    When the tour reaches this stage, where the yellow jersey is all but won, I find it loses a little of it's interest. You know that barring a crash, Froome is going to win it by sitting in the middle...

    I'm not advocating the banning of religion. In fact, I would argue against that tactic, as I think it is the wrong approach in that the government shouldn't be telling us what to think. I also...

    I've had this same conversation with my very Catholic mother-in-law. She admits that there are serious problems in the church, she admits that not enough is being done, etc. Yet every Sunday she...

    I'm not going to turn this political, but actually you're correct. Whoever supports and votes in a political party should accountable for the results, but it goes both ways - Dems and Repubs. Not...

    The bolded part above is where I disagree with you. You really should do a bit of reading on what this scandal acutally involves, as it is obvious your not very familiar with what has happened...

    You're right, Catholics are not representative of all Christians, but I simply used that example as one of certain Christians perpetrating evil that didn't harken back to the Crusades or the...

    Nobody here is defending Islam or making the case that they are not currently the source of much evil in the world, but that doesn't change the fact that all religions are inherently irrational and...

    How about just eliminating religion of any type, everywhere? I would gladly support that crusade.

    Young cats usually don't get the older cat problems that cause them to drink a lot (kidney disease, diabetes, thyroid disease), therefore this is most likely to be something like an infection. The...

    I try to catch as much of the TDF as I can each year. I'm not as knowledgeable about cycling as you are, and although I do realize there is likely some doping going on, I am still absolutely...

    I'm not denying that certain areas in Canada are experiencing a housing crisis. I live in Vancouver where a tear down in most parts of the city will cost $1.5 million, but I think that causes are...

    Obviously I won't be voting, but I took the quiz for the hell of it, and scored very high for Sanders, but at the end it asked me if I wanted to sign up for a newsletter from Bernie Sanders. I have...

    Yeah, I don't understand people buying that ****. It's a false economy. No only are those places promoting horrible farming practices and disgusting animal welfare, but I believe that there are long...

    There is a distinction to be made between the use of antibiotics for disease treatment, and the chronic use of low levels of antibiotics as growth promotants. It was, and I'm guessing still is,...

    Our cup comes home every summer when the guys that win it bring it home, because, as I'm sure you're aware, hockey is just a means for us go down there and bring back millions of...

    As MIH pointed out above, this comparison is useless unless you also get rid of the murders committed by urban gangs, minorities, etc. in the European countries you are looking at.

    Not the best way of wording it. Do you mean among all adults in my general age range, or against my professional peers? I have no problem saying that amongst all adults in Canada, I would put...
