  1. I learned more from this guy then I ever learned in school. Stoked to see him back!
  2. Oh found a pic of a few on someone's wall lit up:
  3. No idea, some signs have the hurry only 12 left 3 hour countdown, others have a 12 hour countdown and others have no countdown. Hard to tell really, but if you've ever wanted an LED sign for your home it's thought to beat 66% off. I'd say the quicker the better.
  4. Yeah me neither, but when I saw my payment went through shopify and the amounts didn't change nor was there fine print stating anything my concerns were relieved. Shopify wouldn't risk its reputation on a bad seller.
  5. Hey guys just came across this Facebook ad for free LED lights. All you pay is shipping for $25 they've got everything from sports, to bands, to tv shows. The payment goes through Shopify also. It's really cool. I bought 2 Canucks ones myself. if anyone's interested browse away: https://vintagily.com/search?type=product&q=Canucks
  6. Why the fuck did I leave the Dominican for this white stuff? Can I go back? Here's a photo you'll only see in Canada my friends: https://m.facebook.com/story.php?story_fbid=758022944345231&id=126545880826277
  7. Its a prerequisite to join the forums.
  8. Yeah CNN was only covering the "protests" when there was rioting. One of the biggest problems is now News companies are expected to profit instead of being a necessary loss to inform the public. I love both of them too. Really brilliant people. Van Jones really impressed me this campaign as did Ana Navarro. Honorary mention goes to Amanda Carpenter. Whenever they spoke it was pure poetry. Yeah Mccrory did a lot of damage that will take a long time to undo even if they manage to repeal it (unlikely until Democrats take control of both legislatures, which is minimum 4 years from now). I still don't understand the bathroom thing and how it was different from before though? There's multiple stalls in each bathroom as well as multiple urinals. Is there one that says gender neutral or everyone (we don't have target in Canada)? I think it's a positive to support a member of a minority that may face persecution, but that just makes you a liberal, not open minded. It's pretty much a pre-requisite to be a member of the left is to stand and fight for equality for everyone. I agree that definitely shouldn't be a pre-requisite for friendship, but only if those views aren't uttered or acted upon when it comes to civil rights. If a friend of mine tells me they don't support gay marriage then I won't be friends with them. If a friend of mine tells me islamists are terrorists I won't be friends with them. If one of my friends harasses another friend I won't be friends with them. Think whatever the hell you want to, but if you act or if you say things that denigrate or take away rights from anyone then that is a person I will no longer have a friendship with. These days it's more important to prove the other side wrong and want to start a fight rather then debate respectfully and listen to one another.
  9. Also what episode is the Black-ish one everyone keeps talking about? I want to watch it.
  10. Thank you for engaging me on this, I appreciate the conversation. For me personally all media companies have faults. Buzzfeed, Huffington Post and left leaning publications do too much "gossip" and useless articles much ado about nothing for eyeballs instead of laying out important issues And how they impact our lives. The right leaning media companies use fear and outright lies to try to cause us to not treat one another as human beings. Both deserve criticism. I am more then happy to read a right publication if it is truthful. It's not about view points, it's about validity of the article. I just want facts and find more often then not right leaning publications misrepresent or state a lie outright, so I tend to shy away from them as do most younger people. If the right leaning media didn't sensationalize everything and instead did what the Wall Street Journal does, I'm all ears. I value hearing various view points as that is the only way to come up with a solution for all. Maybe it's just the people you hang out with, because I love Ana Navarro and liberal places like DKOS have praised her for being a solid individual. The right is extremely lucky to have someone such as her advocating their view points. I think most of the left is in the same boat. We are more then happy to listen to someone who talks in facts, not hyperbole. We agree on this. I wrote a paragraph on this many pages ago. The actions and words spoken are what matter. If someone thinks a gay man should go to hell, but doesn't do anything to affect them in a negative way no one should care. However if one says so to a person that is when a line is crossed. I think you might have made a mistake there? Liberals are open minded because they accept gay marriage? The reason in my mind why people go to their corners is both sides think the other is lying. There's a large segment of the right that believes Obama is a Muslim for instance. Conservatives don't trust any MSM because it doesn't confirm what they want to believe. The target episode is a compromise, absolutely. I do want to point out though that transgendered people just want equality and a third bathroom is not that. Every minority group wants the same treatment as everyone else. They don't want special treatment. The question then becomes is it fair to make someone receive different treatment in society, because another is uncomfortable with who they are? People have been transgender for many decades. There's never been an, arrest, an assault or anything. The issue started to be a problem once conservatives wanted to force someone into going to a different washroom to rouse their base. They have no reason to fear for their safety when it's never been an issue. They had no idea for years until it was pointed out. Yes, both sides do it, that's why there's a right and a left. Democrats haven't stated that their number one goal is to make Trump a one term president (though obviously in politics that's the goal of every party out of power). They stated we will work with Trump on issues we agree on, but we will not accept any attempt to roll back rights for anyone. I don't really feel it's unreasonable for every person to have equal treatment and that is where the clash happens. Debate environmental policy, foreign policy, economic policy, energy policy, intelligence policy or anything you want to, that can be hashed out. The one thing the left will not accept and the one thing some of the right continue to try to do is rolling back equal rights for everyone. That is a hard line and again I don't really feel it to be unreasonable. We are all a part of the HUMAN race. We are all one and we all deserve equal treatment. Once someone tries to take away your rights it becomes that much harder to trust one another and have a dialogue with them. If conservatives dropped trying to put things back to when some people had less rights or no rights to pander to their base then politics would be solvable and issues could be fixed. Until that point however it will just be a never ending battle. Also I don't know how to spoiler tag, so sorry about the long read. EDIT: Just read the 3rd bathroom post. I take back that paragraph, though I'm curious as to how that was any different then before? Is one gender neutral?
