Who Made the Tough on Russia List? Hint, no Republicans.

Trump (I almost typed “turnip” – wouldn’t be the first time) has recently been boasting “…Nobody was tougher on the Russians than I was…”

Well, yesterday, Russian announced a list of 13 Americans they are placing sanctions on (tit for tat sort of). The Americans on the new Russia sanction list are all Democrats, no Republicans, not even the vaunted “tough Trump.”

I am guessing that a bunch of Republicans are begging Putin to put them on the list so they can take some credit for being “tough on Russia.” I am guessing Putin made a big political “faux pas” here. Who is on the list and who is not is very revealing in itself.

The real “tough guys” didn’t make the cut here, even Lindsay Graham who wants to assassinate Putin or put out a contract on him. This is tough mob talk here Lindsay, real tough. Are you trying out for a part in a remake of “The Godfather?” Who’s playing the part of the Don? (pun intended).

I am a Vermonter, been one all my life. That just about tells you all you need to know. I am not much of a follower and like to do my own thinking. I value my family and a quiet existence in a very rural part of Vermont. There is a lot in the world I do not understand. My writing is my attempt to wrap my head around much that is swirling around me. Some time ago gasoline pumps changed to the way they look now. I had stopped to fill my Jeep and I could not get the gas to pump to save my life. I went inside and complained to the attendant. She knew me and said, "Ed, the whole world is changing and if you don't figure out the changes you are going to fall off the earth as it spins around." Well, I am not always successful figuring out the changes, but my writing is my way of working through some of them. I hope you enjoy.
