    A Hunting Thread- A Swerve from The Global Warming Thread

    If the hunter makes a clean kill, that is likely the best death that animal will have in the wild. Its either that or dying of starvation, getting hit by a vehicle, by some horrible disease, by a piss poor shot and slowly bleeding out running away, or getting their ass eaten off by a bear or...

    A Deeply Fractured US

    But Canada is a "post national state" so therefore there are no stories to tell!

    A Deeply Fractured US

    When I tried to watch Davy Crocket I turned it off not because I was offended, it was because it was so full of US Manifest Destiny Bullshit that I couldn't stand the propaganda.

    I knew that, but I love to toss curve balls and not respond to the dog whistles! LOL!

    A Deeply Fractured US

    I actually think the gratuitous killing that goes on in today's movies make the Bond ones seem pretty tame.

    A Deeply Fractured US

    ^^ Thread de-rail. When Disney+ came out I thought I'd look up some old shows that I loved as a kid. Lo and behold I selected Davy Crockett. 15 minutes into the movie I shut it off. 1960's Disney racism at its finest and the celebration of that genocidal maniac Andrew Jackson was just too...

    Well that group of USN ships had a problem with maintenance and running ships into the ground. https://news.usni.org/2018/04/26/7th-fleet-overworked-suffered-manning-shortage-ahead-fatal-collisions-says-former-co-aucoin

    Military chief warns China and Russia are 'at war with the West' and Canada is not ready

    I was listening to one of the talking heads on one of the networks questioning the sending of a MARLANT ship to the Indian Ocean. Yep, some folks should have a globe on their desk.

    Military chief warns China and Russia are 'at war with the West' and Canada is not ready

    Diplomacy work being done by Navies is an enduring aspect of that service since before the time of the Phoenicians. And that includes being a platform for the velvet glove set to show the flag. Even without the cocktail parties, it has been my experience that we'd host a myriad of military...

    Freedom Convoy protests [Split from All things 2019-nCoV]

    I've said this a dozen times now. What I saw on the TCH between Virden and Brandon MB were things I never saw with the Yellow Vests or the United We Roll movements. Cars and Trucks sitting on the approach roads to the highway with people cheering them on. There was palatable frustration and...

    Freedom Convoy protests [Split from All things 2019-nCoV]

    Chantal Hébert continues to stress that all this support for the enacting the EA may open the door for a government that all these supporters don't like to enact it for railroad blockades or pipeline protests. Then what happens? When it's a group of annoying mainly white guys, folks don't mind...

    Freedom Convoy protests [Split from All things 2019-nCoV]

    Several commentators have said it was refreshing to see and hear that the MP’s and cabinet ministers can talking openly, coherently and with depth instead of just talking points and deflecting. And they didn’t get burnt at the stake as a result. Massaging the story by political communications...

    Stores on an Aircraft Carrier

    I remember my first steak I had in the Navy. I’m convinced it was 20 year old Holstein cow that was chased from Truo to Halifax before she was butchered. Or they just fried the sole of a seaboot. 😑

    Small Arms Trainer

    Once again our NRD had less than satisfactory results at our range weekend (which happens only once per year) so the discussion came up again about Small Arms Trainers (SAT). There used to be one that was shared between CFFS Esquimalt and the Western Region NRD's but as with many shared...
