    All his photo ops with cops and soldiers are pretty bizarre. Putin on horseback energy.
    The guy pictured below makes Putin look lame. He just finished killing a grizzly with his words.
    Then he tamed this wild mustang armed only with a steely gaze and rode it to a photo op to apologize for something he didn't do or wasn't even alive to witness. Then he cried.

    Justin Trudeau, the Chuck Norris of the North.
    So tough he can piss his initials in concrete.

    I don't normally like a tank. But when I do I prefer a #TampaTank.

      When I saw this I got a chuckle from it and it reminds me of another pol who took more than his share of slings and arrows from the annointed.

      Progressive urban myths which have been passed down from generation to generation surround this one man, who when the stories are told in hushed tones, singlehandidly brought the teachers unions to their knees while simultaneously gutting public education in ways that it would never recover from his actions, brought fear to the good champagne socialists in North Toronto and the Beach and was the bogeyman that my friend Joey probably heard about when his parents or grandparents told him ghost stories at bedtime.

      Two words to this day still strike fear into Liberals from Kenora to Cornwall.
      Mike Harris.
      If you're going to talk about me, why not actually quote me?
      That said, I literally have no idea what you are even talking about ... as per usual. You probably thought it was hilarious though, so there's that.

        We have exchanged many posts in this thread over the past months and perhaps I jumped to the conclusion you were in the centre left swim lane and had heard of the golf pro from North Bay who was a few lanes over to the right .

        Didn't mean to offend ...

        It is hilarious by the way.

          Oof, ya sorry, had a long day in the "office", probably a bit of a harsher tone than I would have liked .. stupid working from home. No offense taken .. though I'm still not entirely sure what you're still going on about. You are still talking about Mike Harris? I think my parents actually voted for him .. Lol But yes, I will accept a "Center Left" designation. Close enough.

          • I heard an analogy the other day that seemed perfect.

            Donald Trump is James Dolan and the United States is the New York Knicks. A big huge dumpster fire of an organization/country run by a complete clown show that has no charm or charisma.

            Justin Trudeau is Bryan Colangelo and Canada is the Colangelo lead Toronto Raptors. Trudeau like Colangelo just wants to be liked and is more worried about his reputation (please like my trade, please like my policies) as opposed to actually being good at their jobs. Canada like those Raptors are not really relevant around the world but have a huge fan base locally. I wouldn't be surprised if Trudeau or his wife had a burner phone either. Also both got into their respective fields due to nepotism.

              • Of all the literally Orwellian stuff going on right now (tearing down statues, cancelling shows, removing movies from sites, burning down book stores, people kneeling to others on the basis of their respective races) this story might actually be the most disturbing and it isn't getting much play. This is what regimes like the Soviets did. Bendit, Jimmie, Joey: 1984 wasn't a how-to guide!!!

                  Man, you guys really can't keep my name out of your posts. I must be renting space in your heads for free!
                  Don't worry, eventually you'll come up with a good argument. Until then, keep your head up.

                    Lol ... going around the bend are you? Paradoxically my hero George O. an avowed democratic socialist who was an amazing scribe and used words to put the boot to all forms of totalitarianism ... you have either misplaced the use of the term "Orwellian" or do not understand what is really going on.
                    Another term comes to mind which you are most familiar with ... "New Rules" !!

                    Wear your mask.

                      Wear my mask? Sorry, pandemic is over.

                      Keep on defending the book burning and having bun fights over colloquialisms. Your "hero" would be proud.

                        Western Liberalism has died and has been replaced by activism.

                          Mask wearing is Kardashian level groupthink.

                          I have been out and about in heart of Toronto along King West and Queen West for a couple of weeks just walking around. The ratio of non mask wearers to mask wearers is about 50:1. Either there are no masks to be had or the rank and file is singularly unconcerned.

                          Wear one or not... Its your choice.

                          The empirical vote seems to be no.

                            Please show where I "defended" book burnings. When no substantive response... lie. Like this:

                            • Bendit, a cautionary tale....

                              WASHINGTON—Growing increasingly unhinged after reading that the president’s favorability numbers were plunging, strait-jacketed opinion columnist Gail Collins repeated to herself that “Trump is finally done” while babbling to a cup of applesauce, sources confirmed Tuesday. “The Republicans are at last abandoning him, yes they are, yes they are, yes they are,” said the deranged, heavily sweating op-ed writer as she rocked back and forth, laughing maniacally while noting that Trump had “proven his clear unfitness for office, don’t you think, Richard?” to a snack-sized serving of Mott’s unsweetened applesauce. “The American people have finally seen through his charade ticky ticky ticky ticky! We all go down. And a barrel of rum and a yo-ho-ho! Is this the end for Trump? My column, below.” At press time, orderlies had been forced to tranquilize Collins, who after she accidentally saw a poll showing Trump’s approval rating edging back up, drew blood while repeatedly banging her head into a concrete wall.
