Don’t say ass.

A bit of a hangover from yesterday's article I posted, which included an extra tidbit near the end about the Associated Press (where the emphasis is on the Ass) and their embarrassing (again with...

Mummy!

I don't have much today but I found this series of tweets to be pretty interesting in a cultural kind of way. And I strive to give you your money's worth. It seems the nobs...

Tweetpoo for Tuesday January 24 2023

OK ! I'm good! I'm now more than fully cognizant that it's "Lunar New Year" in China and such places. I'm sure I don't need yet another tweet from any politicians signaling that they,...

Business Development Bank — AKA Another Big Government Calamity Developing

I think Pierre Poilievre is missing the bigger point. As a conservative, or any normal human, a crown corporation boss flying her personal chauffeur across the country so he'd be there to drive her around...

No, (this) PTBC does not stand for “Patterns of Total Body Connectivity”

Patterns of Total Body Connectivity, huh? Is that like you put dots all over your body (or someone else's) and then see if you can connect the dots, and then having done so, sit...

Hypocrisy flies over his head: John Kerry’s private jet runs on gas but it’s...

Reprinting this gem (yes, I do dare say so myself... because I'm largely underrated) from nearly a year ago — February 3, 2021. This is because the asininity that the self-anointed elites at the...

Strange switch: on healthcare, progressives are conservatives; conservatives are progressive

Progressives are acting like conservatives when it comes to healthcare in Canada. Progressives, not conservatives, want to maintain the status quo — the state-funded and state-run government monopoly healthcare system. (Oh, I think maybe...

“Journalists” broke the rules, were suspended. Good.

If you're a lefty or a journalist (but I repeat myself yadda), you'd readily acknowledge Elon Musk is clearly at risk of harm, even assassination, perhaps more than most humans on Earth today. I'm...

EU and UN hacks threaten Musk’s Twitter because “censorship.” But the EU’s Norway threatens...

Here are two things that do not go together in a sane world. First of all, the "journalists" who were temporarily suspended from Twitter yesterday (most were really nothing more than political activists as...

Trust the “news” media you guys. Also: Trust the “news” media, you guys.

There's no collusion within the Canadian "news" media. They aren't living in a bubble together. They are fair and honest. Objective. Never "activist." They don't get their talking points from anybody other than their...

Justin Trudeau and Canadian “news” media don’t look up.

For years, "Connecting rural Canada" has been a huge Liberal campaign deal. Until today. Since even before they were first elected they've been promising this. Even just last month, the Trudeaupians were busy churning out...

Daily reading. Or not?

I've mentioned how impressed I am at Sam Cooper of Global News and his outstanding reporting on the Chinese Communist Party's election influence campaign targetting Canada in (or at least in) 2019. The first report...

Headlines in news: Musk Got Booed In Woke San Fran. (Also see page C58...

It took a few sentences to figure out why nearly all of the entirely left-wing Canadian "news" media cabal is ignoring this story — I mean especially since they're so big on constantly shrieking...

The usually loquacious Maxime Bernier has no answer for me on his anti-gun-control bromides

I get at least three or four emails per week from Maxime Bernier asking for my money and support (each time addressing me as "Joel" and signing off as "Max" as if he's my...

Politics is a drag for some politicians

How it started: How it's going: But politics can also be a drag of a different sort for corporate ding-dongs who play politics and lose (click to watch 12-second video): Meanwhile, logic can be a drag for...
