    Trump is NOT a businessman. He took daddy's money and flipped real estate in New York. Something any idiot could do. But it's not like he made as much as if he'd just put it into the stock market and left it there. Most of his fame as a big, successful businessman comes from a TV show in which he made no decisions and simply said what he was told to say. He is a celebrity in the same way the Kardashians are celebrities, without any noticeable talent except self-promotion.

    It is interesting to note that original paper was written about 30 years ago....and the author calls Haiti a...."hell-hole":

    Quit exaggerating what's being said. No one is screaming for blood, no one said she should be in stocks and have tomatoes thrown at her. No one is saying she should be flogged. Knock it off. It's your rhetoric that's over the top.

    It takes generations for countries to get out of the shithole that European colonialist created. There are so many variables involved in the mess. Look at Iraq for example; What U.S. has done there has pushed Iraq back by generations. Many of the educated and wealthy people escaped Iraq. The economy, culture and whatever system that was in place was destroyed by U.S.' war and the vacuum it created for ISIS to come in to destroy some more. Nothing worse than people who try to simplify the situation because they're too lazy to look beyond their bigoted and simplified way of looking at how the world works.

    C'mon, you hate Trump - I get it! Sure, he started out with a pretty good chunk of seed money, but it was him that rolled that money from a couple million to a couple billion. Trump was plenty successful before he got the TV show - He was given the show because he was Donald Trump not the other way around. We all knew who Donald Trump was before the show and that's why the show was a success - you cant deny those facts. Oprah has been very successful too, the difference is; her success is actually tied directly to her show. Any business that she has undertaken stems directly from attaching her name to products relating to/from the "Oprah" brand. Oprah has never built or produced anything, she finds a good product, attaches her name and tells her minions to buy it - and they do...faithfully.

    No, as the U.S. thrived with slavery as part of its economic system well into the 19th century. Civil rights battles in the U.S. would continue into the 20th century, even as it became a sh*thole superpower and global hegemon. Haiti has been its own worst enemy (class warfare, corruption, etc.) just as much as any negative foreign impact (France, USA, Canada). The former black slaves did not even treat themselves as equals. http://faculty.webster.edu/corbetre/haiti/misctopic/leftover/whypoor.htm

    At least with a murder, the police would have a body to start with. This story didn't make any sense when I first read about it...."a man with scissors"....seriously ? The cops were just doing their job...the media was just chasing "Islamophobia"...whatever the hell that is.

    No, but they should interview the parents to find out who put her up to it. I want an apology from Trudeau and Wynne who were quick to blame Canadians for Islamophobia as they cried their crocodile tears. Bet they'll find some excuse why not to apologize.

    Perhaps. But it isn't children that get the media and Prime Minister involved. Folks...kids even...get their headwear knocked off daily in Canada...daily...without media attention. The message is that the hijab is special...thus Islam is special.

    Of course Trump is your hero, he talks off the top of his head without the ability to support anything - just like you. Why don't you support your original contention?

    No he shouldn't. How often have we heard politicians say "I cannot comment because this matter is subject to a police investigation" or "I cannot comment on a matter that is before the courts". Those are the correct public observations to make is such circumstances. He couldn't help himself, just like the rest of our bozo politicians. They wanted to score points with the Muslim community but all they accomplished is make themselves look like fools.

    That is typical of the liberal left wing fake and phony media. They like to take things said out of context. Trump did not really call Haitians shitty people. Trump called Haiti a shit hole. The lieberal media are full of a bunch of bigots and intolerant snowflakes themselves. The lieberals apparently never talk about how the democratic party had black slaves themselves and many democrats were members of the KKK. Democratic Senator Robert Byrd apparently was a KKK member himself. The pro liberal/democrat Clinton Obama crowd here should do a little more research on the people they love to cherish for a change. They might finally learn something for a change that not all conservative/republicans are all that bad. Even democrats have shit in their closets. Just saying.

    What you have said about NRO is clearly and simply false by any reasonable criteria. It’s just nonsense. Try reading it sometime and get back to me. With these inane outbursts, Trump makes his own agenda more difficult to carry out. That’s OK for online nonentities like us - not so good for the leader of the free world.

    Muslims were enslaving Africans and creating the international slave trade over a 1000 years before Europeans had any effect on Africa. Yet most blacks will bash Europe and suck up to Islam ..... hmmmmmm, wonder why ?

    Liberals rage about women being told to wear more modest clothes to avoid potential sexual assault all the time. That's the point of the Hijab/Niqab/Burka in the first place. . . Modesty. Men can't control themselves if they see skin. That's an offensive position for both genders.

    What truth about Russia? Where and what was in it? Show me one more time. No one can embarrass anyone who tells it like it is. Report: The murder rate in some countries is higher than others. Seems clear enough to anyone who would read that and have no problem understanding what is being said. You just want to make a small deal into a big deal to try and appear funny and smart. I guess that you being one of those people that finished university thinks that they now know all. I have news for you. There are many people who have graduated from university who have shown themselves that they have as much intelligence as a carrot. Just try and get the picture for a change. Quit with the bull. Well, what other race can you say is superior? It is quite obvious that if you took a look inside and around your home you should have noticed and realized by now that just about everything in and out side is Caucasian made. You know that and so do I. You refuse to admit it. I do admit it. But you just want to make it appear as though this is a racist rant when you know it is far from the truth. There is nothing wrong with saying it has it is. You appear to be one of those liberal social justice warriors who have a problem with sucking up the truth. But I guess that is just you and always will be you. Suck it up, buttercup. No need to worry about me, I will be alright. I got this far in life without your assistance and I think that I will make it the rest of the way without your help. But you, that I am not sure about. You seem to enjoy getting yourself all fired up over sillyness. PS: I am very focused on myself and I am trying to improve my understanding as to how the world really works. The truth is always the victim from the liars who peddle their lies and bull chit. If telling it like it is, and being called a racist for doing so, than so be it. At least I try, you appear not to. Just saying.

    I was not aware that CTV and Global were right wing news outlets? Where was the Star newspaper? They love reporting on racist or hate crimes all the time. Or did they know that this was going to turn out to be a bull chit story somehow? So, what does redneck radio 680 news talk about anyway? News from the KKK? Well, do you think that these reported incidents whether true or not should be reported at all? Why did this ridiculous incident make international news?

    Trump is trying to make America and the rest of the world great again by working hard on trying to get rid of and fix up one shit hole country at a time. Maybe the liberal/democrats should call all this bull shit shitholegate? Chuckle-chuckle.

    You are damn right. What she did is unacceptable. And what she did, gives us the right to demand a apology. If some guy did that to her, I would be asking for his head, not just a apology.

    I suspected she was lying from the beginning. The whole story was bizarre and contradictory. And there's been a rash of false Islamophobia incidents in the US, too. Being a child, though, I wonder if she somehow ripped or tore the hijab on her own and didn't want to get into trouble so made up the story. Or maybe she takes it off when she goes to school and her brother caught her without it on. Either way, she should be charged with mischief, YES. Also, 11 year old girls should not be in hijabs.

    Nobody can force a country to adopt western style democracy because that's not how they think. It would require most of the population to change their thinking which they are not capable or willing to do. You're beating a dead horse.

    Haiti had it's moment of glory at one point and was no doubt probably working just fine until the blacks decided to rebel against their french masters and just about massacred them all. Ever since then, Haiti has become a chit hole.

    The Bible tells us why there is evil going on in the world and there is a lot of it. Crime galore, drug dealing, alcohol and drug related serious problems, social problems, domestic problems, terrorism widespread in the world. Criminal gangs, rapes, robberies, beatings, etc. Wars, corruption in governments, countries, law enforcement corruption, etc. etc. The list would never end. All this boils down to the human heart which the Bible says is born wicked and corrupt. Who would deny this is the nature of humans? Not many I would think. The evidence that God created the universe is all around us. I can't think of any way that it could come about by accident and I think the world's best scientists will agree. They can't come up with a plausible reason. God had a reason why he created the universe and mankind, although we might not fully understand why. It is only logical. Perhaps he just enjoys creating things and sharing with mankind. But you will say why does he allow all the evil things to happen? I tried to explain he has a long term plan. All that will come to a conclusion on his timetable. He doesn't operate on our timetable. A day with God is as a thousand years. Time is a creation too. It's a human concept based on principles of physics which God created as well. I prefer to believe what he says rather than rejecting it and risking where I spend eternity. I'm far from perfect, but that's why Jesus died on the cross, to save sinful people like me. It's man's only hope and salvation.

    Criminal law is about regulating social behaviour. It can't flex to suit individual circumstances. If it did then then each decision would be accused of being inconsistent and unfair. Remember this is criminal law not private civil law. In private civil law, Judges can consider individual circumstances when determining damages and behaviour. That said, it was in June of 2006 when the age of consent went from 14 to 16 but its not that simple because depending on whether the person engaging in sex is of the older age but is in a relationship of trust, authority or dependency, that 16 year mark is not absolute. So to be clear whole a person must be at least 16 years old to be able to legally agree to sexual activity its not an absolute. As well someone 14-15 is allowed to consent to sex provided the partner is no more than 5 years older. As well 12-13 years can consent to sex provided the person is less than two years older. In both the above mentioned situations there can be no relationship of trust, authority, dependency of exploitation. Sexual exploitation is the legal term now used where you would otherwise have the legal right to have sex but your position of trust or authority makes it illegal, i.e., you are a foster parent, teacher, coach, clergy, business manager, someone the child is financially dependent on. The laws above have nothing to do with God. If they did then Christians would point out Joseph was far older than Mary as some did in defense of Moore. Traditional Christianity, Judaism and today's mainstream Islam and many societies say one a girl men engages in menstration she is capable of sex and birthing children. Rules of sex in the past may have been justified by religions but were based on the primal function of reproduction. Any female capable of having her cycle was considered sexually acceptable. The concept of being a pedophile or a hebephile or engaging in sexual assault and exploitation has evolved and its a mix of the moral standards of the day and changing psychiatric definitions of sexual disorders that reflect the morality of the day at times. Criminal law is very much a reflective mirror of the moral standards of the day. At one point it defined sodomy as a criminal offence and said a prostitute.female sex worker could not be able to plead she was sexually assaulted given her profession. The fact is we have an entire marketing and entertainment industry that sexualizes children and uses sex to sell movies and products and portrays sexuality in provocative ways. Western social standards as to sexuality have widely fluctuated. In the 1960's the pendelum swung to wide open sex with indiscriminate partners and a confused female identity trying to balance being treated equally with their desire to choose not committed sex just like men. Gays and women came out so to speak as part of a general civil rebellion by blacks in the US and then all kinds of other minority groups to unfair treatment by the law. One man's LSD trip sexual encounter in a crowd with a woman at Woodstock also under the influence would not have raised an eyebrow and didn't as people openly had sex at Woodstock rolling in the mud. We went top cocaine fueled sex orgies and the Playboy mansion, Penthouse and Screw Magazine defending liberalism and sexual use of women as masterbatory objects at the same time. Gloria Steinhem had no problem providing an editorial to Playboy. You read back now the sexual standards of the 60's and 70's you can see there was a great deal of identity confusion brought on by wide spread use of drugs and the concept being promiscuous was part of the hip lifestyle. Now we see the pendelum swinging to an extreme reaction to it. Its posed as me too reactions to men being depicted and exposed as having harassed sexuality which may or may not entail actual sexual penetration by fornification once called rape. Rape was defined as penetration. Now its any act of unconsented sexual behaviour including technically touching, groping, kissing. So as we speak we have a litany of me too stories coming out and people being fired. All that said age has to be a reference. There's very few objective criteria one can use as markers to define sexual behaviour. Its one of the few. Your comment, " It would be best to find a means to measure maturity and conditional circumstances " is easy to say but try come up with a law to protect non consenting people without age as a measuring and conditional circumstance. I would suggest to you it would be impossible. I would also suggest to you there is no absolute way to measure maturity. Maturity is inherently an approximation point that varies in each individual. It could refer to physical characteristics, emotional ones, cognitive processing skills. You can have someone who is incredibly intelligent but has the maturity or physicality of a very young person making them easy to exploit. You have very emotionally aged abused children whose bodies are physically damaged. I've worked in the legal system with sexually abused children, geriatrics, women, disabled, and men. They come in all ages, ethnicities, sexual preferences and behaviours. Consenting sex between adults of equal values and power is no concern. Where it gets problematic is any relationship where there is violence or a marked imbalance in power is triggering an abusive relationship(s). The law does not have the ability or luxury to be vague and have some wide open definition that will never lead to consistent regulation. It has to define limits and age is as I said one of the few ways to do it.
