Trump’s Win-Win Summit

A Zero-Sum Game is a situation in which one person or group can win something only by causing another person or group to lose it. It’s a central tenet of the left -wing Progressivist worldview. If someone gets richer, then, in their view, someone else must get poorer. A recent issue of The Economist magazine […]

The Right to Discriminate

To Discriminate means to recognize a distinction between things. I think that even the dimmest among us recognizes that red and green are two different colors and that some people have better voices than others and some people are better athletes than others. So we discriminate when we go to a concert, or an athletic […]

Free Speech and the Left

As you know, John Carpay and the Justice Centre for Constitutional Freedom (JCCF) are in the forefront of fighting back against Progressivist attacks on basic human rights, including attacks on free speech. Free speech used to mean that you could say anything you wanted, provided it didn’t promote or incite violence. Free speech even included […]

Talking or Doing. That Essential Difference between Left and Right.

I have long maintained – because the evidence has been overwhelming for a long time – that the Left is focused on talking about Progress; implementing “Progressive” legislation, and then not worrying much about the unintended consequences. For instance, the magical $15 an hour minimum wage is a huge barrier to getting that first-time job, […]

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, […]

The Year That Winter Died

The phenomenon known as, “A Canadian Winter”, died, six years ago, during the mild winter of 2011-2012.
Well, maybe not!

Telling Stories You Need To Hear

For a very long time I have believed that there’s a need for an alternative to mainstream media. The Marxist/Socialist Project begun in the 1930s, which was literally called: “The Long Slow March Through the Institutions of the West”, has been largely successful. Universities, and through them the teaching profession, the legal profession, most of […]

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 […]

Cancel My Subscription

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 […]
