First off i would like to say that the protestors did a good job by demonstrating their message in a relatively peaceful manner, and for that i commend them. Personally i think that b...

Re: "Protesters" aim to disrupt the olympics

I know this thread is old. However i thought id add my two cents. Although i completely disagree with why these people are protesting i believe in their fundamental right to do what they are doing. What drives me up the wall is when some individuals at these protests call Canada a "police state" due...

Went down to the show on friday and it was pretty sweet! Lots of people down there checking out the new stuff for the coming season for 2010. One of my favourite bikes was actually the new 650r, made me kind of jealous as the new version has a re-vamped front end and a new digital cluster. Among the...

Clifford Olsen also got the police to pay a large sum of money to his wife in exchange for him telling the police where the dead children were. He is the rare exception to my feeling against the death penalty. He killed so many children, seemed proud of the fact, is not repentent, will never be rel...

I have changed my view on Capital Punishment. I am now FOR Capital Punishment. Many reasons for this. There are many attrocities that happen, but none worse to me than these repeat pedophiles and rapists, who get sent to prison for a very short sentence, get fed, watered and health care, re-educate...

After being in my criminology and justice studies classes it comes up fairly often in discussions. If your for capital punishment please don't use the saying "an eye for an eye" witho...

Why do you constantly rev your bike going 5 mph through campus? Do you have some idle control problem, or is this more of a compensation thing?

Jesus Camp

I know this documentary has been around for awhile but i just finished watching it a few days ago. Has anyone seen this? I'm all for freedom of religion but this camp is getting a little extreme.
