“I don't get some of the insulting comments from some of the guys here. I don't think the dress is particularly flattering, however she's still pretty hot IMO. I also don't mind the pixie cut.”

“When this is all over, the Kenyan military and others need to launch an all-out, take no prisoners offensive against Al-Shabab.”

“Okay James, for starters how about:

1. eliminating the $3 touch tone service fee for starters. Virtually every phone is now touch tone, yet the telcos (or at least Bell) continue to charge for this.
2. eliminate network access or similar fee for long distance called. I was charged 25 cents for a one minute call to another part of the GTA, and a further $3 LD network fee.
3. make unlocked phones mandatory
4. force the telcos to clearly spell out pricing
5. come up with a fairer formula for calculating cancellation fees
6. allow Canadians to pick and choose the TV channels they want without having to pay for ones they don't
7. limit the amount of 'system maintenance and upgrade' fees the telcos can charge. Every year, consumers are being dinged for more money per month.

I believe the government either directly or via the CRTC has the power to do the above without giving away the farm to foreign competitors. I can almost guarantee that your party's fortunes would rise significantly if you do the above. Bell, for example, plans to levy an additional $2 fee for home phone and $3 for internet service in November. That's $5 more per month or $60 per year.”

Obama: Russia Doesn't Share American 'Values' In Syria

Obama: Russia Doesn't Share American 'Values' In Syria

Commented Sep 15, 2013 at 16:00:00 in Politics

“Are we talking about the same American "values" that overlook and arguably abet (both militarily and financially) Israel's human rights abuses. The same values that used MILLIONS of gallons of chemical weapons in Vietnam and depleted uranium in Iraq. The same values that nuked not one, but two Japanese cities. The same values that have sponsored coups, revolutions and terrorists throughout the world, often with tragic consequences for ordinary people, including Americans. The same values that allow greedy bankers to....the list is virtually endless.

A wise person once said, let he who is without sin cast the first stone -- advice Obama and Kerry would be wise to consider if they want to retain a vestige of credibility.”

ALS 3 on Sep 15, 2013 at 16:48:03

“Yes, because every country, every person, every everything is the exact same thing. Except, wait a minute, it's not. The idea that decisions made in this country that don't measure to the value system you carry, is not of any interest. Like it or not, every one is dangerous, and every answer is never simple and understandable. The choices made, don't fit perfectly, because that's the way the world is.

The reality is, it was much easier to accept that we had to do what we had to do, when you're being labeled a terrorist sympathizer. Nice, isn't it, having the luxury to use your free speech when you want.”

“I'll go with you on napalm and maybe agent orange. But making bullets out of depleted uranium (DU) was more about ballistics than radioactivity. DU is 70% more dense than lead and used in armor-piercing ballistics.

DU is toxic because uranium is a toxic metal, like arsenic, not because it is mildly radioactive, emitting nearly-harmless alpha particles.

DU is called "depleted" because it has less U-235 (bomb making stuff) and it emits less radiation than natural Uranium Oxide.”

“Yes, they did. The subprime mortgage scam blew off about $22 trillion in assets, as I recall. Yet after that disaster, the GDP of Pakistan is still $250 billion, and the GDP of America is nearly $14 trillion.

GDP per capita in Pakistan is about $2,900 a year, equal to about $1.45 an hour in the US working full time, 40 hours a week, 2,000 hours a year.

I don't see many people leaving America for greener pastures in Pakistan.”
