RCMP officers missed an opportunity to stop gunman before he entered Parliament

The   Mounties will scrutinize spending of the Senate’s top leadership along with that of several other past and sitting senators. They include Senate Speaker Leo Housakos, recently named to the top job by Prime Minister Stephen Harper; Conservative government leader Claude Carignan; and Senate Liberal caucus leader James Cowan. All three were among 21 pegged by auditor general Michael Ferguson’s report as owing money.   So the RCMP  wants to review findings on all 30 senators flagged for questionable expenses should  also start of with it’s own personnel as well.

.

It does not take a report written a year later to confirm I was right  about the bad RCMP, Security in Canada.

  Fire the bad cops And don’t try to give us all  the crap that any  bad police officers can be next still retrained, reformed .. the police themselves tend not to believe that any of the bad guys can be reformed    “The RCMP they are gaining a reputation for being more incompetent each day. What is  meant is that they are losing credibility as a police agency.   They should be called the RCIP, Royal Canadian Incompetent Police”  https://thenonconformer.wordpress.com/2013/11/27/the-pretentious-useless-cost-ineffective-rcmp/

RCMP officers missed an opportunity to stop gunman Michael Zehaf-Bibeau before he entered Parliament because a radioed warning of his approach came out “garbled,” RCMP Assistant-Commissioner Gilles Michaud said Jun 03, 2015 after the release of four reports into the Oct. 22 attack.  The report on the RCMP’s deployment on Parliament Hill, conducted by the Ontario Provincial Police, also cites a lack of “operational preparedness,” including planning, training and resources.  The report stresses the approach to security and protection on the Hill is “highly inadequate” and concludes the shooting was a “grim reminder that Canada ad the RCMP itself s ill-prepared to prevent and respond to such attacks.” The reports come as the cost ineffective  RCMP is set to assume control of a new Parliamentary Protective Service and take over sole responsibility for security in and around Parliament Hill.

.

A garbled police radio transmission failed to immediately alert RCMP officers that an armed Michael Zehaf Bibeau was storming Parliament Hill on Oct. 22, 2014, an Ontario Provincial Police report has found.

A woman with a baby carriage first alerted a female RCMP officer on the Hill about a man with a gun, RCMP Assistant Commissioner Gilles Michaud told a news conference Wednesday.

As the terrified woman attempted to seek shelter in the back of the officer’s cruiser, the officer tried to radio others about Zehaf Bibeau, who had forced his way inside a ministerial limo and was driving towards Centre Block.

However, the officer’s radio message came out “garbled” and no one understood what she was saying, Michaud said.

Another officer saw the limo approaching, but did not realize that Zehaf Bibeau was inside.

The gunman then made his way into Centre Block, where he was shot within seven seconds of entering the building, the OPP report says.

Zehaf Bibeau was shot 31 times, including two shots that would have been immediately fatal, according to the review.

The House of Commons and the RCMP released the redacted versions of the OPP report Wednesday. The names of all the officers and civilians involved are redacted in the OPP report.   The belief of many Parliamentarians is the RCMP officers on Parliament Hill are unhappy with their assignment and are only posted there temporarily.

The average, Illiterate computer users are taking a great risk

    0unfriendly
  
I am also still amazed as to how much maintenance time you have to give to one’s computer system, spyware, viruses, security system now as well. It seems we now  also  have to spend much more time on computer maintenance too then over when computers had first come out in the 1980’s too.. http://postedat.wordpress.com/2009/01/12/viruses-trojan-agents/ Microsoft Antivirus is a new rogue anti-spyware program – a fake spyware remover, which uses trojans, such as Zlob or Vundo, to enter the system. This parasite appears to have been made by Microsoft, which is completely untrue. Microsoft Antivirus uses disinformation to trick the user into purchasing it’s “licensed version”. Once inside and active, Microsoft Antivirus will flood the user with popups and fake system notifications, supposedly to inform him of an infection or multiple infections present on the system. While this may coincidentally be true, Microsoft Antivirus has neither the ability to detect nor remove any of the threats. To remove these fake threats, the user will be asked to purchase the parasite’s full version. Microsoft Antivirus is a scam and should be treated as such: do NOT download or buy it and block it’s homepage using your HOSTS file.  Microsoft Antivirus is Extremely dangerous http://www.2-viruses.com/remove-microsoft-antivirus

Spybot has to be one of the all time favourites which many users still haven’t got around to installing. Spybot Search & Destroy is a free program which detects and removes spyware which is not covered by antivirus programs.  This includes many of the new rogue antivirus programs which install silently in the background  I too have  used Spybot for years. I usually combine its services with CCleaner, Glary Utilities   and Hijack  for a squeaky clean computer.
.
RogueKiller is an anti-malware able to detect and remove generic malware and advanced threats like rootkits, rogues, worms. It also detects controversial programs (PUPs) as well as possible bad system modifications/corruptions (PUMs). For Windows XP, Vista, 7, 8, 8.1, 10. 32/64 bits  A suitable free version is available as well  Detect unknown threats, and eliminate them.
.
A  separate back up computer also   seems to be an essential  reality these days too.Not only have the software programs also  become too often more complicated, often not user friendly as well, they now take a massive hard disk space and seem to also require a computer system upgrade too, so one now basically needs plenty of time, even  a degree in computer science if you really want to use your computer for much more then just browsing the internet.  Thanks to this imperfect world, viruses, bad people, the continually need of a reliable computer  data back up software even due to  the short comings of Windows Back up and  restore is another serious problem now as well.  It is thus now a very well-known fact that most computers are  very susceptible to failures still,  hard drive crashes or virus attacks.  The average, Illiterate computer users are taking a great risk  these days in using a computer on the net...  see first http://wittnessed.wordpress.com/2009/01/19/windows-computers-backup/

The  security engineers were cleaning up on   following a series of worm attacks  including at least two credited to a bored 17-year-old.  And the company would take legal action against the worms’ creators.  The worms exploits a common vulnerability in Web applications called cross-site scripting which allows someone to inject code into Web pages others are viewing. In this instance,  the  users who clicked on the name or image of anyone sending the worm messages would get infected and then send the message on to all that person’s followers. Anyone viewing an infected user’s profile would also get infected and pass the worm on. To avoid such Javascript-based attacks, you can turn off Javascript in your browser. Instructions for doing this are here.  As is frequently the case with XSS-based attacks, the worm was unable to prey on those using the NoScript add-on for the Firefox browser. “Media darling Twitter was hit with a series of worms this weekend, a scam that was the brainchild of a bored 17-year-old Brooklyn resident. The micro-blogging site fell prey to four worm attacks between 2 AM Saturday Pacific time and early Monday morning, according to Twitter. “We believe things are now under control; we’ll be continuing to monitor the Mikeyy situation,” the company said Monday via its @spam feed. Mikeyy is the Internet handle used by the worm’s creator.  PCMag.com received an e-mail from an individual identifying himself as Mikeyy – or Michael Mooney – a 17-year-old high school student from Brooklyn and creator of StalkDaily.com.”Yeah, I am the coder of the worm this weekend,” Mooney wrote. “The worm spread through multiple XSS exploits, which then reposted data with AJAX after getting their auth token. I did this … through infuriation with Twitter’s lack of security and popularity.  Mooney acknowledged that he hoped the stunt would result in a job, “but I doubt I’ll get any job offers,” he said.He has not been in contact with anyone from Twitter or law enforcement. Mooney is a “little bit” concerned about prosecution, but said he hopes he can “get out” of it since he did not cause any actual damage. Should we expect any more Twitter attacks from Mikeyy?”    ” In 2005, Samy Kamkar exploited a bug in MySpace to add as a “friend” anyone who viewed his account profile. He then copied a snippet of JavaScript to that user’s profile to continue the hack. Within 24 hours, he had accumulated over a million friends. MySpace sued, and in January 2007 Kamkar pleaded guilty to a single felony count. He was sentenced to three years probation and 90 days of community service. “
.
But if you or a well-meaning helper has turned off JavaScript and you want to turn it back on (or if you’ve decided, for whatever reason, you really want to turn it off), you’ll find instructions below for doing so in the four most popular web browsers. http://www.tucows.com/article/1690 You can also use utilities such as NoScript open source Firefox extension, “The latest and greatest sites on the web–including this one–require JavaScript to be enabled in your web browser to give you the best experience. If you’ve got JavaScript turned off, read on for instructions on how to turn it back on (or, if you really want, the other way around) in Internet Explorer, Firefox, Opera, or Safari. Once little more than a novelty, JavaScript has become one of the main technologies driving innovation on the web. JavaScript (not to be confused with Java, a mostly unrelated technology) lets web designers make their sites more interactive, more visually appealing, and more useful. JavaScript isn’t all good–it enables pop-up ads, for example–but modern web browsers eliminate those nastier aspects, and browsing with  JavaScript turned off, in  excludes one from experiencing the best of what the web has to offer–including much of the functionality of this site–without offering much benefit.”
.
“There’s no hope for you and no point in looking for security enhancements, while you keep using an unsafe wannabe web browser… Get a real browser first!  There’s a browser safer than Firefox… …it is Firefox, with NoScript! The NoScript Firefox extension provides extra protection for Firefox, Flock, Seamonkey and other mozilla-based browsers: this free, open source add-on allows JavaScript, Java and Flash and other plugins to be executed only by trusted web sites of your choice (e.g. your online bank), and provides the most powerful Anti-XSS protection available in a browser.  NoScript’s unique whitelist based pre-emptive script blocking approach prevents exploitation of security vulnerabilities (known and even not known yet!) with no loss of functionality…  You can enable JavaScript, Java and plugin execution for sites you trust with a simple left-click on the NoScript status bar icon (look at the picture), or using the contextual menu, for easier operation in popup statusbar-less windows. Staying safe has never been so easy! Firefox is really safer with NoScript!http://noscript.net/ PC World‘s Ten Steps Security features using NoScript as step #6. (cite bite)

If you have about an hour each month at least, you can batten down your machine’s hatches against Net threats new and old. Here’s how.Each new wave of computer viruses, spies, and spam may have you ready to dust off your typewriter, but PC security can be effective without being a chore. To keep your computing safe from current and future threats, we’ve distilled our security advice down to the basics. These ten quick and easy tips will help protect your hardware, software, and data.

1. Patch automatically: Ensure Windows is set to update itself. In XP, click Start, Control Panel, Security Settings (if you’re in Category view), Automatic Updates. In 2000, choose Start, Settings, Control Panel, Automatic Updates. In both versions, verify that ‘Automatic (recommended)’ is selected. You can also have Windows notify you before it downloads an update, or you can install the update manually. (The steps and options are only slightly different in Windows 98 and Me.)

2. Don’t wait for Windows: If your PC has been off for more than a few days, don’t wait for Windows’ automatic update to kick in. Make the Windows Update site your first Internet stop. Also, there may be a lag between when a patch is available and when Windows Update pushes it to you. Microsoft releases Windows patches on the second Tuesday of each month, so to be safe check for updates manually every couple of weeks. And don’t forget to set your antivirus and anti-spyware tools to update automatically (or check weekly for updates yourself).

3. Use XP’s security monitor: Windows XP Service Pack 2’s most welcome addition is the Windows Security Center, which alerts you when your PC’s firewall and antivirus protection are disabled or out of date. Still, XP’s own firewall protects you only from inbound pests; it doesn’t alert you to suspicious outbound traffic (see “Tweak Windows XP SP2 Security to Your Advantage” for more). We recommend that you disable the XP firewall and instead use Zone Labs’ (ZoneAlarm) or another third-party firewall program that protects both ways.

4. Make your file extensions visible: Some viruses masquerade as harmless file types by adding a bogus extension near the end of their name, as in “funnycartoon.jpg.exe,” in hopes your system is set to hide such extensions (the default in Windows XP and 2000)–you see ‘.jpg’ but not ‘.exe’. To make these troublemakers easier to spot, open Windows Explorer or any folder window and click Tools, Folder Options, View. Ensure that the option ‘Hide file extensions for known file types’ is unchecked.

Bonus Tip 1: To get the most complete picture of your Windows setup, check Show hidden files and folders and uncheck Hide protected operating system files (Recommended).

Bonus Tip 2: Click here to play Microsoft’s video guide to Windows XP security settings.

5. Keep Internet Explorer safe: Many people find IE 6’s Medium security level too obliging to ActiveX controls and other small programs, or scripts, that the browser runs on your PC. ActiveX and JavaScript enable such useful Web features as order forms and security scans, but they also may run malicious code and give attackers access to your system. To make IE safer, click Tools, Internet Options, Security, Custom Level, select High from the drop-down menu at the bottom of the Security Settings dialog box, and click Reset, Yes, OK.

Unfortunately, setting IE to the High security setting can lead to the browser’s unleashing a fusillade of warnings and permission pop-ups every time you visit a site. The solution is to add the sites that you access often to IE’s Trusted Sites list: Choose Tools, Internet Options, Security, click the Trusted Sites icon, and then click the Sites button. Enter the Web address, click Add, and repeat as necessary (see the Trusted Sites screen below). Be sure to uncheck Require server verification (https:) for all sites in this zone. When you’re finished, click OK twice.

6. Make Firefox more secure: The only way to block JavaScripts on a site-by-site basis in the Mozilla Foundation’s free Firefox browser is to download and install the NoScript add-in that was created by Giorgio Maone. NoScript places a warning bar at the bottom of all the Web pages you visit that use JavaScript. Click the bar to see options for allowing scripts on the site (permanently or temporarily), blocking scripts, and other operations (see the NoScript screen below). The program can also stifle Flash animations and other Firefox plug-ins, but keep in mind that going Flash-less means you’ll be missing out on some of the Web’s richest content (along with all of those great dancing ads). Although NoScript is freeware, the author does accept donations at www.noscript.net.

7. Handle e-mail links with care: If a virus infects your PC, chances are good it arrived piggybacked on e-mail. To reduce your risk of an e-mail-borne infection, don’t click links in suspicious messages (the text in the message may mask the actual Web address). Instead, enter the URL in your browser’s address bar manually, or go to the site’s home page and then navigate to the page in question.

8. Scan attachments for viruses: Run each of the e-mail attachments you receive through your antivirus software before you open them. Rather than double-clicking the attachment to open it instantly, save the file to a drive on your PC, open Windows Explorer, right-click the file, and choose the option to scan it for viruses. (Better yet, set your antivirus software to scan incoming and outgoing e-mail automatically.)

9. Close the preview pane: Some maleficent messages need only be opened in your e-mail program’s preview window to do their dirty work. That’s why we recommend that you close the preview pane in all of your inboxes. In Microsoft Outlook 2003, click View, Reading pane, Off. In Outlook Express 6, click View, Layout and verify that ‘Show Preview Pane’ is unchecked. In Mozilla Thunderbird, click View, Layout and confirm that ‘Message pane’ is unchecked (or press <F8> to toggle the preview pane on and off).

10. Read your mail in plain text: Since many e-mail pests rely on HTML code to achieve their nefarious goals, you can stop them in their tracks by viewing your messages as plain text. In Outlook 2003, click Tools, Options, Preferences, E-mail Options and check Read all standard mail in plain text. In Outlook Express 6, choose Tools, Options, Read and click Read all messages in plain text. In Mozilla Thunderbird, select View, Message Body As, Plain Text.

Wireless Safety

Encrypt your Wi-Fi network: When you install a wireless network, it’s tempting to keep the vendor’s default network name and leave the network unencrypted. But doing so is an open invitation to your neighbors and anyone else within range to help themselves to your Internet connection. Open your network’s configuration program to rename your network and apply Wi-Fi Protected Access (WPA) encryption. And check the maker’s Web site regularly for driver and security updates.” http://www.pcworld.com/article/122500/10step_security.html

Now the top 20 threats encountered by computer users in the recent time, four out of five of them were NOT Conficker.  It is still true that the makers of the Conficker, the worm virus  that has infected millions of PCs, it also downloads several new malicious files to the infected system  has begun now to do what all botnet owners hope to do — make loads of money — security researchers said today . And the PCs that are infected with the Trojan horse — are now also rented out to spammers. Conficker.e is downloading and installing fake security software. Often called “scareware” for its habit of trying to spook users with bogus infection warnings — then dumping them with endless pop-ups until they fork over up to $50 to buy the useless program — sadly such rogue antivirus software has become a huge business.. It makes no sense to protect yourself or your business from Conficker and forget the other threats.
  
As many users are aware there is an epidemic of fraudulent anti-malware products which are targeting all internet users.  . They are delivered through various website links, pop-ups, drive-by downloads, email links etc, and in many cases, once the fake program has started to scan your machine you are infected, then it is a battle to get rid of this scourge. The trend of rogue software sites is increasing all of the time, changing names every few days once users realise that they have been snared which reduces the chances of claiming refunds for those who have actually purchased these fake programs in the belief that they will help them.  Fake anti-malware software, marketed under hundreds of different names, scares users by giving false spyware alarms and then tries to deceive them into paying for removal of non-existing malware. The goal of these criminal software makers is to make people pay for the “full” version of their bogus anti-malware product and to collect financial information that can be used for phishing. The fake security product often installs malicious software to download itself or executes other unwanted actions. The user is shown fake messages such as, “Warning! Your computer is infected with spyware”, followed by a promise that the chargeable version of the tool will remove this non-existing threat. These tools are promoted using hundreds of different names, such as XP Antivirus 2008 and XP Antivirus 2009.  http://freepcsecurity.co.uk/2008/09/19/epidemic-of-fake-anti-malware-products-threaten-internet-users/

To  any casual, or inexperienced Internet users, the  advice that is critical. 

To help protect yourself from rogue security software:

Install a firewall and keep it turned on.
Use automatic updating to keep your operating system and software up to date.
Install antivirus and antispyware software, such as Windows Live OneCare, and keep it updated. For links to other antivirus programs that work with Microsoft, see Microsoft Help and Support List of Antivirus Vendors.
If your antivirus software does not include antispyware software, you should install a separate antispyware program such as Windows Defender and keep it updated. (Windows Defender is available as a free download for Windows XP and is included in Windows Vista.)
Use caution when you click links in e-mail or on social networking Web sites.

How to tell if your PC has been infected by a Rogue Anti-Spyware such as Microsoft Antivirus?

Numerous undesirable and annoying pop-ups: A typical Rogue Anti-Spyware parasite keeps track of your internet browsing habits, sending your browsing history data to remote servers, owned by third party companies that use this information to advertise their products via numerous pop-ups, toolbars, hijacked homepages and spam letters. All these undesirable advertising methods are used on the victims of Rogue Anti-Spyware.
Changed or new icons: Sometimes, Rogue Anti-Spyware installs unwanted software to a victim’s PC without user’s knowledge and consent. This may lead to slower PC performance and stability, as well as more unwanted programs you can’t remove.

If you think you might have rogue security software on your computer:

Scan your computer. Use your antivirus software or do a free scan with Windows Live OneCare safety scanner. The safety scanner checks for and removes viruses, eliminates junk on your hard drive, and improves your PC’s performance. 

Additional precautions you can take to protect your computer system: http://billmullins.wordpress.com/2008/08/31/get-rid-of-ie-antivirus-four-removal-solutions/

When surfing the web – Stop. Think. Click

Don’t open unknown email attachments

Don’t run programs of unknown origin

Disable hidden filename extensions

Keep all applications (including your operating system) patched

Turn off your computer or disconnect from the network when not in use

Disable Java, JavaScript, and ActiveX if possible

Disable scripting features in email programs

Make regular backups of critical data

Make a boot disk in case your computer is damaged or compromised

Turn off file and printer sharing on the computer.

Install a personal firewall on the computer.

Install anti-virus/anti-spyware software and ensure it is configured to automatically update when you are connected to the Internet

Ensure the anti-virus software scans all e-mail attachments

How does rogue security software get on my computer?

Rogue security software designers create legitimate looking pop-up windows that advertise security update software. These windows might appear on your screen while you surf the Web.

The “updates” or “alerts” in the pop-up windows call for you to take some sort of action, such as clicking to install the software, accept recommended updates, or remove unwanted viruses or spyware. When you click, the rogue security software downloads to your computer.

Rogue security software might also appear in the list of search results when you are searching for trustworthy antispyware software, so it is important to protect your computer.

Windows 7, Vista Computer operating systems

 

Vista has been giving me personally so many problems with it many updates, the adobe flash player compatibity problems, crashes with  multiple tabs in internet explorer problems,  window live mail problems that now even for the first time in decades I wanted to stop using the computer.
 
 To the dismay of Microsoft , who seems to like to make money on the back of others, buying or copying the great innovation, ideas of others too.. 70 percent of computer users are still using XP as their operating system..

There has been much discussion as to whether upgrading from windows XP is essential, profitable, profitable at least for Microsoft and software writers, every time one upgrades the operating system one seems to have to upgrade the related security and utilities, program software as well

I for one have tried to be up-to-date on each operating system even since the first one dos 1.1 and over the years there has been a significant improvement changes, all paid by the users, consumers of course.. Not all the operating systems have been now that great some have been renegaded already to the dinosaur area.. and Windows Vista has not been all that great otherwise there would not be a serious need for more changes, revisions, supposed improvements as in Windows 7. The latest operating systems tend to have as many problems, learning difficulties, consumer more computing power, increase the costs  next as they supposedly solve and is a basic reasons many stay with the XP operating system

It seems everyone is trying to make a big profit from the computer users, including computer manufacturers, computer, magazines  telecommunication companies, Internet services providers, even software sellers and pornographers,  hackers too. The clear one group seems not to care at all to do anything good here is the Government of Canada.. it let’s other people do it’s job of consumer protection in these areas now too.

Beware always of men and women, bullies, tormentors, control freaks,  persons, civil and public servants,  politicians, pastors, leaders, elders, who falsely do, will try to enslave you, oppress you, exploit you
 
Is 51:23 ..your tormentors {and} oppressors, those who said to you, Bow down, that we may ride {or} tread over you; and you have made your back like the ground and like the street for them to pass over.

(Prov 21:9 KJV)  It is better to dwell in a corner of the housetop, than with a brawling woman in a wide house.

Bullies, abusers, liars, slanderers tend to be clearly immoral persons who try to enslave others uancceptably even if they profess to be Christian or what ever,,

>>My ex-husband smokes pot and drinks a lot, and I am told, so does his girlfriend. He once told me that I am too righteous because I don’t drink or do drugs, and I attend church.

and that was a verbal abuse if I have ever seen one..

so do thank God daily that he has now removed your from this  abusive relationship..

and do ask Him, God  to take all the tears away and he will.

(Psa 4:8 KJV)  I will both lay me down in peace, and sleep: for thou, LORD, only makest me dwell in safety.

(Rev 21:4 KJV)  And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes; and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain: for the former things are passed away.

and there still can be a good life after divorce with God’s help…

Truly any type of abuse is unacceptable and anywhere too

and exposing it loudly in public as well as calling the police is the best way to deal with it for everyone’s benefit, the abuser included.

God himself clearly does not accept verbal, physical, or human rights abuses

(Mat 18:6 KJV) But whoso shall offend one of these little ones which believe in me, it were better for him that a millstone were hanged about his neck, and that he were drowned in the depth of the sea.

(Mat 18:7 KJV) Woe unto the world because of offences! for it must needs be that offences come; but woe to that man by whom the offence cometh!

(Mat 18:8 KJV) Wherefore if thy hand or thy foot offend thee, cut them off, and cast them from thee: it is better for thee to enter into life halt or maimed, rather than having two hands or two feet to be cast into everlasting fire.

No we ALL cannot STOP, take the ostrich approach under the guise of love to the definite bad acts of others, we as Christians are still called to be fruit inspectors of those who profess to be Christians ESPECIALLY WHEN THEY RARELY QUOTE IT in actual context OR LIVE THE BIBLE THEY CLAIM THEY BELIEVE IN-

(Gen 31:42 KJV) Except the God of my father, the God of Abraham, and the fear of Isaac, had been with me, surely thou hadst sent me away now empty. God hath seen mine affliction and the labour of my hands, and rebuked thee yesternight.

(Lev 19:17 KJV) Thou shalt not hate thy brother in thine heart: thou shalt in any wise rebuke thy neighbour, and not suffer sin upon him.

(Neh 5:7 KJV) Then I consulted with myself, and I rebuked the nobles, and the rulers, and said unto them, Ye exact usury, every one of his brother. And I set a great assembly against them.

(Psa 119:21 KJV) Thou hast rebuked the proud that are cursed, which do err from thy commandments.

(Prov 24:25 KJV) But to them that rebuke him shall be delight, and a good blessing shall come upon them.

(Prov 27:5 KJV) Open rebuke is better than secret love.

(Eccl 7:5 KJV) It is better to hear the rebuke of the wise, than for a man to hear the song of fools.

(Mat 17:18 KJV) And Jesus rebuked the devil; and he departed out of him: and the child was cured from that very hour.

(Mark 1:25 KJV) And Jesus rebuked him, saying, Hold thy peace, and come out of him.

(Mark 4:39 KJV) And he arose, and rebuked the wind, and said unto the sea, Peace, be still. And the wind ceased, and there was a great calm.

(Mark 8:33 KJV) But when he had turned about and looked on his disciples, he rebuked Peter, saying, Get thee behind me, Satan: for thou savourest not the things that be of God, but the things that be of men.

(1 Tim 5:20 KJV) Them that sin rebuke before all, that others also may fear.

(2 Tim 4:2 KJV) Preach the word; be instant in season, out of season; reprove, rebuke, exhort with all longsuffering and doctrine.

(Titus 1:13 KJV) This witness is true. Wherefore rebuke them sharply, that they may be sound in the faith;

(Titus 2:15 KJV) These things speak, and exhort, and rebuke with all authority. Let no man despise thee.

(Heb 12:5 KJV) And ye have forgotten the exhortation which speaketh unto you as unto children, My son, despise not thou the chastening of the Lord, nor faint when thou art rebuked of him:

(Rev 3:19 KJV) As many as I love, I rebuke and chasten: be zealous therefore, and repent.

“This is from the book by Patricia Evans http://andthenshecried.wordpress.com/2008/02/05/the-verbally-abusive-relationship-how-to-recognize-it-and-how-to-respond

Verbal abuse is a kind of battering which doesn’t leave evidence like physical abuse does. However, it can be just as painful, and recovery can take much longer. The victim of abuse lives in a gradually more confusing realm. In public she is with one man, in private he becomes another. Often, for the verbally abused woman (man), there is no witness to her reality and no one to understand her experiences. Friends and family continue to see her ex, the abuser, as a really good guy and, certainly, he agrees with them. The verbal abuser, while maintaining his charm with others, always takes his abuse behind closed doors. It is a means of holding power over his wife( husband) /partner.. Many women and some men leave a marriage and come back into the singles’ world with the diminished self-esteem that comes from a verbally abusive relationship. The fact that many of these women (men) have never even realized that they were being abused, makes it easy for them to enter another abusive relationship. A verbal abuser is an insecure person and immature person who is looking for power and control over another.In order to help you recognize abuse, remember that all forms of verbal abuse are methods of manipulating you for the purpose of establishing power over you. The following are some of the forms of verbal abuse the author helps you recognize.

  1. Withholding: a purposeful, silent treatment.
  2. Countering: a countering of your ideas, feelings, and perceptions, even going so far as to refute what he misconstrues you to have said.
  3. Discounting–a putdown of you or something you hold dear.
  4. Blocking and diverting–this is a sneaky, covert way of violating your dignity.
  5. Accusation and blame: generally involves lies about the partner’s intentions, attitudes, and motives. The author states that accusation and blame is present in all verbally abusive relationships.
  6. Judging and criticizing: lies about your personal qualities and performance.
  7. Trivializing and undermining: abusive behavior which makes light of your work, your efforts, your interests, or your concerns. The abuser attempts to dilute meaning and value in your life. Undermining might occur when your partner laughs at you, for example, when you burn yourself cooking. It is also jokes at your expense. Undermining is occurring when you feel a “so-called joke” is mean rather than funny.
  8. Name calling: no one has a right to call you degrading names. Name calling is verbal abuse.
  9. Ordering: Telling you to do something, rather than asking, or making decisions for you or for the two of you without your input.
  10. Forgetting and denial: the trickiest form of denial is forgetting. Become aware that forgetting is a form of denial that shifts all responsibility from the abuser to some “weakness of mind.”
  11. Abusive anger: this seems to be closely linked to the need to “blow up,” to dominate, to control, to go one up, and to put down. Any time you are snapped at or yelled at, you are being abused.
Threatening: Physical threats and sexual threats aside, verbal threats are an effort at manipulation. For example, a threat to leave, stay out all night, or take you home immediately is a manipulation for power. The threat of “pending disaster” is designed to shatter the partner’s serenity as well as her boundaries.

If you counter the abuser or attempt to explain yourself, you will probably be met with such statements as, “I don’t want to hear it, get out of my face” or “Woman you don’t have the brains“, “BYou shouldn’t have said that to me“.

If you are in a brand-new relationship and see warning signs of verbal abuse, the author suggests you might be wise to let the relationship go. It is not likely that a man (woman) who needs to dominate and control will change easily, if at all. It is also likely that when the newness of the relationship wears off, he will become more abusive. Verbal abuse can become physical in time and physical abuse is always preceded by verbal abuse, according to Evans.If you are in a long-term relationship, you can respond to the abuser as the book suggests and soon discover for yourself whether or not your mate is willing to change and stop his abusive behavior.

“If you have been verbally abused in your relationship, you may have discovered that explaining and trying to understand have not improved your relationship. Therefore, I recommend that you respond in a new way–a way that will make an emotional, psychological, and intellectual impact upon your mate.”

The abuser in your relationship may change when he finds that you do know when you are being abused, that you have set limits, that you mean what you say, and that you will not take behavior you don’t like. 

If the man ( or sadly too often now a women) in your relationship remains abusive, it is not only not your fault,” it is  your responsibility to deal with it, make it public, call the police too.

Any person cannot still fight with you of you leave his or her presences, even forever.. and there is still a good life after a failed marriage now too. I practise what I preach and often now too.

The first spouse, love seems  is always the best one in our false pride.. and I know what that is like too.. WE SEEM ALL TO REPEAT OUR BAD TASTE, VALUES.. When they let a person out a prison they generally have a rule not to let them return to his old environment, past home, for five years.. otherwise they will be under the same old bad habits, dispositions too..

NOTE I lost once everything I had owned.. still next I replaced it all with the same things, even though I never used most of them, old habits and bad tastes DO die hard still too for almost all of us.. 

Now still reporting publically the abusers, and calling the POLICE TOO most often solves the abuse problem the best.. for if the evil persons do not feel real negative personal consequences, REAL negative public exposures, they really have no reasons to change their bad habits next and likely then never will.

I rightfully too tend to openly expose all abusers, all bad people, all bad churches, all bad politicians, all bad corporations that I come across, and  often and I  also do do call the police, regulating authorities  often and demand they all be fired,   be put in jail too.

I was also still surprised how popular this post now is too.

Employee shot and killed a supervisor..

“An employee shot and killed a supervisor and four others after an argument at a western Kentucky plastics plant, then turned the gun on himself, police and a company official said Wednesday.”
 
And if we delude ourselves to think that we Canadians are not so violent, gun crazy too, yes we too have had our share of revenge killings in Canada, even employers, killing some of some of the bad persons who likely asked for it no matter how tragic basically now their deaths are.  
 
I do not believe in violence, for  me the pen still is really mightier than the sword, and a good reputation is worth more than silver and God.  
 
I clearly do believe in the right of everyone to speak, to speak out as well,  and to be equally heard by all, so we can all judge what has been said if it is appropriate and we can next corresponding act upon it, even in the church, in the government, on the internet now too. Clearly some people falsely DO DISALLOW THIS RIGHT… the bad persons especially as even I know this for sure. They respond with a personal attack, inquisition, censorship, lies, slanders, diversions, distortions, instead of facing, dealing with the facts, truths being presented. Confirming to many what they still are really like, immoral, abusive bullies.
  
I can relatedly say that too me the federal public and civil services, cops, RCMP inluded, related commissions  are all mostly or merely a farce,  pretentious  now still  for the most parts from my many past many dealings with them now too. Just do  Log a complaint about misleading advertising, sales and service abuses  by a corporation, or an abuse by your employer,  or about being falsely discriminated, or you being abused on an internet site, or someone  threatening to kill you for being a whistle blower or what ever, etc., and most of the time you will get back in reply rather lies, distortions, falsehoods and no valid actions..  But next that certainly does not stop me from pursing justice.
  
Now for many years I have done my share of blogging and I encountered too many abusers, bullies, liars on the net in secular and religious sites, some detailed at http://postedat.wordpress.com/, and I rightfully did not put up with them quietly even if they were from Alberta, or anywhere else too.
  
So if I do next want to rightfully get back against a really abusive, unrepentant person  even now  I merely deal with them in writing eventually telling even to all about his or her actual deeds, acts, reputation, image, and I do this very effectively too. Most persons,  Canadians tend not to support the crooks, the bad guys, the visible losers once publicly exposed still nor should they now too. Nor does the news media generally  next too.  I do thus first clearly write to him and to the others next about him, and I do not shoot him. That might haven been kindlier.  Rather I let the whole world know what he is really like, and what he did,  as I had witnessed it myself, and I cannot be sued  now for slander if I am telling the truth too,  and the lawsuit would even bring more bad publicity on the bad guys still too.
 
I have seen many persons next in shock, depression, ill even once next fully exposed too.. Church pastors and their wives especially, as well as many Professionals now too.  They had many chances before to stop their wrong doings, to repent already too. But they had  liked to gamble that they can next still get away with it.. and sooner or later that approach backfires, it even makes matters worse. I have even the news media on my speed dial too. So should we all.
 
Honest public exposure and prosecution of the major guilty persons serves everyone’s best interest..
 
 Prov 24:25 KJV)  But to them that rebuke him shall be delight, and a good blessing shall come upon them.
 
(Prov 27:5 KJV)  Open rebuke is better than secret love.
 
(Eccl 7:5 KJV)  It is better to hear the rebuke of the wise, than for a man to hear the song of fools.
 
(Rev 3:19 KJV)  As many as I love, I rebuke and chasten: be zealous therefore, and repent.
 
(Luke 17:3 KJV)  Take heed to yourselves: If thy brother trespass against thee, rebuke him; and if he repent, forgive him.4  And if he trespass against thee seven times in a day, and seven times in a day turn again to thee, saying, I repent; thou shalt forgive him.

Hanging Up on Early-Exit Fees

   
One of the most common Questions I still do get from nay persons is how do I break a contract for breach of services.. https://thenonconformer.wordpress.com/2008/04/27/basic-contract-law/
 
“Hanging Up on Early-Exit Fees Regulators and courts are taking aim at early-cancellation penalties charged by carriers such as AT&T, Verizon, and DirecTV
 
There may be 50 ways to leave your wireless carrier. Just don’t do it before your contract is up—or you’ll be forced to pay a fat early-termination fee. That’s the lot facing most U.S. consumers of communications services, from mobile calling to cable TV to high-speed Internet access.  Consider the subscriber who wants to end a DirecTV (DTV) service contract and has to pay $20 a month for the remainder of the term. Breaking a wireless services contract can cost as much as $175. It’s a big reason why few people switch communications providers. At satellite TV company DirecTV, only 1.42% of customers close their accounts each month. Even Sprint Nextel (S), with one of the highest customer defection rates in the wireless industry, loses a mere 2.45% of its customer base in a month.
 
A prorated approach? But in a move that could make it easier for customers to drop phone or satellite providers, early termination penalties are coming under new fire from federal regulators, legislators, and courts. The Federal Communications Commission (FCC) has scheduled a hearing for June 12 to consider potential restrictions on the penalties. And even if the FCC doesn’t act to rein them in, Congress is mulling legislation that would.
 
Cable and phone companies, which spend hundreds of dollars on advertising and promotions to sign up each new subscriber, fear they’ll have a harder time recouping that investment if the penalties are diminished too far. And exit penalties exist worldwide: European telco Vodafone (VOD) requires subscribers to pay their monthly fees for the duration of wireless contracts, even if they don’t use the phone.
FCC Chairman Kevin Martin has suggested that the commission may require service providers to prorate penalties through the life of a contract, so that the longer a customer stays, the lower the fee. The agency may also require that buyers be allowed to drop a service such as a new cell phone contract without penalty within 30 days of purchase. “Certainly carriers may be able to recover legitimate out-of-pocket expenses and costs,” says FCC spokesman Robert Kenny. “On the other hand, we want to make sure this isn’t being used as an artificial means of locking consumers into a particular service provider.” A ruling to alter the allowed penalty structure could come as early as this fall, says Carol Mattey, a former FCC official who is now a managing director for consultancy Deloitte & Touche.
 
“Enormous Pressure” Congress, meanwhile, is considering several bills backed by powerful supporters, including Edward Markey (D-Mass.), chairman of the House Subcommittee on Telecommunications & the Internet, and Senator Jay Rockefeller (D-Va.). The measures, proposing conditions for wireless contracts similar to those being considered by the FCC, are already going through revisions in Congressional committees and could be passed in early 2009.  But while the FCC and Congress may impose restrictions, it’s the legal system that threatens to scratch early termination fees altogether. Courthouses from California to New York are flooded with class actions claiming that early termination fees, especially those on wireless contracts, are unfair to consumers. In a landmark ruling on May 27, the Supreme Court refused T-Mobile USA’s request to dismiss one class action based on the cellular company’s contract stipulations that all customer disputes be settled through arbitration. The decision means that all similar suits can proceed—some state courts are expected to decide cases within days—and may open the floodgates to new class actions. “I just see an explosion of lawsuits,” says Mattey. “Every week, every carrier is getting sued. It’s going to create enormous pressure.”
 
To preempt state court rulings, T-Mobile and Sprint Nextel have already announced they will start reducing early termination fees as the time remaining on a contract declines. Exact details haven’t been disclosed, though the changes are expected to take effect this year. Just two days before the Supreme Court decision, AT&T (T) announced it would reduce its $175 early termination fee by $5 per month through the life of a new contract. That matched a policy implemented last year by Verizon Wireless, which has also introduced a 30-day risk-free service trial and now allows customers to switch calling plans without starting a new contract.

Sprint’s Vulnerability The industry would rather make the changes on its own. “Early termination fees are changing based on consumer demand,” says Joe Farren, spokesperson for CTIA, The Wireless Industry Association, noting that consumers can always opt for pre-paid wireless services that don’t require contractual commitments.

But carriers’ moves may prove too little too late. Lawsuits alone could result in billions of dollars in costs and settlements, and may prompt providers to axe early termination fees altogether. “Pandora’s box is going to open up,” says Jessica Zufolo, senior policy director for telecommunications, media, and technology at Medley Global Advisors.

For an industry that has long used contracts to keep subscribers on board, elimination of termination fees could spell massive changes, such as higher churn and slimmer margins. A satellite TV company typically spends around $700 to recruit a consumer. For wireless companies, the cost of acquiring customers, including marketing and handset subsidies, is closer to $400, and it typically takes more than a year to recoup. Higher rates of switching could be especially nettlesome for Sprint Nextel, which regularly finishes near the bottom of customer satisfaction rankings. “The biggest loser, unfortunately, in this space is Sprint,” says Serge Matta, senior vice-president at ComScore (SCOR).

A Dash of Kindness An industrywide, free 30-day trial period would provide cold comfort to wireless providers. The provision would make it easier for a certain percentage of subscribers to start hopping from one provider to another to get free service. Back when long-distance companies abolished contracts, a material percentage of consumers began switching without paying their last bill, says Rich Nespola, CEO of consultancy TMNG (TMNG).

To keep subscribers, more wireless carriers might follow Verizon Wireless’s lead and begin allowing subscribers to switch to lower-priced plans without having to extend contracts. A recent survey of more than 2,000 users by ComScore showed that 19% of Americans switched to their current carrier for a better price. Carriers may also offer users more free content and other incentives to encourage them to stay. “They’d do sweet things instead of barbs,” says Richard Doherty, director at consultancy Envisioneering Group. But these treats are likely to eat into revenue and margins.

One potential beneficiary of lower termination costs: equipment manufacturers. Today, an average American replaces a cell phone every 17.7 months, vs. every 16.6 months in 2006, according to consultancy J.D. Power. That lengthening replacement cycle spells trouble for handset makers Nokia (NOK), LG, and Motorola (MOT). If early termination fees go away completely, handset sales could jump 25% in the first six months, Doherty estimates.

A downside: To preserve their margins, service providers may not subsidize the equipment as much as they do today. Sure, subsidies are becoming less common, and less of a draw for consumers willing to splash out upwards of $500 for a razzle-dazzle smart phone. But, unable to charge termination penalties, service providers may simply pass the cost to consumers as other fees.

Having your ISP or others instead cancelling your services is easy.. Just continue to post on the net the truth as to what they are like.. and your services won’t be worth anything to them next, they will disconnect you gladly..”

” The ISP suppliers, Canadian corporations  now even such as Bell, or Acanac Inc. http://www.acanac.ca 1-866-281-3538  still are big unacceptable Liars who undeniably too are  clearly  guilty also of misleading, false advertising too now.. Accanac had mentioned on their internet  site that they do not cap their downloads.. but they conveniently had forgot to also say to all of the potential customers on their site that they lease their services from Bell and   that Bell itself  still regularly between 4 pm to 2 am caps their downloads.. when confronted with this they  Acanac Inc do reply  that  they do not cap their downloads but Bell does.. what an absurd misleading play on words. Mind you Acanac headquartered in Toronto did also claims that  they do provide a solution to this Capping software by means of a Putty software but unfortunately this  Acanac Inc approach is unreliable, requires continual monitoring, and is presently   more problems then what it is worth. Acanac’s support services are also non basically existent in fact, or very very inadequate, slow…So why does our pretentious , inadequate Minister of industry, Jim Prentice MP and his   useless consumer affairs department fail over and over again to look after the good interest of the consumers, but looks mainly after Big business good welfare?”

My past download and service problems with Bell Sympatico,

 bellcanada
 
I must say I am still rightfully really unhappy with my past years of experiences with my  Bell  Sympatico ISP services , their DSL Service and  DSL modem included.  I had joined  Bell Sympatico  because they  had advertised to me,  a high speed, unlisted, unlimited downloads and with no capping of their downloads. And had I known beforehand that I would have all of the many  unacceptable problems with them, and I would also also have their RATHER poor support on all of this  next to, plus their dishonest billing, management practices too, I really would not have bothered to GET THEIR  Internet services even  initially ..
 
 
But the way the Bell customer support services tended to poorly handle my rightful complaints was ridiculous next as well. They had mislead me often as to what the real problem was, it was bad poor Bell itself, their inabilities  to meet theor own  promised contract terms. (Prov 27:2 KJV)  Let another man praise thee, and not thine own mouth; a stranger, and not thine own lips.
 
Bell Sympatico undeniably clearly had beforehand promised me verbally a “high speed unlimited, uncapped, reliable, continual download services,  and not they will try to next to  offer me this, submit  their best service but they had, have  to deliver to my next what was promised.  In reality they had clearly failed to live up to their own advertisement, promises because of their in incapableness now to do so to me and often as I had witnessed even for 24 months and rightfully detailed, had complained to them too.  Bell, their false pride of self importance has gone to their head and has allowed also the employees, even the president of Bell, vice president of Bell Sympatico to wrongfully now be abusive to  me ,  to wrongfully think that they can dictate their  own contract obligations, terms now to others, to wrongfully make their own self evaluations too, and that the others, like me, have no choice but to comply even to their clearly lies, distortions, perversities. The Bell president himself now also needs to be reminded that a contract is a joint agreement amongst two equal, mutually submissive  parties, and that both parties have to respect the contract agreement, and each other, meaning definitely that Bell has to respect the customer now too.. When this immoral Bell perverts now even writes to me and says according to our own records we have adequately supplied your our services, that is a disserted one sided fact, not necessarily or rightfully shared by the customer now, me. I have dealt with another ISP and they were more honest as to what they had promised me and next delivered in comparisons to Bell Sympatico  now too. The Bell competitors  download speeds are significantly higher all the time as well,  with no capping too  and even cheaper too.    
 
I knew that there was something wrong with my Bell Sympatico ISP cause when I had started to measure it their internet download speeds and their the torrent download speeds fluctuated , were low and  the torrents were also capped by 90 percent   between peak times 4 pm till 2 am by Bell Sympatico  which was  all absurd,  the torrent download speed  was as slow as   15 kbs and not  rather what I had by Bell in  in the past of 250 to 350 kbs as well during peak hours. Bell for 6 months had lied to me and said the problems were related to my own computer and software when it next turns out undeniably this was never so too.  Bell Sympatico next  was unable in  18 months to resolve my problem, they replaced my modem 7 times, sent me 7 repairmen to my home as well.. and yet in one day my new ISP,  DSL supplier was able to resolve it.. Not only was Bell Sympatico  not delivering to me regularly their promised high speeds on their high speed internet, but I was also having major  internet connectivity site problems and email problems and too often, and I was unable to concurrently use my torrent downloads, email software, and my internet browser. It was all  getting to be so unacceptably absurd too. Bell wrongfully, clearly  had not lived up to it’s promised  contractual obligations.Bell Canada Inc. has been ordered to publicly disclose information that details the level of congestion on its network in regard to a dispute over the company’s internet speed-throttling practices.

The Canadian Radio-television and Telecommunications Commission on Thursday told the company it has until June 23 to make public data that was marked confidential in a May 29 filing. Bell had said it needed to keep quiet the information, which details the level of internet traffic and possible congestion on its network, for competitive reasons.

In a letter sent to Bell, CRTC director general of competition, costing and tariffs Paul Godin said the need for public disclosure outweighed the company’s competitive privacy concerns.

“Commission staff has determined, based on all the material before it, that no specific direct harm would likely result from disclosure, or that the public interest in disclosure outweighs any specific direct harm that might result from disclosure,” he wrote. (link)

 
Bell Sympatico itself next had did me a great favor by cutting off my poor services with them
 
but Acanac had next offered an effective solution for it..  and also very much cheaper as well, all at the same speeds too.. “Acanac Residential High Speed ADSL without any Limits  No Blocked Ports or Traffic Shapping, Unlimited Downloading 100 GB of Online Storage Up to 5 Mbps Download and 800 Kbps Upload  $18.95 per month  This offer is only available on a 1 year term and the first year of service” sales@acanac.com<sales@acanac.com>

Upon further advice from the net
I set my Torrent  settings to:
-16 kBps upload instead of 60 kbs or more
-500 kbs (not unlimited download)
-tcpip.sys patched to 50 connections
-I do  have firewall disabled, 
Now I’m even downloading with 400 kbs and yes… the torrents I do use are selected do have many seeds and few peers.. so I am sure I can reach the maximum speed.

I like to use the torrent to download TV shows especially , I found TV shows often much better than the  movies, resolution included, plus on torrent downloads there generally are no COMMERCIAL interruptions,  and  I can chose when I want to watch the programs as well and this is why I basically do not want the cable TV instead.. I no longer watch my TV not even for the news.. since I also prefer to use the net for my news now too where I can get it at any time I want to  too..

I have let the putty program, with your recommended setting of 60 run all night, when it seems to be the most critical period, and it worked well.
 
 I have much appreciated your help and support here..
 
and I have been able to use my torrent download, and my email, plus my internet explorer with no connectivity problem. 
 
Now with steady confidence I can continue to recommend others to use Accanac as well.
 
I wish all the problems of life could be resolved that easily too.
 
Thanks a lot.

The MS operating system was  made for multitasking, even on the net, but with Bell Sympatico I clearly, wrongfully was unable to do this as well. Bell had even recommend that I shut down my  torrent software when I wanted to use my email or browse the internet. And  yes I too was really upset to find out that Bell was still capping my bit torrent downloads.. email, etc.,,

Who looks after the citizens welfare? The pretentious security Minister

  
0lastmeal

One in three hit with RCMP Tasers need medical care: The Canadian Press-CBC analysis The Canadian Press – Tue Jun 17, 6:18 PM  OTTAWA – Nearly one-third of the people the RCMP has zapped with Tasers needed medical treatment afterward, prompting new questions about a potent weapon police consider a safer alternative to conventional guns.

Prosecutors look over charge assessment report on Dziekanski death The Canadian Press – Tue Jun 17, 6:46 PMVANCOUVER – B.C. Crown prosecutors are looking over a police report that will help them determine whether charges should be laid in the death of a man hit with a police Taser at Vancouver airport.

Who looks after the citizens welfare? The pretentious security Minister Stockwell Day MP who could not become a prime Minister firstly too already.

The RCMP also  uses Mickey Mouse PR, Public Relationship to cover the reality it fails often to get their man, most of them and definitely!!
 
 Spending more money to overcome a bad a image is a really bad approach, a waste of time, for you still cannot undo all of the damage done already firstly..
  
“In Britain, many police forces are permitted to use Tasers only when there is a threat of serious injury or death, and before that threat has reached a level that would normally allow a gun to be used. The same holds for the police service of Northern Ireland, according to Mr. Kennedy, chair of an independent RCMP complaints body, in his final report on Tasers published yesterday. This should be the policy for the RCMP and other police forces in Canada. Why is that policy needed? Because, as seen in the two archetypal RCMP taserings in Canada – of a distressed Polish immigrant at the Vancouver airport, and of a penknife-wielding 82-year-old man in a Kamloops, B.C., hospital bed – police use the taser as a weapon of convenience.  The problem is not only that the taser can kill, or contribute to killing, as it did in the airport tasering of 40-year-old Robert Dziekanski in October, and in 19 other cases in the past five years. It’s that the overwhelming pain it causes and the total control it asserts (negating the brain’s impulses to the muscles, so that the tasered individual becomes completely locked up from within) are often out of all proportion to the threat”. http://www.theglobeandmail.com/servlet/story/LAC.20080619.ETASERS19/TPStory/Comment                 
Since I know with my own dealings with the RCMP many times the RCMP lies, and they too cannot be trusted to keep their promises, so we need independent reviews on the users of Tasers by the police, with reports in full detail at all times. When cops also do  know they have to do a report they will think twice about using Tasers..
 
Watchdog calls for better medical aid in taser incidents
Globe and Mail, Canada – 18 Jun 2008
OTTAWA — The head of the public watchdog over the RCMP says officers must seek immediate medical attention for people they zap with a taser.
  
Hey I have also shared it before, I know even too often firsthand that even the Police, RCMP, at the instruction of their political watchdogs, local politicians now too do collect a whole pile of data, information on the opposition, us ordinary citizens,  even from the net as well in their feeds.. but so does the post office, and  when you now do ask them to do some real work they all seem to be useless, pretentious. and do also have all their many false excuses just like too many of the politicians, civil and public services, etc..   “I would note that the issues raised , you are referring to in your email do not fall within the purview of the.”.  so how is the RCMP coming on the much too many complaints in Canada  that Bell Sympatico itself had this year falsified many of the customer’s renewal contracts without the customer’s prior approval, knowledge even, and mine included as I had rightfully asked them in writing too to do so too? Well? Or are they too still using their budgets to have a good time? Just like the bad others..
 
or are the police falsely going to harass  , investigate the whistle blowers rather or Taser and kill them and the others defenseless persons? THE RCMP falsely still did not get, convict  those murders who killed, Tasered to death,  the polish immigrant at the Vancouver airport even, too..  nor now most of  the big spenders who steal tax payer’s monies. And why? Don’t tell me they need a bigger budget again too?

 Canadians are trimming down on their food, lifestyle and travel habits as costs rise, says a new poll. Three-quarters of the Canadians surveyed said they’ve noticed the price of food increasing in the last three months, and almost half of respondents said they were already buying cheaper products in place of more expensive items.  http://ca.news.yahoo.com/s/capress/080617/national/food_gas_consumers

Who looks after out for our good welfare, the federal government, provinces?  we do that .. for the others are too busy stuffing their own pockets, having a good time still it seems.

Who is next?

  
” Foreign Affairs Minister Maxime Bernier was the first firing in the 28-month Canadian Conservative government’s reign under Prime Minister Stephen Harper. Another revelation emerged over the weekend about Ms. Couillard’s connections to an airport security company, yet the Conservatives still refused to entertain the notion this might be a cause for concern. But I suspect the kicker clearly came yesterday when Stephen Harper was confronted by his Minister’s troubled romance in the middle of a news conference with Ukrainian President Viktor Yushchenko. Was Ms. Couillard a security risk? What about the latest revelation? While President Yushchenko looked baffled by the reporter’s questions, Mr. Harper’s steely-eyed fury was the sure sign of a Prime Minister on the verge of snapping at the embarrassment of it all. Aware that Ms. Couillard was set to give her first television interview as a woman scorned and clearly in love with publicity, Mr. Harper stormed away from the microphone. That should’ve put Mr. Bernier on notice he was about to lose his status as the greatest francophone hope to become the next Conservative leader. Insiders say it’s highly doubtful Mr. Bernier left of his own accord. That hardly matters. Mr. Bernier’s resignation letter, as is the case with every minister, sits in the Prime Minister’s desk. It can be retrieved at will and used under any pretext. There is no appeal from a prime minister who serves as judge, jury and executioner. Mr. Bernier was found guilty of following his heart more than his head and being more trouble than he’s worth. In Stephen Harper’s government, that’s a crime worthy of capital punishment. (and at least with a Taser as well? but the leader himself had made the wrong choice now)” http://www.nationalpost.com/opinion/columnists/story.html?id=04e1f2b6-a576-4365-a46d-279eae94d67d&p=2
 
And  Jesus never sold one Sermon of his, nor the Apostles… so I rightfully cannot stand those greedy, money lusting charlatans who clearly try to make money by selling Christian literature, tapes, music, or what ever on the subject of Prophecy, healing, etc., .. and no matter what their excuses are now too.. Jesus said as you have freely received so freely give. And that is what I have done the last 4 decades too… and so should we all, trusting in the Faith for God to supply our needs, not begging for money, or wrongfully stealing by pretending to be a non profitable tax exempt corporation, organization basically so not to pay taxes as well.. How greedy can you get and pretend it to be Christian now too is the game many wrongfully play too even pastors….
   
Now there is another common scam I do not like, groups, churches who often choose a valid cause, since the best way to catch fish, suckers is with live bait, and then do next do ask for related donations, money.. this advertised cause tends to be rather an inefficient  self employment creation, and is not a real public services.. for to get most complaints, issues handled properly all you do generally have to do is to post it firstly on the net, and also write to the News media  with copies to the  elected officals
  
Public exposure works great.. The question I also still do rightfully have is who is next? All Ministers need to to beware…
 
 “Keep State & Church separate, or they will intertwine and once they are merged, vice enters and corruption begins” ?  “And I agree, 100% of all Churches too  should be investigated as should all politicians (those who govern/lead through laws) even in regards to what, if any, “crossovers” have occurred that are violations of State law.”
 
Some people think that  Separation of Church and State politics, is the main issue that  will help to stop the acts of much too many bad guys in politics and religion.. There are bad guys, bad Ministers now too  continually in or out of relgion in fact.
 
Separation of Church and State politics, and related corruption is just a very small small portion, issue.. Rather all major perversions, corruptions by anyone, politicians, priests, pastors are,  is unacceptable anywhere and at anytime too. For both politicians, Pastors and cops all civil and public servants too are here to help look after the good welfare of the citizens and if they are not doing that JOB NOW properly they all should be helped to become unemployed for sure BY THEIR CORRUPTIONS, ABUSES BEING EXPOSED TO ALL..
 
Religious or not is not the issue.. but the second law of engineering thermodynamics is, energy goes from a higher level to a lower level, it degenerates, meaning even water unrestrained flows downhill, or 30 percent of all people need to be put into a real jail it seems before they will stop their wrong doings and start to do good.. reality.. for self supervision or self regulation does not work, crudely it is just masturbation.. In reality too many people left on their own will continue to cheat, lies, steal, abuse others, the pastors and cops, politicians included now. They all need to be regulated, supervised by the governments and some now rightfully even arrested too. A man’s enemies, bullies and thieves will be those persons even from his own family are still a reality too.
 
The really bad persons unless they are exposed, punished will likely never change for the good on their own in fact? Public exposure and prosecution of the guilty works best for everyone. Now I have been writing letters to news editors, governments. for that is part of their job now too, and I have helped in exposing the bad guys and the bad corporations for decades too and thus rightfully helping to get rightfully deal with some of the really unacceptable bad guys and so should we all..
 
Us Senator John McCain  had fallen under condemnation by the news media for accepting the endorsement of Rev John Hagee . Wikipedia describes “John C. Hagee [as] the founder and senior pastor of Cornerstone Church in San Antonio, Texas, a non-denominational charismatic church with more than 19,000 active members.”
 
Rev John Hagee clearly states that he is not anti catholic or antigay but he is Anti Semitism and he is working on behalf of Israel and this highlights his belief.. but his dispensational theology support of Israel are not substantiated by the New Testament still. God loves both Jew and Arab as well as all of the Gentiles.
 
The Bad Unacceptable theology – Christian Dispensationalism – Dispensationalism is basically false and it is the method of interpreting the scriptures that sees two distinct peoples of God, with two distinct destinies – Israel and the Church. It is not a coincident that too many Dispensationalists do also oppose the work of the THE HOLY SPIRIT today as well, HIS Charismatic GIFTS NOW TOO. Toni, at FilesfromToni blog has posted a very good link to vital information for those wondering where the money which is given to different Christian Zionist organizations is really going and how its NOT being used. http://filesfromtoni.blogspot.com/  http://anyonecare.wordpress.com/2008/05/23/good-and-bad-unacceptable-theology/  http://anyonecare.wordpress.com/tag/israel/
 
The criticism of Rev Hagee, right or wrong is just the tip of the iceberg of discontentment against too many so called Christian pastors in America.  I know I pastored a church for a few years, and in the last 50 years I have encountered too many many mostly bad pastors, and 70 percent of evangelical pastors have admitted they had committed adultery and they even do counsel divorce for a start. The false misappropriation of funds in many churches in north America is so common so I had rightfully asked even the US government to investigate all of the churches- Pentecostal, Catholic, Baptist for their possible misappropriation of funds equally, annually in fact months ago too. 
 
For a start most churches ask you to the, give ten percent of your income to the church, but tithing is also an old testament concept and not enforceable in the new testament. In the old testament the tithers, and those who received the tithers had to insure that 1/7 of the donations were given to the local poor people. So I asked any church that advocated tithe that they prove as well they have kept this Biblical requirements, for almost none do it for it start. On top of that any clergy receiving tithing in the old testament was not allowed to own any real estate , tangible property too. If you are going to preach the law here on tithing too, then you yourself should observe all of it, not just mostly steal the tithe.
 
It seems these days Pastors, cops, politicians, Ministers tend to be still next equally all bad if left on their own, unsupervised?
