Why is the 50th anniversary of Kennedy’s death news? Because it matters to US Boomers.

Breathless David Aitkin – doesn’t even read what he wrote a few lines above in his desparation to be meaningful.

Justin Trudeau is a bit of a lightwieght, there is no doubt about that. But he isn’t on crack and he hasn’t corrupted the entire Senate and public service.. well yet anyway; so there’s that going for him. Also if … Continue reading
