    Actually yes, I have noticed. It’s just the bad apples that sway my thoughts at times.

    No, many are still very capable of civil discourse.

    When I was younger way back when we had respect for our elders, a courtesy younger generations seem to have abandoned.

    Alberta is now proudly enforcing thoughtcrime, so you're not far off.

    Had only about 75 to 85 kids tonight.

    50 adults each took a cup of hot mulled wine. Some came without their kids. Total of 8 bottles of red wine.

    Thoroughly enjoyed by all.

    Happy Halloween!

    White House calls police shootings of black men 'a local matter'

    Washington (CNN)President Donald Trump has encouraged police officers to be rougher on suspects they arrest. He has deployed federal authorities to stem gun violence in Chicago. And he has repeatedly called for police nationwide to implement tough-on-crime policies.


    But when it comes to the deaths of black men at the hands of police, Trump believes those incidents are a "local matter" that "should be left up to the local authorities," White House press secretary Sarah Sanders said Wednesday.
