    The worst of humanity emerges in democratic elections …. because the lowest common denominator is the most vocal.

    Something has happened to you Mr. Kinsella; you are no longer the hobbit that you once were. 😉

  3. Mike Smith says:

    LOL, another fan!!!

    I’ve been throwing up a little lately too… so much purile hatred for those who believe differently than them.

    Agreed! Thank you! It’s been terrible. Facebook has become polluted and twitter is a wasteland of this crap.

      Ditto on the facebook pollution. I don’t even want to go on facebook these days, so many friends of mine have become these partisan zombie mouthpieces. To me, it really shows the gulf that exists between partisan True Believers and everyone else (i.e., most people). Partisan True Believers are so wrapped up in their partisan bubble, it doesn’t even dawn on them how irritating they’re being.

        And it’s only been getting worse. The net used to be the place for political chat. Now it seems that there is zero space for honest, civil, non-partisan discussions.

        I think know who I am going to vote for. I definitely know how my preferences order. But that doesn’t mean we can’t talk honestly about the strengths and weaknesses, regardless of our preferences.

    Mr. Kinsella: You once wrote a rather good column on trolls but I can’t seem to find it. Is it still online?

    Everything you need to know about Trudeau was summed up,at Western University : we need to rethink elements as basic as space and time. This wasn’t a gaffe but rather an arrogant attempt to fool his university audience into thinking that he’s super smart. But what it told us is that he’s a super deceptive, disingenuous, manipulating showboat with zero substance.
