He got semi-shut down by another guy saying, "We're just going to re-set it back to what it was three months ago".
The guy who stumped the wimp forgot to say: "Remember how back in the old days Canadian's used to whine about not having the industry to process all their own resources, such that all we were doing is sell it all off?"
Had the wimp heard that, he would have said, "So?"
The answer is, as it is now, "Because we do not do manufacturing here, and because we only supply resources, it means the companies setting up here from China are only doing so for the resources, after which extraction they are going to run away, so...
Do you really think *anything* in the way of corporate taxes are going to choke them when they want the resources, unless you make the taxes so high they figure it's cheaper to fight for them?
Picture it a corporation saying: "I do not like your taxes, so I am going to dig tar-sands somewhere else".
Picture it further: "If you guys want to live so good go dig and sell the resources for yourself, but you will not work without a regular payed job (for being payed off to sell your resources)". Okay, haul the tar sands to another jurisdiction.
Hmm... the issue is not about global trade nor foreign investment nor anything... evidently the issue is about how Canadians hate and do not trust each other the way people in other countries do as a normal part of a day. I've been dealing with the states long enough to suspect.
So let's see... hmm... what corporate tax can a resource supplier charge versus the cost to others wanting those resources invading for it?
I betcha it's more than what the Wall-street gargoyles would ideally like to see you charge against their shareholder benefits.
I mean, look at the Wall-street gargoyles. They demolish American industry exporting manufacturing to China. Then they make as much profit possible by making Canadian resources cheap to China.
They end up feeling like they own everything, without noticing that China already knows it does not have to do the WTO rules if it is strong enough, such that we have CDNBear et al preparing for a wall to be put up around China... thus the call for Canada to pitch in a huge bunch of F-35s as part of a world-order force.
You f-cks dont' know how to make trade agreements with China. You should have seen how embarrassed it was to mediate a deal between the US and Japan, but now it's China, and f-ckhole Harper is allowing the rich resources of true north be torn between the US and China while only 30 million people inbetween being torn down.
I keep telling you guys there is a way to moderate and mediate this, but the f-ckhole MBAs from Harvard are just as programmed by the time they are done as are their taskmasters from hell. I know this because I worked with Harvard MBAs as a matter of exhaustive orientation where I was the one hired to teach.
Did you notice how if north America were to get all its former-factory workers back to growing food - the more healthy and organic the better - to feed China, and if China were to be left alone to live its dream of colonizing the moon, that they are hard enough to tolerate being gassed and frozen when their cheep technology breaks such that their civilization will not break down with torments of mass media tears if their guys die on a space venture...
Did you notice how north America has built up enough arms and nuclear deterrent to protect the world's food supply, and that some serious deals can be made if someone doesn't want to starve to death?
You think those factory workers from Hamilton wouldn't grow food as a dumb job if they were paid to show up for a crop?
The only enemy in a situation like this is Monsanto, and this is where Canadians love having a border.
Plus you f-cks never noticed that the dominant byproduct of Candu reactors was Plutonium, from which, according to the last census done in 1966 afterwhic it got clamped down secret, Canada had stored up enough Plutonium to build 1500 Hiroshima sized bombs and oh my goodness it's all based upon the delivery systems and oh my goodness the Avro Arrow gets shut down and I keep telling you guys I am the one trying to lead the Americans forward.
I am not following Americans... I am showing them how to be north American.
They are charged with the feeling of being the world's biggest tough guys like playground bullies do that.
That's how they tolerate not being the best civilization in the world anymore.
Geezuz Christ... I just heard a hate ad against Liberals... and I thought I was hearing a hate ad against Harper. Turns out it was Harper.
I'm am sharing a nation with idiots.
Whereupon screw you, I am educating natives.
Blast you if you didn't notice they have the same percentage of population as black in the US.
