Donald Trump Jr. Deep Throats Himself

The Trump Campaign (and now Administration) has been and continues to be a street called Crazy with a shop called Crazy that serves a menu full of Crazy with a specialty of Crazy with Crazy on top. The latest? Donald Trump Jr. tweets out evidence that he willingly met with Russian agents in an attempt […]

Quick Thoughts on #ndpldr Candidates’ Strengths, Weaknesses and The Influence of Bernie Sanders On Each of Them

The Federal NDP is in the midst of a leadership race and there is a debate in Saskatoon tonight. I didn’t watch it. I haven’t been following the race super closely. I briefly thought about writing a post where I ranked the four candidates but instead, I thought I’d give a quick review from my […]

Why Pro Wrestling Is A Perfect Metaphor For Trump’s Presidency (And Ten Things Donald Trump Learned From ‘rasslin)

Trump continues to do things that no President has ever done before. As a lifelong fan of wrestling, I agree with much of what this commentator says (and have said it myself as well – scroll down to “American Idol” in this post from right after he won the Presidency.) Basically, in my view, Trump is […]

Really enjoying Blake Berglund on my “Saskatchewan-artists-only” playlist at our seasonal site at Echo Valley Provincial Park.

Throwback Thursday – Some Random Thoughts on the Last Day (?) of STC #skpoli

Yesterday was the last day of the Saskatchewan Transportation Company which was shuttered as part of the Sask Party’s extreme cuts in their last budget. Founded in 1946 by Tommy Douglas’ CCF government as a way to connect and serve a widely distributed and (at the time) mostly rural province, STC hit highs for ridership in the […]

Andrew Scheer Wins Federal Conservative Leadership? #CalledIt #cpcldr

My MP, Andrew Scheer,. surprised quite a few people by winning the leadership of the Conservative Party yesterday. Not me though. Way back in October 2015 on the night of the last federal election during the Liberal landslide, I called it: I doubled down in January 2017 when I reiterated that I thought Scheer would […]
