I'm still trying to understand why Turkey thinks they should have EU membership.

Good question. Maybe if they split up the Western part could become a European Union nation. But they are not fit for it! They mass murder Kurds, they jail the most journalists in the world and they now shot down Russian fighter jets. Not a good member to have.

Ack! I keep forgetting about that. It's alright though. Once my plans for world domination fall into place things will change.

He's a kid that never should have been made Prime Minister. His father, Pierre Elliott Trudeau, was great man and one of the best leaders this country has ever had. Basically, he won because of his father's name and because people were sick and tired of Stephen Harper destroying this country. However Pretty Boy Justin ran his entire campaign largely on three things: Not being Harper, legalising marijuana and bringing 25,000 Syrian refugees to Canada. I couldn't care less whether pot is legalised or not although it is time it was decriminalised. However I am, and always will be opposed to bringing 25,000 culturally and morally incompatible foreigners to another country. Especially after reading an article on our national news site earlier this week that states "Syrians are eager to get jobs but agencies have told them there's no rush since they'll be getting welfare from the government to pay for everything for at least a year."

Excuse me? What? I firmly believe that until every single unemployed person her has a job, until every homeless Canadian has a roof over their head the borders need to be sealed. Period.

If they need aid, fine, give them food, send money overseas, give them arms to fight for their own country. If the West ran away from everything, if everyone had run to another country, say oh, 70 years or so ago, we'd all be speaking German right now. A generalisation sure but it illustrates a simple point.

The West should have never messed about in the Mid-East. That region, as long as people cling to the idiocy of fairy tales and centuries old religions, will never know peace and bringing those problems from one country to another solves nothing. I've met several people from the Mid-East. The only ones that "get it" are the atheists. The West needs to back out, seal the borders and let the Mid-East either sort itself out or blow itself up but the idiocy of religion has no place in a civilised, enlightened world. It's 2016. Humanity needs to move beyond fairy tales.

Oh yeah t hat is *i have potty mouth* up.

Sweden taken up to 100k, on top of the hundreds of thousand already in the country. They pretty much turned my city from a Scanian town to a Middle Eastern cultural mess. I lived in a multictulure block, it isn't anymore even if people say it is so now. No it isn't.

We got a socialist regime again after 8 years, if you can call it that. It is more like a Greens-Hippie-Anarchy creating regime. With no ideas and tax raising as the only thing. Oh, our what is it called, minister of international affairs? Is a wise arse anger both Saudi and Israel. Who do you want ot befriend you dipshit?

I think it all can be summed up that: the world is going to hell. Everywhere.

@majestic - Bite your tongue, boy.

@MERLANCE - No government leader every does everything they say they will so, while Trump could cause some damage there are also enough checks and balances to prevent him from completely trashing the USA.

Aww, come on. Admit it, it was funny. :p

Trump might not be able to damage the US domestically but there are foreign relations that will suffer if he really gets elected. Besides, I really don't want Trump being the vehicle to make Hillary (still rooting for Sanders but not sure if that will work out now) the next POTUS.

Ugh. Imagine Trump vs. Clinton. That's like deciding between crotch rot and leprosy. :cry:
