Babies and Blockades. A Canadian Tale.

EDITOR’S NOTE: Sick of Donald Trump? So are we, so The Shinbone Star’s Canada Bureau Chief decided to give American readers a view of what’s been happening north of the border. Hey, it’s tough all over. By MADMEGSBLOG On Monday,  March 2, Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau sat through a Cabinet meeting while holding a […]

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 […]

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 […]

Got Milk?

Canada Prime Minister Justin Trudeau views himself as the young, hip chancellor of his generation. He doesn’t see that his demeanour and his indecisive political nature actually hurts our country nationally and globally. But who cares when everyone thinks you’re a selfie and social media darling? What does it matter that Canada’s healthcare and immigration […]

O Where, O Where Have the Democrats Gone?

Former President Barack Obama is in South Africa today where he spoke at one of his first high-profile outings since leaving office. His speech was about democracy and Nelson Mandela’s legacy of hope; of the “strange and uncertain times” and the “utter loss of shame among political leaders” who lie. He never used Donald Trump’s name, […]

All Hail The Orange King!

After their so-called ‘summit’ I realized maybe it wasn’t a joke. When Russian President Vladimir Putin said the United States should host the World Cup in 2026, I started thinking that if it happens, it will be with a different looking “free nation.” Never mind learning Spanish in schools, you better start brushing up on […]

Justin & Canada Need To Step Up

It’s been a shitstorm of cruel rhetoric and lie after lie for the president of the United States and his administration the past few weeks. I don’t need to go in to the details of the immigration nightmare that has been taking place in the U.S.; our TV’s and news feeds have been ripe with horrendous […]

Canada’s sorry . . . not!

EDITOR’S NOTE: Today we welcome a friend and loyal reader of The Shinbone Star from Canada. Author of MadMeg’s Musings on WordPress, Meg lives in Kamloops, B.C., about three hours east of Vancouver and comfortably north of the U.S.-Canada line. Here’s her view of the situation in the wake of the G7 Summit. By MAEGAN ELLIOTT EIFERT […]

Lyin’ Donnie throws another gutter ball

Just days ago, psychotic pathological liar Donald Trump admitted that he is indeed a liar. During a Missouri fund-raiser, the president said he told Canada’s Prime Minister Justin Trudeau that the United States had a trade deficit with his country, knowing that his claim was pure bullshit. That was his first gutter ball, but he soon […]

Oh Canada! We are most heartily sorry

Our country is being run by a pathological liar and con man. He needs a complete psychological examination, soon. Just days ago at a fundraiser, Donald Trump flatly admitted that he is a liar and proud of it. The president was in Missouri to raise money for that state’s attorney general, Josh Hawley, who is […]
