To the creators of wealth

I had a different blog prepared for this week, but then a friend of mine sent me a link. It’s to a speech that Rex Murphy gave recently at the Vancouver Resource Investment Conference. Now you’re all well aware that I am an admirer of Rex Murphy, and on social media I’ve often linked to […]

It’s Barack Obama, or Reality

For those who like to be informed, there are a couple of really big events coming up in the next few weeks in Calgary. The first event is the Things that Matter Conference, February 8 and 9 at the Best Western, Port O’ Call. Sponsored by the Essentials of Freedom organization, it has an incredible […]

The Too Often Quoted, Kristopher Wells

In Alberta, it now seems that every time something comes up regarding an LGBT issue, Kristopher Wells pops up as the go to expert; always against parents, and always on the side of “progress” Let’s look at what Kristopher Wells means by progress. Wells is a professor, and a confidant of Alberta’s Education Minister, David […]

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.

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 […]

The Intellectual Rock Star from Fairview Alberta

I think it was about a year ago that Meritha and I attended a weekend conference put on by the Canadian Taxpayers Federation and their Millennials wing which they call Generation Screwed; as in, the people in power are running up debts and will be leaving us the bill. The keynote speaker was Jordan Peterson, […]

Exposing Lies, and Totalitarianism

Rather than a regular blog this week, I’m going to encourage you to watch the following two, very brief videos. One is by Theresa Ng of Parents for Choice in Education. The other is by John Carpay of the Justice Centre for Constitutional Freedom. Theresa exposes the lie that alternate schools are a financial burden […]

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 […]

Understanding Unemployment Statistics

Until now, it’s been hard to wrap your head around Canada’s Prime Minister, Justin “the budget will balance itself” Trudeau’s understanding of economics. However, my cousin sent me this Bud Abbott and Lou Costello exchange which clearly and brilliantly illustrates how Justin’s thinking works, at least as regards unemployment statistics. For your continuing education, I […]

They’re Embarrassing!

I’ve always readily affirmed that Donald Trump regularly does and says things that are embarrassing, ill considered, and too often detrimental to his own cause. And of course, Canadians, especially those with a full blown case of DTS (Trump Derangement Syndrome) love to jump on these indiscretions and point out what an idiot the Americans […]
