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 […]

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 […]

They’re Embarrassing!

I’ve always readily affirmed that Donald Trump regularly does and says things that are embarrassing, ill considered, and too often detrimental to his own cause. And of course, Canadians, especially those with a full blown case of DTS (Trump Derangement Syndrome) love to jump on these indiscretions and point out what an idiot the Americans […]

Trump Was Right!

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

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 […]

Regarding Omar Khadr

I realize that I have a gift for occasionally making everybody mad, and this may be one of those occasions. As I’ve been able to uncover them, here are the facts. Omar Khadr’s parents were both born elsewhere, his father in Egypt. They met and married in Canada and the children, including Omar, were born […]

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 […]
