Illegal is not Legal

If I were still a Democrat I’d be hanging my head in shame,  witnessing the behavior of those who have taken up the baton, to lead the party of FDR and HST. Their post Civil War mien of lynching and KKK has been replaced by a disingenuous concern for their constituents, with unfulfilled promises designed for their vote.

A California, Democratic Legislator, has introduced the “Journalist Protection Act”

A California, Democratic Legislator, has introduced the “Journalist Protection Act”. It would make it a federal crime to “intentionally cause bodily injury to a journalist affecting interstate or foreign commerce in the course of reporting or in a manner designed to intimidate him or her from news gathering for a media organization”. Is that not the most convoluted of statements? Simple English please, how is the word affect being used here? And should a journalist be affecting interstate or foreign commerce?

Trudeau’s Speech in Edmonton

For the most part Trudeau actually said very little about anything. No comprehensive plan for doing anything to help Canadians on any stage. And he didn’t answer the one question that every Canadian wanted answered, though it was a two part question on the same topic.

Emotional support Gorilla

Can I take my emotional support Gorilla on a plane or train? I feel much safer as nobody picks on the little guy who has a pet Gorilla.

The recent refusal of an airline to allow a peacock as an emotional support animal has highlighted the use of animals to aid humans.

Do we really want to know?

There have been a number of articles recently relating to medical testing. The positive is the development of memory test to help indicate Alzheimer’s years earlier whereas the negative is the reluctance of men to have prostate cancer testing. However the question that many ask is do we want to know?

Remember when…?

Remember when the Democrats kept up their screed about Trump’s income tax papers? They did it before he was elected and they still come out with it occasionally even these days. And when anyone tries to explain to them that he said he would not release them as long as they were under review by the IRS, the same left-leaning morons smirk and remark, “It proves he has something to hide.”

Why the silence on the new anti-semitism?

After the Holocaust which saw the systematic annihilation of six million Jews by Hitler’s Nazi’s the UN General Assembly unreservedly condemned all manifestations of religious and ethnic intolerance with a resolution that would remind future generations of this horror to prevent such events ever happening again. This turning point in history prompted the world to say “never again.”

Governors of New York, Connecticut and New Jersey suing the Federal Government over the allowable Fe

It’s actually pretty funny if you think about it, the Governors of New York, Connecticut and New Jersey suing the Federal Government over the allowable Federal deduction for State taxes paid. I’m pretty sure there is no law that requires the federal government to write tax laws with individual states in mind. In fact, I’d bet money that to do so would be illegal.

Our country is dealing with the long time failure of our government to do its job

Our country is dealing with the long time failure of our government to do its job. We are faced with the results of an immigration policy that has been ignored for years. We have within our borders people who do not belong here, yet we recognize that many have been here for years, perhaps their entire lives, and only know this country.

I am not certain Canadians understand the extent of the Government tyranny

Dear Prime Minister,

If you have a moment you might be interested in seeing the clip on the facebook page.

While Mr Trump has his critics he knows he has a duty to protect the life of all US citizens including those in the womb and also to respect the worldview of pro-life Americans.

Let the worlds of fiction and fun speak the unspoken truths

The players of TV fiction were prominent at the recent Golden Globes telling of the world of harassment and abuse, previously perversely referred to as the casting couch. This was not new but only now were so many brave enough to speak up.

We have thankless NFL players “taking the knee” for causes that change with the wind

We have thankless NFL players “taking the knee” for causes that change with the wind.  The NFL players, owners and Roger Goodell should get down on their hands and knees and thank more than 620,000 Union soldiers who were wounded, maimed and died in the American Civil War freeing the slaves.
