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 […]

Alberta’s Porn Pushing Politicians

Dear friends Sad to say, but the saga of Alberta’s porn-pushing government continues. As most of you probably know, for several months our children from kindergarten to grade 12 were provided links to explicit, how to do every kind of sex imaginable – some unimaginable – sites, through our government financed, and promoted, Gay Straight […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

Left – Right – Left – Right

When discussing politics we often frame the conversation in terms of left and right, progressive and conservative, socialist and capitalist. What do we mean by those terms? It’s important, because unless we more or less agree on the definition of something, there’s no way we can have a meaningful conversation. A friend told me that […]

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 […]

Ignorant, Arrogant and Dangerous

July 24, 2015 Ezra Levant is in trouble again. This time it’s for suggesting that the Alberta Human Rights Commission (AHRC) is “crazy” for ordering Alberta’s engineering profession to lower its standards so that a wannabe Alberta engineer could pass its qualifying test. Apparently a Czech immigrant failed the Alberta engineering exam three times, so […]

Socialism remembered II

I hadn’t planned to do another blog until after the Alberta election, but there’s been such an overwhelming response to SOCIALISM REMEMBERED that I felt that I needed to make a couple of comments today. First of all, a profound thank you to all of those who forwarded the links to this blog by email, […]

Trying to fix health care is stupid??

A few days ago I wrote a blog criticizing the Calgary Herald’s unbalanced coverage of the party leaders in the Alberta election; particularly the fact that the Herald apparently believed the Wildrose had pretty much dropped out of the race. Six or eight of you sent me a note saying you had contacted the Herald, […]
