Re: World News Thread

I hardly know where to start in talking about this. Canadians have know for years that the residential schools native children were forced to attend, beginning in 1884, were horrible places. Now, a survey done at a former residential school in Kamloops, B.C., has uncovered 215 undocumented graves of...

Happy Birthday, Christopher Lee!

This article on FB contains quite a few new nuggets of information about him, including a joke Roger Moore played on him during the filming of The Man With the Golden Gun!

Re: Black Lives Don't Matter... As Black Lives?

Jefferson suggested that there were natural differences between the races and asked scientists to find them. If science could prove that black people were naturally and inherently inferior (he saw Indigenous people as culturally deficient—a shortcoming that could be remedied), there would be no con...

Re: TV obsessions—come on, admit it!

I've added Shadow and Bone to my list. Netflix doesn't seem to have Call the Midwife, though. At least not Canadian Netflix. Jude, when I first signed up for Netflix last year, it DID have Call the Midwife. But they are constantly juggling and changing things around. I have Rogers cable, and the se...

Re: Israel and Gaza

Bëor, I have seen videos of Palestinian school children being taught to march around their classes with wooden rifles, chanting anti-Israeli slogans. They are being thoroughly indoctrinated to hate. On the other side, Israeli soldiers are shooting kids for throwing stones at their tanks. :cry: As fo...

Re: 2020 Election: Predictions, Results and Reactions

Wow. 'Tourism!' If tourists that badly behaved came to my country, I'd be closing the borders!

Oh wait, they're already closed... :D

Re: TV obsessions—come on, admit it!

YES T.V. is rerunning episodes of 'Call the Midwife' every weekday in the late afternoon. I can't tell you just how much I LOVE this series!! The acting is uniformly excellent, the characters seem so real, and great attention is taken to detail to make sure the stories and people accurately reflect ...

Re: The Murder of George Floyd and the Response To It

By contrast, Biden made a wonderful, heart-felt speech, as well as speaking personally with Floyd's family: The President called a guilty verdict like the one rendered Tuesday "much too rare" and said it was "not enough" to cure all of society's problems. "For so many people...

Re: The Murder of George Floyd and the Response To It

I think the best that I can say is that I feel less bad than I would have under any other result. I saw a post elsewhere that said, "This wasn't the perfect outcome. The perfect outcome would have been for this to never have happened in the first place." :( Below is the original police st...
