Komplain much?
Sufficiently advanced incompetence is indistinguishable from malice. There’s a certain point at which ignorance becomes malice, at which there is simply no way to become THAT ignorant except deliberately and maliciously.

Food for thought.

I wonder why Egypt didn't open their borders to take in these neighbourly, peace-living people. They didn't even want to open their borders to let aid trucks pass through. That took some arm-twisting to allow that to happen. Hmm.

Yes finally after pressure from the US President, the Mexicans allowed the aid to go through.

My belief is that some people use it to show disdain for the subject, if you don't use correct English then it must be a joke ...
The name Canada is now generally accepted as originating from the St. Lawrence Iroquoian word kanata ([kana:taʔ]), meaning 'village' or 'settlement'.
Not sure what the reasoning is for using the letter C instead of K.

And calling trudeau childish gets a :up: up

"and I don’t like what Trudeau is doing to this country but calling them names is childish and says more about my character than it does about theirs."

Canada beats New France.
As for ribbing on the forum I think it often depends who is doing it. If you like or don't dislike a Poster the crack flies.
If it is a Poster you have some weird hateon then if they said good morning you'd probably get steamed :/
I drift blissfully thinking other posters adore me LOL
I see another Forum romance is brewing, ah Love :p

As the media is eager to scrutinize Biden's age, then can we have the same scrutiny on all of Trump’s brain cooked GIBBERISH?

Doritos fires trans influencer over ‘depraved’ tweets

I'm pretty well at a loss with this story.
How can a company be so stupid?
What makes this poor excuse for a human being an "influencer"? Who is "it" influencing?
Our society has hit rock bottom.

Not rock bottom yet.
Rock bottom will be when tampons are in men's washrooms, & absent from females,(as it would be sexist to have tampons in women's washrooms)

We are at least halfway there!!!!!!

JK Rowling reported to UK police for ‘misgendering’ trans broadcaster as a ‘man’

The UK’s first transgender national news anchor has reported “Harry Potter” author JK Rowling to the police for “misgendering” her as a “man” on social media.

India Willoughby, 58, reported having “contacted Northumbria Constabulary” over a series of X posts Sunday by the outspoken author.

Rowling, also 58, called Willoughby “just a man reveling in his misogynistic performance of what he thinks ‘woman’ means: narcissistic, shallow and exhibitionist.”

Rowling had “definitely committed a crime,” Willoughby alleged to Byline TV Wednesday, claiming the best-selling author was guilty of a “cut-and-dry offense.”

“I’m legally a woman, she knows I’m a woman, and she calls me a man.

“It’s a protected characteristic and that is a breach of both the Equalities Act and the Gender Recognition Act. She’s tweeted that out to 14 million followers,” Willoughby wrote.
