Trickle Down

SXNEL7ON76WMXFFU2GWBQARJ6Y

The Munchkin seen here with Eva Braun’s granddaughter and some money from the Reichsbank. Other Party member unidentified.

Well dear friends, I’m here to discuss another of the Comb Over’s underqualified ubermensch.  Today’s victim is Oberfuhrer of the Treasury Stefan Mnuchin, a previously convicted felon, investment banker, and overpaid Wall Street insider.  All these are synonyms for crook but I don’t expect you to know that or even know what a synonym is.  Trust me.  Even though said Party Member is purportedly six feet tall, I can’t help but use the moniker of Munchkin for the Oberfuhrer, so onward.

The Munchkin’s latest idea is to give the uber-rich even more money from the already debt ridden U.S. Treasury.  $100 billion.  If this wasn’t a bribe for the already uber-rich semi-Libertarian Koch Brothers who have decided they don’t really like the Comb Over because of his onerous trade and immigration policies, well then I don’t know what a bribe is.  The details of this is a capital gains tax break driven by discounting the cost basis of assets to inflation.  Now I know you aren’t going to understand this, and it is complicated.  Your underfunded school system couldn’t possibly have prepared you for this kind of mind bending concept, but I went to a big city private university so you know you can trust me.  Stay with me here.

Old Uber-Rich White Guys

The long and the short of this is 2/3 (two-thirds) of this $100,000,000,000 tax windfall would go to the upper 0.1% of the uber-rich.  Almost zilch will go to you my freunde since you don’t have any, or little, capital gains.  Only rich people have a lot of capital gains.  Have you ever heard the phrase:  “It takes money, to make money”?  That’s what rich people do instead of going to work.  It gives them time to host reality shows, which we all know is not real work.  You or I however, have to work for a living, or you have a pension, or a Social Security “entitlement,” or a 401K.  None of these are “assets” that you can claim capital gains on so no candy for you.  Pension funds are likewise pretty screwed since they tend to be invested in income generating assets like bonds.  I know, your head is going to explode.  Let’s boil it down to:  only rich people are going to benefit from this proposed capital gains tax cut, not you untermensch.

Now to justify this charade the Munchkin mentions the dreaded “Trickle Down.”  Think back.  Think back real hard.  When was the last time anything besides piss trickled down from a rich guy, hmm?  This Laffable economic theory has been shown to never work.  It’s been debunked more times than you’ve taken a shower.  Nothing ever trickles down from the rich, not money, not jobs, not healthcare anyway.  Do uber-rich guys start new businesses?  Do they employ gobs of people?  Usually not, poor and middle class persons start businesses and a few become uber-rich.  Rich people just collect capital gains on real estate, stocks, bonds, options, annuities, etc.  Do they build a single factory?  No.  They don’t have to work, so why give them more money to stuff in an offshore account that benefits no one besides the uber-rich?  They don’t need it, but you could sure use it my poor freunde.

Lastly, the Comb-Over stands to benefit the most from this capital gains tax swindle, so think about that.  He also says that collusion is not a crime.  Why would he say that?  Did he collude on something, so I looked up collude:  come to a secret understanding for a harmful purpose; conspire.  Secret, harmful purpose, conspire.  I think we should all collude to make the Comb Over go away.

Old Hickory and the Comb Over

Fake News

fakenews_fox_grande

The Comb Over must be reading a chapter of Mein Kampf every night before he goes to bed.  Actually I don’t think the Comb Over ever read a book in his life.  He’s probably got the abridged Audible version which he pirated so he doesn’t have to give Jeff Bezos a nickel.  Nix that, he probably doesn’t even realise that Audible is owned by Amazon unless he saw it on the State Media Fox & Freunde.

hannitymono_0

Oberfuhrer Heinrich Hannity

Anyway the reason I say this is he seems to add a new facet to his already revolting personality each day in order to make him look even more like Adolf Hitler, or his alter ego and uck buddy Party Secretary Josef Stalin, sorry I mean “President” dictator Vladimir Putin.  Today’s Comb Over Twitter rant involves targeting the Media (whatever that means, I guess it would include me too) as the “enemy of the state.”  Is he just cutting and pasting these Tweets straight out of Mein Kampf or is he thinking about it at all?  Strike that, he never had an original thought in his life.

The Comb Over apparently asked for an “off the record” meeting with the editor of the New York Times on July 20th about the hostility of the Times to the Fourth Reich which the orange-lidded lying weasel subsequently put on the record by referring to the meeting in a Twitter rant about the “fake news enemy of the state dying newspaper media.”  The Times was left with no recourse except to rebut the lies the Comb Over spread about the meeting and state its own view that it would continue reporting the truth as it sees it and welcomed the Comb Over to attack the Times in any way he felt inclined short of censorship.  The editor of the Times apparently stressed in the meeting that the Comb Over’s vitriol (he’ll have to look that one up) towards the media was possibly whipping up a hateful and dangerous frenzy among the gun toting brown shirted confederate flag wavers, bigots, gay baiters, knuckle draggers, ignoramuses, and racists that form the base of the Nazi Party, er, Republican, I mean Comb Over’s support (my paraphrase, not the Times).

One final note, a sort of aside.  I’ve got some fake news, the confederate flag is now the new swastika.

The Big Lie

207t1j_crop

Propaganda Ministers

Josef Goebbels was actually the mastermind behind selling the Final Solution to the world.  After WWII started for real Hitler rarely appeared in public.  He didn’t want to take any questions.  He didn’t want the media attention.  He was so popular, he didn’t want to get his head blown off.  He didn’t like “fake news” about Germany.

“All this was inspired by the principle—which is quite true within itself—that in the big lie there is always a certain force of credibility; because the broad masses of a nation are always more easily corrupted in the deeper strata of their emotional nature than consciously or voluntarily; and thus in the primitive simplicity of their minds they more readily fall victims to the big lie than the small lie, since they themselves often tell small lies in little matters but would be ashamed to resort to large-scale falsehoods.

It would never come into their heads to fabricate colossal untruths, and they would not believe that others could have the impudence to distort the truth so infamously. Even though the facts which prove this to be so may be brought clearly to their minds, they will still doubt and waver and will continue to think that there may be some other explanation.”  – Mein Kampf

Basically, ignorant people will believe the big lie because it is so outrageous they couldn’t imagine themselves telling the same, or another equivalently outrageous, big lie.  Goebbels thought that he could not only sucker his own people with the Big Lie, but also the British and they would come around to the Nazi way of thinking about the Jews.  But the Brits didn’t buy the Big Lie, well they actually did once, but fool me twice, I don’t think so.

Now add fifty pounds, lose the hat, add a string of pearls, lipstick, and a dress to Goebbels and we have the current Propaganda Minister Sarah Sanders Huckabee.   Huckabee.  Ring a bell?  Former Propaganda Minister Sean Spicer (SS) couldn’t keep telling the big lies with a straight face, or admitting that he didn’t have a clue about what to say, so we got SSH.  SS, remember that.  Oh wait, that was HH, Heinrich Himmler.  Never mind….  There are so many parallels it is uncanny.   These people claim to be good Christians and they lie, lie lie.  What about those Ten Commandments?

Anyway, apparently certain reporters aren’t going to be allowed in the Rose Garden anymore because they ask the Comb Over questions he doesn’t want to answer, or can’t answer, or he can’t sell the Big Lie effectively anymore.  So, Propaganda Minister SS Huckabee is now going to be more the face of the Reich since she can regurgitate the Big Lie effectively with a straight face, argue with reporters, expel the media, stomp on the First Amendment, etc.  Today the Comb Over supposedly took the limo instead of Marine One to Air Force One because of the weather.  Fog.  No reports of fog in DC today.  Remember when I told you about helicopters and the Comb Over  way back in 2013?  The Big Lie.

Immigration

Trump-and-Hitler

I used to try to make this blog somewhat entertaining, back in those days when life wasn’t yet so serious.  I’d talk about TV programmes, professional wrestling, seniors driving, and sometimes the odd important issue, but still try to make it light and lively.  Satire they call it.  Well dear reader, the end times have come.  The thing everybody said could never happen here happened here.  The Comb Over on late night TV is not funny.  Hitler on late night TV is not funny.  Laugh now, but you won’t be laughing when they come for you.  Get ready for the party to end.  Bad hangover if you even wake up.  Ever seen the film Cabaret?  Well we’re living it.  Money makes the world go ’round.

Now that I’ve re-started this blog again I don’t know where to start.  There are so many untold truths.  Maybe I’ve waited too long.  But you’ve got to start somewhere.  Bite size as they say.

So, let’s start with what I call the last straw.  Images, sounds, of children wailing, desperately trying to memorize phone numbers in another language.  Pictures of cages with children in them.  Is this Bavaria in 1936?  No, it’s Texas in the 21st century.  Sounds like an alternate history sf novel kinda.  Well, if you like that sort of thing, you’re living it now.  Enjoy the ride into future history.  The Comb Over has legitimized the incarceration of families, of human beings, people no different than you or I just born in another place and, seeking a better life for themselves and their loved ones. Look up the word Objectification, Look up Dehumanize.  Do you think if this had been 1936 without social media that it would have stopped on its own?  America was always about the hope of a better future for ourselves but even more so for our children and future generations.

Philosophically I’m socially Libertarian.  I generally approve of unfettered immigration.  Come on over everybody let’s have a party!  There’s room in this house for everyone! That’s how America became the greatest nation it was.  Invite don’t discourage.  What if you hadn’t been born with the silver spoon that is American citizenship and white skin in this world?  A fate you never deserved or asked for, just given, not as a right but as a fact of random chance?

Sure you get the bad with the good, but the chances are so small it’s ridiculous.  Do you think that your chances of being victimized by MS-13 or Islamic Fundamentalism is so great that we should lock the door and hunker down with our guns and goods?  Your chances of being killed by terrorists or cartels is less than falling down the stairs or in a traffic accident because of our lousy roads.  Where are the sensible priorities?  You are being victimized by the fear of bad statistics and bad science.  A symptom of our failure to provide a decent education to our electorate.  Besides Law Enforcement was supposed to take care of those things before it became the slave of the militarization of the War on Drugs.  And sensible gun control would also take care of a lot of it.  Those are other topics but I’ll have to save those for another time or this would get too long for the average State News, er, I mean, Fox News consumer.  See I still throw in the odd one liner.

What the haves (Ubermensch) will not tell you is they want to let just enough of the “right” ones in to protect the white rich society; the Roman lifestyle they all live, and fool you into thinking you can aspire to in life, while keeping wages low and any talk of human rights and decency out of the equation.  Healthcare, Shelter, decent living standards.  These would put too much of a burden on “society” and ruin the economy.  C’mon folks stop being swindled by the lies.

I’ll give you one last tidbit to ponder, not about immigration but even you will figure it out.  Look up something called the Soviet-German Non-Aggression Pact between Nazi Germany and the Stalinist Soviet Union.  Now change the names to Trump, Vladimir Putin, and just for good measure throw in Kim Jong Un as Benito Mussolini.  Hey, I think I’ve seen this film before….  Those who fail to heed their history are doomed to repeat it.  Meet the new boss, same as the old boss.  Blind acceptance is a sign of stupid fools who stand in line.  Anger IS an energy.

If only CBS, or CNN, or anybody for that matter would point these things out I wouldn’t have to sit here over my vintage computer and I could get a low paying, benefits and pension free job in the New Economy and rest easy at night….  Satire.

Oh, by the way that’s not Hitler at the top but another nice guy from the 1940s trying to make America, er I mean Germany, great again.  He poisoned himself, his wife, and all his children in the end.  We should be so lucky.  Sorry about the wife and kids tho.

 

 

 

The Comb Over (Part 2)

008609b28e29172722a74a5d1259ff08

Yes blessed friends I’m back.  And better than ever.  It is my sad duty to have to exercise my First Amendment Rights as an American in order to inform you that The Comb Over is Adolf Hitler with orange hair.  45th President of the United States.  If there ever was a sign of the decline of western civilization Donald Trump is it.  I told you the parallels were eerie: a leader treated by the political and media establishment as a buffoon, a dimwit outsider and an “it can’t happen here,” lazy intellectual attitude on the part of an ignorant electorate due to a shabby school system kidnapped by Tea Party Christian Right Wing White Republicans in favor of charter, voucher, home school, and just plain minimal investment in the education of our future (our children).  Then there is the Big Lie.  Then there is the manipulation of liberal democracy by Billionaires and the Soviet Union, er, I mean Russia.  I will prove to you in these bitter pages that to vote for a Republican now is to vote for the Nazi Party, Der Fuhrer.  Wait and see.  It will all become crystal clear.

Where to start?  Maybe at the end.  The separation and caging of refugee children was the last straw.  Where was the last place we saw families divided and sent off to “detention” camps when they came to a new country?  Do I have to spell it out for you?  You watch the History Channel, right?  My father fought to liberate people from concentration camps.  Almost died in The Battle of the Bulge.  Am I gonna sit here and watch the same thing happen to the Red, White, and Blue?  I’m disgusted, appalled.  Crying children.  My country?  Cages.  I’m ashamed to call myself American.

ICE.  Jack-booted storm troopers.  Sometimes you just walk away from your job because it is too repulsive, inhumane.  You say “I won’t be a part of this.”  Patriots just doing their jobs?  So were the SS men in Dachau.  Study the banality of evil.  They say they’ll use DNA to match the right children with their families.  What’s that about?  Like parents won’t recognize their own children?  Why do we need to match DNA?  If this doesn’t sound creepy to you, you aren’t paying attention.

How many times have you heard someone ask “if you were back in Nazi Germany would you have participated in the Holocaust?”  The answer is inevitably, “No I would have resisted.”  Liars, every one of you.

The time for conversation is over.  There is no such thing as “good people on both sides” when the Confederate flag is displayed.  How would you feel if they put up a statue honoring Erwin Rommel and you were Jewish?  Stone Mountain, Georgia.  How does an African American feel about that monument?

5b3e7408967ba5c9068b491d-750-375

On today’s menu is Scott Pruitt Gauleiter of the Environmental Protection Agency.  He resigns after disemboweling 50 years of environmental protection for the planet.  Talk about putting the fox in the hen house.  A lifestyle considered lavish even by Imperial Roman standards on my/your dime while you scrabble to get health insurance, he resigns not in shame, but in having done a “good” job.  I’m sure there is a CEO/Lobbyist job he doesn’t need waiting for him in the Energy Sector somewhere.  Probably the Koch brothers.  Who knows.  Presidential Pardon.

Enough for today.  I’ll get back to you tomorrow.  I have so much more to say….

Sorry

ncis_profiles_hero_leroy

In my favorite TV show, NCIS, Special Agent Leroy Jethro Gibbs has a list of rules that he uses to pretty much run his life.  Like rule number 9 is “Always carry a knife.”  Pretty useful, huh.  You could do worse, and probably do, by not writing things like this, that I tell you, down.  Now NCIS has really gone downhill since the Ziva and Tony glory days but some things are timeless, and Gibbs’ rules are one of those timeless things and one of his rules is “Never apologize, it’s a sign of weakness.”  Well I’m gonna be weak here because 1) I’ve let you down by ignoring you dear blog time waster so long, and 2) I posted all those dumb book reviews from Booklikes.  Why read these days when you can watch TV almost anywhere, so why review books?  Time waster.  Life waster.  Bandwidth waster.  I apologize.

Now that that’s out of the way, I want to remind you; I don’t really want to say I told you so, but I told you so, so I’m going to say it:  the comb-over is a problem.  Way back in June of 2013 I said this.  Here’s the link:

Comb Over

I know our world has other more serious problems, like the Mayweather-McGregor fight, or the Kardashians starting to wear down a few teeth, but now you see you need to go back over my prior blog posts and review my sage advice.  You’ll be better for it.  Our country will be better for it, and our planet will be better for it.

Mark Harmon has never sported a comb-over.  Remember, I told you so…

MayPoleCindy (1)

Pretty cool, two April Fool’s jokes on the same blog?  Woot helped me out, but I did most of the heavy lifting.  You saps went for it hook, line, and, sinker!  All around the world even!  Did that make my day, or what?  I told you I’m putting in 110% for you and there you are, proof positive.  Your dreary world got that much brighter because I put down the US government spies in a daft way and slipped (pun intended!) that Rhonda Shear bra thing in as well.  Wasn’t that a hoot?  I even thought about buying one myself just to show Woot my appreciation, but I’m not that dumb or wealthy.

300px-Communist_star.svg_1

No May Day posts though.  It’s a communist pagan holiday like Labor Day.  We don’t go for that here.  Communism is like an enforced D minus effort and Liberty is what we are about; even if everyone would be better off in a D minus world.  If you are stupid enough to not follow my easy, I mean easy, like no effort at all, life principles, well that’s your problem and I’ll defend your right to choose that desperate way of life all the way to the point where I have to use you as a human shield to defend that principle.  Like I’ve said before, I’ve got your back even if you choose to be a human sandbag for me.

22445470_capitalist_xlarge

Whoa, steady in the boat there boy.  I got a little worked up.  Someday I’ll tell you why communism is the only thing worse than rampant capitalism as a world system (I know one is economic and the other is political, I’m not a ‘tard).  Some other day when you are ready for it.  Not now.  All things in good time.

mickeys-malt-liquor-355ml-1pk

Okay here is another heads up and on-target essay so pay attention, no napping. The swill we used to call Malt Liquor is now referred to as Ale.  Yeah, the high alcohol content brew that was for low-down drinking is now being foisted off on the public under designer and “craft” brew labels as India Pale Ale.  Now I don’t drink anymore ’cause it interferes with my ability to try to make your life better, but I used to drink, a lot, and you can make of that what you want but right now today it makes me better than a swill-head like you so listen up.

When I used to buy a case of Mickey’s in college people gave me a hard time.  They said I was going downscale ethnically.  Being a man who ignored the bigot, I bought it anyway, better buzz, better value.

Honey-Fruit-Mead-Brewing

Well some bootleggers keen on evading government taxes got the bright idea if they could convince lawmakers to waive the tax on “amateur” brewing for “home” use it would be a good idea, for them.  No doubt some grease was applied.  ‘Nuff said.

Then these so-called home brewers wanted to share some of their 20 proof bathtub jack with their “friends,” and maybe serve some ribs on the side, so voila, the brewpub was born, again tax free with a little more lubricant applied. Now these clever entrepreneurs figured if they could convince the gullible, ie you, that this brew pub thing was upscale, then they could pick 5 bucks off you for a glass of their hooch.  They quit calling it just beer and created the craft lager and ale market.

swf+obama-beer

From there it was just a matter of scaling things up and signing up more rubes (with some more grease, of course) to buy their dishwater basement brau in the supermarket or gas station.  All that for what we used to call cheap malt liquor. The stuff is nasty, bitter and sweet flavored at the same time.  Then they started throwing apples, blueberries, oranges, and similar adulterants in to get the ladies onboard.  Chumps and snobs.

Allsopps-India-Pale-Ale-Labels-Samuel-Allsopp--Sons-Ltd_50616-1

Now you can’t get a Budweiser in a bar for all the taps that are dedicated to these and other “imported” (from Canada) bathtub gray water beverages. Well, you can just drink this overpriced crap with dead rats in it if you want.  If I want a malt liquor, I’m getting a Mickey’s or a Cobra, something that burns going down, not something that gives you a sinus headache and makes my breath smell like Chanel No. 5.  Go for it, it’s not my money.

walpurgisnacht2

I’m working up a Wiccan article for Walpurgisnacht, April 30, so just be patient, and if I don’t give you one, well if you are following this blog you are also used to being disappointed, and you expected as much, so it can’t get any worse now, can it? Have a Nice Day!  Go pop one for me.

1920px-LIFE_magazine_logo.svg

I know a lot of you have been waiting with baited breath for my next post, but I’ve been busy; unlike you I’ve been busy with this thing called Life.  Oh sure, I’m still putting in 110% for you but now I have to put in 210% just to keep up with life too.  And unlike you I don’t have a lot of “free time” on my hands jerking at work on your computer while you should be working on that spreadsheet and graph to make your boss look better.  I also don’t want to waste your time with posts that are about nothing at all, although I happen to know you have a lot of time and something else on your hands.  Unlike other bloggers my posts are always full of useful and important content, not just me blabbing about how I was constipated yesterday but now I’m okay.  Who wants to read something like that?  Other bloggers think you want to know whenever they pick their nose.  Nobody wants that.  Even somebody as important as the President of the United States, you wouldn’t want to know when he picks his nose, now would you?  So I don’t waste your already worthless life with things that are not relevant to it and are all about me.

ecclesiastes-31-8

Be patient, as it says in Ecclesiastes:  there is a time for everything, or something like that.

That International Feel post wasn’t that great.  I’m a big man, in more ways than one, so I’m big enough to admit it was a D minus effort, but that’s water under the bridge, as they say.  Unlike most of you I don’t make the same mistake twice so you don’t have to wait for another opportunity to poke your finger in my eye.  Ain’t gonna happen.  Get over it.

 

NSA

NSA Liberty

Hey, I bought this NSA t-shirt from Woot.com.  The folks over there know about real patriotism.  It says “NSA” but if you look really close it has all these little quotes from The Constitution,  Thomas Jefferson, and Thomas Paine, and their ilk, about freedom that makes up the NSA letters.  I don’t expect many of you to know much about this or these guys but they are the true patriots of history and said way back then (18th century) that the NSA was bad and was going to spy on American citizens if somebody wasn’t vigilant and rat out the “Organization.”  Back then the NSA just peeped in your window and opened your mail, but now it’s way more sophisticated as I’ve pointed out in previous posts.  Pretty cool, huh?  I suppose if I wear it in Washington “somebody” will just stick a microscopic poison pellets in my leg and that’ll be it.  One of those cardboard box campers will end up wearing my shirt.  The price of freedom.

cardboard

Well I just wanted you to know I wasn’t dead but I’m also not one of those bloggers to put up a long post about nothing at all just so I can see my name in print.  So until the muse calls again, I’ll be silent.

Vive la France!

french flag

I’ve been reading a bit of history (get over it, I’m smarter than you are.) recently and I began to wonder why the US has considered the United Kingdom to be their closest ally seemingly forever.  After all we (the US, I mean) fought two wars against Britain (and kicked their ass both times even though Britain was supposedly unbeatable at the time).  Britain is also the only country that ever attacked the continental US (we beat their ass that time as well).  At the same time the French were allies against Britain even sending their army and navy over to help us beat the British asses, and probably saved us in the Revolutionary War (that’s the Colonial War in North America for the limeys here).  France is a republic, and has been for a long time now, while the UK is still a detestable hereditary monarchy.  Other than a mostly common language, why is Britain considered our big buddy?

425px-Gilbert_du_Motier_Marquis_de_Lafayette

General Lafayette

I really think France should be celebrated as the United States’ closest and best ever ally, not the UK.  I’m liking that.  France gave us the Statue of Liberty too.  What did Britain ever give us except onerous taxes, no representation, killing a bunch of us, and burning down the White House too.  Well, there is Dr. Who.  So I still say screw the UK and Vive la France!

01ec9174ccdb84e6138f073b4353ab4a_large

As a side note, I live near a place where the Battle of Great Cane Brake was in 1775.  There were no British soldiers just loyalists-Tories and Americans (he, he).  It wasn’t a big battle but it is in most books.  The Americans were sick of having all their crops and livestock impressed for the British.  They ambushed the loyalists and ran ’em off.  Good riddance to bad rubbish I say.  They celebrate it every year with a re-enactment.  I like seeing all the loyalists laying on the ground at the end.  Oh, and I don’t live too far from Kings Mountain and Cowpens and we roughed up the cowardly Bloody Tarleton and his loyalist rabble there too.  So when somebody says that the British are our best ally, I think:  when did some French guy ever try to kill an American on American soil?  The French and Indian wars don’t count because they were fighting the wretched British back then.  We colonists weren’t smart enough then to know which side our bread would soon be buttered on.  We still thought that loopy King liked us “subjects.”

Digression #2.  My heritage is Scottish/Irish and a bit of Dane mixed in.  I have to think some wise-ass limey hereditary Dook or Lord was responsible for making my ancestors’ lives so unbearable that they felt they had to make a treacherous journey to some far flung wilderness in the New World just to survive.  This thought kind of bums me out as well.  I’ll get my bit of petty revenge though when the Scots vote to bail out of the whole wretched mess of hereditary monarchy soon.  I’m sure the rest of the Irish and the Welsh won’t be too far behind.  Then the British Isles will make the Balkans look like a collection of big countries.

Anarchy in the Ukraine

ukraine-protests-reutersv1

Russian Backed Ukraine Crackdown

Update:  Well now the former (yeah, right) Soviet Republic of Russia has invaded the former Soviet Republic of Ukraine.  If people didn’t think that the former Soviet Republic of Georgia wasn’t just a Russian warm-up to imperialistically invading, occupying, and ultimately reabsorbing parts that were formerly the USSR, well then you’re just plain stupid.  This is going to make American imperialism look naive by comparison and the Yugoslavian breakup look like a day in the park.  Too bad nobody but the poor Ukranians on the ground are going to fight against it.  

If this had happened to say West Germany in 1972 would we be sitting around on our asses and just wringing our hands?  What do we have all these nuclear weapons for?  If the enemy doesn’t credibly think you will use them, then we might as well throw them all away.

Oh, and why does the media keep calling it an invasion of the Crimea?  If somebody invaded California they wouldn’t say California was invaded, they’d say the United States of America had been invaded.  Let’s call a spade a spade:  the Ukraine has been invaded.

What happens when they start invading places that weren’t even part of the USSR?  I believe we in the West will eventually look on the USSR as “the good ol’ days.”

While the Soviet Union, er, I mean the former Soviet Republic of Russia hosts the the Wintercon, in Sochi their puppet government in the Ukraine continues to violently oppose the will of their own people to have closer ties to the EU in the hopes of someday joining this confederation of peaceful autonomous states.

Crimean Welcoming Committee

This just proves once again that thetyrannical country of the Soviet Union, er, I mean Russia never

deserved the choice of being the Olympic host.  Politics of the IOC swindle awarded these games to a communist, er, I mean country run by a violent dictator.  In fact that the entire winter games have been ruled by corruption.  It is clear that the people of Sochi, except for the corrupt government stooges, hate that they were even picked for the venue.  The Olympic village itself, especially athlete accommodations are a shambles, and outside the village itself is a dangerous host city run by the Soviet, er, I mean Russian mob.  This city is also one of the worst areas in the country for ethnic and gender hatred and violence.

The entire mess shows how corrupt the IOC is itself, full of kickbacks and kiss up politicians.  The current games are a disgrace and just should have never been held at all.
