    The average temperature for the month of February is below -20C. I don't mind winter, but this is cold :(

    There is undoubtedly an awful lot of wasted revenue -certain "stimulus" packages come to mind, the sort which paid out billions to "too-big-to-fail" financial institutions and their CEO's. (It's also interesting that the US has the highest corporate tax rate in the free world, which isn't mentioned in the article for some reason.) The article mentions Sweden specifically; funny, I don't see them on this list I found. Evidently, d̶e̶s̶t̶a̶b̶i̶l̶i̶z̶i̶n̶g̶ ̶a̶n̶d̶ ̶r̶e̶p̶l̶a̶c̶i̶n̶g̶ ̶t̶h̶e̶ ̶r̶e̶g̶i̶m̶e̶s̶ ̶o̶f̶ ̶s̶o̶v̶e̶r̶e̶i̶g̶n̶ ̶n̶a̶t̶i̶o̶n̶s̶ ̶a̶r̶o̶u̶n̶d̶ ̶t̶h̶e̶ ̶g̶l̶o̶b̶e̶ ̶i̶n̶ ̶w̶h̶o̶l̶e̶s̶a̶l̶e̶ ̶f̶a̶s̶h̶i̶o̶n̶ spreading democracy is kind of pricey these days.

    Hey, I don't want the money to go for so much of that! Other nations should definitely step up and be more of the world police in their parts of the world.

    But then there may not be a nation available to juxtapose with the US in terms the penetration of social programs as a function of allocation of revenue.

    "World police" ? How well has that worked out, regardless of who it is footing the bill?

    Strange... Another Canadian NBR member complained not so long ago that it was too warm. Are you sure you're a real Canadian?

    I don't mind having do homework throughout my entire 4 day weekend.

    I DO mind when people call me up and ask me to do something at the last minute while I'm trying to do my homework.

    "Hey, we (and by we, I mean 'I') need to get this done. It will only take an hour or 2..."

    "I can't. I'm doing homework."

    "But...but, it'll only take a couple hours. I really want to do it."

    :vbmad:

    "...I can't. I'm doing homework."

    "Well, when can you do it?"

    "After the weekend, when my homework's all finished."

    "But you can't do it now?"

    "NO! I'm doing homework!!!"

    Imagine having 5-6 instances of this over the last 4 days and you all will begin to understand how I can be so violently psychotic. :vbtongue:
