Rand Paul On Ukraine

Sunday, March 9th, 2014

I don’t understand the Crimea situation as well as I should. Without a complete knowledge of world politics, I would have to trust a leader who offers a different view than this Iraq/Afghanistan/Libya/Syria Wars administration.  Here’s what I found from Rand Paul on ABC News:

Libertarian Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) said on Sunday that he would have responded to Russia’s invasion of Ukraine by “drilling every possible conceivable place” in the U.S. if he were president.

Following his Saturday win in the Conservative Political Action Conference presidential straw poll, Paul was asked by Fox News host Chris Wallace on Sunday if he was willing to let Russian President Vladimir Putin have the Ukraine peninsula of Crimea.

“If they annex Crimea, Ukraine will almost certainly come within the Western orbit,” Paul explained. “So, it will backfire on them. Because you will be taking Russian-speaking voters that have been speaking for Russian-speaking presidents of Ukraine, you’ll be taking them out of the population.”

“The other thing I’ve said is, that I would do something differently from the president,” the Kentucky Republican added. “I would immediately get every obstacle out of the way for our export of oil and gas.”

“And I would begin drilling in every possible conceivable place within our territories in order to have production we can supply Europe with if it’s interrupted from Ukraine.”

Does this sound good?  Of course it doesn’t sound good.  But as long as Putin is being an asshole, it sounds better than anything else I’ve heard.

Maybe I’m the only one who sees something here beyond basic underwear ads from the 1950’s.  Maybe the artist really was only trying to show the uh ‘flexibility’ of the product.  Hey – maybe the artist wasn’t gay.  And maybe the cow really did jump over the moon.

There Are Two Of Them?

Sunday, March 9th, 2014

Rochester, New York commissioned some internationally-recognized artists to create huge murals and this one landed right across the street from my building.  I’m certainly no art critic but I think it sucks.  Oral sex seems to be the BEST interpretation of it. My neighbors say it looks like two rats fighting and isn’t good for the image of the neighborhood.

The artist says it’s two bears hibernating.  Right. I think he should add a soundtrack.

Incredibly, yesterday I was viewing one of my favorite sites, MessyNessyChic, and this popped up.  This time the artist painted his mural in a secret, abandoned subway station ‘art gallery’ far beneath the streets of New York.  Good place for it. Check out the gallery:
