Points to ponder regarding climate change hysteria

By Lethbridge Herald on October 28th, 2018

I would like to suggest that those frightened by the current hysteria regarding carbon-based climate change consider : 1. The petition signed by over 31,000 scientists decrying global warming as a fraud (www.petitionproject.org). I’ll warn you up front, Edward Teller (father of the H bomb) is a signee. 2. Chinese carbon emissions versus the rest ... Read More »

What’s the purpose of carbon tax?

By Lethbridge Herald on October 26th, 2018

The word “politics” is a compound word that accurately describes the people in it. “Poly” means many and “tics” are blood sucking creatures. This definition is humorous but bears some resemblance to what is going on with the carbon tax discussions. So many people are saying the carbon tax is a good thing, but I ... Read More »

MLA engaging in fear-mongering?

By Lethbridge Herald on October 26th, 2018

MLA Shannon Phillips’ comments in the Lethbridge Herald (Oct. 17, “UCP cuts dire for teachers, says Phillips”) amount to nothing more than fear-mongering. She has no firm information to back this up! She claims that 151 teaching positions can be lost over the next four years. It is a well-known practice of political parties who ... Read More »

Moving problem around isn’t a solution

By Lethbridge Herald on September 15th, 2018

Two news features appearing in the Sept. 11 Herald proved an exercise in contradiction. On the front page, Police Chief Davis, in the article “Police chief recommends ‘The Watch’ program to help cope with opioid crisis,” states in that piece, “We can staff appropriately to be constantly displacing drug users and crime,” and further along ...

The pitfalls of overproducing

By Lethbridge Herald on August 29th, 2018

Business dictates continuous “growth.” Growth of what? We overproduce everything. Overproducing creates slowdowns, layoffs, financial crunches. Then conservatives demand more subsidies and tax relief so business can overproduce atmospheric gases to replace the oxygen people want to breathe. Conservatives say breathe less for business. Progressives insist we must have more of everything so we aren’t ... Read More »

Making excuses for poor performance

By Lethbridge Herald on August 2nd, 2018

I am still amazed how socialists continue to make excuses for the performance of the NDP government. Some commentators have made false assumptions; I am not a signed-up conservative, I hold no membership in any party, my only memberships being in the UAW and more recently the UFCW. I am foremost an Albertan who is ... Read More »

Assimilation or multi-culturalism?

By Lethbridge Herald on August 2nd, 2018

I have been thinking about the new influx of immigrants into Canada. A lot of folk tell me it is the duty of immigrants to become assimilated into the larger culture. This is apparently what they call multiculturalism. But, did everyone who came here, come here to assimilate? In 2012, the Universities of Delaware and ... Read More »

We must overcome crisis of differing opinions

By Lethbridge Herald on July 29th, 2018

I am wondering how impartial The Herald can actually be in reporting on the opioid crisis? At the bottom of the front page of the Special Report section, the writers attempt to introduce the series of articles as being an objective presentation, without bias, of the crisis. I appreciate that they thought that, but their ... Read More »

Proposed regulations will hurt condo owners

By Lethbridge Herald on July 29th, 2018

Why is it nothing has been in the media about Service Alberta’s release of their proposed condo governance “regulations” and the associated condo survey due July 31? Is it because they don’t want one in four Alberta homeowners realizing the many shortcomings and loopholes of their current and proposed condo legislation they want proclaimed into ... Read More »

Intentional destruction of the United States?

By Lethbridge Herald on July 28th, 2018

The only way I can make any sense of Donald Trump and the American government is to assume that what is happening is by design. I don’t think anyone can be that stupid and still be able to tie his own shoes. Having said that, I asked myself what would be the simplest explanation for ... Read More »
