So nobody can carry a pistol?
Only cops, soldiers and private security with the right paperwork.
And since recently, and quietly, cops and soldiers of the U.S. of A.
Someone tried to assassinate the prime minister in the 90's, but couldn't get past Canada's final boss: The prime minister's wife wielding an Inuit soapstone carving. True story.
The supreme court suggested that the law be chaged so that after the facts the cops need to fill out a form explaining why they did it. C-30 already includes a provision requiring the cops to rubber stamp their own actions afterwards.
There was an author wrote a book that he considered inoffensive but a Muslim priest filed a charge anyway. No big deal; it's protected as free speech right? Nope. He found himself drug into the Canadian court for charges of hate speech.
Arrested for wearing a t-shirt: USA! USA!
Tazered and arrested for asking a question at an open mic question period: USA! USA!
Accused of hate speech: CANADA HAS NO FREEDOMZ! OMG!
it was the Enterprise A. And it looked great in the pics, it has to be said. Can't really see the issue they had.
I can picture the issue http://thepigskindoctors.com/wp-content/uploads/2011/05/nerds.jpg
I'm drawing a blank here but about the only thing I can think of that would qualify as close to pornography is the part where Ender beats the shit out of that bully and the book talks about how his medical sheet reads "bruised testicle."
After the teenager's mother contacted police, investigators contacted the school.
School officials have since said two of the three books the teacher read were determined to have materials (primarily swear words) and, in some instances, subject matter and terminology that school administrators consider inappropriate for the middle school.
According to commonsensemedia.org, which claims it has in-house staff and a team of reviewers who are experts in children's media, technology, health and policy matters, "this book was not originally intended for children. The violence is, at times, quite brutal, as kids kill other kids, though unintentionally, and the main character is admired for his ruthlessly efficient violence, though he himself is disturbed by it."
The website also advises parents to be aware of violence, sex and language, but states that the content is appropriate for children 12 years or older.
The student who gave a statement to the school is 14.
in "plain sight", meaning anything that escapes from your car, be it photons or small particles which we refer to as "scent".
It's not "plain" if you need a specially trained dog to detect it for you.
does it really matter?
Does it really matter if they stole the election? Does it really matter if the government is run not by democracy, but by fraud?
Should everyone stop voting for the party they felt to represent them the best, because of a couple of bad apples? As disgusting as this tactic was, I have hard time seeing how "Yes" would be a reasonable response.
If you feel that the party of the anti-democratic, election-stealing, frauds and liars is the party that represents you...
How is it that you think that you have contradicted the assertion "they only lack several human rights" by listing several examples of human rights being ignored? Are you joking? Get off slashdot and go learn about basic logic.
"Hi, police, I am currently committing the crime of possession of child pornography, here's my name and address..."
"trust your common sense". But this is a code-phrase for "you are as smart as subject-experts in their respective fields".
I could be as smart as any expert in any field. Knowledge of any field, however, is a different matter.
Having or showing a quick-witted intelligence.
