"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

The Americans are reaping the NRP/Republican harvest.

In better news, Trump did poorly in Kansas !! He thought he had that one.

A man in the throes of madness murdered the people in Orlando last Sunday and was himself shot as he planned he would be. 

In France, in the same week-end, authorities were  previously concerned about security from terrorist acts for the soccer tournament being held in Marseilles. The difficulty of screening  and  presence of thousands made the event a likely target .

No massacre of innocents took place in the French port. 

Instead , soccer hooligans, English versus Russian ran amok. Only the lack of guns kept life blood 
from running in the stands. 

In the midst of all the terrible news of the week-end, details of the  soccer mayhem were sketchy.

It seems however,  teams may be banned from participating if  " fans " can't keep their fists and 
boots and brutally hard heads to themselves.

Killed by terrorists, they would be sad victims. Families would be bereft. Nations would sink into fear and despair. Politicians would vow revenge. Later they would attend funerals and make strong but pious pronouncements because that's what's expected by the populace. Anything short of it would be unacceptable. 

If ,on the other hand ,they run amok in mob violence and do as much physical injury as possible to fans of a different nationality, be they Russian, Belgian or whatever, soccer authorities simply warn ,if they keep up the violence ,their team may  not be able to play the game any more. 

Is it possible, in the new order or lack thereoff, a connection exists between suicide bombers intent on Indiscriminate killing and mob violence at soccer games .

Is the same lack of discipline or absence of logic responsible by degrees for both phenomena ?

Pardon me for asking. Not being a Professor of World History and all that. But didn't the Fall of the Roman Empire have  something to do with failure of order from  top to bottom with guys like the bellicose billionaire springing into the breech.

Wouldn't that be a hoot?

Apparently The Trump is highly agitated over the fact that his hands are quite small. See picture in today's The Globe and Mail.

Some people have suggested that others of his body parts are also on the small side. This enrages him.

But he who lives by the word dies by the word and he has apparently not learned this lesson.

It is doubtful if he is capable of thinking before speaking. His President is alleged to be a "Muslim terrorist," or so he has said.

The appointment of Chris Ballard to the Wynne cabinet clearly and simply demonstrates just how bankrupt it is.

Couldn't agree more.

I agree but I have yet to find anyone that admits to voting for Ballard - someone must have.

He doesn't think before he speaks, it might be scarier if he does. I cringe everytime these so called politicians open up their mouths.

Trump fired his campaign guy. Some lower-down crowed about it on twitter and was gone within a couple of hours. Hopefully that means he is feeling a bit of stress instead of just causing it.
