“Sorry you did break the rules even in a grey area.
1. You have to have a primary resident xx km away from Ottawa where you spend most of your living time.
2. You moral abused the spirit of the law..
You, Walin, Brazeau, the liberal and any other senator that's abuse your privilieges should be thrown in jail for breaching public trust and interest.
Harper is now worse than Chretian... Harper is self righteous only when it doesn't come to him.. He should be investigated.
Get rid of the senate already..”

“Harper was worse than Chretien the moment Harper was conceived.”
“I can't stand A-rod but come on unless he was peddling the stuff how can you ban him for lifetime. I sure wish they would just tell us they did or whatver..
Secondly, I smell the Yankees pushing for it so they can get from out of his contract.. His good playing days are gone, he's just another broken player and the Yankee's know that they are paying for hack now.”
“Democrats want young people to get all the information they can before making an independent informed decision..
And Conservatives, well they believe in controlling your decision and their attitude towards educations for people not rich or elite.”

“It comes from the home. When you have unthinking racists and religious fanatics home schooling kids to fear and hate and load up you get another generation of thugs.”

“Funny enough that's the same way religion works. If you're religious, you accept a conclusion and then try to find "facts" to back up that conclusion (or ignore facts that disagree with the religious pre-conceived conclusion). If you love science on the other hand, you set up a hypothesis and then rigorously test the hypothesis. If the facts are against the hypothesis, you admit it's WRONG.
A good example is evolution...it's a valid scientific theory (which isn't the same as "theory" used in slang) and fully backed up by facts. However, most on the left agree it's a sound theory...while the religious fundamentalists on the right pretend it's not the fact it is. That's why you have GOP members sitting on the science committee while still claiming the earth is only 6k years old...or that evolution is a (lol) "theory from the pits of hell".”

“If the penny cost so much ... then why didn't the government when the CAD was more than the USD just buy a billion US pennies... when the CAD was 10% more than the USD it would have cost 900,000 million CAD instead of 1.5 billion it would have cost for the mint to make them...
Harper economics.. lets rip off the tax payer even more. When they pay 1.03 round up so the consumer gets ripped off even more.”

“when a individual downloads music.. it's it actually free promotion for the record company to get the individual to attend a concert where the real money is made?”

“pretty much. If you look at the history of music, records were never intended to be a standalone venture for musicians for their livelihood. It was so their audience knew what they would play next time they rolled into town for a show. Sure, the records made some $$$ but it was only to set up the actual shows come touring. ”

“sorry to add to this, so if someone sits near my house using a laptop hacked into my home network and starts downloading material, how am I to be blamed? I'm a victim here too...”

“It would be hard to prove it was actually you, just as parents are technically not responsible for what their kids download as well. However, in civil court, it comes down to a reasonable doubt, not 100% proof, so the people responsible for pursuing people for money or in court have to try to show it was most likely you.
The good news is that most cases will most likely never see court (even if someone ignores the demand for a payout to avoid going to court) as it will cause a pretty big logjam in the legal system.
Just play safe and use an VPN if you are going to download. It's $10 or less per month, very cheap and very secure if you go through a reputable company. Think of it as a condom for your downloads :)”
