I'm not certain I understand where you are coming from in this tirade, or what you think the U.S.A. should be doing in the Ukraine situation.
Me. I say stay the hell out of it.
Back almost 200 years ago the U.S.A. stuck up a "No Trespassing" sign on the Western Hemisphere called the Monroe Doctrine. It said that the New World was our sphere of influence and the Europeans powers should keep out. They pretty much honored it too.
Ukraine is Russia's front yard. It was part of Russia for more than 1,000 years before 1991. It is in Russia's sphere of influence. If the U.S. expects Russia or any other nation to respect the Monroe Doctrine, then we have to respect Russia's sphere of influence in Ukraine.
Think of it this way too. Suppose the Hispanic element in Texas was to take Texas out of the Union the way Ukraine was taken out of Russia in 1991. Then suppose the Anglo element there decided that they wanted to remain Americans. Would the U.S. tolerate any foreign power, Russia, China, or anybody else interfering in it? I don't think so.
I agree, we should let it be.

The Global Warming hysterics' propaganda says that Florida, the Gulf Coast, and the Sacramento Valley will be under the coastal sea, so it will be a trade out. There'll even be some fine ocean front property in Arizona to hear them tell it (I'm wondering where the beach will be. That desert sells cheap now, but when the oceans rise... Money to be made by the investor who buys now. Almost as sure a bet as stock in Solyndra was.) That's a lot of new navigable water - not to mention some mighty fine fishing.
What they failed to say is how many years that will be. Is that like 10 million years from now?

No. Most of the hysterics put the time frame for major sea level rises at about 100 years, just long enough to be far enough in the future to be unprovable but close enough to cause alarm to people who think, "Wait. My grand kids will be around then."

Global warming initiatives do more to harm this country than global warming could ever do. We have lost our standing as the worlds leading economy this year. China is now the largest economy in the world, and they don't give a shit about global warming. Environmentalists have destroyed the American dream for future generations.

It's so easy when you have a public stupid enough to ignore 97% of the world's experts in favor of everything they're fed by Fox "News" and talk radio.

Funny how "97% of the world's experts" agree on climate models that are 95% INACCURATE. Wow, I'm convinced the science is solid now.

That is what people would still be doing if environmentalist had been in control of human development for the last million years - living in caves, probably without fire, and eating roots, nuts, and rotten carrion left over from the lions' kills.

I am a supporter of coal, but even I am going to condemn this piece of stupid shit that is being spread around coal country:

"I guess this is the liberals idea of clean energy.Dont worry about dirty old coal,burn aborted babies for fuel instead.

PORTLAND, Ore. An Oregon county commission has ordered an incinerator to stop accepting boxed medical waste to generate electricity after learning the waste it's been burning may include tissue from aborted fetuses from British Columbia.

Sam Brentano, chairman of the Marion County board of commissioners, said late Wednesday the board is taking immediate action to prohibit human tissue from future deliveries at the plant that has been turning waste into energy since 1987.

"We provide an important service to the people of this state and it would be a travesty if this program is jeopardized due to this finding," he said in a statement. "We thought our ordinance excluded this type of material at the waste-to-energy facility. We will take immediate action to ensure a process is developed to prohibit human tissue from future deliveries."

Kristy Anderson, a British Columbia Health Ministry spokeswoman, told The Associated Press that regional health authorities there have a contract with a company that sends biomedical waste, such as fetal tissue, cancerous tissue and amputated limbs, to Oregon, where it's incinerated in the waste-energy plant.

The B.C. Catholic, a Vancouver-based newspaper, identified the plant as Covanta Marion, based in Brooks, Ore. When contacted by The AP on Wednesday, a Covanta Marion representative said he did not know if fetal tissue was included in shipments from Canada or elsewhere.

The facility is owned and operated by Covanta in a partnership with Marion County. According to its website, it processes 550 tons per day of municipal solid waste, generating up to 13 megawatts of energy sold to Portland General Electric.

Marion County estimates that the facility processes about 700 tons of in-county medical waste each year and about 1,200 tons from elsewhere, making it a small percentage of the total waste burned. Out-of-town medical waste is charged a higher fee."
