctrinate children into transgender agenda
    "These are second graders in the video, so between 7 years and 8 years. And instead of teaching them math, or English, or science, which our kids are woefully deficient in, they’re being taught how to switch their genders."

    -------------
    Dec. 2022: Cartoon Network Now Teaching Kids Gender Pronouns
    "The Cartoon Network is not only in the business of entertaining kids, but indoctrinating them with LGBTQ teachings, including instructing them through its newly released comic strip to use gender pronouns according to their preferred gender identity."

    Of course masks offer some protection to the wearer, but they were not designed for viral applications. The best option being n95. Large droplets from a wearers sputum as they speak or cough can be captured in the mask before they spread. New masks are currently being designed that neutralize viral aerosols.

    If you want to have a healthy debate, don't start with an insult followed by a fallacy.

    King David lived approximately 1000 years before Christ and prophesized HIS coming, don't get the two confused.

    After suspending thousands of accounts for exposing the truth including me, and people leaving on their own, I guess they have to make up for the loss some kind of way. Funny.

    It's nothing new. You must be young (naive) there's been a history of using cartoons to indoctrinate children's minds, even before your time. Parents permit kids to watch TV and purchase products in the market. The right of choice and tolerance are themes that seem to be lacking in the alt-right (even alt-lite).

    Also what depopulation 'agenda' and 'accomplices' innuendo are you referring to? The fact that our world is in many places overpopulated and increasing is a global problem; not so much for countries like Canada, but in other countries like China (formerly implemented policies to offset their rapid population growth such as the One-Child policy). Not even WW3 will stop human population growth. The 'fix' will require lowering impact.

    So your position is that it's ok to indoctrinate children into the transgender agenda, and the excuse is because it's in the name of tolerance.

    I'll keep quoting what other people say, since you wanted to delve into it.

    I hope you liked it : ))))
    We're not into euphemisms, don't you know? We say it like it is. Almost everything you say here is in alignment with a depopulation agenda, put into motion by those psychos who believe that the untermensch is breathing "their" oxygen.

    We tolerate violence in cartoons, killing in video games, so where do we draw the line? I believe the onus is on parents to educate and talk to their kids, don't just use the tube as a convenient babysitter.

    If you say so, I haven't noticed, I don't watch TV or subscribe to MSM. I have been accused of being a leftist more than once for having a social conscience, but mainly by default, since I don't follow the 'party' line.

    The 13% use the word wholesale.... Many White people have lost their jobs and careers for saying Far Less in the last year.

    We on the conservative side condemn the violence in cartoons and video games, unfortunately it appears that it's being tolerated due to mostly flying under the radar. Agree with not using the tube as babysitter.

    Just to make it clear, it's my current perception, I didn't make a histogram of your posts or anything like that.

    After countless reading of posts... I feel the difference in you and us is simple.... You are indoctrinated into Socialism ...which is what the progressive party of liberals are now into ... So you will absolutely most always agree with the US Democratic party no matter the narrative... That is your indoctrination from the Canadian government.

    The Masks are a form of control... so is the covid vaccine... that is why if you did like you were told and get the covid vaccine... you can ditch the mask as a treat... Children as opposed to adults take far more programming so the "Do as you are told" continues

    Agreed, alot of our conditioning has to do with upbringing and experience. I don't blindly trust our government or economists either. However, I'm thankful to have had healthcare coverage and decent public education. Had to work overseas lots because that's where the jobs were at the time. Now I just try to keep it simple and sustainable. Though I've got lots on my table, I maintain a pretty low carbon footprint and environmental impact compared to most.

    @.X. Here is an interesting profile of the differences and similarities between traditional political axis, enviromental positions and moral separation of parties in the US and Canada, as compiled by non-affiliated European researchers. (Arrows denote movement from the previous election to the election in 2015, giving you a sense of party positioning jockeying between elections.)

    Canada

    [​IMG]
    2019 analysis - all of those lower-left parties received two-thirds of the vote. The Conservatives continued to become more regressive and picked up only a third of the vote. The Conservatives, despite being highly differentiated from the rest of the political parties, are merely the Official Opposition and the Liberals are able to pass legislation with support from one of two other parties on the center-left, the NDP or Bloc Quebecois.

    USA

    [​IMG]
    This is the same chart from the US. The Democratic Party picked up almost 3 million more of the popular vote with an unmotivated voter base, while the Republican Party continued steaming to the right with a highly motivated base. The 42% approval rating of Donald Trump per FiveThirtyEight maps nicely to this.

    Note that the Republicans moved slightly right in 2016 to an even more extreme position. If you look at the axes, the Republican starting position was further right than the Democratic Party’s end position was to the left. The assessment doesn’t show how a country governs, but the overt nationalism, adulation of authoritarian dictators, suppression of protests, and walking away from international treaties suggests that the Trump Administration is governing to the right of the campaign, meaning that arrow progress upward and away.


    Conclusion:

    When will these increasingly isolated and narrowly based conservative parties learn the lesson of demographics and broaden their tents again? Hopefully soon. The world needs the US especially to have a useful conservative voice at the table in policy discussions, a voice that accepts empirical reality but has a different perspective on the appropriate mix of policy measures to address it. Right now, the Republicans are missing in action, and Canada’s Conservatives aren’t much better.
