Not much to say about the article. A lot of republican talking points, such as union bashing and anti-environmental policies. Some nonsense about how the US has the highest corporate tax rate in the world, which is, of course, complete bullshit. More lies about Obama's budget getting rejected by every member of congress.

What exactly does Obama not want us to know about Canada? Be specific.

Don't be silly, nothing in Forbes is worth reading in the first place. It about a half step above Investors Business Daily, which itself is two steps below Fox News.

While I generally support reducing the Federal Government, I don't see any relevance in this article to the U.S.

Let's face it, America and Canada are two very different beast.

Pink, if you think Canada is doing such a great job, maybe you should consider living there.

Not really. I would rather ignore something than blindly repeat it. Besides, I don't even know what topic I'm ignoring. I read the article and I'm not even sure what the guy is talking about. Apparently, he's using Canada as evidence that republican ideas work. If I want to read bullshit I'll go to the Onion. At least they are entertaining.

Wonderful. I could perhaps vote Republican again if they truly intend to implement a single-payer healthcare system and impose meaningful regulation on our banking system. Banking regulation in Canada is basically the only reason their housing market is in such good shape compared to ours.

Those who think that Obama did this to the economy, or could have "fixed it" already are stupid about the economy.

Tongue Pthhht Tongue

I think it's foolish to compare the U.S. as a country to Canada as a country. You can generalize about a lot of things, but a cross-dimensional white-wash like this is specious (look it up).

If you look at the factors that define our economy, you're looking at business and management, trade and trades, social value, and the size of our country.

But our government, and especially our PM, lack the ability or skill to control those sectors. Just the window-dressing, like duties and subsidies.

Our PM Harper especially lacks any insights into how people work, and he doesn't care. Plus, being an elected dictator, his government is not in any position to foster a prosperous nation. They cannot lead, or innovate. There is no vision for the future of the country. They can only ride on the coat-tails of the economy.

Maybe that's what Obama doesn't want Americans to know? Or maybe he thinks our government's incompetence is so outlandish that he can't even recognize it?

That video is a South Park character leading a song. But the sound is pretty fuzzy so I couldn't understand any of the lyrics.

I guess what's showing in my post is my dis-enchantment with Canada's government system, which is an elected dictatorship staffed by incompetents, as well as my fear about how our elite (the CEO's and owners of our biggest corporations) have the ability to sell our assets to the lowest bidder.

In other words, Canada has the best and most in natural resources, in nature itself. We are world leaders in science and engineering, innovation and quality products. But the folks in power like to give it away, sell it, or cancel it.

OK I'm generalizing here. But the OP's quote generalizes even worse. Plus it generalizes about two countries in one broad swipe. Worse, it puts the words in your President's mouth.

Yikes! Pirate Quick I need another pot of coffee this morning.

Tongue Pthhht Mad Don't call me what your mother raised. Tongue

No, a "principle" is a belief or method, laid down by anybody who wants to, and adhered to by anybody who benefits.

Well now, is "collapse" the main principle of the trouble in Greece? Maybe the trouble was caused by the government's own monetary and economic principles. I think the Greek people are mad because the Greek and European governments want the people themselves to pay for the government's past reckless abuses. Now the government is mad because the people don't want to support their lost entitlement.

So there, Mr. Dick 0.3 ! Tongue
