    Thanks NW – great selection.

    Interesting that some grand juries get it – while those in Ferguson take months to not get it.

      Thanks to Mitch McConnell & Co. His starved and deluded population show no signs that they will wake up.

    “Between the beginning of the ‘ceasefire’ (00:00 on 02.15.2015) and yesterday mid-afternoon, Russian-terrorist forces have been grossly violating the [latest Minsk] agreement, by repeatedly shelling the positions of Ukrainian troops and civilian targets. After the beginning of the truce, the first strike was carried out by terrorists on the night of 02.15, from positions in the area of Stakhanov (where a battery of howitzers opened fire).

    Since mid-afternoon yesterday, the enemy, in addition to attacks from almost all types of weapons, has also made repeated attempts to resume the offensive. Ukrainian troops are only opening fire in retaliation. The most difficult situation is in the Debaltseve springboard.

    clip

    Marauding has become more commonplace at ‘DNR’ [Donetsk People’s Republic] roadblocks, where civilians are being openly robbed now. According to the terrorists themselves, they are no longer being paid a salary, and have to “live off the land.””

    Out of control …..

      Bob, this has grown increasingly desperate.
      Do you see any solution?

      • February 16, 2015 at 7:38 pm

        Vicki, if we define ‘solution’ as restoration of Ukraine’s territorial integrity and sovereignty, then a massive effort to inform all Russians what Putin is actually doing in my opinion is a critical component.

        That + massive infusion of financial support to Kyiv to build Ukraine’s economy + Ukrainians being willing to suffer a protracted conventional war might result in new Kremlin leadership. As long as Putin remains on his delusional, messianic mission no solution consistent with the rule of law, specifically, Ukraine’s territorial integrity and sovereignty is possible.

        Fact is, Ukraine and Russia have been fighting a conventional war for many months and only today did European ‘leaders’ begin to state the obvious, Russian forces invaded Ukraine!!

        So, with that much denial and the inherent non-linearity of any war, it’s likely a bunch more Russians and Ukrainians are going to perish before any form of solution emerges.

          Terrible prospect. Bob, thank you so much for this truthful answer. It is hard for me to accept all the diplomatic theater we have witnessed in the past few weeks. As you were pointing out all along it was going to be futile. A charade.

          I fear much the same thing is happening with Iran talks. Compounded by the appalling Bibi.

          • February 16, 2015 at 9:13 pm

            Vicki, I’m more hopeful with Iran than I’ve ever been with the situ in Ukraine. Iranian leadership wants none of the messianic craziness that is driving Putin. They really want to get on with becoming the most vibrant economy in Central Asia/Mideeast.

      I think the GOP thinks it IS doing its job. I bet their owners are happy.

      To me it is looking like open warfare against PBO and his administration.

      • 35 99ts
        February 16, 2015 at 7:11 pm

        Definitely open warfare against the American people – they won’t even fund the government – the one part of their role one thinks they would take seriously.

      Yes, Dudette, this story would be upsetting even if Bibi was not in the process of defying established international protocols and addressing Congress despite the stated views of POTUS, the Dems in Congress, the leaders of the largest jewish groups in the US and so on.

      Leaking details about ongoing talks!!! OMG. And still Boehner has not retracted his nutso invitation.

      The foreign Bully intends to come in front of our legislators and present his views which are the opposite of US Foreign Policy. unbelievable.

    re: the tweet: Washington inheriting 10 slaves when he was 10….full stop:…wrap you mind and heart around an 11 year old boy owning people as property…..

    So much in the headlines re: Racists….

    racists in the police department….racists in the Congress including one that we know is a card carrying member of the klan…better know as the nite riders…racists sitting on the bench….racists on the airways….archival pics and footage documenting the horrendous acts of racists…

    yet we black folks are called delusional….when we point these things out….who are we trying to convince any way..

    ****************

    re the AUMF…..that the president submitted to Congress…

    after asking that Congress their own ideas about moving forward on AUMF….and getting nothing…he submits his won….of course all we get is outcry… many who question if we are getting embroiled in yet another “War against terror”…

    PBO ended 2 wars…and stepped up his campaign against Al Qaeda….decimating their leadership….and now we have the ISIS threat..Unlike before…Muslim countries have been forced to join the fight against ISIS ….because they are in the direct line of fire…and as has been shown…their brutality against Muslims has no limit…they have shown to the Muslim world that they have no regard for Islam…

    Alas we do not have a Congress that is a worthy partner for the President…who is able to debate and fashion a policy that is just but that also keeps us as safe as is possible….
    they…the GOP…are about to shut down another part of the government.AGAIN ..this time DHS…the agency charged with keeping us safe….SCREAMINNNNNNN

    Hope everyone enjoyed the Valentines Day/ Presidents Day Weekend. I am awakening to the idea of treating myself instead of depending on some guy to buy me flowers and gifts. About time after being widowed seventeen years! I can enjoy life as a single lady. It only depends on my own realizing it.

      🙂 I enjoy being married – approaching 40 years – but would never do it again! Enjoy your single life – what I would love would be to eat when and what I want to eat – I could live with never again hearing “What’s for dinner” – followed by a discussion of what should be for dinner.

    😎 or what?

    How cool would it be to tell people you live inside of a wind turbine? Designed for the port city of Rotterdam, the Dutch Windwheel is a concept for a sustainable landmark that would be able to house 72 apartments within a circular steel and glass frame, while also serving as a silent, motionless wind turbine. In addition to harvesting energy from the wind, the structure would be equipped with facilities to capture rainwater, recycle tap water and also produce biogas from the residents’ organic waste.
