The Daily Show - Alexandria Ocasio Cortez shocks the nation

Comment: 84 days ago

She's smart, educated, Latino and a socialist. My only wish is that someone in Canada starts another political party  identicle to the Co-operative Commonwealth Federation and has a manifesto identicle to it's 1933 Regina Manifesto.

Should we tax the rich more? 86% Posted Jun 2018

Should we tax the rich more?

Comment: 91 days ago

Should we? In Canada 001% of Canada's adult working population earned and owned 70% of the wealth and profits. Did we? Yes...in 1949 the Canadian Federal Rate of Corporate Taxation was 49% ..over....$250,000.00 a year in profit. Well what's happened since then? In 1987 Canadian journalist and author Linda McQuaig wrote," Behinf Closed Doors - How The Rich Won Control of Canada's Tax System...And Ended Up Richer" Viking Press. http://www.umanitoba.ca/cm/cmarchive/vol16no4/revbehindcloseddoors.html Is it ethical and moral to have equitable taxation? The Journal of Business Ethics thinks so. https://www.jstor.org/stable/25071816?seq=1#page_scan_tab_contents  So what is the present Federal Rate of Corporate Taxation here in Canada  ...15%

Guest....and that's wrong. Communications is the key. Allot less students per class room is a constructive start to provide the time neccesary to engage in healthy communication and encourage healthy learning.

Ulstein X-Bow, revolutionary ship design

Comment: 107 days ago

Great Lakes vessels (North America) such as,"self unloaders"....is there a need for an adaptation of this front end design change? Hmm....If my memory serves me right,  the maximum length is 520 ft and maximum cargo capacity is 25,000 tons. Draft is 24 feet for our St. Lawerance Seaway System "below" Sault St. Marie. Maybe Port Weller Dry Docks could start looking at designing something like this "X-Bow" for the Great lakes.

If the dog was,"really smart" he'd drag his intoxicated owner to a Men's Detoxification Unit and encourage him(dog's owner) to stay and then lie down and and then roll over.... for 5-7 days.

Toyota manufacturing practice.... one shift maintenance and two shifts production then.....repeat. It's worked since 1965. I wish General Motors did the same.

Guest...I agree with your statement....I don't think it's right that the founders and owners of a company should give up control to their employees.  

I do think working people can and should control the means of procuction ....collectively.

In 2004 I read a book entitled," PARECON - Participatory Economics"  by Michael Albert  - VERSO Publishing.  There is a better way.

In my humble opinion, we need more people like Vladimir on this planet. He appears to care about the people of his country. He prefers socialism to Capitalism as most of the population on the planet does as well.  He's a credit to himself and a fine example to others.

I used like  peanut butter and strawbeery jam sand wiches...maybe two of them. In reality, When I smoked dope, I was a menace on my bike, and then my motorcycle and then in my vehicle. I missed out on an a possible professional hockey carreer, an education at a private boys school here in St. Catharines and post-secondary education.  I have no idea why people want to legalize smoking dope.
