    After that came out they quickly tried to squash the story saying they had spent everything. Then magically came up with 3.2B.

I am of course fiscally conservative leaning but not hard leaning. We pay a lot of taxes to our Gov’ts (and not just income tax). When is tax free day on average now? Middle of June? So we’re all spending the first half of the year to pay the Gov’t and the rest to pay ourselves.

    Can you imagine if she’d won and had gone on a spending spree? Where would we be now with all the money that has unexpectedly been needed due to Covid? You can’t strip the pantry bare when you should have something for a rainy day.

    That is the funniest thing. This guy and his brother were crying for 4 years at Town Council . . . Voting against EVERYTHING . . .

    The gist of it is that when powerful women get angry, they get shrill. So it's gender specific - you rarely hear of a male's speech described like that.

    As said above, I don't agree with it, but it's a popular take.
    I get it - like if he described her criticisms as "nagging." Not sure I think it was meant to be sexist but it definitely made Ford sound thin skinned and dismissive.

    Opposite could be that she has taken so much crap for so long (I'm sure most successful women can say the same) that she is just calling chit out now for the hell of it. It's not like there hasn't been a day of reckoning coming for some time, and the last 2 years should have shown that.

    I was thinking something easier like 'stop giving me so many reasons to complain'.

    At any rate, I don't think anyone here is charging him with sexism.

    I'm surprised he hasn't been sued, some of the statements he has made are borderline slander. Calling people criminals and such, without a shred of evidence to support it.

    I understand the need to be critical while being part of the official opposition, but the delivery of said criticism could be much improved.
