Imagine that your children spend their day collecting trash so they can get some warmth in the bitter night. A short story that happens every day in front the eyes of the world.

With the report today that only 25 Republicans in the Senate and House acknowledge Biden's win, I want to reiterate that calling them "cowards" is too generous and obscures the much more dangerous reality of the modern GOP.

I fear this will be Trump’s last swipe at Trudeau: Release Meng without linking it to release of the two Michaels. Beijing then continues to hold them, as “proof” they were never hostages in the first place. Cda left swinging in wind after expensive 2 yrs defending US rule of law

Deeply honoured and humbled by the trust has placed in me as I take on the role of Foundations president. I am committed to work with George to ensure faithfulness to his vision and values for the Foundations.

Very promising. If this happens and Canada rids itself of Meng and China returns our two hostages, I do hope the next step is to eject the loathsome Chinese ambassador and all China state employees.

Life in 2020: I wake up when I wake up. My commute is about 7 steps, 11 if I refill my coffee. I have a few Zoom calls, but those often get bumped. No one asks why. We’re all in the same boat—no need to explain. We can talk tomorrow. Sometimes we even do

.: In 2020, 'seizing the day' basically means you got dressed. Maybe you even stepped outside for a bit. Anything over and above that is just a bonus.

It used to be hard to cultivate a reputation as a contrarian, but thanks to Twitter being a non-stop festival of insanity you can now do it exclusively with banal opinions like “Barack Obama is smart about electoral politics.”

He’s living the old Seinfeld joke about George working so hard to keep his UI benefits without looking for work that if they knew how hard he was working they’d give him a raise.

If Giuliani is doing all this - flying all over, debasing himself on TV daily, filing hopeless appeal after appeal - just to earn a pardon, I have to respect the hustle. I’m serious. He’s 76 hrs old and he’s running and gunning like a coked-up 23 yr old car salesman.

I was thinking about that, too. I don't follow Quebec politics close enough to understand his rating, which has been rock steady. But Kenney's and Pallister dropping 20 and 16 points respectively since June, suggesting a very strong correlation to Covid.

Perhaps not coincidentally, according to the same pollster, PM Trudeau's approval rating is 49% - putting him over on the right side of that chart with Kenney et al.

Sincerely curious to see if there's a point where Kenney and Pallister's approval rating drops far enough that they pause and consider the possibility their approach to (not) fighting covid may be the wrong one. 🤔

5 yrs ago if *any* retired US general called for martial law and military control of elections it would be stunning. Now the President's former Nat. Sec. Advisor does this and no one flinches. America has slipped so far down the hill. It will take a generation to get back up.

Well, on Discovery it’s revealed a galaxy wide event called “The Burn” destroyed every starship in the fleet, killing millions. So, you’re right.

Length of the redaction would also fit “Gates” (vs “Papadopoulos”, for example)
