“Maybe the fact that people in Montreal do not consider education a privilege, but a right, is one of the reasons why on average they have a very highly educated populace?”

“Check your facts. Students don't necessarily graduate. Did you know Quebec has the highest high school dropout rate in the country?”

“Those are two different points, WF. First, I don't accept your assumption that Montrealers are a "highly educated populace". Maybe in comparison to Shawinigan, but they are a bit below average on most scales for large cities. Seond, post-secondary education in North America has never been a right. That word, right, by the way, is reserved. If Montrealers want to make it a right, fine, then let's see them shell out for it in taxes for the rest of the country to see. Nothing like sunlight to make things clear. There is way, way too much rent seeking in Canada.”

“Winterfox : You do not understand the History of Canada or the Promise to Queen Victoria.
Canada is tied to the Crown Historically . Until 1947 Canadians were British Suibjects and
carried British Passports. British does not mean English. British is the name for all citizens of the Empire. ( Now Commonwealth ) Queen Elizabeth is in fact a Canadian Citizen and has a Canadian passport. When Elizabeth passes away Canada should consider a referendum on keeping or doing away with the Crown, but understand that
legally Our Constitution would be open for debate, which would bring a whole cascade of
legal problems. Here is a thought for you : The Canadian Border as it now exists was not created by Canada but mandated by Washington ! Do some resaerch into that small item
and you will clearly understand why Canada and the Crown became entwined together.”
“They were sending a message when they were booing the American anthem. If the shutters over your eyes are too wide to realize what 8 years of Bush did to the rest of the world.. Hundreds of thousands of deaths in the middle east only being one of them. Than I am sorry for you.
Everyone knows they were booing to make a statement not to bash every single American out there. I am sorry it got your panties in a bunch.”
“Him being an analyst doesn't make him ignorant. Acting like he is surprised that Fox is twisting the facts is not being honest. You don't think behind closed doors when he is talking to other reporters they didn't just all roll their eyes and say.. "There goes Fox News again"”
Barbara Hill Bissonnette on Mar 22, 2011 at 10:18:36
“His not being an analyst is important. He was responding to a direct question about human shields. It`s not his job to call out Fox while he`s covering a war zone. Calling out Fox should be Howie Kurtz`s job, but he rarely does it.”
“Wow.. This is very hypocritical from CNN and this reporter.. Only call out Fox news lies when you are involved in them. Saying he doesn't expect lies from American journalists.. Don't tell me he doesn't know what Fox is up to and has been up to for years..
Only calling them out when your name is mentioned is what is hypocritical..”

“He`s a war correspondent, not a media analyst. He called them out when he KNEW in this instance that what they said was a lie. Interesting take on it, tho Winter.”
“I saw actually watched your TED talk were you say basically the same thing as what's written here. As someone who has spent his childhood / teen years playing games.. I can tell you that they aren't all roses and chocolate like you make them sound.
There are very casual gamers who account for most gamers.. People who will play angry birds or tetris on their smart phones.. Then there is the hardcore gamer.. people who neglect their real life friends, family, kids or jobs and play WoW or any other addictive games out there.. (Being a former WoW'er as well as playing other mmo's i personally know there are A LOT of addicted gamers which the game is affecting in a negative way).
The subject is definitely not as rosy as you present it.. And i think you know that. Balance is the key.”
“There are no proven chemical imbalances in the brain for depression. That is a bogus lie pushed by big pharma. Don't believe me? Check for yourself.”

“I don't believe you and yes they have identified genes indicating depression, as well as other mental illnesses. Researchers have also used brain mapping, mri, pet, other scans to show the physical differences in the brains of those that have chemical imbalances and those who do not. Check for yourself?”

“"Don't believe me? Check for yourself." Why not be so kind as to share the source of your great wisdom? What you said is "you do the math" from the 90's.”

“I've studied enough neurobiology to know you're totally wrong. There are several chemical imbalances that are easily identified, 5-HTTT is one.
BTW, just the way you stated "There are no proven chemical imbalances in the brain for depression. " shows you don't know very much about neurochemisty.”
“The fact that all media leads back to only a handful of people/companies makes this a sad day. I will be looking for another independent news blog to start getting my news from.”

“And there are many good ones, like Correntewire and Common Dreams. Go to those and other sites to get the most informed news. No reason to go to HP, anymore. Heck, if people want corporate-sponsored news they can turn on the t.v.”
“The problem with this is that sex offender accusations are often brought on by the accuser in a game of he said she said. How many people would innocently get castrated because a 15 year old'ish with a sense for the dramatic decides to lie to get attention? Castration.. is permanent and cannot be undone 5 years down the road when the 15 year old grows a brain and a conscience and recants her rape statements.
Do serious sex offenders deserve to get castrated? Hell yes.. Can we trust to legal system to do a good job making no one innocent gets castrated? #$%$ no!”
