Line to see Sen. Rand Paul vs line to see Former Senator Rick Santorum
I’m hearing from various sources that there are strong fascist elements in Ukraine’s new quasi government since the other guy got run out. Can anyone confirm this?
Right now I see a best case scenario for the world as just allowing Russia to do what it pleases in regards to Crimea (annexation, puppet government). We need to accept that this is what will happen, Russia isn’t going to pull out at this point.
A far worse case scenario would be a Ukrainian civil war between the very divided east and west, this is more likely given fascist actions by the central government and oligarch governors being appointed in the pro-Russian Eastern parts of the country. That is the picture I’m seeing based on certain sources I read. Russia would at least be involved clandestinely in this war, possibly overtly. The United States/CIA would be funding/arming the West.
The military industrial complex in the United States wanted a pro-West Ukraine that it could heavily arm and “defend” from Russia to the tune of billions of dollars in contracts in military aid. Now they may just get a second best scenario (in the eyes of the immoral and evil military industrial complex) with a civil war. We must be on alert if a civil war breaks to see what sort of forces are fighting on the western side, there is a high likelihood of there being fascist elements. Given that the United States supported Al Qaeda and affiliates in Libya and Syria, I wouldn’t put it past the Obama administration to get into a covert war there with “Freedom Fighters” aka fascists.
What are your reads on the situation in Ukraine? I’m hoping it all stops in Crimea, but international affairs involve many dominoes…

Businesses can’t use conscience to refuse serving a gay wedding.

The media’s solution to homophobia is to force homophobes to take money from gay couples, and for gay couples to patronize homophobic businesses.
An awful lot of progressives really want to patronize homophobic businesses… Weird.
On Jan. 4, 2010, when my boss saw my letter to the editor in the New York Times, we had a little chat. It was rare for the federal security director at Chicago O’Hare to sit down with her floor-level Transportation Security Administration officers—it usually presaged a termination—and so I was nervous as I settled in across the desk…
Confessions of an Ex-TSA Agent
Definitely worth the read.
"I quickly discovered I was working for an agency whose morale was among the lowest in the U.S. government. In private, most TSA officers I talked to told me they felt the agency’s day-to-day operations represented an abuse of public trust and funds.”
Shut it down. Just shut it down.
This is why I always “opt-out!” when going through airport security theater. I have no interest in going through a cronyist radiation-porno scanner. Many of my female friends say they are always “selected” for “additional screening” by the perverts in the agency. Makes my blood boil.
The death penalty at the hands of the State is not pro-life
I can’t even…
Our government is a racket…
What’s scary is that my opinion on the undocumented immigrants in our country changed most when I began to focus on the fact that I was dealing with human beings.
