“I am not a woman, so I don’t have bad days.”
Putin in a new documentary by film maker Oliver Stone.
Russia’s prostitutes are “unquestionably the best in the world.”
Putin again. This time in a Bloomberg Politics interview. The issue came up when Putin was asked what dirt Russia had on Trump. Putin responded none. He further added he did not believe Trump cohorted with prostitutes while in Russia. It was at that point he added the best prostitutes in the world comment.
Why my setting forth the two quotes? Putin and Trump are leaders of two of the most powerful nations in the world. Both have dirty mouths. Never heard Eisenhower, Truman, or Reagan speak thusly.
There are more important things for leaders of powerful nations to talk about than a woman’s bodily function or who has the best prostitutes.
Never left the house yesterday. Researched and wrote. Started working on last night’s podcast at one in the afternoon.
Great topics. Interesting. From D-Day to Trump to government waste to European Union and African Islamists to inequality to flying cars.
Quite a variety.
Rained all night. Heavy. Raining heavy this morning. Going to rain all day and tonight. Streets will flood. I may not get out tonight.
June 15 is National Dump to Pump Day. Fifteenth annual one. The cry is not to drive your car. Take a bus, bicycle or walk.
City of Key West pushing the day. Want everyone to ride the bus. We ain’t got enough busses!
The City Commissioners also want us to drive cars less. They encourage bike riding. To reduce traffic congestion.
Very anti-automobile. I like my car and prefer driving it. Especially since I live three keys outside Key West. I cannot see myself riding on a bike on US 1 or the Boulevard. A sure auto/bicycle accident in the making. My old body involved.
Trump went to Saudi Arabia two weeks ago and sucked up to the Saudis and representatives of 53 other Arab nations. Turns out his visit has emboldened the Saudis. Great America is apparently on their side.
Two developments in the last 24 hours prove the point.
Iran was terrorized by ISIS. First any type terrorist attack in 10 years. Tehran no longer safe from ISIS.
Qatar has been warned by Saudi Arabia to change their tune and dance to Saudi Arabia’s dictates. The Saudis have blockaded little Qatar. Thirty six hours ago, ten conditions for Qatar to agree to were submitted by the Saudis to Qatar. Qatar was given 24 hours to agree. Otherwise the veiled threat of invasion.
Twenty four hours have passed. No agreement, no invasion. The fear of war continues to exist, however.
None of this would have happened had Trump not behaved as he did when he visited Saudi Arabia. Again, he emboldened the Saudis. His conduct gave tacit approval to Saudi Arabia to flex its muscle.
The problem with Iran is Sunni / Shite hatred for one another. They tolerated each other for 10 years. Till trump got involved with the Saudis.
I fear Trump is going to get us into a war. Not necessarily the Middle East. Somewhere. It’s a big world. He’s a loose cannon with a six shooter on his hip.
Enjoy your day!
