"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

We are not going to talk  any more about our election. it's over. I gather the younger generation turned out in numbers. I'm glad we have new members in our two ridings. I hope  lines of communication 
with the new members will web kept open and help them to represent the community.

i wish no harm to ousted members.  Losing is hard but that too shall pass. 

There is absolutely no point in suggesting  Justin, son of P.E.T. was not elected because of proven prowess. Though  nothing in evidence suggests he was. All that matters now is how he conducts himself going forward. A hundred and  eighty some unlikely Members of Parliament might prove hard to handle. 

Tom Mulcair will continue to do what he does  exceptionally well.

 Maybe the opportunist who bought the leadership of the Provincial Conservative will try the same stunt for the Federal Leadership. If Conservatives have any sense, considering recent experience, they will ychange the process. 

So now we can turn our attention south to the American Drama. If we listen we may learn.The second fiddle in the Republican race for the no,I nation is now first fiddle because he is leading in Iowa. aT this point j. The race it's not clear that me and much. 

The Donald is leading in Massachusetts but it's not meaningful because that State is predominantly

Bernie Sanders is the longest serving independent but he's a candidate for the Democratic nomination
And according to polls posted on Stephen Colbert's show is leading and pulling in massive crowds to his rallies where he keeps repeating the same mantra. iS that show business or political business. 

Only three candidates  remain for the Democratic nomination and one is an independent. 

Eleven candidates are still in the Republican race, neither of the front-runners is likely to last
which is equally  and inevitably true of eight others. 

We will continue to listen.

You pick up all sorts of rumours, plots and schemes reading about our neighbour to the south.
The one that caught my fancy was that the Trump character was just diverting the republicans for the
democrats and would pull out later leaving for former in a shambles. Works for me.

I agree that it is time to step back from our election. The Globe writers have been reading the entrails of the conservative
defeat but ignoring the fact that their own editorial board made one of the most bizarre endorsements ever convoluted. They lost a lot of respect from readers. A period of eating crow for lunch seems appropriate.

All the newspaers took a stand with a party in the celection. The same party each and every election , and choose the same colour over and over again. They've all eaten crow at one point or another.

8:53- Umm...No...Not yet. I can tell you who I wouldn't. Hillary for one, and Carson on the other side. Trump is still too entertaining to rule out.
