  8. Thanks for posting that. As your links also show, we are falling way behind in Canada, like the U.S. on maintaining our infrastructure. With the increased heavy traffic on our roads, the old way of financing maintenance and rebuilding isn't keeping up. Where do we go from here?

  14. I answered your question, you don't need to know anymore.
  15. Poll numbers like that are more than likely based on fearmongering spread by social media rather than hard economic data.
  16. https://www.msnbc.com/rachel-maddow-show/biden-s-first-year-economic-growth-reached-38-year-high-n1288089 In Biden's first year, economic growth reached a 38-year high Kevin McCarthy argued last year that Joe Biden's policies "have stalled our recovery," adding, "Bidenomics is bad for America." Yeah, about that... As a presidential candidate in 2016, Donald Trump made bold predictions about the kind of economic growth the United States would see if he were elected. Americans would celebrate, the Republican said, as annual GDP growth reached 4 percent for the first time in decades. It was among the most jarring of Trump's broken promises. Even before the pandemic, GDP growth in Trump's first three years failed to reach 3 percent. But as it turns out, the U.S. economy was able to reach growth rates unseen in a generation, but it happened under President Joe Biden. The Associated Press reported this morning: By any fair measure, this is excellent news that exceeded expectations. In fact, a year ago, none of the major forecasters were projecting growth this strong in the United States. Domestic growth even outpaced China's economic growth in 2021 for the first time in decades. To help drive the point home, consider this newly revised chart, showing annual GDP since 1980: by Taboola Sponsored Stories EAR TODAYLiving in Ontario?

Remember, early last year, House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy insisted that the Democratic president's economic policies "have stalled our recovery," adding, "Bidenomics is bad for America." Around the same time, Rep. Jim Banks, the chair of the Republican Study Committee, argued that the White House's economy agenda was sending the economy into a "tailspin." Recommended

  18. woxof Let me make it simple so you can understand it. If I don't set foot in a Walmart, how can I pay for something there?
  19. Even if they were giving things away, I wouldn't step foot in one.
  20. When one takes into perspective the amount of time from the first flight at Kitty Hawk, to the Apollo 11 moon landing, it is apparent improvements to electric vehicles are moving along at light speed in comparison. https://www.ladbible.com/news/tesla-battery-life-20220118
