“Every time another plant closes and relocates to the USA our trade balance gets worse, our tax base shrinks, and our deficits increase. Canada HAS higher wages so people can pay for their houses, Unless this changes Canada will end up a nation of working poor with a handful of foreign Billionaires calling the shots.”
“'Wanting A White Republican President Doesn't Make You Racist,' ?? What ?? Yes it does make you a racist! That is exactly what it makes you.
Wanting an honest, brave, wise, hard working, healthy President who cares about the nation, who has wonderful communications and interpersonal skills - No matter what color that President may be - THAT doesn't make you racist.”
“In a follow up meeting city councilors of Columbia, S.C. voted to install a 240 person gas chamber and barbed wire perimeter fence at their new remote emergency shelter. Council felt that a more "final" solution was needed because homeless people might return to town after using the emergency shelter. Financing details are being worked out in committee.”
““She had her beliefs, you have yours and I have mine. Who can say which are right?” It is easy to determine which are right, by looking at which beliefs alleviate human suffering most effectively.
Does it relieve suffering to deny terminally ill patients’ access to their families, or increase their distress? Does it increase or decrease suffering to withhold painkillers from the terminally ill? Physicians regularly prescribe medications and encourage family interaction. Mother Teresa did the opposite, and for that she is immortalized in stone? Religion really does poison everything.”

“How could a person left on the curb to die become more distressed by people caring for them?”
“Jon Hubbard is from the last generation to become adults before the civil rights movement. This ageing group of gudo'll boys is giving racism one last try before they croak.
Each generation after Hubbard's is more tolerant and accepting than the one before it. This tolerance makes Hubbard and his kkin krazy. Hubbard might not be special after all, and that just won't do.”

“If that were true, the neo-Con republican party wouldn't be as successful as it is. If that were true, the Presidential race would be many more points apart than it is. The very thought that the lies Mittens emitted during the debate could bring the race differential to 2 or 3 points difference, belies your statement. I don't believe there are enough pre-civil rights senile old bigots around to impact the polls to that extent. Sad to say, the infection has spread, disgustingly so.”

“Racism is a disease. It spreads through prolonged contact with the infected. I hope you are right, and current generations are developing immunities to this epidemic.
I find that the disease is just mutating into a form that is harder to identify with the naked eye.”

“Canada is down to it's last million gallons of Maple Syrup? Oh No, What will we power our hockey teams with once that is gone? Somebody STOLE the strategic reserve? THAT explains why NHL negotiations are gridlocked.”
“Maybe "Not Guilty by reason of insanity" fits, but probation is not an appropriate sentence. It is insane to watch your child suffer in agony for a week while denying them the medical care which is readily available. What will the sentence be when another one of their children dies the same way?
Those who need to waste breath on prayer should be able to pray that the ambulance gets to the hospital in time once it is called.”

“It is bad enough they let him die, but they allowed him to suffer for days. That is even worse. They are cruel, heartless, sadistic people, focused on their own "holiness." Very disturbing behavior by the parents and by the court. They should be in jail. If a babysitter had done this, you know where he or she would be now.”
“What a nice story. I'm please to see that one of her options under consideration is a university education. Maybe she will take geology along with some science courses.
How much fun is it to be able to find diamonds in a park?”

“I like to go down there. They have places where you can pan for gold too.”

“The great irony will be that 'god's jewel' will take her to college where, after learning about earth's processes as a budding geology student, she'll dismiss her childish belief in superstitions and adopt a rational, scientific worldview. And from heaven will ring out a tremendous, "D'oh!"”

“Sounds like drudgery with an occasional big payoff!”
“The sad truth is that Paul Broun may be the best the Republicans have when it comes to understanding science. The Republicans have fallen so far down the wormhole of science as lies that there are too few literate scientists left to fill all the posts.
If you truly don't understand or accept the basic tenets of modern science, appoint a doctor and hope for the best?”
