Pamela 馃悵 Williams I will readily acknowledge you perspective Pamela. I have many relatives in the US and they are very dear to me. The simple fact of the matter is this - the American people voted for this jackass and he still garners support from a sufficient number of the voiceless and deluded to remain in office. With regard to other world leaders kissing his ass (however repugnant that image is) there is a simple reality that, for the time being, the US remains the dominant economic power globally and while pandering may be objectionable it at the very least allows the world to carry on in the hopes that given term limits and a hoped-for impeachment process will leave the surviving leaders in a position to negotiate with new leadership. Understand, this is about the man and the office and in your system, those two cannot be separated. In a parliamentary democracy, we can quite readily dispose of a crazy person. Your system makes it much more difficult. You have my sympathy but empathy may be a stretch. I do appreciate you commenting very much. BTW: We make jokes because the reality is too difficult to comprehend. Besides, that's what we Canucks do!

Part 1 I take only one exception to this post Don and that is the phrase "Trump's America". It may be in his delusional mind but not for the majority of American's, even those who in either misguided ignorance or greed, contributed to this current political environment. I was not one of them, I saw it for what it was. Someone once said to me; "People don't change, they may change their approach, but the basic character of a person is ingrained" . A cheater, whether in business, or marriage, is always a cheater. If they cannot act honorably in their personal relationships and in business, how can they possibly be expected to act honorably as a leader. People may have temporarily lost a their common sense in 2016 but all I have left is hope that they have learned a lesson. You speak of the Brits; Why is May not wailing against this monster? Why is everyone writing about this horrible situation but their leaders are bending over and letting him and the GOP back-end them as well? Why are other nations, including Canada, continuing to kiss this man's and the GOP's ass in the name of their own country's well-being and not speaking out more, other than to make jokes about him. Remember this; as the U.S. goes, so goes ALL of America, which includes Canada.

One more year the Winter Solstice or Christmas is approaching

WINTER IS COMING! Do you like Christmas? Yes? Do not? What do you like the most? And what less? Are you clear about why you celebrate it and the way you celebrate it? I share with everyone what this time of year means to me. I do not usually write...

I think it's a magical time. Every year, events occur in Nature and the cosmos that make it special. And the Human Being is part of them. Great minds that have preceded us and some current ones have written about it (Georg K眉hlewind). I wish you a happy Winter Solstice and a lot of peace, love and prosperity for the new year. Have a nice day Erroll

Winter Solstice, a word I rarely hear something like Autumn(Fall Season). I think Christmas is the season I seem to love most. Great article.

Thanks Cyndi Docy . God's word is the strongest foundation. I love to read other authors on topics of leadership, dream-building, business, and more. Yet, I don't find it ironic that the principles that work come somewhere from in the Bible.

I love this article. There seem to be so few in this day who will stand upon the Word of God, your message is clear and so true. When we stand upon His word, He will make us steady to lead or do whatever we are given to do.

"Tesla could be considered a "feminist" sympathizing with the struggle of women toward gender equality. He once said that humanity would eventually be run by "Queen bees" and that women would be in control of the planet, necessary for our survival." And there you have it ladies!...Spoken by Tesla himself:-)
