Annecdotes from Shane Leslie Mattison.

Thank you for your greeting Lyman. I enjoyed listening to you on Roku yesterday on the Survival America Network. You reminded me of what is best about America. I'm half American: my mother's family was from Spencer Iowa area which is east of Sioux City...

Grampa's wife, my Gramma Cora was from Nebraska and she was Aunt to actress Jane Wyman, who was Ronald Reagan's first wife as I'm sure you know, so its a small world, isn't it?

I went to Liberal and spoiled Stanford, though we weren't nearly as Liberal as U.C. Berkeley! And at least we have the good conservative 'Think Tank:" the Hoover Institute, where I saw Alexander Solzhenitzen one day: I walked by him on the sidewalk (my claim to fame!) where there was just the two of us approaching and then passing each other! I didn't interrupt his train of thought, I figured it was best that way. lol

My Dad's family was from England in the Cotswolds, a very lovely part of England to say the least. Dad became a Conservative Member of Parliament in Canada for over two decades, and was there long-serving Justice Critic during the long silly years of Canada's Obama by the name of Pierre Elliott Trudeau! Dad was a Goldwater, Nixon, Haig, and a Reagan fan. He met once Gerald Ford in D.C. on an early morning jogg in the park area of where they were holding a Inter-Parliamentary Conference. Dad was not shy, so he walked over to the POTUS and started an early morning chat with him. He liked him too!

Another interesting antidote was that Dad was invited to the LBJ Ranch, because he had gotten Dean Rusk's daughter and girlfriend out of a Banff jail one night and succeeded in quashing legally a marijuana possession charge. Canada's Minister of Justice called Dad because he was a good lawyer and the offence was a part of his constituency. I've never done much of a search on that to see if there was any knowledge the Media had of that day! The judge threw the charge out in the interest of Canada - U.S. relations and national security! lol. 

My Dad reached the front bench of Parliament but like Mr Goldwater was excluded from power's inner circle because of his honest directness with everything, which he was forcefull about it too and people are uncomfortable with that. So he was an unhappy man kind of like Enoch Powell, the Conservative in the UK who warned them about the trouble they were creating by letting in all the Muslims in Britain. So he too was shunned.

So I thought you might find those anecdotes interesting. I wish you a great long weekend; we have one here too.

Yours Truly,

Shane Leslie Mattison (Woolliams, my Dad's name was Eldon Mattison Woolliams, which you can google him. Our 'CBC' such a lefty outfit like the BBC - that they have kept public a clipping where Dad is being interviewed a long time ago by David Frum's mother Barbara Frum - a flaming liberal like Nancy Pelosi! In the interview my Dad says in a now archaic way that the "gays" can be sent somewhere to be "fixed" - that its possible they could be cured! Which is true, but it was politically incorrect then let alone now which is why the CBC keeps the clip - to make Conservatives look like "barbaric red-necks" - same old, same old eh?

And then some bits of everything accidentally encountered other bits of everything and formed some new kinds of everything.
And then some bits of everything accidentally arranged themselves into self-replicating bits of everything.
