  2. He has the vibe of a guy who is dejected and checked out. Pretty clear they won't run him in the election next year, they may be timing his resignation closer to the election so the new leader doesn't get blamed for any of the mess in his wake. Maybe a Fall or even Spring 2025 Liberal leadership race. If I were a Liberal I definitely wouldn't put my hat in if I had any serious ambitions.

  3. Sigh. He really inspires a sense of confidence these days. I feel so good knowing our leadership is in the hands of this great thinker. Well.. he can find his way off the stage so i suppose there' that Once again he's out there trying to divide people. He wants to shatter canada into as many small pieces as possible and have them fight for his amusement and for votes. He has no business wading into this fight other than he things if he can make one group of people hate another group that somehow he'll win the next election, and he doesnt' care if it permanently harms canada

  4. #Truth The real story here is how the left thinks women that are housewives are worth less than women that have careers. They look down on them. They despise them. Anyone that would glorify them must be attacked.

  5. Holy crap. It is you guys who are the ones demeaning women here. This is precisely why we need people like Butker to stand up for women who are Homemakers because people like you demean them. Listen man, you have made your point here. You are the one demeaning women, not Butker. You are the one saying women are less if they are Homemakers. This is exactly why Butker said what he did, because there are people like you out there who think less of women who choose to stay home to invest in their family.

  7. Well the thing is, what this guy has in his life is a loving wife, a great family, a fantastic home that he feels is amazing, and he works hard to provide and do his job in the equation and he and a lot of people like him have been told that all of this is wrong. And he's looking at what he has and thinking that it's actually pretty fantastic in his opinion. He very clearly dearly loves his wife, he broke up on stage talking about her. He obviously Loves the idea of fatherhood and of being a man that cares for his family And it's pretty clear that he's sick of being told that he's some sort of evil person for allowing his wife to live like that. And he's got a point. It's a perfectly wonderful life to live for many people. A lot of women like that and a lot of men like that. And kids are raised happier and healthier like that.

  9. Holy shit. Well we know who the real sexist is here again. There you have it folks - women's work in the home to raise families is worthless. It's so easy anyone could do it apperently. Tonnes of time for the lady to watch her stories on tv and eat bon bons. r The left is nothing but bigots and misogynists these days. How Much Is a Homemaker Worth? (investopedia.com) According to 2019 data from Salary.com, if you are a stay-at-home parent and paid for your services, you would be looking at a median annual salary of $178,201.1 Why? Because many stay-at-home parents work around the clock. If you have young children, work can often mean nighttime feedings, greeting early morning risers, and late-night meal prep. In addition, a stay-at-home parent wears many hats and must employ many skills to be a tutor, negotiator, nurse, party planner, and chef, for starters. KEY TAKEAWAYS A stay-at-home parent performs various jobs all under the title of the homemaker. According to the Pew Research Center, roughly one in five U.S. adults are stay-at-home parents.2 Pew Research Center. "Stay-at-Home Moms and Dads Account for About One-in-Five U.S. Parents." Stay-at-home parents often act as chauffeurs, chefs, nannies, tutors, and housecleaners. The discussion of whether or not to pay a stipend to stay-at-home parents is ongoing in American politics. During the global pandemic, lockdowns left millions working remotely from home, and people became aware of what it is like to be a stay-at-home parent.3

  12. For the win. And this is what all the left wing arguments boil down to. "I'm not saying women can't choose to be home makers, what i'm saying is they are clearly lesser sub-people if they do and we should look down on them". THe left is all about a woman's right to chose - IF they make a choice they approve of. .Otherwise, eff the b*tch.

  13. No lie, here you are again: "I'm not demeaning women." Next Paragraph "I think less of equally capable people who don't have careers because they are literally doing less." No, we can see exactly what you profess here publically, which is far worse than anything Butker said. I don't have to ponder a hypothetical with you. You are doing it right now.

  16. Stop lying. I'm not demeaning women. What I say applies to any stay at home parent. I think less of equally capable people who don't have careers because they are literally doing less. It doesn't mean I'd be rude to them or disrespect them or treat them poorly. And I damn sure would get up on stage at the SAHP convention and tell them they'd all been lied to and were wasting their time. Note the difference.

  18. As someone involved in the computer scene as long as Bill Gates and founder of the first Internet access in this part of BC, it absolutely infuriates me to see the levels of incompetence demonstrated by both govt and large traditional business in those areas. The BS with ArriveCan was inevitable. From large Hotels that paid #35,000 for a website than nowhere stated their phone number or street address to small shops asking me to make them a site but won't even provide a summary of WTF they do or why anyone should consider them, to CRA websites that need a 'secret code' they send by snail mail (when they get around to it) to other govt sites that link to 404 pages or back to themselves.... arrrrgghhhh! Worked for an agency that tied into govt sites and required 2 or 3 hours of security mods on IE6, worked perfectly fine with FFox but you weren't "allowed" to use FFox or a Mac... aaaiiieee! Or custom code stuff some techie wrote, they decided they didn't want to pay his increasing rates and no one else could alter. No one thought what happens if the coder dies or goes out of business?

  19. Because the stuff you’re trying to explain is nonsense Yeah, that’s literally the OPPOSITE of a micromanager. It shows he’s out of touch and doesn’t know or care about what is going on in his Minister’s Departments OMG. Those once-per election Mandate Letters are something every government in every party does, you know that right? It just a letter that spells out a t a high level what their priorities are. The only thing different about JT is that unlike others he made his letters public…again part of the theatre. Besides only a fool would think JT giving someone one letter upon hire and then barely ever speaking to or inquiring about their work again and being “incurious” “proves” he’s in charge. Lol no it is literally the definition of someone who is not in charge.He’s the boss in name only. Gerald Butts resigned 5 years ago. He may still be a big mover and shaker in the party somehow through private relationships, I don’t know. Competent people make mistakes and bad policies all the time. How many rockets did NASA crash and burn before figuring out how to achieve space flight? A lot. How many successful business and political leaders had ideas that failed before and after achieving success? Most of them. I didn’t say the Liberal brain trust’s policies were good ones or successful ones, all policies are compromises between different internal and external groups and competing interests and many policies that fail are sound on paper but impractical in the real world. It’s quite clear this stuff doesn’t come from someone as vapid and disinterested as JT himself. There is a whole ecosystem of progressive policymakers thought leaders etc in politics, academia and elsewhere in society, all influencing and accessing different levels of government in different ways: as lobbyists, advisors, as government employees, and as people who otherwise influence these groups through books, speeches, advocacy etc. I know as a conservative you NEED to believe that the liberal-du-jour is the antichrist and the conservative-du-jour is the messiah himself, every election it's the same, it’s never been different and it never will be. Messianic hero worship of the current Dear Leader is an inherent feature of conservatism, and accordingly demonization of the hated rival is also. But this time, Trudeau is not the evil mastermind you make him out to be, he’s the vapid spokesmodel.

  20. They should throw someone in as leader who is on the brink of retirement and would be happy to have the PM title on the resume for a few months. Of course the decent way for Trudeau to end his PM role play is to go down with his ship as PM in the next election. If he did so, it wouldn’t be out of honour but pride, because he thinks he can win the election.

  21. Of course it's not a full time job. That's silly. Perhaps it once was, but we don't hunt and gather anymore. We don't trek down to the crick to do our warshin' and fetch the water. We don't spend all day kneedin' and risin' fresh bread for when Pa comes home from a hard day of chorin'. There is some labor, but it's not skilled labor, and it's a lot more "time" than work. Our housework takes a fraction--a literal fraction--of the time. The actual labor to run a load of laundry and load and unload the dishwasher takes an hour, tops. That's why anyone who wants to can work and raise children just fine. And half of stay-at-home parenting is meeting up with other parents for stroller walks, a stop by the playground, some light shopping and Starbucks before heading home for some doomscrolling. Where it's time to order in because it's been a busy day. And Zeus only knows what SAHPs do when they have school-aged children. If that's all one is good for, they are achieving their potential. For everyone who is capable of more, they are unchallenged, bored, and yes, in a state of atrophy--whether they know it or not. Most do. They'll tell you if you ask.

  22. I dunno, it can’t be as you say and also as per the OP: Trudeau has no apparent interest in the banalities of government, including the management of his cabinet orcaucus. Ministers — senior ministers — report that they rarely talk about their portfolios with their boss. In the 2018 book, Un selfie avec Justin Trudeau, Jocelyn Coulon, a former adviser to Stéphane Dion, said the relationship between prime minister and his then foreign affairs minister was “glacial” and the only private meeting the two men had was when Dion was fired. “The prime minister is a man incurious about the affairs of the world,” Coulon remarked. Competemt people an be pulling his strings while still making policy decisions that haven’t worked out and maybe never would work out, and things may not he great but claims that Canada “is failing so badly” are also exaggerated. We have our share of problems at them moment but these problems are also being faced by peer countries across the west, some of which were decades in the making by multiple levels of government and multiple governing parties. Everyone agrees it’s time to change governments and Poillievre will eventually have his share or problems and bad policies too.

  23. Now hold on… Here we have a guy giving a commencement speech, telling women to stay at home and not have careers. That doesn’t mean the only alternative is that no woman should have children. WTF ever happened to freedom and liberty? If a woman and her husband choose for her to stay and home and raise kids, great! If a woman chooses not to have kids, great! If a woman chooses kids and career, great! Freedom! Liberty! Live your life!

  24. Is your purpose so you can look down on and feel superior to people on election day? Or is it ingrained behaviour from your days of night clubbing? Two threads of a meaningless and ineffective policy? Why not give them a $100 tax credit when they deposit their ballot? That rewards them, encourages people to vote and doesn't punish anyone who chooses not to.

  26. That I don't do. Just so happens that here no one can critique an actual Liberal policy other than claiming Trudeau invented it himself so therefore it's no good. Definitely no one can even suggest an acceptable alternative to any of those policies. I heard of an alternative somewhere: Get rid of the carbon tax on fuel altogether and charge a $5000.00 per litre Carbon Tariff on IC engines over 1 L. That will bring in revenue in lump sums and cut CO2 emissions fast. I also suggested raising the capital gains increase to $500,000 so it would barely affect the middle class. And putting more decision making into the hands of people who USE the products and services rather than bean counters, goody two shoesers and mindless drones. No one else here even tries.

  27. Robertson told The Defender he hopes the ban announced today, “is a sign that investigators are willing to pursue this issue, rather than an indication that they have found an individual/organization they’ll be happy to pin everything on.” I couldn't possibly agree more with "David Robertson, Ph.D." some of the most prominent officials and science institutions in biomedical research funded and promoted these experiments. “Some of those very same officials then consistently misled the public about the possibility that research funded by US agencies may have contributed to the creation of SARS-CoV-2.” Regardless of whether or not this goes anywhere, it does my heart good to see a Dr saying publicly the exact same thing that I've said here 1,000 times, only to be flamed by low-IQ, credulous covid10ts. Even if Fauci believed with all his heart, mind and soul that the covid virus came from the unlikely bat-pangolin-human trio, he still had the moral and ethical obligation to disclose the fact that there was another, possibly more likely source of the virus, that being a lab experiment which Fauci had personally approved funding for - on behalf of American taxpayers - in his capacity as NIH Director, just a stone's throw from the wetmarket. The fact that social media was banning all talk of the BSL4 lab, and that the MSM also chose to hide that from the public, is the epitome of Orwellian. Big Brother just gave us all the mushroom treatment, then forced our youths to take a dangerous/lethal injection that they didn't need at all, and which served literally no purpose whatsoever for the greater good. I'm pretty sure that by the time this is over, I will be asking for a lot of high-ranking people in our public health service to be put to death.

  28. If we actually introduced it it would probably go very well. I say that because they did introduce it there and it's going very well. There are three problems standing in the way of anything like that ever happening. First, the left and all left leaning Canadians have been sold a complete lie that only an absolute 100% public health care should ever even be considered, and anyone who suggests otherwise is basically all the bad things about the Nazis and America rolled into one. So politically it's death for any government to put forward. Secondly is taxes. The federal government introduced this idea for tax reasons. Remember that almost all provinces had Public health care before it was brought in nationally. The idea of doing it nationally was that the federal government would collect tax money and then dish it out per person so that every province would be on the same footing more or less when it came to healthcare funding. That means the feds would tax more and then give the money back. Sound familiar? And the government did tax more and for a short time they gave it back. But nowadays they don't. They give back a much lower portion, they are supposed to be sharing in 50% of the costs. Under Trudeau they dropped to I believe 26 before slightly improving and Trudeau Pockets the extra money. The other issue is unions. They are not going to be excited about this idea at all. So you have three very powerful groups, left-wing Brainwashed voters, the federal government protective of its tax revenue, and unions. All of which will move heaven and earth to avoid this kind of change. It would take a politician with balls of steel and provinces willing to listen to even attempt it. And they would likely get thrown out of government even though it was the right thing to do

  29. One key difference is that Trudeau is simply a spokesmodel for a political establishment. I’d be surprised if he personally influenced much of the policy from his government He is an actor, hired to play a role by the Liberal inner circle. Trump on the other had is no puppet. He is a mad king who rules by decree. The people surrounding him are an ever-evolving mob of sycophants and grifters trying to profit from kissing his ring. Trump’s policies if you can even call them that are an incoherent mashup of half-baked conspiracies, tired hackneyed tropes, and rewards to those who have sufficiently bribed/flattered his ego like Saudis and Conrad Black and Blagojevich

  32. Yes, it should be obvious that women who have families and their own careers are doing more. How is this math difficult for you? The same is true for men. Perpetuating the species is a baseline activity. Contributing something to the species beyond a successive generation is is doing more. Marie Curie changed the world, won a Nobel prize and had two daughters who also went on to make notable contributions to humanity. Acknowledging that some accomplish more than others shouldn't be controversial. Sorry that hurts your feelings.

  33. You just got done making it explicitly clear that women who are homemakers are just doing the baseline. Those are your words: "Breeding and rearing children is the baseline for every animal on the planet. So yes, women who do more are going beyond that." You then go on to say that women who have careers are beyond those without them and still have the same results with family AND they accomplished more: "A mother who has happy, healthy children and a career has accomplished more. That should be obvious." Again these are your words, your words to demean homemakers as less than women with careers. You keep doing it now, saying that Children with two "fully actualized" "whole people" are luckier still. So now you think Homemakers are not fully actualized nor whole. You are here doing everything you falsely accuse Butker of doing.

  34. I think Trump is a better person than Trudeau. At least with Trump you know what you’re getting because he tells you. Trudeau is a phoney. Trump’s policies are relatively good for America. Trudeau’s policies are clearly bad for Canada. I don’t care if Trump fcked Stormy Daniels and gave her money to say nothing about it, especially since she did say a lot about it and made a lot of money doing so. The attacks on Trump are legion and demonstrate how politicized the courts are. I don’t care about January 6 because it’s clear that the Dems tried to keep the police from intervening when any rioting could’ve been headed off. Do I think Trump’s a great guy? No, but I’d rather chat with Trump than Trudeau. The track record speaks for itself: booming economy and no wars.

  37. I just think it's funny how important these polling numbers are...the mediocre support for campus protests, but the fact that the Freedumb Convoy had something like 70% of people opposed to it was irrelevant and not worth discussing for...certain types. 😆 For the record, I think these campus protests (especially in Canada) are useless and incoherent, protesting everything and nothing at the same time.

  39. The 'journalisming' wasn't really the point of the post, it was more the poll (which i made sure the link was in the very first part of what i posted). The article is a decent summary so i posted that instead of the actual poll itself (where i'd have had to write my own commentary to summarize). Don't get me wrong, I didn't post this to "laugh" at trudeau being 'Hated" or the like - for me this whole thing is extremely interesting from a social and political sciences point of view. Whether you say 'hated' or distrusted or whatever term, the fact is that we're seeing a level of 'disapproval' (lets go with that for now) that i don't think we've ever seen, yet he's not stepped down, none of his previously successful tactics are improving his situation at all and in fact he's gone DOWN in the polls since his budget.... The whole thing is extremely interesting, how the people are reacing how the party itself is reacting, and it'll be interesting to see the long term effect. This is almost as interesting as the PC party when mulroney left and campbell got in and all of the crazyness surrounding that, leading to the eventual complete implosion and reduction of the party to two seats. And if there hadn't been the sponsorship scandal and the internal civil war i bet chretien would have won a third term.

He can probably make good progress but while he's probably going to make things a lot better he probably won't be able to make them good that quick.
