This is why it is so hard to discuss gay-related anything. The conversation always spirals into an existential debate about sexual morality. I dub this J.J.'s Law. The entire premise of my original argument was based on a proposition no deeper than "homosexuality is controversial." Even in...

Your comment, "Maybe those 'gay politicians' have experience in politics and can do the job regardless of their sexuality," makes absolutely no sense in the context of what is being discussed here. It's rude to just come along and post "what you want when you want" when other peo...

You don't just jump into a forum post having only read the subject title and then spit out some random comment. Have a bit of respect for the people that are tying to have a serious discussion here.

Maybe you should actually read what I wrote before making stupid trite comments.

Indeed, the Founders did a little too well on that mark, and fundamental reforms (notably on economics and the humanization of Blacks) virtually require systemic collapse to occur (Civil War, Depression, Second World War). Regardless of what the Americans might "think" or elect their repr...

I am in no way discounting the fact that European culture is, on the whole, significantly different (as in, more liberal) than mainstream American culture. Obviously there is more than enough polling data to prove that. My point was more that we should not discount institutional factors as well when...

One of the reasons I started blogging on Filibuster was to stimulate more conversation with my readers about contemporary political / cultural matters, something which I have always greatly enjoyed. However, I have yet to figure out how to allow normal, blog-style "comments" to my posts, s...

Hey, I am working on a project about regional foods in Canada and thought this forum would be a good place to go for some help. I am admittedly very ignorant of the food scene in Quebec, but growing up I seem to recall hearing about some sort of traditional Quebec meal of something like beans... and...

Despite being the country's most successful NDP leader, Doer would actually be too conservative to lead the federal NDP. It's a testament to how stupidly far-left the Layton NDP has gotten that former members of Doer's own government run as Liberals in federal elections and make much about the diffe...

It's funny that "officially" Canada and the United States did not have full diplomatic relations until 1947 . Though that was more a product of Canadian colonialism than antagonism between the two countries. Another good question to ask is when did British troops leave Canada? Because tha...

Hey, everyone. I am just working on a project for my site. I am trying to get a sense of what kinda cliches, trademarks, symbols, lankmarks, and reputations people associate with their individual provinces. So, if you had to pick five things your province is "known for" what would they be? I'll star...

I agree that we should have an elected head of state, like Matrix says, but I don't think we should use the name "Governor General" after the position becomes elected. The term "Governor General" represents Canada as a colony; a nation that had to be "governed" by a foreign person sent from England ...

I accept the fact that Canada joining the US is not the most likely thing in the world to happen. Though I will always support this goal, my bigger passion is trying to encourage Canada's government to reform so it is more like America's, and thus better. A lot of Canadians seem to think if they adm...

The Canadian government is based on a lot of polite fiction and outright myths, most of which have been repeated by Trackratte. Myth one- the Queen is Canadian Reality- the Queen is most certainly not Canadain. The government can give her all the titles they want, but the fact remains she is a forei...
