I read a post on here about a marine who came home & was killed at a bus stop the killers total take? 8 dollars. not canada, the u.s.
We tried the price fixing thing in the 70's, production went down & imports went up. that won't help.
You should be mad about subsidzing other places like the US when we wont help ourselves.
Cubas economy is growing because they are allowing poeple there to create & own businesses, after nearly 50 years of Fidel's iron fisted rule.
I have'nt seen any thing about price fixing in canada, not saying it didnt happen, but anyone involved should be jailed, not fined. fineing people, who made a million dollars illegaly , half a million dollars in fines doesnt do much to make an incentive to stop such practices.
Oh, & i'm a union electrician too, local 26, washington d.c.

Well technicalty Scott I'm a Steel worker and I assume your IBEW so you and Sid need to close ranks andf throw rocks at me for being only slightly less an offence to nature than Clak ( labour association gaining strength here week company controled pocket union ).

You guys actualy have a good union, being a steel woprker or an auto worker as a trades man lumps you into a larger group with significantly different values.

Cuba is actualy a nice place, every trip there I make I see the improvments and the creaping in of free enterprise as well as some good doses of Socialism that only a Canadian could aprove of  ( medicare lol ). They have a long way to go but until you see it and compare the place the say Mexico you realy can't compare he two places. For one thing in Cuba they want your money and treat you good so you come back in Mexico they cut off your fingers to steal your rings or lock you up unless you pay the bribe

It's a Good Life, If You Don't Weaken

for $8.00 they would kill you twice in Atlanta/that is the reason most of us are a well protected (armed) group///about 30 years ago  I remember a person killed over 1 cent/ it use to be unlawful to pump your own gas/ a person got in an argument with the person pumping the gas about what to pay because he stopped the pump between cents..the are still feeding the winner of the argument/he has a few more years to go on the life part of the sentence/
in 2 week it will be time for the gathering of the red necks in Denton n.c.// as usual expect a lot of engines ,tractors and heat/feel free to drop by and talk diesel///sid

Sounds like I should have read sid's post earlier as i just came back from picking up a couple of 15kw ST heads in NC, I could have waited a week & made a more enjoyable trip out of it, red necks, tractors & heat are three of my favorite things !

 Funny how "pro-choice" and "environmentalist" liberals never talk about that. Or how about this: the Live Earth concert to "save the planet" released more CO2 into the atmosphere than a fleet of 2,000 Humvees emit in a year?
