Trump is a toddler

I question whether or not the G7 is worth the cost and trouble.

On the upside, in 2018 a $3bn pledge for girls’ education was announced.

AND I’m pleased some world leaders stood up to the irrational egomaniac. You have to call out this kind of stupidity. Even if you suffer consequences. Trump won’t be around forever.

REDress Project – missing and murdered Indigenous women

Half of the women murdered in Canada are aboriginal.

The REDress Project began in 2010 as a way to remember the more than 1,000 missing and murdered Aboriginal women and girls in Canada. And to prevent tragedies like those in future.

The educational program has reached Parksville and Qualicum Beach, B.C.

I saw them at Parksville City Hall.

The REDress Project is running in conjunction with the United Nation’s 16 days of Activism Against Gender-Based Violence.

American politics went batshit crazy starting with Newt Gingrich

I ignored American politics until 2004 when — inexplicably — George W. Bush was elected for a second term after being unbelievably bad in his first term.

What the Hell was going on?

Jim VandeHei explains why the USA has such extreme politics in 2017: Newt GingrichFox News (1996), MSNBC, CNN, Facebook and later Twitter, Sarah Palin and finally Trump.

Jon Stewart and Stephen Colbert documented the idiocy.

It’s easy to say Americans deserve the politicians they have.

My fear is that other nations will evolve in the direction of the American way. 😦
