The Republican party won the past election and they arrived in Washington D.C. expecting to run the place and pass their legislation. Most Republicans expected the dude from Africa to get out of their way and turn this nation over to the Koch Brothers. Alas, Republicans forgot that a second term president was not running again for that position and now enjoyed the position of telling one and all, “go fuck yourself!” The NEW Obama frankly does not give a damn about what Republicans seek as legislation and he will make their lives miserable. In one sense, it has become “pay back time” for the president who was constantly impeded in his desires to pass legislation. For the past six years Republicans have been able to block passage of laws, and now the president with his power of the veto is giving then a taste of their own medicine.
The sad aspect of the new Obama is that this attitude would have resulted in greater victories for Obama if only he had behaved in this approach six years ago instead of giving in to Wall Street fears and threats. He should have told Wall Street to go fuck itself and protected those in need rather than making the rich more wealthy.

I assume those under the age of thirty have scant memories of the good old days when the Soviet Union existed and ruled over most of eastern Europe including the eastern region of Germany. That was the time when secret police in the “Democratic” part of Communist Germany made certain they knew what you thought or did twenty four hours of the day. In order to protect East Germans from the filth that was pouring out of West Germany they even constructed walls and fields of mines. Sergei Naryshkin who is a member of the Russian Duma is rather upset at criticism of his nation’s actions in Ukraine or Crimea. He, along with some other Duma folk, are demanding a new referendum in Germany since the unification of that nation took place without one. “Unlike the Crimea” in which there was a free vote supervised by the Russian army, the German people never had the opportunity to decide if they wanted to be united.
Sounds fair to me. Of course, the end result of such a vote would undoubtedly result in Vladimir Putin becoming head of Germany and providing those people of his wisdom and bravery. Then again, the people of the South in America never had a referendum to decide about becoming part of the Union. It was all done by force of arms.
