More Khadr

Last blog I suggested we might need a more balanced look at the Omar Khadr file. I expected to get some negative feedback, and I certainly did. Why did I use a picture of a teenage Khadr? Because he was a teenager when the incident happened. And another: He wasn’t a child soldier under international […]

Regarding Omar Khadr

I realize that I have a gift for occasionally making everybody mad, and this may be one of those occasions. As I’ve been able to uncover them, here are the facts. Omar Khadr’s parents were both born elsewhere, his father in Egypt. They met and married in Canada and the children, including Omar, were born […]

Restoring Moderation

There’s been a lot of talk lately about the need for a moderate conservatism. I agree. Progressivist Conservatives often tell us that they are fiscally conservative but socially progressive, in other words, they are models of moderation. What it really seems to mean in practice is that you must timidly support every  social initiative of […]

Fighting for Alberta’s Kids

Meritha and I recently attended a Conference on the Family in Medicine Hat, Alberta. The three featured speakers were Theresa Ng, a mom and teacher who blogs at Informed Albertans; Donna Trimble, executive director of Parents for Choice in Education and John Carpay of Justice Centre for Constitutional Freedoms , JCCF. These are three excellent […]

Canada is Marching On. Glory Glory Hallelujah!

For the past 20 years global temperatures have not risen significantly. Neither have they fallen much; they have “plateaued.” But based on the increase in CO2 levels, computer models said that temperatures should have kept rising. Climate change alarmists insist that they have kept rising, or at least stayed high enough to keep setting some […]

Alberta’s Porn Pushing Politicians

Dear friends Sad to say, but the saga of Alberta’s porn-pushing government continues. As most of you probably know, for several months our children from kindergarten to grade 12 were provided links to explicit, how to do every kind of sex imaginable – some unimaginable – sites, through our government financed, and promoted, Gay Straight […]

John Robson and Rolls Royce and the pursuit of Excellence

From time to time we’re going to feature people that I know, that are doing the work, and who deserve our support. John Robson is one of those people.

Response to Randall

Over the past few weeks I’ve published one blog entitled:Who is Subsidizing Whom?, and another entitled Stop Subsidizing Public Schools! Unsurprisingly, I got some feedback, both positive and negative. One source of negative feedback was Randall. Full disclosure; Randall is my cousin and our worldviews are different, so we spar from the perspectives of Socialism […]

Stop Subsidizing Public Schools!

In an interview with CBC News, Duncan Kenney, the executive director of Progress Alberta made the following statements: “We subsidize our private schools more than every other province in the country.” He also said: “We have 15 elite private schools in Calgary collectively soaking up more than $30 million annually in public subsidies.” Unfortunately, both […]

Eye-witnessed Accounts

I very rarely write directly about religion, or more specifically, my Christian faith. Religion is not the focus of my blog, even less is it the focus of the Let’s Do It Ourselves online community. LDIO™ has members that are Christians, Sikhs, Agnostics, and Atheists. LDIO™ members simply observe that government is too big; that […]
