Send Lizzie Borden to Washington

Any Republican governor of a blue state who manages to balance the budget without raising taxes should be a nominee for Mount Rushmore, to say nothing of president. Mitt Romney was governor of a state so blue, it’s North Korea with more Irish people, and he balanced the budget without raising taxes. Even Ronald Reagan […]

Hi (again!) Facebook fans. Here’s another test for our new Facebook page which we don’t like..

Now I’m (re,re!-)testing NetworkedBlogs on the fabulous new BoldColors.net Facebook page, (Facebook, which we don’t want to have to bother with but we are anyway because it’s what the cool kids do today). (And I’m on vacation! So much fun. Later, I’m gonna mow the lawn!) This blog entry should show up on the Facebook […]

Maybe I could hire some poor striking public service workers from Canada Post to do the reno work around here.

I don’t like blogging like this.

UPDATE: I have now updated the look, and touch-ups are all that is left to do. Whine. I preferred the style of my old house, ProudToBeCanadian.ca, wherein it was more like a blog than a magazine with articles.  I’m finding the constant need, here, to update the featured pictures tedious; and I worry that folks […]

Weiner’s Penis Photo Dispute To Be Settled In Small Claims Court

Sometimes I wonder if Rep. Anthony Weiner, D-N.Y., is too nice for his own good. An evil swine hacks into Weiner’s Twitter account and posts an embarrassing photo of spindly legs topped by a small erect penis draped in dingy gray briefs no male over the age of 11 would wear — and Anthony just […]

Peggy Noonan Sees the Need for Bold Colors.

In explaining President Obama, Harry Reid, and all Democrats’ agenda in being returned to power in 2012 and beyond, and their battle against the Paul Ryan/Republican tough-but-sound budget proposal being touted by Republicans, writer Peggy Noonan hits the nail on the head, as is her habit.  Here’s a penultimate conclusion in her latest Wall Street […]

A bewildering history of the Arab world

No matter what season it is in Arab politics, spring or winter, there is one near certainty since time immemorial: Arab politics teeter on the fine line separating Bedouin savagery and some form of authoritarian order. In such a world, democracy is another word for mobocracy. This is what we have been witnessing behind the […]

DDT causes diabetes, breast cancer and infant deaths?

Is it time to bring back JunkScience.com’s DDTees? Today’s New York Times article “As an Insecticide Makes a Comeback, Uganda Must Weigh Its Costs” states: But the United States banned the use of DDT in 1972 over the chemical’s hazardous environmental impact. Studies have also linked DDT to diabetes and breast cancer. One examination of […]

Maybe world IS ending? Left-wing party running Manitoba tests idea of non-gov liquor sales

I am a late adherent to the truth.  I now believe the world is in fact ending on Saturday. An NDP government  —  yes, the big-government socialists who still largely believe government control and ownership of every thing is de rigueur, is now considering allowing private supermarkets to sell liquor  —  well beer and wine […]

Progressives believe it’s a core function of gov to pay for crap. Literally.

I’m glad the mainstream media in Canada is bringing this story to light (see article just below), but the overarching story here is political.  People  —  average citizens, your neighbors, folks at the BBQ you’re going to this weekend  —  stand around in wonderment and ask “why does this kind of crap continue to happen?  […]

Meet the state-owned CBC’s very own Goomba: Neil Macdonald

It’s instructive to follow the liberal-left mainstream media and how they hit a political obstacle and reflexively, apparently without even thinking or reading what they’ve written in the past, reconfigure their political minds and do this weird, archaic, about-face  —  to defend the accused, when the accused is something like one of their own, politically.  […]

Profiles in Tolerance

Last month, I was standing at the podium getting ready to give a lecture when I noticed a young woman had her laptop computer out. I was amused when I saw that the outside of her computer was adorned with a bumper sticker that said “TOLERANCE” in big white letters. I ignored her plea for […]

Democracy bloodied

Well, that one didn’t take long did it? The great Arab spring, the awakening of democracy and pluralism in the Middle East, hugs and kisses all round, and even perhaps a goodwill tour from some dreadful CBC comedy team. No, it’s all a fantasy. A liberal, western, relativist fantasy. Christians murdered and churches destroyed in […]

Pakistan: Deceit from the beginning

As the story of Osama bin Laden unwinds, the bigger story is about Pakistan and what it says about the idiocy of the great western powers since 1945. States have no morality, and the game they play is layered with duplicity and deceit. The fine art in this ancient game is not to be unduly […]
