Snow Snow Snow and By Golly Some More Snow in Our Part of Russia…

So that cup of coffee is really good today as I look out the window into Russia. The snow is falling so hard that I can not see the buildings around the complex. So an article on snow seemed good… Sveta made a big mistake the other day! It is the same mistake that I usually make and it has…

Today Lets Remember What We Did To Libya: We (USA) are Stupid and Immoral…

When Muhammad bin Halim stepped out of his front door in Benghazi one September morning, he waved at his neighbor before walking toward his candy-apple-red Hyundai. When the head of the financial-crimes unit in the Libyan Interior Ministry opened the door, a bomb exploded, sending him to the ground and showering him with debris.

The Raptor’s Eye in Washington, DC: General Petraeus, JIEDDO and Auntie’s Pervert* by John Stanton…

This is especially true in California, where “justice” has become a joke, and…

Interesting Thoughts Over a Cup of Coffee: International Passports…

I would say that from what I am seeing, 50% of most people in their home country have a international passport. I believe that it is much higher than that figure in Russia… In fact I…

Thanksgiving in Russia… (2012)
