"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

Saturday 7 May 2016


I have decided about Don Lemon. 

He's a smooth operator. Regularly leads a panel on CNN and allows Trump followers to use
the opportunity to go on and on and on with unspeakable accusations against Hillary. 

Their task is to represent Trump's  position but apparently there isn't one of substance.

Until now, it's been difficult to conclude a simple lack of competence on Lemon's part. 

Last night,a regular feature recurred. He played a Trump clip. His smile lingered on when the camera returned. He is clearly entertained by Mr. Trump. 

This morning ,a story in the Globe and Mail notes, Don Lemon turned thumbs down on Larry Wilmore,
host comedian at the Washington Press Dinner with President Obama.

That clinched it for me. 

Don Lemon is a political journalist on CNN; the  World Wide News Channel.

From a position of influence, he supports the worst candidate of all time for the most powerful office in the world. 

Don Lemon is not who he should be. 

The forest fires of Fort McMurray are creating havoc in people's lives. The battle for control takes superhuman effort and it grows and rages still. 

The threat of Donald Trump as President has equal potential for catastrophe...man-made.

Piss on Trump and put out his fire.

Alberta fire officials say it could take months to extinguish the fire raging around Fort McMurray. To put things into perspective, Barrie, Ontario has an area of 100 square kilometres, our town's areas is 50 square kilometres, that of the wildfire 1,000 with a risk of doubling or expanding even more. There is nothing to stop it except heavy rain and that is not in the forecast.

As we sit comfortably in our homes this Saturday evening we cannot begin to imagine the fear and suffering and pain, the anxiety and the dread of those who have been ordered to abandon their homes and possessions for an uncertain future.

As those who have benefited from Canada-wide assistance during our most recent and serious natural calamity, an ice-storm, we should consider our community making a financial contribution to the Canadian Red Cross to help ease the present and future burden these displaced people are and will face.

I propose that our council donate $50,000, something just less than one dollar per capita of our population. This would be a generous example of communal leadership, a gesture that would demonstrate our national unity.

Folk in the US will make their decision and we can only watch in wonder and horror. So many are latching onto Trump based on sound bytes they think show him supporting their " entitlements ". It is an enormous game for him because he has no centre of reality. If it were not for the number of uncontrolled gun nuts running around, maybe there could be a happen ending. I still have moments of optimism.

wonder what Trump thinks of the new London Mayor being of a race Trump has labeled a source of terror.
He should look at his own country where natural citizens cause the most terror incidents.
