Rex Murphy: Trudeau skips the theme socks for his scheming Khadr apology

Three things mark the Khadr announcement. The government didn’t want to be associated with it. They wanted it done swiftly. And they didn’t want Trudeau on the same continent when the news broke

    This wouldn’t have happened if women weren’t allowed to vote.

    • Sunshine

      I am female and I agree. If anything, there should be a minimum I.Q. level required to vote and this, for everybody.

        Actually, I think an IQ range of 95-125 would be best.
        Not too smart, not too dumb.

          I would settle for not allowing a vote for any who are dependent on government for their livelihood. At least that would put an end to promising the most freebies by politicians. Better would be only those paying income tax at least being able to vote, although my personal preference is that only property owners being allowed to vote. Yeah, I know that will get me a lot of backlash, but I don’t care.

            At the very least you should be a “Taxpayer” in order to have the right to vote.

          • Bataviawillem

            If you take a government check you don’t pay tax.

          • Bataviawillem

            Not a new concept, England’s vote system for the longest time was, you could only vote if you payed tax.
            I think we should go back to that, if you take a government check you can’t vote.

        • Sunshine

          A minimum of 110. Also, people with mental disorders such as Alzheimer should not be allowed to vote.
          When 9/11 occurred in New York City, the next day we saw the face of Osama bin Laden.
          My mom displayed her first signs of Alzheimer that day. She couldn’t understand what all the fuss was about; only a few buildings had fallen. Also, she felt sorry for OBL because he seems like such a nice man.

    Giving Omar Khadr all that money is sure to buy the favor and loyalty of Muslims the world over, right?

    Strange how the most hot political story in Canada this year, is suddenly dropped by the TV networks, Although the paid off CBC has been giving glowing reports on the great success of feminist Trudeau in Europe. Of course they rant that he is a big improvement on the world stage from the awful years of Hitler Harper. And Europe is especially please that Trudeau is throwing money all over the place.

    • Tooth&Claw

      Doesn’t matter if they have dropped it. People are pissed and will remember this, because it’s so, very, very wrong.

  • Alain

    Perhaps the theme socks were replaced with theme panties.

  • Norman_In_New_York

    It will take more than Listerine to get the bad taste out of the public’s mouth.

    • Bernie

      and the Public will not swallow it either!

  • Cat-astrophe

    Man oh man. Omar raked in an even better deal than the clock boy in the states.
    All the clock kid got was to meet Obama.
    Like wow.
