Doing compulsory military service for say 6 months would be the best thing that could happen to GEN Z. This younger generation lacks incentive, and initiative, and would teach men to be real men. It would also teach them to put country first, and they wouldn't be so entitled.
Re-electing Trudeau means higher costs of living, spiralling inflation, and soaring interest rates.

They are the Vatican's guards. So long as no one attacks the Vatican, all's good with the Swiss army.
I know people from Switzerland. Every male must go through training and do yearly service in Switzerland. Sure maybe in preparation to defend the Vatican too.
I'm not your enemy. We have a difference of opinion, and I can live with that. Can you?

Completely agree, unfortunately close to half of those men would be screaming blue murder before setting foot at the training camp over the fact you assumed their pronoun.

This time why not conscript women for this war? And alphabet people. And politicians. Only fair everyone gets thrown into the grinder.
Conscription wouldn't work anyway. Due to complete hatred/ disrespect of the libdp and distaste of what Canada has become.
Some may view my politically incorrect opinions as harsh and may be offended by them. Some think political correctness will be our undoing.

Might be fun to watch a few of them get dressed down by their Company Commander at Boot Camp. :biggrin:

Then get their hair shaved off etc, etc.
One day you will find someone who is obsessed with you.

In boot camp, the drill sergeant would straighten out the pronouns, loudly and clearly.

We have to get back to the answer "and your point is ?"

"The Staff Sergeant wasn't nice to me and he yelled at me." - "Oh really, well I know how to fix that. Come with me..... do 100 push ups and then run around the parade square 25 times with this rifle held over your head, you'll feel much better."

Don't forget the buckets of sand on each end of that rifle. (I have seen it in person. And luckily it wasn't me!)

Boot camp would probably make one hell of a funny reality program, follow a similar program as the Swiss.
I don't give a damn whether people/posters like me or dislike me, I'm not on earth to win any popularity contests.
