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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

Forgive him, for he was a Democrat

Donald Trump has been in the news a lot lately. (That’s my entry in the understatement of the century contest.) The left, and the mainstream media – yes I know, it’s the same thing – dined out during the election, and still do, on Donald Trump’s past crudeness and vulgarity, and his disrespect for women. […]

It’s a Left-Wing Meltdown! Y’all Come!

I’ll admit it’s been amusing, in a sadistic sort of way, to watch the left-wing meltdown since Donald Trump was elected President of the United States on November 8. First of all, and the US Constitution notwithstanding, they insisted was an illegitimate result because Trump only won the Electoral College, but not the plurality of […]

That Hopey Changey Thing

In a December interview, Michelle Obama bemoaned the upcoming Trump presidency, and, as she saw it, the end of hope. She said: “Hope is necessary. It’s a necessary concept and Barack didn’t just talk about hope because he thought it was just a nice slogan to get votes. He and I and so many believe […]

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 […]

Sandra and Hillary

I expect that I would disagree with Sandra Jansen about most things. I see her as an Elitist Progressive of the first order, and I think the manner of her crossing the floor of the Alberta legislature, from a purportedly Conservative party, straight into the embrace of a committed socialist party, says all you need […]

Elitism and the Elite

I respect Elites. It’s Elitists that I can’t stand.
