The sky may be gray,
And the rain may fall down,
It’s a lovelay day,
for all but the clowns.
The Basht’rds are gone,
They’ve bitten the turf,
But for the rest of us,
it’s a great day,
in the best place….
…On Earf! 😆

“there is a recent study where scientist confirmed that if you speak Mandarin, your brain works differently.”

We see evidence of that on this blog at least 10 times a day.

@346, yesterday Global or CBC interviewed the sohpkeepers and the customers, all Asians, and they didn’t see it a big deal or made it out a race issue.
As for your analogy of “Star of David “, one is a willing peddler, the other one a vountary wearer.
The only people who took offence, as usual,, are the goold white folks.
Can’t explain to you the logic, but there is a recent study where scientist confirmed that if you speak Mandarin, your brain works differently.

@BBB – If individual rights trumpets over social justice then that’s fine. But don’t complaint about the consequence of that believe. One of which is scums like these corrupt officials stay here and enjoy a nice life, slowly polluting their surrounding, while law abiding working people struggles.

And don’t complain about how unfair it is, you made the rules, don’t blame the people who take advantage of it.

As vangrl would say, it’s your own fault.

@Bull! Bull! Bull! – if you guys like to keep this kind of scums in Canada then don’t believe surprise as your home slowly becomes a shithole.

What’s that saying? If you walk in a muddy river bank then you can’t expect to have clean shoes?

@patriotz – hate to break it to you but 90% of people don’t care about real vs nominal….heck try talking to people about real and nominal, people’s eye starts to rollover after 5 seconds.

Plus if house prices falls 20% in real terms but not in nominal terms, doesn’t it really make it cheaper if you nominal pay hasn’t gone up either??

Realistically everything is priced in nominal terms – house prices, your salary, mortgage payments. So nominal price fall is much more important than real.

@Mortgageslave – wow that’s a nice retort…I guess it’s too hard for you to use logic and facts and rationale to forward your views & points. Must be frustrating eh? I guess all those “you are no 1 no matter what”, “you deserve everything if you just try, doubly so if you try hard”, “everyone is special”, etc just don’t really work in real life for you?

As for fucking myself, well I don’t fully subscribe to that mono-sexual movements. But I’m sure you can teach me all about it after your next downtown masterbation club meeting 🙂

Regarding the Chinese Driver sign.
This sign is similar to the Star of David patch that the Juice in Nazi Germany had to wear.
Shame on the racist Chinese shopkeeper in Aberdeen Mall that sells these atrocities.

@338

notice how these bears like to hint at, imply, or make sarcastic comments that suggest a US style crash is coming but they won’t come out and say it?

maybe they’ve put their hand on that stove a few times too many already.

@314: “Are you expecting a us style crash in Vancouver?”

Guess I should comment on this. Price declines in US metros ranged from 6% to 60%+ over various time frames, so that’s not a very specific question.

I think a double digit real decline is inevitable and likely over 20%. Nominal decline is less certain. However only the first is needed to make buying today a worse deal than buying later.

wow! these bank thieves are cry babies. In 2012, they wrote two “books” of complaints: “wrote before their repatriation that during their segregation at the Fraser prison for about 1.5 years accusing the prison guards “guards check shí deliberately fiddling with genital, great insult and hurt has we of soul”, “Li Dongzhe Fraser prison detention period from 2007 to 2008 in September.

“Are you expecting a us style crash in Vancouver?”

Not at all, things look rosy with our Economy. Job growth is zero, oil tanking, dollar tanking, Go ahead and get the biggest mortgage they’ll qualify you for.

BTW, would you like $30,000, $60,000, how about $300,000 HELLOC.

Business is BOOMING!!

No risk at all.

PS – @SPACE889, Go fcuk yourself!

Canada is in the midst of a unprecedented housing boom that seems likely to bust. I was recently in Canada and noticed a schizophrenic oscillation between housing exuberance and oil-price despair. What did it mean for the Canadian economy’s outlook? Upon returning to the US, I did some research. What I found leads me to the conclusion that Canada is now among the most vulnerable large economies in the world. Here’s why.
