Re: 'Would you like some lemon juice and salt for that paper cut?'
Yup, nothing like seeing five Sportnets channels listing "NHL Hockey" and then seeing that the game has been blacked out and replaced with the scores of that night's hockey games. I was under the impression that the blockbuster deal Rogers signed with the NHL was supposed to eliminate blackouts. Oh well, there are other sources to watch NHL games.
By real democracy, do you mean the one where only a free adult male property owner could vote? The founding fathers had some good ideas, but it's stretching the truth to say they were trying to live in a real democracy.

Too bad for On Fire Male, that's not how trademark or copyright law works. Coke and Pepsi consistently use their competitors trademarks in their ads. And the ad is clearly mocking Burning Man, which means fair use comes into play.
Except that Karl doesn't uses a quote from the FCC. He uses a quote from the school's statement that the EMF analysis experts the school brought in noted that "RFE emissions on campus ‘were substantially less than one ten-thousandth (1/10,000th) of the applicable (FCC) safety limits.
So FCC sets a limit. Experts analyze school and find that RFE emissions are 1/10,000 of the FCC safety limit. That's hardly saying the FCC are gods.
It's not the "radition" from CFLs that is causing headaches. It's the number of cycles and modern CFLs don't have that problem.
But, yes, lets talk about anti-science confirmation bias.
For clarification purposes, in the Province of Ontario, all police officers and police services boards are bound by the Police Services Act. This has nothing to do with a city or a police board. Municipalities have minimal control over their own police forces.
Essentially, the Police Services Act creates a completely separate legal system for police officers.
It has nothing to do with his superiors or even his union (though his union has the ability ie. funding to prolong any suspension). It has everything to do with legislation that does not permit a police officer to be suspended without pay while under investigation. It's bad legislation.
By passing laws that allow the government to get around Constitutional rights under the guise of safety and security. For example, if you suffer from major depression, go to an ER and tell the nurse you have suicidal thoughts, the government can 'form' you, essentially making you a ward of the crown. Same goes for kids taken by the government.
The Beer Store - a beer retailer owned by the big three international brewers that has a government regulated near-monopoly on beer sales in the Province of Ontario - was considering filing a NAFTA complaint against the Province of Ontario if it opened up beer sales to other venues such as grocery stores.
So, three large international corporations were going to use a free trade agreement to argue that they should be compensated for potential loss of profits because their near -monopoly market share would be reduced.
Only in today's insane business and political environment could an agreement that is supposed to remove trade barriers be used to demand compensation for removing trade barriers.
