Dianne Feinstein Admits Gun Control Doesn’t Work, Introduces Gun Control Bill Anyways

Here’s how things work on the left: following a mass shooting liberals demand gun control laws that wouldn’t have stopped the tragedy while citing the shooting as a need for these ineffective restrictions. What they never do is admit that their knee-jerk “solutions” are completely pointless in stopping crime, but all of that changed on Sunday. In a stunning admission, Dianne “gun grabber” Feinstein said that no gun law current or proposed would have stopped Las Vegas shooter Stephen Paddock from killing 58 and wounding 500 more. Don’t worry, she’s still pushing gun control legislation anyways, because that’s what liberals do.

Expert handling technique, too.


Nothing ‘fair’ about Wynne’s minimum wage hikes

Since Premier Kathleen Wynne says her 31.6% hike to Ontario’s minimum wage is all about “fairness” — which will also be the theme of her June re-election campaign — we have to ask: Fairness to whom?

Estimates of the number of job losses that will result from Wynne increasing the minimum wage from $11.40 per hour to $15 per hour in 15 months, range from at least 50,000 (Financial Accountability Office of Ontario) to 90,000 by 2020 (TD Bank) to 185,000 over two years (Keep Ontario Working Coalition.

These estimates (including new jobs that will never be created in addition to existing jobs that will be lost) are based on the logical assumption that when a business’ expenses go up, it must either cut costs or increase profits to survive.


Updated list: Sweden’s vulnerable areas

Particularly vulnerable area (23) – characterized by a social problem and criminal presence that led to a widespread inconvenience to participate in the judicial process and difficulties for the police to fulfill its mission. The situation is considered acute.

Deferred area (32) – is geographically defined and characterized by a low socioeconomic status where the criminals have an impact on the local community. Impact is rather linked to the social context in the area than the criminals’ graduated will to take power and control the local community. The situation is considered serious.

Risk area (6) – characterized by the risk of becoming a particularly vulnerable area. Some or some of the set criteria are missing. The situation is considered alarming.

A meaning of ‘vulnerable’ with which I am not familiar.


Wilders video banned by Youtube: “We Must De-Islamize the West”

In the video Geert Wilders shows that the Prophet Mohammed should be considered a terrorist, mass murderer and a pedophile and that it is very dangerous that this man is rolemodel to 1 billion Muslims.

Geert Wilders: It is an outrage that the freedom of speech is sacrificed because of expressing the truth. It must always be permitted to express the truth even when it concerns a deranged prophet. Fortunately the video is still available on Twitter and Facebook.”


NATIONAL UNITY RISK: Trudeau Is Dangerously Dividing Canada For His Own Political Benefit

Canada lacks a unified industrial policy. Such a policy would be based on strengthening industry across Canada, including the energy industry in the west, manufacturing in Ontario, and the aerospace industry (including Bombardier), in Quebec.

A strong industrial policy would mean eliminating regulations and taxes that hurt the energy industry, bringing in strategic tariffs to protect and grow manufacturing jobs, and yes, sometimes it would mean providing support to Bombardier to protect Canadian jobs.

This would bring Canadians together and strengthen national unity, because it would show that all parts of the country mattered equally to the government, and our government was committed to making sure that all Canadians could succeed.


Happy Thanksgiving everyone!

    Turkey and USA have celebrated Thanksgiving. They have become embroiled in a consular row, mutually suspending most visa services.

    Fear not – immigrant visas are unaffected.

      Oh dang, I was hoping that they would be the first to go!

    Did anyone bother to document their Canadian thanksgiving day meal?
    I’m curious in what ways it’s different from ours.
    Did green bean casserole ever make it past the 49th parallel?
    Do you Canadians just go bananas and have 10,000 kCal meal days?
    I’m really interested in this.

    • In my case, since family is out of the picture, I haven’t celebrated Thanksgiving, Christmas, etc. for many years. I used to celebrate alone for a number of years just to “keep the spirit alive” — to maintain that ray of hope for the future, or at least bask in the good memories.

      Not anymore — Official feminism has succeeded in destroying the concept of family in Canada (at least in my case). So in answer to your question, the following was my “Canadian Thanksgiving dinner”: half of a leftover pepperoni pizza from the day before, with a bag potato chips and homemade mayo dip. And a glass of milk. I honestly didn’t realize it was thanksgiving again until I read about it here on BCF.

        Sorry to hear that though it sounds pretty similar to my own experience, in fact. In my case, though, I’m having my Delissio pizza fresh today (bacon cheeseburger) and not leftover! I also have some cherry ice cream – so I’m a happy camper. 🙂

        • Maybe I’ll join you (at least in spirit). I know I can do better than Dr. Oetker’s “Giuseppe Pizzeria” from my local pharmacy…

        • Sharkibark

          K2 & ricardojaime: I am making this offer very sincerely and mean it! If you can get to Meaford, Ontario next thanksgiving you both would be welcome at my table. We weren’t blessed with children and don’t have close family and we join with like minded friends for a night of food and companionship. Feel free to PM me if you want to take me up on it. We believe the more the merrier! 🙂

      • Don’t let @$$holes destroy holidays for you. Holidays are more than eating candy with family. They stand for something important.

      We had wild turkey that I shot out back. We have fresh Mennonite bread, potato/wild leek soup, mashed potatoes, corn, pumpkin pie, and some dandelion wine.

    • canminuteman

      There are only four of us, and we are not entertaining any guests so there is no requirement for a turkey. We will be having a roast chicken with stuffing and cranberry sauce with sweet potatoes and some other as yet undetermined vegetable. We are not big desert eaters in this house so that will be about it. I like to cook, and am pretty good at it, but I have been renovating the kitchen and it is still too chaotic for me to feel like cooking in it.

      very similar..warmer in October
      why all the travel in the US?..then travel again at Christmas
      airports jammed
      rather have turkey than steak

    • Sharkibark

      Our family tradition is Prime Rib on Thanksgiving, Roast Turkey is for Christmas (except when smoking turkey on the Weber it in the summertime.) We had Prime Rib, roast sweet & yukon potatoes, turnip, green beans with toasted almonds, buttered beets, yorkshire pudding and gravy. Lemon Meringue & Pumpkin pies for desert.

    • Exile1981

      turkey, stuffing, mashed potatoes, yams with marshmallows, roast bunny, peas, pumpkin pie and pecan pie.

      The teens were compeating for most food consumed, though the 10 year old gave them a run for their money.

    • This will be a very calorie-rich meal. I couldn’t possibly eat like this every week.

    The Toronto Star this morning is upset about a Syrian refugee family, whose house burned down. Because apparently house fires only occur with Syrian families. And they are promoting the UN outrage about how illegal aliens are treated in Canadian detention. Perhaps little Justin can book them rooms at the Royal York, until they get an apology and compensation.

    If all the $15 an hour minimum wage workers worked like this guy I am sure nobody would protest their wage hike:

    • Try working like that in a Unionized environment. The Union “bulls” will arrange a little “accident”.

        I filled in a couple times at Canada Post’s plant for Christmas help as a teenager.

        They kept moving me around the plant.

        Then I realized later it was because I didn’t want to be a slacker and lose the job so I was moving much faster than the old regulars.

    Netherlands anti-Wilders coalition government formed after 208 days.
    The government will have a majority of one seat in the lower house.
    That’s stable isn’t it?

    Roast beef and roasted vegetables (1 pot) for Thanksgiving.

    Diversity is so enriching
    Mourners that carry weapons and bulletproof vests have been seen at several funerals in Malmö. The cemetery administration is now training employees to “handle” funerals with armed guests in “the new Sweden”.

      Traitorous swedish politicians should look to history on how Mussolini, and Ceaușescu faired when they finally pissed their people off.

  • Merry Thanksgiving Day!
