Direct quote for brevity's sake Wrabbit..
"However........ MOSCOW is turning back more Soviet than Russian and Vladimir Putin was a Colonel of the SOVIET UNION, not the Russian Federation, as
he built his career in the K.G.B.. How would we feel about a President who spent his whole life in the CIA?? That is Putin...and Putin owns RT. Lets
all just keep perspective on things, eh?"
Well put and bump quality; also the target space for our most effective presidents' past as well.
Where I was heading with that 'target space' wasn't to refute anything-- but my feelings about
ALL our chief executives' connection to Langley since Nixon, and maybe LBJ-- are mixed.
But if Bush 41 hadn't been a former Director, how effective with foreign policy would he have
been? And that 'whole life' deal is just as foggy as 'former' in regard to The Shop.. you're not
retired, ever. One of my real concerns, and maybe for others is how Sovietesque than anything
else D.C. is becoming... different puppet but look at the staying power of that Politbureau.
Transparency in the Beltway is evidently just as nonexistent as anywhere else, would you
agree? It would indicate surely to me that the Western media isn't getting the meat on the
bun either. We're all suceptible to hang at a certain set of spots that are 'reliable'--saves time.
My greatest flaw is coming around here and getting just the conspiracy slants. Bad habits...
Directly on thread-- nobody around here with the choice takes all their grist from one mill.
But in all fairness, I'm going back to read the whole thread and salt my shoes for dinner,
won't be the first time I was probably wrong. And your carrots are snappin' today bud..
no lacka vision.
Finally thanks for reminding me to regularly reconsider the sources on my long thrown out TV.
Glad I did it, except I miss the noise that forced me to do more thorough research than lately.
