Good morning everyone, have a great day. See that is what happens when all you old folks stay up too late blogging. You can't haul your old butts out of the sack in the morning. I believe the work ethic is going to be a rude awakening to many but times are changing and I see that happening. Unions are on the decline mainly due to greed and electing and keeping mostly poor leadership. Business is struggling in the Global economy so all in all it's not shaping up for pretty. That said I hope everyone is having a great Labour Day Weekend. Stay safe

Good Morning All: I thought perhaps we could think about the current poll on Sootoday. Should safety measures such as this be regulated by law? Having such law would require enforcement. Do our law enforcement officers have too little to do? In the same vein, I think I read recently that Michigan did away with the requirement of safety helmets for motorcyclists. Is this an effort to clorinate the gene pool, or is it an effort to raise the number of organ donors?

gcubed, good morning. I rode up to about 5 years ago and I'm not sure if it was old age, lack of time or finally a few brains that made me quit. I don't know what the official thinking is but helmets save the skull but generally break the neck in an accident. One way is death the other is crippled so it's not much of a choice for the rider but a pretty clear choice for the Health Care system that is struggling with increasing costs. Riding is a great thrill but as with extreme sports the risks are high. Say hello to the boss and have a great day.

Ask and you shall receive,although I find it sad that a Canadian has to explain it to you.
President Obama has:
a.Slowed down the recession. Nobody is talking depression anymore, and some are talking recovery.
b.Saved Wall Street. And Wall Street tried to punk him by paying itself first. In addition,he exposed the absence of regulatory oversight on Wall Street.
c.Prevented the collapse of the American automotive industry.
d.Got America out of Iraq after a loss of thousands of American lives and a realization that G.W. lied about weapons of mass destruction.
Also worthy of note President Obama got rid of Bin Laden which Georgy Porgy only talked about and Romney has criticized
e.Relaxed Anti-American tensions throughout the world.
f.Closed the prisoner “torture camp” at Guantanamo Bay. Holding prisoners for eight years without charging them was acceptable under the previous administration. It is not acceptable under this administration.
g.Made the environment a national priority, and a primary source for job creation.
h.Made education a national priority
i.Passed universal health care, with a public option, to insure everybody in America has care when they are sick. He’s did it, despite vilification of ideologues and vested interests. Romney had Romneycare and now wants to get rid of Obama care which make Romney Hypocrite in chief.America now has what other, more humane, countries have had for years
j.President Obama has restored credibility to the American Presidency

Profit increases such as reported this past week are more appropriate to the junior mining outfits. Canada's largest bank enjoyed a profit increase of 70% in the latest quarter. That's seventy percent for goodness sake! That at a time when the economy as a whole grew by less than 2%. Canada's financial regulators need to realize that this industry needs some competition. Let's get some foreign banks in here and soon.
Profits are fine and dandy but that is ridiculous. Incidentally, the last I heard from my bank was to advise me of a whole litany of fee increases.

I have never wrote that I think that Obama is some hero, but he was handicapped from the beginning. Two wars, a housing crisis brought on by Wall Street scam artists(who are still controlling the reins), bank failures, an automotive industry self imploding, Republicans who were and still control both the House and the Senate(re-writing or defeating any large piece of legislation) and having to implement the Bush tax cuts. He has done a "B" job in the three years. Besides, knowing how the US Government works, it is surprising if anything can get done. Partisanship is at an all time high and everything, including committees, sub-committees, and the judiciary fall along party ideology.
Snobank 9/2/2012 3:50:22 PM Report
I'm reposting something I wrote late last night. Either it was too late for anyone to read, or, it wasn't worthy of comment. Anyway, here it comes again ...
As a socialist democracy we Canadians exist with two contradictory and competing concepts, both of which are necessary. We have capitalism, whose function is to increase profit for its owner(s). We have socialism whose function, very simply put, is to spread around the largess as evenly as possible among the populace. They exist with an uneasy tension between them.
Personally, I think this is a workable ideal. At least nothing better comes to mind. It does present though, an eternal dichotomy. Owners believe, with some justification, that as owners the profit belongs to them. If we didn't have owners taking risks and trying to make a profit there wouldn't be businesses. When something tends to cut their profits they believe that this is unfair.
Socialists, (read union workers,) believe they need to be rewarded more fairly because without them to do the work the owners would not be able to make the product(s) that produce the profits. They believe not receiving more of the profit is unfair.
Unions and owners will always believe the other side is demanding too much of what they themselves should rightly have. It is important to realize that they will never strike a perfect balance. There will never be a perfect contract. Owners will always believe that workers have and demand too much. Workers will always believe that they are not receiving their fair share. There will never be a perfect balance.
Conservatives will side with industrialists. Liberals will side with labour. The balance will always swing back and forth. Each side will always believe the other is unreasonable and of questionable character and virtue.
We have a democracy so we will vote parties representing different parties in and out as the times seem fit. In good times labour will make gains. In bad times management will take some of those gains back. In really bad times the situation will screw up completely and entire industries or economies will fail.
So what? History will march on, perhaps with a better system, but until then socialistic democracy seems to be the best method we have devised, albeit imperfectly, to try to merge capitalism with social justice for the masses.
So what? We'll all be dust some day anyway.
Happy Labour Day weekend everybody.

All Is Well 9/2/2012 5:44:36 PM Report
The Congress is the Legislative Branch. Its main function is to make laws.
The House of Representatives is currently composed of four hundred and thirty-five members.
The Senate and the House are both required to approve legislation before it becomes a law. The two houses are equal in legislative power, but revenue bills (bills relating to taxation) may only originate in the House. However, as with any other bill, the Senate's approval is still required, and the Senate may amend such bills.
While most votes require a simple majority to pass, it sometimes takes three-fifths of senators to bring a bill to a vote.
You are correct, Blues. When Obama was elected, the Republicans had one seat better than the Democrats. Since then the Dems have more seats, with the House held by the Republicans. But with only a few seats separating the parties in the Senate and sometimes three-fifths approval needed for a bill to pass you see that there is a lot to give up to get law enacted.

I have comprised the top ten reasons that Obama will not get re-elected.
I have sent a copy to David Letterman but I'm betting that pinko won't air them.
10. Unemployment after 4 years of Keynesian economics is still over 9%. If Americans are out of work so will be the President.
9. US debt is over 14 trillion dollars and counting. He tripled the debt. Him and his cronies have had a party and our children will have to pay.
8. The budget is not yet balanced and 60 percent of the money goes to Obama's entitlements and vacations.
Continues setting presidential golf records.
7. Obama looks exhausted. As a leader he physically looks like life is a chore. He looks too skinny and will lose some votes based on his looks. I know it is superficial but people vote on this.
6. Mysterious past. From which passport he used to got to Pakistan to college records, to fake social security number and drug use.
5. He accepted the Nobel peace prize for nothing.
4. Half the country is conservative.
3. International leaders respect him only for his title rather than his ability to shake hands, bow and kiss rings.
Putin embarrasses him.
An Asian dictator embarrasses him.
A Middle Eastern Emir embarrasses him.
Chavez makes him look bad
2. 2012 is the apocalypse?
....and the number one reason Obama won't get re-elected.

The almost insurmountable National U.S debt is, by popular belief, blamed on liberal policies and by extension on the democrats. But the charts say it ain't so!
The facts are that the U.S Congress was only Democratic 8 out 20 years, and in those 8 years, on average, Congress passed far leaner budgets than the then Republican presidents were asking for.
Googling a variety of sources for budget charts, under Reagan and the two Bushes one can clearly see the ballooning of the national debt.
Under Ronnie Reagan and Herbie Bush a 3.5 Trillion increase.
But wait...there is more....Doubleya added an additional 6 Trillion!..that is almost 10 Trillion and I haven't even added interest!
Under Clinton the graph line stabilizes a bit but at least it's not going up.
During Doubleya's eight year reign of ineptitude it spikes up drastically.
It all started in the early eighties under Reagan's Voodoo economics, a theory that by now has been dismissed as just that!
