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 […]

We Can Win. We Must Win!

Hello friends Last week I said that I was going to go see Al Gore’s latest disaster fantasy, and report back to you. I will, but later. So far it sounds like the lineups are short. But for the next few weeks I’m going to draw your attention to an issue that’s even more critical […]

Restoring Moderation

There’s been a lot of talk lately about the need for a moderate conservatism. I agree. Progressivist Conservatives often tell us that they are fiscally conservative but socially progressive, in other words, they are models of moderation. What it really seems to mean in practice is that you must timidly support every  social initiative of […]

Fighting for Alberta’s Kids

Meritha and I recently attended a Conference on the Family in Medicine Hat, Alberta. The three featured speakers were Theresa Ng, a mom and teacher who blogs at Informed Albertans; Donna Trimble, executive director of Parents for Choice in Education and John Carpay of Justice Centre for Constitutional Freedoms , JCCF. These are three excellent […]

Canada is Marching On. Glory Glory Hallelujah!

For the past 20 years global temperatures have not risen significantly. Neither have they fallen much; they have “plateaued.” But based on the increase in CO2 levels, computer models said that temperatures should have kept rising. Climate change alarmists insist that they have kept rising, or at least stayed high enough to keep setting some […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]
