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 native Vermonter. I am a child of the 50s, 1951 to be exact. For much of my youth Vermont had one foot in the 19th century and one in the 20th century. The old ways coexisted with a world that was changing. We were sort of insulated in Vermont from much that was happening outside our state, but our little protective bubble was shrinking. My understanding of today has been greatly influenced by the past as the past was always part of our present in the Vermont of the 1950s and even the 60s. I am not much of a follower and like to do my own thinking. You will find my thoughts on many topics here. I value my family and a quiet existence in a very rural part of Vermont. I try to write clearly and simply. I hope you enjoy and thank you for visiting my site. Take care.
