With everything that has already happened in 2021, I thought it may be a good time to look back at a New Year’s 2018 story I wrote in the My Political Viewpoint section of Out of My Mind and see how things have changed, and how much has stayed the same. So without further ado, I present…

A Brand New Year, A Brand New Rant

Here we are in 2018, and United States President, Donald Trump is still tweeting from the throne in the White House. I don’t know about you, but I didn’t see that one coming and now I have bets to pay off. Of course, Trump still being in office has implications that cause unease, not only in the United States, but worldwide. Will he start a war with North Korea? Will he pull the United States out of the North American Free Trade Agreement? Will he actually show up at Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s wedding? Will he replace the White House chef with a McDonald’s franchise?

North of the border, we have our own concerns. Manitoba Premier and Canadian Ambassador to Costa Rica, Brian Pallister, took some time away from his eight month vacation and his diligent efforts to dismantle Manitoba’s Health Care system to speak at a Winnipeg Chamber of Commerce meeting in December. There he attempted to follow the sterling examples provided by President Trump and Harvey Weinstein by commenting, not on the WCC Chair’s business achievements, but on her clothing and shoes. But to be fair, Mr. Pallister may be planning ahead for a potential future career in retail when this one crashes. May I suggest checking with the White House? I hear that they are looking for a short order cook. How are you at flipping burgers?

On a Federal level, Prime Minister Trudeau is thinking about, well, uh… Ok, let’s face it. There is a very real possibility that even he has no idea what the hell he is thinking from one minute to the next.
