k. last one on the interview. probably 🙂 putin gave another interview to a local russian reporter and said that he wasn’t clear enough (what i thought also). That he wasn’t afraid of an imminent attack by NATO on Russia (although of course the overall advance of NATO is unacceptable), but that Ukraine was massed and beginning to attack the Donbass again, near the border and he had made it clear that would not stand. (btw, he also filed a “right to protect” with the UN). The other thing is how disappointed he is with merkel especially, but also with france and the uk, for knowingly using the minsk agreements, not to bring peace, but to build up ukraine for the coming fight that they provoked. tunnels, arms, training, etc.

i also wish this would have come across more clearly in the interview. he was nervous. a very human man who tried for years to get a new security architecture in place as he faced the west’s “revolutions” in neighboring countries, then joining NATO, then arming and turning against russia. and we won’t give up. we’re turning to terrorism now that we’re losing.

putin is far from perfect,but I hope one day, the west has to admit what they’ve done here. as putin says, no one can beat the u.s. when it comes to propaganda. thanks for listening to my ted talk. off to work.

Slightly off-topic, jcb, but has Randy Rainbow been up to his usual hijinks lately? 🙂

Actually, haven’t seen anything new for a while from him.

Yesterday, in a DWT post, they referred to a Presidential Greatness Project Expert Survey which is done every year on Presidents Day rating the presidents from Best to worst (1 to 45). Guess where 45 landed. Lolol…

40- Warren Harding
41- William Harrison
42- Franklin Pierce
43- Andrew Johnson
44- James Buchanan
and the 45th best… in other words the absolute worst:

Donald J Trump, who scored even worse than he did last year. Based on a possible score of 100 (Lincoln, FDR and Washington were the only ones to score over 90), Señor Trumpanzee rates 10.92. He and Buchanan (the right-wing closet case who is blamed for starting the Civil War) are the only two with under 20 points.

I looked at your links, Aint. I was curious about where they ranked Andrew Jackson. Jackson was virulently racist, especially against native Americans. He should have been ranked lower, but that’s my opinion FWIW. 🙂
