Right on. Yes, it's the third time you repeat this charade. Oh, BTW, here is something for you :
Canada's major exports?
In: Economics, Canada, Importing and Exporting [Edit categories]
1. Petroleum products 64 billion $
2. Passenger vehicles (cars & Vans) 37 billion $
3. Car parts & accessories 16 Billion $
4. Aluminum products 8 billion $
5. Lumber 7 billion $
Fastest growing exports
1. Sugar 43 million $
2. Zinc 1.4 billion $
3. Precious Metals 700 million $
4. Oil drilling equipment 1 billion $
5. Copper 2 billion $
6. Maple syrup.
Oh, the above does not list agricultural exports which bring in $40 billion. So you see, Rogue, yes, oil is big, it's number 1, but others are not far behind.
Want a source? Please ask.
Did you know that 2/3 of our automobiles are exported to the ...USA? Did you know that savvy American buyers who know better look for Canadian-made cars when they contemplate an auto purchase?
Oil : Did you know the U.S. produces a lot more oil than we do? Would you be a third world country too without it? A piece of advice, Rogue. Stick to helicopters, tiny planes and trucks.
Now, let me ask you. How much money does it take to support a country of forty-eight million people and where would you be without our protection?

Over 99% of the past 250 plus Obama appointees have been confirmed. The Republicans are doing their due diligence on this issue, even if they haven't been able to stop Obama agenda. They were elected to debate these issues,that is what we expect them to do,if they don't do what they are elected for then they are subject to getting voted out at the next election.

How does one become such a loser that Topix is the center of his lil world? Hey idiot, I'm not Dale! LMAO! So, are you two gum-flappers idiots or enemies? Your boy is a fraud, liar and an epic fail! Fact. And you still support him, that says a whole bunch about you Path. None of it good, either. Get a life you DAB! LMAO!!!
Sharing non-comprehension with Rogue now? Who said anything about running the country? you mentioned poll, and I replied and there was nothing in what you wrote about how to run the country. God, you're such a LOSER. Topix the centre of my world? Would be interesting to see the number of your posts against mine the last 12 months. And, I spend much less time than you do as I can write a long post in 2 minutes whereas it probably takes you 30 minutes to write one line.

Yes, you are Dale, liar.

Not my boy, I'm not American. And he's far, oh so far from perfect, my so-called boy, but so superior to the alternative. Remember those 8 losers debating last year. They rescued the least-pitiful one and Obama trounced him. Even the big Repub boys and girls would not attend his coronation at the GOP convention. Some party.

I'm not watching your crummy video. Rob Ford is a bum, a crack-cocaine user and a foul loudmouth though he's no match for you. He is the shame of Toronto, of Ontario and all of Canada. They have stripped him of all his powers and budgets but cannot by law strip him of the mayoralty. Too bad.

With all the waves of bad news about the Obamacare website and the canceled policies, it would be easy to conclude that nothing in this law will ever work — that it’s just too big and complicated and messy.

But that’s not the complete picture of the Affordable Care Act rollout. There are a few bright spots — just enough to suggest that, for all the early disasters, the law’s fate isn’t final yet.
Continue Reading

There are states that are running their own websites and enrolling a lot of people, way more than the amateur-hour federal website that serves most of the states. Medicaid enrollment, another part of the law, is going significantly better than the signups for private insurance — nearly 400,000 people were determined to be eligible in October.

And nationally, 1.5 million people applied for health coverage in October — suggesting that there’s a lot more potential interest than the 106,000 who got all the way through the federal and state Obamacare websites to select a private health plan.

So what do the bright spots tell us about the future of Obamacare? They certainly don’t tell us that the rollout is going well. But they do suggest that it’s not impossible for the law to work, health care experts say — because if it really were impossible, it wouldn’t be working anywhere.

In other words, the Obamacare rollout that we’ve all seen is not the story of a fatally flawed law. It’s a story of incompetence.

That’s probably not the talking point the White House is looking for. But it does suggest to health care experts that if the federal HealthCare.gov website ever does get its act together, there’s more potential for success in achieving the main goal — expanding health coverage to millions of Americans who couldn’t get it before — than the early numbers suggest.

“What we’re seeing is what’s possible under the Affordable Care Act,” said Alan Weil, executive director of the National Academy for State Health Policy.“The question is, how long will it be before we see those possibilities?”

In California, nearly 80,000 people had selected private health plans as of Nov. 19 — way beyond the 27,000 people who had picked private health plans in October through the federal website that serves 36 states. In New York, more than 76,000 had enrolled as of Nov. 24, including roughly 41,000 in private health plans and 35,000 in Medicaid. Enrollment has been also been going smoothly in Washington state and Connecticut — and even in Kentucky, Mitch McConnell’s home state, where Democratic Gov. Steve Beshear has been a vocal advocate of the law.

Only 14 states and the District of Columbia are running their own health insurance exchanges, so the law can get only so far with their efforts. But the lesson of these states’ early successes is that “where a state wants to make this work, it looks like they can,” said Peter Lee, executive director of Covered California, the state’s health insurance exchange.

(WATCH: Health care: What Obama said, why it mattered)

Elaine Kamarck, a former adviser to Al Gore who worked on the “reinventing government” project in the Clinton administration, says that even at the national level, it shouldn’t have been impossible to build a functioning health care website. Despite all the federal government’s IT procurement problems,“the federal government does technology fairly well,” she said — from the advanced electronic surveillance capabilities of the National Security Agency to the rovers NASA sends to Mars.

The real lesson of the rollout, Kamarck said, is that the Department of Health and Human Services broke every rule for managing a big technological project well — and the successful states didn’t.

The three basic rules for launching a successful government tech project, Kamarck said, are to give one person the power and responsibility to supervise the entire project; build and test the technology repeatedly, since everyone knows websites crash; and create an environment where people feel free to give the boss bad news.

“Somehow, every rule of managing technology in government was broken with this website,” said Kamarck, who’s also the founding director of the Brookings Institution’s Center for Effective Public Management.

The bright spots don’t erase the other unpopular tradeoffs that Americans are discovering with the law — they’ll still be furious over canceled policies and whatever other nasty surprises are around the corner.

And there won’t be any end to the debate over whether the law has basic problems that can never be overcome. Lanhee Chen, Mitt Romney’s former policy director and now a research fellow at the Hoover Institution, says he believes the law is fundamentally flawed — even if a few states do well with it — because the conditions for success are too narrow to work across the country.

“There are going to be states where they won’t get help from state regulators. They’re not going to get that promotional push to get people enrolled,” said Chen.“The fundamental flaw in the law is that it requires people to be enrolled who don’t want to be enrolled.”

The successes also don’t even mean every state is doing well. Maryland, a blue state that was determined to be one of the leaders in implementing Obamacare, is still struggling with its website. Oregon’s website has never worked and hasn’t signed up a single person, according to Reuters. Hawaii’s is barely bumping along.

Do you think Iraq is better off? Do you think Afghanistan is better off?(the Assembly is about to vote a law approving stoning adulterers to death). Were Central American and some South American countries better off thanks to your constitution from the 50s to the late 80s? Do you even know what you are talking about? Do you know the enormity of your ignorance?
