    The topic is CANADA. And NOT Canadian Bacon!

    Yup, there's no denying that Trump is a pretty eloquent guy...

    I'm not talking substance of the policies. I'm talking about the ability to coherently deliver them -- i.e able to form complete sentences or a point. You and I are talking about different issues. It doesn't matter if Biden's policies are better than Trump, because that means nothing if Biden is incapable of expressing them coherently.

    Did you take a look at Trump's answer? There was neither policy nor coherency contained therein.

    Both will undoubtedly be given scripted answers to memorize prior to the debate. Trump's performance will depend on whether he sticks to the memorized script or goes off the cuff. Biden won't be able to remember anything. And if it gets personal and hostile (and there's no reason to think it won't because that's Trump's style) like it did during the Hillary/Trump debate or the Trump/Bush debate, Biden will become even more agitated and confused. All in all, I firmly believe it will a national embarrassment to our country if that debate happens.

    That dialogue was painful to read. Quite often now I hit the MUTE button on my TV remote when Trump is delivering unscripted comments on whatever topic has tickled his fancy that day, since listening to him ramble causes me physical pain.

    To paraphrase something I once read on the web... I was born in Saskatchewan, I love Saskatchewan, and if necessary I would willingly die for Saskatchewan, but what no one can make me do is LIVE in Saskatchewan. Although I'm forced to admit that Saskatoon is probably a nicer city than Edmonton.
    Sweet!

    Born in Weyburn myself, Mom's from Redvers and Dad's from Trossachs, and spent all but a few months of my life in Southeastern Saskatchewan. Currently in Moose Jaw, originally for Bible College but I decided I liked it here.

    I can understand why you decided to move. It would be hard for a country boy to return to Trossachs or Redvers, once they've experienced the big city life in Moose Jaw.

    From roughly 1965 to 1972, our family summer vacation was always spent at Kenosee Lake, so obviously I spent a lot of time in your neck of the woods. I have vague memories of Weyburn, but since we had no close relatives living there we probably didn't do much more than stop there for gas or snacks. I have some relatives who were raised in Radville, but I never made it there myself. I do remember going to Estevan a few times to visit relatives.

    I had and still have a lot of relatives in Moose Jaw and Regina, but the last time I made it out that way was around 1983. I have one Great Aunt in Moose Jaw, still alive and kicking at the age of 95 or so, who is a rabid Trump supporter (basically, she supports him for religious reasons; me and my relatives are mostly Lutheran, but my aunt belongs to a small branch of the family who remained loyal to my family's Pentecostal roots, and as I understand it my aunt's "sect" (for lack of a better term) places great religious significance on the election of Trump, especially after he moved the embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem.).

    Admit it. Somewhere in your possessions there is a photo of you standing in front of the pumps at the Corner Gas gas station in Rouleau. Sadly, I must admit that I'm jealous of you, and wish that I, too, owned a similar photo. I pity all the members of this forum who have absolutely no idea what I am talking about...

    In an only barely-relevant response, the nice thing about this forum is that nuanced conversation is actually possible here. Glad I made the switch, and I think you'll appreciate Reepicheep; we come from opposite sides of the theological fence, but I've always found him to be reasonable if not entirely agreeable.
