  1. Hey BD don't forget that Zarqawi had nothing to do with Al Qaeda.
  2. This Andrew guy reminds me of a confused family member who after the London bombings said "I feel sorry for the Muslims in London". Uncle Andy is that you?? I suggest switching from Chomsky to Kaplan. Try Warrior Politics: Why Leadership Demands a Pagan Ethos.
  3. I read something similar to this last year. I was quite surprised at the ranking. It is also quite surprising how this myth (Canada being a nation of peacekeepers) is ingrained in the average Canadian. Visiting my parents in Europe last year, they were entertaining guests and the discussion evolved into international politics. The subject specifically turned to peackkeeping and my old man claimed that Canada ranked no less than the top three in peace keeping nations. He could not accept my assertion that Canada is nowhere near the top three. This would simply go against everything he has been
  4. Interesting the differences between the way liberals think and conservatives think. Bob Rae's answer to the terrorism issue is to run away. They still actually believe that if the terrorists think we're nice they won't hurt us. Excellent article in the L.A. Times today: Canada Nice
  5. It will certainly be blamed on us being in Afganistan and somehow on the Conservatives being in power. Perhaps they'll blame Bush somehow LOL. I can't help but wonder what kind of reaction Mr. Dithers would've had were he still in power. They'd probably play it down so as not to lose votes in the GTA. Remember we had to kick the Liberals out to get the Tamil Tigers terror group outlawed. You see we need to be tolerant of these people and seek to understand their feelings . I wonder how long they'll serve in prison? It'd be great if we could somehow find a way to deport them to the U
  6. I completely agree. The definition of being progressive seems to be little by little taking away accountability from individuals. We getting very good at blaming the victims as well. I still don't understand who and how they decided that 15 years was enough for a max. I don't even want to start on the minimums.
  7. I agree with this: blaming the judges for bad laws is unfair to the judges. In my opinion, the crime of raping a child is much worse than the planned killing of a gang member by another gang member. There are many other crimes which I feel are under punished because the victim is still technically alive. Yes but the Judges still have discretion to impose the maximum of 15 years (even though it's not even close to enough). I don't believe that their hands were tied. I wouldn't mind that but then you get people feeling sorry for the poor pedophile, like the ones who were tracked and killed
  8. The explanation was in the story, they said that they have seen worse, so the maximum sentence was 'inequitable'. BS, I say. Though I am a 'leftist', the death penalty is too good for this person. However, I do believe that this would have been a better fit in the 'moral and religious' forum. Unless you want to argue it from a justice/legal perspective. Always good to be back, though I can't stay... too busy lately. I don't buy the judicial explanation. Does it mean that since of all the murders committed in Canada no one can recieve the maximum sentence because none of them are as heino
  9. Every so often I question my allegiance to the right a bit when I think about how I feel about certain issues and when I get turned off from some of the radicals we have on our side. But it never fails that shortly after some of these doubts start creeping into my mind the liberal left always manages to remind me why I want nothing to do with their way of thinking. Can one of you leftists explain to me the kind of liberal Canadian thinking that would justify reducing a 15 year sentence, to a cushy Canadian prison, for raping a baby for two years!? I'll take our evangelicals any day over
  10. I hope Ralph finally gets the message. Ralphs departure is already long overdue. I have to agree with Black Dog's comments a long while back comparing the Alberta Tories to the Chretien Liberals. The PC's have had too much power for too long and need to be humbled. Klein has been acting like a dictator. I supported Klein for a long time but he should've left a long time ago. I don't care what party it is that holds power this country needs to have more balance and people here need to quit being so complacent. As for the comments about Ralphs drinking, I think it's fair game to attack
  11. Isn't it interesting how willing these activists were to accept the help of the evil "occupiers" that they were there protesting against? Isn't it also interesting that there are Canadian soldiers.... in Iraq..... with guns...
  12. Relevance of course, being determined by whether or not they agree with your politics. Then again, I'm sure liberal Hollywood is hurt by your disdain, so much that George Clooney is probably crying himself to sleep on his bed of money right now. Ya isn't that why everyone goes to the movies, to be preached to by limousine liberals like Clooney. I love that stuff about terrorists being the victims being shoved down my throat. After all we do know these Hollywood guys are "the experts" on everything. I'm sure you just loved Tom Cruise's rant on psychology... And ya political Hollywood
  13. If you cared to read the forum rules, you'd see that insulting entire groups of people based on your narrow stereotypes is explicitly prohibited. But more to the point, I don't see why you insist on throwing out these pointless and inflammatory comments constantly.
  14. With respect to today, I can say that if this is a forshadowing of things to come we're going to see a real revival within the circles of grassroots reformer types.
  15. I said that eh? Ya well I still think she is and I think Emerson is too. If I was a voter in his riding I'd be livid.
  16. The MP should be required to sit as an independent or be required to call a by-election.
  17. Me too, very disappointed, in this instance we are no better than the liberals. There should be a by-election immediately or he should sit as an independant. I agree. This completely stinks. No matter how they spin it, it is hypocrisy plain and simple. I am not happy.
  18. Don't forget that it was Canwest's dumba$$ Kevin Newman who felt he needed to bring up abortion 3 days before the election because I guess he felt Harper hasn't said it enough that he doesn't plan on pursuing the issue.
  19. No it's been clouding your judgement. Ever since the CPC made the big jump in the polls you haven't been your rational bitter self I think all that Alberta blue has you seeing nothing but red. Said Mr. Clinton to Mr. Jennings....
  20. That's because you're allowed to change your opinions at politically when it is politically expedient even if it is within 5 years... unless you are conservative then statements you made 30 years ago will be brought up again, and again, and again by the leftist media...
  21. I was surprised to see that the world didn't end on Tues. morning. I was expecting to be greeted by soldiers with guns in the streets and US flags flying on all the govt. buildings. BTW did anyone catch the vitriolic responses of Rosie O'Donell and Michael Moore to the win.... Gotta love the "tolerant" left.
  22. You are truly losing it BD. Obviously this conservative win has left you even more bitter than you were before. There you go again, trying to win an argument by shifting the debate to some trivial point...
  23. Hey I said count to 10 before replying. Yes Nora Jacobson, a liberal American who fled to "tolerant" Canada after Bush won, says we're anti-American. I think she does a wonderful job of explaining what it's like for an American living. I know quite well how it is for Americans here having to put up the hate that comes out of Canadians mouths.
  24. That's garbage. Not the fault of the American people? We aren't talking about some dictatorship in Africa. Americans vote in their leaders. You are clueless.
  25. Boy: how could Canadians not embrace this positive agenda? 'fes sup: was the original campaign slogan going to be "Stand up for Canada, you fucking morons!" until cooler heads prevailed? You CPC types need to get a handle on your own contradictions. Either Canadians are easily-swayed idiots, or they are smart, savvy people who don't need big government telling them what to do and how to spend their money. Depicting them as the former (as no less than three Con supporters here have done) really blunts your outrage over "beer and popcorn"-type sentiments. That one got to ya eh BD The pr
