Meanwhile, In Canada . . .

Since Donald Trump’s inauguration most Americans and many of our fellow global citizens have taken their need for new, noble and sometimes Instagram-worthy world leaders to a desperate level. I say desperate because as a Canadian I have watched most of the world swoon over our pompous Prime Minister in ways I could only call […]

Trump is a traitor, and democracy depends on recognizing that simple truth

D is for Donald. It’s also for: deluded, detrimental, deceitful, disgusting, demented, daft, dumb, disparaging, debauched, despot, dictator, degrading, deplorable, degenerate, discredited, disgraceful, damaging, dire, draft dodger, dirty, diabolical, destructive, duplicitous, disingenuous, dishonourable, disturbed, dangerous, depraved and deadly. T is for Trump. It’s also for TRAITOR. Last week we were witness to the unabashed, exhaustive testimony […]

The toddler-in-chief gets a time out

Finally! Just like any other mature (and sane) adult dealing with a spoiled, tantrum-throwing toddler, Nancy Pelosi was finally able to put Donald Trump in the timeout corner.

No, not Christmas, we’re waiting for Special Counsel Robert Mueller to wrap things up, and although he took another step in […]

It’s Not Funny Anymore

As a Canadian watching helplessly from north of the border, all I can do is scream at the laptop and the television and type “VOTE” over and over until my fingers cramp up. There used to be a time I could tell you the current political stories and climate for both countries; now, it’s more […]

Donnie’s ratings dive

My dream might actually be coming true. No, not $10 million and a private island dream, but the one where Trump’s biggest weapon — the media — is finally turning on him. His “60 Minutes” interview on Oct. 14 was, let’s just say, nothing to write home about; it was as flaccid as his fascist fiddle-diddle. And […]

Scary times indeed, Mr. Trump

Dear Mr. Trump: (Sorry if I offend you by not addressing you as president, but I’m pretty sure you’re not even a reasonable facsimile.) I heard you on the TV the other day saying how it’s a “scary time to be a young man in America” and I was thinking to myself, “fake news!” It’s always […]
