Re: America Today - Teachers Arming in Schools

No Mr TJ, a polite society is a well educated society, look around the world and you will understand. On the other hand a society run by the gun-carrying uneducated cowboys is a massacre waiting to happen. Have a nice safe day without guns, AK-47, M16, AR-15.....

Re: Canada Politics

According to the NDP constitution the official name of the party is The New Democratic Party of Canada, no where the word socialist appears, therefore i assume that that qualifier was added to reflect your ( Mr. LYM ) U of T bias. Thank you. Words still mean something.

Did Mr. Jagmeet Singh called himself << the leader of the [size=150]socialist[/size] NDP,>> ? Or is it your U of T bias ?

Re: Worries rise as baht scales six-year high...

<< foreign things become less expensive >> i am not so sure about that. I look at foreign food at Big C or Tops and the prices continue to go up when they should come down. A lot of profiteering from the strong baht.

Re: U.S. Politics

The surge in exports from Vietnam, Cambodia, Pakistan, etc etc... come from Chinese companies having temporary relocated to these countries and in many cases with their Chinese employees.
