I tried very hard to bury these painful thoughts about why so many people would fall for the…
This goes in the ‘no s7!t’ pile of obvious conclusions about what happened last year during the G20 conference in Toronto, but it’s still worth reporting to the general public that what went down last year was just plain wrong.
Imagine towards the end of this year the following ticket: Ron Paul and Dennis Kucinich.

I post these thoughts as I wait in an airport watching everyone gear up for Game 5 of the Stanley Cup.
