“Ben and Jerry sold their company to Unilever in 2000 and no longer have any involvement with the operation AFAIK. Why do you mention them in the article?”

“" Is it not good to teach kids to work for what you get?"

No, not a bad idea at all. I think every child who didn't earn his lunch should maybe do a little work. That would be all of them.

Do you agree, or do you think poor kids should be singled out because their parents are poor?”

Linda Ebbert on Dec 20, 2013 at 14:05:57

“Not singled out because they are poor.. teaching you work for a living. It is not good to be poor.. But it is also not good to keep giving to those who could make a difference. All it takes is pride and when you work for something you get pride. Some of these kids have never even seen a working parent. We here have generations of people who never have had a job. Just welfare.. and how can they even think of the kids crawling out of that hole? Teach responsibility! I am not saying child labor.. but to sweep a floor? My 11 year old grand daughter does that here.. To work on the lunch line? She volunteers at our American Legion doing that! Teach to work.. and to help others and not just stand with hand out! Be a part of the community to help. If the parent does not teach it is up to others. Tough love..”

“"That chlorine prevents disintery and cholera."

Yeah, I noticed that. Once the water arrives at your premises however, it's OK to then remove the chlorine. That's what an RO filter system can do, and it's a lot cheaper than bottled water.

Any restaurant that serves drinking water with chlorine in it is probably not looking to expand their business.”

“We need to revamp property law with regard to mineral extraction, taking into account the present "externalization" of making cleanup, and loss of use for future generations, a public liability.

If companies seeking profit from exploiting natural resources want to play, they'll have to pay. It's likely that if all costs, including externalities, are factored in, neither natural gas fracking and/or tight-oil (tar sands and shale oil) extraction would be worth the effort based on EROEI.”

“This is a very interesting idea and I don't think most people have any idea how right you are. Out in Pavillion for example lots of people bought houses and farms with land but probably didn't know the mineral rights to those lands had been sold long ago. Consequently the landowner or farmer had absolutely no say about drilling gas wells on their land. ENCANA would literally move a rig into a farmers field, pay him for whatever crop he planted and drill wells right in the middle of his fields and there was nothing the landowner could do to stop them.”

“The XL pipeline is to terminate in Port Arthur, TX, a tax-free zone. It's very unlikely anything flowing through this pipeline will be taxed to the benefit of the rest of us.”

FlyDiesel on Apr 3, 2013 at 10:44:30

“Most of the output of refineries is consumed domestically; only excess capacity is exported. The dilbit delivered by the pipeline is typically not even be refined in a separate run, but mixed with other sources prior to refining. If your argument is that the output of refineries is untaxed, that is not correct. California adds over $1.00 per gallon in state, federal and local taxes on gasoline alone. That neglects revenue on transportation and storage taxes.”

“" Not only does this bring billions of dollars of revenue to the US,..."

Stop right there. This is your biggest mistake; to presume that money coming from the transport and export of a foreign (Canadian) oil "product" by a handful of US companies somehow benefits any but a small slice of the well-heeled strata, who will just turn around and invest it offshore or hide it in tax havens.

Nice try.”

FlyDiesel on Apr 1, 2013 at 22:38:24

“The one-size-fits-all response that only the 1% benefits by anything that is good for business is destructive to both American business interests and wage earners. The refinement of crude is taxable, as are export finished products and even storage facilities. As well, refineries are large operations with staffs, distribution and supply chains. The sheer quantity of fuels produced in American refineries is beyond comprehension, like trying to visualize a trillion dollars it's very hard to get perspective on. In 2011, gasoline consumption alone-- less than 50% of the petroleum product total-- was over 367 million gallons per day. Yet, domestic refinery profits are very small; this is only possible because of the ability to also refine for higher international markets. We WANT this business as a nation.
