    The poor old USA gets sadder by the day and looks ever more ridiculous with the Clown in Chief and his henchmen floundering over one Edward Snowden.

    Of course the biggest Joke about John Kerry’s waffle here is that he himself betrayed the USA when it was engaged in Vietnam and undermined the war effort.

    How a creep like him survives is a mystery but has everything to do with America’s sorry decline

    The thread above about developing resources along with the predicable antipathy to doing this from the usual suspects reminded me of what it really is to live in the wilderness.

    Таёжный тупик – which was once upon a time translated into English as “Lost in the Taiga” tells of the Lykov family who fled civilization in the 1930s to live in Abakan Range in Siberia and who lived there without any other human contact for more than forty years until discovered by a party of geologists in 1978.

    The youngest Agafia Lykova lives there to this very day – This documentary is well worth your time even though the American Journalist who presents it doesn’t really understand or explain the history behind why the family ended up there or what this woman is about
