Allan's Perspective is not recommended for the politically correct, or the overly religious! (Some people have opinions, and some have convictions ..., what we offer is Perspective!)
My wife is right, I am anal retentive...., so now I keep a can of WD-40 next to the toilet! (Sometimes I feel like I'm just a bobble-head on the highway of life!)

Saturday Morning Confusion # 72
It is with an unusual amount of trepidation that I look around and find things seriously out of whack and bordering on the ridiculous in our little corner of the world.
Three things have me dazed and confused, and I don't see how they are even possible, let alone how anyone can fix them!
First of all the election of 'Don the Con Trumplethinskin,' this is starting to look like that time Ontarians voted in the NDP by mistake, or the Brits voted for Brexit ...., and the only thing ya can do now is grin and bear it!
Next is the practice of cops "carding" people they stop on the street.
I was always under the impression that Canada is not a police state, and the long arm of the law cannot just arbitrarily stop individuals on the street and question them about why they are there, what they are doing. and where they are going. (OK, the cops can if they are directly investigating a crime, or think one is about to occur ...., which gives them a hell of a lot of leeway!)
A far as I know this practice of "carding" also directly flies in the face of the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms, but this little fact is being totally ignored by the police.
Last, but not least, is the situation with Sarnia's Major Mike Bradley.
Forget everything you read in the paper folks, I know most of the people involved in this fiasco and the whole thing reeks of a power play between Mayor Mike and several of the top city administrators.
These people are using political correctness and a left wing agenda to have Major Bradley declared a dangerous offender (bully) who should be ostracized from the rest of city hall staff.
This has gotten so insane that they are pushing for "safe zones" in city hall where staff can go and hide if they see "Mikie" coming down the hall!!!!
I just don't know how much more of this I can take kids, so I have decided to hibernate at home for the winter, and when I come out in the spring hopefully things will be back to some semblance of normalcy!
