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!

Is he is, or is he isn't?

Dear Friendss: I was idly looking over some previous posts for my next book when I realized that at one time or another I have angered and upset everyone that reads these pages because of stuff I have written, and at other times delighted everyone with my comments and observations........, just not at the same time! This made me keenly aware that you can't please everyone all the time,  you can't please some people at any time, you can't please anyone at anytime, and you can't please no one all the time! 


Am I secretly trying to aleniate everyone all the time, or please most people most of the time, or please some people some of the time? I will leave it up to you to decide, but remember, we can't always agree on everything all the time, and we surely won't disagree on everything most of the time,  but we will agree on most things most of the time!

The way I see it anyway!

Mr. Magoo sees things a lot better than we thought!

Dear Friends. Your humble reporter would like to introduce you to 39th Secretary of Commerce for the United States who was appointed by Don the Con Trumplethinskin about two weeks ago!

Wilbur Ross (Mr. Magoo)
A few days after appointing the man we refer to as "Mr. Magoo" to his Cabinet post Donald Drumpf has a sudden inspiration to slap tariffs on steel and aluminum imports................,
......., which the Perspective Research Department has discovered is one of the types of companies this investment banker likes buy and sell!

Now this isn't quite as bad as the particular brand of nepotism Drumpf practices with his kids, folks..............., but it's almost as bad!

The Accidental President!

Dear Friends: I don't know why I didn't see this earlier but the Mueller probe into Trump's shenanigans today asked for corporate documents concerning various business deals they did with the Russians and this suddenly brought a lot of things into "Perspective" for me! (God I love that word!)

1.  Drump's initial foray into seeking the Presidency was purely a marketing and publicity move to draw attention and money and stature to his business deals. (All the shady deals in a shady business with shady Russians didn't matter since he never expected to really win the political thing......., only benefit from the publicity!)

2. Once it looked like HE MIGHT WIN Drumpf reasoned that he could handle anything that came his way because....., after all....., HE would be the "President of the United States!" (That's when he found out that he wasn't "the most powerful man in the world" and political life didn't play by the same rules he grew up with.)


3. This means poor Donald has been playing "dodgeball" full-time and being the President of the United State part-time ever since!!!!!!!!!!!

Stephen Hawking dies?

Dear Friends: British Physicist Stephen Hawking, the most iconic and brilliant scientist since Einstein, apparently died at age 76. Doctors suspect he died on Wednesday afternoon but caution that they will have to observe him for a few more days to make sure he really did pass away!

So that's the ticket!

Dear Friends: I'm not going to do a lengthy song and dance over this information because the main gist of it can be reduced to a few simple paragraphs!

"People prefer alt-news to factual news because you can pick and chose what you want to believe!" 

What we mean by this is that any alt-news that confirms or supports your own particular ideas or thoughts of what's going on......., will register much quicker and with more force that plain old boring facts! (This is especially appealing to Drump's base who display a certain lack of critical thinking!)

THAT, my friends, is the reason Donald Drumpf is doing what he does so successfully!

Who's been smoking that funny tobacco?

Dear Friends: As the date for legal mriwanna, marijwaana, marjiwanna, WEED fast approaches the Ontario government has released their new logo for their pot stores!

Ontario Cannabis store? 

NOW, here comes the good part kids: 
The Liquor Control Board of Ontario confirmed on Saturday that it would pay about $650,000 to the global advertising agency Leo Burnett for development of the name, logo and brand guidelines.
 (That works out to $200,000 per letter and another $50,000 for the circle!)

"The name and logo are only one piece of the overall work from Leo Burnett," said an LCBO spokesperson by email to the Ottawa Citizen on Saturday. It also included "the development of the overall brand strategy."

Fair enough, but $650,000 is no small chunk of change – and people outside the worlds of marketing and design are blown away by how much was spent.

The LCBO has said that the straightforwardness of its OCS design was intentional.

Both the name and logo were chosen so that citizens could "safely and easily identify Ontario Cannabis Stores as the sole legal retailer of non-medical cannabis in Ontario," according to an LCBO release.

"To build a broad, province-wide brand that will be recognized as a sole retailer of legal recreational cannabis required thoughtful and strategic brand development strategies," said the liquor control board later, "and consultation from a variety of stakeholders."

On thing for sure folks..........., somebody has been smoking weed!

Sunday Morning Funnies # 2

Dear Friends:

Newfoundland farmer named Angus had a vehicle accident. He was hit by a truck owned by the Eversweet Company.

In court, the Eversweet Company's hot-shot solicitor was questioning Angus. 

'Didn't you say to the RCMP at the scene of the accident, 'I'm fine?'
 asked the solicitor.

Angus responded: 'Well, I'll tell you what happened. I'd just loaded my fav'rit cow, Bessie, into da... 

'I didn't ask for any details', the solicitor interrupted.'Just answer the question. Did you not say, at the scene of the accident, 'I'm fine!'?'

Angus said, 'Well, I'd just got Bessie into da trailer and I was drivin' down da road.... '

The solicitor interrupted again and said,'Your Honour, I am trying to establish the fact that, at the scene of the accident, this man told the police on the scene that he was fine. Now several weeks after the accident, he is trying to sue my client. I believe he is a fraud. Please tell him to simply answer the question. '

By this time, the Judge was fairly interested in Angus' answer and said to the solicitor: 'I'd like to hear what he has to say about his favourite cow, Bessie'.

Angus thanked the Judge and proceeded. 'Well as I was saying, I had just loaded Bessie, my fav'rit cow, into de trailer and was drivin' her down de road when this huge Eversweet truck and trailer came tundering tru a stop sign and hit me trailer right in da side. I was trown into one ditch and Bessie was trown into da udder. By Jaysus I was hurt, very bad like, and didn't want to move. However, I could hear old Bessie moanin' and groanin'. I knew she was in terrible pain just by her groans.

Shortly after da accident, a policeman on a motorbike turned up. He could hear Bessie moanin' and groanin' too, so he went over to her. After he looked at her, and saw her condition, he took out his gun and shot her between the eyes.

Den da policeman came across de road, gun still in hand, looked at me, and said, 'How are you feelin'?'

'Now whot da fock would you say?'

Saturday Morning Confusion About Alternative Universes!

Dear Friends: Even though it's a lazy Saturday morning I somehow woke up at 6:15 a.m. and not wanting to jump up and start the day I turned on the TV and did a little channel surfing between the three U.S. cable news networks. (Now don't get me wrong, I watch Canadian news a lot, but for the last couple of years the stuff from down south is so much more interesting. "It's like a box of chocolates!")

This is why I call it an alternative Universe in TV land kids because MSNBC and CNN were attacking Drumpf while Fox news was supporting him non stop!

First a little background for anyone not familiar with the situation here.

MSNBC is left leaning and denigrates Drumpf at every opportunity.

CNN is sort of in the middle-of-the-road, which means they also disparage Trumplethinskin at every opportunity, but they aren't quite as nasty about it as MSNBC.

Fox news is far right and thinks that Drumpf  can walk on water!

Now that we have set the scene here is what I saw on the tube this morning:

MSNBC was going on with great glee about the Donald and the stripper plus the damage tariffs on steel would do to the country!

CNN was reporting the bad tariffs and generally casting doubt on Drumpf's overture to North Korea.

Fox news was dividing their time between claiming that Donald's upcoming meeting with Kim Jung-Non was the greatest thing since sliced bread and Elizabeth Warren's heritage!

Her heritage?

Yup, Donald keeps calling her "Pocahontas" as an insult, but Fox news was calling her Indian ancestry into question, and claimed she got a University job as a professor under affirmative action when in fact she didn't have any native blood in her at all..........., and wanted her to take a DNA test to prove that she was part Native American.

All this makes me a strong believer of the "Multi-verse Theory!"
