    Before I go I will say this: I was marginally on the “Yes” side in the Greek referendum, because “No” presented such a miasma of unknowns. However, now that Greece has resoundingly voted “no”, it will be interesting to see what the rest of the Eurozone does to respond to a democratic rebuke. As the fake Chinese curse says, “May you live in interesting times”.

    But now, steak.

    On another matter of considerable importance – Putin Propaganda – a very important insight and strategy to counter it, emerges ….

    “Satire has long been the Achilles Heel of authoritarianism. Dictatorships are notoriously humorless, and history abounds with examples of oppressed and occupied nations which have managed to keep the spirit of resistance alive by resorting to black comedy. This was particularly true of the Soviet Union, where a flourishing subculture of anti-establishment anecdotes and gallows humour served to expose the façade of public adherence to official Communist dogma. Putin’s Russia may now be particularly vulnerable to this kind of comedic approach. Modern Russians tend to pride themselves on their worldly sense of humour, and Russian TV schedules are packed with all manner of hugely popular comedy shows lampooning every aspect of daily life – except domestic politics. The inhabitants of the Kremlin remain strictly off-limits to all but the most daring of Russian comics, creating an invitingly vacant niche which could be exploited to great effect by those looking to expose the inherent ridiculousness of the Putin regime.

    Ukraine’s Russian-language popular culture and deep familiarity with Russian society make it particularly well-placed to lead this process. As the current conflict with Russia has escalated, Ukrainian comedy troupe ‘Kvartal-95’ has been at the forefront of Ukrainian efforts to lampoon the Kremlin, producing a steady stream of brilliantly satirical material spoofing popular Russian narratives. Online mockery has also played a major role in Ukraine’s response to Russia’s hybrid war, with daily memes poking fun at the latest disinformation campaigns and absurdities to emerge from Moscow. This approach now needs to be replicated on a far larger scale.

    The tactics of the Cold War, which saw the Western powers counter Soviet propaganda by providing alternative news sources in traditional formats, will no longer work. Today’s jaded audiences need to be entertained – a lesson which the Kremlin has learned well. Whereas the Soviet media was famously dull and straight-laced, today’s Russian infowar is extremely entertaining, utilizing state-of-theart production values and dramatic presentation techniques straight out of a Hollywood blockbuster. The only thing it dare not do is laugh at itself. This is one area where the Western world has always excelled. Indeed, it could be argued that the ability to poke fun at its own institutions represents the essence of Western civilization. By responding to Russia’s infowar with Russian-language comedy content, the EU and the US could bypass the Russian public’s resistance to counter-propaganda, while also remaining true to their own core values. The Kremlin is currently winning the information war, but it is by no means assured of the last laugh.”

    For real, our guys are the best at this and just imagine if he calls in Jon Oliver, Colbert, et al …..

    Sad news…the co founder of Burt’s Bees has died.

    http://www.burtsbees.com/

    It is with broken hearts that we must convey the saddest news: Burt Shavitz, our co-founder and namesake, has left for greener fields and wilder woods. We remember him as a bearded, free-spirited Maine man, a beekeeper, a wisecracker, a lover of golden retrievers and his land. Above all, he taught us to never lose sight of our relationship with nature. Now it’s up to us, the brand he helped build—and you, his fans and advocates—to sustain his spirit and ideals. Thanks for everything, Burt. We’ll miss you.

    Sorry – I don’t necessarily disagree with everything Bernie Sanders says, unless he’s going after our President. But to most “routine” things he says, like this:

    Bernie Sanders ‏@BernieSanders Jul 4
    We have the moral obligation to do everything humanly possible to defend those men and women who defended us.

    I just want to tweet back.

    No shit, Sherlock.

    To me, he seems to have an extreme grasp of the obvious (most of which President Obama has already obviously said), and not much else.

    In other words, pass the salt, Sherlock.

              Along with keeping up good health, it is also critical to keep his spirits up. I did it with my sis and she is now one happy woman about to see her daughter getting married, come november. Glad know he is doing well on both fronts.

      “To me, he seems to have an extreme grasp of the obvious”

      YUP.

      And, he also has ZERO track record actually caring for our active duty military, their families and our veterans. ZERO.

      I’ll await VP Biden announcing his candidacy before I begin exposing Bernie for the fraud he is regarding our active duty warriors, their families and veterans. He and Ms Clinton have no credibility on that issue compared to VP Biden. NONE.

      good night TOD

    Greek Finance Minister Yanis Varoufakis has just resigned after Greek voters delivered an overwhelming “No” vote in a referendum on whether to accept more austerity measures in return for new bailout cash.

    “Soon after the announcement of the referendum results, I was made aware of a certain preference by some Eurogroup participants, and assorted ‘partners’, for my ‘absence’ from its meetings; an idea that the Prime Minister judged to be potentially helpful to him in reaching an agreement,” Varoufakis wrote on his personal blog.

    “For this reason I am leaving the Ministry of Finance today. “I consider it my duty to help [Prime Minister] Alexis Tsipras exploit, as he sees fit, the capital that the Greek people granted us through yesterday’s referendum. And I shall wear the creditors’ loathing with pride.”

      Can’t call the people you’re negotiating with terrorists who are trying to kill the Greek people, and expect them to continue to want to negotiate with you…
