Summit is off.



This official White House statement is a masterpiece of passive-aggressive excuse-making.

I can't say for certain who actually penned it.
But the oozing rationalization defense mechanism appears to have Stephen Miller's  DNA all over it.

Hey, me too, and I don't even know stevie like you know stevie!

Say hello to stevie for me,eh?
I will. I just never seem to catch him at home. Did get to see Eric a week or so ago. He works at a Construction Supply Company in Fremont, just down the hill from Stevie's place, where he still lives. Said Stevie was busy as ever. I had gone there to get some beam hangers for the deck/porch addition we're doing. It's coming out really nice. But it's been a huge amount of work. At least for us two old folks.

Well no. Darwinism is a much better example.

Allan Savory, Mark Shepard, James Shapiro....

You just never get tired of stepping on that rake, do you?


I picture Bluffy having an ARPD (Automatic Rake Placing Device). It precedes him, making sure there is a rake for every step he takes.

Maybe I have this wrong but I don't think what Trump said is attributing a false quote. It was either rhetoric or hyperbole and not a big deal.

That's the way he talks!
If that were true, he should learn to talk a different way, perhaps even the way most people talk.

Most people aren't billionaires and president so maybe he knows something we don't?
So is Putin, but way more so. Lots more money, lots more direct power, has just been reelected for the third time, by a really massive margin over the other candidates. And, for all intents and purposes, he is absolutely immune to anything like impeachment or official charges against him.

Maybe he knows something you don't.

What a classic. Wealth is an indicator of intelligence. Power is an indicator of intelligence. Luck had nothing to do with it. Nor did any cheating. Nor did being a complete jerk with no regard for anything but him or her self. Nor did having a rich daddy.

Actually, Putin didn't have rich daddy. Frankly, I like Putin better than I like Drumpf. He may be a first class dictator but I feel he really does love Russia. Loves himself as much or more, but deep down there he cares for Russia and will do just about anything to benefit Russia, except, of course, to his own detriment.
I like Jesus and Gandhi better than both of them.

EDIT: also Allan Savory.
Oh yeah?!? Well I like Stevie Pinhead better than I like any of the people you have mentioned. Even all of them combined.
So take that!!

Most people aren't ignorant illiterate egomaniacal morons, so maybe he doesn't know anything we don't?
At least not anything of value.

Gee, Heinz - Trump has shown no respect to my elected leader, even bragged and laughed about lying to his face. Should I respect Trump too or do I get a pass?

You are a canuk, you get a pass.

But you really seem upset about that; you mention it often enough.

I am. It's symbolic of the disregard and contempt with which Trump and his cronies regard Canada. The US is a monstrous country, with which our economy is inextricably entwined. Their culture, massive as it is, inevitably influences our own culture, usually not to the better. (For example, there are now more than one hundred hate groups in Canada, mostly white supremacists, all directly involved with their US counterparts).

Most Presidents at least pay lip service to respecting our sovereignty. Trump is something else. He's a bully and he lies without even thinking about it. He can't be trusted to keep his word on anything. He seesaws on trade, NATO, TPP, lumber, dairy, god knows what his oil stance is going to be in the future. A much smaller economy like Canada's requires stability, something we will never have with Trump in office.

His appalling environment and wildlife decisions may be disastrous for Canadian lands and wildlife as well.

Of course it was upsetting, why the hell would it not be?

Although I mostly repeat it to try to ding it into Dave's thick skull that his hero Trump is a bully and a liar. H never responds, of course.

Allow me to apologize to you on behalf of our idiot president, for any sleight either perceived or real, against your president.

Canada also benefits greatly from its close proximity to the US. For one thing, you do not need to maintain a very strong military against the possibility of Russia incursion; you are under the US nuclear umbrella. And trade with the US is a major factor of your economy. Sometime you have to accept the good with the bad. Trump won't be around forever, but the US and Canada will, hopefully.

Americans always boast about their military reach irt Canada. Heinz, nobody wants to nuke Canada. No one wants to invade Canada. Russia at her worst has better ideas about where to invade.  Despite Trump's whining, the US does not really want Canada to develop a powerful military. (Long history of 'persuasion'). The US military itself is a significant factor in Canadian military deaths (friendly fire). The US 'nuclear umbrella' is just a great big threat to the world. The most likely invader of Canada IS the US, probably when climate change really impacts US water resources in some unpleasant future.

Lol, we know how economies work! Seriously, the sooner you get an American government that's somewhat sane, the happier we'll be. This guy sucks.



Right. The US is going to invade Canada. I didn't know you were a nutcase.
Yay! HH takes the line "The most likely invader of Canada IS the US, probably when climate change really impacts US water resources in some unpleasant future." as indicating the US IS GOING TO INVADE CANADA!!!!!!! Any day now.

I guess English is not your native language. Nor subtlety.

Think about HH, how likely is it the US would invade, as in militarily, Canada?
That's exactly the worst scenario of invasion Canada faces.

Thing is, HH, Canada isn't a threat to any other country. It isn't out there actively militarily pissing off other countries/peoples. It's not the world's policeman and I mean that in the sort of how police in the US are often thought of, especially by the poor and/or non-white population way. There's only one reason anyone would invade Canada and that would be obtain control of more of North America. I suppose Mexico could, theoretically, have such aspirations (I am pretty sure there's nobody in Mexico that thinks such a move on their part would have any chance of success and would quite likely turn out very badly for Mexico and themselves, personally) but I think we can discount any of the Central American or Caribbean nations without further discussion.

That leaves the US.
