Situation in Ukraine

Watching the events unfold in the ongoing war of words between Russia and Ukraine, I find it reletively unsurprising that +Vladimir Putin  would attempt something so bold. He’s causing mischief abroad to soak up support at home as a means of distracting the Russians from a practically free-falling economy. As a good means of keeping public support up at home meant attacking another sovereign nation within the "Near Abroad." By doing this, Putin's showed a complete disregard for any agreements that Russia's signed in helping to shape international law. In addition, it shows a complete disregard for any international law and national sovereignty of Russia's neighbors, this time being Ukraine. However, I will say this about Russians as a people: most are not like the current leadership in Moscow. As a people, they're largely docile and peaceful, and some of the most pleasant to be around. Another thing to bear in mind about Russian culture is that the people place a lot more emphasis on intellectuallism and pragmatism, rather than fierce ideology and violence.

All this mischief making was bound to get Putin in trouble sooner or later, and I think now it's pretty much gotten him in a deep hole. There's no denying it; even as events unfold in his favor, Putin's largely alienated any good will from national leaders (such as +Barack Obama and +Angela Merkel) that he needs to keep Russia afloat. Just as much as the West cannot get anywhere in solving problems without Russia, as history has proven time and again, the inverse is also true, as Russia cannot get anywhere solving problems at least current ones without the West. Both Obama and Merkel have noted a recent, yet disturbing, trend with Putin as of late, it's as if he's losing all connection to reality. If anything, an aggressive foreign policy and a leader whose spoken lines are badly slurred, it signals only one thing, a leader corrupted by vast power and money. Yet at the same time, Putin's also been saying several factors have to be strung together to get Russia's recognition of Ukraine's new governing administration, some of which do not coincide with each other. That's a sign also that someone's on the verge of a complete breakdown.

Turning to Ukraine, the deposed president of that nation, +Viktor Yanukovych, was an acolyte of Putin's, who only won the presidency in 2010 due to Putin's help. If anything, that's a classic case of Russia meddling in the affairs of its neighbors. Now that Yanukovych has lost power by fleeing to Moscow, he now has nothing to return to. The party that backed him, the Party of Regions, has said quite flatly they will not give him an ounce of support. It's apparent now that any return by Yanukovych to Ukraine would certainly see his arrest for his handling of the protests to start opening up the political rings to help solve problems, and his orders to violently suppress the protests in complete disregard of his citizen's lives. However, by fleeing to Russia, Yanukovych now has no connection to Ukraine at all, and now cannot credibly say anything on the people's behalf.

Dishonoring Our Nation’s Vets

Alright, I think that it’s better to start off by saying that the Republicans in Congress are complete chicken-hawks, and I’m being very kind in saying that. Basically, I don’t see why they can’t just bother to live up to the deal they made vets of this nation: don the uniform to defend us and we’ll cover your cost of living. That’s how it should be, but lately Republicans in Congress have been wrapping themselves in the flag, while paying lip service to the after-effects.

If anything, the Republicans have been using war and the troops as political pawns to gain any advantage in their quest to destroy the Democrats. This is beyond disgraceful, and it shows why the Republican Party has become the Party of Corruption. It needs to quit and do so now, if it wants to retain any credibility with the American electorate. If there’s anything that we as Americans dispise more than anything, it’s politicizing the military. The military is apolitical for a reason, it represents everyone and is a unified voice in our country’s defense.

Barack Obama on Fox News Superbowl Sunday

If Roger Ailes thought he could corner Barack Obama on policy, he just got served a rather cold truth: everything Ailes and company have said about the Affordable Care Act has been false.

State of the Union

I have to say that US President +Barack Obama is spot on in calling for 2014 to be a year of action. I'm with that 100% as it's really time to build America from within. We can't be going into foreign wars on a constant basis, we're not going to have the money to do so. It's time to turn to nation building here at home for a reason: our infrastructure is crumbling and we're just in the starting stages of a new health-insurance market system. More needs to be tweeked is the President's message, and he's right. So let's do this.

Allied Waste's Carelessness Returns

Holy cow, where am I going to start with this? These folks at +Allied Waste Services: A Republic Services Company are absolutely incredible. Just one week after I called +David Canepa on the phone to tell him that there were no more trash cans in the middle of the street, guess what: they're back!!! I have some photos so take a look and draw your own conclusions.

Trash brought back facing the wrong way.
Wheels need to be placed toward the curb.

Trash and recycling cans strewn all over the place.
Some are right in the middle of the street or in people's

And here's 2 more cans, one almost into the
street. The other is in the center of my
neighbor's driveway.

Partisan division.

If anything, I’ve only been hearing about how Democrats are like this or Republicans are like that. Well it’s time to end that kind of talk. I’m not going to say I’m an innocent party here, I’m not in the least. I’ll do my best to keep a lid on some rants when they seem to express that all Republicans are the same in any particular post. Let’s face it, not all Republicans are like Ted Nugent or Wayne LaPierre as that crowd only makes up about 10% of the Republican base. Those that are like that tend to be the most vocal.

It’s really time to look at things in a less partisan prism and more in the sense of what’s getting solved. Why we seem to be regressing instead of progressing is actually very clear: We have more demagogues in Congress than problem solvers. At the same time there’s an alarming rise in voter complacency not seen since 1856, and partly because of how the Americans lost faith in government following the Watergate Scandal in 1974.

Lastly, everyone should know that there are Moderates still in the Republican Party.

California in Drought

I saw a flash on the news this morning: Governor Brown declares state drought emergency | So looks as if +Jerry Brown has declared a state of emergency due to the low rainfall we've had so far and the recent wildfire outbreaks. I can't fault him for that as he's spot on. Well, let's try to conserve as much water as we can.
