Dick Morris did a piece on Putin getting himself into a pickle.

Putin is backing down on the referendum on Russian rule in Eastern Ukraine. As Dick points out, if they lost that referendum, it would be a repudiation of Putin's claim that Ukrainians want to be part of Russia. If the referendum passed, he'd about have to envade to "protect" the embattled Russian minority.

Dick says the Ukrainian military isn't much, but the Ukranian people are pretty well armed and DO NOT WANT to be part of Russia. He says there are 40+ million Ukranians, probably 30 mil don't want to be part of Russia. Putin's invasion could be a very expensive blood bath for both sides. Dick pointed out that Germany lost several divisions during WWII to Ukranian underground fighters. Putin for sure knows that history.

So, until a people is disarmed, they're a formidable force to contend with.

The libs need to learn some history...

Authoritarians know full well what they are doing. While their Blue Team is scaring folks with talk of Scary Persons with Guns, their Red Team is scaring other folks with talk of Scary Persons with Bad Intentions to Hurt Families.

Neither side is our friends. They both are pitting the Pro-Corporatists against the pro-workers, using the traditional wedge issues such as guns, abortion, drugs, and sin.

Never trust the government under its current leadership and I believe everyone should be questioning what Homeland Security is really doing, is it here to protect the people or is it really here to protect the government from its people.

Never trust ANY government that claims a monopoly on the use of force and legalizes theft and other crimes only if it is perpetrator.
