“Maybe someone (somewhere) will realize that there are some sick and disturbed individuals out there... and these people need help... Not more paperwork...
Gun control as a way to prevent tragedy is an exercise in futility.
Look at the middle east, if they can't get guns, they'll simply use improvised explosive... what then? Ban household cleaner and fuel???”

“It will be interesting to see what will happen in Quebec in the next federal election...
- The NDP was a one time protest vote... there won't be many left after the next election... specially with the work in their ridding (or lack there off)
- The Bloc will be back in the game, with the support of the PQ
- The Liberals will make some gains in Montreal
And since many Quebecers are starting to realize that being permanently in the opposition isn't exactly a good thing... it will be interesting how many will be voting Conservatives.”

“Trudeamania... I always thought that was going to be the final nail in the Liberal's coffin.
Seriously, while he might be a nice and cool young man, he's not exactly the kind of guy I want running the party... never mind the country.”

“Yes I agree, but he's the the type that will suck all the NDP seats out of Quebec in the next election. Leaving them (NDP) in a third party status, as they should be, and the Conservatives with another majority government.”

“The cronyism and tenure inside the Liberal party is what has made the party irrelevant. The party does not actually belong to liberals anymore. Mr. Trudeau's vision, approach, team and leadership is far more sophisticated than his boyish looks. Don't be fooled...true moderates finally have a representative to speak and lead on there behalf. Let us align our support accordingly...Trudeau really is our Obama.”

“I think society took a wrong turn somewhere down the line.
As a kid, when a police officer talked to you, you answered the question with a "yes sir, no sir"... if you were impolite to them, the news would somehow make it to your parents... and you'd be in 'real' trouble.
Fast forward to 2012, it's somehow OK and acceptable for them insult them and resist arrest... and one of them resist too much and get a few bruise, they call it police brutality...”

“People who have earned and deserve respect tend to get it.
Cowards you walk around in bullet-proof vests, crewcuts and 90s sunglasses? Not so much.”
“Exactly, why engage in military warfare... when you can just take over the world using economic means...
If China wants to flex its muscle, it would simply stop buying US treasury bonds, or worst yet, it would start selling them...”

“China has put itself in a precarious position. It has to grow its economy at about 8% just to keep its people from starving. The rest of the globe could quite easily reduce its dependence on China, which would crash the Chinese economy. The problem with joining the world community is that you become more dependent on the world, than the world becomes dependent on you.
China's $1.5 Trillion in US debt would be bought up pretty quickly by other entities. China doesn't have nearly the bite on America that you might think.”

“Must be something in the water...
On a more serious note, wonder if the nutcase (if caught) will turn out to be known to police... and have a lengthy violent track record... It will be interesting to see if our hug a thug legal system will want to give him/her another chance...”
