First of all, my apologies for going such a long time between blogs. As many of you know, this September Meritha had a successful Whipple operation for pancreatic cancer, but she still has very serious chemo treatment ahead of her. I’ve had issues this year, also with cancer, (squamous cell carcinoma), and more recently with a diagnosis of severe stenosis of the spine – operation about nine months out – and double hernias – first operation about five months out. So it’s been multiple doctor’s visits each week.
On November 14, I published a blog called The Road to Zimbabwe. In it I suggested that no matter who wins, the US election must be seen to be fair and legal with every legitimate vote counted, and every illegitimate vote rejected. (Nearly 10% of Democrats say there was corruption.) The blatant corruption in the US election, and the dismissive attitude of the current Canadian government to political norms and regulations, are very worrying trends. (I had previously blogged Lessons from Zimbabwe as it relates to the decline of Canada)
I made five fairly extensive trips to Zimbabwe during the second decade of the Robert Mugabe regime, and it was sad to watch the mindless destruction of a once beautiful and prosperous country. If you think it can’t happen in Canada or the US, think again! It is happening. Just ask the citizens of Portland Oregon, or San Francisco.
Serendipitously, a few nights ago, Meritha and I watched Candace Owens in a wide-ranging interview with Melissa Tate, a woman who grew up in Zimbabwe and then moved to the United States. These are two extremely bright, very articulate women, discussing some of the most critical issues of our time.
This interview should be watched by every adult person in the Western world, no matter on which side of the political fence you sit. Please, encourage your children and grandchildren to watch it, especially if they are at all enthralled by socialism. Ms. Tate lived it.
Please Like, and Share. That’s how social media reaches tens of thousands rather than hundreds!
Have a wonderful Christmas season!
