Time to get back on the horse.

I guess it is time to get back on the old saddle around here. I have been gone way too long, and with the events of the last few months I really feel I should get back to blogging.

To be honest, it was hard to be motivated to support the last Conservative Party, with the negativity, hate (barbaric cultural practices hotline??), and frankly, small-mindedness.

That being said, I just cannot fathom this rock star persona around Prime Minister Trudeau, and the left's giddy behaviour with regards to him.

I understand the desire to change. I understand the hope he purports to bring. I cannot understand the people posting to Facebook about his, or his wife's looks. Posting his glamour shots, being proud of having a "handsome" Prime Minster. It smacks of sexism.

Nor, can I stand the free ride Prime Minister Trudeau gets from the press, examples like

  1. Equal gender cabinet, where nearly all the women are second-tier Cabinet Ministers, or reporting to men. And if we want to be honest, there are only a few more women in PM Trudeau's cabinet then there were in Stephen Harper's. 
  2. A dubious Science Minister shilling a decidedly non-scientific MS cure.
  3. The free ride he is getting on explaining why we shouldn't bomb ISIS in Iraq and Syria. But have more trainers.
  4. Explain how we will screen the refugees, to ensure security. Or why we should bring in twice as many as the Americans.

That is just four, I am sure I could come up with more if I really tried.
