Hey guys and gals,

We're running a, how should I say, pilot or beta version of our new Raptors Republic app. We haven't made it official as we're still trying to work out some bugs while improving the user interface. So, its not the final version so expect to see more changes over the next while.

Anyhow, please feel free to download. Available on both Android & iPhone. It's absolutely free.

Android: https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...rsrepublic.app

iOS: https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/the-...6946?ls=1&mt=8

If we could ask a favour though. We're welcoming feedback and suggestions on perhaps things you'd like to see. At the end of the day we're doing this for you guys by making everything here easier available for you the user. Please send your feedback (Regardless if its positive or negative) to raptorsrepublic@gmail.com.

Thanks in advance and we hope you guys enjoy the application.

    Just curious, any of the Canadians on here with the constant "Trump is the biggest threat ever to the Rule of Law and civil liberties" have any thoughts on what is happening in their own country? Bueller?

    First off, who here has said "Trump is the biggest threat ever to the Rule of Law and Civil liberties"? No one? Cool.

    With that out of the way, too many people still Drink and Drive, so I'm fine with creating an environment that makes it harder and makes those that may choose to, think otherwise.

    With that all said, I agree this is maybe a bit too much; but mostly, fuck people who drink and drive.

      Does Cali have an active fire break program? For example, the Fort Mac, AB forest fire from a few years ago could have been adverted had the government taken past close calls more seriously and cut a sufficient fire break to hinder the fires from spreading.
      For me, the odd thing about this from Trump is that I'm pretty sure the US Federal Government actually owns/manages the vast majority of Forests in California.

      But ya, I'm pretty sure they do use breaks around Residential areas, but I also recall stories of the Fire this summer jumping over 6 Lane Highways, and even Lakes, so I don't think Breaks are the be-all solution to the problem when you're dealing with like 80,000km2 of Forest. But I'm also the furthest thing from a Forest Expert ... so there's that. Lol

      • I don't really get the purpose of police coming to your house to test you - presumably the reason would usually be because you were involved in an accident? What happens if you just don't answer the door?

          Yep. It's largely a federal responsibility, which is why it's hilarious that Trump is tweeting about the state not doing its job.

            Insanity. Next they'll start coming to our house at dinner time and make sure we're not driving with that glass of wine nearby, and also better check and make sure we're smoking government marijuana

              So this case of a single overzealous individual police officer is scaring you guys into thinking Canada is all of a sudden becoming a police state? Guess you missed the institutionalized carding that has been going on for years. That policy doesn't generally affect affluent white Canadians, though, so maybe it's not as big a deal to some...

                  And I disagree with that policy as well. Just to confirm, though, I can put you down as being okay with the new policy of police being able to enter anyone's home at any time without reasonable cause to search their person by way of a breathalyzer?

                    That's pretty funny coming from Nancy fucking Pelosi who has made hundreds of millions of dollars by being a congresswoman. How much does that salary pay again?

                        Most of Nancy's assets are attributable to her husband. He's real estate mogul/venture capitalist. Nancy's net worth is $29M.

                          Wow.. only 30M net worth on a senior tenured civil servants take home of about 200K a year..

                          Thats some pretty shrewd investing on Nancy's part eh ?

                          Most folks don't get close enough to that figure that they could hit it with a 18" battleship gun.

                            • In some passing Canadian news....

                              The unelected and politically neutral teachers union in Ontario is taking the Ontario government to court over the issue of the content of the grammar school sex education curriculum.Its apparently a human rights abuse issue. Who would have thought that the UNELECTED teachers union had any semblance of legal jurisdiction over what the duly elected government currently sitting at Queens Park has put forward on the education file. A policy plank they ran on while somehow squeaking out a 76 seat majority government about 8 months ago ?
                              Now that judge Ed has been censured ... wonder which activist judge currently sitting on the bench wants to test the resolve of Queens Park on this one ?

                              Come early, bring popcorn and get a good seat as the Trudeau government stick handles and circumlelocutes its way around pushing wheelbarrows full of cash to autoworkers in Ontario as the GM cocksuckers in Detroit shutter the Oshawa assembly lines. Team Justin now gets to once again talk out both sides of their mouths while explaining to the oil patch citizens of the same country that the oil and gas industry difficulties are just different and overblown and to suck it up. Ah.. the ability to suck and blow in the same breath is a true federal liberal skill.

                              One last bit of news has PM Spicoli getting first hand experience dealing with a few of the 174,378 non elected but incredibly vocal Indian groups who can't agree that 2+2 =4. One group who says they represent the will of indigenous peoples in BC says OK and agrees to a gas pipeline.. yet lo and behold another group who claims to represent the same group of peoples says no we do not support this and you must stop !!! A casual observer might wonder why these people who have been elected to exactly nothing can hold up a contractually agreed to project.....but they do....

                              Go get'em Spicoli !!
