This is off topic:

I noticed alot of people apoligizng for rambling. I think that rambling is great! Even though it sometimes gets a bit confusing, especially when its just the written word, Ive found that rambling and ranting are vital to expressing a point. When your thoughts go right into words, you're writing what you really feel, unedited, no second-thoughts, and I like that. Something true about it.

So heres to rambling, and a great thread! Cheers!

Society begets government. Anarchist theory is actually just a pseudo-intellectual state of denial, an idealistic illusion that can never be more than a wholly unfulfilled dream. Thus, it is a counter-productive measure that actually weakens, rather than improves the progress of society as government is inevitable in the maintenance of civilization. Therefore, it is infinitely more effective to pursue political upheaval through the system, rather then against the system. For despite all of its flaws, both Democracy and Capitalism are still rooted within the people themselves by rational and realistic means. That is not to say I advocate the status quo, but instead, a moral pursuit to right the endless wrongs brought on by the evils of human nature, via an unintimidated, undaunted, unmitigated spirit of liberty and justice for all, rather then the destructive hypocrisy of your so-called "revolution."

i am damn proud to be a mutt! lol it's funny though--no one can ever tell my ethnicity which is mostly asian and black. they all think i'm either hawaiian or chinese or something other than what i am...but of course that's not who i am...ok digressing sorry....so yeah, being prous of your race is not a crime, but thinking that you are better than people becuz of this is wrong---evil, really. ok i dunno if that was brought up cuz i really didn't feel like reading all these damned posts lol j/k... rolleyes.gif

If I said I was proud to be white....









I'd be lying tbh I really could care what goes over the top of me as long as I say the same underneath, (sorry sounds like a bit of a cliche) but being proud is fine but when you think your better because you that race is when things start to go abit iffy unsure.gif . I'm quater welsh but no blood involded cos my family moved there and moved back, but my sirname "SIRET" is quite common in le france, but tere is a river "Siret" running through Ukraine and Romania and I would love to be from either of those countries grin.gif , especailly romania.

Now I AM sorry about ramballing cos this is pretty crapply writen.

And trust me, the ones who bitch about seeing corporate logos are not the ones who volunteer for the Pride Committee, and probably dont even throw a toonie in a pail to help pay for the event. Pride is probably the ONLY celebration of its size in the country that is run entirely by volunteers. Other big parades are organized by fully paid staff. Any government funding is a fairly recent phenomenon for Pride.. and still it gets far less than some other events. If the Cons are still at the rudder of the country next year, I can tell you right here and right now that Pride will not get one cent in Federal funding.
Not only is corporate funding necessary, it demonstrates how far gay men and women have come in society that major banks are proud to sponsor our event.
I think a lot of men "of a certain age" look back fondly at small prides of 25 years ago because they themselves were 25 years younger and had waaaay more fun than they do today. Add onto that the fact many of them work for big bad corporations

This was a good thread in the two incarnations weve had since the new board began and i hope for this one to be as good, we just need demerit back in and a few others to rekindle their interest.

Pavel, your input too if youre not too busy.
