As this terrible week closes, and condolences pour in for the families of Warrant Officer Patrice Vincent and Corporal Nathan Cirillo, it is my wish to also offer you condolences on the loss of your sons as well. I am troubled with the polarizing language used by the media to describe your sons this week. I only imagine that the guilt, anger and shame you must already be feeling is only compounded by the hurtful language used to describe your boys. I understand that Mr. Zehaf-Bibeau especially has repeatedly asked for help, and was denied. I am so sorry that he went unanswered. As a nation we failed four men this week. Two of those four we continue to fail, by attaching labels and vilifying. I thought, mistakenly, that as Canadians we were somehow above that. I offer my...

I do not claim to be a professional writer or an expert on defamation law by any means. I simply want to share my opinion/experience when I was cyber-libelled and hopefully provide some information or help to other numerous victims of this crime. I am an immigrant to Canada, and as an immigrant I always relished in the immense privileges that I posses now as a Canadian citizen. I always took pride in the fact that this country offered me the freedoms to reach my potential and achieve all my goals and dreams. I also believed that as a law abiding, tax-paying Canadian citizen my rights and freedoms were protected by our Justice System. Unfortunately my beliefs shattered when I became a victim cyber-bullying , defamation-libel and breach of privacy . To this day I am speechless at the...

The Rt Hon David Cameron MP 10 Downing Street London SW1A 2AA Dear Mr. Cameron, I am writing in regards to the UK Government response to ISIL. I have spent the last few weeks and months horrified at the unfolding tale of ISIL and their progress through Iraq and the surrounding countries. I have often pondered as to what the appropriate response to this should be, with many tears shed and prayers cried out. Military action is certainly an appealing option, and a seemingly quick solution to the atrocities that have occurred. On the other hand, sitting back and not getting involved is equally appealing. Having said this, my conscience and Christian faith informs me that these two options cannot be the only ways to see peace in the Middle East. Whilst I agree in part...

To whom it may concern My family and I have been supporters and donors to the 'Save the Children' charity for a number of years. We have donated generously and respect and appreciate the work that your charity does. As of today, we will be withdrawing all financial support to your charity due to the inflammatory and provocative full page advert posted in a UK paper titled "In memory of the 373 children killed in Gaza". This is not a decision we have made lightly as we understand that ultimately it is the children who suffer as a consequence. We will be directing our donations to other charities that support children. We are particularly upset with the manner in 'Save the 'Children' has chosen to politicise the deaths of these children and capitalise on the tidal wave of anti-...

My name is Dr. Edward Freeman. I am a philosopher and antifascist (the latter, by extension, makes me an anticommunist as well). I write this because someone has to. And if not a philosopher, then who? With this, I want you to know that there are some of us in this land of the free who are fully aware of what you really are – a fascist through-and-through, albeit of a closet variety. I say this not because of your penchant for black leather garbs, your tendency to wallow in your self-righteous moralizing, your morbid obsession with the conception of manhunt, though these certainly are some of the outward manifestations of a fascist nature, but because I have good grounds for believing this to be the case. You proclaim that you believe in the presumption of innocence (Ei...

Dear NRSC, I am so disgusted at your work in helping to re-elect Thad Cochran in Mississippi. As a conservative, a *true* republican and a true American, I am fed up with the Republican party establishment. We don't want Thad Cochran. We don't need Thad Cochran. We want true leaders who believe the same self-evident conservative truths as the likes of George Washington. We want new leadership like Chris McDaniel. I see your website header says "building a new senate". Is that supposed to be a joke? Reelecting Thad Cochran is not building a new senate. Thad Cochran has been in Washington for decades, and he has done nothing to stop the liberal agenda. Rather, he has helped to push it forward. Republicans do not want senators like Cochran, and that is why he had to use smear tactics...

Department of Justice, My name is Daniel Herrick, a resident of Pennsylvania and natural born citizen of the United States of America. I am writing to you because the Pennsylvania Supreme Court has determined that the right to personal privacy protected by the Fourth Amendment to the U.S. Constitution no longer applies. Just over a month ago, in a 4-2 ruling, the PA Supreme Court determined that law enforcement officers no longer require a warrant to search a vehicle. Here are the details of the case as released by the media: • Two police officers pulled over a sport-utility vehicle driven by Shiem Gary because they believed its window tinting was too dark. • The officers then claimed they smelled marijuana coming from the SUV and that Gary told them there was "weed" in the...

Dear Sir, This is regarding the internal security of what is called as "Bharatmata" by every citizen of this country!! You said and it is evident that you respect and love this country as "Mother" and everyone including you and me call it as "Bharatmata"! Now, one question: who is the "Bharatmata"? Is it this soil or this air which flows in this country? I believe, it is every citizen, every human of this country. Every mother, every sister and and every daughter too!! But, what is happening to "Bharatmata" now? You are the PM. Aren't you aware that since quite a long, some rascals, some scoundrels have been doing the MOST HEINOUS SIN - "RAPE"? Those 6 years, 14 years, 15 years, 22 years victims are not the part of "Bharatmata"? Why there are no tears in the eyes of PM for this? Why...
