who is "us"? because for sure the majority of human beings on this earth aren't living comfortably. that includes first world countries.


you're very wrong and stupid. there's no separating capitalism and corporatism, capitalism took a **** and corporatism was born.



Gez Harpercon, get a grip!! When I said "us" I was referring to us - Canada but you could also include (if you so wish) other countries with similar systems.


Are Iran, Iraq, Sudan, Somalia, Nigeria et al - are they capitalistic countries? I think NOT!! Would you prefer to live there as opposed to here? Look where their system(s) of government got them. What about the Soviet Union before it collapsed. Hopw did that work out?


Don't be so silly in your posts and read what is written and think before you comment because your post was just as disgusting as you said mine was.

Eventually, you run out of taxpayers.... The socialist system kinda breaks down at that point

You'd be wrong as far as Somalia and Nigeria are concerned. They're so capitalist that the so-called First World looks downright communist by comparison.

Capitalism isn't a system of government. It's an economic system.

Canada is protectionist in food trade too. That's one reason the poor must pay high food prices.

50 years ago the biggest employer was G.M. where workers made the equivalent of $50/hr. Today's biggest employer Walmart pays $8/hr.


wwwyoutubecomwatchvG5PFyopOnhIampt1m45s




Hillary Clinton is a former Walmart executive who oversaw the company crippling union organization. This isn’t a coincidence. In Hillary Clinton’s memoir, she romanticized about her first date with Bill Clinton, where the two broke a picket line together. Pretending a union busting scab is somehow a warrior for the working class is ignorant at very best, insulting at worst. It makes you look grossly uninformed, or simply unwilling to listen.

That's about what I figured, a wee bit lower than ours when you factor in exchange rates.

The article states it's from 2014 but that doesn't diminish the Clinton's heritage role......

Boeing has taken classic labor-busting tactics to unusual extremes


The IAM says Boeing has been pressing its case aggressively in the workplace as well, including through mandatory meetings, casual conversations on the shop floor, TV screens placed in break rooms, free anti-union T-shirts, and a giant stack of food, diapers, and clothing labeled as all the things employees could buy for the same cost as annual union dues. A postcard titled “The Truth About IAM Wage Claims,” one of several the IAM says have been distributed by management at morning meetings, urges employees to “Just say NO to the IAM” and features an image of Pinocchio.

On Monday, Boeing Commercial Airplanes CEO and president Kevin McAllister joined Boeing South Carolina general manager Joan Robinson-Berry for group meetings with employees, at which a Boeing spokesperson said they discussed "the importance of their decision" about unionization. Workers say the executives suggested unionization would mean giving away all of their rights to the union and could ruin the plant’s competitiveness.

"They were threatening us basically" through "innuendo," said employee Don Winckles. "They take the worst possible scenario and throw it out there, and a lot of people buy it, even though those people don’t like the way things are now."

The machinists union says Boeing has taken classic labor-busting tactics (external - login to view) to unusual extremes. “It’s on steroids right now,” said Mike Evans, the lead organizer on the campaign. Along with stoking fears about dues and strikes, Evans said, managers have suggested to employees that if they unionized they could stop getting bonuses and their jobs could be moved to China.

The problem is when blaming one side or the other is you have to label them.
We call them capitalists or socialist or communists or fascists and the list goes
on. The fact of the evil people don't wear labels and none speak for the masses
of socialist or capitalists they speak for their own greed. Yes there are greedy
socialists as there are greedy capitalists.
The fact is most of the people that fall into the two main groups capitalist and the
socialist are really Narcissistic Sociopaths hiding behind the mask of a label.
The other startling truth we ignore is capitalism feeds the thirst for jobs progress
and innovation. The socialist aspects of a society ensure the need for ethics,
mental and physical of the society. A civilization is judged on how well we treat the
most vulnerable. With aspects of each other socialism and capitalism gain ultimate
control and destroy themselves in their own corruption

Air Canada invites passengers to make cash offer to sit in better class


Bids are made online using a sliding scale with a set minimum and maximum amount. When passengers pick their price, a chart lets them know the strength of their offer.

Travellers find out if they have the winning bid about 48 hours before departure.

Ottawa-based travel blogger Anshul Singh recently bid to upgrade his Air Canada flight from Toronto to Dubai.

He was booked in premium economy and made an offer for a seat in business class, for the extra perks: "Lie-flat bed so I can sleep, the biggest thing. Food is way better, alcohol, champagne," said Singh.

He had paid $718 for his flight. The business class ticket was $2,248 — a difference of $1,530. Singh was allowed to bid between $400 and $900 for the upgrade.

He offered $500. The Air Canada system warned him it was a low bid.

Even though he knew it was a long shot, Singh still felt let down when he learned his offer had been rejected. "I was a little disappointed that $500 didn't cut it."

Singh recommends people do their research before making an offer. That's because there's no indication on the bid site of the actual cost of the class you want to upgrade to.

In countries like Canada, the Boomers are the ones paying a ton of money in taxes. Once they are gone, so are their tax dollars.

Yes, I fully embrace it. There will be 5 house for every canadians after boomers are dead. It will be great

And we can bring in lots of muslims to fill in the gap. And women will be told to shut the fuk up again. It will be grand

Boomers kicking the bucket is definitly a great step in the right direction

They have been dead weight for 30 years already.

Its how trickle down economy works. Other generations have been waiting for boomers to die to have the opportunity to have kids of their own.

Its why we need to fill in The gap with Muslims who populate much faster.

The Boomers have (or are currently) moving into retirement homes. That said, their homes are being (or have been) snapped-up already by the market.

... Except for the billions they pay in taxes... Things like paying school taxes with no kids in the system

There is a large population that can't afford kids right now. Subtract the Boomer tax dollars and that cost to the individual rises significantly

A truly incoherent and unsupported post. Why don't you print it out and paste it on your fridge where you can read it when you are a senior?

The real question is how many thousands of people will no longer buy KFC because of the price increase? A $15/hr job aint worth squat when it is gone.

I'd prefer a happy medium. I think the C.E.O. could survive fairly well on a wage of say $100 an hour.

You're right, dammit! We should fire all those minimum wage workers! KFC doesn't need them, it has a top-notch CEO!
