Oh, and for the record austerity budgets don't work to fix recessions. Never have, never will. It takes money to make money.
Really? Odd how that works, it seems to have done a very good job up here in Canada over and over again. Then again, turning on the printing presses repeatedly is always a great way to devalue your currency and fiscally screw yourselves over the long term.

You don't make money, by bankrupting yourself either.

Maybe they don't see at as a big deal because they just re-elected a president who has promised to reduce it, and laid out a plan on how to do so.
lmao. This is from the same president who said he would cut the deficit from Bush by half in his first term, in his first year by half. Okay there, let me give you a tip. The difference was...Obama's deficit was an increase of 500-600% every year.

If anyone still thought capitalism was good for society... I see this has AT&T, Verizon, et. al. having stolen millions of dollars from their customers for years and now begrudgingly complying with an extremely reasonable request after ignoring it for years. Fuck those assholes.
Protip: Capitalism is good for society. This is a lack of consumer protection laws that americans seem to have a problem with, and laws not protecting consumers.

Yea, no Wii U mentioned. Bummer.
No, I think he was talking about an iPad version.

Wait, now I know. He was referring about the Ooya version. That must be it.

Yaya you guys, its obvious I'm talking about the Virtual Boy version.
You sure? I thought it was for the C64 and Amiga.

Wow. YouTube was acting weird earlier. I assume it is related to Sandy!
Youtube is actually down for me, our ISP's cache(TS1) and direct service to youtube aren't loading at all.

Yeah, but there are always gems in the city, Mash. It just takes work to find them. I grew up in East York - Donlands and Cosburn - so I know that area well - always been an east end boy and always will! I have a friend in Leslieville right now with a loft apartment in a house that's gorgeous and she pays $600 a month inclusive. So tack on another $100 for incidentals and the rest is gravy - less food obviously.

...

You in the wife interested in getting into the wine biz? Not making, but just growing grapes. Hell, maybe I'll kickstart a winery.
True enough on that one. There are gems, I grew up down londonish way. If you're lucky then you're lucky on finding stuff, back a few years ago though you were kinda stuck it wasn't a renters market as much as it is today.

I had a few friends out there in the patch a year or so back. Most work for the feds now though, my sister does as well. One of my other buddies works in provincial corrections up peace river way, as he puts it's the asshole of nowhere. Very nice and all that, as long as you don't mind -40C in the winter. Oh nice, PEC is pretty good. I'm not really interested in growing or making(too much of a pita in my book) I have considered beekeeping as a side job. One of my cousins does it now, but I have a friend who was right friendly with the folks at the Inniskillin winery at Niagara on the lake. She was a professional taster for 15 odd years for the LCBO, if I can get a hold of her I'll have her fire you off an email. And maybe she can put you in touch with them if you've got any questions.

Getting ahold of her might be the problem. Last I heard from her she was on her whirl-wind honeymoon tour of the world, and all that. Her and her hubby were planning on a 9mo tour before settling down out in BC. That was about 3 months ago when they left.

Yeah, but in that case we're talking about what's relative. I have buddies who work in the Yukon, the Oil Sands, etc. and make what most people consider huge bank but their cost of living is also absurdly high. It's not like it's cheap bringing in all those supplies. Take Toronto for example, poverty wage when adjusted for cost of living is $16 an hour. Way off from minimum wage. However, 2-3k per month ain't bad for anyone. You may not be getting ahead, but it's hardly poverty level even in any major city. You may not be living downtown in some sweet pad, but you're doing alright commuting from the burbs. The trick is - as always - finding the best value for your money. Hell, I'd love to live in the country but damn if I know how I could make a living out there.
Yeah, relative is a good point which is what I was trying for in my slightly drug induced state. Ah pain killers for the pain. But Fort Mac really isn't in the middle of nowhere perse, even Grand Cache and Grand Prairie aren't. My sister lives in GC, but milk is $8/4L there, and bread is $6/loaf. So she drives to GP for groceries every month and freezes everything perishable. What drives the cost is the fact that it's a coal mining town and the wages are high, so even if it costs low to bring it in. It's the cost that can be born. And I'm not even sure you can live on $16/hr in Toronto these days. 5ish maybe 6ish years ago when the ex and I were living off of Danforth and Broadview(about a 3min walk from the subway station) we were paying $1300/mo for a basement apt. Though I will say some of the fsking roach traps in that area...ugh. At least the house was nice.

I don't live in the country, but I live in a smallish enough community that it's just close enough to it. Small enough that people know you by face, and reputation but large enough that you've got all the amenities, or they're close by.

What the hell kind of diamond-encrusted palace are you living in if you consider 2-3k a month impoverished? I'm living in a very decent 2-bedroom apartment for $755/mo! If I had an extra 1-2 grand, I could eat whatever I want, finance a brand new car, and have a premium cable package with like 2000 channels! Sheeeit...
I can think of one for sure and that'd be oil patch money. At 2-3k a month unless you're living away from the patch, like in Grande Prairie and commuting in by plane to Fort Mac(fort mcmurray) and living on-site, you'll be living impoverished(there's a few other places away from the patch too). An example of how wacky prices are, the tim-tarts(girls and guys serving at tim hortons) make just under $18/hr which is enough to make ends meet.
