Well, last night, with a nod to GROWING old together, I decided that I would attend the mid-May Lake Shore Michigan Gathering of Great Old Broads for Wilderness, “Sleeping with the Bear.” Then, this morning, I got a synchronous boost for my decision — via a message for the west from an old woman in Ukraine. She’s battling with other unarmed citizens to rewild her native land so recently “tamed” by EU/NATO rapscallery (yes, a new word, but it sure fits!).
Here’s part of her interview:
“We are happy that finally we will have our own channel that will show the truth. Channel 27 is now a people’s channel. We won’t allow anyone any more to slander us, lie about us and accuse us of all mortal sins. Now everyone will know the truth. We are not terrorists as Kiev and the West portray us; we are unarmed citizens. We don’t need arms, we’ll “kill” these parasites with our truth. I’m sending my personal hello to #Obama. I would have used some stronger Russian words to say what I think of Obama, but I won’t.”
“See, Obama, we, the people, have taken over this TV station – no, they have opened their doors for us, because this is the will of the people. Know, Obama, no one has ever been able to put Russia and Russians on their knees. You won’t either. This is our land, this is Russia. We support Slavyansk, Mariupol, Lugansk and all our cities where people were killed by Kiev (during recent attacks by Kiev military/nazis – LR). Shame on Turchinov and Yatsenyuk (unelected prez and PM of Ukraine – LR). They must get their stuff and get out of Ukraine together with their sold-out oligarchs. Leave our country alone. Go back to your handlers in the West.”
A.K. Here’s the context for her speech.
