The vast majority of citizens, particularly those enamored of Trump, have had to deal with difficult bosses, bosses who treat their employees like dirt. And because of those workplace experiences, they have little patience for those who treat their employees with disdain.

The five finalists in this year's contest for the world's best non-fiction book in English on foreign affairs happen to focus on two themes that preoccupy the White House: Islamism as a disruptive political force and the coexistence of an authoritarian Russia with an increasingly militarized U.S. government.

Can President Trump's Plan Revive U.S. And Canadian Economies?

Assuming he makes good on his promise to spend big on infrastructure projects as a means of boosting the U.S. economy, two possible outcomes exist. Which of those happens -- or more likely, what mix of the two -- depends on a fundamental question. Is the U.S economy operating at or near full capacity?

The last eight years have hardly been America's finest. Through it all, however, this family has stood tall -- resolute, proud, dignified. Never letting on how hurt, how insulted, how devastated, how disappointed and yes, how justifiably angry they must have been, may still be, may always be.

It's Only A Matter Of Time Before We Get President Pence

Does anyone really believe he (Trump) gives a damn? That he's in it for anything other than his ego, the good of his brand, his businesses, investments and, lest we forget, his wallet? Does anyone really think he'll last the full four years? That he won't break precedent for the umpteenth time, get bored or fed up or both, and become the first president ever to willingly resign before his first term is up? Or do something so egregious, or illegal, he'll get impeached?

Trump Won Because America Chose To Look The Other Way

Despite all the warnings, despite all the evidence, Americans elected a snake charmer, a man who's made a career out of taking advantage of people and then discarding them like a used tissue, who's made a career out of protecting no one's interests but his own.

No one can say for certain how many concert works by Canadian composers have been heard at the White House. We do know the University of Toronto's Matthew Emery was surprised in December to learn -- after the fact -- that he had written one of them.

Catherine Chatterley

The human rights-interfaith dialogue rhetoric employed by President Obama on May 22, 2015 at the Adas Israel Synagogue in Washington DC was wonderful and made people feel warm inside. But this type of rhetoric is, in fact, messianic -- it is for tomorrow, for a time when there is no more war. That day has not yet come, I am afraid. And to speak as if it has is very dangerous.

Stop the Government From Fracking Our Way To 'Prosperity'

Perceived economic benefits (mostly short-term) trump the needs of all Canadians and their children and grandchildren for clean air and water, healthy food and a stable climate. Droughts, floods, water shortages, insect-plagued forests, extreme weather events, rising sea levels and melting glaciers don't matter as much as getting the oil, gas and coal out of the ground and sold as quickly as possible.

The 10 Most Infamous Real-Life Backdoor Political Deals

AskMen.com | Posted 04.20.2014 | Canada Politics

Sometimes it isn't the government that's to blame for back door deals. Back in 1869, two wily financiers, Jay Gould and James Fisk, thought they could outsmart the government and corner the gold market, but were foiled by the administration. Gould and Fisk tried to buy massive amounts of gold at a low price and then sell high using insider information.

Millions of dollars have been channeled into framing climate change messages by intentional misuse of language so as to mislead the masses. Unfortunately misleading language is precisely what the fossil fuel industry continues to thrive on; surely "ethical oil" sounds more appealing than tar-sands oil.
