    Too true to be funny.

    If you ever wondered what side of the fence you sit on, this is a great

    If a conservative doesn't like guns, he doesn't buy one.

    If a liberal doesn't like guns, he wants all guns outlawed.

    If a conservative is a vegetarian, he doesn`t eat meat.

    If a liberal is a vegetarian, he wants all meat products banned for

    If a conservative is homosexual, he quietly leads his life.

    If a liberal is homosexual, he demands Legislated respect.

    If a conservative is down-and-out, he thinks about how to better his

    A liberal wonders who is going to take care of him.

    If a conservative doesn't like a talk show host, he switches channels.

    Liberals demand that those they don't like be shut down.

    If a conservative is a non-believer, he doesn't go to church.

    A liberal non-believer wants any mention of God and religion silenced.
    (Unless it's a foreign religion, of course!)

    If a conservative decides he needs health care, he goes about shopping
    for it, or may choose a job that provides it.

    A liberal demands that the rest of us should pay for his.

    If a conservative reads this, he'll forward it so his friends can have a

    good laugh.

    A liberal will delete it because he's "offended".

    Well I forwarded it to you, so you know where I stand!

    And the outcome is (only showing 1 week):

    Canada :

    March 30th :
    Honda adds 400 more jobs

    Canadian reno tax credit boosted U.S. sales

    Fear of rate hike sparks Calgary housing sales

    March 29th:Banks bump up mortgage rates

    March 26th:GM Canada recalling 885 workers

    March24th: Inflation higher than expected: prepare Canadians for an increase in interest rates

    March 23rd: Housing sales boom to continue

    March 22nd:
    Canada's GDP growth to top G7 in 2010

    Canada's soaring dollar

    USA :

    March 29th: U.S. consumer spending up slightly , economy is recovering, but at a slow pace

    March 26th: U.S. mortgage relief aims to shrink loans

    March25th: Drop in U.S. new jobless claims lifts Dow

    March 24th: U.S. economy shows mixed signs of recovery

    March23:U.S. existing homes sales fall

    Not being bias at all. But that's the week in review.

    But, I bet you can blame it all on Obama, or perhaps the Canadian Conservatives had it right, all along ?

    No matter what, we are getting the jobs. I guess we don't care if we make $5 hr less pay (as in UPS), get no company pension (don't need it, we save for ourselves, don't even get a 401K constribution from companies), and get no healthcare bennis from companies.
    (except medication and dental).

    Well, to be honest, if a Chinese, Japanese, European, or other world company, wanted to set foot in North America, where do you think they would go ?
    Not to forget, less corperate taxes.

    Thier is no majic wond now, to turn things around that extreme now, to make the USA more competitive.
    Therfor creating jobs instantly won't be easy.
    Not after years of capitalisum. It will take some time.

    Why would you say that ? Can't face the differences in headlines (which are all linked to the originally CBC sites) ?

    I posted back in June, for investing people , to invest in the Canadian Stock Market , using Canadian Dollars. But, I know , nobody listened, nor cared.

    Alone, on the dollar value, a gain of 25%, plus the stockmarket gain of 30%...or more..well over 50% profit within 6 months !

    US dollar - Canada Dollar :

    After reading the first post, I don't think there are any true conservatives left in this country.

    What is a liberal in it's historical sense? Notice the ethmology being the point.

    What is a conservative in it's historical sense?

    The conservative definition lacks the ethmology that the word liberal had so let's look at the root word of conservative, the word conserve and notice the ethmology. The ethmology being the equalizer in the debate of what is what.

    Which one of these classifications would be about letting the individual be free, decide for themselves and would want to be unshackled from an large entity who seeks by it's own authority to limit the individual of his/her freedom no matter how one might choose to express that? On the flipside, which one of these would not only want to enforce and maintain the status quo but would also use authority and rigidity in society in order to limit the individual of choices and mandate structure in order to "preserve" what is already in place? Which one regardless of political/social/economic cause would resort to the use of authority and state power to achieve an ends and which one might allow individuals to wash out their own conflicts among themselves in some form or free society? Don't answer using today's created construct of terms but rather using the historical ethmology of the words as guide!

    I contend that in the historical usage of the terms, neither side who use these terms (co-op) for themselves truly fit the term liberal and that bothsides more fit the historical ethmology and even contemporary definitions in the conserve context. The reason bothsides pretend the illusion of difference is that the voter thinks (manipulated to believe) they want a multi choice of Wendy's, McDonald's, BurgerKing, Sonic, Jack-n-the-Box, SteaknShake or my personal favorite Rhea's or a Varsity Glorified and ChiliSlaw Dog. Uh, you can't get those last 2 where you live? Life must be a complete 8itch!

    But in truth when you walk into that voting booth and pick between the so-called "liberal" candidate and the "conservative" candidate, you're not picking from a variety like choosing a different hamburger joint but in truth you've just picked for yourself a plate of ...............!

    And then after making your selection, you'll to the death defend just how juicy and delicious it is never realizing you're all eating the very same thing! Reminds me of the 1980's Genesis song "Land of Confusion" as the title does rightly describe what we are.

    Thanks and I'm certain in this place your view is a very minority opinion but then I don't help the cause either. On purpose!

    That is true and why I weed out all the retoric. You, on the other hand offer an inteligent debate and present facts from both sides. I enjoy and respect a spirited exchange of ideas here minus the name-calling

    On Tuesday, Pelosi told reporters in San Francisco that "people have been active in expressing their disagreement." Sometimes those expressions have risen "to the level of threats or violence," she said, explaining that she was not allowed to comment on her own situation.
    Rose Riggs, a neighbor of Giusti in a public housing complex in the city's Tenderloin district, said she saw two plainclothes and two uniformed officers take him away in zip-tie cuffs. Riggs, 62, said Giusti was known for engaging in heated political debates with others in the building.
    "He was not one of my favorite people. He had a real attitude problem," she said.
    Neighbor Greg Little, 53, said he also saw officers take Giusti away.
    "He was real quiet when they took him out. He wasn't combative," Little said.
    Sister Lorna Walsh, community operations manager of the Mercy Housing complex where Giusti lives, said he had lived in the subsidized housing for almost 10 years. She would not comment further.
