So I often get these stupid petitions from whateverthefuck.com

This one about stopping the Myanmar government from committing genocide or some shit. So I'm looking at it, and you know it seems more or less fine. I guess I would sign it but then I noticed that little piece right over there.

They sneaked in this little piece of info, thought I wouldn't notice huh? Calling "Palestine" a genocide. Haha goyim you thought you could get away with this?

Well fuck you, you can take my signature and you can brand it with hot Iron right on your ass. Stupid social justice warriors.

Should it be illegal to misinform someone/misrepresent reality in such a way that it leads another person to unintentionally kill themselves?

In the 1970's, Canada's central bank became privately owned. (Pierre Trudeau is the one responsible.)
Since then, the national debt of Canada has skyrocketed exponentially.
www.debtclock.ca/ Near the bottom of this page is a widget that will let you see the national debt of Canada on any given day since Confederation.

Would returning the National Bank to complete control by the government really help solve the debt crisis its in?

The first step in solving a problem is recognizing there is one.

The Supreme Court ruled Monday that companies cannot discriminate against job applicants or employees for religious reasons, even if an accommodation is not requested.

a defeat for freedom of association
User avatar #87281 to #87258 - mixednuts (1 hour ago) [-]
I imagine most LGBT individuals or anyone else who might be discriminated against on religious grounds wouldn't want to work for religious fundamentalists anyways. It would probably be a very hostile work environment.

Even so. If you aren't hired it could be difficult to prove that it was for the employer's personal biases rather than your own lack of qualifications.

I feel like Canadians underestimate multiculturalism because of it's low density. Even if most live close to the US border it still has far lower density than European countries, which tend to get significantly more immigrants from middle eastern countries.

Surprisingly Saudi Arabia has a stable economy but that's solely because they have so much oil. Socially there's nothing civilized about them though.

I need one more class to finish my minor in economics. If I take one next fall, it would put me at 19 credits total which is a fuck ton since I'm also working.

the two classes I'm considering are:
labor economics - which looks at the nature of unemployment
game theory - which deals with strategic decision making

Should I take on of these classes to complete my minor but also increase my workload
or should I wait for more options to become available
#87273 to #87201 - klowserpok (4 hours ago) [-]
Labor Economics sounds really interesting, I'd go with that.   
   
Also, apparently some parts of the Patriot Act are expiring.   
Good day to be free, eh?

How many hours are you working and what's the outlook on Winter classes?

User avatar #87219 to #87214 - akkere (05/31/2015) [-]
I suppose you could manage it and achieve an excellent GPA at the end result.
I'd recommend trying to acquire a syllabus for each class to get a head start on what you'd need to learn and know, as well as to get a head start with textbooks.
You could try checking out www.ratemyprofessors.com/ if your school's scheduling discloses that and you'll find reviews that might give you some insight on what to expect.
User avatar #87226 to #87219 - pebar (05/31/2015) [-]
oh geez.... the professor i've already had twice before teaches the game theory class and he is rated absolute shit on that website

and tbh it's not inaccurate
#87231 to #87226 - akkere (05/31/2015) [-]
Oy, looks like you dodged a bullet there. Shame too because it did sound like an interesting class, but broad topics like "strategic decision making" can take really bad turns depending on the professor.   
Does labor economics's professor look any better?

Alright, well at least you've got that secured.
Would the scheduling hours shape out evenly as well? I.e. you'll get plenty of sleep, plenty of time to work, and plenty of time to study with good breaks?
#87235 to #87234 - pebar (06/01/2015) [-]
I just signed up for labor economics and adjusted my other classes; this is my schedule now in a perfect wallpaper size and set as my lock screen .
It will work with my job hours quite well; now the only thing is to find time to sleep and do homework.
User avatar #87242 to #87235 - akkere (06/01/2015) [-]
Looks like a pretty solid schedule; I've always preferred morning classes (parking is a dream) and it synchronizes very well if the job lets you work 8 hour shifts in the weekends.
Now it's just a matter of assessing the quality of lectures, or at least the ones that aren't mandatory attendance.

What do you mean "wait for more options to become available"?

The econ department at my uni is pretty small so the higher classes aren't offered every semester.
Some classes are offered one semesters, others are offered the next.

If I wait, I can get classes like history of economic thought or monetary theory and policy

I had this exact discussion on Tuesday. It is amazing how pants on head retarded people are now a days due to what I like to call leftism. I was doing presentations in a group as the UNSC (I was Australia) and this one stupid foreigner from Quebec was gonna be America for another group, but he had no spine or balls. So when the opposition (his friends) told him he would be destroyed because they would bring up Nagasaki and Hiroshima, I had to explain to this guy that it was the best possible decision and that he should not at all regret it when pressured. Thankfully the ball-less guy said what I told him during the debate. His group was talking about Nuclear disarmament, what a ridiculous topic, especially since he can veto the vote

My senior history teacher hated me for sticking up to him about this stuff. All he ever taught was "American Genocide of Natives", the black slaves, and how we've been a bully since our beginnings as a nation. And he kept trying to get us to feel bad about it.

I told him why the Atomic Bombs were necessary and he made no argument other then, "America is bad, we killed 100,000+ people with the bombs".

He kept telling me that I should feel bad as a white person for killing the natives off. Then he didn't know what to say when I told him I had quite a bit of Cherokee blood.

He hated me and almost failed me on purpose in a class I usually excelled at.

In my school that type of shit can never happen. I've seen teachers give 90s+ to loudmouth talkers because they actually knew how to hand in a good paper and write a test well. Regardless of the fact that they skipped like 15+ days and didn't do homework.
