Dear Progressive Bloggers Admin people

Us millennial types like to peruse the Progressive Bloggers aggregator via our iPhones (thank you Steve may you rest in peace), and as nice as your new Wordpress theme is somewhat 2010ish, it doesn't work on an iPhone or I assume the cheaper glitzier Chinese knockoffs. 

Do you want to fix that?

Thank you

I agree. ProgBlog is now totally unreadable on my Android Phone. So bad it's incomprehensible unless I use it in landscape mode, and then it's just bloody awful.

This is actually far worse than 8 or 9 years ago when one had to roar around desktop-suitable webpages on phones. But at least you could.

Argh! ProgBlog needs fixing.

Joking aside, I feel the apparent state of affairs at ProgBlog (its unavailability on phones currently and that fact that the 'contact' link doesn't work so there is no way to provide suggestions or perhaps assistance) is more than a just a personal misfortune or an annoyance.

I'm sure someone, somewhere has, and continues, to dedicate valuable time to keeping things running at ProgBlog and we should all be grateful that the vision and work has continued as long as it has. (I just bet no-one has ever been adequately remunerated for this work).

Now is the time when this 'service' is, or certainly could be, coming into its own; when, as Canadians, we need to hear the progressive voice and be able to find those who are providing that voice.

I am actually crestfallen that I no longer can easily access this service and its advantages for following and finding Canadian progressive voices as I have become accustomed to do on my phone.

Hi BM and Anonymous 4:54, it looks like they did a change on the mobile format tonight (Saturday, June 2, 2018). Strange looking but i've complained enough for now.

If you folks would like to suggest a mobile plugin that works (and doesnt cost anything), I am all ears.

The mobile plugin we have now from what I can see, works on my end. This is a volunteer site, and while I am good with Wordpress.. I am not a coder and can only do so much.

Alternatively... you can read it on your laptop or desktop if it doesn't work. Remember.. this is a volunteer site and the affiliates are on here by their consent and wishes to be a Prog Blog affiliate.. and aren't being charged to use it.

If folks think they can setup and run a better aggregator, please set one up.. I've run or helped run this site since it was created in 2005 , basically paid for its monthly fees on my own (with the exception of this past December, when I asked on our FB group for donations that would help me keep it up) and put up with lots of annoyances. I'd be more then happy to turn it over to people who can run one better.

I am told the changes we've done now work with mobile. Hope everyone also can view it properly.

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 …

Election close call, Omar, Bob and move over Warren

Wow that was a close one:
With the NDP leading in the polls at the beginning of September, I started to prepare myself, for the very first time in my life, to vote for the NDP. Mulcair looked good enough for me, with some of the best lines about Harper's Government during most of his interviews, except that he would always add the phrase, "just like the liberals" to the end of it and I thought, if I'm one of those Harper hating, Liberal voters that you probably need to vote for you, why the hell are you insulting me with this partisan bullshit.
