A real stupid move a Liberalized divorce solution still it only seems like a cheap solution

 

  besides the fact spouses of divorce and their children tend next to have more costly too health problems… many divorce women and their children end up on social aid too.. 
 
 How many of you do now know that Politicians, not just many people, can be realy stupid, they can offer stupid advice in reality.. such as go on with your life..

 

Well the so called cold, indifferent experts now say have an easy  divorce and just move on.. but the too often grim reality in the news  is not so.. for when one spouse unexpectedly files for divorce the other one often can get violent, as well as the spouse who does not like the future as she sees it.. and next the damage done before anyone can deal with it .. a more  easy divorce will not help here.

EDMONTON – Autopsies have confirmed that two young boys found dead in their Millet home were slain, RCMP said  in the double-homicide that has rocked the small town about 50 km south of Edmonton.  The boys’ father, Curtis McConnell, had found them apparently drowned in the bathtub shortly after 3 p.m. Monday.  The 31-year-old dad was estranged from his wife, Allyson McConnell, also 31. She’s recovering in hospital from an apparent suicide attempt around 2:30 p.m. Monday in south Edmonton.  Allyson had suffered broken bones after jumping from the Gateway Boulevard overpass onto the eastbound lanes of Whitemud Drive. The parents were going through a bitter divorce that revolved around custody of their boys. Allyson wanted to take the kids to her native Australia to live likely with her parents, while Curtis was against the idea, according to court documents.  “The questions go through your head. How do we move on? Why did it happen? Why now? Nothing can undo what has happened.  .”  McConnell  wrote late Tuesday: “I need answers to unanswerable questions.”   

  Imagine this stupidty also that the cops who as many of us do know already themselves are some of the most screwed up persons in the world will be offering marriage advice, counseling..

 

The B.C. government needs to make fighting domestic violence a greater priority, a Victoria police officer said for too many people are dying as a result of domestic violence,  and  negotiations are currently underway to develop a very costly and very likely infective still too  regional domestic violence team that includes members of the area’s four municipal police departments, the RCMP, legal officials and members of anti-violence service groups and there is not a lot of extra money available anyway from the governments.  Alberta is now spending $1.5 million over three years to pair police with social workers to intervene in situations of domestic abuse. It is hoped the extra resources under the pilot program will provide a tailored response to families identified as high risk for repeated domestic violence. The team will focus on families who have had repeated incidents of domestic violence reported to police and who want to make changes before the courts become involved. “We want to provide support and resources before violence occurs and before they find themselves entering the justice system”.. Dream on..  the losers, the Police providing  martial support, they themselves are the ones with one  of the highest divorce rates amongst the professionals. Physician heal thyself first applies here too.  But that is just a beginning of the many extra costs too.  An Alberta threat assessment report says that between 2000 and 2006, more than 500 Canadian women were shot, stabbed, strangled or beaten to death by their intimate male partners. Those numbers are five times more than all of the Canadian soldiers and police officers killed in the line of duty during that same time period, the report said. The ministry of the Attorney General has been reviewing changes to the way the province addresses domestic violence, but isn’t convinced a single province wide model is the correct approach, it is very costly to put all of these people in jail. Domestic violence cases represent the second-largest share of prosecutors’ files, after  speeding, impaired driving, drugs..

Almost no members of the local police forces have completed specialized training on domestic violence, marriage counselling as their own lives reflect it too. A police Chief had promised his members will complete a mandatory, one-day online training program by next spring… ha ha ha.. really absurd.  How stupid, foolish can the Police now even get for if a one day online computer course can help a policeman, could not the citizens take the same online course? Absurd, really ludicrous. 

 

Speaking about screwed up cops.. who often are falsely covered up for too.. falsely vindicated.

 

 Vancouver police chief statement on wrongful arrest Vancouver Sun –  Last night I went to the home of Mr. Yao Wei Wu to apologize personally and on behalf of the Vancouver Police Department for the injuries and trauma he and his family have experienced after he became the victim of mistaken identity.

An outside police force will investigate allegations against five current and former Manitoba RCMP officers accused of offences ranging from fabricating evidence to torture. The charges relate to complaints filed in civil and criminal court by a Portage la Prairie man. Matthew Gray, 47, filed complaints against up to 15 RCMP officers after he was handcuffed and jolted multiple times with a Taser stun gun in June 2003. In October, a provincial court judge agreed there’s enough evidence to proceed with charges against five of the officers. http://www.cbc.ca/canada/manitoba/story/2009/12/21/mb-gray-taser-rcmp-lawsuit-manitoba.html
 

 It was recently announced that the Police in BC and Alberta would provide marital counseling, family help.. thisnext was, is the expected result of such police activities..  VANCOUVER, B.C. – Vancouver’s police chief has personally apologized to a man who was mistakenly arrested and roughed up by plainclothes officers responding to a domestic abuse call. The officers responding to the abuse call went to the wrong address in the same building, and Wu says he was pulled outside and beaten, suffering cuts and a swollen eye. Two Vancouver plains clothes police officers were responding to a domestic assault call when they knocked on the door of Yao Wei Wu. The officers had the correct building — but the wrong apartment. When they knocked on Yao Wei Wu’s door, they had woken him up. He came to the door — and the police roughed Wu up.  Yao Wei Wu’s said he was hit multiple times on the back, head and face, and he had not resisted them because they were armed. Apparently the officers only realized their mistake when they had cuffed Yao and asked his name. Yao also had said that  the officers failed to ask him for identification before they began to beat him.  Chief Jim Chu is also backing away from an earlier police statement that the victim, Yao Wei Wu, was injured while resisting arrest.  Chu says that information was prematurely released as fact. A Vancouver police investigation of the incident is being overseen by the Office of the B.C. Police Complaints Commission. of course the department will be doing its OWN investigation…..what a joke. Please…….! When are we going to start charging these boozos with assault? I am personally sick & tired of these goons getting away with this kind of behaviour. Like when the RCMP welcomed that poor polish guy to Canada at the Vancouver airport. These people should NOT be above the law! The old boys club is alive and kicking………”Raise a glass boys, once again we proved we are above the law”

Vancouver police retract statement about beaten man CBC.ca

The Vancouver Police Strike Again: Another Citizen Takes a Beating Pacific Free Press  here is obviously a systemic problem with not only the VPD but policing throughout Canada where decades of criminality and impunity on the part of police forces has, in combination I suspect with too much television viewing and alcohol abuse, conspired to produce a generation of police who have no concept of the old saw “to serve and protect.” The situation of out of control cops, who feel just fine going ballistic on hapless citizens, especially ones of the poorer and darker-hued varieties is not helped by the silent complicity of politicians, and the kid glove treatment meted out by the media.

A woman at the lodge told officers she had been assaulted by her husband, RCMP said. The woman did not require immediate medical treatment for her injuries. Hart, an eight-year RCMP member, has been charged with assault, assault causing bodily harm and choking to overcome resistance.  He was released from custody on a promise to appear in Gimli provincial court on Jan. 25.

“Unfortunately, I was in an abusive relationship for years. I called the police in a panic more than once. When the police showed up they forced my children and myself out of the house, into a women’s shelter. My little girl was beat up by a 12 year old boy, who knows what that poor kid has been through in his life. We were forced to leave the Shelter, they didn’t want to deal with what happened to us. The police called social services and they came by to talk to me. when I was finally able to find a place to live. Five weeks later. The only thing the social worker did for my family was to hand us a little pamphlet that says “Street Survival Guide” Where are these magical services? How did a person coming to my house giving me a guide to educate me on being homeless on the street help us? I was disgusted, disappointed and insulted. Was mileage charged? Couldn’t someone just mail me this pamphlet? There are no services for women and children in dire straights. By the way I worked full time during this time and washed up in gas stations and ate fast food. Its hard to eat properly when there is no place to boil water”.    ” Only 1.5 Million Dollars ?   The severance packages of former Health Care employees are have been for much larger amounts. Stelmach, you are such a dummy…. ”  ” $1.5 Million (M) new money to combat domestic violence. $2.5 Billion (B) in new money to oil and gas companies to bury waste (carbon capture). I’m glad to see we have our priorities. ”  ” I agree with you and have seen this sort of thing time and again. The appearance of acting without actually doing anything.  ” http://www.cbc.ca/canada/calgary/story/2009/12/04/calgary-domestic-violence-funding.html
  

ONE OF THE MOST COMMON, POPULAR TOPICS, SEARCHES ON THE INTERNET is can a Christian next get divorced and remarried, and the simple answer is no! but wait do not stop reading yet.. for if you are married, living to a demon, a control freak, a liar, a lazy good for nothing abusive person then please now do immediately get out of the marriage, do get an immediate  separation.. and this not the kind of advice you would expect from a preacher of peace  and love, but I am telling you all  this for our own good, and  you can thank me later.. and maybe next the still good for nothing bum, lousy spouse, he or  she will wake up as  to what she is really like and they may try to get help to change herself, himself.. but meanwhile don’t feel guilty about the peace you now have in your life.. By the way make sure first you are not the creepy, a good for nothing spouse yourself otherwise by your actions you will be doing your own spouse a great, great  service.. https://thenonconformer.wordpress.com/2009/01/02/divorce-and-remarriage-in-the-christian-church/

 
So what is the solution?
 
Many Spouses usually accuse the other  one of what they are guilty themselves, and that is why they are so conscious of it often.. On the disintegration of Canadian family,  society. Many can see now what’s broken but they  don’t know how to how to fix it.  The diagnosis is much easier than the cure. For  the cure may involve personal changes, actions that many would prefer to avoid.  They all mostly would like to avoid being discomfited personally, verbally and socially. A real valid first possible cure for our nation’s family ills too is neither new nor complicated, it is a very simple concept: Merely first replace those in power. Why? Simply  you must admit that their own  proposed solution is still also clearly inadequate and will not rectify the family problem but rather escalate it. A liberal divorce procedure with good intentions even   may in theory allow supposedly peace next into the broken Home? In reality DO DREAM on  for the root problem of the individuals personal unhappiness has not been dealt with, even their  own laziness ,  unrealistic expectations, negative charactheristics too.  People divorced once are likely next to be divorced 3 times.. and there has to be real negative consequences associated with it now too including their personal real next loss of fortunes, job income, productivity, pension savings, health and life insurance , loss of dental insurance too.
 
But next not only will the number of family violences increase, so will the number of alcoholics, you will also get  more single moms on social aid, and also the divorcees tend to live a shorter life, pay less taxes overall,  and they  tend to be often more sicker than the long term married couple.. all causing a big costly burden on the social, Medicare system now next too. 
 
The police  already presently, and the social workers too now are unable to handle the many domestic family calls, and what will they do when the family violence next escalates with the too easy divorce, when  because the husband finds out his wife is considering divorce, he now feels he is being cheated, has been lied too, he now is being robbed, he has been taken in, he has been abused and the negative anger, his rage just increases and builds up.. so  often into family violence. ” the husband was embroiled in a fight over the ownership of the family home,   he was jealous after finding his wife in a bathroom with another man, and   he had a bad relationship with his mother-in-law”…  sadly all very typical these days too…
 
Yeah in Theory Iraq was going to be free and prosperous when the dictator was removed, but what happened to that  liberalized society next? what the Increase of Violence.. but they were promised peace, prosperity, freedom initially.. and very few divorcees find it too..
 
A real stupid move a Liberalized divorce solution still it seems like an overall  cheap solution, but it is very costly next overall.. very costly for the state too.. someone really needs to look at this plan and come up with something better. Or are they all there really that stupid still now? The police services are costly, ineffective too often, and a bad solution for most things anyway..
 
It  firstly is always Better not to have married the fool and next to Learn to live with your spouse.. no one is perfect.

Bell bites back with poor-man’s iPhone Globe and Mail – 3 Jul 2008 BCE Inc.’s lengthy struggle to privatize may have left management distracted and Bell Canada’s brand reliant on a couple of aging beavers, but the phone company is still managing to strike back at its more nimble rivals.

Ever wonder besides viruses that as time goes by you notice that   your computer net is slower, and slower, well it is no secret Bell, Rogers, and others cannot handle the continually increasing demands caused by computers and iphones now too. So their systems break down too often, have too many failures often, are over used, in over capacity mode.. and these carriers seem to  have been to cheap to rectify the problem, update, modernize their communication equipment..    https://thenonconformer.wordpress.com/2009/06/14/buyer-beware-beware/

The stastics on my own sites do show that MY MANY POSTS ABOUT MY UNDENIABLE EXPERIENCE WITH BAD BELL SYMPATICO ARE STILL ON THE TOP 3 MOST POPULAR READINGS OF ALL OF MY VARIOUS TOPICS THAT I HAVE POSTED ON MANY SITES OF MINE.

I had already written months ago  even here that Bell was capping the Sympatico downloads EVEN cause it was making way for their iphone business and Bell will definitely abuse it’s phone customers the next same way it has undeniably now too  abused many of it’s ISP customers. Sad and unaccepatable.

Too Many major ISP suppliers are unacceptably guilty of

Too Many major ISP suppliers are unacceptably guilty of initial and subsequent false misleading advertising practices, and an immoral  “Bait and switch” business   practice as well.
 
Here is the undeniable reality.. Many bad ISP corporations beforehand do not disclose the amount of capping that they do to their customers., or after wards, or lie as to much they supposedly cap. For example I have a Bell Sympatico connection or I can use a second party proxy connection, and next I get twice the download speeds with the proxy over the Bell’s capped services even  during the non peak hours as well, such as all day Saturday.. not just  evenings  4.0 pm to 2. am when Bell admits it caps their lines. Now that is a fact any potential bell customer should know now too.
 
“AP  Sun Jun 15, 9:45 AM ET  At one time, the word “unlimited” meant unlimited.
 
Sprint’s mobile broadband service is the latest to abandon the term and the principle in favor of a monthly cap designed to keep their heaviest users from overwhelming their network.
 
But Sprint isn’t alone: its two 3G competitors also cap usage, and two wireline broadband operators are testing explicit caps as well. In the earliest days of broadband, service was either heavily capped, with ridiculously low limits–I recall DSL plans that had 1 GB monthly downstream limits for business-grade offerings–or totally uncapped. 
 
 Now, the idea of capped service with metered rates, stern warnings, or cancellations above a monthly limit are fully in fashion. For the last few years, companies like Comcast and Verizon’s wired broadband division have warned users about excessive downloads, degraded their service, or canceled their accounts, often with little recourse, and sometimes denying it all the while. Enough states’ attorneys general and FCC staff and commissioners have been involved that what was implicit has become explicit, but with the related effect that caps have become much lower than what they were in the ad hoc days before these changes. Driving all this is not scarcity, because there’s plenty of headroom out there on the Internet, but two interrelated issues: service providers always dramatically oversell their service, and some users are actually abusers. ( But really how can one be an absuer when he pays for and uses what was advertised now?
 
 On the first issue, if an ISP has 500 people connected to a central office DSLAM (a DSL aggregator) with a total downstream bandwidth of 2 Gbps, there’s no universe in which a phone company makes available 2 Gbps to that location. Rather, they allot a fraction of that, which works when traffic is bursty, not continuous. Many people downloading or streaming a lot impact everyone in the same grouping. (I’ve seen this at home when I complained about my 3 Mbps DSL dropping to 500 Kbps at night. A Qwest technician explained I was lumped with heavy users, and with about 20 minutes of waiting on the phone, regrouped my line to another, less used pod of users, and my service has been fine since. The nice part is that was a logical change; no one had to walk over to a cage and move my wires around.)
 
The second issue has provoked a lot of debate. But without explicitly labeling the limits on a service, a subscriber can’t technically abuse it. If you know when you sign up for Comcast that they limit your use to 10 GB and provide tools to monitor as well as an understanding of what that bandwidth would allow you to “consume” each month, it’s a very different matter than “all you can eat. “
 
Verizon had long promised unlimited Broadband Access for their 3G EVDO mobile broadband service. But it was well documented that unlimited had fairly strict limits. After an investigation by the New York attorney general’s office, Verizon agreed to change its disclosures, pay some costs to the state, and refund money to some subscribers. The company now fully discloses its 5 GB per month limit for combined upstream and downstream data. Verizon charges you 49 cents per MB ($490 per GB) when you cross that limit, and the company says that they use email, SMS, and a live data usage display in their connection manager to keep you apprised. Note that a single high-definition movie download might consume nearly 5 GB.AT&T, likewise, has a 5 GB cap each month on LaptopConnect, its 3G cell data offering, with unspecified behavior when you top that amount–additional charges may apply, but clarity would be helpful. They note in their PDF-only terms and conditions: “The parties agree that AT&T has the right to impose additional charges if you use more than 5 B in a month. Prior to the imposition of any additional charges, AT&T shall provide you with notice and you shall have the right to terminate your service.”Sprint has joined this club with first the leaked news and then official confirmation that starting July 13, 2008, its 3G service would also have a 5 GB cap. A spokesperson told me that off-network roaming–ostensibly with Verizon or Alltel, the only other major providers of 3G in the US using the EVDO flavor–is capped at 300 MB per month. Now these are all 3G providers, who have limited spectrum over which they have to make sure all contending users in each cell get approximately the same kind of experience. They can’t afford one user sucking down all bandwidth. However, we’re seeing the same kinds of limits start to be tested for cable-based broadband.

Comcast is testing delaying traffic–slowing down packet transmission to throttle the bandwidth rate–in two Eastern cities they cover for the heaviest users of their service. This is an effective cap, rather than a cutoff. (Comcast has been delaying BitTorrent P2P traffic for all its users prior to this; this change affects all traffic, not just BitTorrent, and is being announced, instead of sub rosa.) In a town in Texas, Time Warner Cable is experimenting with offering different speed packages each of which is coupled with a monthly limit on usage. The lowest-priced package offers a ridiculous 768 Kbps downstream and 1 GB per month for $30 per month; the highest-priced is 15 Mbps downstream with a more reasonable 40 GB per month limit. Charges are $1 per GB above that. With cable companies traditionally and telephone companies newly offering television programming, premium channels, and on-demand video, the caps are another tool to prevent competition from over-the-Internet sources of things to watch. In a situation in which a few carriers control all the pieces, it’s unclear whether rate caps can stick. If both telcos and cable companies decide to impose such limits and restructure their networks, who do you turn to? People with broadband are unlikely to cancel it. In a monopoly or duopoly market, you can’t switch brands. There has to be a happy middle–a role that the FCC may help to negotiate. A 40 GB cap switched to 400 GB might serve precisely the right purpose without penalizing average users who have no other market choice. With Time Warner Cable charging a buck a gigabyte above their monthly limits in their test market, but with Amazon’s S3 service delivering it retail for as little as a tenth that, it’s not hard to see that carriers are looking to caps to solve network problems and make a little scratch on the side.”  http://news.yahoo.com/s/pcworld/20080615/tc_pcworld/146752
