A Brilliant Interview!

Dear friends First of all, my apologies for going such a long time between blogs. As many of you know, this September Meritha had a successful Whipple operation for pancreatic cancer, but she still has very serious chemo treatment ahead of her. I’ve had issues this year, also with cancer, (squamous cell carcinoma), and more […]

The Road to Zimbabwe

From Screwtape Letters, C. S. Lewis   A senior devil advising an apprentice on turning people, (and nations) towards Hell. “Indeed, the safest road to Hell is the gradual one–the gentle slope, soft underfoot, without sudden turnings, without milestones, without signposts.” I turned 20 in 1963, just a couple of months before John F. Kennedy was […]

The Pandemic Plagued US Election

If it wasn’t for the pandemic, the US Presidential Election would be a Trump landslide. No, I’m not talking about the Covid-19 pandemic, I’m talking about the Trump Derangement Syndrome pandemic, or TDS. I don’t like Donald Trump, don’t like his personality, his braggadocio, or narcissism. He’s a habitual BS’er although if you don’t have […]

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, […]

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 […]

Donald Trump; the good and the bad.

Most of you who’ve read my blogs know that I don’t suffer from Trump Derangement Syndrome, TDS. Nor do I suffer from its opposite number, Trump Adoration Syndrome, or TAS. I don’t care for Donald Trump’s New York brashness; his oratorical skills are mediocre; and he exaggerates a lot. Of course, Trump can’t hold a […]

How Conservatives Win!

Rather than writing my own blog this week, I’m going to provide a link to an excellent article that should be read by every Albertan, and every Canadian, and every American, and every sentient citizen in the Western world. It examines the stark contrast between the intellectually chaotic and unrealistic world of modern Progressivist policy, […]

Alberta Election: CULTURE

There are two fundamental issues that Albertans must consider before Alberta’s election on April 16; issues about which we must think carefully, courageously, and completely. And when we’re thinking, we always need to start with facts, then think, then allow emotion, and then, speak, or act/vote. The first issue is; where are Alberta (and Western […]

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 […]
