    Good! But you will not ignore any of my posts. You cannot stop replying. You always try to have the last word. I do realize it. Your last post proved it. It also proved that you can only resort to ...

    You lie again. Look at my post above: "You were unable even to explain in your own words what journalism is. I would have no problem explaining what engineering is -- including electrical ...

    All lies. I can access all my posts because I don't post a lot. I store most of them separately from DPR. All of them are stored by many countries. Anything anyone writes on the Internet is kept ...

    You could not answer any question so you resorted to nothing but personal insults. And you do copy and paste with the same grammatical and spelling errors from years ago time after time. John1940

    I have a very high regard for Sweden. It is also a country that has very low CO2 emissions from its electrical grid. Its numbers are about as low as ours in Ontario's grid. Quebec's are the lowest ...

    If anyone tried to kill my wife or any member of my family, they'd do it at their own peril. What would you do, talk to the attacker about human rights? My biggest violation against the law in my ...

    I do not get Fox News on my Shaw Direct (Canadian) satellite package. It would add to the cost. The Emptywheel article must be a joke, right? I hope you don't believe any of it. However, it does ...

    Using your brain? Instead of spending all this time trying to tell Americans how to fix their health care system it would make much more sense to help people in very poor countries.  Look at how ...

    Hitler declared war on the USA a few days after Japan attacked Pearl Harbor. That was his biggest blunder. The USSR did almost nothing in the Pacific theater of WW2. Did your history books in East ...
  • The answer is many tens of millions. Even more than in Canada. I have never heard any refugee from Vietnam or Syria talk about press freedom or human rights and freedoms. I have known quite a few ...
  • Please explain what journalism is in your own words. Don't copy anything and don't say you have no time. I'm willing to learn what journalism is.
  • I always respect your thoughtful replies even when we disagree.
  • You cannot answer for yourself. You just copied from The Intercept. And you often complain about parrots. I know.  You are a wanna-be journalist who knows very little about journalism. What a load ...
  • Answer the question! Or admit that you cannot do anything about it either. Sure, CNN and your other sources. You have sounded like too many other victims of the same sources, you sounded like the ...
  • That is true. I can only help the living. That is what the family lost. They were caught between Assad and the rebels. Both sides seem to hate ISIS. Now they are starting a new life in Canada and ...
  • Your keep telling me that I have been brainwashed and live in a bubble. That is ridiculous. Have you talked to any refugees from Syria recently? We are part of a group helping a refugee family of ...
  • I agree that a profession could teach those brainwashing amateurs. Are you looking for a job?
  • Who are you to judge? Are you a journalist? You did it again further down. I think that the Saudis will eventually become more free in their own, albeit slow, way. It will take decades. CNN does ...
  • Is this better?
  • In my experience it's worth learning more instead. Even a guy who is 77 can still learn new things. I do every day or week. True. Yes, but you call it THE Iraq war. That means that there was only ...
