And you are the most insensitive individual that I have encountered in a long time. Everything that does not directly hit you is not worth considering?

Unsound Unsound:
eureka eureka:
The thing is, Pluggy, that it is a war on Canadianism.

And this, my friends, is the Liberal disease in Canada. There is no room in their minds for the idea that other people could have different ideas than them of what Canada is, or should be.

To be perfectly honest, I would likely fall within the ideological spectrum of the liberal party on a lot of issues, but the arrogance of the party is impossible for to want to associate myself with. I'm a reasonable enough person to realize that not everyone who disagrees with me about policies is actually evil.

I think a lot of the partisan hacks we get around here need to remind themselves that as much as we might disagree with what other people think is best for our country, the vast majority of us, do actually want what's best for this country.


Sorry, Unsound, but when you post tripe like that, you're no better than the partisan hacks you deride.

To equate Liberalism (or any political viewpoint IMHO) with a disease is basically an attempt at demonizing them and I think, pretty vile. It not only demeans people with very real diseases, but also makes a mockery of the point you are trying to make, especially when you later talk about not thinking people who disagree with are are actually evil. IMO when you equate a person's political view with disease, it sounds to me like you ARE calling them evil.

There is no "Liberal disease" in Canada any more than there is a "Conservative Disease". Although, if one was to base disease based on your definition here, conservatives are just as guilty of pushing their own narrow vision of Canada - at least from the POV of those left of centre.

Fail, serious fail.

it's not the party that made him a creep. He just happened to be a creep who joined their party.

I get the impression that this partisan "disease" appears more egregious on the left side of the spectrum because the Liberal Party was effectively THE ruling party for much of the past century. Hence, it comes as no surprise that more (how shall I say it?) ideological elements equate their values with "Canadian" values and any dissenting opinion is therefore only worthy of contempt. The inverse is true for the Reform elements of the Conservative Party but it annoys me less because it doesn't sound like sour grapes and self-pity.

Would that be a fairer assessment? It's sour grapes because the (quote)Reformacons(unquote) are united and in power while the Left in this country are divided and clinging to anything that remotely sounds like a scandal. Just like the Right over a decade ago.

If Unsound had written Liberal egotism instead of disease, then I'd agree, but as written, his post sounds like nothing less than a partisan attempt to demonize Liberals, which totally undermines his own statement that "not everyone who disagrees with me about policies is actually evil."

When Eureka posts something equally offensive, he is grilled, insulted and harassed for pages and pages, but everyone else here has been totally silent when someone from a conservative background said something just as offensive.

I think your interpretation of Unsound might be too extreme. I would bet he'd agree that there's a conservative disease, or sense that they are the true Canadians, as well. I don't think he's saying all Liberals or liberals have that disease, just the Kool Aid drinkers. I bet in his last paragraph he was addressing the right as much as the middle.

Guess I should let him speak for himself, but I didn't read what he wrote with the same interpretation as he did.

PimpBrewski123 PimpBrewski123:
Tory Radicalism - huh, say what !

There were no deep cuts, something to please the leftist media. There should have been more in the CBC at least, amongst anything else.


If you have taken anything from what I have said, you would know that it is not about whether the cuts are deep. It is about the targets and the impact.

A quarter inch deep cut on your thigh would be a treatable nuisance: on your jugular it would be fatal.

That is apart from whether cuts are necessary at all and whether a stimulative programme would not be far more beneficial.


I love to beat up the Reformacons as much as the next guy, but what cuts do you think were to the jugular?

I don't think it's a fail at all, here's why:

During the past few elections, we've been reminded by Liberals all over Canada and the Liberal Party that Canada was "built on Liberal values".

"Canadian values are Liberal values" and insinuating those who support other parties don't support Canadian values; or values in general.

To be Canadian is to be Liberal all others don't support the betterment of this Country.

So true.

I became sick of the number of times I heard "Canadians want", "Canadian values" from Liberal spokesmen. They spoke to some people and translated that into all people. Rather egotistical, don't you think.

It is a fail, utterly. Liberals, Conservatives, NDP, and Greens all like to tell me what my values should be and that if I don't support their version, I am somehow less of a Canadian. The Liberals get dumped on more because of what Boots alluded to - egotism. The CPC will follow along soon enough as will the NDP, and in fact, I foresee the NDP becoming more annoying as they push themselves forward as the last and best bulwark against the evils of Harper.

I'd compare the Trudeau Liberals and their successors more to the Borg from Star Trek than to a disease. As Locutus once asked, "why do you resist us? we only seek to bring you to perfection." seems to have been the dominant Liberal mindset for the last forty years. That they've had their media arm at the CBC endlessly drum this nonsense into Canadians minds makes it easier to understand why the Liberals and their followers have a Jonestown-level of belief that they, and they alone, are the chosen ones of a golden age.

Although if sheer arrogance and an unswerving belief in their own infallibility can be considered the symptoms of a disease then the Liberals of the past few decades were not to far off from being a mental-sickness version of Typhoid Mary or Patient Zero. Seriously, talk about your classical ultra-narcissism.
