: And to put the record straight, I think I said (or at least, meant) the Canadian government - as a purely socialist government -
You would lose in a debate on this, the Canadian government had socialist undertones in it's begininngs but there is no longer any basis for that conclusion.If you are trying to say that socialized medicine somehow makes it unfit in a free enterprise system I'll debate you on that. For example, my brother in law has a serious back problem and has been unable to get it fixed with surgery because there are no hospital beds and no hospitals. Thanks to our conservatives (republicans). In fact, I would say he has a better chance of being treated for free here in the US than in Canada. Any time you want to go a few rounds on this. Feel free. Socialist, BAH!
: I STILL believe that freedom allows us to put out a better product, and we can find ways to be competitive. I wince when our bids are rejected, then awarded to Canadian studios who have a 70 cent dollar and then get provincial "incentive" rebates on their taxes.
WHERE THE HELL DID THIS COME FROM ??????? Since when did that start happening. GET THIS STRAIGHT JON!!!!! THERE ARE NO GRANTS, LOANS, SUBSIDES, INCENTIVES FOR TAKING AMERICAN WORK!!!!!!!!!!!!!
NONE!!!! I'm really tired of you bringing up this. If you have any proof post it otherwise stop trying to convince everyone there is some conspiracy. Anonimouse seems to think you back your self with *evidence*. Lets see it.
Next I expect to hear that animators get mail in rebates for every foot of American animation they do. What crap.
They'd rather lose two bucks buying a lottery ticket than invest some effort on the job producing a better product or service. "What's in it for me?" IS a valid question, but to answer it correctly you need to look beyond this Friday's paycheck.
: Anyway, nice talkin' with ya.
Tell you what Jon, I will list all the things I've done for free, animation for freinds, work on projects for no cash or recognition whatsover, time I spent, equiptment I've lent, connections I've made, references I've given. No money. Again, you dont know a damn thing about any of us. I'm getting tired of you sitting back and making summations of who we are without knowing anything about us. . It's your greatest flaw.It makes you blind.
