    Happy Thanksgiving

    Resurrecting the Thanksgiving thread, (Canadian version) for 2019. I am thankful for spending a gorgeous fall day in Lake Rosseau with family, going for a run through the rolling hills by myself, walking the local labrynth with the grandkids, and not having to kill nor eat a 🦃 That tank though.

    Far far too early to be making these trades based on these reasons..lol. Come on. Although, Gauthier's play is making a strong case of moving out Tavares.

    I don't really want to, and I'll hazard a guess and say Army doesn't either. We should discuss potentially using it when the site goes offline temporarily so we can use it as an announcement platform. We went from 1 active Mod and 1 Active Admin to 0 Active Mods and 2 Active Admins lol Things will be fine. I promise you. No you don't lol I don't think you need any email addresses to reach us. What are the chances we ban someone by mistake? What are the chances we ban someone period? I'm almost positive Uteck was the last member actually banned. And that was before I was even made a Mod. If the site goes down, I'd rather just use Facebook as a broadcasting point. I'm not a big fan of your coloured names for donations. It feels wrong. You donate to the site because you want to, not because you want to feel special and let everyone know you're special. Feels wrong, but you can feel free to discuss it.

    That Bertuzzi line to start the season has been fucking incredible. The Tavares line better figure it out because you know that’s what Babcock’s matchup will be.

    Kulemin posted a link to some charts. Did you check them out? You still havn't posted anything so I'm hoping you clicked on his instead, since you said that you'd look it up & post it. Ok, so what we can see from his link is CEO pay gradually pulling further away from worker wages in the 70s & 80s, and then dramatically in the 90s to the 2000s, and now maintains (more or less factoring in economic downturns) a 300:1 ratio, where it used to be 30/40:1 ratio. We can also see a continual and steady rise in productivity, based on the production of workers, technological improvements, organization, etc, etc from the 1950s through to today. This indicates that it is not a remote few of super-capable CEOs who are able to maximize efficiency in the face of lack-luster broader societal performance. No, we see gradual and predictable progress of productivity across most sectors, likely spurred on by technological advances, longer working hours, and not ceo genius. Then you can look up corporate profits over time, and see the gradual increase over the last 40 years (excepting a few crashes, ala 2008, followed by a quick bounce-back to above pre-crash numbers). (https://tradingeconomics.com/canada/corporate-profits) IF ceo's were truly as you say a rare breed of person that can somehow manage such massive corporations, where few others can, we would unlikely see continual and gradual improvements over decades across all sectors of business. There would be significant downturns as corporations failed to procure capable CEOs, and in turn would have huge loses in profits, ceo pay, productivity, etc. Except those things aren't happening.... are they? It's almost as if productivity continues to grow despite this so called supply & demand drought on capable CEOs. So then why do these figures keep rising? Could be it other factors other than supply & demand of corporate clowns? And make no mistake, if you've ever dealt with corporate, in *any* field where the company is worth billions, you should know just how incompetent and disassociated with actual business they really are. That's because they aren't the critical engine of what makes *most* business successful or not. Let me suggest a few other possible reasons why these figures might exist, other than shortages of talent. Tax cuts, with a lack of re-investment into the businesses. A lack of workers' rights to ensure fair pay increases as productivity increases. Globalization allowing for the removal of manufacturing & many service centers to nations with lower wages, with the tacit approval of governments who fail to protect industries who *just so happen* to donate to said leaders in many different financial streams. The proliferation of tax-loopholes, with no real enforcement of tax laws, or the desire to close legal loopholes. Multi-national corporations shipping out corporate hubs to outside territories, removing much interactions between actual operations & leadership. The proliferation of monopolies & oligopolies, where competition for workers is non-existent, and profits can then be allocated with little regard for workers opinions. I couldn't name all the factors if I tried, because I'm not well versed in this enough, but even as a laymen, let's face it, there's no ceo shortage that is responsible for what we're seeing. It's just corruption and greed, and cowardice from our "leaders." That's it. Either stand up and vote for someone who's going to stand up for basically everyone you've ever known and will know, or keep voting for cowardly corporate shills, who's pay day comes afterwards in closed corporate events in the form of shitty speeches. This is coming from someone who is in favor of capitalism too. I'm not asking for a radical re-organization of society, just a re-organization of what laws get to be applied to who, and what is a reasonable tax burden for each according to their ability. It's funny, every right winger trots out 'each according to their ability,' except when it comes to a progressive tax. then it's 'fuck you, die because you can't afford medication you slob.'

    It wasn't a goof of a first round pick. Even if he never steps foot on NHL ice. It was high risk, high reward. It was situationally a very good pick regardless of the end result.

    and you as well. I've acknowledged my privilege. We're all playing on the same privilege playing field when we're discussing things here. You use the privilege card so haphazardly it's a detriment to it's appropriate use and people like Mitchy and CognitiveBias end up getting the wrong idea about it and develop a reluctance to accept the term. Our goal should be to get people to acknowledge their white privilege in order to help bring to light the problems people without that privilege face. Then we can have everyone working together to solve the issues. Instead it seems your goal is to beat everyone over the head with the fact that they're white and male as if it's suppose to accomplish anything. This is why I think you're a fraud. You're more concerned with making others feel worse and making yourself feel as though you are better than others than actually caring about the issues. If you really wanted to bring to light the white male privilege you'd do so in a better way. If you really wanted to get the general public on board with recognizing white male privilege you wouldn't be such a British cunt about it. What you and people like you do is create a bigger divide between people. You're not in it to unite everyone or make the world a better place, you're the most divisive prick on the forum. The proper time to use the privilege card is in situations like the federal election thread where Cognitive Bias was going on about indigenous issues to Raiden. That's a clear example of when you remind someone to check their privilege. When you throw it around like you do it loses it's weight and meaning, especially when you use it towards someone who has already acknowledged their privilege and it's irrelevant to the matter at hand.

    Moving onto another question from the public. "Armster has reached out to the public a few times in fundraising attempts to cover the cost of the forum. It is clear that at this rate we will be out of a forum due to hosting costs within a few years. How will you as a moderator solve our budget?"

    For the first time since Babcock has been in Toronto, the buck stops at him. Dubas & Co. have put a roster together that should be able to compete against any team in the league. They've done their part. Time for the head coach to do his. I'm sure management is watching closely at how the team is managed on ice.

    Exactly. its so unfucking real that Matthews and Tavares dont play more. Its like Babcock finds it unfair to other teams to win every game, to have the stars be stars and dominate the game. It’s happened last season and again this season. He needs to be fired before too much damage is done.

    This team needs to be winning, what the fuck are you talking about fun for? Fun comes when you win, if this team isn't embarrassed and doesn't come out next game acting it like it, they have no fucking soul. The only consistent thing this team has is Matthews and he's quickly getting McDavided here. It's fucking pathetic. I wish I could blame other people for my fuck ups and just not show up to work. These guys are wet tissue soft and fucking running on stupid juice. Marner is running on stupid juice out of a juice bottle held by his father telling him he better start skating. Having said all that, I'm getting really fucking tired of Matthews putting in his work, and other players getting the ice time as a reward. This shit has to stop, because if we start November as a .500 club, fire everyone that makes any decisions on lineups and special teams and move on. Bring Dallas Eakins back. This should be an easy job. Are you playing hockey? Yes? Play Matthews. I don't fucking get this infatuation of leashing Matthews all fucking year long, and then leashing him even more in the playoffs.

    trudeau has a few things going for him more than wynne did though, firstly he’s not a woman, a lesbian, and most importantly, his government hasn’t been in power for a record amount of time. people have soured on him, but it’s still in question just how much. I actually thought Bernier did a much better in the debate than scheer. he denied & explained all of his more heinous comments, and did a good job of shifting the viewpoint on his stance on immigration & ‘canadian’s first’ message. scheer’s near singular focus on Trudeau I think went too far in it’s balance, and I think he came off very poorly.

    Racism and discrimination in Canada

    To your first paragraph: Absolutely. I will never deny that and I also agree that we can all be guilty of it. However, when it comes to heavy social issues, we mustn't do that. Even if it takes every ounce of focus you have, don't. It is not fair to those who experience the things we can never experience to use our biases to judge their situations. So, in this particular discussion it should be kept to objective views at worst and if you really want to try to discuss it, use empathy. Try to put yourself in the shoes of someone else. If you can muster all that up, then and only then can you have an intellectually honest discussion. The 2nd paragraph was me showing how you drag your own reality and project it onto the situation.

    for some reason he doesn't accept messages, so fuck him. ... what's the comment! msg me! iunno how i can disagree with every take you've ever had, ever, and yet you go and use a chris farley reference like that. (dunno what ref jodi was talking about with 'captain fantastic'?) fun fact mitchy, there are certain words that do not use the apostrophe then S to indicate ownership. I would normally stfu because my grammar and sentence structure is atrocious, but on this one I do know. So: The car's door was red. - vs - Its door was red. You don't put the apostrophe on "it" in that example, because the apostrophe on the word "it," must always indicate the short form of "it is."

    James Neal scored 4 goals tonight, he has 6 on the year. Lucic punched Zadorov, who didn’t want to fight, in the face - that’s the highlight of his season so far. It’s conceivable that Neal will have scored more goals in the first week this season than Lucic will score all year.
