“Each employee has more responsibility, in that rather than being responsible for x widgets, he's now responsible for x * the increase in productivity. Shouldn't said worker now be justified in receiving a higher amount of income?”

“Why shouldn't the employees be able to collectively request a portion of the increase? After all, capital should be partnered with labour, not own it, right?

On the other hand you could try and justify it by taking the position that the owner doesn't owe the employees anything, but what is society but an unwritten contract to treat others with some level of respect and consideration?”

“Was there not a 7+ magnitude earthquake occurring in the region over the past week or two? I wish Dr. Suzuki would leave the scare tactics to the Conservatives.”

Indigo Crow on Nov 4, 2013 at 19:08:18

“The latest quake occurred out in the ocean. The effect at the disaster site were not full on epicenter consequences.
Good for you. You have great faith the Earth will heed your agenda.
That said. I won't be hysterical about this FUBAR catastrophe.
The nay sayers and nuke minimizers are the one's
who seem hysterical in pushing the agenda they appear to have.
The constant refrains from nuke defenders labeling reasoned comments from
folks like me as 'hysterical' are sadly divisive. And mostly unjustified.
People need solid information. TEPCO and Abe ladle out radioactive deception like pablum to orphans.
I prefer to know when my skepticism needs a rest.
I only have skepticism about the information given by TEPCO & Abe as well as the bumpf disseminated by the nuclear industrial complex.
None of us will be saying, "I told you so" if a 7+ quake strikes Fukushima at it's epicentre.
We won't be thinking of you.
You won't be thinking about us.
We will all be making other plans.”

“There was, and it was in the ocean fairly close to Fukushima. Earthquakes are a daily occurence there, but the bad ones are thankfully less frequent.”

“The PS4 is part of the 8th generation of consoles, I believe. What they were referring to might be better stated as the first batch of PS4s.”

Justin Ray82 on Oct 15, 2013 at 17:38:47

“Yes, I understand that, but that is not what is implied. Clarification and detail is extremely important and is why i stated the Playstation in general and how the PS4 is the 4th Generation of the Playstation. We are not talking about Atari, Sega genesis or any of those, the topic was specifically on Playstation. Also, the argument was about quality of the system because of it being a 1st gen next gen console which is silly and makes little to no sense as it is all an upgrade to the PS3, not a whole new system. It still has a processor, graphics card and ram, just better of that in the PS4.”

NDP Caucus Retreat: Tom Mulcair Says Liberals To Blame For Increasing Income Inequality

NDP Caucus Retreat: Tom Mulcair Says Liberals To Blame For Increasing Income Inequality

Commented Sep 11, 2013 at 15:19:28 in Canada Politics

“As a progressive voter unlikely to vote either for the NDP or the Grits in the next election, my biggest problem with Tom Mulcair is that he seems to be trying to flank the Liberals to the center. Aren't there already enough centrists in Canada? Isn't that really why we've been muddling through mediocrity for the past X years? Get someone with a vision, so as to lead the masses rather than follow them with polls and questionnaires.”

Allan Beveridge on Sep 11, 2013 at 20:19:55

“There is only one centrist party in Canada and that is the LPC. The Reformer's are right and extreme right wingers and the NDP are on the left though Mulcair seems to be trying to pretend he is more centrist than he or his party are.

Progressive's are "intellectuals" people who understand shades of grey, complexity and context. This is the antithesis of the Reformer's and Harper. That's why they make such statements as "you either support this bill or you are with pedophiles" or "you support our crime bill or you are for coddling murder's or their going free" and "you either fully support the Israel government or you are anti-semitic and support terrorists and terrorism".

In deductive reasoning such arguments are generally referred to as false dichotomies as the intent is to remove all context and complexity so that a number of possible options are reduced to two. Politicians like Harper do this because it appeals to the lowest common denominator and allows them to play upon people's fears as a motivator to vote for them.”

ScottinOttawa on Sep 11, 2013 at 19:22:24

“"a progressive voter unlikely to vote either for the NDP or the Grits" ...I think you are a little confused with the definition of progressive. Especially if you voted for a recessive reform con in the past.”

“No, she isn't wrong about those things. Where the problem lies is firstly, her seeming assumption that drugs are only available on Vancouver.

That is a big claim to make, and her single data point of overhearing some teens in a coffee shop isn't gonna cut it.”
