    Hahaha. ...this is true.
    However, I don't consider selling some hash to be at all shady in and of itself.

    I swear I post enough on here that positions should not be falsely attributed to me.

    I know he's a goon.

    I just think picking the hash scab is a moralising joke that needs to die. There's enough from the past year alone to go on.


    Wow, nothing quite riles me up like the hypocrisy and life-ending foolishness that is the war on drugs. Except maybe football. Speaking of which, kick off at 8....BRB.

    This is true given who we're talking about. He just looks greasy.

    I'd just like to point out though, that drugs can be sourced from non-organised crime sources. At least the type of "organised crime" I'm assuming you all have in mind.
    There are very many "mom and pop" outfits providing all sorts of things (both healthier than and about as healthy as ETOH...alcohol). These are only organised crime insofar as they are organised enough to produce their products and the fact that said products are illegal.
    Maybe Doug's source was some farmer in Caledon.

    Quark is a lovable curmudgeon. He's too good for Ford.

    Plenty of other Ferengi who would do, I'm sure.

    I'm sure Zek is not busy since retiring from the Grand Nagus position. :D

    No, it didn't. They maintained the rating at AA-, just downgraded outlook to negative from stable.
    If this worries you, don't you worry.....drinking enough buck-a-beer swill will take your mind off it by replacing it with other, more pressing, concerns. Bonus: if you overdo it with the buck-a-beer and don't control your withdrawals you'll suffer brain damage resulting in episodic memory loss (so you can forget it) and a lack of impulse control (so you can keep hitting the buck-a-beer!). If you're truly lucky, the toxicity to your liver will finish you off before the dementia hits. Then, you'll never have to worry about our credit rating again! Thank God at least two of the most damaging drugs are legal. Though, if you throw in opiates and amphetamines, you just know the system cares.


    PS: This is a general statement not specifically aimed at Videodrome.

    It doesn't help that the PC's have no actual platform to solve these financial issues. Where will Doug find those efficiencies?

    By rolling up their sleeves, one presumes.

    More likely paying someone else to do the job and then using them when things FUBAR.

    He's going to rip 'em out of the ground with his bare hands. (while, simultaneously digging a grave for the Liberals and tunneling a subway to his family cottage.)

    I cut my sleeves off....I was rolling them up too much. If they think I'm going to a 40hr work week....oh hell no.

    Can a Premier issue pardons like Doug's idol, Donald Trump?

    There is no equivalent process in Canada at a head of government’s discretion. Not even the Prime Minister.
