So, what's the thrust here? I'm not allowed to discuss Progressivism on "your" thread?



I've put more salient content onto that thread then you've put here.

That would be because I don't care about your thread. I have nothing to add to the anti-progressive movement, and apparently neither does anyone else for that matter. About 95% of the posts here are all from you. Great conversation.

It's not my thread. It's an open thread where anybody can come along & contribute to the actual topic, something you've been unable to do thus far.

At the same time, you're drawn to it, like moths to the light. Welcome to enlightenment, my friend...

Despite this fact, a number of CFP's. And you talk about my manners...

Don't see many disagreeing. Do you?

Again, just because there's no response doesn't mean there aren't people nodding tacitly in the wings. There's been nearly 900 views todate. Somebody's reading. Ain't all mine.

Yeah, pretty one-sided, huh? Just like trying to have a factual conversation with you...

People view commercials whether they want to or not. Doesn't mean they're paying attention or agreeing with the message.

And yes, it's your own thread. You're pretty much the only one who writes here, hence the term "echo chamber" another ehMacer used to describe it. Anyway, have fun. I'm looking for better conversation.

Funny, I don't watch commercials.

In addition, your analogy fails right out of the gate. In order to view the contents of this thread, you actually have to click on it, thereby showing some interest. It's not like it's broadcast to everybody who visits ehMac.

Call it what you like, I don't care. If you think that calling a particular thread, any thread, some pejorative term is going to offend me, once again, you're way off the mark.

Thread participation & thread views has never been very high on my priority list. I pay attention to them to prove guys like you wrong but that's where it ends.

Well, let's look at the next shiny example of what happens to science when Progressivism hits it. Well worth the read. BTW, this is what $400,000 gets you these days...

Let's Go On a Science Adventure Together

Glaciers, gender, and science

A feminist glaciology framework for global environmental change research

Abstract

Glaciers are key icons of climate change and global environmental change. However, the relationships among gender, science, and glaciers – particularly related to epistemological questions about the production of glaciological knowledge – remain understudied. This paper thus proposes a feminist glaciology framework with four key components: 1) knowledge producers; (2) gendered science and knowledge; (3) systems of scientific domination; and (4) alternative representations of glaciers. Merging feminist postcolonial science studies and feminist political ecology, the feminist glaciology framework generates robust analysis of gender, power, and epistemologies in dynamic social-ecological systems, thereby leading to more just and equitable science and human-ice interactions.
Emphasis from the link.

Say what?

Further:

Quote:
This grant was provided by the National Science Foundation -- yet in that last paragraph, these people admit they're not going to be talking about the science of actual glaciology but of post-modern criticism about how glaciers are perceieved or talked about.

One can say whatever one likes about post-modernism-- but this crap is definitely not science. So why is over $400,000 intended for actual science going towards this crap?
Good question.

Stunning...

Party leader Broten condemns 'offensive' social media posts from ex-NDP candidate

Quote:
A social media post in which a now-former provincial NDP candidate said the mother of Brad Wall should have taken an abortion pill is being condemned by NDP Leader Cam Broten.
I jes' luvs it when their true colours come out...

NDP drops two more candidates for online posts, bringing total to four this week

Quote:
After the ousting of two more Saskatchewan NDP candidates by leader Cam Broten — bringing the number of casualties this week to four — at least one is still vowing that the election isn’t yet over for him.

At a hastily called news conference in Saskatoon on Saturday, Broten also told assembled media that he has relieved provincial campaign manager Frank Quennell of his duties.

“I was deeply disappointed … It’s clear there was a mistake. Proper vetting (of candidates) did not occur,” Broten said of Saturday’s unprecedented turn of events in a Saskatchewan political campaign.
More:

Quote:
Broten refused to release the material in question that prompted these latest candidates to be dropped. He also refused to reveal the nature of the posts or other online activity.

“That line was crossed. I don’t think we need to get into those details,”
Broten said. “I’ve made the decision to dismiss them.”
M'bold.

On the contrary, I think it's very important...

And, now, from the Departments of Patriarchy or Continuously Offended Feminists (I'm not sure which), sexist crosswalk signals!

The Glow of the Patriarchy

Quote:
Yarra Council announced yesterday the silhouette of a woman would be installed at a new pedestrian crossing in Richmond. Greens Councillor Misha Coleman said the initiative was a “unique and rare” way to display gender equity and she would like to see Yarra known for its ‘green lady’ signals. “I’m a mother of two young children and we always talk about waiting for the ‘green man’,” Councillor Coleman said. “From when kids are young enough to walk they are given an instruction by a man and it has never occurred to any of us that that is inherently so biased.”
The suitably empowering and bias-free signal can be beheld here. Apparently, it depicts Mary Rogers, the second woman in Australia elected to local government, circa 1920. And clearly it’s a vast improvement over the heinously oppressive stick figure previously in use, and which no doubt crushed the spirits of small girls across Australia and steered them towards lives of grinding gender conformity.
Italics from the link, m'bold.

(h/t SDA)

Only a guy who haunts union halls would think that a journeyman electrician needs specialized training to install solar panels...

Oilsands workers call on Alberta government to retrain electricians as solar installation specialists

Quote:
A company called Iron & Earth is asking the provincial government to help support its Solar Skills campaign, a project that aims to train 1,000 electricians from the oilsands sector to install solar panels on 100 public buildings, making their skills marketable across the energy sector.

“Now is definitely the time to be launching this organization,” said Iron & Earth founder Lliam Hildebrand, who came up with the idea during lunchtime discussions with fellow oil workers who felt oil and gas tradespeople could become the workforce behind Alberta’s renewable energy sector.

“My dream is that one day I’ll be able to go to my union hall and have a renewable energy job to choose from.”
Further:

Quote:
Josehp Bascu, director at Iron & Earth, said the goal isn’t to transition from oil and gas, but to optimize the labour potential of tradespeople in all areas of energy production.
Yeah, with taxpayer funded gov't make work projects that'll end in a matter of months, leaving everybody back at square one, poorer for the experience.

Lliam Hildebrand, Lliam Hildebrand, that sounds so familiar...

See 8th in list of cast. Notice also who the writer is. If that doesn't set off warning bells, you are woefully uninformed...
