Racism is Other-ism

Racism, and Racist, are bad words. It’s not so much that they are meant to describe a nasty human trait, but that they are etymologically incorrect. (My wife opined, correctly I believe, that they’re political words.) Every human being is of the same race, that is, the human race, so it follows that the only […]

Calgary’s Insane Bylaw

To North Americans that have kept their minds throughout 50 years of postmodernism, it’s become increasingly clear that many Californians have lost theirs. A couple of legislators in “going broke” California are proposing spending $15 million subsidizing so-called gender transitioning therapy and surgery. Laura Perry is going to testify against the spending. About a decade […]

GID Sports, and other endeavors.

Women’s Sports are being destroyed by political correctness. There is an equitable solution.

A Better Country?

On Canada Day, Paula Simons wrote an article in the Edmonton Journal entitled: “My Canada includes Alberta.” Heartwarming, if it were true. But Alberta’s hurting, and it’s clear that some of our fellow provinces, and, most egregiously, the Canadian government, are deliberately adding to the pain. Ms. Simons trots out the usual arguments. “We are […]

Losing Western Civilization

Meritha and I like Dr. Jordan Peterson, who is, shall we say, an uneasy member of the faculty of the University of Toronto. We also like American radio host, Dennis Prager, who on Prager University produces five-minute videos by extremely well informed and thoughtful people. This conversation between the two of them displays the best […]

Understanding Totalitarianism

Here’s the link to an article I saved from the National Post, September 12, 2012, written by the late, and very excellent, George Jonas. It perfectly encapsulates the view that any non-totalitarian would have; that is, that parents have a “prior right” to decide on all aspects of their children’s education. The “prior right” quote […]

An Important Political Story

There are three candidates running for the United Conservative Party (UCP) nomination in the new Calgary riding of Peigan. One of the candidates is Jeevan Mangat. Another is Tanya Fir whose campaign manager is Craig Chandler, a man who has often been a controversial figure within Alberta conservatism. For the most part I try to […]

Jordan Peterson & the Speech Nazis

The anti-free speech, anti-freedom of assembly Progressivist Left is at it again. The target of their opprobrium is Prof. Jordan Peterson whose original sin was to insist that he would not submit to being ordered, by government, to speak certain words. In saner times he would have been lauded as a free-speech champion. But we’re […]

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 […]
