  1. After many people telling me to get into mining Ive finally done it and I realized how much I miss tweaking my GPU xD

      By mining you are helping to bring down GPU prices while simultaneously earning money. It's a good thing.

      @CUDA_Cores Shit, so I should start mining some ETH or something with my 470 to help bring GPU prices down too? /s

       

      Nah I'd rather put my PC to work on something actually useful like F@H

      @wcreek When you mine with your GPU, you increase the total network difficulty, thus driving out others from mining. So yes, if you mine ethereum you will help correct the GPU shortage be removing the incentive for others to mine. 

  2. Also are extremely in debt, have high taxes, and are fairly single cultural. The US is extremely broad with a huge amount of issues that can cause those with healthcare being a small part of it. ITs not a true free market system because as you said, things like forced private heath insurance bills are caused by the government putting influence on the system driving prices up.
  3. About half that in most provinces, some of them do, and about a third, on top of the massive taxes we pay.
  4. Its not legal language, its Wikipedias tendency to overuse unnecessary amounts of complicated language that are not needed making basic comprehension difficult without reading. Its not an imagined power, its the legislature that can push the laws and argue this, they are the defendants in the cases going to the court, and can provide evidence against the plaintiffs case.
  5. Currently in high school so no I do not but I can google stuff which is nice about having the internet. So looking at it quickly through the overly complicated language of wikipedia I can see that the test is basically seeing if the law will have an overly harsh effect on people and making sure the law doesnt overstep exactly what needs to be done. But looking at this even it is extremely vague and basically goes with whatever side is in power for minimizing free speech as it still uses the language "free and democratic society" which is highly subjective as to what you believe that means. It also talks about a balance, which with a small enough group at the other end, or enough power on one could sway towards one end.
  6. Except it can be constitutional, it literally says their in the constitution the laws can be passed, its in the first charter.
  7. The laws can be changed to anything that "Charter rights can be limited by other laws so long as those limits can be shown to be reasonable in a free and democratic society." Meaning any of those laws can be changed about free speech including hate speech. Going back to a place like Soviet Russia where saying anything against the state could get you killed or sent to a Gulag shows how a majority government can push down the minority for what the powerful/majority believe in, stifling conflicting views from going through. And if we ban anything that has no science backing it opinions and many left ideas which are currently the "majority" about white people would also be hate speech, but these are not charged as such, showing an inequality in the treatment of hate speech. Laws should place everyone equality not some people given benefits because of stuff that happened in the past.
  8. Yes I did the results literally said at the end that private institutions beat them by around 11% in almost every statistic for performance. Considering how much we pay in taxes for healthcare it doesnt end up being that much more for the average person with significantly quicker times and quality. And no its not, the reason why medication and its associated costs are so expensive in the US is because of government interference with the drug companies. http://time.com/money/4462919/prescription-drug-prices-too-high/ Government lobbying is also a huge issue which occurs throughout the system.
  9. I know, thats why I was pointing out how its damaging. I wasnt saying it had happened in Canada, I was pointing out how the law can be abused and how laws like it have been abused all over the world, specially for punishing minority political groups.
  10. https://tradingeconomics.com/country-list/personal-income-tax-rate - List of tax rates http://www.statcan.gc.ca/pub/11f0019m/11f0019m2015367-eng.htm - Education difference
  11. Going to bring this one up specifically. Health care is literally ass here, and any Canadian will agree with you. Its overpriced, wait times are horrendous, and the hospitals suck. It can take months to get an MRI or a transplant with people waiting years for operations that would happen in days if you lived in the United States. The only reason the system there is so bad is because of interfering laws with insurance companies and the governments, driving prices up because the government is forcing them to pay so much. Ill also point out all those countries are severely in debt due to government overspending. Id also like to point out all those countries you mentioned have some of the highest taxes in the world, which is a huge burden on the taxpayer who could get better healthcare for cheaper in a free market. Education is also always better in privatized institutions which can be shown from the higher success rates of people coming out of private schools.
  12. The vagueness is that any kind of "hurtful" thing directed towards someone can be classified as hate speech. If I lay out the facts for you and say something like (not saying its true just an example) "black people are statically less intelligent and more aggressive than other races" and someone gets hurt, you can still get charged, even though youre saying the truth based on facts. A society cant progress if facts and opinions of the majority oppress that of the minority, thats how things like Soviet Communism, and Nazism became so damaging to their respective countries. The Canadian constitution itself states that "Section 1 of the Charter says that Charter rights can be limited by other laws so long as those limits can be shown to be reasonable in a free and democratic society." This means the majority will always have a say over what the minority say because they are the ones who decide what is "reasonable" and why free speech needs to be absolute to protect the minority from repression by the majority.
  13. The "prohibited grounds" include race, gender, sex, pregnancy, marital status, ethnic or social origin, colour, sexual orientation, age, disability, religion, conscience, belief, culture, language and birth. The crime of crimen injuria ("unlawfully, intentionally and seriously impairing the dignity of another") may also be used to prosecute hate speech In 2011, a South African court banned "Dubula iBhunu (Shoot the Boer)", a derogatory song degrading Afrikaners, on the basis that it violated a South African law prohibiting speech that demonstrates a clear intention to be hurtful, to incite harm, or to promote hatred Those are extremely vague
  14. Except it sucks, free healthcare and free education always suck, really bad, like really bad
