Unable to get insurance due to a pre-existing condition. Corporations really are people.

I'm a gun guy. Grew up with them, still hit the range at least once a week, was even partial owner of a machine shop that specialized in firearm parts.

I've been around those yahoos enough to tell you with no amount of uncertainty: the NRA has almost nothing to do with the individual rights of the gun owner and everything to do with making sure the manufacturers can sell as many as possible.

While I believe that the 2nd amendment rights of the individual should be maintained, the NRA is the last group I would trust to do so.

I noticed that too. The author of that piece had to be sitting in a litterbox with that much pussyfooting around.

Allegedly seemed to be pussyfooting around, sources say.

I'm no conspiracy theorist but this sounds like a bullshit claim to drive member donation. NRA is hella loaded the last time I heard.

And if Russian money dried up, and now they need expensive lawyers due to treason?

Or wipe the whole slate clean to erase russian money and collaboration with the enemy.

Some wire headlines crossing on Saudi Arabia / Canada relations

Saudi Arabia has frozen all new trade and investment with Canada
Saudi Arabia recalls ambassador to Canada for consultation
Saudi Arabia says Canadian envoy in Riyadh is unwelcome

news coming via the Saudi Press Agency

At the very least I expect we'll see some kneejerk CAD selling on the headlines. Keep in mind liquidity is still very thin indeed. its just gone 7am in Tokyo so not a lot of bottoms on seats there yet. Singapore and HK its only just after 6.

Reason is this statement by Canadian embassy in Saudi.

Canada is deeply concerned about the additional arrests of civil society activists and women's rights activists in #السعودية [Saudi Arabia], including #سمر_بدوي [Samar Badawi]. We urge the Saudi authorities to release them immediately and all other peaceful activists in the field
