“BUT I DIGRESS“ consists of “HEAD TREKS” that represent the conversion of random thoughts, sometimes in the form of “QUICK TREKS”, observations, philosophies and rants into a form of modern cursive expression better known as computer keyboarding. From time to time these thoughts are also summarized under the heading “IT REMAINS TO BE SEEN: QUESTIONS I CANNOT PRESENTLY ANSWER.”
IT REMAINS TO BE SEEN: QUESTIONS I CANNOT PRESENTLY ANSWER
-Whether Canada’s increasing “nanny state” governance will serve to retard the future efficient use of individual brain cells?
-Whether it will ever be understood that leaders make, often many, mistakes on the road to accomplishment, but that those who never attempt such will never make mistakes…………..or achieve anything?
-Whether the long standing and scientifically recognized rhythms of El Niño and La Niña weather cycles will be treated as normal cycles of climate change or impediments to the ideologies of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change?
-Whether September 2017 Irma hurricane’s death toll of less than 100 represents a significant improvement over the 9,000 deaths in the Galveston, Texas hurricane in 1900, 2,500 deaths in the 1928 Florida hurricane, 1,200 deaths in the 2005 Katrina hurricane, or just more dramatic media reporting that implied that Irma exerted the greatest toll………EVER!?
-Whether the media in general can ever regroup and supply what it is supposed to supply, and that is impartial reporting devoid of twisted bias and plain dishonesty, except for the valuable democratic principle of free speech that nonetheless should exclusively reside within the formal editorial section of opinion, and not as “fact” elsewhere?
-Whether Saturn’s rings and their climatic 2017 scrutiny represent an engagement with science for expanded future galaxy exploration?
-Whether if there is life after death is it tax-free or just one of continued depreciation?
-Whether freedom is the greatest threat to freedom?
-Whether political correctness signals the impending death of free speech and ultimately the demise of democracy?
-Whether the current criminally negligent tendency of leniency toward crime by our Canadian judiciary will lead to the anarchy of widespread appeasement instead of justice; or worse vigilantism?
