To Founder or to Flourish

While the federal Liberals, under Mr Truduea purchased and promised to approve the twinning of the TransMountain pipeline, they did not bother to send any representation to speak favouring the project in the latest court challenge. The government’s sincerity in support of this pipeline is questionable as the loudest voice in Mr Truduea’s ear is his faithful, anti-oil environmentalist, Gerald Butts.

Quality of Life and Energy.

And so the question, can bureaucratic control lead to societal success? Can a population flourish when every decision must be made by a self-serving committee? We’ve been warned of the dangers of doing so by the signers of the Magna Carta, by John Locke, by Ben Franklin, John Adams, and Thomas Paine. In fiction, George Orwell, Ayn Rand and many others paint dismal pictures showing what transpires when life-control is relinquished to bureaucracies.

End Self-censorship on the Carbon Dioxide Debate

A version of this was written for and published by the BC Conservative. The intimidation is almost beyond belief – government officials threatening fines and jail time for questioning catastrophic global warming. In the latest round the Competitive Enterprise Institute and Exxon have both been issued subpoenas to provide more than 10 years of their […]

Who Pays The Carbon Tax?

First, revenue neutral means the government will redistribute the tax collected, supposedly lowering other taxes. This does not mean you get your money back because there are innumerable other pockets that will be filled first….
Notably, the carbon tax is praised far and wide by what has become the two most influential groups in our society, the political bureaucracy and the environmental lobbyists. Both groups are unstintingly devoted to programming the world for the rest of us.

How NOT to sell LNG.

Today, combined-cycle natural gas turbines are the most cost effective means to generate electricity, yet that method has been rejected by the BC Liberals. Had we chosen to generate electricity with natural gas, the industry would have a stable market that would not only provide employment but build the infrastructure needed if and when the opportunity to market our gas around the world does come to fruition in the future.

On Islamic Appeasement

Most of the Islamic lead atrocities have occurred since Iran’s religious leader called for the death of ‘Satanic Verses’ author Salman Rushdie. They fear our free speech, not our retaliatory defence. If the Muslin world valued life they would stop brutalizing and killing their own people. Hence, brutality does not bother them, only our criticism is intolerable.

BC politics, the Liberals

…….how much further down this road, taxing one to provide service to another, will we go before we open our eyes and our minds to reality. Are we going to go over the debt cliff before we stop? Are we going to tolerate a state that subverts all law in its zeal to provide all things to all people? Are we going to ignore the lessons of history and destroy a once affluent society,…….

Messy Empires

In my pursuit of exploring the history of Barrak Obama and how he came to such influence I followed a lead to Bill Ayer and found this on his web site….. The end of an empire is messy at best And this empire is ending Like all the rest Like the Spanish Armada adrift on […]

Terrorism – 9/11

This LTE was sent to the Victoria Times Colonist shortly after 9/11happened, something to hold in mind when asked by President Obama to make 9/11 the day of public service. Sirs: On September 11th 2001, some 3500 of our fellow citizens started their day the same way we did, harboring no grudge toward others and […]
