“No, actually Nuclear Energy is cheap, clean and efficient not to mention safe.

It was politics that caused fukoshima, not nuclear power plants. Nobody has time for your enviro-whacks to cripple the world's energy supply because of some unresearched opinion. Nuclear power is still used by a variety of nations, and closing those plants down would force the use of other types of plants, such as coal, as well as push up the price of electric, hurting the economy and indirectly affecting millions. Think before you just state that we should just make these huge changes based on a half-assed whim.”

“The only reason that the electrical loads have been allowed to grow as they have is because the polluters have supplied monetarily cheap and environmentally costly electricity. But they do not pay the environmental costs so what you are seeing as cost is an illusion. If we look around we will see electrical waste on a mammoth scale. All enabled by polluters. To claim that nuclear power is safe is simply a dismissal of reality. There is nothing that mankind can do or has done that is free from catastrophic accidents.”

“Exactly. They have a backbone, not like like leftwingers who try to hide behind appeasement.

They support Israel but they don't allow that support to cloud their judgement in giving Canada the freedom it deserves.

“I really don't think the situation is as you describe it and I feel that you just picked up on the partisan rhetoric of liberals & ndp. There are a lot of issues that if you look at them carefully, such as the release of documents for Afghanistan, you will notice that the Harper government is actually a big improvement from the Liberals, and their policies are much more realistic than the ndp.

Every side always has super nasty stuff to say about the other. Sometimes it's true, but more often than not, facts are hidden in exaggerations and misconceptions. 

Look at the laws being passed and move past the petty scandals. Look at how the issues are being dealt with, not just today when the media is hysterical about the cost of some fighter jet, but follow the trail until the law is signed and then compare this government to the last and tell me why reducing our debt and creating a competitive economy is a bad idea for a government that has no problem with universal healthcare. ”

“You forgot to add,

"the left-wing frankfurt school of thought neo-marxism and all the crap it brought with it including "hate speech", affirmative action, political correctness, etc.."

The destruction of Western civilization by the so called "progressives" (nothing more than the naive hippies of the 60s growing up to regurgitate crap that spawned in the 1930s) is something you should really be worried about.

Google it. You may learn something apart from the coolest politically correct buzzword.”

“I'm so glad you agree with me! Yes, regardless of political persuasion, my point is simply that there are far more important things to be concerned about than the First Lady dancing on a late-night talk show. And the reasons for one to be "embarrassed" by one's country should be for far more serious transgressions. But, to each his own! :)”

“"Funny how people complain about all the expenditures in gov't which make sense (has anyone seen the old design?) but yet have such massive wastage's in places like welfare and aboriginal affairs."”

“It's not about the money at all! $50k is a drop in the bucket for a $250Bn/yr budget. It's about the pathalogical need this "Harper Government"™ has to LIE on almost every issue they're confronted with. We are talking many orders of magnitude of deception & fraud on all fronts such that the darkest hours of Liberal malfeasance, Ad Scam, seem like the confessions of chaste & pious nun!

It's about a Government of One Man rule bereft of all ethical boundaries or moral limits, about a man who surrounds himself with political pygmies in Cabinet & fills his benches with corrupt detestable eunuchs and calls that a political party.”

“"Laws against homosexual behavior should remain on the books, not to be indiscriminately enforced against anyone who happens to be caught violating them, but to be used when necessary to send a clear message that those who flagrantly violate society's regulation of sexual behavior cannot be permitted to remain as acceptable, equal citizens within that society."

I'm curious: what part of this seems sensible to you?”

“Well, actually we've seen millions if not billions being lifted from poverty in the emerging world, from Eastern Europe, Latin America and most notably Asia. 
In the West what is seen as "collapse" is just a general shift in the market. Yes jobs that have lost, industries have disappeared and those who had a stake in them are complaining. But while I used to be against free trade, I realized that the data proves that for every dollar outsourced, over a dollar is generated at home. It creates different sorts of jobs, it may hurt the very poor with no real marketable skills, but its an advantage for everyone else, including the middle class. Google the effects of free trade and outsourcing and the US economy as an example and you'll see the data points I'm talking about. ”
