Like the title sez, wow, has this ever gone off-topic. I'll ask the question to "Vic Fedeli, the mayor of North Bay": what are you going to do about it? People have a right to follow opportunity. In the full article, our esteemed fellow from Winnipeg has an idea: "Lloyd Axworthy, a fo...

This is perfect irony. >>Criticizing Bush and the Republicans...not anti-American<<< Read it AGAIN. I see "check" and "got ya", but then, when our other anon here (best post on this thread, other anon) makes the simple point that reasonable people are not foolish e...

"Does this bitter, hate-filled old socialist tapeworm really speak for the Vive community?" Depends on the degree to which you wish that such a statement were true. If your rhetorical position presupposes it, then it will likely appear that way. By the way, I disagree with your assessment:...

Various demographers would point out that the number of easily categorized groups in North America has multiplied significantly in the last century, and what's more they crosscut geographically and sometimes even ethnically. To some extent, all this silly nationalism (or facile criticism thereof) is...

But as we saw in the beef border closure, the "retaliation" was not about hurt feelings (despite the rhetoric and rationalizations), it was driven by some influential business lobbies to protect a bigger piece of their home market. Same goes for softwood--companies in the American southwes...

"At the economic level, China is replacing Canada as the largest source of U.S. imports" Misleading. To what degree is China impacting *our* trade with the U.S., and to what degree is China (and the other offshoring nations) increasing it's trade level simply by taking business formerly do...

"I can sell the most beautiful and tasty organic veal for $3/lb., although we'll have to raise this with our costs rapidly going up, yet, there're no buyers to speak of." Sounds like a marketing issue, or is there an artificial barrier to entry? Around here the organic meat producers don't...

"As far I'm concerned, the GDP is being used to mislead the public " Ah, there's the rub. Again, GDP in and of itself is merely a calculation. Any sane person who stands back and looks at the arithmetic would agree GDP does not and cannot account for certain things. I remember studying the...

"Ed, it's not that the parts are expected to wear out in a couple of years, it's that they are expected to be obsolete by then. It's an important distinction." Important distinction indeed. Also note that your skyrocketing *monthly* grocery bill isn't much less than you pay for a custom-bu...

Ed no doubt speaks of the application of GDP in justifying certain policies with which he disagrees. My response again: 1) GDP is a calculated metric, it can't be "fraudulent" unless someone lies about the answer. 2) Application of GDP to support certain political/economic concepts can bor...

"If GDP figures are fraudulent, then we probably should use something else as a standard for African relief or Kyoto targets. Maybe the richest country in the world is actually Mali?" GDP is not fraudulent. It's a metric. It's only fraudulent if you perform the calculation and then claim a...

I'm not the same anon from above, I just didn't sign in. My point was echoing PL's exactly: water *is* a strategic resource, listening to those who want pretend to treat it like any other commodity are kidding themselves, because it won't be once the power brokers get hold of it. So trading away the...
