“I am a Canadian, free to speak without fear, free to worship in my own way, free to stand for what I think right, free to oppose what I believe wrong, or free to choose those who shall govern my country. This heritage of freedom I pledge to uphold for myself and all mankind.” ~~ John G. Diefenbaker

Stephen Harper's Conservative are the new Borg Collective ... "We are the Conservatives ... we are the Borg ... resistance is futile"

Those of you who are Trekies, and watched Star Trek Next Generation, and Star Trek Voyager, the following phrase can be uttered by heart:

"We are the Borg. Lower your shields and surrender your ships. We will add your biological and technological distinctiveness to our own. Your culture will adapt to service us. Resistance is futile."
To those suffering from Harper Derangement Syndrome (HDS), and spewing all kinds of factless, and baseless, allegations over how the Conservative government is taking over every aspect of our lives (and somehow forcing a hidden agenda on everyone), this must be an apt description for them, of the Conservative Party of Canada.

In an article in the Vancouver Sun several days ago, Lorne Gunter is acknowledged in first identifying HDS. He described it as, “an ideological hatred of Prime Minister Stephen Harper that is so acute its sufferers’ ability to reason logically is impaired.”

The article went on to say:
An early example of HDS was the widespread attribution by academics and journalists of a “hidden agenda” to Harper and his party.

This has been based on allegations that:
- the Conservative government has drastically reduced funding to the CBC
- they were forcing a pro-life agenda on the country (despite Harper clearly stating time and time again this would NOT be part of any legislation brought forward
- Tony Burman wrote a story for The Star with a headline claiming Harper was a bigger threat than the Islamic State. Why? Because Harper exaggerated the terrorist threat so as to “distract voters” from climate change
- the Conservatives were going expand private health care services (this one has been floating around now (this ones been around for years, with still NO Sign of it happening, yet it has resurfaced again in recent days by THOMAS Mulcair)
- Harper has cut funding to health care, when in fact it has done nothing but increase year after year

Oh, and we can't forget that the Harper government is bound and intent on being a warmonger nation; and reasoning for that of course is for joining with numerous countries to try and halt the murderous forward assault by ISIS.  Yes that wonderful group of Boy Scouts out to free citizens in middle east countries, from their ill conceived and false religious ideas.  Yes, those folks who are simply trying to live their lives in peace.

Justin Trudeau's solutions is for everyone to join hands and sing Kumbaya (or whatever the radical Islamic version of the song is), while Mulcair simply says he will pull our Canadian Forces out of the region.

The latest alleged assault by Harper, by those suffering from HDS, is regarding the debate on the Niqab.  Despite the fact that the Niqab is indeed rooted in a culture that is anti-women, the government is in fact in no way forcing women to give up the niqab in public, ONLY in Citizenship ceremonies.

AND YET the Conservatives, and Stephen Harper, are being railed against for forcing their personal views (hidden agenda?) on women.  What an asinine statement of misinformation, and feverish frothing at the mouth, by the liberal and left-leaning elitists!

Yes ... according to them the Stephen Harper Conservatives are the new Borg Collective ... We are the Conservatives ... we are the Borg ... resistance is futile.

Well NOT apparently to the majority of Canadians ... at least on this issue.

Still ... there is NO hidden agenda ... there hasn't been one from the start ... and there is no sign of one showing up any sign soon.

In closing today, let's go back to Star Trek and one of its fans favorite characters ... Spock ... who said, "Live long and prosper", to which I will add, with of course a Conservative government led by Stephen Harper.

I'm Alan Forseth in Kamloops, and I welcome any thoughts you might have on this.

The stats clearly demonstrate the need for professional and impartial advice at the time of purchase, renewal, and refinancing of mortgages

REPRINTED WITH PERMISSION : Canadian Mortgage Trends   Canadians need guidance with their mortgages ... t hat’s the takeaway from a national survey released this week by, which found half of Canadians aren’t aware of the mortgage options available to them. Not only that, but Canadians are lacking in some other basic mortgage trivia, with an astounding 9 out of 10 respondents not knowing that mortgage interest is charged semi-annually: 28% think interest is compounded monthly; 17% think it’s bi-weekly; 17% think it’s annually; 28% just have no idea. Should we be concerned? Dustan Woodhouse, President of Mortgage Architects, and a former active broker who has written multiple educational mortgage books, thinks so. “ Sounds about right. We know about what we pay attention to, i.e., The Kardashians ,” he wrote to CMT. “ The material concern in this is how easy it makes it for the government to over-regulate the industry, with c

THE SIDEWINDER -- Just quit your constant damned whining and do something positive about it

  Living in a democracy is a wonderful thing, but it comes with responsibilities such as voting and being involved. When the dust settled on Saturdays (October 24 th ) BC election, less than two thirds of the eligible voters * took the time to vote - but the loudest bitchers will probably be among the more than one third of voters who sat on their asses and complained about how all politicians are crooks, etc. How many of you constant whiners have ever done anything close to becoming involved; or do you just like sniveling to hear your own voice? Are you one the arseholes who likes to take advantage of everything our democracy has to offer, without ever contributing anything? And I don't want to listen to your crap about paying taxes, blah, blah, blah. There's more to making democracy work than simply voting and then sitting back and let others carry the ball for you. Too many people seem unwilling to get involved - and follow-up - to make sure elected po

AARON GUNN -- He is, at his core, an ideologue, meaning the facts of any particular issue don’t actually matter

Ben Isitt - City Councillor and Regional Director Victoria City Council and its resident-genius Ben Isitt is back with another dumb idea. Introducing a motion to ban the horse-drawn carriages that have coloured Victoria’s downtown streets for decades, calling them “an outdated mode of transportation”. Are you serious?   No one is actually commuting by horse and carriage. They are here for tourists and residents alike to interact with world-class animals and discover the magic and history of our provincial capital. It’s part of what gives Victoria its charm. And the truth is these horses are treated better than anywhere else in the world. They probably live better lives than many British Columbians.   And talk to anyone who works with these horses and they’ll all tell you the exact same thing: this is what the horses love to do. This is what they were bred for and trained for. This is what gives their lives purpose and meaning. But maybe we shouldn’t be su
