... like the idea that Trudeau doesn't care about jobs in Alberta.

...or the conspiracy theory nonsense about where he has investments.

You're reading more into it than is there.  It's a way to express profound disagreement with the very idea of something - like the idea that Trudeau doesn't care about jobs in Alberta.

I believe that is the intended purpose of it.  It appears to be used more as a harassment by some people, since they rarely will say WHAT they think is dumb or what they disagree with about what you've said.  Like a drive-by  insult coming from someone with not enough balls to actually face you.  Sir John was given a Dumb rating every single time he posted, no matter what he said.  And it appears that I am the new Sir John.

That's the last I'll say on it, and will continue to ignore the person but it's a weasel way of participating in a discussion forum.

sir Argus seems to be doing ok over yonder where the alt right, xenophobes, trump supporter/Canada trolls hang out. None of what he says gets labelled "dumb" over there. 

This is thread drift though.

Canadian politics have been too boring for a while, finally we can stand ground with the Americans.

Aaah I dunno. I don't think we have racked up anywhere near as many scandals compared to trumpty dumpty.

Srsly ?  You have the president's personal lawyer testifying that they drove around Chicago with him making racist comments.  That he got Cohen to threaten his high school.

Be careful what level of excitement you wish for.

Expressing disagreement with a post can be done by choosing disagree. Choosing dumb is intended to be condescending and insulting. My response to these ratings is to render then meaningless by marking every post by the offending trio as 'dumb'.

I read somewhere that the bulk of Trudeau's trust fund is in SNC-Lavalin shares.  I haven't been able to confirm or deny that information.  But it makes sense to me - why he is more concerned about 9,000 SNC-Lavalin jobs in Quebec than 40,000 lost jobs in Alberta that don't affect his trust fund in any way.

He cares more because 1. Quebec votes much more Liberal than Alberta, and has a big population of votes/MP's, 2. There was a Quebec election around the time, 3. Trudeau is from Quebec and is a Quebec MP(a more minor consideration than the first 2).

I think he still does care about AB jobs though.  I mean he did have the gov buy the pipeline and try to push it through, but was quashed by the courts.

- JWR was repeatedly directly and pointedly asked why she never resigned over her concerns, why she never raised her concerns with the Ethics Commissionaire - she never once answered to this repeated questioning.

I believe she did address the former.  Why would she resign if she did nothing wrong, if she was just doing her job?  She wasn't going to let them beat her down, and she hasn't, despite all sorts of attempts, including demotion & numerous attacks on her character.  She knew they could and might boot her out, and they did, but not without a fight.

As for the latter, it's a legit question why she never raised these ethics concerns internally.  It's also a question of who were these anonymous sources that leaked to the media.  I have to assume it was likely either her or someone around her.

That's why I put it in ''.  She obviously considered it a demotion.

Seems like a widespread consensus that it's considered such.

I don't agree - I use dumb very occasionally.  It isn't meant as an insult.
