Death of a Nation

Canada has committed suicide, I regret to report.

A Canadian court has lifted a 12-year-old girl’s grounding, overturning her father’s punishment for disobeying his orders to stay off the Internet, his lawyer said Wednesday.

The girl had taken her father to Quebec Superior Court after he refused to allow her to go on a school trip for chatting on websites he tried to block, and then posting “inappropriate” pictures of herself online using a friend’s computer.

  • My kids aren’t even allowed to use the computer. If they need help with homework( age 11 and 8), they tell us what they need and we sit there and type it while they direct us, that way they are doing the work but we still have control over content. As long as my kids live here, we will have a major say in what they wear, hair length, piercing, tattoos, etc, if that makes me a bad parent, then guess Im a bad parent.I think that government everyone has too much control on people in general, its beginning to not feel so much like a democracy anymore. Love yall.

  • But the government knows better how to raise children than the stupid “masses.”

    Of course, this same government will put the parents in jail (thereby ‘grounding them’) when it is decided by this same court that they have failed to exercise appropriate parental control.

    Catch 22 courtesy of socialism.
