I’ve often said that the USA resembles ancient Rome. A cynic will say that under the guise of democracy what we really have is unequal justice. One set of rules for the rich and another for the poor. But the Trump raid proves it’s not quite that simple. There’s also infighting and political treachery. Maybe… Read More Opinion | The Trump Raid – Watching the ancient Romans battle it out… Today!

Yes, folks, the summer is winding down. In Canada, we have a long weekend and then Tuesday things go back to normal… err the new normal. Not having a cottage anymore means I don’t have to stand out on the rocks, wresting with a block and tackle, pulling up boats out of the water. In… Read More We’re all going back to school some way or another…
Watching today I couldn’t believe how pathetic this ‘show’ was. The apparently most powerful man on Earth reading cue cards like some challenged 5th grader trying to master what we called “flashcards” back in junior school. Seriously? After about half an hour of sheer amazement, I began to get the impression that the whole thing… Read More Hooray! Joe Biden can read cue cards. But who’s writing them? | Opinion
