Umm, guys. He had 7 threads started "Do Not Try This at Home"

warning:do not try this at home-part#7

Each one sounded more dangerous than the previous one.
It actually is good for any one that wants to go out on an ill prepared boat in an ill prepared manner. Just my opinion.

Thanks for that. Should give me something to do after I get done trying to navigate the inner workings of siriusXM's marine service.

Time seeks to bury us all. It is as inexorable as Gravity.

But I was merely being allusively playful with what Egyptian Arabs say about the pyramid complex at Giza. "Man fears Time, but Time fears the Pyramids."

It was indeed time, heh, for the thread to return to the OP and his fate.

Is Canada A Safe Haven For Terrorists? | PBS - Trail Of A Terrorist | FRONTLINE | PBS



I only have a problem with the perceived tone that LEOs are, therefore, all joining in order to impose themselves on others. I fully disagree, at least in the US. Most are joining to protect, not impose. There are bad apples everywhere, even on sailboats. I do agree that you can't do the job as an LEO, unless you are willing to impose. Just like you can't be a school teacher either. You must be willing to tell Johnny to sit in his seat and listen, whether he wants to or not. But, that's not why you took the job.
The 911 terrorists didn't need Canada, they got their training and everything else they needed in the US. Rassam could have easily crossed the border and acquired everything he needed to make his explosives ,in the US.
The US, with automatic weapons and military hardware so easily available, is a far safer haven for terrorists. What Uncle Sam is saying, when he calls Canada a "Safe haven for terrorists" is he doesn't want an example to how much more freedom and respect for human rights one can have, so close and easily accessible to Usanians, for fear they may end up demanding the same. He wants us to lower our standards to theirs, so theirs will be more readily accepted .

Laws governing Mounties ( commissioner's standing orders) and no doubt other police forces, make it illegal for a cop not to back up another cop, no matter how sleazy the other cop is being. Thus they make honest cops carry the dishonest ones like millstones on their backs, in terms of reduced public support and credibility.

"What Uncle Sam is saying, when he calls Canada a "Safe haven for terrorists" is he doesn't want an example to how much more freedom and"
Nonsense. Unless Canada has tightened up the borders, the reference to it being a safe haven for terrorists comes from the way Canada would allow anyone to walk off a plane and say "I'm a refugee!" and then let them go off and disappear.
That's got nothing to do with weapons or human rights. Whether someone is or isn't a genuine refugee and in fear of their life, you don't just let a stranger in with no ID check and no way to see where they fall off the radar.
Here in the US, we make them swim or hike through the open spaces, so they have to sneak in. No easy airline trips right into the big city.
Which isn't a whole lot more impressive, is it?

Re: rammed:by the customs & border patrol

Seems thousands of them have no problem swimming or crossing open spaces into the US every year. With the US having caused many a refugee problem in Central America by supporting mass murderous, genocidal regimes, it's high time they started paying for such crimes, in terms of supporting their innocent victims.
Refugees often don't have the option of having ID. The US is a state of the bureaucrats, for the bureaucrat, by the bureaucrats. No wonder they tell refugees "Kiss the ass of your bureaucrats, or die."
The US campaign of disinformation about our health care system was an example of how worried they are about having a better way of doing things on display, right next door, and how much money they are willing to spend to undermine it..

When Clinton tried to give you health care, a steady stream of ******** disinformation and anti public health care propaganda was put put out by your media, crossing the border in US media programing. They still fund advertising against the maintenance of our public health care system, with well paid for disinformation campaigns, and insisted on the extension of drug patent laws as a pre condition of NAFTA, which continue to undermine the affordability of our public health care system.

Re: rammed:by the customs & border patrol

So some nebulous claims about media and advertising and patent rights become an attack on your helathcare system? Um, no, Canadians include some big boys who can make up their own minds. And the major Canadian pharmaceutical houses can make all the drugs you need. Patent laws treat everyone the same, if you don't like the prices you have to pay for drugs owned by US pharmacies, either withdraw from the patent conventions, or spend your own money on other drugs. That's what everyone else has to do, that's not "undermining" anything in Canada.
Undermining would mean our government was literally attacking your healthcare system. that's what you said, that we're spending money on destroying your system. We could do that, we could easily send in people to set fire to your clinics, or buy out all the drugs from the pharmacy shelves. That would be undermining.
But complaining about international licensing terms and advertising? Put on the bigboy pants.

Re: rammed:by the customs & border patrol

Just like the US we have a lot of people gullible enough to buy the misinformation campaigns .You're an example of that. Public health care is dependent on public support. They wouldn't spend mega bucks on advertising if it didn't work.
Go change your diapers.
