Weather actually began before 1980!

Dear friends I subscribe to a New York Times newsletter, and today it’s op-ed writer, David Leonard, had a column on the approaching climate disaster. https://www.nytimes.com/newsletters/2018/01/11/opinion-today?nlid=79801464 Mr. Leonard quoted statistics going all the way back to 1980, 40 years ago, which is probably longer than he’s been alive, so anything happening before that apparently is […]

Cancel My Subscription

My resolution for 2018: Spend even more time calling out imbalance and extremism in the traditional and social media, on both sides of the debates. Support balanced media and cancel the rest.   December 28, 2017 National Geographic Magazine, Circulation Department Dear Sir/Mdm. Since I was a child, I’ve have been a reader of National […]

Please accept …. my apology

Back in the mists of time, 1960 to be exact, or prehistory to Millennials, Brenda Lee had a monster hit called “I’m Sorry”. One of the lines was: “I’m sorry, so sorry; please accept my apology.” With some slight modifications, it could have been the theme song for Canadian governments for the past 20 years or so.

Who Cares?

The media has been gaga for the past week or so, because……. wait for it………. Prince Harry is engaged!! Well I suppose it’s about time; he’s in his 30s after all. But there’s  more!! He’s engaged to a woman “of colour”!!! Here’s the breathless prose used by many of the newspapers that use The Associated […]

Cool Christians

Recent article in Vice.com. “Meet the woke young people trying to make Christianity cool again.” Apparently, “Cool Christians” totally believe in anthropogenic global warming and climate change orthodoxy, and in human rights and racial equality. Before reading the story, it had never occurred to me that the point of adopting a worldview, like Christianity, or […]

Alberta needs a Moderate!

I don’t think it’s a secret to anyone that I’m a small C conservative who believes that the politics we get result from the culture we create. This blog, and the Let’s Do It Ourselves (LDIO™) online community, are dedicated to fostering a culture in which individual rights are protected, not overrun, by the State; […]

Just because you’re a boy doesn’t mean you’re a boy.

“Your genitals don’t make you a boy or a girl.” This ridiclous and completely unscientific nonsense is a direct quote from Planned Parenthood, and it’s exactly the same bizarre propaganda pushed by the LGBTQ activist organization, EGALE, an organization that is dedicated to normalizing virtually every kind of sexual disorder. Astonishingly, EGALE is the organization […]

The First Fifty

50 years ago today, in Moose Jaw Saskatchewan, Meritha and I said: “I do,” “I will,” etc.. And we have. I find it quite remarkable that I’ve been married to the same woman for 50 years; after all, that’s an entire half  century! Of course, the corollary to that is that Meritha has been married […]

Rachels Super-Speech

This past Saturday, Rachel Notley apparently gave a super speech to the faithful, attacking the policies of the United Conservative Party. Let’s get right into the specifics. Rachel accused both Brian Jean and Jason Kenney of: “wanting to go back to the same failed (economic) policies that left us the mess that we are currently […]

Only one choice for Real Conservatives

During the United Conservative Party (UCP) leadership race, I would have preferred to be able to remain neutral. But I can’t. I don’t think it’s a secret to anyone that I’m a small C conservative who believes that the politics we get are a result of the culture we’ve created. This blog and the Let’s […]
