“I am originally from the Continent and here in Burnaby, my colleagues of Indian, Chinese, German and Philippine extraction never heard of him either and that is not willful ignorance. UK ethnocentrism is so 1960'es, don't you think?”

“I'm a Canadian so I wouldn't know of UK Ethnocentrism I just know that not knowing about one of the driving forces of the music coming out of the 80s Manchester movement is willful ignorance. Also, given my colleagues of Japanses, Indian, French, and German desecent know him quite well.”

“B.S. if you're under 60 years old you have no excuse to not know who he is, that's just a willful ignorance or a self rightous "First" style internet comment. I don't agree with him either but at least try and contribute something more than noise to the conversation.”

“I was just about to say that.”

Wildkitty on Feb 27, 2014 at 07:54:39

“You stole my thunder!

Back during the days of the Great Depression 'health care coverage' WAS not-for-profit.

Here are two paragraphs taken from an article in Forbes Magazine (hardly a Left Wing magazine):-

"If you want to know what went wrong with our health care system and the best way to fix it, all you have to do is look back a few decades to a time when health care was a community concern, considered as essential as any public utility. It should be again, not just because it makes sense but also because it’s the most profitable way to go.

The irony in the current debate over a “public option” health plan is that we once had a form of socialized medicine. Blue Cross, the most recognizable name, began in 1929 as a tax-exempt insurer covering a community of teachers in Dallas. Blue Shield was started as a tax-exempt insurer to cover employees of mining and lumber companies in the Pacific Northwest, with a group of local doctors providing care through a service bureau."

And that is the way it should still be. But, of course, 'Capitalism' is worshipped in this country!”

“How about spending 12% or less of GDP instead of the current 18%, like every other OECD country? That would represent a saving of $4,000 per year per person for similar results. By the way, those countries cover everybody and their residents live on average 2 to 4 years longer (google "CIA-World factbook-guide to country comparisons-people and society). That would help.”

“If you subscribe to Netflix in the US, pay for your membership there, travel to the UK and connect your laptop there to a local internet internet provider, Netflix allows you access to the local list of shows and movies and some shows and movies are available in the UK while they are not available in the US and vis versa. Using the services of a vpn gives access to internet providers from different countries without having to travel there. If you do not care about being better informed, then , yeah ...go ahead and accuse others of being thieves.”

“40 guys are in a bar, drinking beer and Warren Buffett joins them. Bingo, on average now everyone in the bar becomes a billionaire, at least for a short while. Comparing median incomes and expenditures instead of average might be more relevant given the differences in distribution of incomes in USA and Canada.”

Maryanne Slater on Dec 30, 2013 at 21:29:03

“Yes. And median household income might be kind of skewed too, because there can be adult offspring living at home, starting to earn a decent income but unable yet to afford a place on their own (car or education loan payments).”
