"Cowardice asks the question...is it safe? Expediency asks the question...is it politic? Vanity asks the question...is it popular? But conscience asks the question...is it right? And there comes a time when one must take a position that is neither safe, nor politic, nor popular but one must take it because it is right." ~Dr. Martin Luther King

To Lighten the Moment

  I guess your day wasn’t so good after all.


In church I heard a sweet elderly lady in the pew next to me
saying a prayer. It was so innocent and sincere that I just
have to share it with you:

"Dear Lord, This sure has been a tough four to five years.
You have taken my favorite actor Patrick Swayze, my favorite
musician Michael Jackson, my favorite Blues Singer Amy
Winehouse, my favorite actress Elizabeth Taylor, my favorite
singer Whitney Houston.....and now my favorite author Tom

I just wanted you to know that my favorite politicians are Stephen Harper,
Justin Trudeau, Dalton McGuinty, Kathleen Wynne, Mike Duffy, Pamela
Wallin, and Rob Ford.

Thank you, Evelyn. It is really tempting to add a couple of local names but I shall resist.

I find that the vast majority of politicians suffer from what I will call verbal constipation.

The pressure builds and builds and builds and then there is an eruption of non sequiturs that is all sound and fury, impossible to understand.

It is these that get the press coverage.

I think we might take the last name off that list. It seems tacky since the situation has changed. Not a whole lot of humour there anymore.

I was scouting for Father's Day cards this morning. What a bunch of drivel ! When I finally found a few possibilities, I realized that so many of the time-honoured words have lost their meaning. We have become a place of platitudes and political correctness lacking in humour and empathy.

Wishing death to someone because you disagree with their political stance is not funny and is bad taste.
