Actually, more Canadians voted for Scheer than Trudeau.

And that is relevant how?  What does that mean to you?  2/3 voted for someone other than Scheer.

I think the election turned out as well as could have been hoped with a Lib minority.

What context are we missing here....?

Did you watch the complete exchange between the two?

It was a dumb ass thing to say and he rightly apologized but rather than just blindly taking something out of context, it is worth looking at the whole exchange.
Did you watch the complete exchange between the two?

the neanderthal CPC MP Arnold Viersen (Alberta - Peace River-Westlock) started his comments with the dumbazz question to NDP MP, Laurel Collins (Victoria)... asking if she ever considered being a sex worker! The only other "context", as you say, has him attempting to support the Harper Conservative Bill C-36 legislation that MacKay introduced in 2014 as Justice Minister... that, as many analysts state, actually makes it harder for sex workers to do their job safely: Evaluating Canada's Sex Work Laws: The Case for Repeal

I would suggest a new thread if you feel a need/want to support Viersen's, as you say, "context"... where, I interpret, his "strong Christian faith" doesn't allow him to accept that some women are in the work at their own volition... not forced, not coerced.

what is with these idgit Conservatives who demean/attack teachers & education... like justVisitingJason, like DOFO... like O'Tool... implying PM Trudeau's years as a teacher weren't, as he states, "real world" work!



as for those stated "12 years served in the Canadian Armed Forces", I interpret 7 of those years as paid education in regards an undergraduate degree from the Royal Military College of Canada (RMC) in Kingston and, while in the Canadian Forces reserves, a law degree from Dalhousie University in Halifax..... I stand to be corrected but I interpret the other 5 years as the service commitment required to meet the terms of his military paid education. The point being, I believe, he got out after his service commitment was realized.

Iím not supporting Viersons comment, but waldo being waldo continues to take one sentence out of context without  posting or linking the whole exchange between the two.

bullshyte! I offered my interpretation of what your presumptive "missing context" was; again:

member wilber being member wilber... you beak-off about "missing context" but haven't said a single word as to what said "missing context" was! There's certainly nothing stopping you from, as you say, "posting or linking the whole exchange between the two" - is there. Again, step-up and state your claimed "missing context". Is this a problem for you?

You took a statement out context and ran with it. Post the whole exchange, it's not up to me. I didn't start this. Why don't you want to? Don't tell us you can't with all the other crap you link and post.

The reason I brought it up is I think Vierson actually had a point, but he made himself a dumb ass because he would have never said something like that to a man.

again, you're not adding anything of relevance here! You continue to speak of, "missing context... out of context", while adding dickAll as to the said context you're wailin'/whinin' about. You say the dumbAzz Viersen has a point, but you can't manage to articulate just what your claimed point is. ;D Member wilber being member wilber!

Still wonít post it will you. Come on waldo, itís easy to find. It think Viersen had a point but he is a dumb ass because he made an ignorant comment which has allowed the noise from that to completely drown out the argument he was trying to make. And thatís the way you like it.

oh c'mon member wilber... being member wilber! You blather on about missing context, but you can't/won't state what's missing. You claim the guy has a point, but you can't/won't state what that point is. Notwithstanding CPC MP Arnold Viersen's (Alberta - Peace River-Westlock) ignorant comment, you apparently believe what he said has merit, but you can't/won't articulate your interpreted merit.

as below, I've stated/previously re-quoted what I interpret CPC MP Arnold Viersen's comments were about, but you can't/won't counter what I've stated in that regard!

The only other "context", as you say, has him attempting to support the Harper Conservative Bill C-36 legislation that MacKay introduced in 2014 as Justice Minister... that, as many analysts state, actually makes it harder for sex workers to do their job safely: Evaluating Canada's Sex Work Laws: The Case for Repeal

... as you say, "context"... where, I interpret, his "strong Christian faith" doesn't allow him to accept that some women are in the work at their own volition... not forced, not coerced.

quit playing silly-buggar and say something... preferably in a separate dedicated thread related to the topic NDP MP, Laurel Collins (Victoria) was commenting on... before dumbazz Viersen asked her if she ever considered being a sex worker!  ;D

Not playing your stupid games. You can either post the whole exchange plus the question that started it then we can discus it, or you can put a sock in it.

I'm quite fine showcasing member wilber... being member wilber!

Someone on twitter described measuring debt nominally as crayon economics.  I think they might be on to something.

That's about the best way to describe it. These armchair economists with little more than an introductory course (if that) are so clueless, it's impossible to even discuss the issues with them. Conservative politicians feed on this ignorance to dupe working class people into voting against their interests (ie, conservative parties engaging in reverse Robin Hood policies).
