We watch TV for a couple of hours every evening, and can't stand much more than that — unless we're watching a golf tournament and Tiger Woods is making another amazing comeback. It's not...

Vancouver & BC under left-wing/NDP admins: how it’s going so far

Since we're talking about Vancouver and BC... yoga's "Downard Dog" rang a bell with me when thinking about the state of affairs in Vancouver and BC. (Also the word "dope.") A scan of the news...

What in tarnation (or Southpark)?

I'm on vacay, as I explained here, but I had to post this because, well, because what in tarnation? The graphic tweeted out by UBC (apparently now to be known as Woke University) is like...

Vacay, in case you didn’t notice

When I write new articles, this site's daily visitor numbers spike. Duh, you say. But it's weird how sometimes, this site's daily visitor numbers are huge when I'm on vacation. Not so "duh," right?...

Anti-Canadian oil idiot Sebastian Vettel set to retire now. Aww.

His name has come up at PTBC here and here recently. Suffice it to say I'm not a fan of this anti-Canadian idiot. Perhaps Vettel, the F1 race car driver whose job is literally to...

NEW: Two negative quarters is a recession only when Republicans are in power.

This is a lie. Misinformation. Until they change the dictionary, which I have no doubt they will to protect Biden and big-spending Democrats and their progressive-left base, this is, in fact, the definition — precisely,...

Tweets that go together

We could say "one thing leads to another." Or we could say "if this, then that." Or we could say choose Kamala Harris as your VP pick and this is exactly what you get. Which...

“News” story leaves out pertinent details about communist extremists; an independent journalist fills in...

Amazing difference between what you read and what is actually happening. Or in this case, what's actually happening, and what you aren't reading about it. The story sounds like another random murder or suicide. Horrible...

I grew up in the Age of Aquarius. That's how old I am. But we now live in the Age of Hypocrisy and Dumbassery. I wrote about this when it happened, but the idiot F-1...

We’re sorry to inconvenience you, but Rogers is down, so please hold your calls...

Whoo boy. There will be ramifications from this, no doubt. I just hope they're the right ones. Rogers — the cell phone carrier in this household (which relies to a very large degree on its...

Who’s running for the “Ottawa” party?

"Ottawa's" hypocrisy. Oh dear. Spot the irony. "Ottawa" is code for "Liberals and NDP," and is used by the "news" media whenever there's something going on in Big Government Ottawa — when Libs or NDP...
