Commentary: Forget the left. Their view of Trump is so warped and limited that it is useful for nothing. If you want some real insight into Trump, listen to this 5 minute interview with Newt Gingrich: Newt Gingrich: Trumpism explained,

Civil Unrest: In Bits and Pieces – 20170117, Tuesday I wrote “The really interesting thought I found is that the next civil war has already begun.” Adding further support to this notion on a tip from a friend  is: America’s Second Civil War.

The question to ponder is will Amazon take over the retail world? And while you’re thinking about it, consider this: Amazon Enters Trillion Dollar Ocean Freight Business: How Many Jobs Will Vanish?

Without comment because I can’t think of anything civil: Trudeau, Sturgeon Respond To Refugee Ban: “Welcome To Those Fleeing Persecution, Terror And War”.
