    I'm pleased to see how well Messrs Trump and Trudeau are getting along. They seem to actually like each other, and I sense a mutual respect.

    President Trump has done quite a lot of good for Canada, as well - beginning with his approving the Keystone pipeline. And the NAFTA negotiations look like they will prove beneficial for both Countries.

    A local politician in Poland has arranged to let a cow live in peace after she escaped a slaughterhouse and swam to safety.

    The cow made its bid for safety last month, after she refused to get into a truck that was transporting cows to a slaughterhouse. Instead, she smashed through a metal fence, broke the arm of the man trying to catch her, and made a dash for the nearby Lake Nysa.

    She then swam to an island in the middle of the lake.

    The cow's owner, Mr. Lukasz, spent a week trying to get her to come back before finally giving up. And Pawel Kukiz, a political leader in the town of Nysa, has arranged for the 'hero cow' to remain on the island and be saved from death.

    The poor cow was finally caught and put on a truck to a place where she could live happily and free, but she collapsed and died,
    most likely from shock. Not what I would call a happy end.

    City Council Removes Veteran Memorial, So Voters Remove Something Of Theirs

    City Council Removes Veteran Memorial, So Voters Remove Something Of Theirs Cowardly city council members voted to remove a veterans memorial after the atheist-minority complained that it was “offensive.” So, voters gathered the very next day and made a decision of their own that has the city council regretting they ever bowed to political correctness. On November 2, the Knoxville City Council of Iowa agreed that they would remove a memorial for fallen soldiers because atheists were outraged that it featured a Christian cross, signifying a headstone. On Tuesday, only one day after the council voted to tear down the display, angry voters convened and voted that the gutless officials be removed from their positions. Breitbart reports that aside from some 2,000 white crosses erected in yards across the town, citizens had warned the city council that if they voted to remove the display, they would be removed as well. Apparently, officials ignored the majority’s advice, a decision they now regret, and council members April Verwers, Carolyn Formanek, and David Roozeboom proceeded to vote in favor of eliminating the memorial. The next day, Formanek and Verwers were voted out of office, and Roozeboom chose to forgo re-election, knowing that he would be removed as well. Neither Formanek nor Verwers garnered more than 15 percent of the vote. Resident Doug Goff was ecstatic over Tuesday’s turnout. “I was extremely emotional,” Goff said, “because this cause is very deep to me and I felt like I have let people down. I’d like to send him the message that if you’re not going to listen to Knoxville, Knoxville’s not going to back you.”

    Yes!!! To hell with political correctness. You don't like it here, move to North Korea! I hear they have an excellent diet and exercise program for overweight snow flakes.

    You're supposed to be living in a DEMOCRACY.......that means the Majority have the say!!

    And anyway, that Vets Memorial was put up to remember for all time those of your community who had given their lives for their country. I can understand why the majority in the community got upset.

    Cheers
