Sorry you feel that way Virginia, but I believe that feeling is brought on by what you see in the media. The media reports mainly negative things, because negative sells. (Hurricane.. how many people die. Shooting.. how many people die ) Not very much positive. BUT!!! there are approximately 7.5 billion people in the world. That's 7,500,000,000 folks. Out of that number, the number of negatives that you see are small. They do not report the good people. The magazines do not report good stories, only sensational bad stories. The ones that will make you say "Oh how horrible", and buy the magazine to see the rest of the story. News on TV also knows what will keep people tuned in.
Read a small town newspaper.. Front page news.." Local Scouts raise $5,000 for cancer research." or "Man delivers beautiful baby in car as baby would not wait to get to hospital" Small town news is (I have found, more positive than National news)
The USA should do nothing military. China and Russia are allies of North Korea, and if the US attacks, they will retaliate. China has said that if North Korea attacks, they will attack North Korea. If you are worried about the people, then drop the sanctions, and perhaps provide food etc. to help the people.
Personally, I think China will arrange for Kim's death if he keeps testing atomic weapons.
I have to agree with you. Read this morning in the paper that the Hollywood classic "Gone With The Wind" will no longer be shown in Memphis, because the theatre board has deemed it insensitive to the larger audience, they say "historical revisionism glorifying slavery"
Does this mean that any movie about the past with slaves in it will be banned?
How about the History of Greece.. they lived well due to slave labour.. do we no longer teach the history of Greece?
PC is completely out of hand.
Yes, I trust my government. I have no fear of federal agents, or of replying to a federal agents questions.
As far as the country, I trust my government to keep us out of unnecessary wars etc. And to be on good terms with any trading partners.
But you must remember, we have the Queens representative looking out for us (Governor General) and he can stop any law being passed, (has not yet been done) ( the Provincial viceroys are able to reserve Royal Assent to provincial bills for the governor general; this clause was last invoked in 1961 by the Lieutenant Governor of Saskatchewan.)
