Canadian Politics / Re: Canada's Economy Has its Strongest Growth in 17 Years
« Last post by Blueblood on October 17, 2017, 12:10:10 am »
The economy growing at over 3% is why the liberals will win in 2019.  Iím wondering if the higher than Normal growth is due to the USA economy getting back on its feet which benefits central Canada.  The economy did as good as it could during the Harper and Martin years as well with growth and deficit reduction.  My worry is that a sizeable portion of the Canadian economy is tied to rapidly inflating house prices in Toronto and Vancouver along with the USA which is on a long bull run.  Itís unfortunate that energy east got canned as that would have helped the economy as well in a more stable fashion.

If the house prices in Toronto and Vancouver go on a long term downswing, the liberals are in trouble.

Especially now. 

Emails ?  Trump's team was running private servers.  They were asking Russia for money, making deals with them.

He's a business man. Does business with China too. And I am sure he is done deals with the Saudis. I am in no way painting Trump as a saint. He's a complete idiot. But as far as I am concerned he is simply the current puppet in the White House, nothing more.

Forget the crooked stuff and the hypocrisy.  Now look at the incompetence of the team, the complete incompetence by the leader, and his inability to run a team, to operate politically, to speak properly or deal with even his own party.

Oh hell yeah, it's a damn train wreck. I did not predict otherwise. I had no doubt it would be a clown show with Trump.

Nobody can reasonably say those choices were equal... to say so is effectively trolling.

I doubt you are qualified to determine what trolling really consists of. But you are right, they were not equal choices. This is why Trump won. Clinton has been loosing for years. Otherwise she would have beaten Obama on the first round.

Fair enough.  So how do you prevent bots? Facebook and other online technologies are nothing but bots and algorithms. How can it determine what is good and what is not?

Apparently, by 2023, Airbus will own 100% of the C-Series program.  Hopefully they keep it in Canada.

This position is just absurd to me.

Hmmm ?

Well, this seems like a good idea to me.  Bombardier  clearly needs help running things...

Your comments seem to indicate you are not serious about the impact rapists have, and how severely they should be treated by law. That's sounds a bit insane to me.

Again, it sounds to me like you are in a completely different thread, on a completely different forum.  Your post makes no sense, just as your last one to me on this thread made no sense.  What you just said there is one way of describing the thoughts of those I am arguing against here, but I know that can't be true.  That's why I'm so surprised.

As for treatment by the law, you can kill them for all I care. (I know, I'm against the death penalty, but only for those that didn't do anything wrong)

That said, you have to catch them first, and for that someone has to know a rape occurred.  Someone other than the victim and the rapist, that is.  Or her trusted friend.

What's crazy is that you and I are most likely very close in age. I am in my late 40s.  , been djing since the late 80s .. and been producing for about a decade.. Once I found electronic music and specifically the Chicago, and Detroit house (leading to Underground and other permutations of house) I was hooked. My pals ridiculed me for a very long time. I said to them, that they would eventually get into it .. I was right :D

Sunburn is the newest project ..   this is my older and still kind of ongoing project  https://soundcloud.com/openheartmachine-ohm

Thanks all for the support!

Wow.  Old DJ.  Did you ever know a guy from Toronto named Dr. Trance ?

How would you go about providing a solution without assessing the damage?

Ban bots completely ?

It's not off topic or lame. You want to talk about Russian interference in the election, without talking about the election?  Really? Come on Mike.

Actually I DON'T WANT TO TALK ABOUT THE ELECTION.  I am talking about ongoing interference as I believe I have already said a few times.

Actually I'm sick and tired of stating just the opposite, and being told how incredibly insane I am.
