Topic How did you first discover you liked reading sex stories?
Posted 08 Oct 2012 16:24

I was babysitting for my aunt when I was either 12 or 13 and I came across a book beside her bed that only had erotic stories in it. After I put my cousin to bed I read the entire thing and I was hooked.

Topic Death Penalty. For or Against.
Posted 22 Jun 2012 21:20

And that there will always be the chance that future legislators may decide to change the laws and commute his sentence? Or that he may carry out a successful escape, and once again be free to terrorize the citizens?

What then?

Again, I would rather see a guilty man walk free than an innocent man be charged and sentenced with the death penalty. The imperfection of every system guarantees one or the other.

Topic Death Penalty. For or Against.
Posted 22 Jun 2012 16:35

Against. I think that most people would rather see a guilty man walk free then a innocent man be convicted, and because our justice system will never be perfect, we do NOT want to give an innocent man the death penalty. The death penalty goes against all of our basic morals and values as a society. There are many things that are temping about the death penalty, like if it is almost proven certain that they have committed the crime, but because of what I know to be right and wrong, I could not ever be for this capital punishment. I hope we never see this in Canada because I think that it is truly a breach on what we hold as a society to be moral and just.

Topic Does one always love more than the other?
Posted 21 May 2012 20:28

I ask this because I have been in a relationship for quite a while and I think that his feelings are far greater then mine. I'm not exactly sure if it is just me not expressing my feelings as freely as he does. Is it fair to be in a relationship with someone if your not really sure if you love them ( I have told him I did because I was freaked out when he said it) but they are in it 100%? I'm just wondering from all your past experiences if you have ever felt like the feeling in the relationship was unequal and how that turned out for you.

Another thing that has crossed my mind is that maybe the right relationship should have equal amounts of affection. But I have never had this. Maybe I have never been in the right relationship...

Topic Vietnam
Posted 23 Aug 2010 18:38

There is no question in my mind, from the point of view of most Vietnamese, we the US were the mighty muscle that showed up to make sure their oppressors, their incompetent, corrupt government, stayed in power. We were invaders on their land, destroyers of their land and inevitably some innocent people. So, hell yes, the Viet Cong did everything they could to kill and discourage the Americans. They, we, whatever- the US, had no business in their country, fighting against their wishes for themselves.
I wasnt alive in this time. But my mother was. She lived in South Vietnam when the war was happening. And as far as I know, my mothers whole family wanted Democracy and the Americans tried to help them. There would have been many people killed regardless. If the Americans didn't do anything, the South Viietnamese would have. The Chinese and Russians wanted Communism to spread and they were supporting the North to overtake the South. So it makes perfact sence to me that the Americans would want to get in on the war to help the South keep their Democracy.

Topic Granting amnesty to illegal immigrants
Posted 29 Jul 2010 11:52

Where did you read this? As far as I can tell, Obama's inaction on this issue is what's causing a stir, not any plan that he's drafted.

I heard about it on Fox News.

My opinion on this is on the fence. On one hand, granting all the illegal immigrants amnesty would be good because then they would all be forced to pay taxes for living in the States. But on the other, I agree with xXmtbkingXx. They all should go through the normal process to become a citizen. And also with the unemployment rate way up, maybe some of these jobs that the illegal immigrants have, citizens would want to take.

Topic Granting amnesty to illegal immigrants
Posted 28 Jul 2010 21:25

Right now, the Obama administration is drafting a plan to "unilaterally" issue blanket amnesty for millions of illegal immigrants.

Just wondering everyones view on this. Whether you agree and think they should grant all the illegal immigrants a citizenship or disagree.

Topic Should violent criminals be given false identities?
Posted 25 Jul 2010 20:57

I'm of two minds about this. The public should have a right to know if there is a sexual offender or convicted murderer in their neighbourhood. But at the same time, if the person has paid his or her debt to society, then they should be allowed to re-integrate into society.

I know it can be hard to tell the difference between someone who is likely to re-offend, and someone who just truly made a mistake. I've seen a community protest at a house in Niagara Falls when they thought an offender was living there. It would make it very hard for someone to be a part of the community. In some cases I think those types of protests cause the offender to seek out the only people who will accept them, the criminal element.

Interesting icon_smile I can see both sides but I agree with DancingDoll and LadyX.

Topic Should creationism be taught in schools?
Posted 23 Jul 2010 13:10

Sorry if I'm repeating something someone else has said, but I never read the whole thread.
In my opinion the problem with teaching creationism in high school science classes is that there really isn’t any evidence in it, whereas with evolution there is evidence in genetics and fossils.
Scientific understanding requires both facts and theories that can explain those facts in a coherent manner. Evolution is both a fact and a theory. But creationism seems to be more theory then actual fact.

Topic Health Care

Yes, anyone going to the US for treatment is doing so in order to get faster treatment, not better. Many of my own patients go to the US for MRIs or CTs because the wait here can be up to months. But if anyone thinks that they will be getting "better" surgery by going south...they are kidding themselves. They are paying for convenience, not better quality.
I think faster and better quality. I really don't have much experience when it comes to these things, but I do know that doctors get better pay in the States. And I do know that the best doctors in Canada go to the States so that they can get better pay. Which means better quality in some sense, but there are still great doctors here.

And how do they determine "best" ? MDs do get better pay in the states. Because private hospitals have the funds to do so. There is a "brain drain" in the medical field when it comes to MDs (as with many other professions). If you go to the Mayo clinic you are most likely getting the most knowledgeable MDs, but in general, there will be very little difference in the skill between Docs in Canada and the US.

Yes. It probably doesn't make that much of a differance with the doctors. But when it comes to quality of service, government run hospitals have less funding then private owned hospitals. I've noticed that hosptials in the States always look much better. Kind of like some kids will go to a private school because parents feel that they will get a better education. This may not be true, but don't some people get sent to the United States that can't be treated in Canada?

Now, I'm curious- whether you support or oppose the idea of government-administered health care, is there anyone that disagrees with the above feeling?

I don't know how to work the quotes xD
But Idk.. I dont like the idea of government run things. We can't get rid of all "money making" from the health care industry. The money making is what makes it better. The more money they make the better the service they can provide. And we have to pay the Doctors somehow. The more they make, the more they pay their doctors. There always seems to be a demand for doctors. Who would want to be one if the pay wasn't as good as it is?

That fits in with the argument you made that the poor people don't cover the amount of money they take from the system. Whether it's government run, or private insurance, no one individual will pay more into the system than they would take from the system if something tragic happened.

Yes but you seem to forget that the other people who got the insurance WILLINGLY bought into it. Not forced in taxes! Thats the main, or only point I care about! People being able to make their own decisions when it come to their money. Less government control! Insurance is a whole differant thing. They do not force ANYONE to buy into it. And there are individuals who pay more into the system then they take. Unlike what you said. If not all the insurance companies would be broke. In this system there is a balance. People putting in more then they take and people putting in less then they take. Its not fair for those who put in more then they take but at least in this system they WILLINGLY bought into it.

Which is it? Free, or that they pay something?
LOL Shit! you got me there. Guess I watch the next time I say free. They do pay somthing. But some not nearly as much as it would cost.

And I think you will find that all insurance funds work by everyone contributing less money than they will end up having to withdraw should something unfortunate happens. The people who don't have to use the funds consider themselves fortunate for not having suffered. If the insurance companies required you to pay as much money as you were going to withdraw from the fund, people would just do without insurance.

Umm, I don't get how that fits in but thats what they did in the States. They had insurance. We don't do that with health care here in Canada. But yeah! I like the way that works. But then if we had that in Canada, you would be complaining that the poorer people couldn't afford to get the insurance that covers everything. They may be able to afford the minimum, but their insurance will not cover everything. So there will still be sad stories. Yeah, this quote doesn't make any sence. Insurance companies make their money on the people that don't end up needing Health Care. But where is the relevince? Of course, it would make absolutly no sence for them to put in the same amount they withdraw. No one would do that.

Well, I don't know how to quote a whole bunch of things. So quoting all from above post

When he says thousands, he means the rich ones that can afford to pay for the better qualitly health care in the states. And thousands is saying a lot. Who knew that many Canadians cared enough to write a letter? I never did. Shit!
And I care a lot about it too.
Canada Health Care does work. And there are some positive results. But the US is still better. Like swanny said, the government officials do go to the states to get sugery. I heard about that. Rich people do too. Or they just move there. If I was rich, I would too. Better then getting my money sucked away in taxes here.

i agree to keep sweeping generalizations to a minimum but i have been POOR and i have had countless experiences standing behind people in high end name brand clothes and gold chains paying for groceries with food stamps while i stood clutching my 20 bucks that had to feed us for 5 days. then i did follow them out to their nice cars while i got in my hooptie.

is everyone like that? no. but abuse is rampant. ill say it again. personal responsibility! sometimes its like we're rich kids living on trust funds. our forefathers worked their asses off and sooo many out there think it should all be free to them...the american dream.

swanny was not so off in his remark even if it was a bit sweeping. with so much free stuff out there and it being so easy to get its hard to want to get out there and work HARD for what you want.

You are my idol icon_smile
I have a similar story because my mom was an immagrant who had nothing when I was born. But her and my dad pulled it together. Personal resposibility. Agreed!

I never said free. Why do you assume that poor people don't pay taxes?

I don't assume that. Because if they didn't, that would be illegal making it stupid to assume such. They obviously do pay taxes. But not even close to the amount it takes to cover their share in Health Care. Common sence. The rich get taxed more. Meaning some contribute more then their share in health care. Making it not at all fair. Someone who pays less then their share is still getting the same treatment as someone who pays even more then their share.

I also see a stereotype being invoked that basically implies that the lower-income class- as a whole- sits around in luxury cars and houses collecting welfare checks and other government handouts.

Both tend toward being offensive and are discouraged here.

Yes you're right icon_smile from the thing I quoted above, I ment to agree with how people lose the incentive to work. Not agreeing with the bit about the cars.
And I really am sorry if I offend anyone.

And yet another entitlement program is born. People that have 5 kids and can't raise's not their fault. They have a Cadi with rims, but they can't feed their kids, so I should give them MORE of my money. Can't educate their kids, here's some more. Can't get your kids their shots, here's some more....

Then I lose the incentive to work because I pay for all the people that don't. So you pay more, then you stop working.....

You are much better at this then I am icon_smile I totally agree with this part.

If you are still paying, then what's the difference whether you pay in to a fund with everyone else, or get to call it "charity?" While lower income people will appreciate charity, they don't want to depend on it. For one, it's not guaranteed, and two, they have their pride. Give them a way to work within the system and they will. They pay taxes just like anyone else.

This isn't about me. I could care less if I could call it "charity" or not. Just because I am willing to pay, doesn't mean that everone else is. And they should have the right to decide on where there money is going. My main issue with this is government control. The more control they have, the more it scares me. They control OUR money and who it goes to.
Pride. So it makes a differance whether they get their money in charity or whether they just get it for free at the expense of everyone else? This is a little contradicting. Pride! that means they would not take charity because they have pride! So they would die, or let their children die becasue they want to keep their pride? I really don't think that pride would matter at that point. The ones that deserve pride are the ones that can help themselves or the ones that can let someone help them, and then make themselves into somthing.
Your right, charity is not guaranteed. Thats why they should be self sufficient. I guess I have differant views coming from a good home. But putting myself in their shoes... If I needed help, I would take it if offered, but would never expect anyone to help me. I know I'm going way off topic but some people get so used to the help they become dependant on it. And that helps no one. With limited help like charity, it allows people to get the help they need and then either get themselfs somewhere or do the exact same thing again making us pay for it...again. Now that has a bit more to do with welfare.
Some people are perfactly able to work, but don't. And they get free heath care as well? Like I said before, Health Care is not a right, but a privaledge. Not everyone can afford it, meaning not everyone can have it. So the ones who cannot afford it should suck up their pride and HOPE that someone will help them and not expect the government to do so.
This case is really hard. You will never know who deserves to get free Heath Care and who doesnt, but that doesn't mean we should give it to everyone.

If you have a universal system, then everyone who deserves treatment gets it, even if you end up paying a little extra to cover people who don't take care of themselves. If you make everyone pay their own way, it means you don't pay for the system abusers, but it also means that people die who can't afford treatment they deserved to get.

I'm willing to spend a couple hundred dollars a year extra to avoid the death of one innocent person.

That is true. "even if you end up paying a little extra to cover people who don't take care of themselves."
The problem is we don't get a choice on whether we help. If someone wanted to be completely rich and not help anyone, so be it. Let them. Don't force them to pay though taxes. Someone above mentioned charity. I think that is the best way. You said you would be willing to pay a couple hundred dollars a year. Thats charity. I personally would too. If I knew it was going to someone who deserved it. But I really think that the money to cover those who can't afford the health care should come from people willing to help. Not from the government forcing it. I think we would all be surprised on how much people would help if they had the choice.

It is hard to argue with those who have been helped with their state medical plans.
But I would like to point out that it is the state, not the federal government, who should be providing health care to it's citizens. This could be argued with the 10th amendment but I assume there will be many here who would disregard that argument.

Agreed. It is hard to argue. Especially with a sad story. And without being "politically incorrect."

Well, I'm pretty sure there are millions and millions of 'special cases' where poeple can't afford the health care they need. The whole purpose of the new system they just passed into law is to provide exactly what you just suggested, not to force anyone into it.

Yes, you're right. But I'm just wondering who is going to pay for it. The tax payers right? And who pays the most taxes? The people with a greater income. Either that or the government was planning on putting your country into even worse debt which is a whole other problem itself.
And forcing people into it... well I really don't know as much considering I don't live in the United States and I haven't really done much research. But as I recall from the news, there were many people who really didn't want Obama's health care bill to pass. But they tried to push it through anyway. Even with it getting rejected once. They then revised the bill and as I saw on the news, some of the congress were getting treatened from their jobs if they voted against the bill. So not exactally "forced".

I live in Canada with the health care everyone is so proud of. But personally, I think that the US's Health Care is much better. At least it was. I really don't know the details on this, but I can tell that enough people never wanted this health care plan in the United States. Health Care is a privilege, not a right. Right now, recovering from a recession, it doesn't make sence for them to be putting so much money into Health Care. Universal health care is so left wing. People will lose the ability to pay for better health care if they can afford it, and the government will be taxing the rich more just to afford to give poorer people health care they cannot afford. If you think about it, it really doesnt make sence. Forcing the richer people to pay extra so that the poor can have the same. One word. Communism.
Going a little off topic.. But I beleive in a world where people have to work for what they get. Meaning paying for your own health care. Not relying on the government to tax rich people so they can give it to you for free.
Now I know there are some special cases and some people just can't afford some of the health care they need.
Maybe in the US they should provide a public Health Care for people who cant afford it. But also private hospitals where people pay just so that they could have the opportunity to get the best treatment they are paying for. Because if people think they are getting ripped off, like I'm sure most rich people do. They will leave. It happens in Canada all the time. All the best Doctors always end up going to the Unites States for better pay. What is the government going to do? Tax people even more to keep up the Doctors pay? Or go into more debt that future generations will end up paying off when everyone finally decides that its not a good idea?
But really, what do I know?...

The Final Bow

I step on the stage
With the blinding lights
Look into the crowd
And erase all my frights

The audience is waiting
For me to begin
This is my chance
Do I sink? Or do I swim?

My stomach is flying
Butterflies taking me high
I start to sing
And now I remember why

This is for all the people
Who judged me at first look
But don't they know?
The cover isn't quite like the book

I see all their faces
With disbeleif and shock
Now my confidence takes over
This is my time to rock

I sing the final note
And take that final bow
The moment of truth
Begins right now

Glady the audience
Screams my name and cheers
And somehow my smile
Now stretches from ear to ear

Topic Guys "trying too hard" is a turn off

Sometimes its cute when a guy is trying really hard. But I admit it makes them less attractive if they are constantly texting and bugging you. Sometimes when a guy doesn't try much, maybe just a sweet thing here and there, it keeps me interested.
