  1. That is my main point. Americans would have to fork over a lot more in taxes to have our system. ..and our system needs fixing, desperately.
  2. That would be 5.5% of your entire life earnings. For the average bloke, that buys a lot of medical attention. Americans need to budget for the inevitable. Did you know Canada has the lowest personal income tax of the G7. 29% as opposed to 39% in the US. Too bad the province takes another 20.3 making Canada's income tax the highest by 4%. Restaurant prices in Canada are $77 on average compared to $67 in the US. Groceries in Canada were 29% higher in Canada than the US in 2017.
  3. No, it was genius. You're just not thinking it through.
  4. I guess I need to turn on the TV.
  5. What if our taxes kept you out of housing? Would you be good with that? That is what is happening here. People are having to decide between rent or prescription drugs. 200% is very real on some import duties.

    I am sad

    There is no reason to break the laws that justify laws being broken. Not the cops, not the rioters.

    I like Nebraska. People are friendly and polite there.
  11. What is the matter with JC Penny?
  12. Is there a grape pie stand 6.5 miles away? You should party like it is 99,999!

    Wait, you found this in the pet food section didn't you? Are milk bone crumbs next?

    Too late!
  15. I know it is easy to poke fun at the situation but with employees not showing to work and others down sick, there was no choice. There are cases of 200 patients to each employee and people lying for days in their feces and urine soaked beds. People being left to die. I find it absolutely third world and totally unacceptable.
  16. Yeah, they aren't really mutually exclusive.. Look at @Zephyr and we let him carry a gun!
  17. Mumu's are less form fitting.
  18. What I am seeing is a nessecetated move back to multi-generational housing. Housing prices alone in any major centre in Canada are driving this. Yes, we are living longer but that doesn't render a person, less valuable as a person. I feel for your Mom. Eventually, you should move out of the poor lady's basement.
  19. People that call our healthcare "free" have been intellectually marginalized. We pay taxes on taxes in Canada and on everything you do and purchase, even re-purchase. This is why a $15 bottle of vodka in the US becomes $45 in Canada whose dollar trades at a 30% discount. Same for auto pricing. Same for clothing. We pay very dearly for "free" healthcare. So, take your pay, reduce it by 48% for income tax, then reduce it by 15-30% again for dollar differential, then 15% for sales taxes on goods that are increased by 20-200% in manufacturing taxes or import duties and you will have the purchasing power of a Canadian. Free healthcare... lol
  20. A mumu. Consider it an investment in your future.
  21. The closer I get to being a senior, the more relevant it becomes of course but when I look at the poor medical my Dad received in his last months and the poor care my mother is receiving, the more it becomes obvious as to the shortfalls of societies treatment of aging. They are no less a people and no less deserving of care. I find it disheartening. Maybe this will become my new cause.
