    Increased time online during the pandemic may have made young Canadians meaner, a researcher said Wednesday, warning that declining empathy which emerged during isolation was now fostering increased cruelty during in-person interactions, including at school.

    Kaitlynn Mendes, an associate professor at the University of Western Ontario, said during an Ontario Medical Association press conference that many parents may not be aware of their children's increased exposure to online harassment during the pandemic, which is now having damaging consequences.

    "Teachers really noted that, as young people were coming back into school, the way that young people were communicating with each other during lockdown had changed, and they found that their empathy had really decreased," Mendes, who is a sociologist, told reporters.


    It's interesting. It's worth examining the effect lockdowns had on kids and others just to better weigh the pros and cons next time.  I"m not arguing for or against lockdowns but i think that they were done with no though to what the consequences long term  might be - or even that there WOULDN'T"T be any.  This research and others seems to indicate that there was a significant long term effect of the lockdowns.

    You just CONTRADICTED YOURSELF. You CLAIM "large," but then admit YOU DON'T EVEN KNOW.

    Ahhh -no.

    I said they have had large claims,  I said in SOME CASES we don't even know how large the claims were.

    That is not a contradiction. Lets say we have 3 claims. 2 of them are for 100 dollars. The third we don't know.

    We can say we've had claims of 100 dollars and some claims we don't even know how much it was.  That is not a contradiction, that is true :)

    You STILL don't know how english works do you :) LOLOLOL :)

    Fair enough - but regardless of whether they are yours or a repeat of someone else's I wasn't interested in suggesting i approve of it.

    Anyway, Fox sucked back before the superior court could adjudicate and Fox still has more to come.

    And always will. Fox don't care. CNN don't care - they've lost some doozies as well. NBC don't care.

    What they care about is ratings and their ratings have gone way up. I'm sure they'll work harder in the future to hide the evidence better but they'll always be pushing the line and getting sued. sometimes successfully and sometimes not. They all will.

    Which i think is terrible - They do the deed, they get insurance to pay most of the fine and they move on  to do it again, and the public has no honest sources of information.

    Here.... In America..... We are required by law to treat everyone the same..... Yes.... Even trans folk.

    DeSantis is throwing away his chance at the White House over his stance on trans folk. 

    In essence, you could say DeSantis has f__ked himself with trannies. Actually, both trannies and Disney.

    Now Ron knows what a big dick looks like.

    LOL - you're such a class act :)

    And no, there is no law in the states that you have to treat everyone the same. People have the same rights. That's not the same thing.

    DeSantis won't be affected one drop by 'trannies' or disney - if anything smaking disney around won him points. If it wasn't for trump he'd be the next candidate and if he was up against biden he'd have a very strong chance of winning.

    Back to the "tranny" issue, i think transgender people on average are pretty well accepted but the political movement of 'transgender' is a different beast altogether, and some of the more unreasonable demands and the constant need for attention of the political activists rubs nerves raw.

    As i've said from the get go - the evidence does not suggest this is really a 'tranny' backlash. This appears to be more of a backlash against constant identity politics and the culture wars. This isn't just the far right tranny haters, this is much larger than that.

    People have seen it, and the only ones saying or trying to do something about it are those on the right... the left side of the house are perfectly OK with this type of behavior and conduct..

    For liberal voters it's practically a prerequisite.

    .it is normal nothing to see here, in fact will even defend it with the normal screaming and yelling...The only way to make a difference , is to vote all of them out... i think most Canadians right now have pulled their toques down over their eyes and ears to block it all out, nobody really cares until election day.

    Well i think there's a bit of the 'sleeping dragon"  (or perhaps in the case of canada the hibernating bear :) ) going on.  People gloss over this stuff and don't really think about it or what it means - until you rub their faces in it a bit and they're forced to really look at it. Then they tend to get a little more involved.

    If it's just on the paper for a day or two then gone they just don't even notice. It's almost like they think "Meh - someone will make a big deal of it and tell me if it's REALLY important",

    So you think Singh buys Trudeau street cred with the woke zealots.  I found it interesting that Singh threw the working class under the bus during the Freedom Convoy.  Another champagne socialist.

    I think the woke zelots is exactly what Trudeau thinks he gets out of Jaggers.  They all think 'trudeau is better than the cpc - he's not woke enough but that's ok because the ndp keeps him in line so we're all happy'.

    That will hurt jaggers in the next election as the radicals will have less of a fear or hatred for Trudeau because they don't see him as a threat to their ideology - they think he'll be kept in check.

    Thanks :)

    You do not agree that Fox got caught in their lies and had to settle and pay 3/4 of a billion dollars?

    And that there is another company suing Fox for the same thing except for more money?

    I more disagreed with your tone and this:

    he only total shit of the political spectrum is the trump and Fox followers. Get it, you losers LOL

    Fox lied and got caught. All the other media have lied and got caught and had to pay settlements too.  I don't see any difference really and i'm not sure it's appropriate to suggest that somehow it's ONLY the people who watch the liars YOU disapprove of that are 'total shit"  instead of the ones who watch the liars you do approve of.

    But the joke was hilarious :)

    Do you have trouble reading. Again, the distinction is that Clinton and co NEVER impugned the integrity and security of the electoral process. She never tried to convince Americans that their votes don't count or that they can't trust election results. 

    You fail.

    Of course she did She said: Trump "knows he’s an illegitimate president," "  Well - it's not possible for him to know that unless it's true - so she believes it's true.

    Buddy - everyone is now watching you lie your ass of and it' ruins ANY credibility you might have for the future.

    She specifically said his presidency is illegitimate and he knows it. That's what those words mean.

    FURTHER _ she claimed there was Vote suppression , and voter purging.  BOTH OF WHICH ARE PART OF THE ELECTORAL PROCESS - She ABSOLUTELY impugned the integrity of the electoral process claiming it had been TAMPERED with.

    So now we know she's a liar - and so are you. No wonder you support her.

    You lose 2ce now kiddo. Next time try truth.

    Never happened. There was zero chance that the election would be overthrown by fox news. And they knew it.

    Same as cnn then. At least fox didn't EDIT A VIDEO TO FALSIFY WHAT HAPPENED like cnn did. Which is far worse than just repeating a lie, which cnn ALSO did.

    destruction of two innocent companies,

    Innocent companies :) LOL.   Sure a company is worth WAAAAY more than an innocent CHILD'S LIFE!  I mean - most people if given a choice of saving a child or a company would let the child die, right? That's pretty normal.

    Those companies have the resources to fight (and did). THey have insurance, they have lawyers, they have resources. And their people are protected by a fair bit of anonymity, it's not easy to come up with the CEO's home address. Unlike the kids who were named and their community and school directly metnioned - took people 6 seconds to find them.

    millions and millions of government dollars wasted in pointless recounts,

    That's just stupid. Every election whomever wins accuses the other side of 'pointless recounts. Recounts are never pointless.  And if they are the Dems are every bit as guilty  - hanging chad anyone?  or did you forget all the times that the dems contested an election?

    an impeachment… yeah, tell us they’re equal.  I’ll show you 787 million reasons why they aren’t. 

    So fox news caused the impeachment. You're an !diot.

    Basically you've tried to claim that every single negative thing that happened during trump's time is fox news's fault.

    So does that mean cnn is guilty for the 5 billion dollars in riots that happened over the race stuff they reported on? Does that mean that theyr'e responsible for the current border crisis? How about the war in ukraine - they've talked about that.

    Sorry - we're comparing two specific incidents. one is the claim that dominion's machines were a problem, the other that a bunch of  schoolkids racistly confronted a first nations veteran.  Both of which were false.

    And of the two - DELIBERATELY FAKING A VIDEO AND RELEASING DETAILS OF WHERE THE KID LIVED AND PUTTING THEM AND THEIR FAMILIES AT DIRECT RISK IS WORSE.  THat is a F***ING CHILD for christsake - and they FAKED evidence - not just lied but knowingly faked evidence - to do it.

    FAR worse than just repeating a lie you don't really believe about a company that has every ability to protect itself.

    God what mental gymnastics you people are prepared to do in order to justify your evil.

    Just cause you don't understand that ratings ARE a measure of POPULARITY does not validate your appeal to ratings having ANY meaning.

    ROFLMAO :)

    I was the one who said ratings are a measure of popularity - and if they're a measure of popularity that literally does mean they have a meaning - they mean how popular a show is :)   ROFL - you couldn't even go a complete sentence without contradicting yourself and looking dumb :)

    Honestly don't you think about what you write?

    And of course the fact something is popular doesn't in any way shape or form mean it's a 'popularity fallacy'.  That's not what that word means. If i said "everything fox writes must be true because they're the most popular" - that would be a fallacy.  Pointing out that they're the most popular itself isn't.

    I feel like i should be sending a bill to your parents for tutoring you,

    She said SHE BELIEVES he knows... That is NOT a claim of FACT. You're WRONG, AGAIN.

    It is a claim of fact. For him to know it would have to be true. So she's stating it's true.  I get that english isn't your first language - but that's how it works. She called his presidency illegitimate.

    And it's hardly the only time.

    You asked for proof - you got proof - now don't throw a fit just because you were wrong.

    3 minutes ago, robosmith said:

    The FACT is, there IS EVIDENCE of COLLUSION which you right wingers KEEP DENYING.

    There is no such evidence - as the mueller report showed.  None. not a drop of evdence.

    So how are you any better than trump is? You're both claiming that the election was rigged despite clear proof to the contrary. I mean what kind of person are you?

    Wait... Hillary? Is that YOU??!?!

    AND theres NO proof to that OPINION!!!! (reeeeeeeeeeee)  :)

    What is that, about the 4th time this week you've used a "fallacy" term you don't understand? Do you just call anything you don't like some sort of random fallacy and hope people buy it?  Anyway you're wrong because of the "maybe you should learn what words mean before using them" fallacy :)

    Back in the real world, Fox still is the highest rated by a landslide. So people do enjoy them and they're obviously raking in teh dough. That's just a truth.

    You stated "THEY were FORCED to PRETEND they lied because the left wing appointed judge was going to rule against them no matter what ". 

    No.  I didn't.  And putting things in bold and caps and italics doesn't change the fact that it is YOU who is lying about what i said.

    Lets look at what i said,


    THey don't need to do anything but monitor social media and see what spin their fans come up with and like best and go with that.

    My guess is:

    "THEY were FORCED to PRETEND they lied because the left wing appointed judge was going to rule against them no matter what if it went to court AND nancy pelosi had their children locked up in a puppy-chow factory basement surrounded by rabid poodles!

    So what i very clearly said is here's a guess at what their fans will come up with.  And YOU HAD TO CUT OFF THE END OF THAT SENTANCE - because you KNEW it would be obvious that i wasn't being entirely serious.

    So when you say that i was making that statement - YOU LIED. What i stated is that fox viewers would come up with something, and this is my guess as to what.

    So you had to lie to try to make your point and pretend i said something i didn't say.  You should consider a job with Fox, you'll fit right in.

    Please quote even a single instance in which Clinton claimed election fraud or impugned the security of the voting process.

    During a September 2019 interview on CBS, she said

    Trump "knows he’s an illegitimate president," Clinton said. "I believe he understands that the many varying tactics they used, from voter suppression and voter purging to hacking to the false stories — he knows that — there were just a bunch of different reasons why the election turned out like it did … I know he knows this wasn’t on the level."

  17. At the end of the day, this is pretty odious. That a gov't body would produce a report that basically says that the gov't is illegitimate and should be destroyed and that the people of the country are bad people is shameful.

    All this does is spread more hatred and division. I used to think the left's goal was to replace our society with its own communist or socialist utopia but honestly i think these days they're mostly people who just want to watch everything burn.

  18. There's no doubt that there's been some pretty shady dealings by the dems. Especially in 2016.

    More amusing to me is that the dems currently go on about how terrible - TERRIBLE - it is that trump wouldn't accept the election results. Erodes confidence in the system you see.   Yet - to this very day Hillary is publically saying the election was stolen from her in 2016, and she's not talking 'figuratively', she's very clear that she feels she won that election but it was stolen.

    And of course there's Stacy abrams who is still demanding SHE won the gubernatorial race she lost.

    Both sides have their share of hypocrites.

    You and I are old. The kids will remain to hash this out. The internet has caused this mass "coming out of the closet" trend. So, the readily available info on trans and homosexuality ain't going anywhere. 

    It was never SUPPOSED to go anywhere. Gays and lgbt are more accepted today than they ever have been anywhere in history. Their legal rights are heavily protected. They're on tv, they're in media, etc.  It's not like they're 'unheard of'.

    But - kids don't need to be exposed to all of that stuff when they're 6 years old. It can wait. Like you say - it's not going anywhere. It'll be there when they're old enough to start to wrestle with issues around sexuality.

    The MSM willingly and loudly went along with his slander of MAGA.

    This is the thing. They do this weird little substitution trick with stories they like that are unconfirmed - the first day its "allegedly attacked by trump supporters" or 'reportedly' - then the next day thats gone and it's 'was attacked' even tho that was never confirmed. Then it becomes "trump supporters claiming 'this is maga country' attacked... " as if it's confirmed truth. And by that time the public forgets that this was alleged and there's no evidence of it.

    And it's not like there weren't some obvious holes in the story. There were questions RIGHT away about what he said happened.
