So Long Scribd
I have a vivacious appetite for reading. I can easily read hundreds of books a year and it can become very pricey. I stumbled upon Scribd and instantly fell in love with it. I have been a member for 3 years and love the fact that I have over a million books at my fingertips and for only $56 a year. [ Read Full ]

The Opposite of Addiction is Connection
As an addiction counsellor/facilitator, I have witnessed what drug use does to the body, families and community. The war on drugs has been a colossal failure, especially in Saskatchewan. Regina has the highest IV drug use per capita and HIV rates are skyrocketing. In some areas of Saskatchewan, HIV rates are higher than they are in Africa. Not only is it shocking but it is a crisis. Perhaps it is time we forgot everything we thought we knew about addiction and follow the Portugal model. [ Read Full ]

Battered Woman Found Not Guilty For Killing Her Husband As He Beat Her
The Cassandra Knott case will be historically relevant and not because of the verdict handed down in the second degree murder trial. The controversy surrounding this case is more about the benefits of cameras in a courtroom than it is about a battered woman who was defending herself against her abusive husband. [ Read Full ]

White Privilege, You are the Problem
In the the book The Souls of Black Folk W.E.B. Dubois coined the term double consciousness. It describes the individual sensation of feeling as though your identity is divided into several parts, making it difficult or impossible to have one unified identity. Historically African American's have lived in a society that has repressed and devalued them. The prejudices and stereotypes of white people can lead African Americans to suffer from a damaged self image shaped by the perceptions and treatment of society. [ Read Full ]

Stalkers Need To Have Their Own Registeries
For the last six years I have been stalked and the psychotic asshole can not get it through his pea sized brain to let me go. Apparently, being arrested, breaching his conditions, probation, counselling and all the wonderful feel good politically correct programs that are available did not work for him. Why must he immerse himself in my life and constantly try to see what I am writing on this site? Even though the IP has been BANNED, his compulsion to stay connected, has him using his iPhone to read my rants. [ Read Full ]

Tyler Farr "Redneck Crazy" needs to have his balls cut off
Our society is a bunch of hypocrites, we spend millions of dollars promoting violence against women is wrong; we are outraged and mortified women in other countries are being beaten because it is the husband's "right". Yet, a country song about an angry douche bag brags that he is going to harass and stalk his ex girlfriend becomes a number one hit in the United States. The kicker some of the Duck Dynasty cast stars in the music video, how is that for wholesome family values. [ Read Full ]

A New Age Christmas?
Traditionally, the Christmas season is a time for people to visit family and friends, go from house to house and spread good cheer. Many people have Christmas parties, work parties, spouses work obligations, kids Christmas concerts, and every other party, celebration or gathering I am forgetting because I usually don't go. Writing all of this is making me exhausted. [ Read Full ]

Entertainers and Role models WTF?
Eminem has caused controversy again, his new song Rap God, uses the word "fag" and it is insulting to people. LastO a gay rapper was quoted as saying "Granted, it's not directed towards the gay community, but subconsciously it is. He's using the word f-ggot to degrade another man. As if the worst thing a man can be is gay. What type of message does that embed into the minds of young kids, both gay and straight?" WTF, if the worst thing a man could be called is "Gay" then holly fuck our world is coming to an end. I thought the worst thing a man could be called would be woman beater, dead beat father, pedophile and perhaps not having any balls. I did not know being called "gay" was the worst thing in the world unless you are that insecure with yourself. What really pissed me of and left me shaking my head was the statement what does this do to the young minds of the children? We are truly becoming an idiotic society and will one day be mimicking Idiocracy. [ Read Full ]
