      Orphan Attachments   07/31/2018

      I have been doing some housekeeping lately and I've noticed that I had a lot of orphaned attachments. Attachments get orphaned when the PM or post is deleted without removing the attachment first. Deleting a PM or post does not delete the attachment and the file or image remain on the server. I'd like to ask all members to go through their attachments and delete any attachments you don't need anymore or those that have been orphaned. Where can I get a list of my attachments? Click on your display name in the upper right corner of the forums and pick "My Attachments" from the drop-down list. How can I tell an attachment is orphaned? If the PM has been deleted, you'll see a message like this in your attachment list: Unfortunately there is no message if the post has been deleted, so please check your old posts. We do purge old birthday threads every once in a while. Also some hosted projects have been shut down, so you may have orphaned attachments on one of those locations. Thanks!

NAFTA - The Battle Begins

Recommended Posts

Trump imposed tariffs on Canadian steel and aluminum today. He also imposed tariffs on the same products from Mexico and the EU.

Canada has responded dollar for dollar. I was really afraid that Trudeau would cave because quite frankly, he doesn't have the balls of his father. Here's the quote from the news tonight:

Quote

Canada responded by imposing dollar-for-dollar tariff "countermeasures" on up to $16.6 billion worth of U.S. imports in response to the American decision to make good on its threat of similar tariffs against Canadian-made steel and aluminum.

The tariffs, which apply to a long list of U.S. products that includes everything from flat-rolled steel to playing cards and felt-tipped pens, will go into effect July 1, said Foreign Affairs Minister Chrystia Freeland.

Source: CTV News

Apparently the tariffs will cover 100's of items. They said it also included beer kegs and booze. :lmao:

Europe and Mexico are also imposing tariffs in response. I think you can imagine what I think of Trump. :rolleyes:

Trump is a petulant child who expects to get his own way. I’m really sorry that we can’t play along... not. Btw, North Korea is playing him for a fool.

The thing is, North Korea's done this before.  Playing nice to get sanctions dropped.  This isn't the first time, and it isn't the last.  Except Trump isn't smart enough to play along.

Meanwhile, we've got an actual admitted rapist pedophile neo-nazi running for Congress in Virginia on a platform legalizing incestuous marriage, child pornography and "benevolent white supremacy."  Because the US is a goddamn trash fire right now and I'm not even 100% positive he'll lose.

Exactly. At least this time, North Korea isn't even promising to denuclearize.

I guess you can hope that people realize once is enough, although I'm still stunned that people continue to support Trump.

Ok, this is getting sadly funny. We’re going to put tariffs on cucumbers and gherkins from Wisconsin and Bourbon from Kentucky. Now none of this kicks in until July 1st, unlike Trump’s tariffs. The delay is intentional as Trump flip flops on his decisions. Canada has also filed a formal complaint with the World Trade Organization and NAFTA.

Our legal system is annoyingly lax about white collar crime, but we really nail bastards like him. We have a special task force for finding these creeps that is so good, other countries ask for their help. They’ve worked with American police forces on several occasions. Even having child pornography is a crime here.

Good God man!  This dude needs to be in jail, not office.  I will lose all respect for Charlottesville if he gets voted in.  I think he's just wasting his time.  Charlottesville doesn't need this kind of publicity after the white supremacist attacks a little while ago.  A sadly interesting read, however, Ama.

Pedophiles are the worst kind of criminal.  The prisoners even hate them.  I hear you don't want to go to prison if convicted of child raping or porn.

He hit the news here in Colorado a few years back, because that's where his daughter lives.  Lots of talking about parental rights and stuff.

No, he didn't get custody.

But yeah, it's not illegal to be a pedophile.  It is illegal to prey on children.  And as for raping his partner, since they're dead, he won't ever be charged.

And yet Corey Stewart won the Republican primary.  He was endorsed last year (for his gubernatorial run) by the guy who actually organized the Charlottesville white supremacist rally.  Even appeared with the asshole at a couple of that group's events.  And yes, Trump supports him.

How can you be a pedophile but not prey on children? :huh:

I am soooo tired of listening to Trump You have a petulant child as president. Seriously, all he does is whine. I just hit the mute button or change channels as soon as the news plays a clip of him. He’s managed to piss off a good portion of Europe in addition to Canada. Congrats dude, you’ve started world trade war. Fuckhead.

He's a turd bucket.  But, AB, it's not illegal to say (as far as I know) that you are sexually attracted to kids.   It is illegal to perform a sexual act with one, but not say you'd like to.  I believe rape fantasies have porn outlets, etc.  Rape is illegal; wanting to rape someone is not.  It's immoral, yes, for sure.  There's all kinds of shit out there.

I wonder though if anyone has even investigated him. Perhaps they have and didn’t find anything. You know the saying: where there’s smoke, there’s fire.

Back to the topic, Canada and several other countries have lodged complaints with the WTO. This thing is genuinely a world trade war now. Trump is hurting the US just as much as anybody else. Tariffs against China? They do undercut everybody, but the inconvenient truth (yes, stealing that) is that they can produce stuff much cheaper than anybody in North America. I like to buy travel clothes from a Canadian company called Tilly Endurables. They make everything in Canada and the stuff costs a fortune. I buy it anyway because it’s well made, fits properly and has unique features. I don’t like buying clothes made in China because they usually don’t fit, but sometimes I don’t have a choice.

Unfortunately, we live in a world where laws haven't quite caught up with technology.  There's still the general: "It's online, so it doesn't count!" way of dealing with things like threats and hate speech.  The UK is dealing with upskirt photos right now (in the US, Massachusetts made it a crime, while Texas said it was free speech.)  But that's a rant for a new thread.

And also back to the topic:  Trump had to claim bankruptcy on casinos.  CASINOS.  MULTIPLE CASINOS.  That takes a new level of incompetence.  His first casino was 3 BILLION in debt after only one year.  I'm not surprised that he doesn't know how money works, much less the global economy.

Finally:  I googled Tilly Endurables.  That's the most Canadian clothing I've ever seen.  It could only be more Canadian if there was an extra pocket for your maple syrup.
