Warning - Political opinion.

I got a large charge on this article that reported former Canadian PM, Brian Mulroney, advised Mexican reps to put a muzzle on Vincente Fox calling out Trump. It seems Mulroney has become a pal of The Donald. Besides "Lyin' Brian", Mulroney's other nick name while in office was "Blarney Bullroney". I guess he & Trump do have a lot in common.


Hey, I reported on this a couple of months ago....but that's OK: it bears repeating.
Interesting to see last night's episode of Ken Burns' "Vietnam", where Spiro Agnew, (another conservative fellow-traveller who took cash in plain brown envelopes) was shown criticizing Vietnam war protesters for disloyalty to the flag and to the country.
The parallels to today's news were astounding. Agnew was more concerned about the flag than he was about the millions of bodies piling up - just as Trump is more concerned about the flag and the anthem than he is about racial injustice. Funny that Trump wants athletes to be fired for having the nerve to kneel during the anthem, but is just "thinking about" what to do with HHS Secretary Price who blew some $400,000 of taxpayers' money jaunting around in private jets. But then the athletes are black and....well....Price isn't.
