O Canada.....What a cabinet.


Recommended Posts

that was my argument ?  I really appreciate you telling me what I was saying [ especially since I didnt say anything!]

I agree. You only posted something that you didn't bother to explicitly tie to any statement.

 

You said nothing, really: only you posted a bunch of statistics which were obviously meant as some kind of rejoinder to what I said, so I replied.

 

But you took no responsibility for taking a position, that is true.

 

 

When ARE you going to say something?

How's that misogyny working out for you?   Lemme take a wild guess here...   you're not happily married and you project your masculine insecurities onto your illusion of submissive Asian women...o

Mysogyny is dislike of women, if I understand the word correctly. I looove women (so no, you don't win a prize); I just know who's to wear the trousers.

 

I don't project my hopes onto what I think Asian women are like. I've had more problems teaching a filipina who is head of the relationship than I've had with Australian girls. At the same time, filipinas do have other qualities that Aussie girls don't.

 

Sorry if I am getting off-topic but several members seemed to think discussing my views should be part of this thread. I don't mind giving an answer for anything I believe.

I wonder what their average age is? I also wonder how much of a promotion their present cabinet positions have been for them?

 

But not enough to look it up right now. 

 

Just wingin' it, I suspect that it is a youthful government, and it will show some of the same faults as South Korea's Uri Party showed after it was voted in in 2004 or so: About 80% of them were first time legislators and it showed. Cabinet positions aren't the same thing as positions in the legislature, I know, but youth (and inexperience) is where you go for brilliance---not reliability.

 

The young are often good at solving the hard problems (except diplomatic ones---they aren't good at understanding contending parties as well as the old are) and "experimenting" on the easy ones----very often disastrously.

 

Time will tell. 

 

They are considered by most here to airheads and empty suits.. .they got 37% of the popular vote. We didn't vote them in, we voted tho old rascals out. Woe is us .

I would expect nothing else from Canadia - possibly the most civilised country in the world....although NZ may give it a fair run for its money.  It also shows how drawing an artificial line on a map can produce two very different results - although everyone loves the "One nation under Canada" jibe.

 

I worked for international software companies for many years (Oracle and Computer Associates) and the blokes closing the bar during international sales conferences were always we Brits, The Scandies, The Antipodeans and, of course, The Canuks, eh?
