“The last thing the oil giants give a crap about is anyone's property, health or land. Their god is money, and greed is and effect of it. As far as jobs created, very few will be created nor maintained. The only people to benefit are the bloated oil barons.”
“Please research the history of Saint Nicholas whom actually came from present day Turkey. I have had students research Santa when we were studying mythical characters at Christmas time. Saint Nicholas was Sainted for his acts of generosity.
Let's get it right shall we.

“No teacher wronged me, its just something I have come to realize they don't do anything. College was a 4 year waste of time, I learned nothing that helped me in my career. Everything I learned was from doing the work and independent learning ”

“Harper MUST be out-voted in 2015. He is selling us out to China, he is a dictator and could care less about Canadians. It's all about the almighty buck. He will end up on several boards of mega corporations anyway just like maniacal Mike Harris. 2 peas in a pod. Move over gents, Rob Ford will be right behind you. Wait ...he will need his own pod!
Mosr neo-con Canadians have no idead about the living conditions of our Native brothers and sisters and therefore would most likely finish them off. Third world nations have nothing on our Reserves.”

“And this is to be surprising news, Earth shattering and newsworthy?! Please, to say he wants control is the understatement of the bloody Century. He is a DICTATOR!!!! We do not have a democracy in Canada. We make believe we are something we are not! This is the most corrupt Federal government and all of the guilty senators, Dufffy and Wallin et al, should be made to perform unpaid community labour. Then throw Harper into a sweat shop! For 13 long years, because it sounds like the unlucky number to me.”

“This is a true indicator of how the Republicans think. When Obama was elected 4 years ago the GOP stated that they were determined to ensure his failure as a President. I think that is treason to try to overturn a democratically elected President, is it not?
To wish him assassinated is punishable is it not? I'm sure if a Democrat said this stuff the Republicans would be all over it. This party is racist, opportunistic, out of touch with "the people. "
The GOP is top heavy with eletist muli-millionaires and billionaires whose money is offsore away from US taxes. Wow, talk about hypocritical! They want everyone else to pay up but them. Every last one of these Robber Barons who have their money offshore, should be thrown in prison for tax evasion.
Let's start with Donald Trump! He a disgrace.”
“My father worked for the predecessor British Drug Houses then Glaxo Laboratories Allen and Hanbury's, then Glaxo Canada. He was with this company in sales, Management and then in charge of professional and public, medical relations and traveled all across Canada. He retired after 38 years and was a consultant for 2. We always were aware of the activities and I am most pleased that GSK will suspend the practice of paying doctors to promote the products and the company. However, my belief is that there will be some incentive for these doctors to put in a good word for them.
Ben H. God helps those who help themselves. Working in tandem with medical practitioners and holistic doctors there are medicines which really do work...if taken properly!
Get a grip pal!”

“tooldude: Please revisit your history books. We forced and still do force the aboriginal people to stay on reservations for their lives and benefits to carry on. Really, the benefits are not great. Ever been to an aboriginal community? You won't want to stay. Perhaps you should be told where to live in order to get what is and was yours to begin with. Don't Canadains whom have been here for generations feel a bit put out when new people come into this country and immigrants are handed everything to them without paying a single cent in taxes? We have been toiling and are of the opinion that we deserve things more than the new people, correct?
Just put yourself in their position. I wish people would really get a handle on the whole issue of the 3rd world conditions in which the Native Canadains live. The UN has even chastised Canada for its mistreatment of our aboriginal peoples.
Yes, my heart and prayers go out to all whom have been affected by this tradedy.”

“These neo-Cons are more crooked than the Liberals ever were or will be. Conservatives preach transparency and accountability but they don't do it! The Cons are that, Cons. They BS their way into the House and the great Dictator runs this country into the ground.
Canada was a once proud country, now it is headed to the bottom of the Global heap as far as a worthy country to trust or live in. These Conservatives have no social or ethical morals. They could care less about anyone whom may need help, or delivering the truth about anything the Canadain public should know.”
“Corporations run the news which is all right wing. there is no more progressive news reporting. There is always a right wing slant on the news because all news organizations are owned by corporations. Thus all reporters MUST take a right wing stance on the news, right or wrong.”
“The USA is in dire straits because of this narrow minded neo-conservative thinking. Take a look at Regan, Thatcher, GW Bush, S Harper (Canada) and others who have done nothing but create financial troubles in their respective countries. They have brainwashed people into thinking they have taken care of their country while driving them farther into debt.
Right wingers must get over themselves, step back and take a look at themselves. Look in the mirror and see who is causing trouble in your country and you will see the answer.
Just close up shop and everyone go back to their place of origin, 500 to 600 years ago. Thenwhat?”

“The conservative and corporate dumbing down of society has been occuring over the last 30+ years thanks to political leaders such as, Ronald the B class actor Regan, and Margaret the Iron Lady Thatcher. Cuts to education were led by corporate heads who wanted to privatize the education system. Let's create a crises as they did here in Ontario under maniacal Mike Harris in the mid to late 90's. and the substance of courses taught are weakened because, when society is too stupid to make educated decisions corporations can manufacture crap, sell it to the masses while manufacturing crap, in crap factories in China and India. These inferior products are so cheaply pproduced they have an extraordinarily short life span. Then we pay more of our money to line the corporat heads' pockets. Wow, are we stupid! Conservative politicians have the backing of the mega-corporations because they do what they want them to do. We elect people to run our government but, it is the corporations who are running our countries, not our democratically elected ploticians!.
If people do not wake up soon we will revert to the quality of life people had in the 1890's before unions were brought about to fight for the rights of workers. But the corporations and conservatives have people bending over backwards and kissing their own butts blinding them to their ruse. They have brainwashed the middle-class and lower into believing them that unions are evil. Hence, mega-corps cut jobs & pay”
“Perhaps it is time a progressive took the helm and steer the city with a heart to demonstrate that the mayor and the whole city Hall must also serve the "people" as well as the corporate types. As an outsider looking in, New York would serve as a leader when addressing the needs of the "Whole City" rather than just the weathy.
While people cut their own throats by damning the unions and progressives, their wages are cut, no benefits or fewer of them and the 99% will not be able to afford the essentials of life.
I have one question: If everyone takes less pay, no benefits the quality of life suffers and no one can buy squat, are the 1% glutants going to buy ALL of what they manufacture and sell? Has anyone thought of that?
New York could actually be held as a model for progressives and a bright light for the future as it once did when, thousands of immigrant came into view of the Statue of Liberty they held onto their dreams of a better life for themselves and all of their descendants.
Oppressive measures will never serve anyone in a positive maner.”
