Welcome back United States of America! Wow! As a Canadian, who has been glued to the television and watched so much of the election coverage and Obama election victory and now Obama’s Inauguration, I just have to say, Congratulations U.S.A!
“Green party leader Elizabeth May cast the federal campaign in apocalyptic terms Sunday, urging complacent Canadians to turn off CNN and tune in to the importance of their Canadian vote.” Geez, last election, were we all so busy watching CNN that we didn’t get out to vote? Huh? Eh?
I am a Canadian woman just riveted to the Democratic National Convention (DNC) and its unfolding change-making history in action. Hillary Clinton put 18 million cracks in the glass ceiling blazing a new trail for young girls and for women.Barack Obama , having been acclaimed the party’s Presidential Candidate today, leaving many African-Americans, including African-American men crying, was an amazingly moving moment in American History.
Barack Obama has chosen Joe Biden for his running mate – to be his Vice President. While there are a lot of positive things being said about this choice I wonder how many of Hillary Clinton’s supporters are only going to be further disenfranchised by this choice. And, by the news that apparently Clinton wasn’t even vetted in consideration of being on the short list of candidates for Obama’s running mate.
While I was harsh with my opinion and my shock at the whole story of Duane "Dog" Chapman and his use of the "N"-word after seeing him on Larry King Live tonight I forgive him. I have compassion for him. I saw his pain. I believe that he is an uneducated man with a very [...]
I am a Canadian who longs for a restoration of sanity to the leadership of The United States of America. Let me make it clear, I am not against the U.S. just its current corrupt out-of-control Government. I recognize the mighty power of the United States to lead this world. But right now the Bush [...]
In checking back at amazon.com today for other reasons I noticed that the information has been up-dated for the book, "if I DID IT". It is now listed without O.J. Simpson’s name anywhere in the title or credits. It is now (not sure if it was before or not) advertised this way at amazon.com: If [...]
Bravo to Jenny McCarthy who has written a memoir, “Louder Than Words” – A Mother’s Journey about Healing Autism – the story of her journey with her son, Evan, who was diagnosed with autism. I’ve recently seen her on Oprah, The View, Live with Regis and Kelly, and CNN’s Larry King. She is raising a tremendous amount of awareness about autism and at the same time giving parents greater hope than most ever thought was possible.
The statistics now reflect that 1 in 150 children (still many more boys than girls) will be diagnosed with autism. It is an epidemic. The cause is much argued about. The reality as to whether or not it can be cured is equally as contentious.
I was watching a Glenn Beck show on CNN’s Headline News Network recently and found his judgment of Rosie O’Donnell to be not only hypocritical but also very sad considering that Beck’s own life has not been one without its challenges.
I found this fascinating given that Beck was criticising O’Donnell for her anger at the Bush Government and for seeing 9/11 as a conspiracy and for “seeing conspiracies everywhere. O’Donnell who has not said she thinks 9/11 was a conspiracy but who has reiterated often on her blog, “I have questions.” Beck’s criticism of what he refers to as O’Donnell’s anger was right after Beck himself had ranted for over 15 minutes at the beginning of this particular show about the loss of common sense in the United States and in the government and justice system in the U.S. Does Mr. Beck know how much he yells at from his “pulpit”?
When will it ever be enough for O.J. Simpson? Enough attention that is. Ever? Seems that Simpson just couldn’t go away. He got away with murder and even that doesn’t seem to have taught him a thing. He still thinks he is above the laws that the rest of us must live by. Whatever O.J. [...]
