"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

In a lengthy article in the New York Times dated May 21, 2016 and headed KEY G.O.P. DONORS STILL DEEPLY RESIST DONALD TRUMP'S CANDIDACY, one frequent donor states:

...he considered Mr. Trump a dangerous person.

"He's an ignorant, amoral, dishonest and manipulative, misogynistic, philandering, hyper-litigious, isolationist, protectionist blowhard." He said he might give to Hillary Clinton instead, describing her as "the devil we know."

"I really believe our republic will survive Hillary.

Charles G. and David H. Koch, the country's two most prolific conservative donors are not expected to back Mr. Trump, and their advisers have been scathing in private assessments of Mr. Trump's candidacy and his political agenda.

Walter Buckley, who said he would be willing to contribute to the Trump campaign or to a super PAC supporting him, said he remained upset about Mr. Trump's mockery of Senator John McCain, Republican of Arizona, for having been captured in Vietnam. 

"I don't think anything that anybody's ever said on the political front has bothered me more than that," Mr. Buckley said.

It is mind-boggling to understand how Trump can be a serious contender for the position of Miss Universe judge after the above damning description, and he owns the pageant.

It doesn't appear to matter if the governing party is one or another or another, the bureaucracy is still a disgrace of inactivity and buck-passing.

The lead story in today's The Globe and Mail is headlined DISABLED VETERANS FINDING DOORS SHUT TO JOBS IN FEDERAL CIVIL SERVICE

One particularly disgusting paragraph states:

"Questions about what can be done to improve the participation rate of veterans in the civil service were put recently to Mr. Hehr, Veterans Affairs Minister. His staff told The Globe and Mail to direct them instead to Judy Foote, the Public Services and Procurement Minister, whose staff redirected them to the Public Service Commission, which did not respond."

The next time the Prime Minister takes a swing or a bump or a nudge at members on the floor of the Common House, he should first have made the rounds and personally asked the questions on behalf off disabled veterans so that this run-around STOPS HAPPENING.
