The 2019 Canadian election was not only the ugliest one in memory, it was also a field guide on how NOT to run a campaign. ALL of them - Liberal, Conservative and NDP! Though one of them was, in the opinion of host Steven Kerzner, "brilliant" in how it used ugliness & disaster to make unwarranted gains.

You will hear many media discussions about the 3 main parties' campaigns. But no... Read more

There's no shortage of boutique hate groups for men to join - from racist Proud Boys to women-hating Incels. What's their frikkin' problem? Why are these men so full of rage, piss & vinegar? Is it crippling fear? Weren't hugged enough? Too much chess-club? Are they just a bunch of whiny asshats or is there something to their feelings of disenfranchisement?

Like Elton John sings, "Sorry seems to be the hardest word."

But does it make it hard to get hard too? Does apologizing impair a man's masculinity? Make you weak, effeminate, a loser?

Or is the ability to apologize a very "manly" quality?

And are there times when it's more admirable NOT to apologize?

Also, forgiveness. Is it 'girly-man' to grant forgiveness or the act of a ... Read more

Should apologized-for mistakes from 2 decades ago cost Trudeau re-election, when Conservative Party leader Andrew Scheer compared gay people to dogs in 2006 and has NOT apologized? Who are we punishing - Trudeau or the country?
