Dad upset with school over video shown to 12-year-old daughter

Steve Claussen contacted us about a sexual harassment video that was shown to his 12-year-old daughter's class at WD Cuts Junior High in St Albert, Alberta. The video is extremely inappropriate. In fact, YouTube won't let you view it unless you're 18-years-old. 

It would make any adult feel uncomfortable, and yet this teacher thought it was appropriate for grade 7 students. Can you believe this video was shown in class? Talk about poor judgment.

Evil Canada Must Pay

Global warming zealots want hefty guilt payments for scant CO2 emissions

Canada has become a petroleum pariah. And the green fundamentalists want you to pay the price.

Emission reparations are all the buzz at the United Nations Climate Change Conference underway in Durban, South Africa. They want us to fork over a fortune to poor countries, atonement for our crimes against humanity.

Jean Chretien and the Liberal elites signed us up for this boondoggle because it was trendy. Making commitments without thinking about the financially crippling consequences.

Kyoto ugly is going to send our country to the poor house. We need to reverse that mistake in a hurry. Environment Minister Peter Kent has hinted at it. We need out of this climate change church of hypocrisy while the getting’s good.

Greenpeace executive director Kumi Naidoo says Canada’s commitment to developing the oilsands is actually killing Africans. What a bunch of bunk!

Global warming zealots want Canada to make major contributions to the “Green Climate Fund” which would dole out $100 billion every year to Third World countries.

Evil Canada must pay for its sins with hefty guilt payments. They want to pinch your pocketbook too, with new taxes on air travel, shipping and financial transactions.

The hypocrisy of the Canada blame-game is just ludicrous.

They figure polite Canada won’t push back. That we’ll be wracked with guilt by their accusations and pay up.

Canada produces less than 2% of the world’s C02. The oilsands are just a tiny fraction of that. No matter what you believe about the religion, it’s insignificant in the grand scheme of things.

China chugs out more carbon than anyone, nearly a quarter of it. Some 70% of its power comes from coal. Yet China recently joined the chorus of Canada-bashing, calling Canada a “bad example” for the developed world.

Why aren’t Robert Redford, Daryl Hannah and the environmentalist fundamentalists protesting in Tiananmen Square? We all know the answer to that one.

America, the Saudi Arabia of coal, accounts for almost 20% of emissions. America’s not even a member of Kyoto, yet U.S. President Barack Obama and his celebrity buddies have no problem slagging Canadian energy.

Instead of being embraced we’ve been stabbed in the back.

Hypocrisy. Canada has been an unworthy scapegoat because we’re easy to pick on. We don’t talk back — let alone shoot back.

Look, I believe in clean water, but we need to reach a compromise without compromising a $14 trillion meal ticket. We must not bend over with guilt under the withering attacks of the apostles of the cult of global warming.

Global warming “science” is nothing more than a faith-based religion with a doomsday prophecy. All those who question their faith are heretics. Thankfully they don’t yet have the power to launch an inquisition.

The faithful ignore the latest studies from their own commune that take dire global warming projections off the table. “Green” technologies have all proven both expensive and even environmentally hazardous.

The facts bear repeating. There is no proven connection between man-made CO2 and global temperatures. Their shaky system of fear can’t hold up to scrutiny.

Kyoto ugly will expire next year. Let it die a natural death and pass into the afterlife. It’s only then that we will be delivered unto salvation.


Barstool Economics 101

Suppose that every day, ten men go out for beer and the bill for all ten comes to $100. If they paid their bill the way we pay our taxes, it would go something like this:

The first four men (the poorest) would pay nothing.
The fifth would pay $1.
The sixth would pay $3.
The seventh would pay $7.
The eighth would pay $12.
The ninth would pay $18.
The tenth man (the richest) would pay $59.

So, that's what they decided to do.

The ten men drank in the bar every day and seemed quite happy with the arrangement, until on day, the owner threw them a curve. "Since you are all such good customers," he said, "I'm going to reduce the cost of your daily beer by $20." Drinks for the ten now cost just $80.

The group still wanted to pay their bill the way we pay our taxes so the first four men were unaffected. They would still drink for free. But what about the other six men – the paying customers? How could they divide the $20 windfall so that everyone would get his 'fair share?' They realized that $20 divided by six is $3.33. But if they subtracted that from everybody's share, then the fifth man and the sixth man would each end up being paid to drink his beer. So, the bar owner suggested that it would be fair to reduce each man's bill by roughly the same amount, and he proceeded to work out the amounts each should pay.

And so:

The fifth man, like the first four, now paid nothing (100% savings).
The sixth now paid $2 instead of $3 (33%savings).
The seventh now pay $5 instead of $7 (28%savings).
The eighth now paid $9 instead of $12 (25% savings).
The ninth now paid $14 instead of $18 (22% savings).
The tenth now paid $49 instead of $59 (16% savings).

Each of the six was better off than before. And the first four continued to drink for free. But once outside the restaurant, the men began to compare their savings.

"I only got a dollar out of the $20,"declared the sixth man. He pointed to the tenth man," but he got $10!"

"Yeah, that's right," exclaimed the fifth man. "I only saved a dollar, too. It's unfair that he got ten times more than I!"

"That's true!!" shouted the seventh man. "Why should he get $10 back when I got only two? The wealthy get all the breaks!"

"Wait a minute," yelled the first four men in unison. "We didn't get anything at all. The system exploits the poor!"

The nine men surrounded the tenth and beat him up.

The next night the tenth man didn't show up for drinks, so the nine sat down and had beers without him. But when it came time to pay the bill, they discovered something important. They didn't have enough money between all of them for even half of the bill!

And that, boys and girls, journalists and college professors, is how our tax system works. The people who pay the highest taxes get the most benefit from a tax reduction. Tax them too much, attack them for being wealthy, and they just may not show up anymore. In fact, they might start drinking overseas where the atmosphere is somewhat friendlier.
