This Quote was Attributed to HL Menken, who was one of America’s Great Political Writers, a Tremendous Editorialist, Satirist & a Purveyor of the Truth . . . Who Didn’t Care Who His Writing Offended . . .
After Monday Night’s (October 21, 2019) Canadian Election Results, this HL Menken Quote about the Intelligence of the American People . . . APPLIES NO LESS COMPLETELY TO CANADA & CANADIANS.
In My Non-Defense Of The Conservatives . . . Who in my Opinion Took a Bath Monday Night, even though they Won more Seats in 2019 than they Won 4-Years Earlier, the Conservatives had a Leader (Andrew Scheer) who was (is) as Incompetent, Un-Charismatic & Un-Qualified as one can Imagine . . . to Run for Anything.
As A Matter Of Fact . . . Mitt Romney Would Have Been A Step-Up To Scheer.
I Campaigned For The Federal Conservatives. I Donated Money to the Conservatives. And even though I had ZERO Use for Andrew Scheer, which I Made Public, I Supported Scheer Nonetheless, as the Leader of the Conservative Party . . . BUT THAT’S DONE, DONE & DONE.
As Far As I’m Concerned . . . Until the Conservative Party of Canada Chooses a Real Leader from Outside Of Politics – The Conservatives Can Blow It Out Their Ass.
Scheer . . . Who Is 40-Years Old, has been in Government, Living On The Government Dole Since He Was 25-Years Old. So how does that Qualify Scheer to Know how to Make Real Business Decisions? Did Scheer ever have to Make a Payroll? Did Scheer ever have to Wait & Beg for a Receivable? Or Understand how Real People Feel, who aren’t Living High on the Hog on Taxpayers’ Money . . . Who Struggle Just To Make Ends Meet?
Alberta & Saskatchewan have Always been Conservative Provinces, even though Both of these Provinces “Flirted” with Parties on the LEFT . . . to their Chagrin.
If these Two Provinces (Flyover) Decide to Separate from Canada, which is a Possibility, because they have for the Longest Time Been Ill-Treated by Ottawa, Including Ontario, Quebec & British Columbia . . . Anne & I Would Most Probably Move To Alberta.
I Support Ontario Conservative Leader Doug Ford, who Isn’t Eloquent. There’s no Razzmatazz about Doug Ford. The LEFT of Ontario Despise this Man because he Won’t Play their Game. Ford Says it like it is. Ford Does what has to be Done & Does Whatever he can get away with when he Can. And by the Next Ontario Provincial Election, Ford will Probably get his Ass-Kicked by the LEFT – But I Will Support Doug Ford Anyway.
First & Foremost . . . Doug was a Businessman & Entered Politics as a Toronto City Councilor, because of his Late Brother, Business Partner & Former Toronto Mayor Rob Ford.
And as a Businessman, Doug Ford Knows What all the Career Politicians Will Never Know . . . How To Successfully Manage An Enterprise With Your Own Risk & Money.
I won’t even Pretend to Know or even Guess what the Strategies are behind what’s Happening in Brexit, Hong Kong & with the Kurds Versus the Turks or Vice Versa, but I will tell you this . . .
WWI Erupted . . . Because of the Unexpected & Unanticipated Assassination of the Archduke Ferdinand in Sarajevo. President Trump says he’s Bringing home the Troops. Why should we Believe Him? Could it just be a Ruse for President Trump to Suck-In Whomever? I Don’t Know . . . & Neither Does Most Anyone Else.
In Addition to all the Behind the Scene Fighting & Subterfuge between the Worldwide Purveyors of Socialism/Communism, and the CATACLYSMIC Advance of Communist China, and the ever more Evident Russian Powerplay, and How the American LEFT is Attempting to Carry-Out a Coup D’état Against a Duly Elected President (Trump), while Flooding (Overwhelming) the American System with Illegal Immigrants, and Creating a Non Existent Race-War . . . Only God & President Trump Know Where We’re Headed.
There is No Question in my Mind, that an All-Out War is Right Around the Corner, which very well might be Triggered by the Turks & the Kurds, which could Force the Iranian Hand, Hezbollah, Hamas and the Russians who could ill-Afford a Direct Confrontation with the Americans, Not to Mention Israel, Saudi Arabia and Perhaps even the Egyptians, who have Plenty to Deal with Vis-à-Vis the Moslem Brotherhood.
Even More Important . . . Maybe President Trump’s Strategy is to Allow the Russians to Spend their own Blood & Treasure to get Bogged-Down to Deal with an Issue the Americans No Longer Want any Part-Of in the Middle East.
THINK ABOUT THIS . . . Why do you Think the World, Specifically the EU, is so much Against Brexit, since there should be Nothing Stopping the EU from one on one Trade Deals with the British – Guaranteed It’s Not About Ireland.
Between President Trump’s American Nationalism (America First) . . . and a United Kingdom (UK), Free from the EU, America & England will Deliver the Equivalent of a Spear to the Heart of the Dream of a One-World Socialist Global Government, which is more than Reason Enough for the Global LEFT to Become Apoplectic & Dangerous.
SO . . . Before I Spend all my Effort Lamenting the Canadian Election – I have to Look at the Bigger Picture & See that the Minority-Vote Election of Trudeau, and the Abject Failure of Andrew Scheer . . . In Comparison To The Big Picture, is akin to the Importance of a Pimple on the Ass of an Elephant.
Best Regards . . . Howard Galganov
