Re: Canada to Admit 1 Million Immigrants ...

Also, Canada doesn't have a big drug problem and a border with Mexico where MS-13 members flood across the border, setting up drug gangs, having battles with rivals, fighting for turf in US cities and drug routes.

Re: Gore on Daily Show

Simple: carbon tax

The moment you use the word "tax" you lose. Nobody hears anything you say after that. You lose 100% of the Reds, 75% of the independents, and 35% of the Blues.

Re: Gore on Daily Show

That's the problem. If you raise voters' energy costs by $500 per year (to pick a number at random), they will get upset with you - especially if they don't have an extra $500 per year in their budget to float that cost. [more]

Re: Gore on Daily Show

So I think Gore is completely, and dangerously, wrong in ascribing this to U.S. recalcitrance alone. He's misdiagnosing the problem. A change in the attitude of the U.S. federal government isn't going to fix things. The real problem is [more]

Re: small claims against builder

Limits in small claims courts are generally between $5000 and $10000, so I don’t see how you are better off doing that. You have $20,000 in your generator alone. (Many states also limit how often you can bring a claim, twice a year is common, so no, [more]
