Donald Trump's No Autocrat, Right?

As Donald Trump's presidency progresses, more and more commentators are starting to label him an autocrat. Despite my concerns about the man, I think such criticism is a tad harsh and uncalled for. After all, we have yet to see American soldiers goose-stepping on parade before a uniformed President Trump. And so far I haven't heard any reports of blatant imperialistic invasions of Canada or Mexico.

Why Doesn't Donald Trump Own A Dog?

Although he's vocalized a fondness for grabbing felines, Trump has demonstrated more restraint when it comes to lunging for a canine companion. So why is it so troublesome that Trump doesn't appear keen on dogs? To quote a Bill Murray meme that I've definitely re-pinned, "I'm suspicious of people who don't like dogs, but I trust a dog when it doesn't like a person."

Watching The Trump Debacle, I'm Grateful To Be Canadian

No, I am not an idealist who sees Canada through rose-coloured glasses. We're not perfect by any means. We have mistakes to correct and amends to make. We have work to do. But would we ever succumb to the toxic rhetoric of a sleaze ball like Donald Trump? Would we let a dangerous lunatic like him drag our country through the mud, making a mockery of everything we stand for, making us the laughing stock of the world, putting everything we hold dear at risk, turning us against each other, turning us against our allies?
