Monthly Archive for December, 2010

I must warn you that I’m meaner than a junkyard dog today – and on two unrelated matters that somehow focused my attention on one big issue. It started when I went into the Hudson’s Bay in Park Royal North to buy some underwear and could find no one to direct me. I had to […]

I can’t for the life of me understand why any Liberal would vote for Christy Clark nor why any sane voter would vote for her. Here again is the time I say (truthfully, I assure you), that it’s very hard to pillory people you like but as Ms. Clark evidently never learned, political journalists are […]

Wikileaks

Julian Assange, the major domo of Wikileaks, ought to be in jail. There is a word away from a whistler blower and Assange. The whistle blower sees something wrong in his sphere of work and tells the public what it is. Assange is releasing documents not because he’s concerned for the truth but as a […]

Potential new NDP leaders III

What a glorious opportunity for a 3rd Party claiming the centre of the political spectrum! I was surprised at the action taken by Jenny Kwan asking for a leadership convention. What a pickle this puts Carole James in!. I want to say this about my own position. PLEASE DON’T TAKE ANY OF MY POLITICAL RAMBLINGS […]

Now that the Liberal leadership has warmed up we, the long suffering environmentalists, have our work cut out for us – the environment must be an issue.
