"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

I am back

Nearly a week of messing about ,ending with a couple of hours of technical service at the house. I'm almost afraid to believe everything is functioning properly.  I suspect it hasn't been for weeks now.

I can't imagine what life would be like  without the magic of instant communication. But maybe the break will prove to have been a good thing.

Quebec Premier Pauline Marois is still in the news with the Quuebec Charter of Something or Other.

I have something to say about that:

The Premier was criticized for  comments  she made when the G20  had met. A Liberal M.P.P. immediately demanded  an apology.

The Premier said U.K. is a tiny island.

It is.

She said multiculturism is the cause  of social unrest being experienced in the U. K.

It is.

The U.K. is a small island  that played a monumental role in world history.

Social unrest   has everything to  do with  class culture.

We dont have to look at the U.K. For that evidence.

A few months ago, we were   horrified by an atrocity that maimed and killed  innocents at the
Boston Marathon.

An anniversary of 9/11  is upon  us once again.  Will we ever forget?

A plane out of Vancouver, a bomb planted  on board, exploded off the coast of Ireland , bloowing to pieces hundreds of innocents . Literally...tiny babies in  their mother's arms.

Does anyone argue these appalling events  have nothing to do with difference in culture.

When three  young daughters and  an aunt are found dead in a  car submerged  in a lock near Peterborough and the father and brother are charged with their murder,  can the terrible facts of their deaths  be said to have nothing to  do with  a culture foreign to our own.

Yes it's true ,hundreds of thousands of  members of a myriad of cultures are among us with respect for the laws of our culture.

Does it mean we should never mention the inhuman fiends  who  do  not ?  And never intend to do so.

Does it  mean  we should turn a blind eye?

Does it mean  a person  with authority of elected office should  apologise for making statements of the obvious?

That we all know  are true.

I don't think so.

Good to have you back swinging. At least the Town Hall should be cooled if you encounter another marathon.
