“I am an avowed "left winger". I am hardly a Conservative or a Ford supporter as you suggest. I just happen to not be an anti-Semite which most people jumping on the Palestinian/Hamas bandwagon seem to be.”

“Hamas could end the conflict tomorrow. No Jewish leader is calling for the destruction of all "Palestinians" but the leadership of Hamas is calling for the destruction of all Jewish men, women and children. If Israel put down their arms tomorrow Hamas would continue to lob bombs at Israeli citizens. Conversely if Canada's First Nations Peoples started lobbing bombs at Ottawa calling for independent States within Canada. Which by the way they have better legal standing than the Palestinians if they called for this. I imagine Elizabeth May and the rest of the Green Party would hardly expect we sit passively by and watch the bombs fall. The Israeli response is measured within the context of the conflict. Israel is an independent democratic State and they deserve Canada's support. I would be a card carrying member of the Green Party if they were not so hypocritical with their foreign policy.”

“Funny, that's not what the Israeli press is reporting:

Palestinian diplomats pressed on with efforts to reach a cease-fire in the Gaza Strip on Monday, even though sources close to Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas were not optimistic that a formula could be found to end the conflict at this time.

“I used to think you could not quantify the depravity when somebody sexually abuses a child. This situation however is the worst possible scenario. This young man was in an incredible position of power over these kids. I have my doubts that this was the first trip he applied his brand of twisted sexuality on these poor children. I hope he rots in prison for the rest of his life. He deserves it. How come nobody saw this? I think his Church also needs to be held accountable for putting this monster in the midst of these babies.”

“Churches and their twisted theology, and their penchant for child abuse no longer belong in foreign aid programs. Uganda is good example of the damage they are capable of.
Some church charities actually do some good in impoverished countries, but they are probably in the minority.”

“Some women don't identify as the gender they were born as. Obviously you don't have teenagers. Half of mine identify as "gender fluid". Which for you information is not something that clogs the shower.”

“I'm only talking about the fact that a lot of women wouldn't know what "cis" means, and that it likely refers to them. In the past few days I asked a bunch of people and not one had ever heard of this term. I'm not questioning the definition of trans people, or others somewhere along that spectrum.”

“Nylon, rayon, pleather, and polyester are not in fact humane products as their production increases pollutants in the environment which in turn adversely affects more animals both wild and domesticated than sheep shearing however cruel it is.
One other small point if a sheep is not sheared it will mat and those mats will cause abscesses and other infections. Sheep are bred to produce more wool than they can naturally shed. The best thing to do would be to humanely raise and shear sheep.”

“Jake, I am Canadian and grew up in fabulous diverse Toronto in the '50's and '60's.

Went to the O'Keefe Centre to see a comedian (a friend bought the tickets ... never heard of the chap) in the early '60's ...

Came out dressed in a beige corduroy suit, carrying a stool. Sat down and started to talk.

I couldn't breathe I was laughing so hard ... funniest night of my life ... still.

Howled with my friend all the way home.

The next day in the Toronto Telegram talked about this riotous soul ...

a "negro".

It was Bill Cosby.

Noticed his colour but it didn't matter. Still doesn't.

Wish America would get it ...

Brains, integrity, courage and honour don't have a race. gender, religious nor sexual persuasion.

Nice, eh

Runs from Scissors on Jun 16, 2014 at 09:53:22

“I really hope no one takes this out on her kids. They don't deserve this. I strongly disagree with what this mother is doing, and think she has an incredible ego to think she can teach up to 30 kids with no formal training. I don't disagree with her wanting to do what is best for her children, just her way of going about it.

I also question where her activism was before this started to affect her directly. I wonder what it will take for parents to shake off their apathy and stand up for their children's education. There are many parents who have been and will be out there on the picket lines, supporting the teachers, and there are some who are actively pressuring their MLAs and other government members to bargain fairly. There needs to be more.”

“I have five children in Public school, one is graduating in two weeks. They have all had fantastic teachers. My children's teachers have made an enormous investment in my children. My son has received extracurricular employment playing music with his band teacher and has been loaned instruments from his teachers personal collection over the years. My six year old daughters grade one teacher spends hours at her home developing lessons and creating art projects to do with "her" kids. My middle child's teacher alerted us to personal problems he was having so we could better protect and provide for his future. I volunteer in classrooms and have done so for eighteen years. If everyone volunteered in a classroom they would understand how we grossly undervalue our educators. They are our allies as parents the Government of BC is not. Our teachers wiped out their strike fund fighting for our children in the Supreme Court of BC. The Government of BC wasted our tax dollars fighting against our children and the future they deserve.”
