  1. Two Colorado churches win lawsuit against state's Covid-19 mask and crowd limit requirements WWW.CNN.COM As the US enters what experts say will be another Covid-19 surge, a federal judge ruled two Colorado churches don't have to limit how many worshippers come in and...
  2. US nears daily Covid cases record amid warning of 500,000 deaths by February | Coronavirus | The Guardian WWW.THEGUARDIAN.COM Trump says US entering ‘final turn’ as scientists say situation could worsen if states ease measures designed to slow spread of virus What's everyone's guess for deaths by Feb 28? 500,000 seems high, but possible. That would be an average above 2,000/day from now until then.
  3. Just watched it, it was great. Loved the Running of the Americans at the end. America does not come out looking good in this movie, that's for sure.
  4. NDP on course to win a huge victory in BC. They've been governing with a minority with support from the Greens. Most exciting is their plan to introduce Quebec-style daycare for $10/day. It's a giant success in QC, and has resulted in more tax dollars being collected (by having more women in the workforce) than it has cost.
  5. Trudeau announces plan to purchase 76 million doses of Canadian-made COVID-19 vaccine WWW.CBC.CA Basically 2 doses for every Canadian, and a new facility in Quebec to manufacture vaccines. Also announced that federally-procured rapid tests are now being distributed to the provinces. This is on top of the already-purchased. Vaccines from other countries. So we will have a plethora of options, depending on which candidates win out. So 10 doses per person, though obviously only some will win. Cases are rising fast, here, whic
  6. There is some finished Adam Sandler Netflix movie sitting in a vault that could become the most-watched movie of all time if they play their cards right in the spring of 2021, lol.
  7. Apple May Be Seeking to Acquire Bond Film 'No Time to Die' for Apple TV+ WWW.MACRUMORS.COM Film critic and screenwriter Drew McWeeny has postulated on Twitter that Apple is seeking to acquire the rights to upcoming James Bond film "No... Anyone but Apple!
  8. I agree. No qualifiers, but I am also okay with effectively taxing it all back from people at the top by just raising income tax amounts by X% above X amount. Agreed. Unless UBI is set at something like $4,000/mo (pre-tax), then you are going to need supplemental supports. And even then, it should also be party based on location (unless the goal is to encourage people to move away from the most expensive urban centres).
  9. http://www.politico.com//favicon-16x16.png Trump campaign spokesperson claims parents of separated children don't want them back - POLITICO WWW.POLITICO.COM Multiple media outlets reported this week that the federal government remains unable to find the parents of more than 500 children who were separated from their families. Bold statement.
  10. I'm a big believer in UBI, but I also know it can't replace all of the safety net. For a healthy individual it would work, but what about someone who requires assisted care or special living facilities? There still needs to be additional programs in place for some groups of people who wouldn't be able to survive on $1,000 or $2,000/mo and can't work to supplement that income. But I do think UBI is a good fix for inequality, as you can easily tax it back at the top, and the money given to the bottom will immediately re-enter the economy anyway.
  11. Thanks! I wasn't sure how it worked. In Canada, wage-laws are entirely provincial with the exception of federally-regulated industries, where the federal government sets the rules (airlines, etc). While I do believe that wages should generally be tied to cost of living in an area (someone working at McDonald's in downtown NYC should probably make more than the same job in Fargo, ND), I also think it's important to have a base level nationally.
