Trump floats eliminating U.S. income tax and replacing it with tariffs on imports
  • things made overseas that are cheapest to buy in the US

    Things that are made overseas because American business owners outsourced the manufacturing jobs to the countries with the cheapest labour (and also the least worker protections)?

  • Uber calls B.C. gig-worker wages, job protections 'unreasonable'
  • Ride-hailing company Uber is slamming the British Columbia government's decision to impose minimum wages and basic labour protections for gig workers,

    Uber can get fucked.

    If you can't figure out how to pay your workers properly, and follow the law on "basic labour protections", you don't deserve to be in business.

  • AOC backs Hunter Biden verdict and says its proof Dems are ‘willing to accept when our justice system works’
  • Counterpoint, no rights are absolute. There are conditions and restrictions on every "fundamental constitutional right."

    Further to that point, rights come with responsibilities. If you are going to forfeit those responsibilities to society then you are going to also forfeit some of the associated rights granted by society.

  • Hunter Biden convicted of three felony counts in federal gun trial
  • I'm not willing to blame Biden for Netanyahu's crimes.

    There is no president in my lifetime that would have treated Israel signifigantly less kindly than the current administration has.

    Lesser of two evils, right?

    Yes, actually. Trump absolutely would have continued sucking up to the Israeligovernment, rather than attempting to have the combatants negotiate a cease fire.

  • Hunter Biden convicted of three felony counts in federal gun trial
  • would you really not vote for him if he was the Dem nominee?

    Absolutely. I prefer my lawmakers to not be convicted criminals.

    Though, if your hypothetical had both candidates being convicted criminals, then I'd have to look closer at the alternatives, as well as examine how damaging the 2 criminals are likely to be going forward, shoukd they gain power.

  • U.S.-style oil megadeals viable in Canada, BMO energy banker says
  • I think nationalizing the industry is a far better state than what we have now

    You may recall that was attempted in small part with the creation of Petro Canada.

    And that it was subsequently privatized by a subsequent conservative government.

  • Why don't electric car manufacurers put solar panels on the car roofs?
  • On the other hand: most cars are not moved 23h a day. They just stand around.

    It doesn't take much shade to have a signifigant reduction in the output of a solar panel.

    Unless you are parking in an open field with no trees or tall buildings around, your power generation will be signifigantly reduced.

    Not that the amount of power generated by a panel the size of a car roof is all that much, even under ideal conditions.

  • L.A. County wants to cap rent hikes at 3%. Landlords say that would push them to sell
  • Because they're over leveraged. They've purchased assets when rates were low and now that rates have gone up they haven't factored this into their profit margins

    Nobody forced them to make risky business decisions.

    This is the consequences of their actions and shouldn't be anyone else's problem.

  • Resource That Shows Who Owns the Internet Lines in Your Area
  • The resellers still use (and pay fees to) those incumbent networks who own the physical infrastructure.

    And they're reliant on those networks they are competing with to respond to outages in a timely manner.

    You're fooling yourself is you think you are significantly hurting "the big guys" by going with a reseller.

    The only reason to go with a reseller is if they offer better plans.

  • Rocky Mountain employers in Alberta see major boost in temporary foreign worker approvals

    The trend isn't confined to the Bow Valley or even to Alberta. The federal government has temporarily eased limits on how many temporary foreign workers a business can hire in low-wage positions, and employers across Canada have increasingly made use of the program.


    Stanley Cup

    So... who do you want to win the cup? Paul Maurice, after bailing out on us? Or Vegas, so we can say "at least we lost to the hardest team to beat"?
