“Further Annoying the Law-abiding Won’t Help”

| April 1, 2018

“How much do you trust your government? “It’s the eternal American question, but one Canadians should be asking themselves, too. “Because in a few months, we will presumably all wake up free — for the first time in any of our lives — to legally possess recreational cannabis. “And with that new freedom will come […]

Smoke, Mirrors, and a Soldier

| March 25, 2018

I read an article the other day written by Josh Makuch and published last Friday to Vice  with the title, “I’m a Veteran In Favour of More Gun Control — Gun owners could learn a lot from how the Canadian military treats their firearms.” This was, of course, trendy because the Trudeau government is only this […]

Ode to an Anthem

| February 26, 2018

If you ain’t from around here, you probably won’t know how many tweaks and revisions the national anthem of Canada — O Canada — has undergone since it was first performed, as a French poem set to music, on 24 June 1880. As with any popular patriotic song, it went through a series of translations, […]

Boys Will Be Boys

| June 5, 2017

This is in response to a piece published 3 June 2017 by Milo Yiannopoulos under the title “Trans Girl” Makes No Effort To Transition, Sweeps Actual Girls Track Meets & Brags About It. I invite you to read it and form your own opinion before moving south to read mine. If you’re blind, the profession […]

An LFM St. Patrick’s Day Compendium

| March 17, 2017

Today for your edification, I’m offering up a concentrated dose of St. Patrick’s Day goodness gleaned from LFM utterances on St. Patrick’s Days past. Too much goodness to lie forgotten in the archives. It’s been said that God invented whisky so the Irish wouldn’t take over the world. So far it’s worked. I’ve always appreciated […]

We’ll Burn That Bridge When We Come to It

| February 15, 2016

The Jian Ghomeshi sexual assault trial awaits its verdict, scheduled for 24 March 2016, and the world of polarized politics driven and abetted by social media can’t understand why all this due process crap should even be allowed to stand in the way of a well deserved lynching. This morning over coffee, I read a […]

The Elephant in the Closet Wants Out

| January 13, 2016

Law enforcement officials lost control of the situation in Cologne on New Year’s Eve, according to an internal report by Germany’s national police, the Bundespolizei, obtained by DER SPIEGEL. The author of the report, dated Jan. 4, is a senior official. He writes: “Women, accompanied or not, literally ran a ‘gauntlet’ through masses of heavily […]

Dark Sentiments 2015 – Day 15: Fifty Shades of Grey – I Can’t Masturbate to This

| October 15, 2015

The sudden upswing in popularity of such books as Fifty Shades of Grey is at once unsurprising and inexplicable to me. Unsurprising because the dark side of desire has always had, and always will have its allure, and only leads to a bad end when unstable personalities or Hollywood movie producers become involved. Inexplicable because […]

Gildor Inglorion: “That Gandalf should be late, does not bode well. But it is said: ‘Do not meddle in the affairs of Wizards, for they are subtle and quick to anger.’ The choice is yours: to go or wait.” Frodo Baggins: “And it is also said, ‘Go not to the elves for counsel, for they […]

Take the Fight to the Enemy

| April 19, 2015

For those of you who aren’t privy to the machinations of Canadian politics, our government is attempting to push through a piece of legislation that is widely held by the thinking population, including us LFMs, as a dangerous and intolerable assault on the rights and freedoms of Canadians, all presented as another one of those […]
