Sometimes, context matters.

The recurring argument: "Hey, Harper prorogued Parliament but so did the Liberals. So what's the big deal?"

You come home from a weekend of hunting, with a deer strapped to the roof of your car. While you're bragging about it in your driveway, I pull out a handgun and blow away your dog in front of you. Hey, you shot an animal, I shot an animal. What's your problem?

Sometimes, context matters.

perfect. After dozens of articles and posts trying to explain that simple point, you manage it in a couple of sentences. But then, you clued in on the importance of using guns and blowing creatures away as a means of relating to the dumb.
