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 […]

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 […]

Michael Moore Bombs His Buddies

As you would expect, radical environmentalist, Michael Moore’s latest documentary, The Planet of the Humans is all over the news lately. Actually, not so much, and here’s why. Moore and his associate Jeff Gibbs are lifelong, left-wing environmental extremists of the ‘Human burning of fossil fuels is causing atmospheric CO2 levels to increase, and that’s […]

LESLYN LEWIS. Remember that name.

For those of you that follow me on Facebook and Twitter and in my IWUZ.ME blogs, I don’t think it’s a surprise for me to tell you that I’m a social conservative. But I’m a moderate social conservative. I do believe in traditional marriage and I believe that it was breathtakingly presumptuous for Progressivists to […]

The Art of the Sacrifice

In previous blogs and social media posts I have stated my belief that Canada cannot be fixed, and that the path to a better future for our descendants is for Alberta and Saskatchewan to leave Canada and form their own nation. That will take sacrifice. Many have agreed, but as expected, some  have questioned my […]

HOT! HOT! HOT!

Friday, August 10 was HOT in Calgary. In fact it was 36.4 Celsius hot. For the unconverted, that’s 97.5 Fahrenheit hot. It broke the previous all-time record of 36.1 Celsius set in 1919, and again in 1933. By a whopping 3/10 of a degree. Take that you deniers! Now I have a phrase that I […]

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, […]

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 […]

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 […]

O’Leary would be a Loser

Last week’s blog was entitled: “O’Leary isn’t Trump” and I linked to an interview I did for Poletical. I briefly made the case that I didn’t think Kevin O’Leary could win government as leader of the Conservative Party of Canada. Some disagreed with me so here’s a more complete list of the reasons I believe […]
