At least when I throw out a comment the "Yankee" chat ceases for a line or two while you "speak" to those of us who don't care to endlessly "speak" political (seems to be the main language here).
Most times I find the conversations boring but once in a while there is something to "listen" to.(but that happens very rarely).
I just enjoy throwing in a comment once in a while... to see the verbal reaction. You know .. like throwing out something shiny on the ground and watching a whole murder of crows fight over it.

This is a country wide phenomenon and many folks like it.
One of the main reasons given was that U.S. politics is more interesting and exciting
It was also the view that who gets elected as the U.S. president is important not only to Canadians, as their main trading partner, but important to the world.

The US economy was going into the dumpster long before Obama.
...and no, it wasn't Bush either.
The left-right polarization of their politics is putting them into a gridlock where their system can't react as it should.
example...Obamacare. A bureaucratic nightmare that is much too complicated to run efficiently. Wasted money going to insurance companies, middle men, and pencil pushers long before it gets to the people that need healthcare. Why ? Because it couldn't be put into practice without giving all the Doctors, drug companies, insurance companies, politicians, HMO's all their piece of the profit.
Romney says he will dismantle Obamacare if elected....but he can't without a Repub Senate. All he can do is strangle it by regulating it to death.
The US system as a whole is very inefficient. That was ok in a closed, US-only economy, as the waste was spent in the USA and profitted Americans. Now however, with a global economy, waste increases debt, and that debt is sometimes owed to people/companies/countries that aren't American.
So yes...down the dumpster.

statusquo 10/27/2012 9:05:29 AM Report
I guess I have to be careful about what I post in here as some posters apparently get irritated when U.S politics are discussed.
Having said that, since there has not been a decapitation, a police bungling or a hit and run of a family pet as of late I really have no idea what to post except something about the by far most entertaining reality show there is......the U.S election .
We could talk about the non-event of Orazietti not running for the liberal leadership and then watch the regular airheads descent into "lefty" /"righty" babble ad nauseam.
Very rarely has any political thread in the Blue Room been conducted in a civil and constructive manner, be it federal. provincial or on U.S politics.
Folks voice their displeasure about the constant babble regarding the election south of the border but don't seem to mind the incessant , idiotic quacks of our resident cretin. Or the Bible quotes that come with a certain regularity. I scroll by for the most part.
For those who think that politics south of the border don't affect Canada , think again. Canada is utterly dependent on a healthy U.S economy and will remain so for the foreseeable future. Regardless of the outcome of the election, the U.S.A will remain the dominant military and economic force for some decades yet .
We as Canadians should be paying close attention on what goes on south of the border but also to what goes on in Ottawa under the current government.
China is on the rise but has slowed down considerably and internal turmoil and corruption is something we don't get to see . Yet Harper wants to strengthen economic ties with them, i.e he is working to push through something called the Canada-China Foreign Investment Protection Agreement (FIPA).
It this comes to fruition it will give China carte blanche to buy out Canada's natural resources....not just oil.
Under this trade agreement Chinese companies could sue Canadian governments, federal and provincial
outside the Canadian court system if our
government would try to enforce laws to protect Canadian interests such as the environment , labour laws etc.and such laws would be perceived to limit profits for said companies.
It would curtail Canada's sovereignty over the distribution of tax revenues and essentially paralyze our own government's input on job creation , environment , labour laws due to the Billion Dollar lawsuits that Chinese companies could pursue against our government .
Harper does not seem to have a problem with that. Sure Canada needs foreign investment to develop these resources but we should be more careful whom we borrow from and under what conditions.
After all, China is still a communist country with an atrocious human rights record, and a blatant disregard for the environment and a penchat for shutting down News channels if the content is not to their liking.
Ok...done....happy now?....The O and R were never mentioned.

Having said that, their (GOP's) business at any cost ie. environment, labour and their lack of respect for other countries (ie. Iraq) right to sovereignty over their own country, is at the root of my dislike for them. At their heart, it is profit and greed...nothing more than that.

I admired Jean Chretien as when it came to the economy he was pretty far right and when it came to social issues he was a little left. That said He and Martin paid down the debt while Harper has added over 200 Billion to ours and still climbing. That said it appears he was an effective Conservative while Harper is a free spending Reformer. Actions speak to me not rhetoric.

That said I was one of his most vocal critics but found it hard to believe that the backlash would elect a dud like Hayes.

Since we're talking US politics, here's what's coming out latley about the Benghazi massacre that Obamma is lying about. (you know the one where Obummer allowed four of his own citizens to be murdered and didn't lift a finger to help, all in the name of political expediency)
These are facts that Obummer is denying and dodging;
Washington officials watched, received emails and denied calls for help in real-time.
The State Department was watching the attack live, in real-time.
Emails were sent to some 400 people in Washington DURING the attack, in real-time.
Among the recipients of those emails was the White House Situation room.
At the time those emails arrived at the White House Situation Room, Obama was meeting with his Security Team.
The calls for help from the CIA operatives were NOT ignored and did NOT go unanswered. The requests to enter the fight from bases in Italy were NOT ignored and did NOT go unanswered.
All were DENIED.
Two of the Americans that were murdered were at one point on the roof of the annex and from their vantage point, could see the position of the mortars being fired at them. They “painted” that position with a laser used to guide weapons from military aircraft.
But the aircraft, which could have included Blackhawk helicopters and a C-130 gun ship, (which is specifically designed for close air support roles supporting ground troops, and flying urban ops)had also been ordered to stand down.
Obummers Worst Nightmare is catching up with him.
Now let's hear from the President of the Maroons for Obummer Society and his underlings...:)

The pneumonia shot is - no cost.However the shingles shot is - $190.Unless I have private insurance.
Now I've had shingles and really don't want it again. And I can afford the $190. But my understanding is these shots are a bit of a risk.

It appears as if roughly half the people in this country think that they're in mortal danger from their own government. That's a lot of people sensing a lot of malice and threat. I worry that I don't see it. Sure, I see inefficiency and incompetence, but I've always seen that - regardless of which party's in office. And frankly, I've always welcomed it. I don't like my big bureaucracies to be cold, calculating, profit-making enterprises driven by a steely, clear-headed singular vision. A cursory glance through history would indicate that well-organized governments tend to enjoy well-organized parades, followed by well-organized ethnic cleansing. Which is why I celebrate the magnificent, muddle-headed ineptitude of our democracy. As far as I'm concerned, a little confusion and waste may keep the trains from running on time, but it also keeps people like me from getting a one-way ticket in a cattle car. Are our tax dollars being misspent on poorly run social programs? You bet! Do we get more buck for our bang at the local Post Office, Amtrak station, nuclear submarine or methadone clinic? Of course we do! But keep in mind that bureaucrats who can't find their ass with a flashlight and a hand mirror are not likely to find you either.

To me, the attitude is, well, we'll just sit back and see if anyone steps up to help, then we'll decide what to do :( Again, a crisis situation ( sort of reminds me of the failure of action in Elliot Lake), let's not do this again. This will cost millions of dollars to fix, and also millions of dollars more on shipments to take the long way around. The highway should be gone over with a fine tooth comb , as who knows where it will let go now.
Also with more rain/snow in the forcast, it's not looking good for Wawa right now.

If you ask the truckers, Grump, yuo will learn that it is a terrible route. Not to mention very long especially if heading to Southern Ontario. Not all the trucks are licensed to go into the States so for a lot of them that is not an option. Of course I guess they could ship out of Thunder bay by boat to Southern Ontario instead of hwy 11. Just think of how long it will take SSM to get anything from the west.

If our friends in Wawa have the same experience many of us have had with our insurance companies they had better be prepared to wait and fight.
They will probably eventually win but what the heck do they do in the meantime?

If and when Big Business can't move goods in an 'expedient manner' something is not going to happen.
As for the reason - an Act of God is insurancespeak for 'sorry sucker you're screwed'.

This is not the first time this highway was closed due to wash outs.

Always remember watching a normally slow river rage through where the day before there was a bridge.
About ten years or so two houses slid down a 50 foot embankment on the Goulais river..

Horrifying, yes, i'm sure the people who have lost their businesses, homes, vehicles, personal belongings, would agree with you that it is a humbling experience and are totally awe inspired by the whole thing.

I'm sure they also agree that it is amazing that the water destroyed the highway and that there is no way out or in , possibly for days, and that at best it would just be a cow trail for now.
i'll bet they also agree that getting air lifted out of their homes was a pleasant experience and having to stay somewhere else.
I'm also sure that the people on the reserves are also happy that they've been evacuated from their homes too, and having to live elsewhere.

No Grace no Wawinions are rioting yet not sure that will happen anymore than usual on a Saturday night LOL.
We have lots of groceries and stuff as highway 101 is open in one lane so we can get out if need be!
The crews are working very hard here to get the roads open, I know that quite a few of them were stranded between washouts overnight were flown off them at 3 pm the next day they went home ate and were back out at it. My cousins husband and friend's hubby have not been home for more than an hour at a time since this has started. It is a very humbling experience but it has been a blessing too no one was injured or died and we are extremely thankful for that. It has also pulled us together as a community big time!
