Canadian Porn Block Petition Gets An American Cousin

Canadian Porn Block Petition Gets An American Cousin

Commented Nov 24, 2013 at 09:59:45 in Canada Business

“You sound perfect. We don't live in your perfect world. My son saw his first porn at a friends. It took months to deal with the psychological damage for this. The only way to teach your kids about porn is to first show it too them and explain why it's bad. What parent would do this? You make the issue sound far too easy perhaps because you don't have kids.”

“My son saw his first porn at a friends. It took months for us to deal with the psychological impact of this. Many kids are not growing up in a perfect home
with parents that can monitor their every move. Porn is too easy to find and accidentally trip across. It is now available no smart phones too not just on the computer.”

Skepticat on Nov 24, 2013 at 11:00:00

“In a world of 500 satellite TV channels plus internet plus multi-media devices that display live or recorded  text, still and video images from anywhere anytime - 24 hour monitoring of your kids life is not only futile but leads to other problems like stifling of the development of self functioning growing independence. Having the state control the internet doesn't necessarily stop porn, scams, or other bad things either because of the multiple forms of access but gives politicians already proven to be untrustworthy more opportunities to control other information for their own good - not necessarily yours. What we probably need to do as a society is to develop a saner attitude about sex and nudity with our kids and teens to counteract the rampant sexploitation - and give our kids enough sense of self worth and empathy that they don't need or want to get into "sexting", cyber-bullying, porn and other counterproductive activities. Obviously talk is cheap compared to the parental effort required in this new era of constant information bombardment but letting amoral venal politicians become our nannies is probably trusting the wrong people to solve the problem.”

“We have a porn block. My son saw his first porn at a friend's home. It took months to deal with the psychological problems this caused. There is no way to educate your child about porn without first showing it too them.”

“I feel sorry for your son if he has had psychological problems from watching porn.
What were they watching, beastiality?
At least you are a good parent for putting your own block on your internet. What gets me is why does the government have to regulate what I at times enjoy to watch for a little pent up release.”

“Come on. Who are you kidding. There is a pattern here of anger management over a decade. He was fired as a bouncer at a party when he was being to aggressive. That was years ago. His wife is disgusted by him after lying to protect him. She now realized she perjured herself for a worthless piece of s____. He will come to a bad end of his own making and it can't happen soon enough.”

“We have all gotten over the injustice to a greater or lesser extent and remain supportive of the Martin family. Meantime "no stand your ground" laws have changed. Zimmerman is out doing more harm. And your drunk driver will do it again and possibly kill someone. Our society is dysfunctional and more so in some parts of the country than others.”

“None of us had any doubt he would go out and drink again, I really felt sick to my stomach after the verdict, we all did but when you're on a jury you are there to be impartial so we were and you have to follow the law even if you hate doing it. We did what was correct by the law but we all know it was still wrong.”

“I don't think that George fully gets that he is an untouchable. No one except another very flawed person wants to work with him, live near him or even drive beside him. He should leave the country and make a new home for himself somewhere where his past is not known. He is a classic example of a loser. He makes Homer Simpson look like a PHD.”

“You must be from backward country. I live in Canada where we have what Americans would consider socialism. It's not really. We have a very high standard of living and do not have gun slaughters every week, people walking around needing medical care that can't afford it and have one of the most reliable banking systems in the world. We pay higher taxes than Americans but our news is not peppered with the horrors Americans face everyday. We have some welfare abuse but it's very small as a percentage. Venezuela is an extreme example that is not a
relevant comparison to the US.”

Canadian Housing Bubble? 9 Signs We're In For A Major Correction

Commented Nov 12, 2013 at 01:39:51 in Canada Business

“I'm tired of foreigners making pronouncements about our market based on statistics and not on any true understanding of the market dynamics. We also have micro-markets as small as one area of the city when prices will behave differently than in other areas perhaps because of access to public transportation. So talking in averages is not very insightful. Anyone that thinks that housing prices for single family homes is going down any time soon in Toronto is dreaming. By the same token, supply of condos is getting to a point that the prices can weaken from over-supply. But in Toronto, this can correct itself in just a few years of little new construction, before the supply tightens up again.”

Overt Enigma on Nov 12, 2013 at 09:19:01

“You have to take a look at this holistically: There will be an adjustment, and while single family, detached homes, might not have as big of an adjustment, the over-saturated condo market adjustment will make up for it. Current DOMESTIC economists - those that work for the banks - are estimating that Condos will see a 20-30% adjustment in their prices, where as homes will see about a 5% adjustment.

That's across Toronto and its suburbs, so while areas that are in high demand - core Toronto - will likely not be adjusted and may even see an increase in value, the net effect will be negative.”

“Monitoring the calls of Chancellor Angela Merkel goes beyond what is acceptable surveillance. This is not a question of surveillance but the extent to which it is done. Snowden is a hero to me. The US is out of control. I do not go there anymore unless I absolutely have to. Homeland security and the TSA, lack of gun control, going deeper in debt every year is the decline of the American Empire.”

“Why would they kill their beloved little girl. There was no motive. They would both have to be psychopaths which was not the case. She was killed by a child predictor who saw her parading on stage in a sexy costume at a pageant. This was Patsy Ramsey's mistake. You do not turn little girls into sex objects.”

“I didn't say they killed her, But I do have my doubts about that. Parents kill their kids every now and then for what ever reason. But what I said, was that they knew what happened that night and helped cover it up.”

“Edward Snowden is a hero. The US is out of control and needs to have it hands slapped. They have become too arrogant in the name of protecting themselves and yet there are gunmen killing innocent people in the US everyday. More people die in a few months from guns in the US than died at 9-11. The US has its priorities all screwed up. It is an empire in serious decline and arrogance is the reason. Since Homeland Security was given unlimited powers at border crossings I have only traveled to the US when absolutely necessary. If a TSA person doesn't like you, they can throw you in jail and forget about you. No calls to your Consulate or Embassy and nor to your lawyer. You are toast.”

“You make a good point but accounting firms actually make a lot of money from recent grads. They produce a lot of work that can be marked up. I was with Accenture the largest consulting firm in the world. We recruited on campus for the best and the brightest. We were able to markup new hires work by at least three times. My son is working at a children's mental health clinic that works with families who have teen problems. His work cannot be marked up at all. He doesn't have his degree yet. While he sits in on client meetings and make occasional comments, he cannot provide these services at this point.”

“I am not defending no pay but I am also an employer. I am extremely disappointed in the work ethic, manners, expectations, and people skills of the new graduates I have tried to hire fresh out of university. If university was doing their job properly, the students would not graduate so clueless. They should teach graduates to put there iPhones away and concentrate on the work at hand. I went to MBA school before I joined a large multi-national. I was totally ill-prepared for corporate life after an MBA. Something is wrong with this model.”
