How sweet of hockey fans in Edmonton to  stand and sing  the U.S. national anthem when the microphone went out at a hockey game.   What a stunning contrast to America’s NFL players who kneel for that same anthem.   And exactly how many Americans do you imagine know even the first line of the Canadian national anthem?

British Prime Minister Theresa May  totally destroyed  her Labour opposition in questions time in the House of Commons.   The Brits are superb at this sort of repartee,  but it’s something Pres. Trump should certainly aspire to.

…celebrate Bastille Day on Wednesday?   Neither did I,  having last done so many years ago as a student taking French.

Jarrett Stepman has an  interesting look  back at that time in French history,  the horror it led to,  and how America managed to remain free.

I am quite happy we did not follow France’s path, although under the reign of His Oneness we are looking more like it every day.

Middle East now vs Europe then…

leave a comment »

Steven Bucci takes a look at the Middle East and finds  some alarming parallels with Europe just prior to World War I.   I found nothing in his article to seriously disagree with.

This is a  made American.   Unlike His Oneness,  Sothy Seang  is proud to be an American,  and  proud of his adopted country.
