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 […]

In the First Place

Last week I blogged about the differences, as I see them, between left and right. The next day I received my copy of Imprimis, a monthly publication of Hillsdale College. It features an article by the college President, Dr. Larry P Arnn, entitled: A More American Conservatism. This week I was going to publish some […]

C – O – 2 – is – good – for – you!

IWUZ reading the Economist Magazine  and was startled to see an article admitting that increases in atmospheric CO2 levels are causing a massive increase in plant growth around the world. Since 1982, an area double the size of the United States has begun to turn green. Why? Well, it’s partly because some colder areas have […]

Government Holds the Gun.

A sub headline in today’s National Post says: “Montréal cabbies declare open season on the ride-sharing service.” Of course they’re talking about UBER, the app driven ridesharing service which is proving more than a little disruptive to the taxi industry. How it works is that you download the UBER app, and then just use your […]

Who is Bill Six?

Bill Six? That’s a question that a lot of city dwellers might not be able to answer. But actually, it’s an NDP government piece of legislation called Bill 6, and it’s clear that what it means to the agricultural community that it’s aimed at, is a question that the government can’t answer either. The NDP says that its purpose is […]

Totalitarian Bureaucrats are at it again!

In a country like Canada that not only was founded on the principles of freedom, but whose young men and women fought and shed blood to defend those principles, it is almost inconceivable that 21st century totalitarians feel they have the right to stifle freedom of speech and assembly. It doesn’t matter if you’re a […]

The Liberal Legacy or déjà vu all over again

The last blog was about how the NDP’s socialist ideology works in practice, rather than in theory. It doesn’t, at least not for young people or for job creating entrepreneurs. But for bureaucrats and the unions, it’s Fat City! This blog is in video at https://youtu.be/oJc3txLOHyU But what about the Liberals? In my lifetime I’ve lived […]

Socialism doesn’t Work.

We’re in the final days of a very important federal election campaign, and we need to get this one right. Maybe it’s because of my age, but I’m convinced it’s usually a good idea to look back, before moving forward. Thomas Mulcair and the new Democrats certainly make a point of looking back to Saskatchewan’s […]

Socialism Observed I

August 29, 2015 When Albertans in Calgary Foothills go to the polls this Thursday, September 3, Alberta will have had four months of NDP, or, socialist government. As Dr. Phil puts it: “How’s that workin for ya?” ** Americans reading this need  to reflect on eight years of economic and diplomatic chaos, and then start […]

To vaccinate, or not to vaccinate, that is the question….

July 30, 2015 Flu season is coming up in a few months; governments are stockpiling vaccine, and many of us are deciding whether or not to get our flu shots. Hamlet’s, “To be or not to be” is unquestionably a more portentous decision than whether or not to get a flu shot, but you wouldn’t […]
