Obama was not heard to say "if I had a son he'd be just like James Edwards or Chauncey Luna." No frenzy over the beating death, by 2 black youths, of the 88 year old Iwo Jima veteran either.

'I am beginning not to recognize this country': Bonnie Klein on receiving the Order of Canada
"I feel enormously thrilled and grateful to be recognized by my adopted country for the Order of Canada. And more than a little surprised. Yet this great honour comes at a moment when I am beginning not to recognize this same country.
Today's Canada is not the nation that we chose in either 1967 or 1975. It is no longer proud of its difference from the U.S. Instead, the government of Canada seems to aim to emulate its southern neighbour as much as possible, even to grovel for its favour at the cost of this country's independence and uniqueness.
We are following in the footsteps of the U.S, into countries in which we have no business. We loudly support Israel's occupation and expansion into Palestinian territories. Our country is closing its doors to immigrants and refugees, including political refugees, except those who can invest large sums in our economy or contribute cheap labour as temporary foreign workers.
We are compromising our historic public support for the arts and communication by starving and threatening our cultural institutions with cutbacks and commercialization. We have allowed our treasured Medicare system to atrophy rather than improve and fund it appropriately; this has made private medical care look much more attractive than it is."

More news on the dangers of Gardasil. How many more young women will be disabled and sick for the rest of their lives before they take it off the market.
Teenagers injured or disabled by cervical cancer vaccines are stepping up efforts to permanently end the government’s subsidy program for injections of Cervarix and Gardasil.
On Friday, eight teens, accompanied by their parents, called out health minister Norihisa Tamura over the issue. The schoolgirls, aged from 14 to 18 — including four in wheelchairs — and their parents are members of the Nationwide Liaison Association of Cervical Cancer Vaccine Victims and Parents.
Tamura was handed five petitions in a meeting with the group at the Health, Labor and Welfare Ministry, association chief Mika Matsufuji said afterward. The request to abolish the vaccination program topped the list.
"According to Dr. Sotaro Sato, who has examined many cervical vaccine victims, the convulsions, inability to walk, and involuntary hand and toe movements are being caused by encephalomyelitis, or the inflammation of the brain and spinal cord.
“Cervical cancer vaccines, which are chemically bound to special types of adjuvants, often trigger encephalomyelitis,” he said.
“Since the vaccines cause autoantibodies against the brain’s neuronal fibers to be produced in many cases, they have triggered demyelinating disorders,” he said, adding they have also induced many cases of cerebral vasculitis.
Cerebral vasculitis causes the body’s immune system to attack blood vessels in the brain, often leading to hemorrhaging, said Sato, who runs a hospital in Osaki, Miyagi Prefecture.
The marketing of Cervarix, made by GlaxoSmithKlein PLC of Britain, was approved in 2009. This was followed by Gardasil, made by Merck Sharp & Dohme (better known as Merck & Co. in the U.S.), in 2011."

As a male I am not privy to the cervical problems of women, however there are many vacines which will affect negatively some people and not others. Since cervical cancer takes many womens lives how do you balance the chances of the ill effects against the chances of not contracting this type of cancer. Years ago in the services we were innoculated against many deseases, some people had problems others did not, maybe something in the ancestry of those made them reject those vaccines. Unless you are advocating genetically testing everyone before a vaccine is administered, I don't think you can overcome this problem...

To whom it may concern,
The SooToday poll which asks about, "The Highway Traffic Act says police officers may not [read CAN NOT] demand a breath sample from a driver unless the driver appears to be impaired by the effects of alcohol.", this is a bad law IMHO.
If an accident happens a breath sample should be taken from all involved.
The officers in the Sault DID act according to the law, but can you imagine the grief that would have been AVOIDED for the grieving mother if they had simply taken a breath sample from the driver?
If the sample came back negative for alcohol there would not have been years of anguish for this mother, and if the sample came back positive the driver would not have had to live with the GUILT of knowing that their drinking was a contributing factor in the accident that killed the boy for the rest of his life.
I pray that the driver had not been drinking... it will be hard to live with the guilt if that was actually the case.
The Highway Traffic Act should be changed. Breath samples should be taken at ALL accident scenes where police are required.
It will avoid a lot of grief on all sides.

Dear right wing,
Thank goodness the driver relieved himself of that guilt. It could have ruined him if he hadn't.

Hopefully, some day, she can find it in her heart to forgive the driver, but that day, if ever, is entirely up to her.
Sincerely and Respectfully,

It seems like your suggestion is a good one, but what may happen is that people will be banned from driving for life and we will just have more people driving around without licenses.

From where I sit in the centre, I do believe some liberals on here don't think hard enough before they speak. But that holds true for conservatives as well. For example, Spellchecker can't run four thoughts together without posting four times in a row. A little thought would allow him to do it in one post. By the way, I guess I have to ask. You mention Liberals with a capital L, which is a designation usually applied to members of the party. Do you really mean that, or do you mean liberals in the true sense? In regard to Democrats and the Ku Klux Klan, there is quite a bit of material out there on it. The main point that seems to be made today, other than in the book that provided the information you posted, is that what took place 150 years ago shouldn't be held against the people of today.
