  1. I agree with you Jimmy...ah, ah, I mean Robert........I sure wish you would go back to your old handle.....(Different discussion) sorry! But yes, much like the GST rebate, which is based on income...........I am just above the thresh hold, and drool over it every year, but I understand how and why, and don't disagree with the premise.......I think it is a good way to get it back to those in need
  2. I am sorry Sharpshooter, but some on your list are not in need....... Get it to the people in need! These are my and your tax dollars, and I just do not want them going to people that are not in need! And I do not like paying for those things that are extra's.............Rent, Food, electricity, bus passes, car and gas, if needed are good....................cell phones...no! Cigs....no! Pot....no!, Booze no! And I am not saying poor people or those in need are all doing that, but the fact is "Welfare Wednesday", sees a big boost of those things purchased. Most likely from those that do not "Need" social assistance of any sort. Those in "NEED", should be helped more. Not everyone "NEEDS"
  3. Hey, I sort of want to jump in here, if I may, not that what I am going to say is directly related to what you are going to say, but it does lead into what I wanted to say......so if you will pardon me, here we go........ AS I stated in the post above, I am Fiscally Conservative and Socially liberal. So I like these grants for the most part, but here is where my "BUT" enters.................................. I believe that those that need Cerb or any other program, should be so entitled, "BUT" I do not think those monies, I give, should be used for such things as beer, cigs, pot, cell phones for the kids, or other things that are bought in the name of "NEED", no they are not needed, they are perks and things that savings and working for provide. I have often caught my sister-in-law, who is on social assistance buy absolutely frivolous things, only to have to borrow money from us, that we know we will never get back. I find it totally ironic, that "some" of those in need go without, because the monies provided are not enough, while others who do not need it, collect it because they think it is their right. I am a "those in need, should get" kind of guy. I have a friend that owns a million+ dollar business, who applied for the $40,000 grant, not because he needed it, but because $10,000 of it was forgivable. I told him he was wrong, and I did not support in anyway his actions. It has caused me to question his ethics, thereby I feel a little different about him now. The worse thing is that he wants me to keep it quiet, as he knows some people would not agree with his actions...................no kidding Sherlock! So no, I do not think these programs are set up right, nor do I think everybody needs them. Ironically, I am retired, and on a pension...........I have been able to save more since Covid showed up, than before..................Ironic, don't you think? I am not eligible for Cerb or any other programs, including the 1 time senior grant, which I was too young for. For me it is about absolute need..........I am not there, so there fore I do not need. 80-% of British Columbians do not "NEED" so therefore, should not get! OK...I am done! Thanks! Sorry for interrupting!
  4. Here is my take Both Trump and the Democratic left extremists are most definitely a result of todays political climate, but thankfully Biden and the center of the Democratic party prevailed. IMO. the left side of the Democratic party is not the majority of the party, only the loudest. IMO, it is much the same as when the Greens were in the NDP and finally split, which would split the Democrats, and give Republicans the upper hand for years, which is why they may never split. Trump, had collected many disenfranchised Americans, who, IMO, were far more upset with a black man being President, which if you look back at Obama's presidency, was very controlled and positive. But we think of Americans as our equals, where in fact, many are far more fanatical and/or uneducated. They are as a people far more guided by economics, than social issues. In comparison, i believe Canadians as a whole have a social conscience. Take in case my red neck friends, where when I slow them down, and ask them pointed questions on social issues, will most likely agree with me. You can not do that to an American redneck,, as they simply will not listen to your points or questions. This is happening down there now. One of the funniest things I fine about the American right is they do not understand what Socialism is, and frankly are now one of the most protectionist countries in the world, where they use tariffs, and grants to help farmers that were effected by Trump and Republican policy. The other thing that mystifies me, is how a God fearing Republicans, can ignore Trumps attack on the poor and the needy, and on the health system. How is it possible to have a man like Trump who uses power and intimidation, who has some well documented moral issues, etc.......but many Republicans just choose to ignore these issues, and cast them off in the name of the all mighty dollar. I find it funny, that you put both Saunders and Trudeau in the same grouping as Trump, as I find the 2 others as fine decent men, with different beliefs than I. I will wonder out loud, how you compare them with Trump and compare their actions with those of Trump, which I listed? IMO, I worry that too many people can not differentiate that simplistic view. I hope not. I am totally ok with people having a different political view than I, if that view does not differ with my moral compass. It is then that I stand up and try to reason and hold them accountable. I personally believe in charity, love, and good will. And because I do not run for office, accept the majority rules, rule. I think most people do, but not Trump and his supporters. Some of which are so fanatical, they would go to war for Trump if asked......(I totally believe that of them) I believe Trump exhausts many Americans, and that is why for the majority, he is not viable......... As for you and I going for a beer, I totally agree with you, as we are half way there and both totally like beer, so we do have common ground. The radicals in US politics, would never listen long enough to look for common ground.........that is where I am at, buddy. What type of beer do you like? LOL
  5. Yes, I do agree with you, but feel that if he was with those other two, he would be in the middle of it, whether he has a choice or not........personally, I think he would think it was fun.................by the way.....I almost puked to put him in as a Canuck.........I friggin hate him. So Good point............but that was my thought process As for Sundin, he had so much skill..........they were forgettable years when he was here, but he was crazy good.......IMO
  6. Forwards Mogilny - Pettersson - Bure..................................Pure skill........I would put this line up against any line Naslund - Hank - Bertuzzi....................................Imagine an upgrade on Morrison Dank - Sundin - Linden.......................................not a bad third line Kesler - Messier - Smyl..................................What a pain in the arse to play against 13th forward without a doubt................................Burrows.............he could play on any line HM.........Tony Tanti, Thomas Gradin Defense Paul Reinhart - Quinn Hughes Mattais Ohlund - Jeff Brown Christian Ehrhoff - Chris Tanev 7th defenseman................Jyrki Lumme HM....................................Harold Snepts and Alex Edler Goalies Starter........................Roberto Luongo Backup.......................Kirk McLean HM..............................Richard Brodeur
  7. I am fiscally Conservative, socially liberal in my beliefs, and yet, I am so totally against what Trump represents Last night I was watching CNC late at night and a African American said that he was disappointed in Biden's lack of response to Trump in the final debate... The one thing that stuck out was his point that in The last Biden/Obama term, the growth of the stock market out paced what has happened in Trumps first term IMO, I think there are many more points of opportunity for Biden to roast Trump on......... IMO, and why I hi-lited your first paragraph, was that IMO, again Biden to me is not center of his party and is most probably substantially far more right of center, again of his party, which is why he had so much work being nominated. IMO, Trump is not central right, nor left of center, nor is he a Tea partier..............Trump is a Conservative bigot, which sees all that flows, should flow back to him, I also do not see him as a true Conservative. He is a vile man. I have to say, that because you have stated that you would pick Trump over Biden, It makes me question your moral compass. Please don't get me wrong, I love your posts, and your honesty, and your knowledge...............but! Trump is so morally corrupt, that I question how anyone could possibly, think he is a better alternative than anyone but satin. I would not trust him with my kids piggy bank. The list of his illegal and unethical moves, is unimaginable, there are so many......anyways I honestly expect them all to be somewhat corrupt, but he takes the cake. From his very own charities, to how he funnels money into his corporations, to how he hired his kids, to his taxes, to his twitter account, to his comments coming off the bus, to his firing and manipulation of bureaucrats, to how he handle Commey, to the unsupervised meetings with the Russians, to his handling of the KKK, and other white hate groups, to his handling of Covid, and his basic vulgar vocabulary........he is just a poor example of a man with Conservative views. Just Imagine those poor Mexican kids who have lost their parents..................these are the hi-lites of his Presidency .............how you or anyone else can choose him over Biden mystifies me. IMO, and I could be wrong, but his own party will vote him out, in what will be one of the most lop-sided elections in the history of the united States. I also think that the House and the Senate will be Democratically controlled. I am not sure I can honestly not take another term of him.
  8. Re: The Conservative Party I have a friend that ran Federally, he is a great guy, and loves to debate I had the good fortune to have a talk with him about Trump, and he just loves his politics......LOL This is a smart, articulate, and thoughtful guy................and some how, when push comes to shove, he loves Trump WE have agreed not to talk politics, for the sake of our friendship................but it does underscore, the politics of a Conservative Personally, I have a hard time to even grasping how someone that smart, can hold onto those ideals.......but there it is And although, the majority of Conservatives, may not agree with Trump directly, the root of their ideas are the same Way too far right for my way of thinking..........................
