In his new job as head chaplain in the military, Brig.-Gen. John Fletcher will be overseeing the religious needs of Canada's troops, shoring up what the Defence Department calls its chaplaincy's “inclusive, welcoming culture.” As an openly gay member of the military and Anglican priest for more than two decades, it's an environment ...

What matters is who you are ... not what you are.
You see it in society, the law, religion and politics, which are all kept rightfully separated.

We can imagine how many YOU have.

That doesn't make it so, does it.

Smearing someone by baseless innuendo is CALUMNY.

Brig.-Gen. Fletcher is a career man. Maybe the US has gotten so desperate that they're recruiting and drafting prepubescent boys but the Canadian army isn't.

Your military isn't even large enough, nor strong enough, to guard your own borders or country (which is 98% snow anyways).

Hence, you depend on the U.S. for your "umbrella" of military protection.

Although you are one of the largest (by land and sea area) countries in the world, you have less than 70,000 military personnel, which ranks you 56th in the world. Your navy has only about 30 ships, and your air force has about 7 planes.

Singapore, Nepal, and Angola each have a larger military establishment than you do !

Uhh, that dependence goes both ways. The US has had preferred access to ALL of Canada's natural resources. We were your largest supplier of uranium for decades, and that includes your own, tiny domestic output, until the fall of the Soviet Union. Now it's about 50/50 between Canada and Russia.
We are your largest supplier of oil. We are your largest supplier of various other natural resources. All of which you have access to without worry of having to invest troops in country to keep the supplies secure.
Face it, your military strength is due, in part, to Canadian resources.
It was a trade-off agreement that basically started with the Dew Line.

General Jack D. Ripper may want to argue that point with you.

Well gee, instead of invoking an appeal to authority from someone I never herd of, why don't you argue his point for him?

Come to think of it, what the hell did your original post have to do with the thread title anyway?

Usually nothing at all.

That's just "Foxy". He's developmentally impaired.

Russell, the Canadian gay, goes into the doctor's office and has some tests run.

The doctor comes back and says,'Russell, I'm not going to beat around the bush. You have AIDS.'

Russell is devastated.'Doc, what can I do?'

'Eat 1 curry sausage,
1 head of Cabbage,
20 unpeeled carrots drenched in hot sauce,
10 Jalapeno Peppers,
40 walnuts and 40 peanuts,
1/2 box Of All Bran,
And top it off with a litre of prune juice..'

Russell asks bewildered,'Will that cure me, Doc?'

Doc says 'No, but it should leave you with a better understanding of what your arse is for.'

Tell me when this thread is updated:
