After spending a million dollars a day for years in the Vancouver DownTown Eastside, things are as bad or worse than ever. For the reason why, you don't have to look any further than the Portland Hotel Society Scandal, where Limousines, lavish travel expenses & political agendas were clearly more important than taking care of the homeless.

The competition between those who think the money belongs first to those who earn it, and those who think that Big Government has both the right and obligation to confiscate income earned is at present, with Government becoming more desperate for money, being won by Big Government advocates.

Rational Conversations versus Violent Confrontations

Our increasing culture of intolerance and disrespect is at the root of increasing social violence. When it comes to issues like minimum wage, Kinder Morgan Pipeline or Global Warming the chances of having polite, rational differences of opinion are remote. With the politicization of virtually every issue, we can't be surprised when things turn nasty and violent.

We are starting to see some research on the impact of a hike in minimum wage on jobs that can be replaced by technology. The conclusions aren't pretty but its not too likely minimum wage advocates are going to change their tune.

The Iron Clad Stupidity of a Soft Drink Tax

Share on Facebook Tweet on Twitter

on Wednesday, 16 August 2017 08:03

A 1 1/2 cent per ounce tax on soft drinks promising to fund pre-kindergarten programs with the proceeds led to some very predictable outcomes. First, sales of soft drinks plunged, the revenue projected from the tax is down, big layoffs in soft drink producers and deliverers occurred, beer consumption rose and less than half the money raised went to pre-kindergarten programs!

The Foreign Affairs Minister is demanding that the US Government and Donald Trump incorporate into the NAFTA agreement "efforts to address climate change". They are also demanding a chapter on "gender rights" as well as another chapter on "indigenous rights".
