Canada’s liberals are, in fact, dumb bombs

Proving that Canada is far from serious about this war on terror and its own defence and national security, Canada still doesn’t have already years-old, latest generation laser-guided “smart-bomb” technology for its now already aging CF-18 fighter jets, which would enable them to fire ammunition at enemies with pinpoint accuracy and deadly force—something even third-world […]

Columnist Simpson gets many Ds

Mr. D-for-Dummy’s column called “Make that one W and three Ds” by Jefferey Simpson in Tuesday’s Globe and Mail, begins, “U.S. President George W. Bush, who arrived in Canada yesterday, leads a credit-card superpower.  The United States, under his leadership, spends more than it raises in taxes, imports more than it exports, and uses more […]

“Abstinence not a viable option; must fornicate.”

As I often say, so much of the deep liberal-left philosophy and policy initiative and so on revolves around the orgasm.  They will do and say and discuss a thing to death, notably in articles or discussions about sexually-transmitted diseases like AIDS and HPV, and even pregnancy, before they invoke the word “abstinence” (actually, in […]

Report card: “The state is a slow learner - F”

State-run public grade-schools set to compete against private, traditional citizen-run schools? Only in Canada.  This question of mine has been a constant refrain for years:  what kind of government competes against its own citizens for profits, for TV viewers or radio listeners, for train riders, for wine and whiskey consumers, for folks’ car insurance needs, […]

PTBC is “Canadian content”

The state-run CBC pretends it’s all about Canadian programming and culture.  Why then does the official state movie reviewer, Jelena Adzic, use her weekend movie review in the middle of the state “news” on CBC Newsworld (Channel 390 on my dial with other CBC occupying many of the others against my will) to talk about […]

“Sadly, Canada, you’re in the bottom three tonight”

The liberals’ Globe and Mail and their sister, the liberalvision CTV network, have had their polling firm which is called something like The National Committee of Co-opted Liberal-Left Strategery and Compliance with Leftists Trendy ‘Tudes in the Hood Council, do another one of their hideously stupid polls.  It seems to me these are designed only […]

Conservatives can’t fight a war either?

I openly laugh at liberals who drive cars and fly in jets to their vacations in communist Cuba and live in heated homes telling me that “they” (not them, themselves, personally, of course, but you know, “they”) have got to do something about that “man-made global warming” (puff, puff).  In debate, they’ll argue that the […]

Chuck Strahl – Mel Smith Lecture

Editor’s note: This is an abridged copy of a speech given by Chuck Strahl, Conservative Member of Parliament (Chilliwack-Fraser Canyon), to Trinity Western University for their annual Mel Smith Lecture Series.  I liked it very much and asked if I could post an abridged version of it here in this space, and Mr. Strahl obliged. […]

State-run CBC: So vital, and yet so not watched

  CBC is so vital and important, we’re told, and yet it needs to vigorously advertise to compete for viewers  If it’s so crucially necessary for the people, then why do they have to advertise at all whatsoever?  Surely the people know about it and totally rely on it already.  It’s so necessary, you see. […]

Turning Canada conservative means leading them that way

Go Reagan on ’em, in a word. According to the latest Ipsos-Reid poll, the Titanic Grits are making no headway with Liberal Frenchman Stephane Dion at the helm.  Now that the Conservatives have proven they can amply mimic a Liberals’ budget in addition to lots of other key vote-getting nuggets like the liberal-left’s daycare ideas […]

Ignorant, naive Canada still thinks it’s special

Perhaps it’s because Canada is so used to living under the comfy warm blanket of America and their realistic level of defensive security protection and their willingness to defend not just themselves, but apparently most of the world including Canada.  (Does the U.S. send Canada a multi-billion-dollar bill every year?  It should.)  Or maybe we’re […]

Conservatives to provide free food, shelter and clothing for all

In order to come clean with Canadians (owing to their advertised adherence to “values” and “taking personal responsibility”), the federal Conservatives under Prime Minister Stephen Harper admitted today that they’re prepared to cave to far-left liberals and all their far-left liberal media’s long-held demands and implications, and to simply steal the liberal-left’s motto, campaign promise, […]

The CBC as Space Cadets

Duplicated from ProudToBeCanadian’s Blog section… Satellite radio in Canada: Our Socialist CBC’s own Star Wars Most people in Canada still aren’t on the satellite radio bandwagon, since here in Canada, everything we do or don’t see on TV and listen to on the radio is essentially determined by the magical formulas and ratios created by […]

Rona Ambrose, Conservative MP, elephant in room.

Politically-incorrect alert:  This blog entry contains politically-incorrect-speak.  Liberals please refrain from reading in order to protect your tender sensibilities. If you are among the few who don’t make it a habit to visit Conservative MP Monte Solberg‘s most excellent blog, stop it.  Which is to say start visiting it and make it a habit.  It’s […]
