Toronto The Good

The 51st State

When I first returned to Toronto after an absence of twenty-plus years, I was stunned by the transformation that immigration had made. Canada – and the US – have always been immigrant nations… like me. I am an immigrant to both Canada and the United States.

Typically though, Immigration had higher standards and had not been as easy at it is today. At one time, you needed to prove your value and not be a burden to your newfound ...

Brett Kavanaugh, Junior and the Dems

Questions and Lies

Once upon a time in a land far away called Huntsville Alabama, a man married a widow with two sons, aged seven and ten. The younger son, we’ll call him “Junior” to protect the guilty, was a charming, good-looking, intelligent, precocious little pita who was the apple of his mother’s eye.

The Facebook Police

Consumer Confidence

And 401Ks

Thanks to a fellow who doesn’t know he’s been nicknamed “Beau’, I checked my 401K account today. I was stunned. It has increased 20% in the last twelve months. The fund that I am in is fairly aggressive with about 75% in the Stock Market and 25% in bonds and the like. A twenty per cent increase in value since Donald Trump got elected.

I have read the fantasies that we are reaping the benefits of Obama’s financial policies. Like ...
