The U.S. election was about as unpredictable and entertaining as a professional wrestling match; choreographed in true television style. I thought that once the U.S. election was over I wouldn’t have to hear any more about it.

Now all I hear is a negative perspective. This noise is obviously from the minority. Now we’ll have to deal with US protectionism again (still). I hope our prime minister and his Liberals get some spine and lock their knees or everything we have will go the way of the Avro Arrow. (Don’t know what that is? Watch the documentary).

The (really) contentious part will be the softwood which, when I last heard, the US owed Canada over a billion dollars and we haven’t seen a cent … I mean nickel.

But the American people have gotten so tired of the smoke-and-mirrors show that they care about anything or anyone but themselves. They have elected America personified: arrogant and ignorant. I’m going into the nuke shelter building business like we had in the 1960s. I think we’ll need them this time.
