“Since interest rates fell to near zero for purchases of homes and student loans, we've seen a spike in prices. Young people with wealthy parents fair better because they have access to better education, cash support and a co-signer for their first property investments. Wealth disparity gap widens and class tension is rising in Canada.”

“Republicans should do like the Nazis did after WW2 and make isolated time capsule communities in the Jungles of Central America. Republicans are NOT welcome in Canada. We have single payer healthcare, lax drug laws and 5 political parties in the House of Commons.”

“When Newfoundland and Labrador merged, do you think they came up with a new name? No, that's why that province is called Newfoundland and Labrador. That's why the new province will be called.. "Nova Scotia New Brunswick and Prince Edward Island." Watch and see.”

“Actually, Newfoundland and Labrador never merged, what happened was that the Dominion of Canada and the Dominion of Newfoundland had a dispute over who ruled Labrador and where the border was. This is a reason why many Quebec maps show Labrador as part of Quebec as they did not like the Privy Council's ruling. Some thought Newfoundland should only get the coast but the Privy Council ruled that all the rivers flowing down to the ocean also must be in Newfoundland, which is how the borders are as they are. The Dominion of Newfoundland continued to be so named, and after joining Canada it remained Newfoundland. The province was renamed Newfoundland and Labrador about ten years ago.”
“I'll put it to you this way. If you are against the Tea Party and right wing obsession with making decisions and comments without any facts, if you are against that kind of ignorance and ill informed statements in general, you should know what you're talking about before you say it. You need to give things a chance and opt for tolerance rather than making juvenile assertions. You're making comments that are exactly what I'd expect from a Tea Party activist.
I am not a fan of Fraser and I am really not a fan of KG either, but I have to show respect for what he and the writers of Boss said about how politics works from the inside. So what I'm saying is from ALL accounts, "Boss" is quality and does NOT say doggie doo on it, it says " Here is an intelligent conversation about political actors and their motives which provides a great explanation of why the USA is so F'd up right now politically." If you are well informed and consider yourself anti-tea party, you have to be open and non prejudice. You have to make informed judgements, and you have to avoid making cheap remarks that make you feel clever but actually reveal your willful ignorance.
If you don't like the tea baggers, stop acting like them.”
“Well perhaps you should watch something before making uninformed comments. Truth is that KG provides the most interesting and accurate portrayal of a power mad politician that has ever been on TV. He provided an extremely accurate portrayal of how so called Chicago Machine Politics operates. After watching the show I was very surprised to learn that he's a conservative.”

“I'm very well informed. Don't care for KG, so why should I watch him and waste my life? If a bag says "doggie doo, eat me" should I try it to see if it was it says it contains? I think not.”
“Boss was a great show, probably very accurate, but it's sickeningly dark. Who exactly am I supposed to like and root for?”

“Well, it's covering very dark subject matter. Were you expecting a comedy about terminally ill corrupt politicians?”

“They got a lot of criticism for that and it seemed like they were setting up Sanaa Lathan's character to be the one redeeming character in the series to root for (even though she and her family had just been sc.rewed over by Kane).
I got the sense that they were planning on expanding her role in a third season when she sought to get payback against Kane for spying on her and her family.
But you're right;
All the other characters were largely detestable, duplicitous, manipulative, petty, self-serving and generally loathsome.”

“cheer for how it exposed the utter corruption of politics. somebody has to!”
