My resolution for 2018: Spend even more time calling out imbalance and extremism in the traditional and social media, on both sides of the debates. Support balanced media and cancel the rest.   December 28, 2017 National Geographic Magazine, Circulation Department Dear Sir/Mdm. Since I was a child, I’ve have been a reader of National […]

Cool Christians

Recent article in Vice.com. “Meet the woke young people trying to make Christianity cool again.” Apparently, “Cool Christians” totally believe in anthropogenic global warming and climate change orthodoxy, and in human rights and racial equality. Before reading the story, it had never occurred to me that the point of adopting a worldview, like Christianity, or […]

Alberta needs a Moderate!

I don’t think it’s a secret to anyone that I’m a small C conservative who believes that the politics we get result from the culture we create. This blog, and the Let’s Do It Ourselves (LDIO™) online community, are dedicated to fostering a culture in which individual rights are protected, not overrun, by the State; […]

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

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 […]

Trump Was Right!

Trump was right: on Charlottseville, and on North Korea – so far.

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 […]

Stop Feeding the Critters!

I’ve been fortunate enough to travel a bit, mostly on business, and one of my favourite places is Washington DC. I’ve visited the monuments – the Lincoln Memorial is, to use the word appropriately for once, awesome. It takes more insight than I can comprehend to convey what Lincoln did at Gettysburg, using only 270 […]

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 […]
