Doubtful. Freeland is no slouch in anything.

1. You started the thread - that's your only moderatorProwess!  ;D

2. why not target your delusions of grandeur toward member squiggy and his dipshyte need to tagPostsDumb - how about you put some attention thataway, hey!
1. Correct
2. How come ?  This come: Tagging a post as 'dumb' doesn't tag a PERSON as 'dumb'.  It's the difference between a harangue and an insult, I suppose.

It's hilarious that people keep underestimating her. She's going to be a great Prime Minister one day.

c'mon... Harper used perogyPower 4 times! How soon, how convenient for CONDP members to forget this as they rise up against the powerOfPerogy exercised by PM Trudeau/Liberal government!

forces a confidence vote - now who wants an election... let's see, hey!

So?  That's irrelevant because we want better, and not more of the same.

which you're getting! Harper Conservatives prorogued to avoid a confidence vote - PM Trudeau/Liberals prorogued to reset the government's policy and legislative agenda... the prior 'Throne Speech and related policy', of course, had no mention/reference to COVID-19. And as I said, most pointedly, this perogy forces a confidence vote - so let's just wait and see which parties call for an election! Lets just see!

oh really! Your interpretive powers allow you to read the intent of member squiggy's most indiscriminate tagging, hey! I particularly relish those posts where its clear someone has spent time researching the related subject post - perhaps even crafting a related graphic... only to have the snivelingSnot throw down a dumbTag - a tagging that most certainly is aimed at the originator, not the subject post!

and gravy has flowed once again. It's clear member squiggy takes exception to having his posts similarly tagged 'dumb'... he once again has retaliated to my purposeful tagging his most recent posts as dumb! Member squiggy retaliation that has him similarly dumb tagging all my most recent posts. Apparently the poor lil' phacker has some real thin skin!  ;D

Yup, but it seems mighty convenient that this prorogue comes just when a scandal involving the PM is being investigated.   A week or two delay to get through that might have been better optics, and perhaps even shown him not to be at any fault. 

On the plus side, they did release a bumch of documents just begore heading out.

I suspect JT would not mind an election right now, as his approval rating is relatively high and he currently is a few points ahead of Conservstives.  Returning in a month with a plausible plan to address social supports and the environment might be enough to get him another majority.

Or not; a lot of people are pretty disillusioned with JT so he may still struggle to get reelected if the Conservative candidate can put together a platform that addresses people's concerns around pandemics, finances and the environment

It'll be interesting.

Oh Waldo....    when have I ever complained about my post getting “dumb tagged”?   I’ll save you the research time...   the answer is never.   Stop being a butthurt whiny UNCHARITABLE INSULT REMOVED BY MODERATOR HARDNER..  If you have an issue with tags, convince the moderator to turn them off. 

If you look carefully, you’ll even find some other tags, like “agree”, that I tagged your posts with.  Hint:  it’s the 1 or 2 non-dumb posts you’ve made....

On the plus side, they did release a bunch of documents just before heading out.

and those just released docs reinforce what PM Trudeau/Telford stated in their testimony... that the public service chose, then recommended, WE charity. That, PM Trudeau, did not want WE Charity and pushed back on that initial recommendation; in effect asking for a re-do by the public service. As stated previously in this thread, PM Trudeau had his personal sights set on the preexisting Canada Student Service Corps delivering the program... a group PM Trudeau wanted to flourish/expand.

#pigeonPierre has run out of runway!  ;D Just another fake "scandal" pushed forward by the CPC/Scheer/#pigeonPierre and a most obliging media!

hey buddy, your actions showcase your complaining... for the second time now, you've taken exception to me purposely dumb-tagging all your recent posts. Your exception complaining is to retaliate by dumb tagging all my most recent posts! But sure, you're not complainin'  ;D

you're a dipshyteExtraordinaire... gleefully looking for attention - which the waldo is most willing to oblige. Continue your dumbTagging - I'll continue the same and point out your dipshytery each and every time! Be happy you lilPhacker!

Retaliation?   I’m posting your dumb posts as dumb wherever I see them.  Nothing has changed.  Tag away!  That’s what it’s there for! 

I’m sure if you as JMT nicely, he’ll make the changes you want. 

Or maybe you’ll whine and snivel about being hard done by again and slink away.  Seems only you and Shady do that....   

Tell you what....   here’s an olive branch....   I will not dumb tag your posts anymore....   I will only use the informative  button (sarcastically...  but no one will know this) for any post I would have used dumb on previously.  This will spare your feelings and your butthurt. 

I am willing to do this for you UNCHARITABLE INSULT REMOVED BY MODERATOR HARDNER.

geezaz! You gave it away - how Trumpian of you  ;D you're not too bright, are you?

clearly, going to such trouble with this reply speaks to your sadlil' pitiful self. Hey now - when you pull the dumbTag trigger, do you get a chubby?

and just so you don't get away with making this a one-on-one, other members have also complained about your penchant for dumbTagin' their posts. If nothing else, you're an equal opportunity dipshyte!

Oddly, my leftist friends all seem to think so too.  I'm a little more guarded but I like a few things about her:

1) Came from journalism, not law or academia
2) Doesn't seem to be a silver spoon kid
3) Negotiated very strongly with the US on the new NAFTA

She could be the political unicorn we have been awaiting.  And we all could reunite with the Waldo even... I'm getting wet eyed...
