riddler78 saidIt is bizarre how tremendously out of touch some of these guys are - even while social policies are increasingly unaffordable their solution seems to be tax the rich, and come out with another program to solve society's ills.
And it's miraculous how tremendously in-touch someone in Toronto, Canada can be about Oakland, California. Perhaps your concern about "society's ills" could be better focused on your own home country.
And isn't the combined Federal and Provincial tax rates on Canada's wealthy higher than in the US, with fewer exemptions? I think you have a bigger problem sitting right under your own nose that you better attend to immediately, rather than selflessly ignoring it to help us out down here first.
BTW, do you enjoy medical care up there in Canada, that you would like to see denied to those of us in the States? Isn't that a bit uncharitable on your part, if not downright hypocritical?
Well, anyway, perhaps someday you'll find time to tell us about Canada where you live, as passionately as you tell us about the US, where you don't live, and what you would do to improve your own country, rather than how to improve ours. Just a thought...
