“With all due respect to the young Lad and his skills, if this article is true, a 17 year old in Formula one is ridiculous. I would hope that this is simply a gimmick at least set the Bar at 21 Vettel was young enough to be put into the grid.
There are a lot of things he can do to better prepare him for his F! start between now and 21 and he will be better prepared to hold his own with the Big boys plus if something does go wrong he actually contributed to the decision and was prepared to the best of his ability for the outcome.”

“The Flag here is at a time when our Education systems should be revamping and the loss of students out of the workforce before at least College is achieved should be minimized or in fact eliminated.
We are moving in the other direction, we are building a workforce that match's the 25% unemployable, instead of the 75% and people are not going to live in squalor without push back so societal break down will occur.
Interesting times ahead and we definitely need to prepare to embrace it, not try and run away from it or we will end up being just a horse.”

“This current Government will do what ever it can to reduce taxation on the Rich or the Corporate Elite, and then cleverly coach it as a much needed Austerity measure.
Whether it's the reduction of Mail Service, without even feed back from the Tax Payer or the move of eligibility for Canadians that have worked in this country their entire life to receive a decent pension.
Canadian Tax Payer lifetime working in Canada $6,800, Pm 10 years of interesting governance $233,000, seems fair to me.”

“Harpo and crew is not going to move against a Western Billionaire with an election in the offing. Plus Harpo has proved that his inane actions actually seem to have had the positive benefit to his positions he was looking for.
Since he removed all of the scientists that may of found some fault with the discharge of 1000's of tons of polluted Sludges into the various fisheries and eco systems. Without some knowledgeable experts to investigate, the Government will simply pretend it didn't really happen or even if reasonable thought will make them concede that it did actually occur?.
He will have some third rate hack make up a "Native" news article in support of the Governments views. Remember now these new "Native" new articles give governments and business the ability to cleverly cloak a completely fictional account of events in what would otherwise be seen as a noteworthy news article and not have to clearly declare that in fact it is just an Ad or Position of the Ad's sponsor.
It's quite a time we are in, here is hoping that the Harper Governments can't fool all of the people all of the time, and come 2015 they will see the error of their ways.”

“The problem with Apple is no different than what happened to IBM or Microsoft they started to believe their own Marketing materials. They believed basically they could say, do or produce, anything they wanted, and as long as they put their Logo on it, people would pay what ever they asked for it.
Apple no longer has Jobs, their Innovation or the ability for a Corporation to take "Risk" without a Jobs backing it. No Apple now has moved to incremental Upgrades and product expansion and that doesn't appease the Apple faithful.
They want to have the security of an Old boys Corporate Risk Model but still be perceived as the Risk taking innovative Corporation of old.
On Top of that, they have restricted their accessories in such away to make their clients pay through the nose for what other companies throw in for free or standardize across their Companies product lines as a benefit to being a Corporate client. (Battery Charger adapter change for IPhone 5, restricted IOS)
There is some truth to the fact that Apple, because of their success has further to fall than others but they also have a larger client base to stop them from falling if they chose to actually start to listen. People who say that low price is what's causing Apples reduced Sales, really don't understand the Apple Client Base, at all.”

“The problem with any RefoormCon Transparency programs especially when associated with First Nations is that they don't talk to First Nations. They simply make demands and then plow ahead there are lot's of ways to make First Nations more accountable through a clearly defined set of agreed to Policies and Programs.
Now I realise from a RefoormCon point of view it's always nicer to have people placed in stocks and have a variety of items available to throw at them to maintain support from the Conservative base.
However they are a separate Nation and can you imagine if we respected them as such.
I mean why don't we bring in the same legislation and see how it fares with our dealing with the new EU Free Trade Agreement or the new TPP.
People would say that's ridiculous but for first Nations who's land most of us either cross, live on, or have our individual taxes reduced because of revenue made from. that's okay.
We need to treat them with at least the same respect that we would treat Germany or Japan who at one time wanted to wipe us off the planet.
The other small item that one might want to at least look at, is that our current Government, especially the ultra secretive PMO's office, is by far the least Transparent Government in Canada's History.
We still don't know what happened to the 2 Billion Dollars that simply disappeared from the RefoormCons books with no accountability or response.”

“Well it is Julian Fantino a man (term used loosely) whos moral integrity has been on display for Canadians to judge for themselves over the last few years.
Mr. Trudeau will have to get used to the existing RefoormCon Governments attacks. They will only get worse as the election starts to get closer to reality, really, what else does the Conservative Government have to run on, certainly not their record.
This is going to be one of the dirtiest Campaigns ever run by the RefoormCons they have no choice they certainly dont want Canadians to ask them pertinent questions regarding how they have been running the country over the past 5 years. They will not let little things like the truth or reality get in the way of their attack adds, they will fall back on their old faithful basket of old, lies, deceit, misdirection, innuendo, and last but not least, Fear.
We have quite the mess to clean up, hold fast, search for the truth, and Vote.”

“The first group that should have to answer for this disaster is the BC Environment Ministry, now it's always been know that they are a running joke and the poor officers in the field are sent out there with no teeth but the Province should come clean about how this could happen. The Minister should resign we all know it will be some Environmental officer that was on holidays that really was the cause because lets face it, it's never the top of a government Branch that gets blamed.
The one thing that people can take away from this is that this spill could not of happened without lax Regulations or lack of enforcement they knew they were adding to the Berms yet did nothing to stop them. It take two parties to make this mess and while we should know by now that a Entrepreneur is going to be driven by greed and will take those risks to try and grow Margin. What exactly is the Ministries excuse.”

“How can the Police fear Drug overdoses after all we have had this War on drugs for 40 years now and it's been so successful.
Heck it may force kids to buy off of Street Vendors and Back allies far better than a Government controlled substance complete with education and controls.
The real truthful and sad part here is that we are killing the kids at the Concert, through Inaction and Religious Dogma and Fear.
We would rather try to hide the problem and pretend it doesn't exist. Mean while of course, putting children/kids in jails and funding gangs instead of looking at a logical government control structure for these substances.
Hopefully with a new Federal Government in 2015 we can actually have a new informed approach to all aspects of the Drug issue instead of continuing to throw good money after bad.
I would also like to know how many of those supposed Drug deaths had more to do with Alcohol, than the drugs, or how many kids will be permanently harmed due to alcohol at this and other concerts. We know that 1 person dies every hour to alcohol related disease oh but it's safe and of course Legal.
Remember the number 1 selling alcohol in the States is "Tequila", good thing that evil Pot is illegal, I mean really how Crazy is that?”

“All this is proving is that all of the Free Trade agreements are only benefiting the Rich. Who hold no country as theirs unless their is a Profit to be made or a tax benefit to be had.
Our current Government will do nothing to help support employment for the average Canadian by ensuring that companies that sell in this country employ people in this country and they don't even support advanced trade skills (TFW's) by not even forcing Value added jobs to accompany the utilization of our resources.
They of course will blame Canadians wanting decent wage or the union but the facts are simple no matter what you give Big Business. They will want more and the only way to get them to invest in the countries they sell their products or services in is to restrict their ability to do so. Unless they invest or hire in those countries.
Long and short the Deck is set to keep the rich very, the poor very, and the elimination of that pesky middleclass. RefoormCon Trickle down Magic.”

“I don't understand your point regarding value-added jobs. Do you believe our GDP would go up if we stopped selling the resources raw and insist on turning it into products instead? That's a very dodgy proposition.
Companies that want to buy those resources want them raw. That's kind of the point, after all. That's where they make their profits. A company that builds chairs wants to buy wood. There's no point in offering them chairs.
If we choose to sell chairs instead, and bypass the purchaser of wood, we find ourselves competing at a disadvantage in other markets - especially if you abandon your trade deals. We're less efficient, and we lack economies of scale. Our chairs cost more than equivalent chairs made elsewhere.
The same goes for crude oil, another target of the value-add argument. Markets don't want refined products - they want crude. It's more versatile for the purchaser.
In short, having the government dictate that we retool our economy to serve areas in which we are not competitive would be costly and dangerous. Perhaps instituting incentives for some types of investment would be reasonable. However, in general if something makes economic sense, the government isn't necessary to guide it into being.”

“It could of been a whole lot worse they could of passed out Alcohol, it is interesting that this is in some way a thinly veiled negative attack on how Pot now is becoming mainstream.
No one even mentions the rampant use of pharmaceuticals, no one says how they say Oxycodone (opiates) (bad stuff) great sales, and addictive, but pharmaceuticals have 5 new patents out all that take the existing level of opiate in their pain killers (heavy on the killers) and take them up to as high as 10 times stronger than the current levels, (did I mention that they were very addictive).
Now lets talk about our friend Alcohol. One person dies every hour from alcohol related disease (anyone know the stats for Pot). The number one selling alcohol is the States is Tequila, (now if that one word, does not signify responsible drinking. I do not know what does).”

Do look up the audit that Ford did himself when he got into office. It shines a pretty nice light on Miller. All this nonsense you uneducated people spew about Miller only comes from Ford propaganda. This city ran well until the dumb garbage truck driver's strike. It ran so well, Ford was able to ride on Millers coat tails of surplus money and beneficial programs for his first years. Just go and look up that audit before you respond.”
