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 […]

Fundamental Issues

I’ve spent quite a bit of time thinking about how to approach this blog, but it’s probably best to do it head on, although the subject matter would suggest an approach from behind would be more appropriate. First of all, you really need to read this hilarious column by humorist, Dave Barry. It is one […]

Ever More Disgusting

“The power of language to color one’s view of reality is profound. It is for this reason that linguistic engineering always precedes social engineering — even in medicine.” Professor of social work, Dr. William Brennan In the late 1980s and early 90s I made five, quite extensive, business trips to Africa. I always included some extracurricular […]

The Lie is Bigger than I thought!

A few days ago I published a blog outlining how parents that send their children to private or charter schools are, in fact, subsidizing public schools. So why is the Progressivist Left saying otherwise? Here’s a clue. It’s a quotation from a CBC news article published a year ago, after the Edmonton Public School Board […]

Who is subsidizing whom?

The United Nations Universal Declaration of Human rights, Article 26, Subsection 1 says: “Everyone has the right to education. Education shall be free, at least in the elementary and fundamental stages.” Subsection 3 says: “Parents have a prior right to choose the kind of education that shall be given to their children.” That means that […]

Fighting Hollywood

While Meritha and I have always enjoyed movies, I wouldn’t say we’ve been avid moviegoers. But about two and half years ago, we subscribed to Netflix, and since then we’ve tried to shut down business by about 8 PM, several evenings a week, and watch a movie. It’s great! I mean who can argue with […]
