Re: Canada goes to pot?

Whilst in BC just a matter of months ago I saw shops that openly sold, even advertised, medicinal cannabis. Was I looking at the thin edge of the wedge? Actually the wedge was pretty thick by then. The Victoria Cannabis Buyers Club is a compassion club that has been in operation since January 1996....

Re: Dick's CEO: "The Retail Industry Is In Panic Mode"

Could this be the beginning of the Star Trek universe? 3D printers aren't anywhere close to Star Trek's replicators, but you're right that as technology advances, Adjusting for inflation, I can buy a new Chevy Cruze (subcompact) for the same price for which a Yugo sold in 1986, but the safety impro...

Oh Cannabis!

Pot is officially legal in Canada today! Of course the devil details will go on for years. Regulations involving the sale and distribution will fall to our provinces and territories, as will coping with impaired driving etc. Still, I expect our economy and justice system will benefit immensely. htt...

Re: Dick's CEO: "The Retail Industry Is In Panic Mode"

With less military spending, maybe there would be money to revive the economy... But I guess performing genocide in North Korea or bombing civilians in Syria is the right way to fuflfill "America First!..." Why do you guys in the US put up with this? Wouldn't it be time to put the right to bear arm...

Re: Great Depression’ ahead?

The biggest threat to the world economy is government debt. The US, EU, and Japan are highly in debt. How did this happen? Government debt is only problematic if it is placed abroad. True to some extent. They can always print more money. But you will get inflation. Or you can make the payments and ...
