Bill, once again you prove to me how wise you are!!! :? :? :? :?

But I have to confess that in my younger days, before I started thinking straight, I was a right red-neck. Some 45 years ago my thinking started me on the path of, I believe, common-sense (some). My profoundest belief now-a-days is my dislike of Religion. The religion itself, not the misguided people who firmly believe in it's teachings. More and more it's dawning on me that they are fully entitled to their belief, just don't shove down my throat.
Mind you, I do get incensed when I think of all these religions NOT paying taxes, have been granted in the past prime Real Estate, in perpetuity.
Knock it off Arnie or people will believe I am a sectarian.

Stay safe and well. Arnie :D :D :D :D :D :D :D

Howdy,
I live about an hour south of Calgary, bible belt - red neck Alberta.
We have a conservative provincial government who are trying to cut some spending from the budget but are starting with civil servants, nurses and doctors etc. Prior to this the NDP provincial government went climate change crazy and along with the worlds oil and gas problems the bread and butter of Canada's Energy sector suffered like never before, unemployment and companies going broke became the norm.
Its a mess.
Alberta is probably the most 'cowboy' of the provinces where men own guns, hunt, fish and enjoy the outdoors.
The federal government are after many of the guns, placing restrictions on fishing and stopping ATV's riding the trails in the back country.
Its a mess.
We have young voters who focus on the environment and clean fuels etc but without the oil industry you still need back up generators to run if the wind turbines fail........run by diesel.
Its a mess.
Glad I'm not a teenager today, nuff said.

As a man, I used to think I was pretty much just a regular person, but I was born white, into a two-parent household which now,

whether I like it or not, makes me "Privileged", a racist & responsible for slavery.



I am a fiscal & moral conservative, which by today's standards, makes me a fascist because I plan, budget & support myself.



I went to Secondary School, got professionally qualified & have always held a job. I now find out that I am not here because I earned it,

but because I was "advantaged”.



I am heterosexual, which now makes me a homophobe. I am not a Muslim, which now labels me as an infidel .



I am older than 40, making me a useless waster who doesn't understand Facebook, Instagram, or Snapchat.



I think & I reason, and I doubt much of what "mainstream" media tells me, which makes me a "Right-wing conspiracy nut”.



I am proud of my heritage & our inclusive British culture, making me a xenophobe.



I believe in hard work, fair play, & fair compensation according to each individual's merits, which today makes me an anti-socialist.



I believe our system guarantees freedom of effort - not freedom of outcome or subsidies which makes me a borderline sociopath.



I believe in the defence & protection of our great country for & by all citizens, now making me a militant.



I am proud of our flag, what it stands for and the many who died to let it fly, so I must be an imperialist and a racist.



Please help me come to terms with the new me because I'm just not sure who I am anymore !



Funny - it all took place over the last 7 or 8 years !!



If all this nonsense wasn't enough to deal with, now I don't even know which toilet to use !!
