Re: “Hey Mr. Nice Guy...

The irony to all of this BS is that the term "nice guy" or "wimp" are all meant as abrasive labels to identify and exile those not considered acting within accepted dating norms, when it fact the common norm is made up of often abusive, selfish, self-loving jerks who see themselves as "what is normal".

Since aggression and "what is in it for me" rationale are the conditioned female norm -- it says very little good about the so called normals in this society. Men are becoming increasingly infected with the same mindset, as they feel they have to be narcissistic jerks in order to compete in the dating pool, just like many of the women who seek to label men as part of their elitist judgments. Being a "man" is more important then being a "nice guy", but a man who does not practice kindness, compassion, decency, or "niceness" is not a man.

It is a growing symptom of our sick culture, and it merely shows that most of western culture needs a good matchstick to burn it all to the ground. That so we can start over rebuilding something that resembles a world where the people who are different are respected instead of used as hate fodder for drama queens of either gender.

Grown up pants are needed to make a relationship work. Self-serving behavior is just hook up culture, and that is a waste of human energy. The old ways are still the better way. Men had ethics, and women respected them for it. Now the only thing that garners respect is the men who steal and get away with it.

Sick.

Re: “The Coast obtains a heavily redacted copy of the province's contract with IBM

I have severe misgivings about this deal with the devil approach that the NS government is taking. IBM is well documented to having dubious dealing with the American gov (re. the Patriot act) as well as atrocious treatment of older employees.

While we do need to build a strong IT sector in this province, there is simply no good that comes of signing over our soul in order to achieve it. The corruption that this kind of thinking spawns is going to be a disaster for our future.

I work in the IT sector in this city, and the overall attitude towards workers here is a disgrace. The large companies (most in the industry know who I mean) are allowed to operate with a ennobled sense of righteousness now. They abuse labor laws and pretend they are something other then what they are in order to get listed as "Canada's top 50 employers".

These companies need to be called on their lies and abuse of employees and immigrants, just as the government is being accused of making bad deals. We should be asking who broached this deal? Did IBM approach NSgov or did the gov actually think IBM was worth coveting. Those are the answers I want from the government documents. Most of what I read there is typical corporate BS lines.
