George Carlin. I’m a modern man…

I’m a modern man, a man for the millennium. Digital and smoke free. A diversified multi-cultural, post-modern deconstruction that is anatomically and ecologically incorrect. I’ve been up linked and downloaded, I’ve been inputted and outsourced, I know the upside of downsizing, I know the downside of upgrading. I’m a high-tech low-life. A cutting edge, state-of-the-art bi-coastal multi-tasker and I can give you a gigabyte in a nanosecond!
I’m new wave, but I’m old school and my inner child is outward bound. I’m a hot-wired, heat seeking, warm-hearted cool customer, voice activated and bio-degradable. I interface with my database, my database is in cyberspace, so I’m interactive, I’m hyperactive and from time to time I’m radioactive.

Behind the eight ball, ahead of the curve, ridin the wave, dodgin the bullet and pushin the envelope. I’m on-point, on-task, on-message and off drugs. I’ve got no need for coke and speed. I’ve got no urge to binge and purge. I’m in-the-moment, on-the-edge, over-the-top and under-the-radar. A high-concept, low-profile, medium-range ballistic missionary. A street-wise smart bomb. A top-gun bottom feeder. I wear power ties, I tell power lies, I take power naps and run victory laps. I’m a totally ongoing big-foot, slam-dunk, rainmaker with a pro-active outreach. A raging workaholic. A working rageaholic. Out of rehab and in denial!

I’ve got a personal trainer, a personal shopper, a personal assistant and a personal agenda. You can’t shut me up. You can’t dumb me down because I’m tireless and I’m wireless, I’m an alpha male on beta-blockers.

I’m a non-believer and an over-achiever, laid-back but fashion-forward. Up-front, down-home, low-rent, high-maintenance. Super-sized, long-lasting, high-definition, fast-acting, oven-ready and built-to-last! I’m a hands-on, foot-loose, knee-jerk head case pretty maturely post-traumatic and I’ve got a love-child that sends me hate mail.

But, I’m feeling, I’m caring, I’m healing, I’m sharing– a supportive, bonding, nurturing primary care-giver. My output is down, but my income is up. I took a short position on the long bond and my revenue stream has its own cash-flow. I read junk mail, I eat junk food, I buy junk bonds and I watch trash sports! I’m gender specific, capital intensive, user-friendly… -->

Nobel Committee Asks Obama To Return Peace Prize

Thorbjorn Jagland, chairman of the Nobel Peace Prize Committee, said today that President Obama “really ought to consider” returning his Nobel Peace Prize Medal immediately, including the “really nice” case it came in.

Jagland, flanked by the other four members of the Committee, said they’d never before asked for the return of a Peace Prize, “even from a damnable war-criminal like Kissinger,” but that the 10% drawdown in US troops in Afghanistan the President announced last week capped a period of “non-Peace-Prize-winner-type behavior” in 2011.  “Guantanamo’s still open. There’s bombing Libya. There’s blowing bin Laden away rather than putting him on trial. Now a few US troops go home, but the US will be occupying Afghanistan until 2014 and beyond. Don’t even get me started on Yemen!”

The Committee awarded Obama the coveted prize in 2009 after he made a series of speeches in the first months of his presidency, which convinced the Peace Prize Committee that he was: “creating a new climate of…multilateral diplomacy…an emphasis on the role of the United Nations…of dialogue and negotiations as instruments for resolving international conflicts…and a vision of world free of nuclear arms.”

“Boy oh boy!” added Jagland. “Did we regret that press release!”

Thorbjorn Jagland and members of the Nobel Peace Prize Committee
celebrate Norway’s annual aquavit tasting festival.

But, he revealed the committee members were all “legless drunk” the day they voted, as it was the start of Norway’s annual aquavit-tasting festival. The “totally toasted” members listened over and over to replays of Obama’s Cairo speech, tearing up and drinking shots to the glorious future: a black man leading America and the world into a new era of peace, hope and goodwill. “For a few hours we were all 18 year-old students again at the beautiful, occasionally sunny University of Bergen! Oh, how we cried for joy!”

The chairman said the committee weren’t “going to be pills” about getting the Prize back because they still “basically really liked” Mr. Obama and that sending it back in a plain package by regular mail would be fine if it would save him the embarrassment of a public return. But added Jagland, “things could get nasty” if the committee didn’t see it… -->

Media is quick to jump into Cold War

Here I am, peacefully reading this article in BusinessWeek about the recent shooting at Charlie Hebdo in Paris where criminals shot several people to death. The article is interesting as it talks about the origins of violence towards those who dare to create dissenting satire and evoke laughter at the corruption of powerful and sacred.

Suddenly, halfway through the article it turns into an unfounded rhetoric about the “iron fist of Putin” in Russia and false interpretations of the quasi-political dissent in Soviet Union in the last century. What gives?

BusinessWeek is hardly an independent magazine but it was not yellow press either, as far as I remember. Amazing to see how quickly most media joined the Cold War on Russia with all the anti-Russian hysteria building up now. I cannot name any mainstream Western or U.S. magazines or newspapers that would write anything close to the truth about Russia anymore.… -->

Ukraine: the second failed invasion of Kremlin

Today, July 15, Russia had to treacherously attack the Ukraine. But it has not attacked, treacherously. Although the intelligence was complete. I personally read “Facebook” of Tymchuk’s helmet. The helmet told us that the concentration of Russian troops near the border with Ukraine reached critical proportions. A sniper works in forest plantations, who comes to work with a “motocross bike.” After each successful shot he laughs mockingly. That maniacal laughter literally freezes the blood in the veins of even the most seasoned fighters from territorial defense unit Ternopil.

In general, all signs of the invasion are there. Thousands of saboteurs. Naturally, from GRU of the Russia’s Defense Ministry. They showed their IDs to Tymchuk from afar so that he could copy the data. Moreover, the border patrol discovered unidentified troops of gunmen in flippers illegally crossing the Ukrainian-Russian border. They ferried across the river in the Sumy region, remove flippers and literally dissolve into the background areas. However, there is material evidence – the legendary canned meat from the plant in Mtsensk, which betrays Russian origins of the Donetsk Republic. The other day one such tin was demonstrated to the foreign diplomats as evidence of suicidal Russian presence in the heart of the “anti-terrorist operation”. Or in the liver of the same. I do not really understand the military terminology adopted by the “Informational resistance” group of Tymchuk. Diplomats carefully sniffed the used product. Some even licked. No one dared to suck. You never know … all those Russian saboteurs. They are treacherous.

Information about the invasion was confirmed by the driver Serge. He talked in the parking lot with a driver that drives a high rank of the SBU around. So, he told that his patron is scared shitless, packs things, evacuates family and burns secret documents in the toilet, bringing his wife to histerics. Everything smells of smoke. Even the cat hesitates to go in there. Here you are, there is evidence from two completely independent from intelligence sources, but the invasion still did not follow. What the …

Importantly, on the night of the 13th a Russian column crossed the border and almost invaded, but changed their mind at the last moment, because the… -->

Ukraine: U.S. State Department issues a protest

The U.S. State Department has expressed strong protest against the non-intervention of the armed forces of Russia in Ukraine’s internal affairs. “Further delay of a decision on the guilt of Russia increases the costs of all stakeholders and reduces the investment attractiveness of shale gas and other natural resources in Ukraine. The cowardly policy of the Kremlin, avoiding direct military support of the separatists, and representing themselves as a humble “reconstructor” breaks all the rules of negotiation between partners and humiliates the authority of Western values​.”

Any further disregard by Russia of the demands to de-escalate the conflict in Ukraine will confer on Russia the full responsibility for the consequences of the introduction of our third block of sanctions, which include:

– blockade of tourist flow from Russia to Turkey, Spain, Greece, Switzerland, Cannes and Venice;
– forced bankruptcy of banks in France, Germany and Austria for funding companies with ties to Russia;
– forcible termination of related industries in Germany and France with an increase in shitty unemployment;
– sanctions against European companies cooperating with Russia and especially those that supply luxury cars, perfume, diamonds and jewelry, fur and leather products, as well as high-end plumbing;
– appointment of Ms. Jennifer Psaki to the posts of UN Secretary General and the President of FIFA World Cup;
– increase of the supply of rocket engines and metals from Russia for the needs of American industry. ”

U.S. said the goal of the new round of sanctions will be to change the Russian calculation in its alleged sponsorship of separatists in Ukraine. Anger in Washington and Brussels was exacerbated by the continued insistence of Russia on unlawful negotiations with civil militants in Eastern Ukraine.
