    Def. Sec'y Chuck Hagel's call to the Ukraine military complex in Kiev was refused -- no one would talk to him.

    Venezuelan protestors are rioting against the authoritarian rule of the successor to Hugo Chavez and demanding a return to democracy, the same issue in Ukraine 7,000 miles away. At least six others, besides the beauty queen, have died in the protests there.

    The "great irony"?? The people of Ukraine and Venezuela are taking to the streets, risking their lives, their safety, their freedoms, to demand democracy. But here in the United States of America, the very cradle of democracy, we are letting a Little Marxist Dictator steal it from us!!

    Why are we not doing something?

    Due credit to Odrama, he said they better not cross the line. What, nor where the line is was left out - probably so he can deny it in a few days.

    If people ever rise up here they need to play his words over and over as to how terrible it is for police to fire on their own people!

    Uprising in America? Gunna have to be the old guys - most of the young have been brainwashed at school.

    Obama's friends are Putin and the late Chavez. Obama is lined up with the oppressors.

    The great irony here is that if d-CON is not promoting blind allegiance to Likud, he is fomenting revolt right here in the states....

    The revolt needs to occur with the upcoming midterm elections, like it did in 1994.

    DCONN....the natural state of man is war....that's why I support a strong military however there needs to be a purpose to it. In the economic state the US of A is in, what plausable benefit would we have to go to war with a country (Russia) that has nothing to offer us except some oil fields and possibly borscht?

    In the context I was using it in....... real def: russian for grandmother. Eastern Europeans are very protective and sentimental and protective of them. You cant get a good home cooked meal without them.

    I think we can cut the American voters some slack for initially electing B.O. but they also re-elected him. They also elected a majority of Senate Dems. So we cannot lawfully bring about change and hope until the election of 2016.

    We might take a majority in the Senate in 2014, but there would still be more than 1/3 needed to block conviction for not faithfully executing the laws.

    So we sit and wait and and wait and wait. Rick's cafe anyone?

    I'm talking about impeaching the Little Marxist Dictator in the White House. That's the plaint of the OP, that the people of Ukraine and Venezuela are fighting for democratic rule, while we are throwing ours away.
