Well, thank goodness for Freedom to Choose, right? Max, not sure if the Crown suits you, but the casual attire is spot on!

Re: “How much is enough...?

Leslie, when one has to sink to the level of using common and vulgar language, instead of engaging in intelligent rhetoric, one cannot expect to be taken seriously.

Leslie, Bruce, Nonno et al, thank you for your responses. Have I touched a Liberal nerve?

Re: “How much is enough...?

STOP MAX- Serial Abuser of Freedom of Speech and Expression: the evidence exposed!
How much is enough, ​G.D. Maxwell​​ ask​s​. ​Well, his last article was the last straw​ that broke the Conservative camel-back.​
Max's latest acid rant in his column in last week​'​s Pique was quite simply, pathetic and crass.
Freedom of Speech-yes! Freedom of Expression - yes! But overtly attacking our Prime Minister​, ​using petty language and amateur psycho-analysis ​shows poor penmanship and horrible taste.​ In fact, Max may do well to return to Journalism 101 and remember what is required for a Grimoire.​
Express your opinion about politicians and politics, certainly​ Max, ​but to so blatantly insult our Prime Minister's Office​ is subversive and embarrassing for journalists who are in control of their egos and idiom.
Prime Minister Harper is a public servant, agreed. However, ​what delusional idea leads ​you to believe ​you can actually write "screw you" to the Prime Minister of Canada​? ​[That the Pique would so easily print this peasant logic is ​equally ​surprising and an insult to global community journalism. ​I shall contact the lupus in fabula, "The Tyee", in due course.]
​Supreme Court of Canada ​Chief Justice​,​ Madam Justice Beverley Mc​C​lachlin​,​ is a public servant, yet I doubt that ​you, a former officer of the court, would dare write​,​ "screw you"​,​ to Her Ladyship in public media.​ You know she would tear you another one and your days of ad-lib journalism would be over.

So, to balance the scales of public opinion, as is required by the law of karma, here is a "best of compilation" of ​1​0 reasons why we want to rid ourselves of the ego-maniac otherwise known as GD Maxwell​:
1. Giving our local and international readers the idea that Canada is a weak nation with poor leadership​, when in fact, ​Stephen ​Harper is the first PM in a very long time who possesses the testicular fortitude to lead Canada into a new age of global collaboration and prosperity.
2. Infusing his opinion with histrionic drama that detracts from the many brilliant achievements in our community and country.
3. Leaving readers with nausea and a dire sense of despair instead of enlightening and educating them about our magnificent country and the host of heroes who keep us safe every day.
4. Attacking and maligning authority instead of celebrating the victories won daily by our military, law enforcement, search and rescue, the medical, legal and industrial ​arenas​.
5. Doing injustice to community journalism by hogging the last page of the Pique with his constant drivel.
6. Insulting the intelligence of Conservatives, Liberals, NDPs and Green Party members who benefi​t on a daily basis from a prosperous economy.​
7. Inciting our youth to disrespect authority.
8. Threatening national security by publically defaming Canada's primary political office with impunity.
9. Misleading and mistreating the public by stating that our PM is taking a kick at Canada when in fact ​M​axwell is projecting his own ​hostility onto his audience.
10. Destroying any opportunity to leave readers feeling good, inspired or enlightened on the last page of an otherwise educational and pleasant publication.
Stop GD Maxwell!

Re: “Letters to the editor for the week of July 31st

As a self-confessed "Christian realist", Mr. Roberts should read his Bible more, and liberal fiction less. One expects a realist to report facts and Christians to speak out against terrorist organizations such as Hamas.

In a speech in 1958 Buber, aged eighty, while affirming the factual reality of the State of Israel, referred to "the most pernicious of all false teachings, that according to which the way of history is determined by power alone. . . . while faith in the spirit is retained only as mere phraseology." Buber maintained that "he who will truly serve the spirit must seek to make good all that was once missed: he must seek to free once again the blocked path to an understanding with the Arab peoples [in] a peace of genuine cooperation."

Before any peace negotiations can be realized, or any cooperation expected between Israeli and Arab people, tyrannical terrorist organizations like Hamas need to be eradicated. Mr. Roberts writes to invoke sympathy for the Arab refugees in Gaza and fails to understand that Hamas purposely attacks Israel from Gaza in order to make Israel appear to be the aggressor. While Hamas, the actual aggressor, cowardly launches attacks from within schools, mosques, clinics and hospitals.

The IDF forewarns the people of Gaza before attacks, restores power after Hamas takes out power lines and sees to it that Gazan casualities are tended to in Israeli hospitals.

As Prime Minister Harper so eloquently said, "The indiscriminate rocket attacks from Gaza on Israel are terrorist acts, for which there is no justification."

If Mr. Roberts truly seeks to promote peace between these two peoples, a noble gesture, he would be well-advised to shift his public denunciation of our government's support for Israel towards educating his fellow Canadians on the facts and not his opinion.
