Battles. Trudeau vs the West, Trump vs Biden

I looked this up. The Prime Minister … “… determines the general direction of Government’s activities ….” So what is the general direction of the Liberal government’s activities under leadership of Justin Trudeau? If you can go by the past five years and the recent throne speech, and his follow-up content-less address to the nation, […]

Signs, Doors, and an Update

“Sign, sign, everywhere a sign Blockin’ out the scenery, breakin’ my mind Do this, don’t do that, can’t you read the sign?”…From the 1971 hit song by the Five Man Electrical Band. Yes, read the sign, but caveat lector, or, let the reader beware. Last Monday, Meritha and I drove out to Priddis, a beautiful […]

Identity Theft, Some Changes at the Reesor’s

Dear friends I apologize that it’s been about three weeks since I’ve published a blog, and it certainly hasn’t been because there has been nothing happening on the political scene. But there have been things happening here as well, that have disrupted our lives, at least temporarily. We experienced an attempt to steal my identity. […]

Black lives matter? Not to BLM.

As I proposed in a previous blog entitled: Racism is Other-ism, I believe that racism, and racist, are very misleading terms and they start us down the wrong path. We are all the same race. A better term is, “Other-ism”, looking at people of “other” ethnicity,  tribe, gender, caste, profession; whatever “other” that we can […]

Learning from the Left!?

Meritha (my wife) and I often get into political discussions, and a recent morning was no exception. How is it that the Left can undertake projects – some of them certifiably insane – and are successful, while conservatives see things that need to be done, or more often, undone, but can’t succeed? Conclusion? Leftist culture […]

The Myopically Progressivist Danielle Smith.

Let me say right up front, that having listened to dozens of US and Canadian radio talk show hosts, I think that QR77’s Danielle Smith is one of the best in North America. But she still is plagued by some massive blind spots of the type that led her, as Wildrose Party leader, to cross […]

Racism is Other-ism

Racism, and Racist, are bad words. It’s not so much that they are meant to describe a nasty human trait, but that they are etymologically incorrect. (My wife opined, correctly I believe, that they’re political words.) Every human being is of the same race, that is, the human race, so it follows that the only […]

Transformative Politician Needed. One Is Available!

Once in a lifetime, perhaps only once in two or three lifetimes, a transformative politician comes along and sets a country in a new direction. Margaret Thatcher comes to mind. She became British Prime Minister in 1979 when the nation was in social disarray, and economic peril, and had sunk from a leading position during […]

Rebranding Conservatism

Conservatism and the Conservative Party are in desperate need of re-branding. Former leftists, and “undecideds” have told me that the common view from outside of the conservative wall is that “Conservatives don’t like immigrants, non-whites, or women with power”. It’s nonsense, but like it or not, conservatism’s political opponents, academia, the media, and conservative apathy, […]

Calgary’s Insane Bylaw

To North Americans that have kept their minds throughout 50 years of postmodernism, it’s become increasingly clear that many Californians have lost theirs. A couple of legislators in “going broke” California are proposing spending $15 million subsidizing so-called gender transitioning therapy and surgery. Laura Perry is going to testify against the spending. About a decade […]
