  1. The Religion/Spirituality Thread

    I get what you're saying, but faith can be so at the core of who someone is, it would be hard to not take it personally, no? Esp if comments are snide. Having said that, i dont think "load of bollocks" in itself is a mocking comment, its just what you believe and thats fine! Im not even religious, i just have tremendous respect for those who are, it impresses and humbles me that they have such faith. Ps. Robert Mitchum, and Steve McQueen are a load of bollocks..and so is a good fitting suit 😁
  2. The Religion/Spirituality Thread

    Debate is one thing, but mocking or deriding someone for following a particular faith or believing in some of the practices taught, is particularly despicable imo.
  3. General Chat / Random Musings

    Oh no. That is awful. I hope he recovers, and I hope you are doing ok too.
  4. US Politics/Elections Thread

    Oh heck ya, according to the author's criteria we could certainly be included in this. Especially the not taking care of our elder family members..but i don't think it's an issue of uncaring, as this guy implies, but rather just a product of today's society..most households have two full time working members..there simply isn't the time available to properly look after someone who requires round the clock care.. so most people go into a nursing home..speaking of which, the wait times to get into one are interminably long, so it is an incredible stressor for the family members trying to either find the funds for private care or finding the time away from work to do it themselves. In terms of healthcare, it's certainly not perfect here either. If your place of work does not have a health plan, which many don't, dental and other services are simply not covered. Prescription drugs are expensive. And further to that point, depending on what province you are in, that will determine what cancer drugs are actually available to you if you are sick. They are not equally available across the country. You could have a form of breast cancer that is treatable in Ontario, but not treatable in Nova Scotia. Wait times for specialists - sometimes months to even get an appointment for a consultation, let alone the months afterward waiting for your surgery. Mind you, that surgery is free, but hope you can survive the pain and otherwise while you wait. Not to mention, there are simply not enough doctors that take on new patients, and many people don't even have a family physician, but rely on walk-in clinics or hospital emergency rooms. So no, not perfect here either.
  5. 2018 Oscar Nominations

    Yes, very unfortunate timing. Oh well, if not this year, his time will certainly come.
  6. blacklisted politics 101

    Please don't lock the thread. It may not be to everyone's taste, and we may not subscribe to all of it, but it is certainly thought provoking, and not stuff a lot of us would normally find and read.. but if responses are needed, I hope "interesting" and "hmmm" will suffice
  7. 2018 Oscar Nominations

    Haven't seen any of them except for Get Out (why is this nominated??) but I hope Gary Oldman wins Best Actor, simply for every other role he has ever played. He is a master.

    @marlingrl03, you ok over there? Did that hit anywhere near you?
  9. I, Tonya (Movie)

    Haven't seen I, Tonya, but did watch Truth and Lies, the Tonya Harding story. This was intermixed with a sitdown interview with her, at the present time. All i can say is, whatever sympathy she gained by what was portrayed in the I, Tonya movie, she will have completely negated with this interview. Terrible, bitter, horrible woman. Has not matured or grown one iota.
  10. The Tea & Coffee Thread

    But of course For me, no coffee beats instant Nescafe. ya ya instant, I know, I know. 1 milk, 1 sugar. (I hope someone is reading this and remembers. ) I like baby shoot loose green tea leaves from Toronto's China Town, but you pretty much have to mortgage your house to get it! Full of health benefits though. But on a rainy Sunday afternoon, it's Bigelow's Earl Grey..the bags are wrapped in foil to retain freshness.
  11. But i love the "if Axl Rose thinks you're an asshole, you're as asshole" comment. *disclaimer, this is not a political opinion on Nunes or otherwise
  12. If That Ain't Country

    I don't love Volume 2 as much as Vol 1, but this one is top notch. I think its been posted but oh well, wine level 2
  13. The MyGNR Book Club

    Lord of the Flies! I read this when i was about 11, and it really frightened me, although i couldn't quite articulate why. Of course, i didn't know or understand the concept of mob mentality back then. It will be interesting to hear what people have to say about this book.
  14. GNR Women's Discussion - Part 2

    Ooookaaaay then.
  15. General Chat / Random Musings

    90% Actually, that's pretty good lol.
