A Brief Commentary, followed by a Video that is a Must-Watch for all Canadians Wondering If And When We Should Re-Open the Canada-U.S. Border  

Posted May 19th, 2020 on Niagara At Large

The Atlantic has recently come out with what should be a disturbing video to many in his own country and around the world titled; ‘Donald Trump – A Study in Leadership.

Not a very flattering portrait of the self-describe “stable genius,” but a very generous title, in Canadian border area resident’s view.

More than 90,000 deaths and counting as of this May 18th, Trumpies across America want everything re-opened. Well., okay. Just don’t drive the virus across the border.

As a long-time friend of our American neighbours and a student and admirer of many of the fundamental principles of the U.S. system of democracy – a system that the current occupant of the White House has pretty well shredded – I feel kind of bad putting it this way, but I tend to see this Atlantic video as more of a profile in fully naked madness and stupidity around that White House occupant’s behaviour.

If you are a Canadian and you watch this video, which you can click on immediately below, you might agree with me that however many beefs who may have with Canada’s current Prime Minister, Justin Trudeau, our PM looks like a cross between Franklin Delano Roosevelt and Winston Churchill compared this dangerous screwball.

Give them liberty or give them death. What if they get both?

The same could be said for contrasts between Trump and virtually every other world leader featured in the video.

So as you watch it, and keep in mind the millions of Trump followers who are now busting to get back to the bars, barber shops and bowling alleys where they might very well unleash a second, even more lethal wave of the virus, ask yourself if it is a good idea to open the Canada-U.S. border to pedestrian traffic any time soon. As of this posting the latest deadline (May 21st) for re-opening the border is less than three days away.

By the way, The Atlantic has long been one of the world’s greatest media outlets, as a magazine and in all of its other formats.

    DUH!

    This is a virus, not a bacteria. Antibiotics destroy bacteria, not viruses.

    Epidemiology to clown boy = astrophysics to a bonobo.
