Quitting the habit, journalist leaves state-owned CBC for healthier life.

Quitting smoking is old news. Everybody's done it. But quitting left-wing media is a new one. It's officially a trend now. Bari Weiss may have started this healthier journalism trend —and for once I'm...

I guess in the spirit of Christmas we could call our governments “fickle.”

One of these things is not like the other. Clue: the first quote I pulled out of a "news"paper is based on reporting of political and ever-so Canadian bullshit and pseudo-science; the second one...

I read the news today, oh boy. Time for a Christmas holiday.

Are ya like me? Does Christmas put you in the mind of an earlier time? At Christmas time do you spontaneously harken back to a simpler time, remembering, say, old Beatles songs — perhaps...

Some Tweetpoo – Wednesday Dec 8 2021

Holy Twitter tweetpoo. I only briefly tuned into Twitter this evening, and quickly found the place full of poop. Here's just a couple or three. The New York Times pooped all over themselves this evening,...

A diplomatic boycott of China’s government games is one thing

Canada followed the lead (as usual) of other nations (as usual) today, in finally deciding to refuse to send its government officials to the China government (sorry, "Olympic" — wink!) games in February. This...

Not to beg the question or go into uncharted territory here…

...But the news media should learn how to write. It's not "unchartered." It's uncharted: And yes I looked at the article, and no, it does not refer to the Charter of Rights, and if it did,...

News article boiled down to short-form: GOVERNMENT FAIL.

Here's another good explanatory article in the Globe and Mail (yes, I do recognize good reporting too, and believe me, after the shock wears off, I have to wipe the smile off my face...

Abort the baloney living and growing inside of you. I’m pro-choice on that.

Listening to America's  Supreme Court proceedings yesterday concerning the Mississippi abortion law being challenged by an abortion group, an interesting stat was birthed that gave new life to Canada's awful place in the world....

Trudeau, please go to Tofino. (?!)

Oh dear God. Didn't think I'd be saying this, but... yeah, please go to Tofino, Mister Prime Minister. Surf's up. Pot's available. Better yet, Abbotsford, where you might finally —  usefully — spend some of...

State-Owned CBC lists words you may not use as a free person anymore because...

Were they directed to print this lame spooky garbage by their savage masters? Blackmailed by the tribe that enables them? Blindsided by the woke-ghetto nutbars? I mean what on God's green Earth are they...

Fun with words: Throne speech ignores “entrepreneurs,” “business,” “investment,” “deficit,” “debt,” “inflation”…

If you didn't listen to the purple-haired lady read Justin Trudeau's throne speech, you might want to know what was said, and what wasn't. You might appeal to the "news" media for that. And...

Fun with menorahs

Great job by our local airshow (summer's coming!) folks on Insta. And I share the sentiment!

“Omicron.” How to spot bullxit.

They're not protecting the beloved Chinese Communist leader! It's in the news so it must be true! The Globe and Mail runs to the rescue of their beloved World Health Organization today, along with every...

So, other than climate change…

The implication is that everything's good to go, and in tip-top shape, well maintained, and always has been, but for the need to prepare for the coming climate change. And that would be bullshit. See,...

A Flood of Government Failure

When I read the "news" media reports about the flooding in BC — particularly the worst-hit areas around Abbotsford like the Sumas area — I'm reminded of the most recent example of utter "news"...
