More Kittens!!!

I typed up another longish post after the Sask NDP debate in Regina tonight but, unlike past leadership races, I’m going to let this one percolate overnight before hitting the “Post” button. Nothing too controversial but just a unique thought I had at the debate that I want to massage a bit more before sharing […]

The Good Doctor @ryanmeili Goes Viral #skndpldr #skpoli

There’s been more than one observer who’s pointed out that the current Sask NDP leadership race is “boring”. I’ll admit that I’ve occasionally had the same thought (and I will also admit that I have considered doing a blog post hypothesizing what a more bare knuckles, US-style NDP leadership campaign would look like.  Hint: It […]

Some Alternate Theories on What Happened in Hawaii

As a general rule, I’m not a conspiracy theorist as I often find the musings of people who are so inclined pretty illogical, far-fetched, and outlandish. But occasionally something happens that makes you wonder if you’re getting the full story? This happened most recently with the “false alarm” alert that was sent to everyone in […]

Should @sask_ndp #skndpldr Voters Consider Who The Winner of The @saskparty Leadership Is When Casting Their Ballot? #skpoli #pickapremier

A Couple Good Articles About Why You Should Give Up Social Media For The New Year

Because of how the timing worked out when I went back to university to complete my MLIS, I was fortunate enough to be able to join Facebook when it was still restricted only to people with educational institution email addresses. (That blog post is dated 2007 but how it’s written makes it pretty clear I […]

“May Old Acquaintance Be Forgot”

Hopefully the new year will bring new leadership for the Sask NDP that will be able to build and grow the party in a way they couldn’t during the last leader’s tenure. 🙁

Throwback Thursday – #tbt – Google’s “2017 Year in Search”

It’s the most wonderful time of the year…for all the many “best of” retrospective lists and articles and posts that come out. The Google Search compilation is usually one of the best (the YouTube Rewind one, not so much!)

“Because you have to swear on the Bye-ball!”

This guy was elected three times and doesn’t know that you aren’t required to swear on a Bible when taking your oath of office? Wow. The only thing that would make this clip better is if Tapper said “Because he says he’s  Christian” when the Moore spokesperson tries to pivot away from his slack-jawed, empty-eyed […]

Democrat Doug Jones Wins Over Accused Pedophile, Roy Moore in Heavily Conservative Alabama

It’s wild that it was even this close (49.7% to 48.6% as I type this with write-in ballots accounting for *double* the vote differential!) but the people of at least one deeply conservative American state has soundly rejected Donald Trump and his brand of “anything goes” politics.
