Would you say people like Dr MLk jr make fatuous points? That's absurd! People who make a stand for freedom do so at great risk to themselves. You should allow people to speak and have a voice even if you don't agree with them. Not attack them!
I'm attacking ideas, but I DO think you personally have an unaddressed fatuous streak.

Are you acquainted with this man?

P.S. I'm not so sure that Canada has such high corporate tax rates. This article puts the US as the most expensive.

That seems so on the surface, but those rates are really meaningless because most are uncollectable due to loopholes in the Tax Code and and corporate practices like the "Double Irish" and "Double Dutch" that hide trillions in untaxed profits overseas (almost $7 Trillion at last estimate). Rates could go down IF the loopholes were closed.

Silly, isn't it?

"nteresting. We still have some issues to do with equality here though. For example, men who have had sex with another man in the past 5 years cannot give blood (only recently changed from not being able to give blood if a man has had sex with a man since 1960-something), which is ridiculous for the blood services are always complaining that they don't have enough blood and test every batch anyway. Seems as good a time as any to mention the petition going around here. If any of you could sign, please take the time to do so: http://www.thepetitionsite.com/947/369/732/bl ...

Topix seems to have blown it with its new format, which refuses to let me reply. In any case, I was also going to mention that Canada still has a different age of consent for anal intercourse (straight or gay) than it does for vaginal.

gay men should NOT be allowed to give blood. I guess everyone elses rights stop where the gay persons feelings begin. this is crossing the line!! public safety is more important than your feelings!

That too, there are a few other things as well, but minor things that can be looked into at a later date.

Public safety?
There is no chance of infected blood getting into the system due to the screenings they perform on each batch.

It's impeding on OUR rights.

It's discrimination and nothing else.
A prostitute can give blood.
A man who has sex with a different woman every day can give blood.

Besides, would you rather we just lied in order to give blood?
There's no reason for the ban, simply because when questioned, the donor can just lie about it.
