FYI Vancouver...that's in Canada Art, at UBC .... that's the University of British Columbia....in social world mecca....just came up with about three cutting edge possible cures for MS, some cancer malignancies and AIDS.....and we didn't even need to us the USA style system.....it's funded research from both Govt and the private sector!
Besides the fact that the 'main religion' in the USA is money.....Tiger Woods NEEDS $500M/yr??.....present company excepted Art, the 'God' thing is becoming a laughable farce .....
Canada ain't no utopia of how to do things and this place is a perfect representation of the straight up decent hard working ethical Muricans and Canadians but the 'system' is F###ed.....
And Art if you start defending ANYONE that signs/builds/secures a contract for ANYTHING for $100M/yr......then you my friend are defending Sodom and Gomorra !!!!
Swaggert, Oral Roberts, Jim Bakker.......How's that religion working out.....bout as good as every other wack F### religion..........it's greed with a 'religious wrapper'..!!
Hey Art.....when was the last time you were in Canada....or any other country for that matter.....?"The quality you deserve is not expensive---it's priceless"

Doug, I can tell you are in a foul mood, but you are as wrong as wrong can be. I've been in seven countries in the last 8 years, including Canada. When someone starts to think that they can place a limit on the compensation of another human being, they are headed down the road to become a willing slave to their government. But, good morning anyway, Bret and everyone!

As long as you and other's think that way, IMHO, we'll be in the financial/moral/logistical hellhole we're in. I never said it was up to ME to limit the $100M compensation for a basketball, baseball, CEO ....it's a mindset, obviously mirrored and defended by you, that has gotten us all in to this Freddie Mac/Fannie Mae/Wallstreet gimme, gimme f--- everybody else etc....
Ironic thing is Art....YOU ARE a slave to your government...which is controlled 99% by oil and pharmaceuticals.....!!!! By anyone with any degree of intelligence.....the Russian system 'your parents warned you about' is more democratic than what WE have now!!!!!!
You win AGAIN ART....you're the man....just keep doing what your doing down there....it's working great for ya'all.......except your p!ss poor hockey teams...."The quality you deserve is not expensive---it's priceless"

Anyone who says "the Russian system 'your parents warned you about' is more democratic than what WE have now!!!!!!" has a great need to study history. And, if you believe you have sufficient insight and wisdom to determine when someone has made enough money for themselves, their children, and their heirs, then you are in the wrong line of work. I recommend becoming an Oracle.
I can debate these issues without making personal attacks, and I can keep to the facts. I see that you don't have a desire for either. Sad, too, because you are an intelligent man, if politically misguided.....
So, Frankieeeee. Still taking it easy? This was my first day with under 11 hours!

Now I am not an expert on Canada, Doug, but I'm sure those weren't the values that Canada was founded upon. I am certain that those were not the values that America was founded upon.
Because "we are endowed by our Creator with certain unalienable rights," we are ALL winners.
When we give up those rights willingly, we are ALL LOSERS.

Canada was founded on the principle that there needs to be something done about the massive amounts of mosquitoes flying around.Get money, get paid.

It's OK Ray.....Art's flying off the other extreme in the pendulum swing in his middle age since he was flying off the left end in his dumb a$$ youth. When he hits 'bout 88 he'll learn what balance is in the middle....maybe along with the rest of NA...??"The quality you deserve is not expensive---it's priceless"

I am in the middle, Doug. I realized that the media, which according to standards of journalism is supposed to be a presenter of facts rather than a supporter of ideologies, had been misleading myself and millions of other Americans. Fortunately, a new media has risen to take the place of CBS, NBC, ABC, and CNN, since all these outlets have abdicated journalism in favor of activism.
We were founded as a representative republic, based on our Constitution. When we can return to that model, where the government responds to the will of the People, and not their own self-aggrandizement, then we will be on a road to recovery. There is nothing "extreme" about that model, except to say that it has almost become extinct, and that is extremely dangerous for freedom and liberty.
