Your claims lack a sense of authenticity in the USA, Pete. Leftist, for example. To a Canadian Firefighter, is a "leftist" a guy who aims his slap shot at the upper left corner of the net on a hockey breakaway? Ray

Think he could teach Mike how to do it, Lyle? Give him a tractor, and watch him turn a golf course into vegetable garden. Give him a laptop, and watch him turn a casino into a networking hub. Right? Ray

Susan, The Mayor, public school administers, firemen, police, community leaders, representatives of various faiths meet once a year to promote unity and support various charities. The high school chorus sang. Amazing event. I don't think you'd have understood the talk--but it would have helped you a great deal if you had. Ray

Eddie, Just spent the morning at a community prayer breakfast, and heard a Monsignor explain how he could see Christ in Buddhists, Hindu's, Islam, and even real atheists. How one could (should) discuss without having to (or even wanting to) agree. . . . Susan should have been there. Ray

Rebecca, I'm not sure that materialism and atheism necessarily go together, and it's a mistake to try to pigeon hole scientists with either of them. My colleagues are diverse; here in the USA they might prefer to be labeled "agnostic"--if any thing at all. Our theories fall apart not unlike the various flavors of Religion, but these days more unsure than for many decades. We're

Susan, Confrontation is not discussion. I've commented directly, because there's no other way. I suspect Melissa spent considerable time, drafting a thoughtful, diplomatic post, getting only your usual reflexive response. Come in, come in from the cold--to warm non confrontational discussions. Ray

Warwick, You may have a deeper and better understanding of democracy and the United States than me, but when it comes election time, I vote for candidates that go to Washington, D.C., and you vote for candidates that go to Ottawa. Ray

Susan, Melissa has made some good points--suggested directions for conversations. You respond with your usual evangelical atheism--which isn't even real atheism. You must find a way to do better. Ray

Susan, The words are important tools for introspection. This is often where Christians go on the fringes of Religious thought. It's not Christian--but it's not anti Christian, either. Ray

Americans are involved in Governmental processes at all levels all the time and associate with regional perspectives. Media influences go only so far--there's always a reality check. Living it and watching it feel differently. Ray

From what I've read about her, I'm not convinced Ann Coulter believes any of that crap, Paul. It's just a role she has chosen (or been given) to play as a road map to a career as an entertainer of sorts--and she plays it well. What are we left with--here in the states? Garbage (verses 3 and 4) Ray

Warwick, Any perceived disparagement of Pete as a Canadian or a firefighter is unintended. What I'm commenting on is his perspective and (lack of) authority for his statements about Americans. At GHMB, Pete has provided ample evidence of his years of service and family support in Canada. If he were an American, I'd respond differently to him. Ray

you remind us of the basis for your "advanced" analysis: You're a Canadian firefighter gossiping around the fire pole. Sociological analyses need to be laid out clearly with links, experiences, and other reports. Ray

Paul, Is she really that interesting? When supposed "right wing" pundits drop the level of discourse this low, there's really nothing interesting to talk about. When one compares what such pundits talk about to real government in action, it's a revelation. Immigration laws, for example, have been continuously revised since the United States came into existence. Current laws a

Government is not a TV show, and elections at Federal, State, and City/local levels are how we carry out political change. Once you pass Gov. 101, it may sink in, Pancho. We live with fellow Americans who are and aren't Trumpers every day, and we can't turn them off to play a video game--or toss a boomarang. Ray

Brian, Sounds like Republican State Senators will be wearing targets on their backs. I'd think that Democrats would have a field day identifying legislation with strong Republican House support that Mitch is sitting on for Donald. Then there's that impeachment vote. . . . Ray

Susan, You're talking to yourself--not to me. Let me assure you that I have no "faith beliefs,"nor is there any such thing as "objective evidence." Your strongly felt statements to the contrary expose the nonexistent foundations you have in science and philosophy. A new Christian convert may start with a 100% faith belief--or something like it--but that doesn't last

Susan, I don't have a "faith belief," but I do have a "personal epistemology" that gets updated all the time. The latest idea that I'm integrating comes from "Fantastic Fungi"--learning that Evolution requires cooperation before it allows competition. I'm still trying to absorb that into my epistemology. Ray

Paul, IMO the proposed budget will be mostly discussed at the State and local levels, not the national level. Neither Shumer nor Pelosi will be directly involved in the campaign discussions. Trump might be able to skate through with lies and generalizations, but not the Senators and Congresspersons. Local interests must be met. The end result will be far different from Trump's proposal
