Venezuela is the latest example of what progressivism works out to be in a nutshell. Chavez, another idiot that gained power passing himself off as a man of the people, and buying votes by promising to rob his country’s producers in the name of some fabricated and idiotic social construct, has ruined what once was a growing and thriving economy. Sure Venezuela had problems and poverty before Chavez, but things are far, far worse, today. … Read more

Over the last week, Russia has been slowly dropping the pretense and invading the Ukraine with active troops, tanks and artillery pieces. Many of these soldiers, as with the earlier incursion into the crimea, are pretending to be rebels, which is technically a war crime.
As has been pointed out, the Ukraine is not the limit of Putin’s ambitions. He has claimed that he will rescue all ethnic Russians who are “threatened” which means … Read more
My post is about that crazy Uncle Ron Paul, but this morning I watched Obama’s tap dance in the Rose Garden, where he talked about accountability wrt the downed airline and mentioned the troubling news that the black boxes were absconded and hustled back to Russia. He wondered out loud what they had to hide. Naturally one has to snicker at any mention of accountablility, and as for hiding something, let’s see, 2 black boxes … Read more
I have always held the belief that today’s modern left is simply a modern day version of the old and corrupt aristocratic members of the feudal or guild systems of the middle ages – entities that closely guarded access to the benefits that membership provided, while lording it over everyone – and amounts to nothing but a protection racket for the connected. The progressive oligarchy smartened up however, knowing that simply doing business as usual, … Read more
This is why I stopped at just being a millionaire, being a billionaire has it’s own set of headaches;

A Swiss court has ordered a Russian billionaire to pay more than $4.5 billion to his ex-wife in what could become the biggest divorce settlement in history.
In papers delivered Monday to both parties, the Geneva Tribunal of First Instance said Dmitry Rybolovlev, an owner of the French soccer club AS Monaco, must pay 4,020,555,987.80
The Eurovision Song Contest just crowned it’s new 2014 winner. The 40 some year old song contest has given us the likes of ABBA, Celine Dion, and Julio Iglesias, but there is always room for another superstar…………OK, maybe not super;
I had to watch the first minute a second time to see if his junk was visable through that dress.
Some critics think it was the beard that did it.
From time to time folks … Read more
I am sorry, but my bullshit detector went on high alert when I saw this article titled Sociologists have found that sporty young men enjoy hopping into bed with other straight guys for a bit of nonsexual spooning. Are we to take this seriously?

‘‘I love a quick cuddle. Just so you remember your friends are around and are there for you.” This is John, a self-identified straight guy who took part in a
One of the most baffling developments of the 1980′s was the Cult of Mikhail Gorbachev. Gorbachev had his qualities. He was one of the few leaders in the Soviet Union who understood that the system wasn’t working and was absurdly corrupt (I met a general who identified Gorbachev as a potential reformer back in 1983). He reigned in some of the worst parts of the police state and, unlike his predecessors, did not use military … Read more
Let’s not beat around the bush. Russia has invaded the Ukraine, violating their sovereignty, breaking the treaty they signed and violating international rules of warfare. The Ukraine gave up their massive arsenal of nuclear weapons on the promise that the Russians would respect their sovereignty. That agreement is now dead.
The Russian excuse — that Crimea is ethnically Russian — is flimsy at best. Crimea is self-governing and is only 60% Russian. And Putin hasn’t … Read more
So the Ukraine’s murderous Russophile prime minster was driven out of Kyiv last week. Earlier today, the Ukraine parliament elected the opposition leader as PM. Everyone has been wondering what Russia is going to do now that they don’t have to pretend to be (sorta) nice for the Olympics.
I think we’re finding out:

Dozens of armed men seized the regional government administration building and parliament in Ukraine’s southern Crimea region Thursday and raised
