    #5 Great points @Todd Jones and I agree, I feel our electoral system is outdated and flawed. Others may disagree but that's how I see it. A lot of re-districting has been done over time as well which has changed the number of electoral votes a district has. I won't be surprised to see him impeached, there are many investigations going on and those of us that have paid attention, we know he's made many contradictory statements and shall I say, lies?

    I've seen people joining many on a bipartisan level, this is a good thing. The beast woke our country up!

    #5 Very well expressed, Todd. As your northern neighbour I, too, hope that out of the chaos will eventually come a healthier electoral and political system in the US. Unfortunately, all perspective seems to have been lost with the media and the intelligentsia, and that includes my own country. On a different but related topic, Canada is now reacting to waves of refugees (many from Somalia) who are entering Canada in Manitoba (via North Dakota and Minnesota) and Quebec (via NY State). These are folks who are either in the refugee process in the US or are illegal immigrants. With the freezing temps, luckily no one has died. But it's causing a lot of concern here since: a) border control is not equipped for this, b) small communities (eg, Emerson, Manitoba) are desperately trying to help these people, and c) Canada is still trying to help settle the 40,000 Syrian refugees who recently arrived and who went through a rigid vetting process. In other words, hand picked. No one knows what is yet to come under the Trump administration.

    @Jim Taggart "Steamrolling people, insulting them and attempting to punish will get you nowhere." While I generally agree, if you're part of a group that views itself as downtrodden, ignored, misunderstood, and disadvantaged the type of bullying undertaken by President Cheeto will have appeal because his steamrolling is targeted on 'the others', not our group. Well considered piece here Jim. Thanks. Will share.

    20/02/2017 #5 Todd Jones
    You nailed it Jim. Although calling it a divide does not do justice to the scope of the chasm that separates folks in our country right now. Also, let's not forget that Trump ascended to office not on a wave of popular vote, but rather on a quirk of our flawed electoral system.

    Here's the thing. I didn't vote for Trump, yet I still cling to hope that his election will eventually bring positive change to our country. Not through anything that remotely resembles leadership, nor through his policy rhetoric or ridiculous tweets or bizarre Cabinet appointments. But hopefully, eventually, through his impeachment, or at least his loss of the next election. Remember, through conflict comes balance. If nothing else, Trump's antagonistic agenda is sowing the seeds for a healthy dose of balance when it ultimately fails.

    @Jim Taggart, this is a great piece, media worthy! Mr. Trump played on the fears of people more than unifying even during his campaign. I have paid attention to Trump and his business affairs per se for years and, I've never had respect for this man. As a businessman, he had many failures and blamed those failures on others. He's never been a man to take responsibility for his own actions or lack thereof. Trump is a one man show and feels he is superior (and smarter) than anyone he surrounds himself with. The notion that he does not want to surround himself with and take the advice of someone who has more knowledge in many area's of Government than he has is a sign of a weak leader, a person who has low self-esteem. I love that you used the letter from Elon as an example of what a good leader does. He's become more divisive since he won the election instead of trying to unite our country. To make claims that our entire media organization is 'false or fake news and the enemy,' is abhorring. No Politician has a love fest with the Media but to threaten them is a very dangerous game this man is playing. He's pandering to his base and seems to have no plans to work on behalf of the entire nation now. That is what is so frustrating and scares many. Once a person becomes the President of the USA, that person represents all of us, not just those who voted for him. Calling Islam, "Radical Islam," is no different than another Country calling Christianity, "Radical Christianity or Christians." I'm not a partisan (have become more of one since the mid 2000's thanks to politics become much more partisan) and my only hope is that those on Capitol hill will set a new tone because they are the people who can affect change. Will they? Time will tell!

    Olga Lawson, you may correct me if I am wrong, but, I do believe he has been compared more to Mr Putin, than Mr Gorbachov. The bottom line is that, we the people, must determine the fate and direction this country is going and not leave so much power in the hands of a single man. Jim Taggart, this is a very thoughtful piece. Thank you.

    Thank you, Jim for the healing insight on the way American people do feel right now. There is a view that Mr Trump is Mr Gorbachov of The USA. The type of leader who gives an official drive or green light to the proceces which were already in the society. I am quite comfortable with such comparison. This is the type of a Person the country deserves at some stages of its development. The US is a strong country, nothing to be afraid of, even its own President. It is another challenge. Enjoy the moment!

    Great post Jim. It is estimated that the average person in the US uses between 80 and 100 gallons of water per day. Multiply this times 320 million people, and 32 billion gallons A DAY get flushed, showered and sprayed down the drain. And this does not take into account the strain of industrial processes. Hydrocarbon consumption pales in comparison.

    Humans lived for thousands of years without fuel oil. We can only live for about five days without water. Some very astute investors, including those that accurately predicted the collapse of the housing and credit markets back in 2008 are now investing heavily in water rights, water processing equipment manufacturers, and water utilities. In my humble opinion, water shortages are a looming catastrophe that will indeed make the Keystone controversy look silly.
