    Yay, more debt.

    An article on Yahoo which, if you read between the lines, suggests to me that Russia's global ambitions are to form an empire like England's in its heyday, with 21st Century-style colonies in our hemisphere (Cuba, Venezuela, Nicaragua) feeding the empire, and the Ruble as a world reserve currency instead of the dollar. Yahoo mocked the concept, but not me. Putin may be re-forming a larger union of states to boost Russia's economy and power. Can't think of any other reason why.

    You're correct, and the author really underestimates the fragility of the whole system right now. Wall Street fell just on the announcement that Russia was sending trrops into Crimea.

    As I have been reading this no where has Russia said it is going to invade the Ukraine as a whole. It is only protecting the Crimean penisula which is mostly Russian people anyway. I really think this is being blown out of proporation by our media to distract from the mid-terms.

    This will require me to work 34 seconds longer than the 4 months I had to work this year to pay all my taxes.

    Yes, Hitler annexed Austria and the Sudetanland for the exact same reason.

    Re: Obama to give Ukraine 1 Billion in aid

    John-R, there would have been nothing, or no one to stop Putin from a complete take over of the Ukraine when he moved into Crimea if he had wanted to. So far I haven't seen his invasion path but if he came by land he had to travel quite a ways over Ukraine land by the sea just to get to the penisula. And there are a lot of Russian people in that area but he didn't try to "free" them, did he?
    Only time will tell if he wants to push it further but I just don't see that happening. Crimea strategically is very important for Russia - the rest of the Ukraine, not so much.

    I would think the pipelines in the Ukraine that pump natural gas from Russia to the rest of Europe are somewhat important.

    My math shows it comes out to $14.00 for each person that pays taxes. If you make that in 34 seconds that means you make close to $1500.00 dollars per hour.

    The Ukraine owes Russia a butt load of money for the natural gas they use. Guess thats where the money will go.
