MY BIRTHDAY IN 2017


MY BIRTHDAY IN 2017 -
By Bernard Bujold - 
The greatest wealth on earth is life! But with life comes aging! Thus, each year that passes, it is customary to emphasize our Date of birth, a little way as to assess the state of our aging... Personally, the anniversary of June 28, 2017, was a very pleasant one because it was the first since the election of Donald Trump, a victory that deeply delighted me, and which still delights me very deeply every day! It is not so much the political program of the American President which touches me but the personality of the man Donald Trump. We both share this same vision of life that we must never abandon the struggle to realize our dreams and personal ambitions. It is possible for anyone to realize his visions and if you're going to be thinking anything, you might as well think big. 
Every year on the day of my birthday, I like to remember my Gaspe origins with a good meal. And as I have become a city man over the years, with all that this may mean, I also like to go and visit my favorite urban restaurant, the same by the way as my idol Donald... 
At every anniversary, I also think of my greatest achievement in life: my two children who are for every parent nothing less than a miracle and a rapprochement with eternity! 
If life is the greatest human wealth, youth is the second most important, but regardless of whether one was born in 1947, 1967 or in 1997, it is necessary to make the most of every passing day. 
As a well-known Quebec opera singer often says: "vive la vie..."

DONALD TRUMP - THE SPEAKER


THE SPEAKER- 
By Bernard Bujold - 
Donald Trump is happy when he is in front of a public! One could say that he is a speaker at soul! And he is at best, a motivator! 
Donald loves the public so much that already, even if it is only June 2017, he intends to participate during the next coming weeks at rallies to raise money for his next Presidential race of 2020...

THE BOOK OF THE SUMMER 2017 - UNDERSTANDING TRUMP


THE BOOK OF THE SUMMER 2017 - UNDERSTANDING TRUMP 
By Bernard Bujold- 
I am all set for my summer reading with the new book about Donald Trump: "UNDERSTANDING TRUMP" by Newt Gingrich. 
A real look on how Donald won his race for the White House!
Before the campaign, Donald asked Gingrich: “So, what’s the bottom line financially?” Gingrich said that he could be competitive for about $70 to $80 million. After a moment of thought, Donald said, “$70 to 80 million: that would be the price of a yacht. This race would be a lot more fun than a yacht!” 
For a summer of pleasure and motivation, this is the book to read, at least for me... 
Have a nice summer 2017 and a good read!

ROBERT CAMPEAU 1923-2017


ROBERT CAMPEAU 1923-2017 
By Bernard Bujold -
The businessman Bob Campeau died Monday, June 12, at his residence in Ottawa at the age of 93.  Campeau was a colorful and ambitious entrepreneur who can be categorized as Paul Desmarais, Frank Stronach, and even a Donald Trump. 
Robert Campeau dominated his empire until the day he bet on a scenario of expansion too favorable and then he had to face an uncontrollable rise in interest rates notably after his acquisition of the luxury stores Federated in the United States. 
Bob Campeau first made his mark in the construction of bungalows in the Ottawa area. 
The spouse of Pauline Marois, the former Premier of Quebec, Claude Blanchet, made a fortune following his association with Campeau when he was one of his first executive assistants.

LISE THIBAULT - PARTY IS OVER...


THE PARTY IS OVER... 
By Bernard Bujold - 
I accepted two or three times the invitation by Lise Thibault and what surprised me was the passion of the other guests. They were all very important people in our society but they were doing "genuflexion" before Lise and considered it an immense honor to be invited to her events. 
They considered Lise even more noble than themselves! 
When she arrived in her garden, all the dignitaries stood up like soldiers... 
This is what I find hypocritical because the guest dignitaries have benefited as much from the gifts of Lise as Lise herself... 
Me, I never went back to her party after the two or three times because I found it too fake and a bit comical! 
However I must say that I still kept the golf balls she had given me... 
Lise took advantage of the system but the thousands of dignitaries who accepted her gifts (party on the grass, sale of art works by artists to Lise who then she gave back to her many visitors, etc). 
Lise gave happiness to several and these accepted "the favor"... 
Lise was like the drunkard at the bar who pays drinks to other people. When the free tour is over and the drunk has no more money, the boss of the bar throws the drunk out! 
My conclusion: We must beware of dignitaries because they are often not more worthy than the drunkard on the street!
