    I am attempting to be the last person to use Facebook, MySpace, or any other of such pages. So far, I'm doing pretty well avoiding them.

    I get several emails each week telling me that folks have listed me as a friend, or are waiting for me to join Plaxo, or linkedin.

    So far, I'm not on any of them. I'm invisible to all of them.

    I kinda like that.

    So, when someone is murdered (because they had no licensed firearm to defend themselves) you just match the bullet, go to the house and arrest the perp, right?

    As for the licensing of trades, I see how well that has eliminated bad work on Mike Holmes show. Apparently, you guys still have just as much bad work, but a LOT of government. Hmm. I guess all that licensing isn't as effective as people intended it to be.

    I'm just sayin'....

    Take a look that at the murder statistics there TB....it's a mindset, not a wild west show that we need to pack guns to protect us against our murderous neighbours....as in pretty much every other civilized country that doesn't have the right to bear arms entrenched in their constipation.

    As for the level of training in trades.....your level of ignorance of issues outside of your own country is systemic with the country you live in so the rest of the world accepts that.....when you do what you did, you get what you got....

    PTL.......jusy sayin......!!!!!

    PS... Congratulations on your new Healthcare Bill.....nice to see you move up to the 19th century with helping your fallen and downtrodden...PTL

    Doug, I know you are a lib, but could you please make sense?

    My assertions are these, to capsulize it for you:

    1) licensing firearms does nothing to reduce murders. If a gun is not handy, something else, like a knife, is usually within arm's reach. For example, there is genocide in Rwanda, and most of that was machetes. Further, licensing does nothing to help solve gun crimes. In the US, there are many living people who were able to stop an evildoer because they had a firearm, and used it legally.

    2) According to a Canadian program that we can see here, a) trade licensing has not eliminated bad work, as there is plenty of it, and b) Mr. Holmes had to start a foundation to get young people into the trades, because just like here, kids don't want to do any real "work."

    By the way, we have the fattest, richest "downtrodden" of any country on earth. Any poor person in any country is happy to come here, as they are flooding our cities. I think you guys have the same problem, too. I'll bet I would not recognize Toronto today.



    I like you Doug, but you have to start looking at the Big Picture.

    Bret, Gruppys.

    On a lighter note I wrote my mid term today. 82%. Not bad for 104 questions. That would be a pass on the interprovincial. Thanks to everyone who sent out some words of encouragement.

    Next week hopefully i'll have the same luck on my CFC card.
