Rush Limbaugh on “sequester” — we’ve heard it all before

Rush Limbaugh speaks from a place a little deeper in the political weeds than most Americans  —  most Americans whom he accurately describes as “the low-information voter population in this country.” But it’s how the anti-progressive political junkies like me feel and have felt for a long time. It goes a long way toward explaining […]

Socialist or fascist? OK, don’t take my word for it.

For years I’ve been trying to reinforce the concept — the fact — that the hard “progressive” Left in North America are best described as a conflation of many of those nasty political doctrinal terms we used to refer to all the time when speaking of our real enemies: socialists, fascists, totalitarians, authoritarians, etc. I’ve […]

Most gov “job-training” cash just pays gov “job-training” staff? Wow! Shocka!

Imagine my surprise when I found that after a U.S. Senator (a Republican  — imagine!) actually bothered to look into how taxpayer dollars are being spent  —  sorry, “invested”  —  by the giant government, the study uncovered waste and idiocy! Senator questions $18B for job training, as study suggests rampant waste, abuse A study commissioned […]

Big Brother to Ban Tanning for Under-18? Bad Request.

Sometimes stories about the government (a.k.a. big brother, nanny-state, big sis, progressives, liberals, totalitarians…) meddling more and more into our lives and removing all semblance of personal responsibility such that we become totally reliant upon the state for our very existence, write themselves. To wit: I swear I didn’t set this up. I simply clicked […]

“Conservative” gov gives Toyota 10s of millions — to maintain massive profits & competitive edge?

Why is the government  —  any government but particularly a “Conservative” government  —  giving our taxpayer cash or what they’re calling “financial  assistance” to a massive, privately-owned car company that sells billions of dollars worth of cars every year and is massively profitable on its own and is at the cutting edge of technology and […]

Sun News anchor raises age-old lib-left canard about Conservative “hidden agenda” and abortion

(UPDATE: Added a related post next day) Well that was fast.  You can still smell the fresh paint at Sun News Network studios, (I’m guessing).  And the liberal-left haven’t even STARTED smearing it to shreds in their intellectually dishonest way (for more information, see Sarah Palin smears, or Fox News smears from the liberals).   But […]

Progressive Liberal-Left Ignatieff: walk through the “red door”!

It freaks me out whenever a left-wing politician speaks (as I watch him on state-owned media, no less) of walking through the big “red door” of government.  Yet that “blue door/red door” gem was among the several he market-tested on his fawning media throngs this morning, moments ago. That was all contained within his package […]

So-Called “Conservatives” INCREASE taxpayer funding of state-owned CBC

They’ve apparently already lost the support of all the progressives in Canada  — the socialists of Jack Layton’s you’ve got to be kidding party  —  and I presume the communists too;  as well as the slightly less socialist Liberals of the arrogant, visiting elitist leader, Michael Ignatieff. So all of the truly overt progressives in […]

Another non-conspiracy theory progressives will hate

I was curious about this crap called “International Women’s Day” that all the media is celebrating on our behalf for the past week. I was going to make a cunical blog entry simply asking the question: why don’t they call THIS a “holiday” as the secular progressives have all tried but failed to do instead […]

Hey here’s another non-conspiracy theory: Women’s Day is a socialist plot!

I was going to make a cynical blog entry simply asking the question: why don’t they call THIS a “holiday,” as all the secular progressives have tried but failed to do in their effort to obliterate Christmas and getting us to avoid actually calling it Christmas, which they so detest. I was curious about this […]

Purolator couriers a government/state-capitalist meme.

Do you know the true extend of state-ownership of businesses which compete against citizens? Who knew Purolator Couriers Ltd was 91% owned by the 100% state-owned Canada Post “Corporation?” If you didn’t know, that’s horrible. But what’s just about as bad is the idea that it’s intentional. Progressive governments, socialists, liberals  —  progressives as a […]

Controlling left-wing vitriol and hate; And in defense of my “use your real name” commenting policy

Two days of reading, watching, listening and writing about the Arizona shooting mayhem, and I’ve almost forgotten about that genius Liberal leader Michael Ignatieff, who’s going on a tour this new year, to “target” (their words!) several Conservative ridings. Betcha he’ll be reloading his unpopular stand on the long gun registry, notwithstanding it making not […]

Liberal Senator dudette sounds like a fascist cow to me

I’ve got the Aerosmith tune (kids, Aerosmith’s a real rock band, with all due respect — hardly any — to the likes of yer P. Diddy and Kanye West and Katy Perry) “Dude Looks Like a Lady” running through my noggin. But this liberal-leftist progressive dame sounds like a fascist, to me. In her liberal-left/progressive […]

After accepting hundreds of mills in tax dollars, the Government Games “broke even” (—wink!)

A small note from the great white north… Wow that’s amazing. British Columbia’s Olympic-sized liberal government’s Vancouver Organizing Committee politburo got all that money from the taxpayers (who really had no money to spend, but whatever), they overspent their initial “budget”, then they asked for more cash from the government (which the government once again […]
