Is It Getting Real?

Back in the 60's there was a comedic movie starring Ernie Kovacs, "Wake Me When It's Over."

I pretty much feel that way now.

From the NY Slimes:
SIMFEROPOL, Ukraine — As Russian-backed armed forces effectively seized control of Ukraine’s Crimean peninsula on Saturday, President Vladimir V. Putin of Russia requested —and received — authorization from the Russian Senate to use military force in Ukraine.

The actions signaled publicly for the first time the Kremlin’s readiness to intervene militarily in Ukraine, and it served as a blunt response to President Obama, who just hours earlier pointedly warned Russia to respect Ukraine’s sovereignty.

Within hours after receiving Mr. Putin’s request, Russia’s upper house of parliament, the Federation Council, voted to approve it, after a debate that warned of the apocalyptic consequences of failing to stop a fascist threat from spreading to Russia’s borders. The lawmakers direct considerable fury at President Obama and others in the West they accused of fomenting the upheaval in Ukraine.
And to stir the pot even more, the Rooskies want to recall their ambassador to the US.
MOSCOW (Reuters) - Russia's upper house of parliament will ask President Vladimir Putin to recall Moscow's ambassador from the United States, the chamber's speaker said on Saturday.

Valentina Matviyenko, the head of the Federation Council, asked the Council's Committee on Foreign Affairs to draw up a proposal setting out the demands to Putin.

I think every country should have a community organizer as their leader and a drunken lesbian as Secretary of State.

Yeah I'm referring to Kerry.

Well, the Bible makes a reference or two about heaven being to the north. They say that the North Star is growing. Maybe someone is getting ready to make us a visit. It would seem like a good time.

Gorges - Not yet; "there will be wars and rumors of wars" I believe is how it goes. But soon, real soon.

If it were just the politicians, America would have been overrun decades ago.

Laughing stock? We've been saying it for 6 years now. It's not enough. It doesn't even come close to describing the reality of the situation.

The only thing that stands between us and the evil are Nuklar submarines and the knowledge that Americans are still in charge of the freakin things.

The Only thing with a capital F.

The community organizer/president, the cowardly stuffed shirt SECSTATE, the drunk SECDEF and the former first lady who wants to be queen of Amerika mesh well with people like Slow Joe Biden, who is only a heartbeat away from the big chair.

Truth be told, there isn't one of them who could pour sand out of a boot.

Do you really think that highly of Kerry?

LL< Imagine many of these POS's actually having to hold down a job in the private sector. It's occurred to me lately...

I'll bet half of them at least wouldn't be able to hold down a position at mcdonalds. Very seriously.

Another thought comes to mind. Anyone who has worked in the business world will understand this. Promoting incompetency to the highest levels as a way of getting them out of your life. Many middle managers are morons with a capital F.
