If you grew up in Halifax you grew up in a different culture than Lee Richardson

Conservative Lee Richardson who was actually born in North Battleford Saskatchewan was in his riding in Calgary Centre today, when he decided to explain who the criminals really are.
"Look at who's committing these crimes ... They're not the kid that grew up next door," Richardson told the Calgary newsmagazine Fast Forward Weekly.

"Particularly in big cities, we've got people that have grown up in a different culture," he said.

"And they don't have the same background in terms of the stable communities we had 20, 30 years ago in our cities and don't have the same respect for authority or people's person or property. CBC here.

Well very few us would of the had the same experiences that Richardson had back in the 80’s in North Battleford or where ever he was dancing disco in those days.

And as for Calgary, shit I feel like I’m entering the US, every time I go there.

All said though I wouldn’t really want to call him a racist, he just seems to like your typical conservative to me.

But then again, according to Wikipedia (which must be true):
“Richardson is one of a few MP's to indicate his support for Keith Martin's motion to remove the hate speech provision of Section 13(1) of the Canadian Human Right's Act on the grounds that it violates free speech”.
Okay so he not your typical conservative, but I still don’t think his racist attitude is really his fault.

It is most likely the culture and neighborhood he grew up in.

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 …
