“No. A woman with her history of service over several decades has demonstrated through actions - not just words - that she is fair to all.

This was a quip. Nothing more”

“This isn't racism. You sound hysterical. Don't be a troll. If you don't like Olivia's platforms, say so. But to attack a woman with her history of public service to all people is just dim and shows you to be troll.”

“I'd rather my dime went to someone who needed it: perhaps kids who go to school hungry because mom's E.I. was stopped early? Or someone on a disability pension getting a little more of a livable benefit?

These guys are PAID - they can buy their own lunch - or brown bag it. This is entitlement at it's worse. It broke the LAW, and if you don't understand that, then I don't expect you to understand bigger principles.”

“You get my vote. And after decades of riding the subway, streetcars and buses in Toronto, I'll add, the guy/girl who doesn't bathe, who drank so much last night that even after bathing they still reek of alcohol, and people with gigantic strollers: leave the Cadillac version at home, lady, and take the little one.

Dogs have NEVER bothered me. NEVER. And exactly how do you expect us to travel with our pets if we don't own a car? Mine has to get to the vet sometimes, and while we will walk to the dog off leash park area in High Park, after 3 hours, we ride home. My dog is better behaved on the subway than many people.”

“Lots of sense of humour: I think our semi-tolerance for the jokes about Mayor Ford proves that. But as a Torontonian, it gets exhausting hearing how satisfied the rest of the country gets when something happens to the city.”

“Thank you for saying this. I'm really tired of people dumping on Toronto. Note: when Torontonians complain about snow, we don't expect other people to NOT complain. But apparently, unless we've got 15 foot high snowbanks, Torontonians are NOT allowed to complain at all. Even if there's no space to park our cars on the streets, because there's no budget and not enough equipment and crews to clear streets that don't usually get this much snow.

I grew upside Toronto, in small towns and cities, and experienced over-my-head snow banks plenty of years.”

“Look, HuffPo Editor, there's NOTHING in the following statement that has not been either substantiated or reported on, by others, to great detail. Or perhaps you don't understand the format?

Our mayor: hasn't met a moral principle yet that he can support. Illegal drugs? No problem. Drug dealers? Best friends. Suspected spousal abuse? Good times. Drinking & driving? Watch me! Lying through his teeth? Just tellin' it like he wants you to believe it. Threatening people? Just taking control of the situation. Smearing a reporter doing his job by implying he's a pedophile? They're all maggots anyway, according to him and his brother.

But actually support something like human rights? He couldn't buy a clue.

Why would anyone vote for this guy?”

“Happiness is a choice. I struggle with anxiety and depression, and I would still describe myself as happy, because I try to focus on the positives, and take joy from life. Sometimes I can't alter a mood, but I can look at that which pleases me and know that it does.

A swim in a lake at sunset. Having a baby fall asleep on me. Laughing with a friend.

Religion never brought me happiness, and in struggling to believe, I found myself compromising my reason. Choosing to accept religion, when I do not believe, made me feel inadequate. However, I am sure that if you do believe, and take part in your community, you have therefore acquired relationships, community & pre-made principles that can encourage happiness.”

“I think it still is, but there's some backlash going on that encourages people like Rob Ford to think they are speaking up for "the little guy". Well, only if you accept that the little guy feels the need to judge and belittle his neighbors, while doing worst crimes on "his personal time".

The real Canada, of tolerance and diversity, will always be here. We just need to make sure it's not drowned out by a few unthinking, bigoted ...”
BDSM Correlated With Better Mental Health, Says Study

“Look: It's NOT a disorder. NOT according to the DSM-IV which you referenced earlier. For your information, the DSM-IV states that: "The fantasies, sexual urges, or behaviors" must "cause clinically significant distress or impairment in social, occupational, or other important areas of functioning" in order for sexual sadism or masochism to be considered a disorder.

And that's just S&M: other types of behavior do NOT come close to having or requiring a psychological diagnosis. Bondage is just a form of play if consensual; like stockings and a good suit & tie on an attractive man.

So once again, 6 months later, Patient_Zero is sprouting off about his prejudices and not about fact.

BTW, thanks for re-initiating the thread. I've gotten a LOT more likes for my statements. And the person you are replying to above? A male, by the name of Matthew B. NOT me. But thanks for paying attention, Intellect_Zero.

For those still reading through: if you have BDSM fantasies, please know that you CAN engage in them safely, sanely and consensually, with someone you love and respect and who loves and respects you. My loving dominant is having a nap on the couch after rubbing my back & shoulders and getting the same from me. Tomorrow we may play, but it will be what we both desire and want. Cat suit included.

“We can blame the politicians who won't resign when they've disgraced their offices, but really it's the people who are to blame. The people who apparently have NO standards for their politicians, whether it is of their "stripe" or political party. Are we required to check our ethics or our sense of right and wrong when we acquire a political affiliation? I didn't know that.

Stop thinking, when we decide on a political philosophy. Fantino insulted ALL veterans, including some members of his own party. I know who I'd stand with if a leader in a party I supported insulted a veteran. But then, I think party affiliations are a short cut for not thinking these days. Look at Ford Nation for all the proof you need.”

“The surest way to kill democracy is to belittle the concerns and participation of others. Neil Young is no more "just a musician" than Pierre Trudeau was "just a law professor", Harper is "just a dick", or I am "just a woman". Citizens participate in a democracy and all are supposed to have a voice. Neil Young can have his concerns and they are totally legitimate, and shared by millions of people, including high-ranking scientists and environmentalists that the Harper government is currently silencing through threats and intimidation.

If people with a public platform like Young don't speak up, who or what can challenge the Harper government's destruction of our environment?”

“I've lived with a couple of alcoholics (one a parent, another a partner), and there is no "personal time" when you are an alcoholic. You are either recovering from drinks, or looking forward to drinks, or drinking. Sometimes you *might* work during one of those periods, but make no mistake where the priorities lie, even for highly functioning alcoholics and substance abusers, it's always on the next drink or whatever.

And the mayor has NEVER been highly functioning. Not as a 5 year old, a 15 year old, or a 45 year old.”

“Nope: I have it on good authority that when Lady Columbia shows up at international events, the other nations laugh and point at her. She SHOULD be embarrassed, but she just thinks they like her dress, and are jealous that they don't have a Super Bowl.

Honestly? A belief by half your nation's population that a deity (if it exists) has nothing better to do than take an active role in a professional sports championship is beyond sad, and shows the US needs to invest more in fact-based education and stop giving tax exemptions to religious institutions. That money needs to go to libraries and education.”

“Wow, I don't see how anyone would be confused from the quote you provided. Seems pretty clear to me.

Of course, absolutism works so well (NOT). Treating people, even teenagers, like thinking individuals only shows respect for them. And how could that possibly foster more responsible behavior?

In case you were wondering, Al B., I'm writing in a sarcasm font.”
