US Erection 12 *AND* 16

The primary goal of this site is to provide mature, meaningful discussion about the Vancouver Canucks. However, we all need a break some time so this forum is basically for anything off-topic, off the wall, or to just get something off your chest! This forum is named after poster Creeper, who passed away in July of 2011 and was a long time member of the Canucks message board community.

So the Honduran kid that is on the Time cover....

Mother was deported once before in 2013

Mother took the kid without the father's knowledge and headed back to the US border to try again
Over the Internet, you can pretend to be anyone or anything.

I'm amazed that so many people choose to be complete twats.

Yeah Reef, you can't state that the writer is biased and then claim you're "not even saying it is right or wrong".

Look up those big words in a dictionary before you use em man!

Well I wasn't posting as a mod but, now that you mention it, you do nothing to stir debate.

Believe it or not Reef some people have reasons for the things they believe.

(expressing those reasons can lead to healthy debate)

You seem more like a "How does this opinion look on me" kinda guy.

A "fuck facts" kinda guy amirite?

I don't understand why the Donald seems surprised that Harley Davidson are moving production to Europe.

A) His tariffs on steel and aluminium means that production in the USA becomes more expensive.

B) Since the EU response to the steel tariffs has been (among other things) a 25% tariff on motor cycles, this makes a Harley even more expensive in Europe, which is their second most important market.

Unless they do anything, their bikes will become between USD 2000 and 3000 more expensive in Europe, which almost certainly means lost market share. One option is to swallow the cost, and lower the price by USD 2000 to offset the tariff, but that will lower (if not eliminate) their profit margine. A smarter solution is to move production to Europa, as that means they escape both the higher cost for steel and aluminium and the tariffs for imports to the EU.

It's the sound business decision.

If Trump has even the most a basic understanding of business, as he claims to have, this ought to be self evident to him.
So why does he feign surprise?

In the 80's, the US imposed a tariff on motorcycles over 700cc on an effort to protect Harley Davidson.

Supposedly Trump also said that he would tax HD more if they did something like this. Again, like he has shown in the past, he has no idea that you cannot tax a single company differently than another company. Is there any wonder that he went bankrupt?

Supreme Court has ruled.

Trump's executive order immigration ban of people from 5 countries is lawful.

Victory!

Like hounds, people have to be blooded. They have to be given the taste for savagery. Fascism does this by building up the sense of threat from a despised out-group. This allows the members of that group to be dehumanised. Once that has been achieved, you can gradually up the ante, working through the stages from breaking windows to extermination.

It is this next step that is being test-marketed now. It is being done in Italy by the far-right leader and minister for the interior Matteo Salvini. How would it go down if we turn away boatloads of refugees? Let’s do a screening of the rough-cut of registering all the Roma and see what buttons the audience will press. And it has been trialled by Trump: let’s see how my fans feel about crying babies in cages. I wonder how it will go down with Rupert Murdoch.

Stanley Park Teahouse manager fired after refusing to serve Trump supporter

The manager of a popular Vancouver teahouse has been fired after refusing service to a Trump supporter.

A man wearing a Make America Great Again hat was refused service at the Teahouse in Stanley Park by the restaurant manager, according to the restaurant's management company.

The Sequoia Company says it opted to fire the restaurant manager for not abiding by its "philosophy of tolerance."

"Sequoia does not support intolerance of any kind, and it is because of these principles that we cannot discriminate against someone based on their support for the current administration in the United States or any other bona fide political party," Sequoia said in an official statement.
