    Obama immigrants threaten to break the backs of immigration courts. No doubt the answer Democrats will propose is blanket amnesty.

    And from the “I TOLD YOU SO” department:

    I told you that obamacare and efforts to drive up the minimum wage would result in THE LOSS of jobs to automation:

    http://www.marketwatch.com/story/the-robots-are-coming-for-jobs-that-pay-20-an-hour-or-less-white-house-finds-2016-02-22

    And even Obama’s goons are admitting it!

    Plus another “I TOLD YOU SO” moment:

    I told you that raising the minimum wage would COST jobs and the remaining workers would just be expected to be more productive:

    Seattle’s new Minimum Wage law is increasing unemployment.

    Looks like not all Canadians aren’t falling for the farce that is Catastrophic Anthropogenic Climate Change Alarmism either:

    http://www.cbc.ca/news/canada/montreal/climate-change-yale-project-montreal-study-1.3458142

    39 per cent don’t believe it is caused by human activity.

    But the bad news is 44% are complete idiots: 44% of Canadians surveyed believe Earth is getting warmer mostly because of human activities.

    And another 17% (for a total of 61%) are garden variety idiots: 61% believe Earth is getting warmer partly or mostly because of human activities. Note how they present it as a sum to make it seem like it’s a bigger number?

    The study found that:

    “Urban dwellers are more progressive [i.e. ignorant & gullible] in general”

    And at the very bottom, if you’re not a brain-dead liberal and make it that far, they state:

    The study has a margin of error of six percentage points for provincial findings and seven percentage points for local findings, 19 times out of 20.

    Yeah, but that 20th time the study has no statistical significance.

    And also note what was originally reported (see the ‘clarification’):

    An earlier version of this article said that a majority of Canadians surveyed didn’t believe that climate change was caused by humans.

    hmmmm.

    Trudeau will stop all climate warming and cooling. The Earth’s temperature will once again be just right. The amazing part is that he will do it thru taxing and spending. Isn’t that great?

    Obama is a gangster, he isn’t a true believer. He doesn’t give a shit about CAGW. Trudeau is genuinely stupid enough to think he can dictate the remedy to the fake problem.

  16. Bodhisattva says:

    All true, but nonetheless, Obama was said to be able to stop the rising, globull-warming driven, tides with merely a wave of his almighty hand.

    Yeah, Obama is interested in taxing and spending so much that nobody notices the billions going into the pockets of those rigging elections for him & other Democrats. Climate change? The least of his worries.

    He’s more worried one of his illegitimate sons will wind up the next mass shooter I suspect.

    LOOK – a great example of ‘white guilt’, lib-tard style:

    https://disqus.com/by/ofCanada/

    POSTS IN SEQUENCE THEY OCCURRED:

    In response to this by “ofCanada”:

    This is not the example you want to use. In the earliest days of America, “the people” you’re referring to were the illegal immigrants and the “standing ground” they did was invading—often with horrific violence toward the people of this continent.

    I posted the following:

    Your post has several blatantly false statements:

    1) “the people” you’re referring to were the illegal immigrants – No, there were no immigration laws so they were not violating any immigration laws, as illegal immigrants do routinely violate American immigration laws that DO exist today.

    2) the “standing ground” they did was invading – No, they were not invading, they had lived here peacefully in many instances and were attacked by people who chose to continue living as primitive savages, often attacking each other in barbarous fashion and murdering, raping, pillaging then making slaves of those they allowed to live.

    3) often with horrific violence toward the people of this continent – Actually though they did not know it, the Europeans brought bacteria with them that they didn’t realize would be responsible for much of the death that did occur among those people who’s ancestors had immigrated here earlier and had thus never been exposed to them and had no immunity.

    Now there are some exceptions to the above – the Spanish were here basically to rape, kill and plunder at times it would seem. They wanted power and influence and pretty much would do whatever it took to get it. Not so much some of the truly religious, such as many of those who settled the original American colonies here in what is now the U.S.

    And I’m not saying there weren’t some bad apples here – there were. As there were in Canada, too. Now I happen to have “good” relatives – one a Canadian hero who lived in (and was in fact the Mayor of) a small town near Winnipeg AND I also have in my family tree one of the original and most staunch anti-slavery activists in the early New England colonies, who actually wound up debating and signing our Declaration of Independence.

    To which he responded:

    ofCanada Bodhisattva • 21 hours ago

    Everything you did post, pretending white European settlers of NA were heroic except for a few bad apples and everybody else from the Spaniards to First Nations People were horrible?

    That’s called whitewashing.

    It was an invasion. We took this contentment from the people who lived here. Refusing to take responsibility for that doesn’t make the facts go away.

    And of course I said nothing of the sort.

    And their tactic is to make a response like that then quickly shut down further comments – they’ve done it repeatedly now.

    Plus we did not invade. There was plenty of land for all, but there were also inevitable conflicts, not necessarily started just by either side – both did wrong. But the biggest killer of the falsely named “native people” was not deliberate violence, but rather unknown microbes that killed off great numbers due to their immune systems not recognizing them.

    Good example of why the left can’t tolerate opposing positions in Universities and High Schools, or the internet for that matter. The American left want schools, media, courts, and the government to be echo chambers that support what they believe and how they conduct themselves, which is often filthy, disgusting and irresponsible.
