  1. I agree with Sparhawk. One difference is that Canada has tried to stay out of trying to tell everyone else how to live. As far as I can recall not one of our Canadian embasies in any foreign country has been attacked. We are not in the buisness of regime change, whereas the US has been engaging in this for decades. As a result many US embasies in other countries have fallen vitcim to attacks. As a Canadian, I do not fear an attack will happen here. If it happens, well it happens, and we should really not put alot of focus on it, and just move on. The more focus that is put on international te
  2. Riiiiiiight .. What exactly do we beed to be sheilded from? And your sarcastic remark about paying our way through the Cold War, explain and expand on that one please.
  3. Really I am surpised Novak is not being prosecuted for his actions of leaking the information. He is the one who really broke the story. There is no real Investigative Reporting done these days in the U.S it seems. All your major news sources seem to be controlled by something. And you think North Korea has a tight grip on the information. What was it the judje said? OH - "Second, at a time when journalists seek a reporter's privilege akin to the attorney-client privilege, they ought to recognize that an attorney can be compelled to testify if his client communicates to the attorney for t
  4. Devils Advocate talking here, so it's gonna get rough. Religion is for the weak. I don't NEED someone to guide me. I am well capable of doing that on my own. I do not need to be in a group to assure my beliefs in anything. If they need someone to guide them, they are about as useless as sheep. Follow the heard, beleive in everything they say. Go on your doomed way. Religion has only brought WAR throughout our entire history. We fight and die for religion FIRST before King and Country. Just sad. Now that that is out of the way, Church is all fine and dandy for some. I do understand religion,
  5. I think the point you are trying to make is that gays are decent people just like straight people. There are more heterosexuals waiting in the park for some random stranger than gays. If anyone thinks gays will be the downfall of society, you need to give your head a good fucking shake. Not just gays are in these bath houses, gay bars ect. As a straight person I go to gay bars once in a while. A good friend of mine is a bartender there. He is a very nice guy. Also a budding artist. So consider me a factor in the whole downfall of society, you can just throw me into the gay camp and prosecute m
  6. I have been watching the developments on the Missle Defence Shield for some time. I know most of you have been watching the same. http://www.cbc.ca/story/canada/national/20...wfoundland.html NO matter what we do. The radar will be put in place. The argument is that the new radar will not just help out with the MDS, but provide better radar coverage persion for our Atlantic coast. They want to sell it as an upgrade. They have been looking at Labrador. The US will try anything to sell us this bullshit plan. We lost out huge when the Avro Arrow was canceled due to the prospect of a missle defe
  7. Bush is no way one of the people who started this whole fear buisness. But I agree that he (and the powers that control him) used it extensivley. Rummy and Co. are the ones that are doing everything. So it would be the others downfall that no one would notice the idiot puppet president. But yes I agree the brilliance in the proceesings is to have Bush look like and act like an idiot president so the real gears can work in the background. Rummy, from the documentary is one of the people who started it all. THAT man, along with Cheney ect, are the ones that are pulling the strings. Bush may no
  8. You cannot seriously expect me to swallow this crap. I have read some of this stuff that you have posted and well, there is nothing to back any of this up from what I see. I will check things out some more and keep an eye on it. Sources cannot be confirmed ect. And you expect Bush and Cheney to step down? ARe these the same people that rigged both elections for Bush/Cheney? Or is there another hidden power in place here? This would have to be a global event and would have to happen simultaneously in every country across the globe to be effective. What about those countries that are not going
  9. Notice I said accepting things you cannot change, like being gay and whatnot. Murder is not acceptable in any case. That is why the judicial system will throw you in the klink. That has consequences. There are things you just cannot change no matter how much you try. But you don't get thrown in jail for being gay! / That notion never came up in my arguments. You SHOULD talk about these things with friends and relatives. But as a whole, again from the topic thread, the way I see it, there is no use for religion in government. We don’t need to agree to get along. <{POST_SNAPBACK}>
  10. No it doesn't. This response alone backs up everything I have stated. And you should really revisit the origional post on what started this topic again.
  11. Clearify what you mean by this. In a practical way what does it look like. <{POST_SNAPBACK}> Beliefs in a religion, like being a Christian, Catholic, Jew, Muslim. Sure good old moral values are needed in govermnet, but we need to maintain the seperation of church and state. Also those morals have to reflect the society of today. If you are a religious person and a person in power, you cannot let your religious beleifs interfere with the daily workings of the government. This cannot be done for God or whatever. Do it for the people. Once you start letting your religious beleif
  12. Without the picture, some just cannot understand the true cost of the war. What should really be shown in the media, is the devestation that is in Iraq due to the war. How many cities are just a total mess because of the invasion. These are the pictures that should be shown to the Amercian public and the rest of the world. The media is a total wuss now when it comes to reporting news. They are not journalists anymore and have nothing in the ways of investigative reporting. They are all military and government PR scams. over 1700 troops dead. over 10,000 wounded. Iraqi civilian casualties? F
  13. You should not need religion in government to have these morals in place. You just need good people. Sure bring your valid religious values to to the table, but not your beliefs in the religion. Some things can apply, but again common sense would be the big key here. And our government just does not have common sense.
  14. I wonder why this thread died? I have been watching it for about a week now. I was hoping for something solid from the religious folks. Nothing to back the idea of more religion in government. Nothing. So I guess there is no use for religion in governemt. Or there would be more talk about it in this thread.
  15. You should really include the right link when posting about something. http://www.canoe.ca/NewsStand/Columnists/O...12/1082913.html
  16. If you feel I am suppressing your religious beliefs, this would be all in your head. I hope to hell this is not a troll. If so, it is a sad one at best. You can beleive in whatever you want. Seperation of church and state means just that. If you had religious law entering into mainstream society again (which I am glad it is not) you would find more oppsosition to it from all walks of life. You know that we have taken out the Lord's Prayer in our public shool system back in (I cannot seem to find exactly when) the 80's I think. One question before I continue with things here. What religion
  17. Just as we don't wish to see our society infected with atheistic and immoral legalised drugs, same sex marriages and abortion. These are all views that you, being the non-religious minority, have imposed on the majority. <{POST_SNAPBACK}> Are you fan of equal rights? Does your religion teach you tolerance. Do you reside in a 'live let live' attitude? Please just stop spewing this without any evidence. Religion is a personal choice. But, even when you choose the wrong religion, you get smacked by the others who, a) don't understand your religion, think it is all black and whit
  18. Costing too much to society? Are you sure you know what you are talking about? And you do realize WHY DDT was banned. If that stuff kills of plant and animal life in short term, over long term use, plants and animals will die and well you know how the food chain works right? We would be in alot more trouble. So this ends up costing more. And you cannot look at just the monetary costs. I agree with Sparhawk on the spirituality kick. I think being ignorant and stupid costs us more than all that other shit combined. I am an atheist/agnostic person. You are being way to general in your accusatio
  19. Indeed. The one documentary 'The Power of Nightmares but Adam Scott (Britian) showed quite a bit of that stuff. I recall one sceen where Rumsfeld was being interviewed on CNN. He had a nicely detailed diagram/picture of an Al Queada moutain bunker. It had roads in, places for accomodations, places to store weapons, intelligence center ect. Needless to say they never found these terrorist bunkers. Only small caves filled with small arms ammunition and some shoulder fired missles. All the rhetoric now about Iran is very similar to all the propaganda that was spewed out of the Bush administratio
  20. Well, for one, the US troops should be under the rule that everyone else is. They cannot be granted immunity from their actions (or leaders actions). But this is how they want and do operate. Nothing can touch the US troops. Look, the threats from Russia are nothing to worry about. I think all that stuff is just localized. That wont spill over to North America. Break away states that are still in turmoil and have local problems to deal with. So why even mention China if they are no threat to the US, or the world. Getting back to it all. There is still no need for Space Based weapons. On
  21. I will watch this week. The more of this that is out there the better.
  22. Ok granted the UN needs some revamping, but should not have the US try to change it to what they want. And other countries have disregarded the UN in cases, but to this date, the US is one of the only countries that does not recognize the World Court and other world bodies like the WTO... They seem to have the mentality of being 'above the law'. Why do they need to be kept in check? Russian is no real threat anymore. The Soviet Union collapsed back in the late 80's. And China is just starting to grow as a nation. And I have not heard of any threats by China to take over the world. The only
  23. Hey, I am new around here so take it easy on my grammer and spelling, sometimes my thoughts come out a bit random. But, but.... but this is not Star Wars. Well, yes it is, and I do wonder how the hell all that new technology will be paid for. This most likely has been in the works since the Reagan administration. They may have already had allot of funding for these new space weapons. For the fact there is no reason a toilet seat costs a few thousand dollars, or a $500 hammer. Over 400 billion spent on the war on Terrorism, 80 billion emergency funding, minus the cost of 50 billion (over th
  24. Assuming I support the death of Americans is not a good idea. But after the unneccessary invasion of Iraq, the whole patriotic thing around 9/11 really looses it's meaning. It is a shame indeed that many lost their lives, but there is no justification of it when you are 100% wrong for the reasons GWB invaded Iraq. You are totaly dishonouring their deaths for something that is not even remotely related to the incident. And really GWB is just a puppet in the whole scheme of things. It's people like Wolfowitz, Cheney, and Rumsfeld who are the real string pullers in this situation. They have been
  25. Greetings all. I want to focus on the power of fear. I have been watchng the happenins in the US and abroad for some time. The reasons for the invasion of Iraq is a disgrace to the American people. The ability to dream up the worst case scenario and present it to the public in a way that would let the leaders maintain control. I am basing allot of this on a documentary I have watched entitles the Powers Of Nightmares : The Rise of the Politics of Fear by Adam Curtis. IT ws quite compelling, I do recommend it for viewing. It focused around the upcomming neo-conservatives along with a new
