    Or can we? Haven't we taken enough blame for our involvement in other people's foreign affairs? Maybe it is time they settle it themselves. Why is it our job to do anything for them?
    The Crowd is not the sum of its parts.

    This was the corruption in the Ukraine and as for an 'austerity program", the Ukraine has no money. Why do you bother posting from these ridiculous blogs that only take up space?

    Another colossal monument to Viktor Yanukovych

    You're right, but people keep falling for it. I can understand a first term for BHO but a second defies credulity.

    Part of the problem is that there are no good options.

    It is us that Ukraine wants to be allies with.

We actually do have things like a school systems (pretty good schools actually), internet, government and all the same retail stores everyone else does. But when someone says "Have a blessed day" we don't get our panties in a wad about it. I'm actually from the Chicago suburbs originally and moved here on purpose. The guy I'm hunting with this weekend is a brilliant machinist. The guy from Ukraine who is handling my marketing has an engineering degree but lives almost off grid. We had to postpone our meeting because one of his goats had a kid. We are all business owners and have employees.

    So when we use terms like that it is to enforce a stereotype and make a joke. It's beautiful here, we don't want the "enlightened" crowd moving down here to change it.
    Fair enough Im in Southern California where its used as a slur, typically with a sneer. Mostly from liberals who think they are superior.

    Sounds to me like superiority is implied in the statement:

    "It's beautiful here, we don't want the "enlightened" crowd moving down here to change it."

    Sounds like it won't be beautiful anymore, which is implied superiority.

    That's what people do tho. Just saying.

    The root of the ptoblem is TV. If the boneheads would shut them off and surf the Internet for truthful information, there would be a sea change.
