Remember #FreeSavchenko ? This was a Twitter campaign aimed to bring attention to the imprisonment of the Ukrainian helicopter pilot Nadezhda Savchenko. All the Western media was abuzz with the news of this heroic woman imprisoned by the Terrible Putin’s regime. Newspapers and magazines were publishing stories about her and her life. Television Muse Outlets ran long segments about her heroic fight against the evil Kremlin. People were showing up to rallies and demonstrations holding up her name.
Time flies by, and now that this obviously mentally unstable individual is in prison again, this time the Ukrainian prison, no one seems to care. You don’t even hear it anywhere in the news. CNN is not talking about it, neither does the Fox News Network. It’s completely gone off the face of the Earth. What happened? This just happened 4 years ago. And now we don’t even hear about it.
I do not hear any word from the state department, which used to have such strong and publicly loud opinions all the time. What are we paying our taxes for? Why did we even sponsor that fucking regime change in Ukraine? It’s not like any American actually cares about what goes on outside of his fence. (I am not even sure that many Americans can point out Ukraine on a map)
We give millions of dollars to this country every year in a form of aid, but we don’t seem to care.
Does that sound like rational decision making to you?
Stop wasting our tax dollars trying to overthrow the world!
August of 2017 turned out to be a hot month for poker in Ohio. And since we have NO online poker sites to turn to for satellites, (thank you, US government) we must play the live versions. Luckily, both Hollywood Columbus Casino and Jack Cincinnati Casino decided to have their poker series within a week of each other.
As you know I have min-cashed at the Columbus kickoff $350 event, so I was riding high with the hopes of another solid performance. I got all my ducks in a row. Took two days off work, to make sure I can play both starting days if things don’t go my way on the first try. Got my bankroll ready. Even hit a cash giveaway for a thousand bucks just to make sure I have enough wiggle room in my bankroll to play. Poker Gods however, had different plans.
Unfortunately for all my well laid plans, I caught a cold a day before the kickoff event, and ended up spending both of my days off, and the whole weekend, with the miserable sniffles. I heard that most of the events didn’t even make their guarantees, and I did not get a chance to grab my slice of the pie. So sad. I think I need go get a flu shot. It’s been over a decade since I’ve been vaccinated.
This is truly terrible. Jennifer Psaki, the former spokesperson for the US State Department is now an “expert” on CNN. This is the same woman that never had any clue of what was going on. She always had to “check with the office”. I knew she was worthless when she threatened to land the 6th fleet “on the coast” of Belarus. (In case you do not know, Belarus is a small, land-locked country in the Eastern Europe. It has no access to the coast.).
And now this “victim of the American education system” is offering up “expert” opinions on a national news network. Geez, CNN. How low can you sink? Talk about scraping the bottom of the barrel.
