Clinton Trump Debate Shows Deplorable State of US Politics by Jamie Gilcig SEPT 27, 2016 http://cornwallfreenews.com/2016/09/27/clinton-trump-debate-shows-deplorable-state-of-us-politics-by-jamie-gilcig-sept-27-2016/ http://cornwallfreenews.com/2016/09/27/clinton-trump-debate-shows-deplorable-state-of-us-politics-by-jamie-gilcig-sept-27-2016/#comments Tue, 27 Sep 2016 15:30:42 +0000 http://cornwallfreenews.com/?p=64788 Cornwall Ontario – I watched the debate between US Presidential candidates Hilary Rodham Clinton and Donald Trump.

It was not the reality show gore fest that many were expecting.   It wasn’t very entertaining or informative.    I don’t think it ultimately will change the voter turn out or results.   It did highlight a few things for this Canuck that went to school in the US, and considers the World’s greatest Super Power as a second home, and at times a first one.

Hilary has bigger hands than Trump.

Trump is not a seasoned experienced politician nor debater.   He actually exceeded expectations with me except for the one exception where he rambled about 400 pound guys writing from their basements.     That seemed odd as I’m sure that’s a demographic that is more likely to vote for Donald.

Hilary seemed to be spending so much time focusing on appearing Presidential than actually shredding Trump and improving her chance to actually get elected.  For her to be so close to Trump in the polls is clearly a sign of weakness when it comes to her campaign.

Both candidates spoke to their people and stayed close to the messages.

What many are missing is that part of Trump’s appeal is to people who have been left out of the political system, and in 2016 there are an awful lot of those people, both Democrats and Republicans.

The Clinton attacks on Trump are actually helping Trump.    His life is public mostly and there are very few surprises and secrets to roll while Clinton herself has had many revealed.

Compared to Mr. Bush Trump actually is articulate and proposes actual ideas.    While many reasonable Americans probably wouldn’t agree with building fences along the Mexican border Trump is actually an elevation over Bush.

It’s sad that most visible minorities side with the Democrats as the days of Kennedy are long gone.     The gun lobby should not be having the impact it’s having in this race.

All politicians lie.  It’s how they get caught that nails them.

The sad part is that if these two are the best that the US can come up with to be head of state what does that say about the state itself?

When the United States has a cold Canada and other countries end up buying case loads of tissues.    The result on this hot mess will lead in this writer’s opinion to some record purchases of 3 ply.

At the end of the day this election should be of concern to the entire World as it will effect us all.

Note: There is a poll embedded within this post, please visit the site to participate in this post’s poll.

What do you think my fellow Canucks?   Who scares you more?  Trump or Clinton?

The answer to the question of who won the first debate isn’t as relevant as to who lost.    That answer sadly is all of us.

You can post your comments below.  Please read our comment policy.

Ontario Suspends Large Renewable Energy From Waste Procurement SEPT 27, 2016 http://cornwallfreenews.com/2016/09/27/ontario-suspends-large-renewable-energy-from-waste-procurement-sept-27-2016/ http://cornwallfreenews.com/2016/09/27/ontario-suspends-large-renewable-energy-from-waste-procurement-sept-27-2016/#comments Tue, 27 Sep 2016 14:05:48 +0000 http://cornwallfreenews.com/?p=64785

September 27, 2016

Decision Will Reduce Electricity Costs for Consumers

Ontario will immediately suspend the second round of its Large Renewable Procurement (LRP II) process and the Energy-from-Waste Standard Offer Program, halting procurement of over 1,000 megawatts (MW) of solar, wind, hydroelectric, bioenergy and energy from waste projects.

This decision is expected to save up to $3.8 billion in electricity system costs relative to Ontario’s 2013 Long-Term Energy Plan (LTEP) forecast. This would save the typical residential electricity consumer an average of approximately $2.45 per month on their electricity bill, relative to previous forecasts. No additional greenhouse gas emissions are being added to the electricity grid.

On September 1, 2016, the Independent Electricity System Operator (IESO) provided the Minister of Energy with the Ontario Planning Outlook, an independent report analyzing a variety of planning scenarios for the future of Ontario’s energy system. The IESO has advised that Ontario will benefit from a robust supply of electricity over the coming decade to meet projected demand.

Informed by the Ontario Planning Outlook, consultations and engagements will begin this fall with consumers, businesses, energy stakeholders and Indigenous partners regarding the development of a new Long-Term Energy Plan, which is scheduled to be released in 2017. As part of this plan, Ontario remains committed to an affordable, clean and reliable electricity system, including renewables.

Ontario has established itself as a North American leader in clean energy development, attracting billions of dollars in private sector investment and generating over 42,000 jobs in the clean technology sector. The province has about 18,000 MW of wind, solar, bioenergy and hydroelectric energy contracted or online and the electricity supply is now over 90 per cent emissions-free.

Responsible management of Ontario’s electricity system is part of the government’s economic plan to build Ontario up and deliver on its number-one priority to grow the economy and create jobs. The four-part plan includes helping more people get and create the jobs of the future by expanding access to high-quality college and university education. The plan is making the largest investment in hospitals, schools, roads, bridges and transit in Ontario’s history and is investing in a low-carbon economy driven by innovative, high-growth, export-oriented businesses. The plan is also helping working Ontarians achieve a more secure retirement.

QUICK FACTS

  • Ontario’s new LTEP will be guided by a number of strategic themes including greenhouse gas reductions, innovation, grid modernization, conservation and energy efficiency, renewable energy, distributed energy and continued focus on energy affordability for homes and businesses.
  • At the end of 2015, Ontario’s installed wind capacity represented almost 40 per cent of all installed wind capacity in Canada.
  • Ontario is home to more than 99 per cent of all installed solar photovoltaic capacity in Canada.
  • Ontario successfully eliminated coal-fired electricity generation in 2014, the single largest greenhouse gas emissions reduction action in North America.

Our Bank of Canada does not have vaults filled with electronic cash. As remarkable as it may seem, the Bank (owned 100% by the federal government) simply creates money whenever needed by computer entry. It follows that the federal government can never run out of Canadian dollars. This explains how immediately after the 2008 financial crisis the Harper government without raising taxes was able to bail out big institutional lenders by replenishing their coffers through a $200 billion “Extraordinary Financing Framework”.

The federal government can either spend too much causing inflation, or spend too little allowing mass unemployment. Since currently there are 1.3 million Canadians looking for work, it is clear that the federal government is nowhere near expending enough. Increased infrastructure renewal should be supplemented by creation of community-level jobs so that all skill levels can be put back to work as soon as possible.  As John Maynard Keynes once noted,

Look after the unemployment, and the Budget will look after itself.”
