Aired on the Doomstead Diner on August 15, 2014
Discuss this Rant at the Podcast Table inside the Diner
…In the last rant, I covered a small subset of the Collective Insanity ongoing around the world, but in the two days since I recorded it, Insanity has upped by an Order of Magnitude. It’s impossible to keep pace with doom these days, at least if you do all the writing, recording and audio editing yourself and hold down a regular job. To be a comprehensive Doomer these days, you gotta go Full Time at it and you need a support staff of at least 4 people.
I’ll start tonight with ongoing bullshit in Ukraine, where apparently the 300 vehicle strong Ruskie Relief Convoy supposedly partnered with the International Red Cross was held up at the Ukrainian Border by the Ukies. THEY want to administer all this aid down in the conflict region, which generally would mean anybody that supports them gets some food, anybody in favor of lining up with Vlad the Impaler does not. Also, supposedly there are anti-aircraft missiles being transported along with the food supplies, which actually makes sense these days since just because vehicles are painted White to look like Humanitarian Vehicles instead of Green to look like Military ones is no guarantee some Top Gun won’t drop Death From Above on you.
Meanwhile on the Economic end of this war, the Obamanista and NATO continue to drop sanctions on Vlad the Impaler on everything EXCEPT Natural Gas, because the folks over in europe still need this stuff to keep the lights on and their McHovels warm this winter. Who does NOT get any NG though? The folks in Ukraine, who owe the Ruskies a few billion in toilet paper for gas they burned up a while back. Except where does the NG have to transit through to get from Russia to Europe? Ukraine! This is like saying you will drive a caravan full of juicy ribeye steaks through a country of starving people and hand them over to fat people on the other side to eat. Insanity….
