    WTF?

    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.

    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.

    The father's lawyer Kim Beaudoin said the disciplinary measures were for the girl's "own protection" and is appealing the ruling.

    I would have thought it impossible but Canadian courts and politicians are far more retarded than our own and that is saying something.

    Where did a 12 year old come up with enough money to hire a lawyer?

    In actual dollars, President Obama’s $4.4 trillion in deficit spending in just three years is 37 percent higher than the previous record of $3.2 trillion (held by President George W. Bush) in deficit spending for an entire presidency. It’s no small feat to demolish an 8-year record in just 3 years.

    Under Obama’s own projections, interest payments on the debt are on course to triple from 2010 (his first budgetary year) to 2018, climbing from $196 billion to $685 billion annually.

    My guess would be that the lawyer was court-appointed.

    The only thing more incredible than the court's decision would be the wasting of taxpayer money to file the case.

    This is one reason that I am glad that I home-school my children!!

    They know that their "rights" are only those that *I* grant them, until they are 18! :D:D

    Only ONCE in all these parenting years, has one of them threatened to call DFCS on me...
    I had him up against the wall at the time. I reached around the corner, grabbed the phone, and threatened to dial it for him!
    And I told him that if they wanted to come get him, to "protect" him, then they could come and get him right then!!
    He declined my generous offer.
    Go figure!
