Political Polls: What a Joke!

Political Polls: What a Joke!

Thomas Jefferson opined that democracy would only work if the electorate were educated and informed.  Based on poll results in both Canada and the United States, democracy in both countries simply does not work. Everyone is quick to give their opinion, but few...
Our Sheep-like Responses to Government Policies

Our Sheep-like Responses to Government Policies

I live in Calgary, Alberta, a city which I suspect is similar to other Canadian cities in that our civic affairs are governed by City Aldermen or Alderwomen, or for the politically correct, just plain Councillors.  Where these people come from is a mystery to me,...

Politically Incorrect Thoughts

Politically Incorrect Thoughts

This blog will definitely not be embraced by the rabid, politically correct, left lib crazies who have hijacked our news outlets and most political parties, not just the Liberal Party.  The Conservatives, too gutless to take a strong position on virtually any,...
The Canadian Broadcasting Corporation: What a waste, what a scam!

The Canadian Broadcasting Corporation: What a waste, what a scam!

For as long as I can remember, I have been troubled by the very existence of the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation (the CBC).  With the exception of Hockey Night in Canada, there was nothing in their programming schedule that had any appeal to me.  “B” AND...
