Things We Wish We Could Say Out Loud – Public Service Shootings

Reading, watching and listening to the local Toronto news, it is easy to thing that the city have become a war zone, with shootings going on night and day. And, of course, any shooting is an unfortunate thing. That said, I do start to wonder whether the hand wringing is a way for many to avoid saying what we wish we could say, that we don’t really care about...

I Agree with #MeToo – We Must Protect Women, They Are Just So Delicate

It should go without saying that I stand with those who have used the #MeToo hashtag. Women should not be raped, harassed, leered at or be within earshot of something that might possibly offend them. Like children, women are always almost completely powerless and cannot be expected to protect themselves. If attacked, women cannot be expected to report such actions....

One of the fathers mentioned that he was worried about his daughter, who is 18, living alone on the other side of the country. Unfortunately, but not surprisingly, the...

Things We Wish We Could Say Out Loud – Immigration, Refugees and Culture

It is September 2017. Over the last few months in Canada, we have seen protests against illegal immigration where people are choosing to walk across the border from the US. Many people can understand the motivation. Non-citizens in the US are worried that the change in politics signaled by the election of Donald Trump is an indicator that they will be deported back...

The Russians Interfered with the US Election. No Shit!

Sick of CNN and the always shocked idiots. The Russians interfered with the US elections. Of course they did. How is this any different from the US interfering with elections around the world? What the media should be investigating is just how badly the US populace has been educated over the last decades to be so easily swayed. Instead, they ask panels of people to...

Now that its over … Grab them by the pussy

Now that its over, some things can be said. These will come out from time to time.   In 2005, Donald Trump was captured on video saying, “And when you’re a star, they let you do it. You can do anything. Grab them by the pussy. You can do anything.” If you watched the news over the following week, you would have heard pundits stating how awful it was that...
