My Recent Silversea Experience

My Recent Silversea Experience

In mid-October of this year, my wife, sister-in-law, and I went on a 22-day Western Mediterranean cruise, embarking and returning to Lisbon, Portugal. We were looking forward to cruising on Silversea’s new ship, the Silver Nova. The cruise was billed as a first-class,...

It Is 2023. Something Is Terribly Wrong with Our Society

It Is 2023. Something Is Terribly Wrong with Our Society

It has been a while since I wrote my last blog. The majority of my blogs focus on negative things that concern me, so I was waiting for something uplifting and positive to inspire my next blog.  For example, I could write about things that make me happy. However,...

Events Cry Out for Some Sort of Societal Reset

Events Cry Out for Some Sort of Societal Reset

Myriad events in our world foretell an unhappy ending for humanity.  We are being indoctrinated to accept events and ideas–which had they been advanced but a very few years ago would have been laughed out of existence–and those advocating for this foolishness would,...

Madness Alive and Well in the United States of America

Madness Alive and Well in the United States of America

It amazes me that a poster boy for a “before” WeightWatchers commercial–a not very bright District Attorney–can throw a country into chaos to feed the left-wing, crazy lunatics’ insatiable demands for the blood of those who oppose their silly bugger ideology. While...

The Generational Divide

The Generational Divide

Those born in the first two decades of the twentieth century were members of North America’s greatest generation.  Arguing against that statement is hard, bordering on the impossible.  These folks defeated the evil warmongers in Nazi Germany and Imperial Japan, and...

My Attempt to Define “Woke”

My Attempt to Define “Woke”

The other day my wife Brenda asked me what the word “woke” meant.  She had, like the rest of us, heard the word used too often in both print and electronic media, especially when mainstream media is being criticized for doing their best to justify what to most...

Health Care in Crisis: Why?

Health Care in Crisis: Why?

With a severe shortage of medical staff and long dangerous waits for hospital services—including life-saving operations and emergency care—our Canadian medical system is in turmoil. We are told that there is a chronic shortage of doctors.  That nurses are overworked...

The State of the Union Is in Grave Danger

The State of the Union Is in Grave Danger

Two weeks ago, I watched some of Joe Biden’s State of the Union address.  I only watched part of it because I was switching between his address and the Flames/Minnesota hockey game, which was much more interesting than watching someone try to read off a teleprompter...

Being Politically Incorrect: Am I too old to be flogged?

Being Politically Incorrect: Am I too old to be flogged?

I do not relate to six-foot, five-to-seven-inch-tall young men putting a round ball through a hoop and getting paid tremendous amounts of money for doing so. Given their God-endowed height, dunking a basketball is not that big an accomplishment and certainly not worth...

Mob Justice in a Sick, Woke, Declining Society

Mob Justice in a Sick, Woke, Declining Society

Unlike most people, I actually watched the Derek Chauvin trial.  I practiced law for 35 years, and although I did not act for clients charged with committing criminal offences (except early in my career), I believe my education and background give me more insight into...
