I really like this group even the government trolls

I'm new and I don't get a lot of traffic, so I read my site meter often. (it's an ego thing, I'm afraid). Anyway I'm absolutely blown away by the amount of Government trolling that goes on and the number of Government desktops that appear in, I am sure, all of our site meters. You do a post about the duck slaughter and the next day you find both the Alberta Forestry Lands and Wildlife, as well as the feds at Resources Canada have quickly dropped by and checked out the posts.

On one hand you hope it's not a bunch of bored employees looking for something to laugh at their bosses about (they should have more important things to do. Like stop killing off our wildlife and the planet in general) and on the other you hope that big brother is not going to come down on you for some libelous statement that you made in the middle of a rant. Apparently our current federal government has a tendency to sue people.

And it's not just these somewhat paranoid neocon, reformers either. The site has had other provincial governments, anonymous members of Parliament, even the US State department drop by to check out a post. It looks like they are just checking the noise level on the street, so to speak. But I guess that is the power of the blogosphere that the big sites I read every day are talking about.

Interestingly on the duck slaughter searches, Alberta used the typical Google method, while Resources Canada went straight to Progressive Bloggers. So I think I joined the right group. I just need to do a good enough post that directs enough readers to a specific government page, so that the Minister in charge gets a personal message so to speak and then comes a searching. Tried last week but the post wasn't good enough. I'll keep working on that and thanks for letting me into your group.

PizzaGate explained

Never heard Bernie speak until after the US election, saw the debates and thought Hillary cleaned Trump's clock. Knew Trump was a prick and couldn't understand how any sane person would vote for him, yet for some reason, I called myself a Bernie guy, didn't trust Hillary and had no idea why.

But, at least I didn't take my gun to a pizza joint to break up a pedophilia ring in the basement and end up getting four years in prison, like Ed Welch from North Carolina.

RollingStone in partnership with the Investigative Fund and the Centre for Investigative Reporting along with five other journalists tracked down the origins and methodologies used to propagate the most successful fake news story of the past election,

Boys are not allowed to hit girls

Don't do much anymore except make breakfast for one of my grandkids, a seven year old boy, walking him to school, picking him up and then having philosophical conversations about his day. Living in the basement of my daughter's house, I really try, to not interfere with their parenting, but what the hell, right now he spends as much time with me during the week, than he does with them.

The other day my daughter who came home early and ended up eavesdropping on our conversation about when to fight and when to walk away. Apparently it was one of those days in the school yard.

"Look, it is really simple" I started, "there are only two rules about fighting.The first rule is, you don't start the fight, but if a boy hits you, hit him back, as hard and as fast as you can and don't stop until he runs away." He liked that part and demonstated how he would punch. "In other other words," I continued "you will only be in trouble if you started the …
