“Point. One finger at the UN and three are pointed back at you. Blaming the UN is pointless: it's only as effective as we want it to be. Until Israel and Palestine really want peace, no power on earth can keep them from war.”

“You have to be freaking joking: people are worried about THIS? I mean, it if was of Ron Jeremy proportions than, yeah - that would be creepy. But this looks about as normal as possible. Does it pee at you when you try to change the diaper? THAT would be cool!”

“Don't be - be sad if people don't step up and challenge Ford and his kind. This just shows us that there is still much work left to be done by Canadians of conscience. It also shows us that there are many willing to do the work.”

“I feel nauseous every time I think of Canada's foreign policy being in the hands of these fools. Once we actually did some good. Now? Suddenly the UN's the enemy. News flash: the UN is what we make of it - collective security - working together. When's the next election?”

“UN is a joke compared to the UN of the 1950s. Also, it does not have any real power at all and it role is to force nations to face each other in something like this. The problem, Hamas is not a nation and they do not even listen to them”
“This video does nothing to provide context on the story and is certainly not what the families of the passengers need to be exposed to, especially the families of the victims whose passports were displayed. Please remove it quickly.”

“Given that smoking any substance is harmful, and that an oil/resin would allow for far more precise dosage measurement, Health Canada's logic on this is flawed to say the least. Unfortunately, not enough clinical research has been done on medical marijuana to challenge Health Canada as yet. Wouldn't it be nice if instead of the sloppy half measures we have now, marijuana were treated the same as any other medicinal substance and subjected to standard trials?”

“We would have to Wait to long for clinical trials. Have other countries where it's been legal done any research on medical uses?”

“It is actually easier to titrate smoke or vapor, due to the variability of absorption and metabolization.
The rapid onset of smoke or vapor also has advantages under some conditions.
Cannabis has been exhaustively studied for decades. It should have been grandfathered into the formulary, like dozens of other natural health products, by virtue of being "generally recognized as safe."
According to the Office of Natural Health Products, the evidence in support of NHPs need "not be limited to double blind clinical trials but [may] also include other types of evidence such as generally accepted and traditional references, professional consensus, other types of clinical trials and other clinical or scientific evidence ... depending on the type of claim being made, with different evidence being required for structure-function claims and risk-reduction claims
for minor self-limiting conditions than for therapeutic or treatment claims."
This because the Standing Committee on Health recognized that whole herbs can not be standardized and may contain more than one therapeutic agent in varying proportions. For example, there are over 800 volatile chemicals present in roasted coffee, only 21 have actually been tested on animals and 16 of these cause cancer in rodents. Yet, coffee remains legal and is generally considered fairly safe. Cannabis is not a new single-compound chemical entity -- which is what pharmaceutical trials are designed to address.”

“No. No, he doesn't look good. He looks and sounds like a narcistic jerk. Maybe he'll be lucky and have parents who might help him pay for the laser treatments as I'm sure currently they feel a tremendous amount of guilt.”
“Except for the fact that a plane was shot down with a grevious loss of life, I think it's a stretch to compare it to KAL 007. Also, 007 was shot down by a Soviet fighter, not a Russian. It'll never happen, but we should wait for an investigation before we start pointing fingers.”
