Just by imposing a flat fee of $5 per month per cellular phone in Canada would bring in over a hundred million a month.
Hardly anybody would notice the difference in their monthly phone bill (except the whining poverty activists) and there'd be more money than anyone could handle for a wide range of projects. Bridges , tunnels, freeways you name it!
Only problem is that telecommunications revenue is a Federal piggy bank and the Feds aren't famous for doling the money out fairly once they've collected it
rich folks get a lot of crap in this city, as they should, given how the economy is and all. but as one of the poor residents of this city I can tell you it's not just them. there's a horrible crab mentality among the poorer folks. that's why anyone with a lick of talent and sense leaves Vancouver.
Yes, I'm in pain and I don't agree with any of it and I'm torn up over how it was done. But I want my ex to know that I love them and I want them to be well and happy. And I also want them to know that I don't much care about being with anyone else right now (nor for the foreseeable future); I'm working on myself properly for the first time in my life. I have an inkling that they think I'm focused on replacing them, and that couldn't be further from the truth. Anyway - it's too bad that we can't/shouldn't talk. I can't because of the pain, but it also hurts to think that I might live my life and die without ever speaking to them again. I sort of wish we could just read each other's minds and give each other a mental hug or something. But even that would hurt me.
...are people who promise the world and then run away when things get hard and then blame the other person.
Why are most of you sensitive people so scared to open/shut windows on the bus??? I just opened 2 and people behind me followed and opened 4 more. Why can’t you just open or shut them on your own? Why can’t you think of that yourself? And then put it into action. So many times I’ve neen on hot stuffy transit and NOT ONE person opens a window. I have to instruct someone to do it if I can’t. What is wrong with you people??
At Rideau Hall. Good hour of non stop objects translucent metallic blent into the sky only their outer circle visible. I grew tired of watching. Where was my cellphone when I needed it!?
People don't change.
They are who they are.
They only thing that changes is their ability to hide it for a short period of time.
My ex gf told me that she isn’t happy. Fit, successful, healthy, beautiful, but not happy because she’s 34 and her life isn’t what she imagined it would be. She wants to have a family and she says it doesn’t look like it will happen soon though she’s been with her boyfriend for a few years. She calls me up when they’re having issues because “I’ve always felt like home”. I listen and support while holding my tongue from saying “I want that family with you”. That’s how it’s been the last 3 years while I’ve been single, hoping she will be single again too. Why do I love this woman so much when she isn’t choosing me? Maybe I made my bed when I let her go. It just wasn’t the right time. I want to tell her to be with me and she will be happy... but I don’t know if she sees it.
Is something that I've possessed without knowing it. Twice in my life women who I thought I would marry left me, I've been fired, screwed around, so broke I went to the food bank, lied to, and once had the city condemn my place and forced me out.
In some of these situations I didn't have any control and some I did. In any case I found myself suddenly having to rearrange my life or figure things out on the fly. I never thought anything of it until I saw people going to pieces when bad things happen to them. I didn't think I was that strong mentally; but considering I'm doing ok and have made it through the bad things life gives me, I must be stronger than I thought.
Ya I left and you're pissed at me. But it was you who kept making decisions regarding our relationship without telling me. If you're going to change the rules as we go, don't get mad at me for saying enough is enough.
It doesn't matter what she did, how badly she treated me, or how much she took advantage of my kindness. Another guy will be there in a second to help her get over me. He'll think she's the greatest thing since sliced bread and listen to her whine about all the unfair treatment she's gotten.
I'm old enough to know that this is just the way it is. Sure it's unfair that someone can act like an ass and get away with it. But I'm wiser now and will find a woman to appreciate me and help me forget about you.
Q: What does a bowling ball look like after it morphs into a beanbag?
I’ve been having some issues feeling close to women. I decided to be completely honest and truthful with the women around me. I thought with all of the societal progress people have been trying to make that I could really say how I felt. Big mistake. Looks like I’m going back to strong and silent again.
Why do women wear these? You need to glue shit onto your face to feel acceptable? You can’t leave the house without your face wigs?? I look over beside me in the lineup and a woman has these 1” long falsies. It looks phony, it’s beyond obvious and it’s some adherence (pun intended) to a look that I just don’t get. Seriously, go natural and lose the glue. You will look so much better, and will be free of this artificial garbage.
People sit around the table , the Japanese , the Canadians , the Chinese, the Americans, the Euros, the British.
They hammer out deals amongst themselves through hard negotiations , sign the papers and walk away with the best they can get.
Then come the lawyers who rip the papers apart to find every loophole possible to skirt the initial foundation of the deal. They'll find a way to say Bombardier is not Canadian just as easily as they can find a way to say that Mcdonalds is Scottish.
Is a duck still a duck if it's feet are chopped off? Is a car still a car if it's brought in in pieces.
Is milk still milk if it's broken down into its components .
Who collects the taxes if the server is in the Cayman Islands?
What is untreated timber? I could go on, but there's not enough room.
Gradually the exploitation of these loopholes decimates the intent of the original agreement, and what was considered fair at the outset becomes a sinkhole for one side or the other.
I hate to paraphrase him, but Stalin said that nations can't trust one another to do the right thing , deals have to be looked at all the time and reset if necessary... because Governments change!
That time for a reset has come for NAFTA , the WTO and other major trade agreements.
Trump is taking the proper stance in my view!
