re: 3 Canadian and 0 US cities make the list of Top 10 Most Livable Cities in the World - igoringa
Vancouver is so overrated to live it is ridiculous. Phenomenal to visit I agree. Miserable drizzle weather, barely a highway to be found so getting around sucks, expensive as hell, and the healthcare sucks. Disclosure: lived there for 25 years. Wouldn’t go back to live....

Destin Condo Math - igoringa
First off, I know the predominant position of the board is to run from these. Point taken. But my question revolves around this... several condos list gross rental that approaches $45-$50K on a $500K unit. I am familiar with other markets, but would such numbers tend to net (excluding mortgag...

re: Dream retirement housing split - igoringa
[quote]Your plan has a fatal flaw. You are going to want to be using the houses in the locale when they are at their most desirable. Ain’t nobody wanting them in the off season.[/quote] By doing mountains in summer it leaves ski season in winter to rent. We are hikers. Summer we would rent the b...

Section 619 - igoringa
Been awhile since I have been up that way... does anyone know if the sound from the band/student section is blocked by the overhang. I seem to prefer the higher view (experimented lower bowl this past year) but want to make sure I can hear the band and such...

re: Rally: Trump offers "Pocahontas" $1M to take DNA test, prove she has Indian heritage - igoringa
[quote]ou're right. He is doing it on purpose. Because his recent tax returns would confirm what Trump Jr. said in 2009, that a majority of the investment they got was from Russia.[/quote] Do you know what is actually on a tax return and what isn’t? Seriously. And without even knowing th Jr...

re: The truth about Trump and trade - igoringa
Explain how running trade deficits which are in part funded by massive fiscal deficits are a good thing. We borrow from China to buy more from China then they buy from us. I can buy the trade deficits being positive if it is the result of the growth of our consumption power and strength, but n...

re: WH Economic Advisor: "Special place in hell" for Trudeau after G7 stunt - igoringa
[quote]This idea that Canada is getting away with putting tariffs on our goods while we do nothing is just wrong. Both sides have tariffs on certain industries. We do it to each other - it isn’t one sided[/quote] It is more one direction then the other and that is not debatable. Hence when they ...

re: WH Economic Advisor: "Special place in hell" for Trudeau after G7 stunt - igoringa
[quote]And they justify that tariff because the US government subsidizes dairy farmers[/quote] That is such a weak argument - the amount of the tariff is in no way correlated to any perceived subsidy from the US government. The goal of the tariff and their strict internal quota is to establish a...

re: The day Canada burned down the White House - igoringa
To illustrate the point - notice that the CBC doesn’t even have this on their website. The globe and mail does but goes only as far to say ‘the reference itself is not entirely historically accurate’. They can’t say anything more then that because it is a symbol of national pride. Too funny. ...

re: The day Canada burned down the White House - igoringa
[quote] But saying Canada burned the White House just because Canada at that time was just a part of the British Empire is just dishonest. [/quote] I agree Cocky - I am simply telling you though that is how it is presented in Canada. It was drilled into us. It is the reason the Canadian governm...
