  1. In a thread about white racist cops shooting black men and how race is a prime motivator it is interesting to note the police officer in the Castile shooting was not white therefore removing the racist component. However it is reported Castile was pulled over for investigation as he was thought to resemble someone wanted for armed robbery. Being that the suspect and Castile are both black this is apparently a police issue as Castile is being racially profiled. https://theconservativetreehouse.com/2016/07/08/confirmed-philando-castile-was-an-armed-robbery-suspect-false-media-narrative-now-d
  2. Another antiquated idea is having the possibility of consequences after being caught performing an illegal act.
  3. Dont know how far you want to look msj for an article that you do not consider a conspiracy based source. While i find zero-hedge pessimistic i do find over the years that there are many articles there that are based on fact and reality. Whether or not we choose to accept them as such does not make the article conspiracy or non-conspiracy based. Here is another one that you can pre-determine whether it is a conspiracy based website. http://internationalbanker.com/banking/banking-rebuilding-system-bail-policy/ Of note in the above link is the fact that we have not heard much discussion
  4. Scribblet, perhaps not a great link but some info to consider. https://pressfortruth.ca/top-stories/what-bail-means-why-you-shouldnt-hold-your-money-big-five-banks/ I do beleive a depositor in excess of $100,000 will be part of the bail in. I do not see it being any other way. Why else would one write legislation that would otherwise essentially say the banks owners are responsible for the bank. Perhaps in this messed up banking world it is otherwise possible for the owners to walk away. My guess is that bank owners will have away around the bail-in laws anyway, if your asset is a ban
  5. Good to know that in less than six years the GFC is already considered no big deal. It will make things much easier if Canadas economy really tanks in the next few years as it seems such an occurrence will essentially be a non-event when put in histotical context and we can be confident the Liberals wont go to the trough of tax payer money to inject it into the econony in such an event. Frankly i dont beleive this but certainly am left with this impression based on reading here so i can have some degree of optimism that there is no chance the deficit will increase beyond projections no matter
  6. Agree with a lot of what you said dre about the budget discussion regarding partisan attacks and a meaningful discussion. I do get very tired of talk about debt/gdp ratio and more spending is ok, Keynesian Economics, the entire world is doing it etc. I dont care what the world is doing, what i care about is wasting $25B for nothing, and that the next government in power will add more to the deficit, and why not? Debt/gdp ratio is an arbitrary target number easily changed. So what if $25B becomes $50B in interest as it will be someone elses bill to deal with the next decade. I think p
  7. I didnt delve into anything beyond this article but does not sound like anything as changed. As i understand it, laws were changed in the last few years in US and Canada to enact the bail in policy. In Canada we are insured of our savings up to $100,000 if a bank fails. Anything over that is taken by the bank and converted to shares, if the bank survives then you have a share with some value, if the bank still fails then you have nothing. Banks love to borrow money that have no backing of so this is a concern. Particularly for US residents as there are many smaller banks making riski
  8. Regarding charger connectors, they are common place. 250A at 4160v 3 phase in a plug about 6" diameter and connected with multistrand conductor (look up "5/15kv jumper cable" if interested) is used everywhere in mines. A potash mine will have thousands of connectors in the 600v to 4160v range. Here is one manufacturer http://www.smsconnectors.com/high_voltage.htm I dont think 5 minute charging is practical. One hour would be fine and you need to adapt your schedule/lifestyle accordingly. If it is a road side stop then grab a coffee. The idea of these electric cars are that you are
  9. Series hybrid is the answer, i came across a bmw unit a few months ago that looked like the right idea. An electric motor drives the vehicle via the battery pack for a range of 160 km. A generator charges the battery when needed to extend range and can therefore be used to provide heating that would otherwise shorten your range in the winter. To go a step further one would need a storage battery at home you can charge with solar panels when at work during daytime so that at night you can plug your vehicle into this stored energy to charge your car. Electric cars dont help matters much if
  10. Thanks Bonam, had no idea what rates were like south of the border. Though it looks like i would be buying quite a bit at your 12.9 c/kwh rate as in winter i have quite a bit of my bill over 16 kwh/day, probably another 200 kwh/day at the higher rate. Electric boiler and winter heating drives that.
  11. Whats a typical total kwh cost for people on here? Lots of talk on TOU and not factoring in delivery charges and such. Got my quarterly power bill and i am at 14.2 cents per kwh all in. Took the total paid (including taxes) to settle the bill and divide by kwh used during the billing period.
  12. What part of spending in relation to revenues requires explaination? You take in $1000 and have $1500 of tasks you want to invest in so you decide which of those get $1000 and drop the others. And better yet, when debt is 66% of gdp you go so far as to spend $900 and put $100 toward debt. Does one explain further that as you borrow to spend money now because you dont want to cut then you have no rational reason to ever stop using that ideology. This is correct yes? Borrow and spend when times are good, borrow and spend when times are mediocre, borrow and spend when times are bad - this
  13. The media needs to get that memo and stop using the term 'stimulus'. Because dropping that term is correct, and by doing so it simply becomes an issue of the government prioritizing its spending. Since stimulus is not required then 'infrastructure deficit' spending is balanced by cutting spending in other areas. No need to run deficits for a problem that does not exist. Now if the government is simply going to borrow and spend money because it does not want to cut anywhere then say it as such and quit using the term 'stimulus'.
  14. Lucky thing inflation rate dropped to 1.4% in Feb, down from 1.9% in Jan and stopping the rising trend. Bank of Canada targets 2% rate so things like high gas or lower $Can dollar would push inflation higher and BofC would be looking to boost interest rates to cool the economy to lower inflation while the government is running deficits to boost the economy. Looks like in todays world inflation rate is no longer an indicator of need for government stimulus.
  15. In Sask i am 12.6 cents/kwh for residential with a $29.19 basic monthly charge. No delivery charges or time of use or other such rates. Industrial customers are slightly less but are charged around $14/kva each month their peak demand is over 50 kva so this is comparable to a delivery charge.
