You May Conduct The Commander To History

Rory J. Koopmans, B. Admin., #6, 14504-108 Avenue, Edmonton, Alberta T5N 1G8

June XXVIIth, MMXVII

Hon. Dave Eggen, B. Ed., MLA, Minister of Education, New Democratic, Edmonton-Calder

Dear Dave:

History comes alive at any point, just pick a day, any day. With this being the day in MCMLXXIII (1973) that Sir Roger Moore first headlined as Her Majesty's Royal Navy Commander & Secret Agent Licensed To Kill for Her Majesty's Secret Service James Bond in "Live & Let Die." Especially poignant now that he has departed this life after a valiant struggle with cancer & had his funeral. Always pay attention to someone who commands respect, such as this great actor & UNICEF children's ambassador who was always at the top of his game!

In MCML (1950), North Korean troops reached Seoul, the South Korean capital & then U.S. President Harry S. Truman, Democratic-Missouri had to send in Air Force/Navy reinforcements. Sounds like the same game of brinkmanship that current U.S. President Donald J. Trump, Republican-New York is facing today over North Korea & their rather hostile missile tests, & they say history doesn't "repeat" itself.

The "Etten-Lur", the first airplane flight in The Netherlands takes place in MCMIX (1909) by Belgium Count De Lambert.


A "Commander"ing Screen Presence Was The Rather "Saint"ed Mister Moore,

Number 10: Pelham-Holles

Rory J. Koopmans, B. Admin., #6, 14504-108 Avenue, Edmonton, Alberta T5N 1G8

June XXIVth, MMXVII

Hon. Dave Eggen, B. Ed., MLA, Minister of Education, New Democratic, Edmonton-Calder

Dear Dave:

Taking over for his dead younger brother Henry as Prime Minister from The House Of Lords cannot have been an easy task for The Right Honourable The Viscount His Grace The Duke The Lord The Marquess Baron Baronet Earl Thomas Pelham-Holles. Nevertheless Tommy acted "brilliantly" in the upper crust manner when handed this unexpected job & is teaching the pages about war stratagems & how crazy & unpredictable certain attacks might be. A very similar situation to the United Kingdom Islamic bombing incidents in today's modern era (& worked upon by the hiding farce that is current PM Theresa May.)

"War could only happen now if Frederick the Great unilaterally attacked Austria. Which given the clear disparity in numbers, he would be a "madman" to do so."

IVth Prime Minister,

The Gorgeous & Talented Mrs. Aheer

Rory J. Koopmans, B. Admin., #6, 14504-108 Avenue, Edmonton, Alberta T5N 1G8

June XXIIIrd, MMXVII

Hon. Dave Eggen, B. Ed., MLA, Minister of Education, New Democratic, Edmonton-Calder

Dear Dave:

Your Education Critic counterpart in Her Majesty's Loyal Official Opposition, the sassy, stunning, smart, stylish, savvy, self-confident, superb, & strong Leela Aheer, MLA, Wildrose, Chestermere-Rocky View is right about the idiocy of the progressives at The City Of Edmonton blocking the sale of the land site at XXXVIIIth Avenue & XXXVIIIth Street. I like Mrs. Aheer, she has got spunk! City Of Edmonton Manager Linda Cochrane & Edmonton Public School Board (EPSB) members, teachers unions & socialistic special interest groups want the sale delayed just so that they can spend (piss) away more money "studying" the problem!

Well why in the hell do these namby pamby pseudo commie pinkos need to study anything? The demand is there & the Punjabi language is a superb addition to the languages & dialects of this great Dominion Of Canada! I should think that for Canada's CLth (150th) Birthday that Mayor Don Iveson & City Councillors running for reelection would want to approve this site as quickly as possible to lock in the Punjabi & ethnic vote. But like anything else with City administrators we have to have a "discussion." When I hear the Mayor say the word discussion, I sure as hell know one thing is for sure: taxes by the left on Edmonton City Council are going up yet again (which students & their families cannot afford.) My argument is made for me Dave in the fact that you & Her Majesty's Government are lowering & even waving some school fees (directly because of the costs of your stupid carbon tax). If Principal J. S. Sidhu of Headway School & his backers have the money & it won't cost the City a dime out of pocket, in fact the seller would make a clear profit (& the City a fortune in yearly property taxes/utility revenues), lets get this sale done when? I say NOW, NOW, NOW! The City wants a year to "study" the matter, well why not meet the Punjabi community halfway & study it for VI (6) months so the new school site can be set up faster & thus provide the very best for our most wonderful Punjabi students & staff!

The Artist Currently Known As Jennie Vegt

Rory J. Koopmans, B. Admin., Woodcroft (Westmount) Public Library Terminal #VI, Edmonton, Alberta

June XXth, MMXVII

Hon. Dave Eggen, B. Ed., MLA, Minister of Education, New Democratic, Edmonton-Calder

Dear Dave:

I must say that Edmonton Public Library (EPL) & its featured oil on canvas paintings by local artisan & The City Of Edmonton "artist-in-residence" Miss Jennie Vegt is a great triumvirate. The portraits are very modern, stylish, contemporary, & certainly communicate aspects of Miss Jennie's life & life in general. The team up by EPL & Miss Jennie makes the portraits & the images come alive! Which is what many students studying art wish to achieve once they put their creative talents to work!

June XVIIth, MMXVII

Hon. Dave Eggen, B. Ed., MLA, Minister of Education, New Democratic, Edmonton-Calder

Dear Dave:

Not wimping out & hiding for phony "security" reasons like current PM Theresa May over the horrid London apartment fire is The Right Honourable Henry Pelham. Hank tells students at the visiting the Commons chamber about the struggles of parliamentary decorum in the House Of Commons & how they should strive to make it better if they get elected. That it is a place to navigate & deftly suck up to others to get things done, just like any other place in life


"The House Of Commons is a great unwieldy body, which requires great Art & some Cordials to keep it loyal."

IIIrd Prime Minister,

Rory

Editor's Note: Notice Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth The IInd tagged along with her grandson His Royal Highness Prince William: The Duke Of Cambridge to visit fire victims, they weren't hiding. They were on top of things, getting the job done, just as she has done so IV LXV (65) plus years without fail, God Save The Queen!

This Is Not Fair!

Rory J. Koopmans, B. Admin.,  #6, 14504-108 Avenue, Edmonton, Alberta T5N 1G8

June XVIth, MMXVII

Hon. Dave Eggen, B. Ed., MLA, Minister of Education, New Democratic, Edmonton-Calder

Dear Dave:

To lose Alberta Venture Magazine Publisher Ruth Kelly at just 60 by suicide is a rather tragic blow, especially for her good hubby Larry & her family. I met her a couple of times & she did a superb article on my dad Joe when he was retiring from his furniture store Koopmans' Furniture & selling out.

It is a lesson that we cannot make fun of those with mental health & depression issues. I myself see an autism psychiatrist & social worker due to my Aspergers Syndrome or "high functioning" autism, I've never been suicidal, but I sure wouldn't judge Ruth if I had known her better but instead tried to encourage her to seek mental help.

Just a few months ago it was one quarter of a century since we lost the great Barbara Frum to leukemia at just 54. For journalism & publishing students, it is hard to see such quality ladies with such skill go. As both Babs & Ruthie were beyond excellent & stellar in their contributions to their communities & society with their graciousness & integrity & frankly had so much more to contribute!

Extreme Condolences To Ruth's Family & Publishing Friends,

Rory

"Transit"ory Authority

Rory J. Koopmans, B. Admin., #6, 14504-108 Avenue, Edmonton, Alberta T5N 1G8

June XIIIth, MMXVII

Hon. Dave Eggen, B. Ed., MLA, Minister of Education, New Democratic, Edmonton-Calder

Dear Dave:

I have to give you & Alberta Education, as well as municipal transit systems credit/rebate for working in tandem to get municipal transit rebates in play. In this way, students of a lower income level will have an equal chance at getting to their educational institutes in a safe & reliable manner on public transit. Thus they are not deprived of a quality education just because they are of a lesser means!

Number 10: Compton

June Xth, MMXVII

Hon. Dave Eggen, B. Ed., MLA, Minister of Education, New Democratic, Edmonton-Calder

Dear Dave:

Newly minted Federal Conservative Leader Andrew Scheer must be channeling his "inner Compton" because like Andy, The Right Honourable The Viscount The Lord Baron Earl Sir Spencer Compton was a Speaker Of The House Of Commons before obtaining the Prime Ministership (as Andy hopes to do in MMXIX.) He always hated when MPs bitched & tried to stress him out about being interrupted, this occurred even when the interruptions were for procedural reasons. He had to berate an uncooperative MP in front of school children in the Commons Chamber (much like Speakers today do & have done since the start of parliamentary tradition) for not being respectful of Roberts Rules Of Order.


"No sir, you have a right to speak, but the House have a right to judge whether they will here you."

Transporting A Landing Party

June IXth, MMXVII

Hon. Dave Eggen, B. Ed., MLA, Minister of Education, New Democratic, Edmonton-Calder

Dear Dave:

I found it terrible that a person texted into 630 AM Ched Radio's "Morning News With Bruce Bowie" & said "are school zones really necessary: how many people have died in accidents in Alberta in the last year?" Why don't they try telling that to the parents of the poor young lad killed here in St. Albert yesterday while riding his bicycle with a van?!

Also, earlier in the week, a Red Deer school bus driver crashed and was caught being drunk off her ass while driving XVIII (18) students. Now I don't give a horse's ass if she dies, she can burn in hell, but if any of those students had been hurt or killed, how bad would she feel & how many family's lives would she destroy?

Is It Really Worth That Satisfaction For Booze To Possibly Hurt Or Kill Others?!: I Don't Think So,

Number 10: Walpole

June IIIrd, MMXVII

Hon. Dave Eggen, B. Ed., MLA, Minister of Education, New Democratic, Edmonton-Calder

Dear Dave:

Prime Ministers of England & the reconstituted United Kingdom have always had an interesting flair & things to say, whether leading His or Her Majesty's Governments. Prime Minister The Right Honourable The Lord Earl Sir Robert Walpole points out to history students that its supposed facts can be manipulated to suit a certain cause. Also, that they should be careful in their research to get the true facts beIV getting too off track in their studies.

"Oh, do not read history, for that I know must be false."

In your educational rewrite, you should definitely listen to all points of view, not just those who espouse a more socialist friendly view. Christian & other alternative educational structures & groups may have rewrite ideas that could indeed be incorporated into your final course outlines, once they are set for release.

Edit This,

Rory
