  1. Do you see "violent religious freaks running about" very often? How often would you say you encounter such a problem personally? Do other people around you see them too, or just you? When you pass a store window, can you see the reflection of all these "violent religious freaks" who you think are chasing you, or do they just disappear?
  2. All of humanity ... so long as they are Christian evangelicals. `You're not going to bring atheists into the government? How dare you maintain that those who believe in the Judeo Christian values are better qualified to govern America than Hindus and Muslims?' My simple answer is, `Yes, they are.'" --from Pat Robertson's
  3. Just like Christianity. Well, you displayed your real bias - not religion but skin colour. There are lots of white Muslims, and non-white Christians, and you are a racist.
  4. Bryant hit his bike and damaged it. Obviously he wanted Bryant to stop and probably pay for the damage. Bryant was speeding, "90" so it was then too dangerous for him to let go. Bryant says he is "innocent". At this point, I don't agree.
  5. Now I wonder what MrCan thinks of someone with views like this: Gary McHale ... the 'Christian' Wahabi. Gary W. McHale says, "There was a difference in how the two genders came about. Man is created from the dust of the earth, which links him to the world, while the woman is created from his side, which links her to the man." http://www.alfredplacechurch.org.uk/Sermons/1tim10.htm yada yada yada ... women must submit to men ... women cannot lead ... yada yada yada.
  6. LINK? ... or is this just another of your ignorant opinions?
  7. Well thanks for finally providing a link. It confirms what I have been told, and believe: 1) Notice that they did not say 'religious' beliefs. It is not a reflection of the Muslim religion, but to extreme traditional tribal practices that pre-existed Islam, resurrected by extremist sects such as that referred to as 'Wahabi' (derogatory). 2) Men who murder women always have an excuse "it was her fault ... she drove me to it ...the voices told me to". These murderers are no different. Violent psychopaths and psychotics and rage-filled puny-dick men exist everywhere. 3) Murder of women by males known to them is nearly twice as common in the US as in the Muslim population: http://www.islamicpopulation.com/ total Muslim Population in 2009 is 1.66 billion - murders deemed 'honour killings' 5,000 (from your link) = 0.0003% http://www.vpc.org/studies/wmmw2008.pdf For homicides in which the victim to offender relationship could be identified, 92 percent of female victims (1,572 out of 1,701) were murdered by someone they knew. 1,572/300,000,000 = 0.0005% [/i] All of your sound and fury is either ignorance or racism, imo, neither of which are 'truth'.
  8. Links to evidence of same please. And some indication of why this is an issue might help the discussion. Why is this a problem justifying denial of freedom of speech and assembly? Of course, racists would see a problem, but why does that matter to you?
  9. Thanks Charles. I think the issue with this thread is that there is no issue to discuss: No cases of "white urban Liberals meddling" ... have been identified.
  10. Accused is not convicted.
  11. My recollection is that the Toronto police were asked to keep the records by some cultural communities concerned that they were being unfairly targeted for arrest and detainment, but the cops wisely declined because they did not feel competent in identifying people's race/cultural origin. ("Unhh ... Are you 'Indian' or Indian, sir?") Thus, they also stopped their haphazard practice of identifying only "black" people (some of whom weren't) and not "white" or "brown" people. The media then wisely followed suit. You either identify everyone or no one by race. And of course my favourite story ... white guy in grubby tank top and cutoffs gets into heated debate in a store, owner calls police, white guy stands outside to wait for police, police pull up and take down the black guy in the three-piece suit standing near him. Now let's see ... would that count as an arrest of a black man in your world?
  12. Link please. I'd like to see the rest of the countries. Obviously you've been cherry picking.
  13. hunh? Can you provide a link to those "policies"?
  14. Not a chance in hell. First and last time I had a flu shot I got pneumonia. Doctor said I was 'depressed', not sick from the shot, so I was sick for 6 months before I got proper treatment. They absolutely refuse to believe that those things make people sick, but they do. Is it a conspiracy to reduce the population of the earth? I'm really not sure, but I'm not taking any more chances.
  15. Yes it did, and we all swore "never again" ... except the Israelis, apparently. And ... how many Palestinians have been killed and displaced by Israelis since 1948? Can you not see why their concern might be more for their own immediate safety from Israel? I just think it is insensitive and counter productive to force this issue at this time. They are not likely to see Israelis as 'victims'. I predict the lessons will not go well. It will only, as it is already, disrupt the peace process. And of course, that likely is the purpose - if Israel has no intention of allowing Gaza to live in peace.
  16. BRANTFORD: Opponents force logging crew to pack up Native activists and nonnative environmental advocates combined to stymie an aggregate company on the first day of its attempt to log nearly 1,300 trees from a forested area and plantation it owns on the city's outskirts. A crew hired by Telephone City Aggregates packed its equipment and drove out of the area around noon Monday after being confronted by opponents that included native activists and cyclists and hikers using the Grand Valley Trail who are angry that a stretch had been cut off to allow for cutting. Company officials did not returns calls for an interview. Advocate Mary Lou Knechtel went early in the morning to an area once known as Ibor Park -- a long-defunct scout camp -- west of the northwest business park, just south of Highway 403 and by the eastern bank of the Grand River. She talked to members of the cutting crew. Soon others showed up, including trail users angry at the imposition of barricades without sufficient notice or consultation. "A lot of people who use the trail in that area are concerned," Knechtel said in a later interview. "They feel it is unique, and to harvest timber there would cause a lot of damage." At one point, Vince Gilchrist, of the Haudenosaunee Men's Fire, told the workers about native concerns over cutting in the area, and suggested they should pack up their equipment and leave. After a short discussion, the workers complied, and began putting equipment on a truck. An interesting development ... locals from Brantford working with Six Nations to protect the land. Wonderful!
  17. http://www.sault-canada.com/development/in...l=0,3,43,53,407 In 2008, Sault Ste. Marie City Council passed a resolution declaring the community β€œThe Alternative Energy Capital of North America.” It was a bold claim β€” one that, if not backed up, could potentially place the city at the butt end of more than a few nasty jokes. However, the claim was by no means an empty one. It was substantiated β€” big time. Taken as a whole, the following projects provide more than enough evidence to support the declaration: wind energy, hydroelectric stations, solar energy, cogeneration projects, waste-to-energy, reverse polymerization, biomass, biodiesel, fibre crop and methane collection. Together, these initiatives will generate more than 560 megawatts of electricity, enough to power over 200,000 homes across the province.
  18. Try finding a country that isn't multicultural. http://www.infoplease.com/ipa/A0855611.html
  19. Forum rules: INSULTS Insults are the ammunition of the unintelligent - do not use them. It is okay to criticize a policy, decision, action or comment. Such criticism is part of healthy debate. It is not okay to criticize a person's character or directly insult them, regardless of their position or actions. Derogatory terms such as "loser", "idiot", etc are not permitted unless the context clearly implies that it is not serious. Rule of thumb: Play the ball, not the person (i.e. tackle the argument, not the person making it). Yes ... Ma'am.
  20. It's a silly time to make an issue of this, imo. It's about politics, not education. How many Palestinians have been killed and driven out by Israelis since 1948? Can you see how they might not be receptive?
  21. Hey Pliny, has it ever occurred to you to pay attention to the thread topic and to follow the line of discussion?
  22. I'm reporting every one of your posts that contains personal insults. And it's Ma'am to you, sonny.
