jeez louise..... 'effort' all you want, you ain't goin' nowhere!

"mirror, mirror on the wall"
And continue on to YOUR editing of the article to include the UNDERSCORING for emphasis.....
And you explain to me how this post (typical of things you personally post and state here that are very much anti-American and USA bashing), is NOT to be considered by mostly American and USA members here in SE to be baiting, taunting, and inflamatory. Please take into consideration that we are not coming to a CANADIAN forum and posting crap about your country every chance we get, but YOU are coming into CNET, which is based and owned and run in the USA by a USA company, and SMUGLY attempt to rag on us every chance you can.
Talk to me about how YOU are a kind, caring, and even worthy neighbor to any of us....on a personal level, because I don't believe that your fellow countrymen are anything at all like you. I've been to your country and the people I've met have never been anything but courteous and gentle; while you are obviously just the opposite, and I'm really glad I don't live near you or my property values would decrease rapidly.
I've come to the conclusion that your 14 week work year leaves you with too much time on your hands and far too many fewer friends to talk to. You obviously don't use the extra time you have for your hunting and fishing you claim to love so much because you are in here non-stop day-in-day-out deliberately disrupting a community that could have been a place for you to be welcomed in except for your hatred that has no outlet other than anonymity.
What a waste of a human being that otherwise shows partial intelligence.
And let your best be for your friend.
If he must know the ebb of your tide, let him know its flood also.
For what is your friend that you should seek him with hours to kill?
Seek him always with hours to live.
For it is his to fill your need, but not your emptiness.
And in the sweetness of friendship let there be laughter, and sharing of pleasures.
For in the dew of little things the heart finds its morning and is refreshed.
to my own opinion regarding somebody else's opinion. I don't use this forum as my own podium any more than the rest of the members do who post their own opinions. That's the whole idea of a podium, now isn't it? Everybody gets to step up to the plate and post their opinions. If I happen to disagree strongly with those other opinions, I should be able to say so just as strongly as they do.....after all, I AM a member here just like they are. So yes, it IS a podium for my personal views, just as much as it is for all the members.
I don't have the ability to remove my red M when I post unless I want to create a new (and forbidden) account just for that purpose. The red M carries over from all the rest of the forums I am a moderator in and I have no control over when it does or doesn't appear here.
99% of what I post is as a member....not as a Moderator. What I do behind the scenes in SE is as a Moderator. If people would understand that since it also pertains to the rest of the Moderators here, things might be a little easier for all to stop with the comments about how we should resign our Moderator status because they don't like what we say. Even the Moderators are subject to having posts removed by the other Moderators.....we are not given special treatment by each other and we don't get our feelings hurt when a post is removed when another Mod felt it was correct to do so.
When I post as a Moderator, it's obvious to all that that's the hat I have on at the time.
that your post (even its title) is all about him and his right to an opinion, not about the opinion itself. Don't you find it ironic that the industry that has indeed been so harsh on the Canadians about Mad Cow (probably in an effort to decrease competition) is now "hoist by their own petard?" It's ironic -- but it's also further eroding our balance of trade with the world, and that's not good. I happen to agree with the comments of the SecAg about the relative safety of beef vs. crossing the street -- but we should have taken the same view with Canada long ago, and didn't. To keep things in the agricultural realm, "sauce for the goose is sauce for the gander." The problem is that many Americans (apparently the majority) expect special treatment and respect by the world simply because we're Americans. It just doesn't work that way -- you generally reap what you sow.

The opinions expressed above are my own,
and do not necessarily reflect those of CNET!
not WHAT he posted, but rather the TONE used to post it that I find offensive to the max.....and you choose to leave his post stand the way it is without seeing it for what it was meant to be, coming from JP on a personal level rather than a newsworthy one.
I saw this story on CNN and ABC news yesterday afternoon, and felt that Canada had gotten a bad rap but before I had the chance to post my own personal comments about it and an individual apology for what happened with their meat market, JP decided to not post it as a news story but as a taunt with his own personal editing to do so.
is conditional to you for acceptance.....
Funny how some of you didn't hold to that same standard for Durbin's apology to our troops.......
What were your words before.....oh yeah.....'double standard'
Unfortunately, my apology to your country will be buried just as effectively as Durbin's was........
Are you saying you enjoy reading the 90% USA trashing posts that JP puts on the board? Personally I think if he hates the USA enough to spend all of his time looking for nasty things to say against us maybe it's time he looked for a Canadian forum or maybe even just a liberal forum so he can post his trash in comfort!
hes a troll period.
you take know pride in your country so be it.
just think if we all went to a public forum if candas have one and bashed them all the time.
and as to tonis replys there deserved , people who dont stand up let it continue to the anti american bs, so mk you should stand up or but out.
and yes you have a right to say what you say, the soldiers who fought fot your freedom died for you to whine.
but we allso have the right to to talkm back in defence of america.
dont like it the door swings both ways.
now i know ill get flack for this , but to bad im used to it.
we have a mod who is just like the anti usa group here, i dont see you saying DK please dont post this stuff, why the 1 sisdedness is typical
between criticism and suggestions and flat out bashing, taunting, baiting? Especially when that is the ONLY thing that a few particular posters do? You rarely, if ever, see them go into a thread that is neutral and just 'chit-chatting' and you NEVER see a post from them regarding any other country that is negative, and you NEVER see a post from them regarding the faults, flaws, and outright political maneuvering about their own country?
Come on, MK....even you can be more fair and unjudgmental than that.
