Re: Should we get rid of Jimtan and TDMA

The ignorance is astounding Should we create a no Jim and TDMA thread, maybe they won't come and waste time posting there.  I'll give Jim credit, his ideas are dumb, but at least he puts thought into his posts and tries to argue things logically...I haven't put him on ignore and probably won't, but...

Re: New affordable housing policies for the young

A lot of other homeless should be in shelters or facilities that can support their addictions and mental disorders, which should be the province.  However, moonbeam makes bold proclamations to end homelessness, knowing full well he can't really end homelessness, its just a big show to get votes...N...

Re: New affordable housing policies for the young

God help us if the NDP wins, Christy is as corrupt as they come, but man the alternative will be far worse!  If only another party could get their act together, or if the NDP would learn from their past mistakes and become a centrist party, rather than trying to go further left, as it stands I sure...

Re: New affordable housing policies for the young

We need strategic solutions, not homilies.  :!: What are Homilies - don't think the forum is going to come up with the strategic solutions though. My thoughts are the city is doing this to prepare for the next election as they know they face a lot of opposition on a lot of fronts.  They helped fuel...

Re: New affordable housing policies for the young

I totally agree with the entitlement issue.  Just because these young people were born and raised here, it doesn't mean they have to be guaranteed a place to live in Vancouver.  Not only a place to live, but they expect to somehow get a place big enough to raise a family and located in the most des...

Re: What do you see out there in March?

You clearly don't understand how trolls work.  For example, you assume that its a "he" (or "she"), as opposed to a machine that will respond to your every post with mindless crap, no matter what it is or when you type it.  Even ignore may not end it, but it is more fruitful than engaging. There is ...

Re: What do you see out there in March?

It would actually help more if you just ignore the troll.  By definition, they will troll anything you post here, including actual facts , to goad you into replying... and then repeat cycle.  Its why they call them "trolls" The troll won't last long if you guys took turns to trash him everyday.

Re: Should the government intervene?

How clever you are. The chart shows total debt as a percentage of GDP. Nothing to do with "assume".

Here's another chart about BC debt in $ amounts.
Jim, you should do like the rest of us and but dumb dumb on Ignore...Its like arguing with a rock.

Re: Vancouver indvidual property sales details

VanLord, please don't - every time you quote him I am forced to see his drivel.  Ignore is your best option.

Re: Vancouver indvidual property sales details

Finally, anyone thats actually READ what a bank offers in Canada knows that you dont have to be 'sick' or 'pass away' or 'be disabled' to get benefits to pay your mortgage.

Re: Vancouver indvidual property sales details

First you want to tell me how much my home is worth, now you want to give me the details on my pension? You're a real hoot pal. as usual, dodging the question.... Its a defined pension plan. In good times it pays me no more than defined, even when it produces higher yield. Likewise, in bad times it...

Re: Vancouver indvidual property sales details

Stock markets are a positive for people who understand why they are investing in. People on this forum have demonstrated a very basic understanding of equites.

My pension is guaranteed regardless if stock market crashes...I really dont trust that there will not be a stampede away from the market one day.
