Assault is a reach and too far. It was just rude. You asked your question it may or may not get answered. After you've had your turn pass the mic. Someone never learned to share. Puff puff give mf'er.

Political perception? Mildly. But say if Hannity did this, or better example is Tucker, since I despise Hannity, Iíd denounce his actions and more than likely stop giving him my viewership and tell others too so hopefully heíd get fired.

This is a huge issue being discussed around our office and others as well here. We even tried a few tests out how much force might have been used to bend her elbow like that. It was just so unnecessary for Accosta to do that to the young girl, because he thinks heís above the law and wants to look like the CNN anti-Trump champion.
For those claiming Acosta assaulted her that was not assault. I donít like Acosta but my wife hits me harder for snoring too loud.

I also did not think it was assault, but he lied through his teeth when he said he did not touch her at all. I seem to remember back when Obama was the POTUS, at one of his news conferences when someone kept trying to question him and he kept telling them to shut up and finally had security throw the person out, the whole press corp was shouting "OBAMA OBAMA OBAMA"". The guy was called first, got 3 questions and then kept trying to ask more even after he got an answer and would not STFU or give up the mike. Almost to a T what Acosta did. Of course they loved Barak and hate Trump

The left would call that assault if that was one of their own. So I’m calling it assault. Seems fair

A journalist is a person who collects, writes, or distributes news or other current information to the public.

Acosta is a joke who only wants attention for himself, he wants to be the story rather than report it. He is more concerned with confrontation, being argumentative and wanting to debate than being a journalist, f-ing clown.

And CNN supports it, of course. CNN is like MTV, Music television that never shows music.

Assault is a huge stretch and getting over used.......

You think he would have acted in the same manner if a 6'4" security guard was reaching for that mic?

I posted Vancouver real estate prices in the bitcoin thread. When the TV series Continuum opened in 2012, a nice Vancouver condo was $1 million. At the end of the show in 2016, condos were $1.6 million.

There is substantial evidence that the money is dirty money from rich Chinese people. It is laundered through casinos.

AK, perfect example is this. Here’s a house in a not so nice area in my city: $499,999

https://www.remax.ca/on/hamilton-rea...d217661169-lst

Anyway. All we got going for us is the Leafs winning the Cup and Raptors winning the championship this season.

Dont be so hard on yourself. You and Canada have so much more like great beer (love Canadian beer). I’m with you on the Leafs (not so much the Raptors).

But you can keep that fucking Bieber.

If Florida and Georgia recounts flip the razor-thin wins for Governor to Dem, Alabama will be next. Prices are dirt cheap except for the big cities like Auburn. I moved out to a rural setting a long time ago.

Raw land about $3,000-$5000/acre if 40 acres or more.

this is a gambling site, not an American site, so when they tell you to worry about your country, not theirs, tell them to fuck off. They are also the ones who are always telling us on here how much better other countries are doing things as opposed to us. you got just as much right to comment as anyone else. Their opinion is theirs, same as assholes, everyone has one.

I saw someone complain yesterday "Trump only hired Whitaker because he'll do what he's told!"

Of course, this begs the reply, "Yeah! Right on! Most employers seek hirees who don't do what they're told."

As always in these situations, I passed on replying. The sarcasm would sail over his head. And if something that basic, that "common sense" has to be explained, he wouldn't get it anyway. Probably just call me a racist and try to dox me.

And their pike. LOVE hookin' into a pike.

Mr. NASCAR.
I been called all those names when I do not agree with the lefts view. They have no intention of talking to you, just shutting you up. They want no argument with their views, because they are so much better and so much more compassionate and their views are the only ones that carry any weight, than you because you do not agree to do exactly as they tell you. Personally I have decided to not worry one second about what they call me. I used to have liberal friends and some of them would actually talk to you about issues. Sometimes we would agree and sometime agree not to agree.
That shit is gone. If you do not conform to their views, name calling begins.

Thanks, tigerbait. Something said online here isnít going to get under my skin, and hopefully no one elseís. Like you said, just opinions. If Canadians werenít welcome here, then Iím sure Jack and the mods would take action against us.

I might disagree with a lot of liberals and their view points, as the rest of us do, just as they do with us. But truthfully, our countries are very lucky to allow the right of voting of two/three very different political parties. Iíd never hate or not be ok/friends with someone just because they align with the opposite aisle. Thatís just completely childish and asinine. Weíre not mutes, we have voices, and we can have great debates or discussions, maybe even get verbally heated. End of the day, both sides of the aisle helped build our countries to what they are today. Some people forget how lucky we have it compared to others countries. Even if you hate Trump and his policies, he has term limits. Eventually his presidency HAS to come to an end. In Canada, Trudeau could be Prime Minister for the rest of his life, and more than likely will be re-elected for a long, long time. I donít like him as a person or as a prime minister, but I would never wish harm on him, especially his wife and young kids. They didnít ask for the life, they just support the dreams of their husband and father. Much like Melania and Barron. Too many people since social media blew up and online validation/acceptance became almost socially necessary, physical threats and actual violence has skyrocketed, especially in the Trump era.

I used to love pike fishing. They are as dumb as fish come. About 90% are harvested at age 1.5 years in Wisconsin. FYI; the best Muskie and northern pike fishing is the two days before the new moon.
