News Item:  The New York Times has been reporting on Ukrainian refugees seeking
asylum in the European Union.

I am only a chimp and I don't count too well ... is fourteen thousand more than one
and a half million?

Why do you ask?

Well, I am only a chimp but I know from reading other news from around the world
there are one and a half million Ukrainian refugees in Russia but the NYT here
doesn't mention them much when it talks about the fourteen thousand seeking
asylum in the EU.

That's because it gives us 'all the news that's print to fit' ... the government agenda.

No, no, you got that wrong it's 'fit to print'.  It says it here ...

That's what it says.  Humans don't say what they mean.  Remember before the Iraq
war the NYT had this human female reporting on all the WMDs in Iraq.  And two-thirds
of the people believed Iraq was responsible for 9/11.  None of it true.

And how many Iraqis died?

Upwards of a million and still counting, not to forget the five million plus refugees and
a country ripped apart.

Imagine losing everything, leaving home, separated from family, friends ... humans
are a cruel species.

Same in Libya, Yemen, Somalia, Syria, Ukraine ... everywhere millions of refugees,
terrified, trying to escape war ... and no sympathy, none from the countries that
ravaged them.

It's what happens when the big eagle's handler is weak or ineffective, a liar, or just
plain disgusting.

The disgusting one sickened the eagle, did he not ... by fattening bankers and
balancing the budget on the backs of the poor and the old.  It was called welfare
reform and the new COLA ... gave us many more homeless and pensions not
keeping pace with inflation.

It's all very sad ... and now all the multiple killings in the eagle's own nest.  When a
Christian does it, he is sick in the head; when a crazed Muslim does it, it is the
religion ...
