You may not like certain particular facts but applying derogatory labels to those who point out such facts greatly undermines your cause, which in this case seems to be the glorification of anyone whose math skills are as weak or weaker than your own.

If you do not see the racism in this statement, you are blind. But feel good about yourself, Don, because you are among many other racists who think as you do.
So eMacMan gets it and understands the term correctly. The teacher fails the exam as eMacMan so correctly pointed out. Scary for one who is charged with educating Alberta students.

You are an idiot, eMacMan. Just because you donít understand a mathematical concept does not mean you are right. Didnít Jagmeet just get elected in a byelection? There goes the unelectability argument. The math would seem to indicate that the one with the greatest number of votes wins the seat.

Don, you are an idiot as well if you think youíre brand of racism is even remotely acceptable in todayís world. Whether a person wears a turban or not is only an issue for fellow racists like yourself. For the rest of us, it doesnít matter. Your only hope is that there are still enough fellow racists who think the way you do. And there probably are, especially in Alberta.

Winning a seat in a largely multicultural riding in BC is very different from what residents of other regions of the country consider to be 'Canadian', but ... Aw to hell with it. Freddie knows all and will be proven right in October and the NDP will triumph.

For now, his name calling when he is losing a debate continues, albeit tamed down slightly from past nastiness.

And right on que Freddie perfectly illustrates my point further undermining himself in the process.

Since we were talking about math skills or the lack thereof, an intelligent response would have foregone the again inappropriate labeling, in favour of an attempt to layout how your hero will pay to implement his various pricey policies. Of course he can't and you can't hence my reference to mathematical incompetence.

NDP voters would elect a fencepost if it was running.

When did I say the NDP will triumph? I am simply calling you out for your racist comment. And it appears Iíve hit a nerve.

If youíre going to make fun of me and my ďmath skillsĒ (repeatedly, I might add), then I get to return fire by calling you an idiot. Karma, buddy.

I love my province. Thatís why I fear what the UCP is planning to do to it. And with good reason, having lived through the Klein years.
