    I dont see us moving off of either anytime soon, and I think drilling and the pipeline are a good thing.

    Just heard the James Inhofe is set to be the chair of the Senate Committee on the Environment.

    I guess we got the best Government corporate money can buy!
    Many Trump supporters have lots of problems, and those deplorables are bringing those problems to us. They’re racists. They’re misogynists. They’re islamophobic. They're xenophobes and homophobes. And some, I assume, are good people.

    there are several slants, one saying it's business as usual. The Globe is saying it's a vote of frustration against the system as much as a declarative about Obama's policies; it asks if American lawmakers will get the message or continue posturing. Silly question.

    My favorite, the French language La Presse, has the best slant. They say it is indeed a condemnation of Obama himself and his poor decision making skills, something I've not seen referenced before. But a side bar spells bad news for Canada's Stephen Harper who, of late, has tied himself to Obama's coattails on the world stage, we have troops in Iraq as a result. The Russians are testing our air defenses in the Arctic and, well it's never a good thing for Canadian politicians to get to connected to their US counterparts, Brian Mulroney sang a duet with Reagan and he's now considered a criminal....by his friends.
    They tie in several other choices Harper has made making him appear to a be a US lackey, which many prime ministers are, but it's not cool to look like it. Coming from a right wing French language paper it is bad news for the Conservative government who have to face the people next spring.

    Us being in Iraq will play with the rednecks in Alberta and Ontario, but it will be his death knell in BC, Quebec, and the Maritimes especially if we have another terrorist attack like last week.

    The business community is is "optimistic" that now, with the GOP in control of congress there may be some fiscal responsibility restored...I suggest there are being naive..

    But, to be honest, here's our top national story:

    Marilyn Monroe photo raffled for $5 fetches $38K - British Columbia - CBC News

    So, we're good.
    Greetings, F & L.

    Glad to see you around here again - missed your always interesting thoughts about life!

    Where else, except one of your posts, could we expect to see news about an old Marilyn Monroe photo that was once raffled for $5 fetching $38,000 recently - and your sense of humor ties it right in with the rest of the surprising events happening lately! ...

    that's a contender for the hall of fame of silly posts. Rich democrats pander to the working class (btw medical interns, and first year associates at major league law firms work hours that would kill most of the Unionista "alleged working class" types) when in reality they do everything possible to keep those people mired where they are
