Me Too, Korean-ized

It’s been just over a year since the “Me Too” movement got it’s start after revelations that Hollywood producer, Harvey Weinstein, was a sexual predator. Since then, dozens of  big names in Hollywood and Washington and on the international stage, have been implicated for misogynistic and piggish behavior towards women. Until exposed, Hollywood’s actresses loved […]

Understanding Totalitarianism

Here’s the link to an article I saved from the National Post, September 12, 2012, written by the late, and very excellent, George Jonas. It perfectly encapsulates the view that any non-totalitarian would have; that is, that parents have a “prior right” to decide on all aspects of their children’s education. The “prior right” quote […]

Hyenas under the Rainbow Flag

I’ve been to Africa several times, and I can tell you that hyenas are not well liked. Hyenas appear cowardly, and they have a weird laughing yap that sounds a bit creepy, and they are reputed to grab children. Probably rare, but it has happened. Which brings me to the title of this blog. I’ll […]

John Carpay and the Rainbow Flag

At a Calgary conference held Saturday, November 10, 2018, John Carpay, founder of the Justice Centre for Constitutional Freedom, made the mistake of putting Nazi and Communist symbols, and the rainbow flag in the same sentence. The left lost its mind.

Trump, Transgender, and the NDP!

Recent issues of The Economist magazine included articles that suggest that they have decided to make some tentative steps back towards responsible journalism. The first was about Donald Trump’s foreign policy, for which they still had plenty of criticism. But after much to-ing and fro-ing, there came this statement. “Mr. Trump’s foreign policy team appears […]

Let’s Talk Pigs

More than enough has been written about the battle over the appointment of the latest US Supreme Court Justice, Brett Kavanaugh. But if you’ll indulge me, I’m going to write just a bit more, mostly for my American readers. And a warning; to say what I need to say requires me to be graphic. Two […]

On Politics and Science

In Alberta Politics: Rachel Notley is really concerned that members of the extremist, anti-immigrant group called Soldiers of Odin (SOO) managed to crash a UCP candidate’s fundraiser at an Edmonton pub. The UCP has repudiated them. I’d say, get concerned when a Soldier of Odin becomes a member of the UCP caucus. Not going to […]

It will Survive!

Australia’s great barrier reef will survive! This astonishingly good news was in a recent article in Bloomberg headlined: Great Barrier Reef “Showing Signs of Recovery.” This just one year after it was declared doomed! To be honest with you, I always thought it would recover and I’ll tell you why. I’ve read enough history related […]

Billions for Nothing

Once again, on Thursday of last week, Albertans got kicked in the teeth by a national institution. A federal court ruled that even after thousands of witnesses had been heard, and hundreds of millions of dollars had been spent on complying with regulations, this was not sufficient “consultation” to allow a pipeline to proceed that […]

Ice Age Coming!?

Last weekend’s Sunday Sun papers had a two-page article saying that heat, drought, and a longer fire season are going to be the new normal for Canada. Maybe for now, but I have research data going back into the early 1800s, and found out that the biggest fire in US history was actually in 1910. […]
