Trump Free

After more than a hundred days of the Biden presidency, Donald Trump seems like a faded memory. Or perhaps a nightmare we have all woken up from. It is amazing how quiet he has been since his banning back in January by the social media platforms he was using. Maybe traditional media is finding things […]

Anyone Else?

Every time I look at the news, it is all COVID-19. Everyone seems fixated on it. There is no other topic of conversation. I must admit, I think I’m getting a little bored with it all. But when society is locked down, there doesn’t seem to be much else to talk about except the virus. […]

Does It Matter?

The second impeachment trial of Donald Trump is underway in the US Senate, and all the experts are saying he will be acquitted. Not because he isn’t guilty, but because most Senators will vote according to political loyalties rather than the evidence presented. Because of that I haven’t been following the proceedings beyond reading the […]

The Next Governor General

The job is open, and I want it. Who wouldn’t? It pays $300,000 annually, with housing included. Canada needs a new Governor General, the previous one having resigned under a cloud. On paper she looked great, but there were problems. No need to go into them here. On paper I don’t look anywhere near as […]

Inauguration Day Reflections

Some random thoughts as Joe Biden is sworn in today as President of the United States. I’ve been thinking about the day, and the challenges the new president faces. Each paragraph is a stand-alone today – read as many or as few as you like. Joe Biden assumes office as President of the United States […]

Donald Trump Is History

Are you surprised to be alive today? To discover the world is relatively peaceful? Today is the last full day of Donald Trump’s presidency. Go ahead, admit it, four years ago you were certain he was going to start a war.  Maybe the last war that would destroy life on earth. Yet he didn’t. The […]

This Is Amerika

The politicians and commentators wringing their hands at last week’s coup attempt in Washington were for the most part united in their protestation that “this is not America.” They were wrong. This is what America has become. The ideals are there, perhaps, but the reality is a nation divided with no end in sight unless […]

Why Trump Lost

Yes, they are still counting the votes, but even Donald Trump knows in his heart he lost the 2020 US presidential election. Not because it was fraudulent but for one reason: COVID-19. There are three reasons COVID-19 was fatal to the Trump presidency. He might have managed re-election despite one or two of them, but […]

The Next President

The election results tell us Joe Biden will be the next president of the United States. Are you sure about that? And I’m not talking about the ongoing legal challenges the Trump team has mounted to try and overturn the results. I don’t see much hope for success there. Which may mean that Joe Biden […]

While The World Waits…

I spent most of Wednesday with CNN playing in the background as I worked. I wanted to know who was the winner in the US presidential election. I still want to know who won, but I am not listening anymore. I’ll find out when an announcement is made. Maybe Friday. At first I thought Donald […]
